Another has-been actress is attempting to claw her way back into relevance by speaking out against a Republican policy. The only thing that makes this time noteworthy is how it demonstrates the utter hypocrisy of the left.
Actress and prominent leftwing activist Debra Messing just called for Republican officials to be arrested for voter ID laws, Breitbart reported. The former “Will and Grace” star called lawmakers “brazen” and “disgusting” after they revoked Delta Airlines’ tax breaks over their protest of the laws.
“THIS IS SO BRAZEN. It’s disgusting. The @gop in #Georgia need to be arrested,” Messing tweeted Saturday. She made her outrageous claim while sharing another tweet with a Washington Post news story about GOP lawmakers rescinding a tax break on fuel for the Georgia-based airline.

One Republican lawmaker admitted it was because of Delta’s outspoken opposition to GOP Gov. Brian Kemp’s election security measures passed last week. The law and the legislature’s subsequent action against Delta didn’t sit well with Messing who kept retweeting commentators’ charges that the law was voter suppression.
Following the 2020 presidential elections, over 300 legislatures throughout the country have passed measures that would shore up election integrity. However, Georgia has been specifically and viciously targeted by woke corporations as the law is mischaracterized as voter suppression.
Companies like Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, and even Major League Baseball have all come out against the law. On Friday, the league announced that its 2021 All-Star game would be moved out of the Atlanta metropolitan area because of the new law.
Corporations are eager to meddle in government affairs that don’t impact their businesses at all. However, when lawmakers then remove the goodies previously bestowed from that same government, suddenly they and their supporters like Messing have a problem with it.
Poor Messing hasn’t been relevant in decades, but she joins a cohort of other leftist starlets eager to reclaim a sliver of the spotlight by spewing their radical views on Twitter. Unfortunately for her, even the outlandish calls for arresting Republican lawmakers won’t have much of an impact in that direction. Leftist actresses past their shelflife are a dime a dozen on the platform — just ask Alyssa Milano.
