Hollywood Supports Pedophiles

It was a bit nausea-inducing to read about Hollywood creatures ginning up support for pedophile Roman Polanski, who might actually be forced to face trial for rapind and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl here in the States.

Well, why should they care about Polanski's private life, right? It's his "choice," isn't it? We really should keep the courts out of the bedroom, after all.

Or, better yet, Let's blame the mothers for Polanski's monstrous behavior. I mean, if a mother "thrusts" her child at him, why should Polanski show any restrait and recognize that 13 is way too young for a 44-year-old man to have sex with?

The Left, apparently, isn't bothered by child rape, but more concerned about the L.A. district attorney pursuing the case at a time of budget cuts. Because, you know, f*cking your 13-year-old was just consensual sex, I suppose.

UPDATE: Mollie at GetReligion adds this to the rape apologists:

There’s this odd clip from The View where Whoopi Goldberg tries to explain that Polanski merely raped the girl, not “raped-raped” her. Because apparently giving a 13-year-old alcohol and Quaaludes and repeatedly refusing to comply with her demands that you stop orally, vaginally and anally raping her isn’t “rape-rape.”

This reminds me a bit of Bill Clinton's "it wasn't sex" defenders.

UPDATE x2: Smitty at The Other McCain points out the similarities in defense of Polanski and Ted Kennedy.

UPDATE x3: Here is Patterico's post on Whoopi Goldberg's declaration that anally raping a 13-year-old child isn't "rape-rape," plus a transcript of the 13-year-old's testimony.
