Allen West Obliterates ‘Woke Mob’ During Fox & Friends Appearance

His assessment of the asinine belligerence was brutal.

There is no denying that the radical left side of American politics is going for woke, and that they are forever existing in a space where jumping the shark is a constant concern.   It’s the Buzzfeed Effect, in essence, and the -tainment portion of infotainment takes center stage.

And in this virtue-signaling morass of over-moral buffoonery we lose some part of the First Amendment.  The act of policing wrong-think and wrong-speak begins to suggest to the nation that amending the vocabulary is a constant process.  That every week a new word is verboten.  While, yes, there are some time in which our verbal ecosystem needs to be trimmed back, at least in civil circles, there is danger in allowing the proverbial weed killer to spread unabated.

As the woke mob continues to raze the societal property of pop culture, there are those who stand to speak the truth, like a stone that breaks the river’s stream amid the cries of the falsely-enlightened.

Allen West is one of them, and his recent appearance on Fox & Friends provided us with some much-needed clarity on the subject of wokeism as a whole.

During his appearance, West said his background as someone born in a blacks-only hospital and raised in the same Atlanta community that produced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. warrants his opinion on race and American exceptionalism and that the students involved in the campus protests just “want to be victims.”

LT. COL. ALLEN WEST: I’m part of the speaker group with the Young America’s Foundation, and I’m going to talk to these conservative students on these campuses about these many different topics, and this topic was about race and American exceptionalism. And prior to me even getting there, the posters that were announced in my coming were being ripped out, and I was on ‘Fox & Friends’ early on Wednesday to talk about that, but, you know, I’ve been in combat and of course, I was not concerned, but I was concerned about the safety of the students that are there at the University of Buffalo. But the fact is this: Y’all just had a segment talking about free speech. You know, as I explained to those students, I was born 61 years ago in a black-only in hospital. And I grew up in the same inner-city Atlanta neighborhood that produced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

And then…

“My elementary school was right across the street from Ebenezer Baptist Church. So if you want to talk about race and American exceptionalism, why shouldn’t a black man that was born 61 years ago in a blacks-only hospital, that rose through the ranks to become a lieutenant colonel when his dad was a corporal in the segregated Army, became a member of the United States House of Representatives. But these kids want to be victims. They don’t want to hear that. They’re very militant, they’re very radical, and I’m glad that we exposed them.”

Allen is a former Congressman from Florida who is currently in the running to unseat Greg Abbott as the Governor of Texas.

Empire State Goes Tyrannical with Social Media Spying Plan

This is NOT okay.

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which American politicians can react to a tragedy, with a great many of those options being a bit shortsighted.

This is especially true of Democrats, it seems, as their innate progressivism makes them uniquely obsessed with change for the sake of change – even when those changes may be constitutionally questionable.

The latest example of this comes to us from New York, where a racist massacre at a grocery store has the state government looking to spy on citizens’ social media accounts.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) on Wednesday announced plans to create a police unit designed to, in part, combat “hate speech” in the wake of the tragic shooting in Buffalo, promising to “confront this epidemic head-on.”

“We’re proposing a comprehensive plan to combat domestic terrorism, strengthen state gun laws, & investigate social media platforms promoting violent extremism,” Hochul announced Wednesday.

“In wake of the racist act of terror in Buffalo, New York will lead the charge to confront this epidemic head-on”.

The devil was in the (lack of) details:

One of the governor’s executive orders instructs the State Police to establish a “dedicated unit within the New York State Intelligence Center (NYSIC) to track domestic extremism and increase social media monitoring at the Intelligence Center.”

“The unit will be responsible for developing investigative leads based on social media analyses focused on radical extremist activities motivated threats by identifying online locations and activities that facilitate radicalization and promote violent extremism,” it reads in part.

Without any clear or concise guard rails, those employed within the unit would be left to examine any number of questionable pieces of alleged “evidence”, tagging and cataloging completely harmless users in the sort of overreach that would have George Orwell not only rolling over in his grave, but kicking at the lid of his coffin as well.
