Former Congressman and decorated military leader Allen West has written a book called Guardian of the Republic. This book is about his life, political philosophy, and conservativism (or lack thereof) in the black community. Following are 12 of the most provocative quotes from “Guardian of the Republic” on President Obama, faith, abortion, the military, the destruction that Leftism has wrought on the black community and much more.
1. In Obama’s case we’ve enabled affirmative action to find a home in the nation’s highest office.
“I believe the election and reelection of Obama were among the most conspicuous acts of denial in recent years. Voters just stopped paying attention. They accepted consistently bad behavior and rewarded it. They they wonder why they get more bad behavior. Of course many in opposition dare not challenge the behavior because they’re too obsessed with race and political correctness.
In Obama’s case we’ve enabled affirmative action to find a home in the nation’s highest office. There you have it. I said it and I stand by it. America fell for the gimmick candidate, disregarding every fact and warning sign in the rush to have “the first African-American president.” We were told to shut up, and a complicit media became part of the scheme.”
2. As for the next President…
“What type of gimmick will we rush to accept as a leader regardless of qualification, leadership, or principles? The first Hispanic president? The first gay president? The first transgender president? The first Muslim president? (Oh, wait…) How long will we follow destructive cults of personality just to appease the gods of political correctness?”
3. On abortion
“Does anyone else find it hypocritical that progressive socialists promote choice in killing children but reject saving them through educational choice?”
4. And birth control
“The opportunity society tells individuals that their rights, as granted by their Creator, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The dependency society confuses privileges with rights and sells everything as a right: the right to own a home, rights based on sexuality, a right to birth control–that one I can’t really understand. What prevents manufactured women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke or anyone else from walking into CVS or Walgreens and picking up a pack of Trojans for the weekend?”
