So Roman Polanski is in hot water again, but this time it's not at Jack Nicholson's house. Instead, he's in a Swiss jail and Hollywood is desperately trying to come to his rescue.
Woody Allen, Debra Winger and Whoopi Goldberg — among others — have come to his defense, in what can only be described as brave acts of selective anti-feminism.
What is a selective anti-feminist? It is a feminist who turns a blind eye to sexual abuse if it's done by someone who shares their assumptions about the world (like a creepy film director or a left wing politician with a penchant for opening his front door without his pants on.)
In other words, they're "chickenhawk rapists."
You must remember, during the Bush years, how places like the Huffington Post would call anyone a "chickenhawk" who strongly supported the Iraq war without ever seeing combat.
How funny is it now, that the Huffington Post is saturated with columns supporting Polanski, by people whom I assume have never had their underage daughters sodomized by a ghoulish director in a hot tub.
That's a "chickenhawk rapist": A person who supports a scumbag, without actually experiencing the brutality caused by that scumbag.
Surely some of these sympathetic directors and actors must have a teenage daughter. So, to prove their belief that Roman is a truly gentle man exempt from stupid American ideals of justice, these supporters should feel confident enough to leave their daughter alone with the man in a hot tub.
The upside is, Roman is in his 70s now, so maybe this time the girl will have a fighting chance.
And if you disagree with me, then you're probably a racist.
