I spoke about this last night on the weekly email to subscribers, but I just cannot stop thinking about it.
I have been reading lots of articles on the scandal, and after coming across this particularly odious one by the white supremacist magazine the Tablet, it has become obvious to me where this scandal comes from.
Those who are attacking Mr. Weinstein are merely repeating that same, toxic trope that has been flung for decades, that suggests that Jewish men in Hollywood are sexual predators and pedophiles.
This very thing was famously suggested by noted white supremacist Mario Puzo in his book The Godfather, and in the film of the same name.
In The Godfather, Corleone family consigliere Tom Hagen travels to Hollywood to help out family friend Johnny Fontaine, who is being blackballed by a Jewish film producer. The producer- Hagen finds out- is exploiting young blonde pre-teens and raping them- and as a result Hagen puts a horse’s head in the producer’s bed.
This stereotype was further abetted in the 1970’s in the false accusations against Roman Polanski. Polanski was demonized by the conservative establishment for being an icon of the Counterculture, and bringing an open-minded, tolerant sexual outlook to the square, conformist, reactionary American bourgeoisie.
Conservatives accused Polanski of drugging, raping, and sodomizing a young 13 year old girl, and brainwashed the nation into believing the story until the point where Polanski himself falsely admitted to the action, then fled to Europe where people are more progressive and accepting.
From that point on such vile allegations only festered further as a result of the Woody Allen scandals, where his adopted children accused him of molestation. These allegations were never proven of course, and the Farrow children who made them up have now been exposed as far-right conservatives who can’t be believed.
This brings us to Weinstein, and the spurious allegations at hand.
I ask you though, if Weinstein really was engaging in such behaviors, would men of such boundless integrity as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck really support him? Mr. Damon and Mr. Affleck have done more for our planet than nearly any men alive, saving us from climate change and preventing the genocide of polar bears by the Bush administration’s oil cronies. And even if one doesn’t believe them, who could imagine Meryl Streep working so closely with Mr. Feinstein if such behaviors were really occurring? Or Michael Moore?
The allegations against Mr. Weinstein are nothing more than the anti-semetic memology of Steve Bannon and his Alt Right pals at Breitbart.
Most troubling though, is the way that the story has jumped forth from such vile corners of the internet to spread far and wide, to the point where even contract photographers have become part of the conspiracy.
I ask you, is the following image not IDENTICAL to WWII-era anti-semitic propaganda posters?
This brings us to the Tablet, the aforementioned white supremacist magazine, and their article titled “The specifically Jewish perviness of Harvey Weinstein”.
As we now are hearing (whether we want to or not), he allegedly made a woman watch as he masturbated into a potted plant. And if you want to understand this bizarre behavior, don’t look to Roger Ailes, or David Vitter, or Paul Crouch—look to Philip Roth.
Better than perhaps any other author, Roth captured the particular anxiety of the Jewish American man in the twentieth century, finally coming into power but, having not grown up with it, unsure of what he’s supposed to do now. All those years craving unattainable Gentiles, but never before the means to entice them. The result is Alexander Portnoy of Portnoy’s Complaint, a grown man whose emotional and sexual life is still all one big performance piece, just as it had been when he was a teenager and pleasured himself with a piece of liver.
As a boy, Portnoy fantasized about attaining a mythical shiksa goddess whom he nicknamed Thereal McCoy (get it?), who ice-skates “in her blue parka and her red earmuffs and her big white mittens—Miss America, on blades! With her mistletoe and her plum pudding (whatever that may be),” but as a grown-up he graduates to the real woman he nicknames The Monkey. And what does he do to abase her? He has her perform with an Italian whore. Yes, he eventually joins in, but not before they enact a bad movie—not Hollywood, but San Fernando Valley triple-X. And his nickname for her, The Monkey? That comes from an episode in her life, from before Portnoy met her, when a couple swingers picked her up and wanted her to eat a banana while she watched them copulate. For having a past that gets him hot, she gets degraded with an animalistic nickname. Her history as an actor is what he wants her for.
Harvey is cut from the same cloth. Growing up in Queens, he fantasized of fame and fortune, and, once he got them, he struggled to maintain them by building himself into a larger-than-life figure. He yelled at employees like he was a studio boss from the 1920s—the only thing missing was a riding crop. He ran Oscars campaigns like they used to in Old Hollywood. And he harassed women not necessarily to use them as instruments of his pleasure, but to use them as instruments of his power.
It goes without saying that nearly every one of these women—Rose McGowan, Ambra Batillana, Laura Madden, Ashley Judd, etc.—was a Gentile, all the better to feed Weinstein’s revenge-tinged fantasy of having risen above his outer-borough, bridge-and-tunnel Semitic origins.
Utterly disgusting. Sick evil racism. Horrible…
The Tablet is a Jewish magazine?
Written entirely by other Jews?
And the author claiming this is…. Jewish?
Editor’s Note: This article was inspired by one from The Huffington Post that says that if you don’t like Harvey Weinstein you’re an evil anti-semite.
The Tablet article above was a serious, sincere piece but its author has been forced to backtrack.
I don’t have anything against Jews per se but I get sick to death of the left saying that any discussion of them is racism.
I do consider Hollywood to be a toxic waste dump that must be destroyed though.
