GQ magazine: It’s your civic duty to ruin Thanksgiving by bringing up Trump

maga

I’m guessing this is meant as satire. Then again, with TDS-infected libtards, you never know.

Happy Thanksgiving!

From the author, Joe Berkowitz, at GQ: It’s late-November 2017, and you know what that means: Every man you’ve ever seen on TV for any reason has just been unmasked as a woman-hating sewer ghoul. Also, it’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving—for America!

Thanksgiving is a celebration of community and gratitude, where we reconvene in our nostalgia-drenched hometowns and perform time-honored traditions such as almost sleeping with your high school crush and going around the table to say what you’re most thankful for and where you were on 9/11. Last year’s Thanksgiving was a difficult time for most Americans—roughly 65.8 million of us. The election was still a fresh wound. Trump had begun assembling his Dr. Caligari cabinet of White House monsters, each one a direct fuck-you to some beloved ideal. There was the EPA chief who doesn’t believe in climate change, the labor secretary who opposed minimum wage increases, the flagrantly Islamophobic National Security Adviser who might just be a foreign agent, and at the helm of it all, a man who speaks almost exclusively in racist dog whistles and “locker room talk.” Thanksgiving was a cathartic vent sesh for liberals with like-minded families, and a painful twist of the knife for those without.

I was lucky, kind of. Both my family and my wife’s family were Hillary supporters. But we spent Thanksgiving 2016 at my parents’ house in Asheville, North Carolina—a city which, despite its Portlandia-esque sensibilities, was nestled in deep red territory. Walking around downtown, I saw more sentient MAGA hats in a few hours than I had in three long post-election weeks in New York. Right away, my dad informed me that some Trump supporter friends would be joining our Thanksgiving dinner. He assured me he’d politely asked them not to talk politics, and encouraged me to follow suit. I spent Thanksgiving dinner trying to guess which guests were the ones who voted for Trump, like the most embarrassing Agatha Christie mystery of all time. This armistice dinner went surprisingly smoothly, thanks to the politics ban and enough whiskey to ride out a prohibition crisis. It helped that these people were not my family. Whatever qualms I had with them outside of this holodeck simulation of a normal dinner would never come to a head, since we had no reason to be in regular contact. Also, Trump had not actually taken office yet.

Last year, Trump supporters could still make a case for impending change. Perhaps Donald would go through a molting phase, shedding his most intolerant and unstable parts like clumps of dead lizard skin. Instead, if anything, his reptilian hide got doused in nuclear waste and he has since Godzilla’d all over America’s purple mountain majesties. Anyone hoping for peace last Thanksgiving was rewarded with constant chaos, “very fine” Nazis marching in the streets, and a flame war with North Korea unfolding entirely over Twitter, which may or may not end in Armageddon.

This year, if you’re headed home to a household that still thinks a sex-offending game show host in rapid cognitive decline was the best choice for a president, it is your civic duty to filibuster Thanksgiving.

Trump has spent the entire year performing one long, clumsy touchdown dance atop the wreckage of America’s former norms and values. He turned the presidency into a haberdashery. He made nepotism a core hiring strategy. He attacked a civil rights leader during Martin Luther King Day. He politicized a Boy Scout jamboree. Any parents still riding the Trump Train at this point have thereby signaled that nothing is sacred. It is time to follow their example. They can’t stand idly by while President Deals tramples every other American tradition and yet somehow expect that Thanksgiving will be normal too. If every other moment of this year is going to be drastically out of whack, nobody should get to pretend that everything is normal for one meal just because that’s what the pilgrims would have done.

Here are a few suggestions for how to ruin Thanksgiving, arranged by ascending order of righteous fury:

Don’t show up. For some parents, your absence will speak louder than any sodden arguments over the density of pumpkin pie. If you can’t even look them in the eye, they’ll know you mean business. Besides, Friendsgiving rules.

Show up and be kind of an asshole. No hugs; only stiff, formal handshakes. During the football game, talk about police brutality nonstop. Take any opportunity to emphasize just how much Bruce Springsteen and the entire E Street band loathes Trump. Come out as an aspiring professional DJ.

