Allen West Sucks

I think Allen West Sucks for his outrageous, hateful, despicable comments and behavior… his comments about President Obama and Democrats. IMO, West is UNFIT to hold any position in Elected Representative Government.

 

Rep. Allen West’s 15 Most Outrageous Statements

In two short years in the U.S. House of Representatives, congressman Allen West has earned a reputation for making the most irresponsible statements which are clearly intended to attract media attention, spark debate, and fire up his most fervent right-wing supporters.

Per the above article, here’s a list of some of Allen West’s most outrageous statements;

(1) “YOU ARE NOT A LADY”: In July 2011, West responded to a perceived slight from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (R-FL) with a fiery letter in which he threatened her and scolded, “You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!” West later said he had apologized, but Wasserman-Schultz said she had not received one.

(2) JOSEPH GOEBBELS WOULD “BE VERY PROUD” OF DEMOCRATS: In December, West told reporters, “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine.” The link to Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda from 1933 to 1945, drew criticism from several members of Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, and others.

(3) LIBERALS “GET THE HELL OUT”: Speaking at the Palm Beach County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner in last month, West said of liberals, “Take your message of equality of achievement. … You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.” West later tried to walk back the statement, claiming he was only referring to “the message” and not liberals themselves.

(4) “A THREAT TO THE GENE POOL”: In a July 2011 post on the website Red Country, West wrote, “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”

(5) “I’M GOING TO KILL YOU”: Before running for Congress, West had a 22-year career in the military, but left after he abused an Iraqi detainee: “This is it. I’m going to count to five again, and if you don’t give me what I want, I’m going to kill you.” He then fired a shot “a foot” over the detainee’s head.

(6) “NUTS!”: West has often clashed with opponents over the issue of Islam. In August 2011, a chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked West to sever ties with anti-Muslim activists. In response, West sent a letter which read only, “I am writing to you with regard [sic] your recent letter: NUTS!” Why West chose this response is a mystery, although he might have been quoting a World War II general who responded that way when the Nazis told him to surrender.

7) “WE ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE OUR MEN BECOME SUBSERVIENT”: In April 2011, West told a conservative women’s conference that liberal women “have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow.”

(8) “BLINDLY FOLLOWING A COMMANDER IN CHIEF”: Talking with radio host Mark Levin last month, West said Generals “have to be very careful about blindly following a commander in chief that really does not have the best intent for our military.” What West did not mention was that officers are constitutionally bound to follow the President’s orders unless they are illegal.

(9) I AM “THE MODERN-DAY HARRIET TUBMAN”: Speaking with O’Reilly Factor guest host Laura Ingraham in August 2011, West said the Democratic party is a “21st-century plantation.” He added, “So I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman, to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad, away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”

(10) “LET THEM GET SHOT AT”: In May 2011, the House narrowly defeated a proposal which would have required President Obama to submit a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan. Of those who voted for the bill, West said, “I would take these gentlemen over and let them get shot at a few times and maybe they’d have a different opinion.” This was just months after the shooting of former Rep. Gabby Giffords.

(11) “WE ALSO SHOULD BE CENSORING THE AMERICAN NEWS AGENCIES”: In response to the whistleblower website Wikileaks releasing thousands of pages of diplomatic cables, West declared: “And I think that we also should be censoring the American news agencies which enabled [Julian Assange] to do this and also supported him and applauding him for the efforts.” West later claimed he only called for “censuring” the media. Either way, it would be a First Amendment violation.

(12) “I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS A KIDNAPPING ATTEMPT”: When West first ran for Congress in 2008, the Arab news network Al Jazeera asked for an interview. West recalled, “But my b.s. flag really went up when [Al Jazeera] said they wanted my address, to pick me up at night. They said they would send a car but wouldn’t tell me where it was going. I don’t know if it was a kidnapping attempt. But I am not going to entrust Al Jazeera with my life. I said, ‘Cancel the interview!’”

