By The Right Scoop


It’s amazing how Allen West’s comments surge through the media like a missile. Today on The Five they did a segment on his recent comments about Obama wanting Americans to be his economic slaves and predictably Beckel was outraged OUTRAGED! But running to West’s defense was Gutfeld who, like most of us, loved that Allen West used that kind of language to make his point and like anyone who heard even a sliver of the context, Gutfeld knew West was talking about economic slavery. Only an idiot like Bob would think he meant actual slavery. Of course, what was disappointing was that The Five just played the same old edited clip by that crackpot news organization who cut West’s sentence off right after the word ‘slave’ just to make it more extreme. All the while I’m screaming I have the full context right here. Ugh.

    Perino is such a RINO hack, it’s pathetic.

    • Skye Lowry

      Agreed! She was driving me crazy with her “Who was that guy who lost his seat… Blah blah blah…”
      Coming into the ring with no facts or names is such a lefty thing to do. If you haven’t done the research then don’t join the fight. What an airhead!

  • badbadlibs

    Is beckle on the clip? There’s no way I can watch that vicious loon before dinner.

  • BSScoop

    Slavery in the American psyche conjures images of blacks picking cotton in Mississippi and getting whipped and hung. There are many forms of slavery and Mankind will NEVER be free of it since our sinful nature is baked in the cake. The colonel needs to expand on this rhetoric and explain that slavery can be taxation, dependence, or the silencing of dissent. It can also be ignorance, a sin of which the media is quite guilty.

    Freedom in an absolute sense is impossible in a fallen world. The American experiment was beautiful and I emphasize the word, “was”. Our goal must be to remake America and clearly define the terms. The Left has completely controlled the narrative for a century now, to the point that even die – hard republicans don’t know freedom anymore.

    BS
    Don’t Tread On Me

  • Captain_Maynard

    Beckel can kiss my smooth black behind. West is completely right! Obama is using the EPA, the DOJ, the Supreme Court, and his executive orders to enslave Americans. And I don’t mean that in a hyperbolic manner.

    And Obama is not just enslaving Americans. He’s killing them too, in the womb and outside of it (See Fast and Furious for an example of the latter)!

    Conclusion? Obama = Evil.

    Please Mr West, do not back down. DOUBLE down!

    • NJK

      Ditto.

    • Dukehoopsfan

      Triple down!

  • MikeTheEngineer

    Beckle, Unlike you, West has fought for the right to free speech. You shut up and speak when you have something intelligent to say. You think you are on this show to express your side. No, you are on this show to demonstrate how ignorant, arrogant, obnoxious, condescending, and hypocritical you progressives are. I don’t think I have ever heard you utter one thing founded in truth and not shrouded by progressive spin. Enjoy being Fox’s organ monkey you dolt.

    • MikeTheEngineer

      By the way Beckle, you are good at your job.

      • keninil

        I think you are right. Sometimes I think it is Beckle’s job to lob lefty views into the fray to be beat down by the panel or answered by the guest.

    • nehemiahreturns

      Well said, Mike – very well said. He’s the freak show at the circus.

  • xlogic1013

    Beckel outraged? Unlike me, he doesn’t want to hear the whole thing in context. He jumped the gun with no credibility to back up his anger. This is from the same man that made an outrageous statement about Michelle Malkin recently. As far as I am concerned, he doesn’t care about facts! Sad!

    • crosshr

      X, you define what a far left is. their idealogs are more like of a fart, the sound always strange and unimpresive, it stinks up a spot and dissipates in the air ! Beckel is disgusting and a waste of human being

  • Nukeman60

    I don’t think Allen West actually meant – to be a slave…that President Obama wants us to be slaves‘ – Perino

    You think? These people, like most politicians and almost all of the media love to live in 15-20 second sound bites. It’s what causes the sensationalism and what pays their wages. It’s about time we rejected any and all of them that do this. Take the whole clip or take none of it.

    Even when they argue against a point, they give credence to it by the way they present it. Enough already.

    • keninil

      If West would have said “indentured servant”, which is closer to what he meant than “slave”, the general public would not have had a clue. Perino and company are smart enough to explain this instead of fumbling with the word slave, implying beatings and whipping that folks associate with slavery.

      • Nukeman60

        I see your point. However, I really think their problem is they never saw the entire speech. It appears they only saw the short clip for their show segment because all of them get into arguing whether he should have been ‘softer’ or not, rather than arguing that he meant something totally different than what they assumed.

