“A Democratic lawmaker says Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) ‘deliberately’ offended members of the Congressional Black Caucus by having chicken and biscuits from Chick-fil-A catered to their weekly meeting, the Huffington Post reports.
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) said West even went a step further and walked out of the meeting even though it was his turn to provide the group with a formal lunch. He told the Huffington Post that the incident took place roughly 6 months ago but he apparently feels they are relevant given the recent controversy surrounding restaurant President Dan Cathy’s decision to publicly back traditional marriage.
West recently voiced his support of Chick-fil-A.
‘We have a rotation in the Congressional Black Caucus where every member provides the lunch one of the weeks when we meet,’ Hastings told HuffPo on Monday.
‘We have fried chicken. And we have catfish and BBQ. We do not have watermelon, although sometimes people will have fruit. We serve a full course meal with collard greens. We have Jamaican beans and rice,’ Hastings said. ‘But West ‘sent Chick-fil-A with biscuits. Ok?’
‘That was an ‘in your face.’ Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended,’ he added….”
What is the difference between Congressman Allen West and the other members of the Congressional Black Caucus?
Glad you asked. For starters, Congressman West is a man of honor. The other members of the CBC lack that particular attribute.
West is not a Communist or a traitor. Said attributes are shared by all other members of the CBC.
West is a leader, the others are not. They are puppets trained to go along with the program whether they approve. They dance when they are ordered to dance and jumped when ordered to jump but prior to doing so, ask how high.
The Congressional Black Caucus are a bunch of buffoons, something else that Congressman West does not have in common with these Marxists.
I can go on but you get the message.
Jerk chicken is fine but not chicken and biscuits. How anti-American. Chicken and biscuits is an American staple and Chick-fil-A is a popular American business so what is the problem?
Who but a Democrat, in particular, the CBC would see chicken and biscuits and immediately throw out the race card?
Besides, this incident took place six months ago and these elitist, bourgeois n*** overseers have the audacity to be offended NOW. Bull!
So what did they want West to serve them? Oysters with foie béarnaise; a foie terrine with Thai flavors; seared foie with caramelized lambs tongue, porcini, asparagus, sherry; a ballantine of squab with foie powder; and foie ice cream with a fried rhubarb pie?
I am getting the feeling here that Progressives had a problem with Chick-fil-A long before homosexuals got their panties in a bunch? After all, it is no secret that when Progressives declare war on a business, it is about getting fleecing the corporation’s treasury.
As for Allen West, way to go patriot.
