Lena Dunham, creator of the HBO sitcom "Girls," has stated that the character she plays would view dating a black Republican the same way as dating a Nazi.
The show's second season premieres Sunday night, and Dunham's character Hannah has found a new love interest in Donald Glover of NBC's "Community," whose character is a Republican. In an interview with New York Magagazine, Dunham explains what his character's politics mean for her character, Hannah.
Why make him a Republican?
We liked the idea of a Republican entering their universe. And Hannah doesnt really have a clear sense of why you shouldnt date a Republican; its kind of just like the same reason why you shouldnt date a Nazi: You just shouldnt.
When the interviewer follows up on that phrase, Dunham clarifies that while she is progressive, she does not have the same blanket "ignorance" she is satirizing through her character.
Wait, so your position is that you shouldnt date a Republican?
My personal position is that you should date anyone you want so long as they treat you respectfully and share your value system. So it might be hard for me to date someone who was against gay marriage and abortion rights I dont think I would be attracted to them but I dont have any personal problem with dating a Republican. I do think that Hannah has this reverse ignorance where shes like,If theyre Republican, get them out of my airspace, and that was a fun thought to explore.
Last year, Dunham cut an ad for Barack Obama's re-election campaign, titled "My First Time," comparing a vote for the incumbent President to losing one's virginity.

When I saw her on TV I swear I had NO idea that was a woman..I thought it was The Hobbit
The name Dunham is becoming synonymous with stupid Marxist.
Coming from a tattooed Nazi whore bulldyke...
I'll bet this wit doesn't even see the irony in her 'nazi' comparison.
“My personal position is that you should date anyone you want so long as they treat you respectfully and share your value system.”
In my experience, you can only FIND that in Conservative/Libertarian men!
I loathe Liberal women. Seriously. I do. Waste of human tissue...
The ones I know are all brainwashed and angry . . . and mostly single (gee, I wonder why)
Be chewin’ an arm off then checking into rehab if I woke up to that.
HBO.The same folks who brought us Whores in the City.Figures.
Good thing I already ate my breakfast..YUCK!
As has been stated before...Obama et al doesn’t scare me nearly as much as the fools like these that continue to vote for them and fall for their BS.
The full name of Adolf Hitler's party was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers' Party).
The acronym Nazi was formed from the first two syllables of the German pronunciation of the word "national" (na-tsi-o-nal).
If any party embraces Socialism, it's the democrat party.
Watching “Girls” like watching a septic tank being emptied.
Lena Dunham has age 26 the same body that Jean Stapleton had at 62. What an achievement.
I don’t watch the program, but if this is the character/actress... she ought to be lucky she could get a date at all!
