Ted Nugent rants over Harvey Weinstein's anti-gun film


Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent has branded movie mogul Harvey Weinstein a "subhuman punk" and compared him to a Nazi over his plans to make a hard-hitting new film with an anti-gun theme.

Weinstein has confirmed Meryl Streep is onboard for his new project, reportedly named "The Senator's Wife," which he hopes will tackle the controversial issue of gun control in America.

During an interview with shock jock Howard Stern, the celebrated producer also revealed he wants the film to change the opinion of the pro-gun lobby, including America's National Rifle Association (NRA), saying, "They're going to wish they weren't alive after I'm done with them. It's going to be, like, crash and burn... I don't think we need guns in this country, and I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area."

Weinstein's comments have infuriated Nugent, a member of the NRA and a vocal gun advocate, who condemned the moviemaker in an appearance on the NRA's Cam & Company news show on Thursday, saying, "I know that God is inspiring the subhuman punk Weinstein to create what is going to be the most powerful promotion tool for the NRA ever because people are smarter than he acknowledges."

Nugent goes on to compare Weinstein to Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels and left-wing activist Saul Alinsky. He adds, "(People) will see that Joseph Goebbels and Saul Alinsky is alive in the form a fat punk named Harvey Weinstein, and as he tries to destroy the NRA it will backfire on him... Harvey Weinstein is on the side of criminals. The NRA is on the side of innocent victims protecting themselves from criminals."

He also branded a Weinstein a "brain-dead idiot" and a "descendent of the ultimate putz," while he also called Stern a "spineless weasel" for not challenging the movie mogul on his show.

"I don't think we need guns in this country, and I hate it, and I think the NRA is a disaster area." What we have here is a failure to communicate. Since keeping and bearing arms is a right protected under the constitution, one doesn't have to show a need for guns. When will you left wing gun grabbers learn to read? Perhaps we really don't need freedom of speech what good does it do for the average American? Perhaps we should place very restrictive controls on those who make movies, after all they are consistently filling people's heads with unrealistic

Teds right unless you want to turn into this country to Chicago which is the murder capitol in the united States. It funny most no gun zones have all the murders. Only a good person with a gun can stop a bad person with a gun.
