So in order for it to be a crime it has to be rape squared, not just rape. That’s according to Whoopie Goldberg while discussing the case of director Roman Polanski, who has recently been arrested on a three decade old case for having unlawful sex with a minor child. Whoopi thinks it’s okay because he served 42 days but might have to serve much more so he left the country.
Of course Whoopi isn’t alone in this. Hollywierd is jumping all over this bandwagon because apparently they are completely out of touch with the public! A number of Hollywood figures have signed a petition calling for his release. They include leading Hollywood figures Martin Scorcese, Woody Allen, David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Pedro Almodovar, Tilda Swinton and Monica Bellucci. One celebrity supporter, the actress Debra Winger, said it was a “three-decades-old case that is dead but for minor technicalities. We stand by him and await his release and his next masterpiece.”
Yes, lets stand by a man who had sex with a 13 year old girl after giving her liqour and drugs. He certainly is a humanist, right!
I’m sure someone will tell me that he was in “exile” for 31 years and should not be “punished” further. Yes, exile in France! How horrible. Yes the victim has forgiven him and said he shouldn’t be punished but she doesn’t get to make that call. She can forgive him, but she can’t pardon him. This was a perverted crime and he needs to face up to it.
