Crazed Tea Partier Allen West Tells American Troops Not To Follow President Obama’s Orders

Allen West Facebook

Former one-term Republican Congressman and current Fox News conservative pundit Allen West demanded that the military not follow orders from its commander-in-chief. On Friday morning, West wrote on his Facebook page that President Obama has ordered the military to enlist “illegal aliens.” He then claimed that, since Obama cannot make laws regarding naturalization, the order he signed is illegal, and those serving in the military shouldn’t follow it. West then complained about Obama’s tyranny and said all Democrats who support Obama need to be voted out.

Below is West’s entire Facebook post:

Morning folks. While you were sleeping, Barack Hussein Obama took out his pen and ordered our Military to enlist illegal aliens. In other words, this charlatan has allowed those who have disrespected our Constitution and are not citizens to take an oath to support and defend the very document, our rule of law, of which they are in violation. Obama has no constitutional authority to make any laws or rules concerning naturalization as stated in Art I Sect 8 Clause 4. This is an illegal order and should not be followed by our Military. As well, we are pink-slipping men and women in uniform, Americans, and Obama wants to enlist illegals. We are already outsourcing our national security to Syrian Islamists. This is intolerable and just another reason why we must flip the Senate and begin to reverse Obama’s tyranny. Any Democrat supporting this illegal order needs to be voted out!

Apparently, West is upset over news that the military is expanding its Military Accessions Vital to National Interest program to include those that are eligible for the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals. DACA was approved by Obama in 2012 and allows immigrants without legal status, who were brought to this country before the age of 16 and meet certain other requirements, to have the threat of deportation reprieved for two years. Currently, applications for reprieve under DACA can be renewed after the two-year period is up. The Department of Homeland Security approves DACA applications and a thorough background check is done.

MAVNI has a cap of 1,500 recruits a year. Previously, the program targeted foreign nationals who were in the country legally, but weren’t citizens. It even allowed for non-permanent residents, such as students and tourists, to enlist in the military. The program targets specific skillsets, generally fluency in certain foreign languages or possessing specialized health care knowledge. Basically, they are always on the lookout for people who are doctors or can speak a language where American troops might be stationed. With America getting involved in another open-end conflict in the Middle East, it seems likely that the military is looking for more people who are fluent in Arabic and Kurdish, among others.

Of course, West (who always seems to refer to the president as Barack Hussein Obama or B. Hussein) has never met a POTUS conspiracy theory he hasn’t liked and embraced. In his mind, West probably sees this as a way for Obama to sneak Islamist terrorists and other non-Americans into the military, all in an effort to undermine the United States and bring rise to the New World Order. He has constantly referred to Obama as an Islamist sympathizer and infers that Obama is not American. In fact, after he made his post telling our military to defy the commander-in-chief, West made the following post, claiming POTUS is, you guessed it, an Islamist sympathizer.



Prior to the Islamist post, West tried to kiss up to Hispanics, despite his consistently offensive rhetoric towards immigration reform and recent post whining about ‘illegal aliens,’ by acknowledging Hispanic Heritage Month.



Here’s the thing. The vast majority of sane people in this country know West is completely nuts and off his rocker. However, the fact is there are a lot of people that buy his bunk and share it on social media. His post telling our military to ignore the orders of the President of the United States has been shared nearly 50,000 times from his Facebook page as of Friday afternoon, with an additional 44,000+ likes and nearly 10,000 comments. His page has well over a million likes. Even if he is certifiable, he is reaching a lot of people and making an impression with them.

With the way social media is, crazy statements like his will travel far and wide and be hard to tamper down. Therefore, it is important that people like West, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh have their incorrect and/or offensive statements highlighted, fact-checked and ridiculed. Especially when they say something treasonous, which is exactly what West did on Friday.

  1. And the word for this is… oh, right, “treason”. Can we get a drone by this guy’s house? Soon?

    Also, the very fact he looks like Ernie and Bert’s lovechild makes taking him seriously even more difficult than his rhetoric.

  2. Thanks for that. I knew he’d left the military under less than favorable conditions. It appears that this is the new definition of ‘patriot’, as embraced by the GOTP.

  3. The viewers of Fox are ignorant fools! How would West know what President Obama has planned? He is not a part of the Administration’s, therefore he does not have access to information.

