Allen West: Nazi Propagandist Joseph Goebbels Would "Be Very Proud of the Democrat Party"

Allen-West-flag.jpg
Rep. Allen West, the self-proclaimed Harriet Tubman.
The sun rose again this morning, meaning another entry in the expanding catalog of Shit Allen Says.

Let's preface Rep. Allen West's most recent outlandish statement with the disclaimer he gave shortly after his explanation of the Democratic Party:

"Once again, you guys will take whatever I say, and you will spin it to try to demonize me and demagogue me. What I'm talking about is a person that was the minister of propaganda, and I'm talking about propaganda. I'll be prepared to wake up tomorrow and you guys make up some crazy story; whatever."

And here's exactly what he said:

"If Joseph Goebbels was around, he'd be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine. Let's be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit with this and enabling them to get that type of message out."

It's not "spinning," and no one's trying to "demonize" you, Representative West -- take responsibility for your epiphanies.

If you'd like "some crazy story" -- typically referred to by the rest of the world as "context" -- read on.

Politico
, The Hill, and the Washington Post each recount the same scenario -- West was responding to a question about a Pew poll, which found that most Americans would like most members of Congress tossed out, and 53 percent said Republicans were "more extreme" than Democrats.

That's when he made his point that Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany Joseph Goebbels would be "very proud" of Democrats.

Well, maybe it was a one-time thing. It wasn't. Click here and fast-forward to the six-minute mark.

West's hopeful Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy managed to get a statement out just hours after the congressman's, uh, remarks.

"These remarks belittle the Holocaust, insult the Jewish community and the millions of American veterans who fought the Nazis in WWII," Murphy says. "Unfortunately, it is only the latest example of how Allen West is simply out of control."

OMG, People need to get a life. Democrats and their supporters spent eight years saying Bush was like Hitler. (Which is totally wrong as Hitler was a leftist.) Yet Allen West dares to make a correct historical comparison and he gets trashed? It appears they are getting the job done, as there are some here who actually think they are speaking the truth.Face it, they are all politicans, they lie. To think the democrats are somehow truthful as they are democrats is absurb.

Arrest Allen West! Use NaSI SARs to charge Allen West and your U.S. Representative and Senators who voted for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA: S.1867/H.R.1540) with "Seditious Conspiracy" under U.S. Code Title 18 Part I Chapter 115 Section 2384. Details here: http://AmerikanReich.com

It's frankly too bad that his Repugnut fellows in the House won't discipline him in any way as far as he's concerned he is untouchable because of his race it's just too bad that something really bad doesn't happen to him.

Congressman, any chance you would consider moving to California and running for office there?  You make our former Republican Congressman Clyde Wright seem like John Adams.

You would think he would just shut his pie hole.  Instead he blames everyone else for what comes out of his mouth.  Well, he IS a war criminal after all.  Most criminals are not that bright.

One very major difference -- Goebbels' primary technique was the repeating of the Big Lie. Democratic politicians and the mainstream media repeat the truth and the facts. Republicans and their corporate owners spread the lies, and their ignorant and religious fanatic followers gobble them up. Mr. West is giving his race a bad name. His party already has one.

The voice of the angry whitey, the extremist, a greater bomb thrower than Newt Gingrich, a shill for the neo-conservatives.

Douchebag extraordinaire.

Vote for Allen West for Fox News contributor, 2012.

Just when I thought West could not flaunt his smarminess to greater heights, he has succeeded in dashing my heightened sense of perception of his abilities. Comparing the Democratic party to a fanatical Fascist ideology is beyond comprehension. That man has gone beyond bat shit crazy and worthy of censure by his peers. Even though I might consider his party to be worthy of that comparison, to do so would be ridiculous. There must be one helluva lightning storm roaring around in his cranium.

BTW, Patrick Murphy, you are doing a bit of pandering to the Jewish community with your comment. Try dealing with the entire body to deal with West's assault, which would carry much more meaning and sincerity. Nazism was much more encompassing than the holocaust memory.

First, he is not untouchable because of his race.  Second, wishing that something bad to happen to him is the next best thing to a threat, and sounds more like something an actual Nazi would say.
