Conservative commentator Greg Gutfeld savaged left-wing double standards on race and politics in America on Wednesday, claiming that “the scariest two words in a white liberal dictionary are ‘Allen West,'” the former black conservative congressman.
Gutfeld spoke on Fox News’ “The Five” regarding comments made by Reverend William Barber II, president of North Carolina’s chapter of the NAACP. Barber said on Sunday that Tim Scott, a black Republican senator from South Carolina, is a dummy for ventriloquist white Republicans and does not think for himself.
“The Five’s” panelists vehemently disputed that characterization. “It’s getting tiring,” said Eric Bolling. “We have a black president, we have black senators, we have black heads — captains of business, companies. We have black entertainment channels. Where — is there racism? I don’t think there’s racism. I think the only people perpetuating racism are people like this gentleman from the NAACP, are the Al Sharptons of the world.”
As the token liberal on the panel, Bob Beckel felt compelled to disagree. “I don’t understand why it is that black conservatives always feel like they’re — you know, they’re disenfranchised or nobody likes them,” he said, to outrage from the panel. “Maybe I didn’t phrase that right,” he backtracked. “Why is it that black conservatives believe that nobody listens to them, that they have the answers and that we’re constantly drowning them out?”
Greg Gutfeld, however, was having none of it. “The scariest two words in a white liberal dictionary are ‘Allen West,'” he declared. “If they see him walking down the street, they cross it and get fleeced by Al Sharpton. It’s white liberals, in every — whether it’s on social networks or on TV — that mock black conservatives. The way they treat Mia Love, the way they treat Allen West, the way they treat Tim Scott. It’s not an exception. It’s the rule.”
