Twitter Explodes After Black Actress Endorses Romney as the ‘Only Choice for Your Future’
The Blaze ^ | 10/08/2012 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 10/08/2012 12:22:06 PM PDT by Red Badger

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, several even asking if the actress would just “kill herself.”

One man wrote: “This hurts but you a Romney lover and you slutting yourself to the white man only proves why no black man married u @REALStaceyDash.”

As news of Dash’s treatment spread, however, First Amendment-lovers nationwide began voicing their support for the actress using the hashtag #ISupportStaceyDash.

Twitchy captured some of the worst responses to Dash’s Romney endorsement (content warning):

But Dash was apparently undeterred by the cruel reaction, and sent a number of sarcastic responses to the worst offenders, wrote a tweet reminding that she is entitled to her own opinion, and– to top it off– re-tweeted a Romney campaign message.

“Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again…” the re-tweeted message reads.

Here a few of the top #ISupportStaceyDash tweets:


TOPICS: Culture/Society; Extended News; Politics/Elections; US: California; US: New York

4 years of Obama economics have left Black Middle Income families in very bad shape, dealing with higher fuel prices, food inflation, higher taxes, and the 2 trillion the Fed printed, and the stimulus Obama spent is nowhere to be found in that world of reality.

I've had about all of this I can take. Message to all of you socialist, leftist, violence-oriented people who are intolerant of anyone else's point of view: You're all cowards. You sit anonymously at a computer and spew hate, death threats, etc.

Well, stop being anonymous and ACT on what you have to say. Bring it. Do it. I really don't care anymore. Want to kill me for my point of view. What are you waiting for? I am so tired of all of the talk and no action.

If you want to kill someone, then go for it. I have no earthly idea what seems to be hold you back. Cowardice? What is it?

Obama is black when he needs to be. However, he’s the candidate of the real slaveholder party, founded by slaveholder Andrew Jackson.

When liberals controlled the KKK they would threaten race traitor whites when they got uppity about the party’s agenda. It’s the same today; new colors of stupid racist thugs.

Liberalism is all about ‘feel good’. That’s what it boils down to. It makes the haters feel good. Kind of a mental onanism................

Assumes facts not in evidence. I'm firmly convinced that, in many cases, liberals have a time-share plan in operation for functional brain cells.

***...the KKK they would threaten race traitor whites when they got uppity about the party’s agenda.***

After the Civil War, the KKK lynched about 5000 people in 60 years. What the news won’t tell you is that about 1500 of those lynched were whites. And it was not for horse stealing.
