Non-left-leaning writers, producers, directors and “below the line” members of the creative community will slowly begin to tell “flyover country” that their values are shared - even in glitzy Los Angeles. In fact, to foreshadow its big message, Big Hollywood will be an invitation to aspiring conservatives to drop their political dreams for the grueling Hollywood grind.
Returning veterans of the current war, please move to the head of the line.
Big Hollywood also will offer politicians, think tank brains, pundits and sundry wonks the opportunity to show another face to the conservative movement and the Republican Party. No longer will “South Park” and Dennis Miller carry the load alone in pointing out the absurdities of the modern left.
On Day One, Congressman Thaddeus McCotter invokes the Beatles’ “Dear Prudence,” inviting Hollywood’s “closeted” conservatives to “come out and play.” Actor and raconteur Orson Bean remembers that the hopeful movies of his childhood during the Great Depression gave him and many other Americans the will and drive to succeed.
We need to discover that spirit again.
If conservatives don’t figure out popular culture soon, the movement will die a deserving death. If Hollywood liberals can’t learn how to play well with those with whom they disagree, Big Hollywood will have a field day at their close-minded and intolerant expense. The days of open bullying in the marketplace of ideas are nearing their end.
Consider this a warning.
Editor in Chief John Nolte is veteran of the film blog world, and a director in his own right. His love of the best of Hollywood - yes, there still is great product - will keep the readers and the writers enthusiastic about the future.
I will be writing and recruiting like the madman that I am.
Hollywood may not be completely anti-American yet, but it is certainly no longer pro-American. And no one has put up a public fight to change that.
