    Let us be fair on this one. What the hell, Bill Clinton got away with it. At the very least a Hollywood rapist deserves the same treatment illegal aliens and refugees get.

    Roman Polanski to Judge: Say I've Done My Time, and I'll Come Back

    Whether or not Roman Polanski does the perp walk anytime soon remains to be seen. The first thing that falls by the wayside is the old saw “We are a nation of laws.” That does not upset me too much because I never believed it anyway. What troubled me back when the Polanski rape was in the news is that Hollywood Lefties tried to establish immunity for their crimes.

    The underlying theme for Polanski’s support has always been that he is an artist; therefore, he is above punishment. Everything else was a smokescreen. Had an average guy who was known to vote Republican eluded the law for decades the Hollywood fruitcakes would be screaming for blood.

    When Hollywood liberals rushed to Polanski’s defense I was reminded me of Walter Sickert:


    Published yesterday, Cornwell's Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper, Case Closed points the finger of guilt at the Impressionist painter Walter Sickert, who was known to frequent London's seamy underbelly around the time of the murders.​

    Assuming Cornwell has it right, there is no doubt that Hollywood Lefties would insist that Jack the Ripper is above the law were he alive today simply because he was an artist.

    NOTE: Nobody in Hollywood ever said that Charles Manson was above the law after he murdered Polanski’s pregnant wife, Sharon Tate. Manson’s mistake was in not being an artist. Hollywood elitists would have been in a quandary had Manson been one of theirs. Consider this: If Polanski skates on jail time Manson should get out of prison. At least Manson served time. Let us see how the Lefties handle that one!

    I always got the impression that some show biz women defending Polanski would consider it an honor to be raped by a famous director. I think they see it as a good career move. A cynic might say that raping a tramp is not a crime.

    Here are a few articles that sprang up like weeds at the time. Most in Hollywood and Europe defended Polanski like he was the one who was raped.

    The Hollywood defense of Polanski was sickening. I seen the Goldberg statement and will never watch her again for that travesty. I will never understand why they felt the need to come to his defense.

    To FA_2Q: I think they were defending the myth that motion pictures are an art form more than they defended the rapist. It has always been important to be seen as artists. In short: MONEY.

    Art runs a close second to “the children” when it comes to parasites hustling tax dollars. Even if you believe motion pictures are an art form the government has no business forcing taxpayers to subsidize an “art” a majority of Americans want no part of.

    Bottom line: If movie producers fail to sell their product they should eat the loss, not lay it off on taxpayers before or after the fact.

    I won’t ask how much money movie makers pay in taxes when they produce a blockbuster. I have a hunch creative bookkeeping determines the tax liability for successes and flops. ​

    A Marionette’s Funeral

    Incidentally, the artist scam actually began with photography:

    Socialists had to show the world that their system of government was artist friendly; so mechanically generated motion pictures, and still pictures, became art for the masses. Labeling photography art was the best thing Socialist propagandists could come up with since a true artist cannot create simply to decorate a system of government even if he or she wanted to. Michelangelo’s superb eye-hand coordination may have flourished under the patronage system, but artists in every field thrive where the most individual liberties exist. And I doubt if any tax-dollar artist can create something like this:​


    For the life of me, I can’t see how any politician can justify supporting government artists. That’s what art was all about in the defunct Soviet Union and I don’t see any museums being voluntarily built to house the output of Communist-sponsored artists.

    In addition to the above, the so-called interpretative art community was brought onboard through the National Endowment for the Arts. The entertainment industry is considered the most important component of both the artistic community and the propaganda apparatus. In plain English the people that counted the most, and played ball from a Socialist/Communist point of view, are taken care of with enormous amounts of tax dollars.

    Being forced to fund the National Endowment for the Arts is just as offensive as is being forced to fund an alien religion. Aside from the political aspects, I doubt if any American (other than the folks who benefit financially from the Endowment) would choose to fund toe dancers, finger painters, and assorted con “artists.” The NEA is the one bureaucracy that most Americans find really offensive. Rather than me trying to convince anybody why the National Endowment for the Arts should be shut down let’s hear liberals tell us why the NEA is necessary government.

    Sad to say, Socialists can rest easy. No one’s snout is going to be summarily jerked out of the public feed tub. Not the National Endowment for the Arts, not the Dept. of Education, not the Ministry of Propaganda, not the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    Speaking of Big Bird:


    Fundraising drives are gratuities for the local on-camera people and technicians who do the shows; much like street performers passing the hat. To me, they should get their tips from the people who enjoy free advertising. Years ago I read that merchandising Big Bird of Sesame Street fame earns more money than all of the teams in the National Hockey League combined. The Bird’s franchise owners keep that money, but use the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (tax dollars) to advertise their product.​

    Why are people still agonizing over public funding of Big Bird? There has been no public funding of Big Bird for years. Do people demand public funding for Game of Thrones? They are both on HBO. Why the outcry over one and not the other?

    There is no controversy over Roman Polanski's guilt or innocence. He was tried and convicted. He ran, not to escape trial but to escape his sentence. Come back, go to prison like anyone else and do what you should do.

    UPDATE

    This is a Catch 22 that makes sense:

    A Los Angeles County judge has denied the latest effort by Roman Polanski to resolve his 40-year-old statutory rape case, saying that the filmmaker cannot be sentenced in absentia because he remains a fugitive from justice.​

    I am astonished to some movement in the right direction after more than 50 years of tax dollar parasites defining art —— along with numerous calls to shutdown tax dollar art:

    Having a lower estimation of the essentially unshiftable denizens of the NEH (and NEA) bureaucracy, I think Trump was right to zero the budgets for the Endowments and other such destructive, federally funded cultural initiatives (the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, for starters).

    But there is a pragmatic and a principled reason to favor the abolition of federal funding for the Endowments. The pragmatic reason is that they are captives of the cultural Left and no new Chairman, be he the reincarnation of Pericles, can do anything about that.

    XXXXX

    The Endowments are staffed by exactly the sort of bureaucratic swamp dwellers that Donald Trump came to Washington to drain.

    XXXXX

    Partisans of the Endowments, from the Right as well as the Left, oscillate between telling us what a derisory sum of money they command—hardly worth paying attention to, don’t you know—and insisting that the work of the arts and the humanities is absolutely essential to the future of civilization as we know it.

    Important it may be. But there is a pragmatic and a principled reason to favor the abolition of federal funding for the Endowments. The pragmatic reason is that they are captives of the cultural Left and no new Chairman, be he the reincarnation of Pericles, can do anything about that. The oft-told litany of pathological, anti-American garbage supported by the Endowments can never be effectively countered until the character of elite culture changes.

    XXXXX

    Because the Endowments cannot be mended, they should be ended.
