Allen West goes birther, calls out ‘girly men’, ‘suck butt fool’ **UPDATED with Video**

Opponents of tea party congressional candidate Allen West have dug up the transcript of a speech he gave at Act! For America back in March. In it, West holds forth on everything from his apparent birtherism to exactly who in the world is a “suck butt fool.” The highlights:
 
1. West on the one thing he would ask President Barack Obama:

“You know, I would ask him one simple question. What passport did you use to go to Pakistan in 1981?  That tells me everything about him.”

Watch:

2. On his beef with “co-exist” bumper stickers and the people who have them:

“Because as I was driving up here today, I saw that bumper sticker that absolutely incenses me. It’s not the Obama bumper sticker. But it’s the bumper sticker that says, “Co-exist.” And it has all the little religious symbols on it. And the reason why I get upset, and every time I see one of those bumper stickers, I look at the person inside that is driving. Because that person represents something that would give away our country. Would give away who we are, our rights and freedoms and liberties because they are afraid to stand up and confront that which is the antithesis, anathema of who we are. The liberties that we want to enjoy.

Watch:

3. On the leaders he thinks are “girly men” who spend too much time reading “memos from feminists”:

“If we would just have leaders who could just find an ounce of courage within themselves and stop being these chicken men and women, girly men, the American people will rally to them. They are looking for that. You know, what happened to our country? Why did we start reading memos from the feminists? And I got to tell you guys, you got to man up, you absolutely got to man up. I don’t want to live in a country where the women are doing the fighting for me. I am part Spartan. And I believe that men should be out there hooking and jabbing.”

Watch:

4.On how real American statesmen should deal with the president of Iran:

“We don’t have anyone in our leadership in this country that will say to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, you’re a suck butt fool.”

5. On the actually quite relevant question of whether he “can be violent:

“I have a little video that has about 2.1 million hits, and there was a word that I said in that video and the word was bayonets. And a lot of people think that I am violent because I say that word, and I can be violent if you pressure me, if you threaten me, my country and my family.”

Full transcript:

You know when you come up here you always have something in the back of your mind you want to talk about. But then something happened and it changes everything you want to say. You know the last time I was here I talked about knowing your enemy, to know yourself and to know your battlefield and in countless amounts of battles you will always be victorious. Last time I was here I talked the enemy, the history of Islam, that which we face so that everyone can really understand. So I don’t think we really need to go back and talk about Muhammad or talk about the history of Muhammad. I think the most important thing for me to talk about is us, what we stand for and what we believe in.
Because as I was driving up here today, I saw that bumper sticker that absolutely incenses me. It’s not the Obama bumper sticker. But it’s the bumper sticker that says, “Co-exist.” And it has all the little religious symbols on it. And the reason why I get upset, and every time I see one of those bumper stickers, I look at the person inside that is driving. Because that person represents something that would give away our country. Would give away who we are, our rights and freedoms and liberties because they are afraid to stand up and confront that which is the antithesis, anathema of who we are. The liberties that we want to enjoy. And the thing I want to share with you tonight is a failure of leadership.

Because as Joyce talked about today, and I am going to be honest because I am just a dumb old paratrooper from Georgia, how the hell is it that a person who will refuse to stand in front of his own constituents that you could entrust to go to Washington D.C. and represent you? That you could entrust to face this enemy and say, I will not allow that to happen in my country. That you could entrust this person (Congressman Klein) to be on the same exact anti-Semitic task force as a Muslim congressman (Keith Ellison) that stood and took an oath upon the Koran, that went to the Hague and stood there and listened to a cleric talk about how Islam will rule the world and destroy Western civilization. How can you allow that to happen?
How can we have gotten so devoid of leadership in this country that after what happened at Ford Hood, Texas, the chief of staff of the United States of the United States could go on the show with George Stephanopoulos and say, he was more so concerned about diversity being a casualty then the fact that he had lost 13 soldiers, and 14 when you consider the fact that one of those soldiers was pregnant. How can we have leadership that will turn to young men and women in a combat zone and tell them that you can’t do anything until the enemy shoots at you. We can’t have night operations, we have to let the enemy know we are coming. You know, I was getting a backlog of emails from marines who were there during that operation in Marsha, the enemy when they were pressured would lay down their weapon and come out and taunt our soldiers and then walk away and fight again another day. And because of the rules of engagement that our leadership has placed upon soldiers, they are going to have to fight those individuals again. How did we become so lost from that great speech that General Patton gave before he took the army across Europe to the point that right now we have a 2 star United States General that is prosecuting three Navy Seals because they punched a guy in the stomach. How can we survive when we have leadership that says that the Constitutional rights that are guaranteed to each and every illegal enemy combatant, a person that tried to kill Americans in an airplane or a person that tried to plan the 9/11 attacks?

