Harvey Weinstein, an extremely wealthy Hollywood hypocrite, is planning a propaganda film with Meryl Streep in it with a goal of destroying the NRA and stigmatizing gun ownership.
Hollywood has a bit of history with making “message” movies to sell a progressive left agenda item to the public via cheap, exploitative melodrama: Reefer Madness (1936), The Day After (1983), The Day After Tomorrow (2004), An Inconvenient Truth (2006), and so on. These movies used to have a lot of impact. The China Syndrome (1978) virtually shut down the American nuclear power industry. Since then, people have wised up, somewhat, at least. Audiences largely ignored the slew of antiwar and anti-Bush movies of the last decade.
The danger, though, is that the anti-Second Amendment forces are well-funded and relentless; and they will not stop until they achieve their goal: the legal prohibition of privately owned firearms. And no amount of fact or reason will dissuade them from pursuing this goal.
What’s noted in the article is that Mr. Weinstein favors complete and total prohibition of firearms from private ownership. He believes, absolutely, that the Government should have a complete monopoly on the ownership and use of firearms. But when asked about how he would have resisted the Holocaust, he obliviously answers he would have used a gun to stop from going to a concentration camp if he “found a gun, and if that was happening to my people.”
No, Mr. Weinstein, real life is not a movie. The good guys don’t just happen to find guns lying around conveniently. You would have been cheering as the Nazis enacted gun control and confiscated weapons from all your neighbors; because it would have made you feel “safer.”
