A Democratic lawmaker says Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) “deliberately” offended members of the Congressional Black Caucus by having chicken and biscuits from Chick-fil-A catered to their weekly meeting, the Huffington Post reports.
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) said West even went a step further and walked out of the meeting even though it was his turn to provide the group with a formal lunch. He told the Huffington Post that the incident took place roughly 6 months ago but he apparently feels they are relevant given the recent controversy surrounding restaurant President Dan Cathy’s decision to publicly back traditional marriage.
West recently voiced his support of Chick-fil-A.
“We have a rotation in the Congressional Black Caucus where every member provides the lunch one of the weeks when we meet,” Hastings told HuffPo on Monday.
“We have fried chicken. And we have catfish and BBQ. We do not have watermelon, although sometimes people will have fruit. We serve a full course meal with collard greens. We have Jamaican beans and rice,” Hastings said. “But West ”sent Chick-fil-A with biscuits. Ok?”
“That was an ‘in your face.’ Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus that was there was offended,” he added.
West is the only Republican member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Even though the Chick-fil-A controversy hadn’t erupted yet, Hastings said lawmakers were insulted because they felt West was making as statement and promoting the conservative views held by Chick-fil-A ownership.
Fuck the Congressional Black Caucus
Things I ponder:
Why are the Congressional Black Caucus all Democrats "except maybe two"?
Why do all unions vote Democrat?
Why did 98% of black voters, vote for barry?
Why do all government workers vote Democrat?
Why do all people on government assistance vote Democrat?
Why do most Mexican's vote Democrat?
Why do Jew's vote Democrat?
