The entire left coast is relocating to Washington DC for the inauguration of their new messiah Tuesday. AP reports that it will be a big Hollywood party — only colder.
How about the Conservatives in Hollywood? Are there any? If so, will they attend?
There is only one place to find out, Andrew Breitbart’s new website, Big Hollywood.
Breitbart, publisher of the online news aggregator Breitbart.com and one of the geniuses behind news-cycle royalty such as the Drudge Report and the Huffington Post, last week launched what he calls “a continuous politics and culture posting board for those who think something has gone drastically wrong and that Hollywood should return to its patriotic roots.”
Big Hollywood’s “modest objective” writes Breitbart in the Washington Times is “to change the entertainment industry. To make Hollywood something we can believe in – again. In order to give millions of Americans hope.”
So how is Big Hollywood doing since their launch last week? Contributor and conservative talk radio host John Ziegler and Sarah Palin hit Hollywood nerves with an exclusive interview in which Palin stated she felt exploited by SNL’s Tina Fey and Katie Couric. “You are not the center of the universe,” Palin scolded Couric.

The Hill reports that Breitbart and Big Hollywood’s Editor in Chief John Nolte have already signed on “House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Reps. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.), Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.) and Connie Mack (R-Fla.), to post entries on the site,” and “also landed former senator and GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson, MSNBC correspondent Tucker Carlson and a slew of other conservative thinkers from the National Review, The Weekly Standard and Commentary magazine to contribute.”
HUMAN EVENTS will be keeping an eye out for other conservative friends who could help Big Hollywood meet their objective. Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer recently made a small splash in their film mocking Michael Moore and the Hollywood liberal elite in “An American Carol” but what about Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall, Elizabeth Hasselback, or Tom Selleck?
Breitbart, who lives in L.A., regularly associates with conservative celebrities who are afraid to come out of their free market loving, family valued, fiscal disciplined closets.
“Yeah, I’m pissed,” Breitbart told Culture 11’s Ericka Andersen “That you can’t be conservative openly in Hollywood when they talk about tolerance and free speech…McCarythyism and blacklisting — it’s unbelievably vicious.”
We are upset too Mr. Breitbart. Good luck to you and Big Hollywood.
