#WarOnWomen: Quentin Tarantino signs on actor who assaulted female executive for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

Convicted offender Hirsch (l) and Tarantino with his buddy Weinstein (r)

Quentin Tarantino wrote and is directing a new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is due out August 2019. About the movie, from IMDb:

“A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”

You know who was murdered? Shannon Tate, who was 8 ½ months pregnant at the time of her grisly murder.

Now, 49 years later, Quentin Tarantino feels the need to make yet another movie about these horrific murders.

Here’s a list of some of the better-known actors who have signed on for this movie:

  • Brad Pitt
  • Margot Robbie
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Kurt Russell
  • Al Pacino
  • Luke Perry
  • Burt Reynolds
  • Emile Hirsch

That last name may not be familiar to you. I’ve never heard of him.

Emile Hirsch has a past of assaulting a woman. Here’s what I found out about Mr. Hirsch, from Wikipedia:

“Emile Davenport Hirsch (born March 13, 1985) is an American actor. He starred in Into the Wild (2007) and the A&E network simulcast miniseries Bonnie & Clyde (2013). Other films include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002), The Girl Next Door (2004), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Alpha Dog (2006), Speed Racer (2008), Milk (2008), The Darkest Hour (2011), The Motel Life (2012), Lone Survivor (2013), and Vincent N Roxxy (2016).

On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015 at the Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah. On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.”

Apparently Hirsch was intoxicated at a party and doesn’t remember grabbing Daniele from behind, throwing her to the floor and putting her in a chokehold until she blacked out. It took two men to remove Hirsch from his victim.

Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino knew of Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior. Back in October 2017 he said the following (from USA Today):

“Quentin Tarantino has spoken out on his longtime and close working relationship with producer Harvey Weinstein, acknowledging that he’s ashamed he was aware of some of Weinstein’s abhorrent acts but did not take a stand against them.

“I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.

Tarantino cited several Weinstein episodes involving prominent actresses. 

“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”

So a man (Tarantino) who ignored Weinstein’s behavior has signed on a convicted assault offender (Hirsch) to star in a movie about the murder of a pregnant woman?

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

The dark side of Anthony Bourdain

Last Friday, June 8, 2018, we were told that Trump-hater celebrity-chef Anthony Bourdain, 61, host of CNN’s “Parts Unknown,” had died that morning in a French hotel of suicide. Bourdain allegedly hanged himself using the belt of his bathrobe.

Last September, Bourdain said he would give Trump poison if given the chance. In November, he said it’s great that in 70 years there won’t be any more white people, notwithstanding the fact that he himself was white, although many Jews curiously believe themselves to be a separate race, instead of “white”.

Some expressed sympathy for Bourdain, citing Alex Jones that Bourdain had recently “seen the light.” Others hint darkly that Bourdain might have been “Arkancided”. They point to Bourdain having joined his actress girlfriend Asia Argento in the #MeToo movement against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and, in so doing, allegedly triggered the ire of Hillary Clinton and her followers.

Last October 11, he tweeted that surely Hillary would have known of Weinstein’s sexual crimes. To which a Hillary representative replied, telling Bourdain to go “eat a scorpion.” That prompted Bourdain to tweet this on May 2, 2018 (source: TruePundit):

“…and I am in no way an HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] fan. I’ve been on the receiving end of her operatives’ wrath. And it ain’t fun.”

Those who know him, however, say Bourdain was depressed. According to TMZ, Bourdain had been dumped by his girlfriend Asia Argento just days before the suicide:

Anthony was shooting his show in France this week — he’d been there for at least 4 days. However, Asia was back in Rome, strolling around with a French reporter named Hugo Clément. There were photos of them holding hands and hugging, but the Italian photographer who shot the pics pulled them off the market on the heels of Anthony’s death. It’s unclear if Anthony and Asia had broken up. If they did, there was no public announcement. Their last public appearance together was at an event was back in April in NYC.

