Extremist, left-wing Hollywood actors are big supporters of the sort of confiscatory tax rates that have driven the film industry right out of California, but now those same do-gooders are agitating to destroy Georgia’s burgeoning movie industry, too.
Several extreme left-wing actors have jumped to a new effort to boycott Georgia’s growing movie industry because of the false claims that the state “suppressed” the minority vote during the 2018 midterm elections.
Two D-List actors, both of whom are loudly outspoken haters of American’s center-right, recently tried to drum up a new campaign to decimate Georgia’s film industry.
Actress Alyssa Milano — who has spent more time rabble rousing for left-wing causes than acting over the last decade — and the low-in-demand character actor Ron Perlman — another virulent, vitriolic hater of anything to the right — have both started tweeting to urge their colleagues to stop doing business in Georgia.
There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia.
Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?

Perlman’s tweet was sparked by Obama hack Frank Rich who is also the executive producer of the HBO series Veep.
Last week, Rich tweeted, “If Kemp wins in Georgia, Hollywood should put its money where its mouth is and pull all production out of the state.”

A week later, Kemp was, finally, determined to be the winner of Georgia’s race for governor.
According to Daily Caller:
The hashtag #boycottgeorgia began to trend after Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic state representative and romance novelist, announced Friday that she would no longer challenge the Georgia Secretary of State’s election results. While Abrams acknowledged Kemp would be the winner of the election, she refused to call her speech a “concession” because a “concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper.”
Before Kemp was certified as the official victor, actors were already threatening to boycott working in Georgia, a state with a large film industry that’s been dubbed the Hollywood of the South.
Amusingly, even their beloved loser, Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams, tried to put the kibosh on the boycott effort.
I appreciate the calls to action, but I ask all of our entertainment industry friends to support #FairFightGA – but please do not #boycottgeorgia. The hard-working Georgians who serve on crews & make a living here are not to blame. I promise: We will fight – and we will win.

That, right there, is funny. I don’t care who ya are.
She’s a left-wing extremist, granted, but at least Abrams is still claiming to side with the people of her state.
