This man is a joke, and a dirty one, which entitles any of us to say that no matter how many times he kicks America’s underdogs, the next time he whips it out to take a leak, it’ll be the same color as the last time he whipped it out to take a leak.

I was a registered Democrat after I got honorably discharged from the service.I voted pretty much a straight Democratic ticket. Then Taco Bill run for the Border Clinton ran for the Presidency. And he was a media darling,much like Barack Hussein Obama II is. when Clinton announced dangerous Fraud – I still trusted in the man I had been beguiled into voting for,and wrote a veterans opinion. the WhiteHouse responded by addressing their empty reply SEIG HEIL. I have not allowed the Democrats use my name as a member/supporter since. Nor will I .I am not a Republican because Trent Lott intervened in a Military Court Martial of an unrepentant adultress. proving the Republicans are only slightly more trustworthy -but as immoral sexually. I listen to Glenn Beck because I agree with him –when he is serious and I enjoy his humor when he entertains. But MR.Allen West would be a110% better as PResident than any Democrat living or dead.

I think this guy will be leaving Congress due to redistricting. and I think it was done on purpose by the GOP. They want him gone as bad as everybody else does.
this guy is just another idiot, and it makes you wonder how on earth he got elected. Is there some type of mind control in Florida?
Jan. 31st, 2012 at 10:39 am
Yeah, in the churches (with a few exceptions).
The other Florida Republicans are just as bad.

Your typical one-term Tea Party member of the House of Representatives…

With a little help, we can hog-tie this man and superglue his lips shut….no one will miss his racist, anti-American rhetoric.

Allan West is racist? How so, because he criticizes Obama? People like you are the reason this country is in the shape it’s in. Try thinking OUTSIDE your little box.

His criticisms go way beyond policy. Actually, he’s as big an Uncle Tom as Herman Cain is because he is willing to denigrate fellow blacks in order to curry favor with his fellow Teabaggers. He’s another hateful blowhard just like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sarah Palin among others. The only difference between him and them is that he’s black.

“If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine. Let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit with this and enabling them to get that type of message out.”
I swear whenever Republicans speak ill of someone they are really talking about themselves.

It’s called “projection”; they project upon others what they themselves are doing. It’s like the man who batters his wife and then tells her it’s her fault because the food was cold when he was late coming home for dinner.

Republicans also are masters of “The Big Lie”, whereby you say something so outrageous that it’s, perversely, accepted as fact. Ironically, The Big Lie is also associated with Goebbels. I know, I know…the nazi comparisons are supposed to be taboo and beyond the pale. But if the foo shits…

You can’t negotiate with hostage takers.
Jan. 31st, 2012 at 10:34 am
exactly. I thought we didn’t negotiate with terrorists like West.

Makes no sense to me that Republicans are on the “right” side of the political aisle, and Democrats on the “left”, when the I.Q.s of Tea Party politicians appear to largely fall on the left half of the Bell Curve.

His remarks so so full of venom and intolerance for different views that they are completely over the top. As a black man, he apparently needs to be reminded that while the GOP once stood for the rights of blacks and the Democrat Party once did not, the parties have reversed roles over time. The people he is casting his lot with couldn’t care less about him, but just see him as a token in order to prove they are not “racists.” Apparently, it has escaped him that plenty of white folks are also faring badly thanks to the failed policies of his own party.
I also remember him making the stupid remark that he is the “modern day Harriet Tubman” to lead black folks from the “Democratic plantation.” That just proves he is a hate-filled, self-important blowhard who doesn’t deserve any more respect than Herman Cain and is also an avid carrier of water for folks who would drown him while thinking nothing of it.

CREDO has formed a superpac to go after the ten most onerous Tea Party representatives. West and Walsh head the targeted list.

Typical Republican “I’ve got mine; you can starve for all I care!” attitude. I’ve encountered or heard of people like him… he “made it” and refuses to acknowledge the help he got to do so.
He also seems to be the type that refuses to see the barriers this culture puts in front of others why try to make it, but who don’t fully assimilate.

Alan West should be run out of town and the US.

…”But what’s important here is the continuing message of disenfranchisement, a card played more and more often by Republicans…”
Of course. Disenfranchisement is so fundamental evangelical! It is at their core; fundamentalist evangelicals are the “outsiders” who actually wear a badge of honor that they thumb their noses at all other systems (other religions, governments). Why? Because they are “insiders” with da’lard. They have a strangle hold on republicans who are beholden to this “insiders are outsiders” game that permeates it’s base.
Fundamentalist know it all with certainty! They are flummoxed at the fact that no one wants to listen to their message of hate through a better Christ which they are trying to invent. That is why people like Mr. West are attempting to beat the drum of secession, deportation, “just get the hell out” of American if you aren’t one of “us”; he’s scared.
West knows that if radicalization from the far right doesn’t pan out, like his masters have told him it would, he’s on the voters chopping block…he’ll be the one who has to pack his bags and go…

They tell me to go back where I came from all the time, but my mother’s dead and I wouldn’t fit anyway.
I think we found Strom Thurmans missing love child.

West is a life-long military man and came from a military family. That MIGHT explain some of rigid right-wing bent. His father served in WWII which is somewhat of an enigma as the army his dad served in was segregated. I’m sure West knows this. Wonder what he thinks? That’s the conundrum I have when I see people like him and Herman Cain. I don’t understand how they think.
