We Need Your Help Now to Defend Army Colonel West! (Move America Forward)
Move America Forward | Feb 16, 2012 | Danny Gonzalez

Posted on 02/17/2012 7:46:47 AM PST by Syncro

ALLEN WEST UNDER ATTACK!
YOUR HELP NEEDED NOW!

Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) is a freshman pro-troop conservative Member of Congress. As an African-American former military officer with service in Iraq, he has been under constant attack by the left. We are outraged that one of his political opponents – a little rich kid with inherited wealth and no achievements to his name – had the audacity to call Colonel West “a coward.”

They are going all out to defeat West by redistricting him out of office, and the pro-troop community must rise up to help this patriotic American stay in office.

Since Allen West came upon the political scene in 2010 he has been a popular punching bag for the left’s attacks while he has steadfastly represented his constituents in south Florida. He has stood up for our troops and given the halls of Congress a loud and proud voice representing our military and its interests, just as Move America Forward Political Action Committee (MAFPAC) predicted when we supported him in 2010.

I’m sure West has heard many insults hurled at him from his political opponents, but last week his would be opponent in his current Florida district, Patrick Murphy, called the revered military leader a “Coward.”

The remark was made in response to West’s announcement that he would seek re-election in a neighboring district after the Florida legislature redrew his current district with a heavy Democratic influence. We know that Allen West can stand up for himself, and that he himself has not been shy about taking on political opponents and ideas.



But to call an American hero, who served in 3 conflicts starting in Desert Storm and received a Bronze Star, a “coward”, for choosing the right district to run in, is simply absurd and offensive.

Patrick Murphy is a 28 year old accountant who works in the family business and has raised most of his campaign money from those close to his family’s business interests (or from left-wing Democrats eager to see West defeated). There is no military service in his 28 years or even any public service. Simply, it is a certified public accountant born with a silver spoon in his mouth calling a retired Lt. Col of our Armed Forces a “coward.” DISGRACEFUL!

ummm.... Murphy called West a coward for running in a new district? I am laughing out loud now.

I just read that MURPHY is running in a new district because he can’t beat Adam Hasner who is running for the seat Allen West had! Guess what?! Murphy is now running against West in the NEW district!!

What does that make West now? A hero? LOL. These commercials just write themselves! Thanks Murphy :)

The kid looks like your typical shiny little, dipped in fruit juice, metro so I wouldn’t expect anything more from him. What bugs me is that the establishment GOP would probably secretly side with femmy over Col. West.

Turns out there was a reason, the saying is “Got his brains beat out” NOT “Got his brains beat in.”

This is one man I would love to call Mr. President. Yet, Allen wants to stay in Congress where he can do the most good. Although I do not live in Florida, I send him contributions when I can. I get email from him every week with updates on what he’s been doing. We need more like him running this country. God Bless Allen West!

Anyone who attacks Col. West is helping islamic supremacists and jihad. Period!!!!

Of course, Col. West is a prime target of the obama/’RAT political machine, which will stop at nothing to drum him out of office.

This little accountant may just be following a script laid out for him by the Dictator Party. PHOOEY to that! When one reaches the age of 28, it’s high time to start thinking for oneself, not just parroting a bunch of nonsense!

Hmmm...

Where is the NAACP on this one?

Re-drawing the maps here in Texas has turned this year’s election cycle into a total cluster#%&@.

What with the minorities crying foul coupled with an alleged history of voter discrimination within the state.

The Voting Rights Act ought to have been allowed to die. Paradoxically it has institutionalized racial segregation.

Ugh.

There are some things sensible people do not do, and the list includes calling decorated combat veterans “cowards.” Even if Congressman West were a liberal Democrat I'd be objecting to such slander. There is no excuse for it.

Freedom isn't free; we have our freedoms because of the sacrifices of our servicemembers, and we forget that at our peril.

Hadn’t seen it. My boy West could teach that little sissy the meaning of coward just by LOOKING at him. That little girlie-boy needs a lesson in self-awareness.......he probably still lives in his mommy’s basement playing “Call of Duty” and thinking he’s hot-stuff.

Because the rats got an innocuous sounding constitutional amendment on the ballot in 2010. No Congressional district can be drawn to favor or disfavor any politician. It was designed to remove the drawing of district lines from the pubbie legislature and place it with the 5-2 radical lib supreme court.

It worked. The stinkin’ court decides Congressional district boundaries.
