Patrick Dollard

Patrick Dollard is an American documentary filmmaker. In the 1990s he was a Hollywood talent agent, manager, and producer most known for helping to build the career of Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh.[1]

Dollard has been known as a Hollywood conservative since the mid-1990s, and promotes himself as a conservative filmmaker, blogger, and pundit. His work has been discussed in U.S. News and World Report, Variety, The Huffington Post, The New York Times,[1] Fox News,[2] The Washington Times, and Vanity Fair,[3] and by Rush Limbaugh. Dollard has been an alcoholic and drug abuser and has struggled to overcome his addictions, as detailed in an article by Evan Wright in Vanity Fair[3] and in his subsequent book Hella Nation.

Iraq War Project

While still running a management company, representing Soderbergh and helping to service Soderbergh and George Clooney's production company at Warner Brothers' (Section 8 Films), in 2004 Dollard decided to do a side project for a few weeks in three combat zones in Iraq: Fallujah, The Triangle of Death, and Ramadi. The project began as a 2-4 week rapid-production documentary project, but eventually grew to include a 7-month stay in Iraq with a Marine unit and over 200 hours of footage. The resulting documentary, Young Americans, has been released in segments on the Internet and clips have been shown on television. Dollard and footage from Young Americans are featured in a new French documentary for Canal Plus called Hollywood and Politics, directed by David Carr Brown.

Political views

Dollard has argued that there were more important reasons for the Iraq war other than Weapons of Mass Destruction. He believes that "The root causes of terrorism are the lack of capitalism, the lack of democracy, and the lack of modern education."[4] Dollard contends that the Iraq war has successfully removed some of the barriers to these in the Middle East.

In 2008, Dollard described the ideological conflict between the left and right in the United States as "a gunless and bloodless civil war".[5]

Jihadi Killer Hour

Dollard hosted a web-only radio show called "The Jihadi Killer Hour" at Blog Talk Radio from May 2008 to August 2010.[6] His guests included "Hollywood, Interrupted" author Mark Ebner, Matt Drudge's former partner Andrew Breitbart (founder of websites Breitbart.com and Big Hollywood), "Media Malpractice: How Obama Won The Election" director John Ziegler, Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer, independent war correspondent Michael Yon, conservative pundit and former "Politically Incorrect" staff writer Evan Sayet, "Brothers At War" director Jake Rademacher, African-American comedian Zo, Harlem Pastor James Manning, and conservative comedian Steven Crowder.

The American Constitution and Capitalism Defense Front

Dollard announced in 2009 that he had founded a political organization named "the American Constitution and Capitalism Defense Front" (ACCDF) which he said would also be known as Active.[7]
