Allen West “The hypocrisy is glaring”

News Conference Held To Unveil Petition Asking House To Investigate Benghazi Embassy Attack

by Allen West via Facebook

Last night I spoke at an event in Alexandria for EW Jackson, GOP nominee for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia. Jackson’s story is a powerful one, initially raised in poverty in a foster home, juvenile delinquency, reunited with his dad, former Marine, summa cum laude from U Mass, and Harvard law school graduate. However, the story yesterday was an attack against his daughter in POLITICO. The liberal media revels in attacking minority conservatives — prominent Hispanic conservative Senator Ted Cruz experiences the same treatment. However, the party of slavery, secession, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK especially enjoys attacking black conservatives, well aided by a highly complicit liberal progressive media and black liberals who remain silent. Consider how, on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s March on Washington, not a single black conservative was invited to speak. No Justice Clarence Thomas or Senator Tim Scott. However, the man who cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving black kids, Barack Obama, was celebrated. The hypocrisy is glaring. The continual practice of not just disagreeing but seeking to destroy the lives of those minority conservatives who do not embrace liberal dogma is vile. However, no one can destroy our steadfast resolve. Black conservatives are especially hated by liberals because we so love America.

Stacy Swimp examines Rep Allen West’s “Dispelling the Myths of Black Conservatism” New Pittsburgh Courier

New Pittsburgh Courier

Last month, Congressmen Allen West hosted a historic Black Conservative Forum in order to “discuss how to articulate and take the message of black conservatism back to our communities”, per the retired Army Colonel.

He referenced conservative principles such as limited government, fiscal responsibility, sovereignty, equality of opportunity, achievement, the free market system, values, education, family, and security.

“The conservative voice in the Black community remains mostly unacknowledged by politicians and the public alike,” West said. “While the conservative Black voice has always existed, it is more important than ever that it be recognized and encouraged.”


Among those on the multi ethnic, bi-partisan panel, were Congressman Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (chairman, Congressional Black Caucus, D-Mo.); Rev. Cleon Bryant (pastor, LA and founder of “Runaway Slave”); KCarl Smith (Frederick Douglass Republicans); Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and numerous other national leaders. The panel was moderated by Star Parker, founder and president of C.U.R.E., the Center for Urban Renewal and Education and nationally syndicated columnist.

Congressman Tim Scott, speaking of the perception that all Blacks are liberals, stated: “I have seen both sides. I successfully flunked out of high school in the ninth grade—with their (big government) help. Then my mother told me: Boy, I brought you into this world, I can take you out.” Scott continued: “Simple formula: Play by the rules. We must realize that something for nothing is a chain around your wrist. We have to succeed because we have been given the right to succeed! That is our heritage as Americans.”

Star Parker raised the issue of getting school choice into urban communities: KCarl Smith responded: “Frederick Douglass went through the problem of school choice. They tried to force him to send his daughter to an inferior school. The parent should be able to choose. This is worse than slavery! Douglass said, in 1848, ‘Face it, fight it, fix it!’ He put pressure on until the least were elevated and the most vulnerable were valued.”

Audio of Interview of Rep. Allen West (R-FL) by Scott Hennen on his radio program

Congressman West: “Well he is of course borrowing the words used by Justice Clarence Thomas but when you enter into this fray and you start to have the success that he is having, people are going to come at you. So I think that you have to recognize that that’s going to happen. I think that what’s going to end being the result, its going to make him somewhat more popular if it does not destroy him because all you keep hearing is anonymous and alleged and there is nothing concrete coming forward. So I think what he’s trying to do in his messaging is turn that against the accusers and to use this to build himself up.”

Scott Hennen: Is it an attack on a black conservative because he’s a black conservative?

Congressman West: “Oh come on, I mean you know I was the only black member of a white supremacist motorcycle gang so liberals and there are certain others I would say even within our party that are not comfortable with strong black conservative voices and I would say there are people that feel very threatened by that because we do stand on principle. We are someone or entities that are out of the mainstream, if you want to call it that so liberals are definitely going to come at you. But I think you also have this inner fight within our primary candidates for that piece of the pie that they want to have.”

Rep’s Allen West, Tim Scott ,and Repub pres candidate Herman Cain debunking the insulting stereotype

Black Liberals Assault on Herman Cain

 by:  Crystal Wright Columnist, Townhall.com

We live in a democratic country called America where we are given unalienable rights, individual freedoms and liberties to live our lives the way we deem fit. Americans have the freedom to choose what they say, write, their religion and which political party or movement they support: Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Party, etc.

But for black Americans the choice of political party appears predestined. It seems liberals but more specifically black liberals have carved in the ten black commandments that “thou shall never be a Republican.” These same black liberals also refuse to submit to the fact that not all blacks think alike.

With black conservatives like Congressman Allen West, Congressman Tim Scott and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain debunking this insulting stereotype, many black liberals have resorted to racist name calling to protect the myth that Democrat policies help blacks. Cain has been target number one on their list.

In Political Poker – The Race Card’s Wild!

By Stacy M. Swimp

I am “dizzy”! Seems that from my left, all so called Black liberals talk about is “race”. Accusations and blame. Yet, from the right, far too many conservatives are “Black conservatives”, “Black Republicans”,  “Hispanic Tea Party”, “Asian Republicans and are equally obsessed with topics centered around “race’, as either a reaction to what liberals are doing or as a preoccupation of some other nature. It is, quite frankly, aggravating. Can we talk about political and social issues without always focusing on alleged race issues?! Btw, is there actually any other “race” than the the human race or am I just out of touch?
