In the wake of the murders in Arizona, newly elected Republican Rep. Allen West says he has no plans to tone down his “stronger language.”
“Now that I’ve been sworn into Congress I’m still the type of person that if there are means by which I can inspire people I will use historical references and metaphors, which I have done. My background is I am a tough guy, and in tough times you have to use a little bit stronger language when you start talking about the future legacy of my country.
“Look, I am not anyone that anyone should be concerned about. I’m just an everyday guy,”
