Stand Up For God By Giving Allen West Your Money

Put one on your friend's back!Remember when we told you about how the DNC delegates did that voice vote about putting God and Jerusalem in the platform, and the mayor of Los Angeles just made up the results, and then it kind of looked like the Democrats were booing God?

Don’t worry, somebody noticed.

Though the stupid fake voice vote is pretty much meaningless, Rep. Allen West (R-Kabul) specializes in stupid fake things that are pretty much meaningless (see: 18th-century treaties).

“Dems deny God 3 times. Allen is leading our fight against the radical left,” his campaign posted on Facebook.

And then, the most predictable of campaign imperatives: “Donate.”

And there’s even a fancy graphic! So all your Facebook friends will know that you have Defended God with your Holy Pile Of Campaign Cash.

Because whoa, everybody, how could you NOT be so outraged that the Democrats leave God out of their platform! This is America, where the Establishment Clause only counts if it wasn’t “the faith of the founding fathers,” which we have decided includes hating gay people and something about believing in lake monsters.

Also, it’s kind of his job now to be making Big Stinks, since Mitt Romney named him co-chair of the Romney Council on Why Don’t Any Black People Like Me, next to Rep. Tim Scott and Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer “I Did Not Fellate That Woman” Carroll.

This is a familiar West tactic: Make something up, then ask for money to FIGHT THE MARXISM. Last time he pulled it, he was telling people Bill Maher called him an ape (and also taking credit for leading the Republican Party).

Just so you know, the Democrats do use “God” once in their platform:

We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.

Well, that’s nice, in a doesn’t-mean-anything-in-particular kind of way. How do the Republicans use “God” in their platform (PDF)?

…our rights come from God…

Ok, that’s pretty tame.

We offer our Republican vision of a free people using their God-given talents…


We are the party of the Constitution, the solemn compact which confirms our God-given individual rights…

Got it.

In a free society, the primary role of government is to protect the God-given, inalienable, inherent rights of its citizens…

Really. It’s pretty clear.

We acknowledge, support, and defend the lawabiding citizen’s God-given right of self-defense…

Well, that’s kind of new. Stand your ground — for the Lord. Still, though, the Dems are saying the same stupid thing as the GOP. What are we arguing about again? That random delegate-folk booed a sham vote?

To be fair, there’s a little more in the GOP platform with the “God” stuff:

We condemn decisions by activist judges to deny children the opportunity to say the Pledge of Allegiance in its entirety, including “Under God,” in public schools and encourage States to promote the pledge. We condemn the actions of those who deny our children the means by which to show respect for our great country and the constitutional principles represented by our flag.

Ah, there it is! How dare Democrats not agree with the GOP on this issue! Showing respect for the Constitution means children are made to recite patriotic pledges with state-prescribed religious language in it. To suggest courts take a look at its constitutionality would be disrespectful to Constitutions everywhere.

But, in case you’ve forgotten that the Constitution says pretty specifically that the state can’t just be deciding which religions to endorse, a certain party put the language of it on the front cover of its platform:

It's faint, so faint we should all ignore it.Oh, forget the technicalities, the Democrats booed God! And Allen West needs money! Also, attention. A lot of attention.

So much, in fact, that he’s practically been live-blogging the DNC himself. We had one (er, a bunch), but without West would we have ever learned that Democrats hate Jews, for example, and that an Obama slogan, “Forward,” is actually “the Marxist/Socialist theme from the old Soviet Union”? It’s so true!

(Nazis have dibs on the Charlie Chaplin mustache, and Marxists have dibs on any verbs Democrats happen to use ever.)

Oh, and also, Michelle Obama said that the “great American dream” for some might happen to be gay marriage, but West reminds us that this is not true.

I thought serving a career in the military in several combat zones was patriotic…and being the third of four generations which has done so. Well Mrs. Obama, THAT is the American dream, and why I have always been proud of my country.

Shame on you, Mrs. Obama. Everyone knows icky sinner-gays are not the American dream — killing Bad Guys is the American dream, duh, and Allen West is here to remind us about it.

Thank God.

