Bad For The GOP: Allen West’s Hate Speech

BY BUDDY NEVINS

Something very dangerous is brewing in U. S. House District 22: Allen West.

Parts of West’s campaign are nothing more than hate speech.

Allen West

He says Moslems have been damned by God. Anybody who gave to this bigot should demand their money back.

His vehemence against anyone who practicing Moslem is disgusting and not worthy of the Republican Party, which always claims to have a Big Tent.

Maybe this is where the Republican Party is headed.

His website is filled with rhetoric more reminiscent of a racist than of a congressional candidate.

He refuses to capitalize Muhammad and Islam on his website, making an editorial comment that they are not worthy.

Worst of all is the following statement on his website. It has no place in politics:

“Genesis Chapter 16, verses 11-12 states, ‘And the Angel of the Lord said to her (Hagar): Behold you are with child, and you shall bear a son, you shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against everyman, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.’

Ishmael of course became the beginning of the Arab people.and God’s word is immutable truth.

In West’s America, we should write off the millions of law-abiding Arabs in this country because God supposedly damned them!

I wonder if Tripp Scott law firm’s managing partner Ed Pozzuoli knew when he gave West $2,300 he would be furthering this kind of hate speech? 

Does Wayne Huizenga Jr. and Sr., who each gave $2,300, approve of this trash?

What about Fred Perry of the Bank of America, who gave nearly $5,000 to West’s campaigns? 

Or The Regional Republican Club of Coral Springs? Or a physician at the Fort Lauderdale Eye Institute? Or dentists at Nova Southeastern dental school?

All are West contributors.  

Years ago, racists used the Bible to prove that segregation was a proper way of life.

Exodus 33:16 was a popular quotation of Southern bigots: “So shall we be separated, and all of Thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.”

A local powerbroker in the early 1970s insisted during an interview that the Bible proved that segregation was proper.  He quoted the exact chapter of Genesis that West uses on his campaign website to damn Arabs. The powerbroker said the chapter “obviously” referred to blacks.

Last week I got a call from a major local political contributor. He said he gave money to West and then went to a speech given by the candidate.

He came away disgusted. This guy runs a business and has Moslem employees. He was ashamed he ever gave money to West.

There is no doubt we are at war with radical Islamists, who would like to crush anyone who disagrees with their Seventh Century view of the world.

We are not alone in this war. Suicide bombers today struck at the Moscow subway. They have attacked Spain and England.

I believe we need to take drastic steps, such as stepped up surveillance and trying terrorists in military courts.

Bigotry is not the answer. It is wrong to label an entire religion as damned by God.

America has many friends in the Moslem world. We will never beat the terrorists without the help of  these friends.

Make no mistake: America can not go to war with the entire Moslem world. 

Allen West is wrong for the Republican Party.  He would take the Big Tent and shrink it to a pup tent, which would fit only those approved by Allen West.

Moslems need not apply.

    West was a nut job when he ran 2 years ago. Now he’s a nut job with lots more money because the Republicans think Ron Klein is vulnerable.

    We he isn’t vulnerable to someone like this.

    I say let them continue to send this idiot all the money in the world. They deserve to have it wasted.

  2. Let West Reply says:

    Buddy:
    I have met Col. West. Though he seems to be a level-headed reasonable person, your portrayal of him above gives me concern.
    Would you allow Col. West to respond to your article to be posted following your article?
    Perhaps he can explain your assertions or confirm them.

    FROM BUDDY: Look at his campaign website. That is where the statements I quoted are posted.
    Allen West is welcome to write here anytime.

  3. Brucie Boye says:

    Who ever wrote this article is either a former democrat, current RINO, or both. What a shame that we have the hottest candidate in the country in LTC Allen West and this idiot that inked this piece is trashing him. The left also will go to any extreme to talk down fine contributing members in our community. This guy probably had his lunch money stolen everyday as a kid in school.

  4. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    America has become a lunatic asylum. When the Republicans passed the tax cut for the wealthy that helped precipitate the nation’s deep slide into insolvency, where were the tea party protesters? When George W. Bush and his henchmen lied us into a war that sent thousands of sons and daughters to leave their blood and limbs and sanity in the sands of Babylon, where were the tea party protesters?

    When the scandal of Abu Ghraib broke and the American people learned that our President, Vice President, and Attorney General abrogated the Geneva Conventions and allowed America to torture its captives, where were the Tea Party protesters?

    During the six years the Congress was controlled by the Republicans they did everything they could to enhance the lot of the rich while at the same time severely damaging the middle class. Their “fair trade” policies cost America two million jobs. Where were the tea party protesters?

    Maybe our madness is a symptom of our need to escape reality. Even so, the reality is there and persists and becomes even more maddening.

  5. Fred Perry says:

    Mr. Nevins:

    It is sad to see that the contributions of private citizens as my self are fodder for YOUR hate speech.

    But since you have raised the issue, I am well aware of our next congressman’s stance on radical Islam and I am proud to support his candidacy. If that makes me a bigot by association then in your world view, I am a bigot.

    At the same time, I am the father of a 21 year old young man that, as a college sophomore, took a 3.4 GPA, and enlisted in the Marine Corps, doing his patriotic duty; to a country he loves dearly.

    You see, Mr. Nevins, as a fifth grade student at Pine Crest School, he was home sick when he watched as aircraft were flown into the World Trade center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania by Islamic Terrorists.

    He now serves quietly in the 3rd Infantry Battalion, Ninth Marines. He has been very focused in his duties. do you know that, he and his rifle squad are serious about their hand to hand combat training? They know that they may not have the full support of air and naval power that their predeccessors have had in the past, because the politicians at home may not have the guts to support them. He and his Marines may have to fight with their hands, their boots, their teeth, their bayonets or their trenching tools and; they will know how to use them.

    Col. Allen West will be in Washignton to dspeak for my son and his fellow warriors; sailors, airmen and Coast Guardsmen.

    Colonel West knows what it is to fight for one’s country and to sacrifice for his men, America’s sons and daughters. I am proud to support this most remarkable candidate.

    Mr. Nevins, are you a warrior? Do you know any warriors? Have you served your country in combat?

    Allen West is a warrior and he speaks for me and many many Americans. Despite what congressman Klein and you or his other proxies might say form the sidelines.

  6. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    Philosophically speaking, Christian ethics are severely outdated. Since the Enlightenment, the Western World has seen far superior ethicists to Jesus of Nazareth.

    Kant and Mill, for example, created life-affirming ethical systems that can be applied to a wider range of people without destroying their culture or beliefs about where the universe came from and what kind of sex they should consider perverse. Truly, there is no reason to cling to the old way any longer.

    We have adopted science and reason in every other aspect of our lives… yet somehow we have retained Bronze Age ethics?

    It makes no sense.

    Why should we continue to believe it is better to be tribalists than to be humanists? This mentality is not compatible with a just, egalitarian society.

    Besides, Jesus may tell us to love one another, but he also says we should maintain the Old Testament in its entirety – no cherry-picking – which means we technically must condone rape, incest, slavery, and genocide (!). If we can do away with these parts (and we have), why not do away with the whole thing?

  7. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    Fred;

    I suppose this is all in not, but what the hell…

    In retort to flag waving, chest beating, over the top vomitous stupidity, I offer this…

    True, This! —
    Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
    The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
    The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
    But taking sorcery from the master-hand
    To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
    The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
    States can be saved without it!

  8. Helene says:

    I will continue to support Alan West over Ron Klein (I voted for Klein in the last 2 elections.) I am voting for Alan’s policies which are those which made America great for 230+ years. If he can fight a war, then he can fight in Washington against the gov’t takeover of our rights and lives and income. That is what this election is about.

  9. JACK GILLIES says:

    Who is this clown Buddy Nevins? Allen West is going to Washington DC to help save America. People like Nevins should be thankful for men like West. While the LTC was putting his life on the line overseas in the Army this guy was probably hiding behind his pen still living in his mothers house. Allen West speaks the “TRUTH” everywhere he goes. Long live Allen West and the “American Dream”.

  10. Big Tasty says:

    At last there’s someone that isn’t afraid to call out the enemy. Thank You Allen West for having the courage to point out exactly who that is…

  11. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    Hey Jack;

    Is TRUTH anymore truthful than truth? Just wondering if the UPPERCASE had anything to do with it.

    As to the American Dream…

    So much for those “socialist” Europeans and those “backward” Asians, hm?
    We can do better than this.

    Miscellany:

    *Only 18% of Americans own passports and bother to travel outside of the US.

    * 85% of US soldiers in Iraq believe that they are there to get revenge for 9/11.

    * New international student enrollment in US grad schools has decreased by 6%, because of xenophobic post-9/11 US visa restrictions, jacked-up tuition fees and better educational opportunities in the EU and Asia.

    So no, not everyone wants to come here anymore, because it’s become a land of incredibly limited opportunity, and we’ve lowered our educational standards.

    Have you considered a Village People tribute band? I hope that Gunny Sergeant Mullen plays the part of the Indian. I wanna see her in assless chaps..

  15. Gabriel Jose Carrera, Esq. says:

    Dear sir,

    As an attorney serving the south Florida community, muslums, Christians, and those of the Jewish faith, I must state that your article was very unfair and lopsided. I reviewed Col. West’s website and I did not see the hate you reported in your article.

    I am quite suprised that your editor did not have you tone down your partisan rheteric. I am registered as an NPA in Broward in Dist. 22, and I am not afiliated with any political parties. The rants in this piece is something I see on Twitter or MySpace rather than a major periodical.

    For your next article I encourage you to be more open minded and less partisan. Thank you for allowing me to post my thoughts!

  16. Jeff says:

    So, let the Moslems vote for Ron Klein…..KLEIN!

  17. Jack Gillies says:

    HEY CHAZ,
    Are you a college professor? I’m not. The only reason I ask is that sounds like you are.

  18. Mike says:

    Wow, that was quite an attack on Col. West. He must be doing better than I thought to rate this kind of assault. Thanks for the help, your aticle has really re-energized his supporters!! You sure know how to stir up a hornets nest.Nobody ever fell asleep reading your column but I’ll bet a couple of them have keeled over. Keep up the good work.

  19. Git R Done says:

    Hey Brucie Boye!!!
    Nevins is a good guy and he just reports it like it is, Git over it and quit knocking him. It’s a shame you don’t understand Government and the true things that happen in the real world. He does and reports it like it happen. Also, No, Nevins never did drugs you MORON, I’ve known him his whole life and he’s not like that…

  20. cap10mike says:

    What is becoming TRULY dangerous in this country is the proliferation of political correctness which not only creates a chilling effect on our First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, but also leads to such atrocities as the Fort Hood massacre by a (dare I say it?) a Muslim extremist.

    FROM BUDDY: Isn’t it all these people writing comments who would like to curb my freedom of speech?

  21. Brucie Boye says:

    Hey Git R Done,
    Maybe your the one on drugs then. I’m sorry Buddy Boy.

  22. EveB says:

    Mr. Nevins: You and your associates probably think there will be peace in the Middle East when Israel gives her enemies just a little more land. After all, Israel is the problem, not the followers of the Koran, who are just doing what they are told…kill the Jews (then the Christians, Hindus, not-religious-enough Muslims, etc).
    Being politically correct, or appeasing those who have no intention of befriending you, will not stop radical Muslims from their goal to destroy you. Lt Col West understands who the enemy is and prefers eliminating the enemy before the enemy eliminates more Americans and Israelis. If that is being hateful, then so be it.

  23. cap10mike says:

    Why is it that hate-mongers like Bill Maher and John Kerry can “get a pass” (without comment) when they preach about the dangers of Christian and Jewish fundamentalism, and even make tasteless jokes about “bumping off” former President Bush, but when a true American patriot like Allen West brings up the very REAL danger of Muslim extremism, he’s suddenly labeled as a “nut job?” If we pretend that the problem doesn’t exist, it will never get resolved.

  24. Pedro says:

    We have to support Allen West as to get people of his caliber in Congress on Nov 2 is the only hope we have to start getting our country back.

    The Muslim threat inside our country is real and at the same time formidable.

