Allen West on Why Jesse and Al Won’t Talk ‘Knockout Game’: “There’s No Profit In It For Them” (Video)
Former Rep. Allen West was On the Record tonight. Greta Van Susteren asked him why Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton were silent on the dozens of “knockout game” attacks by black youths across the nation. Allen West responded,
“There’s no profit in it for them. There’s no political gain. There’s no political advantage for them… They don’t care. They live off the victimization. So as long as you have black communities that see themselves as victims, that helps perpetuate their existence. These guys should be totally irrelevant. Should not be listened to whatsoever.“
Once again, Allen West is right on.
