Homophobic Rep. Allen West and Potential VP Pick Won't Have Gay Marriage Discussion on CNN: VIDEO


Congressman Allen West (R-FL), an outspoken opponent of 'DADT' repeal who has said that being gay is a choice comparable to choosing the flavor of one's ice cream, refused today to have a discussion with CNN's Kyra Phillips about marriage equality, accusing her of trying to lead him down a "rabbit hole".

West has been rumored to be on Mitt Romney's short list for VP.

  1. I don't know about anyone else, but I had to stop listening to him after 6 mins. He was about as interesting as a cardboard box.

  2. Why CAN'T we discuss the unbelievable injustice and discrimination faced by gays and lesbians....AND discuss the economy...AND....thousands of other topcis.

    WHAT THE HELL?! What...our government and elected officials can only focus on ONE single topic at a time? That is the biggest bull spewed by the most anti gay individual. Believe that

  3. Whenever someone tells you "sorry, there's more important issues" in relation to gay rights....what they really mean is "I don't believe in gay rights"

    There will always be "more important issues" in relation to *any* topic you bring up. Any topic, I can think of a more tragic occurance in the world that trumps the "value" yet that doesn't mean both issues don't deserve the integrity of being resolved. And they can be too. But the anti gay ilk have manipulated a cliche called "more important issues" to deflect from us attaining our full equal rights. Don't ever buy into it.

  4. Another reason to say there's more important issues is because you don't know which way the wind is blowing and it is too dangerous to take a stand.

  6. Romney's choice of the uber extremist Allen West as his V P would be an even bigger gift to the democrats than McCain's choice of Palin.

  7. if they actually believed that there are/were "more important issues" then they'd have been working on those "issues" for the last two years.

    what has the GOP done? attacked art that "offended religious people", waged war on a woman's reproductive rights and health, attacked LGBT people whenever possible, and haven't done a damned thing to help the american people or its economy.

    at some point it crosses from "differences of opinion" to willfully ignorant delusion.

  8. Hey Lyam or Ryan or whatever, most people on this site are too smart to fall for your scam. Go over to Fox, they believe anything, even that Fox noise is fair and balanced. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

  9. Wow, how convenient for you, the word "Homophobic". Fling out labels you racists. See, I can label you too. Doesn't feel good, does it. So, he's "Homophobic" and you are "Racist", now, how does that advance any conversation?

    IMHO, Steve

  10. So Graphicjack, all Rep. West is to you is just another African-American, not an accomplished leader. How sad that you apparently don't believe African-Americans (if Republican) could have any substance, just a "Token". Sad.

  11. Markus, Markus, Markus, race wars??? Marcus (or is it Manson), I really think we are all past that crap, move on.

  12. Moony, the vitreal is offputting. Rep. West is terrified? Do you have any idea of his Military background? I seriously doubt that Gay anything would be terrifing to a man of his background. If gay marriage is so important to you, go and get married, just find a church, and get married, people have been doing it for over a hundred years. I hope you find it more sucessful than I did (three times) (I'm beginning to think it was me). Why is it so important to you that all Americans recognize your choice to marry whom you wish? Go, be happy, just don't expect me to accept it as the new norm.
