Bizarre Wingnut Quote of the Day

From the utterly whacked Rep. Allen West, informing us of what he would have said in Obama’s place if he’d spoken at the UN:

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.”

Uh. Okay.

    So if the IRA attacked an American embassy, we’d nuke Great Britain? Nice to see he’s got a consistent, well-planned foreign policy in mind.

  2. Modusoperandi:

    Oh, come on! He’s just advocating the same thing that a True Leader would do. Just like Reagan in ’83 after the Beruit bombing.

    I agree, is he even aware of the pro freedom, pro Chris Stevens, pro America, protests in Libya?

    It was covered on this very blog along with a huge number of mainstream media outlets.

    Not to mention the Libyan people holding signs like these?

    Or how bigoted far right anti Muslim commentators wrongly made the people trying to help Ambassador Stevens out to be his murders.

    I’m surprised he wasn’t recruited for Gee Dubya’s diplomatic corps. He’d have fit right in with John Bolton.

  5. Marcus Ranum:

    The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.”

    He followed that with “Delenda Carthago.”

  6. Modusoperandi:

    Marcus Ranum “He followed that with ‘Delenda Carthago.’”
    He doesn’t speak foreignese.

  7. timgueguen:

    West sounds like he has the same speech writers as a certain Iranian politician.

  8. tacitus:

    It really chafes wingers like Allen West that America doesn’t indulge in the violent rhetoric and oppressive behavior as the more extreme elements of Islamic society, doesn’t it?

  9. Michael Heath:

    Rep. West seems to be angling for a column at the Washington Post.

  10. Ichthyic:

    The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.”

    He followed that with “Delenda Carthago.”

    Hell, I would have thought he would have followed up with a famous quote from one Inigo Montoya.

  11. Modusoperandi:

    Ichthyic, inconceivable!

    “The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.”

    Holy shit. We just hate those radical Muslims. Apparently way the only way to beat them is be even more extreme.

  13. Sastra:

    “The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.”

    Wtf? West thinks the President of the United States should talk like the villain in a bad science fiction film?

    I would hope he’d end a statement like that with a wild cackle as he flees to his super secret underground president lair to fire up his dreaded Death Ray of Instant Doom with its American Bald Eagle laser light show. Geez Louise…

  14. dan4:

    The quote (well, the second sentence of the quote, anyway) is strange but harmless. I’m used to West’s rantings (“we need to make my opponent afraid to come out of his house,” the “there are 75 to 80 communists in Congress” line) being strange and not harmless at all.

  15. Taz:

    West thinks the President of the United States should talk like the villain in a bad science fiction film?

    The poor guy just wants bald eagles with fricken’ laser beams attached to their heads.

  16. criticaldragon1177:

    Taz,

    Know where I can get some of those bald eagles with lasers beams attached to their heads? Lasers are just cool! :)

    Re Michael Heath @ #9

    I think there is a significant difference between being a whackjob like West and being evil like Thiessen, Rubin, and Krauthammer.
