Allen West Opponent Lobbies Democrats to Register as Republicans

By Javier Manjarres

Republican Congressional candidate Robert Crowder, who is challenging Congressman Allen West in this year’s  Republican primary election, was caught asking attendees of the Martin County NAACP forum to register to vote Republican.

Crowder’s “Operation Chaos” type tactic is sign of desperation by the ‘more-than-likely-to-lose’ Democrat-lite Sheriff from Martin County.

Earlier this year, The Shark Tank first suggested that Crowder was a Democrat plant, that was thrown into the race in an attempt to muddy up the waters against West, and now it seems that our suspicions are confirmed.  Remember, Crowder endorsed Democrat Alex Sink over now Republican Governor Rick Scott in the highly contentious 2010 Gubernatorial race.

 It’s fair to speculate- is Sheriff Crowder a Democrat plant in the Republican field that is being positioned to ultimately help Patrick Murphy, West’s likely general election opponent?   While it’s isn’t concrete proof- yet- that Crowder’s candidacy is an orchestrated move against Congressman West, if there was some intra-party “encouragement” for him to run, you can bet that DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz likely had a hand in it.

 Crowder has struck a ‘compromise’ with West’s Democrat challenger Patrick Murphy and Democrat Jim Horn and agreed to “compromise” in order “to get Congress back on track.”  Patrick Murphy left his contested primary race in Congressional District 22 to follow West up to the 18th Congressional District.

 Here is what Crowder told the room of Democrats-

 “Although I love my Republicans, the ones who are going to make the difference this election are the Democrats,” Crowder said. “Because you could be a Democrat, and become a Republican in the primary, and still vote for your Democrats in the general election.”- Sheriff Robert Crowder

    Actually, West’s dem opponent would vote more conservatively.

    • Linda

      That is a democrat lie! Typical!

    • Patriot

      Democrap plant? You have no idea EXACTLY how conservative Congressman (Lt. Col. Ret,) Allan West is!

  • johno

    The Dem knows he has no chance to defeat West honestly, so he’s resorting to the Dems’ usual tactic of dirty tricks.

    • Kim Burns

      Since there isn’t a “like” button for your comment, I thought I would say, “I agree. It is an old Democrat trick that more Republicans should utilize.” In Florida, specifically. Register Democrat and help influence who your real chosen candidate runs against.
      Love and war are not the only things Democrats consider all is fair in. We should be using their tricks against them.

        Very bad idea thats how the establishment hacks got Charlie Crist in

      • Dale Ann Oakley

        Then we become like our opponents.

  • john pistorino

    I have lost faith that members of the democratic party really are for america. They seem like socialists and dirty tricks like this switch and bait is what brought in people like Castro and Chavez. West is a good man and loves his country more than any political party.

    • No Slack Jack

      You are right! The Democrat Party has been taken over by special interest groups and the party as a whole hides behind the name of Progressives and Liberals, when in fact…they are Marxists and Socialists. The latter two words still carry a very loaded message, but that’s quite right, they are deadly and loaded for a purpose. There has always been a leftist swing to the organized labor of our nation, as my father and I had both been in unions, and we know of what we speak. The Demonkrat Party is deeply embedded by perverts of many kinds, not the least of which are the humanists, who have invaded our schools and both parties, with the central idea that human intellect and will will override any…any form of God inspired government and laws. And by doing so, they will tear down all the values which have formed this nation. All West has been correct to state that many Demonkrats are members of the Communist Party and Socialist Democrat organizations.

  • Whats_Up

    This is NO surprise. Progressives and Socialists have been infiltrating the GOP for a good 50 years – be it as candidates or staffers. Hopefully, there is more of “We the People” who stand for the US Constitution and limited government than those who depend on the gov’t. GO get ’em, Allen West !!!

    OT: Constitutional Patriot Marielena Stuart for US Senate.

    In other news: President NObama played his 100th game of golf over the weekend. Ironic, Axelrod scolded Bush for playing golf, stating how “Out of Touch Bush was”. Hmm, Bush played 24 rounds in 8 years; NObama – 100 in under 4 years.

    Folks, aren’t these the kinds of things that Karl Rove has been using against the Democrats for years??
    Is it now wrong when used against the republicans?
    Just a little dose of your own medicine, eh?

    • GenEarly

      Comrade Rich, Unlike you we know there is only one political party of Elected Elites.Carl Rove is a NWO operative from the Bush Syndicate.

      Allen West just may be a Patriot. I’m willing to give him the lead and see what he can accomplish.

      PS: As an example of Elitist co-operation, Marco Rubio just teamed up with the RINO darlings of McCain,Graham,Snowe,Collins,Lugar,Brown, and turncoat Ayotte along with the Dimicat Senate majority to confirm a pro-Castro Leftist as ambassador to El Salvador. This against the wishes of the government and people of El Salvador.

  • Mimi

    Good Luck Allen West, Senator – Florida. Truth always prevails over lies, and deceptive people. Don’t be faint of heart – we have your back. Loved your previous interview with S.E. – we replay it for inspiration.

  • Perseids

    I for one would be very interested in what the RPOF has to say, if anything, about this treachery. At the very least they could be offered the opportunity to deny any prior knowledge or collusion. Everyone knows they are as pure as the driven snow.
    Perhaps Mr. Manjarres could make inquiries?

  • Randy

    We pray Allen West prevails — both in the primary and in the general election!! In order for that to occur, truth must prevail — and what is morally right. We need Allen West in Congress to defend our nation and its Constitution against the inroads of the Progressives, who are redefining the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our Founding Fathers saw that it would take an intelligent, informed, and moral populace — active in voting for what is right and logical — to preserve America as a free and prosperous nation. Go West — VOTE for WEST — everyone!!!

  • JacquelineL

    Let us be clear. White or Back, Male or Female, new voter or senior citizen. WE SUPPORT ALLEN WEST NOT BECAUSE OF HIS PARTY BUT BECAUSE HE IS A MAN WORTH KNOWING AND SUPPORTING!
    It does not surprise anyone that a Democrat from a party known for voter FRAUD would advocate the wholesale lying being encouraged here.

  • Stone

    In Martin County, Florida you can’t be sheriff unless you are a Republican. Crowder is a Democrat Party “trojan horse” masquerading as a Republican.

    In Martin County you support the Democrat Party by voting for a Republican like Crowder and his side kick William Snyder.

    Allen West will mop the floor with Crowder.

    More about Crowder & Snyder at disbarthefloridabar interview #35.

    Interesting tie in to Crowder & Snyder and allegedly Alex Sink’s husband, William McBride and a $9 million payment made directly to a Mark Sapperstein as part of a $325 million Pinnacle Towers IPO.

  • Rusty

    Crowder who? Isn’t he the anti Scott guy working for the Marin Future PAC? I thought he was a democrat.

  • Trisha

    The guy is not only admitting but INSTRUCTING people HOW to de-FRAUD the elections…
    IF our LAWS were ENFORCED,we could put a stop to all this anti-American behavior,INCLUDING getting that OCCUPIER out of the White House!!

  • OldmanRick

    Definitely get out the vote for Col Allen West. Make it so Florida.

    If it’s political, you know that it’s a big deal. Or not? There are many sides to a story and CNN has had a vocal visitor on the network, saying the one with the most money will win.
