Cher's Twitter Rant: Singer Speaks Out Against War In Afghanistan

Never one to hide her opinions, Cher took to Twitter on Saturday night to speak out against the war in Afghanistan and the ongoing presence of the United States in the country.

The singer, who identifies as a progressive Independent, has long been vocal about her distaste for the Republican party and former President George W. Bush in particular.

"I just don’t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican," Cher said in 2009. "I just can’t figure it. I don’t understand.”

Earlier this fall, Cher used Twitter to blast former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle of Nevada. In 2010, Angle had argued that abortion would be wrong even for a young woman who has been raped by her father, because "two wrongs don't make a right." Angle also said rape victims should be counseled to find alternatives to abortion, and thus make "a lemon situation into lemonade." Cher spoke out against Angle, calling her a "STUPID INSENSITIVE B----."

Cher was also outspoken about her dislike for former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. During the 2012 presidential campaign, the singer tweeted, “If ROMNEY gets elected I don’t know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters.” The tweet was later deleted.
