Recent charges of sexual abuse of children in Hollywood just tip of iceberg? According to some in a position to know, the answer is “yes.” And it’s been going on for a very long time say former stars like Paul Petersen, who played the teenaged son on The Donna Reed Show. By coincidence, Hollyweird is overwhelmingly liberal Democrat. We only mention that because if the situation were reversed, you’d never hear the end of it.

Maybe the Hollywood pervs are all Penn State graduates.

Child rape is everywhere. It’s the secret that the human race keeps from itself… so to speak. The only reason you hear about it being “so prevalent” in the Catholic church is because they want to destroy the church. Once they’ve brought Christianity down, then they’ll just go ahead and legalize pedophilia, and rewrite history so that the pedophile priests were “persecuted” and it was the uptight, “sexually repressed” right wing that was persecuting them.

Save this post and read it again in 20 years or so. See if I’m not spot-on.

Hollywood has made a number of movies about abusive priests in recent years. I can’t wait to see the movies about the Hollywood child abusers. What? You say I’m probably going to have to wait? I remember seeing some Hollywood stars stand up and give Roman Polanski a standing ovation at the Academy Awards a few years back in a particularly despicable display.

That’s nothing to worry about. It wasn’t “applause-applause.”

(I’m NEVER going to forget Woopie’s remark, and I’m NEVER going to forgive her.)

Yeah, high on the list of clear indicators that someone’s totally morally bankrupt is where they are so twisted that they either minimize rape like Whoopi did, or use it casually, like “Plugs” Biden did.

I have no idea how a person can become so lost that rape becomes a casual thing to interject into conversation or minimize when they think the person’s some king of “artist”.

And this is a surprise to whom? As referenced in the article, the casting couch is real-do you really think the age of the actor makes any difference? My Mom’s family moved to California when she was about 16 and gorgeous. A number of people tried to get her into the movies, but they all required a few “favors” along the way. She resisited, and eventually moved back to San Antonio and lived with relatives until her parents returned. Even if you take out the sexual abuse, it is well documented that stars were psycologivcally and sometimes physically abused. Do you think Judy Garland LIKED being starved to look younger than she was on the Wizard of Oz? That the uppers and downers and diet pills were her choice? More recently, Carrie Fisher, already beautiful at 18 was forced to lose more weight for star wars. There is a pattern of abuse and of hoilding actors under the thumbs of the powerful not only in Hollywood, but everywhere. Why do you think Roam Plansky can’t come back to the U.S.? He got caught.

In case you were wondering why so many…’entertainers’…were adamant about Roman Polanski not deserving jail time…

Because, y’know, that wasn’t “rape-rape.”

OK, add Hollywood studio employee to the list of jobs I won’t do. I have a particular statement that I use when referring to child abusers………

“If I see someone abuse a child, I’ll fucking kill them”.

I’ll add to your statement: If I even hear of someone abusing a child I will torture them until they confess then kill them.

I would vote for Obama before I would turn a blind eye to child abuse of any kind.

Wow — that’s some pretty strong feelings right there.
