It’s an understatement to say that most Hollywood celebrities are hardcore leftists. It’s a fact of life that if you want any chance of finding work in the industry, you’ve got to toe the liberal line. While the results of this policy are bad enough, as America has to constantly suffer left-wing ideology being shoved down our throats, what makes it worse is the self-righteousness celebrities display.
They act holier-than-thou, preaching about how us plebeians in fly-over country are just ignorant rubes that need to live our lives as they say. But in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, this already thin veneer of moral virtue they wear has been ripped to shreds, as it’s exposed the disgusting hypocrisy the Left engages in when it comes protecting women.
As reported at the Daily Mail, two of Hollywoods most vocal left-wing activists, George Clooney and Matt Damon, have admitted that they were aware of Weinstein’s reprehensible treatment and abuse of women–but claim they didn’t know how bad it was.
While doing a joint interview with Good Morning American, Clooney and Damon said they were aware that their former boss and friend was a ‘bully’ and ‘womanizer’ who bragged of bedding actresses. However, they claim they didn’t know he did anything criminal, like rape and sexual harassment. Yeah right, everyone in Hollywood knew.
While they exonerated themselves of knowledge concerning Weinstein’s crimes, Damon did admit he knew of at least one such incident concerning Gwyneth Paltrow, who was sexually harassed back in 1996.
“I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben [Affleck] because he was with her after Brad [Pitt] and so I knew that story,” said Damon. “But I was working with Gwyneth and with Harvey on [the 1999 film “The Talented Mr.] Ripley.”
He then added: “I never talked to Gwyneth about it but Ben told me that whatever or agreement they had come to there was an understanding … and he treated her incredibly respectfully. Always.”
Damon is sure to suffer some serious backlash in light of this startling admission, especially since it’s taken him so long to come out and speak about the Weinstein issue. Being such a vocal leftists himself, and supposed ardent support of protecting women, it’s very strange it’s taken so long for him to condemn the disgraced studio head.
But when the guy helped turn you into a multi-millionaire, and you know that even if you condemn him you’ll be asked why you didn’t do anything to stop him, I guess that puts one in a tight spot.
As usual, it’s do as I say, not as I do for celebrities. They knowingly let a sexual predator abuse countless women over the years while railing against Trump over things like “locker room” talk. That’s how depraved and hypocritical these leftists are. No matter how fiercely they deny they knew how bad it was, they don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt. Because even if they didn’t know Weinstein’s actions were on the criminal level, the fact he was such a known cheater and scumbag should have set off the alarm bells long ago.
