Allen West: ‘We have domestic radical Islamic terror problem in America’

Former Florida Rep. Allen West issued a harsh attack on political correctness Friday, as authorities continued to pursue second Boston attack suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

“Let me be very clear, the terrorist attack in Boston and evolving events indicate we have a domestic radical Islamic terror problem in America,” the Republican wrote on his Facebook page.

According to the former congressman, America must reject “political correctness” and advocacy groups like the Council on American–Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Muslim American Society, which he linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We must no longer allow the disciples of political correctness and the acolytes of the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MAS) to preach to us some misconceived definition of tolerance and subservience,” he wrote. “When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide.”

West cited recent Muslim terrorists such as Carlos Bledsoe, Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Dix Six, and Faisal Shahzad as examples.

“When Rep. Peter King attempted to have hearings on domestic terrorism he was attacked for being racist,” West continued. “No more excuses. No more apologies. We are in a war of ideological wills, and we shall prevail.”

He concluded by offering congratulations to law enforcement.
