End of the Allen West Era


Two weeks after losing his house seat in Florida’s 18th congressional district to Patrick Murphy, tea party hero and possible war criminal Allen West has conceded defeat.  Having challenged St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors for a recount, results so far have only increased Patrick Murphy’s lead, despite West outspending his opponent 4 to 1.

Let’s take this time to reminisce about the two year Allen West era.

  • In April, Mr. West brought back the 50’s, accusing “78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party” in Congress of being members of the Communist Party.
  • In a letter written while West was in the army to his wife, he announced that when he returned, there would be “a standard and . . . non-negotiable” requirement that she commit to being his “porn star
  • Of course Allen West is not just an expert when it comes to porn stars, but women in general, having accused Debbie Wasserman Schultz of not being a lady for failing to show respect to him.
  • He has also lead the fight against liberal women who are “neutering men“, using examples from history (or rather, from “historical” movies like 300 and The Last Samurai) to show how the proper role of women in society is to make strong men, not get abortions and equal pay and all that socialist nonsense.
  • Did you know that donating money to Allen West’s campaign means you are standing up for God?
  • “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine”
  • Showing us that he is a far better diplomat than President Obama, West said he would have told the U.N. that the U.S. is an “Angel of Death” that will wreck “havoc and destruction” on anyone who messes with America.
  • “I’m the modern-day Harriet Tubman”
  • He told openly gay Congressman Barney Frank that he should be wearing a pink jumpsuit.
  • Accused the President of wanting to make Americans “be his slave“, through Obamacare.

And of course there is the countless examples of Islamophobia, accusing Islamic groups of trying to bring Sharia Law to the U.S., and associating all Muslims with 9/11.

You can find more insane Allen West quotes at Think Progress or by simply googling “Allen West”.

Something tells me this won’t be the last time we hear from Allen West. Until then, we always have Michele Bachmann.
