    Allen West Heckled

    Very funny if you consider that West seldom says any "appropriate".

    The froot loop can hand it out but can't take it.

    when you back a party that works for decades to keep black voters from voting then you deserve this treatment

    Hey...............civilians quite often don't know better, so they use inappropriate language.

    Saying that there are around 80 communists in the Democratic party (as West did) is much more offensive.

    I definetly agree with you. Using foul language and signals in a crowd of families is not the brightest thing to do and says more about the heckler and HIS defenders than it does about the candidate. Not funny at all.

    Perhaps "socialists" would have been more accurate.

    But, he didn't say that, he said "communist" because he knows it's a word that inspires fear and mistrust.
