It was just short of a year ago that actress Stacey Dash led some to believe she had been hacked. Why? She tweeted “Vote for Romney.” That simple show of support led to a torrent of hate tweets and threats, but it also helped launch Dash as a formidable spokesperson for conservatism. Tonight she appeared on “Hannity” to make a case for school vouchers, which are under attack in Louisiana by Eric Holder and the Justice Department.

Gov. Bobby Jindal vows to appeal decision against Louisiana’s school voucher program

  • Clayton Grant

    Voucher schools saved the NOLA school district in the aftermath of Katrina. And they are doing it without the Common Core mindset.

    • Al’s Grandpa ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      ssshhh! Nobody is supposed to know about that. The leftists can only handle so much truth in one 25 year period. Obamacare has already filled that.

    • cajun_2

      And look at the test scores for those kids after Katrina and before Katrina. There is a very significant improvement.
      Nearby, a local high school had a riot and brawl between two rival drug gangs. 15 kids were arrested. Why should some of those minority kids who are intelligent and motivated to get quality education not allowed to attend better schools in the area? Is it because Holder does not want black kids to get a better education?

        Well said, Caj; your Louisiana wisdom will be insightful as those school vouchers get attacked.

        Here’s a pic which captures the shameful essence of Eric Holder:

          To quote da killa “aint dat da troof

          And let me just add..This lawsuit against La’s attempt at voucher program is the 3rd lawsuit against the Jindal administration by Holder and crew. We have a federal judge that, fortunately for us, is strongly protective of states rights and the constitution. He has ruled against the DOJ several times. There is also EPA fight coming up soon. We had 10 years of fight against our voter ID laws which started back in 2003. Once La went to voter ID, the state promptly went republican. THAT is what all this is about.

            Thanks very much, Caj; we are grateful to have boots on the ground, cher.

    As with everything the left does, their hypocrisy is astounding. They talk about ‘The Children’ with one side of their mouths, while with the other they refuse school vouchers and advocate for abortion-on-demand.

      Your comments are on target, Catchance.

      Some would say We Live in a Nation of Hypocrites. Here’s a pic which supports this view:

    What’s amazing here is that the Obama administration is fighting tooth and nail for Obamacare, which is essentially government vouchers people can use to pay for healthcare provided by private doctors.

    Yet Obama fights just as hard against vouchers for people to pay for private education.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      That’s because in education the end goal is almost done. Education is already a single payer system, any thing else is a regression from leftist ideals. Healthcare is just starting the process, vouchers are the hook.

    • Orpheus75

      It’s not about education, it’s about control. He wants nothing to be private. He wasn’t it all Government controlled. they can’t brainwash and control the little chillins as long as they are in Private schools. Look at the Gestapo type tactics they are now taking against children that do things in the privacy on their own property (outside of school). Expelling or suspending them for playing with water or plastic pellet guns in their own front yards, etc.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Now THIS is what “feminism” was supposed to be! Not vagina-wearing costumed clowns, coat-hanger waving death zealots, “traditional” woman-bashing hypocrites, mindless sycophants and stooge apologists for the Democratic Power Elite (MEN! Go figure!), taxpayer-robbing, Slut-Walking nincompoops. THIS.

    • drw

      Read it, thank you. Two issues come to my mind, first, this IS from the odrama/holder attorney general’s office (not really known for their honesty), and second (probably more importantly) the federal government has no constitutional authority to regulate or otherwise interfere with the school system of any state.

      • johnstretton

        This administration is not at all concerned with that outdated concept of Constitutional authority. They are far more concerned with the much longer outdated concepts of tyranny and abuse of power.

      • Orpheus75

        They don’t have authority to interfere in ANY State run issue, but they’ve created that authority over the years. Like the proverbial frog in the pot of slowly boiling water.

