Obsolete Filmmaker Woody Allen Defends Rapist at Cannes Film Festival


Director turned rapist Roman Polanski was still a hot topic at the Cannes Film Festival in France last weekend. Naturally, many of us would have assumed this situation would have blown over by now after it appeared Polanski was to be forced back to the U.S. last fall. However, if he did not face justice [...]

The Left: Misogyny Apologists Under the Guise of Tolerance


The Left constantly claims the mantle of being Pro-Women’s Rights. Yet, they prove time and time again that it is lip service only. In fact, they are often either misogynists or misogyny apologists themselves, all in the name of some sort of  call for a perverted version of “diversity” and “tolerance.”
They’ve recently gone so far [...]

Diesel’s Ad Campaign to Teens: “Show Us Your Boobs”


It seems that advertising executives now think it’s totally cool to include teens in that whole “sex sells” marketing tool. Diesel Jeans has a new ad campaign running, called Be Stupid (sadly, they don’t mean it ironically) wherein they encourage people to “have balls.” Okay, “having balls”, or as grown-ups like to say, taking risks, has its [...]

Roman Polanski Affair Proves Hollywood Out of Step with America


When even leftists like Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski attack Hollywood, you can be quite certain that the glitterati have strayed incalculably far from the barest shred of common sense.
Such an attack took place on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” last Friday. Robinson and Brzezinski opened by criticizing those far-left multi-millionaire actors and directors who had rushed to the defense [...]

Polanski Petition Doesn’t Address Rape Charges


Does arresting Roman Polanski mean that he is not a great filmmaker?  Does it mean we don’t feel for his traumatic childhood in which he survived the Holocaust?  Can is possibly mean we don’t feel for the loss of his late wife at the evil hands of the Manson family?
