Surprise: Allen West Once Did Dickish Thing To Black People

by Jesse Taylor

ridin' dirtyBut which jerkwad thing did Allen West do to black people, you might ask?

He delivered Chick-fil-A to a Congressional Black Caucus meeting. They were not appreciative.

A Democratic lawmaker says Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) offended the entire Congressional Black Caucus by delivering Chick-fil-A chicken and biscuits to their weekly meeting — and then walking out — when it was his turn to provide the group with a formal lunch.

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told The Huffington Post that the incident happened about six months ago but is now fresh in his mind given West’s recent comments in support of the fast food chain, which is run by a well-known Christian and backer of anti-gay religious organizations.

[...]

“That was an ‘in your face.’ Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended,” he said.

Asked more specifically why lawmakers were insulted, Hastings said it was because they saw West’s actions as making a statement in support of the conservative views held by Chick-fil-A leaders. West is the only Republican member of the caucus.

“He did it deliberately,” Hastings said, explaining that he saw West’s message as, “You know, ‘That’s what I think of you all.’”

It’s actually more offensive that he dropped off fast food. That’s like having a tailgate with wine coolers.

Allen West does realize he's a blah?

Billmatic August 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm

He's a Plantation Republican.

bauserdotcom August 7, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Of course not. He's a Republican. They "don't see color," remember?

nicnack74 August 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Allen West is the worst kind of Blah. He hates his own people.

*says this Blah girl*

Biel_ze_Bubba August 8, 2012 at 12:30 am

It's the downside of having no reflection. That, and ridiculous-looking hair.

Barb_ August 7, 2012 at 3:28 pm

SarahPAC bought her a zeppelin?

Nostrildamus August 7, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Ron Paul Blimp dogfight !

BoatOfVelociraptors August 7, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Man, blimp jousting would be entertaining in the same way that baseball is. Slow, dragged out, and full of gasbags.

coolhandnuke August 7, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Keep fuckin' with that chicken Allen.

OzoneTom August 7, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Proving his point that the Congressional Black Caucus is racist!

arihaya August 7, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Hey Allen West, why don't you gave 'em 40-oz too?

That would have added malt to injuries.

Beowoof August 7, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Don't forget some fatties, as they will give you the munchies so you will be interested in the chicken.

Biel_ze_Bubba August 8, 2012 at 12:30 am

Rubbing malt into the wound?

bumfug August 7, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Wake me up when you find something Allen West did that WASN'T dickish.

Callyson August 7, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Now, now, you're too young to sleep forever.

mrpuma2u August 7, 2012 at 3:30 pm

He dropped it off and then said "this chicken is da bomb!" Jeezus is lard.

Extemporanus August 7, 2012 at 3:31 pm

So, I take it that he got stiffed on the tip?

Crank_Tango August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Of course he did, because as we all know…hey! I see what you did there.

Extemporanus August 7, 2012 at 3:46 pm

But really, who are we to talk?

MissTaken August 7, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I do hate when I get shafted on the tips.

Extemporanus August 7, 2012 at 4:04 pm

That's one of the downsides to working the All-You-Eat Sunday Brunch Buffet shift at The Gold Club, sister.

Billmatic August 7, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Well after all, they're the real racists.

Pragmatist2 August 7, 2012 at 3:33 pm

He threw in some watermelon too, right?

Monsieur_Grumpe August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

With grape soda?

WhatTheHolyHeck August 7, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Where is their m-fing ice tea?

Goonemeritus August 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm

As an almost white guy I find this uncomfortable to snark to.

Negropolis August 8, 2012 at 2:39 am

What's an "almost white guy"? A Jew? A light-skinned Indian? A blue-eyed Arab? A…a…Russian?

Goonemeritus August 8, 2012 at 4:31 am

Italian Catholic, I take comfort in the fact that the KKK hates me even though I have no rhythm.

Negropolis August 8, 2012 at 7:26 am

Italian Catholic? Is there any other type of Italian? lol

Goonemeritus August 8, 2012 at 8:18 am

Well yes but you have Roman Catholic, Latin Rite Catholic, Eastern Rite Catholic, Romanian-Catholics, Ukrainian Greek Catholics, Armenian Catholics and Jehovah's Witnesses.

