Communist Party slams Allen West
Politico ^ | April 11, 2012 | DARIUS DIXON

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 West’s “sad ploy” for claiming that as many as 80 Democratic members of the House are communists.

“I just think it’s an absurd way to cast a shadow over his colleagues. It’s kind of a sad ploy,” Libero Della Piana, a vice-chairman of the national Communist Party, said of the Florida Republican’s charge that about 80 House Democrats were members of the radical party.

“It’s 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.

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

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.

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!

I'm sure Politico is right, there are no commies in Congress.

There aren't any in Hollywood either, and never have been.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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 Obama’s 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 Panetta’s career. Phrases like ‘social justice’ and ‘dark forces of McCarthyism’ rolled from Rep. Panetta’s pen, in a piece that would not have been out of place in the Communist Party’s Peoples Daily World.”

He adds, “The DeLacys were not merely Panetta’s constituents—they 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 Panetta’s 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 Reagan’s anti-communist foreign policy and military defense build-up. Incidentally, back then Panetta was a foe of CIA covert action to protect America’s vital interests, which makes Obama’s 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.