See, now matter what the enemy does, we have got to have people who can stand up and confront this enemy and say what it is. Now I don’t know if we got some Ron Klein supporters here that are trying to tape me or if we have some people that are going to try and bring something against me later on, if so, please come up to the front. Because I want you to clearly hear what I have to say. I am not afraid to say that If we do not have leadership that understands that we already have a 5th column that is already infiltrating into our colleges, into our universities, into our high schools, into our religious aspect, our cultural aspect, our financial, our political systems in this country. And that enemy represents something called Islam and Islam is a totalitarian theocratic political ideology, it is not a religion. It has not been a religion since 622 AD, and we need to have individuals that stand up and say that.

I was sitting on a panel in New York back on the 13th of January and on that panel the retired chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, General Myers, and a young former Marine who is a blogger now came up and asked a simple question, basically he asked who are we fighting against. And General Myers gave some very weak answer about hopefully rational voices will prevail. How can we have people like that call themselves leaders of this country? And it is funny, with that simple response that I gave, was captured on You Tube and is now being translated in 7 different languages, all because people are looking for capable leaders and courageous individuals that will stand up and protect the American people from this very vile and very vicious enemy that we have allowed to come in this country because we ride around with bumper stickers that say co-exist.

We have people who will turn around at me and say I’m an Islamophobe, I’m a xenophobe, but let me tell you something. There are three of my former Afghan interpreters that have green cards, that are living in the United States of America right now because they came to me and said they wanted to one day live in this great country. One thing I said to them, here is a copy of the United States Constitution. You go and study this Constitution, you go and understand this Constitution, and when you tell me that you believe in the precepts and the concepts that are there and that you understand that it supersedes this thing that you have come to call your religion, and that you will have an oath to defend this Constitution, then I will write a letter of recommendation for you to be a fellow American. And they did. And one of them brought his family. They live in Buffalo New York. So I reject being called an Islamphobe, I reject being called a xenophobe, because I do want to coexist, but I want to coexist being proud of who
I am as an American, being proud of what our laws our culture our tradition. As I said before, I will not be subject to anything but the United States Constitution.

How can we have leaders in the United States of America, in our churches, that won’t stand up and tell the people that there is a religion out there that is telling us that we don’t even have a [inaudible]. That will turn around and say that Abraham was a profit of Islam, Moses was a profit of Islam, Jesus was never crucified, it was a stump Jesus. You know, he got taken down and Allah did some things and Jesus was a profit of Islam. They are telling us that right to our faces, and we don’t even have religious leaders, except for my dear friend Reverend O’Neal Dozier. We have got to make our religious leaders stand and stop selling us to this enemy. They are treating us like sheep to the slaughter because they want to tell us that it is OK, that there are good Muslims out there. And I believe that. But the bottom line is that they are not going to stand up until they see us show leadership, until they see us stand up and say that we are not going to be subject to this radicalization. Until we believe that this is a Judeo-Christian country.
How is it that we got to the point that we have a President that will go stand in front of the Turkish national assembly, go and say he does not live in a Judeo-Christian nation, making us slaves to them. How is it stand in front of a University in Cairo and that we have a President now who is going to stand up and say he is going to go into development entrepreneurship in the Muslim world? I don’t want sharia finance to be tied up with the United States of America and our financial systems.

2010 election cycle is the most critical election cycle for the next 40 maybe 50 years in the United States of America. If we continue on and Nancy Pelosi has the gavel in her hand, if we continue on, and even if Harry Reid loses, there is still a Chuck Schumer to step up, or a Dick Durbin steps up. The United States of America is on a road to perdition, because we do not have leaders, we have sheep trying to lead lions. See when Attorney General Eric Holder stood up and said America is a nation of cowards, he had it totally wrong. America is a nation of brave men and women being led by cowards. Ron Klein, who will not have the courage to spend one hour to stand in front of his constituents. How can we allow someone like that to be a representative for us? Can you imagine Ron Klein going over and representing us in Iran? Syria?  Afghanistan? Egypt? Yemen? Russia? Venezuela? So why do we allow them to exist?”

