Martin Rittenhome: Young man I sell over $14 million dollars a year worth of Geritol, Geritol, that’s the kind of businessman I am. That show twenty-one, cost me 3 1/2 million dollars year in and year out. Sales went up 50% when Van Doren was on. 50%! So the very idea that I was unaware of every detail or aspect of that show’s operation, well frankly it’s very insulting.

The incest taboo can be destroyed only by destroying the nuclear family as the primary institution of the culture. The nuclear family is the school of values in a sexist, sexually repressed society.

As the Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Al Franken business continues to unfold I think it’s important to note the real significance of all that has come out here.
For the last 40 years Hollywood has had a cultural agenda, first the pushing of birth control, then abortion, then divorce, then the dismissal of Marriage vs living together, then the gay agenda, then then the destruction of traditional marriage, then the transgender agenda.
And intermingled with this was a constant and regular attack on Christianity, particularly the catholic church which, Pope Francis’ statements not withstanding still opposes all of these things. Said attacks reaching the point where the Church’s sex scandal which was primarily a scandal of gay pedophelia had nothing to do with homosexuality:
Got that sex with kids in an orientation totally different from straight or gays why it’s practically a 3rd gender. This oddly enough doesn’t tend to persuade because the logical follow-up is: How DARE people discriminate against individuals, clerical or otherwise based on their orientation of wanting to have sex with kids?
That argument while being advanced slowly in academia hasn’t caught fire with the general public who despite the best efforts of certain filmmakers somehow doesn’t cotton to the idea of children as sex objects.
Or to put it simply, for the last four decades Hollywood and the TV industry has done their level best to turn their sexual and cultural peccadillos into the norm and the media and the Democrats who have been the beneficiaries of Hollywood largess have done their best to go along with this agenda for the sake of their fun and profit.
And more importantly has kept silence because they supported these changes
What’s even more amazing is, as I noted before how quickly we forget how during the Obama years the chance to expose this stuff came up and it was quashed. That Dylan Farrow quote is worth repeating again:
What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?
Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. Imagine she spends a lifetime stricken with nausea at the mention of his name. Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter.
Are you imagining that? Now, what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?
Alas at the time Obama was in the White House, Hillary Clinton was going to be president next, Weinstein, Allen and Hollywood were invested in them and silence by all those who knew about them in the face of this in Hollywood remained golden:
Even worse if Ms Farrow is allowed to make such statements and be judged credible, then what other silent voices might speak up? Might this damage the most effective tools the cultural left has to advance their cause?
If the ICK factor is to be moved in the direction our cultural elites wish for it to be the horns must not be allowed to find themselves affixed irreverently on the head of Woody Allen least they spread to others of his ilk in the eyes of the public. They are to be reserved for Dana Loesch, Sarah Palin or even Mike Huckabee
This is why I believe that the culture wars need to be fought and as long as I have a voice in the great debate I intend to fight it.
And those of us who kept fighting paid for it as predicted four years ago:
Over the next few years you are going to be branded as bigots, hated and derided. You will be portrayed in every form of culture, plays, TV series and movies as people to be shunned and no member of the media fill fail to come after you for your offenses against the twin sacraments of Abortion & Gay Marriage.
But now like all totalitarian powers the end is in sight and as those oppressed see the gates about to fall, they stop being afraid and once that happens it becomes all over.
Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacy, James Toback have found this out, I suspect many more will follow in their path and when it collapses it will deal a blow to the cultural left that it will take all the money and power of the cultural left from foundations, to university endowments to the Soros crowd to contain.
And that’s why so many spent so much time to get us to stop fighting the culture ways but unfortunately for them there is one line from a Hollywood movie that we culture warriors have taken to heart.
Kevin Lomax: In the Bible you lose. We’re destined to lose dad.
The Devil’s Advocate 1997
They may have forgotten that but we haven’t.
Final thought, isn’t it amazing how quickly the worm turns for the cultural left when it’s to their advantage. Once the conversation was Roy Moore dating an 18 year old the ” age is just a number” crowd is strangely silent taken over by the ICK factor (and that was before they raised the ante on him).
