Harvey Weinstein has been a longtime sexual predator and most likely has treated women poorly, harassed and assaulted them, and even raped a number of women for decades. Everyone in Hollywood knew about it and few ever spoke out publicly about his behavior. He was protected by like-minded executives, producers, and directors who didn’t want to shake up the status quo. Their justification; “Well we may not like it, but that’s the way this business operates.”
What he did was unconscionable and saying that he is a product of the sixties and all men were chauvinists is hardly an excuse. Lots of men grew up in the sixties and the overwhelming majority did not assault or harass women.
So how did he get away with this for so long? Like many things, it all came down to money and power. His company did business with most major studios and they made lots of money from his productions. And while his business partners knew his reputation, they looked the other way. It’s also telling that written into his contract were clauses indicating that if the company got sued for Harvey’s sexual harassment behavior, he would make up any loses that came out of studio coffers. Just the fact this language was in the contract should have told all the board members that this was an accident waiting to happen. Again they turned a blind eye to his behavior.
He donated millions to Democratic candidates including Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Now those folks are hedging about what they will do with his money. [The Clinton foundation has now publicly said that it has already spent his donations and thus cannot return the money or donate it.] I can just imagine the dinner table conversations, “Yeh I know he raped those women, and that is was wrong, but do we really have to give those millions to a battered women’s shelter when we could use it for our offices in the Bahamas?”
The Democratic Party and their minions have championed feminism but it seems that the most liberal areas of the country are the most sexist. Hollywood, Silicon Valley, New York Metro area, and Washington D.C. are the bastion of sexism and unequal compensation for women. Where is the outrage from the feminists in those areas?
Solve the Problem Become a Muslim
Quite simply Harvey could have avoided all of this if he converted to Islam a few years back. In Islam, rape jihad is sanctioned. This would seem to provide an “out” for Democratic Liberals who are friends of Islam and their sexist traditions. Sex slavery is sanctioned under Islam. Sex slavery and rape of the infidel is sanctioned and rewarded under Islam. Muslim clerics all over the world confirm the right to have sex slaves. It is in the Qur’an — the word of Allah. (See below for more on what the Quran says about sex slavery)
And yes in the United States he could still be prosecuted for the rapes, but at least the “Friends of Harvey” could say, “Well that’s just his religion, so we have to be tolerant.”
While the liberal left is aghast over Harvey Weinstein we seem to overlook the raping, assaulting and slavery of women in the Islamic world. The Clinton Foundation accepted $40 million from Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates; all countries where it’s okay to kill your wife or daughter under the guise of Honor Killings. Also, we should note that killing gays and lesbians is also their rule of law where they can be tortured or thrown from the top of buildings. Tell me again, how Hillary Clinton is fighting for Women’s Rights?
Quran passages on Sex Slavery
Sex slavery and rape is in accordance with Quran chapter and verse. Sex slaves are war booty. Following a victory, Muhammad would usually distribute the captives, both male and female, as slaves to his soldiers. And Muhammad is the “perfect example for Muslims.” According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must (eventually) win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess, for they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)
