West Says Racism Allegations
Against Tea Party By
Liberals Didn't Work

by Kevin Cullum - November 6th, 2010 - The Hill

Florida's first black Republican congressman credited the Tea Party with standing up against allegations of racism from the left in supporting his successful candidacy.

“So I think that the -- the liberal progressives saw the strength of the grass-roots movement that we call the Tea Party which stands for 'taxed enough already' and they tried to turn against it,” Rep.-elect Allen West (R-Fla.) said Friday on "Hannity" on Fox News.

“And the number one thing that you always try to do to silence an opponent in the United States of America is to call someone a racist.”

Elected in a District that is overwhelmingly white and wealthy, Colonel West was adored by the Tea Party movement. Though only grudgingly supported by the Republican establishment, West rode his Tea Party support to a convincing win. Veterans especially love the patriotic, ethical and courageous Allen West.

One of his early supporters was Sarah Palin, who considers West as one of our most important national leaders.
