It's time to get serious. More anti-conservative trash has come from their mouths. More influence from their wallets. You know who. You've known them for years.
Was it unfair that Republicans were spared from the wrath of Hurricane Isaac? Samuel L. Jackson thinks so. See here.
Would you contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to the dirty and divisive Obama campaign? Leonardo DiCaprio would...and he did. See here.
Would you provide opening entertainment at an Obama fundraiser? Jamie Foxx would...and he did. See here.
Take time out of your day to stump for Obama in a swing state? Kerry Washington does. See here.
The foursome above have something in common. Not just their liberal, uber-fascism and conservative hatred. They all love poor people and are willing to share and give away all of their wealth. Right? You would think. But that's still not only what they have in common.
Can you guess?

How many innocent whites will die because racist blacks enraged by this Hollywood hate propaganda will attack them on the street?
Not that they are not doing it already, but this will result in a predictable spike in the numbers. Just wait. Just like happened with “Justice for Trayvon” attacks and what happened after the Roots series.
Can you please post the rest? It LOOKS interesting...so far.
I’m all in favor of a Hollywood boycott, but since the last movie I watched was two years ago, it’s sort of pointless in my case. (My daughter dragged me to see “Avatar”.
It is getting easier to boycott Hollywood all the time, as fewer and fewer productions are now rolling out of that once-fabulous locality.
Many of our TV shows, and more of our movie releases, are actually being made in Toronto, Ontario, or Vancouver, BC, in Canada. And WITHOUT many of the former big-name stars, as independent film makers take advantage of a growing void of originality.
Oh, sure, a lot of the venture capital is still coming out of the Left Coast, but it is being replaced on a world basis with new cash flowing in from the Far East and European sources, as the money is fleeing from their home countries in the shadow of the coming collapse of currencies worldwide, and the relative safety of investing in entertainment industries. The circus side of the bread and circuses panacea to keep the masses diverted from the chaos occurring on every side of them.
Hollywood is dinosaur stumbling toward the La Brea tar pit.
Last movie I saw was “2016”....let’s see, the last one before that was.... “Monumental”. I don’t spend my money on products that the company will turn around and donate it to that POS in the white house or the libs in Congress. Other than those two I have not wasted money on Hollywood in years!
A girl took me to see Tarzan, and yes she paid for it.
Good idea. Some of us have already been doing it for years.
You’re shooting too low.
Hollywood is owned by the MSM oligopoly.
Globally, these large media conglomerates include Viacom, CBS Corporation, Time Warner, News Corp, Bertelsmann AG, Sony Corporation of America, NBCUniversal, Vivendi, Televisa, The Walt Disney Company, Hearst Corporation, Organizações Globo and Lagardère Group.
It’s past time for this oligopoly to be broken up.
They have proven to have as much or more control over American politics than did the great “Trusts” at the beginning of the 20th Century.
“The Sherman Act of 1890 attempted to outlaw the restriction of competition by large companies, who co-operated with rivals to fix outputs, prices and market shares, initially through pools and later through trusts.”
But something not considered by the Sherman Act was that by acting in concert, media corporations could almost totally control the flow and dissemination of information.
If Americans cannot freely communicate through electronic and print media, and cannot voice their opinions in a public forum to a willing audience, they are effectively denied their right of free speech.
Book, newspaper, magazines, TV, radio, movies, music and performance and much of the Internet are in the hands of a small group of individuals that seek to control the national dialogue.
It’s past time for this oligopoly to be broken up.
Tarantino’s last handful of movies have been truly awful garbage anyway. I can’t believe anyone would fund one of his movies now. Needless to say, there’s no way I would see one of his movies, politics of no politics.
This is an easy thing for my family. We have probably seen 1 movie a year at the theatre. I refuse to put money in their wallets. We go to the library to rent video’s so that we don’t pay for them. Hate to sound cheap, but it is more than that, its a moral code as well.
All you have to do is look at the bottom line of Inglorious Basterds and you’ll see right off how he’ll easily find funding.
The only movie that I have gone to see in the past 20 years is the “Passion of the Christ”! I will not give the likes of George Clooney and the rest a penny to put out their propaganda!
I had a boxer named Django.
I had to have him put down in February. Best dog ever.
Just do what I did. When Machete came out, the director, Robert Rodriguez made comments in support of illegal immigration. So I bought a movie ticket to see the Expendables (which was an awesome movie) and “illegally immigrated” to Machete. I should have just watched “The Expendables” again, Machete was so awful.
Last time I ever set foot in a movie theatre to see a movie was back in 1989, when I was stationed at the now former U.S. Naval Base, Subic Bay, Philippines. Me and a buddy went to see ‘Born in East LA’, then playing at the Cubi Point NAS base theatre.
Other than renting the occasional movie on VCR/DVD (mostly war movies/documentaries), I haven’t given Hollyweird one dime and have been doing my own boycott of Hollyweird for the past 20+ years (not one dime for the anti-American filth).
If every Conservative or Right-Leaning American simply refused to go watch the movies or TV shows that Hollyweird puts out, they would go broke in no time. Conservatives or Right Leaners make up nearly half of the U.S. Population.
From this Conservative’s perspective, it doesn’t make sense to give any of your hard earned money to companies/indivduals who despise you and your beliefs.
