The Hollywood Elite are Shocked--SHOCKED!--To Hear About Harvey Weinstein's Longstanding Predatory Behaviour

Who's shocked?

George Clooney, for one.

Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence, too.

However, Daniel Greenfield isn't buying it. He says everyone who worked in Tinsel Town knew about the real Harvey, and the reason why they remained silent all those years--nay, decades--was because he used to wield a lot of power.

More recently, he didn't--and that's why he fell.

Simple as that, really.

Update: As per usual, Mark Steyn has a unique take on the subject:
When a decent old stiff such as Mitt Romney talks earnestly about looking for suitable female job candidates and clumsily distills the effort into the phrase "binders full of women", all the smart sophisticated types jump on it and make it a punchline for an antiquated condescension that only confirms how irredeemably misogynist the GOP is. 
By contrast, when Harvey Weinstein corners a TV reporter in the corridor of his restaurant and forces her to watch as he unzips his pants, masturbates, and finally concludes the performance by ejaculating into a pot plant, all you hear, from a couple of larger leaves round the back of the plant, are drenched crickets chirping. Three decades of crickets chirping. 
"Binders full of women": what an appalling sentiment! 
"Stand there and shut up while I masturbate in your general direction": well, say what you like but Harvey has always supported, as Meryl Streep noted today, "good and worthy causes" - like the Hillary campaign...
Me? I have come to the conclusion that, for now, neither the Left--with its Bills (Clinton and Cosby) and Harveys--nor the Right--with its Donald Trump--has any claim on the moral high ground.

Update: More outrage:
She's got Harvey on her heinie?

Silly Dame.

Maybe she can tweak her tat--you know, like Johnny Depp did after he broke up with Winona Ryder.

Update: Don't miss The New Yorker 's takedown of Harvey, by Mia's and Woody's kid.

Update: Remember when Harvey's antics used to slay 'em, not shame 'em?:
His alleged behavior became something of a Hollywood open secret: When the comedian Seth MacFarlane announced Oscar nominees in 2013, he joked, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.” The audience laughed.
Yeah, a Hollywood heavyweight (in every sense of the word) sexually assaulting vulnerable and powerless young women--how utterly high-larious!

I think it's unfair to put DJT into the same group as Bill & Harvey. The worst about Donald so far as I can see is he grabbed a woman by her P...y.
I wonder much about that. The democrats brought forward toward the end of the campaign a few women claiming this or that abuse by DJT, BUT she wasn't one of them! So, what's the rest of the story? A joke? A dare? Whatever, she had to be in on it or she certainly could have brought charges. Not a whisper from her, not even a name. I don't think for one second that DJT is an angel of any sort, but I do believe he loves America, and he loves his family.
