A glimpse of the dark side. Sounds a bit like Canberra

An alarming journey into Hollywood leftism.

I entered this gilded group as a man in transition. I identified liberal, but was quickly discovering my inner rightwing self. I’d been red pilled, and it forced my eyes open to a widely held, deeply rooted Tinseltown sentiment. And that is…Hollywood hates conservatives. I mean ¡HATES! them. My friends in Middle America think they know this already. Kathy Griffin beheadings, Snoop Dogg’s assassination porn, and every allegedly funny late night talk show host prove this nightly. But unless you live here amongst the glitterati, you can’t truly grasp how the intensity of that white-hot hate is woven into the fabric of this city. The facial expression when a typical La La Land leftist first learns that your politics are right-of-center is unmistakable.

The film industry is tanking at the box office because the ordinary non-left folk in the community have finally had it with the entrenched leftism in the film community. Like the punters who punted the NFL when the players decided to go political recently. The high tide of that caper, an offensive line that allowed their quarterback to be repeatedly sacked by the defence.

    Leftism is ingrained i Hollywood ,suppose it goes back to the origins of the film industry ,many New York Jewish opportunists, Infected by socialism brought to the US by east European and Russian Jews lefy[tism was endemic amongst these people witness the number of Jews in the Bolsheviks and Cheka . The second generation were as bad witness the number MCarthy exposed ,also who gave the soviets atomic secrets enabling them to make nuclear weapons . The third generation are just as bad ,selling out to the communist u.n now ther IS another swamp in need of draining . The USA has many swamps in need of draining and we are not all that different .

    Indeed.

    It was pleasing to see that Suburbicon, the latest “let’s pour scorn and derision on middle America” effort from the loathsome George Clooney, and starring the hypocritical Matt Damon, has become the most recent box office bomb.

    Ignore their films and they will suffer appropriately.

    Yeah, Hollywood is pretty fucked up.

    But unless an alternative establishes itself I expect conservative America (and everywhere else) to grow weary of maintaining their umbrage, and while not flocking to movies, they will just mentally discount it.

    Hollywood will put on a show of repentance, scale back the preachiness for a bit and then…business as usual.

    Conservatives are frankly more pragmatic, and have a lot more to be getting on with the lefties. When they want to unwind they will reach for something imperfect rather than histrionically moaning over the lack of perfection.

    Is there some other place in America that has the infrastructure and the wherewithal to seize this moment of heightened loathing to compete with Hollywood?

    It is a pain at dinner parties all over the world. Its too hard to argue with them, numbers are usually on their side. I try to explain that I am not really a Trump supporter, but he must be better than Hillary would have been, and 90% of the junk they absorb from the MSM is fake news. Its better to be uninformed than misinformed. Shocked silence, then BUT BUT BUT, then we talk about the weather and climate change. More shocked silence. Then we talk about sailing.

    But I must be winning. They avoid politics when in my company, and I have not been banished.

    If they keep producing preachy schlock, no one will buy it.

    its not just hollywood, i gave up AFL over their SJW carping as well

    These are the people who like to call conservative opponents ‘fascists’.
    From the article I know which is the bunch who sound more like fascists to me.

    They are pooing in their own nest more and more often though. This is from overnight:

    ESPN Lost 15,000 Subscribers A Day In October

    As Breitbart reported, the troubled cable sports channel lost 480,000 paying subscribers last month – or about 15,000 a day. The loss coincided with Trump’s battle with professional sports over whether leagues should punish players for kneeling during the national anthem – a battle that Trump appears to be winning.

    Subscriber losses have led to layoffs of on-air talent in Bristol while also stoking speculation that Disney might move to spin off its increasingly embattled sports channel. How many more subscribers need to cut the cord before Disney decides it’s no longer worth carrying ESPN’s baggage?

    “Cutting the cord” seems to be accelerating. Maybe it will also increasingly affect Hollywood. For any disgusted NFL or movie buffs I suggest reading a few books instead.

    An alarming journey into Hollywood leftism.

    The truth about communists in Hollywood

    Here is irrefutable evidence that they were very adept at using the screen to pound pro-Soviet propaganda into the heads of unsuspecting Americans in theaters coast-to-coast.

    The more than 500 pages of “Hollywood Traitors; Blacklisted Screenwriters — Agents of Stalin, Allies of Hitler” expose in detail and with infinite documentation the pro-Soviet propaganda machine, including during the 22 months when Stalin and Hitler were allies.

