Allen West joins Fox News

Former U.S. Rep. Allen West, made famous by his comments such as calling 80 Democrats in Congress commies and calling U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz ''not a lady'', will now share his views as a contributor to Fox News.

West will offer political commentary during various daytime and primetime programs.

“Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the FOX News lineup," said Fox news vice president in the announcement released on Business Wire. “Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the FOX News lineup.”

West, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, ousted U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton, in 2010 in their second match-up. But in 2012 he was defeated by Democrat and businessman Patrick Murphy in a newly drawn Broward-Palm Beach district 22.

West will fit right in at FAUX NEWS.
They both have little disregard for the truth, contempt for anyone other than the wealthy elite.

A perfect fit of Fear&Hate.

Even on Fox News, Allen West is so extreme that he will need to be medicated before each show.

Rarely do I find a politician that I can agree with on 90% of all issues. With West it is more like 99.9%. I can not wait until he is in office again. It does not matter what party you support, his honesty is never questioned.
