Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd discuss the artistic elite’s lame defense of Roman Polanski, who drugged and sodomized a 13-year old girl:
One good point: What if Roman Polanski had instead been Father Polanski? Would the artiste-elites have been so swift to defend the indefensible? No, I don’t think so, either.
A truly excellent point: Where were these same defenders of the artiste-elite’s claim to a special morality when Theo van Gogh was butchered by a devout Muslim?
Side Note: I’ve really come to like Simon and Chetwynd’s Poliwood: it’s fixed stage and single camera remind me of afternoon talk shows from when I was a child, when the host and guests would actually, shock and surprise, talk about the issues of the day.
