Once again Murdoch attack dog, Rita Panahi has outdone herself with her article (pay-walled) on Harvey Weinstein. Weinstien is at the centre of a series of sex scandals and has been sacked from his own company. While Weinstein should be rightly condemned for his actions, it is the extreme partisan nonsense coming from the sock puppet Panahi that grows tiresome.
Never one to let an opportunity go when it comes to putting the boot into the left, she has bizarrely tried to tie in left-wing politics with Harvey`s conduct. What has this got to do with the left?
Yes, Weinstien was a donor of Clinton’s campaign, but so what? Is Rita suggesting that the left are more deviant than the right? This man has done some disgraceful things, but so too has right-wing poster boy, the pedophile apologist, Milo Yianapolous. The silence was deafening when Milo’s shocking interview surfaced, in which he appeared to advocate 13 year old sex with an adult.
So too was the silence and defence of George Pell. Apparently, according to the right-wing zealot, Andrew Bolt, “Cardinel George Pell was the victim of a witch hunt.”
Panahi goes on to put the boot in to progressive causes and rants like a demented chicken over “virtue signalling against the NRA.” This woman is a hoot.
Towards the end of her article, she then goes onto say, and I quote; “Hollywood’s moral compass is so warped, you are more likely to be ostracized for being a conservative than a sexual predator.” What asinine crap! Weinstien has now been exposed for the deviant that he is. Unfortunately he was allowed to continue on his way for far too long. This had nothing to do with what side of the political fence he sat on, but everything to do with the power that he wielded in Hollywood.
The silence is also deafening when it comes to Murdoch’s Middle Eastern war interests, via his company Geanie Energy. Why are Muslims demonized constantly in his grotty rags? Why is Murdoch ludicrously pro Israel, when the human rights abuses in that country are now known around the world? It wouldn’t have something to do with his drilling rights in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, would it?
But oh no, let’s focus on the deviant left. Two can play this game, Panahi!
The hypocrisy as always from the usual Newscorp ghouls is breathtaking. If you are going to throw stones, Rita Panahi, best you move out of that glass house.
Not only do these hacks scrape the bottom of the barrel … they go underneath it looking for more grime. Clean out your own shithouse before you go conflating issues and pontificating on the so-called deviant left.
