Hollywood actors’ opposing views on being vocal Trump supporters sparks timely debate

While actress Kirstie Alley says that MAGA fans should keep their Trump support under wraps to avoid bullying from the left, Justified actor Nick Searcy recommends a more aggressive approach.

Alley took to Twitter on September 2 to recommend Trump voters keep mum to avoid being an economic casualty of the cancel culture imposed by unhinged leftists and related members of the PC police.

“I’ve been a Hollywood actress for 40 years and never seen the kind of hatred I’m seeing. I understand people hate political opponents but hatred towards PEOPLE who DON’T hate that opponent is historical. They’re busy CANCELING livelihoods. Stay silent Trumpers, is my advice.”

In response to the Cheers star, Searcy, one of the few performers in the entertainment space that publicly admits to being a conservative, recommends that Trump supporters instead should stand up to far-left bullies.

“Do not be silent. Laugh in their faces and be proud of who you are and what you believe. Bullies never stop. They have to BE stopped,” Searcy wrote on Twitter.

Searcy also issued a separate tweet expressing similar sentiments.

Apart from the effect on one’s career and livelihood, in today’s polarized climate, however, it can be physically risky to merely place a Trump-Pence sign outside a residence or ride around with a Trump bumper sticker, let alone wear a MAGA hat in public, however.

Alley and Searcy could both be correct, depending upon the specific circumstances that individuals find themselves in.

Kirstie Alley, who says she is still involved in Scientology, recently sat down for a remote interview with Adam Corolla in which she otherwise came across as a very down-to-earth person despite her Hollywood background. She remarked that she’s always been a Democrat but the anti-free speech, socialist cohort that has taken control of the party has changed things entirely.

Hollywood movers and shakers have repeatedly condemned the 1950s blacklist, and produced numerous movies about that period. They nonetheless have aggressively engaged in the blacklisting of their own when it comes to the way they treat non-liberals in the entertainment industry.

The tweets from the two acting veterans with opposing recommendations prompted a substantial response on Twitter. Here is just a sample:
