An Open Letter From Dylan Farrow (Alleged Victim of Woody Allen)
Kristoff Blog of NY Times ^ | 2/1/2014 | Dylan Farrow

Posted on 02/01/2014 2:52:12 PM PST by RummyChick

What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house.

Do I believe Allen is a predator.

Yes.

He might be, but there is more to this story than is visible to the naked eye.

Woody is a strange dude, but so is Mia...and I have doubts about Dylan.

Fame is a drug and those who are on it, seek it, or are merely close to it are difficult to assess.

As Fox Mulder would say "the truth is out there."

I think Mia’s reaction seemed earnest.

I never thought Woody was particularly interesting. He strikes me as a weirdo. Not a huge leap to pervert.

It’s hard to imaging how it must feel to be her, having brought forward all these very painful memories about what he did, only to see him worshipped and adored by his peers. She’s certainly not along in not having her abuser held accountable, but few have to endure such public pain. Not that it matters much to any victim, as it’s all painful.

Bravo to her for being steadfast in exposing this bastard for what he is.

I never liked any of his dumb movies.

Powerful letter from Dylan Farrow.

Of course it's too late to prosecute Woody Allen and the he-said/she-said aspect of the situation makes it impossible to do more than offer Dylan Farrow our sympathy. Well, there is one other thing we can do: to see Woody Allen as what he is: a child molester.

He should be shunned by Hollywood but we know that won't happen as show business is rife with leftist hedonists that are loath to 'judge' a big star such as Woody Allen because many have their own dirty little secrets they carefully hide.

Perhaps Woody Allen, at 78, will now go quietly into retirement and out of respect for Dylan Farrow, Hollywood will cease to give him awards.

Sure they will.

But it is a great injustice to be accused of being a monster, if you are not.

“That he got away with what he did to me haunted me as I grew up.”

I’m not all that quick to believe stuff I read on the internet but if Allen did do what this accuser claims he did he won’t get away with it forever. A terrible threat awaits him in the Face of God.

This story had been verified by several witnesses over 20 years ago. It occurred in the early 1990s. It was covered up by the media during the Woody Allen Mia Farrow breakup.

There are several instances of people in the entertainment industry abusing young children. They are almost always covered up by the Media.

While you always have to be careful with these charges, this has the ring of truth, and I think Allen is a deviant who should be stripped of all awards.

She shows a lot of courage especially when she calls out Woody’s Hollywood pals by name.

“What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?”

I don't know that I agree that he gets a pass because he a libtard/socialist. I think it's more that Hollywood believes 'artists' are above the standards that apply to us untalented nobodies. I think that's why Polanski gets a pass as well. I will say that if he were a conservative, they'd throw him under the bus as they did Mel Gibson; so there is something to being a leftist that adds invulnerability to some sickos.

Ronan, not Dylan (daughter), is the Frank Sinatra look alike son. Dylan wrote this letter about Woody Allen.

Do Woody and Sun Yee, is that her name?, have any children together? I pray not.

I would recommend people read the following articles:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/01/27/the-woody-allen-allegations-not-so-fast.html

http://www.classicalite.com/articles/5654/20140131/fact-check-woody-allens-rape-case-gets-murky-as-mia-farrow-and-dylan-malone-lay-questionable-claim.htm

Some relevant bits:

“Did this event actually occur? If we’re inclined to give it a second thought, we can each believe what we want, but none of us know. Why does the adult Malone say it happened? Because she obviously believes it did, so good for her for speaking out about it in Vanity Fair. Her brother Ronan believes it happened, so good for him for sticking up for his sister in 140 characters or less. They’ve both grown up in a household where this scenario has been accepted as indisputable fact, so why shouldn’t they believe it?

I know I’m treading a delicate path here, and opening myself up to accusations of “blaming the victim.” However, I’m merely floating scenarios to consider, and you can think what you will. But if Mia’s account is true, it means that in the middle of custody and support negotiations, during which Woody needed to be on his best behavior, in a house belonging to his furious ex-girlfriend, and filled with people seething mad at him, Woody, who is a well-known claustrophobic, decided this would be the ideal time and place to take his daughter into an attic and molest her, quickly, before a house full of children and nannies noticed they were both missing.

Even people who give Woody the benefit of the doubt and defend him on the internet are often confused on a few points. Some mistakenly say that the court found him “not guilty” of the molestation charges. The fact is there was never such a ruling because he was never charged with a crime, since investigative authorities never found credible evidence to support Mia’s (and Dylan’s) claim.”

