This Video Of A White Woman Freaking Out Over Georgia's Election Is Going Viral Because It's The Opposite Of What We've Seen Karens Do Lately

I thought this video was going to be an entirely different one.

Georgia had a primary election yesterday, and it was, like many elections this year, a huge, gigantic mess.

Once again, Americans had to wait in long lines for hours to vote.

For context, Georgia has a long history of disenfranchising Black voters. Many of the long lines for this election were in predominantly Black areas.

Y’all it’s 10pm in Georgia and Black folk are STILL in line waiting to vote!!!!! Here are photos taken by @cliff_notes 5 minutes ago. 😡😡@angela_rye @sunny

Soooo...

We've grown accustomed to viral videos of "Karens" going off and saying racist or other deeply problematic things.

So when I came across a video of a white woman screaming, I was expecting it to be another garbage rant.

I was wrong.

Barmel Lyons, a freelance reporter for CBS46, captured this video of a woman going off about the voting problems in Georgia:

BREAKING NEWS: Voters outraged because they can’t vote. @cbs46 Voting machines are down & systems aren’t working all over #Atlanta Some people have left the polls because the line has NOT moved since 6 A.M.

She's being called the "anti-Karen" by people on Reddit.

"THIS IS WRONG!" she screams.

"THIS IS AMERICA. PLEASE, GOD, HELP US. I MEAN IT," she says, and slams her car while doing the sign of the cross.

"THIS IS A CRISIS IN OUR WORLD TO MAKE US NOT EXERCISE OUR RIGHT TO VOTE!"

She continues: "I TWEETED ALL THE MAJOR NETWORKS, SO EVERYBODY, TWEET THE NETWORKS. EVERYBODY, PLEASE. THE RADIO STATIONS, EVERYBODY! TWEET EVERYBODY. PLEASE, EVERYBODY!"

She adds, "I LOVE YOU. I LOVE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. LET'S WORK TOGETHER."

She finishes her rant with, "I'm just sick. I have to go home to take medicine, but I love you," and gets in her car.

This tweet sums it up best:

@BarmelLyonsTV @cbs46 she would like to speak to disenfranchisement’s manager

Now, please go tweet the major networks, everybody.
