“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19 (New International Version)
Life. It is a simple word, yet for some very odd reason, it has become a very divisive word. I find it very perplexing when we have commercials tugging at our heartstrings for puppies, dogs, cats, kittens, and baby seals. We care more about trees and plants than that which was made in God’s very own image, as we are. The very first unalienable right endowed to us by our Creator is life. After that, you have liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but those two subsequent unalienable rights are not possible without the very first one.
As y’all know, I was born and raised in down south in Atlanta, Georgia. And right now, I could not be more proud of the principled elected leadership in Georgia who stood up for Life.
“Despite a massive wave of celebrity boycotts, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a historic pro-life bill on Tuesday that would ban abortions at the point a fetal heartbeat is detected, typically at the 6-week mark. Upset with the legislation, actress Alyssa Milano urged her fellow actors to “stop feeding the Georgia economy.”
The Writers Guild of America even warned Kemp that if he signed the pro-life legislation, it could do major damage to the state’s film industry. “We thank Governor Brian Kemp and the Georgia legislature for championing this compassionate law,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“The growing momentum to protect unborn babies from their first heartbeats is further proof Americans reject the extremism on display in New York, Virginia, and in Congress, as Democratic Party leaders back abortion on demand through birth and even infanticide.
Pro-abortion Hollywood elites clearly underestimated the people of Georgia in thinking they could be bullied. We hope their courage will inspire even more states to stand up to the abortion lobby.”
Who are these entertainment elites who believe that they can threaten, coerce, intimidate the elected leadership of a state to do their bidding? How dare these people use economic terrorism as a means to attain their deranged objectives. How telling it is that when you have ol’ Gov. Ralph “Blackface” Northam of Virginia advocating infanticide, or Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York signing infanticide into law, you hear nothing from these entertainment elites. I am sure these are the same useful village idiots who show up for Planned Parenthood gala events, yet they demand statues of Confederate generals be torn down. The hypocrisy is laughable considering that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an avowed white supremacist and racist who spoke at Ku Klux Klan rallies.
As an American black man I find the
actions threats of Alyssa Milano and the Writers Guild of America insulting. Since Roe v. Wade, there has been a deliberate genocide — Sanger’s vision — of unborn black babies to the tune of some 18M murdered in the womb. Do these white, progressive, socialist elites, and their bought and paid for black henchmen overseers, really value their industry over the first unalienable right, Life, especially life for little black babies?
Let’s not forget how the entertainment elites responded to the true-to-life film, “Unplanned.” The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) gave the film an R rating, meaning that anyone under 17 years of age could not see the film without an adult. Yet, these are the same people who advocate for young girls to be able to murder their unborn child without parental knowledge, consent.
I applaud Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp for standing up for what is right, over that which is economically convenient. How can it be that these entertainment elites have come to believe that they can control our culture, our society, and dictate to us what is and is not acceptable, to them? If there is anything this episode tells us, it is that the tyranny of the progressive socialist left is deeply rooted in the entertainment industry. The elites there do not hide their demonic agenda and will leverage any possible means to attain their ideological agenda. And in this case, it is the murder of our unborn, and born, children.
I shall not apologize, nor mince words anymore. What Gov. Kemp signed into law is that in the State of Georgia, they will respect Life. When there is a heartbeat, there is a human life. We cannot be so barbaric, willing to lay our children on the altar of sacrifice to Moloch and believe it is just fine.
Yes, I do believe that a woman has the right to choose when she has been violated by way of rape, incest, or her physical life is in danger. However, I will never support, embrace, or accept the murder of unborn babies, even living babies, as a means of birth control. Will you?
You can view a copy of the letter drafted by the Writers Guild, read it and be appalled. It is nothing more than a threat letter. Why is the Writers Guild enacting, threatening, economic terrorism on the people of Georgia? It is just the same as the CEO of Levis jeans who is rewarding his employees who support anti-second amendment groups and efforts.
WGAE and @WGAWest oppose Georgia’s abortion ban legislation #HB481. This draconian anti-choice law would discourage people in our industry from working in Georgia and could harm the state’s vibrant film and television industry. Full statement attached. pic.twitter.com/bAfJkhXSTv

Who are these people who believe We the People can be browbeaten down into acquiescing to their demands, whims, tyranny? I say no. Let them “boycott” us, and they will discover our power when We the People stop going to their movies or watching their shows.
Yes, I reside in the Lone Star State, proud to be here in Texas. Yes, I went to college at the University of Tennessee, and proud to be a Tennessee Volunteer. But my first breath was taken in the Peach State of Georgia, and I am proud that the state of my birth made a stand to allow others to have their first unalienable right . . . Life.
Proud of y’all back there in Georgia, and you entertainment elites can just “Kiss Our Grits.”
