Auswahlfeiheit. That’s what JJ Abrams proudly declares he will be using Bad Robot to support in Georgia. What is auswahlfeiheit? Allow me to explain.
Abortion for any reason was originally prohibited in 1939 Poland. But when the Nazis conquered half of Poland in that year, they abolished all Polish anti-abortion laws. They then later instituted a pro-abortion campaign entitled Auswahlfeiheit, which means “Freedom of Choice.” “Freedom of Choice” and “Pro-Choice” aren’t exactly antonyms. Auswahlfeiheit was marketed specifically to non-Aryan women only.
In 1939 after the conquest of Poland, the SS organization referred to as the Reich Commission for the Strengthening of Germandom decreed the following:
“All measures which have the tendency to limit the births are to be tolerated or to be supported. Abortion in the remaining area of Poland must be declared free from punishment. The means for abortion and contraceptive means may be offered publicly without police restriction. Homosexuality [which was illegal under Polish law] is to be declared legal. The institutions and persons involved professionally in abortion practices are not to be interfered with by police.”
In 1943, Nazi Racial Administrator for the Reich’s Eastern Territories Ministry Professor Erhard Wetzel wrote the following in regards to nations conquered by the Nazis:
“Every propaganda means, especially the press, radio, and movies, as well as pamphlets, booklets, and lectures, must be used to instill in the Russian population the idea that it is harmful to have several children. We must emphazise the expenses that children cause, the good things that people could have had with the money spent on them. We could also hint at the dangerous effect of child-bearing on a woman’s health. Paralleling such propaganda, a large-scale campaign would be launched in favor of contraceptive devices. A contraceptive industry must be established. Neither the circulation and sale of contraceptives nor abortions must be prosecuted. It will even be necessary to open special institutions for abortion, and to train midwives and nurses for this purpose. The population will practice abortion all the more willingly if these institutions are competently operated.”
Pro-choice is what JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot now fight for in Georgia.
The Hill reports:
Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams have vowed to donate proceeds from their new HBO series being filmed in Georgia, “Lovecraft County,” to efforts leading the charge against a recent law passed in the state that bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.
“In a few weeks we start shooting our new show, Lovecraft County, and will do so standing shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia,” the two said in a joint statement seen by The Hollywood Reporter.
“Governor Kemp’s ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Abortion Law is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms. Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women,” they continued.
“We stand with Stacey Abrams and the hardworking people of Georgia, and will donate 100 percent of our respective episodic fees for this season to two organizations leading the charge against this draconian law: the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia,” the pair added. “We encourage those who are able to funnel any and all resources to these organizations.”
The Hollywood Reporter noted that:
As many readers of this blog may already know, JJ Abrams company Bad Robot will be producing Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker. According to Wookieepedia:
It’s possible that only proceeds directly resulting from the production of Lovecraft County will be applied to pro-abortion causes in Georgia. But no report currently makes any such distinction. I will update this blog post should new information regarding any such distinction come to light.
Back in March of 2018, PJ Media reported on a tweet coming from Planned Parenthood, which made demands of the Disney corporation:
So Bad Robot has a terrible conundrum before them in Episode IX. If they have Rey get an abortion, then they can effectively end the patriarchal Skywalker line and gain brownie points from feminists and Planned Parenthood. But in order to get an abortion, Rey must first be impregnated. For that to happen, some sort of heterosexual act needs to take place. If either Finn or Poe volunteer for the duty, then that places Stormpilot at risk. Or perhaps Rey will be artificially inseminated by Rose Tico. Let’s just hope Rose puts the taser down before going to work.
The folks more inclined to get an abortion are SJWs and assorted progressives. So perhaps for the first time in human history, we have an entire ideology devoted to wiping out its own progeny off the face of the Earth.
The word for killing another human being is homocide. The word for killing oneself is suicide. The word for killing large numbers of other people from a culture or ideology is genocide. But there is no word for large numbers of people from a culture or ideology wanting to wipe out their own kind. There is no large scale cultural or ideological parallel to suicide. Perhaps it’s time for such a word to be coined.
Some incredibly stupid comments have been made about this blog post recently on Reddit. Since the essentially represent the standard SJW/NPC programming, I figured I’d go ahead and respond to them here so I don’t have to respond to them repeatedly elsewhere.
The first comes to us from JourneymanGM.
Well, this article wasted no time invoking Godwin’s Law.
First, let’s note that Godwin’s Law is about a debate. It states that the debate will always end up referencing the Nazis if it goes on long enough. In fact I reference them immediately. Furthermore, this isn’t a debate. It’s a blog post. So the term is being misapplied here.
Additionally, it’s important to understand that citation of Godwin’s Law has been appropriated by SJWs who seek to use it to shield the reputation of socialism.
