Happy effing Monday.
Let me add one more Hollywood male to get away with a horrendous crime–director, Roman Polanski who has been on cushy house arrest in his Swiss chalet will not be extradited to the U.S. for his charges of drugging the raping a 13 year old girl during a modeling shoot in the home of Jack Nicholson in 1977.
The 76-year-old French-Polish film director Roman Polanski will not be extradited to the USA” the Swiss Justice Ministry said in a statement. “The freedom-restricting measures against him have been revoked.””Mr. Polanski can now move freely. Since 12:30 today, he’s a free man,” Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf said.
I’d like for you all to have this image in your head today:
“… according to the victim’s grand jury testimony, Roman Polanski instructed her to get into a jacuzzi naked, refused to take her home when she begged to go, began kissing her even though she said no and asked him to stop; performed cunnilingus on her as she said no and asked him to stop; put his penis in her vagina as she said no and asked him to stop; asked if he could penetrate her anally, to which she replied, “No,” then went ahead and did it anyway, until he had an orgasm.”
Okay. Go back and re-read that paragraph. Now picture it with a 13 year old girl that you know. Go on. Do it.
Here’s what I predict. All of the dirty “artistes” will gather together at next year’s Oscars to welcome Polanski back into their open arms, while singing his praises, referring to him as “The Genius” while begging to work with him on his next cinematic masterpiece, completely dismissing the fact that this creep anally raped a 13 year old girl. But hey, “it was the 70’s, man. Things were different back then, man. The girl knew what was happening, man. ” Actually, they won’t even mention that last part, but we know Polanski’s champions (I’m talking to YOU, Johnny Depp!) will indeed celebrate and go on the record that this whole thing amounted to a witch-hunt of one the the world’s greatest directors. And let’s not forget our other pervy director, Woody Allen’s statement to a French radio station regarding Polanski:
“It’s something that happened many years ago,” said Allen, who famously married an adopted Asian teenager that he had helped raise with Mia Farrow. “[Polanski] has suffered … he has paid his dues … he’s an artist, he’s a nice person, he did something wrong and he paid for it.”
Excuse me while I go wretch for about an hour.
Oh, and Lindsay Lohan will serve more time for her “crimes” than Polanski did back before he fled the U.S. like the creepy, cowardly asshole that he truly is.
