Pencil Pushing Weasel Calls Allen West a “Coward” by Jack Furnari

Today, Patrick Murphy, the underdog in the Democratic primary for Congressional District 22, called incumbent U.S. Rep. Allen West — a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army and a combat veteran, mind you — “a coward.”

Responding to West’s decision to run in a newly drawn district further north, Murphy posted the following statement on his website:

Allen West went from talking tough this weekend and telling progressives to “get the hell out of this country” to abandoning the people who elected him. There is no other way to interpret this: Allen West is a coward. The truth is that the maps are far from set and I will continue to monitor the redistricting process closely.

Forget that Murphy has purposely twisted West’s words and taken them out of context. I’m not even going to bother with those offenses.

It is an absolute outrage that Murphy would dare use such a despicable word to describe a combat veteran and an officer of the U.S. military — any combat veteran and officer, for that matter, regardless of their political views or affiliation.

Murphy likes to talk about being a “green contractor,” whatever that means, describing himself on the campaign trail as an accountant and a numbers guy.

We all know that accounting majors who never served in the military are respected and feared worldwide for their bravery and valor, don’t we? I’m sure al-Qaida is terrified at the prospect of a Rep. Murphy launching a congressional inquiry to find out if there are any goat heads or sheep missing from its caves.

West faced bullets. West fought for his country. Murphy owes him an apology.

  1. Yeah , Well all the fools are showing their hands ..this is just one of the MANY on exhibit today……. AND WHO ARE CARRYING AMERICA TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET…….. AND DON’T GIVE A DAMN…..Maybe he should take the advise West gave to Reid and Pelosi…… Get the Hell GONE…

  2. I think if Mr. Murphy has so much time on his hands . . . maybe he should take the time to get to know how the voters and citizens feel about our Reps. Allen West is a patriotic individual. Concerned for all Americans. He also knows what the residents care about and what they feel in their hearts about their country.
    If only we had many more like Allen West. As for the Adm. I think Allen West is right. The people he did mention . . . they should leave and when they do I hope Barry goes with them. In all my many years I can never remember the chaos that this Adm. has caused in our country. God Bless our country and Allen West . God Bless our troops . Some of us take offense when you talk about our soldiers. Some like myself have our sons serving. (23 yrs) You should not say what you did.

  3. Okay, that’s it! Conservatives are going to have to use flash cards for the progressives who are context challenged… 😕

    I wonder how much military service Mr. Green Contractor has had? Nevertheless, he does owe an American hero named West an apology.
