West Responds: Ad Depicting Him Beating White Women ‘Plays on Stereotypes’
Before Americans are able to recover from the shock of Team Obama releasing an ad that accuses Mitt Romney of murder, they will first have to deal with an ad out of Florida that depicts Congressman Allen West as beating the hell out of an elderly white woman -- literally knocking all of her teeth out, before he steals money from a black family:
Breitbart News contacted Allen West's office for comment and just received this from the Congressman himself:
I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans. The ad being run against me by my opponent's family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible. It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation. This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person's character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity.
Congressman West is exactly right that the ad comes from his opponent's family.
The super PAC behind the ad is American Sunrise PAC, which was founded with $250,000 by Thomas Murphy, the father of the Congressman's opponent, Patrick Murphy.
Yeah, no illegal collusion between a super PAC and a candidate going on there.
When you consider the hyper-sensitive racial environment created by Obama's Media Palace Guards, it's not hard to imagine how they might react were this a pro-Romney super PAC ad showing Obama beating an old white woman senseless.
But the very same media that uses the cry of racism to protect Obama from criticism on issues ranging from food stamps to his dismantling of welfare reform, isn't likely to make a very big deal out of a black Congressman being depicted as a woman-beating thief.
After all, the media doesn’t see West as black, they see him as a sell-out apostate.
By the way, the "About Us" section of the America Sunrise's website reads:
We believe in an America that is at the dawn of a new day, in which Congress is ready to refocus on creating family-supporting American jobs, addressing issues of fairness and equality, and reasserting the core progressive values that were the real foundation of our democracy.
You can believe it, too, because there's no question "core progressive values" involve racial stereotypes, violence, and defaming a veteran who fought for his country.
