Earlier today in his address to the United Nations, President Obama again found it difficult to identify a clear case of terrorism as terrorism.
In that address, the President spoke of the future of those who would dare insult the religion of Islam, taking a shot at the makers of the anti-Mohammed film which has since been used as a paltry excuse for the attacks in Libya.
Meanwhile, Congressman Allen West also offered his vision of the future for those who would attack and kill Americans.
You tell me which statements you would rather hear from the Commander-in-Chief.
President Obama (Democrat):
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Allen West (Republican):
“The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence”
So which do you prefer, appeasement or strength?
Yesterday, Democrats held an embarrassing voice vote on whether the word “God” should be reinstated into their platform.
God had been omitted from the platform earlier in the week.
Allen West has responded by releasing the following ad which states, “Three Times They Said No to God“.
The ad shows the disaster that developed on the convention floor in which Democrats vehemently booed and screamed as the resolution was forced through against their wishes. It concludes with Wolf Blitzer stating, “Who would’ve thought the word ‘God’ would’ve been so controversial?”
&amp;lt;a href=”http://polldaddy.com/poll/6409912/”&amp;gt;Who Should Romney Pick as Vice-President?&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;
Allen West, once again showing that he fears nothing in his quest to deliver truthful commentary on the state of today’s liberal Democratic party, ripped into the left’s perpetual use of the race card and stated that ‘true racism’ lies with white liberals.
West was responding to an article in the Los Angeles Times that ripped into Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for not condemning past comments from the Congressman from Florida. The Times piece showed their true colors by referring to West as a “gaffe-ster” and a “clown prince” of outrageousness.
Apparently, the author would have preferred that Priebus refer to West in the same terms.
West’s response, in an interview with Mike Huckabee, was laced with typical verbal beatings for the left (h/t Right Scoop):
I really feel that it is demeaning to me to think that I need some individual to justify me and my existence. Look, I went through 22 years being in the military, I rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel, I have a bachelor and 2 masters degrees.
And for these white liberals to believe they can have this condescending manner toward black conservatives that we need to have approval from our quote unquote, I guess “masters”, for us to be able to speak – see that’s where the true racism really lies governor is with the white liberals who don’t want to see someone such as myself that broke away from their dependency class and is out here and able to possibly contend against them with the policies that they are promoting that’s destroying the black community.
I know I’m their #1 target and it just emboldens me to speak out even stronger. And the heck with them if they think someone else needs to approve of me and what I stand for.
Allen West recently held a townhall meeting at the Mae Volen senior center in Boca Raton. Despite the seemingly peaceful setting, a few overzealous protesters repeatedly attacked the Florida congressman during the audience question period. And the liberals, as they often do, crossed the line (video below).
Things seemed to be relatively under control. Some of the protesters were escorted out of the meeting before its completion due to their behavior, while others stuck around to harass the Congressman afterward.
One woman started arguing her point for gay marriage – perfectly fine in and of itself – but her delivery was a might bit crass, prompting security to step in. Rather than accepting the point that the crowd was approaching uncalled-for obnoxious levels, the progressives began referring to the security team as stormtroopers and accusing them of “Gestapo-like” behavior.
At some point, West is surrounded by what he calls his “liberal groupies”, but vows that “I’m going to stand right here.” That’s when they begin to press on even further.
As Doug Ross reports, some of the World War II vets in attendance try to stand up for West as the protesters continue pressing and trying to hurl insults his way.
Instead of honoring their service, the liberals go after these heroes, to the point of putting hands on one while dropping the f-bomb on him.
Because that’s the way liberals roll, don’t ya know?
This image (courtesy of Ross) shows a bit of the scuffle…
I have to disagree… Allen West isn’t ‘going rogue’ – he is the obvious choice.
Sarah Palin says there’s one name at the top of her list if the Republican Party wants to “go rogue” in its pick for the vice presidential nominee: Rep. Allen West.
