Fox News signs Allen West as contributor

by George Bennett | May 17th, 2013

The real Allen West, left, with a lifesize likeness of himself promoting his online TV show at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference.

Fox News Channel has signed former U.S. Rep. Allen West as a contributor.

The conservative firebrand often appeared on Fox programs during his single term in the House and chose Fox as the venue when he conceded his narrow loss to Democrat Patrick Murphy in November.

“Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the Fox News lineup,” said a statement from Bill Shine, the executive vice president of programming for Fox News.

In addition to his Fox duties, West will continue to be director of Next Generation TV programming for conservative PJ Media, where he hosts a subscription-only online TV show.

    Fantastic news!

    Allen West is the only politico with the guts and other necessary body parts to call out the ‘Progressive Caucus’ for being Marxist? First six organizational objectives mirror Uncle Karl’s precepts verbatim!

    Now, we get to hear honest opinion that BARAMA ordered every IRS, DOJ, HHS, ICE, EPA, Energy, etc. HIT as just more of his vaunted ‘ground game’. Nothing happens by accident when you serve at the pleasure / leisure / sleaze of the Pretender in Chief!

    Bill O’Reilly might be the last to admit it of any major talking head…
    … so intent on protecting ‘us’ he forgot we existed?

  2. Searcher1 Says:

    Someone get Obiwan a beer, STAT!

  3. GOP = Lousy Values Says:

    Yeah, and now we will get to listen to his divisive inflammatory rhetoric which serves no useful purpose but fits right in with the misinformation and outright lies made famous by faux news! Lots of B.S. which the right wing thrives on but which in actuality, accomplishes absolutely nothing! At least West won’t be on the public dole which is where he has spent all of his working life. What a looser. Kicked out of the military for bad conduct, among other things, couldn’t cut it as a public school teacher and couldn’t get re-elected in a predominately GOP district after one term. Yeah, West will fit right in at faux news! LOL!

  4. kelly Says:

    Palin without the t#ts.

  5. Jupiter Guy Says:

    So he gets to spread his woman hating views on national television on a regular basis.


    Asshole working for Assholes, Nice !!

  7. Carol Says:

    As a husband and father of three daughters (one of whom is adopted), it’s difficult to imagine that West ‘hates women’. Fact is there is no place in today’s Democrat party for a conservative black man. Tim Scott, appointed by Nikki Haley, Gov. of S. Carolina, is the only black man to ever reach the Democrat-dominated U. S. Senate, and that’s because he was appointed to fill out Jim DeMint’s term. He would never have been elected as a black conservative Republican. Sad but that’s the way it is. To be acceptable by the Democrat party, a black must be left-wing liberal and, above all, march to the Democrat’s political ideology….do not for a moment deviate from it or they will destroy you, as they tried to do to West.

  8. Michael Says:

    It’s hard to believe that some one could further lessen Fox News’ credibility, but they keep lowering the standards.

  9. Neils60 Says:

    It’s puzzling why those who make negative comments regarding Fox News, there’s no mention of left wing Fox News contributors like Jesse Jackson’s daughter, Kirsten Powers, Simon Rosenberg, Dennis Kucinich, etc.? How come?

  10. Brian O'Donaghey Says:

    Which one in the photo has more honor and integrity? The cardboard cutout on the right gets my vote. At least it’s peers in the Army didn’t cast it out.

  11. drippinhun Says:


    That’s the biggest bunch of nonsense I’ve read today. Unlike a Fox talking point that all their reporter and GOP congressmen parrot, there is a diversity of opinions on the “liberal” side. For instance, me. I’m for radically curtailed immigration, for harsh punishment for crimes of violence and property and for a balanced budget. However, I’m also for socialized health care (something that Obamacare is nowhere near being) and abortion being a woman’s choice. So get off your high-horse about liberals walking goosestep with each other. That’s a trait of Republicans. Just look at the voting records.

  12. Money Police Says:

    The Socialists are out in full force! Run to your Daddy Obama. He will give you everything. LOL!

  13. Van Jones & Susan Rice & Wm Ayres &... Says:

    Juan Williams
    Carl Rove
    Alan Colmes
    Allen West

    This little mix I keyed in here shows very clearly how FOX gets all points of view out there as best as they can.
    Unlike MSNBC or CBS… among others.
    It sure seems like Allen West’s perspective scares the bejesus out of some.

  14. mike Says:

    Does anyone still watch fox news? I thought that they had been canceled.

  15. Mattrue Says:

    The reason conservatives are a minority vote is the fact that conservative doctrine has no place in a Democracy. Allen West spent 4 times the money on his campaign and got his votes counted two three times at the tax payers cost. That conservative value crap is nothing more than vote for me if your super rich party. Did you know where conservatism started, yes in England where they were eventually forced out for their non-productive views. In most of the countries that conservative values in politics had been used, to much of a separation of class wealth caused dis-functional societies and led to the conservatism collapse. The conservatism movement made it much easier for socialism to prevail. So in fact, if this country continues allowing conservative movements the past models show you are inviting socialism. Actually, socialism more closely parallels Democracy and conservative views more closely resembles Marxism or communism. In both the dictator type models only the ultra rich are considered to be in with the governing rulers. Conservatism is more likely to bring forth more socialism, or things focused for the people and not the rich.

  16. Viktoria Says:

    Well, I don’t watch Fox News much anyways, this seals the deal that I will never watch it if they signed that babbling, big baby who is a disgrace to South Florida… even his own race doesn’t claim him? Never heard such a whining moron who refused to concede… Puke.

