I see more Hollywood types coming out of the closet for conservative values lately. I'm not going to scribble a litany here. Or name names and blacklist them. It is what it is.
And just as I post this here at Velociworld because I do not dare impugn myself on Facebook, it is both heartening, and a bit of a joke.
Being a Hollywood conservative is the new queer, however. The outre position. I'm not even sure half of these people know who Russell Kirk is, but, like Lenin, I'll take me a useful idiot. The important thing is, sucking another man's cock in Hollywood is a rather blase endeavor these days. That's a 100 year old tic. Quoting Friedrich Hayek, however, makes you an exotic beast. And we all know the exotic beast wins the game in that town.
It's beyond Method, or the Strasberg School. I am so far outside the fucking box you can't even deal with it, man! Even Dennis Hopper went conservative before he died. Why? Because that was stickin' it to the fuckin' man, asshole! And we should all want to stick it to the Man. I stick it to the Man. Do you?
A long way to go, to be sure. But I like the odds.
