Allen West uses Memorial day as an opportunity to ramp up hatred against Muslims, attack US Military Leadership Decisions, and ask forgiveness for war crimes.
Allen West embodies what the rest of the World hates about AMERICA, and legitimizes that which he continually spreads fear about.
Those who demean the Character of America to Justify their actions are the true enemy of this Republic.
Excerpt from West's Website:
"As we are a Nation at war with Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism, let us stop to give honor to those who have made the “last full measure of devotion”. Sir Edmund Burke stated, “all that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. God has blessed us with an indomitable spirit of Americans who throughout history have done something, defended us, that is what they do."
"At a time when our Military is being used as a pawn in a game of political special interest payback, we must never forget their sacrifices. We must remember those in harm’s way who are under the restrictions of horrific rules of engagement. We must all remember that 10 US Army Soldiers, such as 1LT Michael Behenna, sit in Ft. Leavenworth prison for doing what our Country called them to do."
Michael Behenna was found guilty of UCMJ Article 118, unpremeditated murder and sentenced to 25 years confinement for killing a detainee under his supervision who he was ordered to release.
What war crimes does West not condone?
