The Hollywood casting couch is news to me.

For some reason people are acting astonished that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been hitting on young women who want to get into the movies. Do people not know this has been the norm for decades or is it because Harvey Weinstein is Jewish?

No, it's because, over the years, women were unlikely to be listened to, had no organizations with strength to back them, judges almost always sided with the (powerful) man who, many times, I'm sure, would make it "worth his while" to put the blame on this woman who "led him on". Nothing to do with "Jewish". Today women are finding people who will listen to THEM as many of THEM have money also.

We don't really need any more "racist" stimulation. We need REAL justice.

Classic Libtard speech and racist stimulation has nothing to do with a serial abuser of woman that Harvey is.

Or it's because Hollywood likes to preach to us about ethics like priests and has now gotten caught again with its hand in the little boy cookie pants.

As I understand it, Harvey Weinstein was attracted to young beautiful women.

As i understand it the Liberals are throwing Harvey under the bus for not following the Libtard narrative on women.

The existence of the predatory practice does not surprise me at all. What DOES surprise me is that he survived to keep doing it decade after decade despite all the big names who were his victims. There are people brought down for sexual harrassment or rape by high school dropout nobodies, and then here's this guy essentially painting his Johnson gold like an Oscar and handing it out as such to the Hollywood elite. And I also don't buy that his wife had no idea it was this bad.

His actions have nothing to do with his religion, it has to do with the fact that he acted like a predator to those women. It's only recently that women have begun to feel like they would be listened to and even then that's iffy. There are actually more than a few stories out there now about men in positions of authority preying on women. Anthony Weiner, Andy Signore, Weinstein.....heck even our Commander and Chief can talk about grabbing women by the you know...and kissing them even if they don't want it and he's STILL given the position as President.....sorry, I digress...

Men in power and abusing that power is very cliche.

Indeed, you are right about President Donald Trump. He has boasted about hitting on women and still has a fan base and the Republican party who support him.

Bill Clinton does come to mind as a serial abuser of woman and the Democrats rallied around him and supported his vial actions.

Only one president that stained a blue dress who that was escapes me now.

For as long as I can remember, the casting couch has been part of breaking into Hollywood and getting offered parts in movies. I am baffled that everyone in the news media seems to find this headline news. Hollywood producers have been doing this for decades. Maybe it is because he is one of the biggest producers in Hollywood or maybe antisemites are blowing it out of proportion.

Yes, yes. And that's why leftists used violence to try and shut down Ben Shapiro at Berkley. Because he was a Jew...obviously. That little beanie he wears gets the left in a pirahna frenzy every time...

So if your theory is that leftists "obviously" hate Jews then isn't that theory, when one considers the popularity of Bernie Sanders, "obviously" completely false?

It's obviously okay to do it then. I mean everyone knows the cliche about Cathlic priests and little boys, so we should obviously not be outraged when Father O'rien gets caught boom bada binging an 8 year old choir boy...
