Woody Allen calls Weinstein claims “very sad for everyone involved”

This. Is. Rich.

Allen isn’t interested in anyone’s “horror stories,” just making movies. Pretty much sums up Hollyweird’s desire to coverup for a predator.

From Hollywood Reporter: Woody Allen has opened up to the BBC about the sexual harassment and assault allegations made against Harvey Weinstein.

The filmmaker, whose latest movie, Wonder Wheel, premiered at the New York Film Festival on Saturday night, told the British media outlet that he’d heard rumors of improper conduct by the mogul but, “No one ever came to me or told me horror stories with any real seriousness. And they wouldn’t, because you are not interested in it. You are interested in making your movie.”

Beyond that Allen said he’d never heard any allegations of rape and sexual assault made against Weinstein.

“But you do hear a million fanciful rumors all the time. And some turn out to be true and some – many – are just stories about this actress, or that actor,” Allen said.

He added that he found the allegations against Weinstein, “very sad for everybody involved.”

“Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that [his] life is so messed up,” Allen said. “There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”

He also said he hoped that the allegations would lead to “some amelioration,” but cautioned, “You also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either.”

“But sure, you hope that something like this could be transformed into a benefit for people rather than just a sad or tragic situation,” Allen said.

Allen worked with Weinstein on a number of movies including 1994’s Bullets Over Broadway, 1995’s Mighty Aphrodite, 1996’s Everyone Says I Love You and 1998’s Celebrity, all of which were distributed by Miramax. Allen’s 2008 film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, was released by The Weinstein Company.

Allen has faced his own sexual assault controversy, accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, which he’s repeatedly denied.

Still, others, like Allen’s son with Mia Farrow, and Dylan’s brother, Ronan Farrow, have supported Dylan’s allegations. Ronan Farrow is the author of the New Yorker exposé that revealed more alleged instances of sexual harassment and assault by Weinstein, including three women who accused the mogul of raping them.

Allen’s Wonder Wheel is being distributed by Amazon Studios. That company’s vp, Roy Price, has also been accused of sexual harassment and was this week suspended in the wake of a claim from one of the company’s producers.

  1. WOODY ALLEN FORGOT TO SAY THAT HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS A DEVOUT TALMUDIC JEW, LIKE HIMSELF:

    UNHOLY PERVERSION

    BABYLONIAN TALMUD, Kethuboth 11b.

    “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing …like putting a finger in the eye”

    BABYLONIAN TALMUD, Menahoth 43b-44a.

    “A Jewish man is obligated to say the following prayer every day: Thank you God for not making me a gentile, a woman or a slave”.

    TORAH/TALMUD

    The Talmud is Judaism’s holiest book (actually a collection of books). Its authority takes precedence over the JEWISH Bible in Judaism. Evidence of this may be found in the Talmud itself, Erubin 21b (Soncino edition):

    "My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah (JEWISH Bible)."
    

    Jewish scholar Hyam Maccoby, in Judaism on Trial, quotes Rabbi Yehiel ben Joseph:

    "Further, without the Talmud, we would not be able to understand passages in the Bible...God has handed this authority to the sages and tradition is a necessity as well as scripture. The Sages also made enactments of their own...anyone who does not study the Talmud cannot understand Scripture."
    

    The Talmud (and not the JEWISH Scriptures) is the legal/canonical text which obligates those who follow the Jewish religion. It is from the Talmud that laws, regulations, and world views are drawn. In practice, the everyday life of the modern religious person is drawn and influenced by the Talmud.

    In the late 19th century, most European Jews were a people of the book. But their book wasn’t the JEWISH Bible. It was the BABYLONIAN TALMUD. To this day, the Talmud remains Judaism’s highest moral, ethical and legal authority.

    THREE YEAR OLD BRIDES

    Second century Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai, one of Judaism’s very greatest rabbis and a creator of Kabbalah, sanctioned pedophilia—permitting molestation of baby girls even younger than three! He proclaimed,

    “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and a day is permitted to marry a priest.” 1

    Subsequent rabbis refer to ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia as “halakah,” or binding Jewish law. 2

    Has ben Yohai, child rape advocate, been disowned by modern Jews? Hardly. Today, in ben Yohai’s hometown of Meron, Israel, tens of thousands of orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews gather annually for days and nights of singing and dancing in his memory.