This is the challenge. The challenge is in 2008, congressional approval ratings were 21%. The re-election rate for incumbents in 2008, 93%. What do you believe in? What are you going to do in 8 short months from now? It is not just about me, because I said something at a Republican Jewish Coalition, if I fall, what will you do? It is not about me. It is about each and every one of you finding the capacity to lead within yourself, to understand what this country means to you. If West falls, someone else has to stand up and take this place. That is the whole purpose of America, that is how this country was established.

That is why we must understand who we are on this 21st Century battlefield. There is an enemy that is confronting us, an enemy that is battling us, and they are winning. We have to understand that. That they are winning. But it is not over. When the Broward County Commission allows CAIR to have their fundraising dinner in the Convention Center, they’re winning. When we want to give constitutional rights to illegal enemy combatants, they’re winning. When we don’t understand and we write an after-action report for the Fort Hood tragedy that does not mention terrorist, that does not mention Jihadist, does not mention Islam, they’re winning. When Fox News, 25% of it is controlled by a Saudi prince, they’re winning. When we are going around and we have oil and natural gas reserves off the coast of Florida, in North Dakota, all across Colorado, in the Anwar in Alaska, but yet we continue to send money to Saudi Arabia, they are winning. When they can get on television and say that 9/11 was a hoax, that it never happened, and we don’t have anyone in our leadership in this country that will say to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, you’re a suck butt fool, they’re winning. When you have people that are selling bumper stickers saying coexist, they’re winning. When they are building mosques all across the United States of America, yet there is not one single church or synagogue that no infidel can go to in the city of Mecca, they’re winning.
Now is the time for us to understand who we are. For us to decide that we want to have the right type of leaders up there in Washington D.C. That we want to have the right type of leaders in our United States military, because I have to tell you, I am absolutely appalled that we don’t have generals resigning in mass, that they’re political careers are more important than the liberty and the safety and the protection of their soldiers. And I got to tell you something, when I get up to Washington D.C., I am getting on the House Armed Services Committee and there is going to be a whole bunch of rascals sitting in front of me and they are going to explain the rules of engagement, they are going to explain to me why Lieutenant Michael Behenna is sitting in Fort Leavenworth jail for 15 years for shooting an Al Qaeda terrorist.
I need you to leave here focused, I need to leave here committed, I need you to leave here being a part of a regimen of American citizens that will never grow tired, never grow weary, that will continue to stand upon the principles upon which this country was reestablished. You know I have a little video that has about 2.1 million hits, and there was a word that I said in that video and the word was bayonets. And a lot of people think that I am violent because I say that word, and I can be violent if you pressure me, if you threaten me, my country and my family. But bayonets goes back to the 2nd day of Gettysburg, in a place called Little Round Top, when an ordinary American, a professor of rhetoric by the name of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain stood in command of the 20th Maine regiment. And on that day he was told that he was holding the far flank of the Army of the Potomac. You cannot surrender this ground. For if you surrender this ground, the entire Army of the Potomac will be captured and we will lose the battle of
Gettysburg and the Army of Northern Virginia will continue to march north to Washington D.C. Col. Chamberlain answered the call of this great nation and he found himself as a leader on that day. The confederates came after him, time and time again on that hot July day. Casualties mounted, they ran out of water, they ran out of ammunition. And the men turned to Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and asked him what should we do sir, because they are coming again. And Col. Chamberlain said one word, that had never been said in the Union army, that changed the battle of Little Round Top, changed the Battle of Gettysburg, changed the future of the United States of America. Because the Union was able to finally defeat the Army of Northern Virginia. He said, bayonets. No matter how dire it seems, you must resolve yourself to fix your bayonet an charge into this enemy, It is not over no matter how many wins they have to this point, no matter how many times they charge up that hill you stand your ground, because you are right. You stand your ground because Chamberlain did,you stand your ground because the minuteman at Lexington and Concord did.

Question: How do we move forward as Jews [indiscernible]?

