Georgia abortion law: Boycott heats up as TV show and Kristen Wiig movie bail

A Lionsgate comedy and an Amazon Studios TV series have pulled out of Georgia after the passage of a law prohibiting abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The Kristen Wiig movie “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar” will not shoot in Georgia, a production source confirmed Tuesday. It and the Amazon Studios series “The Power” are the first projects to leave the state in protest of HB 481, which was signed by Gov. Brian Kemp on May 7 and, barring a legal challenge, is set to go into effect Jan. 1.

Amazon is making The Power into a TV show to compete with Hulu’s The Handmaids Tale.

I have covered The Power before.

Here is what the LA Times has to say about it.

“The Power” is based on the Naomi Alderman book, where women have gained the physical ability to zap others with powerful jolts of electricity, shifting the power dynamic and turning the world into a matriarchy. Morano won a Primetime Emmy in 2017 and a Directors Guild Award in 2018 for directing “The Handmaid’s Tale,” another show with a feminist bent.

That’s bullshit.

The Power is feminist incel revenge porn where women become tyrants who force men into subservience by developing the ability to electrocute them with a touch.  In one widely praised part of the book, one woman responds to being catcalled by zapping a man so hard his brain cooks and he dies.

It’s not a matriarchy.  It’s a tyrannical dictatorship of women.

And just like Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, The Power is celebrated as great feminist liberation literature.

And we’re not talking about Iran here, we are talking about in the United States of America, where women are the most free and have the most rights of any society in the history of the world.

“We had no problem stopping the entire process instantly,” “The Power” director Reed Morano told Time, adding that there was “no way” her project would give its production money to Georgia. Location scouts had reportedly been working in Savannah, Ga., for several months in preparation for Morano’s arrival, Time reported.

“[I]t felt wrong to us to go ahead and make our show and take money/tax credit from a state that is taking this stance on the abortion issue. We just couldn’t do it,” Morano said on Instagram.

Good, I hope they are taxed to death.  In fact, Trump is 100% right.  Tax the fuck out of Amazon.

I thought Jack Ryan was great, but this shit is fucking awful.

If I sound like I am sensitive to it, I am.

We have seriously turned a corner in America where if Elliot Rodger was a woman, she would be a national hero.

I’m seriously disturbed by the idea of a TV show were women sit down with popcorn and wine to watch other women engage in mass androcide.  It’s like watching Schindler’s List and rooting for the Nazis.

There is something deeply, deeply wrong with America if this becomes popular.
