He Just Came Out of the Closet, But Will This Megastar be Blacklisted by the Intolerant Haters in Hollywood?

Vince Vaughn just came out of the closet, but it’s not the one you’re probably thinking of. No, he just exposed himself as a gun-loving libertarian, which might just send Hollywood liberals into an apoplectic rage.

Apple Store Soho Presents Meet The Actor: Vince Vaughn

Vaughn committed what many in Hollywood will consider three “immortal sins” in a recent interview with Playboy magazine as reported by Breitbart.

Firstly, Vaughn admitted to being a fan of pro-liberty former Congressman Ron Paul and described his political views as Libertarian. Secondly, he came out as pro-Second Amendment. Thirdly, he committed what his commie Hollywood colleagues may believe is the unpardonable sin, he basically called affirmative action a form of racism.

“I’m a very big fan, yes,” Vaughn said about Ron Paul. “Ron Paul woke a lot of people up to the fact that government can’t handle everything for you,” he said when asked if he would support a Ron Paul presidential candidacy in 2016.

“Once you start playing that game, where does it stop?” Vaughn asked. “I like the way it was until 1913 [pre-Federal Reserve and federal income tax via the 16th Amendment], when locally you had sales taxes and property taxes. That seems ethical to me, because I can move to a different neighborhood or area if I like the services they provide. To this day, your police department and your fire department are paid for with local taxes, and that makes sense, because you might use those. But the federal government looking into your books to decide what to take from you, that feels wrong,” he asserted.

Vaughn told Playboy’s contributing editor David Hochman that, “Trusting the federal government to know what we need and to run things well feels like a bad idea,” before going on to say that he’s against undeclared wars and the “foreign policy of force,” where the U.S. “decides to go into another country to make things turn out a certain way,” seemingly a shot at nation building.

“But I don’t agree with a foreign policy that says you can send troops places without declaring a war and without having a plan to win the war,” he told Hochman, giving Vietnam as an example.

Hochman then asked the popular actor whether he owned a gun, to which Vaughn replied, “I believe in the right to defend yourself if need be. Hopefully, you’re never in that situation, but I think you’re fairly naive to believe there will never be a cause for self-defense. But again, I believe it’s up to the individual,” he contended.

When asked if he was a fan of affirmative action and racial quotas, Vaughn replied with a question. “Do you believe that using race as a factor in evaluating a person is a good way to operate?”

Not many celebrities can survive if they don’t toe the liberal Hollywood line — you’ve got to be an established, untouchable A-lister in order to pull that off. But hopefully, Vince Vaughn’s career will survive, and his coming out of the closet will encourage other closet conservatives and libertarians to do so as well.
