Being Republican is the New Gay in terms of stereotyping and being under threat of black lists from far left liberal progressive employers calling the shots in Hollywood.
To counter this discrimination, Gary Sinese organized an underground movement called Friends of Abe, after Abraham Lincoln to meet low key in restaurants and private homes.
Fifties icon Pat Boone said, The movement has grown over the past few years from gatherings of a few dozen to one (recently) that drew over 600 to a billionaires California estate. Not afraid to speak out, Boone is revealing that if progressives controlling Hollywoods purse strings, the ones that hire and fire, learn of the force of this growing movement, they could fire conservatives and Republicans.
Sinese, very popular with our troops, has done much to support our military forces He supports first responders and our troops by traveling with a band to entertain in overseas theaters of war.
Born in the blue collar town of Blue Island, IL, he picked the beloved Illinois president Abraham Lincoln to best symbolize Tinsel Town conservatives trying to turn around hearts and minds in Americas entertainment industry.
Two of the worst things the 1960′s counter culture movement started with its days of rage were filling our classrooms and halls of academia with far leftists who turned their anti war crusade into anti American propaganda and joining forces with our bi coastal media entertainment complex.
To me, teaching young people about how bad America is, about how many flaws we have, about how flawed is our capitalistic economic system is, pales in the face of turning them against our first line of defense, our military....
I never could understand it back in the 60′s when I started teaching, and I cant understand it now

I must have this gut confused w/a great actor I saw in a flik a few years ago...
He was Capt.Dan in Forest Gump.
Of course—not a question—merely pointing out...nothing happens by accident in...politiks...
Actually in Hollywood these days being gay is probably a lot more career enhancing than being a Republican.
The blacklist is very, very real in Hollywood. Someone very close to me is in the thick of it. He can’t wait to retire in a couple of years and get the hell out. The powerful in Hollywood will take away your work, your friends and your sanity.
I just think Pat Boone being a leader in Hollywood is pretty anemic. He hasn’t had a Hollywood career in what? 40 years? Gary Sinese on the other hand is cool! I sincerely miss Ron Silver. He was young(ish), hip, urban and had a hell of a lot of moxie.
Also plays Mac Taylor in CSI New York. One of the good guys in the acting industry.
1oo% true. (max in hollywood 90028). The original “circle” was called ‘Friends of Ronnie” (Reagan) and whenever a RW conservative Hollywood biz guy or girl meet, someone would just say ‘F.O.R.’?, the other person just nods with 4 fingers up and that was it.
Interesting essay, and I’m glad to hear of the movement. However, he wants us to contact our Congress. About what?
Hollyweird has “reeled” out of control (pun intended). What’s Congress able to do about it? THe last time Congress tried to do anything about Hollywood, it was saddled with the spectre of McCarthyism and HUAC. For the life of me, I don’t understand why those 2 movements are connected. McCarthy was a SENATOR and had nothing to do with the House, but you’d hardly find anyone under the age of 60 that knows that any more.
don’t watch much tv anymore-nor CDs at home—I flinch every time that warning lingers on the screen, just like when I drive out my dri8veway and the doors lock me in—how many daily reminders we have from bigbromofo!
Silver was in his sixties when he died, but I agree with your premise. The sad fact is I haven’t heard one young big name Hollyweird celeb come out as a conservative. However, I’ve heard plenty going the other way. The entertainment world needs a young big name star to emerge to counter all the leftist nonsense currently propagated by such idiots as Sean Penn and Matt Damon.
I used to live in 90028, on Whitley Terrace....that was before I had political awareness.
Well, that’s why I said “young-ish.” He was somewhat boyish in reality. And he handled his illness with great grace.
I just don’t think a young actor would have either the courage or the knowledge to lead Hollywood out of the wilderness. I think someone who is extremely successful, a tiny bit older and highly intelligent might be able to do. But, on the other hand, I really have no hope, lol!
This article is very poorly written, and everyone knows that Gary Sinise is one of the good guys... Nothing new here... I was hoping to learn the secret hand shake...
that’s still a nice neighborhood...
In nyc now. Miss L.A., lunch at Musso’s.
He is also the narrator of World War II in HD. An interesting TV series presenting footage of the war never before seen.
He also played in Apollo 13
Yes,I’ve seen some of that series.They have been showing the
World at War series on the military channel.Amazing,that the
narrator is Sir Laurence Olivier.
just rubs me wrong—i’m no friend of ab
