Sophia Bush Won't Back Down!!! Fires Back At Political Haters!

Sophia Bush doesn't back down from a fight!

As reported from the Quote of the Day, The actress recently appeared on Fox News and said the following:

I will not vote for a candidate who thinks you can ‘pray away the gay,’ I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that he has more rights to my uterus than I do, I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that it’s okay to dump toxic waste in the ocean.

I’m afraid for our country that people like this (current Republican candidates) could even be thought of as the president. I live in a country where I believe all men are created equal, not just wealthy white guys.

I believe all men, all women, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic background, you deserve the same rights. If that’s not where our country is going, then I’ll leave. I don’t need to live here. I’m out! I’ll go to Canada, peace! See you later.

This was met by some very rude comments, including phrases like "kill yourself bitch.

Sophia fires back at her haters with the following:

Gee whiz. I'm just so amazed by how kind people with differing political views are being today! Oh wait. That's not happening. A joke about moving cross the boarder (because I'm half Canadian) doesn't seem to warrant the "kill yourself bitch" replies I'm getting today.
d
I clearly stated that I'm let down by both parties. That I am disillusioned by the political sphere as a whole. And that I simply want this nation to be one where, truly, "all men (and women thank-you-very-much) are created equal." I believe in an America where everyone, regardless of party, economic status, sexual orientation, or religious conviction, can live freely.

THAT is The UNITED States. So why don't all of you bigots and bitchers work on being proud Americans, who lead by a love-thy-neighbor example, instead of promoting intolerance that this country is supposed to have risen above. Seriously

We're proud to see someone stand up for what they believe in and not back down from detractors.

Well said, Sophia!

    I don't really know who she is but she has freedom to her opinion. I have an opinion of my own. You can do what to your uterus as long as you don't kill anybody for it. Republicans discriminate against homosexuals and Democrats discriminate against the unborn. All bigots in their own way.

    Awesome Woman



  3. 3

    I agree 100%. But why was she on Fox News? I didn't realize she did anything poltically (or outside of One Tree Hill).

    Regardless, go Sophia!



  4. 4

    I hope she gets the same reaction people had to Kelly Clarkson. That is temporary anger towards her and then people forget and move on.



  5. 5

    A lot of talk, no substance. I believe we should all be treated fairly and on an even playing field, but at the same time, we're not created equal. Life in general is very harsh. I don't get a sense that she really pays attention to politics, like researching or even watching the debates, which is fine, but maybe don't speak out when you aren't so well informed. It's comes across as a squeaky wheel. I, too, am for women's and gay rights, and while I voted for Obama previously, I am strongly backing Ron Paul this time around. I don't have faith in the two party system, either. No Doubt, Bush = Obama = Romney etc. etc..



  6. 6

    Liberals fired at Kelly, so its time for reps to fire back at Sophia. No one respects anyone from Hollywoods opinion or listens to it for that matter.



  7. 7

    It's possible to disagree in a respectful manner. "Kill yourself" and hateful comments in general hold no merit or intelligent thought and don't deserve a voice.

    Re: NookiesWA – Surely you jest. Hollywood has historically had a huge hand in forming prevailing attitudes in this country and around the world through movies. One actress, not so much, but she has one vote just as you do. You state that 'No one respects anyone from Hollywoods opinion or listens to it for that matter.' The only difference is that the press will write her opinion, but probably hasn't put yours on the wire yet…



  9. 9

    She LOVES murdering innocent babies, of course she's a dumb bitch. This dumb whore NEEDS to kill herself before she has a chance to murder some innocent children.



  10. 10

    good for her! she's awesome!

    Re: Gay Republican – Then why hasn't she been arrested, tried, and convicted? How is she a whore because she refuses to let anyone else tell her what to do with her own body? You're a massive waste of brains and space, yet you have one vote just like she does. So instead of bitching about someone else's opinion, educate yourself and then go do your civic duty come November.

    Re: Gay Republican – You're a shining example, alrighty. The libs just got a few more votes just because, thanks to that thoughtful diatribe; and your first sentence is probably liabel…and I'm not liberal.



  14. 14

    Re: NookiesWA – Yes, that's the American way!

    As a liberal, I said that it was very wrong how people treated Kelly when she tweeted her political beliefs, just as it's very wrong for people to attack Sophia. People have a right to disagree, can even argue their point, but to say things like "kill yourself, bitch" is just plain ridiculous. It also shows that they have nothing of any subtance or luminosity to say.



  15. 15

    Re: @v@ – Thats because society is dumb, celebrity obsessed. We put these morons on a pedestal and and treat them like their tears can cure cancer..all because they look pretty and pretend to be someone else. The world would be a better place if a bomb was dropped on the center of Hollywood.



