Be advised that after we mourn we are coming for all of you and political correctness will not save you. The next generation will remember this day as the second Boston Massacre but even greater, they will remember our avenging this attack.
In this special commentary, Col. Allen West reflects on the deeper significance of the Boston Marathon terrorist attack and discovers three parallels between the race organizers, the athletes and the savage or savages that carried out this horrific attack.
In a preview of the new PJ Media Next Generation TV show Allen West is joined by Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and John Phillips to discuss the situation in Mali and Algeria. Gaffney, although a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Reagan administration, faults both the Bush and Obama administration policies regarding Islamists, Sharia, and the more recent Arab Spring.
Allen West is a man with whom I would gladly share a foxhole. He’s been in many of them over the years – both as a decorated combat veteran and more recently as a Member of Congress from Florida. And when the going gets tough, he is usually the very first of the tough to get going, inspiring and leading others to do the same.
In addition to his natural leadership abilities, Rep. West has an extraordinary grasp of history, its lessons and the importance of not repeating our predecessors’ mistakes. His ability to communicate these insights is similarly exceptional. Last year, in honoring House Armed Services Chairman Howard ‘Buck’ McKeon, we at the Center for Security Policy could find no one better than Allen West to deliver a sterling, improvised benediction. That brief speech—encapsulating two centuries of American military history—is a monument of the power of forthrightness in advocating for peace through strength in the Reagan tradition.
Perhaps most importantly, Allen West has a well-calibrated and utterly dependable moral compass. Most notably, he has addressed with a clarity and integrity virtually unknown these days in official Washington about the threat posed by shariah – the totalitarian, supremacist Islamic ideology that animates and justifies jihad – and by its adherents. He has taken to task those in positions of power who, by their passivity or active support, are enabling the steady advance of such enemies, both abroad and here. This year, Rep. West rated as a ‘Champion of National Security’ in our Center for Security Policy Congressional Scorecard with a rating of 100 percent.
For all these reasons, Allen West has millions of devoted followers around the country. But he also has powerful enemies. And defeating him in this year’s election was a top priority of Democratic operatives and Islamists alike.
On Dec. 12, 2010 Rep. Allen West spoke to Americans Against Hate, an organization founded in 1998 to inform the public of the dangers of groups and people within U.S. involved in terrorism overseas. Mitt Romney could take a lesson here.
If you haven’t had your fill of one-sided debates yet this week, here’s Allen West facing off in a debate against Patrick Murphy, a war veteran against a veteran of barfights. This is a contest that Democrats have put a lot of money into in order to get rid of Allen West. And Patrick Murphy is what they got for all that money.
West interrupted his challenger twice during the forum. When Murphy said the U.S. is “spending billions of dollars a week in Iraq and Afghanistan,” West said “We’re out of Iraq.”
Champion barfighter Patrick Murphy claims that the “extremism” of the Tea Party and its non-alcoholic nature turned him off being a Republican.
“I used to be a Republican, but I got so tired of the extremism of the tea party,” said Murphy, who switched to the Democratic Party in 2011.
West later addressed the extremism charge in his closing remarks. West said he’s guided by the nation’s founding documents and the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, free markets and a strong national defense.
“If anyone says that those are extremist positions, well, I guess you’re just going to have to continue to call me extremist, because I will stand with the founding fathers on that,” West said.
In a Facebook post made today, Rep. Allen West weighed in on what his speech to the United Nations would’ve been like…
In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) “offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!
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”
At one his monthly townhall meetings in Broward County, Florida, Congressman Allen West was asked about the ‘Muslim Infiltration’ of the U.S. Government, an issue that has been in the news of late, after Congresswoman Michele Bachmann questioned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin of her possible associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bachmann did not accuse Abedin of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood, only her immediate family’s direct associations with the terrorist organization.
Frontpage’s Robert Spencer adds this-
And in Abedin’s case, there are ample reasons for raising these questions. Her father, Syed Z. Abedin, was a professor in Saudi Arabia who founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the Brotherhood’s adjunct organization for women. The Brotherhood itself is in its own words, according to a captured internal document, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.”-Robert Spencer (Source-Bachmann/Abedin)
Congressman Allen West confirmed Bachmann’s suspicions of infiltration, actually, West has been saying it for a long time, and the Democrats have been quick to call him an extremist for doing so.
West states that he has not read Bachmann’s letter, but makes her case that there needs to be deep security checks in government, and that there is indeed a sinister effort by Islamists to integrate themselves into the U.S. Government.
A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.
In a brief post on his Facebook page, West said Sunday’s results were reminiscent of the 1979 Iranian revolution that saw Islamists installed as leaders of the country.
“A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt,” West wrote. “We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident.”
Calling the Arab Spring “nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare,” West said the U.S. needs to “unequivocally reiterate” its support to Coptic Christians in the region and to Israel.
“What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama administration,” West said. “I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.
