Flashback 2010: Wasserman Schultz’s Vile Attack Against Allen West (Video)

|CONTEXT – WASSERMAN SCHULTZ vs. ALLEN WEST
● October 22, 2010 – Rep. Wasserman Schultz claims candidate Allen West is anti-woman:
Wasserman Schultz accused Allen West of having degrading attitudes toward women and claimed Allen West “would take us backwards.”
Wasserman Schultz also peddled lies against Tea Partiers: When asked what is the difference between her protest and the Tea Party protest, the Democrat congresswoman said, “Our protest is different because I don’t see any swastikas or any pictures of the president in black-face or burned in effigy here,” implying that Tea Partiers are racists and extremists. (She probably was confusing the Tea Partiers with leftists calling for the death of President Bush.) She also said that one protester at a community meeting she hosted “shouted from the courtyard that I deserved breast cancer” because she supported the health care law.
As a typical leftist, Wasserman Schultz did not provide any evidence to substantiate her accusations.
Here is the video:
|“It’s no secret that Ron [Klein]’s opponent, Allen West, is a self-described ‘right wing extremist.’ “In fact, he wears his extreme disrespect as a badge of honor. He thinks it’s OK to objectify and denigrate women. He thinks it’s OK to take away our reproductive freedom. He thinks it’s okay to associate with people who refer to women as ‘oral relief stations.’ Well, we’re here to tell him it is not okay.”

|● July 19, 2011 – Rep. Wasserman Schultz attacks Rep. West after he spoke during the debt debate:
(She attacked him by inference, but it is clear she is referring to Rep. West)
|In her remarks on the House floor, Wasserman Schultz had said: “The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan [“Cut, Cap and Balance” bill] that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida.”
She was alluding to a GOP-backed bill to reduce the debt and amend the Constitution to require a balanced federal budget. The House later approved the bill 234-190, but it is unlikely to pass the Democratic Senate.
|Here is the video of her speech.|
|But Wasserman Schultz lied:|
|The “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill makes no changes to Social Security or Medicare. Most of the cuts in the bill come from discretionary spending, anyway, but the bill specifies that the $35 billion cuts to mandatory spending would come from non-veterans, non-Social Security, non-Medicare spending.|

Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
