“Demonizing Someone For Achieving The American Dream Is Unfair”
Stacey Dash, the black actress who sparked controversy on Twitter after – gasp – endorsing Mitt Romney for president (the left responded by calling her a race traitor, among other things) was on CNN with Piers Morgan to talk about the unfortunate episode.
“I chose my candidate by the content of his character not the color of his skin,” said an unapologetic Dash, echoing Martin Luther King’s famous words.
Dash noted that VP candidate Paul Ryan had reached out to her in a phone call, apparently calling her “courageous,” but that self-styled post-racial president Barack Obama’s campaign had been silent.
Dash also said something interesting about the state of class war in the country. She didn’t use the term directly, but she noted that “demonizing someone for achieving the American dream is unfair.”
That’s the ugly secret of the left’s class war. It’s always about distributing other people’s wealth, and limiting other people’s success. Keeping other people from getting “too rich.” But what is the American dream if not the belief that we all have the opportunity to be successful as we want to make ourselves?Tags: class war, intolerance, racism, stacey dash
