Allen West unloads on Barack Obama and Eric Holder on the Steve Malzberg Show…
A violent, disturbing trend has spread to communities across the U.S. in recent weeks. Commonly referred to as the “knockout game,” there is nothing playful about the actions of those who participate.
Perpetrated largely by black youth against white citizens, numerous victims have been injured or even killed after being sucker punched in the head. Outspoken conservative and former Florida Rep. Allen West recently addressed the troubling development during a recent panel discussion regarding immigration reform.
The systematic cycle of dependency inflicted upon impoverished neighborhoods by leftist legislators, he explained, has played an enormous role in creating a culture that could support such random outbursts of violence.
When generations of relatives have relied on the government to provide essentials, West said young members of a family will see that way of life as “the new normal.” The effects, he noted, only become more pronounced as time elapses.
“The safety net becomes a hammock,” he said. “And therefore, you have to have an increase of government spending because you’re going to expand and grow this welfare nanny state.”
Such dependence also “affects your level of self-esteem,” he added, which has led to a sense of frustration among many within that environment. Instead of finding meaning through a career or some other positive means, West said too many youth believe they have no options.
“You’re going to have more Detroits,” he predicted, noting teens in these communities “have nothing to do, their education system is failing them.”
During his formative years, West said he would “go and get my little part-time summer job,” noting today’s inner-city youth “don’t even have those options now. So what are they doing? They’re going out and they’re beating on people.”
Until something meaningful is done in these communities, West said “it will continue to drag the rest of this country down.”
Unfortunately, these inner-city wastelands are almost entirely under the control of radical leftists who are happy with the status quo. Dependent constituents are dependable Democrat voters, after all.
If only West’s message would resonate with a significant portion of those living in America’s urban centers, this troubling tide could one day be stemmed. To prevent this from happening, the left has worked feverishly to portray conservatives as racist and hateful.
Thankfully, West is among a growing number of patriots who are willing to cut through the political posturing to expose the real, if unpopular, effects of leftist policies.
Who deserves the credit for the high division / low morale that hovers over our country like a dark cloud?
A once proud and hopeful nation is now fractured and frustrated. We are a people mired in doubt and uncertainty.
Our divider-in-chief has exhibited a complete lack of leadership, bordering somewhere between disdain and indifference for the citizens to whom he has sworn full allegiance and servitude. Our security, protection, and representation has been unjustly exchanged for a radical new world void of true tolerance or individuality.
Fear and paranoia now reigns, as the shared values that enabled America to become a great melting pot of culture and diversity have been discarded. A climate of suspicion and mistrust has emerged as subtle seeds of racial and civil unrest continue to bring America to the brink of implosion.
The deceit and propaganda of a treasonous and tyrannical executive branch continues to inflame the tension of our polarized society. A governmental provocation fostering the widespread internal strife of our diversified nation seems to be the ultimate end of this radically reckless brand of leadership.
Back in 2009, a majority of white America was fully behind the president. There was much fanfare and enthusiasm as he assumed his place in the Oval Office. The New York Times proclaimed that Obama’s victory had swept “away the last racial barrier in American politics.”
Despite America’s willingness to overcome the racial divide once and for all, the discouraging truth is that this president relies on chaos and instability. How else can he fulfill his ‘Dreams From My Father’ here in America?
Obama was partially raised and mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a writer and poet whose devotion to Communism was matched only by his hatred for whites.
Does our president secretly loathe those people who enthusiastically embraced him? Is the ‘race card’ now the ultimate ‘trump card’ for men like Obama?
Based on a few of the passages from his aforementioned autobiography, it appears that Obama may have a few unresolved issues related to race, equality, social restoration, and our rule of law:
“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
“The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.”
“That’s just how white folks will do you. It wasn’t merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. ”
“…anger’s a requirement for the job. The only reason anybody decides to become and organizer. Well adjusted people find more relaxing work.”
“In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
“But you see, a rich country like America can perhaps afford to be stupid.”
I’m not reading any true love or regard for America in any of these quotes! But this is his perception of America; and based on what we’ve seen, it’s not surprising.
It is no wonder he’s been leading a movement to level the playing field. How vicious is his intent? To what degree may he ‘race-bait’ and ‘falsely accuse’ to achieve his goals? How many (regardless of race, color, or creed) will actually benefit from his agenda? Does he truly represent any race? Or is he merely doing the bidding of those who harbor a general animosity of America?
