Left-Wing Activists Admit Allen West Terrifies Them (http://pjmedia.com/blog/left-wing-activists-admit-allen-west-terrifies-them/)
“If we don't take him down now, he's raising millions of dollars, and he's going to set what the new normal is for the Republican Party."

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is the activist Left’s number one congressional target this election cycle because he poses an existential threat to progressivism, a prominent professional left-wing organizer suggests.



West is “a national rising star in the Tea Party,” Becky Bond explained during a panel discussion at the Campaign for America’s Future’s recent Take Back the American Dream confab in Washington, D.C.


The famously outspoken retired Army lieutenant colonel with the special talent for getting under Democrats’ skin “is going to start to define” what the Republican Party stands for, said Bond, president of the well-funded Credo SuperPAC.





A super PAC is a kind of political action committee that may raise and spend unlimited funds from corporations, unions, associations, and individuals to overtly advocate for or against a candidate. Credo SuperPAC is an outgrowth of Credo Mobile, the wireless reseller that donates part of its profits to leftist groups such as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, Color of Change, and the Sierra Club Foundation.

The danger, as Bond sees it, is that if West’s brand of politics catches on nationwide, American politics may shift rightward.


“And he’s a freshman,” Bond said. “If we don’t take him down now, he’s raising millions of dollars, and he’s going to set what the new normal is for the Republican Party.”


Bond bragged that her group is harassing West (“bird dogging him at every attempt,” in her words) in order to waste his campaign’s resources. “We’re getting to [West and Tea Party-backed congressmen] at every level.”


It is not hyperbole to say that liberals loathe the solidly conservative first-term congressman with the fire of a thousand suns. Credo SuperPAC calls West “racist, sexist, anti-science, hypocritical and downright crazy.”

Under the words “Beyond Crazy,” Credo SuperPAC’s website links to articles online that trumpet West’s various heresies against political correctness. Unlike most on the Left, West is unapologetically pro-Israel and pro-life, positions that probably helped get him maligned as “racist” and “sexist.”

An Iraq war veteran, West describes Islam as “a totalitarian theocratic political ideology.” He doesn’t bash the United States for invading Iraq and Afghanistan as left-wingers are wont to do.


He has said that Fort Hood shooter Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who reportedly said Muslims should “rise up” and attack Americans as payback for the U.S. war in Iraq, is a Muslim extremist. This embarrassingly trite assertion is somehow controversial on the Left. West also refuses to appease terrorism apologists who prefer to treat Hasan as a mere sufferer of what they call “pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.”


Because West supported Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wisc.) extremely modest budget-balancing proposal, the PAC accused him of voting “to abolish Medicare.” Because he’s not a member of the manmade global warming cult, West is labeled a knuckle-dragging flat-earther.


West is being targeted as part of Credo SuperPAC’s “Take Down the Tea Party Ten” campaign. Eight enemies have been selected so far. The other Tea Party-friendly Republican congressmen with bullseyes painted on them are Steve King (Iowa), Dan Lungren (Calif.), Mike Fitzpatrick (Penn.), Joe Walsh (Ill.), Frank Guinta (N.H.), Sean Duffy (Wisc.), and Chip Cravaack (Minn.).


CREDO Mobile president Michael Kieschnick, a member of George Soros’s Democracy Alliance, boasts that his activist network has 2.5 million activists and has given upwards of $70 million to left-wing groups since 1985.


CREDO SuperPAC has taken in almost $2 million so far, according to the Federal Election Commission database. Patricia Richardson of TV’s Home Improvement and movie actress Stockard Channing have given the PAC $1,000 and $750, respectively.


West’s enemies formed a new super PAC earlier this month with the express purpose of taking West out. Anti-American billionaire George Soros has reportedly pledged $5 million to the “Dump West” super PAC.

This explains a great deal, such as ThinkingBig's kneejerk attacks whenever West appeared in a thread. If Rubio takes the Veep slot, and his senate seat is up for grabs, West ought to be nominated.

"love Obama" and "pull the lever" are far from synonymous. What has the GOP got to offer now? Mitt Romney? Give me a break. If you will recall the primary, I was all about Gingrich .... to my own surprise. I would have pulled the lever for Gingrich, but Mitt Romney? Do you have any idea how gullible (or perhaps dishonest) you have to be to be a practicing Mormon?

Sorry, but there isn't a viable option being offered by the GOP and my position since Romney's inevitability was established has been disgust that of 310 million Americans our choices are reduced to Obama and Romney. Be objective- can you honestly say that either of those men should be President?

