Meryl Streep in line for special Oscar for hypocrisy
The #MeToo movement
has struck again, forcing the hand of the Motion Picture Academy, creating
the obvious need for Meryl Streep to receive a special Lifetime
Achievement Oscar for best performance as a hypocrite.
Shameless, like ALL liberals
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has voted to expel convicted
rapists Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski.
Kristopher Tapley and
Gene Maddaus report for Variety:
The decision to remove Cosby and Polanski from the membership was made
Tuesday, May 1 at a scheduled board meeting.
The move comes a week after
Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault
brought against him by Andrea Constand. Cosby has been accused of sexual
assault by as many as 60 women, a few of which testified at the emotional
Polanski has been on the lam for 40 years, ever since fleeing the
country while awaiting sentencing for statutory rape in 1978.
Both men were
convicted of administering drugs to their victims prior to raping them, but in
Polanski's case, the victim was a 13-year-old girl, and the rape included anal
violation. This monster became a cause célèbre among the
smart set in Hollywood back when well known sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein
was the reigning arbiter of quality films. The queen of P.C.
self-righteousness, Meryl Streep, actual leaped to her feet to encourage a
standing ovation for the convicted rapist when he won the Academy Award for
Best Directing in 2011 for The Pianist.
Why did the Academy,
after all these years, expel Polanski now, when it previously saw fit to honor
him with its top award for his specialty? If you are going to cite
#MeToo, that movement has been rampant for quite some time
now. Harvey Weinstein, whose exposure set off the #MeToo imbroglio,
already has been expelled, without touching Polanski.
I think the only
logical conclusion is that the publicity attendant upon Cosby's conviction and
looming imprisonment forced the Academy's hand. Expelling Cosby
while leaving Polanski untouched would lead to charges of racism.
The entire affair
reflects the utter hypocrisy, cowardice and sniveling political correctness of
the Hollywood community that considers its role as including instructing the
rest of us on politics and morality.