  4. He is not the only one suggesting something like this. From an actual sitting congressman:

    “But that is exactly what Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) told a group of voters he wants to see happen, the Colorado Independent reported.

    “A lot of us are talking to the generals behind the scenes, saying, ‘Hey, if you disagree with the policy that the White House has given you, let’s have a resignation,'” Lamborn said Tuesday…”

    At what point does urging military members to defy the Commander-in-Chief in time of war become seditious or traitorous (especially from an elected official)? How many urging this in a short time frame does it take to charge them with conspiracy?

  5. He wants military members to face court martial and possible dishonorable discharge just like he did? This guy is beyond nuts.

  6. Anyone else notice that this valued voters thing has all the crazies there, like Cruz, Palin and West, not a sane individual among them!

  7. Allen West is what was called in the old days a “House Nigger”. He waited on the masters hand and foot. He slept in the masters house, he ate the food from the masters table that he did not want. Allen and his kind informed on the other slaves, all to keep his spot.

  8. I had the displeasure of serving with Allen West, my FA battalion was the “sister” battalion …. this guy was the worse kind of narcissist, and a commander who led, if you can call it that, through intimidation and veiled threats. I would not have lost a minute of sleep if he was one of the men hit by an IED. As far as his claim of no ambushes while he was in command one has to take that with a grain of salt because up until Aug/Sep the Iraqi people were not resisting, and the insurgency hadn’t really taken hold, in Aug/Sep the ambush attacks really started in earnest, and Taji was hit hard due to it’s proximity to Baghdad, so his unit, an FA Battalion was charged with securing an area, which they weren’t trained for, and ill equipped to do, but because he wanted to have a command in combat he jumped at the opportunity, and his soldiers paid for it, then he gets all up in arms and does his notorious interrogation. This guy’s a loser and which is about right for Fox, hire all the…

  9. I second that emotion, Joseph. Encouraging our military to ignore the orders of their Commander in Chief borders on treason and is very dangerous. There are teabaggers in the military who consider Allen West their Knight in Shining Armor and may try to take him up on his call to mutiny against our Commander in Chief.

  10. This asshole didn’t follow orders, either. That’s why he was court martialed for torture and then allowed to resign in lieu of being dishonorably discharged. So what else would you expect from a psychopathic egoist like this mental case?

  11. And the mofo’s who agree with him are probably the same A.H. who voted for Romney,sick azz Teathugs and don’t underestimate there are millions of damn fools out there in RethugliKKKan land.

  12. When did being a traitor to the United States of America become fashionable? Politically correct? And legal?

  13. Allen West is a certified Psycho. It’s time for somebody or the government to put him in a straightjacket and REMOVE him from the public’s eye. His freedom of speech in this country is guaranteed, but he is abusing it with his loco, psycho talk. He is poisoning the weaker minds out there, and you know, that there are people who act and talk like this crazy dude. What does he have against OBAMA? !!!!!! What’s his beef? It tells me, that in a bygone era, he would have been the perfect House… you know what. Yes! It is apparently in his roots. Talk for the Massah, and get an extra piece of bread in the morning with your tea. Allen West is an embarrasment to Black people. I know that engaging in honorable disagreements is a given, but this fool has taken it to outrageous limits. His rhetoric is outlandish and bordering on mental sickness. No wonder he was booted out as a one time Congressman from Florida. The folks down there saw that this dude (Yes, dude)was toxic.

  14. Nefer, these conservative rethugs want Pres. Obama to fail so bad they, are willing to commit treason to accomplish their goals. All should face the fact they, are guilty and be charged of treason. I fear tho- none will ever be called on to answer for their treason.

  15. As one who took the oath when I joined the military, I agree to take orders from the president, and under article 90 or 92 I could be charged with a crime if not. This un-American should be charged with SEDITION which is an “overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition”.

