Allen West: Obama Does Not Share The Racial "Experience" Of Other Black Men

FMR. REP. ALLEN WEST (R-FL): You know, the president came out and started talking about civility in our dialogue. Where is President Obama? You know, here we have the guy that is supposedly the first African American president and we’re supposed to be celebrating this end of racial animosity. But I think it has gotten even worse and I think that the president should be speaking out about this. And he should reprimand and censor Alan Grayson for what he said.

But I think the big difference is that the president does not share that same experience that young men such as myself and women have seen and understand what the Ku Klux Klan represents in this country, especially if you grew up down south. But why isn't Nancy Pelosi speaking out about this? Why isn't Debbie Wasserman Schultz or Harry Reid? You know, we continue to hear the use of this extremist language, jihadist language, arsonist, extortionist and now this equating constitutional conservatives -- people that just believe in a constitutional way of government to operate -- with people who are responsible for lynchings and horrible things in the South and all across this country.