Scorched Earth. Not even a handshake; just stare, disgustedly, at their outstretched arms. Build a wall out of mashed potatoes. During the football game, order 10 Papa John’s pizzas—the official foodstuff of the alt right—and use them as pie charts to demonstrate who benefits most from the GOP tax plan. Refuse to be alone in a room with your mom, citing the Mike Pence rule. Call your parents by a Donald Trump nickname of your choosing—perhaps Little Rocket Mom or Liddle’ Dad. Insist on setting a place for Robert Mueller, the way Jews do for Elijah on Passover. Wear a coal miner hat for solidarity. Punch a cornucopia right in the mouth.

Of course, this is about more than just spite—as satisfying as spite can be in these trying times. This is about potentially chipping away at the ~35 percent of un-budging Trump supporters. Sure, some of them are fully on board with every inexplicable decision, but others may be swayable. They are Fox News devotees who have simply internalized the message that all negative news about Trump is fake news. They know the president is unpopular, but they think his unpopularity is the strict province of haters and losers. It might be different when it’s their own child—who probably isn’t an Antifa supersoldier and who definitely doesn’t have loser genes—weighing in with cold hard facts. Having a son or daughter loathe everything you’ve become is easier long distance; it’s another thing when that kid is staring turkey-carving daggers at you from across the table.

Students blast Steve Martin’s King Tut skit as “racist”

Special snowflakes with special demands need to take a chill pill. I bet these students are a BLAST during Thanksgiving dinner.

From NY Post: ComedianSteve Martin’s famous portrayal of King Tut on “Saturday Night Live” has suddenly come under fire by students at an ultra-liberal college in Oregon.

Students in a humanities class at Reed College blasted the inclusion of the ancient skit in their coursework, branding it a vile example of cultural appropriation — as they demanded that it be removed entirely.

“That’s like somebody … making a song just littered with the n-word everywhere,” a member of Reedies Against Racism told the student newspaper, according to The Atlantic.

The student called the performance, which includes African-Americans clad in faux ancient Egyptian attire, as racist. “The gold face of the saxophone dancer leaving its tomb is an exhibition of blackface,” the incensed student told The Atlantic.

In the skit, which Martin created in 1978, he performs a goofy song, “King Tut,” meant to satirize a Tutankhamun exhibit touring the US from 1976 to 1979, and to assail the commercialization of Egyptian culture.

Freshmen taking Humanities 110, which is designed for students “to engage in original, open-ended, critical inquiry,” said they should not be forced to take the required course until different coursework is offered.

Members of RAR, which was created to mourn the deaths of blacks at the hands of police nationwide, say Hum 110 is all about oppression. “We believe that the first lesson that freshmen should learn about Hum 110 is that it perpetuates white supremacy—by centering ‘whiteness’ as the only required class at Reed,” according to a RAR statement provided to all new freshmen.

Hum 110 “feels like a cruel test for students of color,” one leader said on public radio, according to the mag. “It traumatized my peers.”

Reed Professor Lucía Martínez Valdivia, who identifies herself as a gay mixed-race woman, wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post on her experiences with the protesters.

“The right to speak freely is not the same as the right to rob others of their voices,” she wrote. “Some colleagues, including people of color, immigrants and those without tenure, found it impossible to work under these conditions.

“The signs intimidated faculty into silence, just as intended,” wrote Martínez Valdivia, who said she has suffered from a “lack of sleep, nausea, loss of appetite, inability to focus.”

The school has reportedly been trying to revise its course to address RAR’s concerns, but students have stopped showing up to meetings designed to do so, according to the Washington Examiner.

In the “SNL” skit, Martin said he thought the boy king exhibit was “a national disgrace the way we have commercialized it with trinkets and toys, T-shirts and posters.”

“Now, if I’d known they’d line up just to see you, I’d trade in all my money and bought me a museum. (King Tut) buried with a donkey (Funky Tut) He’s my favorite honky!” he and his band sang.

Thanksgiving is a religious holiday to thank God, not another occasion for white guilt

Thanksgiving is one of the most beloved holidays in America.

