An anachronism is defined as a thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, especially a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned.  At Worth County High School, we were taught that William Shakespeare, the Bard, was wrong to put clocks in Julius Caesar or have Caesar say “Jesus Christ, these fool stabbed me” when Caesar lived before Christ.   Ok, I am paraphrasing.

In the military movie Heartbreak Ridge, the young Annapolis  grad Major calls Gunnery Sergeant Highway, played by Clint Eastwood, an anachronism to the modern Marine Corps.  But in the heat of battle, you need those oldheads….wait, us oldheads.  The Tea Party on the Right and the Progressives on the Left might need to watch this old film.

Hollywood, like every part of life, had a way of doing things back in the day….sometimes right and sometimes wrong.  Harvey Weinstein is an anachronism of the film industry.  We would be here all day talking about those nasty old school dudes of the Black and White era.  But, we should make a distinction between sexy cats who the ladies were all over like Ronald Reagan and trolls who used power and influence to get sex from those trying to get a head.  Of course, some of those young starlets got off the bus from the Midwest with plans to make it come hell or high water… by any means necessary.  No one should ever ever be attacked.  Period.

In some ways, official Washington was supposedly like that back in the day and the music industry still is.  Kayne West’s lyrics from his collaboration with Jay-Z on “N-ggas in Paris” must have been Weinstein favorite jam.

She said Ye can we get married at the mall?
I said look you need to crawl ‘fore you ball
Come and meet me in the bathroom stall
And show me why you deserve to have it all
Ball so hard
That sh-t cray (that sh-t cray), ain’t it Jay?

 

It’s silly season to say Democrats are connected to Weinstein’s actions if they didn’t know.  Didn’t Republicans just elect a guy president over quality candidates and they were fully aware of his long history.
