Allen West allegedly fired from media job after calling female staffer ‘Jewish American princess’

In a message to staff members, West wrote that he will be leaving his position as director of programming to “get back on the front lines of to expand the message of constitutional conservatism across our country.”

According to a report this Thursday afternoon from Buzzfeed, Former Congressman Allen West has left his job at Pajamas Media after he got into an altercation with a female staffer, allegedly calling her a “Jewish American princess.”

In a message to staff members, West wrote that he will be leaving his position as director of programming to “get back on the front lines to expand the message of constitutional conservatism across our country.”

Inside sources told Buzzfeed that West had gotten into an argument with a female employee and called her a “Jewish American princess” along with telling her to “shut up.”

In a phone interview with Buzzfeed, West said that he was leaving his job “voluntarily.” However, his statement is in direct contrast to one of Buzzfeed’s sources who said that West had been fired. In the phone interview, West didn’t deny that the confrontation took place, but said that his leaving the position wasn’t tied to any one event.

“No, I didn’t get fired,” West said. “I’m leaving to pursue political aspirations. That’s it. There’ll be a statement that comes out and it’s effective in October.”

When Buzzfeed asked West to specifically address the alleged anti-Semitic remarks, West said simply, “There was an exchange. That’s all.”

West is a controversial conservative figure who joined PJ Media’s Next Generation TV in January, hosting a web show with former Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields and L.A. radio host John Phillips.

    Come on folks that is not a racist remark if she is in fact Jewish anymore than calling a black girl a African Queen. Get real. It a comment on attitude denoting privileged behavior more than anything.

    Allen West is a three times loser: he’s been thrown out of military, Congress and now even his fellow wingnut jackasses don’t want him!

    After reviewing who he was working for, I’m not surprised he was canned. I’m more surprised they didn’t have armed security escort him out of the building.

    I’m Jewish and that term is NOT anti-Semitic. West is an idiot, but in this case they must have been looking for any reason to dump him.

    Looks like Rodney simply refuses to see what is obvious to anyone else. There are appropriate behaviors and inappropriate ones. Allen West chose to be inappropriate, and he is reaping the rewards he sowed.

    forget “racist” – it’s rude unprofessional and unacceptable in the workplace. 🙂
    you can’t draw attention to your coworkers’ ethnicity
    or call people “princesses”.
    what world do you live in where this is acceptable?
    have you no home training??

    Okay Allen West is awful, but calling someone a JAP is not particularly anti-semitic.

    You and I could use the term. He can not.
    Same as you wouldn’t even dare to use the N-word, no matter in what heartwarming & endearing context

    I don’t get it. If she is indeed jewish, and was acting like a princess, then he was right. And I hate teabagging republicans.

    It’s never the words… it’s who is saying them and what they mean by them. A tea party conservative black man calling a Jewish female anything negative has a history of two minorities disdain for one another behind it. Plus, West is a douche nozzle. Case closed.

    Alright, someone else called them out on this first! I was gonna say if they’re walking around calling women “African Queens” they’re the last person I’d ask for good examples of non-racist interactions.

    There goes their token black guy. Now where are they going to find another self-loathing black guy who laughs off being referred to by the n-word by his colleagues on a daily basis?

    MY kindest response to phil parmet is that his remark was amazingly insensitive. But then, I am often kind this early in the morning.

    Jewish American Princess is a term of affection, first brought to my attention, by other Jews. I have never heard of it being thought of as an insult.
    That being said. To Hell with Alan West.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
