Bob, of course, is predictably outraged by all this and ranted about this "injustice." You really have to listen to his voice to fully appreciate the vitriol. In case you can't listen via the link, his rant went something like this:
I want you to keep in mind, the very people, the very Hollywood leftists who would ruin the careers or blackball any of these conservative Hollywood actors who are afraid to come out of the closet, the very people who would damage their careers are also the very people who are preaching tolerance and inclusiveness. Have you noticed this? The very same people that say, 'you need to quit being so narrow minded and so bigoted and so exclusionary in your thinking, you need to be tolerant and welcoming of all different views and opinions'; the very crowd, the very tolerance police, are the ones conservative Hollywood actors are afraid of because they don't want to come out of the closet and have their careers ruined. ... I just want you to remember this the next time you hear Rosie O'Donnell or any of the rest of them from the Hollywood left preaching 'tolerance' and 'inclusiveness'. Just remember that next time you hear that.This is standard Bob Dutko. It happens every day on the show. But, there is so, so much stupid here, it's hard to sort out. Nevertheless, I'm going to give it a try.
First of all, Bob, and the Washington Times article, have provided absolutely no evidence that the reason that these actors don't want to talk about their political preferences is that they fear some sort of "blacklisting" or other negative effect on their career. There are numerous reasons why an actor, or anybody else for that matter, might not want to talk about their political preferences (e.g., they like to keep such things private, they don't want to alienate their fans, they're busy, they don't like nosy reporters, etc.). In fact, Bob listed a bunch of actors who do talk about their support for Republicans! Therefore, this doesn't appear to be a widespread problem.
Second, Bob goes on to claim that this persecution of conservatives is being done by some entity known as the "Hollywood left" which apparently includes Rosie O'Donnell. What in God's name is he talking about? Does he really believe that Rosie and a bunch of her associates are controlling the casting decisions in Hollywood? Is Bob delusional? Does he make this stuff up?
Third, Bob wants us to "remember" this outrage the next time the "Hollywood left" talks about being tolerant and inclusive. To be honest, I don't listen to a lot of lectures from actors, but I've never heard an actor even attempt to lecture me about being tolerant and inclusive. Personally, I think tolerance is a good thing. Does Bob?
Lastly, I just have to think that what Bob is doing here is attempting to develop hatred and division in general. Bob clearly wants his audience to hate and despise this phantom group he calls the "Hollywood left." It reminds me of the Orwell novel 1984, where the workers participate in a "Two Minutes Hate" every day to reinforce their loathing of the enemies of the Party.
Hopefully, Bob will turn away from these false, divisive tactics. Perhaps he'll recall James 1:19-20 which says, "wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God."
