For those who may somehow still be unaware, liberal Hollywood celebrities and other pro-abortion advocates really don’t like the strict new pro-life measure signed into law by Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
The law bans most abortions in the state once a heartbeat is detected in the unborn baby, which could occur as soon as six weeks into a pregnancy.
Incensed leftists led by ignorant celebrities excoriated the governor, his state and the Republicans who control the legislature.
They also threatened to launch a sort of economic boycott that would result in Hollywood withdrawing some, if not all, of their film and television production projects from the state.
But Kemp is wholly unimpressed by those threats, as was revealed during his Saturday address to the Georgia Republican Convention, during which he openly mocked the “C-list celebrities” who were driving the threat of a Hollywood boycott, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“I understand that some folks don’t like this new law. I’m fine with that,” Kemp said, referring to the new pro-life law.
“We’re elected to do what’s right — and standing up for precious life is always the right thing to do,” the governor added.
Kemp then took a rather unsubtle shot at those who had been calling for a boycott of his state.
“We are the party of freedom and opportunity. We value and protect innocent life — even though that makes C-list celebrities squawk,” he said.
You just know that the mockingly dismissive manner in which Kemp just demoted these sanctimonious and self-righteous celebrities — A-listers all, at least in their own eyes — was really just like pouring lemon juice over a paper cut. It stings really bad, but they will nevertheless survive.
The Journal-Constitution reported that a number of Hollywood celebrities — some well known, others less so — and even a few production companies had signed onto a letter expressing their intent to boycott the state in the future.
Georgia has become something of a “Hollywood East” in recent years due to various tax incentives offered by the state to those who wish to film and develop movies and TV programs in the heart of the southeast.
But Kemp just made it abundantly clear he isn’t the slightest bit worried over the possible economic repercussions from a boycott.
During his speech, Kemp also took a much more subtle, but no less humorous shot at his most recent political rival, failed Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.
“We fought every liberal activist in the country — and we won,” Kemp said of the 2018 election.
“And I’ll say it again for the folks in the back of the room: We won. But make no mistake, we cannot rest on our laurels. We have to double down and do it again.”
The governor also took a few shots at the “agenda-driven media” that incessantly reports in a negative fashion on his administration and policies.
He also slammed “talking heads and the Twitter trolls” who try to undermine his efforts at governing the state.
With an eye toward the next election cycle, Kemp noted that Georgia’s “best days” are still ahead.
“Folks, this is a battleground state in 2020. And it’s time to hunker down and fight,” he said.
“The left is angry, they’re radical and they’re ridiculous.”
But angry, radical and ridiculous are no match for calm confidence, principles and a backbone strong enough to not only withstand intense public pressure from Hollywood and the media but also to mockingly dismiss that pressure as meaningless and ineffective.
Every conservative across this nation — whether a political leader or just an average patriotic American citizen — should emulate Kemp’s backbone and stand strong in the face of the left with brutal yet humorous mockery, as well as savage dismissal of their efforts to undermine and destroy the country we love and cherish.
