Allen West to FAU Students: This Is Your Final Warning
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 4/17/2013

Posted on 04/17/2013 6:31:53 PM PDT by markomalley

Former congressman Allen West (R., Fla.) posted a message on Facebook Wednesday warning a group of students from Florida Atlantic University that if they continue to harass his wife “you will face me.”

“The students from Florida Atlantic University who have gone to my wife’s office, stalked her at the FAU Board of Trustee meetings, and sent letters to her company headquarters, end it now,” West wrote in his message, posted at 11:21 a.m. “This is not a threat, it is a promise that if Angela calls and tells me of one more incident, you will face me, the side of me that you do not want to see.”

West, a former Army lieutenant colonel, retired from the U.S. Army in 2004 following a controversy over methods used during an interrogation of an Iraqi detainee.

West informed the students that he understood why he, a public figure, is the subject of smear tactics originated by the late Chicago activist Saul Alinsky.

However, he added, “My wife Angela is an American citizen and if you believe that you can intimidate her to surrender her freedoms you are mistaken.”

“This is your one and only advisory notice,” he said.

More than 9,000 people have liked Col. West’s post at this writing.

Col West's post:
I completely understand the Alinsky tactics and have no issue with the insidious and incessant personal attacks by the left against me. However, I am warning you, end your harassment of my wife Angela. The students from Florida Atlantic University who have gone to my wife's office, stalked her at the FAU Board of Trustee meetings, and sent letters to her company headquarters, end it now. This is not a threat, it is a promise that if Angela calls and tells me of one more incident, you will face me, the side of me that you do not want to see. My wife Angela is an American citizen and if you believe that you can intimidate her to surrender her freedoms you are mistaken. Those left wing groups and lawyers associated with these individuals supporting their antics, I recommend you disassociate yourself. How dare you animals attack my wife and her professional reputation. This is your one and only advisory notice.

Talk about a REAL "pressure cooker" about to explode and some people to suffer badly due to it.

They best be advised to climb down ASAP.

I would take the Lt. Col's statements with the utmost of prudence, were I one of the campus lowlifes causing these disturbances.

I tend to concur.

Provocation is one of the left’s oldest tactics; if you fall for their bait and lay a finger on one of them, all of a sudden they become the victim and we become the bully.

By the time he bails himself out of jail and pays a team of lawyers to fend off the endless barrage of lawsuits that will be piled on (look what they did to PALIN) he will be too broke and discredited to ever run for any office again - and that’s probably the whole idea.

It probably cost the establishment Republicrats and Demicans a lot to cheat him out of Congress, and they are determined to keep him out.

Families of opposition are always fair game to the Marxists - just like they are to the Muslims, who allegedly forced Cain to drop out of the primaries by threatening his grand children after he stated that he would not appoint a Muslim to a cabinet position.

I guess the SS who were assigned to him after several preceding credible threats advised him that they would probably follow through if he didn’t comply.

If you’re not familiar with what Muslims will do to your kids, then review BESLAN.

Col. WEST knows Islam well; probably better than most Americans do. That’s likely another reason why the regime wants to keep him out.

Right now Islam and communism are working together like a tag team; look how Obama has infiltrated the whole government with his Muslim Brotherhood chums.
Have you noticed how Iran and No. Korea have been playing off of each other?

These people don’t usually win by their own superior merits; they’d much rather destroy their opposition and anyone else who gets in their way.

Allan WEST may represent a lingering political threat to this regime, and is almost surely targeted for elimination... one way or another.

Hopefully he has a loyal cadre of capable Veterans - perhaps former members of his command - helping to watch his - and his loved one’s - six.

As of 1:30 AM, "You and 27,773 others like this".

LTC West has a lot of very dedicated friends.

Which would most likely result in a felony conviction. Better that the perpetrators should have "accidents".

IIRC, if a protester swings at West, grabs him or otherwise initiates bodily contact, his fists legally become defensive weapons.

Bear in mind that as a Conservative, West would be considered guilty (at least in the enemedia if not the courts) until proven innocent.

It might be the macho thing to do and would be applauded by his fans, but would more likely than not be politically and strategically counter productive.

He probably has some Brothers in Arms with experience in making the darkness reach out and touch an enemy is special ways however. Some might even initiate corrective measures without even being asked to, should the need arise.

Sometimes if one goes messing with a man and his family, it might be prudent to consider not only who one is messing with... but who their friends are as well.

The Col., it seems, still has lots of friends - many of whom I would not want to get on the wrong side of.

OK, I dig what you’re saying, except.....

If the viral vids are of a black guy punching some pasty-faced attitude-challenged white geek, how does the MSM come charging in to denounce this heinous act?

Unless...”It’s ‘cause the white kid’s gay!!!”
