I'm sorry, but Whoopi Goldberg is a moron. Today, she insulted the intelligence of good people everywhere by suggesting that what director Roman Polanski did to a 13-year-old girl 30 years ago "wasn't rape-rape." What the F is rape-rape?

The girl was 13-years-old and being plied with drugs and alcohol by a grown man. But Whoopi suggests that the sex between the child and the 46-year-old Polanski was consensual.

Whoopi argues the point that the world doesn't share our uncompromising views on child molestation and therefore WE are behind the times.

Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland last week and is awaiting extradition. There is no statute of limitations on child molestation charges.

    Okay Sandra I have to agree with you on this. If a child is underage it is rape no matter if she wanted it or not. Rape is rape. I see young girls all the time 15 and 16 with 24 and 25 year old baby fathers. This is rape. Some turn they heads thinking the girl is just fast and hot but no matter what its still rape.

  • LovelyLady

    My only questions is? Why was it ok for a man to marry a 12,13,14 year old ago with no problems.

  • PAHairston

    The 13 year old in question is still living today and she said to forget it. Hell, if she doesn't want to press charges, who is it up to?

  • kwall

    and 32 years later (i was not even AROUND when the whole polanski thing happened...take that back...i was...i was wee bitty tho)

    i still wanna kno...

    why was she at jack nicholson house alone with an old ays man?

    where was her momma?

    where was her daddy?

    it happened in march 1977...did she not hafta go to school the next day...why was she out with a grown man in a hot tub? at night?

    why was he allowed to run?

    until all of these questions are answered i am gonna need to miss this topic.

  • The Divine Ms. K

    I think that this IS a very old crime, but at the same time - it WAS a crime and apparently, the statuate of limitations has not run out.

    Just because he didn't grab this girl out of her bedroom on a dark night doesn't mean it wasn't rape. It's almost like it's being excused away because it wasn't that.

    ~~~~~~~~
    Those are my same ?. When I was 13 I was still playing with Barbie's, not in some grown ass mans hot tub. In March it gets dark earlier. We had to be in the house by the time the street lights come on, that would mean it's dark at 6.

    The MODELING Industry has always catered to Young Teenage girls as if they were adults... And if I'm not mistaken wasn't she a Model or aspiring Model

    And over there in Europe they run through Teenage GIRLS like we use toilet paper here in the U.S.

    To me personally a grown person having sex with a minor aged individual is in fact SOME FORM of Rape... To what degree I GUESS depends on the state statutes-n-laws regarding such matters :shrug:

  • RachelRachel

    When dealing with the Law, rape is not just rape or rape-rape. There is a law definition that applies. Teenagers engaging in sex is partaking in sex. Rape is according to whatever the law in each state say that it is. Also, the young girl involved in this matter, according to some of the articles I've read, has resolved this long ago "with a settlement out of court" and doesn't want to further bother the man.

  • kwall

    well the STORY is/was....she was trying to pursue modeling career...and was on a PRIVATE photo shoot with mr. polanski. hence her presence being there ALONE.

    i don't give a dayum how flucking PRIVATE the shoot was....i have a 14 yo daughter and me, her dad, and her stepdad ALL say...

    hail to the mutha flucking NO....you not seeing our daughter privately or in any other way NEE-VA. with a camera. without a camera. not young boys. not old men. we do not like green eggs and ham we do not like them sam i am.

    that is all.

    he get arrested...her momma and daddy or whoever was in charge of her need to be too.

  • intensemocha

    MAYBE SHE WAS FUGGIN AT THAT AGE AND THAT'S WHY SHE FEELS THIS WAY

    EITHER WAY A CHILD DOESN'T HAVE THE EMOTIONAL CAPACITY AND/OR MATURITY TO ENGAGE IN A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP AND UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS AND THE LONG TERM AFFECTS OF ENGAGING IN SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP

    SUCH AS SEX EDUCATION, STDS, PREGNANCY, THE FUNCTION OF THEIR SEXUAL ORGANS, OR EVEN THEIR BODIES ETC.

