‘Schindler’s List’ Producer Blacklisted From High School Grad Speech?
Was the principle afraid of, that his graduating students would get “Right-Wing Conservative” cooties? OR…that after 12 years of public schooling they may be exiting with their [individual] minds intact, with the ability to decide for themselves what path to follow? God forbid!
(The Hollywood Reporter) –Gerald Molen won a best picture Oscar for co-producing Schindler’s List with Steven Spielberg and has produced such Hollywood blockbusters as the first two Jurassic Park films and Twister. He’s a former U.S. Marine and is a sought-after motivational speaker.
So he’s not accustomed to being shunned.
Such was the case, though, when he was invited to speak to the graduating class at a Montana high school. But upon arriving, was told by the principal he would not be allowed to deliver the speech he had prepared.
The reason, he believes, is politics.
Molen is one of those rare conservatives in Hollywood
