Video: Nice movie career you’ve got there, wingnut; it’d be a shame if something happened to it
hotair.com ^ | August 9, 2008 | Allahpundit

Posted on 08/09/2008 12:37:56 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

One ominous comment from an entertainment writer does not a blacklist make, but then it’s more than just one comment that has people like Voight and Breitbart concerned. Consider this a bookend to Ed’s post this morning about Tom Matzzie’s strongarm tactics; given the media attention to that story and to this one, I’d say we’re already well into backfire territory on each. As for Voight’s allusion near the end to hearing more from Hollywood conservatives in the next few months, I assume he means David Zucker’s upcoming movie. The negative reviews are doubtless already being written, but read Stephen Hayes’s piece on it in the Standard if you haven’t yet. I hope it does well because this may be the last paycheck the cast sees for awhile. Click the image to watch.

Update (Ed): I interviewed Myrna Sokoloff, co-writer of Voight’s upcoming movie with David Zucker, An American Carol, yesterday. She and I discussed the future prospects of the cast, which includes Dennis Hopper, Kelsey Grammer, and Kevin Farley, as well as her own hopes for a career. The movie comes out October 3rd.

Jon deserves our support as do any that speak out. The left has most of the media and they can say whatever they wish supporting 9-11 conspiracies, hating our military, being ashamed of our country wanting to morph the lives of hard working families to emulate their depraved lifestyles. They are not what makes this country great. They are the problem!
Jon is a hero in my book.

Time has shown us that Joe McCarthy was right! If you’re not a loyal Communist in Commiewood, “You’ll never work in this town again!”

The ‘tolerant,’ Hollyweirdos keep up their

How ‘bout that Wells jerk .... as if he
were a producer or film maker ... hateful
little worm, he is.

It’s strange that those in Hollywood who seek to ban others that don’t agree with them are oddly doing the same thing they preach and scream that was done to them.

There is no better identifier of a fool than than.

Four time Academy award nominee, two time Emmy award nominee, NYCC Film Crtitics winner, Cannes FF winner, Golden Globe winner, and Academy Award winner, Jon Voight cares what this nonentity says because...?

Tell him to behave, or you'll bite him, like you did Cosmo Kramer, Jon.

Thanks for posting this. Voight was very brave to write so clearly. He knew this would be coming.

**“You’ll never work in this town again!”**

At this moment, the entire ending credits are probably posted at Every SAG and AFTRA office, as well as every casting office, in Hollywierd AS WELL as New York!
I was OUTED as a Conservative several years ago, and haven’t worked in NY since. I think they even have my name and pic in my Union offices so that I am properly IGNORED.

The Hollywierd Left actually believe this is PAYBACK for the Commie BLACKLISTING in the 50’s!

That really stinks that you are being treated that way. I guess “McCarthyism” is okay as long as it’s the left that is doing it.

Those Hollyweirdos have the maturity of a two year old.

I’ve been generous all these years. Liberals (in General) seem to have maturity of about 12. Moonbats maturity level seems to be about 6. After watching the vitriol over this movie... 2 JUST MAY BE Closer to Accurate.

I love that picture and I have it framed, but that horse is in awfully good shape to have survived a winter at Belley Forge.

Grammer, who is friends with Ann Coulter, says he quoted her once to some of the young people who work for him. "'Ann Coulter,'" he says, recalling their horror and assuming their voice. "'She's the antichrist.' And I said: 'What the f-- do you know about the antichrist? You don't even believe in Christ.'"

Love that!

Here's one to get on your show sometime, oh great one.

As if Wells actually has any skills. He should try getting a useful job.

Such as cleaning up dog droppings out of gutters.

The Hayes piece was a great read, and heartening.

ALL of those working on the new movie “An American Carol” deserve our support. I strongly suggest we FREEP THIS MOVIE!!

It can be a new tradition for supporting conservative movies.

Thanks for the tip I’ll check it out. It is good to see conservatives coming together. McCain is now getting more support from his base than Obama is.

This is probably why he and his slut daughter, Angelina Jolie, don't get along.

As for doing penance for past youthful bad deeds, I understand Mr. Voight’s feelings completely. I do that penance thing every day, too.
