Allen West was in rare form over the weekend spewing his usual hate and telling natural-born citizens that they need to get the hell out of their own country. His list was short but the names were folks with heft including President Obama.
Oh yes he went there saying, “We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend chairman of the Democratic National Committee — we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table. 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 … Get the hell out of the United States of America.”
Now that is some over the top bullsh*t. I can’t even pick this message apart for code words but I know they are there. Hmm…enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit, is this all about how raising taxes on the rich is going to cripple small businesses? Equality of achievement…is this code for class warfare? As usual West says his comments were taken out of context when asked by CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien. He told O’Brien he just wants the America back that allowed an inner city kid from Atlanta to now represent the highest-income zip code in the entire United States of America(more on that in a bit). What does that even mean?
Well dummy if that’s the America you want then why can’t you see how the policies of your party are destroying those chances and NOT just President Obama. Your own party will vote against things that are good for the so-called American people all in the name of standing against a President they despise. You know the one you called the low-level socialist agitator.
But Mr. West was appealing to his base(the Tea Party)and screaming about folks needing to go like they made him go from the military after he fired a shot near the head of a civilian Iraqi police officer who was allegedly involved in a plot to ambush West and his men. The police officer was also beaten about the head and the body and proved, perhaps, that interrogations don’t necessarily work when he admitted he gave names out of fear. West was charged with violating articles 128 and 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and fined $5,000. West admitted he knew what he was doing was wrong but wanted to protect his men. You can’t blame him for that but his gung-ho method is what got him in trouble.
I don’t get West, he epitomizes a buffoon with all of his crazy talk like how he wants to lead black folks off of the democratic plantation as the modern-day Harriet Tubman, he calls anyone with 2012 Obama bumper sticker a threat to the gene pool and my favorite (and the thing that got him kicked out of the army), “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.” One has to wonder what happened to that inner city kid from Atlanta and why he’s so angry all the time. Does he realize that a portion of America would like for him and folks that look like him to get the hell of the U.S.A.
A bit of irony though, West current district seat has been redrawn with a heavily Democratic tilt, raising speculation he’ll run elsewhere and he announced yesterday he will do just that. What happened Allen West-Tubman why can’t you lead those Democrats in your old district to vote for you? You could always fire a gun near their heads to get their attention.
