Allen West Ousted From NAACP Event Over Communist Remark

Allen West Communists

There is absolutely nothing that can change my opinion of this guy.  He was a creep in the military and he’s an even bigger creep in  Congress.

The really sad thing is that although he got an early discharge from the military for his tortuous acts against an Iraqi prisoner, I believe he was (s)elected by Tea Partiers because of that act.

It turns out calling Democratic lawmakers “Communists” has some consequences.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was supposed to be the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for his district chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) this past Saturday. But days before the event, the group canceled the gathering and asked West not to come back when they rescheduled. Why?

“There’s a certain statement he made about Communists,” Jerry Gore, president of the Martin County NAACP, told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers. “That statement alone … we do not represent that type of atmosphere.”

The NAACP chapter is rescheduling its banquet for Sept. 15, with a new keynote speaker. Gore told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that a spokesman for West said he “understood” why the organization didn’t want West to speak anymore.

West landed in hot water earlier this month after telling constituents at a town hall meeting that some 80 House Democrats “are members of the Communist Party. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.” His remarks sparked outrage among Democrats – Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said “not even Joe McCarthy would have said anything so stupid” — but West later said he had no regrets about the ordeal.

  1. I’m proud of West for using plain English. He has been correctly outing enemies of the constitutional republic who are hiding in plain sight behind the convenient and duplicitous label “Progressive”.
