Allen West: “I am tired of white liberals invoking the heinous memory of lynchings”

Allen West just nailed it on his Facebook. He elaborates a bit more than he did yesterday in his interview on Fox News:

Yes, Trayvon Martin shooting was a tragedy which the usual suspect race baiters and progressive media are using for political gain. Where is the outrage for the recent killings in Chicago of a 6-month-old black baby, 16-year-old black honor student, or 17-year-old black teenager who refused to join a gang? The focus is on the symptoms which promote political gain, not the disease which now afflicts the black community. And I am tired of white liberals invoking the heinous memory of lynchings.

    Is it possible to call for the arrest of the race baiters since they are inciting violence?  Though experience they know this is the usual results.  They have been stirring people up even before the jury spoke in the name of “justice” which apparently defined as guilty.

    • Orangeone

      tshtsh Yes but Holder will NEVER do it because a race war is what they need to implement martial law and keep the boy king in power.  Holder yesterday incited more violence with his comments.

    The liberals need to remember the KKK were DEMOCRATS and until he died, one was in Congress as part of the Democrat party!

    In 513 Days Between Trayvon Shooting and Zimmerman Verdict, 11,106 Blacks Murdered by OTHER BLACKS.

      “In 513 Days Between Trayvon Shooting and Zimmerman Verdict, 11,106 Blacks Murdered by other blacks.”
      Trayvon is the only one that merits protest?
      The protesters are saying, “Hey we kill our own! Can’t have a white-hispanic killing one in self-defense while our white-black President waxes paternal about him!”

    I’ve had it with the white liberals too Allen because they only use blacks for their own political gain and those who believe them deserve what they get.
    Worst part is conservatives have the same problem because we have allowed the GOP to co opt our cause so in reality we’re really no better unless we turn it around.

    • Orangeone

      njmom And yet 95% of blacks voted for Obama.

  • So True! Allen West is a rare find in the political arena today and is a True Conservative American Hero! He has my vote anytime he needs it! I salute you Sir!I believe as George Zimmerman did that Trayvon was out looking for trouble and here is why.
    Few know about Travon’s Criminal Record – It was while a student at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School that Martin’s disciplinary and criminal …past started to be documented by various government authorities. It was at Krop that the 6′ 2″ 11th grader was suspended last February for possession of marijuana. Within the opening weeks of the 2012-2013 school year, Martin was seen by a School Resource Officer on the school’s surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.”
    It was then that the police officer stated he saw Martin mark up a door with a permanent marker, defacing it with “WTF”. (Not quite the innocent 12 year old baby face boy the media constantly portrays is it?)
    The next day the school police searched his backpack searching for the graffiti marker.
    Instead the officer reported finding 12 pieces of women’s jewelry according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald.
    Besides the numerous silver wedding bands and diamond earrings, the pack also contained a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report was described as a “burglary tool”.
    The police report went on to state the officer asked Martin if the jewelry belonged to his family or a girlfriend.

      faustmanv And it will all come out as Zimmerman’s attorneys move forward and those terrorized by the thug-supporters sue for damages.  Time to set the record straight on the thug and make it go viral, rub it in the face of the “protesters” at every opportunity.

  • Rshill7

    I guess Zimmerman, after being violently assaulted, should have saved the bullet and instead given Trayvon a trophy and a bouquet of roses.
    Why is it no one on the left ever remembers that Zimmerman was attacked by this “child” who was 4 full inches taller than he? They never say anything about him buying and selling guns illegally, or guns, or getting in so many fights, or being a thief? The jury never even got to hear what a dirtbag this “child” was. That’s why the prosecution is going to get sued, and hopefully disbarred. NBC is getting sued already.
    Yeah, they don’t make “children” like they used to.

    How can democrats live with themselves? They promote racial hatred and laws that do nothing to save the lives of the innocent.
    A plague invaded this nation via the democrats. A plague of hate and stupidity of heights that are staggering.

