I hope and pray that we can convince this man to run for POTUS. Did you notice that he uses no teleprompter nor does he stammerstudder or back down? Can you imagine how Barry would fare in a debate with this man? Allen West is to islamist jihadis what Ronald Reagan was to communists. Allen West is to Obama what Ronald Reagan was to Carter. NOBODY in the GOP even comes close to the awesomeness of Allen West. Nobody.
@Zilla - This man is the real deal. He has courage and leadership written all over him.
Who's next? He don't take no crap from nobody! (bad grammar intentional) LOL
@Odie - No crap, nobody, no bowing!
Yep, and how sad a statement about America (land of the free, home of the brave) that it's only a "minority" pol who can actually stand there and fight back. A white pol would have to whimper and whine and genuflect in order to make sure they don't "insult" anyone. Ugh. So frustrating. But kudos to Colonel West: this is exactly what needs to be done. Often.
@Fuzzy - I don't agree. I think that West stands there and fights back because he is a career warrior, not a career pol. Warriors don't genuflect. Pols kneel at the trough.
The guy is simply outstanding. It's funny how facts get in the way of radical, nonsensical rhetoric. God Bless and protect Allen West.
@QR, I did not say that West was a career pol (or make any statement about WHY he fights back--just why he CAN fight back against Islam), so you aren't disagreeing with me.What I said was that it's only possible for a minority, as a member of the "protected class," to stand toe to toe with any other member of any "protected class."
"Warriors don't genuflect."That's the truth, QR. Excellent video. I always remember this West line because it's not hyperbole coming from him: "If it's about the lives of my men and their safety, I'd go through Hell with a gasoline can." And being surrounded by warriors, they mean it. He means what he says. What a world we live in when that's so striking, no?
@John - Some Americans would rather have the wool pulled over their eyes than know the truth; the rest of us are sick and tired of it!@Fuzzy - I doubt that "protected class" thing applies to Allen West. I don't think Eric Holder keeps Allen West's name on his protected list, though the New Black Panthers have top billing there, along with the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, winner of the Muammar al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights. I think that when West becomes better known, he'll lose whatever shreds of protection the Left still deems to grant him. @pjMom - I'd say that, in his own way, this man has already gone through Hell with a gasoline can. And lived to tell about it.@Woman - Maybe West's example will encourage others to speak plainly. America could use a whole lot more of that.
