Neo-con Bill Kristol’s mask comes off; admits he’s socialist & liberal

There is a fumigation — a disinfection of America — going on.

Can you feel it?:

  • Every day, creeps like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose are being outed and banished from Hollywood and the MSM.
  • Human traffickers and pedophiles are being arrested at a number that dwarfs the years of Obama.
  • Enraged by the election of Donald John Trump to the presidency, the Left are apoplectic and are abandoning all pretenses. Many have stripped off their masks, revealing their true faces, like “comedienne” Kathy Griffin when she held a mock-up of President Trump’s decapitated head.

It’s like our opponents have taken the truth serum: they just can’t help outing themselves.

The latest to out himself is the neo, i.e., faux conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard — the never Trumper who:

Yesterday, Kristol finally stripped off his mask, admitting that he’s a socialist and a liberal. He tweeted:

Kristol’s fellow liberals certainly recognize one of their own and greeted his tweet with elation. Some examples:

Bongmaster: “Embrace it Bill. Embrace humanity.”

NYC118: “Come into the light!”

Michael Rowland: “I didn’t agree with you about basically anything until 2016. Now I follow your stuff constantly.”

The Man in Black: “Welcome to the world of all Democrats that have started following you on Twitter since Orange Caligula became the GOP nominee.”

But the choicest reactions to Kristol’s self-unmasking are from the Deplorables:

Pol0tix: “You are becoming the jackass we always suspected you really were!”

Tj Kansler: “You’ve lost your mind and your moral compass.”

American Real News: “Kristol is a prototypical RINO. They believe in nothing so they fall for everything.”

Mamie Love: “The entire right has rejected you, an inauthentic neocon, so you now have to play to the left to keep your taxpayer-funded country club lifestyle intact.”

Noni: “What’s happening is that Trump’s election is exposing all your Globalist freaks who were pretending to be Conservatives; this election has brought out the inner Loon of you & your NeverTrumper buddies.”

Tim Parton: “You’ve never been for the people, traitor.”

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.

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.

Women of SNL release statement in support of Al Franken

al franken

Al Franken: A devoted and dedicated family man…

Y‘all may regret that decision, ladies.

From Entertainment Weekly: Women who worked with Al Franken on Saturday Night Live are stepping out to support him — 36 “SNL Women,” to be exact.

The comic-turned-senator, who spent a total of 15 years on the series as a writer and performer, faced sexual misconduct accusations by KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden last week, who claimed Franken groped her and kissed her without consent during a USO tour in 2006, and even released a photo of Franken appearing to be grabbing her breasts while she was sleeping. Franken has since apologized and Tweeden accepted it, and now, his former colleagues are speaking out in solidarity with him.

“We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on Saturday Night Live (SNL),” begins a statement signed by the 36 women, including Not Ready for Prime Time Players Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman. “What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public. In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant. That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.”

Last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live didn’t exactly go easy on Franken. “Now, I know this photo looks bad, but remember — it also is bad,” Colin Jost quipped during Weekend Update, later adding, “Sure, this was taken before Franken ran for public office, but it was also taken after he was a sophomore in high school. It’s pretty hard to be like, ‘Oh, come on, he didn’t know anything — he was only 55.’”

I believe the womyn supporting Franken wrote this letter before pictures surfaced of Franken groping Arianna Huffington during a photo shoot. Oops…

Sexgate: CBS & PBS fired Charlie Rose after 8 women accused him of sexual misconduct, incl. walking around naked

I knew it!

Years ago, when I first saw Charlie Rose on PBS, before he became CBS This Morning‘s anchor, I took an instant visceral dislike of him, not because of his political ideology (of which I knew little), but because I found his faux sincerity creepy.

Yesterday, The Washington Post reports that eight women told the newspaper that Charlie Rose had made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.

The women, who ranged in age from 21 to 27 at the time of Rose’s lewd behaviors, were either employees or aspired to work for Rose at PBS’s Charlie Rose show. The incidents took place from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. Rose is 75, which means he was 69 years old in 2011.

According to the Washington Post, “rumors about Rose’s behavior have circulated for years.

Jeremy Derard reports for Deadline (via MSN), Nov. 20, 2017:

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.”

Below is Rose’s statement in response to the women’s accusations:

“In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues.

It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.

I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

Update:

CBS News has fired Charlie Rose; PBS also parted ways with Rose shortly after the CBS decision.

Today, Nov. 21, CBS News executives sent staffers an email memo, which was obtained by Fox News. The memo says:

“A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately.

This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program.

Despite Charlie’s important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace — a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place….

CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last. Our credibility in that reporting requires credibility managing basic standards of behavior. That is why we have taken these actions….”

Sexgate fallout: Jeffrey Tambor leaves “Transparent” after sexual harassment allegations

jeffrey tambor

Innocent man Jeffrey, as Maura, quitting his role to due a “politicized” atmosphere

If the claims are untrue, then why is he quitting his award-winning gig? Innocent people with the monetary resources would fight an ugly lie.

Won’t affect me at all though; I have no use for this Amazon show.

From TMZ: Jeffrey Tambor is quitting the show “Transparent” — which he starred in as the lead role for years (as a transgender character) — after sexual harassment allegations were made against him.

Tambor released a statement to Deadline Sunday saying playing the transgender character, Maura Pfefferman, had been an honor … but that the show clearly isn’t what he signed up for four years ago.

He added … “I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.

As we reported … Tambor faced at least 2 allegations of sexual harassment that we know of. He was recently accused by a transgender co-star of making lewd, sexually suggestive remarks … and even allegedly pressing up against her in a suggestive manner. 

