The Blithering Fool Ledger: Allen West Is Lying To You

The Blithering Fool Ledger:

Every day it is something else with these right wing people, and some are more idiotic than others.

Allen West found at

A photo meme came across my newsfeed from a right-leaning friend based on a recent pronouncement by right wing nutjob Allen West.  It's a couple of weeks old, but still relevant.  West disparages Obama as a "charlatan" who has "ordered our military to enlist illegal aliens."

The garbage, found on Allen West's Facebook page, states:

"In other words, this charlatan has allowed those who have disrespected our Constitution and are not citizens to take an oath to support and defend the very document, our rule of law, of which they are in violation. Obama has no constitutional authority to make any laws or rules concerning naturalization as stated in Art I Sect 8 Clause 4. This is an... illegal order and should not be followed by our Military. As well, we are pink-slipping men and women in uniform, Americans, and Obama wants to enlist illegals. We are already outsourcing our national security to Syrian Islamists. This is intolerable and just another reason why we must flip the Senate and begin to reverse Obama's tyranny. Any Democrat supporting this illegal order needs to be voted out!"

people liked this comment on his FB page. 


76,000 people shared his idiocy. 


people commented. 

Except that his pronouncement isn't true. I'm not going to get into what IS true; you can read that at Snopes or at PoliticususaThe article by Justin Baragona at PoliticusUsa is particularly informative.

Unfortunately the forces against intelligence and wisdom and reason in this country are very strong indeed.  The person sharing this is a good friend of mine, someone I respect, someone I worked with for years.  But there he is, sharing stuff from Allen West.

Here's a sample of what we are up against, written by a woman who replied to that lying Facebook post by West:

"I am totally baffled at how he (Obama) continues to disregard not only our constitution but our laws and I hear you speak out, Thankfully and on occasion a couple republicans. The R seem to just sit back too and do not scream loud enough. I am embarrassed at how he disrespects this country with everything he does. I have so much contempt for him It makes me ill. This woman, Nurse and American wants him thrown out on his head."

Interesting.  The woman writing that comment thinks that the Republicans do not "scream loud enough".

Sigh. Allen West is lying to you, you blithering rightie fools. He's probably making money off of you so that he can avoid getting a regular day job to pay his bills. Sigh again.
