Stacey Dash on Romney: ‘I Chose Him Not By the Color of His Skin But the Content of His Character’
CNN via NewsBusters.org ^ | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 10/09/2012 7:37:57 PM PDT by RatherBiased.com

As NewsBusters reported Monday, African-American actress Stacey Dash was thoroughly lambasted on Twitter for expressing her support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

During an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan Tuesday, a defiant Dash marvelously said, "I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character" (video follows with transcribed highlights):

STACEY DASH: I just feel that as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country. It is my right as an American citizen. It’s my Constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for President. And I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character. 

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Have you heard from Mitt Romney at all?

DASH: Yes, well not Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan.

MORGAN: Paul Ryan rang you today?

DASH: Yes, he did.

MORGAN: What did he say?

DASH: He said, “Thank you so much for your support,” and that I was brave, and they support me, and I thought that was so generous and kind. You know? Lovely. Really

Lord help her, the left is going to kick her out of being "black".

We need an "underground railroad" off the liberal plantation.

No surprise the ABR crowd goes right to character assignation of anyone who challenges their emotionally hysteric world view.

I know a lot of blacks who aren’t happy with Obama, and I think Obama knows it. This is why his supporters all piled on Stacy because they know if too many blacks speak publicly about supporting Romney, the preference cascade will start. If 15% of blacks support Romney and another 10% stay home, it’s lights out for Obama.

Ryan dated a black girl once, right? Hopefully this isn’t the first time his wife is hearing about this phone call. ;-)

“....assignation......”

Did you mean to say assassination? Because I think assignation alludes to some kind of sexual debauchery or something. That may not be precise but it’s at least inside the ball park. Just asking. Inquiring minds want to know.....’er somethin’ like ‘at.

I was close, but I don't think I quite get a cigar. World English Dictionary assignation (ˌæsɪɡˈneɪʃən) — n 1. a secret or forbidden arrangement to meet, esp one between lovers

I’d pay you 1K (for reals) if you make it so that I never have to see Pelosi, Helen Ross, or Debbie Stabenow again.

They’ve given me a condition called ED.

How sad is it when a candidate for Vice President has to call a celebrity and tell her that she’s “brave” for publicly supporting his running mate? In the United States of America, you now have to be “brave” to say, “I’m for the Republican candidate.” So much for freedom of speech. So much for tolerance.

Coming from a large family of black Dems, I'd say you're right, except that the percentages will likely be reversed.

As bad as Obama is, Romney probably won't get more than ten percent of the black vote. I think McNuts got about 8%.

Voter enthusiasm among blacks (and every other Obama constituency except abject Communists) has pretty much cratered. He's going to get wiped out in this election. I don't think it's even going to be close.

No, you knowing every detail of every TV show with any so-called pornographic content, every woman who ever took off her clothes and countless other details of the porn industry means you must spend a lot of time looking for it. Accusing me of something with no basis isn’t going to camouflage that.

If you think what Stacey Dash has done is porno, then you truly haven't been 'around the block'. The photos I've seen of her aren't much racier than what you'd find in a Victoria's Secret magazine.

You are the one defending it, remember. You argue like a leftist. Accuse those you don’t agree with of being what they oppose.

shameless.

All Ms. Dash was doing is simply putting to work what one Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said so many years ago that safe to say, the liberals have FORGOTTEN, about the “content of one’s character.”

I'm curious as to why you only replied to me and not anyone else who posted to you?

Just because I googled her name?

I was thinking more about the list of cable shows you mentioned a couple of weeks ago describing all of their objectionable content in detail. I had never even heard the titles of any of them. Then there were all the posts you had pulled on the Japan Tsunami threads.

You are the one defending it, remember.

What post do you see that in?
