You’ve been had, Mz Feminist of the 21st Century. 

Totally had.

Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and the leaders of the day after inauguration Big Women’s March aren’t the champions of women, but the exploiters of them.

They’re in the tank with Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who “confronted with allegations including sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact, has reached at least eight settlements with women, according to two company officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.” (New York Times, Oct. 5, 2017)

The biggest self-proclaimed “champions” of women are, in fact, their biggest exploiters.

“Weinstein was a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton’s recent presidential run and donated to her political campaigns about 10 times between 1999 and 2016, according to a review of campaign finance records. (Hollywood Reporter, Oct. 5, 2017)

“Weinstein’s donations to Clinton over the years total more than $20,000 and span from her successful campaign for U.S. Senate in New York in 2000 to her unsuccessful presidential campaigns of 2007 and 2016. He also donated to her husband’s presidential campaigns in the 1990s.”

And it wasn’t just self-touted Champion of Women Hillary Clinton that Weinstein, maker or breaker of Hollywood careers, financed.

“He also hosted fundraisers benefiting Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012 and donated several times to his campaign in 2011 and 2012. Weinstein was considered a “bundler” for Obama’s campaign, as he raised $679,275 for it. (Hollywood Reporter)

“Obama’s daughter, Malia Obama, also recently interned for Harvey Weinstein’s company in New York during a break before college.” (Vanity Fair, Jan. 20, 2017)

How much more in the tank does it get than that?

And get a load of the lineup who handled Weinstein’s PR in anticipation of the NYT’s exposé:

“A former top adviser to Barack Obama was among the list of public relations professionals and lawyers consulting Harvey Weinstein over a major New York Times story, according to two people familiar with the matter. (Buzzfeed News, Oct. 5, 2017)

“Anita Dunn, a top Obama campaign staffer and former White House communications director, helped offer damage control advice for the Hollywood mogul.”

That’s the same Anita Dunn who named two of her “favorite political philosophers” as Mao Tse Tung and Mother Teresa, being the first in history to couple a monster and a saint.

Dunn, then Obama’s communication director, revealed her two favorite political philosophers two months before her boss honored the Chinese dictator with his very own orb on the 2009 White House official Christmas tree.

“Dunn was not paid by Weinstein for her help, according to one of the people familiar with the matter. But she did offer her PR advice, including in regards to a Sept. 23 Times story written by Megan Twohey. (Buzzfeed) “The story, about a controversy over Weinstein’s work with AIDS charity amfAR, was thought to be a precursor to the big investigation posted on Thursday.

“Sources said that Lanny Davis, former special counsel to Bill Clinton, has been central to the PR effort for Weinstein, who is a major Democratic donor.

“Dunn, for her part, is the managing director of SKDKnickerbocker, a Washington public affairs firm with deep ties to Democratic politics. She was communications director for Obama’s 2008 campaign and served briefly in his administration.”

Nothing to see here, folks, only attempted damage control through high-flown PR.

“On Thursday afternoon, the New York Times published a major investigation into Weinstein that features on-the-record claims of sexual harassment, including from actor Ashley Judd.” (NY Times)

And that’s got to be the best part of the story, Ashley Judd, who made claims of being sexually harassed by Weinstein, never mentioned it on the day of the Big Women’s March.

Instead she portrayed newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump as pervert and monster, saying that Trump’s election victory was worse than being raped.

“Actress and left-wing activist Ashley Judd says the “tragedy” of Donald Trump’s election victory is far worse than an experience from her childhood in which she was raped. (Breitbart, Feb. 24, 2017)

“It remains for me the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my lifetime,” Judd said of Trump’s successful election. “Raped as a child – bad. Re-raped by a political system that ordains a clown – really bad.”

“Last month, at the Women’s March in Washington, DC, Judd bashed Trump by suggesting that he has sexual fantasies about his daughter, Ivanka Trump.

“I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, like your wet dreams infused with your own genes,” Judd said.”

Meanwhile, Weinstein included what he will be doing when working with therapists during his leave of absence “to deal with this issue head on”, in a statement to the New York Times:

“I’ve been trying to do this for 10 years and this is a wake-up call. I cannot be more remorseful about the people I hurt and I plan to do right by all of them. I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. (Huffington Post, Oct. 5, 2017)

“I’m going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. I’m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party.”

In other words, Harvey Weinstein is throwing completely in with the hate-filled Donald Trump activists.

Weinstein, who paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to get Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama elected, is no longer working for them but with them.
