Hollywood Democrat and gun hater Harvey Weinstein is teaming up with fellow liberal Meryl Streep to make a movie that he says will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”
Weinstein babbled on about his hatred of guns to Howard Stern Wednesday saying, “I don’t think we need guns in this country and I hate it, and I think that the NRA is a disaster area.”
He then dropped his bombshell revelation about his “big movie – like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” big, and one, he brazenly predicted, would cause gun stocks to “crash and burn:”
I’m going to make a movie – I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you Howard – I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep and we’re gonna take this issue head on. And they’re gonna wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.
Interestingly, right before Weinstein ranted on how he hates guns, doesn’t own a gun, and never wanted to own a gun, he was talking about the impact the book, “Mila 18,” Leon Uris’ 1961 novel on the Nazi occupation of Poland, had on him.
“When you’re marching a half a million people into Auschwitz,” he said, “I’d find a gun if that was happening to my people.”
Noting that inconsistency, Emily Miller of the Washington Times nailed it, writing, in part:
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.
Mr. Weinstein has been watching too many movies if he thinks the good guys find fully-loaded firearms in convenient locations to use only when necessary.
Before Mr. Weinstein and Miss Streep start production of their multimillion-dollar effort to persuade Americans to give up their guns, they might want to look at the history books of what happens when you do.
