most bizarre convention speech ever given, Eastwood demonstrated this sign.
The site Conspirazzi is to be credited with noting, "Clint Eastwood gives the sign of the second veil before he dies at the end of Gran Torino. Clint is a confirmed member of Bohemian Grove. I think it’s elementary that he would be a member of the brotherhood."
By the way, don't attempt to debunk this gesture being an invention, not of the actor, but of the director of Gran Torino. After all, the lead actor, the director, and the first producer of Gran Torino is Clint Eastwood.
It has long been known that Clint Eastwood is a member of the secret power club, mostly made up of wealthy Republicans, called Bohemian Grove.
Bohemian Grove has had many exposes of it, including that "in the 80's it was leaked that the Grove was what allowed for the inception of the atom bomb, eventually becoming known as the “Manhattan Project.” Partially detailed in a 1986 movie baring the same title and made by director, Marshall Brickman, also an admitted Bohemian."
Before his appearance, some conservatives like Drudge and Ann Coulter would have you think that Eastwood was riding in on a horse to save the Republican Party.
But what happened revealed a bit more than anyone could have predicted.
Is Eastwood's membership in jeopardy due to his performance at the Republican Convention? Certainly, people were not talking about Romney after that gathering, but of Eastwood.
BTW, at the end of the day, the fastest growing meme across the world of Twitter and the Interweb was "Eastwooding." It involved taking a photograph of yourself in a discussion with an empty chair.