  • aPLWBinAK

    “It’s amazing how Allen West’s comments surge through the media like a missile.”…..there’s really a very simple explanation for that, West speaks without a P.C. filter, and it makes the communistic MSM crack their cookies….their entire existance is predicated on lies, and they do not know what to do when they hear a ‘truth’, it’s too foreign to their mindset.

  • nehemiahreturns

    West is the new Palin – the left is terrified of him so he’s their target. As much as I hate listening to Beckel regurgitate the well-learned leftist mantras, I think it’s important that we understand the enemy. Beckel is a perfect source of information in that regard.

    • c4pfan

      He sure is!

    • 1mathteacher

      I agree about his being the left’s new target. Nothing is hated more by the left than a woman or a black person who doesn’t take all the standard liberal positions. You can see it in Clarence Thomas’s book. They tried to destroy him because he was a successful black man who thought for himself and didn’t fall in line. I’m sure Col. West is well aware that he’s in the cross-hairs. He’s brave, for sure.

  • 911Infidel

    Alan West has what there Bob? No dude, you got the big mouth. One of the big differences between LtCol West and an agitprop jackass like you Bob, is that LtCol West not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk. In Afghanistan and Iraq. He was a excellent combat commander. What have you done with your life, other than manage that loser Mondale’s campaign and play undersec of state for Dhimi Critter? The dude has steel for nutz, while you Bob are just plain nutz.

    Take a flying leap off a short pier you jerk.

    Note to self: Dana is looking rather marvelous. Repubik women are so freak’n hot.

    • poljunkie

      As my husband likes to say: Shes been sent to the farm.

      • 911Infidel

        Would that be the good-looking chick molding machine that God uses for Repubik women? Cause thems my kind of farm girls. LOL.

        • poljunkie

          He thinks FOX decides there is a long term contract with them they sign and then they are sent out for make overs. They have to be pretty good to begin with.

          • 911Infidel

            FOX does prefer blondes. Then again so does sports. In my town, you gotta be pretty and blond to be a sports reporter. At least so it would seem.

            • poljunkie

              My son is about the only guy I know that prefers brunettes and redheds over blondes to date. HA.

              • 911Infidel

                LOL. That’s cute. Oh and your son and I have something in common. I married a cute brunette. Blondes aren’t the only ones having fun!! :p)

    • badbadlibs

      That was a like…er…except for the last line…. being a woman myself you understand ;)

      • 911Infidel

        I’m an old-fashioned male. I like women. And I haven’t been as well indoctrinated as many of the metrosexual males have been. Repubik women ARE hot. That’s just the natural order of things. Dhimiratz: bad and ugly. Repubiks: not so much.

  • c4pfan

    Another example why I don’t watch The Five.

    • marketcomp

      This show makes me sick! None of these people understand on this show that Col. West meant being a slave economically. If took them several minutes to finally explain what Col. West meant. Moreover, who is Bob Beckal to say anything about what anyone says given the filthy dirty words that come out of his mouth, often. He could not hold a candle to Allen West.

      • WordsFailMe

        I only pick up a clip or two here, but I’ve seen some folks willing to stick it back to this trained monkey blowhard every time they hose in down and forklift him onto a chair.

        Beckel looks like a poorly constructed medicine ball but he make one heck of a punching bag. Get’ em Greg. Put up your dukes, girls. You wanted equal pay, now freaking earn it!

  • MaxineCA

    I started watching the clip because I really like Greg, but couldn’t continue with Bob Big Mouth (ignoramus) Beckel shooting his mouth off again. (He’s the reason I don’t watch The Five.) I’m very disappointed in FNC that they didn’t show the whole clip of West.

    Wish we could clone Allen West. He, and folks like him, are what we need to take our country back! Romney could take many lessons from West who is an honest, clear spoken patriot who will not be intimidated. Love West! I love the fact that he’s finally getting some media coverage and not backing down.

  • keninil

    Gutfeld did a much better job at defending West than Rince Priebus did the other day.

    West has simple arguments “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then its a duck” whether he is talking about enslaving people or Congress people being communists.

    • Linky1

      Democrats and RINOS fear Allen West because he speaks his mind, not the party platform.

      • WordsFailMe

        Linky: Just wait until these liberals meet you! I’ll hold your jacket any day, girl!

