GOP Rep. Allen “Wild Wild” West Is A Joke

The state of Florida is home to one of our nation’s most inept and moonbat-crazy members of Congress. I’m speaking of none other than Allen West, the self-proclaimed Tea Partier and former Army lieutenant who was relieved of his command and fined as the result of his violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

West was elected to the U.S House of Representatives with a gang of other Tea Party supported Republicans in the 2010 mid-term elections. He was even endorsed by Sarah Palin, so that should tell you something. Since being elected he has not done much legislating, but he has revealed himself to be a suitable candidate for admittance to the psychiatric ward. Take a look at a few of the things he has publicly stated as reported in the Broward Palm Beach New Times:

!. He appears regularly on Fox News (where else?) where he has referred to President Barack Obama as a “low-level socialist agitator” whose “Marxist demagogic rhetoric” indicates a “Third World dictator-like arrogance.” ;

2. In remarks made to a conservative woman’s group in Boca Raton, Florida, West indicated how he wanted the United States to look: “In ancient days, the most feared, the most vicious warriors known to man were the Spartans,” said West. “Never known to retreat, never known to surrender.” He then told the women, Because the Spartan women at the age of 9 gave up their male sons, and their male sons went into a training that was called the Agoge and they stayed in that training for the next 11 to 12 years,” he said. “And when they finally qualified, when they were finally ready to join the ranks of the Spartan army, it was not their father who gave them their cloak and their shield. It was their mother who gave them their shield. And when the Spartan mother gave that young Spartan warrior his shield, she gave him this basic commandment: ‘Spartan, here is your shield. Come back wearing this shield or being borne upon it.’” What is West talking about? Is he advocating a military state?

  •  This is what Allen West had to say about critics of the Marines who urinated on the corpses of Taliban soldiers: “As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.” Apparently, West is unaware that there’s a constitutional amendment that allows us to not shut our mouths, and it specifically prevents nuts like Allen West from making us do so.
  • The Palm Beach Post reports that West said this about Obama supporters: “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”
  • This is what West said to fellow Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in an email: “…You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of representatives…You have proven repeatedly that you are not a lady.”

Crazy stuff indeed, but let’s take a look at what Allen West said just this week about his fellow members of Congress. CNN reports, that when West was asked at a town hall meeting how many members of Congress are “card-carrying Marxists”, he responded by saying: “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He went on to say, “These members of Congress advocate the type of policies that have put Europe on the brink of economic and fiscal collapse, and are driving the United States in the same direction. “

Wow! West is truly a modern age Joe McCarthy. Problem is, West seems ignorant of the fact that none of those European countries in economic turmoil are communist nations. Then again, ignorance has never been a stumbling block to advancement within the Republican Party. Just ask the aforementioned Sarah Palin who recently suggested Allen West as a possible GOP Vice Presidential nominee!

STRANGE ONES ON THE RIGHT

(sung to the Frank Sinatra song “Strangers In The Night”)

Strange ones on the right,
Fox News romancers
Not so very bright,
With our finances
This Tea Party love
Should be viewed as taboo

Palin shouting lies
And fear inciting
Rand Paul is hostile
And so damn frightening
Boehner has no heart
McConnell has no clue

Strange ones on the right,
Abnormal people
They are strange ones on the right
Not one sane moment
They should be in a freak-show
Little do they know
It would just enhance our day
If like Bristol they’d dance away and –

And on Fox every night,
They’re all together
Lovers on the right
In love forever
It’s an ugly sight
Those strange ones on the right

(Tea-Bagging break)

Don’t look now just glance away
Here comes their jailbird Tom Delay

You can join their fight
And hang together
Only if you’re white
Birds of a feather
Taking their last flight
Those strange ones on the right
