The 2014 midterm elections are upon us which means that political parties are pulling out all the stops and bringing out the big guns. Enter Stacey Dash who continues to stan for the Republican Party, but this time she didn’t just put down the Democratic Party, but Black folks as well.
Dash appeared on Tuesday’s episode of Hannity on Fox News where she discussed Democrats and social welfare programs. She added fuel to the fire with her remarks that blacks are “uneducated” and feel “worthless” due to Barack Obama’s policies.
When asked if electing Barack Obama had helped the minority community, Dash answered, “no, not at all.”
“It still keeps them stuck. They are getting money for free,” Dash said. “They feel worthless. They are uneducated.”
Stacey Dash added that this was actually the intention of Democrats.
“I mean, as long as you are that way, they (Democrats) can keep you under their control,” Dash noted.
Host Sean Hannity gave Dash a chance to clarify her potential damaging remarks, but Dash doubled down by claiming that Democrats have a “plantation mentality” in thinking they can buy the minority vote in exchange for social and welfare services.
The remarks earned an immediate backlash online with some calling Dash an “Uncle Tom” and others using more stern words and colorful language.
Dash, who had been a strong Barack Obama supporter in 2008, but said she lost faith in him, has been who has been working for Fox News as a guest commentator for about six months.
