I know it's just that.
You're thinking what's it.
Movie -- been doing.
Here -- -- -- left wingers out there left of land.
At least that's what people think but that's not really the case -- a lot of conservative people.
Lot of moderate people Republicans Democrats have been Hollywood.
It is just a conservative people by the nature of the word itself apparently a little more close to the best they don't go around.
The hot dog and it.
Well in Clint Eastwood took to the stage at the Republican National Convention and mentioned the conservatives in Hollywood a lot of folks wondered.
Where exactly those people were hiding.
So imagine -- reaction when actress Stacey dash yesterday used Twitter to express support for governor Mitt Romney.
She's best known for her 1990s role in the hit movie clueless she was the best friend of obesity it's -- -- character.
And her Twitter feed exploded after she tweeted.
This with a photo of herself an American flag is what you wrote vote for Romney the only choice for your future.
Not long after presumed Obama supporters began insulting -- for her opinions some saying she is -- quote black enough.
And it goes on from there joining us now in -- she's author of -- Racial demagoguery from the seventies to Obama she's got a series of number one best sellers this is just the late -- In a theory -- really congratulations.
Thank you -- you disappoint us how successful she is -- in my country but our.
The Stacey dash is filing a name everybody knows but they know that I know the actress on a lot about movie -- -- okay so this is just an -- example of what she got in response to her tweets saying.
Vote for Romney.
You're an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney you're voting against yourself rice you -- beautiful idiots.
And it went on from there that's that's only know what I can re not so you can read out there and right.
That's how I found out about it that night I got -- -- reading my Twitter feed and saw that we tweets of the bile directed against her.
You know I really admire.
Right wingers in Hollywood they're doing a very brave thing -- can hurt their careers.
But there is no one braver in the world than a black conservative what they go through as a -- -- has seen an Allen west and Condoleezza Rice and Clarence Thomas.
Herman Cain was goes on and on.
Just the vicious actually racist attacks not using the word Chicago or apartments.
Which liberals claim as his racist -- Public and says it no no the and word were talking about here.
And then after after putting black conservatives.
Through this this vicious hazing process -- -- turn around and talk Republicans for not having more blacks in our party or if you stop harassing on the black people might look and see Republicans have a lot of ideas I like like being against abortion and gay marriage unlike the Democrats is it.
I mean is it racist in a way in of itself it and to presume that all blacks would be supporting a black president.
But they have this homogenous way of thinking the end and always Democrats and -- unfortunately a majority of blacks are Democrats.
I'm very sorry to say but I'd like to change that I'd like to change that with my -- to point out that.
I would not say that liberals have been blacks truest -- -- -- think they really they've they've always used blacks to pursue other political hands.
As I describe it was always Republicans pushing civil rights legislation being blocked by Democrats -- five minutes.
Democrats pretended to care about black people -- and they just started slapping the civil rights label.
On causes having nothing's -- with black people and in fact often opposed by a majority -- black.
Okay but it in today's in -- that bid but I think assumption is that democratic policies are better for blacks -- Republican policies because.
Because they believe in affirmative action and they believe in sort of a hand up and a lot of blacks are struggling and lower socioeconomic.
Neighborhoods and they believe that the Democrats are the ones who -- empathetic to that situation not the Republicans who favor the rich that's the line.
That is certainly the line it is absolutely untrue Oprah I mean four years of Obama there was an article going around yesterday on the Drudge Report.
That the forty years of Obama has virtually wiped out the black middle class.
That's just the economic point never be fooled into thinking that what Democrats care about is.
The poor the elderly minorities what they care about our government sector workers.
Heavily unionized well pensions government sector workers who will automatically vote democratic they want the people ministering to the board they don't care about before and as we've had this war on poverty we've had more and more and more poor black people and in particular.
The destruction of the black family -- -- the worst thing that was done to black people.
Since slavery was the -- -- programs surprisingly.
Also from my book.
Blacks on a higher marriage rate than white people did.
Threw -- the twentieth century every every decade.
Year they checked what -- were more likely to be married great society programs -- -- I'm not all falls apart and now you have a 70% illegitimacy rate -- Incredibly destructive more destructive than than any policy Republicans if they -- is racist as Democrats claim they are.
Rate is just stunning and an actual and we talk about a couple weeks O'Reilly which is just an -- and really disturbing number.
I want to ask about this that the issue of race in the book is very timely because it gets into this history of race in race relations in the country.
-- as a political matter and right now as we have a -- black president there seems to be an underlying theme.
Whether it's just a tweet from Stacey dash right it's -- them because she's a black American -- -- would not supporting the black president.
People who feel like they need to be apologetic for no longer for supporting the president because he did make history and they helped make history when they voted for him.
It was interesting -- we -- -- Iraq.
Who is really apolitical he's really different describes -- was more of an independent but he's from Detroit has really done everything he can't help that city he came out he's now.
Obviously seems to be figuring the Republican ticket and came out and said this when introducing Paul Ryan listen.
I'm very proud to say.
That we have.
Had elected our first black president.
I'm sorry he didn't do a better job.
Think basically yeah but do.
That no it's true and that is ultimately the larger point of my book don't.
Don't -- make the same mistake again America more white people voted for Barack Obama that's.
-- 2008 election then have voted for a Democrat -- White people voted for a Democrat for nearly forty years.
So obviously white guilt was operating people didn't like the historic idea.
Of the first black president I would've preferred that it was.
A black president who came out of the American black tradition by the way I mean his father.
Part of the reason we need to hear about this is because -- vote democratic legacy of slavery and segregation.
On something that Clarence Thomas Thomas sole.
Condoleezza Rice actually experience.
He was the son of an immigrant so yes he's half black we're very happy -- -- the first black president.
But don't make the same mistake again it has not helped black people it has not helped America white guilt has never produced anything good.
The book is called -- racial demagoguery from the seventies to -- -- thank you so much Maggie you've seen being here and Coulter everybody.
