Allen West Warns: Target Me – Beware. West: Open Season on Black Conservatives?

Congressman Allen West’s (R-FL) Florida office received an envelope containing a white powder and a letter using ugly rhetoric. After testing, the powder was judged to be not dangerous or harmful.

The Hill has the entire story:

“This incident, is just another in several incidents that have occurred over the last couple of years and, have put me in quite a bad mood,” West wrote in an email sent to constituents Tuesday.

He offered the example of a “liberal blogger publicly stating that he wanted to ‘skin me alive,’ ” and a protest outside his office led by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) “castigating me as a ‘misogynist.’ ”

“I find it interesting that in all of these instances, the media simply dismissed the incidents,” West said. “One might wonder — is it open season on a principled black conservative?”

“Let me be very clear to all reading this missive, but mostly to liberals who subscribe to this behavior, be careful of whom you are choosing to employ these tactics against,” wrote West. “I consider myself an easy-going fella who will always engage in intense intellectual exchange. However, if you choose this path of personal attacks, intimidation, and threats you will encounter a very different Congressman (LTC. Ret) Allen B. West.”

God Bless Allen West. Black Conservatives have an extra cross to bear.


  • Well, it’s open seasons on ALL principled conservatives

    But I really do pity the fools who try to intimidate you, sir- they don’t know you very well, do they lol

  • I so very much wish he’d run for POTUS! America desperately needs a strong leader like Allen West!

    If what’s happening to West had happened to a liberal Black congressman, the news media, NAACP, and the justice brothers, Jackson and Sharpton would be all over it. The Tea Party would be blamed and drug through the mud by the MSM and condemned on the floor of congress. But, since West is a Conservative, not a peep from the media or others. Remember the racial slurs liberal radio hosts said about Condi and, again, not a peep out of them.

    Heh! Dad taught me that the paint on a car made no difference. What counted was all under the hood.

    If West ever seeks higher office, he’ll have my active campaign support.

    Thanks Maggie!

  • Isn’t it sad, that the ones who shout the loudest about racism, are the racists? Disgusting behavior. If anyone had suggested that Obama be skinned.. Oh the outcry.. leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.. Mr. West would be a powerful threat to Obama. Go “West” young man go west..

  • And not a word about these threats on West on the mainstream media!

    Who are the racists now?

  • We know who the real racists are.
    I am disgusted by the vileness of the attacks against Cong. West.
    I would vote for the man in a nanosecond.
