Gore Vidal: Polanski Is a Persecuted Jew
http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/19480/gore-vidal-polanski-is-a-persecu ted-jew/

Novelist-provocateur thinks religion, not rape, to blame for director’s woes
By Liel Leibovitz|October 29, 2009 2:00 PM|5comments

So why is Roman Polanski in a Swiss prison cell? To hear author, intellectual, and seasoned provocateur Gore Vidal tell it, the famed director’s troubles have little to do with having drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl all those years ago. Polanski, Vidal tells The Atlantic in an interview published online yesterday, is being hounded because he’s Jewish. He cites “[t]he idea that this girl was in her communion dress, a little angel all in white, being raped by this awful Jew, Polacko—that’s what people were calling him,” Vidal said, adding decisively that “anti-Semitism got poor Polanski.” In his defense, Vidal, who knew Polanski in the 1970s, seemed reluctant to address the whole matter. “I really don’t give a *,” he replied when first asked about his former friend’s woes. “Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of?” You, sir, are what we Jews call a real mensch.

Polanski and Tate had dinner with John Michael Frankenheimer (director of 1962 movie "The Manchurian Candidate") and Robert Kennedy the day before RFK was assassinated.

Quote:
Sharon had become very interested in the Presidential campaign of Robert Kennedy. She went to fund raising dinners in support of Kennedy and on June 3rd 1968 attended a dinner at the home of John Frankenheimer. At the dinner was Robert Kennedy and his wife Ethel. Sharon was thrilled to be able to spend some time with Kennedy and felt even more convinced that he would make a wonderful president. However, the next day Kennedy was assassinated.


Very weird.

Tate was killed in an attack by the Manson Family - apparently Manson expected someone else to be in the house...

Other members of the Manson clan was associated with Presidential Assassination...

I'm watching "The Ghost" on Film4 and indeed it is quite a dig at Tony Blair including references to the killing of the previous ghost writer - perhaps as oblique reference to David Kelly...

This is the wikipedia write up of Harris' Book of the same name!
Quote:

The Ghost is a contemporary political thriller by the best-selling English novelist and journalist Robert Harris.

In 2007 British prime minister Tony Blair resigned. Harris, a former Fleet Street political editor, dropped his other work to write the book. The ghost of the title refers both to a professional ghost-writer, whose lengthy memorandum forms the novel, and to his immediate predecessor who, as the action opens, has just drowned in mysterious circumstances.

The dead man had been ghosting the autobiography of a recently unseated British prime minister named Adam Lang, a thinly disguised version of Blair.[1] The fictional counterpart of Cherie Blair is depicted as a sinister manipulator of her husband. So astonishing are the implied allegations of the roman à clef that, had it concerned a lesser figure and were Harris a less eminent novelist, Britain's libel laws might have rendered publication impossible: Harris told The Guardian before publication, "The day this appears a writ might come through the door. But I would doubt it, knowing him."[2] The thriller acquires an added frisson from the fact that Harris was an early and enthusiastic backer of Blair and a donor to New Labour funds.[3]

The New York Observer, headlining its otherwise hostile review The Blair Snitch Project, commented that the book’s "shock-horror revelation" was "so shocking it simply can’t be true, though if it were it would certainly explain pretty much everything about the recent history of Great Britain."[3

False Flag attempt to blame Black Panthers
Charles Manson & his cult were trying to spark a race war in #CIA operation code named 'Helter Skelter'.
Tried to frame the Black Panthers for the killings
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/20/charles-manson-dead-cu lt-leader-sharon-tate

Manson and three female followers, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten, were convicted of murder and conspiracy to murder. Another defendant, Charles “Tex” Watson, was convicted later.

The second summer of Charles Manson: why the cult murders still grip us

Tate, the wife of Polanski, who was out of the country the night of her murder, was eight and a half months pregnant when Manson’s followers broke into her home in Los Angeles. They stabbed and shot Tate and her visitors, Jay Sebring, Voytek Frykowski, coffee heiress Abigail Folger and Steven Parent. The word “Pig” was written in blood on the front door. Tate, who had starred in The Valley of the Dolls, was stabbed 16 times, and an “X” was carved into her stomach.

The next night, his followers murdered couple Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.

Although the followers committed the murders, Manson had ordered them. At the LaBianca home, he tied up the couple before leaving others to carry out the killings.

After his death on Sunday night, Tate’s sister Debra told NBC: “One could say I’ve forgiven them, which is quite different than forgetting what they are capable of. It is for this reason I fight so hard to make sure that each of these individuals stays in prison until the end of their natural days.”

