Why Hollywood is So Liberal

 From The Daily Wire:

On the June 17 episode of “Breaking Points” podcast, hosts Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti asked Joe Rogan to explain why the entertainment industry is almost uniformly liberal. The famously forthcoming MMA commentator stayed true to form and pulled no punches in his answer.

Calling such conversations “incredibly disingenuous,” Rogan, the world’s highest-paid podcaster thanks to a $100 million deal with Spotify, described the social discussions going on in Hollywood. “It all comes down to young, hungry actors saying whatever they believe casting directors are going to want to hear to land the job,” he said.

Expanding on that point, Rogan explained that people generally come to Hollywood to pursue an acting dream. Then, when they hear politics being discussed in a left-wing manner, they parrot what casting directors are saying. “You see people bend to whichever way the wind is blowing. It’s like, ‘What do I have to say?’ And you see the disingenuousness.”

While acknowledging that a few celebrities do have deeply held political convictions, Rogan contended that most don’t. “They don’t have opinions,” he argued. “What they have is a conglomeration of opinions that they’ve adopted because they think it will be beneficial for their career.” (Read more.)
