Allen West reads new FBI manual, turns into bowl of custard

That thorough nastyass Tea Party bigot, the disgraced lieutenant colonel, Rep. Allen West (R-occipital lobe powderburns), warns you of impending death. Wake up libtard. Time to build a booga pillowfort and toss your furniture, Publisher’s Clearinghouse clippings and children whatever inside because who’d figure a wetcrack Florida anti-Muslim kook for spineless?

Rep. Allen West fears ‘cultural suicide’
MJ Lee | Politico

Rep. Allen West warned Monday that reports of the FBI’s training manual being edited to scrap portions considered offensive to the Muslim community . .

. . means yes that’s right the end of America. He said it. Problems?

“We have to understand when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it will lead to cultural suicide and we should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood-associated groups to be influencing our national security strategy,” the Florida Republican said on “Fox & Friends.”

. . the quivering blur of jelly said on “Islam Animaniacs.”

Allen’s not much for hiding his fears. When confronted with angry people, if America won’t attack those associated identity/ethnic/gender groups, it’s killing itself. As a government member, he warns: “We’ll only calm down after you calm down. Got it?” This is how “tolerance” is offered — as a post-war condition. This comes from a man whose indiscipline and temper got him thrown out of our army in Iraq.

“We are making our security situation so vanilla. If we continue to be recalcitrant in identifying who the enemy is, to be less offensive to them, we put ourselves in a bad situation,” West added.

When law enforcement turns from arbitrarily racist to codified and civil rights-y, it is rendered vanilla. Those Southern sheriffs used to be a colorful bunch, hmm? The FBI manual used to say . . “Islam is a highly violent religion,” and “mainstream American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers.” Now that those ‘facts’ are gone, agents will find it impossible to do their jobs. They’ll prefer to stay in bed and catch re-runs of Walking Tall thank you very much . .

The guy playing race cards like black Maverick

On MLK day, Allen West feels it’s a good time to go after the president. What better way to celebrate a man who asked America to see beyond race than to call Obama a race-baiting opportunist? It’s perfectly fine to do that when you’re Allen.

Mr. President, please don’t play the race card in 2012
Congressman Allen West | Facebook

I was born in the inner city of Atlanta in 1961, when segregation was still rife, at a time when I would have been barred from visiting the very beaches that make up part of the congressional district I so proudly represent.

. . it would be a disgrace if Mr. Holder’s comment is the first salvo in the upcoming campaign to deflect honest assessment of the President’s performance in office. This campaign must be about ideas, policy and the direction of this country, and the President must not hide behind a curtain of so-called racial bias . .

My message to President Obama is this: “Mr. President, your very presence in office demonstrates Dr. King’s dream has indeed come true. But how devastated would Dr. King be to know the Americans who are still fomenting racism at the highest levels are the very people for whom he fought for and died?”

The legitimacy of the attack is enhanced after Allen reminds everybody he’s a victim of racism. Don’t you think? Anyways, if I get West right, the president campaigning like this would be obscene:

“The people on that plantation are upset because they’ve been disregarded, disrespected and their concerns are not cared about” . .

“I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman to kind of lead people on the underground railroad away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility” . .

Allen? Do you recognize yourself?

Some black leaders “are nothing more than overseers over that plantation,” West said, including Rep. Maxine Waters (D-house negro) . .

Call me over-sensitive, but I’m getting a whiff of racial politics.

“White liberals have turned over to certain leaders — ‘perceived leaders’ — in the black community like a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, a Maxine Waters or Barbara Lee, and said, ‘pacify and keep the black community firmly behind us regardless of the failures of our social welfare policies,’” West said.

I imagine Allen will deny he’s playing the race card; conservatives can’t even do that.

I’m the threat because I’m the guy that got off their 21st-century plantation, and they cannot afford to have a strong voice such as mine out there, reverberating and resonating across this country.

He’ll say you’re just angry with him because he’s . . well, black.

Allen West calls us “Joseph Goebbels”: UPDATE for die Ironie

Allen West, the Florida Tea Party representative from a very Jewish district, offered us an opinion yesterday. When asked about Americans having a negative view of Congress, Allen said it was unfair. The reason people thought Republicans were douchebag politicians, he said, wasn’t because it was true. It was because Democrats were master media manipulators, like those of the Nazi Party. Liberals are modern-day Reich Ministers of Propaganda:

Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said Thursday that Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would be “very proud” of Democrats for shifting public sentiment against Republicans, and he blamed the press for helping spread their message.

“If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine,” West told reporters in the Capitol. “I think that you have, and let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out.”

