Attack Ad Shows Rep. Allen West Punching Women, Stealing Money
A new attack ad is throwing political punches … literally. It shows Florida Rep. Allen West punching women and stealing money, and states that he “whacked women” with huge cuts in health care funding.
Congressman West joined Fox & Friends to react to the ad and pointed out what he called a double standard evident in the video, because he is a black conservative shown punching a white woman. If the situation was reversed, West said “there would be national outrage, and that’s part of the duplicitous hypocrisy that comes about with the liberal left. They believe they can do anything, especially if you are a black conservative."
He continued by saying, "Think if the Republican Party or some conservative PAC ran a picture of a black Democrat politician punching white women and white seniors, I’m sure MSNBC, NBC, Huffington Post and everyone would be going apoplectic right now.”
West also points out that we see this coming out of the ad running against Mitt Romney right now, stating that there is lying and cheating going on.
“Where’s the outrage from Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP about this? They’re not going to say anything because they’re nothing but an effective wing of the Democrat Party and they have effectively kept them well-placed so that they can continue to make sure that they have a black electorate voting block.”
