My, my! Nasty, nasty!


I’m talking about some of the comments some in Twitter nation made in reaction to actress Stacey Dash’s tweet urging people to vote for Mitt Romney. Have you seen ‘em?


Here’s what Dash, the star of the movie and television show “Clueless,” tweeted:


“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.”


That simple tweet was way too much for some supporters of President Obama to take. They took to Twitter themselves, and some proved, once again, why the social medium has the word “twit” in it.


Here are some of the kinder Twitter posts:


“Racial draft: I like to request a trade to send Stacey Dash to the Caucasians to acquire Bill Clinton to the blacks.”


So white folks get that fine Stacey Dash and black folks get the guy who was faced disbarment for perjury, and was charged with perjury, subornation of perjury and obstruction?


Nah, I’d just as soon keep Stacey.


Here are some more anti-Dash tweets:


“Stacey Dash has had a perm since birth. I knew I couldn’t trust her…lol.”


“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot.”


One tweet accused Dash of “voting for white supremacy.” Another said she was “white with a dark tan.”


According to the Web site, “Several other Obama supporters even went as far as to encourage ‘the old hag’ to ‘kill herself.’”


And those were the kinder tweets. Be forewarned: what follows are the nasty ones, and they’re really nasty.


“This hurts but you a Romney lover and you slutting yourself to the white man only proves why no black man married u.”


Sounds like this tweeter was hooked on ebonics.


“She’s an indoor slave.”


“You ready to head back to the fields, jiggaboo?”


“Stacey Dash has probably been thinking that she’s white since her ‘Clueless’ days. All the signs were there.”

And now for what might be the most offensive one on this list:


“So Stacy (sic) Dash buck tooth ass really voting for Romney!! B—ch you black and Mexican….do you think yo bloodline gone survive or something?”


Some full disclosure might be in order here. News stories have identified Dash as a registered Republican. I don’t know if she is or isn’t.


But I AM a registered Republican. Why I am is a long story. It could take up at least 10 columns. But the chief reason is this: I couldn’t be a Democrat in Baltimore and still maintain a sense of shame, because Democrats in this town have none.


That being said, I haven’t voted for a Democrat OR a Republican for president since 1972, and even then I voted for Democrat George McGovern, whose politics put him closer to the Green Party than the Democratic Party.


So I could easily argue that I’ve never voted for a Democrat or a Republican for president, and probably won’t this election. I have no dog in this fight.


And yes, for more full disclosure, I’ll admit that I’m hot for Stacey Dash. Have been for years. Anybody that has a problem with that can meet me in the nearest alley so we can “discuss” it.


But I’m not hot for Sandra Fluke, the feminist activist that conservative and Republican windbag Rush Limbaugh dissed as a “slut” earlier this year.


I defended Fluke then and condemned Limbaugh for being the bloviating blowhard he is. (Republicans and conservatives would really do themselves a service by retiring this guy’s mouth.)

And Fluke – who most certainly is NOT going to vote for Romney – has rushed to Dash’s defense. Here’s what she tweeted:


“So disappointed to see people attacking @REALStaceyDash for voicing her opinion. Disagree politically, but #racist attacks are unacceptable.”


Well put, Ms. Fluke. Some of Dash’s detractors have gone to the first, the last and indeed the only refuge of those that have absolutely no argument: the ad hominem attack.


An ad hominem attack is one against the individual, not against the ideas he or she expresses. If Dash’s detractors have any good arguments for her to vote for Obama rather than Romney, they need to express them.


And if they can’t do that, then they need to shut the hell up.

    “then they need to shut the hell up.” It seems like Gregory Kane has been hanging out with the gentleman from Florida, Representative Allen West.

    Or perhaps Stacey wouldn’t be impressed by a man who thinks with his genitals and brags that he was such big man – twenty-five years ago anyway.

    I don’t hate Stacey Dash.
    IF she spent ONE NIGHT with me twenty five years ago, I would make her forget all about those little stick white boys who smell like wet dogs and can’t satisfy a real woman…………………………….

  5. What I don’t understand is why is this Race so much about the color of one skin it should be about who’s better for the job Must Everything be about Race.

  6. Its funny how a lot of white people and even some blacks are saying Obama is just getting the black vote because he’s black. Put Clarence Tomas up for President and see how many black votes he gets. Blacks have had so many problems coming together on anything in this country the cause of a lot of the races problems. So I’m sorry but I feel like this if your black and vote Republican go ahead and call Micheal Jackson’s plastic surgeon and fade all the way over. C/ya

  7. Stacy Dash?? Folks,I guess I am behind the times cause I never heard of this lady until I read the news that She thinks Mr Mitt is it.I disagree ,because I think Mr Mitt,is an artificial red neck,and a top ten liar.I don’t trust him because he has flipped so much I don’t believe anything he says.Therefore,I am going to wake on November 6,put on some decent clothes,wake my daughter up,convince her to walk the mile with me to the polls,and VOTE to reelect our President.

    Actions by the progressives towards this women is turning off us independent voters. Throw in the nasty Occupy Wall Street crowd and you can see why a majority of Independents are not going to vote for President Obama this time around.
    This election has completely swung in favor of romney

    I am a black man whom nobody will ever mistake me for trying to be white! I just find myself not agreeing with most of the Democrat Party positions so that is why I also will not vote for them!