The former vice presidential candidate told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Tuesday that the Florida Republican would be a great choice for the 2012 ticket. She argued that the eventual presidential nominee shouldn’t “think they have to go with somebody necessarily safe.”
“Top of my list is Allen West,” she said. “I love that he has that military experience. He is a public servant willing to serve for the right reasons. He understands the Constitution. He understands our national foreign policy issues that must be addressed. He has served. I really like him. There are so many, Sean, that are out there. And when I talk about going rogue, what I want to do is encourage the GOP nominee to not think that they have to go with somebody necessarily safe that conventional wisdom perhaps would lead somebody to believe that, if it’s somebody, quote-unquote, safe, that they’re not going to get beat up by the media, because no matter who it is.”
President Obama? No.
Eric Holder? No.
Think, real man…
Allen West condemned the recent $10,000 bounty placed by the New Black Panther Party on George Zimmerman’s head. Why? Because West is a born leader, and not a spineless racial reactionary like the President and Eric Holder.
Tell us, Mr. President – Where’s the beer summit? Where’s the request for toning down the rhetoric? Where is the denunciation of the bounty, or Spike Lee’s idiotic re-tweeting of what he thought was Zimmerman’s address?
You won’t see them, because the leader of the free world leads from behind.
Allen West leads from the front.
Here is West’s statement:
I vehemently condemn the bounty poster emanating from the New Black Panther Party putting a $10,000 ransom up for the capture of George Zimmerman and call upon the US Department of Justice to prosecute their actions, clearly a hate crime. We have seen this type of abhorrent behavior from this group previously in 2008 as part of a voter intimidation action, it is reprehensible. To openly solicit for the death of an American citizen, with reward, is not in keeping with the laws of due process which governs this Constitutional Republic. However, this is to be expected when irrational voices dominate our public dialogue and are fueled by an ideological driven media. I am concerned that that the tragic death of Trayvon Martin is being hijacked by malcontents.
As usual, West needs no further commentary. The man is a perpetual machine of wisdom.
Via The Hill:
Freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Wednesday evening praised the Republican Party for consistently fighting for individual freedom over the last 150 years, and criticized Democrats for pursuing “handouts” to the less fortunate that he said are a modern form of slavery.
“Our party firmly believes in the safety net,” West said in a late Wednesday floor speech. “We reject the idea of the safety net becoming a hammock.”
“For this reason, the Republican value of minimizing government dependence is particularly beneficial to the poorest among us,” he continued. “Conversely, the Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today, and it does not promote economic freedom.”
West recounted the history of the Republican Party by noting that it played a major role in several key moments in which it fought for greater freedoms for African Americans. “The Republican Party has always been the party of freedom,” he said.
Among other events, he noted that Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, and the GOP pushed the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution that ended slavery, provided equal protection under the law, and gave blacks the right to vote.
He added that a Republican Congress passed the law establishing the Buffalo Soldiers, and that GOP President Ulysses Grant signed the first major civil rights act into law in 1875.
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) took place in Washington, DC this weekend – a blockbuster event that brings together thousands of grassroots conservatives and conservative leaders for three days of major Presidential candidate speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities.
On Thursday we ran into some scheduling difficulties that prevented our arrival on the first day, but had anticipated arriving for the after party known as BlogBash.
Dress to impress. We know you spend a majority of your blogging-life eschewing pants, so look at this as an opportunity to show everyone what you’ve got… or cover what you haven’t got with a nice suit…
Well, wear what you want, but hint hint.
On Thursday night, somewhere on the Delaware Memorial Bridge, you may have seen a man on the side of the highway, on his knees like Tim Robbins in Shawshank Redemption, yelling “NO!!!!!!”
That was me.
I forgot to pack pants.
We missed a majority of the party because we had to go pants shopping.
“If Americans take time to think about what they truly believe, they will find out they are conservatives.”
“It is the liberal philosophy, not the conservative one, that views humans as selfish automatons.”