(13) RELIGIOUS COEXISTENCE “WOULD GIVE AWAY OUR COUNTRY”: During a March 2011 town hall, West talked about the “Coexist” movement, saying of their bumper stickers: “Every time I see one of those bumper stickers, I look at the person inside that is driving. Because that person represents something that would give away our country. Would give away who we are, our rights and freedoms and liberties because they are afraid to stand up and confront that which is the antithesis, anathema of who we are.”

(14) “GEORGE BUSH GOT SNOOKERED”: During the same town hall, West claimed: “George Bush got snookered into going into some mosque, taking his shoes off, and then saying that Islam was a religion of peace.”

(15) DEMOCRATS SUPPORT “MOST INSIDIOUS FORM OF SLAVERY”: Just yesterday, West accused Democrats of supporting the worst form of slavery known today. “The Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today,” West said.

 

Rachel Maddow discusses Allen West’s FALSE claim “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party”

 

PolitiFact – Allen West says about 80 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party

Speaking at a town hall meeting, Republican Allen West made the startling claim that many of his fellow members of the U.S. House of Representatives are members of the Communist Party. The, a newspaper that covers northern Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, reported on comments the South Florida congressman made at a town hall in Jensen Beach on April 10, 2012.

PolitiFact rated Allen West’s claim of “78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party” Pants on Fire FALSE

 

As shown above, the American Communist Party stated that there are NO members of congress who are members of the Communist Party.

 

Joe Scarborough calls Allen West out for falsely claiming “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party”, and demanded West apologize.

 

The above video does a great job exposing how Republicans are hypocrites who engage in, and condone Socialism for the Rich in the form of farm subsidies (22 billion in 2019 alone), tax payer funded sports stadiums, corporate bails-outs for banks, large corporations,  etc, but harsh “pull yourself by up by your own bootstraps” Capitalism for everyone else.

For decades, Republicans has used the term “Socialism” and “Socialist” as a scare tactic to try and keep people from voting for Democrats.

Republicans like to proclaim… “The United States will NEVER be a Socialist Country”.

Well, it already is and they’re either too stupid to realize it, or too dishonest to admit it. Here’s examples of Socialism we all take for granted…

Guaranteed public education

Public transportation

Fire departments

Police departments

Public libraries

Every branch of the US military

Roads & highways

Social Security

Medicare/medicaid

Public, not private prisons & jails

Public hospitals

The Veterans Affairs Administration

Public universities

Public parks

Public toilets

Public drinking fountains

Public parking

Public everything

 

Here’s some of the typical ridiculous claims Republicans make about Democrats and “Socialism”.

 

Taxpayers, stadiums, and sports socialism

Taxpayer funded construction of sports stadiums is rarely an investment that generates enough revenue to justify the expense.

John Elroy executive vice president of football operations for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL), say’s he’s a Republican because he’s against “safety nets”.

Republicans keep saying they are less government and wasteful spending. As shown in this video, a Democrat Mayor in Atlanta said NO to construction of a new taxpayer funded sports stadium while a Republican in a nearby town said YES.

This is an example of “Welfare for the Wealthy” and how Republicans have no problem using millions of taxpayer money for sports, but do not want to help regular Americans and the poor.

Sports and Farm Bill Socialism “safety nets” is OK fine with Republicans but most of these Repub scrooges don’t believe in helping the poor.

 

‘Get The Hell Out’ Of The U.S. – Rep. West Grilled For Comments

“Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was a guest on Soledad O’Brien’s Starting Point Tuesday morning, and was confronted with questions about his now-infamous, “get the hell out of the United States” comments from over the weekend, directed at Democrats Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz

 

Rep. Allen West Embodies ‘Conduct Unbecoming’

If there is any phrase that can sum up Rep. Allen West (R-FL), it is ‘conduct unbecoming.’ He has gained fame by making outlandish and insulting comments and then chalking them up to being the quintessential ‘military man.’ In reality, West is a man…

Per the above article: “If there is any phrase that can sum up Rep. Allen West (R-FL), it is ‘conduct unbecoming.’ He has gained fame by making outlandish and insulting comments and then chalking them up to being the quintessential ‘military man.’ In reality, West is a man very much frozen in a moment in his life where he has lost control of himself and lost his military career as a result. Instead of dealing with that mistake, he has doubled down on it in his political career and become a hero to many because of it”.

