Harvey Weinstein promises to make the NRA ‘wish they weren’t alive’ with new film

During an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio program yesterday, producer Harvey Weinstein announced an upcoming “big movie” starring Meryl Streep that will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive.”

“I don’t think we need guns in this country,” Weinstein told Stern. “And I hate it. I think the NRA is a disaster area.”

Weinstein claims the film will be a “big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’” And he is confident gun sales will plummet. “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff,” he said. “It’s going to be like crash and burn.”

Ironically, Weinstein is currently working on another project about Jewish people who defend themselves with firearms during the Holocaust. When Stern pointed out the hypocrisy, Weinstein insisted that it was like comparing apples and oranges. ”This is when you are marching people into Auschwitz,” Weinstein said. “I’d find a gun.”

“Where would you find a gun,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “The reason they don’t have guns is because the Weimar Republic registered everybody, and the Nazis took the guns.”

As Glenn explained, Weinstein’s comments prove he is not familiar with the particulars of gun confiscation in Nazi Germany.

“If Harvey understood that people were shot trying to turn their guns in because things were so crazy. The Germans had guns. Everybody had to register their guns. That’s where it starts,” Glenn explained. “‘Tell us exactly what you have.’ People in the Weimar Republic said, ‘Register my guns? That’s bad. What if it falls in the wrong hands?’ ‘Oh, we’ll keep it safe right here in the big vaults of the government.’ ‘What happens if the government falls into the wrong hands?’ ‘That will never happen. That’s crazy talk.’ The Nazis take over, and then they say, ‘Halt Jews. Turn in your guns.’”

“And if you know a Jew who had a gun or was hiding a gun, [they’d] kill him. Then it became, ‘Everybody turn in your guns because guns are bad, and we’ll keep you safe.’ So everybody did,” he continued. “But by that time, the laws were so upside down… So people were coming in to the police station trying to turn their guns in and they were shot in the streets by another policemen because you were a danger. So people didn’t know what to do.”

But being ignorant of that frightening reality is obviously bliss for Weinstein.

“Oh, Harvey. How did you become wealthy? How did you learn to tie your shoes having the logic that was on display with Howard Stern?

    Mr. Weinstein is woefully ignorant and uninformed. The NRA was founded in 1871 by a group of white people to counter the KKK and to teach newly freed black former slaves how to defend themselves. It is the racist leftists/democrats who were mainly involved in the KKK, and this has been right up to more recent times. The racists/leftists/democrats only like black people that are victims, the step and fetch people, not the educated, articulate people like Dr. Thomas Sowell, Herman Cain or Dr. Walter Williams. The leftists/racists/democrats want to keep black people down and dependent on government for their well being. His film is pure fiction, and he has zero credibility like so many other of his ilk.

    Thanks for the heads up Harvey. Now the rest of us who support the Constitution and our RIGHT to own and carry guns can simply boycott your movie and any other films you have anything to do with. And BTW, since you want Meryl Streep to be a part of your NRA bashing we can withdraw our support for her and any of the films she makes. And just in case you have forgotten it was this same attitude in Germany regarding gun ownership that put Hitler in power who was responsible for the death of 6 million of your Jew people. Better go back and read history.

    “I don’t think we need guns in this country,” Weinstein told Stern.

    Pacifists in this country were saying the same thing back in the 1930s. If they had their way then, there would be a good chance that the Japanese and the Germans would have been shaking hands at the Mississippi. Until the Battle of Midway, we were losing the war in the Pacific. It was by the grace of God or luck that Midway was the turning point. Our Pacific Fleet could also have been wiped out, leaving our West Coast defenseless. Admiral Yamamoto believed that an invasion of the US would be extremely costly. No there was no blade of grass statement. Bet some of you thought I was going to site it. He was educated at Harvard. He also spent several years in America as Japanese Naval Attache. He spoke fluent English and knew the American People. That means he knew a large majority of the American families were armed. How lucky for us the pacifists didn’t get their way or we could all be goose stepping now. Half of us under Japanese rule and the other half under Nazi rule. Those who insist that the American People would be a lot safer if guns are outlawed, that is their opinion and they have a right to it. They should be careful what they hope for because they just may get it. Remember outlaws don’t obey the law and will have guns. If Harvey Weinstein gets his wish of a disarmed American public, what tune will he be singing if some outlaw with a gun robs him or possibly kills members of his family? I said it before that the police are only minutes away, but that is little comfort when seconds counts. When history is forgotten or ignored, it repeats itself.

  • BlueMN

    I agree, let him speak! In that way, he’s his own worst enemy. Stay safe, Glenn Beck!

  • BlueMN

    Beck is partly right.

    It was the 1919 Treaty of Versailles that imposed a total gun ownership ban on Germany. The conservative Weimar Republic allowed Germans to own firearms again in 1928 and revoked the treaty’s ban. They relaxed ownership restrictions but had a strict licensing provision.

    The German Weapons Act of 1938 (the Weimar Republic was over by then) deregulated shotguns and rifles for “…persons whose trustworthiness is not in question.” It did also prohibit Jews from owning firearms.

