Liberals are desperate to maintain their cultural monopoly.
That’s why right-wing entertainment is so viciously attacked.
And the left is attempting to bury reviews for one conservative movie.
It’s difficult to get any movie made, but it’s twice as difficult to get a conservative movie made.
The pro-life film Unplanned, which tells the story of former Planned Parenthood employee turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson, couldn’t find a lead actress until days before shooting because every manager in Hollywood advised their client not to take the role.
It would’ve been nearly impossible for a young actress to have a mainstream Hollywood career after starring in a pro-life film.
That’s how left-wing Hollywood has become.
So it’s no wonder why the film My Son Hunter has become so problematic for the left.
Despite its limited online release, the film has been pilloried by liberal critics.
However, the left doesn’t want people to see that it has an audience score of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“My Son Hunter has hit a 90 percent positive audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, signaling an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences even as left-wing film critics continue to trash the movie. Rotten Tomatoes said My Son Hunter has received an average audience score of 4.4 stars out of 5 from more than 250 audience reviews so far. The reaction has surpassed those of many current studio releases, including Disney’s direct-to-streaming Pinocchio, starring Tom Hanks, which has an audience score of 33 percent (2.3 out of five average rating); and Thor: Love and Thunder, which has an audience score of 77 percent (four out five).”
Audiences are responding to the movie even if liberal gatekeepers are not.
In fact, the movie had to be screened in secret.
Newsweek reported that “some of Hollywood’s politically conservative insiders — a small group in famously liberal Tinseltown — gathered Wednesday for a secretive invitation-only screening of My Son Hunter…Among those attending the gathering at a private screening room in Los Angeles were Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star Dean Cain and Nick Searcy, star of TV’s Justified. Some others said they did not want their attendance revealed, fearing it might hurt their careers. The secrecy underlined what right-wingers say is an atmosphere of fear over expressing conservative views in Hollywood.”
Gina Carano, one of the stars of the film, was fired from Disney’s The Mandalorian for expressing conservative views.
Soon after her “cancellation,” Carano sat for an interview with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro and explained the pall of silence that hangs over Hollywood.
Carano explained, “I would go to a barbecue on the beach in California and all these people are [whispering], ‘Hey, we agree with you. It’s messed up, isn’t it?’ And I’m like, ‘This is your house. Why are you whispering? … That’s insane to me.”
That sums up Hollywood in a nutshell.
Conservatives have to shut up in order to ensure that they keep working.
The problem will only get fixed if there are more outlets to tell stories.
