Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, a T.V. writer, author and filmmaker wrote a story on Hollywood Reporter about the sexual harassment in Hollywood. In her story: “Lessons from Witnessing Four Decades of Harassment in Hollywood”, Linda details stories she’s heard from other women in Hollywood about the sexual harassment history of Hollywood, as well as recounting some of her own. And boy, does she tear into Hollywood.
She begins: “I always knew I wanted to be a writer… my first three mentors were Hollywood giants Norman Lear, James L. Brooks and Larry Gelbart… It wasn’t until a few years later that I began to experience sexual harassment – the producer’s hand rubbing my back inside my blouse during meetings; the studio exec who, on my first day, encouraged me to wear a bikini to work… I didn’t know then that this is a man’s town, based mostly on male friendships. Forget those iconic letters that make up the Hollywood sign. It would be much more fitting if there was a giant penis casting a shadow over all the women who tirelessly endeavor to rise above this unpoliced playground for men.”
Now, this article is insanely long, so I will forgo a good chunk of it. What’s important to know is that Linda herself has been victim to sexual harassment at the hands of Hollywood people. She also tells the stories of other women who have been victims of sexual harassment. “I remember the revered star of a classic TV crime drama telling me a story about the president of her network. During her show’s final season, this actress was invited to his executive dining room for lunch. When she began to pitch her next series, he told her she was now way too old for his network. She started to cry and got up to go. He stood up, too, took her by the shoulders and said, ‘I’m sorry. I can’t let you leave like this’. She softened, almost forgiving him. Then he shoved his tongue down her throat.”
And that’s just one horrifying story of sexual harassment (or abuse, given the ending). She then tells the story of the people in a sitcom demanding that the “youngest, best-looking women show up for work at the crack of dawn wearing tight, revealing shorts.” And that once they discovered that one of the young women was utterly afraid of guns, they “forced her to purchase one and shoot a raccoon that lived on the stage.” And that when Linda called ABC to file a complaint, she discovered that while the producer had lost his job, the star of the show was left “unscathed”.
She then goes on to talk about gender inequality and ageism in the entertainment business. That by the time a male Hollywood star retires, roughly 3 generations of female actresses would have played his wife. (It’s important to note she uses Michael Douglas (aged 74) as an example of a male Hollywood star and Blythe Danner, who’s 74, Gwyneth Paltrow, who’s 45, and Apple Martin, who’s… wait for it… 13, oh, and Paltrow’s daughter.)
She also mentions a point I also agree with. “The over-sexualization, humiliation and brutalization of women on television and in movies remains rampant.” I certainly agree that women have been disgustingly over-sexualized in nearly every adult movie, humiliating them and making them look as though they are nothing more than pieces of meat to use for sex.
She then goes on to mention that she’d think that with all the “rampant misogyny”, Hollywood would “take on the issue of social justice for women – the same way it has embraced the cause of the African-American, Jewish (yeah, ok), and LGBTQ communities. But so far... just the sad sound of crickets.”
Sadly, since it’s basically a rule that Leftists must rip on Trump if they’re talking about politics, she also goes out of her way to call HIM a sexual predator. When she attacks the excuses people (usually Leftists) give for people like Harvey Weinstein, such as “they’re really not bad people, just ill”, she says the following: “Truthfully, I would’ve preferred the simple and more honest explanation given by our president, Donald J. Trump. ‘Grab ‘em by the p***y… When you’re a star, you can do anything.’ Thank you, Donald. I believe you’re the only sexual predator, to date, who’s told the truth.”
Yep, she just couldn’t resist trying to attack an innocent man when talking about the very guilty people of Hollywood. She’s a Leftist, after all.
And perhaps the best part of the story is when she talks about a personal friend of hers: “… I will be the first to admit that clearly delineated moral choices can still be painfully complex where friendship is involved. One of the best friends I will ever have and a man I love dearly, former President Bill Clinton, has certainly taxed my feminist conscience, but always without diminishing my affection. I even helped write his apology to the nation for his own sexual misconduct… and believe to this day it was based on something that was none of our business.”
