(FiveNation.com)- You wouldn’t be blamed for assuming that everyone in Hollywood at this point is woke, but it turns out that there are a few executives left in the movie industry who see the threat posed to the United States by socialists and communists, including the Chinese Communist Party.
During an interview with The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” show, Hollywood film producer and executive Chris Fenton described how free market capitalism in the United States is under siege by the Chinese communists.
In the interview, which you can watch here, he said that the United States needs to learn how to make capitalism come after patriotic duties, with capitalism only able to thrive when there is a strong nation that serves as its foundation.
He added that if the U.S. allows the nation to continue to deteriorate, then capitalism in the United States will start to look a lot like the pseudo capitalism of the Chinese Communist Party.
It’s interesting that a Hollywood executive has this to say, given how huge China’s influence is on the movie industry these days. According to the Epoch Times, China’s market made up between 60 and 90 percent of Hollywood’s box office before 2019. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, that seems to have dropped – with the figure now sitting at around 16%.
Perhaps if China’s influence over Hollywood dwindles, more Hollywood executives will be willing to speak out…
Fenton described how China’s influence over the United States was on full display after its retaliation to the NBA, when Houston Rockets Manager Daryl Morey came out in support of the pro-freedom demonstrators in Hong Kong. In response, Chinese companies cut all ties with the NBA and some major players even came out in support of China to mitigate those losses.
