In a Hollywood full of leftist ideologues, one might be surprised to find out there is internal opposition to the woke regime. Of course, most who do argue against the regime are silenced quickly, labeled as has-beens and talentless hacks.
But it looks like the strategy might come back to bite them, both at the box office and in terms of the quality actors they are alienating. As a matter of fact, it looks like they alienated an A-Lister, and they will surely regret it.
While this strategy works against many actors, it is less apt against others. For instance, it is hard to dismiss Clint Eastwood as a talentless hack, given his nearly 60-year film career. It is also challenging to dismiss Mel Gibson or Jon Voigt, who both have won many Oscars.
The strategy fails to convince audiences, who trust their eyes more than the mouths of liberal film critics. And they should because the motives of the film critic are littered with bias.
Recently, Mark Wahlberg has joined this brigade against the wild-eyed Leftism we see coming from Hollywood. His newest film, Father Stu, is an extended meditation on forgiveness and God’s grace. This is completely antithetical to Cancel Culture.
In a recent interview with Faithwire, Mark Wahlberg stressed the need for forgiveness. Here is a quote:
“This movie has a very clear message that we are not going to give up on people,” he said. “We are not going to turn our backs on people because of mistakes that they’ve made. We are going to tell people and encourage people that nobody is beyond redemption and that we support you, we love you, we accept you for who you are.”
As a devout Catholic, Wahlberg believes in the power of forgiveness. As such, he stands against Cancel Culture. He continues:
“Part of why cancel culture is so toxic is because, as Wahlberg said, “there’s nothing worse than when somebody realizes that people don’t care,” because it causes them to “lose hope and have no faith.”

“You cannot give up on people,” the A-lister continued. “And people are so quick to turn their backs on people. And negativity as a whole has just been amplified in a way that it’s really hard to remind people of the importance of loving and supporting people. People can do incredible things.”
We are happy to hear Mark Wahlberg is now on the side of the truth. If he becomes more vocal in his opposition to Leftist ideology, he could really change things for the better. We hope he continues to fight the good fight,
