In the #MeToo era, a number of prominent Hollywood power players, mostly progressive socialist democrats have faced decades-old allegations of improper behavior which has cost them their lucrative and prestigious positions. Is this justice or the tyranny of a minority of radical feminists who want to remake America and erase the differences between the sexes? What about the statute of limitations and facing your accusers in a court of law before an impartial trier of fact? Is American justice dead and replaced by the rule of a politically correct mob? Are there nefarious reasons for this attack that have nothing to do with past misdeeds and everything to do with current court battles over the leadership of corporations? Check it out for yourself.
In another expose of the alleged sexual escapades, author Ronan Farrow targets another major progressive Hollywood figure as an alleged sexual predator…
Les Moonves and CBS Face Allegations of Sexual Misconduct -- Six women accuse the C.E.O. of harassment and intimidation, and dozens more describe abuse at his company.
For more than twenty years, Leslie Moonves has been one of the most powerful media executives in America. As the chairman and C.E.O. of CBS Corporation, he oversees shows ranging from “60 Minutes” to “The Big Bang Theory.” His portfolio includes the premium cable channel Showtime, the publishing house Simon & Schuster, and a streaming service, CBS All Access. Moonves, who is sixty-eight, has a reputation for canny hiring and project selection. The Wall Street Journal recently called him a “TV programming wizard”; the Hollywood Reporter dubbed him a “Wall Street Hero.” In the tumultuous field of network television, he has enjoyed rare longevity as a leader. Last year, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, he earned nearly seventy million dollars, making him one of the highest-paid corporate executives in the world.
In recent months, Moonves has become a prominent voice in Hollywood’s #MeToo movement. In December, he helped found the Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, which is chaired by Anita Hill. “It’s a watershed moment,” Moonves said at a conference in November. “I think it’s important that a company’s culture will not allow for this. And that’s the thing that’s far-reaching. There’s a lot we’re learning. There’s a lot we didn’t know.” ‘'
But Moonves’s private actions belie his public statements. Six women who had professional dealings with him told me that, between the nineteen-eighties and the late aughts, Moonves sexually harassed them. Four described forcible touching or kissing during business meetings, in what they said appeared to be a practiced routine. Two told me that Moonves physically intimidated them or threatened to derail their careers. All said that he became cold or hostile after they rejected his advances, and that they believed their careers suffered as a result. “What happened to me was a sexual assault, and then I was fired for not participating,” the actress and writer Illeana Douglas told me. All the women said they still feared that speaking out would lead to retaliation from Moonves, who is known in the industry for his ability to make or break careers. “He has gotten away with it for decades,” the writer Janet Jones, who alleges that she had to shove Moonves off her after he forcibly kissed her at a work meeting, told me. “And it’s just not O.K.”

Wait! What about Bill Clinton and his enabler Hillary Clinton…
Has anyone noticed that few radical feminists, normally progressive socialist democrats, and other liberals rarely attack Bill Clinton as a sexual predator whose allegations of rape are often overlooked at his is almost universally feted as an iconic figure? Has anyone complained about Hillary Clinton falsely and maliciously attacking Bill Clinton’s accusers and enabling his predications until this very day? Why are progressives so tolerant of Clinton’s cohorts like Ron Burkle whose jet was called “Air Fu*k One” when Bill Clinton was aboard? Or Bill’s pedophile buddy and his “Lolita Express” jet that ferried Bill Clinton to his private island?
Could this be a diversionary attack to remove Moonves?
Shari Redstone Calls for ‘Thorough, Open’ Investigation of Leslie Moonves by CBS
A representative for CBS controlling shareholder Shari Redstone has weighed in on plans for CBS to investigate sexual misconduct claims against chairman-CEO Leslie Moonves, defending Redstone against rumors that she has helped fuel the reporting on Moonves’ behavior to gain favor in the legal battle for control of the company.
The New Yorker is expected to publish a story today detailing allegations of inappropriate behavior by Moonves over his long career. The CBS board of directors responded, even before the story’s publication, that it would mount an investigation into the allegations.
“The malicious insinuation that Ms. Redstone is somehow behind the allegations of inappropriate personal behavior by Mr. Moonves or today’s reports is false and self-serving,” Redstone spokeswoman Sara Evans said. “Ms. Redstone hopes that the investigation of these allegations is thorough, open and transparent.”
Bottom line …
It appears that the radical feminists, normally supportive of progressive socialist democrats, are striking out against powerful men – even if they are powerful Hollywood, business or media executives. Anything to destroy the patriarchy, from the constitution to works of art, are fair game for the radical feminists.
We are so screwed when we allow fringe elements to dictate to the majority which has since been cowed by political correctness, name and shame labeling, and the moral equivalency which allows one to ignore the important in favor trivial.
And let us not forget “cui bono?,” a legal Latin phrase which literally meaning "who benefits?."
