It seems that viewpoint discrimination is all the rage in the era of Donald Trump. On Tuesday, Infowars Editor-in-Chief Paul Joseph Watson posted a video in which he interviewed Lukasz Dusza, a 17-year-old aspiring actor who said he was fired from the agency representing him over his “polarizing” conservative views.
According to Dusza, he was given an opportunity to work with an unnamed agency that represents entertainment industry talent about 18 months ago. He further said that “during this time, [he] developed a presence on social media” where he began sharing his political views.
Specifically, he said, the agency did not like a photo he had on Facebook, which was a photo of President Trump captioned, “My president.”
Last week, he said, he received an email informing him that his contract had been terminated due to his “polarizing views.”
“It’s important to remember that ‘polarizing’ to the left is anything factual that they can’t agree with,” he said.
He also told Watson that the agency said a few months ago they might keep him on board if he removed his post supporting President Trump.
Dusza said that this would not have happened if he had encouraged blowing up the White House the way Madonna did shortly after Trump’s inauguration. And, he added, it wouldn’t have happened if he supported taking a knee for the national anthem.
“It definitely wouldn’t have happened if I had been making threats like we see many leftists do on social media towards our president,” he added.
As a result, he said the agency told him they don’t appreciate his views and have no place for him.
Dusza said that after getting input from friends, he would probably not sue the agency, but would simply move on.
Here’s the interview:
Dusza told Watson that he knew going in that Hollywood is primarily liberal and that conservatives are viewed as racist and sexist.
Meanwhile, the Gateway Pundit said, so many in Hollywood have turned a blind eye “to Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse of countless high profile women.”
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what one would expect:
The liberal Hollywood elite are complete hypocrites. Sorry this happened, but you will be better in the long run.

Supported weed "Yay!". Supported gay marriage "Yay!" Supported a border policy, the right to have a gun and prefer nationalism to globalism? "Crazy conservative bastard! Evil! Evil! Kill it!"

Liberals only want other Liberals that will prostitute themselves for fame

It certainly seems that way.
But Dusza says he’s not giving up. In fact, he said, the controversy has empowered him to continue in his chosen line of work.
“I’m going to support my president, I’m going to be proud of my country, and I’m going to be proud of my flag and I’m going to be proud of everything American,” he said. “I’m not going to hide that.”
