Rock musician and gun advocate Ted Nugent compared Harvey Weinstein to a Nazi propagandist after the movie mogul announced his plans to make a film that tears into the National Rifle Association.


Those who watch Weinstein's film "will see that Joseph Goebbels and Saul Alinsky is alive in the form a fat punk named Harvey Weinstein, and as he tries to destroy the NRA it will backfire on him," Nugent said on Thursday's edition of the NRA's talk news show "Cam & Company."



Weinstein, who is Jewish, was discussing his plans to direct a film about the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto on the Howard Stern show Wednesday when the topic of guns came up. Weinstein said that just because he thinks Jews were right to fight back with guns during the Warsaw Uprising, it doesn't mean that guns should be everywhere in the United States today.


"Do you own a gun?" Stern asked.


"No... I have never wanted to have a gun," Weinstein responded.


"But if the story resonates that much with you," Stern said, "why not own a gun so that--"


"No, this is when you're marching a half a million people into Auschwitz. I mean, I'd find a gun if that was happening to my people. I don't think we need guns in this country," Weinstein said. "And I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area, and I'm going to actually make a movie -- I shouldn't say this, but I'll tell it to you, Howard -- I'm going to make a movie with Meryl Streep and we're going to take this issue head on, and they're going to wish they weren't alive after I'm done with them." Weinstein added that he predicts gun stocks will "crash and burn" because of his film.

The "Nuge" hit the nail on the head - Weinstein is another bloated self-important Hollywood nimrod (and so is Meryl Streep for that matter).

The only people who would buy into anything that idiot has to say are sheep that are already convinced they should vote "Ja" on the anschluss - and will march off to the showers without a peep when the emperor Nobama tells them to.

Gun owners unafraid of threatened Weinstein and Streep NRA-bashing filmProducer Harvey Weinstein and actress Meryl Streep will be taking on the National Rifle Association in a film the mogul promises will make members “wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them,” Emily Miller of The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Miller was following up on an appearance Weinstein made earlier that day on The Howard Stern Show, where the Hollywood bigwig and huge Obama contributor further declared “I don’t think we need guns in this country and I hate it.”

That attitude was evident when Weinstein was interviewed by Piers Morgan last November and insisted “Countries embarrass us around the world. And this is the only country in the world, we don't have gun law. I watched you, you know, talked about that.


“You know, quite frankly it's embarrassing,” he complained. “Obama was not embarrassing. The country is embarrassing.”


Weinstein was not all that embarrassed when he perceived his own safety on the line, upping his security when he felt threatened by the Church of Scientology following an angry response to the film “The Master,” which his company distributed, and which "did not make back its $30 million budget."
As for Weinstein’s threat to make NRA members rue the day they were born, and the notion that gun owners should somehow be afraid of that, there is a strong “Bring it on!” sentiment, as colleague Dave Workman explains in his latest column.


“If history is any indicator, the NRA has enjoyed rising membership and gun sales have been booming while the Left attack machine has been in overdrive for the past year, trying to diminish gun rights,” Workman writes. “Based on that experience, a sneering feature film attacking gun rights could result in an NRA membership overload and bring even more people through the doors of gun shops and sporting goods stores.”


The one reality that’s been demonstrated time and again is that AstroTurf money is no match for motivated and committed grassroots activists, and against those who will not disarm, it is useless.


It’s curious that a producer with his track record has seemingly forgotten that people, particularly in challenged economic times, go to movies to be entertained and awed by spectacular effects, not to be lectured to, and a project born out of personal hatred that sets out to alienate such a significant portion of the public is doomed from the start at the box office (although it will no doubt be critically acclaimed by “progressive” political and media elites). If Weinstein wishes to spend millions of dollars on a social engineering project, all gun owners need do is nothing, except maybe ridicule him and dare him to.

I imdb'ed this guy, and he's had a hand in a small handful of movies I've actually even cared to see, and even fewer that I've liked even marginally, and he has a bunch of garbage I have zero desire to see. I could care less what this ignorant buffoon does. One could just watch whatever scarce movies of his that are found remotely interesting for free on some streaming website and he wont make a dime off of it, gotta hate when you work for free.
