Totally serious question here.

I see a lot of these are Black Dems...what is it about Socialism that blacks are so attracted to?

They get to sit at the adult table. Remember Socialism is nothing more than a criminal enterprise masked in ideology.

FRiend, I don't have all the answers, but the last 40 years of socialism/welfare programs being pushed on our black American bretheren has a lot to do with it.

We have a 3rd generation of welfare families, who rely solely on guvmint for their living, sad, but true.

This is not to say that white folks don't benefit from welfare, but disproportionately it's black folks.

Excuse my yawn.

I've been writing about this for 30 years - ever since I, as an investigative reporter for a statewide paper, infiltrated a “NO PRESS’ meeting of our state's DSA meeting - they went on in very state, called DSOC meetings (Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee meetings.)

The main speaker was, at the time, our states Senate Majority leader - a democrat. He came to the podium, pulled a card out of his pocket and opened with: “I, like you, am a card carrying socialist.”

He went on to lament that since they were unsuccessful in even getting their knight in shinning armor - Ted Kennedy - elected as their presidential candidate and then, on top of that, Ronald Reagan ran away with the election - that they now would have to pull back and regroup.

Their new strategy? “Infiltrate and take over the democrat party.”

that was, as I say, 30 years ago. Any doubt as to their success?

The people slept. Most still do. I almost can't even care anymore. Almost.

I know you must be frustrated, but you know people are waking up!

Look at the success of the Tea Party, America does not want socialism!

Re-energize yourself and your pen and let's keep exposing these dims for what they have become!

You know as well as I do that the average American has a vey short attention span.

Let's keep plugging, day to day, about the dims extreme agenda, and we may be able to breathe easy for awhile after the November elections!

I'm not saying a republican sweep in Novemeber is great, but it's a start.

Let's keep at 'em!

I posted the Feb. 2009 list for historic reference.

Some members have changed since then.

There was a time recently when the Progressive Caucus dissappeared from the House.gov website.

Later it was put back up on the site. I think that some of them were just running for cover when they realized that the natives were upset at their true nature.

It was circulated by Co-Chair Grijalva that he had death threats and the FBI was involved in investigating. I doubt that actually happened, but it is possible.

These are evil cretin. And all are Traitors to the nation and “We the People”.

“I see a lot of these are Black Dems...what is it about Socialism that blacks are so attracted to?”

The Black community has been targeted and courted by a coalition of people wanted to counter Civil Rights advances and to Balkanize America. The Nation of Islam did a number on American Blacks with big money for propaganda aimed at gaining converts. Muslims have throughout history been the slave traders of Blacks, but the Blacks didn’t seem to understand that or that they were being lured into a new slavery of Islam. The Marxist partners of Islam just wants to create racial discord and fan the flames to create violence and a “rising up of the masses” (ala Karl Marx). The hate of “whitey” was the name of the game. They figure they’ll be in charge since they’ll have accumulated complete power. What they don’t understand if that Islam won’t let them.
