The hunt for Allen West (Communists want him out)

The hunt for Allen West
By CHARLES MAHTESIAN | 4/28/12 12:40 PM EDT

Judging from the volume of emails I get about Allen West, the lightning rod GOP freshman from Florida, Democrats could live without winning back the House if only they could oust West.

And that was before his recent speculation that about 80 House Democrats are communists.

How badly do his opponents want to take him down?

The Palm Beach Post reports that at least three organizations regularly assign video trackers to West events to capture his remarks and a liberal PAC has gone so far as to open an office in his district as part of its effort to knock him off.

If Allen West is angering the Left that much, he’s doing something right.

I officially forgive Rep. West for calling us skitzoids. :)

No one has the courage to join West in saying it, but the Dems are dominated by flaming Marxists.

Yet another problem with Romeny. Like that man, he won’t pick anyone who will upstage him.

Ok...let me see if I understand this. Now, any Conservative or Republican who does not admire, respect, adore and agree with Obama....must be racist, according to the Liberals. After all, Left wingers have been repeating that for almost four years. What else could it be but a racist attitude that fuels all objections to the man in the White House?

So, applying that same logic of the Left: Any Liberal/Progressive/Democrat who does not admire, respect, admire or agree with Allen West...certainly must be Racist! What else could it be that fuels their objections to Congressman West?

The one thing that scares people about Col. West? He’s a leader not a follower and that is extremely rare in a politician.

GOP should also pay attention and support West in order to show that they have a pair.

But they don’t.

Allen West terrifies the Left. As a VP candidate, he takes about 1/3 the black vote, swings Florida, energizes the Repub base (like Sarah Palin did), nullifies the "Repubs are racists" meme and sets up a real Conservative as a Repub candidate in 2016, 2020 & 2024.

Oh, and he calls the commies out, fearlessly. The Left wants to take down this "runaway", bad.

Just a thought, wouldn't it be nice to shout down a liberal who ridicules Allen West as a VP candidate with the phrase "you're a racist"?

Tell it like it is Allen, tell it like it is!

The GOP-E will hate you too, IF you run against incumbent Romney in 2015-16.

So use 2012 as a warm-up to 4 more years of Obama or Obamalite.

BTW, if the Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), hates a politician because he tells the truth, then is the LAM guilty of projecting hate? I know that they would hate to admit it. Just saying - - - .

Yup the communists have to attack Col West in the same manner as they did Joseph McCarthy.

This can and will be the battleground that began in 1950 regarding communist subversion.

This time the communists can not allow Col West or anyone else for that matter to get momentum. He and others MUST be stopped now. Stopped now at all costs because they (communists) or so close to victory.

Right. West has the ball rolling on calling out communists in our government. They want to remain hidden from public view. West is danger No. 1 to their cause.

50 freakin years go by before any politician starts calling the communists out. 50 years.

“He is considered a runaway by the Dems.”

Like a runaway slave?

The New Black Pampers must consider him a “house” negro.

Like Clarence Thomas was an “uncle Tom”.

In another thread talking of JKF this speech was linked. Certainly JFK was bringing light to the subject of the subversion of communism in America

April 27, 1961, in front of the American Newspaper Publishers Association, John F. Kennedy speaks of the clear and present danger.

http://www.jfklibrary.org/Research/Ready-Reference/JFK-Speeches/The-President-and-the-Press-Address-before-the-American-Newspaper-Publishers-Association.aspx

The whole speech in context is excellent. However in part, He says the following . . .

"Our way of life is under attack.

Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.

If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security.

If you are awaiting a finding of "clear and present danger," then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent.

It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions--by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.

It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match."

If Allen West is angering the Left that much, he’s doing something right.

The Left knows that a modern day "Joe McCarthy" would have to wait decades before being proven right. The whole PC movement was to make it 'irrsesponsible and offensive" to question or comment on those who would destroy our Freedom. When one pushes that curtain aside, and speaks plain triuth, the cockroaches seek cover and try to exterminate the threat.