    Lets open our eyes and realize than unless we act with discernment we can be severely injured by Radical Islam living within the country

  25. Vik says:

    He is amazing for the GOP !!! Go west !!! 5 west voters in my home !!!

  26. Kukla says:

    I hate islam for what they stand.. If 9/11 happened to you, you would feel the same. I don’t wish the upon anyone but all the Muslim terrorists :)

  27. Klein is Lost says:

    Klein is a clown, who needs to be gone, He sold us down the river like the rest of the Dems, for their skewed liberal socialist vision. I need to defintely send money to West, thanxs for reminding me of this race. Chaz just because you post often and are obnoxious does not make what you say right. Actually it takes away from your point, your tone and foolish attempts at acting intellectual. You actually come across like most liberals, as a pompous arrogant jerk who feels he is right because he is so much smarter then everyone else. Which in case you do no understand yet, makes you ignorant. Chaz leave town with the dem politicians you worship when we throw them out of office in November.

  28. Broward GOP says:

    Buddy,

    You ran into the West not jobs. They spend more time blogging then campaigning. Don’t worry they do this on every blog.

  29. Conservative Revolution 2010 says:

    I find you liberal-moderate fruitcakes very disturbing. You clowns are probably for amnesty, sharia law, and any other issue that would take down America. You moderates pretending to be Republicans are pukes. I have more respect for the liberal Democrats than you idiots. This piece of trash publication is a joke. Hey Buddy are you a little light in the loafers?

  30. DEREK says:

    Buddy,
    Your thinly veiled partisan article is of no meaning. It serves only to reveal you as the hack you are. I don’t even need to look back through your writings to be sure that at some point you were among the cretins on the left who argued that those who oppose Obama’s destructive policies only oppose him based on their “hidden racist beliefs” etc, etc. everyone who opposes illegal immigration is a racist…etc. People like you truly sicken me.
    This silly article of yours is so contrived it is laughable. Besides, it isn’t as if anyone, with at least half a brain, takes anything written in the Sentinel regarding politics seriously. Lies and distortions directed at conservatives are par for the course from the writers at your workplace. That is why many like myself have cancelled our subscriptions to your newspaper long ago. You are committed liberals. Everyone knows it. everyone also knows the liberal media outlets such as yours can’t even exist without lying and distorting the issues.
    Say hi to Ron Klein for me when you have dinner with him next time. Let him know he will be gone in November and a sigh of relief will be heard in South Florida when an actual patriot, a student of history and an American hero takes his seat. Instead of that Nancy Pelosi lap poodle. We can hardly wait.
    I also find your repetitive use of the word Moslem curious. Did that just come out in a memo from the Center For American Progress or something? I am sure you are on the list. Spare us all your sanctimony.

  31. Dmitry Levin says:

    I second Mr. Perry: if Allen West is an anti-muslim (see, I also use lowercase), so am I! I would not emulate Chaz’s scholarly exercises in Bible knowledge (he DOES sound like an egg-head professor hasanning if not from the minaret, then from his .edu ivory tower): for me Hagar is not the reason. After what “fringe” followers of islam have done to the whole world in the last 70-80 years (no need to recall Saladin) from collaboration with Hitler to pummeling Israel kindergartens with missiles, they ALL have lost presumption of innocence privilege. In my life time I had a great Muslim friend – he became the one after we had a discussion where he said that he wholeheartedly supported Israel right to exist. When “mainstream” muslims do the same I’ll write them in capitals. Until then we need Allen West in DC to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic. Allen, you know, I am 100% behind you!!!

  32. 1ST SGT USMC Jerry says:

    You have got to be kidding me!?! Read the Koran and learn their teachings. We, the Christians, are infidels and if we fail to convert we are to be destroyed. If they follow the true teachings then it is this simple… There is much more to this and not enough room to explain except for get out of your shell or quit hugging trees!! I lived, breathed, and ate with the enemy and it dam# near killed me!

  33. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    Mr. Perry;

    Perhaps you might consider putting down that American Flag of yours for just 15 minutes and pick up a 20th century history book.

    Study up on this little gem known as “Kristallnacht”…

    We’ve all bore witness to goons hurling venomous slurs at congressmen like the civil rights hero John Lewis and the openly gay Barney Frank.

    Reports of death threats and vandalism stretched from Arizona to Kansas to upstate New York… In fact, the F.B.I. and the local police had to get into the act to protect members of Congress and their families.

    How curious that a mob fond of likening Obama to Hitler knows so little about history that it doesn’t recognize its own small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.

    The weapon of choice for vigilante violence at Congressional offices has been a brick hurled through a window.

    So far.

  34. Jim Black says:

    Dear Mr. Nevins,

    Just a few facts about Islam and the Quran.

    Perhaps you are not aware that the goal of Islamics is for their religion (sharia) to prevail over all others. This is mandated by “Allah” in the Quran (Surah 48:28). Allah (via Muhammed) also commands muslims not to take Jews or Christians as friends (Surah 5:51,80).

    Muslims are free to come here and worship, proselytize and build Mosques. Christians are not free to do either in muslim nations.

    The Jewish prophetic scriptures record that the Islamic nations surrounding Israel will attack her in the latter days (Ezek 38:1-17, Zech. 12:2,3). This will come at a time when Israel is dwelling safely (Ezek. 38:11,14).

    The picture is of Israel being restored to her homeland and then invaded by these nations in the end times, which I believe are near.

    Perhaps you don’t believe the Bible, but I would just say to stay tuned.

    You may disagree with Lt. Col. West’s views, but he is dead on about Islam. Check out those prophecies.

  35. USMC says:

    All of you including the idiot who wrote this bilge are RACISTS!

    You are just like the Democrats of old. You would make the KKK proud!

    Back in the day the Democrats terrorist wing the KKK went after Republicans in the South. They were mostly black.

    This man you persecute should be thanked for defending your sorry a$$es from the Muslims you defend.

    To the one bitching about our world standings. Damn near everything you whine about is run by Progressives. You know when we had better standings when you Progressives weren’t running things.

    When more men like West are in DC the better we’ll be.

    I don’t know who’s worse for America the Islamists trying to kill us or the Progressives. Well, according to Code Pink they’re both on the same side.

    It’s no wonder you hate West apart from being a racist yourself he attacks your friends the terrorists.

    Semper Fi, Lt. Col. West

  36. Viet Nam Vet says:

    Question: Where were all those patriotic American Muslims when the rest of the Muslim world was dancing in the streets celebrating 9/11?
    Maybe you should take a little trip to Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, etc. and wear a large American flag pin on your collar. Want to bet you will be greeted by peace loving Muslims?
    Chaz, most of your data is from 2003. Guess what, it’s 2010 now.
    The pen is mightier than the sword, but I’ll take the sword when it comes to defending the US, the Constitution and your right to free speech. Anyone willing to place a bet that Chaz & Buddy would run away if threatened? Especially if the person doing the threatening was wearing a beard and Muslim clothing?

  37. Viet Nam Vet says:

    “So no, not everyone wants to come here anymore, because it’s become a land of incredibly limited opportunity, and we’ve lowered our educational standards.”

    Yes, thanks to you and your liberal friends. So, maybe your ideas aren’t as good as you think they are.

  38. Brucie Boye says:

    Several of my friends said that you have not posted their comments. What a hack you are. Don’t worry though they are sending them to me and I will start a campaign about your liberal partisan behavior, both on the web and around town. You are a disgrace!

  39. On behalf of many says:

    Buddy:
    I love your site. I really do. However, will there come a point where the Chaz character is limited in his postings?
    He seems to have no life other than posting on the internet. One would think that if he really were a genius he could find a more productive way to spend his time other than compulsively posting on blogs.
    I would bet that your readers are fed up with his chronic postings.
    My suggestion is limiting him to one post per week.

  40. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    @brucie…

    Now we KNOW you are lying… You have no friends…

  41. Dee Dunn says:

    Not all Muslims are terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim.

    It is remarkable that the very people who don’t tolerate the spanking of children open their arms to a culture that regularly murders their women – mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts – for something less than what Monica Lewinski did under the desk in the oval office with and for Bill Clinton.

    I tolerate any religion that is peaceful and respectful to human human rights of their people. Islam is neither of those.

    Get educated now.

  42. Dee Dunn says:

    I fully support LTC Allen West. FULLY!

  43. R. Mullen; Capt. USMC Ret. says:

    Mr. Nevins:

    I could not help but note the unique spelling of the word Muslim as “Moslem” in your article.

    You are a clever fellow. Breaking new ground all the time, aren’t you?

    R. Mullen

  44. Doc says:

    “The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” – Winston Churchill

  45. Susie says:

    While we have muslims living in this country and most are peaceful, it was the muslims that caused 9/11, it is the muslims that want to kill the Christians and Jews. They are our enemies whether some like it or not. We still do have freedom of speech in this country and the left seems to have more freedom than most. I don’t believe Col. West to be racist.

    FROM BUDDY: Everybody has freedom of speech on the Internet.
    Even you.

  46. We The People says:

    Buddy the Hack!

    Judging from your writing I would assume you graduated from a online college of journalism at best.

    It must get you and the soros sycophants mad to know you have lost this district. Your misrepresentations of Mr West are sophomoric. You are a racist who points the racism finger at those who support the rule of law.
    You are un American and a doubt you have made your family proud with your un-profession hatchet jobs. As a journalist you have never sent anyone running to the dictionary.

    You are a Hack Buddy, and all of South Florida knows it but you. Your writing is confirmation of the choas and loss of control you progressives have on the people and your political presence. It is over for your kind.

    Remember in November.

    FROM BUDDY:
    I love this one. I am UnAmerican because I dare attack Allen West.
    No politician is above criticism in this country. It is what makes the United States great.

  47. Debbie Washington Hts. Girl says:

    Dear Mr. Nevins (and is that your REAL name, and you are certainly no “buddy” of mine.) Since when is “Truth” the new hate speech? Lt. Col. Allen West, a steadfast and loyal patriot of the USA has fought to defend this country in an overseas arena, and now he is running for Congress to save this country from the likes of idiots such as yourself right here at home. I bet if we dug a bit deeper we would find that you are on the payroll of some islamic organization such as cair or some other islamic hate-group tied to terrorism. Whose pocket are you in Mr. Nevins? Or, is it that your drug days are still not behind you, and you cannot see clearly through the haze and fog of the islamic propaganda that is blanketing this great country like a plague? Lt. Col. Allen West needs no defending of his honor, his courage, and his desire to protect the USA as per his oath to uphold the Constitution. Can we say the same about you, and your patriotism to the USA? I suggest you seek psychiatric help as you are the one who is so filled with anger and hate, most likely directed as yourself for knowing that you are nothing but an impotent little fool, and a useful idiot to those who wish to take down and destroy the USA. It’s always your kind when the going gets rough to break down and cry for help. You’d be better off selling ice cream than being a journalist (which you are hardly, anyway.)

  48. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To Buddy Nevins and Chaz Stevens, Genius (Genius?! Hahahahahaha! Tell me dear Chaz, just which of the 3 classifications of genius are you claiming to be? [and via which test standard?]),

    Hate speech? Are you refusing to take your medication again boys? You know mother’s rules for staying in the basement; you must take your meds.

    [Sorry folks for digressing right out of the gate with Bevis and Butthead]

    To continue -

    I take great umbrage in both of you for your -

    Lack of intelligence (i.e.: I think that means you’re both dullards)
    Lack of truthfulness (i.e.: I think that means you’re both deceitful)
    Lack of decorum (i.e.: I think that means you’re both uncouth hogs)
    Lack of vision (i.e.: I think that means you’re both struck with ablepsia)

    Let get the ad hominem junk out of the way, OK? So as not to be accused of just being a poison pill floating down your over-stuffed blogger’s throat(s) [visuals, you gotta luv 'em], let me point out that your concept (on just one point of many) of “humanism” is pure fecal material (and these are my words, not some infantile cut-and-paste job from some inept web site):

    Humanism in its pure sense (not sugar-coated or abstract), is a philosophy based in a ‘man first’ ideology (negates any notion of god above) of global human satiation over individual achievements of personal efforts and beliefs. Since this is not the nature of man (it is more applicable to primative insect life [like ants] to sustain continuance), it would amount to forced worldwide atheistic communism under one system of governance. Humanism is behind what would be considered the ‘New World Order’ by those that would wish to dominate all of humanity. Therefore humanism is a two-sided coin of guile; (1) as a tool of global domination over the indoctrinated, and (2) as an unfair and unrealistic form to equalize man’s level of comfort by those not willing to expend effort in optimizing their lives, having been duped in their own stupidity that man, as a whole, is all.