Alfred Dreyfus is being erased all over again
The banning of Roman Polanski’s new film, An Officer and a Spy, cries out for an Émile Zola to denounce it
From magazine issue: 11 January 2020
https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/alfred-dreyfus-is-being-erased-all -over-again

In London to promote a book, I received an invitation to a secret screening of An Officer and a Spy, Roman Polanski’s new film about the Dreyfus affair. I boarded public transportation to a clandestine destination, somewhere in England, to view what recalled for me the samizdat literature once produced in Communist eastern Europe. I looked over my shoulder several times to see if anyone was watching me; if the possibility of exposure wasn’t real, my anxiety certainly was. My emotional reflexes still echo the trip I took to Prague in 1983 to meet dissident writers during which I was followed. But why all the cloak-and-dagger dramatics now? Why can’t I reveal where I went?

An Officer and a Spy is untouchable in the Anglo-Saxon world. For now it seems quite likely that the movie will not be shown in the United Kingdom, either in movie theatres or on television. Nor will it illuminate screens in the United States. Polanski, in the parlance of Twitter culture, has been ‘cancelled’ because of his confessed sex crime against a 13-year-old American girl in 1977. More recently, a French photographer has accused the Polish-Jewish director of raping her in 1975, a charge Polanski denies. So dangerous is the potential backlash of collaborating with Polanski that no British or American distributor will risk showing the movie, which opened to great acclaim and box-office success in France, though some protests have occurred there too. No one, including my hosts, wants to be stoned on Twitter or picketed in their place of business.

In the darkened screening room, I got to sample the contraband. I know the Dreyfus story well, especially from Robert Harris’s historically accurate novel on which the film is based. I wondered how Polanski could improve on Harris’s excellent work, though I realise that novels and films are different species of storytelling. From the breathtaking opening scene, in which the uniformed Captain Alfred Dreyfus is publicly stripped of his epaulettes, buttons and gold braid — then his sword is snapped in two — you know that a talented director can do certain things with actors and a camera that we scriveners can’t achieve in words.

Dreyfus’s fraudulent conviction for espionage; his cruel incarceration on Devil’s Island; the malignant anti-Semitism that motivated the French military and political establishment; the courageous counterattack by Émile Zola and Georges Clemenceau — these plot elements are all well told. But what’s most impressive in Polanski’s film is Jean Dujardin’s brilliant portrayal of Lieutenant-Colonel Georges Picquart, who risked his life and career to exonerate Dreyfus and identify the real spy in the French army. This is no ordinary movie with a Hollywood ending: the last scene brings no redeeming catharsis for the audience or for France. But as I watched, the present-day irony of the situation began to dawn on me.

The real-life Dreyfus, a scapegoated Jew, was literally erased: the military sent him to Devil’s Island to torture him, and also to make him disappear from French consciousness: he was used as a proxy to avoid confronting corruption at the heart of the general staff. Now the movie Dreyfus is being erased in countries that sorely need to relearn the malign consequences of religious bigotry, groupthink and censorship. The effective banning — what else can we call it? — of An Officer and a Spy cries out for an Émile Zola to denounce it. British readers should remember that when Zola was convicted of libel by a French court for his famous essay ‘J’Accuse!’, he fled to safety in liberal England, where he spent a year in exile.

I know what Twitter and #MeToo will say: ‘You can hop the Eurostar to Paris if you really want to see the film, we’re also punishing Polanski the sex criminal, and this has nothing to do with Dreyfus. At long last, justice is being done in the name of anonymous women the world over, victimised by male predators, who will never have a Zola to champion them. In a revolution heads must roll, and the guillotine cannot always discriminate between the truly guilty and the somewhat innocent.’

So why not boycott or picket performances of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest? Wilde committed sexual abuse against underage boys, and I hear no cries for his ‘cancellation’. We at Harper’s Magazine have published two pieces by a convicted murderer, and about this I’ve heard not a peep of moral consternation. I condemn Polanski’s conduct, including his cowardly flight from US jurisdiction, just as I would have condemned Norman Mailer for stabbing one of his wives. But prevent their work from being read and seen? Is there a statute of limitations on these kinds of crimes, or does the mob decide who stays and who goes whenever it pleases?

My new book is about Graham Greene, a wonderful British writer and film critic for this magazine who stood up for the underdog and for the principle of freedom of expression. In 1982, he wrote his own version of ‘J’Accuse!’ in defence of his mistress’s daughter. Greene would have been sardonically condescending about the criticisms of Polanski in the United States: he would have viewed them as typical of Americans’ phony innocence. About his own country’s silence, I think he would have been disgusted.
John R. MacArthur, the president of Harper’s Magazine, has written the introduction to Graham Greene: The Last Interview and Other Conversations (Melville House).
