It's not clear where congressional candidate Allen West is speaking -- was it at yesterday's protest against the Imam's invocation
in Pompano Beach? UPDATE: If the commenter below is correct, this speech happened last year; but then why was it posted to Youtube today?
Wherever he was, West didn't disappoint his most radical followers. Fast-forward to about 5:10. You'll hear the following:
In 1930 there was a gentleman in Germany who took away private gun ownership. And you know what happened to that population. You must be well-informed and well-armed because this government that we have now is a tyrannical government.
A tyrannical government? And so that means if Allen West should lose his election, then I suppose his supporters will blame it on the tyrant's influence -- and West's supporters will have the obligation to use their weapons against that government?
But now I'm confused, because I thought Allen West was anti-terrorism. He sounds a bit pro-terrorism in this video.
