Celebrity Backlash

     The new liberal practice of villifying any and all people of celebrity status who come out against President Obama is unsettling and strangely Orwellian. Actress Stacey Dash is the latest to come under fire by the liberal media for tweeting her support for Mitt Romney. Dash tweeted "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future," after which she received such responses as "Kill yourself," and "You poor beautiful idiot."
     Dash has been called such names as Aunt Tom, Oreo, and others I can't post here. Dash is not the first to go through this Hollywood hazing process. Cheryl Ladd, Stephen Baldwin, Tom Selleck, James Caan, and Clint Eastwood, among others have been castigated for coming out in favor of conservative candidates.
     What makes all this so ironic is these are the same people who scream "tolerance."  These are the same folks who descry others for their lack of acceptance for opposing views, when theirs is usually the most outlandish and displeasing to the majority of Americans.
     There is an old saying "Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones."  Certainly, liberals live in glass houses.  Their positions are usually the most unsupported of all positions among most Americans. For this reason, liberals should be the last to point fingers and engage in name-calling, yet, of late, they seem to be the first.
