After two weeks of tallying errors and irregularities, legal challenges, recounts and mysteriously discovered ballots, Florida Republican Allen West conceded his contentious House race to Democrat Patrick Murphy Tuesday morning.

Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” West reiterated his vow to remain a steadfast and loyal public servant.

West believes further legal action will do nothing to alter the outcome of the race and congratulated his opponent in a written statement.

While West graciously conceded to Murphy, he made it clear that he’s not conceding the fight for life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Thank you for your lifetime of service, Rep. West.

And the sore winners begin to slither out of the gutter, dripping with the usual sludge:


More “tolerance”:

  • nc

    God bless Col. West. I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of this great patriot. He was the Dems worst nightmare, and will continue to make his voice heard.

    • Maria

      Maybe he will run for President in 2016! He’s got my vote.

      • walterc

        That was my thought, Now’s the time to get a committee started.

        • Maria

          No time like the present.

  • Gary Randolph

    Thank You Col West, You are a Great American and this system that You fought to protect has failed. May God Bless and Protect You and Your Family!

  • Bob Smooper

    Tea Party Failure Allen West finally concedes after wasting Tax Payers money on a fruitless early voting recount in which he actually lost MORE votes than the first count!

    What a waste of time. The Tea Party has had a terrible election.

  • Maria

    And what have any of those Liberals done to defend our Nation? Nothing. Col. West put his life on the line to serve this Nation, and he gets hate and racism spewed at him, and not even one “thanks” by these Liberal brats!

    Thank you, Colonel, for your service to this once great Nation and we will fight to get it back! God Bless you!

    EDIT: For people like Tony Montana who lack reading comprehension skills, the Liberals I was referring to in my 1st paragraph are the ones in the tweets above.

    • TonyMontana3

      There are many liberals serving in the military right now. About 25-30% of the millitary are liberals, that’s about 400,000 – 500,000 liberal US soldiers defending this country so that cowards like you don’t have to.

      • Eff Em

        If cowards don’t serve then 95% of the nation is cowards, including Obama, 99% of his administration, and democrat idols like Sharpton, Jackson, Pelosi, Reid, and the late Grand Wizard of the KKK and democrat senator Robert Byrd. How about that?

        • Maria

          Tony Montana, a close relative of Hannah Montana, calls everyone cowards because he is a coward himself. He’d NEVER serve in the Military. He wouldn’t last through basic training.

      • Eff Em

        If cowards don’t serve then 95% of the nation is cowards, including Obama, 99% of his administration, and democrat idols like Sharpton, Jackson, Pelosi, Reid, and the late Grand Wizard of the KKK and democrat senator Robert Byrd. How about that?

      • Maria

        My Husband served in the U.S. Army, was injured in the line of duty in Afghanistan, and is a Conservative. He served so YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO. I also served my Military you ungrateful slob, even though because of a medical problem I was excluded from serving Active Duty, even though I did sign up for the Army. I stood with my Troops and worked side by side with them, working for the Department of Defense. So don’t presume to call ME a coward. I’ve done more for my country than you EVER have. I also volunteered to deploy because I wanted to be overseas supporting them in person. If anyone is a coward, it’s you. And yes all Military and dependents alike, we laugh at yellow bellied cowards like yourself.

        Oh and by the way, you may want to learn reading comprehension skills. The Liberals I was referring to were the ones in the tweets above. Nice to make an ass out of you as always.

    • Pater Tempus

      And just what are we supposed to thank the colonel for, Elle…..disgracing the uniform?

      • Maria

        For serving the U.S. You must be one of those Liberals who spits on service members who don’t agree with your ideology. Typical. You sicken me.

        • MissDiane47

          Elle Sunderland … it’s Viet Nam all over again – I may be too young to remember it, but my parents and grandparents told me about how horrible our troops were treated upon coming home. I have a cousin who served three tours over there – and he was also spat upon just like West is now … it just breaks my heart! :'(

          • Maria

            It’s sickening really.. We should be thankful to them all! No matter what war. Yeah, I heard stories about it too. My Dad served over there for awhile (and in Desert Shield/Storm). I’m not sure I could hold myself back from decking someone who spit on me. Kudos to our Troops’ discipline and restraint.

          • MissDiane47

            Amen to that, Elle! Yes, Kudos to our troops!

  • John Barry

    Good riddance. He was an embarrassment to both the armed forces and the country. Light Colonel West was given the honor of commanding a battalion in war and couldn’t handle the position. His poor decision(s) in command make us all look bad.

    • Bad things coming

      You are as full of crap as YOUR comrade in chief. The embarrassment is all yours dumbo. Can’t wait to see what y’all will do when the money runs out. Who are you going to go after then? I would take Allen West on any day rather than the POS in the White House or any of his supporters. Too bad that good people have to fight to save miserable a holes like you.

    • Bob Loblaw

      Your clown outfit is an embarassment to Hamas.

    • goldwater89

      Disagree with the man’s politics? Fine. But to criticize his military service is just disgusting.

    • Lizzy Reiley

      You’re a vile person to criticize someone’s military service. But we expect no less from a racist leftist such as yourself.

