Allen West: “Not a chance” I will apologize to Debbie Wasserman Schultz

posted at 6:00 pm on July 21, 2011 by Tina Korbe

I’m beginning to think commenter Terrie, who yesterday said Allen West is the new Chuck Norris, might be onto something.

“No. 1, I have to protect my personal honor, as well as the honor of this nation,” West said today on Fox News. “It comes to a point when I have to stand and I have to defend myself and I can be very direct in my language, but so be it. The folks back in our districts know about these attacks, they know about this history, and enough is enough. … I stand by what I said. She was the one who released it out to the media. I had no intention of that happening.”

Same goes for the people critizing Hillary’s appearance. Do you do the same for men?

Common Sense on July 21, 2011 at 6:46 PM

To be clear, contention with Hillary’s outfits/looks is not due to her being a woman, but due to her being the Secretary of State of the U.S. of A., for crying out loud.

That god awful Madeline Notbright looked professional at all times.

Schadenfreude on July 21, 2011 at 6:56 PM

She won’t primary him. She hates him more than anyone on Earth. She will savor his complete destruction, in the demeaning 2012 way. She will have the last laugh.

Schadenfreude on July 21, 2011 at 6:54 PM

Agreed. And not to mention that she would destroy her standing with more than half of the Dems if she primaried him. Given how much she must dislike the guy it’s hard to imagine that she would have played the good sport for this long if she didn’t have a future presidential bid in mind.

Wasserman Schultz was not professional, showed no class or integrity, was vindictive, etc, etc, etc.

Any real employer would fire her on the spot for what she said.

As to Rep West’s internal email they should find out who released it and reprimand that person as well, though in the real world they too should be fired.

I don’t think that turning the other cheek when you’re personally insulted quite qualifies as “appeasement.” Would anyone really have doubted that West had the spine for a fight if he responded in a less inflammatory way or didn’t respond at all?

West was promoted to CPT in 1987 and attended the Field Artillery Officer Advanced Course. From 1988-1991, Allen West commanded Bravo Battery, 6th Field Artillery. General Staff College at Ft Leavenworth and graduated in the Class of 1997. After attending General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth West became the Operations Officer of the 18th Field Artillery Brigade (Airborne) at Ft Bragg North Carolina in 1997.

Having Bette Midler attack Allen West is a sure sign he’s about to get PALINIZED.

He is the ultimate threat to the DEMS. They must have been reading the posts here. You know the PALIN/WEST 2012 posts?

Imagine the narrative the Dems couldn’t fight.

You could have Palin (HISTORIC FIRST FEMALE to head a major party ticket) and then if you could have West (HISTORIC FIRST REAL 100% AFRICAN AMERICAN VP nominee) you could cut maybe 10-15% of the black vote away from OJesus.

The DOTUS doesn’t get re-elected if he loses ANY of the Minority vote in 2012.

THIS Palin/West ticket could offer those “white guilt” Independents a chance to abandon the “historic” first black (1/2 black) President and give them more “History” to vote if they vote for the GOP.

and the Dems are about to freak all over West.


Get ready Colonel. Welcome to SarahLand.

But he’s black and a conservative…a total anomaly and a departure from the plantation…so there must be a way to destroy him…without looking racist cause that would be bad right for the Oh so tolerant left, right?

come on.

They, the tolerant left, hate the man cause he’s conservative. Think of some of the things ( not hard to think back ) of some of the most hateful, racist shwat coming out of the mouths of the jacksons and sharptons as well as the Alan Grayson’s, the Weiner and MSNBC’s talking quacks.

The guy doesn’t fit the preconceived mold, that’s all. And sexist? If she can’t take the heat…tough shwat.
WE should excuse her venom cause she’s a woman while they call Palin and Bachman c**ts and t**ts or sluts?

..bravo to the many, many here who back West. When the first post on this incident appeared there were those nutless souls who mumbled things like, “he shoulda kept quiet; he fell into her trap..”, etc.

Glad to see a majority of HA readers have a set of stones.

Now, if you would only refer to him/address him as Lieutenant Colonel, or LTC, or LTCol instead of Colonel that would be great.

From my past experience, I’d say Col West was being quite reserved and gentlemanly in his comments. Knowing he is FA, his comments to that free-loading winch were quite respectable. She deserved a lot more and I’m sure Col West was being quite reserved.

