Have you found out that a actor/muscian you like is a wingnut?

My wife found this out in rather a harsh way. Her now ex-friend sent her a link to Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda)twitter account and he is rather a fire breathing wingnut.

Her ex-friend did it because she is convienced my wife "brainwashed" her parents into voting Obama.

Her friends parents concider themselves republicans without a party. They believe in a smaller federal government. They believe people should be helpped by state government and not a federal government.

They told my wife this election --after the second debate-- they never thought their party was completely ran by wingnuts and they actually used the term wingnuts. They actually felt like their party abandon them.

Anyways my wife doesn't believe an actor's roles but she honestly believe that most actors take a role because a part of the role speaks to the actor.

Now she has been a fan of Bruce Campbell/Sam Raimi Evil Dead series. She have both Xena and Hercules on DVD the FIRST set with the special features anyways she loved the wit and tongue and check of both series.

She just can't believe this man is This much of a wingnut.

Look at post around election time especially the Have nots and Haves.

150. John Malkovich is right-wing, too, and a big death penalty supporter, for some reason.

Maybe being in the Steppenwolf Company does something really weird to an actor's head.

4. I found that out right here on DU when I posted a picture of Sorbo. I thought, MN, probably lefty.

State with Paul Wellstone and now Al Franken. Ventura, yeah, but. Was I embarrassed. No interest in seeing him again.

Like the guy in the sitcom who played a part so zany and sweet, arrested for abusing his girlfriend. A guy with martial arts training, who knew better than to use it like that. He's still in films, but it took a while for him to rehabilitate himself in the public eye.

99. Andrew Sullivan said conservative in the UK is totally different. It's only in the US where they're

wacko. Conservatives are fiscally conservative, but there are over 20 gay conservatives in the UK parliament, for example. So I'd say Oldman is not quite the same thing as the US version of Republican.

I know Adam best from "Independence Day" - he was the military liaison at Area 51.

Karl Urban's first role in Xena was the brother of Issac and trying to confince his father to sacrifice him. Then, he played Eros, and finally Ceasar!

I still watch "Xena" from start to almost end every now and again. I can't watch the last episode. I have only seen it once and refuse to watch it again. LOL.

22. I judge artists by their art, not their politics. . .

and see their politics through a prism devoid of their art. For this reason, I can enjoy the poetry of Ezra Pound and the novels of Louis Ferdinand Celine, while holding the works of Dalton Trumbo and Bertolt Brecht in equal esteem. I can also denounce Pound and Celine for their adherence to fascism, while praising the good fights of Trumbo and Brecht. Here's the dichotomy in action: I named my son Dalton, yet encourage him to read Pound's Cantos.


A gift of beauty from a sometimes ugly man. . .


THE LAKE ISLE
Ezra Pound

O God, O Venus, O Mercury, patron of thieves,
Give me in due time, I beseech you, a little tobacco-shop,
With the little bright boxes
piled up neatly upon the shelves
And the loose fragrant cavendish
and the shag,
And the bright Virginia
loose under the bright glass cases,
And a pair of scales not too greasy,
And the whores dropping in for a word or two in passing,
For a flip word, and to tidy their hair a bit.

O God, O Venus, O Mercury, patron of thieves,

32. "I judge artists by their art, not their politics. . ."

Great quote, I plan to remember it, and use it in the future.

I judge artists on how well they do their jobs, and does their work entertain or enlighten me.

And I realize that many wealthy people are Republicans.

62. Wagner was a mad genius.

I am of almost exclusively German ancestry and Wagner's music never fails to stir my German soul. He was a vicious anti-Semite, to be sure, but he demanded that the Jewish conductor Hermann Levi debut his ultra-Christian "Parsifal."

Mad as a hatter but a towering genius.

85. Steinman didn't write all of Meatloaf's music

Steinman wrote the all the first two Bat out of Hell albums and some of the songs on the third. But there are other albums that had nothing to do with Steinman, granted most of them weren't great either musically or financially.

Steinman's work for other singers hasn't done all that well most of the time with a few notable exceptions. But together I think they work well. Steinman's work is so over the top and theatrical that it needs a singer who tries to bring the same approach to the song if that makes sense.

I know a lot of people mocked his song at the Romney rally, but he's always poured it out like that in concert. I remember seeing Meatloaf and Cyndi Lauper in concert. They had very contrasting styles, but the audience loved both.

Steinman is a weird guy though. Who plays the piano wearing leather gloves?

She's spoiled beyond words, with a husband who does everything but wipe her ass for her. Drives a huge gas-guzzling pickup, the whole bit.

She retweeted some Repuke hate on Twitter, then started whining when people tweeted hate back to her. This one is a classic, playing the "I'm a mommy, don't be mean to me" card. Somebody tweeted, "Hey Sabrina, fuck you," and she replied:

>>During the 1960s and 1970s, Moore could have been described more as a liberal or moderate liberal. However, during a 2011 interview with former castmate Ed Asner on the O'Reilly Factor, Asner stated that Moore "has become much more conservative of late." In fact, Bill O'Reilly admits that Moore had been a major viewer of his show, which describes how her political views had leaned towards the right in recent years. In a Parade article dated March 22, 2009, Moore identified herself as a "libertarian centrist", but does admit to frequently watching Fox News. "...when one looks at what's happened to television, there are so few shows that interest me. I do watch a lot of Fox News. I like Charles Krauthammer and Bill O'Reilly...If McCain had asked me to campaign for him, I would have."<<

So, maybe she considers herself an independent, but if she supported McCain/Palin, I'm not sure.