  • Todd Hackett

    Racist leftie haters are happy. What a sad, lonely, disagreeable bunch of morons. We already have a super-flake in COngress down here and a serialliar Wasserman-Shultz now we got this Murphy yahoo.

    • deano24

      You forgot that Alan Grayson was re-elected back into congress.

    • TonyMontana3

      Allen West is arrogant, hateful and very divisive. And a sore loser.

      • T-Bird

        You imbecile. West was an honest forthright man and you demiggas couldn’t take that from a person of color. If he wasn’t following odumbo blindly, he must be wrong. You’re a disgrace.

      • LochGates44

        That sounds like every Liberal Democrat in this country.

      • Lizzy Reiley

        And the above tweets show all of your true colors as well as your libtard comrades. You all are a bunch of racists and race baiters and then turn around and calls us hateful and racist? Maybe y’all need to go look in a mirror. Get a life Tony. Nobody here cares about your warped view of the world.

  • USAPatriotSC

    If West runs as an Independent in 2016 then he can challenge the vote fraud. The GOP gave up all rights to do anything about vote fraud in 1981 in an agreement with the Democrats. Go Independent Col. West and you can win.

  • syvyn11

    West for GOP Chairman. That will drive the left nuts.

  • michael s

    He is being asked to run in Georgia, maybe that is his comeback. I wanted him to win, didn’t happen. Racism was used against him. I’m glad its being acknowledged. This was bound to happen when I repeat he was stabbed in the back by his own party when his district was redrawn. Rep West got it from both sides.


    About F’n time

    2 down, 1 to go!

    Wake up Minnesota!

    • LochGates44

      So you’re a racist and sexist.

      • Lizzy Reiley

        That’s what he is saying. Racist and sexist.

  • Andrew

    God speed Ltc West. Bayonets!

  • riddler1620

    Using the ambassador Rice model as a standard, isn’t the snarky tweets about Alan West tantamount to racism from Democrats? Where is the outrage from President Obama and Rep. Claytborn.

    • Armando

      Those tweets are from private rogue citizens: The Republicans don’t need to be outraged and/or apologize for all the racists tweets against the President.

  • Bob Smooper

    It is a good day to be alive! I do give him some credit for not making a complete mess of this like he did with his military career.

    I hope he can find gainful employment – perhaps in Walmart – all the best Allen!

  • dwsmokin

    As if we needed more proof that the party of intolerance, hatred, and bigotry is the new Democratic party. From such noble beginnings to this-shame.

  • TonyMontana3


    • LochGates44

      Why are you telling us what your mother told you when turned 18?

      • Lizzy Reiley


    • Maria

      Wow, such racism from you.

    • Lizzy Reiley


  • Terika

    Can’t help but assume that NONE of those abusive/racist tweeters got suspended from Twitter. Nope. Don’t see that happ’nin’. (I was suspended 4 times in 1 month – saying NOTHING EVEN CLOSE to those above!!!) Selective “Free Speech” and all…

  • Terika

    Wish Allen West wd’ve had better timing if he had to concede his stolen seat – cd’ve been in Iowa w/Rubio!!!!

  • Debbie Powell Evans

    You don’t suppose the lefties are racist, do you???????????

  • A Willful Boy

    Well that’s what he deserves for always punching and raping white women. :eyeroll:

  • Smitty 

    Some of these morons are so effing retarded, I might not like Congressman West, or his views, but these retards and Debbie Wassermann-Schultz make me embarassed to even associate with the democrats. (Just as I am sure there are Conservatives who embarass other conservatives)

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    “Minstrel show”? Surely the left didn’t pull a racist tweet like that!

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    “Minstrel show”? Surely the left didn’t pull a racist tweet like that!

  • Lin Jarvis

    The racial tolerance of the liberals extends only to those who toe their line. #liberal racists: [email protected],[email protected],[email protected]_iii,[email protected],[email protected]
    Shame on you. Shame on you all. Racists and hypocrites.

  • Beth Larsen

    I’m glad he stood up and fought. Maybe if the rest of the republicans would have done the same he wouldn’t have been fighting alone. So frustrated with the blind eyes being turned on all the voter fraud reports.

  • Pater Tempus

    Good bye, Dwayne Wayne…..

  • JamesS

    Everyone of course is entitled to their freedom of speech, but Mr West said some pretty crazy things. I think that is one of the reasons he lost. Best of luck Col West!

  • Seewetoldu

    Here ya go, the first word that comes to mind is ignorant. Keep talking your setting yourselves back 60 years. You blacks are a disgrace to all blacks. And Col West will have his day!

  • Brandon

    Rubio/West 2016

    • Gary Jackson

      Rubio is an amnesty shill and Jeb Bush’s boy. He’s also corrupt. West YES, Rubio NEVER

  • dralfredbellows

    To all the haters out there on Allen West, you are unworthy to polish his military dress shoes. And if you tried, he’d kick your lily a$$es.

  • Jay Stevens

    The only thing worse than a sore loser is a sore winner.