Are we Joseph Goebbels? I don’t think so. Goebbels was a homicidal lunatic, a man directly responsible for the deaths of countless Jews. We like our Jewish friends. They’re more likely to be Democrats than Republicans, and I’m happy to assume there’s a good reason for that.

So this sounds like an opinion offered for effect, doesn’t it? There’s a word for that, though it escapes me now. Anyway, more Democrats:

. . Goebbels told Hitler that “spontaneous” anti-Jewish violence had already broken out in German cities, although in fact this was not true: this was a clear case of Goebbels manipulating Hitler for his own ends . . He wrote in his diary:

“[Hitler] decides: demonstrations should be allowed to continue. The police should be withdrawn. For once the Jews should get the feel of popular anger … I immediately gave the necessary instructions to the police and the Party. Then I briefly spoke in that vein to the Party leadership. Stormy applause. All are instantly at the phones. Now people will act.”

The result of Goebbels’ incitement was Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass,” during which the S.A. and Nazi Party went on a rampage of anti-Jewish violence and destruction, killing at least 90 and maybe as many as 200 people, destroying over a thousand synagogues and hundreds of Jewish businesses and homes, and dragging some 30,000 Jews off to concentration camps . .

Are we the types of people to incite an anti-wingnut Kristallnacht in America? Would we murder or imprison thousands of Republicans? I doubt it. And though we hate the teabagger, the same way Goebbels despised Berlin Police President Bernhard Weiss, would we orchestrate a propaganda effort like this?


Gosh, maybe we would. That’s awfully funny.


JUST IN: You can’t make this comedy up . .

Media Matters brings word that furious right-wing truth teller, Andrew Breitbart — who believes Allen West should run for President — has been using classic Nazi imagery to attack the Democrat-controlled media:

In at least three instances, Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism website has used an image connected to a Nazi-era German magazine noted for anti-Semitic cartoons and pro-Hitler leanings.

The image appeared in a Big Journalism post Thursday morning written by Logan Churchwell, director of public relations at Accuracy in Media:

Here’s their pic of the post:

. . and here’s the original image, from a 1942 copy of Nazi propaganda fount Kladderadatsch:



No harm in using a time-tested image to attack the dirty propagandists, right? Okay, Allen, there’s your cue: “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud.” But you guys might want to shorten the hook nose and erase the Star of David before posting it. Oh, I see. Gut gemacht.

The growing Dodo branch of Republican evolution

What a clip of Rep. Allen West. Hosing a national TV audience with Tea Party rhetoric:

Unbelievable. Allen is, as most know, a high-strung, low-information Teabagger who crawls out of his trench to lob stupor grenades. You may not find yourself psychotic or incarcerated, but if you otherwise differ from G. Gordon Liddy you’re Allen’s target. You are also stupid and un-patriotic and dumb and un-American and you’re also, additionally, totally darn stupid.

Stupids! Get yourself a West education:

“You have to be able to call as you see it. I’m very concerned about this very divisive rhetoric that the president is using, when he continues to talk about ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ . . “

Suuuuurely Professor doesn’t mean actual ‘equality’ and ‘fairness,’ those are centuries-old political and societal ideals. You want good things for yourself, your family, your community? Those will do. Allen must mean Obama was using these vaunted concepts disingenuously. He’s been saying something like “You know what’s fair? When I confiscate Trump’s mountain of gold, and I give it to you.”

” . . this thing that I think, it is really contrary to the principles that I mentioned, as far as life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Because the government cannot guarantee happiness.”

But no. Allen means actual equality, and he means fairness. He’s saying they’re stupid. The government can’t achieve them, so the very ideas are what’s disingenuous. Why try something that can’t be done? If that sounds un-American, that’s because it is profoundly so. More:

“And if we believe that there are people in Washington, D.C. that are going to be the arbiters and be the ones who are trying to create some type of fairness — we remember FDR talking about a chicken in every pot, I recall all the rhetoric of economic and social justice — then we get away from having the right type of monetary policy, fiscal policy, tax and regulatory policy that can turn this dismal economic situation around in our country.”

To wit: The stuck-up government can’t produce equality, but idiot Democrats like FDR and Dr. King keep trying. Throw all that away and then we’ll fix our problems.

Question: To what purpose, Allen? What’s the point when equality is a conceit? When fairness is a partisan ploy? Why should anyone go on participating in America when fair play isn’t just difficult, it is thoroughly repudiated by powerful agents of the government like you? Because of starvation? Nasty weather? Avarice and greed?

This is the problem the Founding Fathers sought to solve. Governments previously served only the powerful, and everybody else had to fend for themselves. The Fathers’ new way of political thinking endowed the nobodies of the world with towering rights: To life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It was now a subservient government’s job to serve those rights. If the government never achieved perfect service, it failed. But that certainly never meant it was appropriate to give up on those Age of Enlightenment ideals, the Founding Fathers’ achievements and the United States of America.

