Medved points out. “This is what many people in the movie industry don’t get: when you express hostility to conservatives, many Americans feel that you’re expressing hostility to them.”

Linda Rondstadt made it clear that she DIDN'T like having conservatives in her audience.

Screw these politicos. I don't pay to be insulted or hated. Take my money but believe that I am evil/foolish?

So much for respecting an opposing viewpoint.

Ronstadt was more specific. She didn't like knowing that Republicans or fundamental Christians were in the audience.

The more MSM/actors/ artist/ does this, the more they alienate their audience, and the more they become irreverent.
I think that most Americans today don't care about what happened during Vietnam.
I am not talking about the vets who served and died in Vietnam ( Americans should always honor and remember our vets ) but, the liberal's version of Vietnam as seem through the eyes of the MSM, war protesters, liberalism , democrats, hippie dippys.
As in this article, the reason that the movie Forst Gump was a hit and a success was, Main Stream American wants to forget about the liberal 60s - 70s, the war protests, hippie dippies.
Forst Gump ( as this article mentioned ) was a repudiation of that culture, and the anti Americaism, and rebellion of the 60s-70s.
The public " Main Stream America " does not care about Liberal/MSM/Democrats values anymore.
The " MAIN STREAM of AMERICA " is getting very weary and tired of the likes of Linda Rondstadt/Perky Katie of N.B.C. /Dan Rather/ Michael Moores telling them how wrong they ( the public, Conservatives/Republicans/Patriotically Americans ) are , instead of doing some self reflection in how WRONG they ( Liberals/MSM/Democrats/Liberal Hollywood ) is.
