    SNIP:


    byJoel Gehrke Commentary Staff Writer
    Follow on Twitter:Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., charged President Obama with "fomenting racism" in his reelection efforts, noting also that Obama is a "literal manifestation" of how Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement succeeded.

    "With all of this progress, why is it that we continue to hear charges of racism emanating from the left, and most disturbingly, from the White House itself?" West said in a statement today. "It seems anytime there is criticism of the President or any of his black members of his administration, such as Attorney General Eric Holder, that criticism is decried as racist." West recalled, in particular, that Holder has claimed some of his critics following Operation Fast and Furious were motivated by racial animus.

    West said that "this [2012] campaign must be about ideas, policy and the direction of this country, and the President must not hide behind a curtain of so-called racial bias."

    He concluded by suggesting that Dr. King would be "devasted" by Obama's handling of racial issues as president:

    My message to President Obama is this: 'Mr. President, your very in office demonstrates Dr. King's dream has indeed come true. But how devastated would Dr. King be to know the Americans who are still fomenting racism at the highest levels are the very people for whom he fought for and died?"

    And President Obama's message back to Rep. West should be laughter. I see West has assumed the mantle of Head Coon from Herman Cain. Look at the difference between West and Tim Scott, both black conservative republicans. One a Kingmaker, one a court jester. Yet the Tea Party crowd only starts threads about one. I wonder why?

    And what are YOU, Salt, but an example of the very kind of hatred Dr, King and so many others tried so hard to end? You, who openly say you hate white people just because they are white? Sad. Honest, but sad.
