http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2013/11/16/Harvey-Weinstein-USA-Embarrassing-Because-of-Second-Amendment



 by Tony Lee 17 Nov 2013, 7:55 AM PDT

Hollywood producer and Obama donor Harvey Weinstein said the United States is "embarrassing" because of its adherence to the Second Amendment and lack of universal healthcare.

Appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday, Weinstein said "this is the only the country in the world where we don't have health care. Countries embarrass us around the world."

"And this is the only country in the world where we don't have a gun law. I watched you, you know, talking about that," he said. "You know, quite frankly it's embarrassing. Obama's not embarrassing. The country is embarrassing."

Morgan asked Weinstein during the show's Friday installment "if he could enjoy the work of someone like Chris Christie," the Republican governor of New Jersey.

"I love him," Weinstein said. "I think the guy's fantastic."

Weinstein then said, "as good as Governor Christie is," he could become an "excellent Secretary of State under President [Hillary] Clinton."

Christie is likely to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Should Christie win, his opponent in the general election could be Clinton, for whom Weinstein said he would do "whatever he could."

Also in the interview, Morgan read aloud to Weinstein Robert Redford's comments in which he said some Republicans who opposed Obama during the government shutdown were racist, and he commented that Redford used "pretty strong words" in "accusing Obama's opponents of being racist."

Weinstein replied, "I think some of them are, you know, unfortunately."

"Yeah, I do," Weinstein said of his belief that some Republicans in Congress who oppose Obama are racist. "Because this kind of vitriol is unexplained otherwise. It just looks like utter disdain for the president."

Desperation sets in as Obama's sycophants like Redford, Winfrey, and now Weinstein fall back on the only thing left to them: allegations of racism.

Ah, yes.............we have no 'health care'............no doctors, no nurses, no hospitals, no clinics, not a thing.

And we have no gun laws either.  It's a gunfight at the OK Corral every day in every city and town in the country.

If I were Weinstein, I would be 'embarrassed' to be alive..........   **nononono*

He's right, we don't have "a gun law." We have hundreds.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

If he would drive down the road a bit into Century City he would find a major hospital (I had my knee surgery there) and doctor offices just about every direction you look.... as a matter of fact a quick jog up Santa Monica Blvd to Wilshire Blvd and you see high rises with doctor after doctor......  he lives in a virtual medical mecca... and you know darned well he KNOWS it.

You'd think he'd be embarrassed to make such a stupid comment (America has no health care?), but he's a leftist, and they know no shame.

Just curious, I wonder if any of Weinstein's films portray stories where guns figure prominently? Or that glorify gun violence? No, Hollywood films never would do that, nope, never.

Another example of a member of the group that cannot be criticized...

Speaking of which, you think these people are going to lose their doctors?  They pay cash and never a worry.  This goes back to the point I made several weeks back on the "Michael Jackson's Doctor Thread".  The Weinsteins, Spielbergs or Katzenbergs won't be facing the repercussions of going to a cash accepting doc, it will be the doctor.
The doctor has already been made an example of.
