In an interview, Weinstein said that people generally misunderstand what happened to Polanski at sentencing. He's not convinced public opinion is running against the filmmaker and dismisses the categorization of Hollywood as amoral. "Hollywood has the best moral compass, because it has compassion," Weinstein said. "We were the people who did the fundraising telethon for the victims of 9/11. We were there for the victims of Katrina and any world catastrophe."
We shouldn't be surprised; this is a direct fallout from those idiot bumper stickers that say Democrats Care. 'Nobody else does, just us.' Apparently nobody else raised money/donated for 9/11 victims(damn few in Hollywood seem to give a crap about the troops fighting the enemy); and nobody but HOLLYWOOD PEOPLE were there after Katrina and whatever the Approved Cause de Jure is.
Oh, and Weinstein? Would have been nice if some of that wondrous compassion could have been given over to the troops keeping the enemy from raping you and cutting off your head, instead of you pissing down their back damn near from day one.