But in the hands of “progressives,” public schools and the MSM, Thanksgiving has long become yet another occasion for white guilt. If you want an illustration, see my 2010 post, “Thanksgiving card from my liberal friend“.

But did you know that unlike other secular holidays like Labor Day or the Fourth of July, the Thanksgiving that you think is a secular holiday is actually a national holiday that is explicitly religious in nature?

As shown in the quotes below, Thanksgiving was instituted as a day to thank God for the many blessings He has bestowed on America.

In 1789, in his first year in office, President George Washington called for a day of Thanksgiving because —

“it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.”

In 1815, President James Madison issued a proclamation for “a day of thanksgiving and of devout acknowledgments to Almighty God for His great goodness.” After Madison, however, Thanksgiving reverted to a regional celebration in New England for 48 years.

In a proclamation in the midst of the Civil War on October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official national holiday. Here is the full text of his proclamation:

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.

“In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

“Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.

“No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

“It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.

“In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

“Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.”

Last year, Americans undertook the most divisive presidential election in our lifetime, only to see the electoral divisiveness metastasize into an undeclared civil war of remitting viciousness, even death threats against a duly elected President and his supporters.

On this Thanksgiving, to echo the words of Lincoln at the conclusion of the Civil War, we,

with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.”

We of the Fellowship of the Minds also take this occasion to thank all our readers and especially our regular commenters who contribute so much to this little blog with their intelligence and righteous outrage.

Psalm 100

A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord, with gladness;
come before Him with joyful song.
Know that the Lord, is God,
He made us, we belong to Him,
we are His people, the flock He shepherds.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name;
good indeed is the Lord,
His mercy endures forever,
His faithfulness lasts through every generation.

God bless you, and may God bless America,

Homeless people defecating on LA streets fuels horror hepatitis outbreak

skid_row

Great job demorats!

From Fox News: An outbreak of hepatitis A is spreading through Los Angeles County after leaping from a large homeless contingent in San Diego, threatening thousands of people and fueling criticism that local officials have not done enough to contain the deadly liver disease.

Hundreds of cases have turned up in southern California as well as Michigan — but conditions in Los Angeles, where roughly 50,000 people live on the streets, have prompted deeper concerns.

Reports compiled by volunteer organizations have faulted city officials for not providing enough accessible toilets as the homeless population sharply increased by 23 percent this year.

In a prescient warning, a June 2017 report by a collection of nonprofits called the LA Central Providers Collaborative sounded the alarm about crowding and living conditions on Skid Row, citing the city’s own predictions about the increased risk for hepatitis A and other diseases.

“One would think that Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world, would exceed these minimal standards. However, this Audit finds that in Skid Row, Los Angeles fails to meet even the standards for a refugee camp,” the report said. “During overnight hours, there are only nine public toilets available for 1,777 unsheltered homeless people on Skid Row, and these toilets are largely inaccessible.”

The report noted that United Nations’ refugee camp standards are one toilet for every 20 people.

Fast-forward to September, and the county declared an outbreak affecting homeless people and illicit drug users. The disease also is rising among gay and bisexual men, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health noted in a Nov. 2 advisory.

Los Angeles currently has 31 hepatitis cases – 15 among the homeless and 16 gay men.

Toilet access is a chief concern, as the disease can be contracted by ingesting or touching anything contaminated with infected feces. Homeless individuals without bathroom access defecating on the streets spreads the disease. 

Seventeen miles away is the community of Venice, a trendy beachside haven made famous by a young Arnold Schwarzenegger who once lifted weights in a makeshift gym set up along a boardwalk. The homeless liked the area, too, and the population has grown to about 1,000. The area has nine toilet stalls, none which are open at night.

Los Angeles County, meanwhile, has 42,828 homeless living on the streets, which swells to more than 50,000 during the day when many leave overnight shelters. Most are within the city of Los Angeles, which has a total of 2,800 toilets and 800 urinals located in parks that are open during daylight hours.

