Did we do this?

Not an Allen West fan anymore but this is where we are.


The Committee to Support and Defend is hosting a Memorial Day weekend event where retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West is scheduled to speak.

The event is scheduled for May 28 at Sendero Shooting Sports, a gun range in Belton, Texas.

According to American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU), where Lt. Col. Allen West now serves as executive director, the event has been removed from the Eventbrite website, where people registered to attend the event.

It is not clear if a reason was given by Eventbrite for the removal of the event page. The ACRU alleges that Eventbrite removed the event because it is being held at a gun range, where a pistol and ammunition will be raffled.

West would be an improvement from the current regime of LaPierre and his band of cronies, who treat the dues from members as their own piggybank to spend, instead of using their own money.

But doubtful West can parachute in and get elected, as he left the board a few years ago, and so hasn't put in the work needed to build up a group of like-minded board members.  This seems to be a re-occuring theme for West - parachute into a job or try to (GOP head for Texas, Governor, NRA head) without having done the hard work to either get into that job, or do a good one while there (GOP head).