Tambor denied those allegations, as well as the ones made against him by a former assistant on the show. Still, Amazon launched an investigation into the matter … even though they were considering writing him out the show before all this.

Looks like he beat ’em to it.

Backtracking to save her feminazi status: Lena Dunham apologizes for defending accused rapist

lena dunham on toilet

Lena Dunham: Learning to live and die by her politics

Too little, too late Lena. Course backtracking is par for the course of one who admitted to experimenting with her six-year younger sister’s vagina.

From NY Post: Lena Dunham has reversed course, and apologized for her initial defense of Murray Miller, the “Girls” writer accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau.

When news of the accusations broke on Friday, Dunham — and “Girls” co-showrunner Jenni Konner — issued a statement standing by Miller. “While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year,” they said in a statement.

But her defense of Miller provoked backlash on social media, with many pointing to an August tweet of Dunham’s, where she wrote: “Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don’t lie about: rape.

Wrote Asia Argento, “You wrote me an email of support a few weeks ago, and now you defend a rapist? WTF @lenadunham?”

In a lengthy statement posted Saturday on Twitter, Dunham apologized for her initial defense of Murray. “Every woman who comes forward deserves to be heard, fully and completely, and our relationship with the accused should not be part of the calculation anyone makes when examining her case,” she wrote.

Perrineau has filed a police report accusing Miller of sexual assault, and the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the case. Miller, through his lawyer, has denied the allegations. News of the assault was first reported by The Wrap.

Read her full statement below:

“Every woman who comes forward deserves to be heard, fully and completely, and our relationship with the accused should not be part of the calculation anyone makes when examining her case. Every person and every feminist should be required to hear her. Under patriarchy, ‘I believe you’ is essential. Until we are all believed, none of us will be believed. We apologize to any women who have been disappointed.

As feminists, we live and die by our politics, and believing women is the first choice we make every single day when we wake up. Therefore I never thought I would issue a statement publically (sic) supporting someone accused of sexual assault, but I naively believed it was important to share my perspective on my friend’s situation as it has transpired behind the scenes over the last few months. I now understand that it was absolutely the wrong time to come forward with such a statement and I am so sorry. We have been given the gift of powerful voices and by speaking out we were putting our thumb on the scale and it was wrong. We regret this decision with every fiber of our being.

Ben Affleck knew Harvey Weinstein “was sleazy”

affleck weinstein and damon

Partners: Wife-cheater Ben Affleck, sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and proggie Matt Damon

And yet he still befriended Weinstein and worked with him. Money over principles is the standard in Hollyweird.

And now Affleck goes on an apology tour just before his movie, Justice League, is released and receiving terrible reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. What a coincidence!

From NY Post: Ben Affleck knew Harvey Weinstein abused his power from the very beginning, but at the age of 24, he didn’t think there was anything he could do about it.

“I knew he was sleazy and kind of a bully, but unfortunately that wasn’t uncommon,” the “Justice League” star said Friday on the “Today” show. “I was brand new to Hollywood … I was 24 years old. I never made a movie and didn’t know much of anything, really.”

Affleck, now 45, worked with Weinstein, 65, on a slew of films, including “Shakespeare in Love” and “Good Will Hunting,” the latter of which earned him an Academy Award in 1998 for Best Original Screenplay. With more than 80 women having come forward to accuse the disgraced mogul of sexual harassment and assault, Affleck maintains he would like to be “part of the solution.”

“And, you know, it really is a shame because although I stopped working with Harvey a long time ago, those movies hold a special kind of place in my heart and to now look back on it and think like, ‘Gosh, some other people were going through something really ugly and disturbing [experiences],’” he said.

Affleck pledged to give his residual checks for the movies he made with Weinstein to anti-sexual violence organizations. He also said he believes the country has reached a turning point, where survivors aren’t afraid to speak out.

“It certainly feels like a really important moment,” he said. “It feels like a time when survivors are finding their voice and people are sort of — and I include myself in this — really discovering the terrible extent of this problem here in our country.”

As allegations of sexual misconduct continue to mount against several Hollywood heavyweights — including Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor, Louis C.K. and, most recently, Sylvester Stallone — Affleck has tried to own up to his own past misdeeds. The father of three apologized to former “TRL” personality Hilarie Burton in October, after the actress claimed he had groped her during a 2003 appearance on the show.

“I acted inappropriately towards Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” Affleck tweeted at the time.

Although Affleck didn’t go into detail about Rose McGowan, who called him a liar on Twitter after the New York Times revealed she was paid $100,000 to drop sexual harassment claims against Weinstein, he remains supportive.

“I don’t really want to get into other people’s individual stories because I feel like those are their stories and they are entitled to tell as much or as little of those as they want — I believe Rose, I support her, I really like and admire her tenacity and wish her the best,” Affleck said.

Thursday on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the actor said the outpouring of sexual misconduct allegations has been eye-opening.

“I thought I had a sense of the scope of the problem and I thought I understood it and the truth is, I really didn’t,” he said. “I didn’t understand what it’s like to be groped, harassed, to be interrupted, talked over, paid less, pushed around, belittled — all the things that women deal with that for me, as a man, I had the privilege of not having to deal with.

“Part of this, for me, has been listening to people that I care about and love as they tell me stories of stuff that’s happened to them, this is men and women, and realizing this is a real thing. I’m not a spokesperson, I’m not a superhero, I can’t change it by myself. I can just be accountable for myself and for my actions.”
