Allen West: Occupy Wall Street Protesters Will Be Known as the "Sons of Anarchy"

Categories: Wild, Wild West

According to Rep. Allen West, Occupy protesters.
Occupy Wall Street -- it's like a fictional organized-crime syndicate that rides around on motorcycles, according to Rep. Allen West.

West celebrated the 238th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party on Friday, and of course, couldn't go without insulting someone along the way.

"We remember them today in celebration of our hard fought freedoms and liberties," West said. "In the future we shall look back upon the 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters as the Sons of Anarchy."

Maybe West didn't catch this one, but historians say the British government at the time used to call the Sons of Liberty the "Sons of Violence" or the "Sons of Iniquity."

On the other hand, he might just watch too much cable TV and got excited about Sons of Anarchy's season four finale, which aired the week before.

Or maybe he just needed more attention.

West's spokeswoman also responded to concerns about the congressman's Nazi-propaganda comments last week, telling Broward Politics that West stands by his remarks, and to consider West's comments to be insensitive would be a "perfect example" of propaganda.

West had claimed Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would "be very proud of the Democrat Party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine."

That drew a not-so-pleasant response from several individuals and organizations.

Anyway, we'll be on the lookout for leather vests at the next Occupy meeting.

his knowledge of history or the law is so much, you could fill a cockroach's condom with it, and still have enough room for the roach's penis and the cumshot.

So, OWS didn't align it self with Anonymous?       Anonymous is not for anarchy?

isn't that the analogy?

considering the thousands of acts i have seen occupiers go through with to prove they're not (all) anarchists, you know they're not the same thing as anonymous.

aside from them being fictitious, the sons of anarchy are not anarchists either. they're just a bunch of murderous thugs with a super-kewl name.

If anyone is interested in helping defeat Allen West in 2012, I started a facebook group (but they won't let me post the link here).

If you are on facebook, go to the search bar and search "Allen West Must Go 2012".

divide and conquer. Tea partyers and OWS both want the same thing. The end of corporations corrupting our government.

You do know tea baggers are FUNDED by corporations, right?  You know, the Koch brothers off the top of my head.The day tea baggers want to end corporations and their power over the government is the day I suddenly discover that I am actually an alien.

Yes. Tea Party is a sham for the corporate powers that run the GOP.

I am personally sick and tired of this man representing me by uttering a constant stream of insults towards people he disagrees with. THIS IS NOT LEADERSHIP. This is abuse. And to top it off, he has done nothing in his time in Congress but throw sand in the gears of our country's government. He is NOT working for solution on behalf of his constituents. This is NOT representation!

We the People of Florida's 22nd district deserve a representative who will work on behalf of ALL the people.

Steadfast & Loyal to kicking this guy out of Congress!

Activism... making useless people feel important.  Ethan, we all know you hate Allen West because he is a black Christian.  You are a racist and a bigot.

 Alan West is hated for being a war mongering, bigoted, war criminal.  Has nothing to do with his color or his religion.

I am delighted to hear that Adam, I mean Allen, West has not backed off of his Nazi propaganda  diatribe like comparison to the Democratic Party, lest there be a misunderstanding of his intent. No misunderstanding or misinterpretation.

Sons of Anarchy? Okay. Still trying to figure out if that is an insult, flattery or just the nonsensical blather that spews from his inner thoughts. Dude seriously needs to put a muffler between his brain and voicebox. He does have the Wow factor.

Well it is kind of amusing since the Sons of Anarchy were in the beginning just trying to save Charming from the gangs and drugs.  Course this last season just killed THAT one..but does it count that it was the CIA?

Hate to tell West, but thanks to him and his buddies, that would be the definition of the tea baggers.  OWS is closer to what the actual tea party was about where the tea baggers would be more in line with the royalists.Just goes to show just how dim this criminal really is.Its just too easy though.  Every time he opens his mouth, something idiotic comes out of it.  Its just not amusing making fun of the learning disabled and this is what its become with West.

As we have seen ad infinitum, Col. West's knowledge of U.S. history is about a foot wide and a millimeter deep, and he has no shame in brandishing it for all to see. Perhaps someone will remind him that the Boston tea party was in protest of a too-cozy relationship between a corporation (the East India Company) and a government (George III and his royal entourage). Today's tea party simpletons are stooges of the multinational corporations and their bought and paid for Republican lap dogs like dimwit West. 

The very last thing the founders ever wanted to see was a standing army, which they considered the first tool of tyrants. That is why we have the Second Amendment, so the adult white male property owners -- at a time when there were no police or sheriffs or highway patrol -- could become a local militia in times of crisis. Today's tea party dolts worship the military -- to the tune of $955 billion this year -- and West has spent his adult life on the payroll of the military-industrial complex.

These crackpots don't represent anything remotely close to historical traditions. They're a lynch mob or major, major ignorance. West fits them perfectly.

I have grown sick and tired of being abused by my own member of Congress. This man and his nonstop stream of insults is an embarrassment to America.

Please join the facebook group I started to kick him out of Congress in the 2012 election:
