WHOOPI GOLDBERG CLARIFIES POLANSKI COMMENTS
msnbc.com ^ | Thursday, October 01, 2009 9:16 AM | Ryan Osborn

Posted on 10/01/2009 10:11:40 AM PDT by BraveMan

This morning, Whoopi Goldberg called during the show to clarify a statement she made about the recent controversy surrounding Roman Polanski.

Goldberg had said, "It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape."

Whoopi wanted to clarify the comment and make it clear that she was talking about the legal charge against Polanski at the time.

Gee Whoopie,

Rape is a binary action.

The little girl was either raped or not.

End of discussion.

I called immediately! I wanted to comment on something I said about Goldberg the other day. I said she was the ugliest mutant I had ever seen, and that it looks like she hasn’t bathed in 50 years. I said that I could not comprehend ANY man ever touching her with a ten foot stick and that her mouth reminded me of a fouled toilet! So, just to be clear,...I stand by that statement!!

But, statutory rape or using the “date rape” drugs are as bad as physical forcible rape. So it’s still unclear to me why Whoopi would have said what she said in the first place. And in fact, he drugged her and forced himself on her. The statutory rape charge pending was part of a plea bargain, which he reneged on when he fled the country.

Nobody is talking much about how he ran away to avoid justice. Those charges, legally speaking, are very serious charges too.

"It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape."

The people who brought us hyphenated Americans now bring us hyphenated crimes.

This is simply lunacy on parade.

Whoopi and The View’s producers had a deluge of frightening phone calls and emails. Otherwise, she would have merely tossed out a bone tickling retort.

Maybe she is feeling the heat or the cold-shoulder from ToysRUs. I hope enough mad-as-hell parents of small girls and boys have renounced her callous comments to her sponsor.

Supposedly Goldberg is a grandmother - let’s hope her grandchild(ren) are not victimized by such a monster as Polanski.

Ugly witch!

"Whoopi and The View’s producers had a deluge of frightening phone calls and emails. Otherwise, she would have merely tossed out a bone tickling retort."

I watched the clip of her "retraction". It was the first words out of her mouth at the start of the show. She read from the teleprompter the statement verbatim (sans any Whoopisms), and then she moved to another subject, quickly.

Rape is a binary action.

That used to be true, but modernists, and in particular modern feminists, have turned rape into a fluid concept.

Go to a party with the absolute intention of getting drunk and high and hooking up with some guy? Don't worry, if it turns out it wasn't a guy you are particularly enamoured of, you can claim rape the next day.

A soon to be ex-boyfriend pitches some heavy woo, makes you forget about breaking up with him, and gets you back in the sack but 3 days later he misses a lunch and you remember why you wanted to dump him? Break up with him and then claim it was rape.

We have taken a huge step backwards in our country by letting hard fast rules run roughshod over common sense.

Forcible rape is clearly forcible rape. Statutory rape may or may not be as bad as forcible rape depending upon the actual circumstances.

A 19 year old college freshman who has sex with his 16 year old girlfriend can be charged with statutory rape in some states (and in the past having to face her father).

But a circumstance like that is clearly different from a middle aged man getting a 13 year old girl drunk and forcing himself on her.

This was "rape rape", and not a teenager caught by the letter of the law. And for this "rape rape" he needs to go to "prison prison".

“”It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape.” “

Can we adapt that to Obama?

"rape rape"? ...... what a guy

Roman Polanski: What Did He Do?

Last year, transcripts of Geimer's 1977 grand jury testimony, which resulted in six charges against Polanski, were made public.

The transcripts include shocking details of 13-year-old Geimer testifying that the 43-year-old Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude before performing oral, vaginal and anal intercourse on her, despite her demands to "keep away."

So this is soft rape?

She said “no” but “didn’t really mean it”?

She had a sexual history so he wasn’t “violating her”?

“He’s something else but I don’t believe he is a President-President.”

And he’s certainly not an American-American (if he is in fact an American at all).

Perhaps Polanski skipped because he heard what happens to those convicted of sexual assault in prison.
