Apparently, Hollywood star and liberal activists Alyssa Milano might need a refresher on what the definition of the United States really means. On Tuesday, the actress was arrested while demonstrating outside of the White House. Her reason for demonstrating was to show Democrats’ support for trying to pass the “Freedom to Vote Act.” The Democrat’s new proposal would seize power from individual states to oversee their own elections for those who might not know. And although that sounds a lot like government overreach, Milano supports it so much she was willing to get arrested for it. 



It’s unclear if the police knew that Milano was trying to show support for the Democrats, but either way – the officers weren’t having it as they quickly silenced the protesters. Still, having the power of social media, Milano couldn’t help but tweet about being arrested for protesting. “I was just arrested for demanding the Biden Administration and the Senate to use their mandate to protect voting rights. Stand with me and @peoplefor and tell the Senate and White House that voting rights shouldn’t depend on where you live. #DontMuteOurVote.”


While Milano focused on her own journey, the actress was there with the People for the American Way. The movement is a left-wing group that TV Producer Norman Lear co-founded. The group’s main objective over the past few months has been to end the Senate filibuster. And given that the Republicans are expected to filibuster the new act by the Democrats, the People for the American Way showed up.

Although Milano and her group of crusaders might believe they are standing up for a just cause, it should be noted that if the act were to pass, it would give the government the power to implement their own voter requirements. Individual states would no longer have power over the government or the elections in which those officials are chosen. 

What’s even worse is the fact that the Democrats put in the act that every state would mandate drop boxes for mail-in ballots. It was this measure that many said cost former Donald Trump the 2020 election due to voter fraud. Yet, both the Democrats and Hollywood support it.