107. The Clint Eastwood stunt was stunningly off-kilter & weird

and I thought it was frankly "beneath" him to put his PR eggs into
the Rmoney/RAyan basket of poo, and to it so publicly.

116. Just heard a movie audience HISS when Clint Eastwood came on screen.

The AFI Silver Theatre in the D.C. area shows a promotional sequence at the start of each film in which Clint Eastwood, Michael Moore, and various others comment on the AFI and specifically the Silver Theatre. In the last audience I was part of, there was a smattering of applause for Michael Moore's appearance and quite vehement hissing at Clint Eastwood's.

108. Just Joe Perry and most of the 2004 Red Sox

I read that Gabe Kapler was the only Player to vote for Kerry. Although many of them were foreign.

Some people posted in this thread are just claimed to be conservative by evidence-free websites (like Sarah Michelle Gellar).

122. You probably don't want to look too closely at your favorite pro athletes' politics

... to make a gross generalization, many athletes seem to lean right.

I think the attitude is "I made a success of myself due to my hard work and anyone else can, too"

114. KERRY KING of SLAYER is conservative.

 

In fact... a listener to RUSH along with Jeff Hanneman

ORTEZA: You don't agree with those who say a flat tax demonstrates an unwillingness on the part of the well off to help the less well off?
KING: That's bullshit. I mean, Rush said it best: "Penalizing the achievers." Why should I get penalized for learning how to make money? I didn't have all the opportunities. I didn't have scholarships. But you don't hear me bitching about fucking having to sit in the gutter. I got off my ass and did something with my life. That's what being an American is about, not sitting on your ass and letting the rich people pay for you. It's about getting off your ass and accomplishing things.


ORTEZA: Does the whole band tune in to Limbaugh?
KING: Jeff and I do a lot. I don't get to much anymore because I've been touring. I watch him in California a lot. In Arizona he's on late at night, and I always forget he's on. But Jeff and I always watch him in California.


Kinda a disappointment. I mean Kerry King is Gods' gift to 6 strings and digital amplification.

118. I am happy to say that there is not one person on that list that I care at all about..

not one. Never a fan of any of them. Been around Clint Eastwood.. what a miserable person he his, so it was no shock.

Glad that all of the people I like are democrats.

143. Same here. I find that most people I like just aren't republican.

Might be a coincidence or it might be that I have a natural aversion toward republicans regardless of their profession.

119. Clint Eastwood--but it seemed he was worse for Romney

I still like Clint's western movies--especially The Outlaw Josey Wales because of it's use of Native American actors.

I was disappointed to hear he was going to do the RNC but after watching it and laughing hysterically at how bad he did, I felt sorry for old Clint and thought he did more damage to Romney than anything else.

120. I don't care about an artist's politics.

I will listen or watch an artist because I admire their work. I couldn't care less about their politics. Although John Wayne is an exception. I refuse to watch his movies since I found out that he testified against some of his colleagues in the 50s during the McCarthy witch hunt.

121. I've never stopped watching or listening to an artist because of their politics but

After what Ted Nugget said after the election does it. I will not listen to his music anymore. Also, I use to watch The Middle with Patricia Heaton before what she said about Sandra Fluke. Not anymore. It's one thing to have a different point of view on politics but to talk about people the way these right wingers do is unacceptable.

136. I'd heard (Yrs ago) that Sorbo left Hercules because he was up with the hints of lesbianism

on the Xena series. I never understood why he'd quit a good gig because of whats going on with another show.


His career became gigs on SYFY channel type movies after that.

137. Jerry Doyle and supposedly Bruce Boxleitner,

both of Babylon 5 fame

However, the only GOP actor I won't watch is Reagan. For the rest, if I know they're good actors, I still watch. Why? Because unless they're playing themselves in a biographical film, they aren't the character they're playing in everything else

I would have no friends left and I would be listening only to Roger Waters.

It would be boring.

He is from Georgia/Indiana and went to school in Tennessee. I don't really care if he's a republican as long as he throws touchdowns.

158. I knew Sorbo's parents (he's from the town where I spent my teenage years), and they

never struck me as being wingnuts. I never knew him, because he was much younger, but his father was my eighth grade science teacher and was quite a good teacher.

159. Nobody really but I have a funny story about Carroll O'Connor

A person from High School posted an Archie Bunker clip talking about liberals. I told them that Archie Bunker was a character but the show was actually making fun of bigots and conservatives by showing Archie as extreme, I said Google "Carroll O'Connor was actually a liberal". That clip went down faster than Mitt Romney's likes post election.

162. Aaron Lewis from Staind

I love most of his music. But he seems to have a tea bagger side which even comes out in his music some.

Now, two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel
One is the colors that fly high and proud - the red, the white, the blue
The other one's got a rattlesnake with a simple statement made
"Don't Tread On Me" is what is says and I'll take that to my grave

Because... this is me
I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs
And I've said it before but I'll say it again
Cause I've never needed government to hold my hand
And I've said it before but I'll say it again
Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land
And a country boy is all I'll ever be
