Allen West sets crowd on FIRE as Obama’s Iran-deal protest fills Times Square

The Obama-friendly media is not likely to make a big deal about it, but as many as 10,000 people turned out in Times Square on Wednesday to protest President Obama’s controversial nuclear deal with Iran.

Dubbed the “Stop Iran Deal Rally,” protesters filled the streets to call on Congress to reject the agreement.

Those who turned out in support of the rally ran the political gamut, from liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who called the event a “great display of democracy in action,” to former U.S. Rep. Allen West, a tea party favorite.

West spoke at the event and eviscerated Obama for “surrendering” to Iran, calling the president a “weakling” and “charlatan.”

“I want President Obama to know one thing,” he said in a fiery speech. “You may say that you have done something that no one else has done. You know why no one else has done it? Because it’s a damn stupid thing you just did.”

“If people are upset because of what I’m saying, I really don’t care,” West added. “Because I had a father that stood at World War II … I gave 22 years of my life to make sure that that great beacon of liberty, freedom and democracy continues to stand. And I have a nephew, I have friends that are still serving on the front lines — and my commitment is to the oath that I took on 31, July, 1982, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Social media lit up with images of the massive protest that featured a huge mushroom cloud plastic balloon.
