The Right Scoop calls this “red meat for conservatives, “ and that it is.
When a reporter from Red Alert Politics asked him, “Do you have any regrets about making those comments, Congressman?” West answered without hesitation – (in fact he didn’t even wait for the guy to finish asking his question): “No, I don’t regret it, whatsoever”. Then he launched into an in depth defense for his assertion, reciting the evidence most of us hardcore conservatives already know. In fact, I’ve been saying since the beginning of 2009, it’s time to rebrand the Democrat party as Democrat Socialists, because that is what they are.
More Congressmen and women should be speaking out like this. It’s not mean, it’s not “unfair”, it’s not “red-baiting”, it’s not “McCarthyism”, and it’s certainly not “extreme” to “call a spade a spade”, as West put it. They’re the “extreme” ones, as anyone who follows the left, understands.
It’s not difficult to make the case, as West does beautifully, here:
Allen West is America’s Congressman.
Newsbusters: Robin Leach: Obama Is a ‘Socialist’ – He Is ‘Whipping Up This Racial War and This Economic Divide’
CAVUTO: Just set it to record. You are not a fan of what is going on here.
LEACH: No, I think it is deadly dangerous and I don’t use those two words lightly.
Look, what Obama is proposing you’ve got to cut right down to it, it is socialism. It is so ugly and evil. It doesn’t work – it’s never worked. And we went through this in Britain until Maggy Thatcher and rescued us from a fate worse than what’s going to happen here.
CAVUTO: He takes great umbrage to that socialist description.
LEACH: Of course, because it is the truth.
CAVUTO: He says, “I’m trying to level the playing field.”
LEACH: What is level the playing field? It’s a colloquial, warm, fuzzy expression that means I am a socialist.
CAVUTO: OK. I’m going to try this one you. They argue that over the last ten years, 20 years more to the point, the rich have lopsidedly benefited from what’s been going on and they believe that the only way to correct that, Robin, is to bring the rich down by paying more in taxes.
LEACH: Punish the rich. Whip the rich. Make them as middle income and as poor as the people who aren’t rich.
