The Indefensibility of Defending Roman Polanski


This really is too much.

“The festival has been “unfairly exploited” to secure Polanski’s arrest over a case that is “all but dead,” said U.S. actress Debra Winger, president of the film event’s jury.

“Despite the philistine nature of the collusion that has now occurred, we came to honor Roman Polanski as a great artist,” Winger said in a statement read to reporters.

“We hope today this latest order will be dropped,” Winger said. “It is based on a three-decade-old case that is all but dead except for a minor technicality.””

Yes, and what is that “minor technicality”? Why, drugging and sodomizing a thirteen-year-old “minor,” that’s what the “technicality” is.

“Two weeks after Polanski plied her with Champagne and a Quaalude, Samantha Gailey appeared before an L.A. grand jury and recalled Polanski’s predatory behavior in a Mulholland Canyon home owned by Jack Nicholson.

The teenager’s troubling–and contemporaneous–account of her abuse at Polanski’s hands begins with her posing twice for topless photos that the director said were for French Vogue. The girl then told prosecutors how Polanski directed her to, “Take off your underwear” and enter the Jacuzzi, where he photographed her naked. Soon, the director, who was then 43, joined her in the hot tub. He also wasn’t wearing any clothes and, according to Gailey’s testimony, wrapped his hands around the child’s waist.

The girl testified that she left the Jacuzzi and entered a bedroom in Nicholson’s home, where Polanski sat down beside her and kissed the teen, despite her demands that he “keep away.” According to Gailey, Polanski then performed a sex act on her and later “started to have intercourse with me.” At one point, according to Gailey’s testimony, Polanski asked the 13-year-old if she was “on the pill,” and “When did you last have your period?” Polanski then asked her, Gailey recalled, “Would you want me to go in through your back?” before he “put his penis in my butt.” Asked why she did not more forcefully resist Polanski, the teenager told Deputy D.A. Roger Gunson, “Because I was afraid of him.””

Winger is far, far from the only leftard defending Polanski. Whoopie Goldberg admits Polanski raped the girl, “but it wasn’t rape-rape,” you see.

“Whoopi: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and when they let him out he was like “You know what this guy’s going to give me a hundred years in jail I’m not staying, so that’s why he left.””

How mind bogglingly twisted and abjectly disgusting can rationalization get? Goldberg has to have redefined rationalization into some sort of psychotic disorder. The guy gave alcohol and prescription drugs to a thirteen-year-old girl and then sodomized her.

Let’s play a game of, “what if”: What if, instead of leftist darling filmmaker Roman Polanski we were talking about Rush Limbaugh? Would these leftards be falling all over their reputations – what little there is left of them – to defend him? The hypothetical answers itself.

I can tell you this, if that had been my thirteen-year-old-daughter, we wouldn’t be having this discussion, because I would have introduced Polanski to a .357 magnum all those years ago.

Despicable and disgrace are the only two words I can come up with to describe this leftist insanity, but they aren’t nearly powerful enough.

UPDATE: Now there’s a card leftards can wear to display their profound moral deficiency.

And, the list of the morally reprehensible grows.

“ZURICH, Switzerland (CNN) — Woody Allen, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese have “demanded the immediate release” of fellow filmmaker Roman Polanski, who was arrested in Switzerland on a U.S. arrest warrant related to a 1977 child sex charge.

They were among 138 people in the film industry who signed a petition against the arrest.”

Woody I’m not surprised by, but I’m deeply disappointed by Scorsese.

“”The arrest of Roman Polanski in a neutral country, where he assumed he could travel without hindrance … opens the way for actions of which no one can know the effects,” said the signatories, who also included actresses Monica Bellucci and Tilda Swinton and directors David Lynch, Jonathan Demme, John Landis, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Wim Wenders.

In the United States, powerhouse movie producer Harvey Weinstein is trying to recruit more supporters for Polanksi.

“We are calling every filmmaker we can to help fix this terrible situation,” his company told CNN in a statement.”

Yes, it’s horrible that Polanski was arrested for evading justice for a crime that he plead guilty to. Considering the outrageous moral turpitude on display by the Hollyweirdos, I’m expecting to have to make more updates to this post.

UPDATE II – bing

The HuffPo is the latest Leftist mob to come out to bat for Polanski. However, to their credit, many readers aren’t buying it.

Tim Blair links to an informative piece about this.

UPDATE III: Phrench Phrog Philosopher BergnarDU-AhnrEE LevEE *cough, spit* leaves philosophy behind for madness.

“Apprehended like a common terrorist Saturday evening, September 26, as he came to receive a prize for his entire body of work, Roman Polanski now sleeps in prison.

