Fun:Hollywood conservatives

Warning icon orange.svg This page contains too many unsourced statements and needs to be improved.

Hollywood conservatives could use some help. Material referring to living people must be handled carefully, because they are more open to legal threats. Reference any contentious allegations solidly; unreferenced allegations should be removed. Whatever is credible should be sourced, and what is not should be removed.


Wow, who knew that @chuckwoolery has become such a vortex of neo-Nazism and antisemitism? Did I miss a memo?
—Charles Johnson[1]

According to conservatives, the entertainment industry is dominated by liberals ("Hollywood values"). A secretive organization known as 'Friends of Abe'Wikipedia existed from 2004-2016: it was effectively destroyed by Trump.[2] Friends of Abe may have had as many as 1500 members.[3] Known members included Gary Sinise, Jon Voight, Kelsey Grammer, Lionel Chetwynd and Jeremy Boreing.[3]

It is worth noting that the appeal to celebrity is a fallacy. Politics is well outside the realm of Hollywood expertise, and celebrities who become politicians can create some right royal cockups, often relying on the style over substance fallacy for polices because celebrity is all about style.

To illustrate the liberal dominance of Hollywood, here is a list of that endangered, oppressed, voiceless species — the showbiz conservative. (Those marked with '#' are deceased.)

Actors

People ask me questions about present situations in life, and I say, 'I don't know, I'm just an actor. I don't have any opinions. Actors are pretty stupid. My opinion is not worth anything. There's no controversy for me, so don't engage me in it, because I'm not going to participate.'
—Anthony Hopkins[4]

It can be hard to ferret out what actors actually think: are they still acting when they're giving an interview? Do they actually believe in anything at all? To be fair, there are some brilliant people who are actors, but we're keeping it a secret just for their reputations.

Reality Television "Stars"

If you thought that people couldn't get any stupider than Anthony Hopkins claimed, well, "Those who can't act at all are put into TV reality shows."[205]

Game show hosts

According to an article in The Daily Beast, with few exceptions (former The Price Is Right host Bob Barker might be the most unusual because he is an animal rights activist and was also in a Republican political ad), nearly every game show host is a Republican.[207]

Nazi in the closet

David Cole/David Stein: Notorious Holocaust revisionist who posed as a prominent Hollywood GOP organizer for years before being outed.[208]

He also compared Hollywood to Nazi Germany because of its anti-Trump stance… which is incredibly ironic, to say the least.[5]