Ok, so he’s an Army crybaby who abused a prisoner and was forced out of the military.

DWS did not personally attack him. She didn’t call him names or disparage his character although he had ample justification to do so based on the episode that ended his military career. He could have rebutted her on the issues but he chose to slag her instead. And West has the nerve to talk about honor?

She obviously frightened and panicked him. No man who is confident in his position and secure in his masculinity lashes out with such bitterness and anger against a woman who poses him no threat.

One thing is clear, Allen West fears Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
DWS does not fear Allen West.

I really like your name chumpThreads; that is a hood expression for a brother who wears Rodney Dangerfield clothes. *snip*

Yeah, jarhead, I know what it means.

When I got out of college many years ago, I didn’t have much money so I wore only the finest suits Goodwill had to offer. My late uncle used to subject me to good natured teasing. He’d always ask, “What you doin’ wearing them chump threads?”

One more thing, tiny gnat, what Mr. West did for his team is something that would have filled your diapers with a mustard-like substance. I’d rather have him on my side than 1000 of you. Scroom the prisoner. He is the one who’ll put your head on a block, soon enough.

Did not know that. I spent a lot of time at Fort Sill in the 80s. Was 13B. Went on base there a few months ago for the first time in 20+ years. Lot of things have changed. The howitzers I was on back then are in the museum now.

BruthaMan on July 21, 2011 at 10:55 PM

Huh…I was a 13E. Haven’t been there since the ’80s either. You talking about 8″ howitzers? Guess they’re not using the M102s on active duty anymore, either.

Anyway, it’s not very often we see a Red Leg in Congress.

One thing is clear, Allen West fears Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

chumpThreads on July 22, 2011 at 12:15 AM

Most people do.

No man who is confident in his position and secure in his masculinity lashes out with such bitterness and anger against a woman who poses him no threat.

chumpThreads on July 22, 2011 at 12:15 AM

You’re clearly female.

And you’re one of those females who believes it’s perfectly fine to attack and impugn, and the man should just take it.

I think they call you folks… shrews.

I can bet that if she had been a republican and he a black democrat, the media wouldn’t have been pursuing him for an apology. That’s how much the democrats and their media flunkies have distorted things. Congressman West is correct! Democrats despise any minority person that is strong, independent, conservative, well-spoken as Cong. West is – they are their worst enemies. The democrats prefer angry, ignorant, poor, and voting democrat minorities. This woman is a foot-in-mouth, racist shrew. There, I said it! Thank me!

Allen West for President.

Awesome!!
West/West 2012

Stand your ground, Colonel.

What I want to know is why his GOP colleagues aren’t speaking up in his defense. GOP is the party of wuss.

petefrt on July 22, 2011 at 9:38 AM

No feud here, amateur Corby.

West is right.

Period.

Feud ended.

Chuck Norris what?

Could you expand on that point?

Amateur hour continues.

This piece not up to hotair standards.

Or maybe they are just lower lately.

Sherman1864 on July 22, 2011 at 9:46 AM

Your personal honor is worthless when you get baited into bearing your teeth and escalating what was a perfectly normal calling out. You went apesh*t, and you know it, hence the damage control emails. Col. West, good luck being anything but a hotheaded congressman from some poor Florida district.

ernesto on July 22, 2011 at 10:34 AM

It is about time people stood up to these despicable Democrats and called the what they are.

Only two possible explanations for Debbie:

1) Sold her soul to Satan
2) Gone dingbat

3)

pain train on July 22, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Allen West for President.

jaboba on July 22, 2011 at 8:49 AM

Amen to that. He is a man’s-man, someone who walks the walk, not just talks the talks (can you say “barack”?).

Of course, I can’t vote for him because I did not vote for barack, so I am obviously a racist. NOT!

DuctTapeMyBrain on July 22, 2011 at 10:54 AM

More legislators like this, please.

Go West, young man!

hawksruleva on July 22, 2011 at 11:07 AM

Keep ‘er up, Allen. But keep a safe distance. Soon her hair will self-ignite.

petefrt on July 22, 2011 at 11:15 AM

Considering he didn’t use any of the four-letter words that best apply to Schulz, or dwell on her obvious intellectual deficiencies, I’d say West’s response was actually somewhat restrained.
