Rep. Allen West: Obama a 'Low-Level, Socialist Agitator'
FOX Nation ^ | April 21, 2011 | Greta Van Susteren

Posted on 04/22/2011 9:49:48 AM PDT by Kaslin

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Did you hear what Congressman Allen West said? Well, hold onto your seat. He compared President Obama to a dictator. The congressman made those remarks during a recent appearance on "The Laura Ingraham Show." And to be specific, Congressman West said President Obama showed, quote, "third world dictator-like arrogance" during his budget speech. So what did he mean? Let's ask him.

Congressman Allen West of Florida joins us. Good evening, Congressman. Those are pretty tough words for the president. I know you have a lot of passion about your views, but the words -- any -- you want a do-over on that, or you stand by those words?

REP. ALLEN WEST, R-FLA.: Good evening. Happy Easter, Greta. And I do stand by those words. And perhaps one of the things that many people need to understand is that the truth needs to be said. When I go around and I talk to people down here in my district and we get phone calls, that speech that was given last week Wednesday was absolutely beneath the statesmanship or the atmosphere or the aura of the personality that the president should show.

I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist, demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America. It is not helpful for this country and it's not going to move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I'm not going to back away from telling what the truth is.

Ironically, the TPM article on this is much better, with Video, and this memorable quote:

“I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America,” said West.

“It is not helpful for this country, and it’s not gonna move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I am not gonna back away from telling what the truth is.”

There’s a great depth to my conviction, and part of my conviction is telling the truth,” said West.

“I don’t think it’s very presidential when Barack Hussein Obama refers to my colleague, Paul Ryan, as a simple little accountant, either. So I think that when you look at what a community organizer is turning out to be, it does seem to be like a low-level socialist agitator.”

Rep. West is wonderful. I saw him on Greta’s show, and even though she whined at him in that grating voice, he never backed down. We need a whole lot more like him!

I sincerely hope that West, Trump & anyone else who speaks out against Obama in such a direct & truthful way, have some good security around them at all times. You know the Left does not want these words uttered in the media!

Liking what I'm seeing of West, the GOP needs more like him.

Greta doing her best to 'bring it back'; but suspect she knew the content before hand; and making effort to be 'fair'(?). Whatever; loved the fact that West stuck to his guns. . .'it's not passion' Greta. . .it's the truth. . .

Calling it as it is; loved it. West sounds like he is an open candidate in search of an opening. Hope he finds it.

Again; the thrill of hearing the truth; plain spoken; and not cloaked in PC pablum.

We are soooo looking for this - and why Trump is as popular thus far, as he is. Fearless. . .

Speaking out directly and truthfully against Obama, the man, is the only way to bring him down.

Criticizing his policies and the economy is not going to do it because most (50%+) Americans are too stupid to understand. Obama's cult stature has to be demolished!!!

Allen West for President! Not just because of this interview but because he would toss out political correctness overnight and has the courage to confront our enemies and defeat them. He is the man for America and it can’t happen soon enough!

...."third world dictator-like arrogance"....

....I take this to mean....an African dictator.

I have been comparing Zer0 to people like Robert Mugabe and Idi Imin since we found out what an absolute fraud he really is. It is in the genes of the "leaders" who are born in Africa....they are arrogant thieves and thugs....they can't help themselves.

The day that Zer0 was elected, I searched Ebay and found a bumper sticker that said "Don't blame for me, I voted for McCain"...

Its still on my car, and surprisingly, it has not suffered the ravages of time and weather. Its kind of like its being protected in order to spread the message.....not that I was so thrilled with McCain either...

....but wouldn't we love to have McCain in place of Zer0 now!

I guess you figure that extends to freepers as well, given that you needed to tell us that ‘most’ means 50%+.

The thing that pissed me off was I caught this on Greta last night and she berating him for saying it. I thought she was going to accuse him of being a racist, lol.

He was right.

He is just telling the truth.

People like Col. West because he doesn’t mince words and doesn’t talk in emasculated politicospeak.

Obama called my hero, the great Paul Ryan, a “simple little accountant?” Ryan knows more about economics when he’s asleep than Obama ever will. I detest Obama for many reasons; this just adds to them.

VAN SUSTEREN: And I'm in total agreement. I'm just curious whether calling him a low-level socialist agitator or to -- or to compare him -- to use a reference of Reverend Jeremiah Wright that the chickens are coming home to roast...

LOL! Did she really say "coming home to roast" or was that the stupidity of the transcriber?
