This Harvey Weinstein story is absolutely off the wall crazy. Here we have liberals in Hollywood who have been lecturing us for decades about how they are the moral authority on right and wrong while at the same time aiding and abetting this monster producer for decades. Aiding and abetting is not an inappropriate description either. You are kidding yourself if you think for one second that people in Hollywood didn’t know that Weinstein was doing inappropriate things for decades.
Here’s Seth McFarlane joking about it a few years back if you still aren’t convinced.

Funny joke right?
I don’t think the 3 women who accused Harvey of rape this week think so.
In case you missed it, here’s the latest report that absolutely destroys any credibility Hollywood icon Harvey Weinstein had left.
From The New Yorker:
Three women—among them Argento and a former aspiring actress named Lucia Evans—told me that Weinstein raped them, allegations that include Weinstein forcibly performing or receiving oral sex and forcing vaginal sex. Four women said that they experienced unwanted touching that could be classified as an assault. In an audio recording captured during a New York Police Department sting operation in 2015 and made public here for the first time, Weinstein admits to groping a Filipina-Italian model named Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, describing it as behavior he is “used to.” Four of the women I interviewed cited encounters in which Weinstein exposed himself or masturbated in front of them.
Donald Trump bragged that women let you get away with sexual advances when you are rich on a bus when he didn’t know anyone was listening. Harvey Weinstein raped 3 people and masturbated in front of others. There is no moral equivalency there. It is insane for liberals to say otherwise. But, Lauren Duca and others did anyway. It didn’t go well.
A) Surprised Hillary's enabling history is cool with you.
B) Surprised that bothers you more than rape.
C) DC & NYC are different places. https://t.co/BLbQz1RpKD

We know that Weinstein got fired. An easy move.
But, Harvey just got even more bad news that really speaks to the core of what is going on here. His wife is leaving him.
From The Hill:
Film producer Harvey Weinstein’s wife Georgina Chapman announced Tuesday that she would be leaving her husband following mounting accusations of sexual harassment and assault against the Hollywood veteran.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” Chapman said in a statement to People magazine.
I’m certainly no expert on marriage but I’ve been around long enough to know that if Harvey was innocent of these charges his wife would stick around. Clearly, she knows he did something wrong.
And the fact he did something wrong is the whole reason why this story is so big. This story was big even if Harvey just tried to inappropriately touch someone. For two reasons, any unwanted advance on a woman who doesn’t want it or doesn’t reciprocate it is wrong. And, the liberal left in this country has pretended for decades that they are the ones who defend women. Hillary, Obama, Clooney, Damon, Streep. Every liberal in Hollywood was friends with this guy while also parading around bashing Trump for a secretly recorded conversation a million years ago.
The hypocrisy here is deafening and the failure of Hollywood to adequately condemn Weinstein speaks volumes.
