Congressman Allen West, speaking at a Lincoln Day dinner, is catching heat for saying the ideas, the “message” of Senator Harry Reid and Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz of “equality of achievement,” and “enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of America” should “get the hell out of the United States of America.” Bob Beckel goes apoplectic in that particularly gaseous Liberal way of his, and while shooting off his mouth again, accuses West of doing the same. Nevermind, that Debbie Schultz repeats again, one year after the event, that the Tea Party is responsible for the shooting of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabbie Giffords. Beckel says West is “disgraceful,” but then says, disgracefully, West is “lucky” to hold the District 22 House seat. There was no “luck” in the people of Florida choosing this America hero to represent them in Washington, D.C.
Beckel is furious that West wants the Democrat message of Reid, Pelosi and Schultz to leave our shores. He defends the Democrat right to that message, while denying West the same right.
The Five groupies have sharp retorts based in reality. I’m reminded of Congresscritter Maxine Waters saying in a House hearing with oil company execs testifying she would:
“The Liberal would be all about socializing, basically, government taking over and running all of your companies.”
That’s a message that should have no home in the House or in the U.S.
As Greg Gutfeld says, I want to hear more from West. If you are not aware of the move to redistrict Congressman West out of the House, read the details here.
