What is wrong with people in America? What happened to the right to freedom of speech and freedom of choice? This past Sunday, October 7, Actress Stacey Dash officially endorsed the 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney through her Twitter account, in few tweets. In response to one particular tweet of Stacey’s endorsement of Romney, many of her “followers” responded with some extremely harsh and unnecessary criticism, disgusting racial epithets and even some calling for her to commit suicide. What the hell are people thinking? Stacey was attacked for her political choice. What made it worse is how people assume because of Stacey’s color of her skin, she is expected to support President Barack Obama. How it that fair? Stacey was later personally contacted by Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan through a phone call. During their conversation, Congressman Ryan thanked Dash for supporting the Romney-Ryan campaign ticket and told her she was brave for coming out the way she did. However the abuse that Stacey’s receiving is really unacceptable and appalling. Watch a recent interview with Stacey below…
After experiencing a horrible wrath and fury on Twitter fueled by racially explosive language, Stacey evoked Martin Luther King Jr. this past Tuesday, October 9, during an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN (seen above), to explain why she’s supporting Mitt Romney for President. Stacey posted this tweet, “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney,” along with a photo of herself with an American flag.
Piers was being a douche bag and introduced Stacey as “the most controversial woman in America” because “she had the audacity as a black actress to vote for Mitt Romney.” Stacey said that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and she only used her platform to exercise her “First Amendment right as an American citizen” to say publicly who she was voting for. Stacey told Piers Morgan the reason why she picked Romney, “I chose him not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.” She elaborated showing resolve, “I don’t feel offended. I just feel that, you know, as a country, this is my choice. This is the man [Romney] I want to lead my country.” However, Stacey said that getting bashed on Twitter had “saddened and shocked” her. She also said she really doesn’t understand why her tweet caused such an uproar. But plenty of Twitter users also came to her defense.
When Clint Eastwood showed his support for Romney at the Republican National Convention with his empty chair speech, no one said a word about it and Pres. Obama even jokingly replied with a tweet saying the chair was already taken. Did anyone tell Eastwood to go kill himself? No, they didn’t. Stacey isn’t the only one in Hollywood who has voiced their support for Romney within the last few months.
Back in September 2012, well known actor Chuck Norris posted a YouTube video on warning Americans not to re-elect Pres. Obama. Chuck said, “Our great country and freedom are under attack, we’re at a tipping point and possibly our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course our country is headed. We know you love your family and freedom as much as Gena and I do. And it is because of that we can no longer sit quietly or stand on the sidelines and watch our country go the way of socialism or something much worse.” Chuck quoted former President Ronald Reagan as saying that “freedom is never than one generation away from extinction.” Further expanding on Reagan’s words, Gena added that, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into 1,000 years of darkness.” Actors like Jon Voight, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jeff Foxworthy, Kid Rock, Cindy Crawford and Ted Nugent are among several celebrities that have endorsed and/or donated to Romney’s campaign.
As for other African-Americans who feel obligated to only vote for Pres. Obama simply because he’s black man. Stacey advises them to do their “homework” and educate themselves about both candidates, “Do your homework. Look at your country. Think about the next four years of your life. Also, look at Mitt Romney’s track record. As a CEO, he has excelled. As governor of Massachusetts, he did quite well. And listen to what he says, I believe him and I believe he deserves a shot.” Ironically, Stacey is a former Pres. Obama supporter who had voted for him in the 2008 elections, she told Morgan that she decided to switch parties after seeing Romney on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Romney also said he would not get rid of every aspect of President Obama’s health care reform law.

This intelligent and successful black actress speaks out and all hell breaks loose. I am still wondering why? It appears the Democrats and Republicans will throw fire bombs at anyone who doesn’t agree with them, until they all snuff themselves out. If you don‘t agree with any of the parties then you’re the enemy and you must be destroyed. It’s just crazy. We are all NOT going to agree on whose the best candidate. I really wish more intelligent actors and people in the public eye would stand up for what’s right and not be afraid to endorse Romney-Ryan 2012. Bravo to you Ms. Dash! Good for you for supporting whatever person you feel is right for the job. I can name three major reasons right now, why I personally refuse to vote for President Obama.
First, is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Second, is the super secret NWO style Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) world take over. Last, is the CISPA like Cybersecurity Executive Order. But I know my choice and reasons are not going to be liked by many people and I am cool with that. I am also not going to smear those who want to keep Pres. Obama for a second term, cause it’s not cool. What do you think about the harsh criticisms Stacey received. Were they fair?