  16. 16

    When libs ( and conservatives) cant win a argument, they make everyone on the other side an extremist , like miss Bush does here. It easy, lazy and not honest.

    Be smarter sophia, Your drivel is exactly where the elite want you.



  17. 17

    Re: KarrieBelle – Liberals tend to be way worse than that then conservatives thou :P liberals will lie and manipulate you, conservatives just straight up whip it out there. Only reason I dislike liberals is their whole illogical mindset on gun control. I



  18. 18

    absolute and total hypocrite. "I live in a country where I believe all men are created equal" that is, except unborn babies, right? they don't count, heck, "they're not even human beings"! same argument Nazi's gave with Jews saying "they're not human beings". Amazing how much people like her repeat the nazi philosophy. And it's also amazing how selfish women can be, thinking about their uterus instead of their baby. It's not your body, it's someone else's body. And it's not a tissue, it's a human being. The human rights movement is the pro-life movement.

    Re: FoxyandKanga – republicans discriminate against the "unborn" not democrats.

    Re: NookiesWA – THATS why u hate liberals? (gun control) again, your an idiot.



  22. 22

    Re: *truth*hurts* – Did u just compare Sophia Bush to Adolph Hitler? You need to learn how to formulate better arguments. don't be cheap and pull the nazi card out.



  23. 23

    Re: NookiesWA – You've been pretty tame for a while! It's nice to hear from you, as an example of how an idiot represents itself when they try to push their intolerant agenda on others.

    Hollywood has influenced the political spectrum of this country since its inception. To deny it is simply incorrect, not that validity has ever mattered to you. Hell, your precious Ronald Reagen was even a movie star.

    I wouldn't even consider myself a Democrat, but there's nothing Ms. Bush said that should upset anyone. If it does upset you, then it's truly comforting to know that people like you are considered the salt of the earth these days; the hic-ups in our progression as a species.

    Re: NookiesWA

    P.S. If you really wish a bomb would drop on Hollywood (more proof that you're completely batshit crazy!), then why the hell do you religiously, and I mean RELIGIOUSLY, check this celebrity gossip site? There's no way you can spin it, I mean the words "celebrity juice, not from concentrate" are written in letters on the top of this page. How embarrassing! You can't say you read it for the current events, either, because you've bitched about Perez posting that, too. If you really hate celebrities, then please, and I mean PLEASE, stop posting your hate on these pages. It's a win win. I had no idea you'd be on board. I'd be just tickled if you were under the impression that your opinion actually held value to those who read this site. I wish I could see how your mind works and how you attempt to justify the way you feel, but then I imagine how terrible it would be. But, hey, we can't all be thinkers, right?

    Re: Lorili – Typical liberal, attacking any opinion that you don't share. A liberals mindset = "It's ok to have an opinion……as long as its the same as mine"

    Re: NookiesWA – I can agree with that comment…apart from the wtf last sentence about dropping a la bamba on them. Dude.



  27. 27

    Re: *truth*hurts* – If you can't see the difference between a woman independently, safely, humanely, and conscientiously deciding not to carry a fetus to term and the separation and mass extermination of millions of men, women, husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, and children solely because of their heritage then I can't help you.

    I hope you never try to bring up that argument again. I think you know it doesn't work and it was extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Shame on you.



  28. 28

    Re: joethehobo – "people like you are considered the salt of the earth these days; the hic-ups in our progression as a species." You're a minority. You're a minority…YOU ARE APART OF A SMALL INSIGNIFICANT, IRRELEVANT number of people. You drew your conclusion on me when I attacked your minority. You're irrelevant. LGBT thinks they have power as a minority..They don't. The only reason why most people are supportive of you is because the LGBT group is beyond annoying. Maybe you should hear what people say behind your back :P I don't hate gays, I hate annoying gays that bitch and whine over idiotic shit. That makes issues out of non issues. It's also funny, that I seem to be one of the very few on this site that actually sees it and by 'it' I mean how society is sugarcoated and the government constantly puts laws in place to PROTECT the weak and the stupid and the minorities (you), THAT holds back natural selection. Not people with my mindset. People like me is the only thing keeping the world from imploding…….and I just check this site one-two times a day, nothing I would call "religiously" by any means.



  29. 29

    Re: NookiesWA – Typical conservative, attempting to justify their opinion solely because they have one. Everyone is so quick to let everyone have their own opinions, but you lose that defense when it starts to tamper with this country's legislation, racism and homophobia alike. For some reason, one is acceptable in this country and the other isn't.



