When I was a teenager in high school, Jane Fonda was over in Vietnam riding on tanks with the Communists and spouting garbage about how evil America and the military were. At the time, Americans were appalled at her behavior and we carry that memory of her to this day. That was followed up by films that little by little started pushing an agenda that undermined America’s values. Seeds were planted that religion, military service, traditional marriage, fidelity and family values were passé and out of touch with the “hip” new world. Like a cancer these messages started to spread and take hold and now we find ourselves in the final stages of the disease.
Today, hardly anyone blinks when they see Sean Penn appearing with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela for his re-election campaign. This is a man who has been a brutal dictator for years and recently allied himself with not only Ahmadinejad of Iran, but now has gone against the United Nations and allied with Syria! Good choice Penn. Both Ahmadinejad and Chavez want to weaken American “imperialism” and divide the world’s power into multiple centers. I say Penn is guilty of treason, how about you?
Then we have the lunatic fringe in Hollywood like Rosanne Barr and Cher. Rosanne, who is currently running for President alongside Cindy Sheehan as her VP has signed on with the Peace and Freedom party after the Green party distanced themselves from her. After her tweets about Chick-fil-A such as “anyone who eats s***fil-A deserves to get cancer…” and “off to grab a s***fil-A sandwich on my way to worshiping Christ, supporting Aipac and war in Iran”, it surprises me that anyone would even listen to her, let alone take her seriously. As for Cher, she has gone completely off the rails as evidenced by her ranting tweets about Mitt Romney and the Tea Party.
I could go on and on. Bill Maher with his disgusting comments who is always hiding behind “satire”; Alec Baldwin who wanted to stone Henry Hyde to death, Martin Sheen, Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore, and Julia Roberts. Who ARE these people?
The thing that really makes me think Hollywood has lost its mind, or is totally clueless as to what is going on, is their war on capitalism. Huh? These are some of the biggest capitalists in the world! Harry Belafonte hates capitalism??? These people make millions and millions of dollars all due to a free and capitalistic society. They negotiate huge contracts with back-end deals, merchandising rights etc, and God forbid you screw them over; a team of thirty lawyers will be on your back. Many of them hire high-powered tax accountants to shelter their money while others don’t bother to pay taxes at all! The hypocrisy is staggering.
Thank God we live in a free society where we can choose to dismiss these people if we want to. We can turn off the TV, not go to their films and basically just laugh at their stupidity. It makes it harder though when the media treats them with respect and basically ridicules those of us who are moral, honest and patriotic. Every chance the media gets it will bash Tim Tebow for his faith or Mitt Romney for being successful or Dan Cathy for just having a belief!! Occupy Wall Street will get hours and hours of media coverage while Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor and Restoring Love events hardly get a mention.
We may laugh at Hollywood and write them off as crazy, but they control the youth. When young people get their news from Bill Maher and Jon Stewart, you know you are in trouble.
The only way to fight back is for more Conservative voices to speak up. We can’t be afraid of them. If we fight back maybe they won’t look at us as pushovers. We have been nice for too long, I guess it is our moral nature, but we need to stand up and fight and let everyone see that we are a force to be reckoned with. Hollywood and the media have the megaphone right now but the more they throw at us the stronger we get. Take heart, everyday another conservative blog or website is taking hold and that is why we are driving Hollywood and the leftists crazy.
