Surprise: Allen West Once Did Dickish Thing To Black People

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

      He's a Plantation Republican.

    • bauserdotcom

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

    • nicnack74

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

      *says this Blah girl*

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

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

      Ron Paul Blimp dogfight !

      • BoatOfVelociraptors

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

  • coolhandnuke

    Keep fuckin' with that chicken Allen.

  • OzoneTom

    Proving his point that the Congressional Black Caucus is racist!

  • arihaya

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

    That would have added malt to injuries.

    • Beowoof

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

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Rubbing malt into the wound?

  • bumfug

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

    • Callyson

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

  • mrpuma2u

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

  • Extemporanus

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

    • Crank_Tango

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

      • Extemporanus

        But really, who are we to talk?

        • MissTaken

          I do hate when I get shafted on the tips.

          • Extemporanus

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

          • Tequila Mockingbird

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

          • MissTaken

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

          • Tequila Mockingbird

            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

            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

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

          • Extemporanus

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

  • Billmatic

    Well after all, they're the real racists.

  • Pragmatist2

    He threw in some watermelon too, right?

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

      With grape soda?

    • WhatTheHolyHeck

      Where is their m-fing ice tea?

  • Goonemeritus

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

    • Negropolis

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

      • Goonemeritus

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

        • Negropolis

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

          • Goonemeritus

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

          • HistoriCat

            One of these things is not like the others …

  • YouBetcha

    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

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

  • Beowoof

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

  • http://www.wonkette.com ChillBill

    "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

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

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

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

  • decay500

    "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

      But with more sexual harassment.

  • MissTaken

    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

    Look at the dick on that cow!

  • Jus_Wonderin

    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

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

  • Callyson

    “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
      • emmelemm

        Wow, that red codpiece really says it all.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    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

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

    • Jus_Wonderin

      Or…someone was softly sobbing.

  • Mahousu

    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

      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

        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

          You are a good co-worker, JW.

      • James Michael Curley

        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

      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

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

  • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

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

    but maybe that's just me.

    • Not_So_Much

      Or human. Whatever.

    • timbo71351

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

  • EatsBabyDingos

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

  • coolhandnuke

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

  • http://www.wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

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

  • EatsBabyDingos

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

    • chicken_thief

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

    • elviouslyqueer

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

  • http://wonkette.com OldWhiteLies

    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

      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

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

  • PuckStopsHere

    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.

  • Misty Malarky

    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

      nothing beats battery acid ….

  • bikerlaureate

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

    This.

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

  • emmelemm

    Bartles & Jaymes libel!

  • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

    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

      Subtle as a B-52 strike, Chet.

    • mayor_quimby

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

      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.

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

  • hagajim

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

    • http://tonguepunch.insanejournal.com/ Andrew Drinker

      Just gay chickens.

  • Come here a minute

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

  • Wilcoxyz

    Ahh, the soft bigotry of low-fat expectations.

  • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilledmeltdown

    West is actually a member of the black caucus?

    • ph7

      He's a token member.

  • mlle_derp

    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

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

  • chicken_thief

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

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Fraudulently_Joe

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

  • mlle_derp

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

    • timbo71351

      Trolling

    • http://tonguepunch.insanejournal.com/ Andrew Drinker

      The lulz.

  • Guppy

    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

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

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

    Did he sing "Mammy", too?

  • CindynEncinitas

    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

    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

    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

    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

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

  • SolitaireRose

    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.

  • http://tonguepunch.insanejournal.com/ Andrew Drinker

    What's wrong with a tailgate with wine coolers?

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