The flavor of today’s post is born of my personal opinions, and should be accepted or denied as you wish.
When I post a statement made from somebody who makes a point that I agree with, that never means I am endorsing the individual person who made the statement, unless I say so. My point is in the meaning of the words, not who makes it.
I have absolutely no knowledge of actress Stacey Dash. It matters not at all. Hollywood and show business in general is a Gestapo like environment where participants must always fear for their career if “just maybe” they don’t agree with every fiber of the far left liberalism that rules show business. Stacey seems to say what she wants, and would like to have the rest of Hollywood get some backbone and stand up for what they believe as well. She seems to think that Hollywood has many”closet conservatives” (my words), who fear for their livelihood. While they have good reason to fear the elitist power mongers of Hollywood, at some point, we all have to stand up and make ourselves heard.
I believe that while she is talking to Hollywood, she is speaking to all women.
Stacey Dash: Actress Tells Fellow Conservatives in Hollywood to ‘Get a Backbone’. Dash told Fox News that many conservatives hide their political beliefs for fear of liberal backlash. “I say ‘so what?… Stand up for yourself. If you are a conservative stand up,'” she said. America stands at a crossroads. Political elites have divided our country and seek to pit us against each other. Liberals sell us cheap fictional freedoms, while stripping away our true God-given freedoms and liberty. Women are told empowerment means being a victim and are coerced into subscribing to the paltry progressives’ definition of feminism. Minorities are told that the only way we can make it out of poverty is to accept handouts.
But I don’t buy into any of these lies.
And that is why I have launched my new website and movement – Dash America. I believe that instead of allowing others to divide us and hold us down, we must empower one another to rise up and unite for the sake of our great nation and the values that have made us the strongest country in the world, a true beacon of freedom for all people and all nations under God for centuries.
Dash America is an exhilarating political movement that focuses on unity, faith, family values, and feminism.
First, I believe we need to cling to the motto and founding principle of the United States- E Pluribus Unum, Out of Many, One. We are a nation of many races and backgrounds, but we’ve forgotten about unity. Let’s re-forge our unity through freedom, opportunity, and education regardless of race.
Next, I believe women are powerful, intelligent, and sexy. Women keep us in the present, they raise the next generation, and they guide the future of society. We deserve respect and admiration for these traits, and must use them as part of our feminine toolbox.
Finally, I believe we can and must return to Reagan’s Hollywood, a time when movies were pro-America, pro-freedom, and pro-family values. We are going to make that happen by writing, producing, and distributing films that showcase what is great about America and show us how to achieve its potential.
The above words of Stacey Dash, are those of a genuine feminist. Not a phony like Hillary Clinton who merely uses clichés of “why you aren’t being allowed” to succeed, in an effort to gain power over you, not for you. The Hillary’s of the world need you to live with a feeling of hopelessness. Otherwise, they would serve no purpose and have no power.
If Stacey believes what she says, then she truly cares about empowering black Americans or anybody who feels left out. Unlike those so-called black leaders who only want to keep black Americans feeling “powerless and angry”, so they can derive their own power (and riches), at the expense of those they pretend to be helping.
I know not if Stacey supports Donald Trump. If she does than we would disagree on that subject. It is her opinions and the words she uses to describe them, that are important here.
Do not confuse Dash America with Dash American which has no relationship with this subject or Stacey.
As is always the case with non-photography posts, this one will be moved to approximately August 16, 2015, which is where most articles of this sort reside.
