Quote of the Day: You And Whose Army? Edition by Robert Farago | Jan 17, 2014 | 162 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “They’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them” movie producer Harvey Weinstein speaking to Howard Stern, quoted in Harvey Weinstein to Take Aim at NRA in New Movie [via swampland.time.com] comments jkp says: January 17, 2014 at 08:02 Didn’t they already try that in “Runaway Jury”? How’d that work out….? Reply K-Bizz says: January 17, 2014 at 08:07 I’m assuming not well since I haven’t the slightest clue to what you’re referring. Reply LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 08:13 It was a decent movie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runaway_Jury I never got the idea it was anti-gun, anti-NRA, or anything like that. If it was intended to be, it failed. My impression that it was about jury tampering. Oh, and a John Cusack movie to boot, which I like him in movies. Something I didn’t know until reading the wiki: “The film had been in pre-production since 1997. Directors slated to helm the picture included Joel Schumacher and Mike Newell, with the lead being offered to Edward Norton and Will Smith. The novel’s focus on big tobacco was retained until the 1999 film The Insider was released, necessitating a plot change from tobacco to gun companies.” Reply Marcus says: January 17, 2014 at 09:21 I liked the movie, as well. I always wondered how Grisham felt about the move from Big Tobacco to Big Guns as the bad guy, but my curiosity wasn’t great enough to look it up at the time. I suppose I could do that now. Or maybe later after my first cup of coffee. Soon, anyway. Real soon. Accur81 says: January 17, 2014 at 10:20 I hated the movie. It smacked of the liberal mentality of the moral high ground. The eeeeeevil gun companies are all out for a buck even though they *know* their products and being used exclusively for wanton death. The NRA is evil, gun owners are backward rednecks, and anyone who doesn’t realize those “truths” is unevolved and uneducated. That was a movie DiFi would love and felt like listening to one of her horrid speeches in movie form. I’ll never watch that garbage again. DrVino says: January 17, 2014 at 14:36 I suppose I’m stating the obvious when I keep saying that they’re going after guns the way they did after tobacco: the evil big corporation angle. DrVino says: January 17, 2014 at 14:42 We must guard and actively work to counteract the spreading misconception increasingly prevalent among the populace wherein they mistake their indoctrination for enlightenment Veritas says: January 18, 2014 at 23:41 Wow, if you didn’t think that the movie was anti gun, I bet you thought Dr Strangelove was pro nuclear arms. JasonM says: January 17, 2014 at 12:18 Don’t forget Shoot ’em Up. The gun company is the bad guy, trying to capture a baby to blackmail a senator to keep him from pushing his gun control bill…or something like that (I mostly blocked out the memory). And the private citizen hero who defeats the gun company’s hired thugs does so…wait for it…with guns! And he gets a merry-go-round to start spinning by shooting the metal bar with a 9mm from at least 20 yards away (while the baby he’s trying to protect is on the merry-go-round), so it’s accurate. Reply ThomasR says: January 17, 2014 at 12:30 I agree, the movie was based on a lone expert competition shooter fighting off, (with a gun) dozens and dozens of hired gun man;(that can get any gun on the black market) and then; at the end of the movie, the expert shooter, having killed 50? a 100? criminals;(with a gun) he makes a comment to the “evil” gun-maker, “How do you feel about the second amendment now?” with the idea that maybe the evil gun-maker will now see the how bad the 2nd amendment is for a society. Truly bizarre! Reply Chris says: January 17, 2014 at 13:29 Interesting, I must have overlooked all that from all the cool, exaggerated shooting scenes. All it made me think was, I now wanted to go to the range and shoot a pistol. ropingdown says: January 17, 2014 at 14:33 Most Harvey Weinstein-produced movies just leave me recalling the famous African hunting apothegm, “and use enough gun!” Vhyrus says: January 17, 2014 at 14:13 Shoot em up was, and always will be, a spoof. The main character is supposed to be an allegory to Bugs Bunny, which is why he is always eating carrots. Reply Lucas D. says: January 17, 2014 at 15:04 Why do shitty movies always get called “spoofs” and “satires” after the bad press starts rolling in? Real satires and spoofs are marketed as