Allen West

by maxanonymouse

Allen West is in many ways the conscience of the Tea Party Movement .  A twenty year military veteran defending the United States and our Constitution in combat deployments to Iraq; from a military family—his father served in World War II, his brother in Vietnam. Even his mother was a civilian employer for the Marine Corps.

Allen West received his Bachelor’s degree from University of Tennessee; a Master’s Degree in Political Science from Kansas State University  and a Master’s of Military Arts and Sciences from US army Command and General Staff Officer College.  This is a man who understands our History and our Military and our Constitution.

Allen West is a man who speaks the Truth even when it would be more “politic” not to.  He is exactly the kind of Person this country needs now: he has the Courage to stand against  Republican Rinos and  Democrat Socialists. He has the courage to call them as he sees them  We all know that there are Politicians in America who believe in Socialist principles: central planning as opposed to the Free Market; Redistribution of Wealth—both concepts belonging to Socialism/Communism.  We need to stop being afraid to call things by their names. When Allen West told people there were 80 or so members of the Communist Party in Congress, he was telling the truth.  How many of us remember the Maxine Waters video where she says that she would be all about “Socializing the oil industry”; but she stops herself after saying the word Socializing, realizing that she is “letting the cat out of the bag”.  Actually if we  Americans had paid more attention over the years to our Representatives, we would have seen by their actions that there are some who  believe in Communist ideas. Remember when Congressman Danny Davis received an award from the CPUSA? There was a post interview on video which I see has been wiped from the internet.   We have just been asleep and Congress has gotten used to us being asleep.  I am grateful to the Tea Party and particularly to Allen West for waking us all up.

During Black History Month, Allen West had the Courage to stand on the House floor and tell the truth about the History of the Republican Party: that since its inception the Republican Party has always stood for the rights of African Americans and that regarding the 14th Amendment—every vote for it was a Republican and every vote against it was a Democrat.  It was the Democrats who used poll taxes  and literacy tests to intimate Blacks and keep them from voting.

Then why would the Republican Party in Florida gerrymander West’s district to make it easier for a Democrat to win and  run someone against him in the primary as well?

Here’s what Armstrong Williams has to say about that in an article called:

“Allen West Betrayed”

Can someone please explain to me why the Republican party of Florida allowed Congressman Allen West to be gerrymandered out of his congressional district?

West is the most prominent and best-spoken elected conservative in the United States. He’s a motorcycle-riding war hero, a passionate Christian, and a patriot. He’s the first black Republican Congressman from Florida since Reconstruction, and he is as strong a vice presidential candidate as anyone. Now he might not even have his seat in Congress next year. Why do we want to take one of our best players out of the game?

It would make sense if this were Massachusetts or California: if a Democrat-majority state had tried to force out Congressman West, we could easily see why. But this is a battleground state, and one whose legislature is run by his fellow Republicans. While some might think that it might be better to have someone safe, someone timid, in such an environment, I disagree wholeheartedly: it is precisely in such tight races that we need someone who can motivate the base to show up on Election Day, and someone who can get people excited. If our candidates don’t look any different from the Democrats, what would be the point of voting for them?

Florida is going to be perhaps the most important state in this year’s elections. It is the fourth-largest in the union, and a toss-up swing state where Republicans have a huge majority of the Congressional delegation. Its only rival in electoral significance is Ohio. Do we Republicans want powerful voices representing the party in these states, or weak ones?

What makes West different from other Republican congressmen? Precisely what makes him a rock star: his courage, his eloquence, and his integrity. The mighty Establishment can’t control him; they fear him. His only fault is that he didn’t embrace the Republican establishment when their views were contrary to those of the Tea Party.

As he said to Nancy Pelosi, “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. 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.”

And now this current Political Ad which shows Allen West hitting women and children—a racist ad if ever there was one. But you don’t hear anything from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. WHY? Because when the African American is a Conservative the Rules of the game change. Because it really has nothing to do with Racism, it is really all about Democrats maintaining their base of voters which they are terrified to allow to think for themselves. Imagine 100’s more Allen Wests, Thomas Sowells, Star Parkers, Deneen Borellis, CL Bryants.Walter Williams.

And why isn’t someone in Florida addressing the fact that this Political Ad against Allen West is being run by an organization which includes the father of his Democrat opponent and that opponent has contributed money to that organization running the ad.  It sounds corrupt!

Here is Allen West’s Response to this Vile Ad:

I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans.  The ad being run against me by my opponent’s family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible. It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation. This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person’s character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity.

If you believe in the Constitution; if you believe in smaller government; if you believe in Truth –Please support and fight for Allen West in Florida 22. America Needs Allen West!
