Since yesterday was a day of the week, Tuesday to be exact, that means Rep. Allen West either did or said something stupid. That’s just how he rolls. No, he didn’t say that he was Harriet Tubman, here to rescue black liberals from the Democratic plantation. And he didn’t say that President Barack Obama wants to enslave Americans, but he did issue his own version of the speech he believes President Obama should’ve given at the United Nations.
On his Facebook page, West wrote:
My statement to the United Nations would have been, “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.”
The Angel of Death? Is he serious? Lucky for us, Mr. West will never be President, because statements like that are what inflame people, ignite tensions, and cause world wars.
West goes on to say that President Obama is apologizing for America, even though Obama did no such thing in his speech at the United Nations. West says, “[Obama] continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression.” This is an outright lie, since President Obama said, “As president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day,” followed by “And I will defend their right to do so.” What was that if not a defense of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech?
One thing’s for sure; Allen West can tell a lie quicker and with more audacity than almost anyone else on Capitol Hill. His need to ingratiate himself to his benefactors is unmatched. That’s a skill.
