Posted on 04/11/2012 11:11:18 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
MIAMI (CBSMiami) It wasnt quite Joseph McCarthy waving around papers claiming to know of communists in the federal government, but according to the Palm Beach Post, Congressman Allen West claims he has heard there are communists in the House of Representatives.
According to the Post, West was talking to Jensen Beach voters this week when he said President Barack Obama was scared to have a discussion with him.
West then said that hes heard up to 80 members of the U.S. House of Representatives are Communist Party members, but declined to give the names of any of the alleged members, according to the Post.

“A communist is just a socialist who really means it.”
We have plenty of both here in Wisconsin and we are fighting them with all we’ve got.
Far as I am concerned EVERY STINKING DIMOCRAT in the house or senate is a stinking communist. ANY dimocrat is a socialist and communist, homo loving baby murdering abortion thug.
Well done, Rep. West!!!
... and at least a couple dozen Republicans.
I don’t know how many commie reps Michigan has, but in my view, BOTH Senators Stabenow (StabeCOW) and (Comrade) Levin are.
And this is only part of them.
I was thinking the same thing, "80 Communist Party Members In U.S. House", Col. West is definitely low-balling it.
“Far as I am concerned EVERY STINKING DIMOCRAT in the house or senate is a stinking communist. ANY dimocrat is a socialist and communist, homo loving baby murdering abortion thug.”
No, seriously. How do you really feel?
CPC: enemies of the state.
A communist is a socialist who wants to be one of the few who lives high on the hog.
However truthful that assertion may be, he’ll likely rue the day that he repeated it without proof of its veracity! There’s no difference between democratic socialists and communists as far as I’m concerned. It’s a distinction without a difference but the media will crucify him with this. Anything a conservative says is cause for an irrational response!
The MSM and the Dimmunists will do their very best to make a pariah out of him. The target, Col. West, has now been isolated. They will attempt to personalize it.
I have great confidence in Col. West and I hope he can land an overwhelming number of counter-punches when they attempt to discredit him. But the MSM and Rats cannot let this stand unchallenged. They WILL go after him. Father in heaven, give him the words to say and the deeds to do.
I would challenge these “pariah makers” to tell me why it is so “extreme” to point out that there is no difference between communist policy and democrat policy and challenge them to define the difference.
We need to rip up the left’s “McCarthy” card just as much as their race card.
On the other hand, maybe now’s the time to expose those commie bastards for who they are (with the permission of the republican establishment, of course)!
There are also two commies in the White House.....
Hussein and Moochelle.
And that's just on the Republican side!
***West then said that hes heard***
How disingenuous! All he has to do is search on the web for “Congressional Progressive Caucus” and the list of members is right there in black and white for all the world to see. From Wikipedia: “The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is the largest caucus within the Democratic caucus in the United States Congress with 83 declared members, and works to advance progressive issues and positions.” Looking at their “issues” and “positions,” anyone with any knowledge of socialism and/or communism will recognize them as such. The members of this caucus are not shy about their membership, Nancy Pelosi especially. So for Rep. West to be so cautious is cowardly. People need to just tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may. The media will criticize anyway, might as well give them some real meat to bludgeon us with. At least it will be out there.
I counted 76.
Wasn’t the name “Congressional Progressive Caucus” renamed in 1991 from another name. To get away from the word ‘socialist’?
Sorry can’t say. My Faith, and my old dearly departed Mama, would beat me with a big stick if what I have thought of these people came out in words. I have defended this republic since I was 18 years old. It sickens me to the depths of my bones what these freedom hating, American hating bums are doing to us.
Only 80?? I thought it would be more!!!
Thanks for linking newheart and wolfcreek. So important I’ll link it again.
Want to DEPOPULATE some of the socialists from the body politic? Start...here...(and watch them and the rest of their enablers squeal like pigs...(with apologies to pigs of course))...
Some of the damage National Socialists have done to America...(here)...
The good news: we can vote these CRIMINALS out. Build on 2010! C’mon November!
I “heard” the same in an email that was circulating within the last 2 weeks. The email named names, and they were the usual suspects.
80? Is that all he found?
I agree. It is time to draw a line in the sand about a lot of things. Col. West has drawn one. We need to get out in front with him and not cower in the face of an incoming barrage.
I can tell you, both our governor and rookie senator from Connecticut are full fledged communists... and pushing berrie’s agenda as hard and as lawlessly as they can.
Too bad we cannot have a Joe McCarthy style of house cleaning. Joe was very right !