News Magazine that sold for one dollar compares Trump to Manson

BUSINESS INSIDER:
Newsweek Sells For $1 To Stereo Equipment Mogul Sidney Harman


WND – NEWSWEEK COMPARES TRUMP TO SERIAL KILLER CHARLES MANSON

Says president forms similar ‘bond with followers’ who feel ‘marginalized or alienated’

The leftist magazine Newsweek took its anti-Trump hysteria to a whole new level, comparing the president to deranged serial killer Charles Manson and citing a psychoanalyst who claims the two have employed similar language to rally their followers…


The article at WND.com is well worth your time to read in full at http://www.wnd.com/2017/11/newsweek-compares-trump-to-serial-killer-charles-manson/#xdOGKqIw4AzUpT4u.99

But for now, let’s just cut to some responses Newsweek received when they posted their smear on Twitter:


…Newsweek also tweeted its Manson-Trump story Monday, and the magazine was flooded with condemnation.
Some comments included:

  • “Is Newsweek published by the DNC now? I’ll look back on this nonsense when POTUS Trump is reelected in 2020.” – Elder Lansing
  • “Newsweek isn’t even a good birdcage liner!” – Mikie Kazan
  • “Delete your account, seek professional help & reconsider your life choices.” – Rita Panahi
  • “This is what desperation from the left looks like …” – Samantha S Jones
  • “Keep it up and you won’t exist at all anymore.” – Jeremy
  • “Unbelievable, but you want the public to trust you. Smell what you’re shoveling.” – SM Macias
  • “Excuse me! What an insult to President Trump and his supporters! You should be ashamed of yourselves, but I don’t think ashamed is in your vocabulary!” – Wanda Miller
  • “The National Enquirer is embarrassed by your low ‘journalistic’ standards @Newsweek.” – Junkyard Dogs
  • “Newsweek is no longer journalism. It is sensationalist propaganda.” – One Voice for MAGA
  • “Seems to me Obama is more like Charlie than Trump. Obama was a smooth talker who spoke a bunch of cr-p and the media and the sheepeople ate it up without questioning it, just like Charlie did with his followers. Charlie wanted a race war and Obama set race relations back 40 years.” – H. C. C.
  • “Careful, your partisan liberal undies are showing.” – Brian J. Naslund
  • “CNN: We’re going to publish the biggest sh!t stories of the decade. Newsweek: Hold my gender binary drink and watch this.” – Sarcastic Conservative

John McCain’s wandering orthopedic boot

Remember this pic of Sen. John McCain on November 6, 2017, wearing an orthopedic or walking boot on his right foot?

We are told he needed the boot because of a “minor tear” in his right Achilles’ tendon.

Coincidentally, Hillary Clinton also has an orthopedic boot on her right foot, ostensibly because she had broken her right foot’s big toe when she “ran downstairs in heels and fell backward”.

That gave rise to speculations on the Alternative Media that McCain’s and Hillary’s boots are not for their respective torn Achilles’ tendon and broken big toe. They have those walking boots on to conceal their ankle monitors. See “Are Hillary’s and John McCain’s orthopedic boots actually ankle bracelets?

This morning, McCain tweeted a pic of himself and his wife, Cindy, which lends credence to that conspiracy theory.

His orthopedic boot in now on his left foot! LOL

Here are side-by-side pics of McCain’s wandering boot:

By the way, the above right picture is not “mirrored” or flipped because it correctly shows the buttons on the right side of McCain’s jacket, consistent with men’s jackets.

Nor is the picture of McCain and his wife “mirrored” or flipped because it shows Cindy’s wedding ring on her left hand (as it should), and the buttons on the right side of McCain’s shirt.

Conclusion: Between November 6 and November 22, John McCain switched his walking boot from his right foot to his left foot.

That’s the problem with lying — you have to remember and keep straight your lies.

Movie producer tells man groped by Kevin Spacey: ‘You should be flattered he’s attracted to you’

For decades, Hollywood had turned a blind eye to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s and others’ sexual abuse and rape of women, as well as of children — a scandal that still needs to be broken into the open.

Worse still, the victims are actually told they should be grateful.

That’s what happened to a sound mixer and boom operator named Joshua Chavez in 2012 — he was told by a movie producer to be grateful that actor Kevin Spacey found him attractive enough as to grope his penis.

