The police were called on Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West at DFW Airport, where he was attempting to mind his own business while being accosted by a leftist busybody.
Allen West, who is also the ex-chairman of the Texas Republican Party, got into a confrontation with the ‘Karen,’ who was trying to shame him for not wearing a mask.
A statement on the altercation was posted on his campaign website, describing an argument with a “left-wing partisan” who went out of their way to curse at West for not wearing a mask at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
The statement read:
“After being berated, West responded by flicking the individual’s mask off… DFW Airport Police arrived on the scene and a report was filed. Col. West has gladly spoken to the officers… West will not cave to bullying by progressive political punks. We look forward to a resolution on this matter, and as Governor, West will not tolerate abusive agitators. Rule of law and common decency will be defended.”
A tweet thread about the altercation was also posted on Allen West’s official Twitter account.
“This morning at the airport a man starts yelling at me and tells me to put my mask on and calls me an idiot. I walked over to him and asked if he called me an idiot, he continued to yell at me. I pulled down his mask and said see, nothing happened,” the first tweet read.
“He put up his fists and I walked away. I did call him a stupid man. I have spoken to DFW PD. There’s no mask law, nothing has ever passed in the US House and Senate making wearing a mask law,” read the second tweet.
He put up his fists and I walked away. I did call him a stupid man. I have spoken to DFW PD.
There’s no mask law, nothing has ever passed in the US House and Senate making wearing a mask law.
