Skip to comments.Dem Congressman (MORAN): West "Not Representative Of African-American Community" (IDIOT ALERT!)
Posted on 02/01/2012 1:02:07 PM PST by MissesBush
"People like Mr. [Allen] West, and Governor Brewer and so on, particularly Mr. West, is not only not representative of the African-American community or of the Republican Party, let alone of the American public. So what he says really is of little or no consequence, but it's unfortunate," Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said about Rep. Allen West telling liberal leaders to "get the hell" out of the country.
"He just seems clueless not that he has climbed abroad ship. He's climbed this ladder of opportunity that was constructed by so many of his ancestors' sweat, sacrifice, blood, you know they did everything they could for his generation to be successful. But now that he's climbed abroad ship, instead of reaching down and steadying the ladder, he wants to push it off. 'I'm up here. If you're not with me, too bad.' And President Obama, fortunately, is the kind of guy that says 'I was very fortunate to get where I am and I'm going to spend my life trying to steady that ladder of opportunity by reducing college tuition and training our workers, trying to get a decent job for everybody. Making sure that while I'm African-American, it really doesn't matter. What matters is my commitment to public service, my love for this country and I'm going to leave a constructive legacy,'" he said.
Moran says that Obama "doesn't engage in this nonsense" and calls him our "Lion King" while comparing his Republican detractors to "hyenas."

Small, but very important, correction.
I hope Allen West thinks him for the compliment and then slaps him around for suggesting that blacks must all remain on the plantation and behave the same.
What would Moran know about the people West represents? Oh, I can answer that! Absolutely nothing.
But he should be!
It's amazing Moran walks upright. Idiocy this profound has to be an evolutionary throwback.
Another white person who thinks they speak for minorities just because he believes in wealth redistribution.
Moran is a typical racist rat. He’s offended that an African-American politician is not following in the footsteps of Jackson or Sharpton. Kudos to Hon.Allen
West who has done more for the USA than Moran and all of his RAT cohorts combined.
Now that’s the audacity of stupidity and racial stereotyping.
Col. West served this Nation in uniform and now Congress. He has not used his ethnicity as a crutch because he is not a hyphenated American.
The ‘Lion’ who Moran mentions has not served this Nation well in any capacity.
Moran is mentally unstable and it shows.
Was gonna say something .... but you covered all the bases!!
Oh, when, when, WHEN will this idiot be put out to pasture??????
I worked on a pubbie challenger’s campaign way back when against this guy and he was as idiotic then as he is now...
this even after he beat his wife and a little BLACK kid who rubbed up against his car...
libs HAVE NO SHAME!!!!
Rep. West got elected. That means he represents a whole lot of people:
One House member, on average, represents more than 640,000 citizens
Jim Moran is a loud mouth punk. He always has been. He pushes people around and intimidates them because he knows that as a congress(person) no one would call his bluff. He’s got a bald eagle mouth and a hummingbird ass.
Yeah, Alan West is employed, educated, and has had a successful career serving his country.
He is most certainly NOT representative of the majority of today’s Africa-American community.
He is what they should strive to be.
Yeah; it's more like the picture below for the MAJORITY of the tribes in the inner-cities:
The word “plantation” (which drives liberals crazy) was never more appropriate. He sounds exactly like a southern planter talking about Nat Turner.
Keep 'em on the plantation, Jim!
The tragedy of Congressman LTC Allen West is that he did not bring dozens of his respected combat military peers with him to also run for public office.
I’m sure that during his military career he really admired a bunch of officers and senior NCOs who demonstrated to his satisfaction that they had what it takes. He served in the 1st ID, the 2nd ID, and was an Army exchange officer with the USMC. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
If nothing else, there should be an organization that recruits, trains and equips such officers, so that instead of just retiring at 20, or being RIF’ed, they have a place to go without treading water for even a moment.
In April 2000, Jim Moran accused a black eight-year-old boy at a recreational center parking lot of trying to take his car keys and of threatening to shoot him and steal his campaign-subsidized car...
According to the boys parents, the boy was merely admiring Morans car, a 1999 Toyota Avalon, and told him he liked it. The boy told the Washington Times, He choked me and then cussed at me. I thought he was going to kidnap or kill me. All I told him was that I liked his car. Moran responded, Its all lies.
I live in VA - I know.
Filthy, ignorant racist.
I love that and am going to steal it. Like the southwesternism "all hat and no cattle."
That's because he thinks for himself.
That's correct. He's a role model.
When you see the flak, its time to release the bomb load.
Go West, young man!
sorry its true.
Just thought you and everyone should know.
