Blowhard liberal Bob Beckel went off on Allen West on The Five today,
ďEverybody has a right to speak even if itís stupid things that they sayÖ When I said he was a blowhard I know where that comes from because I am too. I donít know what he ever did. I went down and registered blacks in the south. Did he ever do that? I got beat up by a bunch of rednecks in the south. Did he ever do it? I went and demonstrated in front of a Dennyís because they wouldnít serve black people. Did he ever do it?Ö He called us a racist which is absolutely obscene. Itís OK Allen I forgive you. Youíre ignorant and itís sophomoric.ď
So let's get this straight -- Bob Beckel, a white guy (and a Yankee, no less) has the audacity to tell a black man from a southern state what racism is, and to call him ignorant for daring to disagree with his betters. Mind you, the black man is a conservative, a congressman, and a career military officer who put his life on the line in combat so that Beckel can freely spew his ignorant crap on the airwaves of this great country. Seems to me that Beckel is the one who is ignorant and sophomoric, not West.
But then again, maybe Beckel had a point and was right to double-down on his criticism of the Congressman. I mean, Congressman West had the audacity to say that white liberals have a condescending attitude towards black people. Why shouldn't Beckel call out West, an uppity black man who doesn't know his place is supposed to be in the ranks of liberals, following the lead of more enlightened white liberals like Beckel? And after all, Beckel did show himself to be the bigger man -- he even forgave the retired Army Lieutenant Colonel for not knowing his place and criticizing his betters. It is a good thing that America has smart white guys like Beckel to tell dumb black people what they ought to believe.
And who knows -- if Fox News has the integrity to fire Beckel for this second display of racism against West in the last two days, perhaps he go to work for the white billionaire spending tons of money to try to end West's political career.
