It is truly sickening how liberals in Hollywood worked with film producer Harvey Weinstein for so long, despite knowing about all the sexual assaults he committed. It is even worse that they are trying to deflect blame for it. In a ridiculous statement, Bowling for Columbine director Michael Moore said that someone else other than Harvey is actually to blame for Harvey’s sexual assaults.
Claimed Michael, “Anyone with a flicker of a conscience or a modicum of decency stands, as I do, with the women who’ve summoned the courage to tell the truth about Harvey Weinstein. But well-meaning platitudes of support for the abused are simply not enough.”
He then said bizarrely, implicating himself, “Why do we live in a society where men do not intervene when they witness the mistreatment of women?” He then claimed, “Harvey Weinstein knew better than to behave inappropriately toward women in my presence. I’m guessing successful sociopaths like him who get away with it for years are very, very careful not to let the kind of men who would stop them dead cold ever get a glimpse of who they really are.”
Beyond just blaming other men for what Harvey did, Moore went on to blame the entire “white male hierarchy.” Said Michael, “The New York Times investigation into the repugnant and abhorrent behavior of Harvey Weinstein (and the Weinstein Company) is a profound cultural/social/political moment that I believe could actually ignite a historic change in our society.” He stated, “What if we seized this moment and bring down, once and for all, the white male hierarchy which has ruled our way of life in America since the first boatload of religious zealots arrived on Plymouth Rock?”
He then nonsensically blamed Harvey’s alleged rapes on our country’s economic system, saying, “But I want to point out that there is also a fundamental fix that MUST occur in the long run if there is ever to be any real change. We must reform our broken economic system and transform it into one that is equitable and democratic, one where the gap between rich and poor is ELIMINATED so that no longer do a few wealthy men hold the power.” Has liberal extremist Moore lost it completely?