        • Linky1

          I have put a few liberals in their place in my lifetime. Needless to say, it wasn’t pretty, for the liberals, but, I will definitely keep your offer in mind! :)

  • NJK

    I no longer watch FOX. They feign ignorance, and this is how they lie. Or they lie by ommission. Obama is so evil, and they all just keep this charade going. Put them out of business, just like the rest of the propagandists. Quit watching them.

    • WordsFailMe

      You’re on fire my friend, sacred, pure fire!

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Beckel has some stones being “outraged.” Give me a break. How about all of the Democrats walking out of the Holder contempt vote in Congress saying that the only reason why Holder was being charged was because he was black? Or how about Nancy Pelosi saying that the only reason why Holder was being attacked was because Republicans wanted to take away the right of blacks to vote in some states? Democrats have been making wild an unsubstantiated accusations for years now and are just bent out of shape when someone throws that type of language right back at them. Good for Allen West! He is one of the last true conservative hopes in this country and he should be applauded for what he said. Obama wants nothing better than to turn this country into a complete welfare state. It’s about time people stood up to bums like Beckel and called them out for what they are, nothing but miserable hypocrites.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jude-OConnor/100002766170448 Jude O’Connor

      You mentioned welfare State, there are 126 welfare programs by the Federal Govt. Google it, I did.

  • WordsFailMe

    I think Gutfeld is starting to get it. When this war is ended and the last liberal has performed the last indecent act on a member of an alien species, we will return to civility.

    Until then, Beckel, you self-loathing moron, keep blowing.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    I appreciate Gutfield doing the right thing.

    Beckel just disgusts me on any given day.

  • B-Funk

    Someone explain to me how someone who’s economically dependent upon an all-powerful nanny gov’t is any less a slave that someone working for an “evil plantation owner”. The person who’s working in the field at least has their mind and heart as sovereign. The first is locked in a prison for their mind… Sounds like the Matrix…

  • http://black-avenger-1.livejournal.com/profile VirusX

    Beckel is a fat scumbag, and I’m not going to watch or listen to Hannity much, anymore, because he continues to kiss this punk’s fat ass. I’d like to see him say half of what he’s said to West’s face. If anyone has a mouth problem, its Beckel. He is a fat, stinking, vulgar bully that likes to push women around on TV with his foul language and probable reeking breath, and he will never say the derogatory comments he makes about men to the men, especially a guy like West, who he knows full well would have no problem taking it back to Beckel on any level Beckel was ready to take it to.

  • BS61

    I fast forward through any Beckel on regular TV, can’t do it here so I’ll skip getting mad – despite loving GG!

    I did hear that one of the replys to Chris Rock’s White Independence tweet said that slavery existed for 2000 years before our country was founded and we got rid of it in 100 years!

  • JoelDick

    It bothers them so much because they know it’s TRUE!

  • Yazz55

    Taking things completely out of context is the only way liberal progressives know how to report things.

  • http://twitter.com/volgeek Tim Jaggers

    Beckel is ignorant of history to claim that blacks were the only ethnic group enslaved. There were native Americans, Mexicans, and even whites enslaved during the early days of this country.

  • http://twitter.com/Ramparts360 Ramparts360

    Beckel doesn’t think for himself. He does and says what he’s told to on that daily telephone call.

  • kong1967

    The left has said some of the most incendiary things you could ever hear, including calling Bush “Hitler”, our soldiers “Nazi’s”, and Sharpton called Obama a “House ni**er”. Blacks make references to the “n” word and “slave” all the time, yet West isn’t allowed. Oh, that’s right….only white liberals and black liberals can do that.

    Hypocritical pieces of garbage.

    Beckel isn’t fit to shine Allen West’s shoes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donald-Pappas/100002772471588 Donald Pappas

    Hey Bob, Bush was called Hilter for how many years? You think Allen West’s statements are outrageous? How about Hank Johnson would thinks an island will tip over if too many people are on one side? How about Andre Carson that thinks the education system should be modeled after Islamic madrasses? Shouldn’t members of Congress be given an IQ test when they are sworn in? That would eliminate a lot of Democrats from office.

  • aZjimbo

    beckel has said more crazy statements lately than anyone. Matter of fact he must know someone at Fox because his fat ass should have been fired already. Allen West ticks off the libs just the SP does. Shoot, that means he is doing a great job. I wish more on the right would piss off the left.
