Retroactively Offended?

The racist group Congressional Black Caucus has been retroactively offended by Allen West. Apparently, he had the nerve to offer them Chic-Fil-A sandwiches and biscuits six months before libs had an apoplectic fit when the owner of a Christian-based corporation *gasp* made a statement affirming their belief in traditional marriage.

Maybe West is clairvoyant?

Check this out. You'll have to read it twice to believe the lengths to which leftists will go to find offense:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A Democratic lawmaker says Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) offended the entire Congressional Black Caucus by delivering Chick-fil-A chicken and biscuits to their weekly meeting -- and then walking out -- when it was his turn to provide the group with a formal lunch.
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told The Huffington Post that the incident happened about six months ago but is now fresh in his mind given West's recent comments in support of the fast food chain, which is run by a well-known Christian and backer of anti-gay religious organizations. Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy last week sparked a nationwide response from gay rights activists after publicly denouncing marriage equality.
"We have a rotation in the Congressional Black Caucus where every member provides the lunch one of the weeks when we meet," Hastings said in a Monday interview. The lunches, he said, are often quite delicious.
"We have fried chicken. And we have catfish and BBQ. We do not have watermelon, although sometimes people will have fruit. We serve a full course meal with collard greens. We have Jamaican beans and rice," Hastings said. But West "sent Chick-fil-A with biscuits. Ok?"
"That was an 'in your face.' Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended," he said.
Asked more specifically why lawmakers were insulted, Hastings said it was because they saw West's actions as making a statement in support of the conservative views held by Chick-fil-A leaders. West is the only Republican member of the caucus.
"He did it deliberately," Hastings said, explaining that he saw West's message as, "You know, 'That's what I think of you all.'"

Unreal.

What, no Ben & Jerry's for dessert? How offensive!

Brooke said...

I know, right?

Keads said...

Is this the best they can do? Sheesh, I've seen better on playgrounds!

Alligator said...

These folks are unhinged. Just imagine how they are going to react and handle a truly dangerous and catastrophic event if it hits the country. Pettifogging skills will not work in a national crisis. Leaders? Ha!

Always On Watch said...

Alligator's term unhinged isn't strong enough.

These liberals are out of their damn minds -- dangerously so. God help us if they have reproduced!

Brooke said...

Keads: Absolutely. A third-grader would have better reasoning skills than these buffoons!

Gator, AOW: They are indeed bat-shit crazy. I'm actually shocked Hastings didn't throw out an 'Uncle Tom' reference.

ANYTHING to stay playing the part of the wounded minority!

As Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do do not want to lose their jobs."

Alligator said...

"Responding to Hastings comments, "West said today he did not recall any controversy over the meal in question, adding that there was nothing left of the food when the meeting was over."

West is so simple and truthful in how he answered this vile STUPIDITY by Hastings it is absolutely awesome. Too bad West is not the POTUS candidate or at least the VP choice for Romney.

Didn't Hastings go though a bunch of legal trouble awhile back and barely manage to avoid prosecution?

Race relations today would be much improved, were it not for historical "revisionism" such as that recently demonstrated by Representative Hastings.

Brooke,
I'm actually shocked Hastings didn't throw out an 'Uncle Tom' reference.

Already happened -- at least in the title of the video.

You can probably find more by Googgling the following:

Allen West uncle tom

Better example:

5. Dems Have Called Me ‘Uncle Tom, a Sell-Out Oreo’

Appearing on Fox News to defend his message to Wasserman Schultz, West tried to justify his remarks by saying he had been a victim of racial discrimination from Democrats. “I have been called Uncle Tom, a sell-out Oreo…

Brooke said...

Gator: I really like West. I've listened to many interviews with him on the Michael Savage and Tammy Bruce show.

Hmm.... Hastings... Turn most dem rocks over and you find vermin...

Thersites: The scary thing is that the revisionism is now happening in immediate REAL TIME. No need to wait for memories to fade, no one is even paying attention in the first place!

AOW: Oh, I can put away my shock now... *sigh*

As I said, unreal.

How dare West step off the plantation. And yes, I'm going to say it... The HOUSE SLAVE is the one berating him!!!

Buckle up, This election is going to be completely crazy.

Stanley Kowalski said...

This one made me think of you and Cyclesmith. ;)

Brooke said...

Stan: This is our plan for tonight.

On a related vein...

Neither are safe if you have sensitive ears around.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Huh ?

Thersites said...

You make me long for a reprised MST3K movie series....

Ducky's here said...

Interesting, the Black Caucus didn't take any position on the Chic-fil-a tempest but Eraserhead sends them fried chicken.

Guy's a freaking lawn jockey.

Brooke said...

Thanks for showing us your racism, again, Ducky.

You'd be having a fit if one of us used the term "lawn jockey" against a Democratic/liberal black person.

But once again, you demonstrate the double standard of the left.

Oh, and Eraserhead was a terrible movie.

Ducky's here said...

Eraserhead is an ethnic term, Brooke.

Kind of dropped away in the late 80's but it fits.

Brooke said...

I suppose. I was not familiar with that particular slur. I just Googled it. Pathetic, really. What a juvenile mind to come up with/use it.

Now as for the movie, I'm no professional film critic, but I could get into what I think of such a movie.

I'm sure we would disagree!

I think of that film as more of shock/schlock... The director has little real talent so he drops 'disturbing' imagery or interactive scenes and requires that we, the more thoughtful/imaginative audience figure out his 'meaning'.

Speedy G said...

David Lynch is a pretty good director. You may not have loved Twin Peaks, but the guy does make a thought provoking film...

Speedy G said...

...especially for a Lacanian.

Speedy G said...

Maybe you had to be there.

Speedy G said...

...or perhaps merely imagine that you were. ;)

Brooke said...

How fragile a thing the mind is, hm?

Oh, and I'll wager that Zizek is clever before Lynch could figure out how to put his pants on in the morning.

Thersites said...

Maybe. But I'll always anjoy Lynch's dancing midgets...
