‘Monty Python’ member, Hollywood director says ‘mob rule’ #MeToo is out of hand: ‘This is crazy!’


Recommended Posts


Terry Gilliam, “Monty Python” member and Hollywood director famous for directing films like “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and “The Brothers Grimm,” has spoken out against the #MeToo movement, noting that it’s spun wildly out of control and has descended into “mob rule.”

What did he say?

In addition to saying that the #MeToo movement had become a witch hunt, Gilliam explained that he felt many women benefitted from their experiences with disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein and used him in return.

Agence France-Presse reported on Friday that Gilliam took substantial issue with the movement that helped to begin uncovering and publicizing a deep perversion at the root of Hollywood.

“It is a world of victims,” Gilliam said of Hollywood. “I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey and others didn’t. The ones who did knew what they were doing.”

“These are adults, we are talking about adults with a lot of ambition,” he explained. “Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay.”

“Some people paid the price,” Gilliam noted, “other people suffered from it.”

The Brown Skirts

 When it comes time for a young man to venture out into the world he can do one of two things. He can barge out, full throttle, raring to take flight. Or he can bumble his way into oblivion and hope not the make too much of a mess of things. Which one is right remains to be seen.

 Benny went to work. And he came home. And he fed his cat. Well, his cats. Well, cat. It felt like more than one. It ate as much.

He imagined his cat, Herman, talking to him. “You know, Benny. You should get out more. Or get in less. Either way, what are you doing here? Just feeding your fat cat?”

 Benny was confused. Even his cat condemned him.

 He worked in IT. Not for Google. But for some other tech giant. Giggle, maybe. He didn’t punch in every day, nine to five, and didn’t have a schedule. He could work at home! What fun. Work and not see people at the same time! A role player’s dream.

 One non-day Benny was in the non-office. At non-work, in other words. He happened across a coworker.      :snip:   http://philosopherspeashooter.blogspot.com/