  • E Lee Zimmerman

    I’m not tired of it.  Like I suggested, folks, grow used to it.  We’re all racist now.  Even you, Mr. West.

  • steprock

    What to ticks me off is that if it had been black on black, No one would even care. Wouldn’t even make local front page news.

  • frisky

    the sad thing is, the public lets these race baiters, be racists………..people should stop listening to these liars…………………..stop voting for liberals, stop listening to cnn and msnbc, stop falling for their traps…..fight back,…………

    • CalCoolidge

      frisky I’d like to fight back, but until the Koch Brothers buy CNN and Rush Limgaugh buys MS NBC….what do I do?

  • Prior to Obama’s election and his subsequent campaign to divide us every which way to Sunday. I thought the younger generation was making great strides in closing the gap between the races.
    After 5yrs of Obama…it seems we are further apart than ever.
    This week has been extraordinary…..the black community have thrown the door wide open and shown themselves to be the racists. It is the black population that is acting out with a lynch mob mentality. Repeating the history they abhor.
    Essentially they have dropped out of the human race deciding they DESERVE special treatment, zero accountability and absolution without contrition….using race as a crutch…apparently FOREVER!

    • CalCoolidge

      sallyjohanna Yes, but repeating the history they abhor is justice.  It supposedly happened to “them” (well someone else 100 years ago), so it is only justice that they do it now.  After all, it was Thurgood Marshall who responded to comments like yours by saying – you guys have been discriminating all along.  Now it’s our turn.
      And FWIW, the KKK lynched more whites than blacks.

      • Orangeone

        CalCoolidge sallyjohanna I suspect if we peeled the layers off the onion, we would find blacks were treated much better than white women.

      • CalCoolidge sallyjohanna Are you advocating that racial hatred and divide continue indefinitely?  In this modern day and age we can not heal this wound by all belonging to the human RACE and behave as decent individuals and as groups? Be responsible citizens and live together. 
        It is clear to me that GZ was targeting what he thought was a theif, Trayvon was targeting GZ as a creepy ass cracker. This is a calamity, one mistake after another that led to fatal results. It is not about race. It is about crime.   
        You think the black community can do and say anything because we OWE it to them? No I didn’t enslave anyone and I try to live my life with personal responsibility and I expect my fellow man to do the same regardless of color, gender or religion. 
        I am in the Atlanta area. As I stated, before Obama, I was witnessing the younger generation stamp out racism. You never hear about the KKK and I do not know what FWIW stands rarely hear about skinheads…society was in the process of rejecting that ideology and they are dwindling or underground.  Maybe these foolish demonstrations will start the hatred again. Do you advocate that?
        The race baiting that is going on by the LMSM, racist activist, and the black community and their liberal supporters is exploitation to divide us and keep us divided so their is unrest. 
        The Jury by the grace of God and through his wisdom HAD the courage to come to a just verdict DESPITE the immense pressure.  To try this case on unmitigated bias and emotion to satisfy the need to have a sacrificial lamb on the altar for all the perceived crimes of racism for 140 years ago. 
        The hostage situation is OVER. Start looking to and advocating for a future without racism.

  • steprock

    WSJ had an article talking about racial justice, whatever that’s supposed to mean. Then they had another suggesting a civil case and that Zimmerman may have been motivated by, wait for it, unconscious racism. Can’t make this stuff up.

    • CalCoolidge

      steprock I keep saying it’s like original sin.  If you were born “white,” you’re guilty.

      • Orangeone

        CalCoolidge steprock Here’s an idea, let’s put them on boats and ship them back to their mother country of Africa. The conservatives can stay.

    Oh there’s going to be a change all right. I can’t say what this man is saying. Holder’s ‘Just-Us’ Dept. would be at my doorstep in a heartbeat.

  • ajroo

    Allen West may be the my favorite person in the world.  The African American community deserved a great man like him to be our first black President.  It will always disappoint me that we got such a failure and horrible man filling that role in our history.
    Colonel West is a man i admire greatly, and it makes me sick he isnt in our government but Al Franken is…..
