Stacey Dash, the “Clueless” actress and conservative commentator who just took the first steps toward a run for Congress, may want to update her website.
In 2016, Dash launched Dash America, a site for what she described as “an exhilarating political movement that focuses on unity, faith, family values, and feminism.”
Unfortunately, the site was down as of Tuesday morning. A spokeswoman for Dash said she would investigate.
Visitors curious about her run for a California Congressional seat were greeted on Tuesday by this uninspiring announcement:
The site may be down, but what of Dash America, a movement that Dash said in a June 2016 blog post would include “a return to Reagan’s Hollywood, a time when movies were pro-America, pro-freedom, and pro-family values”?
Dash has pulled papers to seek the Republican nomination to run for the 44th Congressional district, which is currently represented by a Democrat, U.S. Rep. Nanette Barragan. The district is 70 percent Latino and leans Democratic.
Dash wrote when she launched Dash America that “Liberals sell us cheap fictional freedoms, while stripping away our true God-given freedoms and liberty. Women are told empowerment means being a victim and are coerced into subscribing to the paltry progressives’ definition of feminism. Minorities are told that the only way we can make it out of poverty is to accept handouts.”
She added: “But I don’t buy into any of these lies. … We are a nation of many races and backgrounds, but we’ve forgotten about unity. Let’s re-forge our unity through freedom, opportunity, and education regardless of race.”
