Rep. Allen West's Attack called "sexist, ugly"

By George Bennett

Posted: 9:29 a.m. Wednesday, July 20, 2011

EMILY’s List, the political action committee that backs female candidates (almost exclusively Democrats) who support abortion rights, accused U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, of a “sexist, ugly attack” for his scathing Tuesday e-mail to U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston.

Not long after the PAC put out its statement, Democratic candidate Lois Frankel — who has been endorsed by EMILY’s List and used it for money-raising help in her primary against Patrick Murphy — weighed in with a statement criticizing West’s “out of control, rude, sexist and completely inappropriate remarks.”

In addition to calling Wasserman Schultz “vile, unprofessional and despicable” and “a coward” for criticizing him on the floor of the House, West’s e-mail added, “You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!”

Said Frankel: “Congressman West owes an apology to every woman who’s been told to ‘shut up’ and sit quietly in the corner and to every senior citizen who, if West and his right wing allies get their way, will have to worry about whether they will be able to afford their health care.”


Lois Frankel is running against West when he's up for re-election. Read the comments, this is why Florida is in such a mess. This is the thinking that makes the paper.

LOL. Liberals can dish it out but they HATE the pushback.

To use the liberals language:

West told truth to POWER!!!111!!1!11!

It's karma. She got what she deserved.

She got hoisted on her petard!!111!!11!

West slapped her down. (Liberals would probably say "bitch slapped")

West is my hero!!!! I LOVE him.

Wasserman Schultz is GOING down!!11!!11

West for PRESIDENT!!11!!11!


Oh and liberals. When one of yours acts like Wasserman Schultz did and said what she did - it doesn't matter what any of you say about what West said. Was West civil. No. But then Wasserman Schultz wasn't civil either and SHE STARTED IT. You can't continually complain about Republicans being uncivil when your side starts it.

Well you can, but thinking people see the hypocrisy and think badly of YOU. Wasserman-Schultz isn't going to gain points by claiming victim status. Neither are liberals.

But you can have a nice circle jerk at DU like always.

That's pretty much it. He doesn't live on the Democrat plantation and dared to stray from the pack.
