For John, BLUFIt is going to take a while to get over the election of 2016.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I blame Mr Stephen Greene, writing at the InstaPundit, for introducing this term, Gleichschaltung, (pronounced ˈɡlīkˌSHalto͝oNG), into this discussion, but it is so apropos, as would be the term, "the new Blacklist" or the term "the new McCartyism, but it is more so, since it seeks to change a culture.

From Wikipedia:

In Nazi terminology, Gleichschaltung (German pronunciation: [ˈɡlaɪçʃaltʊŋ]), was the process of Nazification by which Nazi Germany successively established a system of totalitarian control and coordination over all aspects of society, "from the economy and trade associations to the media, culture and education".
So, we have, from Hollywood in Toto:

An unexpected confession from HBO's 'Silicon Valley' reveals how Hollywood discriminates against conservatives.

There are plenty of reasons people don’t get parts in Hollywood.

They’re not tall enough. They don’t fit the character in question’s physical profile.  They arrive with a lousy reputation.

The casting director had a bad day, perhaps?

Here’s a new one:  They want the current president to Make America Great Again.  Trump supporters in Hollywood might find work even harder to come by since Jan. 20, according to a revelation by comic actor Jimmy Yang.

And, there is a reference to an article by Reporter Stephen Galloway, on 20 May 2017, in The Hollywood Reporter:

Yes, I have seen this sort of thing.  You are a "non-perso" if you do not denounce and renounce Donald J Trump.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
