GOP Candidate: ‘Left Wing Liberal Socialists Are Stinking Up the Place’

Allen West, a retired lieutenant colonel who’s making his second run for Congressfrom a south Florida swing district next year, pens a columnfor Human Events that touches on almost every far-right base. West is angry that Rep. Ron Klein (D-Fla.), the incumbent congressman, isn’t making himself available for town halls, and that Democrats are attacking conservative protesters. “It seems they are resorting to their normal Saul Alinsky ‘Rules for Radicals’ tactics,” West muses. “Rule #5, Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
It gets angrier from there:

  • “the DNC is running insidious advertisements and the White House has launched its “Great American Snitch” program at”
  • “dare you speak of the anointed one and you are a racist.”
  • “Left wing blogs attack Governor Sarah Palin and made allegations that her young Son Trig is not hers.”
  • “No one is questioning the law license inactive status of First Lady Michele Obama. And what is up with twenty-two staffers for the First Lady Michele?”
  • “The Bush twins were regularly part of media attacks, dare no one speak of the Obama daughters who attend wonderful — and very expensive — Sidwell Friends private school.”
  • “As a 22 year US Army combat veteran I can tell you when I smell fear, and the left wing liberal socialists are stinking up the place.”
Now, the district that West is trying to take for the GOP is a classic swing seat; it voted only 52-48 for Obama in 2008, and West lost an underdog campaignto Rep. Klein by only 10 points. It’s saying something that West would eschew an under-the-radar moderate campaign and instead breath fire on a national conservative Website in order to gin up support from the party’s base. Was there any successful 2006 Democratic challenger who launched a campaign by asking why no one was investigating First Lady Laura Bush’s scandals?
