Some weeks it’s easier to settle on our finalist for our Jerk of the Week honors. One of the biggest criteria for being selected is to be an utter hypocrite, which is something that most progressive liberals excel at. They’re always about “do what I say, not what I do” as they feel that they’re entitled and don’t have to live by the same laws that they preach to us, the little people. Fitting that mold of hypocrisy is Hollywood big-wig, Harvey Weinstein.
It seems that Harvey Weinstein is teaming up with Meryl Streep (an actress who I think is vastly overrated) to work on a movie that will take the NRA “head-on” and make the guns right organization wish that it had never been born. This blowhard said on the Howard Stern show, “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it…Gun stocks – I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to crash and burn.” Yep, ol’ bloated Harvey is fed up with the USA’s love affair with the evil gun. But wait a minute….
If memory serves (and it does!), Harvey Weinstein is one of the biggest peddlers of gun violence (and every other kind of violence) in Hollywood. He has produced many Quentin Tarantino’s movies. A partial list of movies that Weinstein has produced: Rambo (the remake), Pulp Fiction, Grindhouse, the Kill Bill films, Sin City, Gangs of New York, Feast, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained. Not to mention producing Michael Moore “documentaries” of Capitalism: A Love Story and Fahrenheit 9/11. If one was logical and reasonable, hallmarks of a conservative, you could rightly conclude that Weinstein pushes ultra-violent entertainment in order to fatten his bank account.
Now Harvey Weinstein wants to destroy the NRA and those who support the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. This is par for the course for progressive liberals. They don’t live in the real world like us common serfs. They live in secure communities with lots of police protection and bodyguards. You can hire all the protection you want when you have a net worth of $150 million. But if some old lady wants some protection against gangbangers in her neighborhood, then ol’ Harvey just doesn’t give a damn. The hypocrisy is astounding as he glorifies violence in his movies, but then rails against organizations and individuals who want to legally protect themselves.
Personally, Weinstein can make any movie that he wishes. As a conservative, I believe in something that liberals do not: freedom. However, I would love to see his huge carcass trying to survive in a ghetto slum without the aid of his money or hired protection. As it is, Weinstein continues to flaunt his hypocrisy, probably hoping that jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon might salvage his reputation amongst his peers in Hollywood. He’s known as a jerk there too, even to other liberals, for his bullying ways. Oh well, at least he’s an equal opportunity jerk, I guess. Still, I’m sure his “documentary” will be filled with the usual lies and distortions favored by vermin like Michael Moore and other progressive liberals. Congratulations for another win, Harvey Weinstein. This time, there’s no Oscar or Golden Globe. Just our Jerk of the Week honors.
