Skip to comments.Another Hollywood star aligns with GOP (Rob Schneider)
Posted on 10/04/2013 5:43:55 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
He credits Sandler for nudging him to the political right, and he is not shy about voicing his disdain for Californias current path.
Schneider told WND he is frustrated that red tape in the policies of Gov. Jerry Brown forced him to move his vitamin business out of California. It became too expensive and time consuming for him to comply with state regulations.
Although the best production staff, hair and makeup people are in California, he has not done a film in the Golden State in seven years.
Brown and the supermajority of Democrats in the legislature, Schneider said, have created a hostile work environment for its most prized industry filmmaking.
Schneider said that no state has more to offer in terms of talent, climate and resources than California. He wants to do more work in the state but blames the Democrat supermajority and its hostility to business for the the industrys struggles.
He asks others in the industry: Do you really want to fly to Louisiana to do your next movie or would you love to do it here in California?
Schneider isnt alone among Hollywood stars who have leaned right politically.

Ping for later
This is no different.
Rob Schneider just took a self-imposed pay cut.
Sandler grew up in Manchester, NH. He recently built his family a house not to far from mine, to the west side of Nashua & Manchester. He did not want his children growing up in Southern California.
When Hollywood sees the light, it sees the light.
Get's mugged...or just grows up.
Older liberals are intensely delusion in order to resist the call of reality and sanity.
Roooob. The robmeister. Rob a lob a ding dong. Makin coffee. Sellin the vity’s. Roooooob.
If only he was funny.
Yet in almost all of Sandlers movies he promotes homosexuality. It’s one thing to shield your own family yet another to support the Hollyweird agenda in his movies. Doesn’t he produce his own movies? Happy Madison or some such?
The term Hollywood Star is a stretch.
Lots of them are leaving California liberal and conservative alike.
Getting lambasted by ultra liberal Roger Ebert would drive you to the GOP
Doesn’t sound like he’s aligned with the GOP.
He is just fed up with the democrats.
Only in movies because he is friends with Adam Sandler.
Best known for the phrase “Yu Con Do EET!”
I think he does produce most of his own movies now. Like many others now, they are filmed outside of California typically. It is too expensive to make movies there. Many are now filmed in Vancouver, BC.
Canada, Georgia, Michigan, the Carolinas.
Maybe he can make another film glorifying male prostitution to the kids? You know, those conservative values. *barf*
I have no idea why some people care so much about celebutards
Now that he’s tilted right, he’ll never work in the entertainment biz again. Or at least I hope he won’t.
These guys (and those like them) need to start producing movies that portray conservatives as the funny/clever characters, and liberals as the funny/stupid characters, avoiding degenerate themes (or showing degeneracy getting its comeuppance), and they will have a big audience.
Even if no one would hire them, they can make their own movies and TV shows.
Oh I don’t know about that. Demand is demand and if he’s in demand (which he doesn’t appear to be) he’ll work.
Nick Searcy is rabidly conservative and has a major role in a hit series (Justified)
I didn’t say it wasn’t.
I was talking about what the content of the movie was.
Vancouver is a nice place.
The entertainment delivered by TV is quickly moving to the internet.
Joan Rivers has moved her new show to the internet and it is building up steam pretty fast.
The new season of Canada's "Trailer Park Boys" has moved to the internet as well.
The broadcast networks and cable channels are in for a rough ride because most of the best talent is not in Hollywood...great talent is spread out all over the world and Hollywood no longer controls access to production.
Top quality video cameras are now extremely cheap, and all the skilled people needed to create quality entertainment are available and eager to work almost anywhere.
Which, by the way, is shot in California.
Some of it is shot in California but they also do a lot of shooting in PA. and WA.
Sandler’s on the right, too?
Yep. He’s the one who convinced Schneider to come over to the dark side. /s
Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler are both Jewish. Actually Schneider is also Filipino via his mother
