    That's hardly clandestine though. Not excusable, but everyone knows the porn industry is seedy as.

    I thought everybody knew Hollywood was seedy as too.

    I think you'd be hard pressed to find any top shelf actress in the history of Hollywood who hadn't at least been subjected to the hard word from producers / agents / big name male actors at some point in their career. Common knowledge that this is rife throughout the industry. Of course, not all of these actresses would accept these advances and a lot of them still make it in the industry anyway.

    In Hollywood, Opening legs has always led to opening doors.

    Harvey Weinstein would be just one of dozens or even hundreds of creeps in Hollywood.

    Hollywood has more skeletons in its closet than the Vatican has pedophiles hiding behind the curtains

    So you're trying to link sexual crimes with being a leftist thing?

    Sometimes you're just a f**king idiot.

    no madunit

    im simply saying hollywood is overwhelmingly of the left. and strangely many of them seem pretty happy to look the other way when it comes to their own self interest, even if when it involves the rape of children

    says a lot about the character of the people that many would applaud the next time they step on stage to rubbish trump - or preach about the next 'big' issue// my comment was in relation to petes 'theyre all creeps' post. it certainly seems like it, and theyre all lefties too

    the fact that these morons are put on some sort of pedestal to preach to the dumb public about whats right and wrong says a lot

    They are all socially liberal yes. I dont know how economically leftwing hollywood producers types would be. They are arguably one of the cancers upon the modern day left.

    But to be frank i wouldnt give a shit if hollywood and other areas of support for the neoliberal left literally sank into the ocean. Ive been extremely critical of liberals particularly liberal celebrities in the past. I have no interest defending some obese degenerate sex pest on the grounds of us agreeing on some political issues. Ill leave that for the right and trump.

    That said if someone tells a funny joke i will laugh that is why i said it makes no difference how talented they are. Plenty of horrific people are extremely talented at their craft. That shouldnt be a cover for their shit human status but it also doesnt really change the quality of their art.

    I don't think your going to see people come out in defence of multi millionaire Hollywood producers.

    Fox News culture of sexual harassment and cover ups seems to show that it's definitely not just "da left"

    they seem like the type who are probably very generous with other peoples money

    of course not. it just speaks volumes of their character.

    these same people are very much on the left ideologically

    One other thing, sexual harassment is a very subjective thing

    If it were Brad Pitt he'd be balls deep in them

    Harvey weinstein, crucified.

    What makes you think they are economically left wing at all ? They obviously put no pressure on the democratic party to move to the left on the economy.

    There wasnt tons of hollywood money supporting bernard but there was tons of it behind Clinton who was a neoliberal with socially liberal politics.



    So ?

    Roger ailes was very much on the right ideologically. Thatcher counted among her friends a man who raped a mind boggling amount of children and another man who had women raped by dogs

    Does this mean anything about the right ?
