Allen West conceded to Patrick Murphy today, ending his reelection bid for his Congressional seat in Florida. While West was only in congress for two years, he made the most of it, spewing vitriolic bile at Democrats any chance he could. Though West lost his race and his seat, his legacy shall live on. Here are ten of his nuttiest quotes since taking office:
1. Communists in the House!
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.
2. Pop Quiz, Allen West: What is the most insidious form of slavery today?
The Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today, and it does not promote economic freedom
3. A friendly exchange between colleagues: Allen West, in an email to Democratic Florida Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up.
4. Congressman West, which historical figure would you compare yourself to?
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.
5. It's not over until you compare your opponent to the Nazis
If Joseph Goebbels was around, he'd be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine.
6. Once more for good measure.
You're looking at a second Holocaust if Israel doesn't know they can trust and depend upon the stars and stripes ... to provide them support.
7. Racism? I'll tell you what's racist! Tanning taxes!
You want to talk about something that's really racist? They have a tanning tax. I'm not tanning.
8. Did you use the word "forward?" Then you are a communist.
We are now $16 trillion in debt. We have 47 million Americans on food stamps. We have close to 9.5 million more Americans in three-and-a-half years on the poverty rolls. That's not turning the corner. But yet, they want to bring out an old Soviet Union, Marxist-Socialist theme for their campaign called "Forward." I have to ask you one simple question. Where is the Soviet Union today?
9. West knows what liberals really think.
We now know what liberal progressives really believe about hardworking Americans… that what hardworking Americans have earned is essentially the government's to selectively take back from you to redistribute to those they deem more deserving.
10. The sex letter. Somehow, the public got a hold of an extremely graphic letter Allen West sent to his wife. Here are some highlights.
Angela, I need to know that you are committed to being my porn star. I do not want hear 'no' or 'we'll see about that.
How is that booty? ... I cannot wait to have the tightness of your butt surround my penis as I slide in. I cannot wait to eat your soft, smooth pussy and play with your pussy ring with my tongue. I cannot wait to have your hot mouth suck my dick and have warm cum fill your mouth and drip down your chin. ...
If you are on your period, then it's butt sex or masturbation time. That is the standard and it is non-negotiable.
I want a nice long blow job ...
Then I will make love to you until I explode (probably 2 min.) but I'll make up for it in round #2. That is when I am getting me so hot, tight Angela butt. Get ready!
Despite Allen West's loss in the election, there is little doubt he has a career in talk radio, stand-up comedy or raving lunatic.
