"By circling the wagons around Weinstein, you Hollywood, have lost what little credibility you had. You are a bunch of phonies and hypocrites. Maybe someday you will bet back to the city of dreams which you once were."
I was watching Jimmy Kimmel the other night and he really lit into Harvey Weinstein. Some of the best satire I have seen to date. Then I switched the channel over to watch Steven Colbert. His dialogue on Weinstein was even funnier! What? You missed it? I guess I did also. It seems Mr. Weinstein has enough weight (excuse the pun) in Tinsel Town to protect his vast array of sins. Hollywood, the bastion of progressive garbage, will bend over backwards to protect a sleazebag, only if he is one of their own.
Hollywood, who loves to slobber all over themselves at their lightly viewed award shows, loves, loves, loves to take shots at a Republican President - especially the current one. However, even with his imperfections, Donald Trump looks like a choirboy in comparison to Mr. Hollywood himself - Harvey Weinstein. Decades of trying to get naked with actresses has led to collective yawns from Hollywood. Decades of using his power to coerce young females to do things in return for Hollywood favors have led to even more yawns. In the real world, Weinstein would have been fired, sued or worse for what he has done to all these young ladies.
And a typical Weinstein movie has violence, sex, taking the Lord's name in vain (which for some reason, does not bother Weinstein), smoking, and more swearing than most sailors do in a career. This is the sewer, the purveyor of filth we now call Hollywood. A city which at one time could make movies so good, so rich in character, an entire family could watch them in comfort and safety. Now this animal farm called Hollywood preaches one thing and produces quite another.
Well guess what people of Weinstein's Hollywood? The good people of this county have about had it with your garbage. Notice how your numbers have been lately? We are rejecting your product more and more. Your humor is not funny, your violence is gratuitous, and the love scenes in your movies have become nothing more than lust scenes.
By circling the wagons around Weinstein, you Hollywood, have lost what little credibility you had. You are a bunch of phonies and hypocrites. Maybe someday Hollywood will get back to being the city of dreams like it once was. But that will never happen so long as you worship and protect the ilk of those like Harvey Weinstein.
