FOR DECADES, HOLLYWOOD SAID… “SSSHHHHH”…ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S BULLSHIT:   Now…   Every Time We Fail To Do What Is Right…Our Asses Knock Once More …At The Gates Of HELL. 

Tell Me This…  HOW is it that a deviant is allowed to commit crime…after crime…after crime…OVER DECADES…where many people know about it…& he gets to take his ass home every night…& sleep in his own bed???   It’s not like we don’t have jails & prisons.  And, they house plenty of folk who have sexually assaulted women… & raped women.  THANK GOD!!!  So…  What the $#%* is going on???  You see…   There is not just SOMETHING wrong with this picture.   There is a HELL OF A LOT wrong with this picture.  O.k…

Up until recently, Harvey Weinsteinco-founder of Miramax pictures…was seen as an extremely successful movie mogul.   He was seen as ONE who could make…or…break movie careers.   Weinstein produced movies such as…The Crying GamePulp FictionThe English PatientShakespeare in LoveInglourious Basterds…The King’s Speech…The Artist…Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom…Woman in Gold…& The Hateful Eight.  Oh, you know what happened.  Starry-eyed people flocked to his doorsteps…wanting to break into the business.  If they could get a meeting with him…they thought, “Damn…I’m almost there!”  What most didn’t think was that Weinstein was going to try to break into their panties.   O.k…

Before I go any further, I want to know this…   Who in Satan’s hell told Harvey Weinstein that he was cute & help create this EVIL MONSTER???  Who told this bastard that HE was the shit???  Somebody had to.  You see…   If this ^%$#* had been “checked” a long time ago, maybe the groping, raping, fellatio, false imprisonment shit could have been prevented…to some degree.  O.k…

On October 5, 2017, The New York Times printed an article titled… Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades.   The article states… “An investigation by The New York Times found previously undisclosed allegations against Mr. Weinstein stretching over nearly three decades, documented through interviews with current and former employees and film industry workers, as well as legal records, emails and internal documents from the businesses he has run, Miramax and the Weinstein Company.

On October 10, 2017, The New Yorker, published Ronan Farrow’s investigative story on Harvey Weinstein titled…From Aggressive Overtures To Sexual Assault Harvey Weinsteins Accusers Tell Their Stories.   And, stories they told.  SORDID!…STORIES…   Ones that speak of a man who assaulted them by groping their breasts.  Ones that speak of a man who… “had raped them, forcibly performing or receiving oral sex or forcing vaginal sex.”  O.K…

These published stories…caused a firestorm.   The courage of these women…seems to have encouraged MORE & MORE…to come forward.   As I am writing this post…I see that CNN and The New York Times report…that Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o speaks out about Harvey Weinstein’s attempts to engage her sexually.  She told The New York Times… “Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage.  I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation.”  So…   She ended up giving a man…who she didn’t really know…a massage.  Why??? Not, because she wanted to.  Not, because this was her job.  But…SOLELY because it was Harvey Weinstein.   You tell me…  How many women do you know who go around giving STRANGE ASS MEN…massages…just because???  MY GOD!!!  If this man spent as much time doing God’s work, that he spent chasing the devil…maybe hunger would have ended in the world…by now.  DAMN!!!  So…

What do we have here???…  PREDATOR??? DEVIL???  RAPIST??? I tell you what…  In no uncertain terms, God is telling me that these women are speaking the whole truth & nothing BUT…the truth.  Sooooo…   We have a devil walking this earth…FREE tonight…to engage in any deviant behavior he wants to.   FREE tonight…to molest, rape, abuse & attack.   How is this shit allowed to happen???  How is Harvey Weinstein allowed to sleep peacefully in his own bed…while women are kept awake by nightmares about this devil???  In his piece, Ronan Farrow reports on Lucio Stoller’s (now Lucio Evans) reaction to seeing Weinstein…years after…her prior forced sexual encounters with him.  She says… “I remember getting chills down my spine just looking at him. I was so horrified. I have nightmares about him to this day.”  So…

Why did the people who knew about Weinstein’s behavior keep quiet???  Remember, this shit went on for three ‘friggin’ decades. Is it because he is a RICH…POWERFUL…WHITE MALE???  Is it because our society devalues the worthiness of women???  Is it because the power brokers in businesses throughout this country are predominantly…males???  Is it because too many people sit by silently & allow predators to go “unchecked”…for their own “selfish” reasons???  I would dare to say…IT’S ALL THE ABOVE!