Until Allen West came along. Now it’s time to quit the country. This is how far down the Dodo branch of political evolution Republicans have run. They are fundamentally opposed to the founding and substance of the United States. To appreciate this, just look at Republican Herbert Hoover’s campaign literature from 1928:

It was he, not FDR, that popularized “A Chicken In Every Pot.” Back when Republicans could remember who Thomas Paine was, these were the things they believed in:

The Republican Party is equality’s party — opportunity’s party — democracy’s party, the party of national development, not sectional interests — the impartial servant of every state and condition in the union.

Is there any more perfect list of what today’s GOP violently oppose?

Michael Steele is Beginning to Look Like Malcolm X to Me

If you thought like me that Herman Cain was the strangest black man in the Republican Party, you were wrong. Months ago, when I called Allen West a ‘Walking Anger Management Problem,’ I sensed that he was even more…unique…than that. At the time, he was completely losing his shit over the diminutive, post-cancer chemotherapy patient Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The optics may have been bad, but he really had no choice. She is a woman and she questioned his authoritah! He is A Real Man.

But remember this? He got mad at NBC, too:

West has denied NBC News’s reports of his involvement with the gang, and recently told Hotline On Call that the story can’t be true because the Outlaws do not “accept blacks, Jews or gays” into their ranks.

The West campaign has responded to the reports, denying their veracity and accusing NBC of a biased reporting:

“In what can only be described as a political hatchet job by the liberal mainstream media, NBC News – through reporter Lisa Myers – made an outrageous claim that LTC(R) Allen West condones criminal activity. Myers clearly has an agenda to try and stop good people like Allen who oppose the far left policies that are wreaking havoc upon our country.”

Turns out he just gets mad. Ask him about Herman Cain:

Scott Hennen: Is it an attack on a black conservative because he’s a black conservative?

Congressman West: Oh come on, I mean you know I was the only black member of a white supremacist motorcycle gang, so liberals and there are certain others I would say even within our party that are not comfortable with strong black conservative voices, and I would say there are people that feel very threatened by that because we do stand on principle. We are someone or entities that are out of the mainstream, if you want to call it that, so liberals are definitely going to come at you.

So I guess Herman Cain is not the only black man in the GOP who would get a special kind of thrill if somebody called him “Cornbread.” Or something. This is why we can’t have nice things, like participatory democracy. It is also why the following is all over the interwebs these days:  “2012–It’s Not Just an Election, It’s a Restraining Order.”

One thing is sure, we are going to have to stop cracking jokes about Michele Malkin winning the award for being the white supremacist with the darkest skin.

Allen West, political society’s nasty little gossip

Allen West, gossip columnist. Bitch and dish, dish and bitch . .

. . said this week that President Barack Obama was intentionally crippling the U.S. economy because he was a “marxist” and a “socialist.”

Ooooh, Allen, I just love you. You have dirt on everyone, girl. You get inside. Inside, for you, consists of being inside the heads of your own enemies from inside your own head. Sneaky. Convenient. Normally we’d call you a ‘tail-wagger,’ but, since you’ve gotten so celebrated for doing it, how about ‘Cindy Adams’?

Questions for Cindy? Do you think the president is trying to hurt the economy?

“It is intentional,” West declared. “It is intentional because this is who the president is. The president is a Marxist because he believes in the separation of classes.”

Oh snap. The ‘separation of classes’ is what Marxism and Communism were meant to destroy. Darn. Well, nobody said gossips had brains. It’s probably why they whine for a living.

“. . when you have a national leader that demonizes a certain segment of the society and attacks them, it has never ended up well. Yet, that is what we have. He is a socialist because he believes in nationalizing production.”

He’s, uh, waah? Taking his ‘Class War Revue’ coast to coast? Well, that is news. Score another for Cindy.

“President Obama’s policies have had a devastating effect on our economy, not just unemployment but investment,” conservative radio host Michael Berry told West Monday.

“The whole gambit,” West agreed.

Gambit: “A maneuver, stratagem, or ploy, especially one used at an initial stage.” No, Cindy. Witness the glitch in a gossip’s software: the need to look substantive. The want to appear intelligent and relevant while actually being useless. Tough gig. And then, there’s the bigger glitch: attending those personal needs through public malice. Wouldn’t want to be you, Cindy.

Rep. Allen West is seriously full of shit

Did you know there hasn’t been a black House Republican from Florida since 1876? Until Allen West got elected last November? With any luck, there won’t be another until the year A.D. Donkey Ballz.

