Allen West, once again showing that he fears nothing in his quest to deliver truthful commentary on the state of today’s liberal Democratic party, ripped into the left’s perpetual use of the race card and stated that ‘true racism’ lies with white liberals.
West was responding to an article in the Los Angeles Times that ripped into Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for not condemning past comments from the Congressman from Florida. The Times piece showed their true colors by referring to West as a “gaffe-ster” and a “clown prince” of outrageousness.
Apparently, the author would have preferred that Priebus refer to West in the same terms.
West’s response, in an interview with Mike Huckabee, was laced with typical verbal beatings for the left (h/t Right Scoop):
I really feel that it is demeaning to me to think that I need some individual to justify me and my existence. Look, I went through 22 years being in the military, I rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel, I have a bachelor and 2 masters degrees.
And for these white liberals to believe they can have this condescending manner toward black conservatives that we need to have approval from our quote unquote, I guess “masters”, for us to be able to speak – see that’s where the true racism really lies governor is with the white liberals who don’t want to see someone such as myself that broke away from their dependency class and is out here and able to possibly contend against them with the policies that they are promoting that’s destroying the black community.
I know I’m their #1 target and it just emboldens me to speak out even stronger. And the heck with them if they think someone else needs to approve of me and what I stand for.
