Hollywood Conservative Stacey Dash: Liberal Backlash Made Me 'More Confident'
Actress Stacey Dash has received backlash for her conservative views, but she says she’s not the only one in Hollywood who leans to the right.
This morning on the curvy couch, Dash said Democrats and liberals have taken advantage of show business. But, she pointed out, show business is the “purest form of capitalism.”
Recently, actor Rob Lowe was interviewed by The New York Times, saying the government should stay out of people’s lives.
Lowe said, “Belonging to one party is acceptable, but my days of just ticking the party box are long over. ... My thing is personal freedoms, freedoms for the individual to love whom they want, do with what they want. In fact, I want the government out of almost everything.”
Dash agreed to an extent. She said, “I don’t think the federal government should be a part of everything. I think that governing should be done state-by-state … so that you can tailor your governing to the people’s needs.”
It was two years ago that Dash sent out a tweet supporting Mitt Romney for president. She said the next day, her life changed.
“I had death threats, people calling me Uncle Tom, telling me I didn’t like black people,” Dash said, adding that it made her feel "more confident" in her beliefs.
Dash said coming out as a conservative in Hollywood has not affected her career.
“If you make movies and the movies make money, they’re going to make the movies. For example, if ObamaCare were a movie, they would not make a sequel,” she said.
