This is an absolutely disgusting racial attack on Rep. Allen West. The video is at that link – here’s the description:
Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) went on MSNBC’s “dog whistle” expert Martin Bashir’s show and unleashed an assault on freshman Rep. Allen West (R-FL) that focused exclusively on the unrelated subject of Congressman West’s African American heritage. Not only does he refer to the black congressman in terms of the African animal, the hyena, he ties the animal to its depiction in the “Lion King”. Both the movie and the play portrayed the hyenas as “jive-talking” (NPR) “gangstas” (Newsweek). If that wasn’t enough – yet unnoticed by Bashir who tried to falsely connect Andrew Breitbart to racism in an interview last year – Moran doubled and tripled down on his racist tirade – even challenging the black congressman’s black authenticity.
Will the Caucasian representative be held to the same standard of racial insensitivity by MSNBC’s team of racial hysterics led by Rev. Al Sharpton, Toure and a whole host of other progressive liberals who seek to stifle dissent by reflexively discovering racism in all political disagreement coming from the right?
I won’t hold my breath waiting for the Revs. Al and Jesse to come to West’s defense. Sickening. Absolutely sickening. Same same for MSNBC. Not surprised by any of this, but that doesn’t make it any easier to stomach.
