“In his initial statement after the scandal broke, Weinstein [offered] to atone for his transgressions by going after the NRA. Even for Hollywood liberals, that was too pathetic. It wasn’t virtue signaling so much as an attempt to buy an indulgence from the Church of Liberalism.” – Jonah Goldberg in Binders Full of Asininity [via nationalreview.com]
