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.

How MLK’s Dream Got Derailed

Liberal politics is preventing the black community from fulfilling the vision of the March on Washington

By 

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous, “I Have a Dream” speech. Dr. King delivered that monumental speech to ensure that the words of Thomas Jefferson, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal,” lived up to their meaning, just as Lincoln sought to do. It is therefore quite appropriate that the monuments to these three astute Americans are within eyeshot of each other.

However, where have we come in these 50 years and what is legacy of that speech today?

Dr. King postulated that, “the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.”

There can be no doubt that we have highly successful blacks in all walks of life, but when we examine the state of America’s inner cities we must all be appalled; shall I say Detroit?

We have fought to break the chains of physical bondage, but today the chains of economic bondage are even worse. This is not about social justice but about ensuring that the economic opportunities of America can resurrect small business entrepreneurship in the black community. Our economic, tax, and regulatory policies must promote free market growth, investment, innovation and ingenuity to enable self-reliance.

We need to promote the growth of our small community banks in order to provide the capital for those in our inner cities with an idea in their heads and determination in their hearts. The Reagan administration proposed such an initiative – urban economic empowerment zones.

Dr. King stated that, “America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked insufficient funds.” Today, the government is issuing electronic benefits transfer cards and even recruiting for enrollment. The government is issuing free cell phones. This is not the dream King wanted, the nightmare of dependence.

North of Dr. King’s birthplace in Atlanta, a young black teenager sits accused of shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face. We know of the killings in Duncan, Okla.,  and Spokane, Wash., the murders in Chicago and the school bus beating in Gulfport, Fla. Black males comprise 6 to 7 percent of the American population but are responsible for nearly 55 percent of violent crimes … that is not part of the dream.

In Pursuit Of Martin Luther King’s Dream
He imagined opportunity, but we’re creating dependency

 

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. He delivered it five score years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, hence the decision to give it in Lincoln’s shadow at his memorial site in Washington, D.C.

Now we are two score and 10 years from the date of Dr. King’s monumental speech to ensure that the self-evident truth defined by Thomas Jefferson and echoed by Lincoln – “that all men are created equal” – lives up to its meaning. It is quite appropriate that the monuments to these three astute Americans are within eyeshot of each other.

However, where have we come in these 50 years and what should we celebrate on this anniversary? Have we achieved the dream Dr. King hoped we would? I say we are not there yet, and in some ways we have gone backward.

Blacks are chained in economic bondage

A half-century ago, Dr. King said: “The Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.”

Today there can be no doubt that we have highly successful blacks in all walks of life, but when we examine the state of America’s inner cities, we must all be appalled. Shall I say Detroit?

We have fought to break the chains of physical bondage, but the chains of economic bondage are even worse. This is not about social justice, but it is about ensuring that the economic opportunities of America can resurrect small-business entrepreneurship in the black community.

Our economic, tax and regulatory policies must promote free-market growth, innovation, ingenuity and investment. Instead, our policies are expanding the dependency society, not the opportunity society.

We need to promote the growth of small community banks to provide the capital for entrepreneurs in inner cities who have ideas in their heads and determination in their hearts. The Reagan administration pushed this philosophy via urban economic empowerment zones.

Dr. King also stated that “America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked insufficient funds.” Today, the government is issuing welfare by way of electronic benefits transfer cards and even recruiting people to enroll in the program. The government is issuing free cell phones.

This is not the dream Dr. King wanted us to live. As a matter of fact, Booker T. Washington built a three-pronged attack plan for the black community – education, entrepreneurship and self-reliance. That was Dr. King’s dream.

The travesties of black crime and abortion

If we had economic opportunities and better education – and remember, President Obama cancelled the latter when he killed the District of Columbia’s school voucher program – maybe we would not have the record high unemployment in the black community. The problem is especially acute among black teenagers, who it seems are so bored that they hunt down and kill innocent people.

Not far from Dr. King’s birthplace in Atlanta, a young black teenager sits accused of shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face. That is not part of the dream.

We also are witnessing the complete breakdown and collapse of the family, which was the foundational strength of the black community. Today, 72 percent of black children are born out of wedlock. That is not part of the dream.

Dr. King talked about the promissory note of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and the guarantee of unalienable rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, when it comes to life, over the past two score years, mothers have aborted some 13 million black babies. The black community would be 36 percent greater save for this tragedy, this genocide.

How many babies never got the chance to pursue Dr. King’s dream – the American dream? How many will never get to be among the next generation of doctors, lawyers, successful businessmen and women, prominent entertainers and sports figures. This travesty is certainly not part of Dr. King’s dream.

So where are the voices speaking up about these issues?

Booker T. Washington stated in 1911:

There is a class of colored 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.

Living the dream and fighting to win it for others
My challenge is simple: Shall we just hear the same ole rhetorical speeches on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “dream” speech, or shall we sincerely assess where we have come since Aug. 28, 1963?

In 1961 when I was born in Atlanta, in the same neighborhood as Dr. King, my parents could not go to Fort Lauderdale Beach or Palm Beach Island in Florida. Fifty years, later I was sworn in to Congress to represent Florida’s 22d District, which included the coastline from Fort Lauderdale to Jupiter, including Palm Beach.

