Lib Bob Beckel Goes Off on Allen West: "You're Ignorant and Sophomoric"

4y ago


Liberal Bob Beckel went off on Allen West on The Five today, "Everybody has a right to speak even if it's stupid things that they say... When I said he was a blowhard I know where that comes from because I am too. I don't know what he ever did. I went down and registered blacks in the south. Did he ever do that? I got beat up by a bunch of rednecks in the south. Did he ever do it? I went and demonstrated in front of a Denny's because they wouldn't serve black people. Did he ever do it?... He called us a racist which is absolutely obscene. It's OK Allen I forgive you. You're ignorant and it's sophomoric."
