Let’s hope that when hate-spewing Allen West, a Florida congressman known for his intolerance, comes to the Ocean State for a 1,000-per-person GOP fundraiser on Saturday, he doesn’t threaten to open a Chick-fil-A, like he did on a recent trip to Chicago.
Yep, Rhode Island Republicans cordially invite the Chick-fil-A’s favorite congressman to the Ocean State this weekend to raise money for, among others, self-proclaimed moderate Brendan Doherty (Sorry Brendan, that dog’s not gonna bark anymore).
Since we, most fortunately, don’t have a Chick-fil-A, maybe should host our same sex kiss in at this fundraiser?
West and RI Republicans will be at Capriccio’s from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday and after that it’s off to Providence Prime, a swanky Federal Hill steakhouse.
Here’s the video of West talking up Chick-fil-A.
Of course, once he started getting flack for it, said he was only kidding … but look at this list of other notable West “lowlights” compiled by the RI Democratic Party:
“I believe, for personal security, every American should go out and have to buy a Glock .9-millimeter.”
He wrote the angry unprofessional email to Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz last summer and had an outburst over her in the U.S. House. He said the Democratic National Committee chairwoman is “the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives.”
He said that women who represent Planned Parenthood or who work in groups to prevent violence against women are ‘neutering’ men. (This was at a Women Impacting Nation meeting in Boca Raton, FL):
“….strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do.”
He compared being gay to picking an ice cream flavor:
“No. I like chocolate chip ice cream and I will continue to like chocolate chip ice cream. So there’s no worry about me changing to vanilla.”
“You cannot compare me and my race to a behavior. Sexuality is a behavior. And so yeah, I said I can’t change my color. People can change their sexual behavior. And I’ve seen people do that.”
He said that a good percentage of Democrats are members of the Communist Party:
“I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. … It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
He joked to his wife, when talking about voting for a bill that would allow hospitals to turn away women seeking abortions, even if the abortion would save her life:
“Did you know that I voted to let you die?”
Said Social Security is modern-day slavery because people are “dependent” on it:
“[Obama] does not want you to have self-esteem…He’d rather you be his slave.”
Gays in military will lead to “break down”
“when you take the military and you tell it they must conform to the individual’s behavior, then it’s just a matter of time until you break down the military,” according to the Tampa Tribune.
Says Obama administration too “tolerant” of Muslims who are terrorists:
“We’re showing tolerance, which will lead to cultural suicide”
Says racism is over and people who say it exists are doing it out of desire to “instill fear” or because they have “angst:”
“Institutional racism in the United States of America is gone.”
“… 85-95 percent, we don’t see race any more… and I don’t think we do. I don’t think you see race when you go to football games, I don’t think you see race when you go to entertainment events, movies or what have you. I don’t think that we see race in politics. I think there are people out there are trying to manipulate that word racism so that they can instill a fear and instill a sort of um angst, to get people to believe and stir them up and come out to take a side, which, that really doesn’t exist, yet we have people that want to create these chasms. I call it balkanization…and that’s not really what America is about.”
