Hollywood screenwriter fired for being a conservative

“There's no creature as intolerant as a Hollywood liberal,” contends Emmy Award winning screenwriter Robert J. Avrech. He was fired from two screenwriting jobs because of his conservative political views, he says. "Both were pay or play deals. It's a measure of how deeply the producers despised me that they chose to pay off my full salary. In effect, paying me not to write."

Avrech says an article 
 he wrote for FrontPage Magazine, "Help, I'm a Hollywood Republican," prompted lefty producers to give him the boot three years ago. Why did he risk his livelihood with his tell-all column at FrontPage?

"I was just sick and tired of limousine liberals denying the reality of the terrorist threat," he relates at his blog Seraphic Secret.  

"Sick and tired of Hollywood's obsession with so-called global warming. Sick and tired of unpatriotic, ungrateful Hollywood, acting as enablers for world-wide terrorism."

Finally, he decided he must speak out -- or "feel like a traitor," he writes.

So how come so many seemingly intelligent "Hollywood Jews" are Democrats, when it's the Republican Party that most actively supports Israel? The answer is simple, Avrech says: Intelligence doesn't necessarily translate into wisdom.
