Allen West: President Obama Wants Americans To 'Be His Slave'...

 

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: 07/02/2012 2:36 pm Updated: 07/03/2012 12:57 pm

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) can't seem to stay out of the spotlight, for better or for worse.

During a Sunday rally with constituents in a newly drawn district he wants to represent, West accused President Barack Obama of wanting to enslave the American public.

"He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American," West said, according to a WPTV report. "He'd rather you be his slave."

West is running against Martin County Sheriff Bob Crowder in the Republican primary, set for Aug. 14. The WPTV report quotes Crowder saying he is "offended" by the things that come out of West's mouth.

"I think trying to label some people that he would have to work with in Congress as being Communists ... I just think that's the wrong thing to do," Crowder said.

West raised some eyebrows in April when he claimed as many as 80 House Democrats are Communists. His remarks came after he compared being gay to picking a favorite ice cream flavor, said that a motorcycle was like touching his wife, and warned that people would be on "a suicide mission" if they challenged his support for the House GOP budget plan.

About 30 protesters showed up at West's Sunday event and said they wished he had stayed in his old district instead of moving to theirs. Congressional redistricting left West more vulnerable in his current seat in District 22, so he recently moved to what is now District 18, where he has a better shot at winning.

Despite hugely out-raising Crowder, West still faces a tough fight: A prominent national pundit on Monday ranked West as the most vulnerable member in the Florida delegation to lose to the other party. His Democratic challenger is Patrick Murphy.

This man makes it harder and harder for m to respect him...im sorry

I don't understand how anyone can take Allen West seriously.  Once a person like that gets a little noteriety they usually go off the deep end to keep the fame.

Yes, well .. Black men are not allowed to stray from the fold, are they?   Why, of course, he must be stupid, crazy, and controlled by white people, because black folks are just too damn dumb to think for themselves, right?

What's ironic is that in both instances, democrats think black people are idiots.  To a democrat, blacks are so incompetent that they cannot even manage to aquire a photo id!  That's just too hard for them!  They can't get a job on their merits.  That's just too hard!  They can't be expected to get good grades to get into school.  They can't do that!  Too hard!  But if they don't drink the democrat kool aid?  Well, they are stupid, too!  So the democrat position is that ALL black people are stupid.  Stupid victims if they are dems and stupid crazies if they are Rep.

Why?  Because he is not afraid to speak the truth?  I see nothing wrong with what he has said...  You don't see that more and more regulations, higher and higher deficits, a higher debt ceiling every few months are all making us slaves?  We will NEVER be free of this debt if things continue the way they are.  And I'm sorry, but having rules for every single aspect of my life, fees and fines wherever I turn, doesn't make me feel very free, kwim?

West wouldn't know the truth if it ran up on him and screwed him from behind... The man is an asshole, an ignorant one at that...

That the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are communists?

This must be some definition of the word "truth" that I was previously unaware of.

Those black republicans and/or conservatives that will not drink the kool aid.."shudders"..  I'm thinking more are going to speak up as they see what's going on with Obama.. Look at the dems that are starting to distance themselves from the Obama campaign... Yea..people are starting to see a pattern here..

Consider the source there, ima. What can you expect. I agree with Allen all the way. He hit the nail on the head, and the minions can't stand that. Like they say, truth is the new hate speech. Sad to say, but it's true. I have great respect for Allen, and will support him all the way.
