Hollywood leftists and their adoring acolytes in the media are all aflutter today after the self-righteous and morally indignant rant delivered against President-elect Donald Trump at Sunday night’s Golden Globes Awards show by actress Meryl Streep.
Seemingly on the verge of tears, Streep decried Trump’s election and expressed her deep concerns about the morality of the nation under a Trump administration.
However, her stated worries about morality in America rang rather hollow, not just because they came from a fading star in the largely amoral liberal bastion of Hollywood, but because Streep herself has publicly displayed her warm support for a man convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl many years ago, according to Twitchy.
During the 2003 Academy Awards show, director Roman Polanski received an award for his artsy film “The Pianist,” and received a standing ovation from numerous members of the Hollywood elite who were in the crowd, including Meryl Streep.

Polanski was charged and pleaded guilty in 1977 to having sex with an underage girl, only to flee the country before he could be sentenced for his terrible crime, according to ABC News.
Polanski had been accused by his victim, then-13-year-old Samantha Geimer, of using champagne and a Quaalude to coerce her into engaging in various sexual acts.
Polanski agreed to a deal ahead of the trial and pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse and served 42 days in a California jail. However, upon learning that he was likely to be sentenced to more time in a state prison, which he had not expected, he fled the country and moved to France in 1978. READ MORE
