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Rajner, found out about West’s upcoming appearance he authored a controversial letter demanding the invitation be rescinded.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.
