The backlash begins: French government easing off defense of Polanski

posted at 4:11 pm on September 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

First the Times pulls the plunger on him, now suddenly the French are talking up law and order. Is there no one so Enlightened that they’ll defend this bail-skipping child-rapist? Besides Woody Allen, I mean.

Word on the street: Polanski’s next film is so good, the EU’s going to lower the age of consent to eight just for him.

After French politicians across the spectrum initially voiced strong unease over the arrest, a government spokesman modified the official line on Wednesday, saying that Polanski was “neither above nor below the law.”

“A judicial procedure is under way concerning a serious case, the rape of a minor, and the U.S. and Swiss justice systems are doing their work,” spokesman Luc Chatel told reporters after a cabinet meeting.

“On the other hand, there’s emotion, and we can understand the emotion stirred up by this belated arrest, more than 30 years after the events, and the method of the arrest,” he said…

Several French politicians, including members of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s own UMP party, have accused the government of elitism and acting in haste. Green Member of the European Parliament Daniel Cohn-Bendit said Mitterrand should have waited before more details of the case were known…

“Charges of raping a 13-year-old child, that’s not something trivial,” UMP parliamentarian Marc Laffineur said.

There are even sparks of righteousness flashing inside the film industry thanks to Luc Besson, who refused to sign the “free Polanski” petition on grounds that “nobody should be above the law” (and whose best film, The Professional, coincidentally deals with the uncomfortably intense relationship between an aging French criminal and a 12-year-old nymphet.) Exit question via Tom Maguire: Polanski’s legal team doesn’t seriously think Eric Holder’s going to go to bat for a child-rapist just because they hired a buddy of his, do they? The nerve of them. If they want our Attorney General to roll over for a convicted fugitive, they can go ahead and make a donation to the DNC just like everyone else.

Update: More backlash. “JUST FOR THE RECORD….RAPE IS RAPE.”

This is why the left vs. right explanation of this matter doesn’t, to me, make sense. And because of that it’s simply not fair to say “the left thinks what Polanski did is okay.” No they don’t.

There’s something different happening here that mostly transcends the left/right polarities. Mostly. There is a sort of anti-traditionist/conventional morality attitude – the sort of epater le bourgeoisie – that is on the cultural left that probably plays a role in this.

But it’s a minor one.

Its pretty sad that the Left’s true image is only being discovered now because of Roman Polanski. But celebrities endorsing socialism is just thought of as a valid opinion.

Speedwagon82 on September 30, 2009 at 4:25 PM

The “30 years after the fact” argument adds insult to injury, since it’s 30 years after the fact because the child rapist FLED JUSTICE and has been on the lam for 30 years. He has no one to blame but himself — and the shameless countries that gave him aid and comfort in fleeing justice — for this arrest coming “30 years after the fact.”

“’Brewster has something he needs to talk with you about,’ she intoned ominously. Brewster squirmed at the prospect of telling, and we sat silently for a short while. On a hunch, I suddenly asked ‘What’s his name?’ Brewster’s eyes widened briefly, and then out spilled a story about his involvement with an older man he had met in Boston. I listened, sympathized, and offered advice. He left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated.”

Not only influence it… the Justice Department has to actively participate in the extradition proceeding in Switzerland, including papers, briefs, and oral argument.

Which means Holder can’t just vote present, like his boss. He either does it or he doesn’t.

Will be interesting to see what they do.

Does Holder really want to get his hands dirty with this? Because if he is anyway connected with it and tries to blame the French, his rank and file will not fall for it. Too many are too angry.

To clarify, Luc Besson’s film “The Professional” concerns an intense but chaste relationship between a young girl and an assassin, who is himself in many ways a child. The film is ultimately artful and mature in its resolution of the orphaned girl’s need for love and authority and the older man’s sense of responsibility. It’s also a great action flick.

I loved “La Femme Nikita” and the role of the cleaner was great, but “THe Professional” took that very interesting character and made one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. Gary Oldman should have been arrested for the way he chewed every bit of scenery he could find, and the idea that an assassin works for years on his own and then, all of a sudden, can’t get around without the help of a 12 year old, is just crazy. I always put “The Professional” in the ‘Worst of’ lists.

progressoverpeace on September 30, 2009 at 4:46 PM

Luc Bessons best movie IMHO is Taken. Action packed and lots of well deserved ass kicking.

