Everybody knows Hollywood is a cesspool of immorality.
Each day it seems a new story of depravity breaks.
But Nicole Kidman just revealed something that exposed the true predatory nature of Hollywood.
Hollywood is a mess.
Producer Harvey Weinstein fell from his perch after many accounts of sexual misconduct.
There were even allegations of rape.
Once the story broke, other similar accounts popped up.
Hollywood bigwigs like Kevin Spacey found themselves in the crosshairs.
Director Ridley Scott had to reshoot “All the Money in the World” to replace Kevin Spacey.
These predators getting their just desserts seemed long overdue.
But they covered up a bigger problem in Hollywood.
The “casting couch” culture created these monsters.
And that culture still lives.
It’s so prevalent, the concept of the “casting couch” is considered funny.
Movies about Hollywood poke fun at it.
Marilyn Monroe’s character in “All About Eve” joked about the casting couch.
The #MeToo movement allowed Hollywood to paper over an old problem.
Nicole and Tom
Actress Nicole Kidman recently talked about #MeToo in an interview with New York Magazine.
During the interview, she made a very telling statement about ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Kidman said, “I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed.”
This is eye-opening.
It speaks to how much the left degraded the culture.
It took the specter of a powerful man to keep the wolves away from Kidman.
This is what happens when morality and decency are mocked.
Predators get to roam free.
Conservatives always preach the importance of moral standards.
But the left hates those ethics.
Then leftists act surprised when men behave unethically.
The left ripped Vice Mike Pence for refusing to dine alone with a woman other than his wife.
Without them, people will behave badly.
Harvey Weinstein’s downfall is complete, but he could drag down others with him.
There is a lot of bad behavior to account for.
The #MeToo movement even seeped into media and politics.
Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer both saw their careers die after many allegations.
And Bill Clinton has a long track record of predation.
Even a handful of leftists are throwing him under the bus for his prior sins.
But not many.
Hillary Clinton is in damage control mode because she’s trying to remain relevant.
She recently dismissed the idea of the power imbalance between President Clinton and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky being too great.
If the Democrats believe in their principles, Bill Clinton must be sacrificed.
But they still cling to him.
Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s “The View” admitted during the 2016 campaign that she supported Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton because they have the right politics.
Oprah Winfrey was close friends with Harvey Weinstein.
She even vouched for him with other women.
And she had to know who he was.
His reputation was well-known, even to people outside the industry.
But then Oprah had the gall to lecture the rest of the country on sexual misconduct during a Golden Globes speech.
So it’s impossible to take the left’s moral preening seriously.