such before they come out. Gyufygy says: January 17, 2014 at 19:59 Okay, I think Shoot’em Up was about cramming as many gun fights into a single movie as possible, and then filling in the blanks with as silly and goofy a plot as possible. The only subtext to the movie was “MOAR GUUUUUNZ BANGBANGBANG”. Reading any more into that is a stretch. Reply smackit says: January 17, 2014 at 15:52 Weinstein is a LEFTIST first and then somewhere down the priority stack he identifies himself with the Jewish identity group (not the religion). In stark contrast here is a CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN JEW first and foremost talking about guns…… How many Jews the Nazis would have murdered if most European Jews had guns is impossible to know. But common sense suggests that the number would have been much lower. The Warsaw Ghetto revolt was begun with 10 old pistols and very little ammunition. Later a few hundred pistols and rifles and a few machine guns were smuggled into the ghetto. Himmler told Hitler he would quell the revolt in three days. It took four weeks. Many hundreds of German troops — perhaps a thousand — were killed or wounded. If the Nazis knew that Jews refused to go to roundup areas and that many Jews were armed, awaiting Nazis to enter every apartment, it is difficult to imagine that the Nazi genocidal machinery would have been nearly as effective. And, vitally important, even had the number of Jews murdered been near 6 million (which I doubt), not all ways of dying are equal. There is a world of difference between being gassed or shot to death while standing naked beside the mass grave you were forced to dig and getting killed while shooting a Nazi. http://www.jewishjournal.com/dennis_prager/article/jews_and_guns_20120808 Reply Diesel Dan says: January 17, 2014 at 19:36 Don’t forget, weinstein was the person behind the movie “KIDS” who also okay’d the hiring of the pedophile director for the movie “Powder” not to mention he seems proud about waging his personal little war against Christianity and Catholicism in particular. Reply Veritas says: January 18, 2014 at 23:43 Weinstein is a species of self hating jew. He is a barking moonbat who produces movies that are junk and will be forgotten in twenty years. As such he is very representative of Hollywood. Tom in Oregon says: January 17, 2014 at 08:06 I hope it’s a colossal waste of money. Reply Mk10108 says: January 17, 2014 at 09:02 Dig deeper…..when it fails….tax write off Reply Rydak says: January 17, 2014 at 08:07 I’m all for it. The best thing a liberal can do is keep talking, Only then does the general populace see what they are actually about. Enough with the catch phrases and slogans. Tell us your story Mr. Psycho Reply Accur81 says: January 17, 2014 at 10:22 Never interrupt your enemy while he’s making a mistake. Reply Templar says: January 17, 2014 at 08:08 How is the Jewish uprising going to be anti-gun anti-NRA? Reply Rokurota says: January 17, 2014 at 09:51 I think he’s talking two different movies. Is it ironic at all that he wants to applaud the armed Jewish resistance and simultaneously slander the right to bear arms? Nah. Reply Jus Bill says: January 17, 2014 at 09:54 It’s perfectly normal. If you’re crazy. Reply lolinski says: January 17, 2014 at 10:11 Nah. I am crazy and can’t see the logic there. ropingdown says: January 17, 2014 at 14:54 Harvey’s clearly got FOAG (fear of armed goys) on the brain. I personally volunteer to be his Shabat Goy for a week, so he can have some extra time to study the history and ethnic composition of organized crime in America. Maybe then he could relax a little. Or…maybe not. Reply lolinski says: January 17, 2014 at 15:51 Goys? What does that mean? If it is something jewish, know that Bosnians also are for arms due to similar/same circumstances. Gyufygy says: January 17, 2014 at 20:03 “Goy” is Yiddish for non-Jew or Gentile. And, in case you don’t know, Yiddish is a Jewish language that developed in Europe through the centuries. Kind of a combination of German, Hebrew, and I don’t even know what else. Chris says: January 17, 2014 at 08:08 I guess he thinks guns are only for the military, police and the movies. I wonder how many countless dollars he has made off of guns in his movies? No more Weinstein movies for me. Reply Rokurota says: January 17, 2014 at 09:51 Right. Like the Nazi SS in his movie. Wait… Reply SelousX says: January 17, 2014 at 10:09 I’m going to avoid any more Weinstein flicks in the future; what I do for Michael Douglas movies I can do for his. I can tolerate only so much