Posted on 04/11/2012 11:50:47 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
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 just think its an absurd way to cast a shadow over his colleagues. Its kind of a sad ploy, Libero Della Piana, a vice-chairman of the national Communist Party, said of the Florida Republicans charge that about 80 House Democrats were members of the radical party.
Its just guilt by association taken to an extreme, he told POLITICO. He also said there are no members of Congress who are members of the Communist Party not even avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

They’re so bad that even the Commies won’t claim them.
You don’t have to be a member of communist party to be a communist. Duh!
Even the Communists don’t want to be compared to the DemonRATS?
All joking aside, Allen West is 50% right.
I would have said 100%.
I don’t know any DemonRATS that aren’t communists.
The good Colonel has had to listen to the blather of the reds in the cloakrooms in the capitol building, and is probably is fed up with hearing the nonsense.
I thought the SDP caucus which was founded by both the communist and socialist usa parties recently outed at least 70 members of their caucus.
LOL Communist Party USA, why don’t these a-holes move to Venezuela to see what REAL Communism looks like. They talk the talk here, but if they moved to a real Commie country they would come back here and kiss the ground
Shouldn’t they be pleased with West’s remark?
I think the Communist Party USA is really upset that Col. West UNDER-estimated the number of communists in Congress.
The actual number is probably much higher.
Leave it to Politico to even know how to contact these guys.
Could there be a better endorsement of West? I don't think so!
West for VP!
“Shouldnt they be pleased with Wests remark?”
You would think, but then again, the Marxist RATs in Congress are so bad at their jobs, my guess is that they have disappointed even the Comunists!
There aren't any in Hollywood either, and never have been.
“A top official of the Communist Party USA”
HOORAY Allen West!
HOORAY Allen West!
HOORAY Allen West!
Squeal collectivist squeal. DEPOPULATE them from the body politic. Build on 2010! C’mon November! Some...here...
if a congress member voted in favor of obozo care and by that vote alone makes it pretty clear they fall within the communist mind set. So what’s the different between having a communist mind set and actully being a communist? Nothing!
They are not Communists, they just play ones on television.
Name em and shame em! Of course they have no shame, I know. So is Odumbo and I wish someone, anyone would call him what he is, a stink’in Commie! Cas Sunstein et el. Communists all. And that fact should be pounded every day till election day.
The pissant threatens the Supreme Court. Black Panthers threaten race war with the most vile and violent language. They place bounty’s on the head of fellow citizens and the NFL is more forceful in condemning the practice of bounties than the Department of Justice!
Eric Holder pats Al Sharpton on the back and the law bends to the Mob.
They are playing with fire!
Ooooh, were I Allen West, I’d be quaking in my boots.
After all, when you’re criticized by a group that supports the world’s most documented series of massive fails evah....you shoujld be really scared.
Shove it up your collective Obamas, commies...you couldn’t run a successful lemonade stand...and your guy obviously cannot run the presidency.
Allen West is committing the same error as McCarthy and that is grossly underestimating the number of communists in our government. The state department, just like during McCarthy’s era reeks to high heaven with the communist vermin.
The “Democratic Socialists Of America” list many more of their socialists/communist comrades than Allen is claiming.
The MSM is almost completely dedicated to the communist agenda.
Ever wonder how these alleged self avowed “Enlightened” individuals can possibly explain the huge difference between E/W Germany, E/W Berlin, N/S Korea? How come their beloved Marxism/Communism/socialism fairs so poorly when compared to the much more successful but highly maligned capitalism?
The nighttime image of N/S Korea would make a great Conservative commercial comparing our Marxist President’s vision of the world vs the success of capitalism.
Does the GOP have the stones to run such a commercial or as I suspect, has the GOP become so infected by the cancer of progressives that it is just Odumbo lite?
“I just think its an absurd way to cast a shadow over his colleagues”
So the communist party thinks being a communist is a bad thing. wow I finally agree on something with these traitors.
