Breitbart takes on the leftist culture of Hollywood

Andrew Breitbart, whose internet credits include the Drudge Report and the Breitbart.com news service, launched a new group blog today called Big Hollywood. Here's how he introduced it in a January 5 Washington Times column (highlighting added):
A million stories to tell

On Tuesday, I launch Big Hollywood (bighollywood.breitbart.com), a big group blog that will feature hundreds of the big minds from the fields of politics, journalism, entertainment and culture.

Big Hollywood is not a "celebrity" gabfest or a gossip outpost - it is a continuous politics and culture posting board for those who think something has gone drastically wrong and that Hollywood should return to its patriotic roots.

Big Hollywood's modest objective: to change the entertainment industry. To make Hollywood something we can believe in - again. In order to give millions of Americans hope.

Until conservatives, libertarians and Republicans - who will be the lion's share of Big Hollywood's contributors - recognize that (pop) culture is the big prize and that politics is secondary, there will be no victory in this important battle.

Hollywood is no longer an American industry. And it took a prolonged war in which the studios and most of the stars didn't show up to fight for America to draw attention to this hard truth.

Hope and change we can believe in!

Breitbart makes an intriguing argument, and I think he's got a good point: once conservatives lost the culture, it became harder and harder to win elections. What do we expect, when today's youth have lived their entire lives hearing pop icons malign so much of what conservatives believe?

Conservatives need to win back the culture, and the best place to start is at the heart of the evil empire: Big Hollywood.
