ALLEN WEST TEACHES OBAMA WHAT COURAGE IS (IT’S NOT ANNOUNCING YOU’RE GAY)

May 4, 2013

By Mike Opelka

Former Republican Florida Congressman Allen West posted a brutally frank video Friday about NBA star Jason Collins and President Barack Obama’s much-publicized statements and phone call to the “courageous” basketball player. West and the president evidently have a different standard about what courage is.

Following Collins’ surprise announcement this week that he is gay, the White House responded with a statement of support. Press secretary Jay Carney said, “we commend him for his courage, and support him — uh — in this effort, and hope that his fans and his team support him going forward.”

West, a retired colonel, wondered why the Obama did not mention another man who made news on Monday: Sgt. 1st Class Greg Robinson. On the same day Collins made the announcement about his sexuality, Robinson became the first amputee to complete Army air assault school (finishing the grueling course is something West also accomplished during his military career). How big of an accomplishment is this? It’s huge. The air assault course is so tough that Robinson’s prosthetic leg broke twice over the 10 days spent rappelling down ropes, navigating obstacle courses and completing the difficult tests.

“There were no phone calls from the commander-in-chief, no magazine covers, no tweets giving him praise and accolades,” West says in the video. “However, Sgt. 1st Class Greg Robinson does not need their confirmation, he is an American hero.”

The second part of the West video details the story of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a decorated Army officer who has been removed from the Joint Forces Staff College because he warned about jihadists that could be lurking inside the U.S. Military. Dooley’s story is also worth watching.

Joe Foss was a true American hero; however, very few know of his service to this nation. Aside from being a brigadier general, World War II flying ace, and Medal of Honor recipient, Foss was a governor, congressman, and football commissioner. Col. Allen B. West reminds viewers about the the enduring vision and legacy of Foss, and more.
