Harvey Weinstein Plots Propaganda Assault on Right to Bear Arms
As if it were not already clear that the Hard Left deliberately uses Hollywood as a hammer to pound society into the shape it desires, prominent producer Harvey Weinstein removes any doubt:
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.
A nice follow-up question would be whether Weinstein’s bodyguards own guns, but let’s not ask too much of Howard Stern.
Then Weinstein unveiled his plan of attack against the NRA, which he resents for defending the Second Amendment against authoritarians.
“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.”
They really do believe they can program our attitudes, like drovers maneuvering mindless cattle toward the stockyard — and why shouldn’t they believe it? Weinstein is an influential guy.
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.
Even the clownish King of All Media seemed to choke on Weinstein’s hypocrisy:
Mr. Stern pointed out the inconsistencies in Mr. Weinstein’s earlier comments about a project about Jews defending themselves during the Holocaust. The producer replied that the justification for using a gun is “when you’re marching a half of a million people into Auschwitz.”
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.
Also, the producer said he would have used a gun to stop from going to a concentration camp if he “found a gun, and if that was happening to my people.”
Apparently the group he defines as “my people” does not refer to the American public at large, who are to be left defenseless according to his plans for us.
I have a lengthy (and spoiler-packed, for better or worse) review of the third season of Mad Men (now out on DVD) over on the Pajamasâ€™ main page. Topics discussed include the showâ€™s slightly skewed politics and history of the Kennedy-era 1960s, amongst other things.
