Bob Belvedere takes apart Harvey Weinstein and his radical attitude towards guns and gun owners
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association.
Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.”
Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” he said. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”
The shock jock asked whether the film was going to be a documentary. Mr. Weinstein said no, that it would be a “big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’”
The movie mogul said his vision was to scare people away from firearms. He foresees moviegoers to leave thinking, “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.”
The chairman of the Weinstein Co. (formerly Miramax) is one of President Obama’s biggest fundraisers. He brought in more than $500,000 from his Hollywood friends for the president’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee in 2012.
The 5 million members of the NRA are law-abiding Americans who are active in preserving the right to protect themselves and their families.
Mr. Weinstein thinks guns are necessary for self-defense, but only in other countries, during genocides and if the weapon is not personally owned.
Mr. Weinstein does not seem to know that the Nazis were able to confiscate the guns that the Jewish people owned based on Germany’s government registry.
These are the ravings of someone who is mentally ill, but does it rise to the level where you have to urge Whinestein be put in a straitjacket?
While Leftism is, indeed, a mental illness, I think it most cases it does not rise to the level of commitment because people like Harvey [does he have an imaginary friend named ‘Trotsky’?] does not pose an immediate danger to those around him and to himself [but, if he were to hurt himself, I wouldn’t shed any tears]. Fortunately, we are still in a position — despite the fact that our government is illegitimate and, therefore, lawless — to ignore this ignorant cretin, this waste of human flesh, this depraved and soulless dimwit, this dumpy and demented little putz. I am tempted to pray that he chokes on his own stupidity, but, well, I’m a peaceable man.
Weinstein is a buffoon who ignores history, reality, and stats from the FBI, CDC, and many other sources that show guns are used far more often for good, self-defense, than they are used to commit crimes. But in today’s culture, buffoons, if they say the right things, are lauded as wise somehow. Weinstein can make as many movies as he likes, but if he thinks he will turn Americans against the right to own guns, he is not just crazy, but stupid as well.
