A search for Allen West tells a different story. Why West and not Scott? This picture may be one reason, a Black man who actually is a genuine Christian conservative is anathema to leftists whose "universality" only extends to Blacks who follow the leftist line.
There are a series of hate posts at Daily Kos in the typical intemperate "progressive" rant style e.g. "Allen West Had To Resign From Army To Avoid Court Martial; He's Equally Unfit to Serve in Congress". After the rant (and for a different, more temperate view of West's military career see
(THIS LINK) there follows the usual leftist ad hominem's that one would expect from "progressives".
"He's nuts" "pond scum" "war criminal" bat crazy" "something largely and vilely wrong with West" "a sociopath through and through" and of course "war criminal".
That's just one of many posts on West including this one which calls for him to be "neutered" where the delightful comment that "West is a lying piece of crap" is just one of many hate comments.
The Kos posts and comments, bad as they are, are as nothing compared to the sick and openly racist ones at the far leftist "Wonkette" site.
The disgusting load of trash "Wonkette", infamous for its Trig Palin "Retard" scandal and lately "Palin waves that retard of hers around like a flag" descent into hell has decided that conservative Blacks are worthy of their denigration.
In an article which clearly sets up Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll as a stooge who is kept out of the loop on important matters but is used as a front person to show the Florida GOP can't be racist, Wonkette gets a further dig in at their hate figure Cong. Allen West.
West actually takes the attack back to the Dem's which makes the lib meme 'well there are actually a few Black Republicans now but they are all stooges" redundant. What to do with West then? Call him a "traitor" which disposes of the anachronism for them.
"It’s also worth noting that Carroll is, along with various mosquito sprayers and dog catchers and war criminals (Allen West), one of the
Here are a few enlightened Wonkette comments on the subject;
"Well of course they can't give any information about the case to a black woman; her job is just to stand and look pretty so that the Republicans can point to her and say, "We're not racist and/or sexist; just look at the lieutenant governor!"
"I'd love to talk to you, but Massa Scott says I have to have all the silver polished by noon."
Here is how Wonkette and its alleged human readers dealt with West when he got "uppity" previously;
"Showing that the progressive commitment to a new dialogue, to anti-racism to common decency is a sham, and exposing that when it comes to supporting the re-election of President Obama the left will play the "Uncle Tom" card against any Black politician who stands in their way, the well known leftist Blog "Wonkette" includes this description of Republican congressman Allen West (who represents the Florida 22nd congressional district and is described as R- Plantation") quoting a report by McClatchy;
"In his verbal explosion, the Plantation Republican suggested his beef with Wasserman Schultz began in October 2010 and “the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign” headquarters in Deerfield Beach, West said in his email."
This because West a Republican from Florida, had the temerity to take, exception to Dem Wasserman Schulz character, and said so in strong, but dignified language.
The language itself, being alien to the ears of progressives, also came under childish attack, but it was the disgusting flow of racist invective which the commentators threw at West, which shows the left has no shame and will use the race card to call, in effect, all Black Republicans, Steele, Cain, and West as examples, "Uncle Tom's" and visible tokens used to mask Republican racism-when clearly it is the Dem supporters who are the racists and hypocrites.
Just Some remarks from Wonkette's commentators:
"Oh, Jesus Christ. This tool owes his election to the GOPs desperate attempt to find as many "black friends" as they can. He makes Michael Steele look like a friggin' Nobel laureate. "
"Suddenly my attitude toward lynchings has experienced a certain softening..."
"Being a black republican is one long stint of disrespectin' yourself. No wonder they are always in such a snit."
"It was preferable to his preferred moniker, "House Nigger."
"The fact that there's actually a town called "Plantation", in 2011, is yet another bit of proof that the Southerners claiming they just support "their heritage" and not slavery is total BS. And no Mr. West, you can be the best house negro ever and they will still think you're inferior."
Condoleezza Rice is a "war monger" every time she gets mentioned as a possible VP candidate as no one could trot out the store front stooge theme with her of`course.
Black Dem's can advise that if too many people stand near the edge of Guam it will "tip over" and can stash tens of thousands of dollars in bribe money in their freezer, but that's OK they are Dem's and exempt from any charge of idiocy or incompetence. But woe betide any Black who dares stand for conservative principles.
From;Wikipedia "Congressional Black Caucus"
The caucus is officially non-partisan, but in practice it has been closely identified with the Democratic Party, and tends to function as a lobbying group within the wider Democratic Party. Only six black Republicans have been elected to Congress since the caucus was founded: Senator Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts, Representative Gary Franks of Connecticut, Delegate Melvin H. Evans of the Virgin Islands, Representative J. C. Watts of Oklahoma, Representative Allen West of Florida, and Representative Tim Scott of South Carolina. Brooke was not in the CBC. Watts elected not to join the group because of its closely Democratic affiliation and goals, saying "...they said that I had sold out and [called me an] Uncle Tom. But I have my thoughts. And I think they're race-hustling poverty pimps." After the 2010 midterms, Allen West joined the caucus while Tim Scott declined. West indicated that he planned to shake up the CBC's "monolithic" ideology and indicated the caucus promoted a culture of victimization among its black constituents.[7