Whatever that was on Bourdain’s mind, photos he’d posted to Instagram show a disturbing obsession with the macabre:

A pic (date unknown) of his best friend, French chef Eric Ripert, looking menacing in a blood-stained chef’s jacket. Ripert had found Bourdain’s body in the bathroom of Bourdain’s room in a hotel in France:

On February 16, 2014, a photo of bowls of raw blood soup:

On December 25, 2015, a pic of a Medieval skull-drilling gadget, which he called a “great gift”:

On February 14, 2016, a hand holding a human heart, drenched in blood. The pic was “liked” by 22,491 people:

On February 14, 2017, a blood-stained knife next to an excised heart:

On March 11, 2017, a pic of his girlfriend Asia Argento and a young girl in red shoes. According to free-lance investigative journalist Liz Crokin, red shoes signify pedophiles because the Illuminati uses The Wizard of Oz movie, in which Dorothy wore red shoes, to brainwash child sex slaves.

On June 3, 2017, a pic of his girlfriend drenched in blood, her mouth blood-smeared (from cannibalism?):

Pics of Argento making Illuminati hand-signs:

On July 15, 2017, a pic of himself and another man posing with a bottle of a baby preserved in formaldehyde:

On July 21, 2017, a painting of trepanning. Trepanning is the drilling of a hole into the human skull to treat intracranial diseases or to release pressure from blood build up. Perversely, trepanning is making a return as a cultural fad, like ingesting Tide pods:

Woody Allen thinks he’s the “poster boy” for the #MeToo movement

woody allen

From NY Post: Woody Allen isn’t happy to be a self-proclaimed “poster boy for the #MeToo movement.”

“I’m a big advocate of the #MeToo movement,” Allen, 82, told Argentinian news program Periodismo Para Todos (“Journalism for All”) (via Quartz) on Monday. “I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it’s a good thing that they’re exposing them. But you know I — I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement, because I have worked in movies for 50 years. I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one — big ones, famous ones, ones starting out — have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all. I’ve always had a wonderful record with them.

(However, in 2015, Mariel Hemingway, who starred in Allen’s 1979 film “Manhattan,” alleged in her memoir “Out Came the Sunthat Allen attempted to seduce her when she turned 18 and he was 44.)

While the auteur may not believe he’s on Harvey Weinstein, James Toback or Kevin Spacey levels of conduct, many stars, including Greta Gerwig, Mira Sorvino, Jeff Daniels and Michael Caine, have renounced working with him in light of the sexual abuse allegations that his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, made against him.

Allen was accused of molesting then-7-year-old Dylan in 1993 in Mia Farrow‘s Connecticut home. Law enforcement and sexual abuse experts investigated the allegations at the time, the Los Angeles Times reported, but a prosecutor declined to press charges to spare Dylan the trauma of a trial; a judge in the case deemed Allen’s behavior toward his daughter “grossly inappropriate.”

Allen has maintained his innocence since the accusations were first leveled against him, alleging that scorned ex Mia was coaching Dylan to lie to gain revenge on Allen for dating Mia’s other adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

Now 32, Dylan has repeated her accusations numerous times since the dawning of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.

“This is something that has been thoroughly looked at 25 years ago by all the authorities and everybody came to the conclusion that it was untrue,” Allen said. “And that was the end and I’ve gone on with my life. For it to come back now, it’s a terrible thing to accuse a person of. I’m a man with a family and my own children. So of course it’s upsetting.”

“I think in any situation where anyone is accused of someone unjustly, this is a sad thing. I think everybody would agree with that,” he continued. “Everyone wants justice to be done. If there is something like the #MeToo movement now, you root for them, you want them to bring to justice these terrible harassers, these people who do all these terrible things. And I think that’s a good thing. What bothers me is that I get linked with them. People who have been accused by 20 women, 50 women, 100 women of abuse and abuse and abuse — and I, who was only accused by one woman in a child custody case which was looked at and proven to be untrue, I get lumped in with these people.”

Allen’s other children, including daughter Bechet (with Previn) and son Moses Farrow, have spoken out in his defense. Son Ronan Farrow has been a staunch and constant defender of Dylan.

Though Allen feels victimized by Hollywood, he still has many defenders, including Alec Baldwin and Diane Keaton, as well as other stars who have quietly supported him, like Scarlett Johansson.

Penélope Cruz, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Allen’s 2008 film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” takes a similar stance to Cate Blanchett (who took home a Best Actress trophy for her work with Allen in “Blue Jasmine”) — she doesn’t have all the details and she thinks the case should possibly be reopened.

