Pedophilia, or the sexual abuse is an intolerable act against children and is a serious, life changing event for every victim.
The recent downfall of provocateur Milo Yiannopolous serves to highlight the need to take a strong stand against pedophilia.
Many actors, actresses and other Hollywood elite are in a position to take a forceful stand against such heinous behavior.
Here are the views of several well known Hollywood performers.
George Takei, who made his fame in the classic sci-fi show Star Trek discusses his first sexual encounter. Takei jokes about the interaction as a 13 year old child by a adult counselor as “It was both wonderful and scary and kind of intimidating, and delightful…”
Sex between a 13 year old and an adult is rape.
When Bill Maher jokes about a female adult raping a young boy, under the age of 14 when the abuse began, its funny.
I wonder if the victim and his family found the manipulation, betrayal of trust by a person in authority, and public humiliation entertaining?
Sarah Silverman can Tweet about sex with children, and no outrage there either? To Hollywood, as long as abuse is portrayed as a joke, the only appropriate response is laughter. I wonder if the same could be said of jokes about domestic violence against women? Maybe Silverman will Tweet pictures of beaten women or children for laughs next.
Roman Polanski, a French-Polish film director, was arrested and convicted of statutory rape of a 13 year old girl in 1977 when he was in his forties. Polanski admitted to administering drugs and alcohol to the child to just prior to the rape. Despite fleeing the country before completing his sentence, Polanski has been exonerated by Hollywood elites, and continues receive numerous awards for his work on the big screen as recently as 2011.
Whoopi Goldberg defended Polanski, stating, “I don’t believe it was rape rape.”
Someone should provide Goldberg with a dictionary.
Woody Allen has had questionable relationships with young girls including accusations by his own adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow starting, at the age of seven.
Interestingly, Allen was quoted in a 1976 People article as saying,
“I’m open-minded about sex. I’m not above reproach; if anything, I’m below reproach. I mean, if I was caught in a love nest with 15 12-year-old girls tomorrow, people would think, yeah, I always knew that about him.” Allen pauses. “Nothing I could come up with would surprise anyone,” he ventures helplessly. “I admit to it all.”
Twelve year olds?
Allen later went on to marry another adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn. Allen is yet to face any serious repercussions to his career.
Elijah Wood accuses Hollywood elites as regularly preying on child actors and refers to these people as “vipers.”
“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” said Wood. “There is darkness in the underbelly. What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: they can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged.”
Crickets . . .
In the past, the left used racism as the ultimate character assassination. Overplaying that card has resulted in a public numb to the accusations. Ironically, the ever insightful liberal left now uses accusations of pedophilia as the preferred method to silence opposing views.
Quite the double standard. Conservatives expect nothing less from the left. Smear campaigns like these will sway the few who choose to listen to the lies of the main stream media. Stronger minded individuals will do their own research and search out the truth.
Conservatives, already suspicious of the media’s version of the “truth” will use the false smear campaigns against other conservatives as a battle cry for truth. We will continue to speak out, no matter how the main stream media struggles to silence us.
