Florida Republican Rep. Allen West‘s Democratic opponent, Patrick Murphy, launched a campaign platform on Friday which intends to showcase West’s most potentially damaging remarks in the hopes of taking back his seat for Democrats in the fall.
WhatWestSaid.com compiles all of West’s most controversial remarks for constituents of his central Florida district. The site features a large image of West’s smiling face attached to a quote bubble, complete with “next quote” and “last quote” buttons for users to scroll through the site’s collection of comments made by West. The statements are randomly generated and go all the way back to 2010 — giving site visitors a wide array of examples to illustrate how divisive West can be.
West’s most recent comment on the site was made on July 8 in which he claimed that “Social Security disability…is a form of modern, 21st century slavery.” Some other controversial statements include West saying “anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool” in July of 2011 and West’s July 2010 insistence that Liberals “seek to destroy institutions of any intrinsic value.”
The site includes a button at the top asking for contributions to Murphy’s campaign. Whether users do contribute or not, they can at least have fun reliving their favorite Allen West moments from past and present.
