Roman Polanski drugged and raped a thirteen year old girl, was convicted, but fled before sentencing because he didn't like how the judge may or may not sentence him. Now that he has been arrested in Zurich, Switzerland 31 years later, Polanski is using the justice system to avoid being extradited back to the United States to be judged on his flight from justice.
That is the issue at present, but detractors of our legal system, as usual, want to speak to other issues, not the issue of law.
What is worse is than the fact that some of those detractors ignore this issue and they detour further into areas that they are wholly incapable of understanding, they do so from positions of influence. Or are they incapable?
Whoopi Goldberg said on The View, “It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and when they let him out he was like ‘This guy’s gonna give me 100 years. I’m not staying,” she added.
Later in the programme, she added: “We’re a different kind of society, we see things differently. Would I want my 14-year-old having sex? Not necessarily, no.”
ACORN has shown a pattern of illegal use of federal funds (for housing for the poor) in the political arena. The electoral fraud, racketeering, tax evasion, child sex laws and whore house advice are side issues and, though, still representative of ACORN, they are not the issue, just the catalyst for the current headlines concerning ACORN.
Whoopi Goldberg on The View said, "Here is the gist of what happened. ACORN is a group that is a group of community organizers. They have several places across the country and they work with poor folks and disenfranchised folks for housing, for medical health and all kinds of stuff. The Republicans have always felt that there was something a little off about ACORN and no one could actually put their finger on it. So now two young filmmakers who say that they're conservatives went out to show the kinds of people that are working for ACORN and to give credence to the ideas that, you know, this is not a good organization."
Again, addressing the core issue about federal funding of ACORN is ignored to speak of the things that Goldberg thinks are good about ACORN and she may well purport in the future that in the ACORN case that there was no real fraud-fraud in assisting a potential under the legal radar whore house in illegally immigrating underage girls to serve a prostitutes. That the whore house will evade taxes needed for ACORN's poor is mere bonus for the pimp.
That Republicans do not like, trust or believe ACORN is a given, but that is not the issue. No where does Ms. Goldberg address the 175 groups set up to filter, hide and move taxpayer dollars, paid to ACORN for housing, to be used for political means. Is Goldberg incapable of understanding and addressing these issues or is she turning a blind eye to an organization that supports her political agenda?
I choose Goldberg as an illustrative point of purposeful political denial to address a world and political view detrimental to the core values of the United States of America. One may take virtually any issue, such as illegal immigration, taxation, states rights and others and find that the core issues have not and will not be addressed, because those core issues do not fit the liberal narrative. The Constitution, laws and facts are inconvenient truths that block the desires of liberal groups. The same Constitution, laws and facts that stand between political power and liberals must be denied.
Polanski is guilty of one charge and is now charged with flight and evading sentencing. ACORN has been found guilty of many things, but is now being investigated and charged with illegal use of taxpayer funds.
Remember, William Jefferson Clinton was impeached, not for receiving oral sex from a young lady entrusted into his charge, but for lying to a Grand Jury. And it doesn't matter if the young lady and her parents thought that W. J. Clinton was a nice guy and shouldn't suffer.
UPDATE: Webutante has an excellent post about the Polanski affair and his forced affair with a 13 year old girl.
