House Democrats Hold Protest at Allen West’s HQ (VIDEO)

by Javier Manjarres

Earlier today, the congressional campaigns of Ron Klein, Alcee Hastings, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz joined forces together to protest Lt. Colonel Allen West at his Deerfield Beach, Florida headquarters. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz attended the ‘tea party-ish’ protest of West and spoke to the crowd of about 50 Ron Klein supporters.  Allen West has been under fire for his affiliation with the Miami-based biker magazine Wheels on the Road, as West penned occasional op-eds and columns for the publication.  The magazine has been accused of publishing denigrating pictures of women in its pages- however the women depicted in the magazine photographs seem to be willfully participating and engaging the camera.   The same guilt-by-association game could also be played against Congressman Ron Klein, who has received campaign contributions from Marc Bell, the CEO of Penthouse Magazine- a highly provocative magazine that has been accused over the years of also denigrating women.

Wasserman-Schultz pointed out West’s ties with this publication, and has asked for Mr. West to step away from the magazine and accept his mistake. In addition, Wasserman-Schultz also directly accused West of engaging in this type of behavior.

” He thinks it’s OK to objectify and denigrate women.”- Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

 

Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz continued to reiterate Democrat Party talking points, as she resurrected the now infamous ‘Tea Party extremists’ slogan and referred to Allen West as just that, an extremist.  Wasserman-Schultz repeated the primary line of attack  that Democrats across the country have been using to stave off the growing GOP momentum that is looking almost insurmountable at this juncture.  Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz is running for re-election against Republican businesswoman Karen Harrington.  Wasserman-Schultz has yet to debate Harrington, and according to the Karen Harrington Campaign, she has cancelled several debates with Harrington already.

I asked the Congresswoman as to whether she thought that the protest today was any different from usual ‘Tea Party’ protests, and she responded with the following:

“I don’t see any Swastikas or any pictures of the President in blackface or burned in effigy here.”

 

Here are Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz’s full remarks and her Q&A with the media:

This protest against West was not the norm for the Democratic Party, and it came across as a desperate last hour maneuver by Democrats to help save the prized Congressional District 22 seat that Congressman Ron Klein currently holds.  Recent polls show West slightly ahead of Klein in this highly contentious Congressional race.

    Do Democrats think being part of the party of the KKK is a bad thing for them?

  2. Gismo October 22, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    I will be glad when she is out of the Senate. So she can continue her guest appearances on The Dog Whisperer.

    It is incredible that these people think that they are going to win and Ron Klien sending Wasserwoman-shultz to do his dirty work. The only good thing that came of this is how Javier was shooshed via the hand from asking further questions LOL!

    Shark Tank reports: DWS, Klein and Hastings all joined forces…..

    Sounds like a chain gang to me, God willing. Ha!

  5. Derek October 23, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Wow, as If Klein didn’t look impotent enough. Now DWS has to show up and rally against Klein’s opponent. Where was Klein, polishing his collection of shrimp forks?? I wonder how many of the folks there Debbie had to drag up from Miami. Feeble.

    This “lady” seriously makes me gag. I just voted for Karen Harrington.

  7. Ken October 23, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    It will be so fun to watch Debbitch Wusserman Putz (sorry, I write with lisp) leave office.
    Who planned this BS parade for her? Grayson?
    Allen West has chunks of leftist losers, like them, in his stool.

  8. Steven October 23, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    How truly pathetic these “protesters” seem…………….I suppose if you are going to be impotent then you ought to look impotent!!

    Well, it’s a documented fact now, right on video tape… The Dem’s are in full-blown PANIC mode.

    Why do I say that?

    Because the lies they spew about a respected family man and American hero are more outrageous then ever? Negative.

    Because a radically liberal hippy of a woman was sent to fight Klein’s battles for him? No.

    Because for the first time in history it’s gonna start raining men? Nope, certainly not today folks. (even though her hair is really frizzy)

    It’s because (…wait for it…) never before has a Democrat been caught holding an American flag in public! Now THAT is genuinely a panic response! (Honest! You probably missed it as the mind rejected the possibility! Check the tape!)

    It must be the end of the world.

    ;)

    Javier, see how “POODLE HEAD” did not want to take any more of your questions? She knew you were about to make her look stupid! Yes… That’s enough Javier… LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There was a medical test named for the man who developed it called the wasserman test for syphilis.Now every time i see her name i think of a venereal disease.

  12. Valerie Sawyer October 24, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    Ah, The Poodle is once again showing her hypocrisy. She thinks a magazine showing scantily clad women denigrates women, yet she and her fellow Democrats have nary a word to speak against Muslims who routinely stone and whip women who will do something as outrageous as seek a divorce or talk to a man who isn’t related to them. Stinking hypocrites, one and all.

    As a woman, this feminist does NOT speak for me! All they can think about is abortion rights, as if that is the only cause a woman can or should be concerned about. Well, I have news for this feminist and all the Democrats, I am a woman and I care about many different issues at the same time and consider my freedoms and rights to actually extend beyond just abortion to include free speech, the right to bear arms, property rights, the right to equal justice, the right to have my children receive a decent education and not be indoctrinated with socialist propaganda, and the right to make decisions for myself and my children about how to think, what to eat, where and when to practice my religion and how to live our day-to-day lives, all without oversight from some Washington bureaucrat ! I’m so sick and tired of these feminists acting like all a woman in this country can and should care about is abortion! Issues that are important to women in this country go bar beyond the narrow limits of our own bodies and focus on the freedoms and future opportunities of our children and grandchildren, issues that these Democrats are once again on the wrong side of. First it was slavery, then it was segregation, now it’s socialism. The Democrats have an awful history of being on the wrong side of issues and always opposed to freedom!

    Why is the Democrat Party so interested in putting young female biker magazine models out of work? Isn’t there enough unemployment out there?

  15. Candi October 24, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Wasserman-Schultz thinks women are just too ignorant and helpless and she must step in and make sure all the men do not photograph them in anything but the prescribed (male/asexual) clothing and hairstyles that the socialist nanny govt has assigned to them(notice I say them because the rules do not aplly to her, shes special shes elite). All because a magazine had pictures of women OMG who looked like they enjoyed being photographed feeling good about themselves OMG. Wasserman doesnt understand she would not do the same to men about men. Until there is no special rights or priviledges for special demographics/groups there is no such thing as equal rights. Until stupid people who want you to think they are helping those less intelligent/capable than themselves stop helping those [they deem] are less than them, there will never be equal. Women dont need you Wasserman, we have done and are doing quite well without you thank you. Did you protest Jesse Jackson when he had a child out of wedlock while he was married thereby denigrating the position of his wife, a woman? Hpw did you feel about Clinton denigrating Monica?

    Why does she hate black people so much? Is she one of those “typical white people that get scared when they see a black person” like the President said his grandmother was?

  17. Mary in Miami October 25, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    So, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz is campaigning against Allen West? What about campaigning in her own district and debating Karen Harrington?

    In regards to:
    ” He thinks it’s OK to objectify and denigrate women.”- Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
    What spin! Those women willingly posed for that magazine in which he wrote his articles, and I’m sure that if we look into Debbie’s record we could put some “spin” on some of her positions and issue a similar statement.

  18. Mono Ped October 27, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Holy crap that woman is an embarrassment to my state… almost to the level of Alan Grayson! How on Earth can these libtards get away with pulling the race cars when their party is clearly the party of keeping black people on the plantation?
