Let me give you a final comparison. Back in the day it was Democrats who stood outside the doors of higher education obstructing black children from attaining a better education and opportunity. Today, those same Democrats stand inside the doors of failing schools, trapping black children and obstructing them from seeking better education and opportunity. Same party, just reverse positions, and I wish I could spend one hour speaking with Mr. Aaron to enlighten him on these points.

As always West nails it..

This is an absolutely fantastic article by Allen West.

Aaron's ignorance and incendiary rhetoric is so destructive that it's frightening.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I'm not as kind as Allen West. I watched that famous game on television, and was so happy and excited for Hank. I always admired him, not just because he was such a great baseball hero, but he appeared to be a humble, good man. I don't think that way, anymore. It's like being disappointed in a best friend, when you find out he or she was using all along. Sad...

I wouldn't be surprised at all if he was financially compensated for saying such an inflammatory thing.

And which of these two men will be noticed by the media. Which message will be parroted to the American dumb masses?

His comment about trading hoods for suits and ties is not original.

Charlie Rangel?  Sharpton?  Someone else may have paid him and told him what to say.

Obviously rhetorical questions.....
