Anthony Falzarano had a bit of an exchange Tuesday morning with some protesters standing outside The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, where U.S. Rep. Allen West was scheduled to speak.
The nearly 20 protesters outside held signs and distributed fliers to passersby. But Falzarano didn’t like a comment he heard from someone in the group who said West is against jobs.
“It’s Obama, Obama!” he yelled back at them.
Palm Beach Police Officer Michele Pagan asked Falzarano to be respectful of the protesters and not to bait them into an argument.
Falzarano listened and complied.
Once inside, Falzarano said, “Congressman Allen West is holding President Obama accountable for not getting jobs. Why is the president moving for jobs now, a year before his re-election campaign. Why didn’t he work on jobs three years ago when the Democrats controlled the Senate and controlled the House of Representatives, when he could have easily passed a jobs bill. He’s moving for a jobs bill because he knows he’s in great jeopardy of not being re-elected. Republicans are often accused of being racist, that we don’t want a black president in the White House. We don’t mind any president’s color as long as he stands for American, Judeo-Christian values.”
