Allen West was elected all of five minutes ago and the leftist machine of destruction is in full throttle. The man is not even in Washington yet, but the smears, lies and defamation onslaught has already begun. Staggering.
The funny thing is, how did the Politico cover Alan Grayson when Alan Grayson was Alan Grayson? It is outrageous to compare war hero, patriot and Great American Lt. Colonel Allen West with a demagogue like Grayson. Grayson isn't fit to wipe West's boots.
This illustrates, yet again, how the left destroys America. Gruesome.
Politico: Allen West the “Alan Grayson of the Right” Phil Orenstein, Democracy Project
Politico’s level of discourse has just plunged into to the lunatic fringe with their groundless slurs against Congressman-Elect Allen West. In a primer for the vanquished, Politico reporter Kasie Hunt outlines a few of the GOP freshman “ready-made for cable television” out of the massive incoming Republican class. One of them is Lt. Col. Allen West, and she predicts he will become the “Alan Grayson of the Right.” Ms. Hunt has a lot learn about Lt. Col. West as he takes his place on the national stage.
The longed-for victory of the exemplary American hero, LTC West in Florida’s District 22 Congressional race, and the welcome defeat of the foul mouthed House Democrat Alan Grayson in Florida’s 8th District amounts to a double-header celebration. In a rebuttal to Politico’s thoughtless statement, Warner Todd Huston’s post in Breitbart’s Big Journalism describes the outrageous character of Alan Grayson in contrast with the righteousness of Allen West’s dignified campaign:
West ran a clean campaign in Florida’s 22nd. He avoided over-the-top attacks on his opponent and did not indulge fits of name-calling. This is not to say that he soft-pedaled his opinions on just how wrong the Democrats were as he sought to delineate the policy differences between himself and the left he was battling. But West did campaign with a serious tone and an even-tempered demeanor. He was not an arm waver, he did not indulge flights of fantastic conspiracies, nor did he employ vile attack ads in his race. Pointed rhetoric? Yes. Obscene, wild-eyed, foaming at the mouth attacks? Not at all.
Good riddance to “the unhinged, dyspeptic, entirely uncivil Alan Grayson.” Grayson became well known on the liberal media circuit for his unhinged verbal attacks against Republicans, the Tea Party and America. Talking about Vice President Dick Cheney, on the Chris Matthews show Grayson wondered if he was a vampire that “shot old men in the face” and muttered about “the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking.” On the floor of the House he leveled the charge that Republicans want Americans to “die quickly.” He attacked patriotic citizens who attended the Glen Beck rally as “people who were wearing sheets over their heads 25 years ago.”
As does Grayson, the leftist media makes use of the notorious Rules for Radicals to “Pick the Target, Freeze It, Personalize It and Polarize It.” They have targeted Sara Palin, the Tea Party, the War in Iraq, and other noble American institutions and heroes in order to demonize them. They cannot touch the dignified character of Allen West, spreading their lies and vulgar canards, without a big fight. Kasie Hunt needs to learn about the principles and philosophy of some the incoming members of the freshman GOP class before trying out her little Alinskyite tactics on Allen West.
