Whoopi Goldberg must have a pretty odd idea about what rape is, or - like Obama - she just leaps to completely wrong conclusions without a shred of fact. Said Whoopi about the Roman Polanski rape case:
I know it wasn't rape-rape. I think it was something else, but I don't believe it was rape-rape.She further apologizes for his oral, anal and vaginal assault on a 13-year-old by saying:
He pled guilty to having sex with a minor and he went to jail, and when they let him out [on bail] he said 'You know what, this guy's [the judge] going to give me 100 years in jail. I'm not staying'. And that's why he left.Oh hell yes... that explains everything. Like he wasn't a fugitive running from the law or anything illegal like that... He just "left".
Whoopi's logic: Since he didn't grab the little girl out of a schoolyard, take her to an abandoned quarry or some such place and commit oral, anal and vaginal sexual assault on her, leaving her naked, bleeding and half dead, it must not be rape rape.
What he did do was invite her to his home for a photo shoot, plied her with champagne and quaaludes, and then forced oral, anal and vaginal sex on the girl.
Of course he fled. In those days, a child rapist sent to jail would not live long. In those days, even convicted criminals had some scruples... Apparently more than Whoopi has today. Her mindset is a result of the modern thought process where everything is relative.
But if he is sent to jail to serve his term now, he'll be in good company... Lots of pedophiles and child molesters just like him.
Give the guy a bit a slack for being a gentleman during the rape... He ask the girl if she was "on the pill". Can't have another 13-year-old mother running around, can we?
Yes, yes... His victim - now in her mid-forties and getting some facetime - forgives him. Does that change anything for Polanski?
Not in my book... He's a convicted child rapist that hasn't served his time.
