There’s a good reason why the word “former” is next to “Congressman Allen West.” His distorted version of the truth is poisonous.

[West] responded to reports that Attorney General Eric Holder wants school disciplinary policies based on race by calling Holder one of the “most vile and disgusting racists” and telling white Americans that Barack Obama despises them.

“This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before ‘you people’ realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you — not to mention his henchman Holder,” he wrote. “Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists.”

What’s vile and disgusting is that anyone would take this off-kilter person seriously.
