How low can Hollywood go? The Harvey Weinstein scandal cast a bright spotlight on just how depraved the media-entertainment complex is, and now one of the most successful filmmakers of the last three decades has been caught defending pedophilia and statutory rape.
Controversial director Quentin Tarantino, who is known for edgy and violent movies such as “Pulp Fiction” — as well as his anti-cop rhetoric — is now under scrutiny after a disturbing admission from 2003 resurfaced.
During the interview with radio shock-jock Howard Stern, the film mogul defended fellow movie director and convicted child rapist Roman Polanski — and made sickening comments about how an adult having sex with an underage girl was fine.
Stern, himself known for being fairly edgy, challenged Tarantino to explain why “Hollywood embraces this mad man, this director who raped a 13-year-old.”
That’s when Tarantino jumped to defend the man who committed the 1977 rape and fled the United States in 1978 to avoid prison time. Polanski has been a fugitive from
American justice ever since.
“He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape, that’s not quite the same thing,” Tarantino insisted, according to The Washington Times.
“He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape,” Tarantino declared. “To me, when you use the word ‘rape,’ you’re talking about violent, throwing them down — it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world. You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around.”
Apparently being a pedophile and taking advantage of a 13-year-old girl is completely fine as long as you don’t throw them down. If you just drug them to make them helpless, like Polanski did to that child before having sex with her, it’s all good.
Welcome to liberal Hollywood.
Polanski himself, in his 40s at the time, pleaded guilty to “unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor,” and nearly everyone involved admits that the sexual activity took place.
But Tarantino apparently didn’t have a problem with it.
“She wanted to have it and dated the guy,” said Tarantino. When Howard Stern and co-host Robin Quivers pushed back and reminded the director that the entire point of underage sex laws is because children are not mature enough to consent, Tarantino only doubled down on his defense of the rapist.
“Look, she was down with this,” Tarantino insisted. “She was down to party with Roman.”
The “she was asking for it” defense is indescribably ugly when it involves the rape of a grown woman. When it comes to drugging and raping a girl who’s barely into her teenage years, it comes close to being unforgivable.
But that’s sexual liberation, Hollywood-style.
Should anyone truly be surprised? After all, Tarantino is a longtime friend and partner of accused pervert Harvey Weinstein, and apparently saw nothing wrong with his crass behavior, either.
“The former Weinstein Company boss distributed Tarantino’s breakout film, 1992’s ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ and they’ve been working together ever since,” reported Entertainment Weekly.
“In addition to being producing partners, Tarantino and Weinstein are close friends. Weinstein threw an engagement party for Tarantino and his fiancée, Israeli singer Daniella Pick, earlier this year,” continued EW.
While liberals are desperately trying to pretend that they are the heroes standing up for women, powerful progressives like the Clintons, Weinstein, and Tarantino are actually all part of the same sickening circle.
It’s time to call out these people for what they are: Amoral opportunists who believe that power and success excuses perversion and even child rape. The jig is up, and Americans aren’t falling for their sanctimonious posturing anymore.
