Allen West: All Aboard the Crazy Train
Time to board the Allen West crazy train. While speaking at a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP, Rep. West fired off this choice line:
“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table…Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America."
I’m glad he really did not hold back this time…
This is just the latest sound bite from a man who seems to have no filter. If he’s not calling Obama’s supporters a “threat to the gene pool” or voting lock step with the GOP’s War on Women, then he must be calling Debbie Wasserman Schultz “the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Americans have repeatedly asked Congress to protect Medicare and create jobs, but Allen West’s record shows that he is more interested in pushing his extremist views that do nothing but push the divisive politics of the Tea Party.
It is time that his voters sent him a message: Stop this crazy talk and start representing us.
That is why at EMILYs List, we are proud to support Lois Frankel. Not only does she have a track record of supporting businesses and creating jobs, she will work to protect women and families against the extremist Tea Party agenda.
