Sex Abuse Accusations against Stallone Call for Consistent #MeToo Treatment

As far as Stallone is concerned, your right to keep and bear arms is“expendable.” And that may go double for women. (Official Facebook Page of Sylvester Stallone)

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Sylvester Stallone was accused of sexual assault in a police report filed in Santa Monica,” The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Thursday. “The alleged victim filed a report last month … The incident occurred in the 1990s. No further information was available.”

The BBC goes a step further in its description by flat-out calling it “rape.”

Whatever it’s called, Stallone adamantly denies it. Besides, the statute of limitations has reportedly run out, and what a DA would be able to do with any “evidence” uncovered now remains unclear.

So why should we believe a decades-old accusation, aside from “progressive” insistence via the #MeToo movement that the default position is a due process-free public lynching?

In Stallone’s case, there have been past allegations by a 16-year-old girl that were contemporaneously reported to the police as “vouched” for by a retired detective, and that allegedly resulted in a threat to “beat her head in” if she told anyone. And there was another corroborated 2008 report in the New York Post where Stallone made jest of violence against women:

“The talk quickly turned to women, with Sly denying Janice Dickinson's claims he injected her with steroids. ‘The only thing I injected her with was my fist,’ he joked.”

And then there was the “payout deal” with his half-sister and Stallone’s “history of denying women’s claims of sexual abuse” that included a 2001 lawsuit alleging “Stallone ‘forcibly pinned”’ [a woman] against a wall, tore her clothes, pushed her onto a sofa and ‘attempted to forcibly have sexual intercourse’ with her.”

Powerful men have been brought down by a lot less, no? Stallone’s Hollywood production partner in so many of his film successes, Harvey Weinstein, will most likely “never work in this town again.”

What does any of this have to do with guns, which is presumably why readers come to AmmoLand?

Women who can defend themselves are less likely to be raped, and alleged abuser Stallone, like Weinstein, is a Hollywood gun hypocrite.

In the archived NY Post link above, note the story starts out saying “Sylvester Stallone had an armed guard deliver an advance screener of the new ‘Rambo’ to Howard Stern.” That would be in New York City, where only the connected and their functionaries are deemed worthy of “permits.” And note a bodyguard (who was shot dead by police a few years later) was reported to have been part of the alleged threesome with the 16-year-old.

Stallone is also reported to have a concealed carry permit of his own, in that part of “may issue” California that generally imposes “may not” on the unconnected. Yet he is on record from years past supporting the Brady Center, an “assault weapon ban” and a ban on handguns that goes the extra mile:

Access Hollywood then showed a clip from a comment he made in London a few weeks ago: “Until America, door to door, takes every handgun, this is what you're gonna have. It's pathetic. It really is pathetic. It's sad. We're living in the Dark Ages over there.”

Why aren't #MeToo advocates demanding to remove this statue? (Philadelphia — visitphilly.com/Facebook)

“Over there”? Yes, the man who wants to control what Americans have in their homes is now living in England. Back to Stallone's interview with the show, he demanded that the 2nd amendment be abandoned: “It has to be stopped, and someone really has to go on the line, a certain dauntless political figure, and say, ‘It's ending, it's over, all bets are off. It's not 200 years ago, we don't need this anymore, and the rest of the world doesn't have it. Why should we?”

Despite all that, those who believe in due process (unlike those who call for door-to-door gun confiscation) demand it for all. “Progressives,” however, aren’t so picky, and are more than happy to see people’s lives and careers destroyed based on little more than innuendo.

So while I’m not calling for penalties without conclusive proof, I am pointing out it’s inconsistent for #MeToo advocates not to. If Stallone still has an elite concealed carry permit that would be denied to his accusers, why? Is that something his fellow gun-grabbers would deem “common sense gun safety”?

And with all the “progressive” furor over removing so-called “offensive” monuments, does the Democrat-controlled City of Philadelphia believe it’s appropriate to continue honoring Stallone by maintaining the Rocky Statue at the Museum of Art steps?

    1. When the snowflakes get tired of this unlawful act they will find something worse to destroy people’s lives with. This can stop if one of them gets their pants sued off them. Bringing this stuff up now after a decade or more is ludicrous.

    2. Again another some one comes out of the woodwork to accuse another well known star. As far as the statue of limitation are we have seen they do not seem to matter any more.

      1. This has become an Olympic event… a race to see who can get publicity (their “15 minutes of fame”) for claiming to have been victimized by the most famous celebrity, or the wealthiest businessman, or the most powerful politician, or… whatever one-upsmanship step becomes available.

        It has become a game! And it is perpetuated because mere accusations (without proof) in public are treated like already-accomplished convictions in court… for practical purposes, trial-by-media WORKS! As long as lynchmob mentality overrides due process, this stupid and dangerous game will continue. Until one of the accused successfully sues for slander, that is… then the “me, too” manure-for-brains idiots will back off and find some other ridiculous game to play.

    3. All these “accusations” decades after the events supposedly took place? Sounds like rabid feminism to me. What gets me is the “inappropriate touching”. Lord have mercy! I don’t know any healthy heterosexual male my age or older, or younger for that matter, who hasn’t touched a female at least once “inappropriately” at some time or other in their lives, including me. What is going on is no different than the majority of “date rapes”, which are in truth no more than morning after regret and basically false criminal charges. These most recent claims, with a few (very few) exceptions are nothing more than publicity stunts and attempts to get money. Sadly, the courts, law enforcement and the feminine driven, politically correct, press and public support all of these claims based on nothing more than the word of a woman, decades after the event supposedly took place. It’s the old, “male=bad, female=good” crap that has been shoved down our throats by the feminists in this country for the last couple of decades.

      1. I wish you were correct, but I’m not certain you are… every time I think Liberals have hit bottom, they prove me wrong. But truthfully, nothing a Liberal can do – absolutely nothing – will ever again surprise me.

    4. Put out an arrest warrant for Stallone, based upon the allegations. He is obviously engaging in interstate flight to avoid prosecution. Then he will never come back.

      1. 1990’s? If her allegations are true, why didn’t we here of them in the 1990’s? That’s WHY there are statutes of limitations in place Wild Bill…If I could figure out a way to pack up and leave with my sons and immediate family I’d be heading to the capitol of Uruguay. The US is run by psychopaths and the people are mostly brain dead lemmings. But lucky me…I’ll probably die here with a smoking gun in my hand.

        1. @Mark Are, I was merely suggesting a cheap, easy method of keeping an enemy of the Second Amendment out of the US. All of us Americans are obviously not good enough for Stallone. If you sell everything that you own here in the US, you will live like a king for the rest of your life in Uruguay, you would not live in a country run by lemmings, and you would not die with a smoking gun in your hand. With all those positive waves how could there be any other answer for you?

    5. Stallone also had an indoor shooting range built in his home in the 1990s and the newspaper articles are out there to confirm it. Also, let’s not forget what Charlton Heston stated on the Charles Groden Show after the Purdey shooting in 1989 “…I’m talking about banning machine-guns and assault weapons like the AK-47.” Many photos of the alleged Heston gun collection on the internet which included dozens of transferable machine-guns (probably owned under a California trust which was/ is the only way to possess them outside of an FFL SOT and CA DOJ licenses in Commiefornia).

      “Good for me but not for thee.”

    6. It is amazing how so many of these anti gun types:

      1. Have and carry guns in places where 99% of the populace cannot
      2. Have armed bodyguards
      3. Have quotes calling for banning and rounding up all privately owned firearms
      4. Criticize gun rights types as being parnoid and saying that no one is talking about banning guns
      5. Live in gated mansions or high end apts with security at the ready and the police always nearby
