Yesterday I had passed along a series of stories that showed the serious illness that infests the liberal mindset. Today we see something that makes those examples look like frivolousness.
By reading on, you’re going to see some sick stuff. I wouldn’t normally post this disgusting crudity, but it serves to illustrate just how depraved and vile the Leftist mindset actually is.

Oscar winning director Roman Polanski was arrested:
Swiss police confirm they have arrested Roman Polanski. The Polish-born film director fled the U.S. in 1978 after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with the underage girl.
That’s a pretty sterile reporting of what happened. Click here for a partial transcript of the girl’s testimony. The short version is that Polanski seduced a 13-year old girl, got her drunk and drugged her, then raped her. When he found out she wasn’t on birth control, he sodomized her instead. She repeatedly protested and told him ‘no’ throughout the whole experience. For his crime, he served 42 days in a mental institution, then (after being released for a bail hearing) fled to Europe, where he has been living a life of luxury and fame ever since.
Now, the wacko Left is showing its true stripes. No, not by calling for justice. They’re rallying around Polanski with all kinds of sick and twisted irrational explanations to justify his abhorrent actions against a child. Take a look:
Hey, Whoopi, how about you get your facts straight? First of all, he wasn’t just charged, he was convicted. Second, how is ‘rape’ different than ‘rape-rape’? Can we find that in a legal dictionary somewhere? And what about the sodomy, the drinking, or the drugs? Are you saying you wouldn’t mind if your granddaughter went through this?
Are you finished contorting yourself into a moral pretzel yet?
Actors and actresses from Harrison Ford to Debra Winger have reportedly joined the growing throng of liberal celebrities calling for Polanski to be released following his arrest in Switzerland last week.
Studio kingpin Harvey Weinstein says he is leading the charge and “e-mailing everybody I know” to push for the swift release of his friend, whom he calls a “humanist” who has been the victim of a gross “miscarriage of justice” for more than three decades.
There’s also a petition being circulated by European and Hollywood wackos, and it’s signed by the likes of Woody Allen (who married his own step-daughter, by the way) and Martin Scorsese demanding Polanski’s freedom because he’s the victim, you see. There are a few voices of relative sanity on the Left regarding this incident, but not many.
Even worse, this behavior is apparently par for the course for Polanski. Clear back in 1979, he said in an interview:
“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… f—ing, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to f— young girls. Juries want to f— young girls. Everyone wants to f— young girls!”
Um…no, you sicko, everyone doesn’t.
And it just gets better: Polanski just finished another children’s movie!
All this leads to the inevitable conclusion that the Left is truly depraved and twisted. To justify the inebriation, drugging, rape, and sodomy of a 13-year old girl because this guy has made some good — according to them — movies is beyond the pale.
But typical of the liberal Left.
Dafydd Ab Hugh offers this analysis, which strikes me as being dead on:
This illustrates one of the most important points to understand about liberals: They project their own evil and perversion on the rest of us, so that they will not feel uniquely vile and disgusting:
Liberals tend to be extraordinarily racist; they believe racial minorities are incapable of succeeding without special government help, and they insist that all racial minorities follow the rules set for their race by white liberals. They realize what they really feel about blacks, Hispanics, and other “funny colored people,” but they don’t want to think they’re uniquely racist.
So they accused everyone else of being racist too.
They’re just as sexist as they are racist; women are just PLTs who need help from Big Daddy government to achieve even a modest level of success. But they feel creepy harboring such thoughts — and enabling such sexual predators as Teddy Kennedy, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT, 100%), and their “waitress sandwich” sexual assaults — and don’t want to think they’re uniquely misogynist.
So they accuse everyone else of being sexist too.
Liberals, who have a deep-rooted sense of entitlement and no compunction against enjoying the privileges of power, tend to engage in the most brazen and extraordinary acts of corruption; most recently, witness the Countrywide plc sweetheart mortgage scandal for “Friends of Angelo”. But with all the vicious rhetoric they spew against unbridled greed and the moral immunity bought by power, they don’t want to think that they themselves are the real exemplars of such corruption.
So they call everyone else corrupt as well.
This is the standard liberal pattern: They project their own sins on the rest of us to “spread the guilt around,” to paraphrase the Guiltmonger in Chief. So when Polanski says “Everyone wants to f*** young girls,” we should conclude that he understands, in some dark depth of his soul (such as it is), that his tastes are not merely perverted but horribly so. Yet because he doesn’t want to believe that his amorality is uniquely eldritch, he accuses everyone else of likewise being a child rapist at heart — “See? It’s not just me!”
But that’s just the thing – it is just them. The vast majority of Americans easily understand that these things are wrong. Most Americans thoroughly reject all of these notions, and especially the vile actions — like Polanski’s — that are the inevitable result of these notions. On the whole, America is not racist, sexist, or corrupt…but liberals are, and they project those beliefs onto the rest of us because if they didn’t, they’d have to face their own racism, sexism, and corruption.
There’s my two cents.
