Here’s Why the Harvey Weinstein Story Is Important for All of Us

The list of allegations about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse continues to grow. What can we learn from this horrifying revelation about Hollywood corruption?

Weinstein’s abuse was a cultural problem.

Employees at The Weinstein Company say there was a “system” in place to give the film mogul time alone with young actresses. So far, there have been at least 23 accusations of sexual harassment and four allegations of sexual assault.

Harassment is not just a left or right issue.

It’s a universal truth that people will abuse power and manipulate others to get what they want.

We all need to watch for hypocrisy and corruption.

Liberal politicians who received funding from Weinstein are speaking against him now. But when did they know that Weinstein had a reputation as a sexual predator?

“All these after-the-fact denunciations from celebrities and politicians. We have to be careful because some of them are meaningless,” Glenn said.

GLENN: This is the Berlin wall of sexual politics. Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, they have all come out as victims of Harvey Weinstein's disgusting behavior. The situation has gone from really bad to really much worse. In almost a week, allegations have mounted that Weinstein sexually harassed an untold number of women over the last 30 years. Sunday night, Weinstein was fired from his own company. Yesterday, his wife, Georgina Chapman announced she's leaving him. He had just said, she's standing with me 100 percent. She said, no, you're a disgusting pig.

The couple have two children. God bless them. Four and seven.

Yesterday, the New Yorker published a story that dwarfed the original New York Times piece that last week had even more appalling allegations in it. The New Yorker -- the New Yorker story came out, and it is -- it's stunning.

But NBC decided not to run that story. The story quotes two women who say they were raped by Weinstein and four others who described being touched by Weinstein without their consent.

Four additional women say he exposed himself or masturbated in front of them. Sixteen former and current employees at Weinstein's company say Weinstein had a system of preying on young actresses by inviting them for business meetings, then dismissing all the other employees from the meeting so he could be alone with the actress.

How does a system happen when no one around knows of his behavior and everyone is so shocked?

All of the victims told the New Yorker that they were scared of Weinstein's retaliation. Fearing he would run their lives.

Weinstein released a statement denying the rape and retaliation accusations, ending it with, Mr. Weinstein is hoping that he's making enough progress that he'll be given a second chance.

Only in Hollywood. Now that his ship is sinking so fast, former President Obama, Hillary Clinton are feigning their surprise that their fundraising pal is actually a creep. Obama, whose daughter Malia interned at Weinstein's Company last year said, Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein. Any man who demeans and degrades such women in any fashion like this, needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status. Hillary says she's shocked and appalled.

Yes, but were they disgusted, shocked, or appalled, when Weinstein was signing those Democratic checks? No.

All these after the fact denunciations from celebrities and politicians -- we have to be careful because some of them are meaningless. This Weinstein saga has been made into a left and right issue, and it is not. But one thing is being made crystal clear about the liberal elite, and that is respecting women and protecting them from predators like Weinstein is top priority.

Just not when the checks are still rolling in.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
