Former Rep. Allen West calls Atty General Holder a bigger threat than al-Qaeda

Allen WestFormer Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) believes that Attorney General Eric Holder is a more dangerous threat to the United States than the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.

West, who lost his bid for re-election in November and is now a Fox News contributor and the Director of Programming for Next Generation TV, made the claim in a fundraising email for his political action committee, the Allen West Guardian Fund.

After posting a side-by-side picture of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, and Holder, West asked the email’s recipients “Which of these emails scares you the most?” The answer, as he then pointed out, was Holder.

“…I’ll tell you flat out — Eric Holder is a bigger threat to our Republic for the very reasons Cicero contemplated over 2,000 years ago,” West wrote in the email. “Al-Qaeda is a very serious and persistent threat, but I trust the U.S. military to protect us from future attacks. I cannot say the same about President Obama and his Justice Department.”

While West’s remarks are among the most extreme made about Holder in recent weeks, he is not alone in wanting Holder replaced in light of the Internal Revenue Service and Associated Press scandals. A recent Rasmussen study found that 47 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the attorney general, and that 42 percent believe he should resign from office.

    I wish you were back in office. I can see now you are a real honest congressman that speaks his mind. Thanks.

  2. MeMikeT says:

    Duh! Without question Holder and of course the Obama are far more dangerous. And we elected the Obama twice. The Obama and his ban of goons art the equivalent of ‘gun free zones’. They made it easy for those that hate America to do much more than burn our flag.

    At this point it’s just sad. Allen needs to get help, maybe get fast-tracked for a meeting with an Army psychologist.

    People are waking up! I really hope this continues and it doesn’t turn out to be too little, too late.