“The only answer that I can give you with common sense that is not about a headline is [that] the case has to be looked at again,” Cruz, 44, told Vanity Fair on Saturday. “The important thing is, if there is a case anywhere in the world that isn’t clear, then why not look at it again? I am in favor of that. We have a collection of headlines saying this actor would work with him again, and this one said they wouldn’t — this doesn’t change anything. This doesn’t add anything good to the situation. We’re supposed to believe in justice, and this was looked at years ago, and it’s not clear. It should be looked at again, and then I can give an answer.”

NBC/MSNBC reporter asks Chelsea Clinton about her dad’s sexual misconduct accusers

msnbc

Yeah, riiiiiiiight.

From Fox News: First daughter Ivanka Trump scolded NBC and MSNBC reporter Peter Alexander for what she considered an inappropriate question about her father’s sexual misconduct accusers during an interview from South Korea on Monday.

The first daughter sat down with Alexander who, after a voice-over explaining that President Trump has denied accusations of sexual misconduct, asked, “Do you believe your father’s accusers?”

“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters,” Ivanka fired back. “I believe my father, I know my father.”

Some pro-Trump viewers took to Twitter to defend the first daughter. One viewer tweeted, “Why even ask Ivanka Trump about the allegations of sexual misconduct against her Dad? What did Peter Alexander think she was going to say?”

Another viewer said, “The question was both crude and rude,” while many others pondered whether or not reporters would ask Chelsea Clinton a similar question about her father.

“Ivanka answered the very inflammatory & inappropriate questions from NBC perfectly,” a viewer tweeted. “Does NBC wonder why the public dislikes them so much?

Trump has denied accusations of different forms of sexual misconduct that have been levied against him.

Some media members defended Alexander, such as CNN’s Jake Tapper, who said Ivanka “works for the taxpayers” and he’s “trying to figure out what part of this is inappropriate.”

Washington Post’s Phillip Rucker, who is Alexander’s colleague as an MNSBC and NBC News analyst, wrote that it’s “not an inappropriate question” because “Ivanka Trump has chosen to work in the House as a staffer and presidential adviser.”

While many defended Alexander’s question because the first daughter also works for her father’s administration, some industry insiders have wondered if NBC is hypocritical when it comes to sexual misconduct.

NBC News Chairman Andy Lack also oversees MSNBC and Alexander frequently appears on both networks. Last year, Lack was forced to fire “Today” star Matt Lauer because of sexual misconduct allegations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Lack has not been transparent about the events that led up to the sudden firing of his close friend as parent company Comcast has said its top HR executives are investigating who knew what about Lauer’s behavior during his long reign at NBC.

There is no public information about the investigation into its news division, which is apparently still underway three months after Lauer was shown the door. Meanwhile, Lack has yet to give a cogent explanation for why NBC News spiked Ronan Farrow’s explosive reporting on Harvey Weinstein, which Farrow eventually took to the prestigious New Yorker magazine and is now receiving Pulitzer buzz for helping expose the disgraced Hollywood mogul as a sexual predator. A Vanity Fair feature tied the Weinstein and Lauer scandals together, quoting a former employee who said, “They were sitting in a glass house and they knew it.”

NBCUniversal told Fox News on Monday that the internal investigation is “ongoing” and involves top legal and human resources executives from the company.

Feminism and Satanism: #MeToo movement inspires voodoo New York fashion show

Though the stuff of Hollywood knowledge for decades, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse of women did not become public news until October 2017.

That news, in turn, opened the floodgates, followed by accusations of sexual misconduct against other Hollyweirdos — producers, directors and actors — as well as men in other industries, including the media.

In response, a “Me Too” movement (hashtag #MeToo) spread virally on social media against the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment of women in the workplace. The movement went beyond social media to include in-person protests, as well as spawn the Time’s Up movement to help fight sexual violence and harassment in the workplace through lobbying and providing funding for victims to get legal help if they can’t afford it.

All well and good.

But what does #MeToo have to do with Sports Illustrated magazine posing women naked, or with satanic voodooism?

Associating #MeToo with voodoo was exactly what the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) did, by featuring a creepy voodoo-themed fashion show claiming to be inspired by the #MeToo movement.

On the first night of NYFW on February 8, 2018, fashion designers Lamine Kouyate (of XULY.Bët), Mimi Prober and Hogan McLaughin combined their shows as a “paean to two voodoo spirits demons, Ezili Dantor and Ezili Freda” who are said to represent “perfect femininity”.