    So unless you were Jewish, a Communist, or a criminal it was actually easier to get a gun under the Nazis.

    Because their Jews and Jewish liberals are cowards

  • Anonymous

    Unfortunately, most of the people in the 18 to 29 age group didn’t study about history so they don’t recognize what is happening. I talked to some kids that graduated from high school last spring. I was amazed at how many didn’t even know much about the atrocities caused by Hitler and Stalin against their own people. Even some Jewish kids didn’t even know much about the Holocaust. In the UK they no longer teach about the Holocaust because it is offensive to Muslims who insist it never happened. There are also Germans who are trying to convince the world that the Holocaust is a big hoax. When I was assigned in Germany in the late 1970s I visited Dachau. I had some difficulty finding it. The Germans in the area would either pretend not to understand you or would refuse to give directions. Eisenhower even predicted that as the years go on, more and more people would start believing it didn’t happen. That is why he ordered the gathering of all evidence possible in the form of documentation and film. His exact words were “Some day some son-of-a-bitch will claim that this never happened.” Arrogant people like Harvey refuse to recognize the path that the government is following. Many believe that socialism and government control of our lives is the only answer. Until recently, I lived near a Jewish community and have many Jewish friends. In 2008, the Jewish neighborhoods had Obama and other Democrat signs proudly displayed on their front lawns. Many of them were appalled and disgusted with the way Obama treated Netanyahu and how he tried to throw Israel under the bus. Many Jewish businessmen I know are up in arms about the constant new restrictions imposed by Obama and his Czars that makes it harder for them to do business. They are also appalled by the way Obama seems to be kissing the backsides of Arab countries that hate Israel. Many even suspect that Obama is Anti-Semite. Did that change their minds about voting against Obama or any other Democrats in 2012? Not in this lifetime. During the last election I went to those same neighborhoods and saw just as many Obama and other Democrat signs on those same front lawns. Ignorant useful idiots like Harvey will blindly and willingly follow the path to another Holocaust and drag the rest of us with them. This is what Khrushchev was talking about when he said that they will defeat us from within. History has been forgotten or ignored so unless we wake up we will be condemned to repeat it. Wake up America. If Joseph McCarthy was still alive he would be saying “I TOLD YOU SO!”

    I understand and agree with you. There is plenty of blame to go around. As I have said, unfortunately, most of the people in the 18 to 29 age group didn’t study about history so they don’t recognize what is happening. Most of this age group believe that socialism and government control of our lives is the only answer. On top of that, these young people can vote. I was also in favor of lowering the voting age from 21 to 18. Now that I look back, I believe it was a big mistake. Many of us in the older generations are also to blame. We blindly trusted the public education system and many of us didn’t bother to really look into what our kids were being taught. Many of us put our kids in front of that 19 inch baby sitter and didn’t pay attention to what they were watching. I wonder now if parents are paying attention to what their kids are doing on the computer. We Americans have been too complacent and did not notice all this gradually happening. Obama is just a small part of what is happening. This has been in the works long before he was even born. This is what Khrushchev was talking about when he said that they will defeat us from within. History has been forgotten or ignored so unless we wake up we will be condemned to repeat it. Wake up America. If Joseph McCarthy was still alive he would be saying “I TOLD YOU SO!”

    I am sorry but Politifact is a bunch of liars and have been proven so and still find it odd you liberals still use the clearly propaganda website because they ignore facts and spread half truths to prove their points.

    Here is another fact check group that says that they did help slaves own guns.

    http://www.fact-index.com/n/na/national_rifle_association.html

    And here is the quote from the article.

    “The NRA was founded shortly after the American Civil War by Union Army officers who were appalled by the lack of shooting skills among the Union soldiers during the war and determined to correct this problem by encouraging the shooting sports and marksmanship among the general population, including former slaves in the former slave states. This made the NRA very unpopular in the former slaves states and the NRA was considered an enemy by the Ku Klux Klan.

    Union Army Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate are the officially listed founders of the NRA. They were granted a charter from the state of New York on November 17, 1871. The first NRA president was Ambrose E. Burnside, a commander of the Army of the Potomac. Former US President Ulysses S. Grant, who had enacted the 1871 law declaring the Ku Klux Klan to be an illegal terrorist organisation, was elected president of the National Rifle Association in 1883. Nine of the NRA’s first ten presidents had fought against slavery during the Civil War. Including: Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock, Gen. Phillip Sheridan. During Reconstruction, Gen. Sheridan removed hundreds of local officials from office in Louisiana and Texas for violating the rights of former slaves and for failing to enforce laws for their protection.”
    Which is all backed up by documents that politilie ignores to push their left winged agenda.

    Among other historical realities, Mr. Weinstein does not seem to remember that the Jewish nation expressed a great resolve when they said “never again” in relation to the holocaust. There have been holocausts of a certain and different kind since then. Those who have been victimized, or not, do not suffer threats to their freedoms very well. That is a fact borne out in the histories of all nations and all peoples before the first man scribbled our first history in a cave long ago.

