Oh the hypocrisy! Did you read Harvey Weinstein’s written statement published last week in the New York Times? The one where he made a bunch of nonsense excuses for his nearly 30 years of disgusting and immoral behavior toward women and then had the sheer gall to try to shift blame over to the NRA.
Let me get this straight. So Harvey Weinstein, the man who made hundreds of millions of dollars making mega-violent movies such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Kill Bill,” and “Inglourious Basterds,” is blaming the NRA, a group that advocates responsible gun ownership, for his depraved sexual behavior?
As Chris Cox, the director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, told Fox News, “the NRA’s spent millions teaching safe and responsible gun ownership while Harvey’s made a fortune off of movies that many find grotesquely glamorize gun violence. At the same time, he’s reportedly spent decades assaulting women and now he wants to lecture us about morality.”
But did Weinstein really say that?
See for yourself here and note this sentence , “I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I’ve decided I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre [NRA CEO] will enjoy his retirement party.”
This begs several questions. First, why does Weinstein need a place to channel has anger? What’s he got to be angry about -- other than having finally been caught, that is.
Second, what does the NRA have to do with Weinstein’s disgusting behavior?
And thirdly, exactly how does Weinstein plan to give “his full attention" to the NRA?
“I’ve gotta scratch my head on that one,” said NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch in response to Weinstein’s bizarre statement. “What, is he going to try to sexually harass us?” She added, “We don’t put up with that stuff, you know? We just don’t.”
