#METOO – #ME(N)TOO

Let’s make it absolutely clear – sexual assault is unacceptable. Pretty much every sane person on the planet gets that. Once again we have liberal elites, led by Alyssa Milano, all of a sudden taking to social media to run the #METOO campaign to highlight an issue they could have easily raised years ago. Now they turn on their former paymaster and sexual predator in chief Weinstein they have all of a switched from blissfully unaware to full throttle because they can. Men who do not wish to be seen as unsupportive have launched a counter campaign #IWILL so as to avoid any untoward  shaming. My two questions to Milano are:

1) If you knew that Weinstein was a predator surely you could have run this #METOO campaign from the get go. Since it was an open secret why didn’t you start #METOO at that time or was it you chose to put your career above the issue?

2) on New Year’s Eve in Cologne 2016, the German federal government gagged the police and the media to cover up mass sexual assaults perpetuated against women. Regardless of who the perpetrators were, after the scandal broke where was Milano protesting #METOO for the fact that the Mayor of Cologne recommended German women wear less revealing clothes so as to avoid being harassed or assaulted by their new arrivals? You were absolutely silent.

Lets be very clear. My daughter was the victim of sexual assault on a crowded train in Tokyo at age 13. When I got the message I downed tools at work and went straight to her school to see how she was. I am not sure whether I was more shaken then her. Possibly. I rode on the train every morning for the better part of two months to see if I could get her to identify the attacker. In my mind I had no qualms about exercising street justice on this pig. I was not in the slightest bit worried about the repercussions to me. My daughter’s safety and mental well-being trumped all else. We haven’t caught him.

So to have Milano virtue signaling about all these evil men perhaps she should take a knee to her own cause by knowing the overwhelming majority of men out there absolutely abhor any form of sexual assault and are more likely to defend women’s rights more than she can possibly dream of. This sanctimony must end. The stereotyping must also cease. The #IWILL campaign smacks of this liberal brainwashing which becomes nothing more than an attempt to sound pious over issues they’ve conveniently ignored until they can get some mileage.

Watch Corey Feldman’s interview on pedophilia with Barbara Walters where she criticizes him for “could destroy[ing] an entire industry” rather than face harsh realities.

So Alyssa in all  honestly your campaign seems more about giving your own career a jump start rather than protecting  all those real victims of assault. Your actions to date would suggest that.

Indeed the bigger danger is that innocent men may all of a sudden be forced to defend themselves if allegations from disgruntled former partners or women who willingly consented to sex feel there is an ambulance chasing opportunity. Maybe on the fringe but still a concern. Why is there no mention of female sexual predators and assaults against men? How many cases of female high school teachers having sex with underage boys have surfaced in recent times? I guess that doesn’t fit the narrative of “speaking out”.

No Oscars for honesty. Plenty for hypocrisy

As the dirty laundry of Hollywood gets aired how many celebrities forgot that the internet has a half life of infinity and that there are trolls that will go to the ends of the earth to dig up things actors did in the past. Whether it be Jimmy Kimmel asking young girls to fondle his crotch to see if they could tell what the bulge was or Ben Affleck grabbing a handful of reporters’ breasts one thing is for sure, the public have such a low opinion of celebrities that one wonders why the Democrats want these liberal elites championing their causes. This video at election time last year spoofing the previous one done by Hollywood actors (who by the way made jokes about Mark Ruffalo ‘showing his dick’ if they registered – I mean how funny is that!?!? NOT.) was perhaps one of the best send ups which summarises why they should just stick to film making and shut up about everything else.

Listen to this Golden Globes speech by Meryl Streep and put all of her words she made about the President in the context of the then untouchable Weinstein as she said,

when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose”

We need the principled press to hold them to account..”

”I only ask that the famously well heeled foreign Hollywood press and all of us…to supporting the committee to protect journalists…to protect them going forward…we’re going to need them…and they’ll need us too…to safeguard the truth…”

Isn’t it a privilege to be an actor?…yes it is and we have to remind ourselves of the privilege and responsibility of the act of empathy

How prophetic those words are given the denial of the real culture of Hollywood. That as vulgar as the man she accused in her speech isn’t it ironic that her privileges were in part granted by safeguarding people from the truth by protecting the very journalists who turned a blind eye to the bullies so they wouldn’t be held to account. Which part is the act of empathy? Not even sympathy.