    References to pedophilia abound in the Talmud. They occupy considerable sections of Treatises Kethuboth and Yebamoth and are enthusiastically endorsed by the Talmud’s definitive legal work, Treatise Sanhedrin.

    THE PHARISEES ENDORSED CHILD SEX

    The rabbis of the Talmud are notorious for their legal hair-splitting, and quibbling debates. But they share rare agreement about their right to molest three year old girls. In contrast to many hotly debated issues, hardly a hint of dissent rises against the prevailing opinion (expressed in many clear passages) that pedophilia is not only normal but scriptural as well! It’s as if the rabbis have found an exalted truth whose majesty silences debate.

    Because the Talmudic authorities who sanction pedophilia are so renowned, and because pedophilia as “halakah” is so explicitly emphasized, not even the translators of the Soncino edition of the Talmud (1936) dared insert a footnote suggesting the slightest criticism. They only comment: “Marriage, of course, was then at a far earlier age than now.” 3

    In fact, footnote 5 to Sanhedrin 60b rejects the right of a Talmudic rabbi to disagree with ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia:

    “How could they [the rabbis], contrary to the opinion of R. Simeon ben Yohai, which has scriptural support, forbid the marriage of the young proselyte?” 4

    1 Yebamoth 60b, p. 402.
    2 Yebamoth 60b, p. 403.
    3 Sanhedrin 76a.
    4 In Yebamoth 60b, p. 404, Rabbi Zera disagrees that sex with girls under three years and one day should be endorsed as halakah.

    OUT OF BABYLON

    It was in Babylon after the exile under Nebuchadnezzar in 597 BC that Judaism’s leading sages probably began to indulge in pedophilia. Babylon was the staggeringly immoral capitol of the ancient world. For 1600 years, the world’s largest population of Jews flourished within it.

    As an example of their evil, Babylonian priests said a man’s religious duty included regular sex with temple prostitutes. Bestiality was widely tolerated. So Babylonians hardly cared whether a rabbi married a three year old girl.

    But with expulsion of the Jews in the 11th century AD, mostly to European lands, Gentile tolerance of Jewish pedophilia abruptly ended.

    Still, a shocking contradiction lingers: If Jews want to revere the transcendent wisdom and moral guidance of the Pharisees and their Talmud, they must accept the right of their greatest ancient sages to violate children. To this hour, no synod of Judaism has repudiated their vile practice.

    SEX WITH A “MINOR” IS PERMITTED

    What exactly did these sages say?

    The Pharisees justified child rape by explaining that a boy of nine years was not a “man”. Thus they exempted him from God’s Mosaic Law:

    “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” (Leviticus. 18:22)

    One passage in the Talmud gives permission for a woman who molested her young son to marry a high priest. It concludes,

    “All agree that the connection of a boy aged nine years and a day is a real connection; whilst that of one less than eight years is not.” 5

    Because a boy under 9 is sexually immature, he can’t “throw guilt” on the active offender, morally or legally. 6

    Presumably, the majority of little Jewish boys get raped before they are nine by Rabbis. They get caught doing this constantly.

    And so do the Zionist Roman Catholic priests

    A woman could molest a young boy without questions of morality even being raised:

    “…the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act.” 7

    The JEWISH Talmud also says,

    “A male aged nine years and a day who cohabits with his deceased brother’s wife acquires her (as wife).” 8

    Clearly, the JEWISH Talmud teaches that a woman is permitted to marry and have sex with a nine year old boy.

    5 Sanhedrin 69b.
    6 Sanhedrin 55a.
    7 Footnote 1 to Kethuboth 11b.
    8 Sanhedrin 55b.

    SEX AT THREE & ONE DAY

    In contrast to Simeon ben Yohai’s dictum that sex with a little girl is permitted under the age of three years, the general teaching of the Talmud is that the rabbi must wait until a day after her third birthday. She could be taken in marriage simply by the act of rape.

