Republicans In Hollywood Feel "Hurt"

| Filed under: PolitikKelsey Grammer

Want to hear something shocking?

There are Republicans in Hollywood!

And they're not limited to Stephen Baldwin!

Although, they are a rare breed.

But are the Hollywood liberals big bullies?

Outnumbered by their liberal counterparts, industry conservatives tend to keep their views to themselves, meeting in secret under names such as the "Speak Easy" or "The Sunday Night Club." And if you're a fledgling actor trying to make it in the biz, you best leave your McCain-Palin button at home for your auditions, they say.

Kelsey Grammer, a prominent Republican, says that in his more amateur days he was bullied into keeping his opinions closeted and even into donating to the opposite side, lest he lose his job.

Hey, that's not cool!

But people are trying to alleviate the situation. Andrew Breitbart is launching a "Big Hollywood" blog to bring entertainment conservatives together and highlight, among other things, intolerance from the Left.

Aside from the secret societies, there is the much more visible Hollywood Congress of Republicans, which convenes more regularly to socialize and hear from guest speakers.

But, going too far in either direction can be difficult, especially when the main concern is ratings.

Actor Eric Roberts was admonished by a fellow Liberal for getting political as a guest on The O'Reilly Factor when he returned to the show he was working on. A producer told him, "We're doing a TV show here. We don't need that kind of politicizing. Don't go public with your views."

Roberts is more selective with his battles now.

And so is the Republican campaign, apparently.

While Democratic fundraisers sprung up all over California and Hollywood, the other side was a little more quiet, with McCain and Palin virtually ignoring the Golden State and the entertainment industry.

But, even though Hollywood is 86% Democrat and 14% Republican, Breitbart of "Big Hollywood" warns that the party overlooks California at its own risk.

"They didn't only write off California, they wrote off our culture."

We can deal with Republicans in Hollywood, but….

    The gay Republicans I have met tend to be gays who thoroughly resent what is usually referred to as "gay culture." Most of them prided themselves on not being obvious in their homosexuality. I think that sometimes, it seems like they actually choose to affiliate themselves with the Republican party just to distance themselves from conventional homosexuality. One of my gay friends considers himself a Republican, and it seems that it's mainly because he feels that Republicans are rich people who look out for other rich people and keep the "disgusting" middle and lower classes down "where they belong." It seems to me that gay Republicans exist for a whole variety of reasons. They can be very annoying to other gay men, but I think it's always best to try to understand a person's point-of-view before writing him/her off.

    It was the Democrats who fought to keep blacks in slavery and passed the discriminatory laws. They started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize blacks. THey fought to prevent civil rights law beginning 1860's, and continuing 1950's, 1960's. JFK voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act as senator, And after he became president, JFK was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican.

    Re: RiRiStarlett – J-O-B-S, is a three letter word according to "Plugs" Biden. He was told to stay off the campaign trail for a few days of detox while BO goes Hawaiian. "Plugs" said yesterday that we would have a world crisis within 6 months of BO's inauguration. Thanks for the heads up "Plugs." Could someone ask BO to release his med records, college transcrips, birth certificate? Where are they hiding Manchelle Obama and her college thesis where she states how much she hates the "white devil."

    Actors have such little redeeming qualities, most aren't even truly talented anymore. Liberalism showed the few marks of intelligence.

    Re: misopretty
    Article I of the Constitution establishes an exceptionally limited role for the Vice President — giving the office holder a vote only when the Senate is “equally divided”:
    The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.
    Moreover, the U.S. Senate website explains that the modern role of Vice Presidents has been to preside over the Senate “only on ceremonial occasions.” ThinkProgress contacted Senior Assistant Paliamentarian Peter Robinson, who also disputed Palin’s characterization of the Vice President’s role:
    In modern practice the Vice President doesn’t really control the Senate. … If anyone has a responsibility to try to govern the Senate, it’s the responsibility of the two leaders.
    The following is a statement from Jim Manley, spokesman to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV):
    This comment is all the more puzzling because this is at least the 2nd time she has said this. Gov Palin needs to re-read or perhaps read for the first time the Constitution. While the Vice President presides over the Senate, he or she is not in charge of it. Article 1 says The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.