I don’t think the name of the caucus was changed, since it was founded in 1991. However, I think they named it “Progressive” specifically to deflect attention away from the fact that they are communist in reality. Most people don’t know that communists have called themselves “progressive” for more than 20 years - they hear “progessive” and think “so what?” People would have been a lot more aware and critical of the dems if they had known what was really going on. (Of course, those of us who have been on FR for a while have known all along who they really are.) Communists are always sneaky about everything they do, and even though these members are proud to be “progressive,” I am sure they will scream when they are labeled “communist” - even though they are. No wonder they are all insane. If I was a betting person, I would start a thread on how long it will be before Nancy Pelosi begins one of her endless tirades (even though he didn’t name names, she will know he meant her, since I believe she considers herself at the top of the list).
Demand they define the difference or suck it up and defend communism.
I’m assuming that he means members of the Progressive Caucus of the Democratic Socialists of America.
They used to post the list of Congressional members on the DSA web site, along with an essay that explained how they came to call themselves “progressives” instead of “socialists”. The explanation was, and I’m not kidding, that the DSA was interested in organizing the Black voters, but Blacks were scared off by the term, “socialist” and didn’t really understand what it meant, so they chose to call themselves, “Progressives”.
Back in the 90’s, about the time that the Republicans took control of Congress, the list of Congressional members who held membership in both the Democrat Party and the Democratic Socialists of America, became controversial and the many of those on the list blamed the open list of names by the DSA for the loss of Congress to the Republicans. So, the DSA revised their web site and removed the list and the reference to the dual party membership, as well as some of the essays and list of sponsors from the web site.
In other words, they made the site very boring.
80? Do they think we are stupid? There are more than eighty democrats in the House...
How very interesting!
“A top official of the Communist Party USA on Wednesday ripped Rep. Allen Wests sad ploy for claiming that as many as 80 Democratic members of the House are communists.”
I find this very strange. Given that Goal #15 (Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963) was to capture one or both political parties, why aren’t they gloating over their representation among the Democrats in Congress?
The difference between a socialist and a communist is that former would love to have guts to be the latter...if he could still travel in private jets and drink the best booze and wear the best clothes and live in the best neighborhoods.
Conservatives are not really shocked that there are communist in the US Congress. We have known this fact for awhile and we know the danger of communism has had on human history.
The problem is about half this country DOES NOT CARE if congress has 80 communist members just as long as that half of the country continues to get their food stamps, free cell phones, section 8 housing vouchers etc.
Storm clouds have been gathering for several years and it’s just a matter of time before all hell breaks loose.
Communism is the BIGGEST economic bubble in human history and it will NOT last without serious bloodshed.
It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between Democrats and Communists....
Oh a scene from the original MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE comes to mind. Something about 57 communists.
Together, Communist Party and Socialist Party leaders established the Democratic Socialists of America, and they share a common ideology which is now the platform and mantra of todays DNC - CPUSA Insert the word Democrats where Communists appears in this statement, and you have the central message of todays Democrat leadership.
To gain full control of the Democrat Party, DSA leadership established two congressional legislative bodies, headed by DSA/CPUSA/SPUSA members. Today, these are the two congressional bodies in control of congress.
They are the Congressional Progressive Caucus established by Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the Congressional Black Caucus established by Communist Party member John Conyers of Michigan.
ALL members of these two congressional committees represent the Democratic Socialists of America, as both committees are the creation of, and operate under the control of DSAUSA.
If you want to know who is behind the full-court press to nationalize or socialize health care, the auto industry, banking and insurance, here they are
. Is YOUR congress member on these lists?
That was really weird. I just clicked on the page for the Congressional Black Caucus members and was on a page on the web site of Emanuel Cleaver with drawing of members of the Black Progressive Caucus, and the page disappeared and I got a message that the access was forbidden.
Is that one representative from each of the 57 states?
Allen West is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Are you telling me that he didn’t know that the Congressional Black Caucus was founded by the CPUSA?
Patrick Murphy, whose criticism of West is mentioned in the article, is an ass.
Since he makes a big deal about having been in the army and being a “fighter,” does anyone know if he served in combat or if he was basically just a lawyer?
In any case, I support the real fighter West.
I'd like to be there when you explain, in person, how cowardly Rep. West is.
I thought it was Senator Stab-me-now. When they get her on camera, that’s all you can see.
There should be a list published.
I know a little bit about the DSA and the overlap with the Democrat Party, but your post filled in some details I wasn’t aware of. Thank You!