    R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his. (Sanhedrin. 55b)
    
    A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation. . . .(Yeb. 57b)
    
    A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her she becomes his. (Sanhedrin. 69a, 69b, also discussed in Yebamoth. 60b)
    
    It was taught: R. Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest, for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phineas (who was priest, the footnote says) surely was with them. (Yebamoth. 60b)
    
    [The Talmud says such three year and a day old girls are] . . . fit for cohabitation. . . But all women children, that have not known man by lying with him, it must be concluded that Scripture speaks of one who is fit for cohabitation. (Footnote to Yebamoth. 60b)
    

    The example of Phineas, a priest, himself marrying an underage virgin of three years is considered by the Talmud as proof that such infants are “fit for cohabitation.”

    The Talmud teaches that an adult woman’s molestation of a nine year old boy is “not a sexual act” and cannot “throw guilt” upon her because the little boy is not truly a “man.” 9

    But they use opposite logic to sanction rape of little girls aged three years and one day: Such infants they count as “women,” sexually mature and fully responsible to comply with the requirements of marriage.

    The Talmud footnotes 3 and 4 to Sanhedrin 55a clearly tell us when the rabbis considered a boy and girl sexually mature and thus ready for marriage.

    “At nine years a male attains sexual matureness… The sexual matureness of woman is reached at the age of three.”

    NO RIGHTS FOR CHILD VICTIMS

    The Pharisees were hardly ignorant of the trauma felt by molested children. To complicate redress, the Talmud says a rape victim must wait until she was of age before there would be any possibility of restitution. She must prove that she lived and would live as a devoted Jewess, and she must protest the loss of her virginity on the very hour she comes of age.

    “As soon as she was of age one hour and did not protest she cannot protest anymore.” 10

    The Talmud defends these strict measures as necessary to forestall the possibility of a Gentile child bride rebelling against Judaism and spending the damages awarded to her as a heathen – an unthinkable blasphemy! But the rights of the little girl were really of no great consequence, for,

    “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this (three years and a day) it is as if one put the finger into the eye.” The footnote says that as “tears come to the eye again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.” 11

    In most cases, the Talmud affirms the innocence of male and female victims of pedophilia. Defenders of the Talmud claim this proves the Talmud’s amazing moral advancement and benevolence toward children; they say it contrasts favorably with “primitive” societies where the child would have been stoned along with the adult perpetrator.

    Actually, the rabbis, from self-protection, were intent on proving the innocence of both parties involved in pedophilia: the child, but more importantly, the pedophile. They stripped a little boy of his right to “throw guilt” on his assailant and demanded complicity in sex from a little girl. By thus providing no significant moral or legal recourse for the child, the Talmud clearly reveals whose side it is on: the raping rabbi.

    PEDOPHILIA WIDESPREAD

    Child rape was practiced in the highest circles of Judaism. This is illustrated from Yebamoth. 60b:

    There was a certain town in the land of Israel the legitimacy of whose inhabitants was disputed, and Rabbi sent R. Romanos who conducted an inquiry and found in it the daughter of a proselyte who was under the age of three years and one day, and Rabbi declared her eligible to live with a priest.
    

    The footnote says that she was “married to a priest” and the rabbi simply permitted her to live with her husband, thus upholding “halakah” as well as the dictum of Simeon ben Yohai,

    “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest.” 12

    These child brides were expected to submit willingly to sex. Yebamoth. 12b confirms that under eleven years and one day a little girl is not permitted to use a contraceptive but

    “must carry on her marital intercourse in the usual manner.”

    In Sanhedrin 76b a blessing is given to the man who marries off his children before they reach the age of puberty, with a contrasting curse on anyone who waits longer. In fact, failure to have married off one’s daughter by the time she is 12-1/2, the Talmud says, is as bad as one who “returns a lost article to a Cuthean” (Gentile) – a deed for which “the Lord will not spare him.” 13 This passage says:

    “… it is meritorious to marry off one’s children whilst minors.”