    Eh, bunk-buddies, sounds waaaaay more advanced than Christanity, right?

    Anyway, dear Buddy and Chaz, the aforementioned should clean your sinuses for about 10 seconds, but wait, there’s more, so hold on to your frilly knickers and strap-in.

    The great American patriot, LTC Allen West, is of such a high caliber that you two (or one, as the case may be) wouldn’t be fit to scrap his boots of liberal dung accumulated while visiting your basement lair. Just to clarify, I’m thinking Nathan Hale and General Patton wrapped-up in one. LTC West has more dignity, power, intellect, patriotism, commitment, decorum, honor, respect, loyalty, and devotion to God than any person I have had the good luck to meet. LTC West should actually run for President. (Now I’ve done it, you’re gonna have nightmares tonight, right?)

    Anyway Dorothy, scoop up Toto and click your heels, because you’re not in Kansas anymore. Nancy Pelosi’s flying monkey troops are about to crash and burn come November.

    Let’s talk again real soon. I’m sure if you spent some time with me (but only if I’m in a good mood) you’d be able to cancel both your shrink visits and metrosexual classes (which one of you goes where; or is it a package deal?). Consider it the greatest gift offer you’ve ever received (short of your soul(s) being scrubbed clean).

    Mr. Nevins you seem to have forgotten our history. On September 11, 2001 we were attacked by radical Islamic terrorist. They were funded by more radicals outside of our borders; in fact they are still funding activities in our country like the 28k sq ft Mosque being built in Pompano. This being the same Mosque that sent over their Imam for the invocation at the Pompano Beach commission meeting. Why aren’t you spending more time investigating the facts like this? West is at true American hero. We are being attacked by a radical group who seeks to destroy our government and radically change our way of life to something like they have in the Middle East. Take a look at Europe Mr. Nevins it is happening right before our. Maybe you like the idea of beheadings and women being tortured by men? Maybe it’s the idea of children having the Koran beaten into their memory, or Sharia law as the supreme law of the land? After all according to our current administration our Constitution is a living document and is open to change through interpretation.

I am happy to find someone who has the common sense and the guts to stand on truth and to hell with being politically correct. West has been in the trenches with this enemy and I believe he may know more than the writer of this, which is nothing more than a character assassination. When they fear you they attack you.

    FROM BUDDY:

    What amazes me is the anger of these comments. These are a bunch of people angry and upset about what? That a blogger criticized Allen West?

    Is anybody’s life going to change if Allen West wins or loses the race?

    Allen West is in politics, folks. He is going to be criticized. Get used to it.

    No politician is above criticism.

    Many of these comments are not from the House District 22. They are not even from Florida.

    When all else fails, they label their opponent, in this case me, “a liberal.”

    If you know anything about my history, and it is very public, I am far from a liberal.

    But liberals passed Medicare and Social Security. If any of these Allen West fans are willing to forgo Medicare and Social Security because it is a liberal government program, please contact me. That’s news!

    Allen West does not walk on water because he was in the military. The Islamic crazy who shot all those soliders in Texas was in the military.

    Military service does not convey infallibility on anyone. Military service is honorable and deserves respect, but it does not automatically mean the person should be elected.

    Some of Allen West’s ideas deserve consideration. I have always liked a flat tax. Honestly, it has little chance of passing.

    Maybe this is the wrong time for it anyway. What would elimination of the real estate deduction under a flat tax do to the South Florida real estate market, which is already reeling?

    Allen West is vague about whether he would vote for oil drilling off Florida. Since he is running in a beachfront district, he needs to be pinned down on this subject.

    I believe that Allen West’s rhetoric on Moslems is overblown, reeking of bias and a discredit to his views on protecting this nation from terrorism.

    I find it the ultimate irony that Allen West uses a passage from the Bible to justify his views on Moslems that segregationists used 60 years ago to justify keeping the Allen West’s of this world from voting.

    Would these folks who comment here make every Moslem in the United States a second-class citizen with fewer rights than they have? Would they rewrite the Constitution to exclude Moslems? Should Moslems have Second Amendment rights?

    There are millions of Moslems in this country, folks. America has become a very diverse country. Much as some who comment here would like to get rid of all the Moslems, it is never going to happen. Many are citizens and many others were born right here in the USA.

    All these angry comments overlook the fact that Allen West has a good chance of being elected. Browardbeat.com is not going to change that.

    Its in the numbers. Voters are split equally between Republicans and Democrats. Independents are leaning Republican this year. The race is a tossup at this point.

    The sad thing is that unless Allen West cools his rhetoric, he will be a marginalized figure that will accomplish nothing in Washington.

  57. Buddy Nevins says:

    Let me add, I conceed that Moslems comprise the bulk of the terrorists today. They are not alone.

    Just today, the feds unsealed an indictment against a Christian terrorist group largely in the Midwest. And I quote:

    “According to the indictment unsealed this morning in court, the nine members of the group — eight men and one woman — planned to “levy war” against the U.S. government. To incite such a war, the group planned to murder law enforcement officials and then follow up their initial attacks with a separate attack on the fallen officers’ funeral(s), where a large number of law enforcement personnel would no doubt be gathered.”

    Of course, we all remember Timothy McVeigh, a veteran convicted of blowing up the federal building in Oklahoma City.

  58. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    BTW, as a minimum, a required correction to Buddy’s illiterate use of nomenclature -

    LTC West is not going to take office and seat himself as a “politician” come November; he is going to ‘borrow a seat from the people’ of District 22 as a servant in representation of their wishes.

    Are we clear now Buddy? The chair is the same (personally, I’d sanitize it first though), but the being occupying it after November will be of a whole other cut of cloth; one of humility and strength, hemmed by patriotism.

    LTC West is only using history as a guide to set a proposed plan of future conduct of the United States.
    In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim extremists. We did nothing.
    Throughout 1980′s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim extremists, and still we did nothing.
    1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim extremists, and we continued to do nothing.
    1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year-old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim extremists, and we did very little.
    1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed over Lockerbie, Scotland by Muslim extremists. We did nothing.
    1990, we finally invaded Iraq; not for us, but to come to the aid of our ally Kuwait. At the close of the Gulf War, we turned Iraq back over to Sadaam Hussein and continued to do nothing for almost twelve years, when a group of Islamic terrorists slaughtered almost 3,000 American citizens. THEN we got serious.
    A lot of people blamed Bush for 9/11, saying that he should have known. Fair enough, perhaps he should have, but after that date and using that experience to guide him, we were safe for the following 7 years plus of his presidency.
    What about the Obama presidency, which has the benefit of 9/11’s memory as an example?
    May 20 – The FBI and NYPD busted a four-man homegrown Islamic terror cell that was plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues while simultaneously shooting a plane out of the sky.
    June 1 – Little Rock, Arkansas: deadly shooting at a military recruiting center by Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (take a wild guess at his religious affiliation).
    November 5 – The Fort Hood mass shooting by a Muslim officer which resulted in the killing 13 people and wounding 30 others.
    December 25 – failed Christmas Day airliner bomb attack, again, by a Muslim.
    After all these attacks, both accomplished and attempted (and I probably missed a few), this administration still can’t use the term “Muslim terrorist.” Does anyone feel any safer?
    LTC West is doing nothing more than addressing this very real problem rather than turning a blind eye to it like the Obama administration.

    I want to make sure I understand this:

    The anti-capitalist / G-9 / World Bank protestors are exclusively from “the left,” but their violence and vandalism at every event doesn’t tarnish those on “the left” in any way.

    The “weather underground” protestors (also from “the left”) blew stuff up, but their acts are not imputed to those on “the left.”

    It’s acceptable to call Bush a nazi for 6.5 years, but completely absurd (and racist) to dare call Obama a nazi.

    Virtually every terrorist attack for the past ten years (actually, much longer than that) has been committed by Muslims in the name of religion, but you’re a racist and xenophobe if you dare use “Islamic” and “terrorist” in the same sentence.

    Millions of U.S. citizens are against Obamacare, but everyone of them is a lunatic and racist since a handful of idiots made racist comments and death threats.

    Finally, if you’re against Obamacare, you’re a racist – even if you support West (who appears to be a minority) for Congress.

    Do I have it right?

    BTW, I’m a registered independent and have been for 15+ years. I know very little about Mr. West, but I’m tired of the double standard perpetuated by the media and followed by many of the commentators.

    FROM BUDDY:

    “Virtually every terrorist attack…”

    Hmmmm.

    What about the terrorist anthrax attacks on the U. S. Mail. An anglo-American Christian is accused by the FBI, although he died before being charged.

    What about the Oklahoma City bombing?

    What about the Christians charged this week with plotting to kill police officers?

    What about the Atlanta Olympics bomber, who was a white Christian?

    I could go on…especially in other countries. Ireland, where terrorist Christians killed each other for generations. Spain, where Basque terrorists plant bombs. Japan, where wacky cultists put poison in the subway system.

    No doubt, there is a group of Islamic terrorists intent on destroying the western way of life. They are a major, major threat.

    Damning an entire religion, as Allen West did, for the terrorism of a few is not the way to win this war.

    I would like for a credible journalist to flesh out the Allen West story concerning his service in the military — what he was accused of, the results of the investigation, etc. I read contradictory comments about it on the blogs, but they don’t add up to a credible account.

    Unfortunately, the local writers are so biased on the subject of Allen West, or come across as such, that any story, even if complete and accurate in fact, will be suspect in the minds of many readers. I had hoped that maybe Buddy would flesh out the facts.

    In defense of Buddy, I usually find him informative and balanced in his reporting. That’s why I check in every day. This particular post looks more like something that Sam Fields would write. Fields is weak with his facts and history.

    As for Chaz Stevens, he’s as fraudulent and dishonest as the people he accuses of wrongdoing. He “borrows” other person’s work and claims it as his own. He gets off putting other people down. His work is sloppy. It’s just a matter of time before it all comes down.

  74. READ THE COMMENT! says:

    Buddy,
    You can take things out of context and make writings and scripture say what you want. Please read the entire text and understand that this was West’s stand on Israel. I am sure that he would rather stand with Israel and have all of the Jewish voters on his side in the election.

    From his blog:
    Israel
    About 62 years ago, the world came together and established something that was very long overdue, the State of Israel. When one considers the travails of the Jewish people since the 7th century, it should bring shame upon the face of the world. These persecutions began with them being forced out of the Saudi peninsula and the Levant by muhammad and his successors. The horrors of the inquisition in Spain among other wrongs brought upon the Jews in early Europe followed. When we failed to learn from that lesson, the world would witness the supreme horror of the Holocaust in Europe. Finally, we learned the lesson. We made a commitment and established a Jewish homeland, fully recognized.

    Now we face the resurrection of the original enemy of the Jewish people, a resurgent islamic fundamentalism evidencing itself in totalitarian, imperialist design. This time it has morphed itself using 21st century technologies, yet still retaining a 7th century mentality, utilizing terrorism internationally to promote its perverse aims. One of those objectives is the destruction of the State the world agreed to support when creating, Israel.

    In keeping with previous traditions established by muhammad, the modern islamic warriors promote taqiyya, lying to promote islam. They also, just as muhammad, use the Treaty of Hudaybiyya as a model to delay and deceive their enemies until they are ready to strike. Under Yasser Arafat some 200 agreements were never honored.

    Why would we trust any word coming from the mouth of the psychopathic delusional leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? The mad mullahs, insane imams, and combative clerics are again calling for the supremacy of islam, no different from earlier centuries.

    Israel faces groups such as Hamas, which in its charter commits to the destruction of Israel. They face Iran, committed to destroying the Jewish state and driving its people into the sea. When asked to depart from southern Lebanon, Israel complied, yet they now face Hezbollah in the north. In Egypt, the Muslim brotherhood is complicit in enabling Hamas to receive material support and funding through the series of tunnels.

