So lets just pick a place. Randomly, lets just pick Polanski and his Hollywood protectors, deniers of facts, and holier than thou actors claiming what Polanski did 30 years ago as not actually "rape-rape." Um, lets think this through shall we? About 30 years ago, Roman Polanski drugged a 13 year old, and over and over again, against her verbal dissent ("no"), and I say verbal because quaaludes and champagne sort of stop necessary muscles from actually protecting one's self, repeatedly (can't point this out enough) raped and sodomized her.
Then because he plead down the charge of rape to sexual assault of an underage child or some such trite plea, he was hoping the judge would be lenient in sentencing and give him time served, but when he became suspicious that the judge wouldn't hold to a pre-believed bargain which the judge didn't have to honor, old Roman fled to France.
Then the Swiss arrest him (and aren't going to let him go, yea them), holding him for extradition to the US to face what he has been hiding from for the past 30 years. Lets be real clear about this, the justice system moves very slowly, but it still moves. If it didn't we wouldn't be free. What is the saying, the wheels of justice turn very slowly but grind ever so fine.
Now here is the most unbelievable part of this story, the Hollywood elites like it-wasn't-rape-rape-Whoopi Goldberg, Harrison Ford who divorced his wife to date looks-like-pre-teen-girl-Calista Flockhart, incestuous Woody Allen who married his adopted daughter (for all intents and purposes it was his daughter too) and other idiots in the Hollywood circle signed a "free Roman" petition that was started by the head of Miramax films?!?!?!?!?!??!?! WHAT THE HELK IS GOING ON IN HOLLYWOOD?
Do they really believe they have high moral standards? Do they really believe we, the people, should listen to anything they say EVER? The reason and the only reason they are protecting this filthy pedophile is because he is a great film producer? Because he is "one of them" who shouldn't be held to the standards of mere mortals like the rest of us? Get real Hollywood. Wake up idiots.
Now here is my dilemma. I have agreed (pre-polanski petition) to review the film The Boys Are Back by Miramax, and I have two tickets for my area to give away. I am truly torn by giving my word and then this petition signing breaks and my not really wanting to do any thing for the Hollywood elites. Truly unless there is an apology to the nation and to the victim of Polanski's actions is made, I will not endorse anyone spending money on a Miramax film no matter how good the film. The actors have been paid for their work so the hurt will be in the pocket of Miramax only at this point.
If you happen to be within 30 miles of Memphis and wish to go I will give the tickets to the first person who comments. The show is for October 13 a Tuesday night. If the company reads this and rescinds their offer I will honor their decision. It really makes me ill that people would truly stand up and defend this very sick person who has never been ashamed of his predilection for little girls even claiming every man wishes to do what he did.
