Stacey Dash wonders if Nazis have good hearts even though everyone else knows they don’t
Dash agrees with Trump's comments about "good people being on both sides."
During a recent interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Stacey Dash sparked headlines because she blurted out that she was a “‘Clueless’ person” in response to a question from Melber about movies, but the real story is her comments about Nazis and Charlottesville.
Melber asked Stacey Dash, who is running for Congress out of California’s 44th District, if she agreed with Donald Trump’s contention that there were “good people on both sides” at the Charlottesville neo-Nazi rally that ended with counter-protestor Heather Heyer being fatally run down by a neo-Nazi driver.
“I think he’s absolutely right,” Stacey Dash responded, in reference to Trump’s remarks about the Nazis. “There were two extreme sides. And here’s what it boils down to: Our right. They had a right to assemble. Both sides had a right, but they were both extremes.”
It should be noted that only one side killed a member of the other side.
Dash continued, “I’m not here to judge, the only one who can judge is God. Do I know every person in the neo-Nazi party, if they have a good heart or not? No, I do not. Do I know every member of a gang whether they have a good heart or not? No, I don’t. Do I know every man in prison, if he has a good heart or not? No.”
Running for Congress
Stacey Dash officially filed her paperwork to run for Congress in February. The Clueless star is running under the slogan “Dash to DC” for the seat currently occupied by Rep. Nanette Barragán. California’s 44th Congressional District has been a Democratic district since 2012 and includes North Long Beach and Compton, according to The Hill.
Considering the fact that the district she’s running in voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, this is going to be a hard, if not impossible, sell for Dash. After all, she was even a Fox News contributor for a while.