West: Leadership is a bipartisan issue. Leadership is not Democrat and Republican, there is a failure of leadership of this country. George Bush got snookered into going into some mosque, taking his shoes off, and then saying that Islam was a religion of peace. So how can you say that and then go into combat operations, it does not make sense. So you’ve got to go out there and evaluate candidates, you got to ask them the tough question. You know, we are not asking people the tough questions, we really are not. We are not holding people’s feet to the fire like we should be. You know, Plato, some of you may have heard me say this before, But Plato said those who refuse to engage on politics will be governed by their inferiors, he said that in 400 BC, and that is where we are in the United States of America right now, because we are not holding them accountable, we are not asking them the tough questions. They are starting to believe that you are going to and look what they are doing, they are quitting. So you have got to first of all get the people with the right type of mindset up there that are not afraid. The reality of your enemy must become your own. And that is the main thing that we are confronted with right now. When people are confronted with enemies, and I had a great enemy the first week I was in Israel with Haaretz, a newspaper, a liberal left newspaper. And I sat down and I was talking to the young lady who was talking to me and we got into this whole thing about maybe we should just cede the land and give it to them, and I said, if every day a person wakes up and tells you I want to kill you, and this goes on for quite some time, what is your response. And she says, well I’d probably sit down with them and ask them what is upsetting them. And I responded by her and saying, it’s your existence that upsets them and that is what you got to realize. The other thing that you have to realize, when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. We are a very tolerant people in the United States of America but it is time to feel some love coming back, and until I start to feel some love coming back, yes I will stand against this thing. Because I am not going to make my country and my people and my Judeo-Christian heritage subservient to any one else.

Question: How much is gun control an issue?

West: Understand this, the founding fathers were smart, the 2nd amendment makes you keep your 1st amendment. The other thing is, look at what is happening in Iran, when you take people and you turn them into sheeple, that is what happens. And remember Thomas Jefferson says, freedom and liberty is when the government fears the people, tyranny is when the people fear the government. Never forget, mid ‘30s in Germany, what did Hitler suspend? Private gun ownership. So no, we don’t need to have any stamps or whatever, Americans have the right to go out and bear arms, and that is the bottom line to it.

Question: Geert Wilders

West: Geert Wilders is about to be the prime minister of the Netherlands, so I am sure once he becomes prime minister, the case will go away. But what’s interesting about that is, here is a principled man who stood up in a very tolerant country and they said, we have had enough. And guess what, the people rallied to him. See, if we would just have leaders who could just find an ounce of courage within themselves and stop being these chicken men and women, girly men, the American people will rally to them. They are looking for that. You know, what happened to our country. Why did we start reading memos from the feminists? And I got to tell you guys, you got to man up, you absolutely got to man up. I don’t want to live in a country where the women are doing the fighting for me. I am part Spartan. And I believe that men should be out there hooking and jabbing.

Question: Are there Jihad training camps on American soil?

West: Absolutely, there are about 20-25 Islamic compounds as they call them. Two of them in Macon, Ga. And the interesting thing about this, when you look at where they are located, they are very strategic sites. The two that are in Georgia are near an energy plant and Air Force base. The one that is up in New York is near a water supply center, and you know, this is a purposeful thing. And see it comes back to this, if you stand up in my country and you start talking about overthrowing this constitutional republic, that’s not freedom of speech, that’s not freedom of religion, that’s sedition.

Question: Cars only on natural gas and electric battery.

West: Let me tell you what we need to do. We need to have a full spectrum energy program that means the oil, the natural gas, the coal, the nuclear the solar, the wind, every single thing that we can develop in this country. The thing is this, I have a Nissan Titan outside that runs on gasoline, so for right now. It’s very simple. How many people in here have investment portfolios. Do you invest in one thing? You invest in a diversification. And based upon how the market goes you change the diversification percentages. So for right now we need to understand that oil and natural gas have a different percentage. As the technologies improve, we lessen that percentage and we increase the percentage of electric, nuclear, hydrogen, or whatever. But right now, let me tell you what is part of this 21st century battlefield. Energy resources. Energy resourcing is a means by which Western Civilization is being held hostage. We are being held hostage by Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela, Mexico. In Europe, they are being held hostage by Russia. See, that is one of the things that we don’t understand that we don’t have strategic level leadership that realizes that. And let me tell you something, you are talking about jobs, you are talking about a boom to our economy. Florida is down to 12.5% unemployment right now, yet we have all that natural has sitting right out there. Think about all the revenue sharing that would come if we would explore and use all that oil and natural gas. And don’t tell me that I don’t want to drill. It is going to be done. The Chinese are coming. We need to do it. We need to have leadership that is visionary and will challenge the American people. We can make ourselves energy independent and we can break the bats of our enemies.  That’s what we need to do.

Question: Media violates 1st amendment. Outrageously opposed to our positions here. How do we make them more balanced?

