John Schneider of “Dukes Of Hazzard” fame has long been one of the few
stars in Hollywood who is unafraid to be open about his conservative
views. He’s now showing that once again, as he defies leftwing Hollywood
by starring in a patriotic new movie that defends both free speech and the
American flag!

Schneider Talks Patriotic New Movie
In the new movie To Die For, which was made independently without a
major studio backing it, Schneider plays a veteran who fights for his First
Amendment rights after receiving a court order to keep his American flagflying truck away from his local high school. This is not the type of movie
that gets made in Hollywood these days, which only made Schneider more
determined to star in it.
Schneider explained to Fox News that he was drawn to this type of story
after seeing an article about a man who was arrested for refusing to take
his American flag off his truck.
“[My wife and I] are big supporters of our military and our law
enforcement,” he said. “And I thought, ‘now is the time to make a movie
about this guy.’”
Schneider knew immediately that this movie would resonate with
audiences because he’s seeing “more and more people with the American
flag flying from the back of… their pickup trucks.”
“I wanted to make a movie not about that individual guy, but that kind of
guy who is willing to go to jail in order to continue to express his First
Amendment right of free speech,” Schneider explained.
“The second notion was this movie has got to come out before the midterm
elections in 2022… so that it will urge people who are, for some reason,
timid or quiet to speak their mind,” he continued. “No matter what, the
movie had to come out on Oct. 20 to give enough lead time so that people
could see it before voting in November.”
Schneider Knew Hollywood Wouldn’t Touch ‘To Die For’
Schneider knew enough about what modern Hollywood is like that he
didn’t even try to approach a studio to get this film made. Instead, he made
it himself in just ten months with a crew of under ten people.
“People talk about Hollywood as if it has autonomy,” he said. “Hollywood is
a line item on a billionaire globalist spreadsheet, really. So, Hollywood has
to basically do what they’re told. I know a lot of people in Hollywood, and I
don’t really believe that they are naïve enough to believe a lot of the things
that they put forth as truth. But as a very old song used to say, they owe
their soul to the company store.”
“You’ve got the celebrity types who… get paid a lot of money, but they’re
really doing what they’re told as well,” Schneider added. “So there’s not a
lot of room in that model for free thought. There’s not a lot of room in that
model for free speech. You really have to work, I believe, outside that
model, ’cause that model’s not going to change.”
