More Fuzzy Liberal Logic

gunIt looks like the hypocrites are out in droves.   Meryl Streep is teaming up with Harvey Weinstein to make “The Senator’s Wife,” a movie which Weinstein brags will destroy the National Rifle Association, firearm manufacturers and move America forward to gun prohibition.   That’s a lot to demand of a movie.

Weinstein announced his plans on the Howard Stern Show during January of this year.  During the interview to promote his current movie about the 1943 Jewish uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust, Stern asked him how portraying armed resistance to Hilter’s Holocaust could be squared with  his hatred of guns, to which Weinstein replied that guns were justifiable to fight genocide.”I’d find a gun if that was happening to my people!”

So, let’s see!  It’s okay to pull a Hitler and take guns from law-abiding citizens but it is permissible to allow a possible future Hitler to be armed!   Where does Weinstein think he’d get a gun to defend “his people” if guns are prohibited?  It’s not like he could call the government arsenal and ask for one!

If Weinstein knew anything about history, he’s realize that the Holocaust happened not just because Hitler hated Jews and other classes of people he deemed inferior but because Hitler made it a priority to disarm his victims first so they couldn’t fight back.

Weinstein is predicting that his blockbuster movie “The Senator’s Wife” will create such strong anti-gun sentiment that nobody would want to own stock in firearm manufacturers.  “It’s going to be like crash and burn.”  The movie is intended to “expose the NRA for their behind the scenes  machinations of what Obama himself called “intimidation” and “lies” that ended up defeating past gun control legislation.

Of course, typical of the left, Obama didn’t bother to mention that he, Biden,  Bloomberg  and other gun control advocates had personally been intimidating moderate Democrats throughout the country to get the law passed.  Nor did Obama take responsibility for the lies that he and his administration incessantly repeated like 40% of gun sales did not include background checks.

Weinstein, a big Obama supporter,  raising more than half million dollars for his 2012 reelection campaign,  made his fortune making such nonviolent films like ‘Sin City,’ ‘Kill Bill: Vols. 1, 2,’  ‘Rambo,’ ‘Inglourious Bastards’ and ‘Django Unchained,’ and  worked as co-executive producer for ‘Pulp Fiction.’

I will give him credit, he admitted he was a hypocrite and swore off gratuitous violence on the Piers Morgan Live show.   But is he blowing smoke?

The Internet Movie Database  ( reports that Weinstein’s announced future films already include ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 3,’ directed by Quentin Tarantino.  It would be a pretty good trick to make this one nonviolent.  By the end of ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 2,’ everyone, Bill included, had been gruesomely murdered.  Another announced future film is ‘Halloween III,’  the continuing saga of a teenage serial killer.   Perhaps we can look forward to the serial killer now talking his victims to death.

Weinstein has also produced  three so-called documentaries by Michael Moore – Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko, and Capitalism: A Love Story.  Moore’s track record of deceit, fabrication and libel is immense but that doesn’t seem to bother Weinstein, or the majority of liberals in Hollywood for that matter.

While Weinstein has the right to make any kind of movie he wants,  supporters of the Constitution also have the right to point out the hypocrisy of a Hollywood liberal who made his millions portraying gratuitous  violent  films marketed to young adults, who thinks the world would be safer if only the government has guns.
