War hero and former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is questioning how long it will take for “you people” – white Americans – to realize that their president “abjectly despises” them.
In a commentary posted Tuesday on his own website, West, who represented Florida in Congress after an extended career in the U.S. military, confronted head on the issue of racism.
Citing Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s warning that schools have to drop policies that “disproportionately punish minorities,” West suggested it’s not racism to punish blacks more when members of that minority cause trouble more.
“I taught high school for one year in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and in the end, it was such an enjoyable experience breaking up fights daily, that I decided to return to the combat zone of Afghanistan,” West wrote. “Teachers are already disrespected and attacked, not feared. There were students at Deerfield Beach who steered clear of the lunchroom for fear of being picked on or engaged in a fight …
How about turning the tables.... How long will it take for "you people" - black Americans - to realize that the president "abjectly SHOVED civil rights" BACK to before the Civil War ??? The problem is not entirely on the shoulders of the whites. MANY BLACKS believe the garbage Obumble spews. Not all... obviously but PLEASE, Mr. West.... stop playing the race card.
the issue here is the president and his administration is paving the way for the real Anti Christ to come it has nothing to do with race at all
Jeff, you are so right!! The Devil sends his Advocates in first, then the Anti Christ should follow, I'm not so sure if the Guy in the White House is The Anti Christ or the Devils Advocate, he just maybe too stupid to be the Real Anti Christ but looks to me he is running a close first in the race?
Rebecca, That "race card" is the fore front of all agenders, unfortunatly. And the President PUT it in the Fore Frond and Wants To Keep It There, that is how he maintains "Controll" over certain aspects in sociaty.
I don't like Obama either, so the feeling is mutual . How could we respect anyone who is hell bent on destroying us . His wishes for us are total control , which will be removal of objects of defense bringing total subservience. If we allow that to happen , shame on us. Better to die free now , than live under a despot.
Thank God for people like Allen west.
I am with you Edward all the way
I am the last person you will ever hear defend Barack Obama but I cannot help point out that his administration has fewer blacks in high office than George Busch did - more Muslims though. Wether that is because he likes bossing them around or there is some other reason I do not know but it is so. He has exploited his own blackness and Holder certainly is a biggot but when I look at Obama I do not see a black man; I see a dark man from the middle east who's origins are unknown. I wonder what Obama sees when he looks in the mirror - a black man or something else?
I also agree with Patriotpapa2010 that West has been purposely ignoring Arpaiio and Zulu. There is no one in Congress who has the stones to step up to the plate on the forged documents issue. I too have written Colonel West requesting that he at least examine the evidence they have. At one point it looked like he was going to see them and them he backed out.
well Andrew when the president is looking in the mirror he is looking at a person who hate this country, and want to destroy very core of what this country stand for, and that my friend it is scary because he can do whatever he want to do because he is the president after all
I have believed this since he entered the WH. He has some serious mental issues. I did not have the best childhood either but it made me more empathetic toward my fellow human beings.
let me see, "abjectly despises" does that equate to I hate your f-ing guts?
Allen West isn't perfect, but he beats by a million miles what's in the WH now.
well here is my take on these issue, we have a president who doesn't do anything for his own people, and white people adore him I can not understand that, but the issue is that the president of the United State of America is not fit to be the president of these county and any other country at all he doesn't have any leadership at all
