I found the recording of the robocall here, where you can see yet another example of today’s blacklist at work.
Even though the Norris recording is pretty tame and humorus, Film Drunk assults Norris as a “massive tool,” mocks his age, and actually takes umbrage over the use of the term “czar,” as though Norris made it up.
This attack on Right-leaning entertainment types is always the same. Label them mean or crazy, mock them as has-beens, and diminish their character and career. In many ways, it’s so much worse than the original blacklist.
“As my wife Jean and I watched the GOP debate and went to the website, we were trying to decide which of the candidates would be best to do head-to-head combat with President Obama,” says Norris in the call. “Now, I didn’t say hand-to-hand combat, even though I think they would win there too. Jean and I decided that Newt Gingrich would be the best man to beat President Obama. Under Newt’s leadership, the budget was balanced, taxes were cut, and we began to pay down our national debt. These policies helped create 11 million new jobs. As president, Gingrich will repeal Obamacare, get rid of Obama’s Czars, and use common-sense measures like building the Keystone pipeline to lower the cost of gas to two-and-a-half dollars per gallon.”
