CNN’s Soledad O’Brien Freaks Out; Then is Spanked by Congressman Allen West

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 19, 2012

The video of a recent interview by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien of Florida Congressman Allen West is telling on various fronts.  First, the anger and disdain shown by Ms. O’Brien to Congressman West is not only unprofessional for a newscaster, but unmasks her total Leftist political bias.  It also reminds us Libertarian Conservatives why we respect the good Congressman so much.

It is interesting that Ms. O’Brien take such offense to Congressman West labeling some of his compatriots in Congress as “Communists”.  O’Brien in typical Leftist fashion, rejects as almost sacrilegious any label placed on fellow Leftists that might offend middle America.  Given Progressive socio-economic views, you would think that the Left would be proud of their beliefs.  In addition, Ms. O’Brien and her fellow Leftists have no problem labeling those they disagree with such phrases as extremist, the Christian Right, etc.

While many on the right of center support Mitt Romney, that support for some in this group is tepid and more out of concern for the continued radical leftist policies that will occur should Barack Obama be reelected.  On the other hand, the reelection of Obama will significantly increase the likelihood that a Constitutionalist and more conservative politician like Allen West will be elected in 2016.  Is that possibility that should be of more concern to Leftists like Soledad O’Brien than Congressman West’s use of adjectives.  But that would take a strategic thinking.
