Actress Stacey Dash Joins the 'Racist Republicans for Romney' Club

Eye Roll 45

stacey dash'Clueless' actress Stacey Dash recently tweeted her support for Mitt Romney in the presidential election. Since she’s not only in the Hollywood scene, but also happens to be black, the reaction to her “coming out” was not kind.

Welcome to the I-support-a-candidate-other-than-Obama club, Stacey! Being called a racist is your initiation. Being a black member, you may also add the insult of ‘traitor to your race’ to your dance card.

For how much Obama supporters talk about civility and fairness, they sure don’t practice it very well. The 46-year-old Clueless actress has been the subject of scorn and even death wishes since her statement in support of an evil Republican (shiver!).

Side note: Stacey Dash is 46? Oh my gosh, she looks AMAZING! And I haven’t been as surprised by someone’s age since it came to my attention that Jim Parsons is 39.

Stacey received spiteful comments along the lines of, “You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” and several people, including a doctor and politically active Democrat in Washington D.C. suggested that she kill herself. 

Unity! Or something.

Seriously, I know people feel strongly about their politics, but how is it excusable in any way to wish death upon another person because they believe something different than you?

This classy lady has taken it in stride, announcing “My humble opinion... EVERYONE is entitled to one,” and Re-tweeting a tweet from Mitt Romney reading, “Women have had enough of â�ª@BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.” 

Don’t let the haters get you down, Stacey. You’re a great example to all of us -- not because you support a Republican, but because you’re not afraid to speak your mind against a deluge of opposition.

Thank you for posting this Jenny, but I would rather it come from the liberal bloggers on this site. How disappointed am I that they dont have the guts to do so.

Everyone has gone crazy, because I have no doubt in my mind that if she was pro-Obama you'd have no problem writing an article about how she's yet another liberal Hollywood type actress who's only voting for him because it's cool. I love that she's allowed to have her opinions but if my opinion differs from yours your followers don't hesitate to call me a stupid mindless lib. I've never once seen you call any of them out. Either way she is allowed to have her own opinions, but in this day and age if you put them out there you have to be prepared for people to argue with you, some don't know any better way to do that then name call.

I am not shocked by this, which is truly sad to say. I am glad that she had the guts to put it out there and then stand up for her rights.

And thank you Bills for making my point. It's not enough that she have her own opinion but because Jenny made a point of making this article instead of writing a different one all the evil godless anti-American libs are gutless... When's the last time you saw an article about every actor and actress and who they're voting for? Because I don't recall one from either side.

Jenny I appreciate you for writing this,but at the same time you left a lot out.  You didn't mention the Mia Love issue at all and isn't that a bigger issue.  I think its more significant that they try to intimidate someone running for federal office with racism than doing it to an actress.  Both are disgusting but Mia Love is running to be the first Republican Black Woman in Congress.  We all know it will be harder for Democrats to make Republicans out to be racist the more diversity we have in our party.  I am proud of Stacey Dash for speaking her mind and refusing to be intimidated.  And yes to your side note she does look freakin' amazing and it'd be awesome if she told us where the fountain of youth is.  I just think at the very least you could have used more examples to show how this is something that happens to people of color that support Republicans.  This has been going on for longer than Obama has been President.  It was in the New Orleans season of Real World that one of the black roommates dogged out a date for voting for George Bush.  Like I said I appreciate that you wrote this but there was a bigger story to tell that you missed.

Wow, she sure had a lot of plastic surgery. She is unrecognizable.

Kristi I love how you are completely ignoring the fact that these were racial attacks.  This blog is about her being black and being harassed because she isn't voting for Obama.  This blog was about a double standard the left doesn't want to discuss.  When you're white other white people don't tell you how to vote or that you're less white because you voted a different way, it happens all the time in the black community.  All you proved Kristi was that this went way over your head.  Jenny gave you one example of the disgusting tweets and it wasn't the worse one either.

This may be specifically about people calling her a racist but it's a part of something bigger. Everyone is so polarized that it's become perfectly acceptable to bash someone because they don't agree with you. Did I say it was okay? No, I said if you put it out there with people full of hatred like they are that's what you're going to get back. We can't do anything about it until people stop cherry picking who they're going to stand up for. If this was a blog about a white actor who was being taunted with they're only voting for Obama because they don't want to be racist Jenny wouldn't have said a word. Whatever you want to break it down to people are being belittled and called names because people on BOTH sides can't seem to help themselves. Just like you tried to belittle me when you said this was way over my head. Another prime example. And for the record, I'm an independent who doesn't know who they're voting for yet. So have fun calling me a mindless liberal sheep.

 I'm team Barrack  all the way but I will not endorse ignorance. If I could I would personaly  apologize To Stacy Dash.

I never understood why people hate on others for their opinions, beliefs, looks, or way of life. As a black woman who knows quite a bit about black entertainment, I know that many blacks don't like Stacey Dash because of what she has done in the past. If Stacey wants to vote for Romney/Ryan, then she by all means should be able to without any judgement. (Anyone should be able to vote for whoever they want without judgement)


I normally don't agree with Jenny, but I loved the last line!!! ("You’re a great example to all of us -- not because you support a Republican, but because you’re not afraid to speak your mind against a deluge of opposition.")