    The mind reels at the damage to the untold numbers of girls who were sexually abused within Judaism during the heyday of pedophilia. Such child abuse, definitely practiced in the second century, continued, at least in Babylon, for another 900 years.

    A FASCINATION WITH SEX

    Perusing the Talmud, one is overwhelmed with the recurrent preoccupation with sex, especially by the most eminent rabbis. Dozens of illustrations could be presented to illustrate the delight of the Pharisees to discuss sex and quibble over its minutest details.

    The rabbis endorsing child sex undoubtedly practiced what they preached. Yet to this hour, their words are revered. Simeon ben Yohai is honoured by Orthodox Jews as one of the very greatest sages and spiritual lights the world has ever known. A member of the earliest “Tannaim,” rabbis most influential in creating the Talmud, he carries more authority to observant Jews than Moses.

    Well, if nothing else, at least it’s nice to see someone use the words “witch hunt” and then follow them up with a mention of “Salem”, rather than following them up with the name “Joe McCarthy”.

    Sheesh! I can’t even remember the last time the expression “witch hunt” actually pertained to hunting witches rather than further smearing the reputation of dead American patriot! I gotta say, that was kinda refreshing in a way.

  3. I do not recall ever hearing of the ‘casting couch’ until just recently when all this Weinstein stuff started coming to the fore front. I do know that over the years there would be an up and coming actor or actress that was absolutely wonderful. Just about the time it seemed they were poised to make their big break they would disappear into the Hollywood version of the computer cloud. You knew they were there but they never had any earth shattering roles in the entertainment industry. Then there would be those actors and actresses that were nothing but marginal at best and all of a sudden hit the ‘big time.’ Their names and faces were every where. They could not receive enough attention or be in enough acting roles or receive enough awards or be in People magazine enough. I always suspected that the Hollywood “culture” chose those who would succeed and chose those who would fail. All of this corruption has now come to light with the outing of Weinstein and an actor’s or actress’s success depends on their ability to perform on the “casting couch!” Wow, what a bunch of evil hypocrites.

  4. The casting couch is the stuff of “legends” for decades.

    Dylan Farrow, who was adopted by Woody and Mia Farrow, said he sexually abused her when she was 7 years old:

    Mariel Hemingway said Woody tried to seduce her when she was a teenager:

    And let us also never forget what Woody said on May 18, 2010:

    “It would be good…if (Obama) could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly. I am pleased with Obama. I think he is brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.”

      I just now read your blog bit about Dylan Farrow. I had not heard any of that before. And I wasn’t aware of that “Obama as dictator” stuff either.

      I have always thought Woody Allen’s ‘LOVE AND DEATH’ is one of the very funniest movies ever made. I’ve owned it for decades. Not sure I’ll ever be able to watch it again. These things definitely shine a new and disturbing light on Woody Allen for me.

  5. Woody Allen, another unscrupulous bastard, owns a place in the OFFENDER’S rank for a long time, worse yet done under his own roof. How ironic, Ronan Farrow, his own son, denouncing scum bag Weinstein, good way to get at his own father, pay back is sweet. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.

    • I think, as far as Hollywood is concerned, that Woody Allen helped develop the now normal model of making fun of the Goyim and having them laugh at themselves. By playing the neurotic loser who was actually an accomplished manipulator.

      If you look at Adam Sandler and Sarah Silverman you’ll see him. That’s their whole thing, they are just not as good at it as Allen. Their hatred comes through loud and clear. They are truly “racist”.

      Being racist may help explain their fascination with Obongo. Of course, a better explanation may be that they are Jewish and the New World Odor is controlled by them.

    Holy cow! Birds of a feather stick together.

    Why do birds of a feather stick together?

    Some male birds are better at attracting females if they gather with close male kin, than in the company of distant relatives. The findings provide an intriguing account of why individuals help each other, especially when cooperating can be costly.

  11. Actresses have complained about the casting couch since the 50’s or thereabouts. Anyone that believes anything from Woody’s mouth should reconsider. His behavior was no secret either. But he had such huge successes early on, people turned their heads. I think he empowered the others for their misbehavior. It all is sickening.
