What everyone has largely ignored about the Weinstein scandal

"Ah, the good ole days for Harvey"

A lot has been written about Harvey Weinstein and the sex scandal and quite frankly, most  of it has been rubbish, written by hacks and scandal mongers who utterly failed to see past the superficial surface of the affair and dig into the real reasons behind the take down of one of the leading figures in Hollywood.

Of course, Harvey Weinstein is an asshole, a terrible human being, just one of many in Hollywood – a place that has always been run by such people, invariably Jewish and invariably terrible human beings.

However, this sex scandal is not about exposing Hollywood and it’s Jewish nature, it is about destroying Harvey Weinstein and what almost everyone had failed to do is to ask why?

Why Weinstein? What has he done to bring this on himself, who has he upset? These are the key questions that almost no-one has bothered to ask.

I think the most obvious place to look for an answer is in Weinstein’s political life, his fundraising and campaign donations, who he has supported and who he has made his enemies by doing so.

Harvey Weinstein is a Democrat, a supporter of Hillary Clinton and before her, Obama and John Kerry.

In the CNN article “Harvey Weinstein is now a big problem for Democrats” Chris Cillizza noted:

“Weinstein has, for years and years, been a major — and high profile — Democratic donor and fundraiser. He has doled out hundreds of thousands — and helped raise millions — for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Weinstein had made 185 individual donations to a variety of Democratic candidate and liberal-aligned organizations dating back to the early 1990s.”

As Cillizza also noted, it is Weinstein’s fundraising activities that have been at the forefront of his political involvment:

“He’s also hosted a series of fundraisers at his various homes around the country over the years. In 2013, he hosted then-President Barack Obama for a fundraiser at his New York City apartment. In 2012, Obama did a fundraiser for his re-election bid at Weinstein’s home in Connecticut. During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign at his New York City apartment and another with fashion mogul Anna Wintour.”

This fundraising for Democrat candidates is nothing new, in the article “The City Politic. Cash and Kerry. The city’s wealthy Kerry backers have a message for undecided donors: Fund the front-runner—now—or lose to Bush later” by Greg Sargent, New York magazine, February 16, 2004; we find that Weinstein was a key supporter of John Kerry in his 2004 presidential campaign:

“Harvey Weinstein decided to back Kerry after a long period of fence-sitting. Weinstein was considered a coup, since he can organize celebrity-studded events that can move hefty sums of Hollywood cash into political coffers.”

Weinstein’s political fundraising activities date back to the 1990s, but it is in the last 17 years that Weinstein has become a major player in Democratic financial circles, as explained in the article “Harvey Weinstein has donated over $1 million to Democrats since 2000 – here are some of the biggest names” by Allan Smith and Skye Gould:

“Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is one of the Democratic Party’s most prolific donors.

Since the 2000 election cycle, Weinstein has donated nearly $1 million in his own name in addition to collecting and providing roughly $1.5 million as a part of “bundled” donations, which the Center for Responsive Politics defines as contributions provided by “people with friends in high places who, after bumping against personal contribution limits, turn to those friends, associates, and, well, anyone who’s willing to give, and deliver the checks to the candidate.”

Top Democrats including former President Barack Obama, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken, Cory Booker, and Kirsten Gillibrand have all received contributions from Weinstein, the Hollywood mega-executive who co-founded Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company.”

So, with Weinstein taken out, one of the key figures in the fundraising apparatus that has supported the Democratic party for two decades is out of the picture. However, the bad news for the Democrats only begins with the loss of a key fundraiser, a far bigger concern is the guilt by association, the bad publicity of being closely linked to a serial sex offender. Obviously, Democrats who received funds directly from Weinstein, including Hillary Clinton, have been quick to distance themselves from Weinstein, insist they knew nothing of his sexual misadventures and stated they would give the money he donated to charity.

The real reason, the deep, underlying motive behind it all is something so dark, so evil, so inhumane and disgusting to any normal person, that few dare to admit it even exists: the elite pedophile child sex abuse and murder ring that has deeply infiltrated and largely controls the US.

With DC worse than Hollywood and the Franklin disclosures showing the GOP to be running a huge child sex ring, why chose to expose Democrat supporter Weinstein and the Hollywood casting couch?

With children being victimized by America’s most powerful, why build a victimisation narrative that covers multi-millionaire women long famed for easy virtue?

The answer is simple, to provide a powerful distraction, a US equivalent of the UK phone hacking scandal that was created to distract from the investigations into the elite pedophile ring that had been stirred up in the wake of the Jimmy Saville case and a number of other high-profile figures being exposed as pedophiles.

I expect we will see more attacks on other prominent Democrat supporters in the near future, further distractions. Who is behind it is obvious – the right wing, those who support the Republicans, which includes the pro-Israel lobby and the Zionists. We have long known that these people are deeply involved in child abuse, pedophilia and child murder, sometimes with satanic ritualistic motives; they often use this as a tool to blackmail and control senior political and governmental figures.

By throwing Harvey Weinstein to the dogs, exposing nothing more than the existence of a vile casting couch in Hollywood, something that has been a more or less open secret for more than a century, the elite pedophiles are serving up a primetime Hollywood distraction from their own, far more sordid and downright evil activities.
