Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) landed in hot water on Friday for his remarks the previous day comparing the Democrats proficiency in getting out their message to the notorious head of the Nazi Partys propaganda department under Hitler.
If Joseph Goebbels was around, hed be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine, West said Thursday.
Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) sent West a note expressing his disappointment in the remark. I beg of you to help raise the level of congressional discourse in vigorous debate without resort to personal attacks, Conyers wrote in a handwritten note first obtained by Politico.
Wests remarks came even as Democrats and Republicans scrambled to reach a bipartisan agreement on a spending bill necessary to continue funding the government into the new year.
That it is true!
Dear Congressman Conyers:
Go to Hell!
Rep.West swats the demo-nats at will.All GOPers need to follow his lead.
Conyers can actually write!!!!
Personal attacks? Conyers and his party have never been one to raise the level of discourse or vigorous debate. Did he repudiate statements made by his fellow Democrat earlier this year that there are congress members who would like to see blacks lynched? Did Politico obtain a handwritten note to that effect? Sure! /s
Truth to Democrats is the equivalent of garlic to vampires.
Where was the personal attack in West’s comment? Just another example of a dishonest word/meaning twist by a democrat. It also makes me wonder why Repubs haven’t brought West onto the National scene. I know about his commitment to his voters but these voters should not hold back a man with West’s qualifications and demonstrated backbone from a lineup of POTUSA candidates. West certainly knows where military collusion with Obama has taken this Nation. West has shown he is rock solid for the Founders intention for this Nation.
He should not only stick by his remark, but make them froth at the mouth even more by pointing out that Goebbels praised and imitated Woodrow Wilson’s propaganda efforts. (Maybe the ‘Rats are really offended that he’s giving credit to Goebbels instead of one of their own.)
