The far-Left owns Hollywood, churning out movie after movie that are little more than woke propaganda wrapped in a nice shiny ribbon.
But the American public is waking up to the façade.
And now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is crying in her bucket of popcorn as she figures out what the latest left-wing movie’s box office failure will mean at the ballot box.
Democrats all-in on abortion
Democrats are hoping voters want so badly to kill babies that when they head to the polls they’ll forget all about a recession, runaway inflation, record-high gas prices, surging crime rates, a crisis on the southern border, a fentanyl epidemic, and Marxist Critical Race Theory and woke gender-bending propaganda in school classrooms.
Nancy Pelosi is on record saying she believes voters are so upset that the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade and returned abortion decisions to the states that Democrats will “sweep the Midterm elections.”
Democrats are all-in on abortion in their bid to keep their slim majorities in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.
Democrat candidates and the Political Action Committees supporting them have already spent more than $124 million in campaign ads targeting abortion – about 33% of all their ads.
According to an Associated Press analysis of data provided by the nonpartisan research firm AdImpact, that’s more than twice as much as the next issue topic.
And it’s about 20 times more than Democrats spent on abortion-related ads four-years ago in the 2018 Midterm elections.
Better Call . . . Jane?
The timing of a new Hollywood movie, all about abortion “rights” seemed like the perfect thing to hammer home the Democrat message just ahead of the November elections.
Call Jane was released on October 28 – less than two weeks before voting day.
The film features an all-star feminist cast, including Elizabeth Banks, Kate Mara, and Sigourney Weaver.
The movie is set in the 1960, when suburban housewife, Joy, learns she’s pregnant with her second child.
Unfortunately, there are complications with the pregnancy, putting Joy’s life in jeopardy.
So, Joy reaches out to The Janes, an underground network of women who risk life and limb to provide abortions.
It was heavily promoted by Planned Parenthood, and The View had the actresses on the show to hype the movie.
Box office and the ballot box
The movie puts the limelight on Democrats’ false narrative that Republicans don’t support exceptions for life of the mother, or don’t allow exceptions for ectopic pregnancies.
The fact is, every piece of Republican abortion restriction legislation that has taken effect or is being considered offers both those exceptions.
But that’s not stopping Democrats and Call Jane from fear mongering.
With all of America champing at the bit to go vote for candidates who want abortion-on-demand, for any reason, until the moment of birth and at taxpayer expense, Call Jane must have a ready audience.
Not so much.
No one would expect the Sundance Film Festival movie to compete with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam.
But surely it could defeat the one-night-only Coldplay concert it was up against.
Again, not so much.
Call Jane grossed just $85,000 across more than 1,000 theaters on its opening night.
By comparison, the Coldplay concert – which finished 8th for the weekend – brought in more than $675,000 that same night, or nearly triple what Call Jane grossed over the course of its entire three-day debut weekend.
Speaker Pelosi is hoping turnout is better for her pro-abortion candidates next Tuesday.