    Additionally to the ignored and forgotten history is the remade version they do teach the young. I saw a history text book of my granddaughter’s not long ago, and most of the content was so modified by progressives that it didn’t remotely resemble much of what I knew about it by actually being alive during the time period in question. What passes for education now is a disgusting sham – no wonder kids don’t know or understand the significant events of the past – and I am not just speaking of the 1776 – 1900 era, much of what has happened in the last 20 years is so mischaracterized by politicization that it is quite understandable that these generations don’t know what this country is about, nor do they understand much of the things it stands for. Most students now do not even have any idea how the government operates.

    The liberals and progressives have merged with the socialists to create an education system that no longer transfers useful or factual knowledge. They only learn the propaganda that the “fearless leaders” want them to know.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Apparently, Mr. Wienstein is unaware of the limits of his own hypocrisy, and also how few people will want to see this or any of his future efforts on the screen when he is through trashing the NRA and the millions of law abiding gun owners in this country.

    I can’t help but remember how many times that foreign enemies of the US have stated their reluctance to invade this country with armies of conquest simply because of the numbers of privately owned firearms here. We haven’t had any large scale military operations conducted on the continental US since the war of 1812, and that can’t be pure happenstance.

    The comment was ” The NRA was founded in 1871 by a group of white people to counter the KKK and to teach newly freed black former slaves how to defend themselves,” and that’s still not true.

    The NRA itself says, “Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association
    would be to ‘promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,’ according to a magazine editorial written by Church.”

    This scumbag Harvey Weinstein has made BILLIONS on films that glorify the illegal use of guns and murder, and has the unmitigated gall to make a film attacking the legitimate advocate of the American citizens right to bear arms, the NRA. I personally have stopped going to movies that provide a living for the hypocritical, leftist, lying sons bitches that propagate the agenda of the Socialist movement! I urge others to try to do the same if you believe in your rights to bear arms, but sadly, many will not for whatever reason. I fully understand many find entertainment from the films in theaters, but to directly or indirectly fund a company or individual that wants to take away your rights given to you by the founding fathers completely boggles the mind! Why?? What is to stop them from making other films that will inevitably take away other rights from us in the future simply because we continue to seek entertainment from those that want to reshape this great country?

    The hypocrisy has reached a boiling point for me, and I urge others to re-think
    their involvement in providing the funding of the Socialist agenda propagated
    by the Hollywood elite that is going out of their way to take away our rights!
    Someone out there may have started petitions or boycotts before, if anyone
    reading this is as outraged as I am and is willing to start something, speak
    out and I’m with you! Friend me on Facebook!

    he actually believes that american patriots who are armed and ready to defend ourselves, our constitution and our country are going to be scared of some make-believe movie made by some hollyweird sissies hiding behind and in front of some cameras. yea right.

    You keep begging the question. Was the NRA founded by a group of white people to counter the KKK and to teach newly freed black former slaves how to defend themselves? No.

    Were many NRA leaders against the KKK? Yes, but that is not the same thing. That right-wing website you linked me to didn’t change that.

    That is like saying a hospital built in a US city to treat all the sick people there and along the way also helps some sick people from Africa, “was founded to help sick Africans.”

    Also, I’ve read enough comments to see that most Tea Party people who comment here do just pull things out of their rears.

    On two occasions, my life was saved by legally-owned
    guns wielded legally by private gun owners.

    The first time, I was out jogging in South Carolina when a car full of drunks
    roared by; one of them pitched a beer bottle filled with wet sand at me, knocking
    me across a ditch into a neighbor’s yard (and knocking me out momentarily). I
    came to, and saw my neighbor standing over me with a .38 revolver, facing down
    these four guys who’d gotten out of their car, apparently intent on stomping
    the “hippie jogger” (I was a speechwriter for the SC Republican Governor at
    that time, but I had longer-than-crew-cut hair, hence the apparent animosity.

    Some years later, also in SC, I was at a friend’s store, taking photos for some
    publicity I was creating for him, when I heard a shot outside. Like an idiot, I
    stepped out, camera slung around my neck, to see what had gone down. A man in a car, laying in ambush, had just
    shot another man with a shotgun (the victim later lost his leg). The gunman saw
    me, saw the camera, and got out of his car to come after me. I ducked back into my friend’s store, intent
    on going out the back – but no back door. Oops.
    The gunman came in – I was in the corner, and the owner was by the cash
    register near the door. As soon as the gunman walked past him, the owner pulled
    out a .45 M1911-A1 and, pointing it at the gunman’s back, told him to drop his
    shotgun and run away, very fast, which he did.

    When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away – but if you have a gun (as
    I now do, along with a CCW), you don’t need the cops if your life is
    threatened, or if someone else’s life is threatened. Right, Harvey?

    It’s important to remember that the 2nd Amendment doesn’t trace to the Federalist Papers, but to Mason’s Virginia Declaration of Rights.

    Harvey Weinstein is a total ignoramus when it comes to history, and history of the Jewish people. He has more in common with Hitler and Goebbels than he does with Solomon or Moses.
