Alec Baldwin Calls Hollywood’s Conservative Blacklist ‘Unfortunate’

Actor quasi-acknowledges truth, can't drum up outrage over Tinsel Town bigotry

Hollywood’s biggest open secret used to be Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior.

Now, the mega-producer is behind bars, and starlets needn’t fear his advances. 

The industry’s other open secret continues, and there’s little outrage about it. Hollywood discriminates against conservatives. Call it the Blacklist 2.0.

ANDREW KLAVAN: How Hollywood Blacklists Conservatives

It’s no longer open to debate. The signs are everywhere, from the late-night landscape that ignored conservative USA until Fox News’ “Gutfeld!” crashed the party to Friends of Abe’s very existence.

What’s that?

It’s a conservative group of Hollywood artists who met to bond, network and share the discrimination they faced within their own industry.

In quiet, of course, for fear of professional reprisals.

Now, Alec Baldwin is weighing in on his industry’s unofficial blacklist. The 64-year-old star vented on several hot-button issues via his Instagram account this week.

He recalled fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Rob Schneider’s blistering critique of the show’s recent hard-Left turn, suggesting you shouldn’t slam a show that hired you in the first place. That conversation inspired Baldwin to explore what it means to be right-of-center in his industry.

Schneider admitted during his chat with Glenn Beck that he now considers himself a Republican given the Left’s anti-free speech platform.

Hollywood conservatives “have their own little club,” Baldwin said, possibly alluding to Friends of Abe which may or may not still exist. The Trump era caused friction within its ranks.


Baldwin added conservative artists bond over the sense they’re “treated unfairly” by their peers.

The meandering video finds Baldwin suggesting studios will hire anyone of any background or belief system, even if they behaved badly off screen.

He should know.

He also pointed to what Hollywood conservatives say about the current climate.

“There’s a bias against them, and that’s unfortunate,” he said.

Any other group who made such a claim would gain instant support. You might see stars rallying to their side or protests demanding equal treatment.

Instead, the situation is “unfortunate,” said the actor, still under a legal cloud following his involvement in the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.”

Baldwin’s subsequent comments confirmed the Blacklist.

“There’s people that I know, and I won’t name them [emphasis added], who are conservatives, who are arch-conservatives. I enjoyed them as actors a lot,” he said.

Why won’t he name them? Hollywood liberals are loud and proud, as well they should be. It’s not a crime to be progressive. Vote GOP, though, and the situation changes dramatically in Tinsel Town.

Kudos to Baldwin for bringing the bigotry to the surface. What a shame that his efforts will end there, and none of his peers will join the fight to bring an end to the discrimination.

They haven’t up until now, so why would they suddenly defend their right-leaning peers?

UPDATE: Need even more proof of the new Blacklist? Newsweek’s story on a secret screening for “My Son Hunter” features the following revelations:

Among those attending the gathering at a private screening room in Los Angeles were Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star Dean Cain and Nick Searcy, star of TV’s Justified. Some others said they did not want their attendance revealed, fearing it might hurt their careers.

One producer at the screening, whose credits include Game of Thrones, The Bourne Legacy and Moneyball, asked that his name not be used.


  1. That may explain why I, an aspiring singer/songwriter, can’t get a recording contract. In addition to being Black but refusing to pander to the R&B market, I’m not Mister Left.

  2. Why isn’t this psychotic, morally depraved freak in jail for manslaughter?!…oh yeah, he’s a vocal democrat and the two tier justice system we have….

  3. Alec participated in the “BLACKLIST’ by ostracizing and publicly shaming HIS OWN BROTHER STEPHEN over his CHRISTIAN FAITH! HOW DO YOU WRITE THIS AND NOT KNOW THAT???? There is eve video of him mocking Stephen for his faith.

    1. Jesus was mocked while He hung on the Cross and prayed for the forgiveness of His accusers. We should show the same grace and fear of the Lord to our enemies as the One we faithfully follow.

  4. Alex needs to go to jail, the kind of jail where they want ANY kind of girlfriend . It would do him good to get screwed over the way he’s screwed other people all his life

  5. following his involvement in the *negligent* shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins

    There…fixed it for you.

  6. Alec Baldwin all of a sudden finds himself a ‘republican’ over free speech issues. I think it is an example of an ignorant Leftist showing just how ignorant he is. He picks an issue which is generically argued either way (normally incorrectly by both sides) and makes THAT his battle cry.

    Per chance, would it possibly be that he is currently in legal trouble for an accidental shooting and his ignorance allows him to believe that the ‘Kooky Conservatives’, so in love with their 2A rights will blindly defend any White guy (You know they are racists so the guy has to be White…or a woman of any color), who has been charged with a firearm offense?

    He says the oppression is ‘unfortunate’, which shows his concern for the plight of Conservatives, who he has publicly and profanely attacked while allowing him to easily swat it away for his liberal benefactors.

    Until they publicly stand up and proclaim their belief in, support for and dedication to our Lord Jesus, I don’t want any of these Leftists suggesting they are on ‘our side’. Of course, their are the devoutly religious Biden and Pelosi but we all know EVERYTHING they say are lies.

    1. Alec Baldwin has very close family members who are outspoken and faithful followers of Jesus. I’m sure they pray very fervently for his salvation and so should we.