  17. mike Says:

    Mattrue, just to prove you are an idiot, America is a REPUBLIC, you are thginking of your other country,ussr,cuba, etc.

  18. keepinitrealnomatterwhat Says:

    @Mattrue Says…Well said!!! @Viktoria Says… You are absolutely right in your comment that he is not claimed or accepted by his own race. If you will notice the picture for the article, you’ll see a very definitive difference in skin tone of the two idiots standing there. LMAO!!! This lets me know that the world knows exactly who has their hand up his butt like a puppet telling him exactly what to say and do.

  19. One of the 47% Says:

    I wouldn’t know who is on that channel if it wasn’t for a newspaper blurb like this now and then. That channel was removed from my lineup via the preferences menu. Along with other nonsense like the shopping channel, etc.

    I prefer to think for myself – not have some wingnut group spoon-feed me talking points.

  20. Neils60 Says:

    Viktoria, Your remark that members of West’s own race don’t accept him make you sound like a true “progressive”, whose trademark is an emphasis on race/religion. The fact that the Revs. Jackson and Sharpton, for example, reject his message is a real plus, as far as I’m concerned.

  21. DY Says:

    war criminal

  22. Bito Says:

    @Kepping it real, You are right about the picture, It is more white than he actually is, I wonder if anybody else noticed it?

  23. Bito Says:

    By the way, Didn`t MIT THE TWIT did the same thing by looking darker on a spanish network to be more appealing to hispanics? Well, It didn`t work.

  24. greg Says:

    @mike….there is no u.s.s.r. and if you’re going to show people they are wrong, check your spelling and geography….it really affects your credibility……

  25. Viktoria Says:

    @Neils60 – personally I could care less what race West is. I live in WPB and found it interesting that when he was at the courthouse trying everything he could to get recounts, a lot of those opposers who came down from Port St. Lucie were black themselves. Too bad he didn’t go on to Georgia when they showed interest in him after he FINALLY conceded to Murphy.

  26. Ted the Nimble Says:

    Why doesn’t your transparent president show what he was doing the night our embassy was being attacked/ambassador killed from those angry Muslim movie viewers?

    Barak sure is angry his IRS targeted his political opponents!

    That pesky Fox News. Only ABC, NBC and CBS would dare to report in depth on those very minor and silly infractions.

  27. throbo Says:

    Looks like the Republicans were able to get West from running in our district again.

  28. Name required Says:

    West and Karl Rove will be teaming up to predict election outcomes. Did the fairly imbalanced nutwork get any outcome correct last year?

    FNC = Circus
    Republicans = Clowns
    Allen West = Trained Seal

  29. charles Says:

    $$$ always paves the way for the crazies on Fox News. RIght along with the “quitter Palin” it’s all about money when it comes to Republicans, hide your money overseas and don’t pay your taxes—so typical!!

  30. Kurt Says:

    Allen is a great communicator and is very passionate as well as very fair. Allen’s military insight should prove to be an asset.

  31. Hank Shae Says:

    He has so much more credibility than the MSNBC token black…..A war hero versus a Tawana Brawley lying crook who makes anti-semitic remarks..of course no one but idiots watch MSNBC anyway..,,lasyt I checked they were way behind the screamin Nancy Grace group of hysterical women..

  32. Tom Says:

    Another good reason to avoid Fox.

  33. Mattrue Says:

    Fox news should rethink that position. I would like to see Allen in the Nascar sport talk section. Yeh, I think he would be good at that, because he was a lousy one term do nothing conservative politician. Oh, I forgot, they are all that way, my bad.

  34. Kurt Says:

    So happens Fox is the most watched of all cable news and has taken the network alphabet channels and over ran their rating also. Fox is king of the news so get use to it. NY times CNN, MSNBC all in extreme decline as their rating dwindle into oblivion and invertors are running from the leaking cash with no returns. Unlike NPR and PubTV FOX doesn’t need Obama infusion it is extremely strong on ad dollars in a competitive market.

  35. Hank Shae Says:

    Hey Kurt..You are confusing these NYC liberal brainwashed transplants with facts…pleae stop it..

  36. Hank Shae Says:

  37. WEST is a LIAR! Says:

    Anyone who watches faux news is either terribly misinformed or just plain stupid! Faux news is all about the lies and wouldn’t tell the truth about anything no matter what. Faux is nothing but the propaganda arm of the GOP and follows the GOP agenda to the letter. West, as a consummate liar will fit right in. Faux news, all B.S., all the time! Not fair or balanced!

  38. Neils60 Says:

    to “WEST is a LIAR! Says: Interesting commentary. Perhaps you didn’t view Phil Griffin’s interview in the Atlantic Online”, about a month ago. Mr. Griffin, MSNBC’s head guy, stated that if he could hire anyone he wished, it would be the Fox News Channel’s Shepard Smith. Read it and weep!!!

  39. keepinitrealnomatterwhat Says:

    @Ted The Nimble… OUR PRESIDENT, MINE and YOURS was no doubt dealing with matters of national security that we as the public at large will never, and SHOULD never hear about. If we were to become as transparent as the far right are consistantly screaming about, every terrorist on the planet would know exactly how the U.S. government protects its citizens. As a military veteran I learned a long time ago that every thing is not to be heard by all ears.

  40. Hank Shae Says:

    Ted the Nimble…you don’t appear to have anything between your ears anyway so what you say is of little consequence. If Bush did what Obama did..we would hear the critics for years to come.
