It’s ISIS, Not ISIL, Congresswoman!

isis  not ISILryan ily jeb and p

By Isabel Matos

Nice life, Congresswoman, but something is wrong. Maybe a little intervention is just what is in order right now for some political clarity. I will do you a favor and provide useful information anyone can find.  (By the way, readers, I know it’s “Not ISIL”, not “no ISIL” but there’s a reason for it being spelled that way.)

Intentionally or not, you have been referring to a group of terrorists in Iraq and Syria as ISIL, not ISIS, a distinction easy to find. As Allen West points out:

ISIL refers to a group of terrorists that has professed the establishment of an Islamic caliphate that refers to itself as IS (Islamic State).

We should all be referring to the savage and barbaric group as ISIS  (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) and not ISIL (The  Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).

Allen West explains how White House spokesmen, Josh Earnest, and Rear Admiral Kirby from the Pentagon, as well as other voices out of the Obama administration, use the term ISIL and why these distinctions matter:

First, if you choose to refer to this group as ISIL, you have basically rewritten the map of the Middle East and fallen into the trap of not recognizing the existence of Israel and also of Lebanon. If you use ISIL you are then validating the Islamic totalitarian and jihadist claim that the modern day Jewish State of Israel is an occupation state and does not exist in the eyes of Muslims.  He continues here:

Second, if you fall into the trap of referring to this group as IS, you have validated the existence of an Islamic caliphate and through your words lend it recognition and credibility.

West concludes:

Lastly, we need to address this group as ISIS because it is seeking to establish an Islamic state within the borders of two recognized nation-states; Iraq and Syria. ISIS can attempt to break down any borders and not recognize them, but we must. We cannot allow this group to reestablish some 7th century regional caliphate and therefore must fight to reestablish sovereignty…

There is an opportunity here to truly promote a country where there can be respect and coexistence of Muslims, Christians, and other religious minorities. A place that would thoroughly reject the idea of Islamic jihadism and would continue to be a reliable ally of the United States.  Read the entire article plus a video explanation here.

I know you believe in Israel and the importance of sending the correct message to terrorists that we do NOT dismiss them or that we would EVER intentionally use the term to imply support of the establishment of a caliphate that calls itself an Islamic state.  I know that. But as Chairman of the Middle East and North African committee you should know the difference.  In case that information did not get to you (in July), I sent you a tweet last week about ISIS vs. ISIL:

I also took the time to make a clip (in Spanish and English for the locals to hear) to show that you have used the term ISIL instead of ISIS in at least three interviews, including in a segment on a recent appearance on Jose Diaz-Balart’s show on none other than MSNBC.  Maybe it was an oversight on your part, but it leaves me wondering why you would having missed such an important point being in a prominent position on foreign policy matters.

I also added in the clip your explanations for having voted against ending DACA, Obama’s illegal amnesty, none of which made sense to me. When you consider praise from LaRaza for work done in favor of amnesty as reason for celebration and joy, I know something is wrong. You’re out of touch. Your job is to protect us, not push the legalization of illegals, which by the way, are part of the Mexican Cartel who have been chatting with ISIS, the group you refuse to identify as such.  Calling it immigration reform is an insult to our intelligence. WE  KNOW you’re wrong. Who do you represent? Jeb Bush or us?

We will need new leadership in Miami if the Republicans we have continue a communist-enabling (suicide) mission. Enough!

I extend an invitation (and a request for a reply) for a meeting or interview, Congresswoman. In case you missed my visit or the note I left at your office:

Dear Ileana,

Please grant me an interview.  I would present you with facts, not opinion, about AMNESTY, to show it is a communist-driven agenda. I’m not alone complaining you’re inaccessible.  

Thank you.

Isabel

Vogue editor André Leon Talley: Allen West’s ‘Coon Minstrely Theatre’ an ‘embarrassment to blacks’ UPDATED

Comrade André Leon Talley, a vile, hate-filled democrat crapweasel

By Gary P Jackson

Remember now, it’s Republicans who are the racists ….

André Leon Talley is an editor at Vogue and misspells “embarrassment.” And yet Allen West is the embarrassment? I guess this moron spent all of his money renewing his KKK membership and can’t afford spell check.

From Twitchy:

Revolting.

André Leon Talley is the former American editor-at-large for Vogue magazine and a current contributing editor. When we last checked in with Talley, he was calling for progressives to boycott a Clint Eastwood film. Today he slithered further into the progressive gutter and joined the other foul-mouthed libs who attacked Rep. Allen West in racial terms when he conceded his House race.

More here.

I don’t know why we expect these evil bastard democrats to act any differently than they do. This is the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, voter intimidation, Margaret Sanger, and institutionalized segregation. I’m beyond fed up with these totalitarian Neo-Nazi weasels who viciously attack anyone who they disagree with, especially women and minorities.

We’ve all seen how democrats treat blacks who “wonder off the plantation” and have the audacity to think for themselves. How dare these black men get “uppity” and defy their masters!

Lt Col Allen West has more integrity and honor in his little finger than every democrat that ever breathed …. combined.

Liberalism is not compatible with civilized society, and it’s time were eradicate this cancer on all of humanity once and for all.

H/T: SarahNet.

****UPDATE****

It seems that besides being a jackass and a racist, André Leon Talley is also a coward. He has since deleted his hate-filled tweets. Of course, being a democrat, he ain’t all that intelligent. Embedded tweets are forever!

Video: Allan West Concedes: “Leaders Don’t Need a Title”

By Gary P Jackson

Seeing there was no clear victory in sight, and not wanting to waste supporters’ hard earned dollars pursuing further legal action, Lt Col Allan West conceded the election this morning.

Here he appears on Fox and Friends echoing Sarah Palin, saying he doesn’t need a title to be effective:

Ed Morrissey reports West sent out an e-mail to his supporters that read, in part:

For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results, and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and this past weekend’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election.

While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-elect Murphy.

[ ... ]

Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.

Photo: Boxes of Uncounted Military Ballots in Allen West’s Florida District

A hero votes. These brave men and women put their lives on the line for all of us, and yet the democrat party consistently works to disenfranchise their vote. It’s an unforgivable evil

By Gary P Jackson

As you know, the democrat party is working feverishly to steal the election in Florida. Specifically Allen West’s seat. It just doesn’t do for a powerful black Conservative to have a voice in Washington. He might convince those enslaved by the democrat party to join him!

Tanya Grimsley tweeted a photo of military ballots just sitting in boxes, that have never been counted. We know the military votes heavily Republican, which explains why the Florida democrats don’t want them counted.

This is disturbing, and we’re hearing reports from all over the country that military ballots haven’t been counted. This is a problem every election season, but this time it’s to the point of criminality.

It’s obvious there are some serious irregularities in the entire 2012 election, but nowhere is vote fraud more evident than in Allen West’s district. Shade of Florida circa 2000, the election board is pulling all kinds of tricks to keep from counting all the votes.

Here Lt Col West talks to Sean Hannity:
