With Obama Struggling in Hollywood, GOP Support on the Rise
The Wrap ^ | 02-27-12 | Michael Janofsky

As President Obama finds himself working harder for Hollywood re-election donations – “You can only be the first African-American president once,’’ says a Democratic consultant – the number of Hollywood Republicans appears to be swelling.

"There are lot more than people think," Frank DeMartini, a veteran film producer who blogs at HollywoodRepublican.net, told TheWrap. "It used to be about 80-20, Democrat. Now, I’d say it’s closer to 60-40. A majority of Republicans in Hollywood are hiding under rocks."

"There are certainly more conviction conservatives in Hollywood than conviction liberals," agrees screenwriter Lionel Chetwynd, one of the entertainment industry's most visible Republicans for years. Though he thinks the 60-40 ratio may be a bit high, he contends that "a lot of people just say they’re liberals because it’s good for their career.”

Who can say for sure? No one, really. Hollywood Republicans say many of their peers fear employment discrimination in a liberally liberal industry.

Sure, lots of A-list Republicans have stepped into the sunlight – Kelsey Grammar, Gary Sinise, Drew Carey, Patricia Heaton, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Bruckheimer and Adam Sandler.

Adam Sandler is a proud Jew...


He’s surrounded by the sight and sound of Israel hating Jewish elitists in Hollywierd. I imagine that up close and personal look at the reality of liberal elitism would dampen one’s ability to march mindlessly with limo-leftists.

The utter disrespect liberals have for American freedom, Christians and Jews combined with their love of death and oppression, is downright scarey.

Larry elder does whole radio shows on this, taking calls from all kinds of conservatives who work in the industry, talking about how they have to stay closeted to get jobs. It’s mind-blowing. These people still Crow about communist blacklisting, yet they themselves practice the same thing. Those blacklisted commies are revered. The blacklisted conservatives Hollywood approves of.

Max, please tell me Robert Downey jr is on the right! That would be icing on his funny, bright cake.

Guess what? Downey is a conservative.

He said his viewpoint changed when he was in prison. He visited Bush in the Oval Office.

They speak out in defense of America, Israel, and Judaism, among other subjects. The late Ron Silver also was in this group.

Ron Silver voted for Bush in 2004, but voted for Obama in 2008. He never claimed to have switched permanently to the Republican party.

Plus Joe Perry of Aerosmith came out as a Republican in 2008 and he explained that he grew up in working class neighborhood and didn’t equate his upbringing to liberals. Great story in the Boston herald..probably why he and Tyler usually don’t get along.

‘_____Santa Monica Blvd. are full of looney libtards_________’

Could see that coming back in the ‘8o’s.
Except my mind wasn’t yet on the great Left/Right divide.

Haven’t been anywhere near there for ages - - -
