The Huffington Post reports that Allen West is doing all that he can to stay in the spotlight. During a rally on Sunday he accused President Obama of attempting to enslave the American people. West’s recent antics include but are not limited to; endorsing ‘Joe the Plumber’ for Congress, warning of the US cultural suicide, calling Democrats communists and giving credit to future GOP political leaders for the increase in job numbers in March.
WASHINGTON — Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) can’t seem to stay out of the spotlight, for better or for worse.
During a Sunday rally with constituents in a newly drawn district he wants to represent, West accused President Barack Obama of wanting to enslave the American public.
“He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American,” West said, according to a WPTV report. “He’d rather you be his slave.”
West is running against Martin County Sheriff Bob Crowder in the Republican primary, set for Aug. 14. The WPTV report quotes Crowder saying he is “offended” by the things that come out of West’s mouth.