    And there are still those who demand that even more land be ceded by Israel and settlements halted? The end result will be a country with the width comparable to the distance from New York’s JFK to LaGuardia airports. Each time Israel has given back terrain, it has become a launching point for terrorist attacks.

    We are dealing with an enemy that has no regard nor respect for negotiations, compromises, and certainly not appeasement. As a matter of fact it is deemed weakness and only encourages them more so.

    I do not support any creation of a Palestinian state, to do so would be to create a terrorist state. There is already a state for the Arabic people residing in the region called Palestine, Jordan. If the Arabs can build an indoor ski slope in Dubai, they can resolve the issue of their Arab brothers and sisters. Instead, they use them as pawns in an international game of extortion and use the subsidies provided not for humanitarian gain but for more weapons, for jihad.

    I do not support any division of Jerusalem. If I recall from history and the Old Testament, David, Son of Israel built Jerusalem and his son Solomon made it great. The muslim claims to Jerusalem are based upon a very contentious story concocted by muhammad, and of course the latter conquering of the city, even by Salahaddin. One flag will fly over Jerusalem, the Israeli flag, never any other, certainly not a UN flag.

    Lastly, we must move away from the antiquated world government organization called the United Nations. We recently saw what type of “leaders” are allowed a stage before this body politic. It is time we create a new organization which is based upon Nations with like political structures, Republics and Democracies. I advocate Israel being part of this structure, perhaps an expanded NATO, but something with teeth, and principled member Nations. We face a dangerous committed enemy; we are all targets, not just Israel.

    And if we fail to believe that last sentence, ask those who lost loved ones on 9-11 in America, on 3-11 in Madrid, and in the London bombings. We just dodged a terrible blow here in America, again, while promoting “Islam on Capitol Hill”. Funny, the attendees blamed their fear of reprisals for not having more persons participate. This on the same day, 25 September 2009 that a Jordanian illegal immigrant was caught sitting in a “supposed” car bomb and dialing up the cell number to detonate in Dallas.

    Genesis Chapter 16, verses 11-12 states, “And the Angel of the Lord said to her (Hagar): Behold you are with child, and you shall bear a son, you shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against everyman, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

    Ishmael of course became the beginning of the Arab people….and God’s word is immutable truth.

    In closing, there are battle lines clearly drawn, I know where I stand, and that is to support the State of Israel. The lessons of history have been learned by me and I offer one simple retort, “Not on my Watch”.

    FROM BUDDY:
    Again, I find it ironic that Allen West uses the exact lines from the Bible that racists used to cite to prove the Biblical roots of segregation.

    Oh, and by the way, this comment comes anonymously directly from West’s campaign.

  75. JACK GILLIES says:

    Buddy,
    I would hope that you would click into all the internet sites that I sent you plus leave them up on your comment page for others to educate themselves about the dangers of islam.
    I would hope after reading some of the material above that you might reconsider your stance on LTC Allen West. Real men do apologize when they have erred.
    Although I do not expect that to happen because somehow I do not think that you have that much character.

    I find it comforting now, to see your lengthy diatribe against Col. West reduced to a sputtering few words. Basically “you” responding with the old school yard retort, “it is to!”.

    Finally, you repeat, “…uses the exact lines from the Bible that racists used to cite to prove the Biblical roots of segregation.”

    Aren’t you using the exact lines and tactics from Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” when you and your fellow hatchet man / blog writer, the effete Sam Fields employ suggested by Alinsky against West?

    Does that make you a Marxist radical?

    Cheers!

  78. You're Kidding! says:

    Buddy,

    What were you reading? Your representations are a total distortion of the information on the website! Moreover, everything Col. West outlines on his website is historically accurate. Maybe you should forward your distorted information to Mr. Klein. It might be useful at his next town hall meeting or when he visits the many Jewish assisted living facilities in his district. I’m sure they would be interested in your concerns – and who knows how many Moslem voters might be swayed to vote for Mr. Klein??

  81. Alan Bergstein says:

    Buddy Nevins calls Allen West a racist because he quotes from the Bible and does not capitalize “islam?” West has not called for the exlusion of Arabs from this population. Rather, Nevins should concentrate on the appointment by Congressman Ron Klein of his buddy, Congressman Keith Ellison, to the Congressional Committee on anti-semitism, which Klein chairs. Ellison is a member of CAIR, noted by the FBI as collaboraters with terrorists and Ellison is also a member of Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam. These groups ARE TERRORIST SUPPORTERS! Let Nevins concern his leftist mind with those who wish our country overrun with Islamists, not with the war hero and leader, Allen West.

  82. Joe Kaufman says:

    Allen West is a war hero, who saved people’s lives. He should be thanked and given honors for his service to our nation.

    Lt. Colonel West risked his life and fought to protect the very freedoms which were used to write this ‘hit piece’ against him.

    While I may not personally agree with all of his opinions, he has a right to his opinions — he earned that right on the battlefield — and I would be proud to stand with Allen West any day.

    G-d bless Allen West!

  83. BanditThree says:

    Ahhh…now we get to the bottom of it. Mr. Nevins is prejeduced against Christans. He mocks those whose religion is based on the teachings of Christ and the word of God and he lifts those who visit harm upon the Christians and the Jews.

    He denies the Marxist / Socialist / Muslim ideologies; their roles in mass murders: Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin, Castro, and again now, the Muslims…all in the last 100 years.

    He coddles the Muslim majority who are silent and standing by as the extremist minority who follow the letter of their book try to purge the world of light and freedom.

    This irrelevant majority who, like the 1930′s Germans, 1940′s Chineese, Russians, Cambodians and Cuban inteligensia stood by and did nothing.

    Mr. Nevins, George Orwell once wrote that, “We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

    Mr. Nevins; do you feel safe at night? If yes, it’s becuase of men like Allen West that you do.

  84. Bill says:

    Buddy,

    I have to say your blog is a daily must read for me.

    First, I appreciate the fact that you’re willing to try and dialog with the many comments that are posted here.

    I may agree, I may disagree, but at least you’re willing to talk about any position you take.

  85. Resident says:

    As far as I know, Buddy is a Republican. What I find so amusing is when Republicans fight. They then sound just like Democrats. It only proves that while they say they have a big tent, they don’t really.

    Actually I like a lot of Republicans (mostly from out of state), but West isn’t one of them. There are much better choices out there. Strangely, there are some much better choices for Democrats to pick as candidates then some of the Democrats out there. Democrats have a big tent, but don’t know what they are doing.

    The really good ones for either party don’t want to run, or don’t have the $$ to run. Or they are making too much not holding office. Really is always about money and power anyway. To move up in leadership all you have to do is raise money.

  86. Joe Kaufman says:

    Allen West is a war hero, who saved people’s lives. He should be thanked and given honors for his service to our nation.

    Lt. Colonel West risked his life and fought to protect the very freedoms which were used to write this one-sided ‘hit piece’ against him.

    While I may not personally agree with all of his opinions, he has a right to his opinions — he earned that right on the battlefield — and I would be proud to stand with Allen West any day.

    G-d bless Allen West!

  87. Brucie Boye says:

    Buddy is a Republican? Hmmm… Maybe a RINO, but he sounds like a Democrat. Charlie Crist, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, all RINO’s, but they behave like Democrats.

    First of all the Democratic party is morally bankrupt. Second, if the Republican party would stand up on their principles the RINO’s (10%) would have to leave, then the Independents (20%) would return to the GOP.

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT, Crist, Klein, Wasserman-Shultz, and of course that convicted criminal, impeached judge, Alcee Hastings.

    FROM BUDDY: Alcee Hastings was found innocent by a jury of the charges against him. Thus, he is not a convicted criminal.

  88. the Truth is says:

    is it true Chaz Stevens is courting Allen West? Chaz is full of much venom and hate! hmm…

  89. Resident says:

    You know I’ve been around the country. Did you know that Republicans in New England are far more liberal than most Democrats in a good part of the country?

    You see, Republicans don’t have a big tent. They pretend they do, but they have a very short yard stick to measure anyone.

    I disagree with your list of RINO’s. Unless you define Republicans as self serving right wing nuts like Palin, which the country will never accept as President.

    Moderate Republicans and Conservative Blue Dog Democrats don’t really have any party they can call their own. It’s the independents and moderates that are torn apart.

    By the way, what would Jim Naugle be? Often he was called a DINO.

  90. the Truth is says:

    To Resident:

    Jim Naugle is a homphob, Crisco (stands forChristian Coalition wackjob), nutcase who brought his kid to everything, i mean, everything. weird fucked up dude; many people who get as extreme as him have some “issues”..sexuality, self-loathing…hmm..

    Look at the morons who are writing comments in support of Allen West. They quote the Bible and personally attack anybody who disagrees with them, even other Republicans.
    Anybody who hides behind the Bible to justify their views is a person who has run out of logical arguments.
    I served two stints in Vietnam. I saw plenty of stuff shirt assholes quoting the Bible over there. None of it made them any smarter or made this country any safer.

    I am glad that I don’t have to really lift a finger here to point out what a right wing nut job and SELL OUT West is, but I will add that he is a climate change denier and supports Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

    They are all smarter then you :)

  104. Double Standard says:

    re: #71 – Thanks for responding Buddy. I stand by my statement, notwithstanding that you were able to point out a few instances of non-Muslim terrorist acts.

    I acknowledge that other religious and political groups commit terrorist acts to further their agendas. However, none of them an touch the sheer number of Muslim attacks. For example, see: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/index.html#Attacks

    The distinction is that when a group of crazy Christians plans or commits a terrorist act, I hear lots of other Christians condemning those actions. I can’t say the same for the “mainstream” Muslims when there is a Muslim terrorist attack.

    Answer: We have a large audience of followers.

  107. john says:

    I worked with Buddy for years and he is one of the best political journalists in Florida. But this wasn’t even journalism that has you crazies so riled, just a very reasoned opinion based on Allen West’s own crazed writings.

    Yes, some Muslims want the world to conform to their laws, and some espouse violence to do so. And many, many more Christians want to convert infidels to follow the teachings of Jesus. A pushy nut job is still a pushy nut job, no matter what the religion is.

    Allen West is a problem, and his own writings show that. Nothing was out of context, but his thinking is shallow and linear. He makes a fine Republican.

    This sentence below is from his own blog, and it admittedly is taken out of context. But it does show the lack of depth, nuance and brains we should expect from our leaders.

    “If the Arabs can build an indoor ski slope in Dubai, they can resolve the issue of their Arab brothers and sisters.”

  108. Brucie Boye says:

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT, Crist, Klein, Wasserman-Shultz, and of course that convicted criminal, impeached judge, Alcee Hastings.

    FROM BUDDY: Alcee Hastings was found innocent by a jury of the charges against him. Thus, he is not a convicted criminal.

    From Brucie: Buddy, first you stand with muslims and now with Alcee Hastings. That says it all. Here is a recent quote from your pal, the one that you stand with, the impeached judge, Alcee Hastings:

    “There ain’t no rules around here…we are trying to accomplish something…therefore when the deal goes down, all this talk about rules, we make them up as we go along…”

    With this being said I hope you and Chaz have a good life.

    Adios

    Brucie Boye

  109. Louis says:

    I wonder if Buddy was this outraged when Florida CURRENT Congressman Alan Grayson was “DANGEROUS” or “small tent guy” when his rants went national on the House floor and on cable where he asserted that all republicans “want patients to die- that’s there health plan”. Are you kidding me? Col. West is a patriot and an American hero for hos contributions to the US. If you have a problem with his characterization of a sizable segment of Islam, prove that what he says about radical Islam is untrue. Maj. Hassan sits quietly waiting for a trial that no one in the MSM is covering – this after killing fellow soldiers at FT. HOOD. Perhaps Buddy is a racist since ALLEN WEST is African American who doesn’t follow the liberal dogma of how blacks should vote and act. In other words he’s advocating the very small “pup sized tent” that he despises because Col. West had the audacity to differ from Barack Obama,Leonard Pitts type philosophy. Shame on you Buddy.