XULY.Bët designer Lamine Kouyate, who hails from the African country of Mali, said the fashion show was inspired partly by the #MeToo movement and anger over President Trump’s alleged “s—hole countries” remark.

The fashion show included:

  • A voodoo priestess, Sallie Ann Glassman, who was flown in from New Orleans.
  • A group of Haitian voodoo drummers, led by Atibon Legba.
  • TV personality and amateur witch Kelly Cutrone, founder of People’s Revolution, a group described by Cutrone as an assembly of “pagans, Jews, witches and voodoo practitioners trying to do something for feminism and the retail business.”
  • A machete, supposedly wielded by the spirit demon Ezili Dantor.

Paul Bois of The Daily Wire points out that contemporary feminism has “strong ties” to witchcraft, i.e., satanism.

According to Laurie Penny at The Baffler, the number of feminist witches has been steadily rising since the 1960s to an apex in the Trump era. Since day one of his administration, witches have performed a variety of spells and hexes to “bind” the president from implementing policies that defund baby-killing Planned Parenthood.

See “Crisis actors dressed up like witches put hex on President Trump in California park”; “Demonic Left’s curses on Trump backfired”; “2016 presidential election was a spiritual war, and it’s ongoing”.

Why do contemporary feminists identify with Satanism?

The answer: Abortion, the common nexus of contemporary feminism and satanists.

See “’I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion’: Abortion and Moloch”.

 

According to Market Watch, “interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials.” Millennials are replacing traditional religions with witchcraft, astrology, aura reading, mediumship, tarot-card reading, and palmistry — practices that Christianity views as demonic. Adherents to these practices grew 2% between 2011 and 2016, creating an industry that is now worth $2 billion annually.

Hey boys! Chelsea Handler’s 2018 goal is to sleep with a republican!

Chelsea Handler

I recommend a hard pass of any woman that might enjoy an “urinary Bermuda triangle.”

From Fox News: Chelsea Handler is known for her inflammatory and often controversial tweets and her latest post did not disappoint. “In my effort to achieve some level of bipartisanship, my goal this year was to sleep with a Republican— voluntarily,” Handler tweeted on Tuesday. “It’s going to be tricky.”

The comedian has been focusing on political advocacy since her Netflix series “Chelsea” was cancelled last year.

She has made headlines lately for a series of offensive tweets including one about Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. “Holy, f–k f–k. I just [saw] the video of trumps bipartisan ‘meeting’ yesterday,” Handler tweeted on Jan.10.

Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of d–k sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?”

In September 2017, Handler went after first lady Melania Trump on Twitter.“Melania to host a discussion on opioid abuse. She says unless you have to have sex with Donald Trump, you have no excuse to be on drugs,” Handler tweeted on Sept. 29, 2017.

So brave: Actress Kate Winslet says she “regrets” working with certain people

kate winslet and roman polanski

Kate Winslet with a certain person…

Apparently Kate didn’t have access to the internet before her or her agent signed her up to work with “certain people.”

Bet Kate is also regretting this: Kate Winslet praising Woody Allen to promote their dismal movie, Wonder Wheel.

From HuffPo: Kate Winslet cryptically spoke about the “bitter regrets” and “poor decisions” she made to work with individuals with whom she wishes she hadn’t.

Theactress has long been raving about “Wonder Wheel” director Woody Allen, who has been accused of molesting his daughter when she was young, calling Allen an “extraordinary writerand saying that the opportunity to work with him made her “feel terrified and also immensely privileged.”

However, in contrast to that message, Winslet shared her thoughts on supporting “vulnerable people” and spoke out against sexual abuse at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards Sunday night. After accepting a special award, the Oscar winner never named names but did mention “individuals” in power that she regrets working with.

“As women around the world and from all walks of life marched last weekend, once again joining together to speak out against harassment, exploitation and abuse, I realized that I wouldn’t be able to stand here this evening and keep to myself some bitter regrets that I have about poor decisions to work with individuals with whom I wish I had not,” Winslet said, according to the BBC.

It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men. Sexual abuse is a crime. While it rests with the rule of law to pass judgment, it lies with all of us to listen to the smallest of voices and to never stop listening. … I know we all stand together in hoping that this moment in history paves the way for a transformed future for generation upon generation to come.”

Winslet, who was honored with the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film, has previously worked with Allen and with film executive Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by dozens of women.