    This long-overdue book is authored by Allan H. Ryskind, who grew up in Hollywood, and whose father was Morrie Ryskind, lyricist, writer of stage and screen productions, including scripts for the comedic Marx Brothers.
    The elder Ryskind, a staunch anti-communist, was a cooperative “friendly” witness before the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC), which held years of hearings probing communism in Hollywood. For decades, Hollywood has struck back by using its control of large segments of the motion picture and TV industries to smear the reputations of those who had exposed them.
    Today, the younger Mr. Ryskind, author of the new volume (and now editor-at-large for the 70-year-old Washington weekly Human Events), has given us specifics as to how the talents of screenwriters and others in Hollywood were deployed in the service of America’s enemies.
    That subversion even showed up in the late 1990s in the beloved family-oriented TV series “Touched by an Angel.” Suddenly, totally out of character, the defense of the Hollywood Communists was portrayed as a cause to be advanced with help from the “angel,” the sweet Irish-accented actress Roma Downey.

    Is there some other place in America that has the infrastructure and the wherewithal to seize this moment of heightened loathing to compete with Hollywood?

    No, but with a bit of a nudge and some dollars Bollywood could do the job.

  12. Boambee John

    PS Think spaghetti Westerns in the 70s. Curry Westerns? They already do musicals quite well.

    Well, it’s not in the US, but plenty of TV productions are shot in Canada these days.

    It was pleasing to see that Suburbicon, the latest “let’s pour scorn and derision on middle America” effort from the loathsome George Clooney, and starring the hypocritical Matt Damon, has become the most recent box office bomb.

    Will it win an Oscar, though?

    People complain about the number of superhero movies being made these days, and by and large I avoid them too, but I’d rather watch even the schlockiest Marvel or DC offering out there than be lectured to by George Clooney about racism. It’s nice to know that apparently a great many people feel the same way.

  15. Jimf

    Yes hwood seems to be a cesspit. Who knew? I’d also venture that the quality of movies these days has descended into lowest common denominator farce. Also why numbers are down .
    Special digital effects over direction,,dumb writing ,safe narratives, Superhero film version 7. Hemsworth’s FFS.
    And to think actors as talented as Voight ,Duvall,Turturro etc back in the day were 2nd tier players?
    The powers that be/cosy club need to stop molesting each other and focus on making something worth watching perhaps?

    It’s taken quite a while for the leftist slant of hollywood product to be recognised, when it has been bleeding obvious for decades.
    As for cable – we had to sign on for Foxtel to get news services and commentary that was watchable.

  17. manalive

    … the Writers Guild of America, then known as the Screen Writers Guild, formed to establish criteria for doling out these important recognitions. On paper, the effort appeared laudable. However, the union’s covert mission was far more Machiavellian – they wanted to control the supply of screenplays for the entire movie industry …

    That’s true.
    One of the Hollywood Ten, the director of one one of my all-time great movies and one that oddly still looks ’modern’ The Caine Mutiny (1954) Edward Dmytryk wrote of his experiences with John Howard Lawson etc. in his book Odd Man Out, a plain balanced account of the period without the Gonzo journalistic style.

  18. Kneel

    “As for cable – we had to sign on for Foxtel to get news services and commentary that was watchable.”

    Buy a Roku from Amazon. (starting about A$60 delivered)
    Set up a geo-blocker account (about A$50 p.a.) and register your Roku with a USA address.
    Start watching RT America (yes, “Russia Today”).
    Old style journalism – some left talking-heads, some right.
    News is actual events – video of event or witness interviews.
    Very little commentary in the news, just news.
    Some MSM says they’re biased? They report that, then show their side and leave it at that.

    Biased, you think?
    Larry King has a show on RT USA, to name one well known name.
    American and British reporters aplenty.
    Even if you think it IS biased, it is at least an anti-dote to the massively left-leaning MSM.
    IMO, best news channel in existence – what ABC (Oz) & BBC used to be.

    Oh, you can tie your NetFlix account to the Roku as well to watch without a “smart” TV.
    Also Amazon, Google, Hulu etc accounts, and of course your locally stored content.
    Plus plenty of live and video-on-demand “channels” – free, subscription and pay-per-view; eg, Pluto TV, Sony Crackle.
    USA networks “freeview” equivalents too – eg, currently at least 6 eps of “The Good Doctor” are streamable.
    Create your own channel, if you desire – starting with a free service. So your local sports team, eg, can have their own Roku channel showing the last 6 games they played, you upload new content when you want.
    Most popular streaming box in the USA.

    Alas, Telstra wrecked any chance of getting a good local version – “Telstra TV” is a branded Roku box.

    You can see what’s available by browsing roku.com for channel lists – plenty of bollywood, latin america, african and european channels if you want foreign content. Plenty of christian and muslim, hindu etc channels too. Kids channels, “family” channels, soccer channels, motorsport channels, documentary channels, social issues debate channels, you name it. Lots of crap, to be sure – with over 400,000 channels, how could it not? And a single “channel” can have it’s own sub-channels too. So much content you couldn’t even watch 5 seconds of each one in a whole lifetime!
