Allen West Reportedly Loses
His Job Over a Politically
Incorrect Slur

Atlantic Wire, by Abby Ohlheiser

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 9/26/2013 5:34:54 PM

Allen West reportedly called a female employee a "Jewish American princess," resulting in the loss of his job. While some of the famously outspoken former congressman´s supporters might see the situation as political correctness gone wrong, the latest incident happened an the epicenter of the anti-PC police rebel alliance: Pajamas Media. Buzzfeed explains that West "voluntarily" left his position at the media outlet, effective at the end of this month. Here´s an email — obtained by Rosie Gray — to the PJ Media staff: "In order to focus on political interests, Allen West will transition from his full-time role as

Seems it´s about time for any and all conservative speakers to prepare to place a piece of tape over their mouth. Seems that´s what the left is aiming for, and achieving.

Maybe she acted like she was a princess and wanted people to cater to her and if she is Jewish and is an American-------what´s the big deal?

PC is a one-way street in today´s politics. Conservative Republican: ostracized by the MSM, and driven out. Liberal Dem: ignored by the MSM, position secured.

Cases in point: Ted Kennedy (with women), Joe Biden (with Indians), LBJ (we´ll have the "they" vote for the next umpteen years). Their actions are even more hypocritical.

But what to do? Is it any wonder that PC is such a powerful force that a slip of the tongue can have such consequences? As James declared: "the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity ... no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison."

Hillary Clinton called Paul Fray an "effing Jew b**t**d" after Bill Clinton lost his race for Congress. Fray cleared the polygraph exam he was given after making the charge.

Of course, foul language is mild compared to some other things done by these two icons of the Dem Party.

I have utmost respect for Allen West. Just guessing, but, if I were a betting woman, I´d bet he has endured a "politically incorrect" slur or two, from time to time, that would make "Jewish American Princess" seem like a compliment. Speaking of which, that is so mild as to be innocuous compared with the personally offensive remarks, about Republicans, from Dem politicians on an almost daily basis these days.

It would be interesting to know the whole story behind this. It´s always interesting to learn the offensive behavior some people put up with from any number of persons, yet become mightily offended at the slightest hint of disagreement from others.

This bit of bilge comes from the Atlantic, always a dependable source of misinformation.

The term “Jewish American Princess” is a widely known expression; a good-natured, humorous cliché that’s been around for decades. Anyone who deems its utterance malicious is just looking for a problem that doesn’t exist. Lighten up! Save your rabble-rousing for something worthy of it.

almost funny, really.
The very first time I ever heard the term, it had to be explained to me. More than 25 years ago. In the *heavily* Jewish community of Shaker Heights, Ohio. By an individual known locally as a "Hadassah Lady". Some of you might just understand the reference. By her account, it was in occasional use *within* the Jewish community of the area. I took her word on the matter.
So J.A.P. is forbidden, but hick, cracker, redneck, wood, ofay, Billy Bob, knuckle-dragger, and the like are approved, is that it?

It´s just another way to get around misusing the term ´jap´ ~ apparantly someone thought it was cute to come up with a "j a p" acronymn that would fool the ignant masses or something.

BTW, doesn´t really work ~ identifies you as someone who imagines white folks are all WASPs ~ some of them really aren´t any of that.

BTW, the Chicoms have their own expression for the JAPanese ~ "evil dwarves" ~ and a special character!

You can check around in www.yellowbridge.com for whatever you might need to translate to and from Chinese written language and English, or any other language. The Japanese always get ´special´ treatment eh! Lotsa´ love there.

The liberal Democrats are always going to make a mountain out of a molehill anytime they can get a handle on a conservative Republican. He is probably lucky they did not find a liberal Democrat prosecutor to criminalize whatever happened between West and the woman.

Reportedly the Obama Administration was comparing the Republicans to terrorists yesterday, so anything is possible.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

The victim in an early morning shooting in Walker County has been identified as Ronald Westbrook, a 72-year-old Alzheimer´s patient. Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
