The Secret Service Needs To Have A Talk With Former Rep. Allen West

You don't get to threaten the President this way.
The Secret Service Needs To Have A Talk With Former Rep. Allen West

Allen West does not want the President to take any executive action, no matter how mild, on guns. This comes as no surprise, given West's past history as a crazed wingnut who thinks torture is just AOK.

But he went just a tad too far in his latest blog post, and crossed the line from simply protesting President Obama's executive actions to threatening him if he implements them.

"This is your final year as president of the United States so let us come to an agreement," West wrote. "You leave us alone and we, the American people, will let you stay and finish your term."

We will LET you finish your term. What we is that, Mr. West? Would that be the "we" that consists of former military personnel who would like to bring some kind of a coup on the United States? Are we now in the America of 1963, where the CIA and military had so much resentment built up about the Bay of Pigs that they exercised their ungranted powers of pre-emption?

To reinforce the threat, West continued, "Heed these words of counsel. Our American blood is descended from men and women who rejected tyranny — so shall we honor their memory."

This is the verbal equivalent of a horse's head warning. Coming from a retired military officer and former Representative, it should be taken as a very real physical threat against the President, and a call to arms for every lunatic with a gun out there.

At the end of West's post, he "orders" President Obama to "stand down."

Screw that.

If we don't take a stand on this gun issue and back the President on this all the way down the line, they're just going to get stronger and more determined. Let's have his back on this one, okay?