    • chewydog

      “For example, according to media reports”
      Now the DOJ is using anonymous “media reports” as basis for fact…lol

  • Spinmamma

    And another blow is struck by the Obama Administration on behalf of poor families struggling to get a decent education for their kids because Holder suspects those evil state administrators are sneakily using the vouchers to do an end run around his strong arm desegregation efforts. Trust goes both ways.

  • Maxx

    She articulated an opinion with reasoned acumen and of course, expect the vitriol against her from the “our way or the highway” crowd to soon follow.

    It takes a special kind of bravery to be a female black conservative in this day and age of vile and disgusting contrarians, that’s for sure. However, Stacey marches on like most other conservative warriors…..fed up with the liberal governance that promotes intrusive government in nearly every facet of our lives and worse, a continuing entitlement umbilical cord Democrats demand from womb to tomb.

    And on a non-related note, Stacey would make a blind man take a second look.

    • Markward

      You sir are being a bad conservative! Didn’t you get VRWC memo 10-222 stating you are to find all women, especially black women repulsive. You are to report to the reeducation center to be your bigoted, racist, evil conservative.

      You’ve summed it up nicely, Maxx, as usual.

      You noted the ❝womb to tomb❞ aspects of dependency via the Dems.

    Vouchers would result in an educated voter base. That’s a liberals worst nightmare.

  • Jack Deth

    It’s very sad, but not really surprising. School Voucher Systems keep coming for votes in the DC City Council. And each gets pummeled and ground into the ground. While Obama’s and countless other Democrats send their kids to PC perfect Sidwell Friends.

    Evidently, Obama needs more Low Information voters to fill the gaps of those finally wising up to Obama care!

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Stacey is beautiful inside and out.

  • BAW

    I had heard that Katrina basically destroyed the public schools in New Orleans (I remember the school buses they hadn’t bothered to use to evacuate people, lined up in the flood waters) and at least initially and in some areas it was a sort of voucher system and individuals who created some new private schools to fill the gaps. That not surprisingly, they turned out to be far better than the public schools they were filing in for. I assume their public schools are back open but if there are better schools that came into existence during their time of need, they should be supported and encouraged not punished. But it’s it typical that when anyone actually tries to do something “for the children” the Democrats try to stop it.

    • Bemani Dog ✓certifiable

      When someone wants to blame Bush for Katrina, I point to the drowned school buses.

    And while Democrats attack school choice, they are choosing to send their kids to the very charter and private schools that other parents what to send their kids to.

    Blunt and refreshing.

  • notenoughtime

    Schools vouchers will save our failing schools and help those students get out of schools that do not put education first. And this in a liberal mind must not happen and must be destroyed.

    Here are the facts:
    The United States almost always in the top 2 for education spending K-12.
    The results have been close to mind numbingly mediocre, at best, when measured by our international rankings in math and science.
    You would think this would be a non-partisan issue.
    The idea that anyone who actually cares about children would block school vouchers is unbelievable. If these programs save a few children, we would be taking a step in the right direction.
    On a side note, it is refreshing to hear someone speaking to an issue without hysteria – thank you Stacey Dash.

    • AudreyPH

      How about our rankings in other subjects, or are those harder to compare because you can’t give everyone the same test in that case?

      • Justwaitinforchange

        A noted by you – other subjects are harder to score.
        There was a study done in 2009 – which is widely quoted by sources on both ends of the political spectrum.

        “Scores from the 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment to be released Tuesday show 15-year-old students in the U.S. performing about average in reading and science, and below average in math. Out of 34 countries, the U.S. ranked 14th in reading, 17th in science and 25th in math.”

        the preceding quote is from USA today — btw
        Bottom line on all this, is we should be in the top 10 to remain competitive with the rest of the world.

        • AudreyPH

          Sometimes I wonder what happens to you in Japan if you’re hopeless at math. (like I was) I know they’re a modern country with various kinds of abilities among it’s people of course, but whenever something is written about education over there, it almost always seems to be mostly about math.
