Allen West Blames the President for SOPA, Deletes It, Then Blames Eric Holder

Rep. Allen Bernard West
Rep. Allen West -- unlike a few of his South Florida congressional counterparts -- opposes the Stop Online Piracy Act and explained that it's because President Obama doesn't know "this is a democracy."

Wait, Obama's not on board with SOPA? Check that; it's Attorney General Eric Holder's fault.

West should know that we typically check up on him to let his constituents know what he's up to.

First, West took to Twitter and Facebook to denounce the president's sending of a letter to Iran.

Second, West got pissy after the State Department announced it was rejecting the proposal for the Keystone XL pipeline and literally congratulated China.

Third, it was apparently Obama's fault that SOPA exists.

If that sounds strange to you, it's because it is -- the Obama administration released a statement saying, in part, "While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet."

That post from West magically went missing from Twitter and Facebook, and now it's Holder's fault!

"I will not be voting for #SOPA- the Stop Online Piracy Act," West says in the revised edition. "Eric Holder does not need any more power over free speech over the internet."

Why it's suddenly Holder's fault is still beyond us.

If a unicorn fell from the sky and fell on the hood of West's Hummer SUV, we'd say the chances of West blaming it on Obama would be pretty high. (If Obama had an alibi, it was probably Holder.)

My mother told me she that Allen West used to make his staffers suck his pole. Ellen Holbrook and her best friend Corrine Desentes had sex with Allen West while his poor wife thought he was working late. In our neighborhood Allen West is considered a big joke which is why he wouldn't run for office in this district.

Allen West can't handle the truth.BahahahahaIn West's mind its always someone else's fault. Comical that the man who preaches individual accountability can never take responsibility for his own mistakes.

But your liberal left leaning ways supports vile untrue statements like "Debbie Wasserman Shultz,  Last week, basically blamed the Tea Party for the horrific shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords." A vice President using "rape" as an acceptable term when describing Republicans, Eric Holder and his gun running ways leading to horrific deaths, but THIS BY ALLEN WEST is an issue? REALLY? Please, we know who owns the media and its NOT the Republican Establishment. GO WEST 2012 I HOPE HE WINS !!!

Alien West is was a disgrace to the uniform and his country, is a Clarence Thomas Uncle Tom to his race, and is Stepen Fetchit for the despicable Koch Brothers and the criminal Karl Rove. Alien West isn't qualified to be dogcatcher. He should be strapped into a drone and flown into Iran, where he can get the kind of treatment he deserves.

Judging from your twitter account, rambling nonsensical statement, and loose grasp of reality I recommend you seek psychiatric help. But don't tell the doctors you worship Allen West unless you like straight jackets.

One does not get drummed out of the military without doing criminal things.  Common sense should apply here.  He was caught doing despicable things to civilians which is why he is a criminal.
