Liberal bigmouth gets smacked down by Hollywood
Examiner ^ | August 31, 2013 | Martha

Is the dumping of the most loquacious and obnoxious liberal from one of Hollywood’s most prestigious positions an indication that movie land is finally getting the message?

Evidently it is as Michael Moore is no longer a governor on the documentary board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. During the election that took place in July 2013 Moore was replaced by Alex Gibney, winner of the best documentary Oscar in 2007 for Taxi to the Dark Side.

The only thing that will get their attention is when people who disagree with the Hollywood political positions stop paying for their products.

Moore had the temerity to mock Hussein the other day.

It seems that retribution was not long in coming.

Nope.

He's just no longer "bankable." No mon, no fun. Don' matter what you already done.

Exactly. Last year I paid to see Dinesh D'Souza's "2016: Obama's America". Prior to that the last time I paid to see a movie at a theater was in 1996 when I saw "Twister".

I do my best to not support Hollywood and/or the liberal freaks who work there.

Doesn’t matter. I personally have dealings with TWO who sit at that board in the Docs and they have it stacked with more lefties you can count. They will still lean libtard. That’s why I work in this town to find out who the enemies are..

I understand but there really ARE a few real conservatives who do make pix that originate there and I always try to support them. But consider, would you go see a movie directed and produced by an ultra liberal but written by a FREEPER? If our own Travis McGee's books were made into movies would you go see them? I have a selfish motivation too. I'm a screenwriter and I have a Hollywood agent (who is himself a Christian, conservative and a 'Nam vet) and I have properties in front of Speilbergs DREAMWORKS. Also other places. I had a script that was selected to be purchased by NCIS but then Ziva quit and that killed it.

If you have cable or satellite TV, you're directly supporting hollywood and the liberal freaks who work there.

Didn’t Moore’s wife dump him recently, too?
Not a good year for the obese hypocrite.

I said I do my best, that was in my previous comment. That means I do not go to the theaters, which I believe was also in my previous comment.

Ticket sales drives additional ticket sales which makes movies and those who act in them a success. I do not contribute to that.

Who knows what internal politics aligned to oust Michael Moore from his seat on the Academy's documentary board? His sloppy appearance and obnoxious public rants did make 'Hollywood' look bad, even if the majority of board members were in agreement with Moores political positions. His removal is a positive sign but hardly heralds some Great Awakening in la-la land. 'Hollywood' has always been liberal and I seriously doubt that will change. Yes, there are conservatives in the entertainment business but they are a distinct minority and many keep their political convictions 'private' making their influence on the business next to invisible. Still, we'll take a positive where we can find it and the obese and ungracious Michael Moore being removed from a prestigious Tinseltown position is cause for a minor cheer.

This happened back in July of this year, so unless Obama is also clairvoyant, Moore did himself in without any “help.”

Sorry to hear about that getting dropped. I need to get on the writing horse after way too many times of falling off.

They are slow learners of democracy at the box office.
White House Down didn’t even do well at my local megaplex, whose customers are 98% Black. Hollyweird repeatedly takes the money they make on family friendly, gun friendly movies and puts that money on propaganda losers.

The last movie I paid to see was in 1970. I saw the writing on the wall very early.

I listened to Joe McCarthy and also listened to the silence, ( refusal to answer any questions ), of the Hollywood crowd when he questioned them.

Except that McCarthy never questioned any of the Hollywood witnesses. That was done by the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947, and McCarthy, you may remember, was elected senator that same year. His best-known investigations concerned the army.

Fly him over Damascus in a B-2 and push him out the door.
Moore can make a big impact on mid-east politics and
comrade obama can make good on his retaliation threats.

Since we don’t shoot liberals, who hate America, we refuse to spend our money on them or their products.

We are in the process of replacing our Capitol One cards, and that will be done this week. We have cleared our accounts of the points, and we will be getting a check soon.

My main charge card has been Cabela’s and will continue to be. The Capitol One has been my wife’s main card, and my secondary card. A.H. Baldwin’s ads are too much to take.
