For decades, Hollywood has shown absolute intolerance to those with whom they’ve disagreed politically.
Far worse, Tinseltown earned a reputation of justifying, excusing, and condoning sexual misconduct – even when perpetrated against children, see Roman Polanski.
Their hypocrisy was on display again after the Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a pro-life bill into law, with Hollywood elite – hellbent to see the worst in their opponents – prepared to punish that state’s budding film industry.

Clint Eastwood’s next film “Richard Jewell” is listed among the Georgia Film Commission’s projects shooting in the state this summer — despite the calls for a production boycott in Georgia over the state’s new anti-abortion “heartbeat” law.
Local news outlets, including WXIA in Atlanta noted that the film is set to begin shooting in Georgia this summer. A representative from the Georgia Film Commission told TheWrap that the film is projected to shoot in the state but had no additional details.
“We have made the decision to tell this compelling story — based on real people and events — in the locations where it actually took place, which is in and around Atlanta. As is always the case, we worked closely with our production partners to determine how and where to shoot this film, in order to best reflect authenticity in the storytelling,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement.
The Georgia Film Commission had no comment.
Eastwood’s latest film stars Olivia Wilde, Jon Hamm, and Sam Rockwell.
