THEY DON'T ALL STINK IN HOLLYWOOD: A LIST OF THE GOOD GUYS

Posted on 03/04/2003 12:57:05 AM PST by Cinnamon Girl

It seems like everyone has been making lists lately of all the big mouths in Hollywood who like to spew their hate speech against President Bush and share their ignorance about foreign affairs. There's even a website dedicated to the subject: www.hollywoodhalfwits.com.

But is there a Festivus for the rest of us? Little by little, conservatives, or at least supporters of President Bush, are making themselves known, sometimes against their own better judgment.

Here's a list, with quotes:

1. Shlomo Goldberg. Who is Shlomo Goldberg? Try actor Steve Bond, who played "Jimmy Lee Holt" on General Hospital. He called into the Larry Elder show on Monday to come out as a conservative, who, to top it off, was born in Israel. Steve spoke eloquently about the liberals' foolish faith in the U.N. inspectors. Someone give this guy a good role!

2. James Woods: "I like the Rumsfeld approach to things, you know. If they're not right, shoot ‘em. I’m not about appeasing any of these crappy little Arab states that want to hold us hostage with oil, you know, and decide they’re going to use terrorism or state support it." (from the Conway & Steckler show)

3. James Earl Jones: Said he doesn't oppose U.S. military action in Iraq, provided the country gets involved as soon as necessary and stays to finish the job. (from Fox News)

Kelsey Grammer: ``The thing I most respond to in the political arena is people that actually don't play politics, and I think President Bush comes from a place that is sincere.'' (from AP via NYT)

Heather Locklear: "He's a scumbag," said the vixen of "Spin City" and formerly of "Melrose Place." But Locklear was quick to clarify: She was talking about President Josiah Bartlet, played by Martin Sheen. (from the Weekly Standard)

(the following is according the the Philadelphia Enquirer:)

Babylon Five's Tracy Scoggins

Senator-turned-Law-&-Order-star Fred Thompson: "Thank goodness we have a President with the courage to protect our country."

Libertarians: Drew Carey, Lisa Kennedy, Kurt Russell, Penn and Teller, Tommy Chong, Russell Means

John Malkovich: caused an outcry last summer when he told a group of Cambridge students he'd like to shoot a certain anti-Israel, anti-American member of Parliament.

Conservative Everybody Loves Raymond star Patricia Heaton is honorary chairperson of Feminists for Life.

Emma Caulfield, who plays Anya on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "Identifies herself as a Republican, and has said she would take a break from acting to actively campaign for Elizabeth Dole, in the event that Ms. Dole runs for president again in a future election." (from Internet Movie Database)

Ron Silver: "I kind of like Rumsfeld's 'old Europe versus the new Europe,' and we saw it in the last two weeks, with France and Germany, who were not with us on June 6, 1944, I don't know why we expect them to be with us today."

R. Lee Ermey, a former Marine who played the scary drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket: "Once again, Barbra Streisand has opened her alligator-sized mouth wide before her hummingbird brain has had a chance to catch up. Ms. Streisand does not speak for me or many other folks in this business."

Bruce Willis, White House spokesman for children in foster care: Willis purchased 12,000 boxes of girl Scout cookies from his 8-year-old daughter Tallulah Belle to support military personnel serving in the Middle East. His cookies were given to Marines and Sailors onboard the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp, the aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy, and Army and Air Force personnel in Afghanistan.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: may run as a Republican for governor of California.

Dennis Miller on Hardball: Matthews: “Did you vote for him?” Miller: “Yes I did.” Matthews: “First time you voted Republican? I feel like I’m Brian Lamb here.” Miller: “Well, you know, a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell. I’ll tell you about Bush, but I, you know I-” Matthews: “Are you a lifelong Republican or a lifelong Democrat?” Miller: “I was a lifelong Democrat for a long time.” Matthews: “Did you switch for Bush?” Miller: “Well I switched for other reasons. I began to find the dialogue on the left side of it to be getting a little strident."

Norm McDonald: where is he?

