(The Hollywood Reporter)   Hollywood Reporter apologizes for starting up the 50's era Communist blacklist that destroyed countless careers and reputations. It did give us Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," though, so it wasn't all bad   ( divider line

cryinoutloud: This is a great idea, now that everyone who had their lives ruined by it is dead.

It's ok, the real witch hunts over in the Soviet Union from the 20s through the 50s certainly have everyone dead.

B.L.Z. Bub: You have the right to believe what you want, but you do not have the right to be protected from the social consequences of having abhorrent beliefs. If we were talking about actors, screenwriters, etc., who were secretly Nazis, would you feel sorry for them being exposed as Nazis and having their careers ruined? You only feel sorry for them because either A) you sympathise with Communism, or B) they were the targets of right-wingers which you foolishly believe automatically makes them good people, or both. You should be honest and upfront about your psychology in this regard.

you mean like..Disney? The Bush family? NASA? what kinda "NAZI" we talking about here Willis?

not only do you make a weak point, you use weak examples.

the Blacklist was more about power hungry witch hunters advancing political agendas. "Communism" was a secondary concern, seeing that those that admitted membership and outed other "commies" (whether they were actual communists or not) were allowed to work. So yeah.


"here commie rat, go make some movies!"

when you guys and gals get on the fark and start yattering about ideologies and sociopolitical trends, keep in mind that 99% of it is a smoke screen for the uneducated masses.

To take your Godwinning a bit further, if we really hated the Krauts , NASA would have been built in Nuremberg as a labour camp, the Bush family would be bunkmates with Adolf Disney in Joliet and you'd be typing this out on your Xerox machine because IBM was nice enough to bring better killing through science to the Jews of Europe....

so...enjoy your history channel version of things...

rant over.
