West: Hagel Is A 'Traitor,' Obama Only Helps People On Welfare
Former congressman Allen West is furious about the announcement of new defense budget cuts, calling them “unconscionable” and part of “Barack Obama’s game plan to weaken the United States of America.”
In an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios today, West called defense secretary Chuck Hagel a “turncoat” and a “traitor to the men and women in uniform.”
The Tea Party leader told Rios that the Obama administration wants to intentionally harm military service members and their families because they are “not their constituency.”
“Their constituency is basically the welfare nanny state, their constituency are the people who they can get hooked on government largesse, their constituency is the growing poverty class and also the growing food stamp class,” West said.
“American strength is a stench to them,” he added, claiming Obama went around the world “apologizing for America’s strength.”
West later railed against “progressive socialists” for their opposition to bans on gays in the military and women in combat roles.
