Allen West doubles down, turns commie comment into fundraising pitch

Picture 27

No reason a congressman can't turn a commie comment into capital, eh? From Congressman Allen West:

Dear Fellow Conservative,

You know I am not afraid to speak the truth.

That’s why I’m the number one target of liberals and their friends in the media who are going completely nuts about my comments at a recent Townhall meeting. I need your help to fight back and stand up against the corrupt liberal media as they attempt cover for their left-wing allies.

In response to a question about Marxists in Congress, I called out the Congressional Progressive Caucus for their extreme left-wing positions. I stand by the point of my comments and I need you to stand with me today by making a contribution of $10 or more.

The Progressive Caucus advocates for state control over industries, redistribution of wealth, reduced individual economic freedom, and the destruction of free markets.  Members of this Caucus lavished praise on Fidel Castro following a 2009 visit to Cuba. They have even introduced a constitutional amendment to redistribute wealth. 

You can call them whatever you want, but they point is, they oppose free markets and individual economic freedom, they are determined to empower government to redistribute wealth, and they want to see the nation fundamentally transformed. Their policies are destructive and I will stand up to them regardless of the critics.

We’re in the fight for the heart and soul of our nation. It's a fight we can win, but we must all be involved. Please stand with me by making a contribution today.

Thank you.

Steadfast and loyal,

LTC(R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress
