Rep. Allen West Agrees With Joe The Plumber: Blame Gun Control For The Holocaust
West came up with this in 2010:
“In 1930, there was a gentleman in Germany who took away private gun ownership and you know what happened to that population,” West says in the video. “You must be well informed and well armed, because this government we have right now is a tyrannical government.”
The statement echoes what Samuel Wurzelbacher (a.k.a. Joe the Plumber) said this week in a campaign video.
It actually goes beyond what Joey Plumber said. West went further in equating Hitler’s Germany with the American government.