hypocrisy, and I certainly don’t have to fund it. Reply joe says: January 17, 2014 at 11:15 And his private security detail.This pig is tight with the Obamas-a perfect match.I sincerely hope some Muslim terrorists behead him on video. Reply Jon R. says: January 17, 2014 at 16:08 I’m not going to stop watching his movies, but I will pirate them off the internet with a clear conscious now. Reply T says: January 17, 2014 at 08:09 I got a title for his movie, WEINFLOP. Reply Roscoe says: January 17, 2014 at 09:18 Laugh! That could have more than one meaning, but it’s all good. Also interesting: Howard Stern is, I believe, a gun owner. Reply Greg in Allston says: January 17, 2014 at 09:59 Stern is also licensed to carry in NYC. Reply Accur81 says: January 17, 2014 at 10:25 Because he is one of the select few elites with the wisdom to handle such a responsibility, while the common man clearly can’t. Makes sense, in NYC, anyways. Taylor Tx says: January 17, 2014 at 11:02 ha Accur81 my exact thoughts when I read that as well. The only people who get a carry permit in NYC are celebs or the chosen “elite”. Alex Peters says: January 17, 2014 at 10:39 I listen to Howard Stern every day and he’s very far from a gun-rights guy. He is an advocate for registration and frequently praises Bloomberg for “stop and frisk”. I still find his show entertaining and think his stance on these issues comes from ignorance. He’s one of those that would give up freedom for security. Reply NYC2AZ says: January 17, 2014 at 11:40 I listened to Stern for years before he went to SIRIUS. I found a similar theme of ignorance. Very much like a hormonal 13 year old boy that will say anything popular to stay popular so he can get laid. That being said, he understands the “give the audience what they want” better than anyone in his field and can be quite entertaining as a result. Homeguntraining says: January 17, 2014 at 11:44 Limousine Liberalism at its finest. Listen to the Phil Ochs song “Love me I’m a liberal” Drew says: January 17, 2014 at 13:34 I’m sure except for his freedom to shoot his mouth off. He seemed to struggle mightily for his own 1st amendment right because talking to strippers is so critical to the American way of life while protecting your family and home is just a silly notion conjured up by idiot rednecks. slicer87 says: January 17, 2014 at 14:23 Isn’t his target audience hormonal 13 year olds? His only claim to frame was shock radio, which is now overdone. Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:24 Stern lacks the self control necessary to refrain from uttering profanities in each and every sentence. This makes him unfit to possess or use firearms in any sane regime. Then again, New York… second only to Hollywood for douches per square mile. That’s where your money goes to die, BTW, courtesy of the entitled freaks on Wall Street. LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 08:10 I figure it would pretty much go like this; Streep would play a mother who has her little child (or children) killed by an active shooter and then goes on a crusade to get “common sense” gun confiscation legislation passed, only to be rebuffed by a fictitious NRA (or NRA-like organization) that uses every “dirty trick” in the book, lying, cheating, maybe even having her family assassinated. Perhaps ruining her financially. Basically Erin Brokovitch but with ‘guns’. All in a feeble attempt to get the audience to equate the NRA with those evil companies, or to make the NRA look even worse. I don’t think that fiction will change anyone’s mind. Only the hopelessly delusional that already think the NRA is some evil organization would fall for that. Reply Unarmed & unnamed says: January 17, 2014 at 08:32 That sounds suspiciously like ‘The Long Island Incident.’ Reply LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 09:03 I had never heard of that made-for-television movie until now, and after looking it up I would agree. It sounds a lot like that. But with Weinstein and Streep it would probably be larger, loose with facts, more graphic and more ’emotional’. Reply Andrew says: January 17, 2014 at 09:07 I sincerely hope its “My Baby is Missing” Meets “Running Man”! “A laugh-out-loud riot!” “Zany antics abound!” Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:26 The NRA ate my baby! publius2 says: September 5, 2014 at 20:31 The NRA Ate My Brain! ~ Lindsay Lohan as Shannon Watts Ryan says: January 17, 2014 at 08:39 With over-the-top graphic images of the murder itself..aimed at rocking anyone’s sensibilities to the core of course.