  116. natrayger says:

    Where did Colonel West say that Muslims are damned by God?

  117. sam fields says:

    Dear “Read the Comment’
    So now I understand Allen West. He believes that the Old and New Testament are the inerrant word of god. Presumably that includes supporting slavery

    This also means he sees The Book of Revelation and The Rapture as the ordained and desirable future.

    ` According The Book of Revelation on the day of the Rapture 2/3’s of the Jews are killed. The remaining 1/3 are saved only
    because the accept Jesus.

    Put another way Allen West is a major Jew hater who is promoting Israeli extremists so he and the rest of The Real Chosen People (See the reference to the Rapture) can get to heaven and be in the Bosom of Abraham. They want that Armageddon ASAP.

    So it kills millions of Jews. No big whoop for Allen.

    Needless to say I have had this conversation with Orthodox Jews whose tunnel vision prevents them from looking at the true motives of the so-called Christian friends of Israel.

    They refuse to read the New Testament (they would rather eat a ham sandwich)or even discuss this with these fanatical Christians who are not much different from Islamic fanatics.

    In summary West is an anti-Semite and you are an idiot.

  118. Chaz Stevens, Genius says:

    @Sam Fields.
    Allen West believes believes that the Old and New Testament are the inerrant word of god.

    I prefer a higher power than “belief”. It’s called observation.

    I find it ironic how many of these posts say “God Bless Allen West” ???

    You must be kidding….This is man who tortured an Iraqi police officer with a gun and ordered his young troops in his command to then beat him.

    There was never a single arrest or a single cited incident that Col. West’s actions prevented anything. In fact the man he had beaten and tortured is still a police officer in Iraq today.

    He used his celebrity from this sadistic act to then propel him into a congressional race that he has used to divide and spew bigoted venom? He’s no Sgt. York now is he?

    God Bless Allen West? Yes, I would say God Bless Allen West, indeed. He needs it.

  123. Amwiser Kafira says:

    You can always tell the cities where CAIR has influence because their newspapers come out with articles like this one. They work their taquiya magic and the dhimmi’s believe it.

    Under the RELIGION section of this week’s issue of Newsweek, there is an article by a American Catholic woman who speaks out against the abusive acts of the Catholic priests against children. The title of the article is “Save The Children” and it’s URL is http://www.newsweek.com/id/235227. In the article, she talks about how her friend denounces these acts, and she rhetorically reflects asking “should I continue to send my kid to church?” in light of these abuses now made public.
    all thinking, patriotic Americans expected to here from so-called “moderate” Muslims in America. Of course, we didn’t hear much of a peep from the American Muslim community. Yes, we know that Muslim women can’t socialize and join groups for any other cause except Islam. Yes, we know that some are not allowed by their husbands or fathers to go out and get a job and meet strange people in public. Yes, we know that it is against the teachings of Islam for Muslims to befriend non-Muslims.

    But none of these things are required in order for a so-called “moderate” American Muslim man or woman to WRITE A LETTER into a newspaper or national magazine like Newsweek whenever something happens that would call for such condemnation.

    This is a simple observation to make. It is not rocket science! Not to diminish the brilliance of Ltc West but what is so hard for people to understand? Ltc Allen West has made these observations and simply voices them. He calls it as he sees it – exclusive of any and all “political correctness” (which we are all aware is a resultant self-censorship. After all, the anti-critical thinking followers of Islam (read: Muslims) and the left don’t have the option of speech censorship!

    This is why West has popular support. He says things that need to be said. He says things that we need to hear. It is common sense that so many of the puppets on the left lack. They are entirely oblivious to the dangers of Islam and give it carte blanche over America because one of our ancestors decided that Islam is a “religion”.

    I remember when Glenn Beck openly invited the American Muslim community to come on his radio show and/or his TV show. He would offer them free time for their words condemning Islamic terrorism and Islamic jihadism. Of course we are still waiting… The American Muslim community won’t even acknowledge that the terrorists have been all Muslim. Ltc has a job to do and he easily demonstrates in his speeches that he knows exactly what, when, where, why and how to do it.

  124. furtive says:

    Buddy,

    If you want to investigate a dangerous prognostication, look no further than the man occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, an intimate friend of Louis Farrakhan, and a lead community organizer of his Million Man March.

    There sleeps a man who believes there are 57 states in the USA and who cannot commit to a church in DC, and who has decided to have “private services” at Camp David. Hmn. sounds suspect to me..perhaps his private clergy is Farrakhan?? Why not check out that deception?

    Look no further than his most ardent supporter, the present congressman in the 22nd district, who stands behind Nancy Pelosi when beckoned.
    That SAME man came out with no statement regarding how our duly “elected” (by early voting daily acorn lines around the block in lily white neighborhoods, IMPERSONATING mostly deceased registrants) POTUS snubbed with callous indifference, the pleading of Netanyahu to intervene concerning Iran’s imminent terror mindset.

    IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO IMPEACH THE CREDIBILITY OF ALLEN WEST! LET THE MUSLIMS IN THE 22ND DISTRICT SPEAK THEIR MIND THROUGH THE BALLOT BOX. (ALONG WITH THE HELP OF THE IMPERSONATORS REPRESENTING THE NEW MONIKER OF THE DEFUNCT ACORN’S ASSISTANCE).

    If I were you, I would focus on why Ron Klein endorsed this health care catastrophe. He and his colleagues in crime will be exempt from the plan they voted into law.

    Your priorities are misdirected, for sure.

    Allen west is not the problem .
    He say the truth , have you ever talk to a suicide boomer or a terrorist Mr. Nevins ? .
    They all said that it’s the Koran who commanded them to kill non Muslims and that is way they are holly worriers (terrorists) to expend Islam and to make the whole world Muslim .
    Islam expending all around the world by violent. look at history of the Islam and look at what happened sins September 11 how the Islam grow in the USA and will get bigger because of the act of September 11 that is a statistical fact .

    I read it in the Koran . did you ? why are you miss lading and accusing Allen west with out even looking for the truth are you afraid that he is right ?

    I did talk to suicide boomers and terrorist they will agree with Allen west .

    But because you Mr. nevins insist to stay ignorant in this subject just like the majority of the media , don’t piss on me and tell me that its raining . pleas stop .

    If its to match for you to Handel so live it be until you do the job of talking to active terrorists and reform terrorist .you need to read the Koran you need to do a better job of reporting the truth not your wishful thinking .

    You doing the same work of the media in ww2 telling us that Hitler and the Nazis are great ,they just moving the Jews the work camps .

    Have you ever live in a Muslim world ? are you aware to the damage that Islam bring on to the world ?

    journalist like you who suppose to do the work of looking for the truth and report it is the real problem .instead of doing the hard work of looking for the truth you are miss lading us and you are blaming the messenger . this is very disappointing .

    Allen west is absolutely right . the Koran is generator of hate and violent . you want to close your eyes to it , way ?

    Allen I am 100% behind you don’t stop and don’t let fear paralyze you like Mr. nevins hear .

    You must be joking, right? You are actually going to use the word “bigot”? This clearly shows you don’t even know what the word means, or rather sculpt it to fit your leftist diatribe. Oh well, small minds tend to drip a bit from the infection.

Once you get that one under your belt (or do we want it above your belt?), then we’ll address your delusional state of mind; you know, the whole grandeur thing.

    Your dribble is overflowing the bucket; please refrain from using the authoritative sense in your writings, as clearly you are no theologian. “Needless to say…”? You can’t erase mistakes here, so you might as well retract the pencil eraser from your monitor screen.

    Anyway, you’ve shot yourself in the toe by revealing that you have as much disdain for Jews as you do for Christians; so your circular logic is… you hate half of yourself as much as you hate those that you perceive to hate Jews? What a dizzing intellect indeed!

    “In summary…” (I love it when someone writes a few paragraphs and feels it is a academic thesis; and by the way, it’s “In summation…” when addressing in conclusion your own work). You are mentally inadequate to the task of social intercourse, and deceitful.

    To john (#107) -

    Why do liberals and miscreants have a tendency to not capitalize their names? I’m just curious, as I believe that is a indicator of low self-esteem, is it not?

    No wonder you feel Buddy is one of the best political writers (Ooooh! in Florida no less!); working with such a celebrity journalist must certainly have been an honor at the Papa Smurf printing house.

    You just don’t get it binky, LTC West is a problem; A real problem for those who would wish to turn the “United States of America” into the “Socialistic Union of the Godless”. I would comprise that his ideology is conservative, and in his course of service to the people he is trying to bolster what -was- the Grand Old Party, bringing it back on course. “Linear” is good; the tips of spears and bayonnets are linear; they make fine points. And “linear” does not negate stacking side-by-side, talons are linear. Bullets are linear in their trajectory; as long as they are not tasked to travel too far from their masters. Linear can never be accused of being convoluted (like yourself). Bundled, Tight, pointed, stiff; yeah, I like linear.

    It is indeed time to start trembling: those that retain the founding fathers vision; those that place a higher order in righteousness; those that differentiate between light and darkness are coming, coming to take back America, coming to restore the intent behind the Constitution of these United States.

    As most of you read this, I ask you to try to be more of an American than a Republican. I know its hard but focus on the facts.

    I have a question to #5 Fred Perry above whose son is currently in the Marines. Most fathers I know would do their best to talk their sons out of fighting for a nation controlled by traitors and tyrants. Yes, the Bush regime were tyrants too. You are far from understanding what is really happening here. Far !

    Fred, imagine America is your son. If your son was diagnosed with cancer and then a year later it was found out that he was wrongly diagnosed, would you continue treatment ? Would you continue to subject your son to life threatening radiation and chemotherapy for another 7 years, just as America’s leaders are doing with our sons and daughters with this war, and BEYOND ? Of course you wouldn’t. Then why is Allen West still promoting this War? Would you make up excuses and reasons that your son should continue taking life threatening chemotherapy and radiation even though the real threat and diagnosis of cancer was wrong? Of course you wouldn’t. Then why is Allen West making excuses and reasons to continue this War?

    Fact – it is no longer a question of whether 9/11 was a false flag event to generate American public opinion to allow this country to go to war. You obviously need to spend time investigating it. Allen West knows the truth about 9/11, any military man worth his salt does. West chooses to look the other way. He is not the only one.

    Fact – America was brought to war by that event and 4 LIES. West chooses to look the other way. He is not the only one.

    2. There was no nuclear bomb being built as Colin Powell testified before the UN (why is he doing that?) saying that it was not an assertion but a fact (turned out to be a lie by the General..yes, military guys lie too).
    3. There were no ties to Al Queda and therefore
    4. There were no ties to 9/11.

    Nineteen Arabs/Saudis flew planes into buildings that day my friend and now a million innocent Iraqis are dead – 99% that had nothing to do with 9/11. Kenny, you posted the pic of 2 beheaded, please be fair and impartial and also post a picture of the million Iraqis killed as well as our countrymen in this war built on LIES. That is blood on every Americans hands. Yours and Allen West’s too. Allen West has chosen to look the other way when it comes to all these facts and just toe the Republican Party line. Are you going to look the other way too Fred, now that your son is in harms way ?! Just make up some excuses why the War should continue. I hope not. Your son is in the Marines for all the wrong reasons and this country is not any safer for it. The next false flag event is possibly right around the corner and you are pumping up a candidate that is chosing to do nothing but look the other way! What about every single person posting on this site that is backing Allen West? Playing dumb is no longer an excuse – you have been told the facts. Are you going to continue to back a candidate that wants to continue a WAR built on lies? Can’t you see he is merely toeing the Party line sent down from those in control? Its back to POLITICS AS USUAL with Allen West but just with the military swagger and strong “WORDS”. Quit being a sheep, spend some time doing some homework and look at “ACTIONS”.

    Those of you that will respond that there are bad people in the world that America needs to go police, save your breath and go read the Constitution for once.

    If you are truly and sincerely interested in bringing this country back to Constitutional Governance, then email me directly for cliff notes to get you up to speed. Glenn Beck may be doing a good job of teaching you the history and tactics of the Liberals, but he keeps the spotlight off the real enemy…the historic money handlers.
    Americans must start learning history. Shut off the TV, for the hundreth time its controlled by the enemy. Read The Creature from Jekyll Island.

