Hey Allen West, Being A Slave Catcher & Harriet Tubman Aren’t The Same

The minute Rep. Maxine waters came out asking for the CBC to be “unleashed” on Obama, I knew this would happen. I figured it would be a matter of time before Fox picked up the story and feature one of their resident conservative racial enablers to weigh in on this. Well, as usual, they didn’t disappoint me. They actually managed to bring one of the biggest and best slave catchers to spreak truth to power. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.)

WASHINGTON — Freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that he is “the modern day Harriet Tubman” leading people away from the plantation, which is overseen by “perceived leaders in the black community” like Jesse Jackson who bow to the wishes of white liberals.

During an appearance on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” West said black Democrats have consistently failed to address high unemployment in the black community and, in the meantime, continue to take black votes for granted come election time.

“So you have this 21st Century plantation … where the Democrat party has forever taken the black vote for granted, and you have established certain black leaders who are nothing more than the overseers of that plantation,” West said. “And now the people on that plantation are upset because they’ve been disregarded, disrespected and their concerns are not cared about.”

“So I’m here as the modern day Harriet Tubman to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”

West, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told show host Laura Ingraham that she was “absolutely” correct to say that Congressional black leaders like Reps. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) or Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) function as a “plantation boss.”

“What you end up having — I’m going to be brutally honest — is that white liberals have turned over to certain leaders or ‘perceived leaders’ in the black community, like a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or Maxine Waters or Barbara Lee, and said, you know, pacify and keep the black community firmly behind us, regardless of the failures of our social welfare policies,” West continued.

The freshman Republican said the fact that black leaders have done nothing in response to the recent spate of flash mobs in U.S. cities is proof of their disconnect from the black community. This summer has been marked by flash mobs in several cities, including Philadelphia and Cleveland; the uprising is thought to be fueled by growing discontent among unemployed urban youth

“That’s the absence of this ‘leadership’ in the black community,” West added, “which as I say are nothing more than overseers of this 21st century plantation.” (source)

Now I would say that there’s a smidgen of truth to whsat this clown said. Yes, it is as though the Black vote is taken for granted by Democrats. But I’ll be damned if this Negro and or the Republican party has done anything to remedy the high unemployment situation in the country, much less within the Black community. But no, let him tell it, he’s running around wearing a cape with an “R” on it saving Negroes. Please, Isn’t this man down with the very party who has yet to introduce at least one bill to tackle unemployment by creating jobs?

But he’s the “modern day Harriet Tubman,” right? Negro please! back in the day Harriet Tubman would have shot your Black ass with that pistol she used to pack. How dare this asshole suggest that the Republican party has an answer to remedy a damn thing that struggling poor folks are currently dealing with in America. Frankly, I find this man’s assertion very insulting. But hey, I guess you gotta say what you gotta say to keep your Sambo rations coming from Massa.

And just to show you his true colors, check this out:

West later sent a statement to The Huffington Post to clarify his Harriet Tubman analogy.

“Harriet Tubman is known for her efforts to rescue slaves and bring them off of the plantations to freedom. It took one person to begin a process which eventually led to the end of slavery,” West said. “Today in the black community, we see individuals who are either wedded to a subsistence check or an employment check.”

“Democrat physical enslavement has now become liberal economic enslavement, which is just as horrible.”

“When unemployment is at more than 15 percent in the black community and we see the vicious cycle of fatherless children generation after generation, we need to find a new path,” West continued. “I am willing to stand up for the Conservative principles that I believe can help move our community forward.”

As far as I can see he’s the one dependent on that government check. Hell, what has he done other than serve in the military only to be kicked out, and now sucking the federal teat by way of being a Teapublican obstructionist in Congress? Now watch this slave-catcher dance the jig for his bosses:

UPDATE: I caught the following clip from Rep. Maxine Waters’ appearance on Hardball with Chris Matthews. And lemme tell you: you gotta see this. Waters and the CBC held yet another one of their job fairs today down in Atlanta. And guess what unemployed individual came to see her specifically under the advice of Rep. Allen West? None other than his own goddamned brother.

So yeah, West is  a hot shot, loud-talking, jive-ass Negro with his vitriol but then sends his own damn brother to see Maxcine Waters and the CBC… oops, I mean plantation bosses, for a muthafuckin’ job. If that doesn’t show just how much of a hypocrite his bitch-ass is, then I don’t know. I tell you what: it’s a damn shame when you’re a Congressman willing to fellate your party higher-ups, and you can’t even get your own brother a job… That fucking hypocrite!
