Tinseltown Travelogue is a three-part series exploring Hollywood’s stunning hypocrisy and institutionalized bigotry..
Wherever you place yourself along the “Well, I’m definitely NOT Liberal” spectrum – Right-wing… Republican… Conservative… Libertarian … etc; if you are not Far Left Liberal then Hollywood Hates You.
This three-part series Tinseltown Travelogue outlines the specifics in detail. BE WARNED… the language is a bit “salty” at times. You may think twice or three times before you innocently say “let’s go to a movie.”
Normally, I would say “enjoy” but I’m not sure “enjoy” is the proper word…

Tinseltown Travelogue is a three-part series exploring Hollywood’s stunning hypocrisy and institutionalized bigotry. This story, months in the making, comes on the heels of the explosive New York Times exposé of alleged sexual misconduct over decades by Tinseltown’s most celebrated producer, Harvey Weinstein, and further unmasks an industry in the midst of an ethical unraveling.
Instead of confronting Hollywood’s biggest “open secret” of systemic moral decay, Tinseltown’s elite have chosen to exhibit disdain for everyday Americans through brutal mockery and relentless attacks on their beliefs. Wrapped in scandal and historic box office lows, something brand new is happening to Hollywood…it appears Americans have had enough. This is a Tinseltown intervention.
DEAR RIGHT WINGERS,
WE HATE YOU.
“Republican in the dictionary comes just after ‘reptile’ and just before ‘repugnant.’” – Julia Roberts, at a 2000 Gore for President fundraiser, organized by Harvey Weinstein
I’ve always known Hollywood despises conservatives. It’s hardly a secret. Lena Dunham, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Madonna, Whoopie, Stephen Colbert, Robert De Niro, Judd Apatow, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Reiner. The list is a who’s who of pop culture… and endlessly growing. But I recently sensed a major shift in Tinseltown, and started making some phone calls to see if I was right. “It’s never been worse than it is now,” said a Hollywood veteran who asked not to be named.
And why the anonymity? “The big mouths” – major Tinseltown producers are telling studios and networks not to work with anyone associated with Trump.
NOTE: “Trump” is simply a collective noun for “all those deplorables out there”.
Welcome to the new #war on the right – Hollywood style.
Listen to the audio version of this article. Some strong language.
People like me are foreigners in La La Land. The most unhinged voices in this liberal colony think we’re the worst scum imaginable – an idiotic, deplorable, irredeemable, unwashed clan they call right-wingers. Thankfully, many of us could give two fucks what they think. Andrew Breitbart warned of how much we were hated in this town, and set up Big Hollywood to even the playing field. And as the New York Times puts it – we’ve been “perfecting the art” of weaponizing their own words against them ever since.
The deplorable bunch in Hollywood is bigger in number than many think, but bullying tactics and blacklist fears have kept most in the closet. As a result, conservatives in Filmville seem as uncommon as a George Clooney hit movie…rarer than an unpilfered joke in Amy Schumer’s standup set. And believe it or not, in some Hollywood circles, being a conservative is more toxic than a grown man spooning in bed with other people’s kids.
If you think I’m exaggerating, you don’t know this town.
Growing up in its shadow, I’ve been in and around the Hollywood swamp for decades. At times I’ve flirted with Tinseltown – if you count dancing on American Bandstand, writing some unfunny jokes for Sarah Silverman and Tracey Morgan, producing a Questlove documentary, and hiring a shit ton of celebs to hype projects. But I’ve mostly made my bones in the art, fashion, and music scene. Nevertheless, success in its sister industries makes rubbing elbows with Hollywood’s elite inevitable.
