More Liberal Logic in Action

On Monday, the ladies of The View were discussing the Roman Polanski arrest. Whoopi's comment:

It wasn't rape-rape. Huh? What the heck does that mean?

Here is a portion of the 13 year old victim's grand jury testimony:

Q: Did you take a Quaalude?

A: I took part of it.

Q: Where did you get this part?

A: [Polanski] gave it to me.[...]

Q: After he kissed you did he say anything?

A: No.

Q: Did you say anything?

A: No, besides I was just going, "No. Come on, let's go home."

Q: What was said after you indicated that you wanted to go home when you were sitting on the couch?

A: He said "I'll take you home soon."

Q: Then what happened?

A: Then he went down and he started performing cuddliness.

Q: What does that mean?

A: It means he went down on me or he placed his mouth on my vagina.[...]

Q: What happened after that?

A: He started to have intercourse with me.

Q: What do you mean by intercourse?

A: He placed his penis in my vagina.

Q: What did you say, if anything, before he did that?

A: I was mostly just on and off saying, "No, stop." But I wasn't fighting really because I, you know, there was no one else there and I had no place to go.

Q: What did he say, if anything?

A: He didn't answer me when I said, "No."[...]

A: I think he said something like right after I said I was not on the pill, right before he said, "Oh, I won't come inside of you then." And I just went--and he goes--and then he put me--wait. Then he lifted my legs up farther and he went in through my anus.

Q: When you say he went in your anus, what do you mean by that?

A: He put his penis in my butt.

Q: Did he say anything at that time?

A: No.

Q: Did you resist at that time?

A: A little bit, but not really because--(pause.)

Q: Because what?

A: Because I was afraid of him.[...]

Q: Do you know what a climax is?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you know whether he had a climax?

A: Yes.

Q: And how do you know that?

A: Because I could kind of feel it and it was in my underwear. It was in my underwear. It was on my butt and stuff.

Q: When you say that, you believe that he climaxed in your anus?

A: Yes.

Whoopi if that doesn't sound like rape to you, then I truly feel sorry for you. I also would like to think that if this had happened to your daughter your attitude about this being raped would be profoundly different.

138 "hollywood" people have signed a petition demanding the release of Mr. Polanski. Woody Allen of all people signed it. I guess him not thinking there is anything wrong with what Mr. Polanski did comes as no surprise since he is now married to much younger woman who was his step-daughter. Johnathon Demme, Martin Scorsese, and Tilda Swinson are signatories as well.

I was always under the impression that liberals were champions of women's rights, that as a conservative I was the one that didn't care about women. Isn't that what liberals like Whoppi say? Although this isn't really about women, this is about children. He is a CHILD RAPIST. What in that is so hard to understand?

Debra Winger has described this as an arcane technicality.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people?

The same Hollywood perverts who support Polanski, are devoted followers of Dear Leader.

What a shock...

There was a day when Polanski would have been convicted and hung by the neck until he was dead. We're a lot more understanding now. However if it was my kid, the kindest thing you could do for Polanski would be to leave him in custody.

I'm with you, conservative girl. These left wing Hollywood screwballs are picking up for one of their own and that's it.
Whoopie said, "it wasn't "rape" rape". I guess that's like saying, it depends on what the meaning of "is" is.
Champions of women's rights goes out the window when it's one of their friends who did the nasty deed. They have no morals and these are the celebrities the kids look up to.

Whoopi's been going off the deep end for awhile. But this really takes the cake - how sick.

Celebrities shouldn't be above the law.

The Redhead Riter said...

This is SICK...and I mean really SICK. We should hang him by a noose in front of the capital.

Has Goldberg read the transcript? If she has, her comment is even more disturbing. And what the hell is "rape rape"? Isn't rape, well, rape!?

This is one is beyond comprehension. As I try to find the connections between liberal ideology and the position of defending Polanski, I keep running into dead ends. There's nothing within liberalism (that I can see) that justifies "forgetting about it"!

Just a conservative girl said...

Thanks so much for coming by my blog. I always enjoy reading yours.

I don't think it is so much liberalism as it is elitism. He is famous and makes good movies. Or so I understand. As I refuse to watch his movies. I will not give my money to a rapist.

He is one of them, so he deserves a pass. I have to believe that if they read the transcript they would feel differently. At least I hope so.
