The next time a member of Hollywood is described as brave for speaking out on important social issues, know that when true courage was needed the den of iniquity known as Hollywood was found severely wanting.
The primped, pampered and glossed mouthpieces of feminism, human rights, social equality, ‘anti-fascism’ and all the other current fads that has the Left enraptured have been deafeningly silent or barely audible on the decades-long sexual predatory behavior of entertainment big wig Harvey Weinstein.
Courage, instead, was to be found in victim Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, who wore a wire to record her second encounter with Weinstein who begged her to watch him shower and threatened her career if she did not give in.
Perpetual moralizer George Clooney, who is quick to the microphone to blast President Trump as a ‘xenophobic fascist’ while he supports his wife, Amal’s, public bashing of Trump as a misogynist, took his sweet time dragging his hypocritical self into the public to comment on Weinstein.
The husband of a human rights lawyer that has hosted a woman-empowerment conference called ‘The Power of Us: Amplify your Voice’, was rather dismissive of the suppressing of female victim complaints about Weinstein’s perversity.
Conservative Fighters quotes Clooney as excusing his actions to The Daily Beast this way:
“I’ve heard rumors, and the rumors in general started back in the nineties, and they were that certain actresses had slept with Harvey to get a role. It seemed like a way to smear the actresses and demean them by saying that they didn’t get the jobs based on their talent, so I took those rumors with a grain of salt.”
Clooney went on to prove he values his paycheck over the human rights of women when he stated, “He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on ‘From Dusk till Dawn,’ he gave me my first big break as a director with “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.’ We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior—ever.”
Yet he heard rumors and never mustered the moral courage to question Weinstein about it, not even choosing to be deceptively facetious about his inquiry?
Amal must be so proud how Clooney chose not amplify the voice of victimized women.