YouBetcha August 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I have a particular fondness for the dark meat, shall we say, but Allen West just does not do it for me. I would not hit that.

rmjagg August 7, 2012 at 4:22 pm

" I would not hit that." …. except in the face … with a chair

Beowoof August 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Oh Allen, you' re not white and even with Michael Jackson style alterations they will still hate you for being black.

ChillBill August 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm

"Democratic lawmaker says Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) offended the entire Congressional Black Caucus by delivering Chick-fil-A chicken and biscuits to their weekly meeting — and then walking out…"

…back to his cabin?

mavenmaven August 7, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Allen West thought fried chicken would go over well for the black caucus? What, no watermelon? Such a friggin' creep.

SayItWithWookies August 7, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Has Bryan Fischer said this proves Allen West is white yet?

decay500 August 7, 2012 at 3:36 pm

"only Republican member of the caucus.."

And when he walked out, a gauntlet of hi 5's from his snickering buddies waiting in the hall.. Boner, Ryan, et al.. I was down in D.C. testifying and as I walked the halls of the congressional office building it felt exactly like high school between classes.

NorthStarSpanx August 8, 2012 at 11:00 am

But with more sexual harassment.

MissTaken August 7, 2012 at 3:37 pm

I'm impressed he didn't bring them watermelon for dessert. Then again, watermelon probably wasn't in season at that time and he didn't want to pay for the stuff from Chile.

KeepFnThatChicken August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Look at the dick on that cow!

Jus_Wonderin August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I am confused. I am a liberal but I can't understand why I continually try to tamp down Chick-fil-A's/Dan Cathay's freedom of speech. Am I just an ungodly beast?

JustPixelz August 7, 2012 at 3:54 pm

LIberals like the First Amendment; conservatives the Second Amendment. That's pretty much your dilemma.

Callyson August 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

“That was an ‘in your face.’ Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended,” he said.

Alcee Hastings was too polite to add "But the silver lining is that he walked the fuck out afterwards, so we did not have to deal with his sorry ass."

Extemporanus August 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm
emmelemm August 7, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Wow, that red codpiece really says it all.

Tequila Mockingbird August 7, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I still can't believe people are using a fast-food restaurant chain as a proxy for the issue of gay marriage. I guess it’s for people who feel so strongly about the issue but not enough to make the slightest personal sacrifice for it, like give up a greasy fried chicken sandwich. Fuck these people.

Tequila Mockingbird August 7, 2012 at 3:40 pm

This story's only sexy if everyone smoked a Black & Mild aftewards.

Jus_Wonderin August 7, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Or…someone was softly sobbing.

Mahousu August 7, 2012 at 3:41 pm

We had a guy like this in our group. When we had a potluck Christmas party, everyone else brought in nice homemade treats. He dropped off a bucket of KFC.

A half-eaten bucket of KFC.

MissTaken August 7, 2012 at 3:47 pm

At my old job we had a girl bring in a frozen box of Totino's Pizza Rolls to a potluck. She just dumped the entire box on the table and let it melt in-between a 7-layer dip and cheesecake.

Jus_Wonderin August 7, 2012 at 3:56 pm

JW pats self on back: Nearer to T'day I bring in two huge slow cookers of stew, sides of coleslaw and cornbread.

It is my tradition and gift to the company. They seem to enjoy it and noone has been poisoned….yet

mlle_derp August 7, 2012 at 4:05 pm

You are a good co-worker, JW.

James Michael Curley August 7, 2012 at 3:59 pm

When I go to potluck dinners I bring a bunch of those travel size Pepto Bismol. People send me thank you cards for weeks.

kittensdontlie August 7, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Equating West to this guy might be a bit harsh, after all he was saving some of you from certain death by fried chicken.

Billmatic August 7, 2012 at 4:00 pm

This sounds like the kind of thing i do for pot lucks, because I resent them and think they suck.

fuflans August 7, 2012 at 3:41 pm

i'm beginning to think allen west is not a very good congressman.

but maybe that's just me.

Not_So_Much August 7, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Or human. Whatever.

timbo71351 August 7, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I'm beginning to think Allen West is not a very good human being.

EatsBabyDingos August 7, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Allen West was then asked to never produce The Wall for Pink Floyd again.

coolhandnuke August 7, 2012 at 3:41 pm

West would have included watermelons in his impromptu delivery, but that would have pushed his fiscal conservative free lunch budget into the black.

