RAPE-RAPE

Whoopi Goldberg is facing a fierce backlash after saying that film director Roman Polanski didn't commit "rape-rape" when he had unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. Goldberg, star of The Color Purple and Sister Act, said: "I know it wasn't rape-rape. I think it was something else, but I don't believe it was rape-rape."

Really.  What else does the article go on to say?

His victim, Samantha Gailey, told a grand jury that the director had plied her with champagne and drugs and taken nude pictures of her in a hot tub during a fashion shoot. Polanski then had sexual intercourse with her despite her resistance and requests to be taken home, she said.

Whew.  I'm glad I now understand the difference between rape and rape-rape.

So which one did Cameron Diaz mean that Bush would legalize?  Real rape or the "I'm famous so I can do whatever I want" rape?

Hollywood is completely nuts.

Awesome quote by John Nolte:

If his unspeakable deed doesn’t meet the standard, what exactly would Roman Polanski have to do in order to become a pariah in this town … I mean, besides vote for Sarah Palin?

1 Hollywood's attitude on this just floors me. A 13-year-old CANNOT legally consent to sexual relations, regardless of being pumped full of drugs and alcohol. The list of Hollywood characters saying we should just forget about it, "it was 30 years ago", disgusts me. It's no real wonder why I haven't been to a movie since Marley & Me last holiday season (though I wanted to see Harry Potter, but with baseball season and not having anyone to go with, I missed it). I don't want to give these people my hard-earned money.

2 The expressions I get when these people talk probably make me look like Jim Carrey on crack (which is probably normal Jim Carrey, really). 

Anyway, I get you.  I don't care HOW long ago it was, or how many "good" movies the guy made since then.  Your culpability for a crime does not suddenly disappear just because it "happened a long time ago."

Honestly - I think that makes it worse.  He's had 30 years to go sow more wild oats.  He's had time he should not have had.  He's not only NOT learned a lesson in appropriate behavior, but he's had the idea that he's above the law ingrained in him.

He's a pervert, a disgusting pedophile, and a RAPIST and he should be treated as such.  I also agree with one of my peeps on Facebook who said that anyone who thinks he should be forgiven should ask themselves if they'd send their daughter or granddaughter over to Uncle Roman's house for a weekend of babysitting.

Right.  That's what I thought.

4 Rape is Rape is Rape..
The girl was underage. She could NOT give consent.
The charge is RAPE.
In my humble opinion, the perpertraor should be hung, drawn and quartered.

6 Also, I wonder how Whoopi would take it if I said that Dog the Bounty Hunter's N word tirade wasn't "racism-racism". 

Not that I WOULD say that, because let's face it - it was racism.  Seriously.

Just like what Polanski did was rape.

7 It totally disgusted me when I read about that.  It's amazing how hurt and unfair Hollywood thinks this "situation" is to them.  They need to get over it.  Jackazzes.  I'm for the drawing and quartering.

8 Would it have been "rape-rape" had it happened to Whoopi's daughter or one of her two granddaughters? You bet your butt it would. In an instant.

Better yet, would Whoopi or any other of those that are so quick to rush to Mr. Polanski's defense allow him to EVER babysit their 13 year odl daughter? I doubt it seriously.
