Now that West is not the VP choice, does anyone know why he isn't named yet as a obvious Speaker choice for the Convention?? Seems he is as "qualified, dignified, educated, articulate and more well known" than the Dem's choice of Fluck, Flunk, she is so successful she can't aford birth control pills Fluck. When it comes to proving the GOP's war on Women, it would seem the GOP has much more proof of the Dems and Black Communist war on Church, Chicken and Equal Rights.
Gay Marriage is a "follow the money and benefits tax issue" and politicians "offended" by someone bringing Chicken to a minority meeting, is surely "code" for "get in line with the minority coalition brother", and has nothing to do with their supposedly Judeo/Christian "judge not" cultural and ethnic public personna. West obviously was upsetting the money launderers in the Temple with a simple Chicken Sandwich. Takes guts and principles stronger than the average politician.
Maybe the black caucus is wrong thinking. Why would the whole caucus be so one sided? Homosexual marriage is still being discussed in America. It is not that the nation has decided in favor. Is it that homosexuals serve the black caucus? Or is it that the black caucus serves the homosexuals?
and what did Allen West say when questioned about his 'offensive' food?
"It was all gone by the end of the Caucus"
LOL - these FRAUDS were *****OFFENDED**** but they still ate all the FREE FOOD
We lost internet because of the storm that is moving through. I just wanted to thank all who participated in my little quiz about what makes a good leader. Good comments by all. I especially liked the quotes of famous people, regarding leadership, posted by toongoon. I also thought RighteousCrow gave an excellent comment to finish the conversation. Thanks to everyone who participated. I learned a lot. Good thoughts by everyone.
Good going West! Those central-planners needed a shake up. We will not sit down and shut up, we will reform that corrupt institution.
Alcee Hastings? Removed from federal judgeship for bribery and perjury, only the 6th ever! And we are supposed to think what he says is relevant?
Good one Alan West. You are the enemy of folks like Hastings, therefore, you are a friend of mine.
Our nation needs a leader, one who knows that the issues are the same ones they have been since the beginning of time. 1st) A leader doesn't look for the issue of the week, but recognizes sin as the problem and that we must look to the good book for the answers to sin. There is right and there is wrong. 2nd) The leader then having a hard and fast concept of the baseline problem, works to answer the problems of the day using the texts our forefathers left us, men were not dumbed down by design as our society is, the texts that were inspired by looking at thousands of years of what WORKED. (Our current leaders don't even bother to look back 25 years to see how what they want failed.) 3rd) A leader goes out there unconcerned about his little feelings and marches forward with courage determined to do the right thing at all cost. Our founding fathers paid a great price for this freedom we are kicking in the shins.
Allen West does the things that our founding fathers did to create this great nation. If we want to recreate it, we must look to men like him, courageous, unwaivering and believing in right and wrong. May the Lord bless him and his family. May the Lord bless us with such men of determination in multitudes. May we endevour to deserve them.
When Chuck Norris dreams about being a tough guy... he dreams about, yeah, you guessed it Allen West!*
If you don't know about this internet meme, you're probably better off! :-)
What a bunch of whining liberal elitists, well if that isn't good enough for you pompous asses go join your constituents in the welfare/unemployment and food stamp lines. Let me add PLEASE join them!!!!!!!
And ironically, they have NO IDEA if the fried chicken or collared greens brought in previously, which they approved of, comes from a little restaurant with an owner who is against gay marriage (as many Baptists are).
And six months ago, did anyone know if Cathy supported gay marriage or not? West included? This is so ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!
These people are just agitators. They go about, desperately looking to be offended by almost anything in their quest to justify their relevance and existence.
The largest cultural menace in America is the conformity of the intellectual cliques which, in education as well as the arts, are out to impose upon the nation their modish fads and fallacies, and have nearly succeeded in doing so. In this cultural issue, we are, without reservations, on the side of excellence (rather than "newness") and of honest intellectual combat (rather than comformity).
This is a quote from Mr William F. Buckley Jr. (A great American authur) 1955.
If the CBC checks far enough back maybe they can find something else he did to offend ALL of them! The Chik-Fil-A flap happened six months ago and ONLY NOW are they offended????????? It must not have bothered anyone in the CBC, until the recent (non)controversy about what constitutes a marriage. Then they decided it would look good politically to bring up something that happened six months previously!!!! I guess that's the way the CBC operates!!!!
Politically correct food.
Now I've heard it all.
You just can't fix stupid and wow are those CBC members stupid!
Guess the store was fresh out of borscht, huh?
