Hat Tip: Brian B.
I love this man! Would vote for him… Would follow him into battle and fight by his side… If he runs with Palin, Bachmann or Cain, I truly believe there would be no way to beat him. He’d wipe the floor with the progressives. The people love him that much. He’s smart, brave and moral – he is just what America needs. A warrior with a good and strong soul. A real man.
ALLEN WEST DELIVERS STERN LESSON ON DADT REPEAL: ISN’T THE MILITARY RIFE WITH RULES?
Posted on April 21, 2011
Allen West was discriminated against while he was in the military. He was too short to join an elite infantry group. But, he says, he was okay with it because the military is rife with rules that serve a greater purpose, the insinuation being that there is a reason for the military‘s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) policy.
That’s the point West made during a Hill hearing yesterday on implementing the repeal of DADT. The hearing featured the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and during it West questioned almost every one of them about the certain standards each branch has that prima facia might seem discriminatory.
For example, he asked if the Army still has a minimum height requirement for an elite infantry group and if the Marines still require soldiers to pass physical fitness tests. The answer, “Yes.”
In the beginning of his comments, West summed up his position like this: “The military exists to win the nation’s wars and I think when we get to the point where we are starting to discuss about how the military conforms to accommodating individual behavior that’s what I get concerned with.”

ALLEN WEST REITERATES OBAMA ‘DICTATOR’ REMARKS: ‘LOW-LEVEL SOCIALIST AGITATOR’
Recently, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) decried Obama’s “third world dictator-like arrogance.” That raised some eyebrows. So last night, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, who was a little uncomfortable with the remarks, gave West a chance to walk them back.
No way, said West:
I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist, demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America. It is not helpful for this country and it’s not going to move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I’m not going to back away from telling what the truth is.
There’s a great depth to my conviction, and part of my conviction is telling the truth. I don‘t think it’s very presidential when Barack Hussein Obama refers to my colleague, Paul Ryan, as a simple little accountant, either. So I think that when you look at what a community organizer is turning out to be, it does seem to be like a low-level socialist agitator.
