6. It’s Not Rape-Rape If Someone We LIKE Does It
You know, we thought the celebrity Left had reached the lowest nadir with their odious and utter disregard of Mary Jo Kopechne’s life, because her death scored them some sweet, sweet “progressive” policy making. But Hollywood’s reaction to Roman Polanski’s arrest hit a new and disgusting low. The rape of a child is hunky-dory because they dig the guy’s “art” and his so-called liberal thought. First, we were told it wasn’t really rape by that bastion of idiocy, Whoopi Goldberg:
“I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and when they let him out he was like ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me a hundred years in jail I’m not staying,’ so that’s why he left.”
Relax, rubes. It was just regular rape, not rape-rape! I suppose they figured “Well, at least he tried not to get her pregnant. What’s a little sodomy? At least that way she wouldn’t be “punished with a baby.” Sheesh! Chill, you uncultured wingnuts! Plus, it’s not like he disagrees with Obama!”
It wasn’t just Whoopi, either. There was an actual petition to Release Polanski:
Woody Allen, David Lynce and Martin Scorsese today added their names to a petition demanding the immediate release of Roman Polanski from detention in Zurich. The director was arrested on Saturday over a three-decade-old underage sex case when he arrived to receive a lifetime achievement award at the city’s film festival.
“Film-makers in France, in Europe, in the United States and around the world are dismayed by this decision,” says the petition, which is co-ordinated by the Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques (SACD), a film industry organisation which also represents performance and visual artists. “It seems inadmissible to them that an international cultural event, paying homage to one of the greatest contemporary film-makers, is used by police to apprehend him,” it adds.
Shocking. Woody Allen protested? Who would have thunk it? I mean, he’s such a paragon of virtue and always looking out for the welfare of children. In his bed, natch.
At least one jury member, producer Henning Molfenter, has now boycotted the festival, with others expected to follow suit. “There is no way I’d go to Switzerland now. You can’t watch films knowing Roman Polanski is sitting in a cell 5km away,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. France’s Society of Film Directors joined in the chorus of disapproval, voicing concern that the arrest “could have disastrous consequences for freedom of expression across the world”.
You sick bastards. Sorry, but there is no other way to say it. If we knew that Polanski was sitting in a cell approximately 10 miles away (we refuse to use your ridiculous metric system, and are sticking with miles) we’d be absolutely thrilled. He is a pedophilic rapist. What do y’all not understand about that?
And “disastrous consequences for freedom of expression?” The freedom to express pedophilia? Drugging and raping (yes, “rape-rape”) a 13-year-old CHILD. Who repeatedly said no. Repeatedly. Who was scared out of her mind, yet this “man” continued to use and abuse her in various ways. Over and over again until he “freely expressed” his own sick enjoyment, for which he felt no remorse. He didn’t even believe he had done anything wrong:
“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”
Wow, how enlightened and cultured you all are. No wonder you see yourselves as Better Than Us/Smarter Than Us. You see, we dumb redneck-y Ugly Americans don’t think it is cool to rape kids. It is becoming quite apparent that YOU do. To you, David Letterman’s serial sexual harassment is fine, as are his “knocked up” jokes about 14-year-old girls. That’s just super awesome as long as you hate the kid’s icky Conservative Mommy. Woody Allen statutorily raping his own adopted child is totally cool, too, because he thinks the right way politically and he’s “arty.” And Roman Polanski’s arrest, for pedophilic rape, makes you “dismayed.” The rape itself? No big whoop, right?
You’ve lost your Racist ™ card; it’s been overused and the scanner no longer works. You’ve lost your Sexist/Feminist card due to exposing yourselves with Palin and Kophechne, among others. Now you’ve lost your For The Children card. You do not care about children; in fact, you USE them to further your agendas.
As for Roman Polanski, I so hope he enjoys jail. Don’t worry, Roman. It’s not “rape-rape.”
