RNC Chairman shocks Wolf Blitzer: Allen West is one of the most dynamic new Republican stars in our party

This is pathetic journalism on the part of Wolf Blitzer who refuses to even play West’s comments in full context. He’s trying to get RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to throw Allen West under the bus over his recent ‘Obama wants u to be his slave’ comments but Priebus refuses to play Blitzer’s game and shocks Blitzer when he says that “Allen West is one of the most dynamic new Republican stars in our party”. Wolf nearly freaked out after he heard that because he’s trying to be the civility police and is astonished that Priebus would make such a claim considering West’s recent comments.



But it’s Blitzer who has it wrong and even Priebus, who says he’s not even heard these comments yet, gets that West is talking about economic dependency which would be absolutely clear had Blitzer played West’s comments in their full context. Priebus even tries to explain that to Blitzer but this hard-headed joke for a journalist keeps focusing on the word ‘slave’ and keeps pushing Priebus to disavow West’s comments. Priebus finally tells Blitzer that he’s not going to throw Allen West in the ditch.

Kudos to Priebus for not falling for Blitzer’s deception. Watch below:

Many businessmen are paying upward of 50% in taxes, which means that for 6 months of the year they are a slave to the government. Obama wants higher taxes on “the rich”. This means that he wants more enslavement than the 50% enslavement that businessmen are already enslaved.

Regulatory compliance adds even more costs to running a business (about 15% on average), meaning that the actual figure is about 65%.

The % of Taxes = The % of Enslavement to the Government

Medieval serfs had to pay a 25% tax. People would call serfdom “a form slavery”, yet businessmen would absolutely love to be a medieval serf today, if it meant they only had to pay 25% in taxes.

Preibus defended Allen West in the nice patronizing GOP establishment way. He did not defend West like Andrew Breitbart did. (Remember the “Hating Breitbart” trailer) This is the new standard!!!

Wolfe Blitzer is also a hypocrite…… Alan West is up and comming, I predict a presidential run in his future. I for one would love to see him as Romney VP….I cannot stand the left wing liberal media.

What is it called when someone decides where you will live, what you can eat, pays for everything you have, and essentially makes you 100% dependent? It is called slavery! Under the guise of being caring, the left has made an entire population slaves to the government. Allen West was being truthful but because the language doesn’t sit well with poor Wolf, he wants Reince to throw him under the bus. I wish Reince would’ve done a better job of explaining this.

Congratulations to Priebus …. He seems to be the only GOP’er including Romney who’s ready to throw a punch in an airhead’s direction ….. Today’s pairing of Profs. Walter Williams and Tom Sowell subbing for Rush Limbaugh gave us all a fine trip back into the founding rationale and documents to more than suggest the actions of both Obama and Roberts are counter to originalist analysis and intent…. Their Recommendation? Let the Governors of the several states, articulating the founding documents quoted today ..refuse to comply with both a court and president acting beyond the enabling pale of those documents. BTW these two wise men: patriots and masters of economic and philosophical thought should be drafted by Romney, subject to their conditions, to explain to Americans the very nature of our economic / justice system. It’s clear that Mitt and most of the GOP leadership is incapable of articulating Smith’s… Read more »

OK has a state congressman/senator already pushing for Nullfication of Obamacare and to make it a crime for anyone, federal or local, to enforce it. Below is a link to an article on it at tenthamendmentcenter.com

Allen West has properly identified the Democrat party. “The Democrat Party struggled with their identity for some time after the Reagan revolution. Eventually they allowed self-proclaimed Marxist, Bernie Sanders from Vermont to caucus with them in the House of Representatives. This facilitated increased comfort levels with the Marxist doctrine.” When Hillary Clinton lost the 2008 Presidential primary to Barack Obama, the Clinton influences within the party were minimized- if not obliterated. The Marxist (ie: “Progressives”) assumed control of the Party, and the party today has become “The Hate America party”- a conclusion which is quantified by the Harvard study. The party quickly reigned in the supposed “Blue Dog Democrats”, and ruined their careers by forcing them to choose Marxist (“progressive”) policy over the voters who’d elected them to represent old-style Democrat policies in Washington. The Harvard study did more than warn Democrats not to take their children to Fourth of… Read more »

