PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Former U.S. Congressman and current Fox News contributor Allen West (R-Fl.) today announced that he has decided to “leave the United States and find a new, more pro-American home somewhere else.” West’s plan is apparently motivated by a Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad, which featured “America the Beautiful” sung in several languages other than English—a display that West calls “shocking and borderline treasonous.”
“I about fainted when I saw that commercial,” West wrote on his blog. “If we cannot be proud enough as a country to sing ‘American the Beautiful’ in English in a commercial during the Super Bowl, by a company as American as they come — doggone we are on the road to perdition. This was a truly disturbing commercial for me—sort of like watching 9/11 happen all over again.
West—who served only one term in the House of Representatives before being defeated by a Democrat—said that as soon as the “words went from English to languages [he] didn’t recognize,” he knew he could no longer live in a country that “seems to intent on destroying American values.”
“If we can’t sing ‘America the Beautiful’ in the American tongue, it’s not really America anymore, and I simply need to find a place that’s more American than here,” West declared, adding, “I really like America.”
West is not the only conservative expressing outrage over the commercial. Todd Starnes, another Fox contributor, offered his opinion of the ad by tweeting that “Coca-Cola is the official soft drink of illegals crossing the border.” Starnes has not yet announced plans to leave the United States, but did say that he “hasn’t ruled out suicide as a protest against this America-hating commercial.”
Coca-Cola’s Facebook page was also inundated with comments from conservatives outraged over the multilingual rendition of “the National Anthem,” with many pledging to boycott Coke products or flee the country like West.
Asked on Monday where he plans to go, West said that he hasn’t decided yet. “Seems to me, there are plenty of places where people still live by American principles,” West explained. “Like, for instance, Australia. You don’t see people singing the National Anthem in Swahili or whatever-the-hell down there, do you? Nope, it’s all English all the time—and I hear their beaches are great.”
If anyone should know treason it’s Allen West. A man that disobeyed a direct order by his president in a time of war is an act of treason in this country. He also tortured a detainee at Gitmo by, among other things, firing his sidearm next to the ear of said detainee causing deafness. It should be noted that said detainee had not been charged with any crime. Now onto the stupidity of his comment. He plans to move to either Canada or Mexico? Yes, they are still considered American but they don’t have the same national anthem as the United States. So if he’s upset by folks of all languages singing our national anthem, instead of commending them for national pride he plans to move out. Very well, then may I suggest he kiss my American ass on the way out and may I also suggest he consider Somalia as his next homeland?
Allen West never said that “America the Beautiful” was our national anthem, you morons. You obviously have no idea what is happening to America or you wouldn’t be posting your ignorant comments. Allen West has more knowledge and common sense than the lot of you combined. Educate yourselves and stop parroting back the lies you’re being fed before it’s too late.
Well first off, America The Beautiful is not the National Anthem. Have a good time in Australia and as a parting gift, please take Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh with you.
Both West and Limbaugh have said they will move,, that will be a nice day. But who will want them
As a German, just a comment on that: This sis what disturbed me most: He said “This was a truly disturbing commercial for me—sort of like watching 9/11 happen all over again. ” – That means that he was shocked by the deaths of several thousend innocent people as much as by a song whose performance in the comercial for a soft drink he did not like…. Honestly, people? someone like that can be elected into your parliament???? Just asking…
So now Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent and now this idiot are going to leave this country because they didn’t get their little fascist dream wish. But none of them will ever leave because no one else will put up with their incessant whining. Bwah, ha ha ha ha.
Guess what, we are a nation of immigrants. Wouldn’t it seem that various languages could logically sing the National anthem in different languages?
I am proud to know that people love this country enough to sing it in their own language!! You are an idiot!! LEAVE already!
So he wants to “leave the United States and find a new, more pro-American home somewhere else.” Yeah ok smart guy….let me know how that works out for you…….
What an idiot. How much more pro America can you get when people all around the world are showing their respect and support for a country they probably don’t even live in
Hey, West, Australia has socialised medicaine.
don’t let the door hit you in the backside on your way out!
What an ass hat! Wants to go to another country that’s more “pro American”….than America? Like Australia? Really? WTF is he just that stupid? I hope he DOES leave. We’ll be better off without him!
Pepsi supports Gay marriage, so go drink some Shasta don you ignorant bigot…..
how ignorant can this moron be, let’s start with the fact that America the beautiful is not the national anthem … Australia, huh? good luck getting a visa there!