And the other bit:

“A heavy piece of fact seems to have broken off of a much larger and buried truth. However, on April 20, 1993, a sworn statement was entered into evidence by family doctor, Dr. John M. Leventhal.

“[Dr. Leventhal] swears Dylan’s statements at the hospital contradicted each other as well as the story she told on the videotape,” claims Allen friend Robert B. Weide, in a report for The Daily Beast.

Citing Leventhal, Weide recants that the doctor said, “Those were not minor inconsistencies. She told us initially that she hadn’t been touched in the vaginal area, and she then told us that she had, then she told us that she hadn’t.”
Leventhal, later in his sworn statement, also recounted: “Even before the claim of abuse was made last August, the view of Mr. Allen as an evil and awful and terrible man permeated the household. The view that he had molested Soon-Yi and was a potential molester of Dylan permeated the household...it’s quite possible—as a matter of fact, we think it’s medically probable—that [Dylan] stuck to that story over time because of the intense relationship she had with her mother.”

In conclusion is Woody Allen’s relationship with Soon-Yi pretty odd... yup, kind of creepy too. But the “facts” about the alleged molestation of Dylan are just not credible.

Mia Farrow is nuts... and I would be too if my adoptive daughter later ran off with my ex-lover. But ultimately she has poisoned the well and there’s simply no way to know the truth and there’s certainly no evidence whatsoever to back up Mia Farrow’s claims.

Yancy

Nobody wants to believe sexual abuse victims at first. Nobody.

They end up having to tell their story over and over. Even people who supposedly love them, family members and friends, will hesitate to believe them in the beginning.

Some will never accept that their relative/friend/acquaintance or famous person, is a sexual predator, no matter how much proof is given.

The only possible explanation I have for this is that it might be some sort of "Normalcy bias" in response to something shocking?

God Bless her for speaking out. It can't be easy for her to do this- Especially since she is dealing with someone from the powerful Hollywood crowd.

Sadly, most of them could care less about what happened to her, since they are morally bankrupt in the first place.

“In 2011, Feldman told “Nightline” that a “Hollywood mogul” who abused Haim is to blame for the late actor’s death. He said pedophilia was and still is Hollywood’s biggest problem and darkest secret.”

The stuff coming out of Hollywood, which is corrupting and destroying childhood-—is intentional.

Why would they promote and glorify a child rapist-—because they are child rapists or think sodomy/rape is “Good” even for the children.

They are Lucifereans.

Of course the Polanski girl was ancient ( all of 13yrs old ) compared to Dylan Farrow.

Doctor Cites Inconsistencies In Dylan Farrow’s Statements

http://www.nytimes.com/1993/05/04/nyregion/doctor-cites-inconsistencies-in-dylan-farrow-s-statements.html

From Wiki:

During the subsequent custody battle involving Farrow’s and Allen’s three children, Farrow filed charges that Allen had molested their daughter Dylan, then seven years old. Allen has adamantly denied the charges. A doctor concluded that Dylan “either invented the story under the stress of living in a volatile and unhealthy home or that it was planted in her mind by her mother” because of the inconsistent presentation of the story by Dylan.

I chose to respond to your post, because you mentioned Woody is a strange dude. You don’t judge him blamed on that, but you did mention it. I think it’s an important fact that we need to be aware of kids and the tell-tale signs of abuse.

The adult men in their lives don’t have to be strange dudes. They don’t have to be outwardly deviant. In many instances, the only tip-off will be the behavior of the child in your presence. Don’t turn a blind eye to it.

If a child is doing inappropriate things with other kids, there’s a reason. Kid’s don’t become predators without some cause. Someone introduced them to these behaviors.

Now I’m not talking about normal curiosity. I think a fair amount of kids go through that. In certain settings this can get a bit out of hand. But if a child is making moves on another in an adult manner, we should ask ourselves why.

I don’t want parents or other adults in these children’s lives suspected unreasonably, so we shouldn’t go off half-cocked. We shouldn’t ignore troubling behaviors either.

I’m not an expert on this, so I’m not an expert on what the best reaction should be. I just don’t think we should dismiss it out of hand, because the damage being done if something truly is happening, can really devastate a kid’s life.

This girl sounds sincere. How do you know now? A medical exam in the day could have provided a bit of insight.

Adults who prey on children up through 17 years of age, are the filth of society. Bill Clinton going after Monica Lewinsky was a beast of a man. He about 52 and her 20, what a despicable person. And his wife, covering up as much as she could..., never would I ever consider her for a leadership position.
