Harvey Weinstein Urges Jews to Take on Anti-Semites: “Kick These Guys in the Ass”
“We’re gonna have to get as organized as the mafia,” the mogul told the audience at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s national tribute dinner, where he was introduced by friend and competitor Jeffrey Katzenberg as “a really nice Jewish boy.”
And then, once you finally get down to the fifth paragraph, you find out that it has nothing to with skinheads in Idaho:
“I’m upset when I read The Atlantic Monthly’s headline that says, ‘Should the Jews leave Europe?’ — a resounding ‘no’ on my end — and [New York Times columnist] David Brooks today talking about how to combat anti-Semitism,” Weinstein said. “It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust]. And the lessons of the past are we better stand up and kick these guys in the ass.”
The co-head of The Weinstein Company continued, “I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful — but we [also] have to go and protect ourselves. We have to build, once again, back into the breach. There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now The Weinstein Company. It says, ‘Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’ That’s how we built our company! And, unfortunately, we [Jews] are gonna have to get as organized as the mafia. We just can’t take it anymore. We just can’t take these things. There’s gotta be a way to fight back.”
“While we must be understanding of our Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers,” he added, “we also have to understand that these crazy bastards [Arab and Islamic extremists] are also killing their own — they’re killing neighbors, they’re killing people from all sorts of different races. And, unlike World War II, when we didn’t act right away and we paid the price, we better start acting now. Trust me, I’m the last guy who wants to do anything about it, but I realize if we don’t, we will perish. We can’t allow the bad guys to win. So, as they say in The Godfather, ‘back to the mattresses,’ and back to the idea that we will not ever forget what happened to us.”
They kept the truth relatively deep into the paragraph count.
Yes, organization and clarity of purpose is important. But, in the short term, maybe Harv could make a few phone calls to his media brethren in Europe and ask them to knock off the implication that Hitler is coming back every time some white person suggests little bit of race-based immigration control. Endorsements of Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen would also be nice.
Obviously, that wouldn’t solve all our problems and all their problems, because the Jewish-egalitarian media is only one of several drink-stirring straws. You always have to consider the cheap labor aspect, and the elect-a-new-people aspect, and the inevitable degeneracy of democratic republics aspect. Even if every media Jew everywhere in the world converted to our cause overnight, there’s still a pretty steep mountain to climb.
But, when you can be of help, you should be.
