Allen West Honors a Hero

On Thursday night Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff appeared at the annual ACT! For America gala banquet at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C. Her function at the occasion was to present the first annual “Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff Profiles in Courage Award” to Lt. Col. Allen West. After Col. West received his award, he told the audience that he didn’t deserve it. He presented it in turn to a young woman named Julie, a Pakistani Christian who had acid thrown all over her body by Muslims. She is now an American living in Texas, and is studying to be an accountant. She had spoken previously at the event.

This moving moment was caught on video. The sound in the clip below is somewhat unclear at the beginning, but settles down after Col. West begins speaking into the microphone. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for processing and uploading this video:

  2. The following is all true.

    Over 47 years ago, when i was 18, my commanding officer Fl Lt Shadbolt spoke briefly to my mother and told her , in his opinion, I was a born leader.

    Just now, it was my privilege to see , hear and recognise another and if Americans care for their future, they would elect him as POTUS in a heartbeat.

    In todays UK ,Lt Col West would be smeared as another “hate speech” islamophobe.

    That man is a credit to himself, his country, his race and his parents and a most generous benifactor to that brave and distinguished young lady, congratulations and very best wishes to them both.

  3. Alan West is a great man. If the Republican party had any sense left whatsoever, they would run him or Ted Cruz in 2016 and take home a victory. But instead they’ll just send some idiot oligarch who’ll lose in a landslide and continue the Democrat annihilation of America. Sad.
