Aside from being just plain crazy, Republican Rep. Allen West (FL-18) has a real problem with the ladies. His Democratic opponent, Patrick Murphy, is hitting him hard with a new ad to remind voters of West's opposition to basic health care for women. But the best part of the ad is this West quote from 2011 that you might have missed because, well, it's hard to keep track of the non-stop filth West spews:

And all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness. Let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.
Yep. That's what's wrong with America—all the women out there who have forced men subservience. If only women would remember their place. Thank god they have West around to instruct them on how to be a lady. (Hint: Don't criticize Allen West. It's very unladylike.)

West, of course, doesn't think he has a problem with women:

I've been married for 22 years, I have two daughters.
Goal Thermometer

So there. And if you dare to say otherwise, well, that's "the thing that really most aggravates" him:

But yet when all of a sudden you stand up and you say that you will not tolerate this anymore, then they claim to be a victim -- which I find just absolutely laughable.
Yes, West thinks it's "laughable" when other people claim to be victims. Other people who have neutered the men of America into subservience.

So let's aggravate the hell out of Allen West. Please give $3 to Patrick Murphy to send an advocate for women to Congress and "neuter" Allen West right out of office.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
