Allan West poppin’ that yang about the president once again
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) can’t seem to stay out of the spotlight, for better or for worse.
During a Sunday rally with constituents in a newly drawn district he wants to represent, West accused President Barack Obama of wanting to enslave the American public.
“He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American,” West said, according to a WPTV report. “He’d rather you be his slave.”
West is running against Martin County Sheriff Bob Crowder in the Republican primary, set for Aug. 14. The WPTV report quotes Crowder saying he is “offended” by the things that come out of West’s mouth.
“I think trying to label some people that he would have to work with in Congress as being Communists … I just think that’s the wrong thing to do,” Crowder said.
West raised some eyebrows in April when he claimed as many as 80 House Democrats are Communists. His remarks came after he compared being gay to picking a favorite ice cream flavor, said that a motorcycle was like touching his wife, and warned that people would be on “a suicide mission” if they challenged his support for the House GOP budget plan.
Another clown appearance by West in order to keep his name in the news, yet still nothing about what he intends to do for the people of his district in Florida. Ho sit down!
