Former Congressman Allen West commented on the military’s recent idiotic decision to remove the Nativity scenes displayed at Guantanamo Bay’s dining halls solely on the basis of a few complaints. As usual, West combatted liberal PC ideology with common sense rational thought to arrive at the correct solution.

Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly had Military Freedom From Religion founder Mikey Weinstein on his show Thursday night. His group received the initial objections to the Nativity scenes, and he in turn complained to the military.

Weinstein continuously talked over “The O’Reilly Factor” host during their debate, and as a result, O’Reilly got out little other than the fact that Christmas is a federal holiday depicted by the Nativity scene.

In West’s typical, no-nonsense style, the former Army Lt. Col. gave his own opinion of the Nativity scene debacle, and used his 21-year military career to do it in his latest column.

“I find it unconscionable that Christians would complain about a Nativity scene in the chow hall, he wrote, before noting what his reaction as base commander would have been.

“If I were the commander, I would have told these individuals, Since you feel offended by the representation of Christmas in the chow hall, I will allow you to enter through the back kitchen area and receive a take-out plate during chow hours for the duration of the time the Nativity scene is displayed. You feel free to tell Mr. Weinstein he can engage in copious amounts of strenuous self-gratification and have a good day. And don’t pretend to tell me how to run anything on this base.’”

West next turned his attention to the real problem — Weinstein and his Military Freedom From Religion Foundation.

“But I want to make sure you know exactly how dangerous this Mr. Weinstein truly is,” West said. “He has referred to individuals who profess their faith as committing acts of sedition. He has taken it upon himself to attack any religious symbols or references in the US military — and recently had the words “under God” removed from the US Air Force Academy honor oath – from where he graduated, by the way.”

West then noted Weinstein’s ultimate goal.

“He has anointed himself as some provocateur of ensuring there is ‘separation of church and state,’ when his actual objective is the elimination of America’s Judeo-Christian faith heritage and its connection to military service.”
