Allen West is the latest victim of the P.C. Police and identity politics:
Two sources familiar with what happened told BuzzFeed that West had gotten into an argument with a female employee and called her a "Jewish American princess" while telling her to "shut up." Reached by phone, West told BuzzFeed he was leaving his job voluntarily, though one source familiar with the situation told BuzzFeed he had been fired..."No I didn’t get fired," West said. "I’m leaving to pursue political aspirations. That’s it. There’ll be a statement that comes out and it’s effective in October." Asked specifically whether he referred to the employee as a "Jewish American princess," West said simply, "There was an exchange, that’s all."I'm not understanding why this didn't go over well at Depends Media.
Surely other vocal opponents of political correctness will denounce the enemies of free speech who have silenced a great man. I fully expect Glenn Reynolds to resign out of principle in response to Aubrey Chernick's attack on a black man, and for FOX News to double the brother's salary now that's he's out of his other job due to ethnic sensitivity run amok. This can only be made right by Depends' immediate reinstatement of West, and the termination of the woman who -- like so many others -- has slandered Col. West.
And, if not, Al's just wrapped up his victory in that Florida Senate race.
