Hillary Clinton condemns Harvey Weinstein, what is she going to do with his donations?

October 10, 2017

  I suppose when you are “married” to an alleged serial sex abuser it is hard to understand what all the Harvey Weinstein hubbub is all about, that is the only reason I can come up with for why it took Hillary Clinton nearly a week to condemn the actions over decades of one of her campaign contributors. But today she finally condemned Harver Weinstein, here is more:

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she is “shocked and appalled” by sexual assault and harassment allegations against movie mogul-Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein.

“The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated,” the former secretary of State said in a statement. “Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”

  However, to date the former Presidential candidate did not say whether or not she would keep his donations:

In the statement, Clinton did not say whether her campaign would donate contributions she had received from Weinstein. A spokesman for Clinton did not immediately respond to questions from CNBC about the donations.

  I have to believe she is hoping to keep the donations and that is why she did not use this opportunity to announce she was either donating or returning the money. I do believe eventually, as pressure mounts, she will reluctantly turn over the money. Although, knowing the greed of the Clinton’s, one has to wonder if she actually cares about the optics of keeping the money.

  What I am about to write now is not all that original, most conservatives are saying the same thing, however the hypocrisy of the left on this issue cannot be ignored so here goes.

  The Democrats in general, Hillary Clinton in particular, and Hollywood have been attacking Donald Trump for months over a stupid, arrogant, and disgusting comment he made a decade ago to show he is a misogynist. Yet here we have Harvey Weinstein, a liberal, who actually acted out over decades what Donald Trump only bragged about being able to do, and yet they are only now beginning to reluctantly speak out against it now that it cannot be avoided.

  I have to admit I find Hollywood’s hypocrisy on this issue to be more egregious than Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy because there are many reports surfacing now which state almost everyone in Hollywood–despite some of their protestations–knew what Harvey Weinstein was up to and did nothing, which allowed him to try to take advantage of more young girls hoping to make a name for themselves in the industry. Hollywood’s so-called morality and outrage over misogyny seems to be quite subjective and directly proportional to the political ideology of the person in question. 

  Some Hollywood elites, such as Rob Reiner, are actually claiming that what Donald Trump said is worse than what Harvey Weinstein did! How are we supposed to debate on a philosophical, intellectual, moral, or even a political level with people whose hearts have been so hardened to the point where they can actually make such an argument in the first place?

    It will break her cold heart to give it back…but she will do what a lot of the others are doing… giving to her favorite charity…my hunch? The Clinton Foundation and one of its many offshoots.

      Surely one of the 55 hedge funds posing as charities can use the scratch.

    Why Hilly is still in the “news” shows they’re (deep state) not done ‘using her’ ~ making her voice “count” for something … her lying is important to their their scheming. When her ratings tank they’ll probably ‘stage’ something to get people ‘to FEEL for her again.’ Emotional Manipulation.
    OT Corbett Report has an interesting informative vid out, here’s a clip:

      Thanks for sharing that video, it was interesting and I didn’t know about it!
      Hillary is still useful because there is still a significant segment of the population that does not understand the Electoral College and thinks the election was stolen so she is able to further divide the country and we know how they fall about chaos. Ordo ab chao…

    Let me ask from what moral credibility do Republicans speak when Dear Leader is the head of said party?

      They have none at this point and I think they know it, which is why they have remained silent on this issue. If they knew they could speak out they would be out there demanding the donations be returned but they are not.
      What this does do, however, is knock the Democrats down a bit from their “misogyny soapbox” because it takes the issue away from them.

        I don’t know… his donations would seem to be a pittance compared to what the Republicans gained with getting Dear Leader elected.

        A fair point but when the Democrats have been so outraged over what Trump said (and it was disgusting) I still think they lose the soapbox they were standing on if they are not consistent in being outraged over what Weinstein actually did.
