Yup , Presidential material

By DARREN SAMUELSOHN



Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said Thursday that Na zi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would be "very proud" of Democrats for shifting public sentiment against Republicans, and he blamed the press for helping spread their message.

"If Joseph Goebbels was around, he'd be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine," West told reporters in the Capitol. "I think that you have, and let's be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out."

West was responding to a question about Congress’s low poll numbers and the fact that public blame is centered more on the Republicans. A Pew Research Center poll released Thursday found two in three voters in favor of tossing out most members of Congress in 2012, with a larger share of the blame aimed at the GOP.

The freshman Republican, whose district is in heavily Jewish South Florida, said his reference to Goebbels wasn’t designed to link Democrats to the overall Na zi party.

"I'm talking about propaganda, OK," he said. "Don't start taking my words and twisting it around. I'm talking about propaganda. And I think that's a very important thing. When you tell me that everyone thinks that the only people on Capitol Hill are House Republicans, it's because that's what's being portrayed, is that there's nobody else up here."

"Once again, you guys will take whatever I say and you will spin it to try to demonize me or demagogue me,” West added. “What I'm talking about is a person that was the minister of propaganda. And I'm talking about propaganda. So please. I'll be prepared to wake up tomorrow and you guys make up some crazy story. Whatever."

West added that Republicans "need to do a better job of being messengers."

"It's the truth. I think that we are not proactive messengers. We are reactive. We need to be able to go out and hone our message and all of us need to have that, whether from the RNC, the NRSC, the NRCC. Every one of us should be on the same sheet of music as far as what we're saying."

West has drawn criticism several times before for making [censored] -related references.

During his 2010 campaign, West refused to apologize for accusing Democratic trackers of “Gestapo-type intimidation tactics.” Then-Rep. Ron Klein blasted West’s remarks, saying the Republican had “shown reckless disregard and appalling disrespect to Holocaust victims and survivors."

Per your own rules you are not permitted to criticize republicans who make naz i references, since you did not call out democrats who did that to Bush before.

Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...

Why would someone who referenced a political party be called a race baiter? The na zis were not a race.

Why would someone who referenced a political party be called a race baiter? The na zis were not a race.

GOP Rep. Allen West believes that the Democratic Party is akin to a modern-day “plantation.”

In an interview on Wednesday night’s “O’Reilly Factor,” he told guest host Laura Ingraham that he is the “modern-day Harriet Tubman“ and that he wants to lead fellow African Americans away from the the ”21st century plantation.”

West made extremely bold statements throughout the interview, apparently undeterred by any negative response he might receive from the Democratic Party or from fellow African Americans. Commenting on anger that was seen at a Congressional Black Caucus (of which West is the only GOP member) town hall meeting in Detroit this week, he said:


“The people on that plantation are upset because they’ve been disregarded, disrespected and their concerns are not cared about…I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman to kind of lead people on the underground railroad away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”

West went on to dismiss some African American leaders as “nothing more than overseers over that plantation” and he stated his belief that white liberals have relied upon people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to support Democratic policies. These individuals, he claims, have failed to addresses important matters. West also discussed recent flash mobs (as per the Huffington Post):


The freshman Republican said the fact that black leaders have done nothing in response to the recent spate of flash mobs in U.S. cities is proof of their disconnect from the black community. This summer has been marked by flash mobs in several cities, including Philadelphia and Cleveland, and are thought to be fueled by growing discontent among unemployed urban youth.

He also went on to say that Republicans have not done well drawing black voters into the conservative movement. That said, he explained that there is an opportunity for conservatives to reach African Americans by connecting with them on the issues of “individual responsibility and accountability, faith and family, [and] hard work ethic.”