A decision by the President of the Wilton Manors Business Association, Celeste Ellich, to invite Congressman Allen West to address the non-partisan group ignited a local storm of controversy… When the legislative director of the GLBT Democratic caucus, Michael Rajner, found out about West’s upcoming appearance he authored a controversial letter demanding the invitation be rescinded.

“Bullies and opportunists like West have actively worked against the advancement of social justice for GLBT-people and others,” the letter read…

Just days before this latest controversy West said at a town hall meeting: “When you take the military and you tell it they must conform to the individual’s behavior, then it’s just a matter of time until you break down the military.”

It’s just like the gays, isn’t it? Forever making ridiculous demands. Khaki tu-tus and oral sex in the barracks, would that really be so bad? Not that they haven’t enjoyed hiding their true identities from the military for the last century or so. But now that they’re somehow in a position to dictate to the armed forces, everybody can get down on their knees, please.

There are very few things Allen West can’t SERIOUS the shit out of so that it no longer resembles any Earthly thing. Like when Rep. Wasserman-Schultz pointed out — not by name, mind you — that a certain serious Florida congressman was putting his constituency in jeopardy:

The gentleman from Florida who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from South Florida.

It got an appropriate response from the representative, who veered from his initial plan to produce his sidearm, shove the barrel in the the enemy’s mouth and teach her a lesson.

You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up . .

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior…

That’ll stop her, the bitch. Talking politics on the House floor, like that, wow.

Which reminds me — politics is just not West’s game. Nope, he hasn’t the taste for it. And what, pray tell, IS the colonel’s game? It’s humility, service, sacrifice, and a Hollywood-size lust for public relations. This man, he’s a serious patriot. He has no use for petty squabbling, or the rhetorical tickle-fights of the gay rotisserie roundforum, or whatever the hell it is they call themselves.

In these very tough economic times, I find it intolerable that the Florida Gay, Lesbian, Transgender Democratic Caucus would call upon a boycott to hurt small business owners trying to earn a living and only wanting to better be informed about business related issues from their Member of Congress. Clearly, we have learned who really are the intolerable individuals in South Florida.

Serious people don’t do whatever it is you’re accusing him of. Well, okay, he’s splitting infinitives and maybe not-knowing the word ‘intolerant’, which is pretty much like any other teenager — fine. But who’s the Rock of Red Florida? Who’s the small business genius loose in our world? None other than Allen West, the wingnut red-ass accustomed to sleeping in Quonset huts.

Entrepreneurs could use some advice from a guy like that. They might hear about the time Allen held his handgun next to the head of an Iraqi policeman and pulled the trigger, getting the spontaneous confession he did want – and the end of a twenty year military career he didn’t. A job-creator being denied that sort of business acumen, he could well go bankrupt. Or he could end up in the brig.

But there’s a lesson here for us. And it comes on the straight and narrow, which is the only way this lieutenant colonel can deliver it. When we don’t let crazy Allen West do and say exactly as he pleases, it’s America that loses out. It’s we who suffer, because…

“If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can . . ”

That’s right. Which means, there was a time when the military wasn’t serious about the lives of its soldiers. There were days when the Army actually refused to abuse their own prisoners of war. But not good ole’ Allen, because he had plenty more courage than that. Unfortunately his superiors, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, didn’t agree that he knew better about torture, and war, than they did. So Allen’s days in uniform are over. Now’s the time for politics, and, about that, he’s gotten as serious as a man can get. So take note there, Debbie. Unless you outrank this officer, you can just shut the heck up.

I wouldn’t say Republicans were fond of women

Rep. Allen West:

You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up . .

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Don’t Republicans know what a “lady” is all about? Why yes. A “lady” like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz wouldn’t dare criticize an idiot like West.

In the manner of perfectly professional, familiar political discourse, she may not call out one of the most unhinged, hypercritical lunatics in D.C.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s recent accusation reeked of feminism when she announced that Republicans were “anti-women.” This claim was also absurd and completely false.

In fact, her statement is almost laughable in face of the fact that the Republicans have at least one, and possibly two, female presidential candidates.

It’s Debbie, who reeked of feminism, that’s likely a woman hater. Right. The two candidates, especially the husband-obeyer, Bachmann, aren’t self-hating appeasers. Yup.

Frankly, their popularity makes a pretty good case for Republicans being uncomfortable with women. But this is easier. Number of women serving in the two caucuses:

Democratic representatives: 51
Republican representatives: 24

Democratic senators: 12
Republican senators: 5

Five women out of forty-seven senators? Five? Twelve is absolutely nothing to brag about, but five? You’re dangerously close to zero, you woman-loving freaks.
