Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Dispel Outrageous Allen West Claims
Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) ^ | 4/11/12 | Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC)

Posted on 04/11/2012 6:04:41 PM PDT by mdittmar

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.”

Oaths mean nothing to neither Communists nor Progressives.

Absolutely. Especially in the case of Ellison, who is a koran thumping muslim as well as the above!

"issues that concern working families"

The Congressional Black Caucus and/or the Progressive Black Caucus have NOTHING to do with "working families", except to take their income/earnings and hand it over to the 4th Generation Welfare Parasites that they look out for, aka, "Holder's People".

Wealth Redistribution and Reparations are all that they are concerned with.

They are PARASITES that continually get re-elected by PARASITES, period.

This is a very good lesson for patriots to look at.

Within hours after Mr. West correctly outs the commies in the rat party, the commie mutts are out there attacking Mr. West.

We need a rapid response team to attack the commies when they make stupid charges.

Oops! That would take national leadership from the Chicken-shit republican party.

The National GOP needs to go. They’re too fat, stupid and comfortable.

Go, Col. West.

My personal belief is while a citizen is on welfare / gov’t hand outs; they should not be allowed to vote.

Leftist progressives are marxists. Most of them would also qualify as fascists, but thats another discussion. They are proud of what they are, they just push back when we name the name because its a way of trying to keep us off balance.

They are all socialists, and they know it and they are proud of it. If you call them that they’ll squeal, but among themselves its something to be proud of, and something they promote with every breath. Again, they only deny it as a way of messing with peoples’ heads.

Some socialists may not know who Marx was but its a cinch that every Obamist is a marxist when they aren’t Islamists, and some are both. And proud of it. They only deny it to mess with you.

As for the patriotism thing, its an inside joke with them. They have complete contempt for the constitution, and they hate everything America stands for. But they love forcing people to back down from questioning their patriotism. “Are you questioning my patriotism?” “Uh, no, sorry, I never meant to question your patriotism...”

Making us apologize for questioning their patriotism while they attack America every waking moment of every waking day is a favorite hobby for marxists, islamists, leftwing fascists, self-styled “anarchist” street thugs, and the whole crazy stew.

"My personal belief is while a citizen is on welfare / gov’t hand outs; they should not be allowed to vote."

No question that should be the case.

However, with half the country not paying ANY income tax, they are what keep their benefactors continuously re-elected, to keep the gravy flowing from the self-reliant, responsible folks who actually WORK for a living.

How do you get a "Tax Rebate", when you paid no taxes in the first place? (The answer: VOTE DEMOCRAT)

Every last one of the CBC and the CPC are stinking communists. We all know that they are. Why not just admit it Ellison, and Schumer and Conyers, and Pelosi, and Reid, and Waters and on and on.

YOU ARE ALL FILTHY, STINKING, COMMUNISTS !!

Your gumption is appreciated, and if I ran the rapid reponse team, I’d hire you in a second.

However, your perfectly reasoned response doesn’t go much beyond FR; then again, if I get to Heaven’s gate before you, you can bet I’ll put in a good word to St. Peter for your effort.

Cheers, buddy.

Any prospective GOP minority must be stopped if the DNC/MSM is to play the race war card and maintain their dwindling control.

Alan West isn’t ignoring their oaths of office, they are. And yes, he is denigrating those who put them in office because they either believe in their communist ways or are just plain stupid.

I agree with West and have called the Democrat Party the Communist Party for over 30 years. McCarthy? He was right and look at all the Commies in the Movie Industry. The more they all denigrate Sen. Joe, the more they show their RED STREAK.

I do not think the reds constituents have been insulted. They are stupid and won't know what happened. Their fearless Marxist soon to be dictator, ObAmA will con them down. Oops a misspell.

He went overboard. Unless they are members of the CPUSA with a little card that goes into their wallet, most people will think he went overboard with hyperbole. That said, the accused said this with a straight face:

When people like Rep. West have no ideals or principles, they rely on personal attacks.

What was that, but a personal attack?

Perhaps the CPC can explain which of their policies the Communists wouldn’t support?

It was not so many years ago that I followed a link to the Democratic Socialists of America website (dsausa.org) and found a photograph of the entire House Democrat Progressive Caucus.

The caption claimed that they were all proud members of the Democratic Socialists of America party. It was signed by Nancy Pelosi.

The Democratic Socialists of America were, and remain, a front group for the Communists.

Thus, his claim is not "outrageous" -- it is absolutely the truth.

Psssssssst. The picture is no longer there...