ManchuCandidate August 7, 2012 at 3:42 pm

It's no shock that West's autobiography is called "White Like Me: The Allen West Story."

EatsBabyDingos August 7, 2012 at 3:43 pm

He then unwrapped two patties, shoved them together, and called them Chick on Chick fil A's, noting the supple breast meat.

chicken_thief August 7, 2012 at 4:01 pm

You're starting to make that poison sound good. I still prolly won't eat it, but I would watch it for awhile.

elviouslyqueer August 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm

No no. You're confusing West with Hermann Cain. Or Clarence Thomas. Mind you, easy mistake.

OldWhiteLies August 7, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Honestly, with this guy's record of hits, this seems to me one of the least dickish things he's done. I think the Caucus should consider themselves fortunate that he saw fit to immediately walk back out without any additional comments.

Negropolis August 8, 2012 at 2:43 am

Trust me, he may play stupid on TV, but he knows who to fuck with and how to fuck with them. He's smart enough to high-tailed his ass on out of the room. They'd have knocked his ass back to the 1980's, you know, the decade his haircut is from.

Estproph August 7, 2012 at 3:43 pm

And he followed it up with a pack of menthols, cuz you know they loves they menthols…

PuckStopsHere August 7, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Allen West should go back to using Chic-Fil-A as it is meant to be used: A place for him to take Sarah Palin on dates.

NorthStarSpanx August 8, 2012 at 11:01 am

And here all along we thought it was the cow's that were the bad spellers.

Misty Malarky August 7, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Jesus-Lickin' Christ!

Is every goddam thing event in this goddam country now and forever gonna be linked to goddam Chick-Fil-A?

Screw West in his big fat ass – with Polynesian Sauce.

rmjagg August 7, 2012 at 4:25 pm

nothing beats battery acid ….

bikerlaureate August 7, 2012 at 3:46 pm

It’s actually more offensive that he dropped off fast food.

This.

Bipartisan reaching-across-the-aisle should never include anusburgers either.

emmelemm August 7, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Bartles & Jaymes libel!

Chet Kincaid_ August 7, 2012 at 3:48 pm

West also invited field recording specialists from the Smithsonian to the meeting, to "record Democrat Plantation field hollers."

EDIT: I take it back, he is too stupid to come up with a good piece of trolling like that.

BaldarTFlagass August 7, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Subtle as a B-52 strike, Chet.

mayor_quimby August 7, 2012 at 4:17 pm

That, sir, would be some high-level trolling.

Chet Kincaid_ August 7, 2012 at 4:24 pm

John Hammond and Alan Lomax approve this message!

widestanceromance August 7, 2012 at 3:48 pm

I'd have tossed him out for forgetting the Colt 45 and the loose white wimmenz.

This guy again, again.

DemmeFatale August 7, 2012 at 3:48 pm

That reminds me: it's always Clayton Bigsby time!

Fraudulently_Joe August 7, 2012 at 5:48 pm

I'm actually surprised nobody posted this one yet.

Not_So_Much August 7, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Did a shoot a gun next to anybody's head? If not, then I think we can all agree he's making real progress.

elburritodeluxe August 7, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Popeye's was closed.

ph7 August 7, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Kanye West says Allen West doesn't care about black people.

Billmatic August 7, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I'm really happy for u and i'mma let u finish but Allen West is the Worst Congressman of all time. OF ALL TIME.

BarackMyWorld August 7, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Everybody knows black people prefer Popeye's.

(Or so I've heard.)

Chet Kincaid_ August 7, 2012 at 4:17 pm

I learn so many things about what I do and like on this board!

hagajim August 7, 2012 at 3:54 pm

So the subtle subtext to this story is that Allen West hates Chicken?

Andrew Drinker August 8, 2012 at 8:57 am

Just gay chickens.

Come here a minute August 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm

And yet when he goes out to eat, Allen West screams at the server, "Motherfucker, I want more iced tea!"

Wilcoxyz August 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Ahh, the soft bigotry of low-fat expectations.

smokefilledmeltdown August 7, 2012 at 4:01 pm

West is actually a member of the black caucus?

ph7 August 7, 2012 at 4:06 pm

He's a token member.

mlle_derp August 7, 2012 at 4:01 pm

The other Republicans told him that he's 'one of them'. How could he still be a blah? Republicanism doesn't just work as brain bleach, y'know.

