Dr. Angela West Speaks Out

By: Dr. Angela West

Dear Facebook Friends:

First and foremost, I have been married to Allen West for over 23years. We have NEVER had a bout of violence. I am a wife, mother and businesswoman. During my marriage we have together accomplished a great deal, we married in graduate school and progressed through our professions. I have been published and travelled throughout the world. Both of our daughters are talented in their own respects with the eldest taking two beauty titles in the recent past. The Allen West that we (Aubrey, Austen and myself) know, is very intelligent, well educated, speaks several languages, well travelled, and tireless in his quest to make a difference in this world. We, as a family , volunteer, mentor, and give of our time, effort and personal treasure.

I know that many of you have seen the advertisement put out by Patrick Murphy ‘s campaign or his father or his campaign manager or ………. It really does not matter who put it out from his camp, it was and is offensive. Take a look at the stereotypes:

. A hint of gleaming gold between a gap toothed smile;

. A boxing clad Allen West (he does not box) punching out not one but two white women —- one old and one young (both white).

. Stealing the money from a crying, helpless Black man and his crying helpless son (Really? — That might just be the way that old Tom Murphy would like to see most Black men —- crying and helpless.)

. Then finally, the money shot which is the most vulgar of all.

So, as you know, Allen was interviewed on Fox News this morning , during which he asked an important question: Where are the Black leaders who have no compunction protesting what they feel is considered “racism”? Well, here is a real gem:

NAACP spokesman Hillary Shelton said he watched the ad several times, specifically looking for the concerns raised by West, and saw nothing.

“Racist is not a term I would utilize to sum up this commercial,” Shelton told The Huffington Post. “It looks like a traditional, political, partisan commercial.” 

“The language utilized doesn’t present Allen West as a stereotype of an African American,” Shelton said. “The ad has him looking very well groomed, a serious look on his face and he’s wearing a suit. The only thing superimposed is a boxing glove as a symbolic analysis of his policies being inconsistent with the values of retirees, women and African-American families.

NO WONDER WE HAVE SUCH PROBLEMS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! Does this man, Mr. Shelton, even know what policies Allen West represents? Self reliance, self respect, family, education and direction. Not victimhood, as represented by the crying Black man and his son. No, Mr. Shelton, your type is out of style and you are making the NAACP into an irrelevant body. Your type is not new though, Booker T. Washington wrote:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (p. 118)

No excuses , Mr. Shelton, exist for your ignorant observation. Murphy is what we expected him to be , an opportunist for a weak son; hoping to buy his son job and himself access to greater treasure and business deal in Washington. The casting of the crying Black man and boy are exactly how he views you also. Playing the race card is one of the disgusting tricks of Murphy’s trade, to which he has no excuse. You have no excuse for not seeing this and proclaiming yourself a spokesperson for the NAACP.

  1. Dr. West,

    First of all I want to thank both you and your husband for the great service you have both rendered to our great republic. Your husband is one of my personal heroes for the stands he has taken on behalf of Service Members and for our Nation. Also, this is a great article. You are clearly a courageous, strong and well spoken woman. I wish you and your entire all the best now and in November. Go WEST!

  2. Thank you Dr.West. Here’s my question: They tell me i’m a racist because I disagree with just about everything Obama does or stands for but how do you explain my support and loyalty to black Patriots Like Allen West and Herman Cain? They are both black right? what’s that you say? They’re conservative black men? Oh I see it’s only racism if it’s black liberal men? Oh I see now.

  3. Everything that is good and right in this world is what the liberals seek to destroy. There is no limit to their evil and hatred. I can see November and a light at the end of the tunnel….may God bless you guys!

  4. Dr West,

    I apologize for the behavior that passes for acceptable behavior in today’s political discourse. Of course you by now are used to it, and the fact that opponents now a days are extremely hypocritical in their rhetoric. I ask where is Mr Jackson, Mr Sharpton, Mrs Jackson-Lee, Mrs Waters, and the rest of the CBC on denouncing this blatantly racist rhetoric? Of course I know the answer…its a Democrat candidate, so its all good.

    Your husband is a man of honor. I only wish I could have served under his command, and been lucky enough to have someone of his conviction and bravery leading me in the fight overseas.

    Te one thing I can say other than my apology is that LTC West must be doing something right…because when Democrats go full tilt moonbat, its because they are out of options, and out of ideas.

    My best regards to you and your family.

  5. I am a small business woman, my son is on the delayed entry program going into the USMC. I have advocated for Allen West’s voice to be heard as VP long before Sarah Palin began stating same. I agree with Sarah Palin, he’s a huge threat to all liberals, all racists and as such you have this extreme reaction. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party need to make him the keynote speaker or the VP but they better get his message out there fast and consistently. If Obama’s elected again, we’re Greece.

