The American Culture War – Weinstein Takes on the NRA


By D.J. Wilson – In the words of William F. Buckley Jr., “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.” That’s a sweeping generalization, but there is much evidence to demonstrate that this is true. Attempts to deny political, social and economic freedoms are part of a broad liberal plan to undermine traditional values. Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is proof of “liberal intolerance”. He put up his knuckles and is threatening to fight the NRA Hollywood-style and may possibly challenge your second amendment rights.

Recently slamming the National Rifle Association, Mr. Weinstein made remarks on The Howard Stern Show to announce a new anti-NRA movie titled The Senator’s Wife starring Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep. Weinstein, co-founder of The Weinstein Company and Miramax Films, describes the movie as “the new Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” This is in reference to Frank Capra’s film starring James Stewart about a man’s fight against political corruption in Washington. Weinstein said “they’re (the NRA) going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

It has been suggested that The Senator’s Wife will focus on the powerful gun lobby’s efforts to defeat legislation introduced following the deeply tragic Aurora and Newtown shootings. President Obama blames intimidation of senators as a reason for the legislation’s failure and states the gun lobby and its allies “willfully lied” over a big brother gun registry. When it comes to gun control, it’s not a cut and dried issue. Emotions run high and House Republicans walk political tightropes. They face pressure from constituents and the gun lobby in an era of public distrust of a President who favors federal control. Like fellow fundraising star George Clooney, Harvey Weinstein joined the ranks of Hollywood moguls to host an “elite” event at his home for president Obama, to the reported tune of $35,000 per person. As a staunch supporter of Obama, it is likely the President’s actions will be portrayed as strictly “angelic” in Weinstein’s production.

In his interview with Stern, Weinstein says “I don’t think we need guns in this country, and I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area.” This statement clearly challenges second amendment rights. He discusses his project Mila 18, an adaptation of Leon Uris’ book set in German-occupied Warsaw, Poland before and during World War II. Weinstein says it’s “not a Holocaust story as much as it’s an adaptation of Jews with guns” and that he would “find a gun” if faced with the horrors of the Holocaust. This is ironic since he amassed much of his fortune producing films which include graphic violence and/or sex. Movies like Kill Bill, Halloween, Piranha 3DD and Rambo are examples. In fact, Rambo has one of the most ferocious gun fights ever seen on the screen. It appears Mr. Weinstein isn’t anti-violence or guns since he’s made his millions glorifying gun violence. Perhaps he’s just another liberal more interested in politically “brainwashing” or “bullying” those who disagree with him on the subject of gun control.

George Clooney's "The Monuments Men", (a film about WWII) was released nationwide yesterday. Please be certain to not attend. Spread the word to all of the Pro Gun friends you to know that this left wing actor will use all of the profits from his films to demonize guns to the masses. Yet he will glorify gratuitous gun violence in his for profit movies in order to spread his anti-gun propaganda. Harvey Weinstein is another of this ilk that glorify gun violence on film and use it to fund his anti-gun agenda.

It will eventually be free on cable or regular TV.

And a film attacking the NRA? Pah-leeze. "Runaway Jury" was supposed to attack the gun lobby, and it was a big flop. The only people who will see Weinerstein's flop will be liberals anyway, mostly anti-gunners. I'm sure 548, Stl Flyn and Traders will be cheering for it at the Oscars, though.

Harvey Weinstein is a prime example of how Jews get a bad name.

There are plenty of adjectives to describe him, and none of them are good.

Liberals OWN HATE.

They talk it
They live it
They vote it
They breath it
They hide it by claiming they are "Progressive's"

"Progressive" is a communist term. It means a person who is progressing towards communism.

"Reactionary" is the communist term for someone who is reacting against communism.

So in essence "progressive" means someone who is a student of, and is converting to, communism.