How dare he call people members of our organization! That’s just dirty rotten politics.. um, I mean (...hey wait a minute guys- we like us, don’t we?)
I can come up with the names of at least two communists from California in the House of Representatives. Bob Filner was a red diaper baby. His father was a memeber of the Communist Party USA. Barbara Lee is another. I am sure there are many more from California alone.
Shouldnt they be pleased with Wests remark?
Typical left-wingers. They protect their comrads, and deny their activities. How else could they continue their missions!
I found that hilarious. The communist party just said it was a negative thing to be a member of the communist party.
Seriously, though, communists would disavow their mother if it meant advancing their cause.
Democrats are offended if you refer to them as socialists, but among themselves they are proud socialists. They believe in socialism, so referring to their policies as “socialist” doesn’t offend them since that is in fact what they are and what they do believe in. But they will always pretend to be offended if you call them that.
Similarly, Obamists are proud marxists. But they will pretend to be offended if you call them a marxist. This is just their way of trying to keep you off balance. They hate America and the consitution but they will again pretend to be offended if you state or imply that they are not patriotic. Of course they aren’t patriotic, they don’t believe in this country at all. But if you say they aren’t, they will try to force you to apologize and concede that, in their own way, they too are patriots. Then they go back to their full-time business of denigrating everything the country is founded upon.
Its just the game they play and try to force us to play. If we fall for it, the joke is on us.
Then West is doing something right and hitting nerves.
“Shouldnt they be pleased with Wests remark?”
Nope—when you realize this is a typical commie tactic of “deflection”. Trying to change the focus of the topic/review. Never admit to anything, always try to change the subject—thus the discovery of the truth.
Its just guilt by association taken to an extreme,
Well, if you root in the pigpen with the pigs, its probable that people will associate you with pigs. My apologies to the pigs.
Pissin’ off the right people, Allen!
Not if he is exposing them. This is proof that he is right.
What "Libero" meant to say was "if only *every* member of Congress was a Communist".
So, let me get this striaght: A Communist says that it’s “sad ploy” for someone to be accused of being a “Communist”.
Am I missing something here?
If Leon Pannetta was closely connected to card carrying communists, it is in no way deluded to say that we have about 80 communists in the House.
And now Neon Leon is head of the CIA. Then we have Obamas open mike blooper. Who in all hell is asleep at the switch?
Methinks the COMMUNIST PARTY doth protest too much!
Just check this out:
Back in 1983 he (Pannetta) inserted a tribute into the Congressional Record, recognizing DeLacy and his wife Dorothy, another communist, for their commitment to social justice and resisting the dark forces of McCarthyism. The latter strongly indicates that Panetta was aware of their involvement in the communist cause and that not only did it not matter to him, it was evidence of their courage and bravery.
Trevor Loudon writes, The couple, Hugh DeLacy and his wife Dorothy Baskin DeLacy, both had long histories with the Communist Party USA and were very active in the Santa Cruz progressive movement that had helped nurture Congressman Panettas career. Phrases like social justice and dark forces of McCarthyism rolled from Rep. Panettas pen, in a piece that would not have been out of place in the Communist Partys Peoples Daily World.
He adds, The DeLacys were not merely Panettas constituentsthey were close personal friends. Hugh DeLacy was also a longtime correspondent, with whom Panetta regularly discussed defense and foreign policy issues.
In addition to this evidence, we have congressional hearings, information about a communist cell active in Santa Cruz, and Panettas own record as a member of Congress, where he fought during the 1980s to protect communist advances in such countries as Nicaragua and Grenada and worked feverishly to undermine President Reagans anti-communist foreign policy and military defense build-up. Incidentally, back then Panetta was a foe of CIA covert action to protect Americas vital interests, which makes Obamas selection of him as CIA director even more interesting.
DeLacy was not only a prominent member of the Communist Party USA, but also a personal contact of identified Soviet spies Solomon Adler and Frank Coe and accused spy John Stewart Service.
OOO, bet that will leave a mark.
Did they deny any of his accusations? Or just the conclusion he came to?
