Sarah Silverman mocks Voter ID laws in profanity-laced video

Sarah SilvermanComedienne Sarah Silverman is out with a vulgarity and profanity-laced video mocking Voter ID laws.

The video continues the usual canard that such laws discriminate against black people, the elderly, students and the poor.

“Guess what you all have in common?” Silverman asks, implying that people in these categories are unable to afford or obtain the necessary photo identification to vote. “Lawmakers are trying to f**k you in you’re a**holes.”

She portrays the need to have such identification as an unnecessary solution to what she calls “f**ked up laws” that solve a nonexistent problem – namely voter fraud.

“The are designed to make it difficult for specific people to vote – black people, elderly people, poor people and students,” she says, with pictures from old TV sitcoms like the “Cosby Show,” “Golden Girls,” “Welcome Back Kotter” and “Rosanne” hanging over her shoulders.

Such laws are designed to help rig the election for Mitt Romney, Silverman implies, suggesting most people in these groups would vote for the President.

She mocks the idea of voter fraud, again suggesting it doesn’t happen.

“No photo, no voto,” Silverman says. “I’m onto your shenanigans.”

The video takes a vulgar turn when an actor portraying a veteran who lost his legs in action says: ”Well, I have a purple heart.”

To which Silverman replies referencing female bodily functions connected with what a person gets when they leave the military.

“This attempt to get rid of voter fraud is in fact the only voter fraud taking place,” Silverman says before showing a clip of Pa. state Rep. Mike Turzai (R) saying that his state’s passage of a Voter ID law will ensure Mitt Romney will carry the state.

However, even with the law, polls suggest the President still leads Romney in the heavily Democratic state.

“In Tennessee students will no longer be able to use their student IDs to vote, but get this, gun owners will be able to use their firearm permits to vote,” Silverman says, missing the apples and oranges comparison she just made considering a firearm permit is a legal document and a student ID is not. “What a great time to be encouraging our young people to go out and get a firearm license don’t you think?
“It’s just like so American.”

Silverman then concludes telling people who live an “voter-suppression states” to get a state-issued Photo ID while mocking the 2nd Amendment.

    Just another poor ignorant person that does not care if there is voter fraud or not, likely she believes in it since she does not care how she talks. More like an uneducated little child. Sorry for her, for sure.

    She’s vile. Just moved in with my boyfriend who is a liberal and he has a few of her books on our now shared bookshelf. I keep them as far away as possible from mine.

  3. DR says:

    Well someone needs to speak out against this blatant attempt by Republicans to steal the election. They did it in 2000, and are trying to do it again in 2012.