On October 17, 2017, Cosmopolitan reports Skeet Ulrich’s (actor who worked on Scream with Weinstein) comments about the allegations against Weinstein… “I knew. Most people knew. …there is nothing you can do. I mean, What am I gonna do? I can’t step up, certainly then, on allegations. Honestly, and I think it’s what most people faced: How do you cut your livelihood from a very powerful corporation on something that you don’t know what the facts are?”  O.k…  For him, it was a money thing.   He says it.   He didn’t want to lose his livelihood.  So, in exchange for keeping quiet…he gets to keep his paycheck.  It’s not that there was “NOTHING” that he could have done.  That’s bullshit.  It’s…that he chose not to do anything.  Nothing more…  Nothing less…  O.k…

On October 14, 2017, The Daily Beast reports… “As actress Emma de Caunes told The New Yorker, “I know that everybody—I mean everybody—in Hollywood knows that it’s happening… He’s not even really hiding. I mean, the way he does it, so many people are involved and see what’s happening. But everyone’s too scared to say anything.”   At least she was honest.   She says… “Everyone’s too scared…”   So, here again, it’s a money thing.  It’s an image thing.  People in the movie/tv industry did not want to be ostracized by Harvey Weinstein.  Why???  They would very likely have been black-balled.  You know Weinstein would have called this one…& that one…bad mouthing these folks so any movie/tv career…would likely be cut-off. Meaning???  No more jobs = no more money…in that business.   Now…

ANYBODY…that knew anything…about Weinstein’s actions…at any time he was doing this…and did not say something…or…do something…was wrong in failing to do something.  YES!  This includes the people he victimized.  Now, don’t misunderstand.  I have been on the receiving end of this type of sexual harassment shit & I too…kept my mouth shut when I should have spoken up.   So, I understand many of the emotions, reasons that we use to make excuses for not doing something.  Believe me, I get all of that.  HOWEVER…  My reasons… My excuses…don’t change the fact that I should have said something.  I should have done something.     The point is this…   We’ve got to do MUCH BETTER at protecting one another!  Saying something & doing something could help prevent the same shit from happening to somebody else.  Human beings have a duty, set by God, to help one another…to protect one another.

On October 19, 2017, The New York Times, reports that Hollywood Director, Quentin Tarantino, states… “I knew enough to do more than I did,” he said, citing several episodes involving prominent actresses. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”  O.k…

God expects us to do the right thing…ALL THE TIME.  The fact that we fail, so many times, to meet His expectation…doesn’t change His expectation.  NOT AT ALL!   He becomes very angry when we are disobedient & fail to do the right thing.  Our excuses & reasons…mean nothing to him.   You see…  He knows that our failings…our disobedience can easily operate to put others…in danger.  So…  He doesn’t give a damn about us not getting a promotion…because we speak out against the “Harvey Weinsteins” in the world.  He doesn’t give a damn about us being black-balled in any industry for speaking the truth.   God cares about this…   He cares about us obeying His call for us to do the right thing…all the time…regardless of the consequences.  Why??? Because failing to do so…puts us in the same predicament as the devil.  The predicament of going head first…straight into Hell.  Now…

The right thing to do regarding Harvey Weinsten was to report his devilish ass to the police…every time he did what he did.  Why???  A sexual predator acts like a wild uncontrolled dangerous animal…who needs to be caged up…like a wild uncontrolled dangerous animal.   Lupita Nyong’o summed it up by saying… “I had shelved my experience with Harvey far in the recesses of my mind, joining in the conspiracy of silence that has allowed this predator to prowl for so many years.”

Children of God…our hearts must feel this way about one another:                                          “You are my brother…you are my sister…& I must love you enough all the time…to protect you.  And, this is regardless of the consequences.”
