Personal story segment tonight Tom acts as you know it was a huge superstar and people tell me is a very nice guy not arrogant not.
And entitlement guy but very quietly -- mr.
Hanks has become a left wing power player in Hollywood.
Shortly after the gay marriage vote he condemned the Mormon Church publicly.
Subsequently he apologized for that.
Last fall he ripped the Bush Administration -- usual thing in Hollywood but he's also donated big money Al Franken and other form of candidates.
Thanks ideology first came into our zone shortly after 9/11 when he criticized me.
For asking Hollywood telethon starts to become more aggressive in getting the money to 9/11 families.
I understand if you'll remember and.
It's ratings great it is really great to try to put together that -- people along with the -- gamble but I just don't live here.
You know I know sweeps for cable.
Of course mr.
Hanks was wrong subsequent investigations uncovered that the united way and the Red Cross -- in chaos and the families didn't get details on money nearly quick enough.
Joining us now from Los Angeles conservative commentator Andrew bright -- who runs the new blog -- Hollywood.
On a bright board dot com.
OPEC com it has comet looks to me that Tom Hanks is taken George Clooney's places big hitter.
Driving a lot of liberal causes would that be fair to say.
I would say that Tom Hanks has been doing this for many years it's just now coming -- -- notice that he's been run in with far left and Hollywood.
Back in 1998.
The maximum amount of money they could to Bill Clinton's defense fund this is a man who was against gay marriage as -- as Hillary Clinton so it's strange.
That he's now come out against more -- away when he Tom Hanks opposed gay marriage really.
Now no well the clintons opposed gay marriage all all -- that.
They did Don't Ask Don't Tell they did the defense of marriage act and he never raised.
I any concern with that presidency when he gave them the maximum amount of money.
He has also given Barack Obama -- against gay marriage a maximum amount of money.
When he opposes gay marriage so it's strange that he is not only going after the Mormon Church.
Four for being against gay marriage he's actually going against the Mormon Church with his series on HBO which draws a caricature of the Mormon Church.
Which is bit which is banned polygamy since eighteen now this is big love you talking about.
He had an eerie light for producers on that series yes I look I think Rita Wilson is is them the leftist who wears the political handsome in that operation there are aligned with.
The left -- the very left wing Laurie David.
-- that environmental in that radical left wing.
Environmental cause so if you start paying attention.
To Tom Hanks you realize that he's not the Jimmy Stewart of our age he's a very nice man everyone that I know that knows him says he's a great father.
But let's not let's not.
Pretend that -- something that he's not he's just -- George Clooney he's a very radical left.
Okay now -- he goes about it though much differently than Sean -- nor.
He's really hateful people I don't see anything hey I didn't like the Mormon thing and he apologized and everybody makes mistakes -- we assume he's sincere in his apology.
But he doesn't know about it in the the most vociferous -- me.
He didn't like what I did in 9/11 -- like me holding Clooney and him and these other.
Celebrities -- all I asked them was pay.
Just make a call the united way and and red cross and tell -- you know gets emergency here we got people suffering.
You know it's almost like the economic stimulus bill now stop -- which they all love but they wouldn't do that because I'm -- -- and I don't like.
Hanks career -- -- suffered George Clooney's career I think the reason he left the ideological stage Clooney.
Was because as gorillas get.
But -- career is okay.
We'll Hanks is a good man and he produced the John Adams series as well he does good work but I -- more worried about it Tom Hanks.
When -- war against radical Islam that I and I am against the caricature like Sean and he's a completely marginalize soul Tom Hanks is considered.
The the the Jimmy Stewart of this time and he's supported World War II groups.
In regards to his Saving Private Ryan -- but this is a man who has been conspicuously silent against the Nazis of our time.
Hi it's an interesting point -- I love the talked.
You know off -- record to -- sometime get his point of view but let's sum it up you believe that his wife Rita Wilson.
Is the real passionate almost like the Laurie David with what's his name Larry David they're not married anymore but she.
Really is and so you believe that she's the one that that is really involved socially and that he goes along with it.
It's it's an assumption that I have that is affirmed by a few people that that net that run in that circle right you'd like to talk -- when and more than you could possibly know yet because I think it's a good question.
You know he does a lot of good things give a lot of monument money -- war two in this you're right -- in a war I don't.
Against these terrorists and -- in saint.
Stepped that up but I don't know -- -- -- now that his president is in charge maybe he'll get behind the troops may be he'll get behind this war all right Andrew thanks very much every.