I was the first black Republican member of Congress from Florida since Josiah T. Walls in 1874. The election was not about the color of my skin; it was about the content of my character. How paradoxical, then, that John Lewis, who spoke on the famed day of Dr. King’s speech in 1963 and went on to serve in Congress (actually as my representative in Atlanta), campaigned against me in 2010.

I still have a dream, one deeply rooted in the American dream – for my two daughters, for the black community, for all Americans and those who seek liberty and freedom. My dream is not based upon servitude to the government but rather upon exceptionalism.

I have been to California, Colorado and New Hampshire. I was educated in Tennessee and born and raised in Georgia. I am promoting and living Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream by example – a dream that I was reminded of every time as a young boy walking past Ebenezer Baptist Church on Auburn Ave.

Now the next generation is depending on us to fulfill Dr. King’s dream and ensure the promise of the American dream for them.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Allen West “This nation elected a black president, not once but twice. Have we come far since the abolition of slavery, and Dr. King’s march 50 years ago?”

by Allen West via Facebook

In 1961 when I was born in Atlanta in Dr King’s neighborhood, my parents would not have been allowed on Ft. Lauderdale beach or Palm Beach Island. Fifty years later, I was sworn in as the Congressional Representative of those same beaches. This nation elected a black president, not once but twice. Have we come far since the abolition of slavery, and Dr. King‘s march 50 years ago? Absolutely, but when we examine the state of America’s inner cities, we must all be appalled. Dr. King talked about the Declaration of Independence and the guarantee of unalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. But when it comes to life, over the past two score years, some 13 million black babies have been aborted. The black community would be 36% greater if not for this tragedy, this genocide. How many babies never got the chance to experience King’s dream, the American dream? And why are there so few voices speaking up on these issues? In the last 50 years we have witnessed the complete breakdown and collapse of what once was the foundational strength of the black community, the family. We fought to break the chains of physical bondage, but today the chains of economic and social bondage are even greater.

Allen West “Obama and Holder are embracing Marx’s tenth tenet from his Communist Manifesto”

1238770_10152117956516729_1973229510_n

by Allen West via Facebook

In years past, Democrats like George Wallace and Lester Maddox stood outside the school doors blocking entry for blacks to get quality and equal education. Now, progressive socialists masquerading as Democrats (Obama and Holder) stand inside and block the access of black children, denying them the opportunities of this great country, the American dream. One of the first edicts of Obama in 2009 was to cancel the DC school voucher program, yet his own progeny attend elite Sidwell Friends, while other black children were denied. Now Obama and Holder are embracing Marx’s tenth tenet from his Communist Manifesto, forcing our young children into failing public schools. This week is the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” I rest assured knowing Dr. King would stand with Gov. Bobby Jindal, not Obama and Holder. When will the black community awaken and see Obama for what he truly is?

Sailing The Conservative Seas
Allen West is away on the annual National Review cruise
This week, Col. Allen West is sailing the North Sea with National Review. In between stops along Norway’s coast, West, Rich Lowry, Jonah Goldberg and others are entertaining guests with panels, special “insider” sessions and possibly a card game or two. He will return Aug. 12.
Here’s his message before he cast off:
I could not be more humbled at this esteemed opportunity to address a gathering of solid conservatives. Angela, Aubrey, Austen and I arrived in Amsterdam on Wednesday morning. We had a great time walking the old city and taking in the sights, such as Anne Frank’s house and the museums of Rembrandt and Van Gogh.I noticed the many churches and cathedrals that are no longer used as such. There is no doubt the secular humanist movement has taken hold in Holland and is reflected in Amsterdam – and probably the entire European continent. That is quite a contrast to the millions of young Catholics who gathered in Brazil to see Pope Francis. We in America must stand guard against the creep of secular humanist progressives who are attacking religious freedoms.

As we pulled out of the port, it struck me that my life has become the intersection of two great champions of civil rights and conservatism: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and William F. Buckley Jr. I was born and raised in Dr. King’s neighborhood in Atlanta, and now I’m cruising for the magazine first published by Buckley in 1955. Nowhere other than America could this story be told. Equality of opportunity, not outcomes, is the American way, the American dream.

The family is out on the deck as we make our way out of the channel to the North Sea. I have always admired the Viking warrior culture. Now I get to visit their homeland. One of my favorite movies was “The Vikings,” with Kurt Douglas, Tony Curtis and Ernest Borgnine. The History Channel series “Vikings” was doggone good as well.

I wish you all well and will be providing some Facebook updates on the excursion.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen

Congressman Allen West proudly and humbly serves the constituents of Florida’s 22nd district, encompassing parts of beautiful Broward and Palm Beach Counties along South Florida’s coastline.  Born and raised in the inner city of Atlanta, in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached, patriotism is in Congressman West’s blood. His father was a Corporal in the U.S. Army and served in the European theater of operations in WW II, and his mother, the outspoken and lovable “Snooks” West, worked as a civilian on a local Military Installation. “My father was proud of his own service, and believed that serving your country was the greatest of all honors,” West said.  “Both of my parents taught me that it was not necessary to rely on a government handout to achieve my goals. They wanted me to believe in myself and told me that in America, with hard work, all things are possible.”
