Entertainment News Bashes Conservative Actress Stacey Dash

It’s not Dash but Access Hollywood, E! trolls who are ‘clueless.’

Apparently the celebrity suck-ups at Access Hollywood and E! are not fans of those few celebrities who actually think for themselves. After Patricia Arquette’s speech at the Academy Awards condemning the supposed “wage gap” and inequality of women in the U.S., she was met with a standing ovation from the crowd and fawning support from the liberal media for her on-stage comments. But not everyone in Hollywood agreed with Arquette's sentiments. 

Fox News contributor and conservative actress Stacey Dash, of “Clueless” fame, refuted Arquette’s take, saying on Fox & Friends, Feb. 23, “I was appalled, I could not believe it. First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history.” She continued, "In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights." 

Of course that’s not what an actress is supposed to say, and Access Hollywood writer Erin O’Sullivan let her know that, writing: “In today's "are you even serious right now?!?" news, Stacey Dash continues to prove she is still ‘Clueless.’”

O'Sullivan continued:

Stacey may be "appalled" by the idea that women deserve to receive the same pay as men for the same job, but the Oscar winner's speech was met by an enthusiastic, fist-pumping "HELL YES!!" from Meryl Streep in the Oscars audience.

Well, if Meryl Streep was on-board, it must be gospel! Unfortunately, it’s far from indisputable. The left’s “77 cents on the dollar” talking point is simplistic nonsense, failing to take into account crucial factors

Meanwhile O’Sullivan had nothing but nice things to say about Arquette, whose speech she called a “passionate fight for equal rights.”

Natalie Finn at E! also displayed her petty scorn for Dash, writing, “Pretty sure Arquette didn't say it's time for women to get some rights …” before giving Dash a history lesson on the wage gap. The Huffington Post and Think Progress joined in the scolding and also repeated the same, old, tired statistics.

This is not the first time Dash has come under fire from the typically rapturous media. In 2012, she “outed” herself as a conservative by endorsing Mitt Romney for the Presidential election. She was met with racist, sexist and hateful comments on social media for not prescribing to her peer’s collective viewpoint. As she continues to be an outspoken critic of Obama and the hypocrisy in Hollywood still gets liberal hate to this day.