Then the day will be saved and liberals and their kids will praise relinquishing even more power to the biggest killer of innocents in history, government. Reply LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 10:25 At the end of the credits it will say, “Call your congress person” and have an 800 number you can call to get forwarded, plus a website. Reply Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:28 Erm, hospitals and doctors kill more people each year than guns – who’s going to target them with a movie? Reply John L. says: January 17, 2014 at 09:41 Wait … You mean the NRA *isn’t* an evil organization hellbent on world domination through fear, terror and superior firepower? Awww, man…..! Next you’ll tell me the Second Amendment Foundation isn’t a front for a cabal of secessionist preppers looking to extract Alaska and Texas from the union. Reply LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 10:26 Don’t you go giving away the SAF secret stuff! Reply joe says: January 17, 2014 at 11:17 At one time I thought Streep was a good actress-now she’d do better making ads for menopause pills. Reply Jan Pierce says: January 17, 2014 at 08:10 Is anyone else confused by this quote? It seems utterly contradictory on its face. Or maybe a better question is whether Weinstein is confused. “It’s not a Holocaust story as much as it’s Jews with guns. It’s my whole philosophy,” Weinstein said. “It’s the idea that when injustice is so great you can’t just march into the camps.” Reply Joel says: January 17, 2014 at 08:26 Yeah, I didn’t get that at all. What the heck was his point? Anyway, just some fat , self-important blowhard who’s about to waste a boatload of investor’s money on a flop. Too bad a great actress like Meryl Streep will waste her considerable talents on this mess. Reply Alex Peters says: January 17, 2014 at 10:43 My guess is that now that the project has been “outed”, I don’t see Meryl Streep taking the role. Her longevity is partly due to her avoiding controversy. While politically she may agree with Weinstein, she generally keeps it under wraps. A project like this could be a career killer. My guess is that the big names avoid this project like the plague, or it may sit on Weinstein’s desk for several years. Reply Salty Bear says: January 17, 2014 at 12:03 I hope that anyone foolish enough to invest in this movie DOES get their money completely wasted. Reply Ryan says: January 17, 2014 at 08:49 It completely baffles me how any Jew could be anti-gun. And that particular statement, when paired with the response to Howard Stern’s question, proves to me that Harvey Weinstein is so deluded that he doesnt even see the irony of his own words and actions. Reply Rich Grise says: January 17, 2014 at 14:34 +1 Reply LegitimateSportsmen says: January 17, 2014 at 08:59 He is apparently going to do a movie based on Mila18: Among the other topics discussed (including, at great length, Stern’s affections for Weinstein’s wife, Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman), the 61-year-old father of five expanded on his plans to direct an adaptation of the Warsaw uprising story “Mila 18.” “It took me 20 years to track this down and get it,” he said of the film rights to Leon Uris’ classic book. “I’ve gotta do this one. This has bugged me my whole life. This has been a project I’ve searched for ever since my aunt gave me the book when I was a boy. It’s an important story to tell.” http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1720523/harvey-weinstein-nra-takedown.jhtml His interview on Stern was apparently ‘all over the place’, which isn’t surprising given Stern. But also Harvey might be loosing it a bit (more). Reply Aharon says: January 17, 2014 at 09:11 I think the comment was referencing a different upcoming movie. The Holocaust one is not the anti-gun film. Reply jwm says: January 17, 2014 at 08:10 I’m a member of the NRA, not an official spokesman. In my unofficial capacity I say, bring it, bitch. Reply DisThunder says: January 17, 2014 at 08:53 Right with ya. Nothing I love watching more than fat elitist pricks waste their money. Reply Thomas Paine says: January 17, 2014 at 08:56 Weinstein IS talking some fighting words. its ironic when the anti gun guys threaten to hurt, kill, or maim gun owners. Isn’t it? Reply Jeff says: January 17, 2014 at 12:27 Weinstein talks shit all the time, calling Americans too dumb for this or that, even to the point of stating that Americans are too stupid to appreciate good film-making. Which if taken in that context, would suggest that he’s purposefully produced shitty films in order to achieve the success that he’s found, but that’s beyond the point.. The point is, Weinstein will insult and belittle you from afar, but if you ever found yourself in a position to confront him face to face about his statements, he would have a bodyguard cracking your skull before you could think twice. He’d be in the back of his blacked-out SUV and gone before you knew it. Reply Roll says: January 17, 2014 at 08:12 Who is this idiot? Ah, well FYVM. Reply Fug says: January 17, 2014 at 08:36 He is one of the biggest producers in Hollywood. It has clearly gone to his fat head. I know I’m not the only one who hasn’t been to the movies in years, because they suck, largely due to the efforts of men like Weinstein. These big shots believe they are gods and king makers rather than ring masters lording over the sideshow freaks of Hollywood. Let Weinstein and that overrated hag make their movie, nobody will give a damn. Michael Moore already made his attempt and it just showed that liberals are desperate and always barking up the wrong tree.

That one made hay over an unpopular president. These “free markets are evil, utopias are both possible and desireable” type movies are a different breed entirely. Reply A-Rod says: January 17, 2014 at 08:29 WOW, his hypocrisy is really showing. He made a ton of money with movies that feature violence and guns (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Equilibrium, Django Unchained, and Sin City just to name a few). Now he wants to make a movie to say guns are bad? Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. He should be thanking gun owners of America for paying to see his movies. Instead, he wants to dump on them. Nice. Reply Alex Peters says: January 17, 2014 at 10:45 Exactly. I wonder when he’ll figure out that taking aim at the NRA is, actually, taking aim at millions of law-abiding citizens.