Look in the mirror, idiot. Your family came from somewhere else, too. Bye!
So is he expecting MORE American sentiment living outside the US? Good luck with that. We won’t miss you.
Bye Bye, you asshole. The country will not miss you. Oh, and by the way, this beautiful, patriotic song was written by a lesbian. That means you should have left years ago.
yay for Coke
Y’al do realize that Newlo is satire, right
What an Asshole, take the other losers who are so angry about a beautiful ad with you. Coke is always about peace and joining nations together. Remember the Teach the World to sing commercial back in the 70s.
I cannot belive the things that cause an uproar in this country. Yet people are starving and shooting each other nobody says a F#*#ing word.
Let’s not be one of those republicans that just like to bitch, to bitch! Let’s see some action! I’m sure there are those who will help you pack!! Get out, asswhole!!
Allen West is correct!! Veterans fought and died for this country. Go to another country and sing one of their country song’s in 10 different languages, and see if you come away with your life. They would freakin kill you! Allen West is a GREAT Patriot!!!
Will the last raving fanatic leaving the United States please turn the channel to MSNBC?
goodbye and good riddance
And just what is “the American tongue?” I was under the distinct impression that America has no official “tongue!” Rem ember when it was considered a source of American pride that, unlike any other country in the world, we celebrated our cultural diversity by accepting people from all walks of life…we were proudly known as “The Great Melting Pot” of different cultures! I guess some people are small-minded, rigid, and frightened enough to be myopically-challenged so that they can only see and accept a very small compartmentalized portion of what they would like to believe their “vision” of what America should be. This is one of m any reasons why Allen West no longer serves in Congress–because he represents only what is wrong with America, and it is certainly NOT “We, The People!”
If I may interject: just WHERE does Allen West think he’s going ? With his unsavory background, being drummed out of the US Military to avoid prosecution for TORTURING prisoners, Allen West is an UNDESIRABLE. – – By the way, today is Wednesday and Allen West is still here; talk about undependable !
How stupid can someone be. We speak English. But here in America we borrowed most of our language from native Americans, and other countries. Anyone that has ever opened a dictionary would know this, it gives you the etymology of the word. And how can anyone be mad that people of other cultures are celebrating with us during the super bowl. Not everyone that lives here speaks English and other nationalities play in the NFL. Stop complaining you bigoted uncle Tom
He’ll have to find an English speaking country since i’m sure his stupid ass doesn’t know any other languages and i doubt he’ll like being treated the way he treats immigrants here. Just like all the other UGLY Americans, they think the world should cater to them.
The National Anthem IS NOT America the Beautiful! You wore the damn uniform West – did you EVER stand at attention at 5pm on base for the National Anthem and hear America the Beautful? IDIOT!
Bye! Leaves more for me. And you ought to know what the National Anthem is before you get so agitated.
50 years ago, you would have had to enter in the back door of Fox! Take your whole family with you. Leave no remnants of you! Uncle Tom.
Keep playing the ad, Coca Cola! May be more crazies will leave!
“american tongue” is you want to be real is native american language, not english.
Please–He forgot that we were founded on all of us came from a foreign country(ancester) that is!
The GOP is batshit crazy.
We MUST vote them all out to save our country!!
what a buffoon
Mr. West…. did you know Australia’s Prime Minister is not only a woman but she’s also an atheist. Our minimum wage is $7.25 and theirs is $16.88. The 35-year-old universal health care system is a hybrid of public and private plans. Every permanent resident or citizen in Australia — that’s everyone, regardless of age — is covered by the government’s Medicare program and is entitled to highly-subsidized, or even free, treatment by doctors in their offices, and fully-covered treatment and care in public hospitals.
Are you sure you’ll fit in there? Maybe you can go show them all the ways they are doing things wrong.
US national anthem
“The Star-Spangled Banner” is the national anthem of the United States. The lyrics come from “Defence of Fort McHenry”, a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in …
America the Beautiful is not the National Anthem!
America the Beautiful is a popular, patriotic song – but it is not the national anthem. Wonder if there is anyplace better than America for Americans? Good luck with that, West. And what makes you think another country will take you?
Alright morons, see the button’s that say: “Hide facts” and “Show facts”…well, they show or hide what’s factual in the article. This news site is a hybrid of fact/satire. Now, if you hit “Show facts” you’ll realize that you’re all retarded.