  16. Diane: On spot with your characterization of that fool> House Nigah! I have been posting and alluding to this for the past two and a half years ever since that piece of Dog Doodo became a Congressman from Florida and started to Trash talk Obama …FOR NO REASON! His criticisms always were personal and foolish. They were always directly from the Right Wing Haters memo. Go back and Google Allen West you will see what I’m talking about. Allen West should not walk among Black people for the rest of his life. And, you know what? He knows it, but don’t care. His attitude shows it. Ben Carson is his team mate. You know Ben Carson, right? Okay. Birds of a same feather. Allen West is, in my estimation: Confused and Mentally unstable. Why is he still allowed to give opinions in the media? Well, if they allow Sara Palin, I guess why not him too…they are both comical figures, used for comic relief. His self esteem should tell him–Hey, you ain’t NOTHING!!!!! STFU and go away!

  17. BTW Diane I posted something here about 45 minutes ago….go find it, you will see what I alluded to on the same theme. “THOMAS P-51 FLY BY”. Tell me what you think. Ok?

  18. Treason is a uniquely republican trait. They have no love of country or patriotism. Investigating and charging Allen West with treason would be a great last hoorah for Eric Holder.

  19. PTALLEN: I am an former MARINE, Viet-Nam Era. And let me tell you…an Ass Hole officer like Allen West would NOT be an inspiring leader. His sorry ass would have been shoved out of any unit he commanded, but for being a Jack-ass that no one of my Marines would have had respect for, inspite of the stupid, reckless Rambo shit he seemed to think was the way to go. Marines are FOR REAL! This guy seemed PHONY. Reckless and Psychotic.He would have NOT passed muster and probably would have been given a “NO confidence” vote, then….removed to the rear. Out of the battle area. Today, he got a taste of that when the folks in Florida kicked him to the curb and did not re-elect his crazy arse. Why is he still mouthing off his crazy chit? Who knows…maybe people love a good laugh now and then.

  20. non only is allen west an embarrassment to black folks, he is an embarrassment to all americans everywhere. these people like him are so full of hate, rage, and blinding anger, it is scary. what is wrong with these people??? Obama is not perfect- we all get that. but the endless vitriol and hatred is so beyond the norm. no wonder people think race has something to do with it. cause it does!!! that’s the only thing to explain most of the unbelievable hate that comes from righties. we have one chance to fix this problem. that chance is on November 4th. these races are gonna be tight, every single democratic vote helps! YOUR vote is extremely important, and unlike in the past, can make a difference this time around. 39 days until November 4th. get ready now!!!

  21. Navyveteran: Now do you see why those Iraqi soldiers give up and run from the fight—against ISIL? It’s because they probably have ass-hole leaders like this Psycho Allen WEST. This attitude he preaches: To not follow the leaders of the State is not what an officer is supposed to project or demand. He, Allen West, is what I call a provocateur Rebel, Insurgent MFer. Imagine he has the gall to call out to Military men to disobey the Commander-In-Chief! He should be put in Jail, or better yet….tied against a post, given a last cigarette, blindfolded and…….Well, use your imagination. ;)

  22. There is another republican who is calling for generals to resign rather than take orders from the president, he apparently wants to destabilize the Obama operations in Iraq & Syria – is this not treason?

  23. His name is Doug Lamborn of Colorado
    “A lot of us are talking to the generals behind the scenes, saying, ‘Hey, if you disagree with the policy that the White House has given you, let’s have a resignation,’” Lamborn said Tuesday, adding that if generals resigned en masse in protest of President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, they would “go out in a blaze of glory.”

    Lamborn, it should be noted, is a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

  24. I agree! I certainly think the FBI needs to investigate this and charges pursued. Regardless of party in power, one should not go around telling the men and women in the military to disobey, for it will be THEM charged with disobeying orders and going to prison, and one should at least go about things the right way. Having our men and women disobey the orders we took when sworn in, is NOT the answer. This man needs to walk the plank, over deep deep shark infested waters.

  25. As I said before….and I will say it again. Allen West is a certified NUT JOB. What is in his mind is obvious—Nothing, garbage, quirky shit. He gets away with it on the media. Why? Extreme individuals who talk bunk seem to garner the attention of the media. Why? What the nut jobs say and do is like watching an accident. Can’t ignore it, even though we don’t like what we see or hear.

  26. My message to Allen West: STFU!
    You are ignorant and psychotic. Get Help (Not), then move into a Black Neighborhood..If you dare. A-Hole. You are the Worst example of a so called Black Republican. A Collin Powell, you are not! Style with substance. ( But, I question Colin Powell’s allegiance to the Republican Party.) Why? Collin you are being used and laughed at. Get out. change over to the Democrat’s thinking {{{{silence}}} Oh well…{Sigh}.

