A once-timid group of social outcasts is emerging from the shadows in Hollywood. If the past year is any indication, Tinseltown may have to get accustomed to the loud presence of a growing minority.

After years of silence, conservatives are coming out of the closet.

Same tired tiny list.

Please. There's a conservative renaissance in Hollywood, and I just burped up an aria.

‘Some have suggested the purported anti-conservative tilt in Hollywood is overstated — if it exists at all. Perez Hilton, the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” and author of his eponymous gossip site, said, “I think Hollywood is very tolerant. They may mock you for your political beliefs, but at least they’ll do it to your face!”It won’t ever interfere with people getting a job. Kelsey Grammer still works!”’

Just don’t support traditional marriage.

On the contrary I’ve decided to stop discussing politics in the workplace at all. It’s a waste of time anyway. We now live in a socialist banana republic - what’s there to talk about?

The liberals are going to run everything even further into the ground than it already is. But the majority of voters seem not to care.

What I hate are idiots that get rich off of their hypocracy...Martin Sheen for example...hates war, unless he’s doing another war movie.

Ha! That’ll be the day.

Actors know there is nothing as rabid and militant as a hollywood know-it-all trying to impress his “friends.”

And Kelsey Grammar works because he makes them lots of $$$s. The whores in hollywood worship money more than anything.

If the ‘guy’ you are referring to is the author, SE Cupp, then you’re actually talking about a smoking hot young woman who is very conservative even though she writes at the NYT and lives in Manhattan.

She is an avid hunter with a very sharp wit and published her first book this year. She is regularly on Red Eye (at 3am EST on FNC) because of popular demand for he views and her looks.

In the current political environment, if I were a Hollywood Conservative I’d bury myself deeper, not come out.

Give them no quarter. At all. Do not buy/frequent/watch the media of any leftist.

Read the classics and the founding documents of the US....while you still can.

There are two terms that are considered by most if not all in the entertainment "industry" (clearly an oxymoron), an abomination: anti-abortion and anti-homosexual values.

If you are for both, you find yourself welcomed by the "Hollyweird" crowd; if you have a problem with both, you will never be accepted by any of them.

Even the so-called conservatives or RINOs in the "industry" decry social conservatives for their "out-dated morality" and "hate values."

We do not support them and they despise us, Republican or not.

They all prefer Castro, Chavez and all dictators to the pro-family crowd.

Contrary to popular belief...there are many Hollywood conservatives. I was one the 15 years I lived and worked in that town as a PA, Production Manager and then, a Producer. The conservatives kept it on the down low...but we all knew each other. Interestingly, you always knew who the conservatives were on set because they were the ones working their butts off, staying later than they needed to get things done and never bitched about the food or accomodations. Generally, they were happy and always had a ‘can-do’ attitude.... ;)

re: “can do attitude”

I don’t know Hollywood (beyond what I see of its entertainment output) but in other work environments I have certainly noticed that the resident liberals are most likely to be whiny, annoying brats!! It takes a more “conservative” attitude of hard work, accountability, and dedication to actually keep the economy and the country moving.

Liberals just stand around whining and then taxing whatever they can get away with.....

To do that you’d have to ignore virtually all cinema. Those are classics as well.

You don’t have to pay their salaries by distinguishing the actor/singer from the part/music.

As I said earlier, if you cherrypick in the Arts you have to ignore just about everything. I’m supposed to not watch Spielberg’s or Spike Lee’s films because of their politics? Those things are a big part of American culture.