    God can stand up for himself; Allen West should get a job if he needs money, not beg for handouts.

    1. PeaceWithHonor

      No, Allen is right. God is a quadriplegic with really low self-esteem. West, Bachmann and King are co-sponsoring the Deities with Disabilities Act.

  2. BoatOfVelociraptors

    Well, god IS kind of a cripple these days. Can't even get his ass to mars. Had to outsource that business to NASA.

  3. FraAnima

    Different sign version:

    "I'm with stupid."


    "I went to the Rapture, and all I got was this stupid t-shirt."

    1. sullivanst

      Given the content of his character, it's no surprise Allen West would prefer to be judged by the color of his skin.

      1. Boojum

        Actor, I can't stop laughing. You give new meaning to "Sunday Brunch."

        I'll have the Jesus Benedict, please

    1. Callyson

      Thank you for this link–I have felt ill since waking up at 5:30 AM to get the jobs numbers, only to get a sinking feeling when Bloomberg TV reported the figures and going back to bed.

      Also–Nate Silver has Virginia as light blue? Wow…

  4. freakishlywrong

    You'd think a guy that terrorized Iraqis would not welcome Sharia Christian dogma influencing laws in our country..

  5. Serolf_Divad

    Wait, I thought the American dream was borrowing a bunch of money from your dad then starting a business that specializes in leveraged buyouts of other companies, firing half the workforce, outsourcing the other half, liquidating pensions and then paying yourself millions of dollars in bonuses with the crushing debt you forced these companies to accrue?

    Have I been wring this whole time? I'm so confused!

    1. freakishlywrong

      Once I can afford to get muh teef fixed, I'll be a self-made millionaire just like Mitt! I have yet to build it!

    2. grace_nearing

      **Have I been wrong this whole time? **

      No, but you did forget the multiple-fee fees Bain charges their clients for facilitating their corporate deaths.

  6. Terry

    "I thought serving a career in the military in several combat zones was patriotic…and being the third of four generations which has done so. Well Mrs. Obama, THAT is the American dream, and why I have always been proud of my country."

    The American dream is being able to enlist in the military? Seems like a whole lot of countries pursue the American dream, including North Korea.

    1. FraAnima

      No no, killing Muslins is the American dream, and has been since the founding fathers created this great nation.

      In the words of Thomas Jefferson: "We shall smite the towel heads at home and abroad, for the glory of our Republic."

    “Mitt Romney named him co-chair of the Romney Council on Why Don’t Any Black People Like Me”

    Hell I’m only a light shade of taupe and he still makes my skin crawl!

    1. Tundra Grifter

      I think it was in the 1930's when a baseball player caught a ball dropped from the top of the Washington Monument.

      He snared it, but the force broke his jaw.

  8. Texan_Bulldog

    I'm going to hate everyone until this election is over–although some people (see West, Allen are easier to hate than others…along with all my crazy FB friends who constantly post the stupid pictures and tell me how much a Socialist/Marxist/Kenyan/America hater Barry is).

  9. CrunchyKnee

    Sheeeeeiiiiiiiiiitttttttt. I thought the More-mans didn't recognize the blahs as heaven-worthy until the 70s or so. Radical left, my ass.

  10. el_donaldo

    Instead of donating to West for his god, give your dollars to me and my sky god, Marduk! I promise that my imaginary friend will stand taller and stronger for a third of the money of West's guy. Promise. Plus Marduk will protect us from mystical ocean dragon gods as an additional bonus.

  11. Bezoar

    No, but it's true, remember how before Soviet communism we always had to say "No, stop, turn around, go the opposite of backward!"

    1. kittensdontlie

      It is surprising to find out back then, that only the communists had a clear vision on which direction was best to go. Christians had some idea with their "ONWARD Christian Soldiers", but which way is 'onward'?

    Romney Council on Why Don’t Any Black People Like Me, next to Rep. Tim Scott and Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer “I Did Not Fellate That Woman” Carroll.

    Does anybody pity Tim Scott here?

    Don't. Well, not completely, at any rate.

      1. PinkoPopulist

        Perhaps this is why he's a black conservative and not a liberal. I'm still waiting for science to catch up to this theory.

