    Hollywood’s Conspiracy of Silence

    By kyle | October 11, 2017

    Did George Clooney and Meryl Streep really not know what was going on with Harvey Weinstein? I think not. More in a column.

      1) In trouble:

      — Amazon (Bezos tied to Weinstein)

      2) In more trouble: NBC.

      — Protecting Weinstein.

      Andy Lack is due to a very rude, explosive surprise, quite soon. Bad enough his M. Kelly = $17M/year ratings disaster. And NBC refused to support / air the Farrow report.

      Personally, I’ve been waiting to see this since 1984.

      3) In more trouble:

      — The NFL.

      4) Hiroshima’d: Hollywood.

      — All these perv-rats are screaming at each other in decibels not heard since the 1950s blacklisting.

      “Their excuse — ‘We didn’t know’ — doesn’t cut it.”

      Germans who survived WWII were interviewed after the war.

      The above response was their almost-unanimous reply to the question, “How could the Holocaust in your country have happened?”

      How could it have started, existed & continued to thrive?

      That response ( a lie) is now the infamous, proprietary rhetoric of the conveniently resurrected “conscience” of Hollywood
