The scandal of all scandals is rocking Hollywood this week. Producer Harvey Weinstein’s, 20-year long assault on actresses is sending shockwaves coast to coast. Some of the biggest names in the business, like Ashley Judd and Meryl Streep, are speaking out on the issue. Many, are claiming to be Weinstein’s victims.
But, these women have something else in common-attacking President Trump.
Let’s face it, the news about Weinstein is not all that shocking. It’s Hollywood-land of sex, money, and immorality. However, what is shocking (if not infuriating) is the fact these women have stayed silent. Especially since they have no problem finding their voice when it comes to slamming the president.
Time and time again, “Tinsel Town” liberals rage against President Trump. Both men and women alike, call him sexist, misogynistic, and abusive towards women. When the, now infamous, Access Hollywood tape was released they had a field day trashing then-candidate Trump on social media.
Meanwhile, they were staying silent about Weinstein.
Judd, is a prime example. At the Women’s March in January, she took to the stage to read a vile poem called “I’m a Nasty Woman.” “I am a nasty woman,” Judd exclaims. “I’m not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetoh dust. I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol.”
Then there is Meryl Streep. Trump supporters will not soon forget her little temper-tantrum at the Golden Globes. Reiterating a false accusation against the president, she says “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence.” But, after 40 years in the industry and calling Weinstein a “god,” she posits she wasn’t aware of any abuse. Right.
Nevertheless, to be clear, these actresses are allegedly champions for women. Marching for equal pay, fighting for women’s rights, and speaking-out against sexual harassment. And yet, they still said nothing about Harvey Weinstein. As is the case with most leftists, their “cause” is not worthy enough to warrant personal sacrifices.
The sexual assault or harassment, of anyone, are indefensible crimes. Silence about these crimes for the sake of Academy Awards and fat paychecks is also indefensible. And coming from anti-Trump celebrities, it is the mother of all hypocrisies to say the very least. What Hollywood should be investing in, is a big, long “Walk of Shame.”
