First, let me apologize for not finishing Tuesday's thoughts. Had a last minute change in schedule that provided for no chance to write. Therefore, we will first be discussing the new Hollywood Blacklist.
One of Us! One of Us!
One of the big myths about the Hollywood blacklists is that Joe McCarthy had something to do with them. That is false. It was the House UnAmerican Activities Committee; Joe McCarthy was a Senator. Another myth is the hardship that the people implicated had to endure, and that all of Hollywood stood up to defend them. Bogus! There is a famous picture of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart that is taken to be the Hollywood delegation coming to the defense of these leftist screenwriters and actors. It is actually the delegation LEAVING after hearing the drivel of one of the pro-Stalinist people they came to support, John Howard Lawson. The Hollywood Ten were sneering liberalistas who wanted to be able to promote communism and pro-Soviet views without being called before Congress. Their friends, Bogart and the like, came under the false pretense of supporting free speech. After a day of listening to Lawson, they left, regretting the whole thing. Lawson was a member of the Hollywood Ten of security risks and communist sympathizers. However, all we are told by the standard history is how these actors and writers suffered at the hands of nazi-like interrogations by the House committee. The Congressional Record tells a different story. Lawson ranted and frothed at the House, calling them Nazis and predicting American Concentration Camps; he even had to be physically restrained. Bacall and Bogart left, seeing these 'free thinkers' for what they really were: pro communists who hated America. They called coming to Washington to support those Hollywood Ten ill-advised, even foolish, and said they were very naive.
What happened to these Hollywood Ten? Well, to hear the liberal propaganda, they suffered mightily. The liberals try to pepper us with their sob stories about this, but what happens? They blurt out the truth by accident. To wit: So called Blacklist Survivor Norma Barzman described her life in 'exile' in Paris: "We had dinner with Picasso every Tuesday night when we were at our country house in Provence. yves Montand and Simone Signoret...were all friends. Plus, we got to work with all the amazing European Directors....It was hard, but it was also the time of my life." Meanwhile, in the country they supported and loved, the Soviet Union, people were dragged to death and off to gulags. All that really happened to the Hollywood Ten was that they weren't allowed to overly infest the already liberal airwaves with their pro-Stalin and Soviet propaganda. Boo-hoo, you could not sell that episode of the Twilight Zone. Darn! People were being slaughtered in a country you called forward thinking.
However, there is a new blacklist. The number of conservatives and actual people who love America in Hollywood is growing. See, predominantly, Hollywood hates America. They hate our strength, they hate our views, and think the citizenry is the vast unwashed. That is the liberal model. The so-called educated tell us what to do with our lives and money, Marx's and Lenin's dream of so-called utopia come true! Leave it in the hands of bureaucrats! Wow, that worked so well for Brook Farm, the Soviet Govt, and even China! Yeah, Cultural Revolutions and Great Leaps Forward for Everyone! That is what they want, and they try to twist our minds to it. See, they think because they are on moving pictures that they actually know what they are talking about. Some actors who have never farmed a day in their life have been called before Congress to talk about Farmers. Why? What the hell do they know? They played a farmer in a movie once? See Ann Coulter's brilliant book Treason for details on the actors' sense of self-importance.
Excuse the rambling. Back to the Hollywood blacklist of today. Right now, it is small. People who came out in support of the war are on it. Hollywood hates wars, because they (the actors) think they should be the only heroes, not real people defending our freedom. However, James Woods and some others have been denied roles now because of their pro-Soldier stance. Nothing Hollywood loves more than protesting. Yay, this is our chance to come up with some ribbon color schemes to go with my Versace! Yeeha! Give me a break. Woods was an honorable man in standing up. Among other celebs blacklisted or made to appear ignorant and unwashed are: Toby Keith, who lambasted the Commie Chicks (excuse me, the Dixie Chicks) when they disgraced our country and President with their talk overseas. Why do they do that overseas? Because they are nothing more than hucksters, appealing to the crowd. Also, Darryl Worley, who sang the song "Have you Forgotten?" has been denied opportunities, but he has ben successful because of us unwashed American regulars who still love our country. Now, the latest persons to be blacklisted are Hollywood Legends: Mel Gibson and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Mel Gibson, who has been a great action hero and appeared in many soft and cuddly liberal movies like Lethal Weapon 2, The Man Without a Face, Conspiracy Theory; has found Jesus. He has found religion and wants to make a movie on Christ based on the best primary source: The Holy Bible. He has had trouble finding a studio and has had to finance much of it on his own, because we cannot tell the truth about Jesus. No, lets portray the Son of God as a homoerotic character, or as someone who is secretly lecherous, as in the play Corpus Christi or in the film The Last Temptation of Christ. No, we cannot try to make a film that will spread the gospel. Actors are gods, not the Jewish Carpenter. Don't you know better Mel? Didn't ultimate liberal goat boy Danny Glover teach you anything? Take the Kool-Aid, Mel, really. Thankfully, Mel is a firm man and is making the film. Now that they have not stopped production, the liberals are trying to discredit Mel, talking about how his family is and how he treats his kids. Shameful!
The same is going on for Arnold's campaign for governor. Arnold supports Bush, has supported Republicans since he came over from Austria. Liberals hate Arnold because they could use him. An immigrant, he could be used as a poster boy for striking down illegal immigrant statutes. No, he believes in American Citizenship and earning your place, not having it freely given without effort. He is a true American Dream Story, coming over here with nothing but dedication and making it. Liberals hate his loyalty to family. Kennedys will kill each other to get ahead, or sell each other out, but Arnold, probably as a favor to his wife, gave money to the Kennedys' various campaigns over the years, yet his own family is selling him out. Typical. Now, cute and fuzzy liberal spitfire Katie Couric comes on the air the day after Arnold announces his candidacy and begins talking about his Dad's supposed Nazi support, Arnold's own past with women and how he raises his children. Yet, liberals found it shameful we would bring up a President's personal life as a means of judging him. Typical liberal double standard. Lets look at the Kennedys. Womanizing, drug abuse, even covering up a death of an innocent secretary (anyone say, much less spell, Chappaquitick?); yet they are trying to portray Arnold as a Nazi womanizer who is out to destroy California.
I disagree with some of Arnold's politics, and his ideas. But, I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt to at least hear what he has to say. Yet, now he is on Hollywood's craplist. Tom Hanks, a man I used to respect, has been trying to destroy Arnold's candidacy, and has vowed to see it through. Washed up has-been hussy Cybill Shepard has spread dark hints of rumors about Arnold. They hate the fact he could actually help the state, and that one of them might succeed in actually making a difference, and that that one is conservative. They fear Arnold could be another Reagan. Heaven help us! Reagan only made california great again, and eventually went on the win the Cold War, which Liberals said would go on forever. Arnold, i want to hear from you. I will not listen to the propaganda.
That's it for now, my hands are tired from the typing. Tune in tomorrow for more truth medicine......
