Hollywood Hypocrites – Producer Vows To Destroy National Rifle Assoc – Sen Ted Cruz On The Record

 

 

” In an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) outlined the hypocrisy of anti-gun movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who has cashed in on countless films depicting graphic gun violence. Weinstein revealed earlier this week that he is making a “big movie” featuring Meryl Streep that will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive.”

“ The Hollywood liberal elites, they have their view of things,” Cruz said with a grin after watching a montage of violent scenes from Weinstein films.

  The Texas Republican referenced a scene in “Kill Bill,” saying “you don’t see people wanting to ban knives.” “

Mark Steyn on the idiocy of Quentin
Tarentino denying the connection of film violence to school shootings

” HH: Quentin Tarentino is very defensive about Django Unchained. It is the most violent movie I have seen since Straw Dogs. It is relentlessly violent and gun-
filled. And he’s very touchy in the
aftermath of Newtown to people saying that which happens on the screen has any impact on the losers in the world. What do you think of that argument, Mark Steyn?

MS: Well look, Tarentino is an idiot. I said, I didn’t think Reservoir Dogs was a great movie. I think in a sense, he’s the Mantovani of violence, that he kind of makes it into easy listening Muzak. And if
you look at what he’s done with the Civil War, this latest film, he’s not in the least bit interested in the Civil War, because that would require reading a book. “
