Celebs Call For Georgia Film Boycott

Hollywood’s finest luminaries are coming out of the woodwork to boycott Georgia. The state is actually home to many film and TV productions, earning it the nickname “Hollywood of the south.” But a raft of B-list actors and tinseltown has-beens hit Twitter in the past few days to protest the gubernatorial election there, which liberals are already calling rigged because their gal, Stacey Abrams, lost. Alyssa Milano, Ron Perlman, Steven Pasquale, and Bradley Whitford of The West Wing fame all tweeted their demands that some 20 active productions in Georgia stop immediately. Abrams, despite fueling all the “rigged” conspiracy talk, said she appreciates the sentiment but wouldn’t want the people employed by the state’s film industry to pay for her temper tantrum and state of denial.

—QUOTABLE: “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.” -Abrams

Holder Joins Hillary In Rejecting Calls For Civility

Hot on the heels of twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s promise that there will be no civility until Republicans are out of power, former attorney general Eric Holder is doubling down. “When they go low, we kick them,” Holder told a crowd at a campaign event for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The comment is an uglier riff on former first lady Michelle Obama’s comment, “when they go low, we go high.” Which turned out to not be true at all.

—QUOTABLE: “Michelle [Obama] always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick them…That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats, we’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic party . . . we’re in this to win.” -Holder