Democrats are idiots. How can anyone be offended by food? The answer: someone who is looking to be offended for any reason. There is a whole world of hungry kids who would have been grateful for the food. And, how typical of the caucus, looking for something for free and then complaining about it. Hey you ungrateful losers, why don't you buy you own lunch???
I'm offended that CBC exists. Why is it necessary for them to exist again? Is there a Congressional White Caucus that meets every week?
Wow. Here I am thinking that Hastings is going to say they were offended because West brought "chicken" to the meeting and would say something like "He brings in chicken because all 'black people love chicken' and people were offended." Once I start reading I realize that all the food Hastings is talking about is stereo-typical food that black people like and only gets offended because Chick-fil-A has conservative values. Really?? I mean really?
I mean I usually don't eat too much ice cream but if my wife ends up buying some Ben and Jerry's I still eat the ice cream because they make good ice cream. I don't agree with their politics but I do agree with some of their ice cream flavors. Same goes for beer. I guarantee you some of the beer companies out there have liberal values, yet I still drink their beer because it's good beer and not because of their owner's political beliefs. They will take any excuse to cause a ruckus. I mean who cares. I hope the reporter laughed in Hastings face when he said that and asked if he was serious.
If I could only see Maxine Waters, Karen Bass, Laurel Richardson, Chuckie Rangell and Hank "Will Guam tip over" Johnson react to Allen West when he brought those sandwiches and biscuits into the meeting...OH BOY!
The Rev Dr. MLK Jr himself would offend the CBC and the NAACP today. They no longer subscribe to Dr King's policies of equality, via the content of one's character in society, not the color of their skin, which Dr MLK Jr prescribed to, and would thus be absolutely appalled and disgusted by the CBC and NAACP policy agenda that is now racial social (in)justice in every area and aspect of society, specifically forced upon by govt laws, rules, regulations, fiats, decrees, etc, Affirmative action being only the lightest and oldest of these policies, but which today AG Holder's DOJ rules of racial social justice policies, along with Obama's recent suggestion and soon to be ordered new discipline rules discipline of America's school children by race, instead of by equal basis-private or public sector makes no difference.
And all this and more is to be implemented either by legislative means, executive means, electoral voting means, etc.. however they can do it..
This is how far the radical liberal left has gone, especially in the CBC and the rest of the black community. They want to turn America into Zimbabwe-racially, and the old USSR-politically and economically.
Rev Dr MLK Jr would be absolutely appalled by them, and today would be standing along side Rep Allen West and his niece, Dr Alveda King, and all conservatives in fighting against them and their radical social anti-American agenda of hate and social racial division.
All this, because Allen West brought a bunch of chicken to the CBC meeting, when all of them eat chicken every day of the week, anyway. Go figure.
Great evening. Good comments by all. Good to be in your company. Good night, America. We will win this fight. Trust me. We will win this fight.
I disagree. He had to force them into letting him be into their group, so he could monitor their agenda. I think it's great to have someone on our side reporting what they are up to and fighting back.
I would bet the last dime in my pocket he hasn't been back because he is being blocked from going back. They are either hiding the times, changing them, or something because Allen West is not a person to cut and run.
If West has not been back to a CBC meeting he is showing good taste by staying away from those bigots. How many members of the caucus are now under investigation for ethics violations?
I think what really happened was someone called the CBC and said "the Colonel was delivering chicken today". They delightfully assumed it was KFC and when LTC West walked in, they were sadly mistaken. It appears liberals haven't tried CFA, so they should have been delighted.
Rep Hastings : "The entire CBC is offended today...mmm, gulp, gulp...and we refuse to eat this 'stuff' West brought by today...mmm, hey, are there any biscuits left? Pass them over here. Where's that watermelon?"
Ahhh, there's the rub. He didn't bring the watermelon. Shame on you, Rep. West.
I mean, it's not like he tap-danced down the congressional steps like Bill "Bojangles" Robinson giving Shirley Temple a lesson with a bucket of Colonel Sanders in each hand. (Visit this link to get the proper visual...)
Neither did he roast the chicken over a flaming cross.
No! What did he do? WHAT WAS HIS CRIME?!
He merely delivered some savory Chick-Fil-A with a generous side order of those one-of-a-kind, fluffy, steaming, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits to the caucus. And what did the caucus do in response? How did they repay this kindness? Why, they looked a gift pony in the throat, that's what they did! They read all manner of sinister motives into those juicy mounds of mouth-watering chicken, that's what they did! And, I, for one, won't STAND for it! This slander of the chicken-industrial complex ends tonight! I call you, brothers and sisters, to fight this tyranny by mounting up and riding to the nearest Chick-Fil-A at once! (Or hit the BK dollar menu for some chicken nuggets if it's closer.)
