Lawn Jockey alert! Alan West Attacks Keith Ellison

25 Jan

The Tea Party’s favorite Lawn Jockey is at it again – this time in an attack against Congressman Keith Ellison for being a Muslim…

Folks down in Palm Beach ready for that Recall Election yet?

Keith Ellison’s response to West’s hate fueled diatribe

I was surprised to hear of Congressman West’s comments because he has never expressed these sentiments to me directly.

Contrary to the views expressed by Congressman West, I work to represent the highest ideals of our great nation – ideals like freedom of worship and respect for all faiths, equal protection under the law as well as a civil and open public discourse.

I call on Americans of all colors, cultures and faiths to turn to each other, not on each other, especially in the renewed spirit of finding a more respectful and productive public dialogue.

Americans across the country want their public servants to reject the toxic and corrosive chatter that yields more heat than light. I hope to have a productive and respectful dialogue with all of my colleagues, including Allen West.

Come on down and get you “Lawn Jockey of the Week Award – Alan West!

Lawn Jockey of the Week Award to Alan West - For his ad hominum racist attack on Congressman Keith Ellison's religion and Patriotism

    Thank you for introducing me to Keith Ellison. His words ring true and inspired me. I just hope he really means what he says and is not just another lying politician

      Ellison has been fairly low key, and completely professional in his time in Congress, Tim. I believe that unlike West, Ellison is out to do the best job he can for his constituents. That isn’t a matter of party affiliation, as the best of the elected members of both parties do that – it is a matter of personal integrity and professionalism.

      West has none of that.

    Someone should pull West’s coat and remind him a free black man sitting in the House of Representatives was “the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established.”

    …to which he might reply, “how dare you call me a black man.” ;o)

      West is a certifiable head case. Ellison did handle it with class – especially the part about “You’ve never said any of this to my face”.

      Suggests he feels West has a “bully” personality.

      Brother Brown:

      Think about it.
      Today when the various “Social Justice” struggles are executed upon – the primary documents that they use to guide their way is the VERY DOCUMENT that you speak of.

      Whereas I notice Al Sharpton ad others reference Dr King from which they receive their “moral authority” to claim that others are exploiting his name – please allow me to introduce you to the words of the great Frederick Douglass – his views as having evolved in 1860:

      Frederick Douglass – The US Constitution Is An ANTI-SLAVERY Document:

      Did Douglass “sell out” as his views evolved?

        The Constitution as amended, by the 13th and 14th Amendments.

        These amendments to the Constitution did not come till AFTER the Civil War.

        Douglass said his words in 1860.

        The fact that this “flawed, racist” document was able to retain its form but be AMENDED to codify the ENTIRE nation’s revulsion of Slavery proved Douglass correct.

        Sure it took 100 more years for the White racists that were ensconced in the Democratic Party to set us free – but that’s just the way it goes.

        By the way – when you saw the MLK day march in South Carolina did you notice that RACIST Ben “Pitchfork” Tillman has a statue dedicated to him on the capital grounds by the Democratic Party? Instead of worrying about the flag they should have brought a chisel and changed the wording to “Republican”. It would have made them feel better.

        Kinda misses the point that if the Constitution ended slavery…

        Then they wouldn’t have had to add those Amendments.

        As to “the ENTIRE nation’s revulsion of Slavery proved Douglass correct.”

        And you might want to actually pick up a History book and try reading it While the 13th Amendment was ratified on Dec 6, 1865…

        Mississippi didn’t ratify it until 1995. Kentucky didn’t ratify it until 1976.

        You might also want to note when the confederate states were actually readmitted to the Union, and the requirement by Jackson that they pass the 13th prior to being readmitted.

        Since you can’t read – watch this –

        Do try and not be ignorant all your life, Porch.

    In a very basic way, the constitution is a flawed document, fraught with error in judgment and moral and ethical failings. Moreover, its legacy is an overly bloated layer upon of new dubious laws, codes, regulations, multiplied by 50 states, multiplied by however many counties are in each state, multiplied by however many cities are in each county.

    It, in effect, create three industries, the legal industry, the gun industry and the news media. The legal industry adds more hidden costs to our everyday lives than most people realize, while adding almost no economic value. In fact, it is a net drain on the economy. I’d rather pay taxes than legal expenses.

    The “press” still exists but it’s harder for news organizations to provide economic value, especially as their revenue model proved to be a house of cards and damaged the natural resource of the earth to boot. Did you know several American newspapers now outsource their graphic artwork to India, paying $1.15 an hour? Talk about local news!!!

    But the gravest mistake was the establishment of the gun industry. Human devolution has proven man shouldn’t have access to such a weapon of mass destruction.

    Those are three terrible errors of the constitution that don’t even consider the inherent racism, sexism and xenophobia of the document.

    The fact that brother killed brother, and there are mass graves still out there, proves more than a f_kin piece of paper. Always keep these dumb dumb focus on the other side of poltical compromises – war

    The comments regarding Alan West, including the “lawn jockey” is a prime example of you sell-out, hypocrites who lack the brain matter to come up with an intelligent argument against him. This site is pure trash! Bet you won’t post this