    99% of this board are on their knees in front of Allen West. Its obvious the facts I am laying out here are not popular.
    But I am ex-military too and I took an oath as well and I intend to uphold my oath. I don’t intend to just continue looking the other way as the media and parties
    have conditioned most of you to do. I won’t stand by as innocent civilians and my fellow country men are killed for imperialistic and corporate gains in a war that
    was generated by LIES. Will you?

    To Mark Pilling (#134) -

    I believe you and I have met before, perhaps more than a year ago out in Plantation. I think the event had something to do with the need for government to return to the Constitution.

    I think I remember that after a 20-30 minute conversation with you, which was filled with conspiracy theories on your end, I agreed that even though the Federal Reserve Bank and IRS are true historical monsters, you are in a word “nuts” on every other account. I urge you to seek psychiatric help. BTW, your analogy sucks.

    Whenever someone states “Fact -” within a moronic tirade, it’s time to take their Koolaid away.

Stay focused on the facts Richard. You accuse of conspiracy theory yet you do not acknowledge that if that is the case, the claims could be easily refuted. What in this post is not factual? Please stay on point and on the facts and don’t revert to other methods of yours such as namecalling as you already began to do above.

    A Message to the Muslim World
    by Tawfik Hamid

    Many in the Muslim world repeatedly express anger when Islam and its founder are
    criticized. This anger could be fully understandable, especially when we take into
    consideration the sensitivity of talking about religious issues. However, it is vital that the
    Muslim world realize that most-if not all- the criticism of Islam and of the prophet is
    based on what traditional and mainstream Islamic books teach. In other words, it is
    unfair to say that criticism of Islam was merely based on or motivated by bias against
    the religion, especially when we see thousands of Mosques and Islamic schools built in
    and sometimes supported by Western countries. We have actually seen much more
    limitations placed on the rights of minorities to build their religious temples or to
    practice their religion freely in Muslim countries than in the West. For example,
    Christians are not permitted to have their bibles with them in Saudi Arabia while
    Muslims have complete freedom to have the Quran in the US and European countries.
    Muslims MUST ask themselves who actually discriminates against the other, is it the
    West who is discriminating against Islam or is it that the Muslim world is discriminating
    against people of other faiths? Who needs to change and show more tolerance for
    religious minorities, the West or the Muslim world?
    In addition, when the Taliban destroyed the historical Buddha statues the Muslim
    world was virtually silent, which may indicate a form of acceptance for this barbaric act.
    The Muslims MUST ask themselves, what would they have felt if the Buddhists- for
    example- destroyed the Muslim Holy mosque in Mecca?
    Furthermore, Muslims enjoy full freedom in the West to preach to non-Muslims and to
    convert them to Islam. On the contrary, Muslims-in general- become very furious if they
    discover that non-Muslims are proselytizing to Muslims to convert them to other faiths.
    In fact, proselytizing to Muslims is illegal in many Islamic countries. The Muslim world
    needs to question itself. Again, is it the West discriminating against them, or is it the
    Muslims discriminating against the others.
    The Muslim world needs to realize that the negative image of Islam in the West has been
    created by the Muslims themselves.

    Ahhh, you expected to be personally excoriated by me? What an honor for you.

    It’s not ‘name calling’ I practice, it is ‘labeling’.

    It’s not an accusation (conspiratorial madness) if it’s true, as your claims have ALREADY all been proven otherwise. Go read (not on pinko sites though; remember, ‘pink’ rots the brain.).

    Mark, please don’t be redundant all over again, and again, and again; it drives me to laugh too hard. This point/point/point/point was always your main drive (as though that somehow made you correct), even when you refused to see the light.

    Unfortunately Mark, this is a small board, and to explain where you and the conspiracy theory groupies have become delusional would elicit writings that would bind several volumes.

    I am always focused on the facts, but I can not sit down with the small-minded for 5 years to bring them up to speed. Forgive me my selfishness for personal time. Perhaps if we were to meet at some future point in time, I could help calm your agitated mind with my soothing voice. (My wife is cackling in the background over that one!)

    Now, the case in point may be that you are a earnest truthseeker, but if your untrained mind does not understand physics and the scientific way (which it does not), I can not help you nor would I waste my valuable time in the attempt. To the element of your delusion: amplifying these pseudo-science rants by rouge ‘professors’ and the like who tout thermite bombs and such does nothing but dig you further into a fevor of which there is no escape. This is why I suggested psychiatric help (not psychological counseling).

No need for integrity…just feel good about being a galactic pin head.

    That’s OK…your harmless. You like that, some folks nip at your bait now and then and everyone is happy. you dangle a cutting morsel sure to agitate and infuriate and they take a piece out of you. It works. Every one is happy, everyone gets a trophy.

    Mr. No Nonsense:

    Re Your Post # 129

    You ask a fair question. You have a healthy dose of skepticism and that’s welcome.

    Col West received an Article 13 hearing ragarding an incident which he immediatley reported to his superiors, that, occured during an interrogation. An Article 13 is equivalent to a hearing regarding a misdemeanor charge. He received this hearing after several Senators and some congressmen became outraged that his interrogation of a known “bad actor” was being politicized in Washington and this man did nothing but save men under his command. During the interrogation, and only after the prisoner refused to cooperate with the two Egyptian Women who were assigned to question the man, West offered the prisoner an opportunity to speak with West directly. It was late and West’s men were going on patrol at dawn. Time was running out. So, in the early hours of the morning, West discharged a pistol behind the head of the Saddam Fedayeen operative and into a clearing tube (to be safe)after the man refused West’s efforts at cajoling the information from the prisoner. This is all public record. The shot caused no permanent physical damage and the subject spoke candidly and without hesitation subsequent to the shot being fired. Significant tactical information came to light as a result of the prisoners sudden eagerness to cooperate. Rememebr, West reported the incident to his superior officer imediately after. Not a man under his command disagreed. Some live today because of col. west. They have children now and will live to tell the story to their grandchildren. And as you stated, the Iraqi police officer is alive and well (because West showed restraint).

    Don’t take my word for it. Check the mainstream sources. Check the Army Times, check hearing records…it’s all there. There is some independent stuff on West’s web site (as I recall): http://www.allenwestforcongress.com

    As for Colonel West’s career, no; he was not forced to resign. After the incident he spent two years as Battalion Commander at Ft. Hood Texas .

    After 22 years in the Army (one may retire after 20 years), Col West retired. He taught at Deerfield Beach High School for a year and was then recruited to join other career retired military officers in training Afghan Army officers as a civilian contractor He was employed by the Department of the Army. Another two years away from his family. Would the Army have hired a man that; it felt was a risk? No.

    So, that’s what I know. If there is an error, it is not intentional. Check for your self. There is enough misinformation out there to choke a mule.

    Best.

  156. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To Shekfu (#153) -

    The first part is correct, the second part is wishful thinking. Idealizing won’t work with that.

    What’s not being deseminated is that it is the religion of Islam that can not exist with any other religion on Earth (by their rules, not ours, and the standing order is that the whole of the Earth must be Muslim or slaughtered by 11-26-2076 AD). There are actually two major types of Muslims: Fundimentalists, and Westernized. It is the former that likes to die and bring others with them; it is the latter that says nothing (for the most part) and thereby makes them culpable as they have an inside track to change the sickness. Furthermore, there is a Islamic cultural aspect in this thing called “al-Taqiyah”, which sinks any chance of knowing the real truth of a Muslim’s intent. So, in general, after 9-11 it is pretty clear what stance we need to take.

    ———————————–

    To Chaz Stevens, the fraud (#151) -

    Yeah, I know I got you, everybody knows I got you; it’s a bygone conclusion. There’s no use calling for backup now, the fort’s been burned down around you and you’re standing there naked.

    Ah Willy, you got half of that all wrong; the right side was backing me (sans the little weasel known as Chip LaMarca, who only cares about his political career, rather than the truth; but that is OK, I put him firmly in his place. He doesn’t like to be around me anymore). BTW, 1 week later what I stated in the posters became the word at a national level (you know, SOCIALISM is Obama’s dream).

    ‘Press’? Is that what you are about? Was mommy a termagant, did she stifle you? Unlike you, I don’t have a compultion to be heard to confirm my value on the planet. My discourse with others is to enlighten, not self-illuminate; I’m not the one with falsely attached “Genius” in my post name.

    Thanks for the heartwarming campfire tale. You don’t however, address the issue I raised: Could west have stayed in the Army if he wanted. The answer to that is a resounding no. The Army thought him incompetent, and unworthy of promotion. Now that I think of it, given his incompetence, Politics or Banking may be the perfect vocation for him.

  160. john says:

    To Mr. Richard E. Driskill:

    Are you posts intended to be funny, or are you really an absolute moron? It’s very difficult to tell.

    There are two types of Muslims in the world? First of all, the word is spelled fundamentalist, but more importantly, that statement is complete fiction. There are many, many variants of Muslim religion, but fundamentalist and westernized aren’t in that list.

    And a standing order to slaughter people by 2076? Whose order?

    When I see things like this, I understand how Sarah Palin can drop out of five colleges in five years and still almost reach the White House, and how mind-numbingly stupid people can show up at Tea Parties or talk about state law trumping federalism.

    I live in a Muslim country, Bosnia, and the people are religious, pick and choose what they wish to believe and follow (just like every single Christian on the planet, or we’d be stoning adulters, owning slaves and the Republican tax cuts would doom every rich person on earth to hell, according to the Bible). And, they absolutely love America more than any country on the planet does. Of course, the fact that Clinton stopped a genocide doesn’t hurt.

    Yes, many Arab countries are supporting terrorism, vowing to destroy Israel and creating a religous and nationalistic fervor to distract from their gross corruption and their horrible treatment of citizens. It’s revolting, but that’s politics, not religion.

  161. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To shekfu (#158) -

    Yes, I do.

    I agree; you are referring to ‘Westernized’ Muslims.

    (Stick with me, I’ll get to the point, even though it seems like I’m digressing.)

    Both the Bible and the Koran (and other religious works) have segments clearly written in harsher times, and with the nature of man, being that if lenient in law, especially moral law, man will always take advantage.

    Ex #1: Not to pick on them, but look at Catholics, they can be officially ‘forgiven’ on a weekly basis, and are free to start the cycle all over again.

    Ex #2: Look at the homosexuality issue in the Christian church; what was once castigated now is allowed. Why? Because the mental illness was allowed to spread. It doesn’t mean you have to kill them (like under Sharia law), but they should be ‘outcasts’ to halt growth (or assisted to overcome their perversion), just like those that were ‘outlaws’ of America’s wild west.

    Ex #3: Look at the deceit among those that scream “racisim” (the ‘race card’) at every turn; it is a false anger generated by those that are using the gullible, fearful, or weak. The true divide is not -actually- racism (there is only a very, very small number of mentally defective people who are “racist” [genetics based hatred]), but rather the divide lies in the ethnicity gone wrong; in the case in America, it amounts to a wide-spread, modern, black ideology of disdain for white people because of slavery that occured in the distant past (look up “black liberation theology”). This is TAUGHT to them (be they radical parents or be they street punks) in the black community. The only way to break this cycle (and so many others) is by the advancement of intellect AND morality; to break the chain of defective mentality, to expose and reveal the wrong of it. Notice how some black people call LTC West a ‘Uncle Tom’; it’s not because he’s black and has white friends, it’s because he’s black and doesn’t play along with the deceit.

    Similar examples can be extended to humanism, socialism, communism, etc. It all amounts to people using people for whatever twisted reasons are in their heads; every walk of life has inferior, wrong, immoral, criminal, defective elements. Advancement from these can only come through true intellect (man’s limit of vision) AND morality (God’s guidance). One without the other is useless (the mind will be corrupted without morality, and the spirit will be tricked without intellect); the creature will still be miserable.

