Ecco perché Hollywood sostiene Hillary Clinton

Leggo su Variety un’intervista ad Antonio Sabato Jr. del 3 agosto:

Antonio Sabato Jr. Says Hollywood is Blacklisting Him for Supporting Donald Trump

«Antonio Sabato Jr.: I think this country allows you freedom of speech. Anybody should be allowed to say whatever they want. When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before…

…I was never a politician. I care about my country. I put God first. For the last seven-and-a-half years, I’ve seen this country led by a leader that’s made mistakes. I spoke my mind about it. But because I’m in the industry, you can’t talk about that. The media and the liberals act the way they act: The will back up the president until the end. It’s been interesting. I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair. It’s just like Communism [il neretto è mio]…

The reality is if you’re associated with the Republican Party, the casting directors and producers already blacklist you based on that [il neretto è mio]…

…Hollywood is very liberal, but they contradict themselves all the time. They don’t want the war, but they’ll have a president who voted for the war. Hollywood wants to help the entire world. They do the opposite— government under the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing. I choose Trump. I support everything he’s going to do. A lot of people in America feel the same way…

…I’m just speaking the truth — people don’t know how this business works. I feel strongly about the fact that Donald Trump is going to win. I think he’ll be elected in November.»

Qui c’è la lista degli attori che sostengono Hillary Clinton, c’è praticamente tutta Hollywood:

Del resto, è già accaduto, come accenna Antonio Sabato Jr., all’epoca del maccartismo:

Insomma, è come in quel film con Woody Allen e Zero Mostel, Il prestanome (The Front) di Martin Ritt.

La storia si ripete, tristemente.