Charlton Heston on Today Show: Lauer demanded: "Have you ever gotten up one morning, read the newspaper or seen the news about a particularly horrific crime or event that involved a shooting and thought even for a second, I may be on the wrong side of this issue?"
Heston: "No I never felt that."

Ovr the years I've noticed a correlation with the worsening of public culture (art, music, literature, movies, etc) and the rise of left-liberalism. A false analogy? Maybe. But that's what I believe.

I don't know his actual political feelings, but I think Samuel L. Jackson deserves special points for the following from his June 1999 Playboy magazine interview:

   PLAYBOY:  Are you politically active?

   JACKSON:  I go to premieres, and folks start asking me,
   "How do you feel about the president?"  I think, What
   the f**k do people care what I think about the president?
   I'm an actor.  All those actors out there stumping for
   this candidate or that candidate, it's bulls**t.  They
   don't do anything past that.  They raise some money
   and they're out of there.  Or they just voice their
   opinion:  "That Dalai Lama is my boy."

   PLAYBOY:  So your soapbox message is for celebrities to
   get off their soapboxes?

   JACKSON:  Just pay your taxes.  Stop standing up and
   saying, "We need to lend our money to so-and-so."
   You make $20 million a picture.  Shut the f**k up and
   give them a million dollars.  Don't ask Joe Everyday
   for $5.  He might need that $5.  You've got money to
   burn.  I don't like giving my political opinions.
     [...]
   The more of a grasp I can have of myself as an
   everyday guy who just happens to have an unusual job,
   the better off my life is going to be.  I don't think
   I'm extraordinary.

And then later:

   "...but when people give me this bulls**t thing
   about being a role model [through his choice of
   acting roles] and my effect on society, I say bulls**t
   to you.  If people want to know if I'm a role model,
   they should know that I've been married to the same
   woman for 19 years, I drove my daughter's car pool
   until she started driving, I help her with her
   homework.  I make up beds, I take out the garbage.
   I graduated from college, I can read and write.  I can
   speak correctly.  I treat everyone with respect.
   I pay my taxes.  I've never been to jail.  I think
   that's the stuff of a role model.

I have a theory about the Hollywood left - that the more "people" you have doing stuff for you, the more detached from reality you become and the more intolerant you become of any sort of momentary discomfort. Since the goal of modern liberalism is the complete abolition of any sense of personal discomfort whatsoever, it becomes a natural fit for people who get trapped in hedonism.

I caught a Pat Sajak interview of Robert Klein the other night on FOX, and Klein is in favor of taking out Saddam.

From the tone of his questions, I suspect Pat is too.

No - let's not. Hooray for Mel and all those patriots who (by their profession) unfortunately have to have their names ASSociated with Whorleywood.

Thanks for this post - hopefully we can start getting some good, positive, uplifiting comments from some of these actors on this thread in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Start postin'

You are correct. Pat Sajak is very Conservative. Last year, Pat gave a lecture at Hillsdale College entitled The Disconnect Between Hollywoood and America. You can read the text of his lecture here:

Click here

In it, he lashes out very eloquently against the left-media. It is a VERY good read. Check it out.

Kevin, you liked B5 over Star Trek because it had a plot rather than mindless wanderings about the universe.

Ronn Silver is a HUGE liberal. I seriously doubts he supports President Bush.

"Those are OUR planes, now." - Ron Silver at the Bill Clinton Inaugural when a flight of fighter planes flew overhead. Someone groused about the military's presence, prompting Silver's comment.

Silver's a convert, at least in some regards. I was skeptical too, but as the other FReeper said, do your search -- he's AGGRESSIVELY "come over," at least in some regards.

I heard James Woods the other day on the Sean Hannity show. I don't remember the name of the liberal actor he was grilling. The liberal came away sounding platitudinuous and looking like the fool he was. Sound thinking coupled with a good command of the facts is a powerful combination.

"The War on Terrorism has not been as successful as President Bush has stated, and he is feeling pressure to do something, even if that something has nothing to do with actually fighting terrorism! The Bush administration thinks they can fool us into thinking they have the terrorism situation under control by going after Saddam, when all they are doing is exacerbating the problem by creating more outrage against the United States from potential terrorists." - Barbara Streisand
