Well that abortion of intellect called Atlas Shrugged got two films, so sure, there are morons in Hollywood, too.

Netflix employees gave 98% to Dems and gave the Obamas a bunch of money to create content.  And they run Kaepernick's show

I'm more and more understanding all the ol foggies who used to talk about how tv will not your brain.

Best thing we could do as a society is dump tvs all together.

Most of the money people are conservative. Most of the people who do the work are not.

Well, they have to do something to distract the public from their kowtowing to the Chinese.

Look.
I don't shop at Hobby Lobby.
I don't buy Papa Johns.
I don't eat at Chik A Fil .
I give and help out multiple charities, but I can only be on so many juries and I'm really liking the Hawkeye series.

Employees, yeah.  Employees everywhere in entertainment trend democratic.
Netflix itself still lost money in order to produce Dave Chapelle's Transphobia Hour.
Employees were mad as shiat about it but the company said STFU we did it anyway.

This is disturbing. I know billionaire people tend to be phony pieces of shiat who care about profits over people but I was sure billionaire companies were totally altruistic and philanthropic!

They were idiots.  A TV is just a device.  There's a vast array of content that it can display.  "TV" is just like the internet, and just like books.  A lot of the content is shiat and there's also a lot of amazing content.
 
2021-12-02 5:35:07 PM  
Uh, $150K?

That's several plates to eat with Hillary Clinton and pals one night in Hollywood.

Talk shiat about wokeness, say you'll legalize pot and you'll get HBO air time with Bill Maher, and maybe some cash from his couch, no matter what your political party animal is.

/rich red stuck in California? Don't worry, you can eat rich people food plates with Republicans making a missionary money trip at the Mission Inn in Riverside.

//one of the world's most powerful vampires in Vampire the Masquerade lore used the Mission Inn as a lair, btw, found that ironic as Dubya used it as a financial pit stop for years when meeting with the Hollywood Friends of Abe and such

So you're telling me that everything Hollywood tells me is a lie, and that I shouldn't believe any of it.

That's actually kinda' hot, because I would love nothing more than to believe that there isn't a seekreit cabal of elitists & power-hungry assholes who happen to be mutants who have been in a silent war, while the rest of us plebes go on about our lives none the wiser until tragedy strikes & then we blame everything & everyone on the government, and then apocalypse.

Listen. It's not our fault you're wearing leotards, and I'm sorry you had to go through that whole '90's scene with the neon colors (you weren't the only one), but can we chill with the whole universal domination thingy?

How about pizza? Let's go get some pizza.

Or you can just spend money how you like, and it's OK to not like giving your money to people who are going to funnel it to the racist pricks constantly shiatting on everything around them.

Just because actors trend liberal doesn't mean that the producers and executives do. Same goes for the "liberal" news networks. It's all magats behind the scenes.

Kaepernick, really? No one except Republicans gives a single shiat about him anymore. Get with the times, grandpa.

For those that didn't bother to look at the thread, the rationale is that all these studios donate to their trade association. The trade Association donated $150,000 to the conservative organization that puts on CPAC.
