Dave Agema, the raging bigot from Michigan on the Republican National Committee, says that it’s not his fault he posted an article from a white supremacist magazine and called it “very enlightening.” It’s totally the fault of the black guy — Allen West, unsurprisingly — who cited it first. Oh, and that means he can’t possibly be a racist.
Once again I find the same people making false statements concerning a repost of an article I got from Col West’s ( former congressman) news letter as my words and opinion. I make no accusation that I agree with the statements supporting the author he posted. I do support Col West’s commentary concerning the authors article and not the content of the article itself. I respect the former congressman and fellow military officer highly and regard his opinions since he grew up in the inner city as a black man who has personal experience. I think his observations are noteworthy and he is certainly not a racist nor am I for reposting his opinions.
In his news letter he makes it clear it is quite possibly the most racist article you will read. He states it is a disturbing piece that we need to comprehend. He also states some of the observations in this area are NOT shocking to him but are quite well known and that we should be having a real discussion, not one of victimhood and expansion of the welfare nanny state. He states we are not hearing about the real issues from Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and others. I suspect he posted this as a result of the recent riots in Ferguson and other cities.
Perception becomes reality in politics and when liberal writers write something often enough it becomes truth in the listeners ears. It’s sad that politically correctness has so taken over our society and is determined by those who desire to move our culture according to their agenda. Political correctness is dangerous and prevents freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech from men of courage like Col West, we will lose our freedom and our culture. To take a sentence out of an article that Col West calls a racist article and use it to call myself and Col West a racist is ridiculous and deceptive reporting.
To quote Col West from his news letter-” I’m quite sure the progressive socialist left will criticize me for sharing this article-that’s just who they are- they hate the truth . But if there is a war to be fought, it is for the soul of the inner city and the black community.”
But Agema never mentioned Allen West when he posted a link to the article. Here’s his Facebook post, which has since been removed. Hey Dave, if there’s nothing wrong with it, why did you remove it? Are you caving in to those liberals you hate so much?
He linked to it and called it “very enlightening” — an article that says this:
“However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.”
And when Allen West linked to it, he called it “quite possibly the most racist article you’ll ever read.” Agema offered nothing but praise for it. Sorry, Dave, you can’t get out of this by blaming it on a black guy.