West: Let me tell you something, if I want to wait around and wait for the Palm Beach Post or the Sun Sentinel to write stories about me, it’d be a lost cause. But you know what, every one of you has a mouth. Every one of you has a cell phone. Many of you in here have computers. We don’t need them to get our message out. We have Joyce Kaufman here. I don’t want to play fair. I don’t want to go through the media. I want to find every single other outlet that I can use, be it the Internet, the bloggers, the talk radio, I am going to get the message out.

Question: Leadership

West: America has forgotten what leadership is, we thought a teleprompter speech reader was a good leader and it is our fault because we stopped raising leadership from within. There is a ruling class elite that has taken over our country and we have got to take it back.

Question: What would you say to President Obama?

West:  You know, I would ask him one simple question. What passport did you use to go to Pakistan?  That tells me everything about him.

Question: Local level

West: I think you have to start at the local level because you have some of these city commissioners. And it comes back to developing leadership at the local level. And then you have to affect it at the county level and then at the state level. But that’s the place where you can press the belly button Get there every time they have these city council meetings and tell them, we don’t want this. This is something that is threatening to our society and our security. Just do the math. There are 25 Muslims that attend the Islamic center in Pompano Beach. I don’t care about them attending whatever, but their building a mosque, funded by the Saudis, that is now 29 thousand square feet. So explain the math to me. Is this a growth industry? And if it is a growth industry, where are they coming from? And that’s my concern. And the fact that it was placed in a black neighborhood that really breaks my heart. We’ve got a problem in this country and we got to start facing it at the local level. And when I get up to Washington D.C., I’ll fix that too.”

Question: Term limits

West: The Constitution, every 2 years you can term limit a guy. The interesting thing, what do you think is the most powerful branch of government? Judiciary was meant to be the weakest that is why they have lifetime appointments. Of course, now we have activist judges, but the founding fathers meant for the judiciary to be the least powerful. What do you think is the most powerful branch? The House of Representatives. Will you let me talk? I mean, I am married, I got two daughters and I still can’t get a word in. But she’s right, it is the House of Representatives, with the powers thy have, the purse strings. That’s why they only got 2 years. Every 2 years you can make a difference in the most powerful branch of government. But it comes back to what I just said, 21% approval rating, 93% reelection rate. What are you going to do in November? So I do believe in term limits, but I also believe in the American people understanding the Constitution and how it was set up and sand stop not being engaged in politics so you can be governed by your inferiors. Now what do I believe in? I think the max that any legislator can get in Washington D.C. is twelve years. In the House, I would max you out at 8 years, 4 terms of 2 years. In the Senate, you get 2 terms of 6 years. Now why I say 12 years total, if you are in the House of Representatives and you go over and say you want to run over in the Senate, that’s fine, but you already got X amount of years against you, so if you go over to the Senate you are probably only going to get one term of 6 years. 12 years and that is it. No pension. You know, I kind of get upset about that. John Edwards, Mel Martinez, 6 years in the Senate, 100 % retirement. 22 years in the Army, I only got 55%. Something ain’t right with that math.

I will always be here, unlike Ron Klein, who ran away.

Question: Gerrymandering

The U.S. census is the basis by which that is done every 10 years, and of course right now the Census has been moved out right now to the White House and there is going to be some squirrely things that happen. I will tell you this, how many people have ever seen Congressional District 23,? It is the most nutty thing. And that is because it is drawn to accommodate a population of black Americans. So I think we do need to get away from this.

Question: Government funding ACORN

West: They shouldn’t. As Joyce just said and reminded me of, at the Ron Klein thing today, you had ACORN and SEIU people that were there, and if you talk to them, a lot of these people are being paid to come out and stand on these street corner and they are being paid with stimulus money.

  2. Flo says:

    It’s hard to make much sense out of this guy; but he does raise one interesting question. Has anyone seen Ron Klein the past 4 years? He might want to get his message out one of these days.

  3. Preston says:

    Poor little Birthers (still in denial about their losses), but our Judges will continue to smack down the crazies .

    To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true (TOUGH WHEN YOU KEEP LOSING CASES), if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories.

    You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it.
    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    I wonder if Orly Taitz, is a mail order bride, just like her law degree? She is perfect reporter material for “Fake News”, where unfounded rumors and innuendo reign supreme, unlike a our US courts of law. The way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked lies, then, and only then, you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called facts that they present. Let’s face it no one will go along with you until you guys win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. A lawyer, dentist, realtor and black belt, WOW I must say a JACK of all trades master of none.

    I heard that Orly Taitz, now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, good luck with that.

    We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew their hate with lies.