  30. 30

    Re: NookiesWA – Trust me, people that hate gays are the very least of your worries. Gays are irrelevant, therefore the people that dislike or support them are irrelevant. I'd focus your attention elsewhere. Human beings in general are shit. SHIT. Doesn't matter their race, religion or nationality. (some races more than others cough cough blacks). Hence my extreme lack of empathy towards them people.

    We are nothing but parasites leeching off of this planet killing ourselves and this planet in the process. Fortunately the earth will repair itself. So after we have nuked each other into oblivion or polluted this planet so much to the point it becomes uninhabitable we'll parish, several million years later the earth will fix itself and have the last laugh.



  31. 31

    Re: NookiesWA – I enjoyed replacing every instance of "LGBT" or "gay people" with "black people" in your response and realizing it's almost a verbatim rant of a racist in the 1960's. You're right, though, gay people are a minority, but there are more people who will support me than who will ever support you.



  32. 32

    Re: joethehobo – I'm not a conservative or a liberal ^_^ on one side you have bible thumping retards, on the other you have tree hugging retards that continues to want the government to protect weaklings.



  33. 33

    Re: NookiesWA – I can't blame you: If i shared your view of the world, I'd think it was shit, too. And yikes. Your comment speaks for itself.



  34. 34

    Re: NookiesWA – The entire conservative agenda is "It's our way or the highway." They want to apply their rules to everyone; i.e. abortion, gay marriage, etc. If you're against abortion, fine, don't ever have one! If you don't approve of gay marriage, no worries, it isn't mandatory.

    Re: MVPnis – How did she make anyone an extremist? They proved to be that when she said "kill youself, bitch" simply because she had an opinion that was unpopular by some. She stated her opinion and then she got attacked for it, and then all she said in her rebuttle was what she said before and labeled those who attacked her as bigots. If you have to reduce to such hateful comments, just because someone has different political beliefs, then yes you are a bigot.



  35. 35

    Re: joethehobo – "but there are more people who will support me than who will ever support you."

    Is that why you couldn't get gay marriage legalized in the most gay friendly liberal dominant state in the country? Right, sit down shut up.

    I love Sophia Bush and she should stand by her beliefs. People are always going to put you down no matter what you do, so its best to go down being yourself than to fall as a fake.

    Re: Gay Republican

    Moron… Just because she's pro choice, doesn't mean she loves murdering babies. Women should have the right to be able to abort if a rape resulted in a pregnancy, find out their baby has a congenital disease, and frankly, if you didn't want a child in the first place. Birth control can fail.



  40. 40

    She's entitled to her right to free speech. Of course, she won't get hammered like Kelly Clarkson did. I hope she stays true to her word, I will help her pack if she promised to leave the country.



  41. 41

    Re: FoxyandKanga – The «unborn» as you say are not persons. It's not murder to abort.

    Re: NookiesWA
    You can say whatever you want. DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACTS. You sure as hell aren't liberal. Talking about minorities are irrelavent. You know, a lot of people align themselves with a party or side when what they believe actually points to the opposite. Oh, and nice. Call me a whore? YOU DON'T KNOW ME. Nothing I've said would lead you to believe that. However, everything you've said leads me to believe you are, in fact, a bigot. Quite honestly, you seem like you're maybe 14-15 years old, full of hate, spitting out whatever your bigot parents taught you to believe. "Fact: The average IQ of a perez reader is 25"…You have posted OVER 2100 comments on here. WTF. You must live on this site. Please, grow up & get a damn education. I'd suggest starting with a high school government & economics class.



  61. 61

    Thats because society is dumb, celebrity obsessed. We put these morons on a pedestal and and treat them like their tears can cure cancer..all because they look pretty and pretend to be someone else. The world would be a better place if a bomb was dropped on the center of Hollywood. - @ Nookie - you can't be this retarted! you are one of the main reasons Hollywood actors get this type of attention! you should not be on a site like'"perez hilton' if thats how you truely feel about 'Hollywood' - this is what they call — calling the kettle black!

    She has the freedom to her own opinion, just like the people who don't agree with her. To me, murdering innocent unborn children is just as bad as being a homophobe, racist, etc. I wouldn't mind if this overly opinionated tart went back across the border & left us alone. No one would miss her OR her horribly shitty "acting"!!

Every time i see your comments its miserable shit talking, I can only pity the people tat have to deal with you outside of the internet or maybe you're only a big talker behind your keyboard? Anyways I agree with Sophia not because shes a celeb but because she's right. How can you not agree eith her point of view?? It's completely fair to everybody..would wouldn't everyone agree. Sad.
