‘Not quite a blacklist, but a graylist’: Andrew Klavan on conservative Christians in Hollywood

Andrew Klavan joined Glenn Beck in the studio today to discuss, among other topics, what it’s like to be a conservative Christian in today’s stolidly liberal Hollywood.

“It’s virtually impossible,” explained Klavan. “I mean, it got harder and harder and harder, the more I ‘came out’, the more difficult it got, the more I’d get people talking to me because they like my work — and then balking because they saw who I was. It’s very difficult … you know, it’s funny, it is a ‘graylist.’ There’s no question about it, it’s not quite a blacklist, but it is a graylist. It makes it so much harder — and it’s so hard already.”

Glenn wondered how the Hollywood set, many of whom have had to overcome their own struggles against some kind of discrimination or bias, fail to see that they are treating others the same way. “Is it vindictiveness? Is it blindness? What is it?” asked Glenn.

“Oh, I think it’s definitely blindness. They call it a bubble, but it really is an iron lung,” joked Klavan. “I mean, it’s an incredibly solid block.”

Andrew Klavan is the author of several internationally bestselling novels including True Crime, filmed by Clint Eastwood, Don’t Say A Word, and Empire of Lies. He hosts a popular conservative podcast and Youtube show on The Daily Wire and is known for his “political satire, cultural commentary, and relentless mockery of modern absurdities.”

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
