Allen West Calls Obama's Speech to the U.N. "More Apologies"
President Obama made a speech this morning to the General Assembly at the United Nations in which he condemned the anti-U.S. protests in the Middle East and North Africa in the wake of the attacks in Libya and urged world leaders to rally against extremism.
But Rep. Allen West, with his Communist Radar superpowers always on the alert, heard nothing but apologies from Obama.
For example, when Obama said the following in the speech: "The attacks on the civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America... There should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice."
So! Much! Terrorist! Coddling!
So West took to Facebook to express his outrage with Obama's MOAR APOLOGIES TO MOOSLUMS TOUR:
In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11.
Not calling it a terrorist attack. Sure, he called them "an assault on America." But it's not the same thing! "Terrorist attack" means that extremists murdered Americans. "Assault" means that they had a tickle fight with Americans.
He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all.
Nowhere in the speech does Obama say "terrorist attack." Nowhere in the speech does he say "apology" either. HOWEVER, he mentioned a video that might easily offend religious folks of all kinds -- including American Muslims -- that might be used not only to incite violence but also demonstrations, which is patently ridiculous because using an offense toward your God as an excuse to attack your enemies with violence or with words is OUTRAGEOUS.
When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant.
Intolerant people shall not be tolerated!!
I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) "offensive' to Islam a crime.....NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!
Boom. That. Just. Happened.
My statement to the United Nations would have been, "The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence"
If I were president, I'd bomb the shit out of everything in the Middle East because our national bird is an Angel of Death who will death our enemies to death because DON'T TREAD ON ME 'MURICA! NO APOLOGIES, MOOOSLUMS.
In his speech, the president said, "Understand, America will never retreat from the world. We will bring justice to those who harm our citizens and our friends, and we will stand with our allies." But the mighty American ears of Allen West hear nothing but apologies.
And in that same sentence, Obama also said this: "We are willing to partner with countries around the world to deepen ties of trade and investment, and science and technology, energy and development, all efforts that can spark economic growth for all our people and stabilize democratic change."
Pfft. If Allen West were president, we'd have none of this "deepen ties of trade" talk. It'd be all about a giant bald-eagle-shaped airship dropping bombs all over the Middle East all the time because NOT ON MY WATCH, FELLAS.
