Newsom Calls Hollywood to Boycott Red States
CA Governor Gavin Newsom has threatened Hollywood. suggesting that their tax credits rely on what states they work with.
From Breitbart. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) demanded Wednesday that Hollywood studios boycott states that pass pro-life laws and restrictions on abortion, as he backed a five-year extension of a $1.65 billion state tax credit to the entertainment industry.
Newsom announced his support for the tax credit, and in an accompanying public advertisement titled “Hollywood: Your Values, Your Choice,” Newsom said that it was “time to choose” between California’s liberal values, and those of conservative states (original emphasis):
Over the past several years, the legislatures of states like Georgia and Oklahoma have waged a cruel assault on essential rights. Now, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s abhorrent decision overturning Roe v. Wade, those same states are moving quickly to strip reproductive freedom….
So to those in power to make decisions about where to film, where to hire, where to open new offices, we in California say: Walk the walk….
Newsom’s message suggests that the state is willing to impose its own ideological views… — and that the “freedom” the industry enjoys in the state, including its access to tax credits, depends on conformity to the state view….
