Message to liberal progressives: This We’ll Defend

Greetings from Rogers, Arkansas. Over the past two days I’ve seen the beauty of the foothills of the North Georgia mountains in Rome and the Ozarks in Arkansas, as I spoke in Sebastian County (Ft. Smith) last night.

At the Sebastian County Lincoln dinner I was reunited with two of my former colleagues, and friends Rep. Tim Griffin, who is running for Lieutenant Governor, and Rep. Steve Womack, a close confidante. Rep. Tom Cotton was unable to attend due to an illness in his family, and I ask you to please keep his wife in your prayers.

The great bond between all of us is that we have all served in uniform in the U.S. Army. Griffin, Cotton, Womack, Rep. Crawford and myself are a Band of Brothers who have been blessed to serve our nation as Soldiers and legislators.

And that bond means we will come to each other’s aid to support at the drop of a dime. That’s something liberal progressives don’t seem to comprehend, especially since Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor and his gremlins decided to attack me for coming to Arkansas and supporting my brothers. We already know the disdain Pryor has for those who’ve served in uniform but we also know how the Democrat party feels about military service with the disrespectful post they issued attacking another fellow Army veteran and paratrooper, Lee Zeldin.

To liberal progressives, support our troops is just a bumper sticker slogan, no different from other bumper sticker slogans like “Hope and Change.” It is incumbent for all of us to see through the charade of their empty rhetoric and slogans.

It’s imperative that we see through the emptiness of their hearts and recognize these progressive socialists for who they are: power driven radicals who despise the Constitutional Republic we call home, America. Their design is simple, as articulated by President Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, to “fundamentally transform America.”

They will attack, denigrate, demean, and destroy anyone who seeks to stand against them and protect this Country from their radical intent. The motto of the US Army is “This We’ll Defend” and is emblazoned on the badge earned by Army Drill Instructors. This is what Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor doesn’t understand. This is what Senator Harry Reid doesn’t comprehend. And this is what Barack Obama doesn’t believe in.

But this is why we stand as Guardians of the Republic against the progressive socialist onslaught and why we press the attack to restore this great and exceptional land to its original intent and promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as the unalienable rights of all Americans.

Today I will speak at a volunteer rally in Springdale and will share why we need them as the foot soldiers on this ideological battlefield.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of seeing so much of our America over the past week, and still have Texas (Dallas, Austin, College Station, Houston, Waco) and Michigan (Spring Arbor, Jackson County) to go before returning home.

Americans are looking for solutions and answers to the travails they’re facing due to the failures of liberal progressivism. They’re tired of the lies — and I mean blatant lies — perpetuated by a liberal media who enables a certain ideological domination of our Republic.

Americans are tired of being out of work and not accounted for, as the workforce participation rate is at its lowest since the last progressive socialist president, Jimmy Carter. They’re seeing their wages depressed while food prices, gas prices, insurance premiums rise. They’re tired of the disrespect shown to their Judeo-Christian faith heritage all for the sake of some insidious political correct agenda that affords secular humanists and radical Islamists advantages.

Americans want to be proud, and there is nothing wrong with the sense of pride that comes from being a citizen of a country that has achieved so much in just 237 years. It is so because we promote the indomitable individual entrepreneurial spirit –but excessive taxation, regulation, and intrusive government growth is stymieing that spirit.

And Americans want to see better educational opportunities for their children — not top-down government driven gimmicks financially beneficial to a group of elites — yes I speak of common core.

However, with all this, there is a resilience, and rugged determination in the eyes of my fellow countrymen and women. I see it throughout my travels. There is a commitment to resist defeat and “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Our greater days are ahead because we don’t quit and we don’t give up Americans don’t surrender because “This We’ll Defend.”

Basically, the democrats were all about “support the troops” when they needed us to be George Bush’s victims. Now that Bush is gone, they don’t give a flip about us.

The leftist mindset is as prevalent at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) as it is in higher education institutions such as Ivy league schools. I doubt conservatism is tolerated at HBCU’s. I have what it takes to get into Ivy League. However, my preferences would be Grove City College or Hillsdale College here in Michigan.

Thanks for taking the time to visit “My Arkansas.” I love it as I love the USA but it’s going to take strong leaders and patriots to restore and preserve it.

I am so upset I missed it. I had been trying for days to figure out where this even was going to be held but now that it’s over I do! Keep up the support for our candidates Col. West! We need you as a leader!

Support the troops from the mouth of liberals means as much as if they had said support abolishing abortion. Liberalsm is a cancer to the health and well being of America and most definitely to its fighting force. #proudAmericanVeteran

“Liberalism is a cancer. . . ” That it is. Had I not abandoned leftism, (my preferred term) it would have did me in like it has done so in the black community. Stand strong, friend!

Pure comedy. Complain, complain and more complaining! How bout instead of doing all of this complaining you offer solutions to the american public! Complaining benefits you financially because these people will BUY anything the right wing is selling!

We have solutions, but we need to investigate Benghazi first, once we impeach Obama and Biden and hillary and kerry and have taxcuts, then the other problems can be tended to.

Said the kool-aid drinker without a clue. Why don’t you try and defend your leftest presidents policies? All your doing is complaining about the complaining. Awareness comes before change. The article does that.

how can the people be free if the market isn’t free? We need to have more taxcuts, repeal all EPA and labor laws and eliminate the minimum wage so that the same conditions in China are present here. Then we will have more jobs for American workers. We also need to eliminate all social welfare programs, repeal obamacare so there is more motivation to work for what these companies will pay. It has been very unfair to the jobcreators that they have to pay taxes for things like unemployment, social security and medicade/medicare. Enough is enough, stand up my fellow… Read more »

Hilarious. Yesterday, Mr West wrote about how he wanted to follow Reagan’s example of uniting Americans and not being divisive. Today, he writes an incredibly divisive article, accusing everyone on the left of hating the military and America. I’m impressed. It took Mr West less than a day to completely abandon his pledge to unite Americans. Well Mr West, speaking as a proud patriotic Army veteran who is also a liberal, I hope you remember what you wrote in this article… what you wrote about how sickened you are by phony patriots who never served but constantly profess their support… Read more »
