Allen West now on Fox news…

AllenWestJupiter-300x206Fox news is know for adding to its ranks old or failed politicians.  The list includes former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, former short lived governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown.  This elite club is now home to one term congressman Allen West.  For me this is just another low for Fox news.  West is best know for his gaffs .  In an email to a congress woman he swore at her and told her she was “not a lady” and that she didn’t deserve his respect because of it.  At a town hall meeting he claimed as fact that 80 house democrats were communists.  He claimed that Obama’s 2012 campaign slogan “Forward” was a Marxists-Soviet theme.  He, ironically, also said that Nazi germany would be proud of Democrats.  He likened himself to Harriet Tubman saying that, “I’m here as the modern day Harriet Tubman to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”   He said that Obama wants to enslave people.  He did a lot in two years.  He made a number of hateful, disrespectful, and fear mongering statements that lessened the already low status of congress.  He will fit in well in Fox news.  He will engage in their homophobic, xenophobic, anti-obama talking points and it will be a ball for everyone involved.
