“Hollywood revives McCarthyist climate “ [Daypop Top 40]

The article is, of course, correct. Hollywood is made up of millions of people and it is ludicrous to act like it speaks with one voice. Only one of its voices is being answered by hate mail and death threats. That is the liberal one. As Mike Farrrel said it is the access to the media that causes actors to be reviled. The intimidation of them serves to intimidate quite a lot of others who might share similar views. If Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon can be so publically attacked, what about Joe Blow working as a middle manager. Just as the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities the abuse of used well known people to intimidate the average person, so to are the attacks today being used. I do not think it will work.
