Oh, If Only It Was More Than Polanski’s Privacy Being “Invaded”
Roman Polanski claims his privacy is being invaded, while he’s under house arrest. Poor little arty rich boy: Unable to relax in his own fancy pants chalet, for goodness sake. Oh, the humanity!
The 76-year-old film director is currently wearing an electronic tag while on bail in Switzerland after being threatened with deportation to the US over a child sex conviction dating back 30 years.
But now he has filed a complaint of his own in his home city of Paris, claiming his family has been harassed by cameramen in their Alpine chalet in the ski resort of Gstaad.
In a test case which will have worldwide implications, Polanksi’s lawyers will argue that even a self-confessed sex offender on bail has a right to privacy, especially as he is staying with his wife and their two teenage children. The pictures were all taken on public land outside the chalet, which has been used regularly by Polanski since he fled to Europe in 1978 after admitting unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl.
Um, firstly, doesn’t the condition of “house arrest” sort of take away any right to privacy? It’s not supposed to be house relax-y vacation (unless you are soaking up the rays and being catered to at Gitmo).
Secondly, shut up, you pedophilic rapist-rapist. You will get not one ounce of sympathy from me nor from anyone else who isn’t a delusional, sycophantic drone. You see, we dumb redneck-y Ugly American philistines don’t think it is cool to rape kids. Oooh, your picture is being taken. How invasive! Of course, not as invasive as raping a 13 year old child. Who repeatedly said no. Over and over. Who was scared out of her mind, yet you, a grown “man” continued to use and abuse her in various ways. Over and over again , for your own sick enjoyment, for which you felt no remorse. You don’t even believe you had done anything wrong!
“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!”
No, sicko, not everyone wants to abusively rape young girls. I suppose perhaps the drooling idiots known as your fans and supporters have convinced you otherwise:
Roman Polanski said he was overwhelmed by messages of support as he battles extradition to the US to face a decades-old sex case involving a 13-year-old girl
Thankfully, the real world is filled with people other than those who think that the rape of a CHILD is hunky-dory because they dig the guys “art” and his liberal thought. Ones who don’t figure “Well, at least he tried not to get her pregnant. What’s a little sodomy? At least that way she wouldn’t be “punished with a baby”. Sheesh! Relax, you uncultured wingnuts! Plus, it’s not like he disagrees with Obama!”
The real world is filled with people who abhor you. Simply can’t bear being “invaded” by a couple of snapshots now? Well, get ready for jail. I do so hope you enjoy finding out what actual invasive is. Don’t worry, Roman. It’s not “rape-rape”.
