GOP Gone Wild: Allen West Says that Obama Wants Americans 'To Be His Slave'

I am trying to remember if I've ever heard a Jewish leader accuse another Jewish leader of wanting to be a Nazi sympathizer. I can't recall that ever happening. That would be insulting and disrespectful and a sign of a person with a true lack of character. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) showed himself to be a disrespectful Black man without any true character a few days ago when he made the following statement:
“He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American. He’d rather you be his slave,”





Is Allen West so desperate for the approval of white folks in the Republican Party and in his congressional district that he will stoop to any level of nonsense in his effort of a government title?

My thoughts fail me in trying to understand someone like West. Individuals similar to him pop up in many populations of people who have as a group been marginalized or discriminated against in the past. That makes such bizarre behavior understandable perhaps but still not acceptable...

Ned - The cynical answer is that it's all about money and fame. Allen West is a rock star in the Republican Party because he's a rarity ... a Black man in their party. Most of his fundraising comes from outside his congressional district.
