Are you now, or have you ever been, a Trump supporter?
It seems to me for most of my life I’ve heard left wingers whingeing about the persecution of Hollywood folks back in the McCarthy era. To hear left wingers talk, many Hollywood greats were forced into Siberian labor camps where they barely survived by eating tundra moss and shoe leather.
It doesn’t take too much digging to realize that really what happened is they had to fire a maid or something because a couple of jobs got blocked. But the way they howl and complain that they were blacklisted for their Communist sympathies! And that at the height of the Cold War.
Now it’s conservatives in Hollywood who are feeling the heat. Even being a tepid conservative in the age of Trump is grounds for blacklisting. The LA Times recently reported on the perilous situation for right wingers.
As an Academy Award-winning producer and a political conservative, Gerald Molen has worked in the entertainment…www.latimes.com
I’m sure the general reaction of most reading this or the LA Times article is a gentle nodding of the head, private glee that there is at least one area where the conservatives are getting shafted.
But what does the left believe in anymore –– freedom of speech, the democratic process, the Constitution –– is there anything?
They spent 8 years howling that the GOP blocked legislation, and now they openly declare they will block any and everything they can (because this is different). They used to be against crony capitalism, free trade and globalism, but now they seem ready to embrace any shi**y ideas that the Merkels and Soroses of the world want to push through (because times have changed).
As I see very overt attempts in Europe to subvert BREXIT, constant calls to subvert the Trump administration, and even calls for violence against populists throughout the Western world, I can’t begin to imagine what the left and the globalists (now practically synonymous terms) want.
