Patrick Murphy Campaign Launches Attack Ad Against Allen West

Categories: Politics

Producing an attack ad against Rep. Allen West probably isn't the hardest thing to do, considering the amount of controversial material the congressman likes to put out on a regular basis.

Democrat Patrick Murphy has taken advantage of some of that, releasing an online video titled "Allen West's 2011 Year in Review," mostly highlighting the occasions in which West talked crap about Democrats.

It's some of the stuff you probably remember from this year -- Obama supporters are a "threat to the gene pool," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is "the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable" member of the House, and of course, Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would "be very proud" of Democrats.

Attacking West seems to be Murphy's game plan, but with the library of obnoxious statements West's been amassing, we don't blame him.

"This is only a sample of West's extreme and offensive rhetoric this year," Murphy says. "There's plenty more, and worse, a series of votes that most people both in South Florida and throughout the nation, Democrat or Republican, would be bothered by. There's much more to come and we're going to work very hard to educate the public about who Allen West really is and the insidious agenda he's actually supporting."

West hasn't even decided what district he's running in -- at least according to the Florida Division of Elections -- as there have been fears from local Republicans over West's district gaining more Democrats.

Broward Republican Party Vice Chair Colleen Stolberg has been sending out alerts to the group's followers in an effort to "save Congressman West" by demanding West get more favorable treatment in the redistricting process.

Apparently, Republicans really don't like how West's district might look -- saveallenwest.com is dedicated to begging anyone involved to keep his district leaning red.

Anyway, here's the ad from the Murphy campaign:

Sorry folks, but Allen West is pretty much on target with most of his comments.

The American form of government is designed preserve freedoms by finding that delicate balance between tyranny on the left and anarchy on the right.  Maintaining that balance was designed into the Constitution via distribution of power both horizontally (house/senate/judiciary/executive) and vertically (power and rights to states and people unless explicitly given to feds).

Over the last several decades (maybe even the last century) we've crept toward tyranny via growth in government and a legislature that abdicated its responsibilities in various ways.  Today both democratic and Republican parties are big government problems who can't understand that 40 years of borrowing money will come back to haunt you.  The economic theory of Keynes is verifiably broken, and now we have a very deep hole to dig ourselves out of.

Where have all the small-government liberals gone who enjoyed freedom and equal rights? Where have all the small-government conservatives gone who want to preserve the distribution of power so that no group can impose an oppressive totalitarian government on us?

Let the Democrats keep up their propaganda, but let's each of us do our own research and separate fact from opinion.  In the end, history will show that Allen west is simply steering this runaway ship back toward the middle, where freedom is possible.

It's kinda funny that you guys believe West won't be re-elected by a comfortable margin.

I have rooted for every sound byte generated by West. They will be his downfall. The best aspect of his mini rants is that when given the chance to retract, he stands by his word. Keep it up Westy. Looking forward to your next spew. Keep the legend growing. If nothing else, West is consistent.

Vote Patrick Murphy!

Murphy is desperate. But I think this is his "Last Hurrah" before the end of his hopes become apparent to him. West has a 91% approval rating from his constituents. The HIGHEST of anyone in Congress. See:http://telldc.com/poli_profile...

What a double standard when it comes to Allen West! Where was The Anti-Defamation League’s outrage … the liberal outrage … the Patrick Murphy outrage  in January when Rep. Steve Cohen made the exact Joseph Goebbelse comparison in reference to the Republicans.http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/...

Another Murphy ad lacking any real "IMPACT". At least they're not showcasing Murphy's Jazz Hands again

West is such a fan of Ronald Reagan, that his tenure as a Congressman has been referred to as "Batshit goes to Washington".
