The Hollywood Left Hates Alabama ^ | May 17, 2019 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham

Posted on 05/17/2019 3:38:42 AM PDT by Kaslin

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill on May 14 protecting unborn babies from the slaughter of abortion. The vote wasn't close in the state legislature: 74-3 in the House, 25-6 in the Senate.

One more state has come to its senses.

There's a wave of pro-life bills being passed in the Southern states. First came the "heartbeat" bills stopping abortions after a baby's heartbeat can be detected (around six weeks). Then came Alabama. Its bill stops all abortions except for cases where the life of the mother is in danger or the unborn baby has a "lethal anomaly," and threatens abortion doctors with up to 99 years in jail. The left will naturally try to get Democrat-appointed federal judges to repeal it.

But in the meantime, the Hollywood left is furious. Barbra Streisand lamented: "The retrograde Alabama criminalizes abortion even in the case of rape and incest. Voted for overwhelmingly by GOP men. Handmaid's Tale from the GOP."

Lady Gaga called it an "outrage" and "all the more heinous" that it doesn't allow exceptions for those who are raped "or are experiencing incest non-consensual or not." Gaga is inclusive enough to show compassion toward those practicing consensual incest.

Alyssa Milano was also livid at the 22 men who voted against the rape and incest exception. "NOT ONE UTERUS," she tweeted. That the governor who signed the bill and the female state representative who sponsored the bill are women is irrelevant.

There was also "not one uterus" among the seven men who legalized nationwide abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973.

Sarah Silverman was counting differently, tweeting, "27 white males just decided what Alabama women can and can't do with their own bodies and lives. (Males cause 100% of unwanted pregnancies)."

The "comedians" thought their rage would be funny. They were wrong. On TBS, Samantha Bee announced the regulators of abortion "wouldn't recognize a vulva if it bit them in the face." Former "Daily Show" co-creator Lizz Winstead claimed, "I love the people of Alabama and want to punch their politicians in the c--k."

Comedian and former "Daily Show" producer Jena Friedman snapped on Twitter that "in Alabama, life begins at rape." Friedman also tweeted, "The best way to stop abortion is to just kill women before they get pregnant! -- Alabama legislature 2020." This is the same woman who warned women during Stephen Colbert's election-night freak-out in 2016, "Get your abortions now!"

Hollywood's male feminists also pitched in. Actor Bradley Whitford insisted, "Misogyny is the reptilian brain stem of right wing ideology."

Jameela Jamil of the NBC afterlife sitcom "The Good Place" called the new Georgia law "blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women" and then added, "I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn't want."

It's amazing that women who abort babies can always rationalize that they are such immensely horrible people that the babies would be better off dead. Jamil implied foster care is worse than abortion: "So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel."

It's amazing that these "progressives" believe their compassion is limitless, and yet they express every Orwellian adjective known to man about violently ending a life before it starts. Saving the babies is "restrictive," not "protective." It's "brutal," not stopping brutality. It's "cruel," and even "barbaric." And ripping babies limb from limb is ... the antonym?

As the Dems would say if the shoe was on the other foot,.

We don’t want to ban abortions
We want common sense abortion laws.

I’ve enjoyed listening to the left coming un-glued at the prospect of their most sacred issue (abortion) being dismantled. They know what the end result is going to be. Roe V Wade being touched in any way causes widespread panic and I am happy to see them lose their collective minds.

Let’s face it, the South has been Hollywood’s whipping boy for over half a century. All things evil are attributed to the South. This latest round of anti-Alabama hysteria and vitriol is their norm and is nothing new.

It’s not just the South that the Holly-WEIRD LEFT hates. - Instead they HATE the USA.
(I suggest that the DIM-wits, who’ve repeatedly threatened to leave forever, leave America & never return.)

Any wonder, throughout history, why actors were always considered one step above a common prostitute?
Even the word “actor” in Greek is today’s word Hypocrite.

The feeling is mutual. We pulled the plug on cable TV years ago. Uninterested in their disgusting indoctrination.

The Hollywood left already hated Alabama (and the South in general) long before this.
