Actress Tweets Support For Romney, Liberals Call Her A Race Traitor
Here’s some more of that liberal tolerance we’ve all come to know and love.
Actress Stacey Dash, who has starred in everything from the 90′s hit Clueless to CSI, prompted a firestorm on Twitter after publicly endorsing Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and then standing by her opinion.
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney,” Dash wrote on her official Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag.
Not long after, presumed Obama supporters began insulting Dash for her opinion, saying she isn’t “black” enough, severaleven asking if the actress would just “kill herself.”
Twitchy has more.
This is the flip-side of the “Republicans are racist” meme the left loves so much. Not only is the GOP, according to our leftist friends, merely the party of old white men but anyone who isn’t old and white and male who supports a Republican candidate is, to the left, a traitor to the gender and/or race.
Because, for many on the left, if you’re a certain color or gender you’re supposed to think a certain way.
Remember back when the Dixie Chicks were critical at some of their concerts about George W. Bush, prompting may of their fans to quit buying their albums and songs? The left carried on as though the public reaction were tantamount to censorship. There was even a documentary made about it.
Yet here we have a celebrity endorsing a Republican, and getting called horrible things for it by liberals, yet somehow I don’t think anyone is going to make a free speech case about it.
Kudos to Dash for speaking up. It can be intimidating even for average citizens to express a political opinion, knowing that it will often inspire some nasty responses from the “other side.” It’s even harder for right-leaning celebrities who face not only possible resentment from their fans but also buck the liberal orthodoxy which dominates their industry.
