Here’s the second missing post. Why I like to have a post list so I can tell what has gone missing. Rick Sanchez plays Whoopi Goldberg’s “clarification” for her ignorant words. He was right what he said the first time and right the second. And she was wrong both and never apologized to not knowing any of the facts before she opened her mouth.
Aired October 1st
He was finally arrested as you know in Switzerland when he went there to receive a lifetime achievement award last weekend. Authorities have been wanting to nab him since the 1970s.
Yesterday, I told you about some of the high-profile names in Hollywood who are defending Polanski. And we also showed you what Whoopi Goldberg had said on Monday on ABC’s “The View.”
WHOOPI GOLDBERG:What I’m saying is he did not rape her because she was aware and the family apparently was aware. [LIE. LIE. LIE.]
SHERRI SHEPERD: Was it consensual? I mean, what is rape? What is the definition of rape?
GOLDBERG: Well, I don’t know if it was consensual.
jOY BEHAR: Wait a second.
SHERRI: When you have to give somebody drugs, I don’t know.
GOLDBERG: He was not charged — I guess I’m saying he was not charged with rape, is all I’m trying to say. [LIE.]
OK, like I said yesterday, we often use clips from “The View,” and Whoopi Goldberg has always been very astute. At least, I consider her to be — I think most people consider her to be very astute, very transparent about items like this. And, also, she’s been cordial enough in the past to call into my show and explain her positions on things, generally a person to be respected.
I understand from her people, though, that she was upset with me yesterday for doing this report, and not include — including her newest comments, which she made the following day, after those you just saw.
And you know what? She is right. My screw-up. I should have included where she came back and tried to reassert her position. So, here it is now, Whoopi trying to set the record straight.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: We were talking about Roman Polanski’s arrest the ther day. Some people got the idea that I was condoning what he did. So, I’m going to be very clear. I was trying to make sure that we got the facts straight, cuz that’s my job.
[Unfortunately she got everything wrong - even with this ignorant babble. She should just shut up and talk to a 13 y/o who she believes wasn't raped raped.]
GOLDBERG: Particularly what he was arrested for and what he was charged with. and here is what it was once and for all:
And here is what it was, once and for all.
He was originally indicted on six felony charges [listed them out]:
1-Furnishing a controlled substance to a minor
4-Committing a lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14
5-Engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor
6-Rape by use of drug
All of these charges were dismissed, except for the one he pled guilty to.
It’s the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor – not rape – which was my point.
[Ms Goldberg, please listen:
Roman Polanski was charged with rape.
Roman Polanski admitted to rape.
Roman Polanski pled guilty to rape.
Roman Polanski raped a child, which makes Roman Polanski a pedophile.
Rape is a medical diagnosis -- not a legal definition pled to for the sake of punishment or because the person raped doesn't want to testify.
Physically, a 13 year-old child was raped by a 44 year-old pervert. His forced sexual acts on a child over three times younger than him - aided by premeditated drugging - did not change because of what he pled guilty to.
Please put an end to your hurtful ignorance or kindly shut up.
And then finally do as you say here.]
GOLDBERG: So, just to make sure that people understand, on this show, people listen to what we say, and I always want to make sure we’re putting out the correct information.
[And what made her ignorance most despicable?
She said: "he did not rape her because she was aware and the family apparently was aware" and that "They were having sex beforehand."
Outright lies and nowhere does she correct them.
She apologized for nothing and clearly learned nothing.]
You know, really, Whoopi Goldberg is still wrong.
And I appreciate the fact that she came back and tried to set the record straight.
But here’s why. And I think we need to look at this with common sense, right?
What Polanski was willing to cop to or what his lawyers were willing to make a deal with judges about and what he did are two completely different things. They really are.
Here are the facts. Go to my blog and read them again. And I invite Whoopi Goldberg to go and read this long document.
He was 43 years old. She was 13 years old. He was in her care (sic). He got her drunk. He got her to take a quaalude. Forget the legalese. Just talk like regular people here.
He got her naked in Jack Nicholson’s hot tub. She said no. She said no many times. He sodomized her in many different ways, many different times.
And, you know, in the end, what this really all comes down to is one number. I have a daughter, OK? One number. The number is 13 — 13. She was 13 years old.
Thanks again, Mr Sanchez.
