Cruz Against the Machine: The “Uncool” Strike Back

Posters-of-Tattooed-Ted-Cruz-Show-Up-in-Beverly-HillsFinally some good news: The once secret, now private, conservative Hollywood group, Friends of Abe, has just received its 501(c)3 status, which has been three years in the making, after being harassed by the I.R.S. I’ll give props to the New York Times for the reporting of the I.R.S.’s egregious targeting of the group, as they may have been instrumental in shaming the agency into acquiescing.

So now that Friends of Abe is no longer a secret, it’s probably safe to say that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke at an “FOA” event last Saturday (at an undisclosed location), with a turnout of nearly 400 Hollywood Conservatives.

Taking over the stage with no notes or a Teleprompter in sight (Sen. Cruz joked that all the Teleprompters were tied up in Washington), Sen. Cruz spoke passionately and eloquently about liberty and real hope and change for the future. One of my favorite quotes of the day was, “Reaganomics is starting a business in your garage; Obamanomics is moving into your parents’ garage.” And, without missing a beat, Sen. Cruz even joked about the poster that had seen all over LA last weekend (credited to street artist Sabo), featuring a tatted up Sen. Cruz with a ciggy hanging out of his mouth. Instead of being offended, Sen. Cruz took to twitter and responded, “Saw this, but noticed an error. So I wanted to make one thing clear: I don’t smoke cigarettes”. Sen. Cruz even signed a poster for one of the guests at another event later that evening. How cool is that? Imagine a petulant President Obama finding himself on the same poster. I can already hear the cries of racism by his sycophants.

Speaking of cool, a new Youtube video featuring Sen. Cruz, entitled “Cruz Against the Machine,” is starting to go viral on social media, sparked by the enthusiasm generated by the poster. The video, produced by the anonymous Ghost Army Dispatches, has Sen. Cruz’s face photoshopped into a variety of tough guy pictures with his best quotes streaming continuously. The whole vibe of the video feels fresh and edgy – and dare I say, sexy. After hearing Sen. Cruz speak several times, and briefly meeting him, I believe the video truly captures his spirit. Looks like the “uncool” are striking back.

After five years of a rainbow emblazened, mom jean wearing, bike helmeted, dictator bowing, girly baseball throwing President, recently seen hawking Obamacare on the allegedly cool Funny or Die (I chose death), many are ready for something badass – or even “wacko bird”.

Anita Gunn

California PolitiChick "Anita Gunn" is a closeted conservative working the entertainment business. Anita started at a major talent agency, assisting a well-known music agent, and is now a VP at a major movie studio. Anita grew up in a very liberal Jewish home, and bought the Utopian dream of a one world government and social justice for all. Anita did her best to "save the planet," pontificating about how the evil Republicans and greedy corporations were destroying the earth. 9/11 shook Anita's foundation and everything that she believed. By the time Obama burst into the scene in 2007, Anita was morphing into a conservative. Of course, coming out of the closet as a conservative in the entertainment industry is pretty much career suicide, she says, so in 2011, the name "Anita Gunn" was born. Anita has done commentary about the culture war on such radio shows as the Dr. Gina Show, Real Side with Joe Messina and Socialism is not an Option on Blog Talk Radio. Anita started a secret conservative Facebook group which has 1000 active members, and is part of another secret group of artists who behind such videos as Cruz Against the Machine. There are still some remnants from Anita's liberal days, including the love of Astrology and wearing platforms and bellbottoms--and yet signs of her conservative switch can be seen by her ever-present gun necklace. Anita says her goal is to help rebrand and hip up the conservative movement to include more artists, musicians, actors, gays and minorities and young people. Anita's belief is that if she saw the light, there are others who would also embrace the conservative movement, if only just shown the way. Follow Anita Gunn on Twitter @AnitaGunn1.