At the time, Chavez was 26 and Spacey was 53 years old.

Kevin Spacey grabs a young male’s butt

Michael Snyder, the well-known blogger of The End of the American Dream (now renamed The American Dream), has a “very close personal friend” who knows Chavez “extremely well” and helped Chavez to contact Snyder with his story. Snyder writes:

“I am satisfied with the documentation that Chavez provided for this story, and I very much trust the good friend that connected the two of us.”

Below is Joshua Chavez’ account, which Snyder wants us to help get out “to the rest of the world”. The bold emphasis is Chavez’s; the red-color emphasis is mine:

My name is Joshua Chavez and in 2007 I entered into the film industry where I began a lucrative business as a sound mixer. I didn’t start as one; I had to work my way up from a PA, sound utility, boom operator and then mixer. In 2012 I was asked to work for a certain sound mixer on three short films Kevin Spacey and his company trigger street productions was doing as the boom operator. Now a sound mixer is the head of the sound department and the boom operator is just below him and is responsible for picking up every line spoken by the actor or actress with a high-powered microphone. The first short film we worked on was called “The Ventriloquist” which was shot on March 22st and 23nd, the second short film was called “Spirit of a Denture” shot on March 26th and 27th, and then third short we shot was on April 1st and 2nd and that was called “Envelope”.

These three short films were all a part of a contest put on between trigger street productions and Jameson Whiskey called Jameson first shot. Writers from all over the world would send in their scripts for a chance to direct their own script and have it fully funded with Kevin Spacey as the main actor. The first day on set was at the promenade off of Figueroa St. in highland park LA. The first day of principal photography was the same as all the rest of the projects I’d been a part of. It was also uneventful considering what the rest of the days were going to be like working so close with Kevin Spacey. That first day I had met him he didn’t pay much attention to me. That is very normal for an A list actor towards a boom operator. I had introduced myself, put a lav (small hidden mic) on him a couple times and also boomed his scenes. Everything was very normal, nothing out of the ordinary. At that point in time, I had no idea Kevin was gay or attracted to me.

Day two was a whole different story though; the moment he got to set he began his relentless pursuit for me. I was sitting next to craft service (a table filled with all the snacks you could possibly imagine) and I noticed him pull up in a vehicle, get out, notice me and walk straight for me. I wasn’t sure he was looking at me or walking towards me for that matter but he was, he literally walked past every person on set, put out his hand in my direct and shook my hand with a big smile on his face and said “good morning Joshua, its good to see you back today” I was shocked and really confused. Kevin Spacey walked past every person on set to come say good morning to me, and he remembered my name… WHAT?! I didn’t realize his intentions at the moment so I felt really special, something like that had never happened to me before. The rest of the day was also normal, but Kevin would speak to me every now and then and he also sat down and had lunch with my sound mixer and myself.

The end of the first project had passed and the second short film was now underway, “Spirit of Denture”. The location we were filming at was called Soler Dental off of Los Feliz Blvd. in Los Angeles. It was a small dental office, which meant we were all in very close proximity to each other. One of the scenes in the dental office was Kevin’s character a Dentist with an active imagination looking out of his sliding glass window through binoculars. Now since the space was very small, and the cameras were behind him, I had to stand on a counter table that lined the wall right next to the sliding glass door. It was the only spot I could be in to properly get his lines without my reflection being seen by the cameras in the sliding glass door Kevin was standing in front of. There are many takes in order to get one scene and during this scene was when all of the real sexual assaults began to happen and from then on after. My first encounter with him during this scene was when the director yelled cut. I dropped my boom from over my head and sat down on the counter to rest while the camera changed some lenses for the next shot. Kevin was directly in front of me; he turned to me and asked me what I thought about his acting during that scene.

