MILLER: Harvey Weinstein and Meryl Streep new movie to make NRA ‘wish they weren’t alive’
Washington Times ^ | Jan 15, 2014 | Emily Miller

Posted on 01/15/2014 7:14:55 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

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 producer replied that the justification for using a gun is “when you’re marching a half of a million people into Auschwitz.”

There you go ladies and gentlemen, finally a liberal admits to wanting to bring genocide upon the people.

Question 2: Do your bodyguards, residential security people and studio security carry firearms? Because I’ve guarded big name Hollywood people, VIPs, CEOs, diamond merchants and etc. and I always had a pistol. He doesn’t need a gun if he’s surrounded by them, just like Dear Leader and the Beltway elites.

More political agenda from Hollywood.

Now imagined a conservative movie was made, I bet there would be lawsuits and calls to the FEC to have it banned as a political advertisement in an election year

Well, Hollyweird Trash. A little thing called the 2nd Amendment reads: “Shall NOT be infringed”

And I like my guns, I WILL KEEP MY GUNS. And my neighbors will too.

Hollyweird, Forget what you’re thinking.

Just because this fat, ugly, over paid libtard has a very hot wife and his boy in the white house, he thinks his propaganda movie with La Meryl using an accent will destroy the NRA...ha!
As long as bad guy dopes pick on little old ladies and elementary school kids, the NRA will live.
Hey Harv, go back into your Hollywierd bubble and eff off.

I know I hang on what Meryl and Harvey baby think, don’t you?

I think they may get a surprise what the NRA is sorry about.
I bet on backfire if this duo gets too noisy with pushing their pro-pacifist/be-a-victim schlick.

I went to school with a lot of the kids of Hollywood. Why did their famous, rich parents put them in my school, and not the public one? Because they felt their kids would be safer.

Why were their kids safer?

Could it have been the armed guards?????

Harvey Weinstein hired security to protect him from Scientology

Some of the "gun free" movies Harvey has produced:

Rambo, Kill bill1, Kill bill 2, Kill Bill 3, Inglorious basterds, Django unchained, Pulp fiction, in other words some of the most violent movies ever made.

I saw a TV show this morning which was just about as far out as one could get on gun control. The show was Hawaii 5-0.

Someone was shipping a few .25 automatic “Saturday Night Specials” into Hawaii. Of course McGarret thought he had all guns under his control

The part that was so overplayed that it was funny, is that each of these ordinary people, as soon as they got ahold of one of these guns, they turned into something like Mr. Hyde. They had been Dr. Jekylls before the gun touched them and like some magic elixir the mere holding of the gun turned them back into Mr. Hyde.

I think that show had to be the worst and most dishonest pro gun control show ever.

The idea that a postman, finds a SNS in his collection box, then his lighting changes to harsh below his face pointing up to his face and making him look evil. This just from picking up one of those evil guns.

This kind of crap has been going on at least 60 years of course not just about guns but all liberal campaigns.

The issue is these people do not understand how much of a mistake taking on guns in this would be.

They think Duck Dynasty was a big deal?

Oh, Mr. Weinstein is anti-gun, eh? Well, let's think about how many movies this hypocrite has enriched himself with that glamorize gun violence:

I'm sure he's donating all those profits to victims of gun violence, right?

Up to now, Weinstein pretty much made his bones in the entertainment business by trashing Christianity and Christian institutions in his films. Looks like he’s now expanding his pogroms to include gun owners too.

Go right ahead. Every single movie over the last several years that was made in an attempt to send a leftist political statement has bombed, Maybe it’s a good time to short Weinstein’s little movie company.

It would probably astound the younger generations of liberals to find out that there was a time when Hollywood actually made patriotic movies.

Let him waste a couple million with his pet project. If it hits big fine, in a country crowded with all types of people, lots of movies hit big at the box office, but have no lasting change on our culture. Meryl Streep is a known alarmist. Wasn’t she in the group warning us about Alar, a chemical that makes an apple look shiny? Turned out Alar was not such a big deal after all. The sky can only ‘almost fall’ so many times, then the majority of folks tune you out. Meryl is sort of last century’s actress, anyway. Her clout is greatly diminished.

Weinstein doesn’t carry a gun....that’s what his BODYGUARDS are for.

If he’s so scared of the NRA, why is he mocking them? I notice they never make fun of Muslims - is it because Muslims tend to behead the people who harass them?

He’s a left wing blowhard kook. I was listening this morning. Just before he talked about this movie (which my bet will never materialize) and how he thinks there should be no guns, he talked about making a movie about the Warsaw Uprising... which of course could not have happened without... guns. Hypocrite.
