Guess Who’s Channeling Gen. Anthony McAuliffe

Allen West, who is one of our very favorite Tea Party Congressmen, had a General Anthony McAuliffe moment yesterday, when he gave a pithy one-word response to the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’  request that he stop associating with Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Joe Kaufman, and Joyce Kaufman, and others whom the Hamas-linked group considers to be anti-Islamic extremists (which, entre nous, they are not).

Rep. West’s response evidently baffled Nezar Hamze of CAIR, who said:

“When I first saw that, I wasn’t sure if he was calling me nuts, or he was calling my concerns nuts.”

Rep. West’s response also confused those reporters assigned to write about the incident. Miami’s local CBS station reports:

West has not fully explained his position, but in other letters to CAIR Florida, he has said he is neither anti-Islamic nor anti-Muslim.

Then CBS4 News discovered that during World War II, General Anthony McAuliffe famously wrote a one-word letter to the Germans in response to a surrender ultimatum. The word used: “Nuts!” [emphasis mine]

Discovered? Isn’t that the kind of thing reporters should know about–or at least be willing to find out about before they file a story? Shouldn’t they be up on historical references? Did none of them watch Band of Brothers? Better yet, isn’t this be the kind of thing that should still be taught in schools?

In one fell swoop, Rep. West made the whiners at CAIR look like ill-educated rubes, and proved to the country once again that he is an intelligent and worthy leader.

Dare we say — West for Pres/2016?

One Response to Guess Who’s Channeling Gen. Anthony McAuliffe

  1. Gerry Ashley says:

    All hail Allen West!

    This is as close as we’re going to get to having another person in the White House who cuts through the BS like Ronald Reagan. This is a man (Allen West) who has the guts to stare down his opponents and bitch-slap them with the truth.

    I have heard it said that the reference manuals on his desk do NOT contain the terms “Political Correctness” and “Compromise.” They are simply nowhere to be found when it comes to doing the right thing. West GETS IT. The left doesn’t.

    If the Republicans have an OUNCE of intelligence left in their ego-swelled ranks, they will see that the future of this nation can be trusted to this accomplished military leader.

    And, Lord help us, just WHAT will the left-wing loonies DO if we elect a conservative black President?

    What will slugs like Janeane Garafalo DO when it’s clear we are not racists… “straight up!”

    What WILL Reverend Wrong have to say? Jesse Jackson? Al Not-So-Sharpton?

    The “Right-Wing Racism” smear campaign perpetrated by the left wing nutbags. will have evaporated into thin air, demonstrating once and for all that THEY are the race-baiters. Meanwhile, WE’LL be supporting the man who can turn America around and back on track to greatness once again.

    So you know what THAT means, don’t you? Get ready for character attacks on West. Without a doubt, the goon-squad left-wing labotomites will be out to degrade, denigrate and trivialize West… the sooner the better. The one thing they are too stupid to realize, however: West doesn’t put up with trash talk. He’ll actually stand up for himself and, more important, his beliefs… and OURS.
