Stacey Dash told Fox News that many conservatives hide their political beliefs for fear of liberal backlash. “I say ‘so what?… Stand up for yourself. If you are a conservative stand up,'” she said.
Stacey Dash criticized conservatives in Hollywood for hiding their political views from their liberal neighbors.
During an episode of “Outnumbered” Friday, the 49-year-old actress responded to a recent report about Hollywood conservatives choosing to remain silent about their support for Donald Trump because they feared backlash.
“I say so what?” Dash said. “Get a backbone. Stand up for yourself. If you are a conservative stand up. I’ve had enough.”
“They claim to be this liberal tolerant society, but they’re not,” she added. “They are so intolerant.”
The panel then asked Dash what reaction she gets from Hollywood conservatives.
“They say thank you so much,” she continued. “Thank you for your bravery and I want to say to them, ‘Why aren’t you bring brave? Why aren’t you speaking up?”
“It’s hard,” she said. “I’ve been ostracized. I’ve had my agents drop me. You know, it’s difficult, but that’s okay. I don’t care because no one is going to scare me into submission.”
“And I ask everyone else have a back bone. Get some guts. Stand up for yourself.”
