Allen West Fanboy Website Dissolving Due to Lack of Support

Uh, where'd my website go?
Allen West Nation, a website devoted solely to the supposed awesomeness of the congressman, is soon to be no more.

Adam Wilhoit, one of the site's administrators, announced on Thursday that they're trying to figure out what their future is, because continuing as Allen West Nation "is not an option."

Wilhoit says that since West voted for the Budget Control Act, four or five of the site's other administrators have resigned from their posts and estimates that two-thirds of the website's users find West's vote "wrong if not reprehensible."

As for the other one-third that still claims loyalty to West, Wilhoit says it's time to move on.

"We understand unwavering loyalty and the greater cause; however, those individuals also need to understand clearly what their fellow patriots believe to have happened so we can move forward together," he says.

Now they're looking to start a "larger concept," perhaps before a single vote takes a crap on another website devoted to one person.

The responses to dropping the Allen West Nation idea vary: One person responded with 244 words in all capital letters and 13 smiley faces; another person responded with every single "s" in his 350-word post as a dollar sign; as well as plenty of people who are pretty sure Allen West should be the president of the United States.

Newspaper editorials have said there's no way West would lose Tea Party support in 2012, but that's not what Tea Party supporters have been writing on West's Facebook page.

You can find the announcement, as well as all of the eloquent responses, here.

West is a fraud, a phony, a scam artist. He is a war criminal and a corporate shill. Stick a fork in him, this turkey is done.

TV reporter’s advice to GOP candidate West draws heatby George Bennett | May 14th, 2010 A WPTV Channel 5 reporter’s advice to Republican congressional candidate Allen West on his TV appearances has been deemed “inconsistent” with station policy and drawn fire from the campaign of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton. Klein supporters were alarmed recently when they saw a YouTube video of an event in which West introduced WPTV reporter Angela Sachitano and said she “does our media relations.”Sachitano has no formal role with the West campaign, but she and her husband are friends with the candidate, West campaign manager Josh Grodin said. West said in an e-mail that Sachitano “provides me insights into how to improve my media appearance/presence and conduct of interviews.”Sachitano has covered a handful of stories involving Klein and West, including a recent report on the political ramifications of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.When West opened his campaign headquarters in Deerfield Beach last month, a video posted on YouTube showed him introducing a variety of campaign staffers and volunteers, including Sachitano.“Angela Sachitano, who does our media relations, has done such a great job in helping me to develop that presence, so that when I go on MSNBC, you notice I didn’t smile with those folks, because you have to know how to project the right type of presence, so Angela thank you,” West says in the clip.West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, said later that Sachitano’s husband, a former Army captian, was an early volunteer on West’s losing 2008 campaign against Klein.Angela Sachitano wouldn’t comment and referred questions to WPTV News Director Jeff Brogan.Said Brogan: “Through her husband Angela has a personal friendship with Allen West. While we have reason to believe that relationship has negatively impacted her work as a journalist we did find her involvement with this campaign inconsistent with our policy. We’ve taken the appropriate action to address the situation.”Brogan’s statement didn’t elaborate on the “appropriate action.”Klein campaign spokeswoman Sarah Rothschild blasted West.“To have a high profile member of the media personally advising Allen West, while that individual is also simultaneously reporting on the campaign, is beyond what is acceptable. Of course, unethical behavior from Allen West and his campaign is becoming the norm. South Florida residents deserve fair and unbiased coverage of the news and West is trying to undermine that.”

What is the difference between a Democrat and a Bovine Alimentary Canal ?There is none at all,because both are full of crap !Allen West is the ONLY Statesman America has, and unlike the Democrats,HE loves America and her Constitution ..... The best thing for America is to get that ridiculous ,socially inept and inadequate BUM out of the White House , and get Allen West IN !!

Has anyone contacted the OWNER of the site?  NO!  Does Adam Wilhoit own Allen West Nation?  NO!

Before anyone starts spreading lies, you might find out what the truth is!

Adam, if you want support at your new site, you should stop burning bridges!  Go figure.

Adam Wilhoit's original article posted on the front page was to "feel out" all members and then laying out the facts in one final spreadsheet. He did, the facts pointed to STAYING with Allen West Nation and not changing anything. Alas, leaving the remainder of the members who spoke up without a choice. Kinda like Congress and the Senate. Adam Wilhoit and the MAJORITY is forming a NEW website with better things to come Allen West Republic.COMING in a BIG WAY. This "story" above has distorted the facts greatly and the writer should have contacted Adam Wilhoit personally as he is a resident of CD22 and is listed in the phone book. The spin put on this is shameful but the Republic is coming to stand behind the Congressman no matter what spin you put on it. You need to reprint this with FACTS next time and not assumptions as unless you were a member you had no idea what was going on. Thank You.

Hendley is a man without a concept. The daily rooting for the Tea Party to dump west makes no sense; you don't hate West, you hate anyone who disagrees with your twisted view of the world. You hate West more because you know he's going to get 60% of the vote in 2012. He's simply unbeatable.

You have to be a little crazy to idolize Allen West, so how crazy do you have to be to think he's not crazy enough?

In the end it appears that the vast majority of members support West and his vote.  Oddly enough it was primarily some of the site admins who were unwilling to search for the strategy in West's decision, which was to stay in engaged in the fight.  We have regrouped, refocused, and will be much stronger as a result of overcoming this obstacle in our fight against tyranny in this great country.

Coming soon: ALLEN WEST REPUBLIC.   We are here to stay, with West as our standard-bearer.  AllenWestRepublic.com will host a community for all STEADFAST and LOYAL  conservatives to debate both sides of the issues and provide elected officials as well as mainstream Americans with well researched advice and support.  Please stay tuned and join us in our quest to restore Constitutional freedoms in America!

So why don't you people at NT do likewise and stop printing "news" stories about this cave man? What's the point, anyway?

Hendley is following a storyline. A very goodone and he is doing his job. West's antics are unbecoming at any level. His press department has not the knowledge to tell him to zip it, so then, people like Matt are doing us a service by reporting the news. So there! Plus, West sucks!

Haven't ever seen a post or declaration by a TPer that didn't use the words "hate" and "hater". Must be a hoot living in a universe where "hate" seems to be the only descriptive term, for the object of their scorn, in their lexicon. It is not even an argument. Very sad.

and you're going to restore constitutional freedoms by continuing to support those that extend the patriot act. for 10 years conservatives have blindly followed and bolstered the worst stripping of constitutional rights in the nations history and declaring your subservience to your "standard-bearer" is just another pointless page in a decade-long tale of american conservatives being 100% full of SHIT.

Westy has the attributes of a chameleon. He seems to react to public perception and changes colors to suit the situation. He was elected by making broken promises to the lunatic fringe, and is doing his best to extend his Congressional career, beyond his 2 year term, no matter what it takes. Just remember that the West you see today is likely to be something else tomorrow. He seems to be devoid of ideals but wealthy in deceit.

The same reason that the fat chicks make fun of the cheerleaders in the school cafeteria. They have something in common, and it gets them through the day.

My, Kenny, that sounds exactly like your fearless leader, odumbo!  Never know what stand he will take from day to day and definitely can't believe a word coming out of his mouth.  I'll take Westy any day over odumbo!
