Allen West is a crazy Tea Party Republican , and former Congressman of Florida who served one term from 2011 to 2013. He was defeated for reelection by Patrick Murphy in 2012.
In 2013 Fox News hired him as a political commentator , even though his knowledge of politics is questionable. He’s also a fervent gun nut and NRA board member who believes that the second amendment was written specifically for the overthrow of the federal government should it ever become tyrannical , which in the minds of wing nuts like West , it already has , because “Barack Hussein Obama” is in the White House.
Like most of his fellow Tea Partiers , he believes Obama is a America hating , Alinsky – Ayers – Davis inspired Marxist socialist with a soft spot in his heart for radical Islamic terrorists. He’s also a master at playing the race card whenever it’s convenient ( which happens to be quite often ) , which is not only ironic , but quite laughable since he’s always accusing liberals and president Obama of doing the same.
His followers and fans fawn over him adoringly , and accept everything he says as the gospel truth , as if he were a God send to both the Tea and Republican Parties.
West has made some outrageous claims over the years that prove his mind has turned to mush :
House Democrats are communists. Speaking at a town hall meeting in April 2012 , West made a fool of himself , as he’s done on many occasions , when he claimed that the majority of Democrats in Congress were card-carrying communists. Of course , he didn’t mention any names. West is the typical Tea Party bomb thrower. Throw something out and hope it sticks , and with a ridiculous statement such as this one , it stuck like glue. Politifact investigated his claim , and rated it pants on fire.
Soledad O’Brien on CNN challenged him on his claim , but he refused to name any names , proving that he is nothing more than a bomb throwing agitator.
Goebbels would be proud of Democrats. To space cadets like West , liberals and Democrats are either communists or Nazis , or both. They can’t seem to make up their minds , and they often fail to make a distinction between the two. On this occasion , apparently upset over a poll that Americans blamed Republicans more than Democrats for failing to get anything done in Congress , West lashed out at the Democratic Party saying that “Goebbels would be proud of their propaganda machine.” Of course it was business as usual with Allen West , another classic case of projection. He managed to piss off both the National Jewish Democratic Council , and the Anti Defamation League. He also managed to pull the victim card , blaming reporters for twisting his words , which were well within context.
Barack Obama is a socialist agitator. It always goes back to Alinsky and Ayers. Since Obama campaigned for the presidency , Conservatives have had an unhealthy obsession with both Ayers and Alinsky , and have been determined to find some kind of damning link between the three of them. Because Barack Obama was involved with ACORN and his hometown community of Chicago in his younger days , that automatically made him a socialist communist? By that logic , anyone who is involved in their communities must be socialist agitators.
Obama supporters are a threat to the gene pool. Anyone who takes what Allen West says as fact , is even more of a space cadet than he is. Allen West , and his supporters are the only threat to the gene pool.
I am your modern-day Harriet Tubman. Apparently Allen West is Harriet Tubman , Martin Luther King , Gandhi , Jesus Christ , and Moses , who will lead black Americans from the racist Democrat plantation to the promised land of freedom , the Republican Party , which is flowing with milk and honey , where unicorns soar through rainbows. Like most Republicans , West believes the Democratic Party is part of the racist South , and that the Southern Strategy is just another liberal myth.
Religious co-existence will destroy America. There is one bumper sticker in America that enrages Allen West more than the Obama sticker. The religious co-exist sticker is even more of an outrage. West has no love for Islam , or any religion other than Christianity. Being a Christian himself ( or so he claims ) , he believes America is a Christian nation where only Christians should have rights , and that the government should grant Christians special rights over other religions. He believes that Islam has infiltrated every aspect of American life , and that it is slowly but surely taking over the country , and that “Barack Hussein Obama” is the Infiltrater In Chief.
Sharia law comes to Wal-Mart. West is also a master at playing the victim card. He once posted on his blog that he had been a victim of sharia law at a Dallas Wal-Mart store. During a shopping visit with his daughter , he was attempting to purchase alcohol from a young Muslim employee whose name was not Steve. The employee refused to make the purchase , because apparently he was under age , and West blew his top , posting his outrageous experience on his website. Supposedly , his daughter asked why “Not Steve” could refuse service based on his religious beliefs , but Christians were forced to do just the opposite.
Apparently , West later contacted the store and discovered that “Not Steve” was under twenty-one, and updated the title to the post to , “More Ominous Signs Of Christian Persecution”. Wackos like West believe that Christians are under assault from “Barack Hussein Obama” , Democrats , and the liberal media , even though there is no such assault.
Get the hell out of America. During a GOP Lincoln day dinner at Tony Kravis Center in Palm Beach Florida , West told Obama , Harry Reid , and Nancy Pelosi to get the hell out of America with their message of equality , achievement , economic dependency , of enslaving the will of the American people , and take it to the bottom of the sea , take it to Europe , or take it to the North Pole , but get the hell out!
In other words , if you’re not a Conservative and don’t believe in our values and principles , you’re not a real American.
More Allen West craziness : he’s also accused the president of siding with ISIS , who , he claimed , supports an Islamic caliphate ; once claimed that the Democratic Party has always been about fear mongering , and are the party of segregation , Jim Crow , intimidation , and voter fraud ; American news agencies should be censored ; some random dude on a plane told him the real story of what happened in Benghazi ; and that Obama was out to get white people because of a tanning tax in the Affordable Health Care Act.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste , and in my opinion , West has wasted his political career spouting nonsense that only like-minded wing nuts would find credible.
