NORTH CAROLINA — While Hollywood actors and directors ritualistically dressed in all black at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night in order to show their alliance and solidarity for the #MeTooMovement, which was sparked by the alleged sexual harassment, groping, and rape charges against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who allegedly hired an Ex-Mossad intelligence agency for $1.3 million to allegedly collect information, psychological profiles, and sexual histories of over 90 actors, producers, and publicist he feared might expose his sexual deviance in the dark underworld of Hollywood Casting Couches, the question remains, will this public protest on the Red carpet have an impact on an industry that makes the bulk of its billions on the sexual exploitation and sexual objectification of the female body, whether in the porn industry, sex tapes or from the body modification of plastic surgeons, who carve up bodies for their personal financial gain by injecting and implanting foreign substances in the plastic faces, ill-shaped noses, busting breast, and bubbling buttocks of its clientele?
With Weinstein becoming the scapegoat to a larger problem affecting the elite members of the Homosexual/Jewish influenced Hollywood Mafia, many people believe that the “newly” fake Feminist fires, which are spreading and flaring up like the California forest fires that burnt in San Diego County, are directly linked to Hillary Clinton’s failure to become the First Female President after her historic election defeat to an alleged male chauvinist pig named Donald Trump, who famously said, “I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look…You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women— I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the p*$#y. You can do anything.
While not pretending to be a Puritan, yet practicing a form of decency and decorum, many of us, can’t be surprised by the comments of our ‘newly” elected president, which probably looks similar to a scene from the movie Wolf of Wall Street. Especially, those, who were born during the Sexual Revolution, where anything goes, which has been re-birthed in the current strip club and online porn culture.
Besides, who cares if a few old powerful, rich dirt-bags got exposed last year for their bad behavior as a result of the #MeTooMovement. HELL, Trump is president, The Cosby Show still comes on Bounce TV, Kobe Bryant got two of his jerseys retired, and Bill Clinton is still married to Hillary and view as an honorable man in the Democratic Party.
And even though, the “New Black Mother of White Feminism,” Oprah Winfrey gave a powerful and inspirational speech after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award, where she said..”What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have and I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year, we became the story. But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry, it’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics or workplace.”
“So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed, bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia and engineering and medicine and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business. There are athletes in the Olympics and soldiers in the military.”
Despite Oprah’s powerful words, which ended in a teary-eyed standing ovation, things probably won’t change in Hollywood.
Why? Because, according to Newsweek, it was just five years ago, that actress Meryl Streep accepted the award for best actress in a motion picture drama at the 2012 Golden Globe awards, where she thanked God for giving her the opportunity to star as Margaret Thatcher in 2011’s The Iron Lady. But the God she was referring to was not in heaven-It was Harvey Weinstein, who despite all the controversy, still has NOT been arrested or been put on trial for his alleged crimes.
So, in a cheap form of retaliation, this year Donald Trump Jr. tweeted “sickening hypocrisy” concerning Streep’s last year’s attacked on his father when she said, “When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose”
“Not only did Meryl Streep call Harvey a god but she gave a standing ovation to child rapist Roman Polanski at the Oscars… “She tries to be a moral compass [sic] for others… No thanks.” tweeted Don Jr.
As you can see, we have a LONG WAY TO GO. BUT, A SHORT TIME TO GET THERE. Plus, there will be no overnight success stories in Hollywood. Because it was built upon a culture of rape and a whole lot of DRAMA.
