Hollywood is known for liberal politics, which means people with conservative views often feel the need to keep quiet.

FOX’s Michelle Pollino has part one of our series on “Conservatives in Hollywood”:

Conservatives are being targeted in what some say is a form of blacklisting happening again. The Hollywood blacklist was a 1950’s list of of writers, actors and others accused of being communist sympathizers. Studios were pressured not to hire them.

Hollywood loves this story, they’ve told it dozens of times. I spoke with three members of a conservative group of entertainment industry workers, known as the friends of Abe, as in Abe Lincoln.

The monthly meetings are a time where they feel free speak their political thoughts and ideas without fear. One member, an actor and screenwriter, wanted us to to electronically alter his voice, saying the atmosphere is:

“Toxic if you have any leaning toward Donald Trump.”