  27. West is jealous of Pres. Obama because Pres. Obama has reached the highest level of success in the nation, which is something West can only dream about. He knows he doesn’t have the intelligence, selflessness, work ethic, and sterling character that Pres. Obama has. These traits make the prez uniquely suited to serve as POTUS. I recall a few days ago that GOPTPers were saying that “no nations would join a U.S.-led coalition to defeat ISIS.” They’re mighty quiet of late because France, Denmark, and England have joined it this week. Though Iran hasn’t joined the coalition, it is sending tanks, soldiers and equipment to Iraq to help in the fight against ISIS. West knows deep inside of himself that he’ll never be an internationally well-liked, caring individual like Pres. Obama, and it’s eating him alive. If any of these tools think they’re harming the prez, they need to think again. One doesn’t grow up at a disadvantage in America and NOT learn how to deal with nutty detractors.

  28. Urging the Armed forces to ignore the Commander-In-Chief’s orders is treasonous talk, and Allen West should be put on the FBI’s WATCH LIST. I don’t trust that that guy to get ANYWHERE where The President is. He sounds crazy enough to strap a suicide vest on and approach the President with outreached hands. You know what I mean. His kind of talk is akin to an ISIL fighter. Think about that. Which American talks that kind of Shit, even if you HATE our President, for whatever misguided partisan reason. I say…watch this Ass-Hole. Tap his phones and follow him allover. Do the same to Ted Cruz AND MICHELLE BACHMANN…Just listen to their rhetoric. Frightful. Fence Jumpers? I say, ban them from the White House tours, or getting anywhere near the President. I get the feeling that these types will do something…. If you get my drift. I am listening to that crazy woman Bachmann right now…scary stuff she is talking {{shudder}}. Today 9-26-14 go to the tapes,listen to the tapes.

  29. I think Allen West just stepped over the line. And I think the FBI should consider him a threat to our national security. Calling for the military to ignore orders from the Commander-In-Chief is from my perspective: TREASONOUS. And at best, provocateurist. Where is his mindset? With the seccenionists? Homegrown Militants? Yes. Watch that dude. I don’t like him. Period. And watch all of those who accept his thinking. {{{ISIL in America, in disguise. Watch him!}}}

  30. West was forced to resign from the Army to avoid being court martialed. He had tortured a prisoner.

    What a great American.

  31. The best thing to do here is to just ‘let it go’

    He wants to make a big deal over something he perceives as an issue, fine. Doesn’t mean that anyone else should. Let him stew in his anger because he’s a sore loser. Ever since he lost in Florida, he’s been on the warpath on just about every conspiracy theory there is out there.

  32. Does the name Oliver North sound familiar? Embracing disgraced ex Lt. Colonels seems to be perfectly acceptable to the GOP.

    Colin Powell fell completely out of favor with the GOP simply because he supported a Democrat… I guess it was his rank and outstanding military record that disqualified him from the “can do no wrong” exception.

  33. Maybe the two of them can get adjoining cells. They can spend the rest of their miserable lives creating their own conspiracy theories and lamenting how they’re so misunderstood.

  34. This niggah is crazy. He proves my theory that black and white are “knot-races.” They are states of mind. As we judge this man by the content of his character, the color of his skin gets “whited-out.”

  35. I’m a black man. I wondered if anybody told West that the Emancipation Proclamation was signed, so he stop his BS. The Tea Party is using him and he’s to stupid to realize it. He was a black man yesterday, he’s a black man today and will be a black man tomorrow. As long as he stay’s in his place he will be welcomed. He tries so hard to make people think he is somebody, when in reality he’s absolutely nothing. His military career proves that.

  36. Isn’t this inciting mutiny among the military ranks against their Commander in Chief?

    18 U.S. Code § 2383 – Rebellion or insurrection

    Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

  37. If I was the DOJ or the President I wouldn’t do anything till after the election. Then I would lower the BOOM on the congressman and Mr. Clayton Bigsby

  38. That would be an excellent strategy, whether Democrats hold the Senate (which I believe they will) or in the unlikely case where Republicans take control of the Senate.

