Stacey Abrams Brilliantly Cynical Play Gives Hollywood Cover to Stay in Georgia

She gets to act governor-like, and when the studios inevitably agree to "stay and fight" (because, they were never going to leave anyway), she gets to play the heroine who saved Georgia's film industry. Hooray!

Stacey Abrams, shadow governor grifter of Georgia, has gone to Hollywood to beg the studios to “stay and fight” in the state, despite the state’s “heartbeat law” severely limiting abortion going into effect in 2020.

Of course, that’s exactly what the studios were going to do anyway.

Abrams has given Hollywood the cover they need to not act on their virtue signaling promises to abandon Georgia, while securing their adoring support in whatever political grift she conducts until the next time she faces the actual Governor Brian Kemp in an election (that’s 2022 if you’re keeping track).

How cynical.

How brilliant. Abrams gets to have her name obediently regurgitated in the Atlanta media.

She gets to act governor-like, and when the studios inevitably agree to “stay and fight” (because, they were never going to leave anyway), she gets to play the heroine who saved Georgia’s film industry. Hooray!

Remember this: Georgia is now the largest film location in the world. The media takes great pains in reminding us of this fact. Then they warn us how an eminently fair, popular, and moral law limiting abortion on demand to cases where the baby is undeveloped without a discernible heartbeat, and cannot therefore suffer the pain of being dismembered in mom’s womb, is going to destroy that industry. This despite the movie industry pouring billions into Georgia in long-term investment.

The movie industry is not going to walk away from billions. They won’t because money is their god. And now Stacey Abrams has become their savior, giving them cover to “stay and fight.” I’m sure they’ll deny she did it in exchange for some financial pole-greasing (watch to see how much money Hollywood gives her grift machine).

I thought Abrams could not get more cynical than claiming she lost an election with more votes cast than in decades (possibly, in history, check your notes, readers) because of “voter suppression.” But I was wrong. There’s no bottom to Abrams’ brilliant cynicism.