He risks extradition to the United States for an episode that happened years ago and whose principal plaintiff repeatedly and emphatically declares she has put it behind her and abandoned any wish for legal proceedings.
Seventy-six years old, a survivor of Nazism and of Stalinist persecutions in Poland, Roman Polanski risks spending the rest of his life in jail for deeds which would be beyond the statute-of-limitations in Europe.”

Meanwhile, Ann Outhouse – a lawyer I don’t really detest – calls BergnarDU-AhnrEE out.

“Bernard-Henri Lévy, you present yourself as a philosopher. I would like to honor philosophy. Back up your petition with a philosophical argument that we can understand and critique.”

Don’t hold your breath, Ann. This guy’s a philosopher in his mind’s eye only. In reality, he’s an apologist for child sodomy.

UPDATE IV – bing

Quaaludes. Had never heard of them before today. Figured they were some kind of prescription drug that’d get you high, though. But anyway, I had a quick squiz on Wiki.


What a sick, meticulous, cunning, calculating predator.  Although it appears to be, this should not be a Left vs Right issue.

UPDATE V: The Undiscovered Quotation (Sorry for the oblique Star Trek reference):

I thought I had heard this years and years ago, but I just couldn’t be sure if I was remembering it right or not. Turns out I was.

Roman Polanski, 1979: Everyone wants to fuck young girls!”

Um, Roman, dude… there’s a vast chasm of difference between an eighteen/nineteen-year-old college coed and a thirteen-year-old seventh grader! There’s even more of a difference between actually, you know, falling into mutual lust with one and getting it on versus getting one drunk, high, and then raping and sodomizing her.

Yes, we’re all sorry about Sharon – some of us are old enough to remember her – and yes, you’ve put together some marvelous films – Chinatown is a favorite of mine – but none of that gives you Carte Blanche to have your way with our children.

Kate harding gets it right.

“Roman Polanski raped a child. Let’s just start right there, because that’s the detail that tends to get neglected when we start discussing whether it was fair for the bail-jumping director to be arrested at age 76, after 32 years in “exile” (which in this case means owning multiple homes in Europe, continuing to work as a director, marrying and fathering two children, even winning an Oscar, but never — poor baby — being able to return to the U.S.). Let’s keep in mind that Roman Polanski gave a 13-year-old girl a Quaalude and champagne, then raped her, before we start discussing whether the victim looked older than her 13 years, or that she now says she’d rather not see him prosecuted because she can’t stand the media attention. Before we discuss how awesome his movies are or what the now-deceased judge did wrong at his trial, let’s take a moment to recall that according to the victim’s grand jury testimony, Roman Polanski instructed her to get into a jacuzzi naked, refused to take her home when she begged to go, began kissing her even though she said no and asked him to stop; performed cunnilingus on her as she said no and asked him to stop; put his penis in her vagina as she said no and asked him to stop; asked if he could penetrate her anally, to which she replied, “No,” then went ahead and did it anyway, until he had an orgasm.

Can we do that? Can we take a moment to think about all that, and about the fact that Polanski pled guilty to unlawful sex with a minor, before we start talking about what a victim he is?”


UPDATE VI – bing

From the court testimonial, already linked to, but worth noting. Serious. This whatever was seriously calculating, manipulative, opportunist… a true predator.


Of course, no point getting this stage prop pregnant. Yet he knew to ask Samantha when her period was. This is not drunken debauchery. This is calculated. And when he wasn’t sure due to her response?

THAT’S why he sodomized her. Just to be safe.

Read the whole transcript, please. He drugged Samantha, felt her up, fooled around with her, started raping her, yet was “alert” enough to check when her period was. Being not sure, he decided the “safest” option was to sodomize her. Then came a knock on the door. He got up, she started dressing again, still afraid. Then he fobbed off the woman knocking, went back, finished off quickly in her anus, then had her walk to the car. He had her wait there crying, whilst “talking” to the other woman, then drove her home.

And yes, what the fuck was her mum thinking letting her daughter go there in the first place?

BTW, “there” was Jack Nicholson’s house, although conveniently he wasn’t there.

Has he had contact with Polanski since?

This was not some “poor me, I had a tough life” crap. This was the worst of the worst. And brilliant as he is, Polanski needs to pay for the vile, cold, calculated, pre-meditated crime he committed.

    If youve ever seen it its like the South Park episode “Cartman joins Nambla”, which in true South Park fashion is the “North American Man-Boy Love Association”.