Reply Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:38 No, we love Jews here. But we HATE Weinstein. NO comparison. Every race, creed and color has its heroes and villains. Weinstein has tried to be the former but has turned into the latter. But making most of your money through the use of firearms, then decrying their ownership in your own country, needs a special word with more force than simply: “Hypocrite”. Complete total asshole sounds OK. Reply Jonathan - Houston says: January 17, 2014 at 09:24 I wish the NRA would do more, as in a motto beneath their logo or a permanent talking point, to convey that it is America’s oldest and largest civil rights organization and safety-oriented group. They need to combat the impression that they’re the firearms industry’s trade association or lobbying wing, or that they approach firearms from a reckless standpoint. Hell, I have an in-law who knows nothing of the NRA’s vast operations and actually believed it is literally just a firearms fan club where enthusiasts just chitchat about guns. Reply Chas says: January 17, 2014 at 09:27 I’m really sick and tired of Hollywood morons lecturing the rest of us on things they know nothing about. My wish for Mr. Weinstein is that he loses his shirt from what I hope will be a monumental flop. Reply TexanHawk says: January 17, 2014 at 09:40 “They’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them” movie producer Harvey Weinstein — oops. Instant backfire. I already wish you weren’t alive. <— meant that not as a threat but meant in the same spirit as he. Reply Joethecuckleburr says: January 17, 2014 at 09:43 The only group that would want to disarm ordinary citizens are those that ALREADY have control of the government. No one who truly thought of themselves in the context of the Nazi holocaust would ever consider civilian disarmament. Those most prominent in the citizen disarmament movement seem to always to be Jewish, i.e. Weinstein, Feinstein, Schumer, Lautenberg, and others. It may be wrong to consider them as a racial group (Don’t try to tell me it’s just their faith) in the context of their push for victim disarmament, but being arbitrarily grouped is something that we in the freedom movement have come to expect. Marlon Brando popped off a few years ago about how “Jews run Hollywood” and then two days later was crawfishing like his life depended on it. Un-rehabilitated Catholic Mel Gibson got drunk and ranted about Hollywood Jews and has pretty much been persona non grata ever since. Why is the overwhelming majority of the members of the Communist Party USA Jewish; and that’s just the card-carrying members. You can call a person a liberal, a leftist, or a progressive, but if they believe in all Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto one would naturally think it safe to refer to them as fucking Communists. This brings on the big question: Is it that so many prominent actors must be communists as a prerequisite to becoming famous, or do they become communists after the fact to maintain their position in Lala Land? NOTE: There are freedom-minded Jews that I admire, like Irwin and Peter Schiff, Aaron Zelman/founder of the JPFO, those that promote the Austrian Economic Theory, and many others. However, it is just as racist to give gun-grabbing communists a free pass because of their race as it is to condemn anyone because of their race. Reply Robert Farago says: January 17, 2014 at 09:54 Also, this site’s Publisher and Managing Editor are Jewish. Never again. Just sayin’. Reply SteveInCO says: January 17, 2014 at 13:09 I have to say I simply can’t comprehend why the overwhelming majority of Jews are so fricking anti gun. Occasionally I will go to a rally and see a couple of people in yarmulkes holding up a sign that makes it clear that THEY understand what is at stake here; and I am sure to say “Shalom!” and thank them for standing up. Reply smackit says: January 17, 2014 at 15:19 Because for many Jews they consider their Jewishness is their RACE not their RELIGION. And since MOST ALL people want to believe in SOMETHING, they replaced their faith system of Judiasm with the faith systems of leftism or secularism Just one more insight learned by this Christian from my Jewish “rabbi” Dennis Prager. smackit says: January 17, 2014 at 15:28 To clarify the post above…. GROUP/IDENTITY would have maybe been a better phrase than RACE.. smackit says: January 17, 2014 at 15:40 Prager on Gun Control http://www.dennisprager.com/conscience-not-guns/ The take away….. Want to know a major cause of criminal violence in America? Try leftism’s denial of the importance of moral values among nations and individuals; its systematic destruction of character education; and its elimination of God as the source of moral law. Not guns. Jonathan - Houston says: January 17, 2014 at 10:33 I’ve never really understood the rabid anti-Semitism thing. I suppose it’s fun to crack the occasional ethnic joke in casual surroundings. Hell, the best I