Congressman Allen West (R-FL) spoke in West Palm Beach last night where he topped himself with unhinged hatred for his fellow Americans. This time, West said liberals should “get the hell out of the U.S.” Not surprisingly, this caused a bit of a stir among Democrats. So will those America-loving folks at Fox News condemn these comments? You know that if a Democrat ever said any such thing, especially one up for re-election, it would be a 24/7 topic for discussion on Fox. Or will Fox whitewash and defend the remarks the way it did with his offensive rant against Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz? UPDATED
Huffington Post transcribed West’s comments:
“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” West said. “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.”
Following cheers, West added, “Yeah I said ‘hell.’”
I’ll be eagerly awaiting Fox News’ reaction. My bet? They’ll say something like, “He shouldn’t have said it but liberals (fill in the blank for whatever excuse will be trotted out to attack liberals and make it seem as though they deserved what West said).”
UPDATE: Sadly, though not surprisingly, Fox Nation has already given its stamp of approval to West.
UPDATE 2: West is now a paid contributor to Fox News.
MAKE ME, YOU POS!!
West pretty much lost the vote of the people who live in Palm Beach twice- once for how that mentality hurts tourism (even a conservative hates the man who loses him money), and again for that he forgot how many liberals and moderates are there.
Once again- West can be a rockstar all he wants, he’s pretty much lost the vote. He’ll need to pretty much have Broward locked to even have a chance, which isn’t likely if I’m reading the reactions right.
I live clean across the country from his district and I can already hear him losing from here. Let’s talk about his prospects later down the road now…
I fear that you may have overestimated the intelligence and underestimated the racist hatred of those that these types of stunt are intended for. I believe that West did exactly as he intended.
“Colonel West may go down in history as the Paul Revere of his day. His creed is first to fight, and he just may be first to be detained under the NDAA this summer when those aforementioned un-American activists start the riots they have been organizing since last fall.”
My question is just whom has organized these riots and why weren’t we informed? Don’t we get to have any fun anymore?
With a pathetic line up of self serving Brain Dead Clowns for a GOPTard run at POTUS being as dismal as it is I say Bring On The Hate and Fear. It works for me.
The crazy, septuagenarian retirees that live in Florida!
