How Hollywood is Undermining Us in The War on Terror

Writer/screenwriter Mark Tapson writes about hollywood politics and Islamic terrorism for Andrew Breitbart's websites Big Hollywood and Big Peace, as well as David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog.

He was the writer's assistant and researcher on, among other projects, The Stoning of Soraya M. and the controversial miniseries The Path to 9/11. His experience on the latter project prompted his political conversion from liberal to conservative, as noted in the documentary Blocking the Path to 9/11.


Currently writing a documentary for renowned terrorism expert Steven Emerson, Mark is alsoworking on a book entitled Subversion: How Hollywood is Undermining Us in the War on Terror. He has also begun a new script, an historical epic about the clash of Europe and Islam in the Dark Ages.


His work has also appeared on websites such as Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch, Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism, Big Journalism, and MovieGuide.

You can read his article on the Ground Zero Mosque here.

We are encouraging all of our members to patronize the businesses of our fellow members and Republicans.  If you need goods and services, why not have them provided by your fellow Republicans?