This was very weak on the Priebus part. Pathetic. “I’m not going to defend?” For God’s sake, man up. Is this Wolf creep trying to insinuate we don’t know what we see with his dear, fake president, Obama? Wolf, he’s not a legitimate President of the United States, no matter how many times you say it. He’s a Kenyan born, Muslim that you projected as an American President. Now shut up! The Democratic Party is communist. Obama is a communist, and I’d venture to guess, you’re a communist. Shut up Blitzer, you moron. We’re going to crush you if the Republican Party doesn’t get some spine, we’ll eventually have to do it ourselves. I’ve had enough of people like Priebus, acting as though Obama and his ilk are just some political adversary. They’re evil, Priebus. They’re the enemy for God’s sake. Stop being so darned pc with them. Say it… Read more »

What drives blitzer and the left crazy is that normally if a member of the Republican House of Reps would say something this provocative they would just call him a racist, call for his resignation, and move on to the next victim….

West trumps any race card played against him and they end up having to discuss the truths he espouses.

Romney should take note….West would make a fantastic cabinet member….Sec of Defense sounds like a good post for the Col.

Wolf needs to take off his metro-sexual panties and and put on his “big boy shorts” and stop being so effeminately offended. After all the bald faced lies he and the rest of the crew on CNN report as “news”, his panties get in a wad over Col. West’s comment! If everyone at CNN (women included) grew just a tiny pair and tried the novel concept of honesty, CNN would not be scraping the bottom of the ratings barrel.

I would back Col. West with huge sums in any type of contest against Obama… with the possible exception of community organizing. Col. West has a streak of integrity that automatically disqualifies him from community organizing. Add Liars’ Poker to the list.

Me thinks the Wolfe doth bleat too much over Allen West’s comments! Wolfe, your sheep’s clothing must not be fitting too well for Americans see through your feigned indignation and incredulosity! Americans see through Obama’s guise, too. Obama is not a servant leader but one intent on ruling over us. A slave is someone who is owned. A slave is totally dependent on the whims, wishes, and allotments of his master. Control, cronyism and pay-to-play are Obama’s operating principles and the rule of law means nothing to him. Obama’s spending, taxing, and regulating schemes are designed to make us a nation of debtors and Big Government’s indentured servants. “The debtor is slave to the lender.” Allen West says it like it is!

I hate it when sanctimonious LSM dick weeds are willfully blind to colorful metaphors. It is worse when a mealy mouthed, weak kneed, RNC chairman doesn’t call them out on it.

As is: “Wolf! I am sure in your high school freshman English class, metaphors were discussed. West was engaged in a colorful metaphor. A slave is totally dependent on his owner for food, shelter, etc. Obama does want dependency rather than individual responsibility. The net effect of dependency is that you come to rely on what the government gives you. That makes it analogous to a slave’s dependency. It isn’t the same thing, but the metaphor works. Don’t you think?”

Hmmm. Slave, meaning:
a person held in servitude as the chattel of another

one that is completely subservient to a dominating influence

Sounds about right to me. Wolf is a putz.

If Wolfie had any guts he would have West on his show and ask him what he meant by that comment. Instead of taking an out of context clip and ambushing Priebus. But he is a coward, and knows that Allen West can back up everything he says with FACTS!

When you make yourself dependent on someone or something else, you enslave yourself to them/it, to a degree. Each and every bit of independence you lose, the closer you come towards being a slave that has no independence at all. Obama wants people dependent, really dependent on government, so that means that he wants people really enslaved. Sure, he’ll deny that he wants you to totally be his slave, but it’s all a matter of degree and of consistency.

If you don’t enslave yourself to anyone or anything, then you will see what it means to truly live as a human being.

I’m proud to say that Priebus is another Wisconsinite, like Paul Ryan, freshman Senator Ron Johnson, and Gov. Scott Walker — and me! Reince Priebus was the WI state GOP Chairman when he zeroed in on Ron Johnson to run for US Senate in 2010, and got behind Scott Walker for Governor.

I even met Priebus at a WI Right to Life gathering, where Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker. This was Nov. 2009, right before Sarah’s book came out.

Reince Priebus has risen through the ranks in the GOP because he’s a fighter. He’s learned not to let media lackeys like Wolf Blitzer intimidate him — and he shows it. He may have a funny name, but maybe he learned how to win an argument because of it. (?)

Blitzer just loves to play ‘gotcha’ games. Well, Wolfie, do you remember this ‘gotcha’ game on Jeapardy? Perhaps, you don’t. Your memory isn’t so good these days. Just to remind everybody how smart you really are, here’s the fine example:
