On Double Standards

January 17th, 2014

Harvey Weinstein and Meryl Streep have announced their intentions to make a feature film bashing the NRA. Weinstein is the founder of Miramax, a company known for producing wholesome family films that teach nonviolent solutions to life's problems. Pulp Fiction, Death Proof, Sin City, Django Unchained, and Inglourious Basterds are just a few of the heartwarming movies he's bankrolled and produced.

There's no small irony in the fact that he's a big fan of gun control. I can't fathom what philosophical justification he has for condemning the instrument while celebrating the act of violence to the extent he does. Whatever helps him sleep at night, I suppose.

Weinstein claims the new movie will be something along the lines of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. He added, "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."

If you look back over the rhetoric used in the gun debate last year, you'll find one side wishing violence and tragedy on the other. Hint: it's not the NRA.

    And he will get the support. This is what is so absolutely absurd. Of course I chalk this up to the classic idiom – Do as I say not as I do. Enough is enough. I have vowed never to remain silent again with respect to the 2nd Amendment. I constantly correct others who say they believe in hunting and think it is ok to own guns for this. Bravo to the media since this attitude permeates our society.

    Thanks for you postings. I always look forward to them.
