ALLEN WEST: OBAMA ‘ABJECTLY DESPISES’ WHITES

War hero and former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is questioning how long it will take for “you people” – white Americans – to realize that their president “abjectly despises” them.
In a commentary posted Tuesday on his own website, West, who represented Florida in Congress after an extended career in the U.S. military, confronted head on the issue of racism.
Citing Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s warning that schools have to drop policies that “disproportionately punish minorities,” West suggested it’s not racism to punish blacks more when members of that minority cause trouble more.
“I taught high school for one year in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and in the end, it was such an enjoyable experience breaking up fights daily, that I decided to return to the combat zone of Afghanistan,” West wrote. “Teachers are already disrespected and attacked, not feared. There were students at Deerfield Beach who steered clear of the lunchroom for fear of being picked on or engaged in a fight …
“Yes, this violence on campus was perpetrated eight out of 10 times by black students, male and female, but it had nothing to do with racial disparity. It had everything to do with a lack of discipline and control,” he wrote.
He said Obama’s and Holder’s advocacy for leniency for those to cause trouble essentially makes them racist.
“This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before ‘you people’ realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you – not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists – not you,” he wrote.
The commentary was prompted by Holder’s recent demand that schools “rethink ‘zero tolerance’ disciplinary policies” because they “disproportionately punish minorities.”
A Hill report on the issue charged that “alarming numbers of young people are suspended, expelled or even arrested for relatively minor transgressions like school uniform violations, schoolyard fights or showing ‘disrespect’ by laughing in class, Holder said during a speech.”
West noted that the accompanying new federal guidance from the departments of Justice and Education “encouraging (i.e. threatening) schools to adopt disciplinary policies that are ‘fair, nondiscriminatory, and effective’” is simply a threat from the Department of Justice.
