Allen West: Almost Half The Democrats In Congress Are Communists Update: Reporter Selectively Edited Out West Saying They Were The Congressional Progressive Caucus
Lib meltdown alert.
Via The Hill:
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) says hes heard that almost half of all the Democrats in Congress are secretly part of the Communist Party.
He offered no names or proof of his accusation.
West told almost 100 Floridians in Palm City on Tuesday that hes heard as many as 80 Democrats in Congress are members of the Communist Party, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The freshman Republican, an outspoken conservative and Tea Party favorite, is a longtime critic of the Democratic Party.
At the same event, he charged that President Obama was scared to meet with him.
Update: An attempted hatchet job by Palm Beach Post reporter Jonathan Mattise, who edited out the second half of Wests comment where he specifically said he was referring to the CPC. You can see the full video here, the edited one Mattise used is here. If you have a second, contact the papers managing editor Mike Canan.
The “Progressive Caucus”.
I just posted on another thread that I thought that was what he was talking about, and yes they are Communists, so he’s right.
the congressional communist caucus is the same as the progs caucus.
Yes, and I bet that at least 100% of the Communists in Congress are Democrats, or vote with the Democrats.
It's the closet commies that are the most dangerous. Those are the types that saved the original communist revolution.
They are probably the guarantors of the continuing success of the final stages of this revolution we are living through.
set aside to read
He’s nuts...it’s closer to 100%
Dean: Socialist victory equals win for Dems The media, Gov. Dean, and the Democratic Party at large may not find it objectionable that Dean endorsed the current-day equivalent of the Kremlin to run for the U.S. Senate.
What is Democratic Socialism?
Question: Arent you a party thats in competition with the Democratic Party for votes and support?
No, we are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the partys leftwing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. The radical Marxist-progressives (communists) took control of the democrat party some time ago. Theyve only become more emboldened with the election of Barack Obama, who was raised as a communist from birth.
With their new found leader, Barack Obama, the Socialist Party of America felt secure enough to announce the names of 70 democrats in Congress that belong to their caucus. This was recently posted on Scribd.com:
Yesterday on Hannity Col West said it’s wrong “when an armed man kills an unarmed man”. That did it for me as far as Col West goes.
I don’t watch television, but if that’s precisely what Col. West said, then I’m in total agreement with you. That’s not taking into account the hate within the man of one race beating the other of another race to death, because of the color of his skin. Hate is the fuel that only a gun can equalize in such an altercation, and hate is being taught in our black society nowadays just as the Muslims are being taught to hate in theirs, and ours.
Most unfortunate. Col. West needs to rethink his statement if that’s what he said, and meant.
Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) Co-Chairs Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva and Keith Ellison react to Allen West claims:
“Allen West is denigrating the millions of Americans who voted to elect Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) members, and he is ignoring the oath they took to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution—just like he did. 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.
“We hope the people of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District will note that he 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. The CPC is proud to stand up for economic equality and civil and human rights for all Americans. Congress is having, and will continue to have, an ongoing debate about job creation, home foreclosuresand the issues that concern working families. But we will not engage in base and childish conversations that lower the high level of discourse Americans rightly expectfrom their representatives.”
I like this man... and I hate communists.
And I thought the Dem Congress critters are >98% Communists.
Just imagine the outcry if he had said “all of the Congressional Black Caucus are black”?
” Just imagine the outcry if he had said all of the Congressional Black Caucus are black? “

Isn’t THAT the ever loving truth! What’s the difference?
Of course, half of Americans may no longer know what a progressive/communist/Marxist/socialist even is today. They have all come up through gumment schools forward.
Oh my... that is gastly!!! What if he had called barney frank gay?!
It was on Hannity’s radio show. Hannity let it slide. Of course, Hannity probably didn’t even hear him. Hannity never listens to the other person. His brain is too busy thinking of what he wants to say.
And 60% of Republicans are RINOs.
If West is going to show us that he’s an ass, it’s good that he’s doing it now rather than after Romney possibly picks him for VP.
I haven’t passed judgment on West but his ‘wrong when armed man kills unarmed man’ remark is not something to come from the mouth of a savvy guy.
Also, rather than telling us someone is a Communist, why not tell us their background and beliefs and let us apply labels as we wish.
Local news said he was referring to the progressive caucus which includes from Illinois Jan Schakovsky, Bobby Rush and JJJr. So I would say West was correct.....