The second comment comes from ForceWave-1139.
This has nothing to do with Episode IX.
Except for the fact that JJ Abrams is director of Episode IX. And except for the fact that JJ Abrams’ production company Bad Robot (which also produces Lovecraft County) is working on Episode IX. Aside from that it has nothing to do with Episode IX.
These donations were made because Lovecraft Country was planned to be filmed in Georgia, and it was too late to change filming locations in light of the heartbeat bill.
But the money is still coming from a California based production company. How do Georgians feel about California money interfering in their politics?
As far as I know, none of the filming locations in The Rise of Skywalker took place in the United States, let alone Georgia, so the EPIX connection is incredibly weak, at best.
Bad Robot which JJ Abrams owns is producing both Lovecraft County and Episode IX. JJ Abrams is director of Episode IX. That’s not exactly a an “incredibly weak” connection.
The last paragraph is especially weird because it assumes that 1.) abortion will play a role in the story (there’s no basis for this.
It’s pure speculation on my part. I was speculating on the role that this issue might play in Episode IX.
It’s a kids film, they’re not going to bring in wildly divisive political shit into these films.
Where have you been since Disney purchased Star Wars? “Wildly divisive political shit” pretty much constitutes the entirety of the franchise now.
The most political preaching Star Wars ever got was super obvious shit like “military-industrial complex = bad” in TLJ),
and 2.) if Rey gets an abortion, that’ll end the Skywalker bloodline (she’s not related to the Skywalker bloodline in any way, shape, or form.
Heh. Wait till JJ retcons that.
The only way her abortion could end the Skywalker bloodline is if Ben Solo does the deed with her. If we presume that Lucasfilm isn’t going to make literal rape part of the story of a kids franchise, then Rey and Ben’s hypothetical sexual union would be part of his redemption arc, so terminating that pregnancy wouldn’t make sense as part of the story). Just because a blue checkmark told Disney to do something doesn’t mean they’re going to.
Why not? Disney is complying with all manner of moronic SJW demands.
Sites like “Disney Star Wars Is Dumb” tend to lionize Mark Hamill for his criticisms of how the new movies handle his character,
Have I lionized Mark Hamill?
so it makes sense that this article leaves out how Mark is also planning on boycotting film/TV productions made in Georgia; it would complicate the narrative that “SJWs are ruining Star Wars”, if members of the old guard were themselves SJWs (or worse)!
Or perhaps I wasn’t aware of it until I read your comment about it. So how about if I directly address it now?
Each individual is entitled to do as they wish with their own money. So if Mark Hamill and Natalie Portman want to withhold their own earnings from Georgia, so be it.
But so too am I and everyone else entitled to do as we wish with our own money. Therefore, if Bad Robot is sending money to Georgia to support a political action that I and others do not support, then we have every right to withhold our money from Bad Robot productions.
This isn’t rocket science.
This is a shit article from a shit source. Next time, link to less idiotic sources.
Says quite possibly one of the biggest idiots of all. Remember:
“Profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to express itself forcibly.”
― Spencer W. Kimball
In other words “Well they didn’t say they weren’t going to do it!” It’s incredibly poor logic. They’re asking for proof for a negative. They could just as easily say “there’s no report that Bad Robot isn’t themselves conducting the abortions”, because that is also true. Absence of evidence does not mean the reverse is proven true.
You do realize of course, that accountants keep track of just this sort of thing, right? That financial records of just this sort of thing would be kept?
Regardless, no one is suggesting that Bad Robot is conducting abortions. So that’s a straw man. What I am asking instead, is if any portion from Bad Robot’s Episode IX profits will be funneled to support pro-abortion politics in Georgia. It’s a question, not an assertion. Pay particular note to the word “may” in the headline.
This is why you could have responded by simply offering the IndieWire link to answer my query, rather than have a toddler-esque temper tantrum. I’ve linked to that website myself many times here, and I said above I would update this blog post if new information came in. A practice that the legacy media rarely engages in.
So it appears that the donations will be coming from the “episodic fees” of Monkeypaw Productions and Bad Robot, according to IndieWire.
After Alyssa Milano, Christine Vachon, David Simon, and others called for film productions to boycott the state, Jordan Peele and J. J. Abrams’ production companies have announced that they are donating “100% of [their] respective episodic fees” for the upcoming “Lovecraft Country” to charity. Monkeypaw Productions and Bad Robot will be giving the money to the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Right Georgia.
So, wouldn’t that answer the question that you said is impossible to prove?
As an aside, it’s amusing that champions of high taxes would seek out tax incentives, isn’t it?
An interesting case of synchronicity recently occured. A Twitter account that purports to be a Reylo, which may mor may not be a satirical account, posted the following:
Thanks to That’s not how the Force works for the tip.
