Florida’s Character Assassins: The AFL-CIO, those ‘outlaw’ bikers and Allen West
Leathernecks are not Outlaws and buying insurance is not hypocrisy.
Union lackey and former lobbyist Ron Klein [D] and the rest of his left-wing sycophants hate Allen West, the Republican candidate running for Congress in Florida’s 22nd District. He is everything they fear in a candidate from the Right and represents everything they are opposed to.
Allen West is a pro-military, pro-freedom, and he’s a man of principle. He does not believe union bosses should be cutting back-room deals*, and he does not believe America should be driven into bankruptcy as the Democrats are doing. Oh, and one other thing, he happens to be black which, for some reason, matters a lot to the Left (apparently it’s harder to call him a racist).
So, given the morally bereft nature of Democrat Klein and his minions, they have their thongs so tightly wound over Allen West’s candidacy that their tramp stamps are beginning to metathesize and they have nothing left but to make stuff up. However, in so doing so, they not only have attacked Allen West, they’ve also disparaged the invaluable service and reputations of the men and women who protect America’s freedoms.
Now, because many of you may have fallen victim to the Left’s sleight of hand, it’s time you know the truth about the idiot attacks on Allen West.
A couple of weeks ago, the Left stupidly (yes, stupidly) accused Allen West of affiliating with bikers (gasp!). Even worse, the Left went so far as to accuse Allen West of having bikers “who look suspiciously like Outlaws-affiliated bikers” throw a Democratic staffer “bodily” out of one of West’s rallies…and they had the video to prove it!
Allen West’s (FL-22) BFF, a gang called the Outlaws (aka “organized crime”) have been caught on video. Funny how that happens when you’re in someone’s face… publicly. Just ask Joe Miller.
Thanks to my Twitter pal Joy Reid, we have some great reporting about the thuggery that West’s little buds have been up to:
And while the goons were described as “Vietnam veterans,” you can clearly see from their signage that they are the very bikers that West has said “protected” him in the past.
The Florida Democratic party has now pulled the staffer off the West detail … due tosafety concerns. And that’s a good thing. God help that kid if he runs across some Go West dude whose mind has been blown by Glenn Beck…
Here’s the problem, for anyone who is a biker, one glance at the video and you know instantaneously that the bikers the Left is accusing of being the infamous “Outlaws” are not, in fact, outlaws at all (in name or in deed). Rather, they are the big bad Leathernecks! Eeek!
And, yes, they can be intimidating…which is exactly how they should be. More importantly, that is how all Americans (except, of course, the Left) should want them to be. Here’s why:
The Leathernecks are the men (and, more recently, women) who have fought for America’s freedom since 1775. They are Marines…more specifically, they are current and former Marines.
In the biker community, the Leathernecks MC is a well-respected MC (for you Lefty trolls whose only exposure to bikers is reading the Motorcycle Diaries, MC is biker-speak for Motorcycle Club). The following is from the Leatherneck MC’s website:
Just as the United States Marine Corps is a proud and distinct organization that stands apart from other military organizations, so too, is the Leathernecks Motorcycle Club Intl., Inc. a proud and distinct organization of active-duty and former Marines and FMF Corpsmen that stands apart from, yet not against, other motorcycle clubs. Just as the United States Marine Corps supports God, Country and Marine Corps Brotherhood, so too, does the Leathernecks Motorcycle Club support God, Country and Marine Corps Brotherhood. Just as the United States Marine Corps stands ready to defend our country and allies against tyranny, so too, does the Leathernecks Motorcycle Club Intl., Inc. stand ready to defend itself against tyranny of any kind.
The Leathernecks Motorcycle Club Intl., Inc. is not political and claims no territory. We are a family orientated club. We have no need for reputation building. The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor needs no introduction. We fly USMC and CORPSMAN as bottom rockers because we can. We respect all men except the enemies of our country and the enemies of our free way of life. We are not interested in joining or interfering with the affairs of others. We desire only to ride our motorcycles in the company of our brothers as free men in this free land, a land for which we and our brothers have fought “In Every Clime and Place” during the past 234 years. Currently, and always, we have brothers in hostile places around this globe defending our rights to choose as we please. We will never seek to infringe upon the rights of anyone and we expect the same courtesy in return.
