Allen West - "multiculturalism on steroids" political correctness has no place in national security strategy

_________________________________________________________________________
Fla. Congressman West: Multiculturalism Leads to Political Correctness | On the Record

February 14, 2011

RETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Florida freshman congressman brings down the house at CPAC with his rousing speech. He probably gave many people in the crowd aching feet because they were standing, they were shouting and cheering for him while he closed out the three-day event. Florida congressman Allen West joins us. Good evening, sir.

WEST: Good evening.

VAN SUSTEREN: Boy, you...

WEST: Good to be here.

VAN SUSTEREN: You brought down the house at CPAC.

WEST: Well, we did a little something. I think that was that buzzer that I had in the seats that I kept popping and...

VAN SUSTEREN: The electric one.

WEST: Yes, the electric one, yes.

VAN SUSTEREN: OK, in the speech (INAUDIBLE) sound we just (INAUDIBLE) you talked about defending definitive American culture against "multiculturalism on steroids." And it's about the same time that Prime Minister Cameron in London was saying essentially the same thing in Germany. What do you mean?

WEST: Well, I think it's important that we recognize that there's an American culture. I mean, there's an opening to everyone to come here to this great land. But we want them to be a part of who we are, not trying to make American culture play second fiddle to them, which I think is what you're seeing in London, in Germany, and France and several other places. So that's critical to the sustainment of this American society.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, you also got a standing ovation when you said political correctness has no place in our national security strategy. Are you suggesting that multiculturalism is political correctness? And correct me if I'm wrong. And if that is...

WEST: It leads to it. It does lead to it because I think that we are so afraid of, quote, unquote, "offending" people. So you look at the national strategy. It says nothing about Islamic terrorism, nothing about jihadism, Muslim extremism. All of a sudden, we're calling combat operations "overseas contingency operations." Terrorist attacks are now "man-caused disasters." So I think that when you have leadership that is very afraid of saying that you do have a definitive enemy, that you don't want to offend people, then you kind of lead yourself down a rosy path.