    Now, the point of danger with Islam is fundimental extremism. Consider the KKK (which claims to be Christian based) as an example. Both hide themselves from exposure when among ‘the enemy’. The KKK is a terrorist organization, and any chance to expose their unlawful and immoral practices are jumped upon by real Christians (be they Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, etc.). Islam’s ‘Westernized’ followers can not say the same; they remain mute (to the greatest degree). When you add the element of al-Taqiyah to the mix (this is why bad guys wear masks), forget it, you won’t know night from day in discovering the truth of their intentions. The greatest of danger is that Islam, by its mandate, must be installed in EVERYONE (by 2076); non-acceptance means slaughter.

    Most religions wish to further their cause, that is natural, and it is every religions belief that they are the one true religion, with the understanding that they must stay ‘inside the box’ and not become radical. The difference between other religions and Islam are the rules to accomplishing that. With Islam, it ultimately amounts to convert or we will kill you. That is not good, that is evil.

    A genuinely adequate explanation would actually require about 300 times the volume of what I’ve stated here, but do you follow what I’m saying? Do you agree or not agree?

    P.S.: As far as ‘porn’ goes, that is also another word often used in error. There is something called “erotica” which is visual enjoyment of sexual imagry that is beautiful and natural (as we are sexual beings); and then there is “pornagraphy”, a debasement of sexuality. True pornagraphy (you should be able to figure out exactly what that entails) should be revolting to the sound mind. Unfortunately, almost any sexual material is now called ‘porn’.

  162. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To john (#160) -

    Cretinous attempts at communication, how quaint.

    ‘john’, it’s funny how you claim to live in Bosnia, yet espouse liberalism so succinctly in American fashion; and also “And t-h-e-y love America…”. Besides, you already stated you worked with Buddy here in Florida (#107). Opps!, you’ve been snagged by a snare you laid yourself.

    Read carefully my dim-witted friend and try to follow along:

    Islam, which comprises about 20.28% of religious believers around the globe is divided among 4+ groups, w/Sunnism at about 63%. Islam can be further expressed under two division of realistic pratice; Fundimentalist, and Westernised.

    Actually, the exact date is 11-27, 2076 AD (the year 1500 by their calendar), the day of Mohammed’s return to Earth.

    Obviously you’ve never read the US Constitution; it is the 10th Amendement that specifically AFFIRMS the power of the state, and the people. Don’t be a dullard and think that Constitutional law and Federal law are the same; they are not, and it is Constitutional law that trumps all. Federal laws can indeed be unconstitutional when bad people sneek it by (which has happened, and is happening right now)

    Anyway, stop gulping the Koolaid, twisting all manner of things to fit your screwed thinking.

If you become dizzy and are restricted by the capacity of a simpleton, or become angry from a bruised ego (and you’ve got to admit, yours is a huge target!) and want to vent by calling it a one-way hash argument, so be it. It is crystal clear you typed your last line because of your penultimate line of redirection springing from your failed mental state. BTW, we don’t “talk” to each other here, in this medium it would be called “conversing”.

    Or was that all way too complicated for you? Did I make your little brain ache?

    Which brings us to the fact that you are sooooo done (the grill marks are showing pal), and have been totally exposed. I can only fathom that your brain stem has been yanked on a bit too hard while kneeling in a compromising position.

    If we ever meet in person, please excuse my side-splitting laughter. (and that’s no hyperbole)

    Mr D. every walk of life has inferior, wrong, immoral, criminal, defective elements. What does this mean??? there are bad appple teachers, black people, tall people??? seriously ..

  167. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To shekfu (#166) -

    I’m not sure I understand your question or your comment.

    To abridge it; man is defective, address with simple truths, attempt to fix man.

    The paragraph in question from # 161:

    “Similar examples can be extended to humanism, socialism, communism, etc. It all amounts to people using people for whatever twisted reasons are in their heads; every walk of life has inferior, wrong, immoral, criminal, defective elements. Advancement from these can only come through true intellect (man’s limit of vision) AND morality (God’s guidance). One without the other is useless (the mind will be corrupted without morality, and the spirit will be tricked without intellect); the creature will still be miserable.”

  168. TruthMatters says:

    Unfortunately, Islam is being led by the radicals who Allen West is talking about. In your article you say, “In West’s America, we should write off the millions of law-abiding Arabs in this country because God supposedly damned them.” This is misinterpreting and misrepresenting not only the Bible (which you quote in Gen. 16:11-12) but also Allen West. “Moderate” Muslims must stand up to the bullies and support America and her ideals. As George W. Bush said, “you are either with us, or against us.”

  169. shekfu says:

    ugh…”with us or against us”…simple ideas for simple minds

  170. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To shekfu (#169) -

    When a thing be resolved to its base and the parameters agreed not to change; yes, one must ultimately answer yes or no, for or against, in or out. You either swear allegiance or you do not, you either commit or you do not, you either speak up or you remain silent.

    It has nothing to do with simplicity, it speaks to resolution for the matter at hand. It calls in obligation to not play any more games, for trickery to cease.

    It is you ‘shekfu’ that lacks the capacity to expound, or even just communicate in whole, and therefore it is you that can be referred to as ‘simple-minded’, perhaps even to the point of having no honor. This mental cowering of your own accord reminds me of those that call themselves pacifists; they rebuff responsibility, all the while enjoying the freedom supplied by other men.

  171. shekfu says:

    no sir…zealots are generally the bad guys…

  172. Mr. Richard E. J. Driskill says:

    To shekfu (#171) -

    Actually, ‘Yes’, I am correct.

    There is no zealotry in the sentence “You are either with us, or against us.” as long as the argument preceding this conclusion is made clear and is logical. It was in fact not even partisan; as was the case in that everyone was of the mind to punish all those that would commit mass murder, or protect said murderers. In this case, it was a statement of position voicing clear intent and resolve due to an attack on the United States of America.

    You are either intentionally misusing the word “zealot” in an attempt to falsely impugn (which would be small-minded on your part; specious), or you need to fully understand what the word “zealot” implies within the context of its delivery (normally within a sentence, but can extend to a paragraph).

    Zealots can indeed be the ‘bad guys’, but its meaning is adaptable depending specifically on how it is used. As an example: ‘fanatical religious zealotry’ (when used in a clear and expansive sentence) would be a bad thing; while simply the label ‘zealot’ can infer that one is full of zeal (having an eager and ardent interest in the pursuit of something), and indicative of no mental defect, just great passion.

    Ergo, the word “zealots” is not applicable, taking into account your expressed thoughts (as minimal as they were) leading up to your use of it.

    Unfortunately, proper usage of words to clearly define our thoughts in expression have been eviscerated as of the last few decades. Alas, it seems you are among those so caught up in the aforementioned gutting; aligned with the wave in dumbing-down America.

    Or are you already aware of all this and are just chucking bricks like an anarchistic child?

    Somehow I get the feeling that there will be a one sentence response, which will likely prove my point.

  173. Cathie says:

    Hmmm…last I checked this was still a free country. Mr. West is as entitled to his opinion as you are of yours. Just because you are offended doesn’t mean Mr. West hates those of the Moslem faith. Your interpretation is simply that – your interpretation.

  174. Bipartisan says:

    All of this rant by the bible-thumping crusaders would be funny if it wasn’t dangerous. It’s clearly sad. How week does your faith have to be to become so paranoid about perceived (and some real) threats? Is the superiority of the Christendom wholly dependent upon maintaining a numerical majority? Some inward reflection is mandated here. Why are your priests buggering little boys? And why isn’t the world knocking down your doors to accept Christ as his savior, instead of turning towards Islam?
    No it’s not because Muslims have more babies as suggested by an above posted link to a YouTube video (from an unidentifiable source). Try this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mINChFxRXQs&feature=related
    For the 4000 innocent American that were killed by the 9-11 terrorists, we have killed over 400,000 of them (majority were women and children, data available). Do you feel better? Safer? Stronger?
    You don’t, do you? You are still fearful of “them”. Even though that “them” is your neighbor but you have created a bugaboo in your head that he is out to get you and take over the world. So much so that the fear has driven you to forego the basic principals upon which this nation was founded (and no, it wasn’t Christianity). So who has won the most recent crusade of the last decade?
    Much of what I have read above is indicative of a faith in crisis. If your faith is strong, then why do fear that the big bad Muslim will convert you to Islam and implement the Sharia law?
    I pray for you all (and myself).

  175. George Girgis says:

    Everything Mr. West said is nothing but the truth, I have great respect for this man after I heared his speech, and I did not know him before. I wish he is the president of US, he will do better job that Obama who is more concerned about the right of the terrorists than the safety of USA

    It’s dishonest to cover up that Democrats were not only in charge of Congress during the economic crash, they blocked regulation and oversight into illegal accounting procedures at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who lied about what they were selling to Wall St. Search on youtube “shocking Democrats Fannie Mae” for actual clips from the hearings and see for yourselves. Dems also sued banks, forcing them to give loans to people who couldn’t afford them, this is what caused the housing crash. To cover it up, you blame Bush and slander anyone who notices with charges of “racist” “homophobe” “Islamophobe” “nutjob” or whatever piece of crap and slander you can come up with because you cannot win the debate on facts. To insinuate all blacks must follow in blind obeisance is not only racist, it is oppressive. You are what you do, people, not what you say about yourselves. #DEMS #HYPOCRITES #FAIL

  180. Lucy says:

    I know this comes very late but Ive just come across this site… well really skimmed through all these posts and I only know a few things…. Once you resort to LABELING which is a adult (if you can call it that) form of name-calling, but disrespectful and childish either way, you are letting everyone know that something is wrong with your view if you must resort to that to insulting someone so that they may get upset and stoop to that same level and possibly say something that will make you look correct. Stick to the facts… and remember that so called conspiracy theories aka opinions influenced by facts and strange dubious actions, have a percentage rate of being correct… so dont insult or belittle someone because it would be a shame to look like a fool if it came to light that these so called conspiracy theories you refuse to analyze were to be found as factual… then you yourself would be the one labeled and laughed at and that goes for anyone using low class expressions… respect peoples views, ideas, opinions, whatever you want to call it and just simply say you do not agree and state your reasons why so that you and your view can be respected and/or appreciated.

    As far as my view? I dont know much… all I know is as far as 911 is what I hear:

    1. Powell was in Miami Police Station Early that morning, stated to me by a police officer.

    2. Didnt all this start in Afganistan and then end up somewhere else for totally different reasons? and then did not see anything else on Afganistan afterwards.

    3. How is it possible that those planes could have been stolen with how security is in the airports. I myself have applied to work at the airport before and after 911… There is no way that someone could so easily work there and even less steal a plane… namely because there is a list of thousands of names that are checked, compared and updated on a daily basis for the terrorist concerns to begin with. Mind passenger planes as well as cargo planes HAVE to review this list daily.

    4. How many Jewish people did not report to work on 911?

    5. Where is Bin Laden and Sadam Hussein who like Fidel Castro have so called look a-likes? Lets see what new story pops up next voting session… whose story will only conveniently last a certain period of time.

    6. Strange how every single time there is voting suddenly there is some issue and the then president has to take action. Which then later own just dies down or disappears due to another issue that came up.

    7. When there is something extremely serious going on somehow something else happens in orders to distract the people from it.

    8. Who stood to benefit from these “problems” with Petroleum rich countries? we all know what Im referring to or who.

    9. Want to see whats going on both sides??? get satellite and watch BBC i think thats what its called… where they actually show you things that the television networks in the US would not dare or be allowed to show… Like a unarmed child in a crown of citizens in the middles east actually being shot by our army, an image I can never erase from my mind.

    10. We all know the government only shows us what they want and interferes in what the media will show as well. So we will never know the complete story and if that story is correct or even true.

    11. People in the position to know too much about or are too close to certain political persona’s seem to lose their lives sometimes… coincidental?

    12. We all know that conspiracy theories are around only because of most of the above reasons… because we are not told all the facts…

    (How many things have I not mentioned here or will I hear in the future that will remind me of this site.)

    Hence… who are you to insult people with worries of conspiracy theories… who are worried because they just want the best for our country and possibly the rest of the world? Or is it that you know absolutely every single fact, detail and action taken within and outside of our government? Because if thats the case, why would you know and how? Or are you one of the people placed within a certain office or community in order to deviate certain views from spreading? Now thats something to worry about. Hows that for a conspiracy theory?

