Posted on 12/05/2011 11:50:10 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper
If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.
Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him "what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry." Weiss has pleaded not guilty.
On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for Sesame Street, was arraigned on charges of coercing a child to engage in sexually explicit conduct in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.
Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a casting agent in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphys credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like "Bad News Bears," "The School of Rock," "Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and the forthcoming "Three Stooges.

WOW! Who knew. I thought this behavior was only indigenous to State College PA.
Oh please, these are gifted brilliant artists. You know damn well that is different. /s
Anyone see HUGO? OMG what a disgusting display of narcissism.
Anywhere you find homosexuals congregating, it’s to hide their most liberated members.
Was it rape rape, or was it just rape?
I think the child actors are often violated without even being touched. Like Dakota Fanning acting as though she were being raped in a movie a couple of years ago, or kids like the one in 2 1/2 Men being spoken to and spoken around with all the gutter sexual talk.
These “actors” are real children and it should be a crime to use them in such a way.
"I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry. ... It's the big secret," Feldman said.
Obviously this lets other organizations who have historically swept abuse under the carpet completely off the hook.

Think of all those Democratic party contributors wishing for soap on a roap, oh the joy of Karma.
Read this book for more detailed information based on just one well documented investigation.
Shirley Temple experienced it. It’s been going on forever.
The Penn State was a warm-up IMO. I think there's a bigger one coming and it will involve one or more famous actors. This story is not it; it will likely involve a maga-star.
I don't like it to happen, but something's got to give to remove power from these people.
No way will kids not be used with all the BS in Hollywood. SitComs will always abuse the kids.
>>Obviously this lets other organizations who have historically swept abuse under the carpet completely off the hook.<<
No but it sure does make them far from an anomaly. And the problem is not that there are other organizations, but rather when one group is singled out.
In a bit of irony the “elite” have been trying to norm sodomy which will have the affect of taking the stigma away from the accusers. So if you are now a gay adult man you can make all the accusations you want of any old pervert you had contact with back in days of youth.
“Another child star from an earlier era agrees that Hollywood has long had a problem with pedophilia. When I watched that interview, a whole series of names and faces from my history went zooming through my head, Paul Peterson, 66, star of The Donna Reed Show, a sitcom popular in the 1950s and 60s, and president of A Minor Consideration, tells FOXNews.com. Some of these people, who I know very well, are still in the game.
Well, now we know why Hollywood has raced as fast as it can towards the destruction of the family, the sexualization of young children, and the total removal of sexual mores. It’s to provide fodder for the deviates in this industry.
There is always an agenda behind this stuff.
Sunshine only burns when there is a lack of transparency. Full and complete openness is the solution.
I think about that myself, everytime I see these movies. Actors “pretending” to do things any decent person can’t do without being affected. I don’t watch movies with scenes like that, I consider it prostitution- being paid to commit sexual acts. And to subject children to it is horrendous.
Several years ago, a Nicole Kidman movie called “Birth” came under a lot of scrutiny for this. The thing is, the scrutiny started AFTER the child had already been molested.
Let me guess. It’s exclusively homos on young boys. So it’s homosexual perversion. Am I tracking right here or is pedophilia different than homosexual assualt?
Hey, look at us. We make films. We make dreams come true. Pat us on the back because we are just so wonderful. Our pride in ourselves has no limit.
Every now and then they have commercials regarding the old Shirley Temple films. My impression is that the only people who might be interested in them would be pedophiles.

Exactly. Also, destruction of the family is a precursor for achieving the communist takeover.

