An important reminder of America’s troubles, a huge part of the problem.

Intolerance of the views of others, the antithesis of the euphemisms they love to apply to themselves, progressive and liberal (well, they used to love liberal), are so typical of the left. Surprised that Ms Brittany managed to establish a friendship with Asner, virulent leftist that he is.Apparently he proves Mike Savage's adage: liberalism is a mental disorder.

Liberals only believe in diversity and tolerance for as long as you agree with them.

WORTH REPEATING

Brittany told of building a friendship with actor Ed Asner, a sometimes activist for progressive causes, when the two starred in a stage-play together during the infamous Florida recount that put Republican George W. Bush in the White House over Democrat Al Gore. And she told how she lost Asner's friendship due to politics.

"Every night he just loved me and came in and gave me a big hug," she said. "Then one night he was going crazy about Gore and Bush and stealing the election. I'm backstage and I said, 'Ed, chill, not everybody thinks the way you do'."

"Well, where do I begin?" I swear. It was like a light switch," she said. "He turned to me and said, 'you're not a Republican?' I said, 'yep.' And he said, 'I can't even look at you. I can't even talk to you'."

"From that moment on, he never spoke to me again, except on stage," she said. "This is what we're dealing with. The intolerance of the left."

The comments at the link are worth reading. All hate and attacks on the actors talents.

Hollywood types love to talk about being blacklisted and McCarthyism....but it’s all simple projection on their part. Well let me tell ya, I’m intolerant of tolerance.

"What is this, the blacklist?" she said.

It's a coven.

They've all sold their souls to the evil one.

Sounds like it’s time for our conservative brothers and sisters in Hollywood to utilize our free market system (for as long as we still have it, anyway!).

They should form their own production company and produce entertainment that the American people actually want to pay for, instead of the crap that comes out of Hollywood now. They would make more money than they could possibly spend in this lifetime.

“his advice to Republicans looking to break into the industry is to keep their political opinions to themselves, even though Hollywood liberals seldom do.”
________________________________________________

My advice would be to stay away from an industry run and populated by Anti-American neo-Marxist.

Why on earth would a real and decent American want to be in such a cesspool?

I've got news for Asner and his ilk: You're being blacklisted by millions of conservatives who now refuse to watch anything you appear in. I haven't seen a Julia Roberts movie in 10 years, or whenever it was that she made that hateful remark about Republicans. The rule of thumb is that if someone is a mediocre actor or whatever, and they pull stunts like that, I write them off. However, if someone is a superior actor, writer, musician, etc, I will make a few allowances.

Back in the early 90's, I was helping out with a Star Trek convention that was in town, which had Leonard Nimoy as the big star. And since it was Nimoy, the placed was packed.

Leonard started speaking about the new movie, Star Trek IV, you know, the one about the whales. He was talking about the issues of hunting and why we should save them.

Well, then he decides to stray into politics and starts to bash 41. I am standing next to the stage opposite the door with several hundred people between me and it.

He continues to trash Bush and I am getting more livid by the moment. I am trying to decide whether to walk straight out in front of the stage or go toward the back.

Finally, I can take it no more so I swiftly turn and literally march half way back, cut through the mid aisle and march out the door.

Afterwards, friends asked me what I was doing. I told them that this was a Star Trek convention, three days before the General Election and Nimoy was up there bashing the sitting President. I told them that this was no place for what he said and that some of the ppl in the audience were mindless sheeple that will be swayed by what he was saying and vote according to Spock.

I remember being so damned angry, but I got some satisfaction. One friend told me that Nimoy was temporary shocked (when I say marched, I mean I MARCHED out the door) he lost his train of thought.

THAT little experience really drilled home what Howard was saying.

Great article! Glad you found it!

For the past year, I've produced a weekly online radio show about the behind the scenes of the industry. Clint has been a guest of ours (and was terrific) - and now, you can be sure I'll reach out to Morgan.

It's anecdotal, but with the conversations we've had before and during the show with some of the celeb level guests, there are more conservatives than I imagined. Anyway, I will email this link to Clint and maybe we'll find out that he's on FR...!

God has places where he’s comfortable and satan has places where he’s comfortable. For God it’s in places of danger, like foxholes, where he can offer support and stength. For satan it’s Hollywood!

So Ron Howard would actually consider not giving his younger brother Clint Howard any more cameo roles in his movies?

The intolerance of the left extends everywhere. It isn’t limited to just Hollywood. I’ve experienced their wrath plenty of times when they realize that I, a minority woman, am a fundamentalist Christian. Don’t you know if you’re a minority and female, you HAVE to drink the koolaid?

It is one of the reasons I respect John Wayne and Bob Hope. Neither of them served, but they both gave of themselves in many ways to the troops who did serve and were unabashedly conservative.

“I have a wonderful older brother. It’s a shame he sits on the wrong side of the dinner table,” he said. “It never gets uncomfortable with Ron and I. We just differ politically and that’s okay. He’s just wrong and I’m right. I believe that in my heart of hearts.”

Describes my brother and myself to a T.