Typodong3 August 7, 2012 at 4:02 pm

I think the only point to be made of this is that hes cheap.

chicken_thief August 7, 2012 at 4:04 pm

WTF you need biscuits for if there wasn't any 'tater salad and baked beans? I'd have been pissed to.

Fraudulently_Joe August 7, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Allen West is a fascist, and hates black people. This pretty much proves he's a liberal, right?

mlle_derp August 7, 2012 at 4:10 pm

The question I am left with is: "Why did Allen West ever even join the Black Caucus?"

timbo71351 August 7, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Trolling

Andrew Drinker August 8, 2012 at 9:00 am

The lulz.

Guppy August 7, 2012 at 4:13 pm

A bunch of fast food for a "formal lunch?" Meh, it's just a bunch of blahs, it's not like they'd know the difference.

labman57 August 7, 2012 at 4:17 pm

The Congressional Black Caucus should send West a dozen custom-made rainbow oreos — a little sugar might help his extremely bitter, catty disposition.

Chet Kincaid_ August 7, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I like the way you think!

mlle_derp August 7, 2012 at 4:29 pm

And a pocket mirror!

BTWBFDIMHO August 7, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Meanwhile, in Houston you can order the Chick-on-Chick Filet from the Beaver's restaurant. http://blogs.houstonpress.com/eating/2012/08/neve

Fraudulently_Joe August 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Heh heh, "Beaver's"

Pithaughn August 7, 2012 at 4:29 pm

So, safe to say there is not an Oreo caucus?

DahBoner August 7, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Did he sing "Mammy", too?

CindynEncinitas August 7, 2012 at 4:39 pm

He woulda hung around and knocked back a couple 40s with them but he had to go help OJ look for the real killers.

sullivanst August 7, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Sure he does, he knows it well enough to use it as a stick over the head with which to beat anyone who attempts to call him out for the disgusting bile that perpetually spews from his mouth.

rickmaci August 7, 2012 at 6:54 pm

It is funny in the sense that a former Army Lt. Colonel and a member of the House of Representatives would be so lacking in personal integrity or courage of conviction, that he would stoop to a stupid, sophomoric, chicken shit ambush stunt and then run and hide. Then again, he is a Republigoon so maybe it is to be expected.

ttommyunger August 7, 2012 at 7:30 pm

No doubt it would have been liberally seasoned with West's special secret sauce, if he could just get it up, which you know he can't, because-Wingtard Impotence.

Negropolis August 8, 2012 at 2:46 am

Et moi? I prefer Popeye's. It's the Cadillac of prepared, fast-food fowl.

SolitaireRose August 8, 2012 at 8:22 am

The worst part is, he told the other Congressmen "I got y'all some Yard Bird for yo meetin" and asked why they weren't tap dancing. He then went on Fox Republican News Channel and said they were all the REAL racists in order to win the sweet, sweet love of Ann Coulter.

Andrew Drinker August 8, 2012 at 8:56 am

What's wrong with a tailgate with wine coolers?

Also: I hope Rep. West is enjoying is sole term in Congress.

Tequila Mockingbird August 7, 2012 at 4:21 pm

True story: I got a flat tire right outside the Gold Club on Saturday night.

MissTaken August 7, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Please tell me you were at Thirsty Bear and not the Chevy's.

Extemporanus August 7, 2012 at 4:29 pm

If I had a damp dollar for every time that I got a "flat tire" right outside the Gold Club…

Tequila Mockingbird August 7, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Actually, I was at John Colins. The Gold Club bouncers were really sweet and helped me change my spare. [insert "jack" joke of your choice here.]

Chevy's? Pfft. What am I, a tourist from Iowa? A grad student? My own grandpa?

MissTaken August 7, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Haha! You can always tell the people who are going to the Chevy's because they have a convention id on with their name in Comic Sans 20 pt font and they don't know how to fucking walk down a crowded sidewalk when I need to hurry back to work from the Gold Club lunch buffet.

SorosBot August 7, 2012 at 5:01 pm

OK, hopefully it won't take me too long after I've moved out there to understand these SF references.

HistoriCat August 8, 2012 at 12:21 pm

One of these things is not like the others …
