OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
Why does it always seem like the dumbest people have the most to say? Barbra Streisand hasn’t been relevant for decades, yet she comments on things she knows nothing about. She, along with a very long list of other washed-up celebrities, loves to quickly chime in on things that don’t concern them. Then they slither back into their mansions, only to reappear when the next pressing issue that we don’t need their opinion on arises.
Well, once again, we have another worthless comment that makes no sense put forward by a has-been actress who nobody cares about.
In an article by Fox News, we see just how out-of-touch Streisand has really become. Texas is in the process of trying to get a voting law passed that would help to ensure election integrity. You can read about that in-depth here if you haven’t already. I would recommend that you do. (This article is from April, when the bill originally passed. It gave the best breakdown of what’s actually in the bill).
Apparently, Streisand thinks that the GOP is trying to achieve world domination by not allowing you to vote through a drive-thru. She made her feelings known in a tweet because she doesn’t have the guts to say it to anyone’s face.
The GOP no longer believes in free and fair elections. This is why they are taking away the rights of voters. They want an authoritarian state.

I may be stating the obvious, but if you need an ID to buy cigarettes, alcohol, get a tattoo, or a slew of other things, shouldn’t you need it to choose who the leaders of the free world will be? Asking for a friend.
Grandma Barb wants this to keep you awake at night. She wants you to know she thinks you’re an awful person for trying to keep our elections as fair as possible. Well, you can suck it, Barbra. You need an ID to vote. It’s as simple as that.
Barbra Streisand took a jab at Republicans this week over their approach to future elections and rules surrounding voting.
The singer accused the GOP of being in favor of an “authoritarian state” after Republicans in key states have begun taking steps to tighten voting rules in the wake of the 2020 General Election, which saw the party lose both the presidency as well as the majority in the Senate.
Her comments come shortly after Republicans in Texas sought to introduce a controversial bill that would have imposed a raft of election changes that eliminate drive-thru voting, empower partisan poll watchers and impose new requirements in order to cast a ballot by mail in Texas. President Joe Biden recently called the bill “wrong and un-American.”