What the GOP has to offer...is someone who actually loves this country...has run a business...has been the chief executive of a state before...and doens't want to turn us into the next USSR as the current occupant of the WH does.

Yes I can. And his last name isn't Obama. The man is wholly unqualified to hold a city government job much less the highest position int he country.

Romney's not perferct..not my first choice...but he's a damn sight better than the alternative.

With this election it is all about removing obama. Romney isn't my first choice either (I was for Gingrich also), but in order to remove obama I am voting for Romney. Yes, I will hold my nose, but obama has to go, and we have no choice.

No, in fact I did not see those. I got to the fourth or fifth page and stopped.

Then, lets do this. What are your views? I mean from the short time I been here, you have insulted my faith, you insulted my vp pick, and you insulted me personally. I would like to know where you stand on the issues. Then we will see where it goes. All you have to do is read my introduction thread to see my views.

It doesn't matter.

Romney will not secure the border and deport the illegals. (See Utah)

Romney will not support nationwide shall issue or right to carry law. (see Massachusetts)

Romney will not veto a Dream Act or similar legislation.

Romney will not engage in hardball on corporations to repatriate jobs.

Romney's answer to everything is "lower taxes".

What makes you think he won't? He changed his veiws since he was governor. I guess we will have to wait and see what he does when he gets in there. At least we know that he can't be any worse than obama. Then a tree couldn't be any worse than obama. obama makes Jimmy Carter look like a great President.

And you know this how?


We already know Obama will allow more and more illeagals to flood across the border...and if you can tell an illegal Mexican from an illegal Arab in the same clothes you're better than I am...Obama will use Aurora to take away the RKBA....he will continue to drive business' that should be producing in this country to foreign shores...to him the way the economy is now is the "new norm"...he doesn't believe in small business nor that hard work gets you ahead...you owe your soul to the Government in his eyes...and Obama's answer to everything is raise taxes...which will do nothing but kill the economy.

Hardly. Progressives deserve to live under their own governance until they admit that it doesn't work.

Just becaue Allen West doesn't toe the leftist line on gay marriage doesn't make him stupid, just as toeing the line doesn't make you smart.

I can certainly say that one of them should not be president, and I will vote for the other. Pulling the lever for Obama is pulling the lever for American failure and decline. Is that your lesser of two evils?


It doesn't matter.

No? From Wikipedia's summary of Romney positions"

Romney favors increased legal immigration (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/Immigration_to_the_United_States) to the United States —today, roughly 1 million people per year—[218] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-217) and opposes illegal immigration.[219] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-218) In a speech to the Republican National Hispanic Assembly, Romney said, "I want to make sure we continue an open door in immigration."[220] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-219) He supports the deportation of illegal immigrants, prioritizes a secure border as well as employer verification (E-Verify (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/E-Verify)), and opposes granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Romney supports giving "a biometrically-enabled and tamperproof card to non-citizens and a national database for non-citizens."[221] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-220) He says he would like to see illegal immigrants register with the government, pay taxes, and apply for citizenship, but that they should not be given any priority or special treatment over immigrants who have applied for citizenship legally.[222] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-221)
Romney opposes the DREAM Act (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/DREAM_Act).[223] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-222) He also supports using E-verify (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/E-verify) in the same manner it is applied by Arizona SB 1070 (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/Arizona_SB_1070) in Arizona. He proposes to deal with illegal immigrants currently in the country via "self-deportation (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/wiki/Self-deportation)," which he describes as a system where "people decide they can do better by going home because they can’t find work here because they don't have legal documentation to allow them to work here."[224] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-223)[225] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-224)[226] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-225) When Romney was asked about President Obama's 2012 executive order on immigration policy, he responded by saying that he would put his own long-term solution in place at a later date. educations or served in the military, but that he would reveal his full policy on the subject at a later date.[227] (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/#cite_note-226)




Romney will not support nationwide shall issue or right to carry law. (see Massachusetts)

To be fair, neither would I. It's a state function, and the Constitution does not give congress the power to impose this on the states, just as it cannot ban concealed carry within the states.


Romney will not veto a Dream Act or similar legislation.
He says otherwise. See above.


Romney will not engage in hardball on corporations to repatriate jobs.
Nor should he. He should play hardball with congress to make the US conducive to repatriation of jobs.


Romney's answer to everything is "lower taxes".
And you object to lowering taxes because...?

Nova, just because YOU don't believe or want to believe what's on Romney's site is irrelevant. What is relevant is that it says what it says, and you saying he will or won't do something even though his site says otherwise is just plain arrogant on your part. You don't know what he will or won't do and just because you don't like him doesn't mean you are correct.
