Tea Party Freshman Republican Congressman Allen West is a racist. Read who he supported and at times stood side with racist Joyce Kaufman, radio host as she ripped into Spanish immigrants. Kaufman once served as west chief of staff.
* In August 2007, when discussing illegal immigrants, she said on her show, "If you commit a crime while you're here, we should hang you and send your body back to where you came from, and your family should pay for it."
* She became infuriated at illegal immigration after she called Comcast and the recording said, "Press 2 for Spanish."
* She said at a rally, with West standing by, "Calling illegal immigrants 'undocumented workers' is like calling a drug dealer a pharmacist without a license." She was furious that children of illegal immigrants were educated in public schools and received health care at emergency rooms. "There are people who want to change your way of life, and some of them may be your gardeners," she said.
The Florida Independent also notes Kaufman has rarely spared Muslims from her harsh words, and, according to the Washington Post's transcript of her show Tuesday, she referred to Democratic leaders such as outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as "garbage":
"Over these months I have been blessed to form very wonderful relationships with the West family," Kaufman said, adding that she had been a supporter of his campaign. "I looked at this family and [told] myself, how do you not fight and put them up on the pedestal when we've got this garbage up on the pedestal now, people like Nancy Pelosi?"
Poor Party Response....
Allen West is a man which has taken the Tea Party at heart and uses words and smart lip remarks to insult those he don't like.
West aggressiveness is just what other threaten Tea Party members like because he's another person the Tea Party thinks will nudge blacks and other minorities to Join the Republican Party against Obama.
Joyce Kaufman, a dedicated racist radio conservative host, and close friend of Allen West, was chosen by West to become his Chief of Staff after winning the Florida election knowing her racist stand against Spanish people.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow in November 11, 2010 featured a video of Kaufman supposedly inciting violence and other websites accuse her of suggesting hanging illegal immigrants.
Because of her racist remarks about the Spanish people, she drew death threats. She later was forced to turn down West's offer.
However, West defended her by saying, ``deep regret that this Congressional office and the people of CD 22 will not have Joyce Kaufman...Joyce is a good friend, and will remain loyal to South Floridians and to me. I will always seek Joyce's counsel for being a good Representative of this Congressional District.''
At West victory speech he stated, "We are going to establish a government that will follow the constitutional principles that our Founding Fathers laid down for us – which means very simply, this is a government by the people and for the people," he vowed.
However, his government and his constitution, does not include immigrant Spanish Americans, Islamic's and poor people.
When one speak of illegal immigrants in a hateful threaten and agreeing way, like Allen West, they are also speaking about their legal Spanish families now living in this country.
Allen West and the Tea Party knows that Immigrants, Islamic's, blacks, whites and other minorities pose a threat to Republicans gaining the White in 2012.
Don't think about running for president Mr West. You will never make it!
