Read the Scathing ‘Angel of Death’ Comment Allen West Says Obama Should Have Delivered
Representative Allen West (R-FL) had some choice words for President Obama’s speech to the United Nations Tuesday, saying that rather than justify the attacks on American outposts throughout the Middle East by mentioning a “silly” YouTube video, Obama should have stood unequivocally firm in defending American values.
West specifically begrudged Obama’s comment that the future “must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” or any other religion.
Here is video of Obama’s explanation:
So what would West have said?
Modeling his opening after the president’s line, West says he would have issued a much sterner warning to those who dare attack us. He wrote on his Facebook page:
My statement to the United Nations would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.” [Emphasis added]
West added in his analysis of the president’s speech:
[Obama] continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant.
West also put the United Nations on notice, saying he knows about “UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) ‘offensive’ to Islam a crime.”
“NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!” he concluded.
