West has a Target on Him by Leftists

Go West for US Congress

I posted on the 9th that Rep. Allen West has become a major target by the American Left to make sure he is not elected for the Florida 18th District which is different than the District he is an incumbent in. Gerrymandering caused West to run in FL-18 against an increasingly well funded Democrat Patrick Murphy.

Patrick Murphy’s campaign has a Super PAC began by his father that has embarked on the Obama style of campaigning with lies. The lie is the insinuation that Allen West whoops-up on white women. Check it out:


West called the ad “reprehensible, “saying it”shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation.”

The American Sunrise PAC is responsible for the video.  The group was incidentally founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, who has funneled $250,000 into the PAC.

UPDATE: The group responsible for the West advertisement has disabled all comments and ratings on their video page.  The immense distaste for the ad may have pressured this move.  As Blaze reporter Jason Howerton noted: The video on YouTube currently has more than 12,000 views, with 252 “dislikes” and just 16 “likes.”  The move is ironic since the group responsible for the ad claims to work for “thoughtful”, “more open”, “brighter future” in politics. (UPDATE: PAC Disables Commenting & Rating On Allen West Attack Ad Depicting Him Beating Women; By Benny Johnson; The Blaze, 8/9/12 12:08 pm)

The beat up women ad is from Murphy’s daddy and there is another Leftist Super PAC called Dump West funded by George Soros to use Leftist dirty tricks to undermine West.

Allen West’s wife answered the “reprehensible” ad from lying Leftist with a Facebook post (via Allen West Republic):

Angela & Allen West

Dear Facebook Friends:

First and foremost, I have been married to Allen West for over 23years. We have NEVER had a bout of violence. I am a wife, mother and businesswoman. During my marriage we have together accomplished a great deal, we married in graduate school and progressed through our professions. I have been published and travelled throughout the world. Both of our daughters are talented in their own respects with the eldest taking two beauty titles in the recent past. The Allen West that we (Aubrey, Austen and myself) know, is very intelligent, well educated, speaks several languages, well travelled, and tireless in his quest to make a difference in this world. We, as a family, volunteer, mentor, and give of our time, effort and personal treasure.

§  I know that many of you have seen the advertisement put out by Patrick Murphy‘s campaign or his father or his campaign manager or ………. It really does not matter who put it out from his camp, it was and is offensive. Take a look at the stereotypes:

§  A hint of gleaming gold between a gap toothed smile;

§  A boxing clad Allen West (he does not box) punching out not one but two white women —- one old and one young (both white).

§  Stealing the money from a crying, helpless Black man and his crying helpless son (Really? — That might just be the way that old Tom Murphy would like to see most Black men —- crying and helpless.)

§  Then finally, the money shot which is the most vulgar of all.

So, as you know, Allen was interviewed on Fox News this morning, during which he asked an important question: Where are the Black leaders who have no compunction protesting what they feel is considered “racism”? Well, here is a real gem:

NAACP spokesman Hillary Shelton said he watched the ad several times, specifically looking for the concerns raised by West, and saw nothing.

“Racist is not a term I would utilize to sum up this commercial,” Shelton told The Huffington Post. “It looks like a traditional, political, partisan commercial.”

“The language utilized doesn’t present Allen West as a stereotype of an African American,” Shelton said. “The ad has him looking very well groomed, a serious look on his face and he’s wearing a suit. The only thing superimposed is a boxing glove as a symbolic analysis of his policies being inconsistent with the values of retirees, women and African-American families.


NO WONDER WE HAVE SUCH PROBLEMS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! Does this man, Mr. Shelton, even know what policies Allen West represents? Self reliance, self respect, family, education and direction. Not victimhood, as represented by the crying Black man and his son. No, Mr. Shelton, your type is out of style and you are making the NAACP into an irrelevant body. Your type is not new though, Booker T. Washington wrote:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (p. 118)

No excuses, Mr. Shelton, exist for your ignorant observation. Murphy is what we expected him to be, an opportunist for a weak son; hoping to buy his son job and himself access to greater treasure and business deal in Washington. The casting of the crying Black man and boy are exactly how he views you also. Playing the race card is one of the disgusting tricks of Murphy’s trade, to which he has no excuse. You have no excuse for not seeing this and proclaiming yourself a spokesperson for the NAACP.

I find it incredulous that the Dems Leftists are incapable of trying to campaign on what they believe in. Rather they smear their Conservative opponents to either garner fear or outrage from the voters. That isn’t leadership. That is political thuggery.

Super PAC Attack AD: Depicts Allen West Punching White Women

From shark-tank:

The American Sunrise PAC has launched its first attack ad against Congressman Allen West. The political action committee was founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent Democrat Patrick Murphy.

Thomas Murphy Jr. is the CEO of a Miami-based Coastal Construction Group, and he has already kicked in $250,000 (Source) into the PAC. But now those funds have been employed in the creation of a questionable ad that depicts West as a boxer who smacks around women and takes money away from middle class families.

The ad slyly uses a caricature of West and portrays him as a bully who hits women- more specifically, a white women- while he grabs money away from a “middle class” family that just happens to be a black family.

“West has socked it to Seniors, voting to end Medicare as we know it, he’s whacked women with his votes…” American Sunrise PAC

It’s a typically misleading ad from a liberal SuperPAC against a principled conservative- of course, it’s always women and minorities who are hardest hit by conservatives’ policies-  never mind that it’s West who is the one on the front lines trying to bring an end to our fiscal recklessness and entitlement mentality that Democrats will give their last breath to defend.


Stuart, FL -Today Congressman Allen West released this statement in response to an ad funded by Patrick Murphy's father depicting violence against women and seniors:

I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans.

The ad being run against me by my opponent's family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible.

It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors.

The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment.

This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation.

This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person's character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity."
