Fox News’ Allen West Tells Sean Hannity That Obama Is To Blame For Ft. Hood Shooting

Heartbreaking news came out on Wednesday afternoon as a mass shooting occurred at Ft. Jood, TX. Three people were killed by the shooter, and an additional 16 were injured. The shooter, Spc. Ivan Lopez, also ended his own life after the rampage. This tragedy brought up awful memories of a similar incident at Ft. Hood in 2009, when Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people and injured 32 others during a mass shooting. He has since received the death penalty.

I guess it was only a matter of time before some conservative pundit found a way to somehow blame President Obama for this tragedy. It didn’t take long at all. Fox News contributor Allen West, the former one-term Republican Congressman out of Florida, was on Hannity Wednesday night to discuss the shooting, as it was the top news story of the day.

Sean Hannity set West up nicely by strongly hinting that this shooting was the result of terrorism by questioning if we have moved too far away from 9/11. Essentially, Hannity wondered why we aren’t living in a constant level of fear, feeling that everyone is a potential terrorist, especially if that person is an ‘other.’ West took the ball and ran with it.

As you can see, West said we have a civilian leadership that refuses to acknowledge and admit we have certain enemies. He then, inexplicably, points to Crimea and how President Obama stated that Vladimir Putin is working from a position of weakness. West then states that this proves that our country does not have the right security protocols in place. Umm, WHAT?!?!

Seriously, this was some crazy jumbled logic that would make Sarah Palin proud. First, Hannity takes the plunge by suggesting that we aren’t afraid of terrorism enough and need to have a more paranoid outlook. West then takes his queue and, feeling that Hannity wants someone to blame Obama for all of this, pulls out the Obama blame card and smacks it on the table. This felt more like a Saturday Night Live skit than an actual discussion on a supposedly ‘serious’ program.

I guess with all of the good news surrounding the Affordable Care Act lately, conservatives have to try a new tactic to hurt the President’s image. I doubt that West will be the last one to attempt to blame this tragedy on Obama.

  1. allen west, REALLY? let me explain something to you! your MASSA’s couldn’t save you from getting the boot in Florida and even a dim wit like yourself gotta know klannity doesn’t want you any closer than 5ft from him! You’re a disgusting piece of $HIT! you and YOUR BOY clarence will forever be correcting identified as the biggest BLACK TOKENS SWINE in modern day history!

  2. I’m not surprised very soon they’ll try and link it to Benghazi, they blame him for everything, i wish one day President Obama comes out into the Rose Garden and declares that oxygen is critical to our survival and i hope the Republicans try to prove him wrong.

  3. Faux news should be on Comedy Central. I am surprised they haven’t blamed Obama for the earthquake in South America yet. I am sure they can find a way to tie him in to it. Of course you won’t hear anything from the NRA for awhile. By the way it was the repugnant party that decided extra funding should be cut for veterans mental health programs.

  4. Allen West is one person that really, really needs mental health, he’s as crazy as a gang of kids in a candy store or he has to many bats in the belfry aka batsh#t crazy. My apologies to kids and also vsmpire bats. The military screwdriver up, they should have slapped him in jail for life.

  5. Allen West is too predictable. I knew he would have a say after this tragic event. Of course, he doesn’t feel bad for the victims. Instead, he hurl the volley of insults and whining directly toward President Obama. West got voted out by his district after merely one term because constituents of that district has gotten enough with West being drama queen.

  6. Earthquakes are the province of the Radical Gay Agenda {GENDA, Genda, genda…} Tremble in awe of our omnipotence!

    So, they’ll probably go ahead and blame that quake on the President anyway.

  7. Ironic that Congress, what he served, cut mental health funding. So rather than blame the President, blame the purse string holder. Of course, they can never take responsibility for any action they caused. No blame the President again.

    Sean Hannity is behaving like weak willed drama queen. Does he want to crouch behind Vlad Putin, so he can protect this talking head, paranoid, drama queen.

  8. So, the President is behind one man who had extreme mental issues (The shooter had PTSD) and shot up Fort Hood.

    Right… logic is not a strong point for Republicans.

  9. Allen West is a sad, sad man that has nothing going for him other than hate. Why is anyone listening to a word he says.

