Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is known for his brutal honesty and pointed public proclamations. While delivering a Labor Day speech to the Palm Beach County Tea Party earlier this week, these attributes were in full force. West called out so-called "trackers," those individuals employed by Democrats to attend his speeches and to publicize his blunders. Then, he told the audience that he "serves a mighty God" and, as a result, he doesn't fear liberals' ploys to smear him.
During the speech, West, who was sporting a baseball cap, called upon a woman in the audience. BIZ Pac Review claims she was one of the trackers who regularly attends his appearances throughout the district. In the past, West has made it a point to call out these trackers, but in this case, he did so with fervency and fanfare.
In front of an audience of about 200 people, West asked the tracker to come to the front of the crowd. She complied and he proceeded to deliver some harsh blows to his Democratic opponents.
"Come sit right here, because I want you to make sure that you get everything I say, so that when you post it on ThinkProgress, they can make sure that I stay the number one target in this country for liberal progressives," he told the woman after she positioned herself in the front of the venue, camera in hand.
Then, he touted God's protection and said that, as a result of his faith, he is not afraid.
"What they need to understand is that I serve a mighty God," he proclaimed. "My God does not walk in the realm of fear. My God walks in the realm of strength and courage. That’s why I am not afraid of them."
West then went on to praise the tea party. Watch the powerful clip, below:
