    Hollywood Blacklisted R. Lee Ermey for Thought Crimes Against Barack Obama

    Actor R. Lee Ermey, who died at 74 of pneumonia Sunday morning, was Exhibit A in the New Hollywood Blacklist. After criticizing Barack Obama in 2010, Ermey’s thriving film career immediately dried up. Even after apologizing, he was ostracized, fired by GEICO insurance and never did another commercial. After disappearing completely for a few years, he managed to appear in a couple of C-grade reality shows in the last few years of his life.

    Every person on here should be furious that a man like this had his career ruined by a bunch of leftist scum for simply disagreeing with Brobama, yet every Hwood scumbag can joke about killing Trump. If your not boycotting them your doing it wrong. How many other non leftists are in Hwood? one , two ? Who will they look to for Military advice when Dale Dye is gone, Bo Bergdal? Jon Kerry?
