Who are the prominent or "famous" Republicans?

Posted on 07/29/2004 9:50:18 PM PDT by kk_Thomas05

Who are some famous or well-known Republicans? Is anyone else getting really discouraged by all of the interviews with Hollywood stars that endorse Kerry or bash Bush? I was wondering if y'all knew any people who support the President. I know of a few people like Charlton Heston, Bruce Willis, I think I heard that Lara Flynn Boyle was a supporter... anyone else? It isn't fair that all of the main-stream people have to be completely one-sided! Give me some encouragement!

Will the RNC get as much press and hooplah as the DNC is getting?

The Democrats have lots of big name stars, all part of an elite that pretends to a superior knowledge, all that star power demonstrates just how in touch they really are with the normal Americans.

Dennis Hopper??? Really? I'm happily suprised. I wonder how Sean Penn feels about that, since his daughters middle name is Hopper in honor of one of his mentors! Ha.
As for the others, Drew Carey is a total Libertarian. He's the best.

Also Gary Sinise I've heard is conservative, as is Gary Oldman.

John Carpenter, the director of such classics as "Halloween" and "Escape From New York" is also a Libertarian/Republican as I hear it.

Yep. I might not agree with EVERYTHING he's doing, but, man, I LOVE the way he shakes up the dems. They know they can't win against him. He'll simply go public and tell all. The CA public stands right behind him. It's a riot.

What makes you think that Denzel Washington is conservative? He makes some real liberal movies, but I'd love to hear the guys conservative.

Nah, if someone else wants to be a moron, it's not my problem. That and there's always the hope that their next line of dialogue will be "Would you like fries with that?"

Apparently Denzel stood up for the team recently. Forgive me if this is redundant from somewhere. I got this via email today......so, in it's entirety (unsure if true--can anyone substantiate?):





Did you see the Denzel Washington interview with Katie Couric on NBC last Friday morning (13 August 2004)?

Not many people are talking about it. They are wishing it would go away and are trying to sweep it under the rug.

But it's not going to happen! It basically went like this.



Meryl Streep and Denzel were on the today show "live" with Katie Couric to talk about the movie "Manchurian Candidate."

At one point Katie asked Denzel, "have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11?" To which Denzel replied, "No, and I have no intentions on seeing it." Katie and Meryl were "so noticeably" taken aback! It was so cool!

Then, a discourse (or more preferably, a fight!) began between all three of them with Denzel being barraged with all kinds of anti-Bush, anti-republican comments, but "the man stood his ground" and soon enraged the women so much that they couldn't get a word in edgewise. Meryl Streep turned blood red and she sat with her legs crossed and her one leg shaking up and down, fuming! Then Katie uttered the words that put the final nail in her coffin, she said to Denzel "you see, that's the problem I have with "you people."

She of course did not get to finish her sentence because Denzel pounced on her verbally by responding "YOU PEOPLE! YOU PEOPLE! Just what do you mean you people! Do you mean "You People" as in me as a Christian, or do you mean "You People" as in me as a REPUBLICAN? She then tap danced her way through the next minute of the show. But Denzel went out fighting and
declaring that Fahrenheit 9/11 is nothing but propaganda and lies distorted to support a cynical democratic film director's views.

Whoo hoo!! I love the man!

There's a celebrity that deserves to wear the uniform in movies and I don't mind at all. Everybody else is a hypocrite!

Yep, John Q, was nothing but a two-hour DNC campaign ad.

Since your initial post asked for encouragement I'll jump in with my quick 2 cents. I think most-I repeat- MOST -not all- celebrities are just knee-jerk liberals with no real commitment to anything except their own fame. They spout liberal garbage since they'll usually get no guff for it in their professional circles plus spouting liberal bull is always a short-cut to seeming "deep" and "intellectual." We need to keep being loud and sending signals that dumping on our country and everything it stands for WILL hurt them at the box office.
And when celebrities pretend that's a "free speech" issue, that's nonsense. For all their "artistic" pretentions they are simply in a SALES position. They want us to buy tickets to their movies or concerts or buy their DVDs or music, etc but we don't have to if they openly affiliate themselves with the Democraps. Especially if they obnoxiously insist on sharing political views that noone wants to hear anyway! It's kind of like if a car sales rep walks up to potential customers wearing a shirt that says either "Abortion is murder" or "I vote pro-choice." Either way they're going to alienate plenty of potential customers but by refusing to buy a car from the guy they aren't tampering with his right to free speech. They're just exercising their own freedom to not line the pocket of someone who stupidly flaunts their political views unnecessarily.

Regarding Denzel's interview on Today Show - the transcript you provided is an email fraud. While I still think he is conservative the transcript you posted is actually listed out on urban legends. Check out the following link to see the actual transcript.

For a whole list of potential conservatives or those who at least supported the war in Iraq, go to:
