Oh, the progressive socialist hypocrisy abounds. Remember the ranting from the left about the GOP “war on women?” Recall how Hillary Clinton railed, and still does, about sexism being a reason for her not becoming the first female president? Are you just tired of how the liberal progressive left attempts to appear so sanctimonious and righteous when it comes to issues involving women, such as sexual harassment? My, my, my, I shall pass some Grey Poupon to my dear leftist friends to go with that crow they must now be eating.
As reported by the Free Beacon, “Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer who is facing numerous accusations of sexual harassment, has given hundreds of thousands to Democratic campaigns and committees since the early 2000s, a review of federal election filings show.
The New York Times reported Thursday that Weinstein has paid settlements to eight different women stemming from sexual harassment allegations. Many more women had said they were harassed but did not receive a settlement. Weinstein—who has been politically active for decades, backing a number of big name Democrats—has poured hundreds of thousands into campaigns and committees that include the likes of former President Barack Obama and failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Weinstein has hosted numerous fundraisers for Obama and Clinton, with celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Matthew Broderick attending glitzy events for Clinton this past election cycle. Weinstein owns a home next door to a $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons previously rented, and he has maxed out donations ($5,400) to Clinton’s failed presidential campaign while adding more than $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and more than 30 state Democratic parties. He has also given at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Weinstein gave $5,000 in donations to Obama’s 2012 campaign, with another $66,000 going to his victory fund.”
And former first lady Michelle Obama, who chided women who voted for Donald Trump as “voting against their own voice,” praised Harvey Weinstein in 2013 as “a wonderful human being.” This is the sick hypocrisy of the left, and demonstrates the abysmal level of character and dignity of the Hollywood elites. Yet, these are the folks who constantly want to lecture, condemn and play the dubious game of inane righteous indignation. There is no way anyone can convince me that Weinstein’s aberrant behavior wasn’t widely known…just as with former President Bill Clinton.
But when it’s the left, the rules do not apply. Can you just imagine if this were some major GOP donor? This story would be blazing all over the liberal progressive media and there would be public shaming, lists of all the folks who had received donations from said donor on MSNBC, and elsewhere. But, what do you hear from the complicit progressive media outlets? Yep, you got it right, just chirping, and the silence is rather telling. The leftists love to gather together and force all Republicans to either condemn or be seen as accepting of the behavior of one person. Remember, that story about the sexual abuse of the former Seattle mayor was hardly heard. As a matter of fact, again, there was silence…he of course suddenly resigned.
Weinstein abused women, he demanded sexual favors for advancement in positions. Weinstein was the embodiment of all the liberal progressive socialist left tells is they’re against. Yet here again, the hypocrisy is laughable, he was also one of the biggest Democrat donors. This goes right along with the progressive socialist left saying the GOP is full of white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Yet, the safeguarded leftist group Planned Parenthood was founded by a white supremacist and racist, Margaret Sanger. And the biggest donor to the leftists’ movements in America, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, was a doggone Nazi collaborator, George Soros. Folks, you just cannot make this stuff up!
These leftists are the ones who want higher taxes on everyday Americans and small business owners…yet they seek out every tax break that they can, especially Hollywood. These are the folks who tell us we’re xenophobic because we do not accept illegal immigration, while they separate themselves from the rest of us, and probably have illegals working for them.
Here is the list of Democrats who took money from Weinstein: “Sens. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has received $14,200 from Weinstein since the early 2000’s; Cory Booker (D., NJ) has taken $7,800; Kirsten Gillibrand (D., NY) was given $11,800; Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) $5,600; Sidney Blumenthal (D., Conn. ) $5,400; Al Franken (D., Minn.) $10,000; Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) $5,000 ; Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) $1,000; Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I. ) $1,000; and Martin Heinrich (D., NM), who has received $5,400 from Weinstein just this year. Weinstein has contributed six-figure sums to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC). Weinstein has given more than $100,000 to the DNC while tens of thousands of dollars have gone to the DSCC. In total, Weinstein has donated nearly $600,000 to Democratic campaigns and committees since the early 2000s, according to data from Political Moneyline.”
I for one want no more lectures on morality from the left. And I especially want no more of this high-brow attitude from the entertainment elites of Hollywood, and elsewhere. I’m sick of these rascals who tell us that guns are a problem, while they have armed guards, live behind walls and gates, and earn a living making action movies using guns. I want no more lectures about sexism. I don’t want to hear anymore from these so-called feminist groups who just cherry pick what they deem “sexism” which is politically motivated.
The Bible puts this in perspective, Luke 6:41-42 (NIV): “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
The Democrat Party is the party of white supremacists, racists, Nazis, and despicable morally deficient elites. Clean up your act before you even begin to lecture to us simple serfs about how we should live our lives. You disgust us and are representative of the lifestyle of Caligula…and we no longer want you exporting your lack of morality and values into our American society.
