Oh my. Rep Allen West loses it when faced with an angry town hall
First, the "big brave military man" only wants questions he's reviewed first. Don't want anything negative, right? Then when someone does ask something he doesn't like, something minor, like medicare being dismantled, he orders police to escort the people who asked the question out, shouting while this is happening that he "WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED".

6. Quote from Rep West in 2010
when he was challenging power, rather than being challenged:

"If we sit complacent and if we don't pay attention to what's going on right now, we will find ourselves once again becoming slaves to a tyrannical government. You cannot stand down. You cannot stop being vigilant. And just as this T-shirt says ... we must tell this government, 'Don't tread on me.' " http://www.tampabay.com/news/military/war/tea-party-fav...

Challenge power, except when it's Tea Party people being challenged. Then get out or shut up.

7. This is so amazing, I hope everyone is watching what is going on! And they


are trying to dismantle public schools all across this great country, and replace them with faith-based charter schools, who will indoctrinate our children and grandchildren.

We need to fight back!

he didn't mean them to apply to himself.

11. scary to see how many people there support West....?
notice West in his military "parade rest" stance as he dictates to the crowd. He is a right wing MF-er all the way. And then the stockholm syndrome response of a good number of the people?

I would have not been surprised to hear a 'Sig Heil' from the audience.

When the masses in this country have been brain washed to this extent.. we are in serious trouble.
