Actor-Politician Fred Thompson Notes Being Conservative In Hollywood Is ‘A Tougher Road to Travel’

Fred Thompson, a former senator and presidential candidate who returned to an acting career,  granted an interview to The Hollywood Reporter to promote his new movie “Persecuted,” the story of a televangelist framed for murder by powerful government officials.

Thompson acknowledges that conservatives in Hollywood have “a tougher road to travel” and try not to advertise their political views:

Is it tough to be a Republican actor in Hollywood?

It’s a tough business for everybody, but if you happen to run across a particular moviemaker who’s politically oriented and your views don’t coincide, then it could be an issue. There’s no question about that. It’s a tougher road to travel. Conservatives don’t go out of their way to advertise their political views because they know they’re the distinct minority. It’s not just actors, but also behind-the-camera folks.

As the border crisis in Texas intensifies, only one network on Monday bothered to cover Governor Rick Perry sending the National Guard to the border. CBS This Morning allowed 20 seconds to the latest development. NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America avoided the story. 

This Morning co-host Charlie Rose explained, “The Republican will announce today his plan to mobilize some 1000 members of the Texas National Guard. Their mission is to beef up security.” Rose added that the move came “amid the growing problem of immigrant children crossing into the southern states.” He added, “Perry told Republicans in Iowa this weekend if the federal government won’t secure the border, Texas will.”

"All Religious Freaks Are the Same" says this LEFTIST

NY Columnist: All Religious Fanatics Are the Same

When PC won’t allow you to make honest moral judgments this is the kind of thoughtless nonsense that rolls off your lips. 

 Astonishing that the most prestigious paper in the world gives so much space to so many “not bright” people.
