A few weeks after that day on set, Fraser calls me. There’s something he wants to tell me that he couldn’t quite bring himself to relate in London or New York. He’s sorry about that, he says—that he didn’t have “the courage to speak up for risk of humiliation, or damage to my career.”
Certain pieces of what he tells me have already been told, it turns out—but this is the first time he’s ever spoken publicly about any of it. The story he wants to relay took place, he says, in the summer of 2003, in the Beverly Hills Hotel, at a luncheon held by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that hosts the Golden Globes. On Fraser’s way out of the hotel, he was hailed by Philip Berk, a former president of the HFPA. In the midst of a crowded room, Berk reached out to shake Fraser’s hand. Much of what happened next Berk recounted in his memoir and was also reported by Sharon Waxman in The New York Times: He pinched Fraser’s ass—in jest, according to Berk. But Fraser says what Berk did was more than a pinch: “His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around.” Fraser says that in this moment he was overcome with panic and fear.
America is the source of its own troublesPublished by NiteMayr on February 22, 2018
It’s far past time that North America looked at itself and said “why have there been more civilian shootings here than in Europe”
If we believe the news out of Europe it’s crawling with insane Jihadists with bombs, knives and guns who are killing with impunity. The UK is a desolate wasteland full of bullet-holes and France was burned to give glory to Allah.
That’s what we’re being told. So North Americas gun issues are like nothing compared to the savage times in the Old World.
But that’s not true, is it?
The Guns come from the ‘States and spread out, like a pandemic. They are everywhere, and always nearby. Like Spiders or Rats, infesting the Western World, a social disease that gives only the infected any pleasure and makes the rest of the world walk on eggshells, less they get shot by an open carrier of the condition.
Europe is less than 2000 miles from war-zones, but doesn’t find itself dealing with nigh weekly mass shootings. What excuse does North America have?