There is a lot of faux outrage being parroted as patriotism. If you love this country, you threaten to leave or celebrate Vladamir Putin as a great man, you endure. You strive to make it better. You don’t hear the national Anthem when another sings it because your own voice should be ringing in your ears. Never have we had so many people talking about being patriots while not knowing the word’s definition.
Some people are so short sighted on history. The “American Language” … well we borrowed that from England. The US Congress almost voted to have German be the Language of the USA. The American Language was initially a confluence of many Native American Languages. I guess they forgot to teach history where Alan West went to school.
When did he become a Native American? Have fun finding another ‘merica.
Um…the last I knew, The Star Spangled Banner was our National Anthem.
Can I drive you to the airport? West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale or Miami…your choice.
Bye bye… I am sure you’ll be happier somewhere else honey. So will we
Ahhhhhhahaha HOW fitting Canada got rid of Cruz and NOW we can get rid of this asswipe Allen West!!!!
Sing in the American tongue? Cherokee or Seminole?
America the Beautiful is NOT our national anthem.
We can only hope other conservatives take his lead and follow.
READ the blog! He DID NOT say that!
I’ll give you a few bucks , leave, now.
Please DO leave!
Coke 1 Morons 0
I’m pretty sure that his people didn’t originate here any more than mind did. An American, by definition, is anyone that is born here. That is the only prerequisite that exists.
IF YOU GO, HOPEFULLY THEY WILL FOLLOW!!!!!
LMAO, No wonder the closed minded republican only served one term!
LEAVE, and take all your stupid, closed-minded, suppressive counter parts with you and do what the hell you want!!!
FREE AMERICA FROM YOUR IGNORANCE!!!!!
This guy is an embarrassment to his nation and to his people. He obviously doesn’t know the diverse history of America. The commercial represents diversity, unity and pride being an American from all ethnicities that makes this country once great. He also failed to recognize we’re a melting pot cultural society and New York is the spoon of that pot. I hope West and the rest of his conservatives friends realize how imbecile, immature, ignorant, and Un-American they really sound.
Rush said he was going to Costa Rica & is still here, Ted Nugent said he would be dead or jailed if Obama won again, still neither happened. This blow hard sycophant of the GOP needs to leave if he is such a un-American hate filled jerk.
I agree with him. Pretty soon you’ll be selecting option 5 for English. Inexcusable. Country has gone to the crap hole. Muslims,, illegals,, just do away with English,, isn’t needed anymore.
First off, it was ‘America The Beautiful’, NOT The National Anthem. Mr. AFRICAN needs to just pack his ignant ass and go back to wherever his people came from. What an idiot.
This is another satirical “news” page like the Onion, right? This just doesn’t sound real. I don’t like the guy, but I can’t believe he’s that stupid. And the other guy wants to kill himself over the commercial?? Come on, ‘fess u!
Yeah well atleast those Americans who sang in their native…still have their native tongue….ummmm Mista Black man…we were stripped naked of our culture…the assimilation has begun!
Who cares if he takes another boat ride to some place else. Not every one the world likes is color…..
Newslo is SATIRE folks… but unfortunately there are people living among us who think real Americans have to be white and speak only English, and trailer parks all across the country are infested with them.
America/USA is a melting pot of many races and languages. Does that clear it up? This guy’s ignorance bliss. Cut your passport up and surrender citizenship please.
I have never heard of the “American tongue” what is it and where is it spoken, what an IDIOT. shit for brains, what a sorry human being.
The idiot in the story should go to Somalia. There he won’t have to worry about Obamacare, socialized medicine, gun control, or religion NOT running the country. Have a nice trip!!!
Good riddance hypocrite…you are a large part of what is wrong with America today. Good luck finding a new one!
Does anyone think that Ann Coulter and Sarah Palen are love children of Allen West and Michelle Bachmann other than me? Maybe Rush will go with him…we can only hope.
Enjoy the super-strict gun laws in Australia bud. Someone smells like a Fascist.
I hope he takes, as many of his friends as possible, along with him.
Ahh shuckie duckie! Let’s put on a parade, line them up, and see them off! Limbaugh, this parade is for you too!
Hope they don’t decide to come back, that would be disastrous to our country!
It was America the Beautiful not the national anthem!! Really dude, just go
Allen West..don’t go….We need you to maybe run against Jeremy Hillary boob Phd. in 2016.
Let me see, hates taxes , hates big government…….. Try Somolia
Go ahead, move to Australia, they don’t care for blacks down there much, you stupid bastard.
