Allen West says many congressional Democrats are Communists
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) ... suggested that as many as 81 Democrats in Congress are not only secret Communists, but actual members of the Communist Party.
When a questioner asked West about Marxists in “the American legislature,” some in the crowd jeered, but West took a different approach. “No, it’s a good question,” he said, adding: “I believe there is about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.”
After a long pause, West adds that he is talking about the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a group of 76 of the more liberal Democrats in the U.S. House. West’s comment clearly states that these members of Congress are also actual members of the Communist Party. >>>
West campaign manager Tim Edson (said) “He stands by the comments,” >>> “Call them what you want; they’re clearly people who oppose capitalism and free markets and individual economic freedom. So, if the shoe fits.” Pressed on whether those members are actual Communists, Edson said the label isn’t the point.
“We can quibble about the terminology used to describe them, but it’s clear,” he said. “Whatever you call people that oppose capitalism and free markets and individual economic freedom — maybe it’s ‘socialist,’ maybe it’s ’Communist’ — but that’s the point the congressman was making, and he stands by the words.”
While the left (the DNC and the MSNews Media) gets their pink panties in a twist over this, the GOP (leadership) typically still cant find a spine to crawl out from under the rock they are currently hiding under. I guess its ok as long as they have their tanning salons down there too.
Meanwhile its up to the junior congressman and representatives to do all the heavy lifting. Go Allen West!
