Obligatory Polanski Thread


Ms. Dorothy Snarker forwarded to me this post authored by filmmaker Allison Anders, "Art Is Not Enough." Not everyone in Hollywood shares the view that rapists should be given a get-out-of-jail-free card by virtue of their talent.

The Feminist Majority Foundation puts out a statement noting that the wildly misguided Peg Yorkin does not speak for them.

LeMew takes on another round of unmitigated horseshit care of Anne Applebaum.

[STRONG TRIGGER WARNING] And via Chris comes a quote from an old interview that ought to send a shiver down the spine of every single person who supports Polanski, as it reveals the depth of his contempt for the idea that he ever did anything wrong, not to mention the depth of his contempt for girls and women (emphasis original):
"If I had killed somebody, it wouldn't have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But...fucking, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to fuck young girls. Juries want to fuck young girls. Everyone wants to fuck young girls!"
Shame on anyone who reads that and still supports him.
