I found this op-ed by an attendee of the Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference, to be a rather interesting. The author writes that she wished Rep. Allen West, when speaking at the event, had done more to talk about conservative principles.

“Thousands from all across the country gathered in the nation’s capital last weekend to discuss varying issues within the Black community and the only workshop led by the retired Lt. Colonel was a discussion on the past and future of African-Americans in the military. As West is the only conservative member of the CBC, I expected him to give me more. …”

“With thousands of community leaders, elected officials, non-profit leaders, and Black voters in attendance, the ALC conference this past weekend would have been an ideal opportunity for Rep. West to lead a discussion on conservatism in the Black community. I would argue it would have been the most attended session. I certainly would have attended, if only to hear the answer to the question, what is the conservative agenda to address the needs of black communities?

“So far the legislation he has proposed and supported do not give any indication that conservatives have a comprehensive agenda that would address issues such as soaring unemployment, the increasing number of children living in poverty, substandard public education, disparities in health care and the plague of gun violence in communities across the country. … “

Now, my guess is West would have been only to happy to engage in a lengthy discussion of conservative principles, though I doubt his CBC colleagues would have been very happy. I think the author’s idea is a fantastic one. But it’s clear from the last sentence in the quoted paragraph that the author really hasn’t been listening already to what West says, or what conservatives are saying. The Republicans have been talking about little else than jobs. West had a bill that would give tax credits to help the unemployed (found just through a simple Google search). He also talks about the destruction of the family at that same CBC convention.

Congressman Allen West “I give you my thoughts in my weekly wrap up”

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, it is time again for our weekly update.  It is hard to believe that almost nine months have gone by.

I want to begin with the issue of the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state in the United Nations. Because of a short-sighted speech given last year by our own President at the United Nations, we saw an emboldened Mahmoud Abbas submit his request for statehood. A request for the creation of something that even in its name is a misnomer.

As I have often stated, the word Palestine has nothing to do with Arabs. It has everything to do with a region that was conquered by the Romans who suppressed the Jewish rebellion between 68-73 AD and by decree of Emperor Hadrian, who changed the region’s name from Judea to Palestina.

Hadrian and the Romans took the word Palestina from the root word, Phillistia, referring to the original Philistines, who were in fact Greek.
Therefore, the true “Palestinians” are the Jewish people, hence why I believe the first step to a peace process solution in the Middle East is recognition of the modern-day Jewish State of Israel. The second step is a complete repudiation of radical Islamic terrorism and dismantling of terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al Aqsa and Al Quds Brigades, Hezbollah, and others which threaten Israel.

If these critical conditions cannot be met, and if Mahmoud Abbas cannot agree to this, then his attempts are nothing more than a charade. The audacity of Abbas to attempt to circumvent the negotiation process, and the applause he received at the United Nations is very concerning to me.

The United States must adamantly oppose and submit its veto vote in the United Nations Security Council and unequivocally assert that we shall not support this measure until the “Palestinian” Authority evidences itself as a credible peace partner.

If the UN continues its support of Abbas without the above measures taking place, then the United States House of Representatives should withdraw the support of the American taxpayer dollars to both the United Nations and the Palestinian Authority. In times of economic hardship, fiscal responsibility means that we are the guardians and stewards of American taxpayer dollars.

I also want to confront the absurdity of Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad having a platform on our soil upon which to spew his vile rhetoric. There must come a time when Ahmadinejad is no longer granted a visa into the United States. How dare he stand in New York City and blame 9-11 on our America!

Lastly, I want to discuss the Continuing Resolution (CR) the House of Representatives passed this week. It is vital that we as Conservative Republicans learn to and demonstrate our ability to govern, something the liberal progressives seem to be  incapable of doing. We passed a measure which would keep our Federal Government functioning while we complete the remaining six appropriations bills.  There are a total of 12 bills and the United States Senate has only taken up one.

Part of the CR, ensures the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is funded in order to alleviate the suffering of Americans from the recent natural disaster which struck our nation. To be fiscally responsible, House Republicans found spending offsets to ensure we pay attention to our deficit issue. That offset came from a Department of Energy government loan program for “green” vehicles.
The Federal Government does not need to inject itself into the automobile industry, or any private sector industry, as it has done with the mortgage industry and now the healthcare industry.

I call upon Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to stop playing the games of political brinksmanship and pass the House legislation. We do not need to repeatedly portray the United States Congress as a dysfunctional body politic. I ask you, Senator Reid, to stop trying to maneuver and manipulate a failing political agenda at the expense of the American people and  “Pass the House Continuing Resolution, now!”

In closing, never forget that leadership is about taking action, it is different from managing. Our America needs principled and pragmatic leaders who have a deep passion for this country, the American people and their advancement and success.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen

Congressman Allen West’s response to Obama’s comments at CBC dinner – via Facebook

My response to President Obama’s comments at the CBC dinner…

by Congressman Allen West on Monday, September 26, 2011 at 3:00pm

President Obama’s comments at the CBC dinner Saturday evening telling the black community to “stop complaining” were disrespectful and reprehensible. With unemployment in the black community at 16.7 percent, food stamp enrollment up, and our national poverty rate at epic proportion, the people have a constitutional right to redress their grievances to the government. If President Obama believes he is above criticism and reproach for his failed economic policies, then he should either change his policies or step down. Regardless, as a Member of the Congressional Black Caucus, I admonish President Barack Hussein Obama to apologize to America for his callous remarks.

CBC says Tea Party racist to Allen West and Herman Cain they’re ‘oreos’ by Joe Newby

, Spokane Conservative Examiner September 25, 2011

Dan Joseph of the Media Research Center went to the Congressional Black Caucus Conference in Washington, D.C., to find out exactly what the Caucus thought of the Tea Party.

Not surprisingly, the Caucus – a group where the sole qualification for entry is race – agreed the Tea Party is racist.

Several told Joseph the Tea Party is racist because it came into existence during the Obama Administration, with one member calling it a response to “having a black man in office.”  That, for them, was proof the group is racist.

“They came about at a time where most of America was relishing in the fact that the country had changed in a symbolic way and an African-American was elected President,” one member said.

“I think the Tea Party should go to hell,” said another, echoing the words of California Democrat Maxine Waters.

“The Tea Party means trouble – you tell them to go to hell,” said a member wearing a military garrison cap.

Hilary O. Shelton, Director of the NAACP Washington, DC bureau, told Joseph he did not believe the Tea Party is racist, but claimed “elements” of the Tea Party was using it to advance what he called a “racist agenda.”  Shelton did not elaborate what that agenda was, however.

For at least two members, the Tea Party is racist because of Michele Bachmann, and one member claimed Sarah Palin is racist.

When asked about Herman Cain and Allen West – two prominent African-Americans who are proud Tea Party members –  several questioned their “blackness,” and at least one called them “oreos” – a slur meaning one who is “black on the outside, but white on the inside.”  The very definition is as racist as one can get, but these members had no problem using it.

Rep. Allen West: “We Need Black Fathers, Not Washington D.C.”

“It’s great that we have President Barack Hussein Obama as the first black, African-American President of the United States of America, but I didn’t have to look at someone beyond my own dad,” West said. “When you look at the black family structure right now, less than 33 percent have mother and father in the home. That’s what we have been talking about here. Once upon a time in the black community you didn’t have to look at people outside your home for role models. We’ve have got to get that re-established. So we don’t have to look up to Washington D.C. You can look at your dads.” (source: Accuracy in Media)
