Mr. West goes to Washington.
In one of the Tea Party’s biggest victories, Florida’s Allen West defeated incumbent Democrat Ron Klein in a rematch of their 2008 race…West encouraged his supporters to use violence in suppressing the votes of opponents, saying, “You’ve got to make the fellow scared to come out of his house”…calls Wall Street Reform a “sham.” He’s advocated for eliminating the Departments of Energy and Education…On immigration, he claims that illegal immigrants should not have access to care in emergency rooms… West’s first decision as Representative-elect was to choose as his chief of staff right-wing radio talk show host Joyce Kaufman, who called for illegal immigrants to be “hung on the central square.” West said: “I hate big-tent. I hate inclusiveness. And I hate outreach.”
this is what’s going on. this is real life. it’s actually occurring.
