For those who might not be aware of who Stacey Dash is, you may recall her from such deep, thought-provoking movies such as Clueless or Mo’ Money. Now she’s a fairly prominent contributor for American’s highest rated conservative entertainment channel, Fox News.
Though I have no idea what qualifies her for a role on a supposed “news” channel discussing politics or anything at all important. While I obviously don’t know her personally, almost everything I’ve heard come out of her mouth is just gibberish. This is a woman who just a few months ago defended men when it came to the public sexual harassment of women.
Because nothing says “I care about women’s rights” quite like saying it’s acceptable for men to whistle, harass or say crude comments to random women out walking in public.
Well, now we have what has to be one of her most idiotic moments on Fox News when she decided to try to bash President Obama, while attempting to brag about how great George W. Bush was as president.
As most people are aware, ISIS is known for barbarically decapitating people they’ve captured. And with the massive growth of social media over the last decade or so, it’s easier than ever for these monsters to publicize their atrocious acts for all the world to see.
But long before ISIS ever existed, back in 2002, a Wall Street Journal reporter, Danny Pearl, was beheaded by Pakistani militants. And as we all know, George W. Bush was president in 2002.
Just moments after fellow Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros brought up the tragic death of Pearl, that’s when Dash decided to take her cheap shot at Obama – by declaring no one would have ever been beheaded when Bush was president.
“When George W. Bush was president, the most important thing to him was not to be liked, but to be respected,” Dash said. “And you better believe no one would have been beheaded when he was president.”
Before going forward I feel inclined to point out that practically no one respected Bush. He was a bumbling fool who made Americans look like idiots and he was (and still is) someone who much of the world frequently laughed at.
But for Dash to claim that “no one would have been beheaded when he [Bush] was president” – literally just after her co-host talked about the beheading death of Pearl that happened during Bush’s presidency – is just flat-out embarrassing. It shows that she wasn’t really paying attention to what was being said, she was just waiting for an opening to bash President Obama.
Then again, that’s all most people on Fox News do – just wait out their turn to speak so that they can bash the president about practically anything.
Though even going beyond the obvious idiocy of her statement, she completely glossed over the fact that the reason ISIS exists is because of the failures of the Bush presidency. Republicans can try to pin ISIS on Obama’s foreign policies all they want, but that’s complete bullcrap. ISIS, and the current chaos in the Middle East in general, is a direct result of Bush destabilizing the region by invading Iraq with absolutely no idea what he was going to do once he removed Saddam Hussein from power.
It’s amazing the revisionist history so many conservatives subscribe to when it comes to Bush. Without a doubt, his presidency was eight years of an unmitigated disaster that will cement his legacy as one of the worst presidents in our nation’s history. Just because they like to try to deny that fact, doesn’t mean that it’s not true.
