Contrary to what they often say, liberals are among the most intolerant people in the United States. They are always quick to shout, “Racist!” or “Homophobe!” Yet they proclaim how “tolerant” they are. What they’re really doing is saying, “Shut up. We respect all views just so long as you agree with ours.”
For some people in Hollywood, being a Republican is like what it was to be a communist back in the 40’s and 50’s. Unlike communists however, Republicans are not trying to turn our country into the USSR. Yet, Republicans in tinseltown have to sneak around because if they are found out, it could cause them to lose work.
Several Republicans in Hollywood want to attend fundraisers for Donald Trump, but as the Hollywood Reporter tells us, they fear the potential backlash:
After Donald Trump finishes taping Jimmy Kimmel Live! at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday, he’ll head to the Los Angeles mansion of Tom and Rachelle Barrack for an event that could be considered the GOP presumptive presidential nominee’s foray into campaign fundraising.
The effort won’t include many in the entertainment industry but that is expected to change, according to several insiders, most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because they say it is too uncomfortable to be a Republican in liberal Hollywood.
In fact, several celebrities and wealthy entertainment executives tried, largely unsuccessfully, to wrangle free entrance into Wednesday’s fundraiser — which costs as much as $100,000 per couple — not necessarily to save money, but because buying a ticket means they’d have to publicly disclose their choice for president earlier than they are willing to do so. By contrast, the famous guests at fundraisers for Hillary Clinton and other Democrats oftentimes are leaked to the press both before and after events to generate media coverage.
Of course, nobody cares if celebrities are linked to Democrats. That’s cool. But to be a Republican and support the Republican nominee for President? Heresy.
People will say, “Hey, this is not a violation of free speech because it is not the government.”
That is complete nonsense. There is the letter of the constitution and there is the spirit of the constitution and when a person has to hide their political beliefs due to retribution from others who don’t agree with those beliefs, the spirit of free speech and free assembly are spat on.
We saw what happened in the tech industry when former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was pushed out of his job when he dared to have a different opinion than his peers on gay marriage.
This is no different and people should not have their livelihoods messed with as a result.
