Tyler Perry Blasts ‘Unconstitutional’ Georgia Voter Law, Calls for DOJ to Investigate

By Sgt. Michael Connors - 302nd Mobile Public Affairs Detachment - Army.mil, Slideshow Hollywood sends greetings to troops during 82nd Annual Academy Awards. Image army.mil-66455-2010-03-09-180359.jpg, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9732492

“Big Mama’s House” star Tyler Perry spoke out against what he refers to as the “voter suppression law” Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed last week.

The legislation has gained ire from liberal celebrities for requiring absentee voters to use state-issued ID’s to verify their identity when requesting a ballot, restricts early voting hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., makes weekend hours optional, limits the use of drop boxes, and condenses runoff reelections from nine to four weeks.

“As a Georgia resident and business owner I’ve been here a few times with the anti-abortion bill and the LGBTQ discrimination bill,” Perry, who owns a giant Atlanta film studio, remarked in a statement. “They all sent a shockwave through Georgia and the nation but none of them managed to succeed. I’m resting my hope in the DOJ taking a hard look at this unconstitutional voter suppression law that harkens to the Jim Crow era.”

He also encouraged his peers not to turn their backs on the state. “As some consider boycotting, please remember that we did turn Georgia blue and there is a gubernatorial race on the horizon — that’s the beauty of a democracy.”

“Indiana Jones” director James Mangold and “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill are calling for a boycott with the Twitter hashtag #NoMoreFilmingInGeorgia.

“I will not direct a film in Georgia,” Mangold tweeted. “Georgia has been using cash to steal movie jobs from other states that allow people to vote. I don’t want to play there. I’m not telling anyone else what to do.”

When asked about the director’s call to boycott the state, Hamill commented that he “absolutely” agreed with the motion.

Obviously, this neanderthal doesn’t understand a single thing about “honest, legal elections’. As for the snowflakes’ threats to boycott Georgia and stop filming there; I say GO FOR THAT – -Georgia residents won’t have to keep cleaning up their trash!

There is so much Misinformation, Obfuscation and flat out Bald Faced Lies being made about Georgia’s Legislation, that realistically, there needs to be a multitude of Cease & Desist lawsuits being made to individuals, an entire industry, an entire political party, and numerous businesses.
Add Tyler Perry to the list of individuals telling bald face Lies.

They never explain why they say it is bad for voters or how minorities are negatively affected. Everyone has some form of ID. When someone goes and applies for welfare and government assistance they ask for an ID. Why doesn’t facebook or twitter ban these idiots for spreading misinformation.Oh, yes. They are helping them spread the crap.

What the left is telling you is that black people are too dumb or lazy to have an ID card, and can’t be trusted to take care of their own business. In other words just stay on the plantation a be a good servant and they will call you when it is time to vote and maybe give you some freebies and a free ride to the polls. How dumb can one be to buy into that crap?

” The late Nancy Reagan and Pope were ridiculed for their statements on drugs and abortion namely: just say no, and abstain. Another one was ,” you make your own bed and sleep in it.”
How is it all these people shop, work , barber ,visit , worship , vacation AND CANNOT GET TO A VOTING BOOTH?
For Tyler’s concerns , let the state, county, parish, municipality , provide transportation to and from the poll, put them to the head of the line, let them vote , and bring them no home. Suppose they are on vacation, traveling out of state, wedding , funeral , board exam- THEN TOO DAMN BAD.
How about a nice state issued voter ID when they graduate high school, or when they get their drivers license. Then every month, they can call the preceding year and give it, also they can do it when the drivers license is renewed.For those who can’t wait : CourtHouse , police sStation , Post Office .
NO ONE WANTS TO SUPPRESS VOTES ; BUT IF YOU THINK WE CAN HAVE; BALLOTS LAYING AROUND FOR MONTHS , NO FORENSIC BALLOT EXAMINATION, NO FORENSIC VOTING MACHINE EXAM, AND NOT CONDUCTED BY FBI , CIA , NSA,
YOU SHOULD THIONK AGAIN . THE 2020 ELECTION WAS SOUTH AMERICAN THIRD WORLD IN ERVERY ASPECT ; AS STALIN SAID ,” IT’S NOT THE PEOPLE WHO VOTE THAT COUNT; IT’S THE PEOPLE WHO COUNT THE VOTES.”

Duh, we had to present our ID to get our COVID vaccine today. You need ID to get a drivers license, buy alcohol, visit a doctor office, go to the emergency ward, rent a car, get on an airplane, buy a firearm, buy cigarettes, drink in a bar, buy a car, buy a house, rent an apartment, get married, borrow books from a library, get employed, pay taxes, get a credit card, get an internet account, get a hotel/motel room, cash a check, register for a social security card, in many states you can get a State ID card for those who do not drive. To type this response I had to establish identity by providing ID ! I’m sure there are more that I may have missed.
My question is ..What are these complainers doing to make sure those who have somehow have “fallen through the cracks” get the needed ID?

Who in the hell is stupid enough to listen to actors and directors. They are often more stupid than the average citizens on the street. They think because they make films, some not very entertaining, they know it all. A conservative former Hollywood actor who made a success of themselves in the real world says the majority of liberals in Hollywood can’t think for themselves. Parts are written by others, produced by others, directed by others and they think they were the ones who made a film good. Once off the sets most of them, the non millionaires, are lucky to find a job doing anything, they don’t know how to work after play acting on film or stage. Look at the thought pattern of a liberal, they think that requiring ID to vote is racists, but not when you have to show ID to get welfare, to get on a plane, to go into some government offices, for most anything. They don’t want to insure a fair election, they want to give the criminals the chance to steal an election like they did in 2020.

Are these people so STUPID? So thick-headed? What is suppressing the vote of anyone? I still think that ANY voting outside the ballot box, except for absentee voting for military, ill and the like is the only legitimate way to vote. If one can’t get off their arse, grap their DL or State ID, then they don’t deserve to vote.

It seems as though the racism is getting worse by the day. Now the racists are attacking a perfectly fair, pro American voting law change in Georgia, and begging for the federal government to do their bidding. This new law is designed to control and eliminate vote cheating in elections, like we all saw in the last crooked elections won by Democrats. All these people, and especially the Hollywood types are the verey worse racists in the country. They are also the most hard-over anti Americans in the country. Of course they are cheered by the crooked MSM, like the NY Times and the Washington Post, and ALL of big tech.

Great keep the Hollywood leftist out of Georgia.
If it is unconstitutional to require an ID to vote then it is also unconstitutional to require an ID to:

•buy alcohol.
•buy cigarettes.
•obtain a marriage license.
•board an airplane.
•open a bank account.
•obtain medical assistance.
•purchase a gun.
•etc.

The Hollywood crowd is infested with Satanist, adrenochrome drinking, child abuse and pedophilia actors/actresses.
