    Do you or any of the other people dragging 'Jew' into this story, have anything to say about Steven Spielberg, for example? Is he only a king among directors because he's Jewish? Or is he just an immensely talented and hardworking artist his whole life, who happens to be Jewish? Are all of the stories about his generosity & being a nice guy one big bullshit coverup, or is he an example of a decent guy who happens to be Jewish?

    i have no idea, sure the guy is super talented but it doesnt hurt if you happen to know people within your "social circle" to put it in a way, that gives you access to participate in projects and be on the scene easier

    He got off on trying to take advantage of hot women. Abuse of power, power can corrupt, a lot of rich people get bored with normal love and sex, they grow bored and start getting into freak shit or politics to try and play games.

    He got off on being able to get away with it and not getting caught.

    You bring up one name in defense of the jewish? Jews have been kicked out of every country they've ever lived besides the United states. There are talented people of every race btw. None of them have the backing like the jewish though.

    Not to come off as a nazi but the Jewish have made enemies for at least one hundred years with the underhanded ways they conduct themselves. Hitler went after them when they decided to boycott German made goods and the stores that sold them.

    I think its a big leap to say they let him do it, knowing full well what was going on. At the end of the day, this is still a guy that people were considering a friend if not family. It's easy to justify things in your mind and overlook certain things. OJs best friend was on his legal team and still took forever to start thinking "Shit....you know...just maybe....".


    Affleck is being taken to task lately and I honestly dont think hes done anything too bad. What he was saying about Weinstein is from someone who considered him extended family and someone he owed his career to. Still, he was pretty much burning his bridge with him. The fact that 15 years ago he grabbed someone s ass isnt comparable to what Weinstein is accused of.

    Of those listed, definitely CNN. As much as you want to believe it's fake news, it is not. They actually print retractions when they get things wrong. That's because they actually have a reputation to uphold. Breitbart does not do either.

    I'm not saying Breitbart's coverage of the Weinstein thing is inaccurate. But their coverage of political matters definitely has been and they have done nothing to correct it.

    The best thing to do is what I do. Read them all.

    Don't worry, I'm not one of these modern snowflakes who has to label every single person who says something that might be offensive, as a 'nazi'.

    You're just a run-of-the-mill bigot.

    There is a recording of him trying to pressure a model. It was creepy to say the least.

    It's getting a little out of hand.

    James Vanderbeek is claiming some "old, powerful men" groped him when he was younger. People are automatically believing him. Not saying he's lying, but if that's all it takes to get people riled up, this could get ugly, fast, and the overreach of the condemnation of Hollywood could backfire. All it would take is a few to get exposed as liars out for some publicity, and the credibility of the whole thing gets cheapened, and these powerful sex monsters can start threatening people with the old "Nobody will ever believe you" line.

    This scandal needs to be handled carefully, and people best not blow their wads.

    Hitler went after them before even getting into power.
    Hitler already in his book 1925ish established the race hierarchy .
    So boycotting German made goods = execution and or kz -camp?

    Acting on actual sexual harassment is now considered to be SJW thing?
    <LikeReally5>

    WTF. This isn't some esoteric case of someone using wrong pronouns / not accepting some furry is a reborn dragon or shit like that. This case is like a textbook definition of harassment.
