Fox News Thinks the Oscars Were Too Liberal

Stacey Dash – who was once best known, ironically, for starring in “Clueless” – is, as you may know, a Fox News contributor these days. This morning, Dash and her cohorts from “Fox & Friends” gathered to discuss last night’s surprisingly political Oscar ceremony, which included host Neil Patrick Harris joking about the whiteness of the event and John Legend and Common’s moving acceptance speech about the timeliness of “Selma” in light of today’s struggles to achieve racial justice.


And of course, to the ire of Dash and her Faux Newsian “Friends,” Patricia Arquette’s now famous and rousing call for equal pay for women:

“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America!”

Dash was having none of it.

“I was appalled. I could not believe it,” she said, speaking about the overall political tone of the night. “First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.”

She then stated she agreed with “Mr. Trump” – always the sign of a critical thinker – in yearning for days gone by, when no one made a fuss about things like racial and gender equality at the Oscars.

“I miss the glamour. The elegance. The class. The majesty of the Oscars.”

The group went on to complain about "American Sniper" not winning pretty much all of the Oscars ever, with Dash saying the film was “the most beautiful film [she’d] seen in a long time.”
