So Was Harvey Swinestein A Red Rat Like Trumbo?


We have taken notice of ‘celebrity’ sex-pests in the past..

Slimy Soros Declares Admiration For Shamed Sex-Pest! 

…like Al Franken, but left it to larger media outlets to follow Harvey Weinschwein’s fate.

However, today’s news leads me to comment further!

Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein wallowed in self-pity at his sentencing, comparing the #MeToo movement to the communist-era blacklisting hysteria….Weinstein likened his trial to the mid-century communist scare that led to the blacklisting of stars and politicians.

Weinschwein thus hopes, undoubtedly in vain, to enlist the sympathy of the many powerful leftists who are still in denial about the very real communist threat post-WW2.

“I’m worried there is a repeat of the blacklist there was in the 1950s, when lots of men like myself, Dalton Trumbo, one of the great examples, did not work, went to jail because people thought they were communists,” he went on.

But his pathetic whine reveals what I certainly didn’t know, that he, like so many other Hollywood undesirables, was personally linked to the Un-American elements whom brave people like Senator Joe McCarthy and HUAC sought to expose.

…when it was revealed his Hollywood fans were producing an idolatrous movie to honour the dirty red slug.

….

Trumbo supported Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and North Korea’s Kim Il-Sung. He condemned Martin Luther King, Jr., for not being a true revolutionary. Yet, he is depicted in the film as just a family-friendly socialist and defender of the First Amendment in the film…

Q: In what way does the movie hide or gloss over Trumbo’s Red record?

A: All of his heavy-duty propaganda and activities on behalf of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party are omitted. So is his vigorous support of Lenin, Adolph Hitler (during the Hitler-Stalin pact) and North Korea’s Kim Il-sung after his aggressive attack against South Korea in 1950. Even his membership in the American CP, which he eventually bragged about, is ignored….

The villains in the movie, incidentally, are not the party members who worked covertly—and relentlessly—to turn Hollywood over to Moscow but the anti-Communist community who fought the Red conspiracy in the film industry—and won, at least for a time. Columnist Hedda Hopper, John Wayne, labor leader Roy Brewer, the House Un-American Activities Committee, the Motion Picture Alliance and other opponents of the Communists come in for a severe beating.

Q: You say he was a “Stalinist” and a member of the Communist Party, facts that you argue are fundamentally ignored by the movie. But how do we know he was a party member?

A: There is no question about his CP membership. In those famous 1947 hearings, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) submitted material proving beyond a doubt that he was a party member, though Trumbo and nine other screenwriters and directors refused to respond to questions about party membership..

….Trumbo finally admitted to his biographer, Bruce Cook, that he joined the party in 1943, and that “I might as well have been a Communist ten years earlier. But I’ve never regretted it. As a matter of fact, it’s possible to say I would have regretted not having done it…” Hollywood’s Despicable Hero Dalton Trumbo

The red rat went to jail all too briefly, for his arrogant refusal to come clean in the hearings.

But that was much less than he deserved.

As for Schweinstein, I’d say he has got what he deserved.

A pity Trumbo didn’t.