People, it’s a satire piece. It’s fake. Unfortunately, we’re stuck with this war criminal.
I will buy you a ticket, you pathetic, half-wit (and I am sorry if I insulted any half-wits)!
dont think the aussies are to keen to rascists in australia
What an idiot, racist bigot. I’ll chip in for airfare. Don’t come back!
Goodbye Allen, not many will miss you!
Allen West is proof you don’t have to be white to be a dumb white guy.
Ass-in-the-West strikes again!
Knuclkehead. Pure knucklehead.
To bad, he will be missed, we do like a good clown and buffoon.
Soda rots your teeth. We should phase out soda pop culture.
Hello. This is a SATIRE news blog.
I will drive him to the airport.
The sooner the better.
Oh ….. darn.
All I can say to that is awesome! The US has enough ignorant bigots as it is. Happy travels, Allen!
So… this guy that lives in the US want to leave the country because the anthem was sung in different languages in a sport event via a Coca Cola Ad, because it is Unamerican… Well, he can consider several facts, for example, he talks, writes in English, because of the English that at that time they controlled 13 states (in those day 13 colonies) at the same time, he can consider that a lot of the people who put the firm on the declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies on the continental congress were from people that was born in these 13 colonies, that at the same time was British territories and at the same time had British fathers… so… the founding fathers were british AND taking in consideration that a lot of slaves were from North Africa (another piece of land controlled by the british) were in majority black people, and they were sold and used in this 13 colonies to work cotton and other kind of work.
So we are back now, a black person who dont like that, in his country, made by british people and worked by black hands sing the anthem in a different language other than English (language inserted obviously by the british duing the colony time). Ok… sounds logical, he can leave the country now.
you all wont be saying this when YOU ALL are subjected to listen to Sharia laws being rammed down your throats….At least he still beleives in these United States…You all can sit and do/say nothing but detrimental comments to someone that has served this country ….More then half his life proudly …He is making a point….THIS IS OUR COUNTRY …..WHY ARENT YOU AS PISSED AS HE AND I ARE??YOu are ok with pushing ,”hit 2 to speak english???”Wait….wait until it says ,#5 to speak english ….Pathetic..No wonder this country is in such a fucked up mess…THOSE of you that never served anything for this country but a cocktail should be bitch slapped….wake the fuck up as our country is taken away in front of your eyes….whatever…wont do a damn thing …Smoke another doob…pour another drink and spit on those of us that defended your right to say your bull shit…..Can I get an AMEN?
First of all, The star spangled banner is the national anthem of the United States. Secondly, there is North america AND South America… He should be forced to leave for his ignorance.
Good bye Allen West. While you are getting your tickets……take the other bigots who share your views with you ok?? America will be just fine without this garbage.
“hasn’t ruled out suicide as a protest against this America-hating commercial.” My favorite quote from him. Please follow your dreams there Adam
Excuse me but they were not singing the national anthem
You,Rish and Glenn!! See Ya! You know you can’t find it better anywhere else! Don’t say it if you don’tean it! Oh I forgot! Your a Tea Bagger!!
Get the fuck out and take the rest of theTeaPubliCon haters with you. Then this will really be a great country!
Good to see a lot of people to stupid to click the FACTS button at the end of the article. Don’t let the door hit you all in the stupid.
How incredibly intolerant. Wonder if in his new home the locals will be tolerant of him or has he forgotten his US history?
By the way Mr. West a real American knows that America the Beautiful is not the national anthem
Is there an air fare fund.
COUNT ME IN!

Buh Bye! No clue who he is anyway and does he think his ancestors were born here? idiot
Hooray!!! That’s one less Republican we have to put up with! Seeee Yaaaaaa!
Unfortunately, I think this is satire. I WISH this jerk would leave.
Thank goodness this loser is leaving. Ciao Stupido!
TALKING ABOUT THE ILLUSION OF INCLUSION….ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
That’s a shame. I really liked him on the old Batman TV show.
GOOD BYE MORON. TAKE RUSH WITH YOU
Does he need some help packing?
By Allen you won’t be missed
This is why I drink Pepsi. Boycott Coke.
fuck this guy. I can’t believe I’m saying this but if anybody deserves to be beaten into a fucking coma, it’s definitely this guy. He’s practically asking for it.
…..so THAT’s where Michele Bachman has it from! Hilarious! 😀 Don’t buy a ticket to Europe, buddy, we don’t want you!
So long asshole.
Um… Buh bye.