It was actually a funny question because why would my opinion matter to an A list actor. Regardless I politely answered the question “Yes, it was a good scene” and smiled, he then said “thank you” and lightly put his hand on my thigh. It was so quick and light that it didn’t really sound any alarms, however I didn’t feel comfortable with it. Since I was sitting on the counter and he was standing up, my thigh was about waist height to him. So I kind of ignored it and continued on. Well that was not the end of it, at the end of the next shot, he turned to me again and asked me the same question again, I replied the same, I mean it’s not like I was going say “Kevin, that was actually horrible… you need to stop acting and become a mime”! No, I’d be fired on the spot!

So I said it was great, he smiled again and then put his hand back onto my thigh, but this time it was for a very long period of time. It was so long that I started to move my thigh in hope he would take it off. He smiled and turned away. Now that time about every fiber in my body was screaming… that was not normal and there is something horribly wrong! Well the third time it happened yet again but this time he grabbed my upper thigh, took his pinky and rubbed my junk. “Woe, I am not comfortable with that, sorry but I’m not attracted to men.” He took his hand off my upper thigh as if what I said didn’t even phase him, smiled at me and walked away. I was absolutely dumbfounded and shocked. I remember immediately going back to the mixer who I was working with and told him what had happened; he was surprised but shrugged it off.

To be completely honest and transparent I shrugged it off as well. I told him I wasn’t into guys and I figured he got the hint but he didn’t, if anything it made me an even larger target for him. I had many encounters with him after that and each one made me more and more uncomfortable. Other individuals began to notice it on set, including the 2nd AD Shelly West who made comments on his actions in an email afterward and again just recently explaining in detail what she noticed on set. In an attempt to let production know these things were happening to me, I told one of the producers about the sexual assaults I was receiving from Kevin and the over all response was “you should be flattered Kevin Spacey is attracted to you”.

This is the thing, they all had the same worry and fear I had, being fired or blacklisted from the industry for being a problem on set. It was Kevin Spacey’s Production Company, and he was the main actor. The reason why I’m even telling my story right now is because people need to know these aren’t just allegations towards him, they aren’t made up, and it’s happened to probably hundreds maybe even thousands of young men on set. Human Resources is not a department on the call sheet, and pretty much every person there is self employed and contracted out for just that gig. During each production, if you are nice, work hard, don’t cause problems and know what you are doing, you’ll be rehired by someone that goes on to another project; tainting your name on set will put you on unemployment. So the sexual advances went on and on for the duration of the projects. There was one instance where I was sitting in a chair on set waiting for the next scene to be set up, Kevin walked past me, stopped and asked me what I was doing after wrap that night? He then proceeded to ask me if I wanted to go and get high with him at his house, just the two of us. With an uncomfortable laugh I said “you’re funny” pretending he was joking and walked away. I was once putting a lav on him for a scene and while I was doing it, he began to sexually rub my shoulders and preceded to tell me I have beautiful eyes.

The list goes on and on. After I finished those projects I didn’t feel like it affected me all that much, however in the past five years, I’ve told probably a hundred of people my encounter with him. I’ve never watched a single project that he’s been in since. I refused to watch house of cards because I didn’t want to support him. I guess I didn’t quite realize the scarring I received from him until my girl at the time pointed out I talked about it a lot.

Looking back, I should have done something about it, came out with it publicly or sued him in hopes he wouldn’t do it to someone else. One thing I would like to say is, Kevin I forgive you for what you did to me all those years back, but you have to stop what you’re doing and repent. If it scarred a guy that’s 26 like I was and me not even know it, what do you think it has done to all the little boys you’ve done it to. You have to repent for your sins and look to Jesus for change because you may not pay for what you’ve done in this life, but you sure will in front of the white throne judgment with a packed court house of witnesses coming against you.

In conclusion, my story is just one of many who have been assaulted by him, I’ve encountered guys that have had far worse experiences with him than myself. This stuff has to stop, power is being used for control and evil desires. We all need to speak up as soon as it happens, I did not do the right thing and stand up for myself. I was weak minded at the time and it took a news story about a 14 year old boy and Jesus for me to say enough is enough. I urge every single person in the industry to come out with your story, and bring hard evidence against him or her. What ever it takes to bring mere allegations into hard facts! Some of you have text messages, emails, video’s, eye witnesses, come out with them and bring a total stop to this gross abuse of power and control.