    The Senate is part of a co-equal branch of the federal government.

    I am a moderate liberal democrat, but even I don't approve of the bullying and pressure on conservatives. And liberals can voice their views, then conservatives are welcome to do it too. I don't care. And it give a bad image to liberals when they do bully the conservatives that way. But hey remember in the old hollywood days it was worse and just it used to the opposite where if any actors were even suspected of having liberal ties they were blacklisted from hollywood and their lives ruined.

    I think most of us normal regular citizens out there don't give a damn what these actors have to say about who they are voting for. We're going to vote for who we want to vote for. I'm voting for Obama because I want to, not because Leonardo DiCaprio said so.

    I can't wait until the day that there is a MASSIVE discrimination suit brought against either a major studio or network. It is the epitome of irony that Conservatives, who are branded by the hypocritical left as bigots, are the ones who are truly the victims of discrimination.

    Even in NYC, where I live, if you where a McCain/Palin button on the street, you are yelled at and have hate speech thrown at you. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    I know two gay republicans. I think it maybe because neither see's themselves as a natural born woman. They seem to think they are white men republicans and not lesbian white women. I just dont understand a Republican gay person? WTF?

    and on another note…
    do you know what will happen to this country if there is unversal healthcare? doctors wont be making shit after that…



  22. 122

    Perez, I absolutely love your website…but there is one thing that bothers me. Your political status. I'm Independent and completely against Obama and Biden. I can not believe how celebrities have to keep their political passions a secret if they are Republican. Thats absolutely crazy! I understand you are for Obama, but I think you should mention the good things about Republicans too. Don't be one of those celebrities that push ppl to vote for your person just because you have the power to do so.

    No way! Hypocrits in Hollywood? They're sooo liberal that it took all the way for Halle Barry for a black chick to get an award in her own industry in her own town among her own peers - afterall it wasn't the people in Kansas who denied Oscars for so long was it? How many gays are kept closeted - even today in this hypocritically scared little town? Brave talk about how green and open the rest of us should ive - but then they live another. Black listed writers, etc are another example. Hollywood likes to think they lead the way, but their actions speak louder than their words. So given their history, not surprised to hear they feel the need to surpress opposing viewpoints.

    Re: sweetpiece
    SHUTUP about sarah palin… how about Joe Biden who just said that we need to mark his words, our country WILL be tested, within six months of Obama's presidency… this is the second time that he has alluded to something ominous that would happen if obama is elected. The first time was during the primaries, before he was chosen as baracks running mate, where he spoke to his fellow democrats and said that he respected obama but did not think he had the experience for the presidency and that other countries would percieve him as weak…. EVEN BIDEN KNOWS OBAMA IS UNQUALIFIED… pretty sad when your own VP didn't even want you to get the nomination.

    Re: allym – You can always tell them you don't use redundancies in your sentences. "smart and intelligent"

    I feel so bad for Kelsey Grammer, look at where his being Republican has put him… as the highest paid TV actor ever? Oh wait…

    Hollywood isn't full of liberals. The actors are there. They have to be: it's where all the conservatives in the 2,500 miles of land east of LA DROVE them to live in peace. And outside of LA and SF, California is full of rednecks and "red" staters.

    Exactly what conservative views are controversial though that can't be talked about? Paying less taxes? That's why all these films are shot in Canada now. Going to war in Iraq? These people aren't pacifists - a few of them may admit to be… and then THEY'RE vilified by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and the whole table of authors with slapped together books on media "liberal elites" in the discount bin at Barnes and Noble. Being against gay marriage? I know Grammer doesn't support that. (Who would he costar with in his shows?)

    LA is full of idiots to begin with. If you are so committed and correct in your political views, it should take you 2 seconds to put anyone in their place who says something ignorant or degrading to you for them.

