“It is ironic that we are about to remember 9/11, both in 2001, and in 2012 with Benghazi on the day the Iran nuclear resolution is being considered by Congress,” former Florida congressman Allen B. West said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas. West also called the refugee migration from the middle east “a huge danger.” West, a black American, also called this a “time of division” that is “part of a premeditated plan over the last 6 ½-7 years.” He said the Black Lives Matter movement is part of that plan for division.
Allen West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who now lives in Dallas, Texas, gave Breitbart Texas an exclusive interview the afternoon before 9/11.
West said that the refugees that are flooding Europe and are expected in the United States are the “Trojan horse” like that of the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and win the war. West noted that ISIS said they would create a crisis in Europe and they have. He called the migration a “huge danger.”
Breitbart News reported on September 10th that White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed to reporters that President Obama has directed the federal government to prepare for 10,000 additional Syrian refugees in 2016. According to Earnest, that would bring the total to 100,000 political refugees that would be welcomed into the U.S. in 2015. Additional funds from Congress would have to be obtained to accommodate the refugees. West noted the contrast in that “Christians are being held up and are not being accepted by families here.”
With regard to the danger from the Iran nuclear deal and referring to Iran’s leadership and the Ali Khamenei, West commented, “Their goals and designs have not changed, and their rhetoric has increased.” He said it is “ironic that we are about to remember 9/11, both in 2001, and in 2012 with Benghazi” and that the Iran resolution is on this day being considered by Congress. Breitbart News reported that the theocratic dictator of Iran, Ayatolla Ali Khamenei, tweeted out the day before 9/11 that Israel would not survive for more than 25 years.
On September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith. A second assault hours later killed two CIA contractors.
West noted that the Iran Nuclear agreement gives Iran a $150 billion windfall, and the agreement does not require Iran to release any American prisoners. Breitbart News has reported about the devastation that Obama’s Iran nuclear deal could cause.
Breitbart Texas also asked Colonel West about hate speech against cops and whites, and the “f**k your flag” movements.
“This is a time of division” that is “part of a premeditated plan over the last 6 ½-7 years, he said. West added, ”The Black Lives Matter movement “is right out of the Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals pitting black against white.” He said that America should be one of “E pluribus unum” or “Out of many one.”
Breitbart News reported in July that a recent conference held in Cleveland by the Black Lives Matter movement featured classes on community organizing. One of the classes taught the tactics of the godfather of the modern Democrat Party, Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky. The courses demonstrated that Black Lives Matter is not merely a disorganized, angry mob, but is at the vanguard of leftist strategy.
The former congressman and black American said that the Black Lives Matter movement is about “fear-mongering.” He also said that the individuals that are a part of it “are not respectful of the rule of law.” He charged many in the movement of being “far more political in nature” and being financially-funded by the left.
With regard to that being discussed by the Black Lives Matter movement, “Noone is talking about the fourth of July weekend in Chicago, there was no black lives matter there,” he said. Breitbart News reported that 47 were shot and ten killed in the city that weekend, including an eight-year-old boy. He said that the Black Lives Matter movement is also not talking about the 14-16 million black babies that have been aborted.
With regard to hate speech and the inciting of violence against whites, he said it was wrong and replied, “Put the shoe on the other foot. What would be hate speech is acceptable politicized speech [by the Left].” He said the speech should be prosecuted.
He also called the execution of Deputy Darren Goforth in Houston “horrific” and the targeting of 28 law enforcement officers something leadership must address.
He said that “the progressive socialist left is cherry-picking what’s covered by free speech.” He added that liberals are intolerant when police officers and other Americans speak out.
When asked about what he thought about the F**k Your Flag movement and those who would burn the American flag or police uniforms he said, these individuals “are undermining the rule of law and are showing a disrespect for national symbols in a way that many countries do not allow this freedom of expression.”
He added that Kim Davis is “the very core of what you see happening,” and called the persecution of bakers and florists “hateful.”
Davis is the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk who has refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. A federal judge put her into jail. A Breitbart News report included a video showing Davis squaring off with two emotional homosexual men demanding that she issue them a marriage license. Her refusal to do so on the basis of her religion, should be accommodated under the First Amendment many say.