IC on September 30, 2009 at 4:46 PM

In the grand scheme of things, in comparison to health care, cap and trade, titanic budget defecits, etc this is a very small thing.

However, it is a culturally and socially significant flash point. It is not important for a now 40something woman but for everyone else ever finding themselves in a similar situation. It is important true equal justice and the legitimacy of our laws and legal system.

People’s voices make a difference on big stories and small. And we’re not talking about so much the rape of a 13 year old girl but the elite and influential potentially getting away (further) with a heinous crime. We’re talking about the power of the media and Hollywood to shape the moral direction of this and other countries.

Consider this: Republicans, according to the opposition and the media, are racist, ignorant mobs of unsympathetic, uneducated and prejudiced fools. Our opposition to figures like Van Jones are assigned those reasons when the truth of the matter is what he has said and done. And yet, people, many on the left, display who they are by actions and words in their past and the people who continue to elect them don’t know and aren’t readily given the information to make a proper decision.

Just as Roman Polanski is a ‘respected film maker’, Bill Ayers is a ‘respected professor of education’. The notions that people’s previous deeds do not matter as much as their alleged noble intent in the present is absurd and something that has to be fought tooth and nail.

So, IMO, the Polanski case is somewhat allegorical in that this is a common phenomena….the media and the influential elite can justify and white-wash abhorent behavior to suit their own ends. And that is something that must be fought back against.

Wonder if he’s ever looked at her and had even a moment’s regret at the heinous act he inflicted on another parent’s treasured child.

Maybe not.

marybel on September 30, 2009 at 5:42 PM

What a wonderful lesson it would be to criminals if we can get this man to DIE behind bars. Had he answered for his crimes then – he’d have been a free man long ago.

Instead – very possibly – the moral of this story could be that Roman Polanski committed a crime – then ran for 30 years from the consequences, constantly looking over his shoulder the entire time – only to be captured near the end of his life to die a prisoner in a cell down the hall from Charles Manson – the man who killed his wife.

Please – let this be the way the last act of this play is written!

These French politicians speaking out now are just following the lead of the French public, who were expressing outrage earlier this week at the French “elites'” defense of Polanski, and their attempts to rationalize away and/or diminish his crimes.

This, combined with Sarkozy’s reported characterization of Obama as an ignorant narcissist, is causing me to re-evaluate the French character. Maybe they’re not the limp-wristed, cheese-eating surrender monkeys we’ve always believed they were . . . .

Well, if that deal craters over this, not to worry.

I hear she’s already got a deal in the works with NAMGLA and NAMBLA, but still waiting to hear from ACORN.

Not ‘below the law?’ What does that even mean?

The Wrath of Khan: can we say that?

We sure khan.

HAHAHAHA….always loved Kirstie Alley. Have no idea about her politics, and don’t know if I ever want to, but I have always been a fan. Good for her!

Polanski has a 16-ish year old daughter, who is duly cherished I imagine.

That’s disgusting!

Au revoir.

When he’s sentenced to twenty years here in the US that’s when I’ll gladly contribute, AMF.

“neither above nor below the law”

Just beneath contempt.

Just put Roman in a hard core lockup for a year with bullet-headed Brunos with lots of tats who will help him expand his sexual horizons, among other things expanded.

Its only rape-rape baby if its against a true innocent like a sheep or deer. Everyone knows they can’t give consent no matter how old!

chickasaw42 on September 30, 2009 at 10:13 PM

new meaning to ‘rosemary’s baby’ eh?

OOOOOooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Kind of interesting that Natalie Portman (the little girl in “The Professional”) is supporting Polanski.

Anyway, I really like the film.

Hollywood is really making it hard to enjoy movies anymore — half the actors are Marxism supporting twits — and they love to let us know it.

I figured Allah liked women with junk in the trunk.

teke184 on September 30, 2009 at 4:20 PM

Yah, but she has enough junk in the trunk that shutting the lid becomes a group effort.

Polanski will get a full pardon after a large contribution to the Obama Library in Chicago on 1-19-2012.

This child rapist should be put into the general population of a state prison and anyone who defends him should seriously consider how they would feel if somone drugged, raped and sodomized their child.

TrickyDick on October 1, 2009 at 1:36 PM

They are not “CHARGES” of child rape– he pleased guilty. When will these godless media organs get it right?
