She was considered a ‘leader’ in the Time’s Up movement. So it was only a matter of time before someone asked her about this…
Weinstein. It was the story that rocked Hollywood and changed the rules of the game.
Predators — we hope — no longer have the free reign they once had in Hollywood and elsewhere.
And then as a follow-up to the hashtag #MeToo that raised interest in the issue, a group of activists organized a ‘Time’s Up’ movement.
On New Year’s Day, a story in the New York Times announced the existence of Time’s Up, a multifaceted effort by influential women in Hollywood to address sexual harassment, as well as other issues related to gender imbalance, in the entertainment industry and beyond.
One of the influential women involved in that effort is Natalie Portman, the Academy Award–winning actress who, like many of her colleagues, will be at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, where many men and women will dress entirely in black as a way to bring attention to Time’s Up and the legal defense fund it has established to help subsidize aid for women and men dealing with workplace sexual harassment.
She’s leading the charge. She’s wearing one of the proverbial white hats.
So how long did she really think it would be until this skeleton fell out of her closet?
You know… that one name nobody in Hollywood has dared bring up since the Weinstein issue came to light. The one that makes them all look like raving hypocrites, willing to throw not just a victim, but a CHILD under the bus just to protect one of their own elites.
We’re speaking, of course, about Roman ‘It’s not rape-rape’ Polanski.
Taken from the Kate Aurthur interview:
You signed the Roman Polanski petition after he was arrested in Switzerland in 2009. How do you feel about that now?
NP: I very much regret it. I take responsibility for not thinking about it enough. Someone I respected gave it to me, and said, “I signed this. Will you too?” And I was like, sure. It was a mistake. The thing I feel like I gained from it is empathy towards people who have made mistakes. We lived in a different world, and that doesn’t excuse anything. But you can have your eyes opened and completely change the way you want to live. My eyes were not open.
She doesn’t mind throwing other people under the bus, for things done ‘in the past’. But she wants to move forward from the bad judgment she exercised that day.
It gives her ’empathy to people who make mistakes’.
Weird. That sounds a lot less ‘judge-y’ than that speech she gave just after Inauguration Day.
“In order to effectively do so, we must seek leadership positions, and support other women who do the same. Until we make it normal to have at least half, if not more, of our leaders be female, we will be serving, and with our taxes financing, a government that believes it’s within their domain to make decisions for our future,” she continued.
“Thank you all for being here, and for showing our power to the world, and thank you to the wonderful men, who show us that women also have many champions and compadres. Now, from the bottom of both hearts beating inside my miraculous female body, I want to thank our new president. You just started the revolution,” she concluded her speech, powerfully raising her microphone in the air.
Pussy hat roar.
Blah blah blah.
Trump is ‘the enemy’.
Polanski — the confessed child rapist — is just a misunderstood genius.
She never raised the issue on her own. She just kinda-sorta-said she regretted it when she was called out. She was a passive bystander holding the pen in a petition, you see?
Just a girl signing where she’s told to?
Portman seems to be powerful when she has demands of others. But weak when it comes to owning responsibility.
That’s not a good combination of traits for anyone pretending to project leadership… whatever their gender.
(Pro tip: That’s a big part of why Hillary lost.)
The Effeminization Of The American Male

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
