West to the West Wing 2012 is part of a movement that started sometime in the fall of 2010, when thousands of people around the country, independently of each other, all started getting the same idea at the same time: We need Allen West as the GOP presidential nominee — and as soon as possible, i.e., in 2012. Videos of Allen West’s speeches and interviews had been going viral on the internet for months, and the movement picked up a lot of momentum after West’s victory in the FL-22 Congressional race.
This blog was born exactly one week after that historic conservative sweep of the U.S. House, state governorships and state legislatures all across the country. I had spent much of that week pondering the way forward, given the unprecedented threats to America at this time: a foreign enemy, radical Islam, whose adherents are not deterred by threats to their own lives the way all previous enemies have been deterred; and an enemy within, including, for the first time in our history, a president who actively desires to punish and damage America.
I had long been a huge supporter of Sarah Palin, as described elsewhere on this site, and had hoped to see her as President some day. However, the fact that in the last two years, the “intensely negative” percentages in opinion polls about her had not budged even the tiniest bit– despite her impressive accomplishments — made me think long and hard. And while Sarah had shown boldness and genius in skewering the domestic enemy, i.e., the socialists in Congress and the White House, I was discouraged that I had not seen leadership from her on the issue of Islam. Indeed, I had not seen such leadership from any American politician except one: Allen West.
I am perhaps more familiar than most Americans with Islam and its horrific history — and particularly, as a woman, I am outraged by Islam’s acceptance of “honor” killings, rape, genital mutilation, polygamy, forced marriages, child brides, and in the most extreme Muslim areas of the world, forced head-to-toe shrouding (the burqa) and prohibition of girls’ schooling. I have long been utterly disgusted with the willful ignorance and despicable cowardice of most of our political leaders on the threat to our civilization from Islam, not only from terrorists but from the creeping shariah right here within our own country. The first time I saw Allen West on YouTube, I literally clapped and cheered. He spoke authoritatively and boldly, not dodging the uncomfortable truths about Islam as nearly every other politician does.
I started this blog because I believed — and still do — that Allen West is more qualified and more committed to fight the Islamofascist threat than anyone else in this country. And he is pro-life, which is a sine qua non for any politician I could ever support. Those were the only two things I needed to know about him for him to get my enthusiastic support. But in the time that I’ve been doing this blog, as I have researched and explored and learned much more about this man, he has only continued to impress me. He is a very, very rare man, a once-in-a-lifetime leader. If Obama the appeaser is our generation’s Neville Chamberlain — for the radical Islamists are most certainly the Nazis of our time, only worse — then Allen West is, I am firmly convinced, our Winston Churchill. America needs this man — this great man — in the White House.
“King of the New Media” Andrew Breitbart gets it:
Allen West made a commitment to the people of FL-22 and, being a man of honor and integrity, he will keep that commitment. He committed to serving his district wholeheartedly, as the best Congressman he can be, and that is exactly what he will do — i.e., he will not be running for president. This is why he must be drafted for the nomination — and that, we know from history, can only happen if there is a massive grassroots movement.
If, after exploring this site, you find yourself in agreement with the thousands of us who have come to believe that Allen West’s leadership offers hope for this country — indeed, perhaps our last hope — then please pass the word to your friends. Along with this site, there are several other websites and Facebook pages that support Allen West for President. Two of my favorites are: Go West 2012 and ALLEN WEST for President.
Share these with your friends. 2012 is coming fast!
