Posted on 01/16/2014 2:47:17 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Sterns 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 dont think we need guns in this country. And I hate it, the producer said. I think the NRA is a disaster area.
... then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. I shouldnt say this, but Ill tell it to you, Howard, he said. Im going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and were going to take this head-on. And theyre going to wish they werent alive after Im 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 dont want to be involved in that stuff. Its going to be like crash and burn.

Mr. Weinstein went on to say, “WE’LL WIN THIS FOR MOTHER RUSSIA!”

Yeah - right - he’s in make believe land...there has never been nor ever be a Hollywood movie - or any movie for that matter that will be so influential as to change my mind about owning guns or anything else in my life...movies are entertainment - that’s it - nothing more!
What a tool...
..gun sales will increase
Useful idiots at work!
Mind bogglingly stupid people.
Will that dump get rid of his armed body guards? Dubious
But I thought movies have no effect on peoples' behavior? That's what Hollywood says every time there is a mass shooting and the perps were mimicking a movie or a video game.
Oh no, I am so frightened
This could be a pretty passable definition of "wishful thinking"
Or more likely, “I have a different constitution, a different brain, ....I have Tiger Blood.”
‘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.;
IOW this is a propaganda film hatched by some political hack in DC and executed by Hollywood.
Just remember that the defining characteristic of these people is the ability to think two different and contradictory thoughts at the same time. And consider it perfectly natural and logical.
To paraphrase the farmer in ‘Babe’ to Harvey and Meryl... “That’ll do, fascist pigs. That’ll do.”
Yeah sure, Harvey, whatever.
This movie either has zero effect or causes an increase in sales.
Anti gun movies from Hollywood are a dime a dozen
Actually my little film company had considered ways to make Ross’s great pro-gun book “Unintended Consequences.”
And like every other attempt by the far-left looney-lib media to produce a film with a strong leftist message, it’ll bomb at the box office. Every. Single. One. Failed.
“Im going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and were going to take this head-on. And theyre going to wish they werent alive after Im 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. “
Only without the charm, wit, or intelligence.
“The movie mogul said his vision was to scare people away from firearms. He foresees moviegoers to leave thinking, Gun stocks I dont want to be involved in that stuff. Its going to be like crash and burn. “
LOL, I’m forecasting a record year for Smith and Wesson.
What a pretentious windbag.
soooo if these fools do not like something they will make sure you can’t either do or have it.
Whereas if they like something like homosexuality or abortion they will shove it up your ass regardless.
Libs like obammy are a-holes.
Marge: “We have to do something! Those evil Gun People are hurting The Children. We have to find a way to Stop Them!”
Wally: “I know, let’s put on a Talent Show”
Sounds like a real blockbuster. I can’t wait.
Lucky for me I have been able to afford all my ammo without issue, have not gone to a movie since 1997.
“Pictures were made to entertain; if you want to send a message, call Western Union.”
Meryl Streep-I am shaking in my boots!
Of course the fat FJB doesn’t own a gun...his 24/7 security detail has plenty of them.
The irony here is too delicious to pass up...
If the uniparty & statists have there way Harvey, the FIRST people lined up against the wall and shot after all the guns are banned and confiscated will be YOU and all the other media propagandists...
Useful IDIOT doesn’t come even remotely close to describing his ilk...
Looking forward to it.
Not to watching it, mind you.
I’m looking forward to it driving 1,000’s of new converts directly in to the welcoming arms of the NRA.
Stuff like this always does.
Considering most people do not manage their own stocks....and even if they did...why would they sell their stocks on about the only thing growing in sales way above the average trends...
This idiot is going to be very disappointed that “gun stocks” won’t crash and burn....
Imagine the libtards gashing of teeth if conservatives made a movie about something more dangerous then guns...public sector unions...
Just heard its received an Oscar nomination
First thought: Really? Increase from current astronomical quantities???
Second thought: Yes ... Harvey is jealous of Barry Benghazi ... he dreams of being named "Firearm Salesman of the Year".
His target market segment, "frequent moviegoers who trade stocks" is probably an awfully small group.
I trade stocks. I haven't been to a movie in years. Who has time?
He might not own a gun, but I’m willing to bet he lives in a gated community protected by armed guards.
What is his next project, a film to make "teens" and "youths" pull their frickin' pants up?
No doubt after she appears in this film playing some victim of an "assault" weapon I'll renounce all the rights granted to me under the Bill of Rights.
Ha ha! You nailed it. That slave movie is predictably up for every damn award they give out, and hardly anybody saw it.
Just another flop for slob Weinstein.
Meryl + Harvey = Box Office Poison.
Another movie no one will show up to see because it is stupid and boring.
We could not ask for a better gift.
Nothing like some leftist idiot reminding the people that democrats are all about taking away your rights, starting with the very means to protect yourself.
Well played Weinstein...well played - lol!
Guns stocks? Would you burn this?
harvey, harvey, harvey, Bless your heart.
I wonder if Weinstein understands the difference between “gun stocks” and “stocks in gun companies”?
Pour billions into this project you pos... Get that washed up *#} catcher to invest her wealth. It will be the lowest attended movie in the history of holly weird and the end of people wanting to work with you!
perhaps the NRA will recognize this announcement as a golden opportunity to prepare an appropriate PSA to release simultaneous to the release of Weinstein/Streep’s ads for this movie by revealing - through photo/video documentation and personal identity of each of the people involved in this film - exactly how “courageous” anti-NRA/anti-2A hypocrites $upport “guns-for-hire” to protect themselves and what they personally protect from their ideological redistributionists.
They have a pretty high opinion of the value of their opinion to others.
I hate Robin Williams too. He’s just as clueless.
