What is the use in being a celebrity if you cannot have a stupid cause to promote? The latest cause is one we warned you about. It's the let Roman Polanski go free group. Apparently all the hip people have signed. It sort of a status symbol, I guess. Like getting a table at Nobu. See the petition below:
Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese: Free Roman Polanski!
Because so many prominent members of the arts have come together to free a child rapist, we must give this illustrious group a name.
With all due apologizes to the great continent, how about we call this group A.F.R.I.C.A.? As in "Artists For Raping Innocent Children in America".
Did you see Woody Allen had the audacity to sign? Shouldn't he, you know, know? Woody Allen signing onto a petition to free a child rapist should have the same effect as Charles Manson writing to David Berkowitz's parole board.
Here is good-old Roman in 1979 talking about his case:
"If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls! "
Boys and Girls, keep your eyes on what's relevant in this case: They are going to tell you the judge was a bad guy, that the prosecutors messed up, and that Polanski deserves sympathy.
But what they won't tell you is the truth, which is the following: Polanski is a statutory rapist who fled the U.S. rather than serve his sentence.
Let him serve his time and if he is a non-citizen, have his child- molesting ass deported to a country like France who accept his type with open arms.
Than he can make another movie. Perhaps an updated "Midnight Express".