  10. Is is endemic of a bigger problem. Veterans benefits have been cut, their food stamps have been cut, housing has been cut. The shooter had PTSD. With the additional stress of being cut off with no support, I hate to say this kind of incident is becoming commonplace. How much more degraded by the GOP and their useful idiots must the American public become before enough is enough?

  11. This guy want so badly to like by “white conservatives”… that he will say anything
    he thing a racist would love to hear. This guy is the clown that the Teabaggers push out on stage to keep the show going…

  12. I agree Astorix, it is part of a larger problem. The entire military is also to blame. When I was in the Marine Corp they so thoroughly brain washed me into their philosophies that I would have followed any order to the death and beyond. When your enlistment is over there is no counseling or deprogramming. It’s just good bye and that’s it, your on your way. Self reporting of any PTSD etc. is not actively encouraged.

  13. Face/Palm…Sigh! The mental gymnastics that these twits perform are mind boggling. Allen West is quite frankly a mental midget,I would ask how someone like him could ever get elected but the Reich Wing has a habit of electing the lowest common denominator.

  14. I think that Alan West belongs to the Westboro Baptist Church and now that Phelps is dead….. West could move right in there. well played Mr. West

  15. Are you serious? That SOB is just like Dr Ben Carson, “JEALOUS”. It’s Black Americans like those two (among others)that help keeps the bigots alive and well in this country! It’s shameful that they can go on TV and down their own race. I don’t remember seeing so many blacks on TV than when President Obama was running for president because they were only being used (Uncle Tom)by there ‘MASTER’ to humiliate the president. WAKE UP ALAN WEST, NO ONE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK OR SAY. AND AS FOR YOU BEN CARSON, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. NO BLACKS ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR YOU. YOU ARE A “JOKE”!

  16. Allen West should be the poster boy for why NO CUTS should be allowed on mental health. It’s a wonder if he didn’t do that song and dance for Hannity in black face. Disgusting!

  17. It is unbelieveable how one man can be hated by so many people for no reason even before he even took office and he didn’t strike back at them. Republicans meet in a basement and plotted on how they going to get rid of the first biracial president elected to make him a one term president anyway they can. Made a vow not to work with him at all, not to get along with him, hoping that if this work he would resign and they would be happy and the status would be in tact. But everything they tried to do failed and it just made the president stronger and made them weaker. Most all of these men who were in the basement on that night have felled by the wayside and the president is standing taller. He have stumble along the way but he got up and kept right on going, the next miniorty president won’t have it so hard because they will be a true AA. It seems the white race keep forgetting that the president comes from a mix race but his skin is black and that is what they hate.

  18. NO! Stop it! You’re making too much sense! They don’t care about FACTS! You have to exaggerate, make things bigger & more complicated than they really are! Their mission is to blame anything bad on Obama! So get this right, this was a terrorist act, & Obama has weakened our Military & our defense against terrorism! And he can control individual like robots! This was NOT a soldier with PTSD that had some personal issues & got into an argument with someone, then lost it!

  19. GWB said yesterday we should remove the “D” from “PTSD” because the word disorder may make some of those with the problem think there is something wrong with themselves. I think Allen West is GWB’ illegitimate son.

  20. So, Mr. West, if you are so savvy about this going to happen, what were you doing on that day to prevent it from happening?

  21. Here is his musing on Black History Month;
    “In light of this month being Black History Month, I feel no way involved with this negro celebration of half accomplishments and borderline Communist agendas. View the list of these “fearless” leaders of black America. Black inhabitants of America knew their place at the table, and knew they could not eat off the same plate of the more than welcoming white men and women of the time. These men, I use that term lightly, like Malcolm X pushed themselves into the homes of innocent white Americans. This action riled up the negro, and scared the living hell out of people. I am no way apart of this community of transported Africans, I myself am an American. I’m a good ol’ boy from the great state of Florida, and a citizen of this great nation.

  22. Continue
    I know God recognizes me as my true self, a proud, strong white man given dark pigmentation. God had to give the blacks at least one intelligent person, so he chose to give me dark skin. I curse my birth as a black man every day. I’m black by birth, not by choice. It will all be sorted out when my name is called, and I step in front of the great white Jesus himself.”
    Allen West to CNN anchor John King

    I have nothing else to say

  23. And Faux Noise, Sean Hannity, Allen West, et all are responsible for the dumbing down of the American public!

  24. I’m still waiting for Sean Hannity to allow himself to be waterboarded on live TV, like he promised he would…
