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.....
From what I gather, yes there are people behind the scenes. But if you want to be a mover and shaker, with cover stories on the press magazines, headline chair on the tonight show, favorable reviews, and awards, you have to play ball with the PC crowd.
Andrew Breitbart has sat in for Sean Hannity a few times and does a low-key job of discussing the conservative underground in Hollywood. He talked one night about there being hundreds of well-known stars that are not only Republican, but conservative Republican. He also spent some time talking about the Jewish influence in Hollywood and that if the current crop of Democrats fail to provide nothing short than 100% support for Israel, the Hollywood power-brokers will likely separate themselves.
