Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 13, 2019

Always a favorite with the public, Robinson never gave a bad performance. At this time he was struggling under what has been called the Hollywood graylist. Cleared of Communist connections, Robinson was still given grief for having been a vocal anti-Nazi, for not kowtowing under pressure, and for simply being liberal.

The bigots behind the Red Scare were also known to single out Jews. Lesser actors with suspect political associations were simply blacklisted from the industry. In a couple of cases their names were even removed from film credits. A star like Robinson was too big to be banned outright, but the really desirable roles dried up overnight.

Today the bigots single out anyone who doesn't support their Dear Leader Trump and his, "good people on both sides".
