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?

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