know I learned from either my Jewish sister-in-law or a Jewish former girlfriend of mine. So there. But as for a whole go-to-war or extermination mentality, I just don’t get it. I’m not claiming a halo here, just ignorance of the haters’ mindset. If anything, on historical, theological and philosophical grounds, I have much in common with the Jewish people. That’s why it’s so frustrating to hear such liberal lunacy come out of the American Jewish community and such a heavily Democrat leaning voting pattern. It seems against their interest and a betrayal of their heritage. Reply joe says: January 17, 2014 at 11:30 Jews aren’t a race-maybe a culture or loosely,a “nationality”like Irish,Italian,etc.Yes,the Communist Party was heavily populated by Jews but the vast majority of Jews had nothing to do with that.They do tend to vote Democrat-70% for Obama,meaning there’s good 30% like myself who know what a scumbag he is-actually what scumbags liberals are. People like Weinstein and Schumer could have benefited from military service,but they avoided it.Having been to war and been a cop for 25 years I obviously have no problem with guns-I think everyone except convicted felons;really crazy people;and illegal aliens should have free access to whatever guns they want to buy.Personally I’d like to see Weinstein burn alive in a plane crash on his private jet-he is a filthy hypocrite swine. And lastly-some of the most rabid gun grabbers around today aren’t Jewish-Malloy,O’Malley,McCarthy,Hickenlooper,CUOMO,De Blasio,Hillary,McAuliffe,Whitehouse,Pelosi,etc.,And unlike that moviemaker,these people impose restrictive laws that do actual harm as we speak. Reply Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:59 Most people forget history. It was the Republican Party under Abraham Lincoln which ended slavery – this was resisted tooth and nail by the Democrat Party. The current Democrats want to extend their welfare slavery to include disarming the population as a whole. A few measures at a time show the direction they’re going. Don’t be fooled. The Founding Father would not recognize modern politics. The major problem the Republican Party has is its tendency to select morons as its representatives. Fix this and all will be well.

Reply geoffb says: January 17, 2014 at 10:06 The movie will be called “The Senator’s Wife” Weinstein, who has been one of the strongest supporters of President Barack Obama, in this film will expose the NRA for their behind-the-scenes machinations of what Obama himself called “intimidation” and “lies” that ended up defeating legislation that would have expanded background checks on gun sales. … “They claimed that it would create some sort of big brother gun registry even though the bill did the opposite,” said Obama of the NRA, and he added, “this pattern of spreading untruths about this legislation served a purpose. Because those lies upset an intense minority of gun owners and that in turn intimidated a lot of senators.” … The Senator’s Wife will be a behind-the-scenes account of how the NRA used its influence with politicians to defeat the bill.

Reply Sammy says: January 17, 2014 at 11:42 I heard a commentator predict the end result of Ms Whinestien’s (don’t care if it is SIC) attempt to bury our NRA will be: Increased NRA membership, Increased gun sales, increased NRA contributions, and the loss of a considerable amount of ca$h by Whinestien et al. When are the antis going to admit the NRA is not like their banking lobby made up of financial outlaws. It is a true grass root entity made up of the majority of the Americans that are still left.

There is so much hypocrisy in Hollywood that it sickens me. They make a living of off giving people the very best in belt-fed bloodshed, then they say how much they hate guns. If you hate guns so much, how about you stop using them in your movies? Reply ropingdown says: January 17, 2014 at 14:45 He’s a business man. He naturally wants a monopoly on violence. He’s extending the “Kill Bill” franchise, though, so maybe he just wants to boost demand for home defense swords. Reply Martin B says: January 17, 2014 at 15:50 Obviously this statement means he has decided to withdraw from the violence of his movie making past, and is instead focusing on documentaries of the peaceful life story of the Dalai Lama, and giving us tales of butterflies and dolphins. Surely he wouldn’t say one thing and then do the exact opposite? Say it isn’t so!! Reply Kyle says: January 17, 2014 at 12:52 I am sure the NRA are just quaking in their boots over the idea of an anti-NRA movie.

Reply joe says: January 17, 2014 at 20:20 The Weinsteins are like turds in the punchbowl where the artistic content of films is concerned-they not only cut foreign films to shreds but also American films like All the Pretty Horses and Killshot.In the case of Asian films I try to get the Fortune Star productions whenever possible or the original Shaw Bros. versions-they havn’t been befouled by these stinkers.
