GOP lawmaker says 75-plus Dems are communists

WASHINGTON (AP) – Republican Rep. Allen West said he believes 75-plus House Democrats are members of the Communist Party, a claim that echoed Joe McCarthy’s unsubstantiated 1950s charges that communists had infiltrated the top ranks of the U.S. government.

Addressing a town-hall meeting Tuesday in Florida, the freshman lawmaker was asked how many members of the American legislature are “card-carrying Marxists.” West said “there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He did not provide names.

West’s office said Wednesday that the congressman stood by the comments and was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest group within the House Democratic caucus.

“The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies,” said Angela Melvin, a spokeswoman for West. “The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom.”

Allen West says what many only think and are afraid to say. He speaks directly, he doesn’t use innuendo and he lets you know exactly what is on his mind.

I KNOW that feeling.

According to some sources The Communist Party has Endorsed Obama For 2012, and I don’t know why that would come as a surprise to anyone. Barack Hussein Obama espouses many Communist and Marxist traits. The Progressive Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives would be one of Obama’s biggest cheering sections.

West’s office cited a May 2010 article on health care that appeared in the Communist Party USA pre-convention publication that described the Progressive Caucus and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., as allies of the party but not members. The article, however, carried the disclaimer that Communist Party USA “takes no responsibility for the opinions expressed in this article or other articles in the pre-convention discussion.”

Reps. Raul M. Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the co-chairs of the caucus, rejected West’s claim.

Of course these cretins reject West’s claims, they don’t have the GUTS to stand up in front of the American people and admit that they are indeed Communists and that their plan, by Communist design, is to destroy the United States of America.

“Allen West is denigrating the millions of Americans who voted to elect Congressional Progressive Caucus members, and he is ignoring the oath they took to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution – just like he did,” the two said in a statement. “Calling fellow members of Congress ‘communists’ is reminiscent of the days when Joe McCarthy divided Americans with name-calling and modern-day witch hunts that don’t advance policies to benefit people’s lives.”

Grijalva and Ellison said West “repeatedly polarizes the American people instead of focusing on their interests. When people like Rep. West have no ideals or principles, they rely on personal attacks.”

Allen West isn’t denigrating anyone, unless THE TRUTH is denigration. How is you Communist bastards look at it? Truth is lies, lies are truth? Some such nonsense?

Joe McCarthy sounded the alarm, sadly, far too many Americans failed to answer the bell and then laziness and apathy set in and the Communist Party established a solid foothold in America. Again, if it’s the truth, it’s not denigration nor is it personal attacks, it TRUTH, and Communists can’t stand TRUTH.

The caucus, founded in 1991, includes 75 House members and one senator and describes its goals as economic fairness, civil rights, environmental protection, energy independence and global security.

The Palm Beach Post first reported the congressman’s comments.

During the Cold War, McCarthy, a Republican senator from Wisconsin, claimed that communists and Soviet spies had burrowed their way into the federal government. He never produced the documentation to back up his claims.

McCarthy may not have produced the documentation, but it appears that Allen West has it. CPUSA, Progressives and the Democratic Party; a match made in HELL!

    How can you not love Lt. Col Allen West?

    This man has been in combat and sacrificed a stellar military career for his troops. Honestly, I wouldn’t care if this man was a Democrat. What he did in Iraq for his troops has earned my respect and admiration. I’ve served under too many officers who look upon the enlisted men as noting but promotion fodder. Facing what he has in his military career, a group of liberal communist Democrats are nothing but a bunch of panty-waste pansies.

    I think Col. West has undercounted…

  4. And isn’t it strange — ?

    Following the fall of The Wall in 1989, various KGB documents were exhumed that indicated Joseph McCarthy was CORRECT!

    Imagine that.

    Finally someone with the balls to tell it like it is. You can at least add The Congressional Black Caucus to the list of Communists. IMHO all in congress who support Barry are Communists or closet Muslims. LTC West is a true patriot.
