Video: Lt. Col. Allen West on why Radical Islam is the norm and not a perversion

This video isn’t new, but thanks to reader KeninMontana for pointing it out. It appears to be from February of this year so it isn’t that old, but it’s awesome.

To say Radical Islam is redundant – all you need to say is Islam, because it’s inherently radical. But I don’t mean radical in the same way that the founders were radical, or that Jesus was radical. I mean radical as in evil, violent, and oppressive. And Lt. Col. Allen West seems to understand that quite well and gives the best answer I’ve heard in a long time on this very point:

It’s interesting that no one up there could give a coherent answer as to why Islam was a threat, except for West. I’m telling you, get West and Patraeus together on a ticket and I’m all in for 2012.
