Bernard-Henri Levy worships Roman Polanski.

I am only thankful there are intelligent comments amidst the hero-worship of a rapist.

I do not care if Roman Polanski is the greatest film-maker alive. He drugged, anally and vaginally raped a 13-yr-old child, then fled the country. He does not deserve critical acclaim or hero-worship. A little repentance might make me feel different but most likely not. I am not a fan of people who insert their penises where they do not belong or are not wanted.

That is all.

I have said so many times here that we would have defended him in the same way had he been, not Polanski, but just an individual "of no importance to the community". I have repeated, over and over, that, far from protecting him, his celebrity, talent, and genius weigh him down as the source of this bundle of suspicions and crimes that would not exist for anyone else.

I don't understand. I mean it, I really don't see why people would defend a rapist. Listening to people defend Polanski as a person is one of the most confusing things I have dealt with recently. So he's a good director - fine. But he RAPED a CHILD. Every time it gets discussed I just want to run away with my hands over my ears and pretend people are better than they are.

I feel the same way... I'm just so incredulous and astonished and nauseated that defending him could possibly make sense to anyone.
