And here is the part we weren't expecting — it's because he's a right-wing conservative!
We didn't think Montana was the most liberal state in the union, but apparently a high school principle told Schindler's List producer Gerald Molen that he couldn't speak at graduation because he's “a right-wing conservative.”
The Oscar-winning producer has spoken at dozens of high school graduation ceremonies and was shocked when he was told by Ronan High principle Tom Stack said he "didn’t want the kids exposed to that."
The worst part is that this guy didn’t have the common courtesy to tell Molen about his decision until AFTER he made the 90 minute drive there.
That's not cool! Someone's politics, whether liberal OR conservative, is no reason for censorship (unless they are just going to be nasty in some way or another). From what it sounds like, the Hollywood veteran's speech wasn't even remotely political either.
He was going to talk about Oscar Schindler's courage and ask students:
"Imagine your future is a movie. Forty years from now, you’re writing a script about your accomplishments. What would that script look like?”
Sounds like a good speech to us! Do U think this was some serious bullshiz or what?
