Allen West is the latest target of liberal left lies – by Barbara Howard

“A Divide and Conquer Lunatic!” This was only one of the names in the most incredulous emails I have received about Black Republicans and the worst blasting Congressman Allen West. It accuses him of saying, “I’m Black by birth, not by choice” in an interview with CNN anchor John King.

The quote continues: “In light of this month being Black History Month, I feel no way involved with this Negro celebration of half-accomplishments and borderline Communist agendas. View the list of these ‘fearless’ leaders of Black America. Black inhabitants of America knew their place at the table, and knew they could not eat off the same plate of the more than welcoming White men and women of the time. These men, I use that term lightly, like Malcolm X pushed themselves into the homes of innocent White Americans. This action riled up the Negro, and scared the living hell out of people.

“I am no way apart of this community of transported Africans, I myself am an American. I’m a good ol’ boy from the great state of Florida, and a citizen of this great nation. I know God recognizes me as my true self, a proud, strong White man given dark pigmentation. God had to give the Blacks at least one intelligent person, so he chose to give me dark skin. I curse my birth as a Black man every day. I’m Black by birth, not by choice. It will all be sorted out when my name is called, and I step in front of the great White Jesus himself.”

All a fake

The outrage at Allen was palpable. One person claims to have researched this statement and found it to be true.

But the very website that it was found on clearly tells the world that it is NOT true! The link was to, which states unequivocally in “Satire Disclaimer” that the post on Allen West is pure fiction and “fake news.”

“Free Wood Post is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within are fiction, and presumably fake news.

Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental, except for all references to politicians and/or celebrities, in which case they are based on real people, but still based almost entirely in fiction.”

Almost nobody took the time to investigate this absurd claim? “I’m White by birth, not by choice?” Who says that kind of thing? And if it was an interview on CNN, where is the video?
