Once again this is exactly why I love Allen West, because he never fails to deliver the unvarnished truth no matter who objects. In this instance he’s responding to a LA Times article called “America’s dirtiest job: Justifying Allen West” that focuses on Reince Priebus’ interview with Wolf Blitzer the other day, condemning Priebus for not condemning West’s recent comments on Obama being a proponent of economic slavery. Allen West had this to say:
I really feel that it is demeaning to me to think that I need some individual to justify me and my existence. Look, I went through 22 years being in the military, I rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel, I have a bachelor and 2 masters degrees. And for these white liberals to believe they can have this condescending manner toward black conservatives that we need to have approval from our quote unquote, I guess “masters”, for us to be able to speak – see that’s where the true racism really lies governor is with the white liberals who don’t want to see someone such as myself that broke away from their dependency class and is out here and able to possibly contend against them with the policies that they are promoting that’s destroying the black community. I know I’m their #1 target and it just emboldens me to speak out even stronger.
And the heck with them if they think someone else needs to approve of me and what I stand for.