    Our country is like a son or daughter to every citizen that loves it… just like your own flesh and blood, you can sense and see when something is not right, schemes are being made and secrets hidden… Even high school students now-a-days have incredible views that make sense meaning… almost everyone is paying close attention and can notice anything fishy… and there is a lot of fishiness going on.

    Again I only know what I’m told or that are just painfully obvious… views I then try to find out more of in case I actually need to sadly move from the US hahaha… not funny actually.

    Once you start labeling, cursing, referring the your genitalia when discussing topics of such importance and worry, as well as less important ones you lose my respect and interest in your view and Im sure mine is not the only one lost… To me that behavior is just one of a ignorant, disrespectful and selfish people with holes in their story.

    OH and please refrain from calling me names… excuse me… labeling me… though I doubt you’ll be able to refrain… you hurt yourself more than you would ever hurt me… anyway it would just be a waste of time that would not change my view at this point… and much less offend me.

    Thank you

And, believe it so strongly that they will fly planes loaded with innocent people, into buldings and kill thousands… to please Allah? And yet, somehow you believe that Muslims are not damned? Grow a pair!

  184. Gary C. Huggins, USMC Retired says:

    Allen West is a neoconservative, warmongering Islamophobe who was forced to resign his commission as an Army officer in disgrace after receiving a general officer grade Article 15 for violating the UCMJ (in lieu of being court-martialed for violating the UCMJ and Geneva Conventions). West should be serving time in a military prison for criminal misconduct.

    The war in Iraq was a racket that Allen West, a manipulative opportunist, has cashed in on. Anyone that wants to know the truth as to what the wars in the Middle East are about, would do well to read the words of Major General Smedley D. Butler, US Marine Corps.

    During his 34-year career as a Marine, Butler participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. By the end of his career he had received 16 medals, five of which were for heroism. He is one of 19 people to twice receive the Medal of Honor, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only person to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.

    He was an outspoken critic of U.S. military adventurism that serves to benefit bankers and corporations at the expense of the lives of the men in our military. In his 1935 book War is a Racket, Butler described the workings of the military-industrial complex. After his retirement, he became a popular speaker at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists and church groups in the 1930s. Here is an excerpt from his book:

    War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

    I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

    I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

    HI Buddy,

    I can assure you that 99% of the post
    above are not from our district much less our state.

    What does Islam have to do with running the affairs of our district and our state anyway?

    You pose good questions. What about drilling off of our coast??? what about jobs??? (didn’t he run on jobs?) What are his views on education and how it’s being defunded?

    What are his view and his plans for the aging population of in our district?

    I could give two craps about all of the military Bullshit…
    Were are the Muslims in our back yard that we should be afraid of. Has South Florida been attacked by Muslims and I haven’t heard about it. WTF… Come on!!!! Really???

    If anyone is a low level agitator it would be West.

    Once this clown gets on the national scene all we will find that all he is, is a distraction. No different then Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Mit Romney, Donald Trump, Rush Limpbag and Glenn Beck lets not forget “Joe the Plumber”. Better men then he have come along and have been slapped down. Because the rhetoric they spews does not jive with the rest of the country.

    The liberals are afraid and hard at work to discredit Allen West. Sorry, your antics will not work. Allen West is the most patriotic man with honor and integrity that you hateful liberals are not used to seeing. His stance on radical Islam, not MUSLIMS,is one that recognizes what radical Islam, NOT MUSLIMS, pose to the western world. You can twist this to be mean and ugly all you want. Allen has said many, many times that all Muslims are not radicals just as all Germans were not Nazis. You are exibiting desperation because you realize how Allen is reaching the people. I feel sorry for you. Desperation can make people crazy and that’s where you are.

    We are facing cultural extinction , AND SO IS AMERICA !
    Congressman West KNOWS this, he isn’t blind like so many others whose blindness is self inflicted, That Bumbler you call your President wants to disarm you, make it illegal to have guns for protection, should he succeed, then America will fall to the religion of blood and hatred, where full sharia law will be enforced and ALL your freedoms will disappear as if they had NEVER existed,those who do NOT convert will be enslaved and killed out of hand, Women will have no rights under Sharia,and neither will you.
    Congressman West is the ONLY hope you have of remaining a Republic and NOT becoming an Authoritarian Theocracy !!!

    Allen West is no racist or bigot. This is a man who fought in several Middle East wars trying to protect the good people from the bad in that sick part of the world.
    The muslims who should fear Allen West are the ones that want Sharia Law implemented in the US and there are a lot of these people.
    I will take Allen West quoting the Old Testament any day over obama or other politicians quoting the koran.
    Allen West is the one man that can restore America back to the greatness that it has lost since obama has occupied the White House.

    Never talking about the issues. Only about how honorable your retired LTC West is so patriotic, and has so much integrity. Yes the liberals know who he is. We know that he retired, to avoid being court- martialed. That he took money for government contracts an low and behold he’s congressmen, of a district he doesn’t even live in.

    Yes, Cathy we liberals know who he is.

    But, apparently your blinded by your silly convoluted fears of the boogie man.

    Wake up!!!! People like your give up your basic rights and freedoms because of fear.

    You contest my opinions and you call us desperate, for the simple fact that you are afraid. That’s also the reason why you never talk about the issues, but instead you vomit fear by calling liberals fascist. You’re a joke. Go take your zanex and go listen to some more fear mongering news delivered to your King by Rush Limpbag.

    It’s not “HATE” speech when it’s a FACT. The FACTS are this: 1. ISLAM DECLARED WAR on the USA on 9/11/2001. Where over 3,000 people were killed (many rescuers are dying today due to various harmful substances they breathed in during the rescue ops.). This was not war declared by “Moderate” muslims. Why do I say that? Because if you have actually taken the time to READ THE KORAN you will see that it is not moderate in any way shape or form and thereby makes anyone who follows said book/practice NOT MODERATE! Anyone who is a practicing muslim is thereby a threat to anyone who is NOT a muslim… again.. READ THE KORAN!

    FACT: muhammed was a pedophile. He married Aisha when she was between 9 – 12 years of age.
    FACT: muhammed could neither read nor write, tortured and murdered entire families and peple,
    therefore his name should never be capitalized!

    It seems that all the quotes from Gods word were left incomplete in your article. The Bible plainly says that your are either for God or you are against him. There is also that little bit of scripture that says if you put anyone before God, it is idolitry. Since the muslims certainly do not believe Jesus Christ is the savior and since Jesus and God are in fact one in the same, they are labeled by God himself as “idolitors”. You decide where this places them in the sight of God. There is no question to anyone who thoroughly understands God’s word. Thanks to all who serve and have served this great country and to everyone who does not want America to become the next socialist failure that many other nations have proven to be. Thanks also to you Mr. West for saying what so many of us feel. Don’t go away mad Mr. Obama, just go away.

    You have portrayed Allen West incorrectly. He does not condemn individual Muslims. Rather, he declares accurately that the fundamental tenets of Islam are intolerant, totalitarian and violent. He goes on to say that the ‘War on Terror’ is a misnomer, because terror is only a tactic. You must identify and fight the enemy who practices that ‘terror tactic’, and clearly that enemy is those fundamental activist elements of Islam such al-qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, hezbollah, etc.

  199. Concerned Patriot says:

    Read all the comment, have met West. Just because you are bat shit crazy doesn’t mean you can’t join the army or become a politician, in truth it probably helps in both. But really, West is trying to make enemies of patriotic dedicated Americans, the one who seeks to divide our country this ‘mcarthur jr.’ is an enemy to our ideals. If there are communists in Congress it may help to remind him that their citizenship is American and they were voted in by Americans. His tone is inappropriate unprofessional. Enemies are people who make attacks, not simply ideals that differ from your own personal views.

    Did someone say Allen West? Oh, you mean hate filled, purely self-serving, lying, scheming RINO Allen West? Ya, THAT Allen West.

    What does anyone, above all a supposedly dignified, honest conservative say about a man who is purely self-serving, who used the Tea Party via conniving lies to get elected only to later turn on same once the numerous Tea Party members (the one’s who are intelligent) figured out what a fraud and RINO West is and called him on same only to be referred by West as being – along with the Tea Party, “schizophrenic”?

    There’s more………..

    The same Allen West who is a proud member of the racist and anarchist, anti-Constitution Congressional Black Caucus.

    Hello!

    The same Allen West whose voting record is patently liberal – RINO. How can any self-respecting and dignified conservative support raising the debt ceiling, the wholly anti-Constitutional Patriot Act and NDAA which takes away civil liberties and due process, labeling all Americans as potential “terrorists” (are you? – think about that!), disallowing a woman her individual liberty and choice no matter how immoral it may be to some regarding voluntary abortion or medical abortion….., one cannot and must not legislate morality. Start with abortion and honestly, where do you stop?

    How can any self-respecting conservative not see through Allen West’s endless shameful firebrand self-serving promotion which is about one thing and one thing only…………….., Allen West, period.

    When it comes to elected officials, those werving as public servants this nation has seen the goood, the bad and the ugly. And it sadly will continue. Allen West is worse than ugly and he’s all about himself. Inasmuch as a number of Patrick Murphy’s positions do go against the grain of any self-respecting, honest and decent conservative – I, for one – I will not give my precious vote to a pathological liar, a RINO, an open fraud, a scheming self-serving imposter who also is/was a member of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, a supremacist motorcycle gang, as well a man who has the audacity to wear his military citations on his civilian clothing (such a disgraceful act that anyone who has served or is serving within our military knows full welll you never, ever do) and who was run out of the military for violation.

    Patrick Murphy has his faults and I strongly disagree with him on several subjects as I will continue to, but Murphy is not about himself, he is not a liar and that I can and will deal with.

    Myopic apologist conservatives wake up to the lying, self-serving fraud that is Allen West and demonstrate some diignity and propriety and vote West back onto the street where the scumbag belongs.

    And apologist, myopic liberals wake up to the vicious, ruthless, lying, racist hate-filled, anti-Constitution, anti-American, anti-caucasian, anti-Jew, open Marxist that is Obama whose entire game plan is to destroy America and vote that POS and his equally hate filled wife out, placing them back on the sttreet where they belong!

  205. Facts, Not Lies says:

    The Republicans never passed a “tax cut for the wealthy.” They passed tax cuts for everyone. The Bush Tax Cuts cut lower income taxes by the largest margin. Why is it that Obama keeps talking about letting the Bush Tax Cuts only expire for the highest tax brackets? Because the Bush Tax Cuts were tax cuts for everyone. If they weren’t Obama could let the entirety of the Bush Tax Cuts expire without affecting most people. Instead, he only wants 2% of the Bush Tax Cuts to expire. Evidently, he agrees with 98% of the bill.

    Riddles for all of you most well read Tea Party folks. The prize is a hat with a ticket in it’s band that says 10/6, to wear with your hero, Allen West.

    1) What president permitted all of the Bin Laden clan to FLY home immediately after 9/11? Yeah, when all the rest of us were grounded?

    Who let Bin Laden fade away at Tora Bora?

    How much structural steel will civilian jet fuel melt even when burned with vinyl, cloth, paper, foam rubber? Ever tried to melt structural steel with a kerosene blowtorch?

    Just asking, all I expect to her is basically blather.

    I am glad Allan West lost his seat. He is the perfect representation of the most mean-spirited extremes of the Republican Party: the Tea Party. Political extremes hurt people. West is as dangerous an extremist as the very terrorists who attack us, yet reasonable people would not blame the entire Republican party, would we…?

    If we really need to emphasize things more, toomanyof theeresponses seem to be form people who wouldthink nothing wrong with attacking someone like Gabrielle Giffords, or Ronald Reagan,for that matter, since Reagan authorized selling an AWACS to AYRABS! Cranks will be cranks, no matter the persuasion. Just a shame we can’t test voters for sanity, stability, and IQ. So, adios to all you beautiful people in tinfoil hats. Let’s all sing, to the tune ofanold Ray Charles hit, “hit the road, Al, dontcha come round here no more no more no more no more! Hit the road, Al, and dontcha come round here no more!” Maybe they can move to Georgia, too, put us Floridians out of our misery?