“While serving as a Battalion Commander in Taji, Iraq in 2004, West lost control and performed a “mock execution” on an unarmed, detained Iraqi police officer in front of junior soldiers. No hard intelligence leading to anything of value came of the incident. West claimed he was protecting himself and his soldiers and the victim gave information about a planned IED attack. There were hundreds of thousands of soldiers in Iraq in 2004, myself included, led by hundreds of Battalion Commanders who also wanted to protect their soldiers. None of them resorted to mock executions to do so. Everyone there was under threat. West’s conduct was unbecoming of an officer. When an Article 32 investigation found that West violated articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he was relieved of command, and fined $5,000. He was allowed to retire with full benefits”.

“Since winning election to Congress, he has become a hero to the Tea Party right and recently suggested by some, including Sarah Palin, as a possible GOP pick for Mitt Romney’s vice president. Brazen, rash, and insulting conduct is a continuing pattern for West. He has frequently and personally attacked President Obama and called his supporters a ‘threat to the gene pool’, famously attacked fellow Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, railed against practicing-Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for being a threat to ‘American principles’, and yesterday accused many congressional Democrats of being ‘communists’. West often justifies his conduct by citing his military service and claiming, “That’s the way it’s done in the military.”

“But it isn’t. In the military, when a leader has a dispute with peers, it can get rather ugly. But it is either handled publicly in a professional manner or privately in person and face-to-face. Things are certainly not sugarcoated and are often curt and to the point, but they are not dragged before the media or turned into a divisive whisper campaign that undermines unit or national cohesion. Everyone loses their control occasionally, but Allen West has an established pattern of conduct in which he frequently exhibits poor judgment or control of his behavior or actions. When questioned about it, he cites his time spent in the military, an institution which came to reject his conduct”.

“Allen West does not represent the quintessential ‘military man’. His conduct in Iraq and his frequent outbursts in Congress are not in keeping with military tradition. It often appears that West is a man who is at war with the progressive worldview, which he blames for ending his military career. In truth, it was his own poor judgment and loss of control that ended his career. Unfortunately, he continues to behave in the same rash manner as a Representative in Congress as he did in Iraq. It is rather telling of what sort of an institution we have in our Congress when behavior the military rejects will win notoriety or applause in our politics”.

 

“NUTS!” Allen West’s One-Word Response to South Florida Muslim Group

Congressman and possible senator Allen West lives in his own serene and strange reality where, no doubt, his recent response to a local Islamic group makes perfect sense. In early August, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent a 679-word letter to West urging him to cut ties with “anti-Islamic…

Former Congressman Blames Obama For Ukraine Plane Crash

Former Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) thinks President Barack Obama “indirectly responsible” for Thursday’s Malaysian Airlines plane crash in Ukraine, which U.S. officials say could have been caused by an anti-aircraft missile from pro-Russian separatists.

7/22/14 Allen West Blames Obama For Ukraine Plane Crash

Former Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) thinks President Barack Obama “indirectly responsible” for Thursday’s Malaysian Airlines plane crash in Ukraine, which U.S. officials say could have been caused by an anti-aircraft missile from pro-Russian separatists.

“The blood on Vladimir Putin’s hands was poured by Barack Obama, who is indirectly responsible, accountable and no different than Neville Chamberlain’s weakness in the face of the 20th Century maniacal dictator Adolf Hitler,” West, who maintains a relatively large following among conservative activists, wrote in a new post on his blog Friday.

“So much for no drama Obama,” West added. “He is purposefully creating drama globally.”

“Sadly, hundreds of Ukrainians and 298 souls on MH17 have paid the price for the weakness and abject cowardice of Obama’s ‘flexibility,'” West wrote. “And here in America we quibble over a lawsuit against this charlatan.”

ANYTHING to TRY and SMEAR Obama & Democrats, facts be damned, right West?

