Seriously, Allen West Is a Moron

There have been some staggeringly stupid reactions to the massacre at the offices of a satirical magazine in Paris, but war criminal wingnut Allen West takes the cake for the single dumbest response I’ve seen. He actually compares it to the removal of a Christian flag from a public veterans memorial in North Carolina.

After yesterday’s tragedy in France, we awake today to a story which demonstrates how we got to that point, and why we are losing the ideological and cultural battle against Islamo-fascism.

As reported by the Washington Times, “The City of King, North Carolina, has settled a four-year battle in agreeing to remove a veteran’s memorial that featured a praying Soldier and a Christian flag.”

“After spending $50,000 in legal fees, the city voted 3-2 Tuesday to approve a settlement agreement in the lawsuit, Steven Hewett v. the City of King, the Winston-Salem Journal reported. The city agreed not to fly the Christian flag, to end its flag lottery policy, and to remove the statue depicting a soldier kneeling before a cross-shaped marker, the paper said.”

So you see, not flying a Christian flag over a taxpayer-funded veterans memorial on public property is evidence of “Islamo-fascism.” And if they’d decided to fly a Muslim flag instead? That would be “Islamo-fascism” too. Unless Christians are given all the privilege and allowed to have total hegemony in America, the Muslims win. Because there couldn’t possibly be any alternatives in between those two things, right? Like maybe the government staying the hell out of it and not trying to impose anyone’s religion on us, maybe?

    On his fact finding mission he went to King. From what I understand, he had a heckuva a time holding down the statue of the soldier and performing a mock execution on it.

    Wait a minute! I thought it was communism that led the removal of the praying soldier statue and the Christian flag. Can we get a consensus on just which bogeyman is hiding under our beds?

    The people of Florida elected this loon. And almost did it again a second time. The stupidity is as astounding as the shame those morons should feel.

    I wonder what Allen would say to this?

    @2 Don’t be silly there is only one bogeyman commu-islamo-atheo-kenyan-feminist-liberal- lizardpeopleism. He just uses many names.

    He was on Book TV (CSpan2) this weekend. I caught a few minutes (all I could stand), he was railing against the FFRF for attacking our Judeo-Christian founding and similar garbage about using the Declaration of Independence as a tool for knowing how to interpret the Constitution.

    I hadn’t heard him speak before, he does make it sound like he knows what he is talking about.

    I thought it was Islamo-communism…

    One of the best (cartoon) comments I’ve seen is a link my daughter sent me….http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/09/uderzo-charlie-hebdo_n_6443668.html though one might have to be an Asterix fan to truly appreciate it.

    Reminds me of a joke Allen West once told me:

    “An atheist walks into a bar.”

    “Islamo-fascism!”

    Was Mr. West for or against using the DofI when interpreting the U.S. Constitution?

    @Michael Heath

    Assuming West is for DofI. Most fundies and fools zero in on the ‘endowed by their creator’ language over the rest as it provides them a nerf-like hammer to smash god into the constitution.

    My favourite part of the Declaration

    He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners
