Apparently lunatic teabagger and disgraced former army officer Allen West has his fee-fees hurt over this ad put out by challenger Patrick Murphy in their congressional race down in Florida.
Here’s West’s response:
“What kind of man who has never worn the uniform attacks an honorably discharged combat veteran for acting to protect the lives of his soldiers? A desperate man and apparently the same kind of man who calls a decorated combat veteran a coward, gets into drunken bar fights, verbally assaults police officers and then uses his family’s connections to get out of trouble. Patrick Murphy is a spoiled brat and a truly terrible person.”
Let me just say this about that — as a United States Marine I view what Allen West did as nothing short of criminal and deserving of serious jail time.
The fact that he got off relatively Scott free for his deplorable actions speaks ill of the way the army applies the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
But West’s disgusting and dangerous actions speak even more about who and what type of person Allen West is.
I’ve read extensively the accounts of his actions and the criminal charges he faced because of them and I will state without hesitation that Allen West was a disgrace to his uniform, America is lucky to have forced him from the ranks of its uniformed services, and he is lucky he didn’t end up in Leavenworth, where he belonged.
