Allen West says Rubio, Jeb should be 'ashamed' for not backing AZ law

During a recent interview on Sirius Satellite Radio, Republican congressional candidate Allen West had strong words about members of his party balking at the new anti-illegal immigration law in Arizona.

U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush have criticized the law, which requires immigrants to carry their papers with them and allows the police to detain suspected illegal immigrants.

West said: "And I just want to put this out here, one of the things that really does concern me is that the national Republican party is not coming out and being supportive of the governor of Arizona and standing with her.  Because if we do not stand for the rule of law, if we do not stand for America as a constitutional republic, if we believe in lawlessness and the breakdown of society, who are we as a party? So we got to be careful about what we are seeing. I mean we have had Marco Rubio down here come out against the governor of Arizona, former Gov. Jeb Bush come out against her. That is absolutely the wrong position and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing that."

Ashamed? That's tough talk from an upstart candidate about two of the most popular Republicans in Florida. West is trying to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Klein of Boca Raton.

Wondering

Allen West's thinking is frightening. He obviously has no common sense at all. He would make a dangerous politician, with little understanding of the Constitution.

WEST is Intolerant of anyone who does not fit his mold. HE IS NOT A TRUE REPRESENTATION of the COSMOPOLITAN COMMUNITY WE HAVE IN SOUTH FLORIDA.
HIS GESTAPO RHETORIC IS CONTAMINATING THE MULTICULTURAL SPIRIT THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA, and THREATENS OUR IMAGE AROUND THE WORLD.
Intolerance toward Muslims

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Seems like the Klein people are out in force this time around.

There's a long list of intolerant stances laid out by the Klein people...

I wonder why they aren't saying West is antisemitic?

The funny thing is Klein is Jewish and he supports Obama 100%. Yet Obama has spent most of his term so far slamming Israel, and making friends with Iran and other antisemitic nations.

One could easily say that West cares more for Israel than the Jewish Klein. Isn't that weird? For such an intolerant guy, West supports Klein's race more than Klein does.

Wow!!!

SABINE

WEST SPEAKS THE TRUTH AND TRULY LOVES HIS COUNTRY AND HAS SERVED IT WELL. FOR THOSE THAT COMMENT ON HIS LEAVING THE MILITARY...........WHY WAS HE BROUGHT BACK AS AN ADVISOR?......HE DID NOT TORTURE AN "IMMOCENT IRAQI" CITIZEN. THERE WAS INFO THAT THERE WAS AN ASSASSINATION PLOT AGAINST WEST AND HIS MEN AND HE WAS TRYING TO GET INFO. AS HE SAID IN HIS TRIAL. "I WOULD GO THROUGH HELL WITH A GASOLINE CAN" FOR MY MEN. WOULD OBAMA DO THE SAME FOR AMERICA?.......NOOOOOO! WEST IS A HERO AND WILL SERVE THIS COUNTRY WELL AS HE DID FOR 22 YEARS.
