Spare me Hollywood’s nauseating hypocrisy over Will Smith — these same people gave Roman Polanski an Oscar after he raped a child

There are few better illustrations of Tinsel Town’s warped morality than the shocking case of acclaimed film director Roman Polanski who was 44 when he drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl. 

He admitted unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor but before he received his full sentence, he fled America in 1978 and has never returned to face justice for his despicable crime.

Now, given Hollywood’s current fit of faux-indignant moral rage over Will Smith’s slap to Chris Rock’s face, and its frantic effort to cancel him off the face of the acting planet, you might assume that it reacted with far greater fury and disgust to someone who abused and sodomized a young girl after plying her with quaaludes.

But you would be wrong.

Instead, Hollywood carried on hiring Polanski to direct movies from his European exile, and in 2003, it awarded him the Oscar for Best Director at the Academy Awards for his work on The Pianist.

Of course, he wasn’t there to receive it in person … … …

Once again I find myself on the same side of an argument as Piers Morgan.  What’s the world coming to?  Who’s moving which way?

I really don’t care what “celebrities” do or say.  And, especially when the hypocrisy is overflowing.

That goes for politicians, bureaucrats, and “experts” who are out of their area of expertise.  

In this case, Piers Morgan is spot on and “over the target”.

Careabout

RANT: Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers; Biden has earned the scorn of the electorate

PIERS MORGAN: President Biden’s shameful move to muzzle the US media is a cynical and desperate Kim Jong-un style attempt to hide the fact that his presidency is turning into a total disaster

It’s the kind of thing that regularly happens in Russia, China or North Korea.

When journalists stray too far above their totalitarian-controlled station and dare to hold their political leaders to any form of proper account, they get a visit or phone call from shady Government officials.

*** and ***

I wonder what it could have been that suddenly turned the media so negative against the President?

Oh wait, I remember.

  • August was when the cowardly leader of the free world threw millions of Afghanistan women to the Taliban wolves with his shocking sudden withdrawal of US troops, betraying American allies and costing many lives.
  • Then he authorized a disastrous botched drone strike on a terror suspect in Kabul that killed an innocent family of 10 including women and children.
  • In September, fresh mayhem erupted on the Southern border due to catastrophic mixed messaging from the Biden administration and Americans watched in horror as US border patrol horsemen charged into Haitian migrants. The President shamefully blamed his guards for the chaos, not himself for causing it.
  • In October, Biden tried to criminalize American parents who protested against their kids being taught woke agenda subjects like Critical Race Theory by encouraging the National Schools Board Association to disgracefully brand them ‘domestic terrorists.’
  • Later that month, America ground to a virtual shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country.
  • This was a direct consequence of Biden’s reckless desire to behave like an all-year-round Santa Claus with his massive Covid-19 stimulus spending spree that sparked the inflation that provoked this crisis.
  • Prices surged, especially at the fuel pump, wages stagnated, and vast swathes of the American workforce quit their jobs because their President made it more economically beneficial for people to stay at home than go to work.

Yet far from the media giving Biden a tougher time than Trump over all this, as Milbank suggests, most of them went out of their way to defend him.

Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers.  Despite being on a different page politically than he is, here I think he is spot on.

As Bill Clinton always said “It’s the economy stupid”.  And Sleepy Old Joe has screwed the pooch on that one.

Single handedly, killing the Keystone pipeline and making US oil difficult to get out of the ground, he has take the US from net-exported to begging OPEC for help.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Piers has assembled a great list of the difficulties that Joe has put himself in.

SECESSION: Let the Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah goes it own way to the hell they want

PIERS MORGAN: All hail Emperor Newsom, the woke dictator fiddling with one pointless PC policy at a time while crime-ravaged California burns

Empowered by his recent recall election win, Newsom fired off a raft of laws that included making it illegal to use gas-powered ‘off-road engine engines’ including leaf-blowers, lawn mowers and golf carts, ordered schools to teach all students ‘ethnic studies’, and large toy stores to have gender-neutral sections.

The first will cause huge financial pain to millions of Californians, especially to the 50,000 small businesses it directly effects, for minimal benefit to the environment.

The second has sparked fears of critical race theory now becoming a mandated subject in schools, something that many think will increase racial tension and division rather than heal it.

Once again, I am forced to agree with Pier Morgan again about Emperor Newsom.

California should be allowed to go its own way and not drag the rest of us along by Pelosi, Boxer, et al.

Much better for all involved.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Protesting parents are NOT domestic terrorists

Above all, I will defend to the last drop of my blood the right of any parent to want to protect their child.

In the end, isn’t that the overriding job of a parent – to keep their children from harm’s way until they’d old enough to look after themselves?

That doesn’t mean I will always agree with what a parent wants for their child.

In fact, many times I may vehemently disagree.

But I will always support their right to have an opinion on what is best for their child because nobody knows their own child better than a caring parent.

And the First Amendment of the US Constitution permits parents to express those opinions as vigorously as they want.

Yet in a stunning, and very sinister move, President Biden has apparently decided that they don’t.

*** and ***

If parents are no longer allowed a say in how their children are educated, and indeed are to be categorised as domestic terrorists for doing so, then why should they continue paying taxes to pay for that education?

President Biden has declared war on America’s parents and their right to free speech, and it’s a shameful abuse of his power.

I understand the drive for “homeschooling”.  Unfortunately, not everyone can do that.

P.S., I can’t believe how much I’m agreeing with  PIERS MORGAN.  Which one of us is changing?

WHITE HOUSE PETITION CALLS FOR…DEPORTING PIERS MORGAN OVER ANTI-GUN VIEWS

Posted on December 22, 2012 at 3:54pm by Madeleine Morgenstern

*** begin quote ***

A new online White House petition is calling for CNN’s Piers Morgan to be deported for “attacking the Second Amendment” following the Connecticut elementary school massacre.

“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment,” the petition states. “We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

*** and ***

“Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for ‘attacking 2nd Amendment rights’ – is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?” Morgan wrote.

*** end quote ***

Interesting, but true.

Does the Constitution limit the power of the Federal Government?

As old Lysander taught us: “It’s just GD peive of paper”. Oh no, that was one of the many “presidents”. Spooner pointed out how the Consititution is of “no effect”.

Now the American People can apply “market discipline” to the Brit. If he’s anathema to the American Public, (think Jane Fonda’s ability to take a lover at Vetran’s convention — not very likely if she was the last woman on Earth!), then maybe he’ll understand the role of being a guest in someone  else’s country. Didn’t the Brits forbid Michael Savage from goign to London to speak?

But we know the Constitution is powerless to reign the abuse of the Federal Gooferment, so maybe the abuse of this person’s First Amendment rights would be instructive.

Maybe the Sheeple would get the message?

Then they will ask what is the difference between one nut killing children in CT and the USA killing children aka “collateral damage” in AfPak?

Anyone wonder why we aren’t beloved?

Argh!
