Those of us who live in Flyover Country have a lot of ignorant preconceptions about our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in Hollywood. Such as: They’re a bunch of self-important clowns who really hate unborn babies. Where in the world would we get a silly idea like that?

Rodney Ho, Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

More than 40 Hollywood celebrities signed a letter sent to the Georgia House Speaker David Ralston and Georgia governor Brian Kemp Thursday morning saying they will push TV and film production companies to abandon Georgia if the “heartbeat” abortion bill is signed into law.

Among those who signed the letter: Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, Gabrielle Union, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Essence Atkins, Uzo Aduba, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Atlanta native David Cross, Don Cheadle, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford and Amber Tamblyn…

The letter opens by complimenting the state as being hospitable with “friendly and caring people” and hotels and restaurants that are “comfortable and of high quality.”

You know the one thing all those actors have in common? None of them were aborted.

How’s that for chutzpah? A bunch of Hollywood big shots move their production facilities to another state that gives them generous tax incentives, and then they start pushing around the locals. They swoop in, make their big dumb superhero movies and such, and then start pontificating about which laws their benefactors should pass. They’re just carpetbaggers with more expensive luggage.

And these actors make sure to be as condescending about it as possible: “But hey, don’t get us wrong… you ignorant backwoods rubes sure do run some nice hotels!”

If you don’t like it, go back to California, you arrogant, privileged A-holes. Then you can kill all the babies you want.