I honestly think that, with those lines alone, she killed the point of her own story. How can you claim to be against sexual harassment when you still think highly of an ADMITTED sexual predator? And how can she say she believes it was based on something that was none of their business while at the same time saying that women should speak out against those who harass them? Isn’t it Weinstein’s business who he rapes, by that logic?
She does say that some may find it hypocritical (because it is), but that that doesn’t matter because she warned people against “allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers.” THAT is the excuse she gives. She’s not even denying that she’s being hypocritical, she just switches back to talking about how she tried to warn people about Weinstein.
Aside from the obvious hypocrisy of her article, there is one thing she forgot to mention: Hollywood is entirely LEFTIST! She knows very well that Hollywood is Leftist, and yet, she fails to see wherein the problem lies. It’s not the fact that Hollywood is owned by men. It’s the fact that Hollywood is owned by LEFTISTS! Leftists who, for THIRTY YEARS, knew about Weinstein’s behavior. And that includes Leftist women. Leftists who have no moral conscience, only a script for what to say when politics is involved. They know they have to side with political correctness, social justice, and the Left.
But by doing that, they ignore morality. I’ve said before, the Left is without morals. You can’t honestly expect Leftist men to be morally sound about anything. Weinstein isn’t the first, nor will he be the last, Leftist in Hollywood to rape and sexually assault and harass women. And Linda shouldn’t be one more of the people within Hollywood who fails to realize where the problem stems. It’s not an issue of gender, it’s an issue of MORALITY!
There’s a reason Lust is one of the 7 Deadly Sins. It’s one of the most disgusting things for God to witness in the world He’s created. And Hollywood is chockfull of it. From the over-sexualization of women (and men) that even LINDA points out, to all the corruption and sinfulness of studio execs and stars, to the Harvey Weinsteins of the industry, Hollywood is inundated in lust. But that problem doesn’t come from men. That problem comes from the HEART of those men.
Hollywood is a great example of what happens when God is not allowed in your city. I say great as opposed to “perfect” because it’s not the perfect example. Nazi Germany would be the perfect example. Soviet Russia would be the perfect example. Hollywood is not quite at those levels because, as rotten as California’s local politicians are, they don’t rule the country. If left on their own, they would descend into Communism. Its celebrities would want to flee the country and demand that the new country be like California.
But that’s beside the point. The point is that Hollywood is a terrible place for women not because of gender inequality, but because of the sinful hearts of those with power. Hollywood is horrible because it’s Leftist. And Hollywood is Leftist because it’s horrible.
“In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin.”
Free speech is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? We are all free to speak our minds and have others disagree and speak their own minds. Likewise, we are free to say stupid things and have people make fun of us for it. That last part couldn’t be more true for former First Lady and 2016 Democrat Party nominee Hillary Clinton.
Over the past couple of weeks, the biggest story on the news has been the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal that is plaguing the hearts and minds of every Leftist in America. As a part of their defense mechanisms, the Left is trying to make this story about Trump, going back to a tactic that didn’t work near the end of the 2016 Presidential campaign, and that is to call him a sexual assaulter.
Of course, we know that’s not true, but how often do facts actually matter to the Left? In an interview with Andrew Marr of BBC One, Hillary feinted shock and disgust at one of her Party’s best friends. “I was shocked and appalled because I’ve known him through politics, as many Democrats have, he’s been a supporter.”, Clinton said in the interview.
Eventually, she tried to turn this onto Trump, calling him a sexual assaulter. “But it’s important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories… After all, we have someone admitting to be a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.”, Clinton said.