When bonehead Alan Grayson recently used the ‘divide and conquer’ propaganda tactic to unfairly categorize the Tea Party, Allen West, who also happens to be African American, rightly exposed the hypocrisy -
I woke up this morning sure I would see a statement from the first African-American President condemning Florida Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson for his use of a burning cross and Klansmen in a fundraising email…..
President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead the party who gave us the Ku Klux Klan and the burning cross symbol. Their silence is consent and demonstrates that today’s liberal progressives are just as comfortable using these images as their predecessors.
The party of Lester Maddox, George Wallace, and Huey Long Jr. is alive and well. Sadly enough, Rep. John Lewis and other “faux” black leaders are showing their true colors. Damn glad my parents inspired me to depart the plantation.
As a Christian, I do not hate President Obama. Nobody on this side of the grave is beyond redemption. Pastor John Newton (writer of the classic hymn ‘Amazing Grace’) was a ruthless slave trader prior to his spiritual conversion and subsequent role in the successful abolitionist campaign to end slavery in England. But a true restoration requires a lethal dose of supernatural justice.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

After Florida Democrat Alan Grayson compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Clan in a recent campaign email, conservatives — and anyone who respects the truth — have spoken out against the congressman’s outrageous rhetoric.
Despite the fact the KKK was populated almost entirely by Democrats, Grayson’s ignorant statements reveal that he either has no idea what Tea Party members believe or is willing to blatantly lie about them in order to further his fundraising efforts. Furthermore, he purposely ignored the fact that a great number of principled black Americans are proud adherents to the movement’s conservative values.
One of the most outspoken of these men and women is former Florida Rep. Allen West. The principled Republican conservative appeared on Fox News recently to criticize not only Grayson but the Democrat party as a whole for the left’s silence on the issue.
While Barack Obama “came out and started talking about civility in our dialogue,” West wondered why he hasn’t chastised Grayson for his incendiary email.
“I think the president should be speaking out about this,” he said. “He should reprimand and censure Alan Grayson for what he said.”
West’s judgement extended to other leaders in the party, including Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Debbie Wasserman Shultz.
“You know, we continue to hear the use of this extremist language,” he told host Megyn Kelly, “jihadist language, arsonist, extortionist, and now this equating constitutional conservatives — people who just believe in a constitutional way of government to operate — with people who were responsible for lynchings, and horrible things in the south and all across the country.”
As for an apology from Grayson, it appears that conservatives will be waiting a while. His response to those offended by his disgraceful email is, “[i]f the shoe fits, wear it.”
Though he will likely never concede the level of stupidity he showed in sending the message, West was able to put the situation in perspective as almost no one else could. Not only have both men been Florida congressmen, West provides a voice for the black conservatives Grayson apparently believes do not exist.

Though never one to mince words when discussing Barack Obama, former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) recently let loose on the administration — specifically the troubled ObamaCare law.
His comments, made via social media, came around the same time the federal government reopened following a 16-day shutdown. While the ObamaCare debate was ultimately scrubbed from a congressional deal to end the standoff, the shutdown began with that issue front and center.
He said that the failure to adequately address the law during negotiations, along with other concessions made by the GOP, means “the Constitutional Republic we know as America has suffered a horrible defeat.”
West decided to once again advance conservative opposition to socialized medicine, describing Obama’s key legislative legacy as “an edict handed down by a tyrant, not a President.”
Defying the legislation’s leftist supporters, who demand Americans accept the unpopular system, he boldly proclaimed “ObamaCare is not the law of the land.”
Explaining his assertion, West noted that Obama did not seek congressional approval before postponing the certain portions of the law, noting that inaction during the recent debt debacle means that he will now be even more emboldened to unilaterally enact changes in the future.
“This is reprehensible,” he concluded, “and we can expect even more bad behavior from a President that continues to spit on our Constitution and in our eyes … and smile.”
His direct comments come on the heels of other pointed criticisms, during which West called Obama “a pathological liar” and “spoiled brat.”
The tendency for leftists to classify Tea Party conservatives as inherently racist falls flat when the most outspoken Obama opponent is himself a black man. It is the left, not the right, that continues to see everything through the prism of skin color.
West — along with countless other patriotic Americans — just wants to live in a nation of guaranteed liberty as our founders envisioned. When a leader, regardless of race, threatens that ideal, these principled citizens will rise up against him.
Along with a handful of other vocal opponents, West has been and continues to be a great source of inspiration for those of like mind.