    There are gay republicans who know there is more than one issue that drives political beliefs, unlike some who just vote for the dems because they think they are the gay party. NEITHER side in this election support gay marriage so it's crazy to even use that as an excuse to vote for Obama if you are a gay person. Gay republicans and Republican celebs keep their mouths shut because they know the liberal left will do nothing but bash them or start the name-calling. You can't have an opinion if you don't agree with the liberals. The LEFT IS NOT ACCEPTING of anyone who has their own mind. It's OK for Madonna and P.Diddy to spew crazy shit all over YouTube, say demeaning things about Bush (while anything said about Barry is racist) but if a conservative entertainer goes on a legit show such as Larry King and gives simply an opinion THEN that celeb gets threatened with his job. The left is not the party of acceptance and free thinking any longer. It's become a party of close minded, hate-filled people who think they hold the only correct opinions in the world.

    Re: knowitall
    YOU are a typical liberal who can't accept someone has different view than you. I know plenty of gays who are voting for McCain, a lot actually. See some people vote based on issues and not who the media brainwashes them into voting for. Some people have a mind of their own. SMART gay people know that Obama does not support gay marriage any more than McCain does, some gay people are smart enough to see Obama's health and tax plans are a bad idea.

    During the fifty's,
    many in Hollywood were
    blacklisted due to the Commie scare.
    It was so wrong.
    .
    Now the new blacklist written
    up by so called "liberals" in Hollywood
    is targeting those who do not share their
    liberal agenda.
    What makes their blacklist OK?
    .
    Now that the shoe is on the other foot,
    it is somehow OK to blacklist Republicans
    in Hollywood.
    Is it not true that ANY blacklisting is wrong?
    Why are liberals so often anything BUT liberal?
    Are only Liberals allowed to work in Hollywood?
    Are only gay men (women get a free pass)
    allowed to design clothes on Project Runway?
    .
    Bigotry is a two way street.
    Straight people have rights also,
    and so do people who are not liberal.
    Non liberal and straight people
    did not choose to be that way,
    they were born that way.
    Give then the same consideration
    you would expect and demand.
    .
    Just because they do not agree with
    your politics or sexual choices does not
    make them your enemy.
    many liberals claim to be free and open
    with their ideas, yet their minds are closed
    to those that do not agree with their every
    thought and deed.
    That is anything but LIBERAL!



  38. 138

    People are just people beneath
    their skin color or ideas or sexual
    orientation.
    Give those that are different from you
    the same consideration that you demand.
    We are all people and
    all people deserve respect.
    .
    Liberals demand respect.
    People of different races demand respect.
    Show the same consideration to
    conservatives, they are people too.
    Don't blame them,
    they were just born that way,
    it was not a lifestyle choice.

    If actors (or gossip bloggers) wanted to be politicians, they should have gone through a college political science program and moved to DC. ACTORS ARE NOT POLITICIANS! I don't understand why all of Hollywood feels they need to put in their two cents! Half these assholes won't even vote, yet they are using their star power to try and sway the election. They need to stick to acting, and leave politics to the people who know one or two things about how America works and about what real people need every day.

    Uncle Karl’s playbook: Mark Anthony Jacoby, who owns the firm known as Young Political Majors (YPM), was recently arrested after allegedly registering himself to vote, once in 2006 and again in 2007, at an address where did not live. An investigation by the Secretary of State's Election Fraud Investigation Unit revealed that Jacoby twice registered to vote at the address of a childhood home in Los Angeles although he no longer lived there….the big shocker he was hired by Republicans. Why isn't the MSM all over this, because just like ACORN it doesn't matter!



  57. 157

    Y'all a bunch of crazy muthafuckas…. As somebody who is really a political minority (like a gay republican, but not), I get to stand back see both sides treating the other side like shit, wherever one side has a presumptive majority. I live inside the Beltway, where conservatives are best to shut the fuck up unless they're in front of a Fox News camera. When I go visit the folks in mein heimat, liberals are the tool of the devil who promote homosexuality, godlessness, uppity negroes, communism, half-caff/half-decaf mocha lattes with soy milk, and poetry slams. Most people are just crazy. Put enough like-minded people around each other and the crazy comes out. In Hollywood, it just so happens most of the crazies are on what passes for the Left in the United States.

    Re: brutalbarb666 – Uh, seriously?! You're saying that we're closeminded and ignorant and uneducated without, I'm betting, understanding what conservatives actually believe. I know so many closeminded people, both republican and democrat, so saying all those things about conservatives is the pot calling the kettle black.
