Allen West's Response to Request That He Cut Ties With Anti-Islamic Extremists: "NUTS!"
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent a letter to Rep. Allen West at the beginning of the month with a request -- quit palling around with Islamophobes.
The letter, from CAIR South Florida Executive Director Nezar Hamze, specifically asked West to cut his ties with Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Joe Kaufman, and Joyce Kaufman, among others.
In classic Allen West elegance, he responded to the letter -- under his official congressional letterhead -- with one word: "NUTS!"

Hamze tells the Pulp he thinks West's use of "NUTS!" is likely a reference to the phrase of World War II lore, which translates to "go to hell."
Hamze's official response: "Allen West continues his baseless rhetoric and schoolboy insults."