Well here’s how REPUBLICANS caused DEATHS and have been behaving like TRAITORS

 

IRAQ WAR

 

Ukrainian Plane Destruction & 176 Lives Lost

Ukrainian passenger plane carrying 176 people crashes near Tehran

The Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737 jet came down just minutes after take-off from Tehran today President Volodymyr Zelensky said there were no survivors among the 168 passengers and nine crew Ukraine’s foreign ministry revealed there were 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians and three Britons on flight PS752 Canadian prime minister

Experts claim the Ukrainian Plane was hit by an Iranian Missile

OPINION: This missile attack would not have happen and 176 lives would not have been lost if TRUMP hadn’t destroyed Obama’s Peace Deal with Iran.

Therefore an argument could be made that TRUMP is responsible the for 176 lives lost, the contractor who was killed and all of the fallout associated with the Iranian Peace deal being destroyed.

 

Obama, others warned Trump that ditching Iran deal could lead to war

At the U.N. General Assembly in 2017, the French president warned that jettisoning the deal “without anything to replace it would be a grave mistake.” And he added that the agreement was “essential to peace, at a time when the risk of an infernal spiral cannot be ruled out.”

Obama warned Trump that ditching Iran deal could lead to war and conflicts. Obama was right and Republicans was WRONG.

Dumb-Ass Republicans being wrong cost lives!

 

Tom Cotton Accepted $1 Million From Israel To Sabotage Iran Nuclear Deal

How much money does it take for a foreign nation to buy a United States Senator? Just ask Republican Tom Cotton. For a lousy $1 million paycheck, Israel hired Cotton to lead an effort to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal that the Obama Administration toiled for months to achieve.

According to the above article, Tom Cotton Accepted $1 Million From Israel To Sabotage Iran Nuclear Deal

The report states “Bill Kristol’s Emergency Committee for Israel donated to Cotton’s senatorial campaign and not long after taking office, Cotton penned a letter signed by 47 of his colleagues to Iranian leaders in an attempt to get them to abandon the negotiations by warning that a Republican president will not honor any deal struck. Then Cotton openly made an oath to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a trip to Israel in which he pledged his allegiance to Israel and vowed to sabotage the Iran deal”.

 

More Lives Lost Because of REPUBLICANS Making BAD Decisions

Massacre, Betrayal and Deaths of our Allies the Kurds, due to the “weakness” and “stupidity” of REPUBLICAN President Trump

 

REPUBLICAN Trump publicly asked the Russians to Commit Espionage and engaged in TREASON when he said; Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,”

 

Louie Gohmert called out for repeating Russian Propaganda

Louie Gohmert and Republicans are also help Russian Dictator and Murderer Vladimir Putin, by echoing proven-false & moronic talking points of blaming Ukraine for 2016 Election Interference.

 

Almost all of Russia’s objectives has been achieved with Trump being President, enabled by REPUBLICANS!

This cartoon ACCURATELY depicts how REPUBLICAN TRUMP behaved in Helsinki to the RUTHLESS DICTATOR of Russia, dedicated to the destruction of the United States of America.

 

 

Trump & Republicans incited violence, chaos and rioting in Washington, DC. Rioters storm the House & Senate chambers, wrecking havoc and destruction in the United States Capital.

Rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in protest of the rightful certification of electoral votes today in what some are calling an insurrection and an attempted coup. It is the first time the Capitol has been breached since British troops burned the building during the War of 1812. Supporters of President Trump were inflamed by a vitriolic speech given by Trump earlier in the morning, in which told them that the election was rigged, and told them to march on the capitol to “get tough.”

 

 

 

Congressmen who makes hateful, mean-spirited, divisive comments like “Get the hell out of the United States”, “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool”, calling a Muslim Group “NUTS” and FALSELY accusing congressmen of belonging to the “Communists Party” is UNFIT for ANY Public office.

West’s HATEFUL comments will NEVER be forgotten and if he ever runs for any public office again, I’ll bet ads will be ran reminding people of all the crazy, hateful, despicable comments he’s made and behavior he’s engaged in.
