They Can Dish it Out, but They Can’t Take It

They Can Dish it Out, but They Can’t Take It
Let’s see, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was the leader of what one might call a small riot (we’ll just call it a very unruly crowd) in front of the Florida office of United States Congressman Allen West.  The YouTube video shows her screaming at the top of her lungs and shouting lies about the Congressman, but that’s OK because she’s a radical feminist.  No one in the media questioned such outrageous behavior by a member of Congress against another member of Congress.  No one asked why a Congressperson from another district in Florida would be standing outside the office of a fellow member of Congress trying to incite a crowd to rage with venom clearly inspired by hatred.

But the mob scene outside the Florida office of Congressman Allen West was pretty mild stuff for a pit bull like Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  When the story first broke of the awful Tucson shooting of a fellow Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, you can be sure that Congresswoman Schultz was one of the first to falsely blame conservatives and Tea Party members without any evidence whatsoever.  And when the facts came out and the truth was told that the shooting was by a clearly deranged person, you can be confident that she then blamed the climate of hate created by the right.  She, like the President and the lap dog news media, called for civility of speech, but that civility was of course only to muzzle their opponents.

Where was that civility of speech in front of Congressman Allen West’s Florida office?  Where was that civility on the floor of the United States House of Representatives the other day when she accused the Congressman of trying to destroy both Social Security and Medicare?  It was politics as usual, not civility, that Congresswoman Schultz had in mind.  When, in fact, has Debbie Wasserman Schultz ever been known as a person of mild temperament or civil behavior? 

While I might not have used the same words that were used by Congressman Allen West to describe her, she certainly deserved them.  Congressperson Schultz can dish it out, but she can’t take it.  She’s used to slandering others and having them take it without speaking back.  When those slandered, like Congressman West, give it right back to her, she puts on her little girl act and gathers her leftwing girl friends around her to pretend that she really is a lady.  A lady she is not.  Feminists and radicals like Debbie Wasserman Schultz think they have the right to slander and smear with impunity.  Well, Allen West had had enough and he bit back. 

And by the way, who is Allen West?  While Congresswoman Schultz wouldn’t recognize the US Constitution if it hit her in the face, Congressman and Lieutenant Colonel West is committed to it.  He is a man of great personal character and courage.  Here is his story taken directly from his website…

Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (US Army, Retired) was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and is third of four generations of military servicemen in his family.  His parents instilled in him a very basic principle, love of God and Country.  In 2004, when it was time to retire from more than twenty years of service in the US Army, he brought his wife and two young daughters to Broward County, Florida, where he taught high school for one year.  He then returned to Afghanistan as an advisor to the Afghan army, an assignment he finished in November 2007.

Allen West received his Bachelors degree from University of Tennessee and Masters degree from Kansas State University, both in political science.  He also holds a Master of Military Arts and Sciences from the US Army Command and General Staff Officer College in political theory and military operations.

“Education is the great equalizer,” he says. “With a good education, any child in America can live his dream.”

Allen West knows that for our children to live their dreams, they need to be safe.  He has served in several combat zones: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was battalion commander for the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and in Afghanistan, where he trained Afghan officers to take on the responsibility of securing their own country.

In his Army career, Col. West has been honored many times, including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals (one with Valor), and a Valorous Unit Award.  He received his valor award as a Captain in Desert Shield/Storm, was the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year in 1993, and was a Distinguished Honor Graduate III Corps Assault School.  He proudly wears the Army Master Parachutist badge, Air Assault badge, Navy/Marine Corps parachutist insignia, Italian parachutist wings, and German proficiency badge (Bronze award).

Allen is an avid distance runner, a PADI Master certified SCUBA diver, motorcyclist, and attends Community Christian Church in Tamarac, Florida.

Excellence is a West family tradition.  His wife, Angela, holds an MBA and Ph.D. and works as a financial planner.  His oldest daughter, Aubrey, attends Archbishop McCarthy HS and his youngest daughter, Austen, attends Cooper City Christian Academy.

So why does Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the left in general, have such a hatred for Allen West?  There are two things about Allen West that cause liberals like Schultz to become unhinged.  It’s not just that Allen is a conservative or even a military war hero.  They don’t like that, but they will grudgingly tolerate it.

Liberals like Schultz feel threatened by Allen West serving in Congress.  While they dislike white conservatives, they froth at the mouth at the thought of a conservative black man or woman serving in Congress.  The election of a thoughtful, intelligent African American conservative like Allen West gives lie to their false narrative that all black Americans think alike and it shatters the myth that all conservatives are racist. 

Liberalism and those on the radical left like Schultz cling by a thread to their political power.  It is based solely on their ability to perpetuate the lie that conservatives are inherently racist and therefore no black person can be a conservative.  Their goal is not just to defeat Allen West, but to besmirch his character and destroy him so that other conservative African Americans are intimidated from seeking public office. 

Power is everything to a liberal Congresswoman like Schultz.  It is the end all and be all.  Everything can be justified in the name of gaining and staying in power.  The end justifies the means.  If a lie helps a Congressman or President to stay in power, then there is nothing wrong with telling lies. 

Liberals don’t see individuals.  They think only in terms of Marxist class warfare.  They intentionally pit rich against poor, unions against employers, young verses old, women against men, black against white, etc.  It’s all designed to gain power.  To liberal politicians, Black Americans are just another group to be used and manipulated in order to perpetuate themselves in power.  And in order to maintain control over the African American community they must perpetuate the lie that the conservative philosophy is at its core, racist.  It matters not a whit to them that this lie helps to perpetuate black poverty and unemployment.  To a liberal politician or a member of the liberal media, the important thing is power.

When a Clarence Thomas or Allen West comes along they lose it.  They write articles hoping that Clarence Thomas will get heart disease and die early.  They vehemently utter smears and slander without regard to accuracy or truth.  They organize mobs to throw Oreo cookies at black conservatives when they run for public office.  They can’t debate on the basis of the merit of new ideas and programs proposed by conservatives because they know their tired old ideas have failed and been found wanting.  For instance, they know that school voucher programs for poor people help African Americans lift themselves up out of poverty, but the threat of losing power with another of their groups—the labor unions—keep them from supporting such efforts.  Besides, if African Americans really do succeed economically and climb the ladder of economic success, it will no longer be possible for the Democrats to count on them in the next election.  And remember, maintaining power is the holy grail of liberalism and their vehicle, the Democratic Party.

Liberal politicians and their allies in the news media and in the academy hate and detest Allen West because he is a threat to their power.  It’s time for all conservatives to rally around Congressman West so that other black conservatives will not be intimidated from running for and getting elected to Congress in the years to come.  Call the office of Allen West today (202-225-3026) and let him know that you stand with him.
