Allen West 'offends' with Chick-fil-A lunch
WND ^ | 8/7/2012

Posted on 08/07/2012 4:52:10 PM PDT by antidemoncrat

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.

A brave man, with a well-timed punch.

The CBC will learn nothing from this.

They need to be asked to explain exactly what was offensive. That the owner is Christian?

Wait just a second. Evidently the rest of the CBC was enraged by this, but a bigger question remains............

Did they still eat the food?

If I was Allen I would get some more Chick-fil-A, feed it to the staff, take a picture of the aftermath of wrappers, bags, and containers, and release the photo saying the CBC ate the food.

If the rest of the caucus don’t like his offering, they can just sweep it into the waste basket and go hungry.

And dining on Chick-fil-A seems pretty formal for this bunch.

Since it is already out there that he left after delivering the food it probably wouldn’t work.

Plus putting out a false press release like that would get him in some trouble with the ethics committee.

Good for him! The Congressional Black Caucus ranks right up there with some of most racist organizations in the country.

Chicken and biscuits, done right, could never be offensive!

But then, they look for ways to be offended, so...

This organization just gives these people the right to get together and talk about how much they hate whitey, and how much they think we owe them.

The CBC should be disbanded. It’s time these folks learn what the word “integration” means.

Good for Col. West. If he ran for president he would have my vote in a heartbeat.

Last week, on Howie Carr's radio show, a black guy called West “a buffoon” and “99% of blacks think you are a joke.” West, thinking the caller was white (the caller has phoned into other talk shows in the area and is basically a one-trick pony), blasted this person as a “typical white progressive...” West is superb.

Sounds rather opportunistic for the Dims....

Cathy hadn’t said his hated words back then, and CFA’s only “crime” at the time was Christianity.

Sounds like it was indeed his turn, and he brought the CFA chicken and everyone chowed down and no one complained, and someone suddenly remembered, “Hey, didn’t AW buy and bring CFA way back when?”

Just like lying on the floor of the Senate about an opposing party's presidential candidate not paying his taxes for a decade.

From reports, U of A was scrubbing him off their website.

Of course, they might try to have him back to lecture on “The Economics of Liberal Drive-Thru Hate”.

You have to “love” (sarcasm) the way the media sets up articles like this. If you miss the fine details you think this happened recently after the protests against Mr. Cathy’s support of the millenniums old tradition of marriage aka a sacred legal contract between a man and a woman. NO, this happened SIX 6 months ago. And it makes no sense he delivered the meal and walked out. Why would he have walked out? SIX (6) months ago as far as I know there was no controversy regarding Chick-fil-a. This article was a bunch of bologna meant to stir up controversy and I question it’s validity. Unless I hear it from Allen West, I say its most likely more msm bunkum.

Last week, my boss bought Chick-fil-A for the entire staff. Our two resident Left-wingers got all indignant, talking about how “offended” they were.
My question was “then why the hell are you working for a man who shares the same opinions as Dan Cathy?”
