Limerick Ode To Rep. Allen West

This undoubtedly sounds naive, but I keep expecting the GOP to disavow Florida Rep. Allen West’s insane lies. (The guy makes your average Birther look nearly normal.) But so far, it hasn’t happened.

West’s claim that up to 80 U.S. Congressional Democrats are Communists is merely the latest example of West’s nutcase rantings. And my search for evidence that Republicans are repudiating his pernicious nonsense yielded nothing but an angry complaint and denial from Libero Della Piana, a vice-chairman of the Communist Party USA.

Limerick Ode To Rep. Allen West
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Republican Rep. Allen West
Invents scandalous falsehoods with zest.
His mad claims don’t compute,
Yet his party stays mute —
His lies thus implicitly blessed.

    Most of the time I can let the antics of the Right roll off my shoulders. But this really pissed me off. What is this guy, the Negro McCarthy? Everybody who has a memory, or is at least somewhat familiar with recent American history should be condemning this guy!

    West thinks he is a modern day “Patton” or something like that. Maybe he is Joe McCarthy reincarnate in the form of a conservative black who is the lacky for the Republicans who don’t seem to want to censure him or muzzle him either. He has no respect for most Americans and especially African Americans. West and Beck could be poster boys for the American Nazi Party. Sieg heil, Herr Vest! How can you trust a man whose bodyguards are the Florida branch of the “Hell’s Angels”?
