Not all, of course. A fair number of those tarred, like Roy Price, John Lasseter, Kevin Spacey, Steve Jurvetson, Ed Westwick, Terry Richardson, Chris Savino, and Charlie Rose, are gentiles.
But over 50% of the prominent men ensnared in the recent wave of scandals have come from the 2.4% of the population which is Jewish: Harvey Weinstein, Brett Rattner, Oliver Stone, Steven Seagal, Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven, Mike Oreskes, Leon Wieseltier, Louis C.K., Mark Helperin, Glenn Thrush, Al Franken, Murray Miller, Andrew Kreisberg, Jeffrey Tambor, and James Toback.
What do we make of this? (Other than to pretend we don't notice, which is the socially acceptable thing to do.) Since this upheaval has been about men who've abused their positions of power, one easy conclusion is about who holds the power in this country. Especially in Hollywood and the press, where the scandals have centered.
Does it say something about Jewish attitudes toward the goyim that they considered the gentile women they hit on to be suitable prey? (If we are to take the feminist viewpoint here, "prey" is the right word.)
Most of the women these men targeted were gentiles. Mark Oppenheimer characterized Harvey Weinstein's trespasses as being peculiarly Portnoy-like in Tablet Magazine:
Better than perhaps any other author, Roth captured the particular anxiety of the Jewish American man in the twentieth century, finally coming into power but, having not grown up with it, unsure of what he’s supposed to do now. All those years craving unattainable Gentiles, but never before the means to entice them. The result is Alexander Portnoy of Portnoy’s Complaint, a grown man whose emotional and sexual life is still all one big performance piece, just as it had been when he was a teenager and pleasured himself with a piece of liver....
Harvey is cut from the same cloth. Growing up in Queens, he fantasized of fame and fortune, and, once he got them, he struggled to maintain them by building himself into a larger-than-life figure. He yelled at employees like he was a studio boss from the 1920s—the only thing missing was a riding crop. He ran Oscars campaigns like they used to in Old Hollywood. And he harassed women not necessarily to use them as instruments of his pleasure, but to use them as instruments of his power.
It's a little ironic that for the past half century, feminism has been largely led by Jewish women, yet most of the men caught in its latest iteration have been Jewish. It's doubtful that Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug, Susan Brownmiller, Naomi Wolf, Gloria Allred, Andrea Dworkin, Betty Friedan, Susan Sontag, Wendy Wasserstein and company started out by saying, "Okay, we're going to tear down the Jewish power structure in this country!"
It was the WASP power structure that many of these ladies had in their sights back in the 60's. But what they set in motion has come back to bite them, or, at least, their sons.
Because just as surely as first wave feminism begat second wave feminism, the latter begat third wave feminism. And it's the third wave that has redefined the ordinary pass as an "unwanted sexual advance," then redefined that as "sexual assault." (This is not to say that actual sexual assaults don't take place, merely that an attempt at a kiss -- or talking dirty -- is not a rape.)
It's also ironic that so many of the men caught in this net have been prominent liberals. It's almost as if the more lip service you pay to feminism, the more lip service you expect from pretty young women.
(It's been speculated that this is all a calculated preamble to impeaching Trump for similar sins; but if so, it's an awfully roundabout way to accomplish that.)
Jewish sexuality is no different from goyim sexuality. (The only possible twist there is that masturbating in front of a woman, at least when not in prison, seems to be a peculiarly Jewish thing.)
But back to the larger question: are Jewish attitudes towards the goyim different from non-Jews' attitudes towards Jews? Is there a certain lack of respect, a certain lack of consideration, that these powerful Jewish men showed towards the good-looking shiksas they surrounded themselves with? ("Shiksa" was originally a Yiddish term meaning, according to Wiki, something impure, or an abomination, or an object of loathing.)
There may be some truth to the difference in attitudes. Although it's not talked about in polite company, Jewish ethnocentrism is a far stronger group ethic than, say, Anglo ethnocentrism. (Anglo ethnocentrism is invariably referred to as "racism.") But, it's also true that powerful men -- of whatever ethnicity -- will always use their power to get more women, one way or another. That happens everywhere, with everyone, all the time, and has always been the case.
This brings us to another question: are the "victims" (some real, some less so) who are now striking back motivated partly by resentment towards the current Jewish power structure?
Another theme it's hard not to notice, which I've mentioned before, is that a lot of the men caught up in this scandal been named have been undeniably ugly. And, a lot of them have been unmistakably Jewish-looking at the same time. It seems unfair that a handsome guy and an ugly guy can behave in exactly same manner, and one is accused of sexual harassment while the other simply enjoys a good time.
What do we make of that?
So what were the shiksas' thought processes, exactly? ("Ugh, I wouldn't have given this ugly dwarf the time of day in high school, and he thinks because he's a powerful producer now I'm gonna blow him? No way!")
Another possibility: even if they weren't anti-Semitic before, might their experiences with Harvey, Brett, and their ilk possibly have nudged them in that direction?
It's hard to say. All these factors are intertwined, and many of the women in the casting couch parade were willing participants. And for a fair number of these women, their own thought processes probably aren't clear even to them. (Consider Rose McGowan.) Actresses generally aren't known for their mental stability and rationality.
In any case, they do seem to be getting their revenge.
And it's the best entertainment Hollywood has given us in a while.
