Polanski in 1979: Everyone Wants to Fuck Young Girls!

Filed under: Dog Trainer,General — Patterico @ 7:08 pm

From an interview Roman Polanski gave in 1979 (h/t Eric Blair):

If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see? But… fucking, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to fuck young girls. Juries want to fuck young girls. Everyone wants to fuck young girls!

Well, then, Mr. Polanski, you should have gone to trial. If you’re right, any jury would doubtless have approved of your actions in drugging and anally raping a 13-year-old.

But you pled guilty (something the dimwits at the L.A. Times still don’t understand).

And you Polanski defenders think he didn’t do this to anyone else, huh?

I think you’re wrong.

P.S. Standard disclaimer here.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has a list of Polanski’s defenders.

I wonder how they would react if it turned out that this wasn’t his only offense?

  1. I wouldn’t worry about this. One of the few good things about the Obama administration is that rich white guys are not going to get the automatic pass they expect. Not to mention a Sec of State who is disinclined to ignore violence against women.

    The asshats who are defending this loser are going to be backtracking awful quickly when they find they have little support. Most LIBERALS of my acquaintance think Polanski is a shit, too.

  2. Sorry about using “shit” in a comment.

  3. I would say that Mr. Polanski has truly reduced his argument to the essentials.

  4. I think the disclaimer link might have gone a bit dodgy.

  6. So how much are the inter-office bribes up to to be allowed to prosecute his ass when he gets back and tries to withdraw his guilty plea?

    People have GOT to be offering 10k to be the one to get him chucked in the slammer…

  7. From my blog, regarding any otheres, or whether there was a pattern of behavior,
    Polanski filed suit in 2002 in the United Kingdom against the American publishing giant Conde Nast over a 2001 Vanity Fair article. Buried in the article was an account of Polanski propositioning a Scandinavian model at the New York restaurant Elaine’s on his way to the funeral of his wife following her 1969 murder by the Manson family. Vanity Fair later conceded that the incident at Elaine’s did not occur at the time reported, but rather in the weeks shortly following the funeral.

    Or this little tidbit, from the same source,

    In this case, Polanski admitted to numerous trysts with everyone from movie starlets to school girls in Gstaad

  8. Animals have more protectors, in Hollywood, than minor girls. Maybe that explains it. Polanski is an animal.

  9. I guess any rapist could make the same basic argument “hey, everyone wants to have sex”. An argument the bank robber could make about money, as well.

  10. to school girls in Gstaad

    Wait, what?

    God damnit.

    The tour guide said NOTHING about this when I visited there… Why do the rich get all the fun stuff to do in a city?

    Comment by Scott Jacobs (d027b8) — 9/29/2009 @ 8:07 pm

  11. Just to re-enforce the low moral fibre of Hollywood in the 70′s, and in no way condoning Polanski’s actions, there was a lot of it about in those days, from Wikipedia again (sorry),

    At age 14,(Melanie) Griffith began dating 22-year old actor Don Johnson who co-starred with her mother in the 1973 film, The Harrad Experiment, in which Griffith was an extra

    And by “dating” they mean they moved in together with Mom’s blessing. Mom was Tippi Hedren, BTW.

  12. I seem to recall something about Polanski and Natasha Kinski when she was 15 or so….or am I mixing things up?

  13. Put your anger to good use – boycott Hollywood! Let them know we will not tolerate them defending a child rapist!!

    How does the new “link” feature work, by the way?

  24. But… fucking, you see, and the young girls

    And why are there a bunch of dots between “but” and “fucking”? How did the transcriber decide “but” should have one t and not two t’s?

    You mean, I’m not allowed to say that Roman Polanski is a worthless, piece of shit, rock spider, scumbag?

  29. Reference Mrs. Clinton’s disinclination to support rapists, it very much depends who the rapist happens to be. Prior to her current job, Mrs. Clinton’s only executive experience as managing bimbo rerupts.

    As for the dwarf pervert, Polanski. humans are animals and like all animals we have urges. Unlike a mere animal, a civilized man, those outside of Hollywood, are expected to control their urges.

    Then I being unfair to all those dogs and cats who have better self-restraint than the dwarf.

  31. Dear Mr. Frey

    Deputy District DA in Los Angeles? Where do you find the free time…to blog about Polanski… or IS this little recreation…. all part of the job? Big Election year coming up, right?

    Shouldn’t you be making sure justice is served through a just system? Justice for the victim and Polanski cannot be won under a corrupt justice system then and now.

    I believe, two kinds of people when it comes to crime and punishment. There are those who understand that we are a nation of laws, and that our system does not serve vengeance but justice. And those who are like something out of the Old Testament, eye for an eye righteous, lying, arrogant fumers. I like to divide these groups into educated and ignorant

    David Wells did not lie in the documentary. The interview was done years ago according to the director. He signed a release. The film premiered in 2008 worldwide. No word from Wells on his big lie until now? Me thinks Cooley is worried he will not get elected again. Clearly the LAJD has no respect for its own system but as we know corruption breeds corruption. The fact that the majority of the PRESS is IGNORING a corrupt judge in 1977 and now a corrupt DA speaks volumes. The question is how much are you paying David Wells or at least tell us what he’s getting of it or were threats involved?

    RE: Probation Transcripts: So many case facts have been spinned by your pal Marcia Clark, I cannot even begin to list them all. However the documentary: Roman Polanski: Wanted & Desired interviews MAJOR participants from the case and witnesses to Rittenband’s judicial misconduct who outline this heinous conduct in the film. How interesting that the PRESS also FAILS to mention that Rittenband asked a news reporter (as well as David Wells ) “What he should do with Polanski?” Ethics Violation…big time.

    Also, please note that David Wells provided way too many SPECIFIC details. Lying? I don’t think so…. Let’s see if his current statement will hold up under a polygraph test, shall we?

    Also, how interesting that the prosecutor Roger Gunson, says in the film ( paraphrase ) ” had he been in Polanski’s shoes, he would have fled as well.” Yes, the highly respected MORMON PROSECUTOR!!!!. The Judicial misconduct was indeed….that bad…. Oh and did I mention the 2 PRETEND hearings that Rittenband concocted? The list of misconduct and ethics violations goes on and on and on.

    How interesting that the PRESS neglects to mention… that Rittenband was removed from the case.

    The LAJD says its been trying to get Polanski for 30 years. When questioned, they immediately scramble to produce a one page press release which they post on their website with some dates and blurbs over the years…. Anybody can write a press release. Let’s see the original papers.

    Seems evident that a corrupt justice department and a biased sensationalist News Media walk hand in hand these days… After all, an election year is coming up! Is it not?

    No wonder Polanski fled. Anyone in their right mind would and should.

    The question is… how can you can you condemn his corruption when you cannot condemn your own. What type of justice is corruption, dishonesty and finally hypocrisy ? It is he who thinks they are above the law, not Mr. Polanski.
