Sadly, her run for office was quashed before it ever really got rolling.
On Friday, conservative Stacey Dash announced she was ending her bid for a congressional seat in California.
Never Had a Chance
Dash faced criticism from the moment her run was announced.
Pundits throughout the political world were literally laughing at Dash, saying she had zero chance of winning in the largely liberal state.
Ms. Dash has never been shy about her politics and her openness no doubt has hurt her career with the powers that be in Hollywood.
Why Throw in the Towel?
As we all know, the political world can be heartless more often than not.
After her announcement, Dash no doubt started to see just how muddy the waters can be when you dip your toes in the political pond.
Almost from the moment she announced she was running, she was lambasted with attacks on social media.
Dash quickly realized the criticisms received in a political race are far worse than any bad review she ever received for a TV show or movie.
Ms. Dash stated, “At this point, I believe that the overall bitterness surrounding our political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning, and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of my family.”
She continued, “I would never want to betray the personal and spiritual principles I believe in most: that my God and my family come first.”
Why Is She So Dangerous to Liberals?
If Dash were able to win a seat, she would have been a severe threat to liberals in California.
1- She is an African-American.
2- She is obviously female.
These are two demographics liberals constantly preach are abused by Republicans.
It is tough to make that case stick when you have new blood in the party that covers both of those demographics.
Was She Threatened?
This is pure speculation, but Dash more than likely received some type of threat or verbal attack that made her take a step back from her political dreams.
We have all seen just how nasty liberals can be when they don’t get their way.
All one has to do is take a gander at the threats aimed at Trump during his presidential bid to realize just how sick people are.
As a matter of fact, dig a little deeper on Dash’s timeline and you can see some pretty nasty tweets that were sent her way for merely being an open conservative during the presidential election.
It is truly sad to see her end her bid, as her voice would have been a welcome presence in Washington, especially coming out of liberal California.
