CAIR auctions off Allen West’s ‘Nuts!’ letter on ebay

Former Congressman Allen West’s “Nuts!” letter went up for auction on ebay today with a starting bid of $1000.

The letter received a wave of national press coverage in July 2011 when it was written as a response to the Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization CAIR’s penning of a letter titled  Cut your ties with anti-Islam Extremist!

The framed paper, hailed as “one of the shortest Congressional Letters ever written in US History,”  is the original letter on official U.S. Congressional stationary signed by Allen West.

The listing states, “This item has something for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a die-hard member of the Tea Party, Democratic Party, or protect the Civil Rights of Americans; this item is perfect for your collection.”

The descriptive “write up” on the item is a series of  hostilities against West, including this sarcastic pitch to West fans “to get them to bid.”

Tea Party– This letter is signed by your fearless Rock Star! If you win this auction you will have signed documented proof that Allen West stood up in the face of your “EVIL” to protect the US (A “Judeo-Christian” Nation) from the Muslims. Your collection can’t go without this item.


This one word response to CAIR Florida executives from Congressman Allen West made national news and he still has not fully explained the letter. The one-word response was either a reflection of Representative West’s state of mind or an allusion to the reply an World War II American general gave to a surrender demand during the siege of Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge.
