Hollywood Unhinged: Part Deux
In my previous article, Hollywood Unhinged, I talked about how Hollywood actress Meryl Streep used a speech at the Golden Globe Awards to bash our newly-elected president, Donald Trump. Now, there’s another problem brewing in Hollywood. A new television show called Six, which airs on the History Channel, debuted two days before President Trump’s inauguration. It was advertised as a patriotic TV show by the network, but in reality, mega-producer Harvey Weinstein used that marketing tactic to hide its anti-American plot line.
Co-created by Weinstein and brothers William & David Broyles, and starring Walton Goggins, the series graphically shows a U.S. Navy SEAL killing an innocent Muslim from Michigan in cold blood as well as committing numerous war crimes. There is no question that this show will probably incite hatred towards our military around the world, but it doesn’t seem that Weinstein cares.
As you may know, Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to left-wing agitprop. One example is the Lee Daniels film The Butler, which portrays former president Ronald Reagan (played by the late British actor Alan Rickman) as an uncaring racist who supported the apartheid in South Africa. Then he produced Philomena, which had been criticized as anti-Catholic and anti-Republican, and yet was loved by the media, including ABC’s Good Morning America. Now with Six, Weinstein has shown his true anti-American colors.
There comes a point in time when Americans need to take a stand, and we are now in that point in time. Weinstein has a constitutional right to produce this disgraceful TV show. The military that he despises so much (as seen in the pilot) has fought and died to give him that right, and we as Americans have a right to criticize him and anyone who supports it. Isn’t that special? Weinstein using his money and freedom here in the US to bite the hand that feeds him.
This is not about ideology, this is about a man who is using one of his productions to smear the American military community; people who are currently serving our country, and those who served in the past. Mr. Weinstein has done a terrible thing, and he ought to be ashamed of himself. Again, while he continues to create movies specifically for his Hollywood elite peers, hundreds of thousands of American citizens are putting their lives on the line, so he can put out his Oscar-bait without ever experiencing the fears of terrorism regular Americans face every day. During World War II, FDR might have been disgusted at Mr. Weinstein, and Gen. George Patton would have also been furious at him. But today, there seems to be no outrage by the press against Weinstein’s anti-American actions.
The Walt Disney Co. owns a stake in A+E Networks, which itself operates the History Channel. If you are planning on going to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida, I am asking park ticket holders to wear a T-shirt that says “Support the Troops” on the front. There is no need to be boycotting the two theme park destinations, just wear a T-shirt while at the parks saying “Support the Troops”. That way, Disney might have its television arm and Weinstein get the message. And the next time a movie theatre in your neighborhood shows a Harvey Weinstein production, stand in front of the theatre with a “Support the Troops” sign.
Obviously, there is still some bitterness over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election this past November. But the fact that Weinstein – who himself was a Clinton supporter – is showing that he has open disdain for regular Americans who supported Trump, and especially those who support our armed forces, is disgusting. Disney CEO Bob Iger also supported Clinton, but at least he is still willing to work with the president.
Liberals are not doing this, progressive zealots are. Weinstein certainly falls within that group. No matter what your political affiliation may be, there is no excuse for the entertainment industry to smear the military like this. We all owe a lot of gratitude to our men and women in uniform, and we would not have the freedoms we have today if it weren’t for them. Any American that harms our soldiers like this needs to be reminded of how much they sacrificed for us, and that is exactly why people need to take a stand against Harvey Weinstein.
He is the perfect example of how the left continues doing everything they can to hurt our men and women in uniform and aid our enemies. Period.
