Former Miramax Screenwriter Posts Harvey Weinstein Mea Culpa: "Everybody Fu*king Knew"

The LA Times asks: so who has dared to defend Harvey Weinstein?

The answer?: "Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, actress Lindsay Lohan, actor Tony Denison, fashion designer Donna Karan and director Woody Allen rose to Weinstein’s defense despite a tidal wave of industry condemnation."

Of course, each of these has subsequently and awkwardly walked back their initial enthusiasm for defending Weinstein as more accusations piled on and were substantiated. But what we should really be talking about is the decades of silence across the entertainment industry which few brave souls tried to warn about years ago.


It was such an "open secret" that Courtney Love could say this back in 2005 at a red carpet appearance, though also worrying, "I'll get libeled if I say it...":

And when Hollywood sexual abuse survivor Corey Feldmen tried to talk generally about the Hollywood subculture of rampant sexual assault and pedophilia with cameras rolling on "The View" in 2013... well if you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely one for the historical record which should never be forgotten. Though Feldmen was speaking about his own dark experience involving other powerful film industry predators and not Weinstein in particular, the response he got from one well-known host is certainly indicative of what victims were and are up against.

“Are you saying they are pedophiles and that they are still in this business?” then-host Barbara Walters asked. “Yes,” Feldman replied.

Walters immediately tried to shut Feldmen down with, "You're damaging an entire industry!"

And if it wasn't already clear by now, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg - who was made a star by Miramax - has just posted a revealing bit of prose in the form of an intense mea culpa to his Facebook page concerning what "everybody-fu*king-knew" for not just years, but for decades concerning Weinstein. 

At Miramax Rosenberg wrote the popular movies "Beautiful Girls" and "Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead" and acknowledges that “they gave me my career” as part of that period when Harvey Weinstein was the center of a golden age for the indie film universe.

Excerpts from former Miramax screenwriter Scott Rosenberg's Facebook post, whose mentor was Weinstein throughout the 1990's and early 2000's:

So, yeah, I was there.
And let me tell you one thing.
Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing:
Everybody-fucking-knew.
Not that he was raping.
No, that we never heard.

But we were aware of a certain pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful.

 

We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite.
There was nothing secret about this voracious rapacity; like a gluttonous ogre out of the Brothers Grimm.
All couched in vague promises of potential movie roles.
(and, it should be noted: there were many who actually succumbed to his bulky charms. Willingly. Which surely must have only impelled him to cast his fetid net even wider).
But like I said: everybody-fu*king-knew.

 

And to me, if Harvey’s behavior is the most reprehensible thing one can imagine, a not-so-distant second is the current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of bullshit righteousness.
Because everybody-fu*king-knew.
And do you know how I am sure this is true?
Because I was there.
And I saw you.
And I talked about it with you.
You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers.
And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models.
You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians.
I saw you.
All of you.

And more:

So, yeah, I am sorry.
Sorry and ashamed.
Because, in the end, I was complicit.
I didn’t say shit.
I didn’t do shit.

 

Harvey was nothing but wonderful to me.
So I reaped the rewards and I kept my mouth shut.
And for that, once again, I am sorry.
But you should be sorry, too.
With all these victims speaking up…
To tell their tales.
Shouldn’t those who witnessed it from the sidelines do the same?
Instead of retreating to the cowardly, canopied confines of faux-outrage?
Doesn’t being a bystander bring with it the responsibility of telling the truth, however personally disgraceful it may be?

 

You know who are.
You know that you knew.
And do you know how I know that you knew?
Because I was there with you.
And because everybody-fu*king-knew.

Well of course everyone knew about Weinstein. What's even more remarkable is the very same people who tried to convince the public of peeing Russian prostitutes, international intrigue and "collusion" with foreign governments pretended to not see...rape, molestation and Weinstein's sperm on everything from cooking utensils to potted plants  ;-)

Excuse me for repeating myself

It's infuriating that these privileged brats actually believe they're so special, they deserve a pass for sexual harassment, rape, and even pedophilia, while the average Joe would be locked up immediately, and branded a sexual predator for the rest of their life.

But what, in my opinion, is worse, is the way the Press has completely shown their asses on this issue. Watching these rats feign ignorance in front of cameras, and The Press refusing to push back, refusing to point out they had to have known, ITS NOT A SECRET, and it's never been a secret, is pathetic! Everyone in Hollywood knew, except their closest friends, come on? Both the Politicians, and the press knew damn well this shit was going on all along, and worse! It puts a glaring light on the depth of corruption in this Country, that the most powerful among us are the most heinous among us.

It's been obvious to many, the free press died some years ago, but this week has removed all doubt. Free thought will be the next casualty, with a "press" who openly admits their job is to control what you think.

There are innumerable nasty things in Judaism. This is not one of them. The thesis here deals not with the mind of a child violator, rather it affirms the sexual innocence of a violated child. As far as a small child is concerned an attack on its genitals is about as sexy as something poked in its eye.

If that is their plan, they fucked up majorly (as per usual). They started the pulling ot the thread. It will all fall apart before it is over. Too many are coming forward now. Watched an interview Molyneuz did with an actor subjected to the Gay Mafia. Pedophilia will be revealed next, and from there, human trafficking, and then the secret satanic rites where they murder children.It's all coming down. We MUST demand JUSTICE.

  This is the idea developed in the link you posted and it does seem plausible. I think that the Goyim are awakening in such great numbers and quickly now that there will be no going back... "Harvey Weinstein was taken down as a warning to every agent of Deep State — both covert and overt — not to abandon the Purple Revolution.  And should they disobey, they will be HARVEYed  KEY POINT: If they can crush a guy like Harvey Weinstein,they can annihilate anyone, anytime, anywhere.  They choseHarvey because he’s the biggest and the baddest of them all.Sure, there are those who are more powerful than Weinstein,but he’s the most notorious of the Hollywood power-brokers.Now everyone has seen how vulnerable they are to beingHARVEYed, should they leave the PR reservation.  Therewas no better way to deliver the message.  And especiallythat no one is indispensable, and everyone is perishable asfar as “Bolshevik” revolutions go."

That is one stupid theory. The deficit of logic is so blatant that I have to wonder if it was not written by a 8 year old.Most people who are  entertainers a complete morons. Those empty heads of theirs can be filled with any kind of a illogical but emotionally appealing gobbly gook. These people have weak personalities and crave peer acceptance. They are basically emotionally middle school children in adult bodies.

Nah.  They have to take care of the real evil, the Daily Stormer.That's how twisted these fucks are.  Daily Stormer takes precedence.The jew-led perverting of western sexuality is headed in one direction it seems to me, the legalization and outright encouragement of pedophilia.  NAMBLA has always been headed by jews.  But somehow I don;'t think we'll be seeing pedophilia legalized in Israel.
