Cher says Republicans are trying to "achieve the dream" of white supremacy with regard to Georgia's new voting laws.

Georgia's new state law requires voters to provide a driver's license or state identification card when voting via absentee ballot. The new law also expands early voting for primary and general elections, adds additional security measures to ballot drop boxes, and changes early voting hours.

Democrats have largely been outspoken against the new law, insisting — without any evidence whatsoever — that the new law restricts voters' rights.

What are the details?

On Saturday, Cher targeted Republican lawmakers for passing the new voting law and said that the law amounts to nothing less than "VOTER SUPPRESSION."

The entertainer has never shied away from using her social media platform to address what she feels are social and political injustices.

In a widely shared tweet condemning "immoral" Republican lawmakers, Cher wrote, "VOTER SUPPRESSION. 2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back, Wrap Themselves In The [flag], & Have Gone 2 'Whites Only' 2 [stop] BLK, ETHNIC, & POOR DEMS FROM VOTING & WINNING. IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT [America], Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY'VE [prayed] 4. 'WHITE SUPREMACY.'"

She later doubled down on her insistence that the GOP is only interested in perpetuating the "mantra" of "white is right" after a follower responded, "This is terrible ... terrible for [America] & its democracy. The right to vote shouldn't come with barriers!!! Hope Dems can fight back."

In a mostly capitalized tweet, she later added, "THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY!! IT'S GOP'S MANTRA 'WHITE IS RIGHT' & 'ONLY THE RIGHT PPL SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE.'"

"Why aren't Dems Quaking in Their Boots About The Browning of [America]," she demanded. "I'm Excited. We Are Better Together."
