It makes many people uncomfortable when it’s suggested that Jews control much, if not all, of Hollywood. To even mildly concede such notions is considered anti-Semitic among some politically-correct social circles. But to deny that Jews have played a leading role in the movie industry, especially in what kinds of movies and TV series are produced, would be intellectually dishonest. They clearly have.
These two documentaries, Hollywoodism: The Ideology that Has Devoured Western Culture and An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood (an 8-part series available on Youtube), make it abundantly clear that Jews from the very beginning have played a dominant role in Hollywood. By itself, this doesn’t necessarily make it a bad thing, and it’s important to note in fairness that gentiles also participated in what Hollywood has produced since the 1920s.
Still, it should come as no surprise to discover that while Jews played a significant role in the motion picture industry’s beginnings, they were also deeply influential in helping to reshape America’s culture and values, ones that would more closely align with their secular worldview and beliefs. They did this primarily through the types of movies and television sitcoms that were created during the 1960s, 70s, and right into the 21st century.

Hollywood moguls, comprised mostly of Jews, have helped create a general climate in which Jews are painted with a very sympathetic brush. Traditional or patriotic whites, particularly southern whites, are almost always featured on television or in the movies as dumb, uneducated rednecks who are ready at a moment’s notice to kill or maim anyone whose pigmentation is different from theirs. They helped convey a widespread image of patriotic Americans as backwards and out of place in a modern society.
It would be hard to deny that movies such as To Kill a Mockingbird and Mississippi Burning were not designed to portray whites in the South as a less than honorable people. Likewise, TV sitcoms such as All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, and Chico and the Man were designed to portray blacks and other minorities in a most favorable light. Whites were almost always featured as bigots with overt prejudices that they could never successfully conceal.
Traditional morality, specifically Christian morality, was targeted for attack by Hollywood Jewish elites in such TV sitcoms as Maude, Soap, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Dharma & Greg, and Seinfeld. These shows were designed to influence and thereby change traditional notions of morality, the important role of the family, and the acceptance of a new social and cultural paradigm (e.g., homosexuality, divorce as something good and ‘normal,’ miscegenation, and the general acceptance of sexually deviant behavior).

Influential Jews have done this for a variety of reasons, but probably the most noteworthy has been their promotion of racial and cultural diversity among Americans. Multiculturalism has played a major role among Jews in Hollywood and among Jewish academic elites because it serves as a protective buffer from the dominant white population, particularly WASPs, whom they view more or less as Nazis.
By helping to flood white, western nations with an array of different races and cultures, Jews are less likely to be singled out for persecution by those ‘racist whites.’ This is, admittedly, a very simplistic way of stating things, but I think it conveys in very general terms why Jews have been culture-shapers through the medium of films and why multiculturalism and loose immigration policies have been so important to them.
Here’s one very influential liberal Jewish woman, Barbara Lerner Spectre, who sees it as her life mission to remove from Europe the strength of its monolithic and homogeneous cultures. She admits that Jews have taken a “leading role” in such efforts and that they will be hated for it.
This matters little to Spectre. What’s most important to her and other Jews is the eradication of any perceived “anti-Semitism,” regardless of the havoc it creates for indigenous whites and their historic cultures and nations.