There'll be much rejoicing?
Nonsense. Do you think there were enough pedophile in the United States to make Shirley Temple the huge star she was? Most of them are cute movies with, compared to today’s schlock, intelligent plots and good writing and acting. My daughters enjoy the ones we get from Netflix, and I don’t find them disagreeable if I happen to be in the room.
Penn State was the tip of the iceberg in college sports.
This is the tip of Mount Everest in Hollywood.
“I have always thought that the gay movement would jump the shark when a high-profile pedophilia scandal erupted in Hollyweird.”
“Gay” is still “Ok” because we haven’t reclaimed the language (for one reason). PC = Cultural Marxism
I got this from another FReeper, and it’s brilliant: (paraphrased) ‘The gays are the biggest homophobes - insisting homosexuality be referred to as gay.’
The other thing about language, is exact language, or, “a finer point”, if you will.
This IS pedophilia, no doubt...but as another poster pointed out...what else is it?
HOMOSEXUAL, MAN-ON-BOY SEX = PEDERASTY.
In fact, I believe there’s a sigh of relief in their dark hearts when a FEMALE child is found to be abused...takes the focus off the homo part, helping them to keep to the shadows.
It’s easy to see. Watch what happens when this is discussed around the water cooler. When you point out the difference btwn pedophilia and pederasty (in most of these cases) -COUNT the number of surprised looks. LISTEN to the attempts at minimization - if not outright denial following the surprise...it is most upsetting.
Are you kidding? You must be a man because I LOVE the old Shirley Temple movies. I've been having to hold myself back from buying that heavily advertised set of Shirley Temple films I keep seeing on the commercials.
Isn't it refreshing to see a commercial that isn't pharmaceutical/medical/disease/health-related? So rare these days.
“SitComs will always abuse the kids. “
I don’t mind kids acting. For instance, the Cosby show, I don’t think the kids were damaged doing that. At least not officially on the set.
But when they are put in “sexual” “traumatic” or “abusive” situations, it makes my blood boil.
I think of those teen boys made to pretend they are gay and flirting and finally having some sort of sex on “Glee” recently. I do not watch the show, I just read about it. Criminal. The parents, the director, the screenwriters, all of them, absolutely CRIMINAL.
The more things change...
Anyone looking for porn in Shirley Temple movies has to have a great imagination. ;-)
Agree with almost all the comments on this thread - we’ve known this for a long time - it’s just that we’ve only peeked under the rock instead of lifting up the rock and seeing all the creepy crawlies crawling around under there. Time to lift that rock up once and for all!
Hollyweird and pedophilia have gone hand in hand for decades. DECADES.
Anyone sending their child to Hollywood should know the old saying about sleeping your way to the top also applies to the kids.
I wrote that it was my impression. Buy the series if you want, defend the whole era in which they appeared, but you still won’t change my impression.
Its Boys & Girls.
You sleep your way onto the screen in Hollyweird and TV.
How was Melanie Griffith when he made that near porn film with Don Johnson the something experiment and had an affair with him, 16? maybe.
She is also accused by another actress of having a cocaine fueled orgy with her and dad when this girl was 12.
It is endemic. Boys and girls, not just homosexual either.
I think the poster was implying that the only reason anyone would watch one was to fantasize about sex with a pre-pubescent girl. However, as I said, that’s idiotic ... like saying that was the only reason people read Dickens’ sentimental tales in their day. One either appreciates the tap-dancing or not, of course, but many of Shirley Temple’s early movies are cute comedies or involving dramas on their own terms, as well as (up to 80 years later) interesting as period pieces.
As a generalization, I find movies from the 1930s and 1940s much more intelligent and adult (as opposed to adolescent) than almost anything made today. For one thing, they tended to realistically depict the bad consequences to children of adult irresponsibility.
Yes it is.
Did you read about NYC’s new sex-ed curriculum?
It encourages this at 11.
Post #14 "Shirley Temple experienced it. Its been going on forever."
Dontcha feel all warm and fuzzy now about the Shirley Temple movies. If Shirley Temple "experienced it," well, it was worth it wasn't it? Hell, buy dozens of the TV offer and send them to all your friends. Tell them how much you enjoy the movies, even if she was abused. It's only entertainment anyway, it doesn't matter if she was abused.
Thanks. I’m glad you noticed it to.
I guess what struck me was the idea that this guy should quite naturally feel depressed because his works had supposedly ceased to exist, and everyone should identify with that mindset.
Never-mind the lowly average working stiff that does an admirable job day in and day out for forty-five years, who has no legacy whatsoever. Never-mind the housewife who has only raised children, and has no artistic relics laying around that can be adored by the fawning media sycophants.
This movie was advertised as a science fiction tail about a animatron, but the animatron’s single redeeming feature, was writing out the name of the man who thought he should have been recognized far more than he was.
The take-away was that we should all realize how much Hollywood has done for us. After all, the entertainment industry has been so munificent to us knaves.
If the industry had even an ounce of class and truly understood the message of this film, it would have killed the project before the first frame had been shot, and those driving the project would have been dismissed for all time, as unfit to present views to a public audience.
Labeling an impression as "idiotic" is idiotic.
When I first saw the trailer I also thought there was a science fiction aspect to it. I think it would be a huge stretch to label this film as being science fiction. I did notice that French society was pretty rough on its orphans though.
A normal person looking at a Shirley Temple film sees a little girl. A pedophile sees something else. That’s reality.
Everytime you see a kid on TV or in the movies, they are probably being sexually abused. IMO.
Why do you think so many of them turn into trainwrecks like Lindsay Lohan etc.
“You wanna be famous?” the pervert asks and later “You wanna stay famous?”
I am. And you can search through my 36,000 plus posts and will never see the phrase "Are you kidding" You must be a woman."
It's a pretty stupid thing to say and provides nothing of value to the conversation.
Isn’t it amazing who the media elites can slander without any tinge of guilt. Bet this goes over well in France.
There was a 1930’s film called “Child Bride” and there are several minutes of naked 12 year old girl in it. How much did they pay those depression era parents? “Sexploitation”
She did go on to be in at least one film with Shirley Temple... same child abuse ring probably.
There are tons more recent examples I bet.
What is in “Hugo” that is getting it brought into this thread?
