Just when I thought the leftist entertainment industry couldn’t get any worse, they find new ways to nauseate the hell out of me.
Try to keep your breakfast down while reading this:
Roman Polanski has been named president of ceremonies for France’s Cesar Awards, a decision that quickly drew protests.
Upon news that the “Rosemary’s Baby” director — who fled the U.S. in 1977 to avoid sentencing after he pleaded guilty to raping a 13-year-old girl — had been given the honor, a French feminist organization quickly announced plans to protest the Cesar Awards net month.
“We are nauseated,” a statement from d’Osez le Feminisme read. “The appointment of Roman Polanski is an outrageous act to the many victims of rape and sexual assault.”
“The quality of his filmography has little do with the crime he committed, his flight and his refusal to assume his responsibilities,” the statement continued.
Roman Polanski, you’ll remember, is the scum bag who plead guilty to drugging, raping, and sodomizing a 13-year-old child back in the 70s. Naturally Polanski, upon realizing he faced some SERIOUS federal prison time, fled to Poland before he could be sentenced. The United States has attempted several times to extradite this piece of human debris so he could spend some quality time in a prison shower with Bubba and several of his buddies. Each attempt has failed, however.
Hollywood has, of course, almost universally defended Roman Polanski. Apparently when you make a few quality movies you’re able to get away with pretty much whatever you want, up to and including rape and sodomy. The Justice Department’s last big extradition push saw celebrities of all stripes coming out and defending Roman Polanski. Most infamously Whoopi Goldberg took to to her platform on The View to tell us what Polanski did wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t “rape” rape after all:
The fact that Polanski has risen to the height of prominence and power within the entertainment industry is the most sickening thing about this whole mess. Roman Polanski needs to go away for a very, very long time.