    AN ADULT SHOULD KNOW THESE THINGS AND HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED SOME SORT OF EDUCATION REGARDING THESE MATTERS

    PREYING ON THE WEAK MINDED IS A PHENOMENON AND BLAMING THOSE VICTIMS WHO ARE IGNORANT TO THESE MATTERS FOR SOME REASONS HAVE BECOME THE NORM FOR "BLACK" WOMEN FOR SOME
    REASON IF WE BLAME THE VICTIM IT'S EASIER NOT TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM AND/OR IDENTIFY WITH THEM LEAVING THEM SOLELY TO BLAME FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM

    MANY BLACK WOMEN ARE THE VICTIMS OF "UNDERAGE RAPE" AND THIS MINDSET WAS TAUGHT TO THEM BY THEIR MAMAS WHO BLAME THEM FOR THE ASSAULT OR THE PERPETRATORS WHO CONVINCED THEM THAT IN SOME WAY THEY ASKED FOR IT/DESERVED IT

  • intensemocha

    MOST LIKELY THE PERPETRATOR WAS THE MAMA'S BOYFRIEND, HUSBAND AND BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THE STIGMA OF A SINGLE WOMAN SHE HAD TO BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY KEEP THAT MAN AROUND EVEN IF IT MEANT IT WOULD BE AT HER DAUGHTER'S EXPENSE

  • missy

    When R.kelly did it,it was rape so same thing applies her(even though he got off)And why hollywood actors defend this low life i mean if he was a regular ol' joe and had done this then he would be thrown under a bus.

    And even if a child is consensual the adult should know better and are the main ones to be blamed

  • MistaO

    Man yall know how people like woopie are. Now had this been a Black man, per se, you know dang well she wouldn't be all on the slant of minimizing what this pedofile did.

    13 is 13, like it or not pedos and broads who don't mind pedo's!!!

    In some countries it's legal to smoke crack, but here there are L-A-W-S that prohibit such behavior. The same laws that this pedo broke. He should be extradited, and jailed for his full sentence. woopie, humph...

    Y'all know the lady wanted/still wants to drop the charges...

    ...he gone.....LOL

    For the simple fact the US has been waiting 30 years to get him says it all........he ain't stepped foot in America since he pled guilty.

  • miamore73

    Coworkers and I were just talking about this. I was wondering if there was a statute of limitations on this. Why did it take so long for them to catch him if they could just have him extradited. I heard the victim say she'd forgiven him and would just like the whole thing to go away already. I'm sure she got paid for this a long time ago.

    Difference is R. Kelly always maintained his innocence (I know we didn't ride with it, LOL), but....he didn't flee the country, and he had his days in court..

  • http://myspace.com/katgirl33 katgirl33

    @ Mia,

    I'm thinking he fled to a country that didn't have an extradition treaty with America......and if my memory serves me correct, France (where the news said he "dipped" to) doesn't.

    There was a guy (YT) who killed a dentist in his office(downtown chicago) here some years ago and fled to France......his mother was from France, so that made him an automatic French Citizen.....dude still there.....

  • http://myspace.com/katgirl33 katgirl33

    I bet the Mother had "stars" in her eyes, and drugs on her brain when she allowed this to go on.....

    Y'all know Jack Nicholson was a BIG Star in the 70's........

    **************************************************************

    Because he stayed in countries that wouldn't extradite him. There's a process that the U.S. has to go through to have a fugitive captured on foreign soil. The Swiss agreed to help because he owned a house there. But every time the U.S. thought they had him, someone would tip him off and he would go running back to France. This time they got him because the U.S. and the Swiss knew exactly what flight he was on.

    Holy shit this is the dude that was married to Sharon Tate- Tate was murdered by charles manson and clan, Roland was at a movie shoot, or he woulda died too, was this before or after?

    anyway rape is rape, lock this nicca up BUT i doubt he will do any jail time

  • KaraZ

    The context of this clip is key:
    Whoopi was trying trying to explain the difference between what happened and what he was charged with. She was trying to keep ABC legal happy by clarifying that he wasn't charged with rape & he didn't plead guilty to rape. He plead guilty to having sex with a minor, which isn't rape-rape...

    She wasn't excusing Roman Polanski or his actions, she was clarifying up the legal facts to CTA.

  • miamore73

    Now Spongebob you've found an expert on the Tate Murders. I'm so morbid. Tate and friends were murdered in the 60's Polanski was out of the country at the time of the murders. They were married and she was about 8 months pregnant at the time of the murders. Also I think the day or so before he was caught one of the chicks that participated in Sharon Tates/friends murders died from brain cancer.

    Another note: The chick that played Murphy Brown..uggh.. can't remember her name lived in that same house a few years before Sharon Tate did so it could have also been her.

  • KaraZ

    @Miamore... Candice Bergen. She was dating Doris Day's son and they lived together in that home & actually they had just moved out a month or two, before the incident; so one has to wonder how random the attack was or who was the target or these murders?

    BLANK STARE @ Whoopi. WT__??

  • diamonique70

    Sandra I saw that idiot on the view and wondered wtf she was talking about "not rape-rape"....I started to call the network and complain about her a--!
