Christian Family Coalition: 'Show tolerance and respect. Let Allen West speak!'

News release from Anthony Verdugo of the Christian Family Coalition in Miami:

Wilton Manors Mayor Gary Resnick is right, attacks against Cong. West are "childish"

MIAMI, FL - Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's tireless human rights and social advocacy organization, called on Michael Rajner, legislative director of the Florida Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Democratic Caucus and others, to show some tolerance and respect by supporting U.S. Congressman and decorated war veteran Allen West's right to speak at the Wilton Manors Business Association (WMBA). 

"How ironic that Michael Rajner, a self-proclaimed advocate of tolerance, who claims to support "equal rights" for all, is bullying and threatening the Wilton Manors Business Association (WMBA) with a boycott, if they allow U.S. Congressman Allen West to speak at their meeting. As a decorated war veteran, Cong. West fought for our right to free speech in Iraq. As a U.S. congressman, Mr. West has a duty to inform his constituents of what is happening in Washington. To most fair-minded Americans, Michael Rajner's childish antics only make him look as if he were an intolerant bigot, a closet racist and a hypocrite," states Nathaniel Wilcox, CFC African-American Coordinator.

Didn't West lose his military decorations when he was kicked out of the military, for being insane? why would somebody who disgraced the uniform keep using it as a selling point. The man and his wing nut followers just make no sense at all.

Dearest Mr. Nathaniel Wilcox, Mr West has been using his political position to speak all he wants. West, a veteran who was discharged from the Army for abusing an Iraqi, said “there are certain ways we talk in the military. Well, I was in the Military and we were never taught to speak the way Allen West does. tried to blame his poor etiquette on the military.
You Sir and I use that only because of my Military experience to the rank you held, not the ranking smell you have become, have and are acting unbecoming of a Military Office and yes you are the totally unprofessional as a Congress Person of the United States. Mr. West has disgrace the Uniform while you was in, now you are disgracing the congress. Here are some Examples of Mr. West speaking all he wants:
1.) Allen West Tweet: July 12, 2011: When I see a Obama bumper stickers, it will hurt the gene pool"; his hateful remarks regarding women. and quote them from which source.
2.) what he said to an Iraqi Policeman: “This is it. I’m going to count to five again, and if you don’t give me what I want, I’m going to kill you.” (West said this to an Iraqi prisoner before firing a round off a foot from his head in an effort to get information from him. It got West tossed out of the Army -- and helped make him a Tea Party hero.)
3.) On political compromise: “I hate big-tent. I hate inclusiveness. And I hate outreach.”
4.) “I’m even more commited, even more focused on making sure that this liberal, progressive, socialist agenda, this leftwing vile, vicious, despicable machine that is out there is soundly brought to its knees,”

Now it's time the people of Mr. West District are heard !! Since he seems to abuse his position
