BOYCOTT ALL OF HOLLYWOOD and Celebrities!
2.12.03 | scott

Posted on 02/12/2003 10:59:43 AM PST by Boohollywood

AMERICA NEEDS TO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! Hollywood manipulates the media with money power and influence. Point: Hollywood didnt speak out when our country was attaked. Hollywood didnt speak out when the Colombia crashed. Hollywood speaks out for foreign causes more than American causes. They refer to our troops as murderers. They dont support American Industry. THEY DONT SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS! They dont help you or me! .........Then they take your money! YOU SUPPRT THESE PEOPLE AND THEN THEY CALL YOU STUPID! THEY LOVE AMERICAN MONEY! NOT YOU! I say we Boycott ALL OF HOLLYWOOD! They make movies about violence and guns and then they speak out against the subject matters that support them! If they dont like guns or war, why do they glorify it? BOYCOTT ALL OF HOLLYWOOD! THEY THINK YOU ARE STUPID! amateur politicians!

Not ALL of Hollywood is bad.

Bruce Willis, Mel Gibson, and Arnie Schwartzenegger, among others, are on our side - we should show them some support.

Settle down. There's plenty of examples on FR of Hollywood celebs on our side. Put away your broad brush and focus your attention on the Baldwins, Langes, and Sheens.

I didnt know about the boycott....but I will take part. I dont go to movies, nor do I watch network TV shows, anyway. I only buy country CDs (good thing, because most of Nashville is pro-US anyway....not that liberal anti-US stuff)

Yeay, yeay! I'm with ya! It'll be as successful as the boycott of Disney! That megaplex (as they now call them), opening in my neck of the woods in a week or so, will just go belly up in no time!

(Has this thread been ZOTted yet?)

Actually, Disney has been in trouble for years. I live in Florida, and while my contacts are mostly religious Christians, most everyone I know will NOT go to Disney. I do feel Disney would be surprised, if despite all their advertising showing cute little kids and Mickey, to realize just how many people do NOT view them as family friendly.

One mistaken trip to Disney in June cures a lot of people of that feeling. Orlando actually flies the rainbow flags during June, and don't think it doesn't make the newspapers, and that thinking people (the ones who care about what may be atop a flagpole) view it all with disgust.

The smart thing to do is to boycott those Hollywood types and teach them a lesson! We need to show the world that we won't tolerate any views that differ from ours... That we don't care that our forefathers killed and died so we could express our views without fear of retribution. We need to let the world know that you are either for us or against us and woe to those who are against us.

How low have we come to actually contemplate boycotting Hollywood?...That is like telling Americans to boycott America.

Welcome to FreeRepublic. Boycotting a person or person's products (in this case, movies and televsion productions) because you find their opinions ridiculous is hardly un-American...

Don't think I'll be patronizing Mr. Silver, who in 1999 said that Republican congressmen were "hostages to the right-wing fringe of your party."

True...but it is sad that people actually don't want people to express themselves. Will the boycott end when Hollywood has the same opinion as the boycotters? Also, keep in mind that "Hollywood" is a true American icon, if not THE American icon. More power to the boycotters though...If anything comes of it I will be suprised. Hollywood will probably make a movie about it!

"This is stupid...what about those who are conservative? There are quite a few. " Unfortunately, that is true, however, it is getting out of hand. But maybe, if the coffers start going dry, they can tell the big mouths to shut up. I'm sure that a boycott until April is not going to "break" any of them, but maybe it will get their attention. As far as the movies, I can see re-runs of movies I missed in the 1950's...so it ain't like you'll never get to see the movies. It's just that some egos need deflating out there, their self-imposed "Royalty" needs tempering.

I think that you'll find that a vast majority of people on FR welcome such idiots "expressing themselves" and would vigorously defend their right to do so. That being said, Americans who vehemently disagree with their opinions have every right to not spend any money on their products; in other words, "expressing themselves." I also disagree that Hollywood is a true American icon or THE American icon. Hollywood in general may consider it to be so, but that would be something akin to delusion of grandeur, IMO.

Easy. Which one is out in front, and which one is hacking and coughing, trying to catch up? : )

The armadillo's diet consists chiefly of insects, grubs, and spiders, though it also eats such foods as earthworms, small amphibians, reptiles, and zippers.

Disagree totally. But that's the trouble with art - everybody has their own personal opinion.

Personally, I thought "Die Hard I" was GREAT! and I always liked the smart-ass BW in "Moonlighting".

And Terminator I has that beginning sequence - starting in the arcade - that absolutely GLUES you to the screen for the next 20 minutes: continuous action, well-staged and well-paced, just awesome!!! Loved that movie, and "Total Recall" and "True Lies" as well.

If hollywood could blow up a hundred cars and buildings , fire off 1 million rounds of ammo with people flying out windows from the impact etc etc and show boobs all over the screen and drop the F bomb every other word they couldn't write a scrip

One of those movies is enough for a lifetime

We can only PRAY that Al Kayda & Co. strike THERE FIRST!

AQ already struck NY. But NY is too far away from the Hollywood Liberals. IIRC, soon after 9/11, many of them canceled their appearances in NY and wouldn't even fly!

If Osama really wants a war against Islam, he should attack Hollywood! They got some nasty folks there who will willingly oblige his request!

I'd like to see Sheryl Crow eat crow!