  14. CleverSobriquet

    This should cover us. (Thanks to Roger Zelazny)

    Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to insure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen.

      1. sullivanst

        Bad news for Sheley though: if it's anything like my conception of what heaven would be if it existed, she'll think it's hell.

  15. Guppy

    “Dems deny God 3 times. Allen is leading our fight against the radical left,”

    So did Peter. Does that mean he was a crypto-Muslim, too?

    Well Mrs. Obama, THAT is the American dream,

    It's official: Republicans literally dream of a world with war, war and more war.

    1. Naked_Bunny

      Dems deny God 3 times. Allen is leading our fight against the radical left

      Hmm. Since Peter was the apostle who denied Jesus three times, but went on to found the Christian religion and become the most important apostle, I guess this metaphor puts Allen into the position of Pilate and means his supporters are demanding the release of Barabbas.

  16. Naked_Bunny

    For an all-powerful, infinite being, God sure needs a lot of emotional and financial support from poorly educated mortals on fixed incomes.

  17. PinkoPopulist

    The terms Allen, West and God in one headline give me a tingly sensation in my pants. Anyone know what this might be?

  18. Chichikovovich

    "Dems deny God 3 times"

    Well, West knows that his Christianist base of supporters certainly will understand what he is alluding to here:

    The Democrats are a rock on which Christ will found His Church.

    1. Naked_Bunny

      Vocal Christians who demand that everyone respect their religion even though they don't know anything about it? That's new. /snark

  19. LibrarianX

    Poor God – all powerful omnipotent creator of the universe. People are being mean to him/it/whatever and needs our help. With, er – money…

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      God has run up a bit of an infinite debt over the infinite time He's been around doing stuff, and of course He would never violate God-given Constitutional Republican principles by creating more greenbacks.

      1. StillGoinGreen

        Maybe they are raising funds to purchase many holy hand grenades of Antioch to lobbest at we heathen Demoncraps!

  20. Biel_ze_Bubba

    So "under God" is a constitutional principle? I don't suppose West can point out where we might find that in the Constitution. (The actual one, not the Xtard fantasy one that Jeebus gave to George Washington, that time he was in Jerusalem.)

  21. timbo71351

    Christ, what an insufferable asshole. Is this just an act to get the drooling old wingnut vote, or is this guy really that big of a dick?

  22. Tundra Grifter

    I recall Abraham Lincoln saying something about how we'd all be far better off if we spent less time claiming God is on our side, and more time working to be sure we are on God's side.

  23. Tundra Grifter

    So, in Allen West's world, Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple because they had max'd out their Federal campaign contribution limits?

  24. Peckerwood_Pete

    If Allen West needs money, he ought to consider pulling his begging ass up by the boot straps…. maybe even getting a 2nd or 3rd job… it's a "uniquely American" thing to do, you know….

  25. randcoolcatdaddy

    God helps those who help themselves.

    I always help myself to some earplugs when Allen West is in the room.

  26. BarackMyWorld

    Allen West: using religion to distract people from how terrible you are at your job since whenever the hell it was he was elected.

  27. TribecaMike

    Peter denied knowing Jesus three times and he went on to establish one of the world's largest religions. See ya in the Liberal Vatican, sucka!

  28. TribecaMike

    In 303 CE, the emperor Diocletian ordered his soldiers throughout the Roman empire to destroy churches, confiscate and burn their sacred books and strip anyone who resisted of civil rights, status, and police protection. Christians in Alexandria reported that 660 of their own were killed in that city alone between 303 and 310.

    The radical left's persecution skills obviously leave a lot of room for improvement.

  29. Lazy Media

    Democrats denied God three times. Peter denied Jesus three times, and went on to be the first Pope. Therefore, Democrats molest children and cover it up.

  30. azeyote

    i think i'll take my ass down to walmart with a sign that says god loves me and loves you too for giving me all your money – and your daughter too.

  31. ttommyunger

    So, not being able to make it in our Army, Allen enlists in the Army Of Gawd. Jeez, they'll take anybody.
