I Back Allen West!

Now it would be easy to make the case that the whole Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Syphilis Test) Allen West conflict is only a matter of racists attacking a black man. After all, to paraphrase the words of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this congressman. Why is he different?

But I cannot make that case. There is more to it than black and white. Let's not forget that Wasserman Schultz has a long history of attacking Allen West personally -- dating back to her antics during the 2010 election campaign and now in a pointedly insulting floor speech that violates House traditions on courtesy towards other members. And for all the hysteria from Democrats about West's response to her attack, I don't see the contents of his email to her to be all that objectionable.

From: Z112 West, Allen Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Democrats have gone ballistic -- in particular over the perceived sexist insult in stating that she is "not a Lady" and will no longer be treated like one. The female Democrats in the House want action taken against West, and the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus has taken the unprecedented step of publicly attacking a member of the caucus -- something they do not even do when a member has been caught engaging in criminal conduct. Liberal Jewish groups that said not a word when Jewish Congressman Eric Cantor was attacked as "childish" by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (who demanded that the highest ranking Jew in the leadership of either party in either house of Congress be excluded from debt ceiling negotiations for daring to offer a solution dislike by President Obama) have rushed to Debbie Wasserman Schultz's defense. So I'm again back to that paraphrase of Sheila Jackson Lee -- I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this congressman. Why is he different?

Yeah, I think that picture explains it. It isn't merely that Allen West is black -- after all, the Left is more than willing to allow African-Americans to say all sorts of outrageous things, even if they are documentably untrue, without criticism. And they are certainly prepared to allow much more blatantly disgusting attacks against women -- the DNC and various other Democrat groups have raised tons of money by engaging in vile, despicable, and disgusting sexist attacks upon Sarah Palin, and have even done so during Debbie Wasserman Schultz's tenure as head of the Democrat Party. So as I've noted, this isn't about race per se or about gender (replace "Lady" with "Gentleman" and that email could have been sent to any male member of the House without raising an eyebrow), nor is it about Wasserman Schultz's religion. What it is about is Allen West being the most prominent, most popular, most outspoken black Republican in America today and the need to tear him down before he can make a run for the United States Senate or even receive the vice presidential nomination on the GOP ticket in 2012. That is why we have seen such demagoguery from Democrats.

Now Debbie Wasserman Schultz is out there playing the victim. It is really a rather pathetic thing, given that she is the head of the Democrat Party. That is a role that invites attack, especially when the person holding the spot is also a sitting elected official. If she cannot role with the punches that come with the job, does she really belong in it? She would do better to look to the example of Nancy Pelosi, who had the dignity not to use her vagina as a shield when the going got tough and her opponents mounted fierce attacks against her.

My belief here is that Allen West has nothing to apologize for here -- and that none of us should hold our breath waiting for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to apologize for the ongoing campaign she has mounted against West since before the election. But I do think that Wasserman Schultz needs to thank her lucky stars that the House of Representatives does not follow the customs and practices of the UK's House of Commons -- she wouldn't last five minutes there.

In the end, it really comes back to the very sort of situation aptly described in this clip.

This is a circus. It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured. . . rather than hung from a tree.

So let me say to Congressman Allen West -- I stand with you, sir, as you stand up to those on the Left who seek to destroy you for being a voice of integrity courageously speaking out for the sort of common sense principles that Americans are crying out for.

And to Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz -- I continue to laugh contemptuously at you, for you have once again shown yourself to be a bad joke that isn't funny. But I do make this "long distance dedication" to you.
