NAACP Bars Allen West From Giving Keynote Address Following His ‘Communist’ Remarks
The Blaze ^ | April 23, 2012 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 04/23/2012 10:46:00 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has taken intense heat from the media and the left over his statement that there are “78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” In the wake of the controversy that has resulted from his remarks, West, who was slated to be a speaker at an event hosted by the Martin County chapter of the NAACP this past Saturday, was disinvited from addressing the group.

Mediaite has more about the reasons behind the decision to axe the congressman as the event’s keynote speaker:

In Martin County chapter president Jerry Gore‘s own words: “There’s a certain statement he made about Communists.”

“That statement alone,” Gore added. “….We do not represent that type of atmosphere.”

I guess by “that type of atmosphere” he means an atmosphere in which Communists are identified as Communists.

The NAACP is not relevant. Just having an organization like this is racist. Screw them.

Well, it's been said that the only difference between a commie and a socialist is that the commie KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.

Since our congress if filled with Bawney Fwank and Kookcinich jackasses, it's hardly likely that they'd find too many people in congress who are that smart. In any case, since the NAACP is a racist, socialist, hate group, then maybe it's best he doesn't grace their halls.

They can give 100 reasons why he was disinvited, but they will never give the real reason.

West is an escaped slave from the Democrat Plantation.

He CANNOT be allowed to speak to the Plantation Overseers, speaking truth that might affect the revenue/vote stream for the Democrat PArty.

The NAACP was co-founded by a Communist, W.E.B. DuBois, and CP youth groups were known as (pun intended, I’m sure) DuBois Clubs.

Who cares what this bunch of race pimps thinks. West is OK. What does the GOP lose, nothing; unless they kowtow to this group of hypocrits.

So, west thinks there are about 80 commies in the dem party. Well on that he is wrong, the number is higher.

I want the NAACP to apologize to Allen West and the Tea Party. We’re insulted by their closed minded approach to freedom of speech.

I want the Black Panthers to apologize for being thugs.

Civilized people do NOT put bounties on the heads of free citizen - Panthers owe us an apology.

I want the black community to apologize for having so many criminals among their ‘offspring’ that rational people will assume a black kid out at night is up to no good.

I want poverty pimps to apologize to Zimmerman’s family for putting this young man through so much grief - just for defending himself against a man who was attempting to murder him by bashing his head against the concrete.

And I want the MSM to apologize for equating ‘checking out a person who doesn’t live in a neighborhood’ with a thug who thinks appropriate ‘payment’ (for possibly being ‘checked out’) is attempted murder by sitting on that person and bashing their head against the concrete.

Waiting, waiting, waiting for excuses, PC revenge, etc....

If the RNC were smart....

They would announce asap that Col. West will be the keynote speaker at the convention in Tampa.

Socialism is ‘Imperative’: Communist Leaders Detail Their Plans for America at Party Conference Over the Weekend

In what constituted a clear step-by-step stratagem, Sam Webb, the party’s chair, opened his remarks by saying that the upcoming election [of Obama and more DemocRATS in Congress] are only be part of “a grander design [that] will connect the dots between our immediate and longer-range political task.”

Did West say that they were members of the Communist Party or merely Communists? One need not be a “card-carrying” Communist to adhere to Communist tenets. I guess the charge hit too close to home for members on the National Association of Liberal Colored People.

Westy hit the mark with his comments, and now we need to fire for effect on the Communist progressives.

NOthing kike klittle liberal fascists whining in the morning!

NAACP is just waxing nationalist socialist, morphing into a fascist organization, in which they will censor Black Politicians who do not agree with their sordid liberal authority.No freedom from the NAACP for “de poh black man Col. Allen West, He an Uncle Tom!”

Freedom is only for black folks who agree with the NAACP politics of nationalist ( rascist) socialism( historic justice we deserve to be paid via redistribution of wealth)= Fascism.

Its Official, welcome NAACP to the Obama fascist fold!
