Saw a guy wearing a “Free Polanski!” T-shirt today.
Are people actually defending this scumbag?
You have got to be kidding me.
Let us review, shall we?
He raped a 13 year old girl.
He was a 44 year old sexual predator who planned his crime with deliberation in order to rape a 13 year old child. He drugged her. Then he sodomized her, repeatedly, orally, anally, and then vaginally.
He admitted this in court. He is not “Roman Polanski, alleged pedophile and child rapist.” He is “Roman Polanski, pedophile, child rapist, and complete fucking scumbag who fled justice when it appeared that he might actually have to pay for his crimes.”
And he’s spent the last 30 years avoiding paying for those crimes.
He’s spent the last 30 years living his life, walking about like he was a normal human being and not the child raping scumbag that he is.
He finally got caught.
And people are actually defending him.
People are actually saying that because he is such a great director his crimes should just be excused.
Excused? We should just excuse rape because this guy makes movies?
At the risk of repeating myself, you’ve got to be kidding me.
Half of Hollywood is up in arms, outraged at Polanski’s arrest. These people have lost their Goddamned minds. Oh, sure, I can understand somebody like Woody Allen – you know, the guy who screwed around on his wife with his step daughter, and then eventually married the girl after being divorced by her irate mother. Then there’s Whoopie Goldberg, who seems to think that there’s a difference between rape, and “rape-rape” – one wonders if she would make such a fine distinction if she was the victim. But the real prize goes to Debra Tate, sister of Polanski’s deceased wife, actress Sharon Tate. Tate said that “the rape was consensual.” Consensual rape? The mind boggles at the shear size of the oxymoron. Tate apparently does understand the concept of statutory rape, but thinks it's OK when Polanski does it. When the Manson Family came to slaughter her pregnant sister, I have to wonder if Debra Tate considered that consensual too?
I don’t give a shit what movies this scumbag has made. I don’t care what prizes he’s won.
Roman Polanski is an admitted rapist and sexual predator.
He belongs in jail with the other child molesters.
