Skip to comments.Rep. Allen West: Obama a 'Low-Level, Socialist Agitator'
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.

Ha haaa!!! Go West!
I have to echo Beck’s thoughts on this: I love this man.
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.”
A real man, a true hero. I would follow this man anywhere.
Allen West for president 2012.
No one else.
That is all.
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!
Liking what I'm seeing of West, the GOP needs more like him.
Col. West is the answer!!!
Tell it like it is Col!! VERY REFRESHING.
The man speaks the truth.
“A real man, a true hero. I would follow this man anywhere.”
I am with you 100%! He is a true American hero and the kind of leader that this country has to have to survive.
I like his comment that was somewhat like “this is what you get with a community organizer”
What an Uncle Tom! </Jesse Jackson>
As would I.
Simply and perfectly stated.
Allen West is the man!!
Be Ever Vigilant!!
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!
West for President.
Love this guy! Says it, stands by it, doesn’t apologize for it! An extremely rare quality in politicians and I would go as far to say that it’s non existent at this point.
....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!
Criticizing his policies and the economy is not going to do it because most (50%+) Americans are too stupid to understand.
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.
I thought he was a, 'long-legged mack daddy'?
Can he be both?
Yeh Greta tries but the lefty in her just keeps slipping out. I was so glad Allen West did not back down. Its about time someone started describing Obama and his activities for what they are.
simply treating the enemy like a enemy........
not this friend across the isle enableing crappola....
That’s my Rep!!!
Yeah Greta was whining being politically correct and West did not wince he repeated his convictions in statement of Obama.
Ditto! He is truly a brilliant man
Col West will be on LIVE in studio at 2 pm est in 30 minutes at:
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.
I can’t think of what this country needs more than a warrior and/or accountant!
What arrogance shown by B.H. Obama!
West still refuses to address the Eligibility issue, and has attacked Birthers.
Cannot take this seriously when West sides with Obama on the Birther issue
I would like to see the divisive and biased clown we have in the WH try to call THIS guy baised and divisive.
N O T
West is the bomb!!
LOL! Did she really say "coming home to roast" or was that the stupidity of the transcriber?
West will kick him back to Kenya if needed; don’t you worry.
West is the Best!!
West Has Zest!!
Allen West—just another racist tea partier-—oh! Wait!
