Shocker: West Doesn't Like CBC
Losing Allen West from the Congressional Black Caucus is like Hannibal Lecter cancelling his dinner reservations.
"It is unconscionable when a fellow CBC Member, Congressman Andre Carson, comes to South Florida and claims that some in the Tea Party would love to see black Americans 'hanging on a tree,'" West wrote Wednesday in a letter to CBC chair Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), which he also released to the media. "It is appalling to hear another CBC colleague, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, say 'The Tea Party can go straight to hell.'Considering West's history of Islamophobic comments he is hardly one to talk. Carson's comments were over the top. There are elements in the tea party that have been racist towards President Barack Obama. However, labeling an entire group of people racists is a bit much. As for West leaving the CBC, who cares. As with did during his fight with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, he is once again running to the media for attention. Much like West's fake potential Senate run, this is about West promoting himself.