“Liberals worry that what’s best for the individual might not be better for the public at large. But that philosophy assumes something vicious about each and every one of us. It assumes we only care about ourselves.”
And this one that got West a well-deserved standing ovation…
“Of course we have compassion. We just don’t believe the safety net should be used as a hammock.”
I don’t care who our candidate is and I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t! Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …
When I walk through CPAC or a I travel the United States to meet people in the Tea Party who care – black, white, gay, and straight – anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker.
And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with [a certain] candidate, more than shame on you! You’re on the other side!
“We won in 2010 because conservatives rallied. They were excited about the candidates who were put forth. Why would an undecided voter vote for a candidate of the party who the party’s not excited about?”
He did not apologize for his conservatism…
“We will no longer abandon and apologize for the policies and principles that made this country great for a hollow victory in November.”
He attacked Obamacare…
“The major reason I’m in this race is because I think Obamacare is a game changer for America.”
And he blasted the administrations attempts at forcing Catholic hospitals and churches to pay for things that go against their morals and beliefs, a stance that brought about a massive standing ovation…
“This is the kind of coercion we can expect. It’s not about contraception. It’s about economic liberty, it’s about freedom of speech, it’s about freedom of religion. It’s about government control of your lives and it’s gotta stop.”
Gingrich talked for at least five minutes about which of President Barack Obama’s policies he would undo if elected to the White House, and summed it up this way: “We will have repudiated at least 40 percent of his government on the opening day.”
“We need to teach the Republican establishment a lesson… We are determined to rebuild America, not manage its decay.”
Obama started that decay, will it be reversed in 2012?
Before a jam-packed crowd, with hundreds more watching on monitors in the convention center hallways and overflow rooms, Palin attacked the Obama economic agenda from many angles. She delivered the CPAC keynote speech, bringing down the house with a awe-inspiring gems…
“We aren’t red Americans, we aren’t blue Americans, we are red white and blue Americans and, President Obama, we are through with you!”
“We will never apologize for America’s strength and our greatness… we refuse to accept that a weak America means a better and safer world.”
“The president says small-town Americans, we bitterly cling to our religion and our guns because we’re just doggone frustrated with his pace of change. We say, ‘Keep your change. We’ll keep our God, our guns, our Constitution.’ ”
“Hope and change? Yea, you gotta hope things change.”
“This is Obama’s Washington. It is not the Washington of our founders, but the Washington of the permanent political class. It is something that our forefathers never envisioned as they would have sworn their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to change.”
“He says he has a jobs plan out, a jobs plan to ‘Win the Future.’ W.T.F. — I know.”
Tucker took part in an amusing segment called the ‘fight club’ debate against Paul Begala. I had the chance to meet Tucker for the first time, having contributed to the Daily Caller in the past and communicating via e-mail for some time now. He could not have been a more gracious person, agreeing to two pictures and actually making me feel like an important part of the program.
Need I say anything other than, Save Us Chuck Woolery!
This man will be President one day. He was far and away the most powerful speaker at yesterday’s CPAC conference in Washington, DC.
Last month, West opened the door to a possible Vice-Presidential role, though he scarcely seems like a supporting role type of character. He is a leader. That said, should Romney or Gingrich win the nomination, they would be wise to give West serious consideration as their running mate. It would give them credibility in areas such as foreign policy and national defense, as well as giving them added credibility with staunch conservatives – a group disenchanted with current establishment candidates.
Rep. Allen West, R-Florida, said conservatism is still alive during his address Friday to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “If Americans take time to think about what they truly believe, they will find out they are conservatives,” West said.
West was just getting started. He absolutely knocked it out of the park when he drove home the following points about a liberal reliance on government.
From The Hill:
Then there was this takeaway line:
He told activists that when conservatives object to expanded entitlements and redistribution of wealth, they are accused of having no compassion.
“Of course we have compassion. We just don’t believe the safety net should be used as a hammock,” he said to boisterous applause.
A safety net – not a hammock.
Thank God for men like Allen West.
