Two days after Halloween, the state of Florida became a tomb of horrors for Democrats, unleashing the twin nightmares of Marco Rubio in the Senate, and Allen West in the House. West is black, although when Democrats look at him through the lens of their ideology, they see Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. He has therefore announced his intention to join the Congressional Black Caucus.
“I plan on joining, I’m not gonna ask for permission or whatever, I’m gonna find out when they meet and I will be a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and I think I meet all of the criteria and it’s so important that we break down this ‘monolithic voice’ that continues to talk about victimization and dependency in the black community,” West said in a radio interview.
This will have two effects on the Congressional Black Caucus. First, it will make them think twice about announcing when they meet. Second, it will compromise the CBC’s ability to throw the weight of racial politics behind the Democrat agenda. Congressman West is polite, but firm, and does not suffer fools lightly. As The Hill points out, he is particularly impatient with nonsense like the Obama Administration’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation. This is not a topic the CBC wants to discuss.
The elections of Allen West and Tim Scott (R-SC), who might also join the Caucus, spell the end of the Left’s attempt to portray the Tea Party movement as racists. It wasn’t working anyway, but now it would prompt laughter from even the most casual voter. If West gets into those Congressional Black Caucus meetings, they’ll end up watching in numb horror while he tears the Race Card to shreds before their eyes.