    Either way, AG Holder and the president should bring down the hammer after the elections – for the fullest and hardest effect.

  39. West is too clever by half. I’m certain that if some psychiatrist tested him, he’d prove to have some sort of twisted mental instability in there that allows him to choose profit over people, but it’s all about the “Benjamins” to types like Piyush Jindal, Cain, Allen West, Doctor Carson, etc.

    They’re not certifiably stupid. Willfully ignorant? Yes, definitely. Certifiably stupid? Absolutely not.They know darn well what they’re doing.

    They believe being a big fish in a small pond (a minority in the GOP) is more profitable than being a small fish in a big pond (a PoC in the Democratic Party), and they’re capitalizing on it.

  40. I’m black and I’m not ashamed to say that Allen West along with Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Vernon Robinson, Artur Davis,and Jesse Lee Paterson are an embarrassment to the black community.

  41. I wouldn’t go that far (anti-death penalty here), but I would love to see him publicly humiliated, arrested, convicted for violation of the 18 U.S. Code § 2383 – Rebellion or insurrection:

    Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

  42. this asshat made colonel? really? does the army have an uncle-tom-accellerated-officer program or something? i’m ex-navy and gave the other services a hard time when i was in, but i thought they were better than this. /guy

  43. WorSe part is these idiots still receive their pensions and benefits. Start talking away benefits from those who speak against disobey or overthrowing the Pres. They aren’t worth the paper the amount is printed on.

  44. What West and his GOP cronies are doing is actually against the law (see title 18 US Code § 2387) and if convicted could net each of them up to ten years in federal prison coupled with a hefty fine. They would also be banned from all government work for five years.

    Personally, I say convict them all and stick ’em behind bars where they belong.

  45. Absolutely right, last thing we need is to have another persecuted RWNJ like poor poor convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza

  46. Uninformed hypocrites!

    “In the Iraq war, citizenship is being used as a recruiting tool aimed specifically at young immigrants, who are told that by enlisting, they will be able to quickly get citizenship for themselves (sometimes true, depending on what the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) branch of the Department of Homeland Security finds) and their entire families (not true; each family member has to go through a separate application process). Nevertheless, with the political pressures on Latino families growing daily under this administration, many young Latinos are unable to resist the offer, which immigrants’ rights activists see as blatant exploitation of a vulnerable population”.

  47. This has been done since WW1. Your point? Bush allowed illegals gladly. Drop the crap about this administration and stop making a spectacle of yourself

  48. 18 U.S.C.§ 2387 violates the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution and is therefore unenforceable. Free speech is free speech, regardless of whether or not you agree with the topic of the speech. Millions of hippies back in the 60s and 70s are proof that the government cannot enforce this statute.

  49. Open his arm service record!! Then all will see what type of ex- officer would call for mutiny. Just the type of criminal the repubs love to love.

  50. He is a traitor and ought to be treated the way that traitors ARE treated.

    He disgusted me no end when he was in Congress and now, like Palin, needs to shut the hell up.

  51. Treason is an act punishable by death, isn’t it? Maybe it’s time to start calling for strict enforcment of treason and sedition laws. We could do without a number of these jingoistic a-holes.

  52. Doug Lamborn Of Colorado should also be on that list. he is a member of the Armed Services Committee and is encouraging sitting Generals to commit sedition.
    I have sent letters to all my elected officials, asking for investigations at the very least. Wonder what Issa will do if he is demanded to do this?
    Don’t believe Issa should be allowed to do these investigations, would be a circus for rethugs to enjoy.

  53. I am former USN, and imo illegal aliens have no business in the US military. They have already broken US law just by being here.

  54. He is suggesting MUTINY. Isn’t he? Or some form of it. The FBI should pay this A-Hole a visit and he must be REMOVED from his seat on that committee. Fortwith!

  55. In my opinion any of you who disagree with Mr. West is not to be rude but ignorant. What he wants is what a normal person should want. Democrat or Republican doesn’t matter, all that matters is the result. If your a normal good hearted person you want peace and to feel safe and to fight for what is right. So if you think differently from him then I feel you are more likely to make things worse so do mankind a favor and not vote and vote in the wrong person like you probably did the last 2 times. Thanks