Really now? An admitted sexual assaulter? He hasn’t admitted to anything BECAUSE HE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING! The most he’s ever done is TALKED about it the way guys talk in a locker room, as I’m sure you may remember from the Access Hollywood tapes. Beyond that, it’s only been Democrat-payed women coming forward three weeks before the election claiming that Trump did stuff to them, even though nothing ever happened.
So she’s lying about Trump admitting it, because HE NEVER DID ANYTHING TO ADMIT TO!
Now, Andrew Marr, to his credit, brought up the fact that it takes courage for women to come forward and told Hillary that, in her book, she dismissed the three women that came forward to accuse her husband of what they did to them, and asked if it was the right thing to do. And Hillary’s response? “Well, yes, because that had all been litigated. That was the subject of a huge investigation… that was clearly in the past.”
Really? It’s in the past? So if Trump talking about it in the past matters, why doesn’t it matter if her husband ACTUALLY SEXUALLY ASSAULTED WOMEN?! That’s simply more Leftist hypocrisy right there.
But let’s ignore the hypocrisy right now. So, she says that it’s ok because it was in the past? Women that have been raped should get over it then? “Well, it was clearly in the past” is that what she’ll say to someone that was raped, say, 10 years ago? That since it was in the past, that she should get over it?
You know what else is in the past? 9/11. Should we get over that too? Should we forgive the evil terrorists that attacked us because it was 16 years ago? Should Jewish people get over the Holocaust and forgive Hitler, the leader of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party, for killing 6 million Jews? Should gay people forgive the ISIS terrorist that shot up a night club in Orlando because that was over a year ago, therefore in the past?
Saying “it’s in the past” is an insanely pathetic, poor, and frankly offensive excuse, given the subject matter. She’s basically telling the women her husband has assaulted (or any woman that’s ever been assaulted) to just get over it. Some champion of women she is. She defends and stays married to her sexual assaulter of a husband, she’s good friends with a pathetic and disgusting Hollywood mogul and she tries to spin the focus on someone who is the furthest thing from a disgusting creep as you can find in the recent years in the White House.
Sometimes, it’s just easy to bring up the point that Leftism and liberalism are among the worst things for women in the world. The fact that Hillary attacked the women that were brave enough to stand up to the most powerful man in the country at the time, the fact that she’s essentially defending Weinstein now, and the fact that she’s trying to accuse Trump of doing things he never did tells you just how little she thinks of women. And she expected them to vote for her? Don’t make me laugh!
Like I said earlier, I love freedom of speech. It allows ignorant Leftists to spout out ridiculous things that can so easily be refuted and/or made fun of. While sexual assault is no laughing matter, her pitiful attempts at defending her husband and pinning this on Trump is hilarious.
It’s clear to me that Hillary Clinton is one of the biggest enemies for women everywhere. Thankfully, she’s now largely irrelevant within her own sexual-assault-defending Party.

“In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.”
You really have to laugh at these pitiful attempts by the Left to smear Trump at every chance they get. Journalist Tina Brown wrote an article on the New York Times titled: “What Harvey and Trump have in common.”
The Left never misses an opportunity to attack Trump. In the story, she writes: “What I learned about Harvey in the two years of proximity with him at Talk (a former magazine) was that nothing about his outward persona… was the truth. He is very Trumpian in that regard.”
“He comes off as a big, blustery, rough diamond kind of a guy… The real Harvey is fearful, paranoid, and hates being touched (at any rate, when fully dressed)”. Right, here’s the thing: Trump doesn’t hide behind a layer of confidence. He doesn’t have an outward personality that is different from his inward one. He’s 100% Trump all the time. Oh, and let’s not forget: HE’S NOT A SEXUAL PREDATOR!
Regardless, the article continues: “It takes one brave whistleblower and then two to get the ball rolling and give the shattered sharers of the same story permission to speak out to The New York Times. Kudos to Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, and now all the many new voices captured by Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker.”