  6. The ad was disgusting and anyone who understands what Allen West represents knows how offensive this is….please don’t be discouraged by this because this country needs a family like yours to bring us back to the values and leadership that are vanishing right before our eyes!!! I so wish I lived in Florida so I could vote but I am still keeping my hopes up that we will see you as our first family and before that as VP OF THIS FINE COUNTRY!

  7. This attack against Mr. West has me furious. Mr. West is a true role model for all young men of any race. What mother and father would not be proud to see their son grow into a man of integrity?

    The other guy is teaching them to be bums. How can a parent agree with that lifestyle when most kick their kids it for being just that.

    Shoot higher folks. support what’s right now. That’s the best way to make up for that bufoon in the white house telling our kids to be gay, to kill their babies, to demand other peoples money, to turn their backs on their faith. Allen West is the opposite of this. Why would anyone allow him to be attacked.

  8. To me, a middle aged white woman… this REEKS of “Birth of a Nation”. The movie made by the Klan to rile up white people about blacks… I think you should bring that up… The dems have a very racist past and ought to be ashamed of that. The KKK was an offshoot of the Democrats…and apparently the ACORN doesn’t fall far from the tree!!

    And I’m a woman vet too! WEST FOR PRESIDENT (someday soon)

  9. Dear Dr. Angela West, I have been following your husband’s thoughts and views on the problems America has been facing for about a year. I have been so impressed with the way he thinks and feels about our Country & It’s Constitution that I have seriously pondered to write him in for the upcoming election. I don’t believe in all this political mud slinging and have thus proclaimed myself an Independent. Remember, that the “good ole boy” system is slowly disapating, and it’s not what you say, but what you do, that should be the deciding factor. I believe your husband to be an “Honorable Man”, ( much like Retired Gen. Colin Powell) and hope he will continue “The Good Fight”. The people doing all the “back-stabbing are obviously intimidated by The Honorable Allen West and his truthfulness in the love of his family and his Country. The Educated people of this country see this come about every four years and are tired of all the false accusations, & promises, otherwise known as LIES. I for one, want my Country back.

  11. Just shameful. This man is a roll model any parent would be proud to have their kids follow. This is pathetic. He is a man of honor being crucified because the perverted, thieving, abortion supporting, Christianity suppressing, welfare promoting, promise breaking, racial tension causing man with another social security number feels the need to prove to America that he is the Alpha-negro or something. Its all for his own glory and he does not care how many of our youths he throws under the bus to continue his ride. Allen West should not be made to suffer to make thewicked one appear to be righteous.

  12. Dr. West: I admire your husband and appreciate his effort to stand up and do what is right for our country. God Bless your family! Maybe one day soon, this country will be the great nation that I knew all my life until 2008.

  15. I am so sorry that you both have to put up with this abuse and filth. It just shows how dangerous this war with the evil left is. They have no values, morals, integrity or honor. Thank you for speaking so clearly and common sense wise, Know that I am praying for you and your family. I am disgusted by the racist behavior of these people. Hang tough and fight the good fight, and you will hear, Good job my good and faithful servants! Love ya and am hoping for The Colonel to be our VP!

  16. Dr. West, you make me very proud and I can see why Mr. West chose you as a wife! God bless you both!

  17. Bravo Dr. West for shining a light on the ugly truth! In so doing, you are turning a negative into a positive. That horrible add is backfiring big time!

  18. Well said Angela, and it has me seething that you even had to do this. The left has NO shame and they do NOT care who they hurt or how low they have to sink to get what they want. May God Bless you, Allen and the girls, and I stand steadfast and loyal to what Allen believes and stands for.

    • Also wish them the best. Beautiful couple. Hope he becomes the VICE PRESIDENT in NOVEMBER. He speaks out loud and clear, and that is to be admired. God Bless you and your Family!!

  19. I am mad crazy about your husband and after reading this from your heart I love you too. 🙂 Oh my goodness, we NEED you guys!!!!!

  21. As an Oklahoman, quite concerned about the lefts corruption and blatant undermining of our constitutional republic, I believe Allen West offers the most compelling message of resolve and is the one leader in our country that has the competence and fortitude to protect our nation from the enemy within. We need Allen West and I hope others from around the country that recognize his leadership is vital will continue to support him with determined perseverance.

  32. Dr. West: There are many of us out here who support your husband and what he stands for. The “political ad” that portrayed Rep West as a “ghetto thug” beating up white women is dispicable. I surely hope that your husband is re-elected to his seat in congress as we need Americans like him representing America and her citezenry. God Bless. Maybe one day ? Prez West?
