Elder Patriot – Lieutenant Colonel West served 22 years in the United States Army and was elected to serve in the United States Congress in 2010. West became famous while he was serving in in a command position in the Middle East and he bypassed an Obama order about proper interrogation techniques.
West was faced with extracting information of an impending terror attack targeting American troops from an enemy combatant he was interrogating.
He saved those soldiers’ lives by getting the detainee to shoot the poop from both ends at the same time. His technique? He put his gun to the terrorist’s temple and pulled the trigger, click.
Except for needing a bath no one was hurt – including no American kids under his command. Obama ordered West held in the brig.
West is a true American old-school patriot. He understands evil and what we must do to combat it.
When West returned from combat he was asked to sit on the board of the National Rifle Association.
It is within that capacity that Lt. Col. West penned an editorial yesterday that called to task CNN’s resident communist Van Jones for his comments equating the NRA with the KKK as well as the corporations cutting ties with the NRA that West considers to be the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.
West points out that is it was Stephen Willeford, an NRA member and trained firearms instructor, who ended the shooting rampage in Sutherland Springs, Texas, armed with an AR-15. However, it was the Broward Sheriff Office who failed to protect young people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The Lt. Col. Also asked:
“So, why the heck is Van Jones referring to an organization that supported blacks to have gun rights to defend themselves during Reconstruction from the KKK, as the KKK? Perhaps Jones forgot it was the Democrat Party that started the KKK to intimidate blacks into not voting and enjoying their newfound freedoms…
“… and the NRA, founded in 1871 to improve marksmanship, which aided them [blacks] in enjoying their Second Amendment rights.
“It was the NRA who supported a black man named Otis McDonald to sue the city of Chicago so he could have a firearm in his home to defend himself.
“And it is the NRA that made me, a son of Atlanta, Georgia, a southern American black man one of its board members.
“The damn NAACP has never asked me to join, and no wonder, it was founded by three white socialists.”
Colonel West saved his most scathing commentary for Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel:
“The folks who let the young people down are the ones who are supposed to serve and protect them. Sheriff Scott Israel showed his butt off at the CNN Townhall…all the while knowing the truth. He’s an incompetent political ideologue, not a qualified law enforcement officer, like the former Broward County Sheriff, my friend Al Lamberti…under whom, this would never have happened.”
