What do black people, old people, poor people and students have in common? Sarah Silverman says in her latest YouTube video that “lawmakers are trying to fuck you in your assholes” because of voter ID laws for elections. Crude, offensive jokes aside, she explains to viewers that these laws are brand new and “super fucked up” because they make it hard for specific groups to vote, especially the aforementioned, who generally support President Obama. Silverman encourages viewers who don’t have the proper ID in states that have voter ID laws to get them as soon as possible before the November 6 election.
Silverman’s “Let My People Vote 2012” video is one of many viral videos popping up in the days leading up to the presidential election. Since she uploaded it last Thursday, it has garnered nearly 2 million views.
