While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders, who are silent no more.
There is a feeling of new life, of renewal, in the spring air and flyover folks welcome a new planting season, the births of calves, lambs, piglets, and foals – an everlasting circle of life celebrated from Montana to New Mexico, across the Iowa and the Dakota plains, and south to Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia. The breeze is sweet with promise.
The promise for protection of life captured the attention of rural and small-town folks, as all eyes watched the state of Georgia debate abortion – and win with a monumental decision by the state House of Representatives to pass HB481: The Heartbeat Bill. The would-be law now sits in the office of Governor Brian Kemp, who has until May 12 to sign or veto the measure.
Alyssa Milano, Please Go Away
Of course, celebrities and Democrats collectively lost their minds. After achieving the up-to-birth abortion allowances adopted in the several states, most recently including New York, leftists felt there would be more to follow.
Then Georgia stepped up and shattered that victory party, prompting former child actress and sporadic activist, Alyssa Milano, to reappear.
Milano organized a handful of her Hollywood pals and began threatening the state with boycotts. She organized the local film and television industry in Georgia to protest outside the governor’s office. Who knew that the Peach State was such a hot spot?
She stomped around the courthouse, mouthed off to a few state lawmakers, and proceeded to make a brief, but heartfelt, statement:
“I am surrounded by amazing crew members and with the support of countless workers in the entertainment industry, to say that we reject this attempt to criminalize women for making decisions that work best for them in their lives.”
Few people were moved by the used-to-be actress. And God Bless the southern women for their ability to tell you to go to hell and have that person ask for directions.
Heather Painter was quick to advise: “Hey Alyssa, go home! Georgia was fine before you and Hollywood came, we’ll be just fine when you leave!!!” Brittany Benzinger cheered her on. “Heather Painter agree! Don’t let our southern door hit you in the rear on your way out, Alyssa!”
Laura Elliott Johnson led with this sneaky rebuke – “Bless your heart sweetie, but you just mind your own chicken coop. We know how to keep the foxes out of our own, thank you very much.”
Victoria Powell Ingram brought the message back to actual voters in Georgia with “This is an issue for Georgia residents who actually have higher morals than Hollywood….get the heck out of here.”
But Sis Woodruff went with retribution for the activist: “I would tell you to go to Hel* but you have a one-way ticket there already.”
In an interesting twist, the comments across Twitter and Facebook were mostly delivered by women. But then again, who would want to go head to head with a southern belle?
There are several states that make New York’s recent passage of the up-to-birth abortion seem almost humane. Oregon, Vermont, Colorado, New Hampshire, and the District of Columbia all have zero major prohibitions on abortion.
Oregon and Vermont fund all or most “medically necessary” abortions. The District of Columbia, Colorado, and New Hampshire have a life endangerment, rape, and incest clause. In Alaska, New Jersey, and New Mexico, abortions are allowed up until birth with the states picking up the cost for all or most “medically necessary” abortions.
Ironically, New Jersey lawmakers recently introduced a bill to prevent the slaughter of pregnant cows.
If the people of Georgia have their way, Governor Kemp will sign HB481, and a rejoicing will reverberate across those states that choose life. And Alyssa Milano will fight again another day. Perhaps we’ll see her next pushing for HB 604 – the Testicular Bill of Rights, introduced by Georgia state Representative Dar’Shun Kendrick. That would make it an “aggravated assault” for a man to let fly without a condom. Sounds like it would be right up her alley.
