Interview with the victim and an associate of Polanski
Roman Polanski was arrested this week in Switzerland and faces extradition to the U.S. for raping a 13 year old girl some three decades ago. I simply cannot understand how Hollywood can stand behind this man and believe it should be dropped. This is clearly a difference in liberalism and conservatism. If this is a shining example of Hollywood liberalism, I am proud to be a redneck conservative.
I love how Whoopie says, it wasn't a "RAPE RAPE". What IS a "RAPE RAPE", Whoopie? This was a 13 year old girl who said NO. You seem to believe it is not a "RAPE RAPE" because she was aware. Hmm....she said no....so he drugs her. You seem to think it was not a "RAPE RAPE" because her parents were aware. Whoopie, it was a "RAPE RAPE". Give ya the benefit of the doubt....let's just say she WAS aware....and Roman had her parents approval. It is still a "RAPE RAPE". A grown man having sex with a child....is RAPE! What part of that do you not understand? If her parents were aware, they should be prosecuted too. In fact, they should be charged with nothing less than endangering the welfare of a child. If they were aware...they should be charged with the same charges as the rapist, Roman Polanski. Get the picture? A 13 year old is not capable of consent with a grown man. This was a "RAPE RAPE" that was plea bargained down to sex with a minor. Apparently, the judge changed his mind. Polanski, fearing a hundred years, fled.
I would have expected better from you, Whoopie. You wouldn't "necessarily" want your child having sex at 13 or 14? Is having sex the same as being raped?
Whoopie, define "necessarily". I am having a hard time with this one. I do not want my children having sex until they are adults...and hopefully married. I just cannot seem to think of anything that would "necessarily" would make me feel any different.
Not even rape.
Debra Winger, you are pretty damn witless too.
Kudos to Joy Behar. I never agree with her, but I do this time.