    At the end the pedophile is trying to justify what he does using words like love and it just keeps cutting back to one of the kids going “dude you fuck kids”

    That should be all thats needed to shut Mr Polanskis supporters up.

    Lets put it another way, a group of Danish Nazis is showing more morals in dealing with one of its members kiddie fiddling than most of hollywood.

    “I said simply to him that I invite him to commit suicide.

    “That, I think, is the only real way out of it here,” he said.

  2. bingbing Says:

    Sorry, but this isn’t all but dead. It IS rape-rape. First degree rape. This isn’t some case of, “Oh, I was high on ecstasy pills, she was high, too, and we were both 25. But she regretted it the next day”

    No, this was a cold, pre-meditated, calculated, cunning, predatory attack on an essentially defenseless victim. Much like a sick movie script, Polanski thought this one through. He started out slowly with his child victim, plied her with alcohol and drugs, took indecent photos under false pretenses (although how one can justify taking such photos under ANY pretenses is beyond me [looking at YOU, Bill Henson]), then upped the anti, bit by bit, finally culminating in the child being sodomized.

    Sick shit.

    Gus, I’d use a .357 on a sick, dying dog. Polanski doesn’t deserve such humane treatment.

    Also, this begs the question. If this was so meticulously thought through and carried out, is this the only incident where Polanski committed such a vile act?

    To a layman, this appears doubtful, highly doubtful.

    Woody I’m not surprised by, but I’m deeply disappointed by Scorsese.


  4. nilk Says:

    I’d not actually seen this clip, although I’ve seen it referenced.

    I guess Roman and his defenders have taken a leaf out of the Bill Henson playbook – it’s all about the artiste, you see.

    It doesn’t matter that he was a 44year old man and she a 13 year old girl – he pleaded guilty to statutory rape, and anyway, her mum dropped her off there so must have known what was going to happen.

    It was consensual so it’s not his fault.

    Hmmm. And all those reports we read about how no is no, and date rape drugs? I guess since this occurred before they became common thought, then that means, again, that it’s not his fault.

    I don’t care if the girl (now a woman) has publicly forgiven him and wishes him to be left alone. I suspect that a lot of that may come from the publicity never letting up on her over the years.

    For that as well as the original assault also, Roman should have appropriate justice meted out.

  5. Kaboom Says:

    I simply cannot believe you right-wing paedophobes.

    Haven’t you noticed the social revolution, which commenced over 40 years ago?

    Everything considered “morally reprehensible” by the flannel-pyjamas-and-slippers crowd has become mainstream.

    The last bastion of conservative societal angst is clearly against those who like to engage in various activities with children. I mean, you just have to look at the vilification and approbation against Dennis Ferguson, who has done the crime and done the time.

    The rednecks and conservatives hound Ferguson from job to job, abode to abode. Does he not have a basic human right, having done the time, to be free of the societal hang-ups of a conservative society?

    We have enjoyed gay rights, multi-parent-family rights, same-sex parenting rights, drug rights, etc etc for decades. Why is the last pillar of conservatism, kiddy-fiddling rights, so hard to topple?

    The real victims are the perpetrators, not the so-called “victims”.

    The demonisation of Polanski simply proves that the conservatives don’t forgive. Ever.

  6. Carpe Jugulum Says:

    Polanski=Kiddie Fiddler

    Solution=High velocity tincture of lead.

    It’s easy really

    • bingbing Says:

      No, as I said to Gus, that’s the kind of humane treatment you’d met out on a sick, dying dog.

      Jail. And then he can experience what Samantha experienced.

    • bingbing Says:

      Problem is, the lefty fuck would probably like it. Ask for more. Give the man what he wants.

    • bingbing Says:

      He’s not dumb. Quite the opposite. He probably knew he would be arrested. He knows he’s gonna go soon. It’s probably his final desire to be bitch-raped by a butch pig.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      Yes you have a point there, perhaps some long term quality time with ‘Butch & Bubba’ at club fed playing spit roast the Hollywood beatch would be a better form of justice (sans lube of course).

  7. Red White and Blue Says:

    I hope and wish that all those idiots that are rushing to Polanski’s aid have a daughter or other female relative that suffers the same fate. Will they then be so eager to demand the attackers release or would they demand that he be put away forever. I have my snacks and am patiently waiting for act 2.

    • bingbing Says:

      Well, one wouldn’t wish that on anybody, especially the said victim/s. And knowing you personally, 1 you didn’t get up early, you stayed out late and 2 I think your point, if sober and lucid, would be closer to ‘how would they like it if it happened to THEIR daughter or relative? Would they be wearing free-the-pedophile badges then? No (the frickin’ idiots)’.
