The Unpersoning of Louis C.K.

10 Nov

It is surreal to observe the sudden current moralistic Hollywood meltdown over sexual indiscretions, perhaps long overdue; that it comes at a time when Christians are becoming less moralistic (e.g. electing Donald Trump, and shrugging at Roy Moore), is extremely amusing.

The Left’s inability to practice grace and forgiveness, and leave ultimate judgment up to God, is nothing new, though; witness the fanaticism with which Nazi-hunters like Simon Wiesenthal and his ilk have always gone after old men rotting away in obscurity in places like Argentina and Brazil, arguing that there shouldn’t be any statute of limitations whatsoever on their Nazi-era misdeeds. Progs don’t forgive because progs aren’t orthodox Christians who actually are capable of believing in forgiveness and reconciliation, and much of Hollywood are of The Tribe – after all, they started Hollywood – and secularized liberal ones at that, who seek a social justice proggy ‘messianic kingdom’ instead of a Messiah any more – and we see what kind of hell their SJW ilk have created these days – and the lack of grace and forgiveness in their doxing campaigns, etc.

So pass the popcorn; watching Hollywood melt down is vastly more entertaining than any of the shit they’re producing these days. 😉

Uncouth Reflections

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

Over at New York Magazine’s Vulture, progressive media critic and RogerEbert.com editor Matt Zoller Seitz proclaims that “Louis C.K. is Done”:

Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, and Harvey Weinstein’s entire body of work has been retroactively contaminated by multiple accounts accusing them of sexually predatory behavior ranging from sexual harassment to rape. These stories change our perception of their art, whether we would like them to or not. This is not just unavoidable, it’s a necessary part of processing art and coming to terms with it.

When disturbing stories about respected artists come from the distant past, we treat them dispassionately, as just one detail among many. Present tense or near-present tense revelations hit us differently because we share the same world as the artist, breathe the same air, feed the same economy. We think of them as contemporaries, even as people we know. This kind of…

    Not only is the Hollywood left melting down, it’s eating its own.

    Kevin Spacey, love him or hate him, is one of the best actors of his generation. A 35 year career, down the tubes. It’ll be a while before he works again.

    There’s a bit of precedent for this. Remember Michael Richards, Kramer on “Seinfeld”? Remember his little N-word episode during a standup in 2006? The guy worked once — ONCE – in 7 years, from 2006 to 2013. It was SEVEN YEARS before he got any kind of prominent work again after that.

    I would think Spacey has more staying power than that. I think he needs to ride it out, lay low for a year or two, and for shit’s sake, don’t have sex with anyone.

    Louis C.K.? I don’t know. He very well might be done.

    Pretty sure Weinstein is.

    What I think’s funny is the hypocrisy of it all. Weinstein’s… um… activities were an open secret in Hollywood for at least 12 years back, and everyone looked the other way until… The Weinstein Company stopped having its great run. Now that Harvey can’t make anyone any money, he’s being thrown under the bus.

      That’s the fun part, watching Hollywood self-destruct.

      I’m enjoying watching Hollywood burn. 🙂

      I’ve enjoyed Spacey’s acting since the turn of the millennium, I quite agree.

      Yeah, and I don’t think I’ve seen Richards in anything since then.

      It took quite a while for Mel Gibson to be rehabilitated, but they realized he’s just too talented to banish forever…

    As much as i enjoy these people getting what they deserve, This all makes me intensely uneasy. These kinds of mental epidemics cant be controlled, and in the end will hurt us just as much as them.

      Yeah, I know. Eventually, there will be lynch mobs, and violence. That’s how this sort of thing always ends…

        The forces of Poz and evil will exploit this ruthlessly to advance thier agenda. More misandry, more anti-white, more censorship, more rules, more authoritarianism.

        That’s what the ‘toxic masculinity’ campaign is all about: trying to spin this as symptomatic of a problem within masculinity itself, to be worked on by indoctrination, etc.

    Spacey sexually assaulted children, he’s toast, particularly if more allegations come out, and you know they’re out there. And it would take a heart of stone not to laugh about what has happened to Louis C.K.

      Yeah, about Louis CK.

      I mean, there’s a lot of difference between “can I masturbate in front of you?” to grown women who went to the man’s hotel room; and a 26 year old actor picking up a 14 year old boy and putting him on a bed and making a drunken sexual advance.

      I’m sorry — when a famous comedian invites women to his hotel room during the late night or wee hours of the morning, what exactly do said women think they’re being invited there for? To hang out? To play tiddly winks? To talk about politics? To discuss the economic policies of Brunei? To get slowly drunk on expensive booze, then take a cab home?

      Um. YOU’VE BEEN INVITED THERE BECAUSE THE GUY WANTS TO DO SEXUAL THINGS WITH/TO YOU. HE WANTS SEX.

      Come on. Grown women are NOT this stupid. Women know damn well when a man is coming on to them. And if they don’t, then they need to figure it out.

        Yeah, there’s a lot of attention-whoring going on, and I have little respect for any Hollywood slut who has shown her goodies on-screen, engaged in serial-dating, etc., calling out Weinstein and C.K. and the rest. If you’re already profiting from your sexuality, you have no virtue to lose to a loser producer. If you’re just as vapid and amoral as everyone else in Hollywood, you have no virtue to lose. Most of the starlets are just attention-whoring, and I have no sympathy for them. Esp. ones who went to someone’s place, then bitched about it years later. Whores, the lot of them.

      I haven’t even bothered to pay attention to most of the Spacey allegations, but is anyone he’s alleged to have assaulted pre-pubescent? I tend to distinguish between actual perverts hitting on children from those hitting on adolescents / teenagers, because they are two different things, even if the law is so stupid it fails to distinguish between them.

      I don’t watch sports, but I remember someone saying when some sports hero got charged with assault, “Look, I can’t condone his off-field behaviour, but can I not cheer for him as a player, without having to regard that?” I think we ought to have a debate about sports, acting, politics, etc., in connection with all this. Must we stop watching Bill Cosby show reruns, just because of what he’s alleged to have done, even if he did all that? Do we have to purge sports of all athletes who behave sexually immorally? (Which would mean quite a few of them.)

      Or, do we let the law deal with law-breakers, and be able to separate what someone does in their spare time with how they entertain us, and not be as moralistic as the progs?

      There’s no grace or forgiveness with progs. Only revisionism, as we see with this movie where Spacey’s scenes are all being reshot with Christopher Plummer instead. That’s unprecedented, and kinda ridiculous.

        The sexual abuse of young men and boys in hollywood in many cases is particularly disgusting:

        Hollywood does deserve to be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah.

        Hollywood deserves to be destroyed for much of its immoral / amoral / demoralizing content alone, and their relentless prog propagandizing, and political activism, much less their personal character.

        One day, it will be…

    Liberals do indeed have a warped look on forgiveness. They want leniency for certain criminals – they don’t support the death penalty… but they just loooooove grilling rich guys eh?

    And you are 150% correct. This cluster f**k of sexual harassment claims is better than any movies Hollyweird is producing!!!!