So that last part is nice, and gives credit to the whistleblowers who were brave enough to call out the disgusting pile of garbage. But then, she reminds everyone that she’s an ignorant Leftist and ends her article with this: “Harvey is an intimidating and ferocious man. Crossing him, even now, is scary. But it’s a different era now. Cosby. Ailes. O’Reilly. Weinstein. It’s over, except for one – the serial sexual harasser in the White House.”
Yep, she just has to remind everyone what the topic is about. It’s not about the horrible things Harvey has done. It’s not about the terrible Hollywood Leftist culture that allowed him to be a menace to women for THIRTY YEARS. No, she just has to remind people that the Left thinks Trump is a sexual harasser as well. Even though it’s absolute b.s., they still run with it.
Even though they began to run that story of “sexual harassment” THREE WEEKS before the election just to smear Trump, they still think it’s real, even though there’s no evidence of it. Like Russia, they choose to go with the narrative over facts. If the story is against Trump, it doesn’t matter what the facts are. They will live and act as though it’s the truth.
But I think it’s interesting who she lists as sexual harassers here. “Cosby, Ailes, O’Reilly (which is just as b.s. as the Trump one), and Weinstein.” Notice anyone missing? His first name is the same as Cosby’s and he used to be POTUS. 5 seconds on the clock! Got it? “Who is Bill Clinton?” That’s correct!
Interesting how she conveniently forgot to mention the most sexually disturbed President this country’s ever had. Ah, but I don’t blame her for not mentioning him. NO ONE ON THE LEFT WANTS TO REMEMBER!
We all know what Bill did. Hillary knows what Bill did. Tina knows what Bill did. Monica knows what Bill did TO HER. Barack knows what Bill did. Bill knows what Bill did. And God knows what Bill did. And the Left wants to pretend nothing happened. So, when the topic of sexual harassers comes up, they conveniently forget to mention him and make sure to blame Trump for things he didn’t do.
We’ve lately been on the topic of why women don’t like the Left. Part of the reason is because the Left enables sexual harassers and lets them do what they want, for as long as they’re not caught. And once they’re caught, they act with insincere shock and disgust, and make sure to redirect the topic of conversation to a prominent Republican or conservative figure.
And this is the ENTIRE Left. The politicians, the journalists of the MSM, and the celebrities of Hollywood. I mean, think about it. This has been a well-kept secret in Hollywood for THIRTY YEARS! There’s been mentions of it in the past, but it never got to this point. The stories would always be killed. They would be killed because they didn’t want to harm a prominent member of the Democrat Party and major donor.
Money and their agenda supersedes morality for the Left. In fact, THE LEFT DOESN’T HAVE ANY MORALS! If they did, they wouldn’t condone this type of behavior and keep it secret. They wouldn’t advocate for people to change their genders. They wouldn’t encourage a mental disease. They wouldn’t allow for a hateful cult of death to be allowed to establish itself outside of the Middle East. They wouldn’t advocate for the murder of children and pass it off as “women’s healthcare”.
The Left is the one who allows for sexual harassment to occur RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM! They are not in women’s side, THEY ARE AGAINST THEM! And they dare call Trump a harasser?
There’s a verse in the Bible that goes like this: Matthew 7:3: “Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?” It speaks of a sinner’s hypocrisy, calling another person a sinner, when they themselves are sinners. But this quote only somewhat makes sense for this subject.
You see, TRUMP IS NOT A SEXUAL HARASSER! So there’s no “sexual predation speck of dust” in his eye. But there is a MASSIVE “sexual predation speck of dust” in Bill Clinton’s eye. In Harvey’s eye and many, MANY Leftists’ eyes. They call Trump a sexual harasser when they themselves harbor and protect sexual harassers for as long as they don’t get caught.
How many more Harvey Weinsteins are there in Hollywood at the moment? How many women are in peril by simply working with a powerful studio executive? How many of these predators are being protected by their Hollywood buddies? How dangerous is Hollywood for women?

We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
