When Hollywood tried to end Angie Harmon’s career after she challenged their secular agenda as an outspoken conservative, she fired back fearlessly.
As the star of one of the most successful cable television sitcoms ever, Rizzoli & Isles, Angie Harmon has become an easy target for liberals.
The Dallas, Texas native has no problem voicing her criticism of Obama. After more than 20 years in the industry, Angie Harmon is still neglected in celebrity news outlets because of her “controversial” conservative values – yet she’s someone every American should be looking up to.
Here’s 3 Reasons Why Angie Harmon Is Awesome:
#1: She’s a devout Christian….
“The one thing I’ve learned is that even in my darkest moments, when I feel the most alone, I’m not alone. I can still talk to God and ask for help. I want my girls to know that,” Harmon said.
“Their middle names aren’t Faith, Grace and Hope because I’m an atheist,” she said about daughters Finley, Avery, and Emery.
Angie even went through extraordinary lengths to make sure her girls would grow up in a town with “a church on every corner, as opposed to just a Starbucks.”
“I pray every day for my little girls. It’s hard out there for the younger generation,” she said.
When asked to describe her idea of a perfect Sunday, Angie said, “In North Carolina we go to church, but I don’t really have a church in L.A. so these days we get up, put on our swimsuits, and hang out by the pool. It’s very restful. We have Sunday night dinner with friends and their kids and some of the cast. I just got this fabulous outdoor dining table that lights on fire down the middle. I just love that I’ve got people around that table every Sunday.”
#2: She’s old-school…
Angie made the bold decision in 2010 to uproot her three daughters from their Los Angeles home so she could raise them in the conservative environment of Charlotte, North Carolina.
“It was too fast for my little girls,” Angie said about the Los Angeles lifestyle. “They were coming home and talking about things that they had no business talking about — things like making out with a boy.”
“We all love living in Charlotte because it exudes a small town mentality and we feel like we are part of a nice stable community. Everything is close. Our friends live near, shopping and schools are a short drive away. And there is a lot of pride in the neighborhood,” she explained.
“I’m happy that we moved. One day, my kids are going to say, ‘Remember when we sat in the yard [in North Carolina] and fed the geese?’ I’m so proud that I can give them these memories. And I’m more grounded and centered in North Carolina because it’s a slower way of life. We go bike riding or go to the ice cream parlor,” Angie said.
Angie isn’t ashamed to admit she sounds “old-fashioned” when talking about the kind of women she’s raising her girls to be someday. “They have to be responsible members of society. They need to know they’re important to us, and they also need to be important to themselves,” she explained.
#3: She’s a proud Republican…
“When I quote, unquote came out [as a Republican] I had no idea I was doing something that was detrimental to my career. It never occurred to me. I’m an American. I’m going to have an opinion as everybody else does and I was asked a question. The fact that it was turned into that I was a gay-hating racist was just heartbreaking. It was really horrible,” Angie said.
“If someone’s not going to hire me because I don’t think the way they think, ok great, it’s America go ahead but I promise you there are a lot more Republicans in L.A. than people think. Believe me I got all the phone calls of support. I know there are. We’ve become so intolerant of each other that it’s just sickening. It’s just heartbreaking. United we stand, divided we fall. We have got to learn to be tolerant of each other. It’s pretty obvious we’re not going to all think the same way but we’ve got to learn to appreciate every American for the fact that they have the right to think the way they do,” she revealed.
“Our forefathers moved here for freedom of speech and wanting to be able to have their own opinion. I don’t care if you’re Republican or a Democrat or a Liberal, getting crucified for the way you think or believe, obviously if it’s not hurting anyone, it’s just Un-American,” she explained.
