Allen West wants to rescue blacks from the Democrats' "plantation"

Last Call Friday | Listen to this entire show:

On today’s Last Call we heard an audio clip from Fox's O'Reilly Factor from GOP Representative Allen West (FL), who’s dubbed himself the “modern day Harriet Tubman” trying to lead black voters off the Democrats' "21st-century plantation."

We also heard Rep. Maxine Waters’ response to West's assessment that she and other black leaders are nothing more than "overseers" on that plantation. Waters was speaking from an Atlanta job fair that drew over 3,000 out of work people – including, ironically, Rep. West’s brother. West had suggested Waters might help him find a job. After that, we opened up the phones.
