West’s reply here recalls my own reply to Hamas-linked CAIR a few years ago when they tried to strong-arm the YAF into cancelling a speech I was giving. It is not surprising that Hamas-linked CAIR would characterize the response of the heroically defiant McAuliffe as “baseless rhetoric and schoolboy insults.”
I can’t think of a better response to an attempt to intimidate West, smear freedom fighters, and smooth the way for the stealth jihad. Can you?
Oh, and regarding the contention that people fighting for the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people are “anti-Islamic extremists”: Nuts.
“‹The Florida chapter of the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations sent a letter to Rep. Allen West at the beginning of the month with a request — quit palling around with Islamophobes.
The letter, from [Hamas-linked] CAIR South Florida Executive Director Nezar Hamze, specifically asked West to cut his ties with Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Joe Kaufman, and Joyce Kaufman, among others.
In classic Allen West elegance, he responded to the letter — under his official congressional letterhead — with one word: “NUTS!”
Check out the letter in its entirety after the jump:
Hamze tells the Pulp he thinks West’s use of “NUTS!” is likely a reference to the phrase of World War II lore, which translates to “go to hell.”
Hamze’s official response: “Allen West continues his baseless rhetoric and schoolboy insults.”
