Allen West | Barack Obama

Rep. Allen West Upset That Obama Hasn't Yet Released 'The Angel of Death in the Form of an American Bald Eagle'

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) went off on Facebook in reaction to Obama's UN speech yesterday with some bizarre language:

WestMy statement to the United Nations would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence”

Here's the rest of his statement if you're interested:

In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) “offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!

  1. I've read the whole resolution and perhaps I missed it, but there's nothing in there about outlawing anti-Islam statements:

    The full text of resolution 1618 (2005) reads, as follows:

    “The Security Council,

    “Reaffirming all its previous relevant resolutions on Iraq, in particular resolution 1546 (2004) of 8 June 2004,

    “Reaffirming its unwavering support for the Iraqi people in their political transition, as outlined in resolution 1546 (2004), further reaffirming Iraq’s independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity and calling upon the international community to stand by the Iraqi people in their pursuit of peace, stability and democracy,

    “Reaffirming also the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and its relevant resolutions, in particular its resolutions 1373 (2001) of 28 September 2001, 1566 (2004) of 8 October 2004, and 1267 (1999) of 25 October 1999 and subsequent resolutions,

    “Reaffirming the need to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts,

    “Commending the courage of the Iraqi people who are working bravely in support of the political and economic transition currently taking place in spite of the grave threat of terrorism,

    “Welcoming the active steps undertaken by the Government of Iraq towards achieving national dialogue and unity and encouraging continuation of these efforts,

    “1. Condemns without reservation and in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks that have taken place in Iraq, and regards any act of terrorism as a threat to peace and security;

    “2. Takes note particularly of the shameless and horrific attacks in recent weeks which have resulted in over 100 deaths, including 32 children, employees of the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq, and a member and an expert adviser of the Commission charged with drafting a permanent constitution for a new, democratic Iraq, Mijbil Sheikh Isa and Dhamin Hussin Ubaidi;

    “3. Further notes with great concern that attacks on foreign diplomats in Iraq have increased in number, and have resulted in the murder or kidnapping of such diplomats;

    “4. Expresses its deepest sympathy and condolences to the victims of these terrorist attacks and their families, and to the people and Government of Iraq;

    “5. Affirms that acts of terrorism must not be allowed to disrupt Iraq’s political and economic transition currently taking place, including the constitutional drafting process and its referendum, outlined in resolution 1546 (2004);

    “6. Reaffirms the obligations of Member States under resolutions 1373 (2001) of 28 September 2001, 1267 (1999) of 15 October 1999, 1333 (2000) of 19 December 2000, 1390 (2002) of 16 January 2002, 1455 (2003) of 17 January 2003, 1526 (2004) of 30 January 2004, and 1617 (2005) of 29 July 2005 and other relevant international obligations with respect, inter alia, to terrorist activities in and from Iraq or against its citizens, and specifically strongly urges Member States to prevent the transit of terrorists to and from Iraq, arms for terrorists, and financing that would support terrorists, and re-emphasizes the importance of strengthening the cooperation of the countries in the region, particularly neighbours of Iraq, in this regard;

    “7. Urges all States, in accordance with their obligations under resolution 1373 (2001), to cooperate actively in efforts to find and bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these barbaric acts;

    “8. Expresses its utmost determination to combat terrorism, in accordance with its responsibilities under the Charter of the United Nations;

    “9. Calls on the international community to support fully the Government of Iraq in exercising its responsibilities to provide protection to the diplomatic community, United Nations staff and other foreign civilian personnel working in Iraq;

    “10. Decides to remain seized of the matter.”

  5. Once again, the Republican party prove how much they have very much in common with Ahmdinejad: hateful warmongering extremists.

  7. What are his qualifications ?
    What education,if any, has he had ?
    What can he do ?
    Or is he just another lame useless mouth, self serving with his gung-ho bravura......hoping to keep his job.

    The crucible question is : who voted in this excuse for a man ?

  10. Alan West is such a sad little inconsequential figure.

  11. Dear Allen:

    Thank you for sharing those marvelously macho thoughts with us.

    Now, please sit down and shut up.

  12. He looks like a character from a 90s-era "urban"-oriented sitcom. I can picture the character, but I can't think of the actor's name or the name of the show. Was it "A Different World"? It's like West's whole persona and outlook is from 20-something years ago.

    Hope he enjoys his little stint as Republican houseboy. Suspect it'll all be over soon enough.

  13. He is right about one thing:

    The Obama administration did engage in a misinformation campaign trying to attribute the attacks to the Youtube video when there is in fact evidence that it was a planned terror attack (which happened to nicely coincide with the video). Bush lied, Obama lied, they are all the same in one way -- they are liars.

    Neither major party deserves to be in power. Throw ALL the bums out.

  14. Always remember that Mr West said that when he was in the military he had a higher security clearence than the POTUS. To my knowledge, he has never retracted that statement.

  15. OOOOO! Get her!

    Ssssomebody's got some anger! It's okay, Allen, kissing a boy for the first time IS very scary. But also very exciting. you will like yourself (and thus the whole world) a lot better afterwards.
