Lots of celebrities express their political beliefs regularly and they vary greatly in their actual knowledge and understanding of the issues. Some are well-informed. Others, like Stacey Dash, seem to be completely clueless (get it? She was in that movie. I’m freaking brilliant). A rare black conservative Republican, she actually thinks her party is in favor of same-sex marriage.
Outspoken Hollywood Republican Stacey Dash said that it’s ridiculous to say that the Republican Party doesn’t support same-sex marriage.
The New Civil Rights Movement quoted a Dash appearance on TMZ, in which she said, “We are for equal marriage, we’re not against that, we’re not against that at all. We believe everyone should have the same rights.”
However, as David Badash noted at The New Civil Rights Movement, only 19 percent of Fox News viewers approve of same-sex marriage. The network hired Dash as a contributor earlier this year.
We are for equal marriage, we’re not against that. We’re not against that at all. We believe that everyone should have the same rights…That’s just propaganda, it’s not true. That’s just a certain amount of people, you can’t just throw a blanket over everyone because certain people have one opinion.
One wonders what color the sky is in the world she lives in. On this planet, the Republican party is indisputably against same-sex marriage. Opposition to it was in their party platforms for the last decade. Most state Republican platforms also contain official statements opposing it. Republicans have led the fight against it in state referendums, in court and in every state. This claim is patently ridiculous.
