Harassment

Carving Up Fox News


cjones10252017

Conservatives and Republicans had a field day going after Harvey Weinstein after it was revealed he spent decades using his power in Hollywood to sexually harass young, wannabe starlets.

You would think the people who were silent over the sexual harassment allegations against their idols Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, and Donald Trump would be smart enough to continue to keep their traps shut. They should have had as much to say about Weinstein as they did about former Republican Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert. In case you need a reminder, they had nothing to say about Hastert and his pedophilia.

I saw a post by a conservative colleague of mine defending Trump, as if everything against him was only allegations. This same guy frequently refers to Bill Clinton as a rapist.

I’ve seen about two dozen cartoons on Weinstein from people who never touched the stories on conservatives, while liberal cartoonists haven’t held back on Weinstein. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted about Weinstein, momentarily forgetting he’s the son of a man who brags about assaulting women, barging in on teenage girls while they’re undressing, and openly cheated on Jr’s mother. Donald Trump himself went after Weinstein, because he’s a shameless hypocrite, and it was easier to discuss than American troops being killed in Niger.

People like Ted Cruz, who voted and supported Donald Trump for president went after Weinstein as if they actually have an issue or care at all about sexual harassment.

When it comes to hypocrisy, nobody beats the sorry excuses for journalists at Fox News, a bastion of hypocrisy.

There was much outrage all over the media, not just over Weinstein’s decades of sexually harassing women, but also over the fact that his company, and an entire industry, allowed him to get away with it. There were clauses in Weinstein’s contract, not that he’d be fired for harassment, but that there would be penalties to be paid.

Fox News didn’t just report on this, a few of their talking fucks had to express their own personal outrage.

I’m not one for giving parenting advice, but to future parents out there I would advise you never name your kid “Tucker.” That kid will grow up to become a bow tie-wearing asshole who says shit like, ““many powerful people knew what Harvey Weinstein was doing, and not only ignored his crimes, but actively took his side against his many victims.” Shit like that is why Tuckers are constantly getting beat up and receiving swirlies.

Let’s play with Tucker’s sentence. ““many powerful people knew what Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes were doing, and not only ignored their crimes, but actively took their side against their many victims.” Why didn’t you say that, Tucker?  Do you honestly believe sexual harassment is a partisan issue that is only committed by Democrats and supported by their benefactors? Or, are you just a d-bag, partisan, hypocritical, shameless, idiot?

As it was revealed over the weekend, after Bill O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment lawsuit for $32 million, his employer, FOX FUCKING NEWS, where Tucker Carlson works, rewarded him with a new contract….and the company knew about the settlement. And, they allow fuckers like Tucker to go on the air and bemoan the scandal of movie studios, Hollywood in general, and Democrats of ignoring and taking Weinstein’s side.

But, there’s more. Tucker is not the only hypocritical sorry son of a bitch working at Fox News. Sean Hannity went after Weinstein also and said, “Liberals love to be so sanctimonious, holier than thou, but they’re really hypocrites.” Yes, Hannity. Liberals are the hypocrites here. I’m shocked he could make that statement with a mouthful of Trump’s meatloaf.

Hypocrisy is what Fox News has done. They’ve renewed contracts of known sexual harassers and then allowed these two scumbags to go on the air and bitch about companies who looked the other way for that kind of crap.

Maybe, the jerks at Fox News don’t understand how hypocrisy works. Or maybe, they don’t believe it applies to them.

Or just maybe, they’re afraid if they speak the truth that the old-craggly-ass-stupid-fucker demographic will change the channel.

Partisan Perversions


cjones10102017

It doesn’t matter if someone agrees with your politics or not, wrong is wrong.

Many Republicans continue to bring up Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and the multiple accusations leveled on him from women, despite the fact it all happened over 20 years ago (they keep playing the hits, relevancy be damned). These same people are real quiet about the charges against Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump, and the late Roger Ailes. They definitely keep their mouth shut over the pedophilia of former Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert.

With the revelations that big-time movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is just as bad as Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes, Democrats have an opportunity to show they’re less hypocritical than Republicans. We’ll see how they handle it. According to The New York Times, Weinstein has been paying off accusers for decades. Please note that this story was broken by the “fake news” liberal media, not Fox News or Breitbart.

Weinstein isn’t just a big deal in Hollywood. He’s huge. He co-founded Miramax with his brother, and after selling that company to Disney they founded The Weinstein Company. The man has been involved with huge films like Pulp Fiction, The Crying Game, Shakespeare In Love, Gangs Of New York, The English Patient, Good Will Hunting, Chocolat, The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The King’s Speech, Inglourious Basterds, and way too many movies with Ben Affleck. Seriously. Go check out the Wiki page. It’s Affleck, Affleck, Affleck, Affleck, etc. He even gave us Jersey Girl. He is a bastard. But, he is such a giant in Hollywood, that a putrid turd like Jersey Girl doesn’t hurt. It only hurt Jennifer Lopez, and she was only in that movie for three minutes.

So, when a guy like Harvey Weinstein says to an actress, “let me strip down so you can give me a massage while I consider whether you should be in my movie or not,” there’s a little of pressure.

What is the deal with these old, creepy bastards? It’s never “hey, would you like to go out sometime?” No. It’s always the nude massage trick or calling you up to tell you that he’s not wearing any pants which is accompanied by heavy breathing.

While it’s terrible that a rich jerk like Donald Trump believes that being a star allows you to grab whoever and whatever you want, it’s equally if not more despicable to believe you can grab whoever and whatever based on your ability to create a star.

Weinstein has been fired from his own company. He stated,  “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it.” An adviser described him as “an old dinosaur learning new ways.” The fact that his behavior was commonplace a long time ago doesn’t make it right or acceptable, not then and not now. It’s a horrible excuse. Especially for someone who has spent years supporting liberal causes, which includes equality. It’s a national disgrace that it must be a partisan issue.

Weinstein has contributed to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Barack Obama. Obama’s daughter, Malia, even interned for him. He’s contributed to many other Democrats, with three, Senators Al Franken, Patrick Leahy, and Martin Heinrich, contributing his donations to women advocacy groups. That money has predator germs, so they’re getting rid of it.

Republicans are jumping all over this. Fox News is highlighting the time Michelle Obama said Weinstein was a “wonderful person,” forgetting that their entire organization operated like a frat house for Ailes and O’Reilly. Even Trump, with a straight face, criticized Weinstein saying, “I’m not at all surprised,” yet he was defensive of Ailes, O’Reilly, and himself saying his own admittance of assaulting women was just “locker room talk.”

Republicans are hypocrites. We already knew that. Liberals need to take this opportunity to show they’re better than them and reject Weinstein and his money.
