Are there Communists in the US House of Representatives?
US Daily Review ^ | 11 April 2012 | Kevin Price

Posted on 04/12/2012 1:34:55 PM PDT by DBeers

Tea Party favorite, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) made headlines this week by saying there are members of the Communist party in the US House.  The Daily Caller  reported of a recent town hall meeting of the Congressman. “I believe there are about 78 or 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party,” West said in response to a question at the event. After a dramatic pause, he added, “it’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”

Kevin Price, Host of the Price of Business and Publisher of the US Daily Review actually covered an event of the Communist Party USA back in the 1980s and stated “there were actually several members of Congress at the event. A couple gave speeches and displayed their membership cards with pride. So hearing that there are members of the party in the Congress today doesn’t surprise me, but the number quoted by West is much more than any could expect.”

So what is the Congressional Progressive Caucus? According to the organization’s website, “Our Caucus members promote a strong, progressive agenda, what we call “The Progressive Promise–Fairness for All”.  The Progressive Promise is rooted in four core principles that embody national priorities and are consistent with the values, needs and aspirations of all the American people, not just the powerful and the privileged.  They reflect a fundamental belief in government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

It’s not “Are There”. It should read “All Democrats Are”.

Do bears poop in the woods? Of course there are.Hell,about 90% of the Massachusetts delegation *alone* is Communist (11 out of 12....soon to be 10 out of 11 assuming Brown is reelected).

Little wonder these a**holes hide their Communist Party membership. Even some of their brain-dead constituents may not like that much.

They should be clamped in irons, IMHO.

You can add Bob Filner (D) California to that list. His father was a member of the Communist Party USA. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between Democrats and Communists.

What do you want me to say?

I stopped calling them democrats a loooong time ago.

I replaced "democrat" with "communist" when Obamacare was passed.

I have no doubt the Congress is rife with them. I`m only surprised at Rep. West`s estimation of 80. I`m thinking it`s far higher.

Yep, sure are.
If it wouldn't be for the Communist and the assorted self serving outright crooks, we'd probably have a House of 20-25 honest members..............Don't think I'm exaggerating at this stage of the *losing our country* game.

THANK YOU!!!! At least somebody up there has the guts to speak the truth.

Every campaign should call the rat opponent what he is...a communist. Repeat it, repeat it, repeat it. Most Americans need to have facts emphasized repeatedly before they begin to grasp it.

Are there socialists/communists in Congress? Yes, they are called Democrats.

Are there enablers of the socialists/communists in the Congress (and the current administration)? Yes, they are called the elite Republican establishment or RINOs for short.

We know the list of these traitorous slime all to well, but too damn few Americans give a care.

We, the Republic, are being denied the choice to say NO to socialism.
It’s a setup.
The fix is in.
We, the Republic, have been loosing a war of financial attrition for decades. We, the Republic are engaged in a war with those who govern us. Drastic measures are required to defeat this enemy in order to stop the bleeding that each of us are seeing in the depreciation of our savings, the constant onslaught of taxes, fees, and licenses. Each of them designed to remove our ability to live free.
If a slave is a person who works for no money, then a paid person who works with no money left for savings or investment is therefore a slave.

The Communists are very good at planning each move, they have been at it for over sixty years, to bury us. They are so close to succeeding. Let’s look at this:
Obamma publicly insults the SCOTUS.
Obamma appoints communist judge.
Obammacare get’s challenged and rejected by SCOTUS.
Obamma propaganda machine tells populaces that the SCOTUS rejected Obammacare, not on grounds, but in spiteful revenge.
Obamma’s OWS crowd demand “justice”.
Riots begin, marshal law declared.
Checkmate-Kruschev.

I have always tried to answer that question, with a question:

Can anyone name a SOLITARY difference, between the Communist Party and the Democrat party?

So far it has been 25 years.

That’s similar to my challenge to “I’m not a communist, I’m a democrat” people.

OK, let’s say the democrats aren’t communists.
Tell me how their policies would be different if they were.

The thing is, communism is abhorrent, and the left knows it, and therefore they deny any association, while at the same time supporting every tenet of the communist agenda.

” - - - Can anyone name a SOLITARY difference, between the Communist Party and the Democrat party?”

Of course I can! What an easy question to answer!

Here is the FUNDAMENTAL difference:

Communists believe in what Karl Marx wrote: “ From each, according to his ability, to each, according to his need.”

Democrats totally reject what Karl Marx wrote, and believe the following guiding principle that they use for ALL of their vote-buying “Entitlement” schemes: “Re-Distribution of Wealth.”

Currently, the collector of wealth is Timmy Gee, the Sheriff of Nottingham at the IRS.

BTW, only 2 days remain before Timmy Gee will be coming to arrest those who are not paying their fair share. Well, except for the 49 % who do not have to re-distribute their wealth. What can be more “Fair” than that?

Every one on that list is a raving, rabid, vicious, vindictive, America-hating, capitalism-hating, Christ-hating, God-hating, decency-hating, liberty-hating, freedom-hating, tyrant-loving COMMUNIST TO THE CORE. They are MORE COMMUNIST than the COMMUNIST PARTY USA.

It is somewhat like comparing rotten apples and rotten oranges.

Both are fruits rotten to the core regardless what some may claim their differences were or superficial differences are now. Time to call a spade a spade.

I think Allen West hit a raw nerve with his recent statement and in my opinion this issue should be taken up and repeatedly driven home by all conservatives. Make the 'progressives' squirm and change their name again.

Reagan unmasked the liberals; now we need to unmask the progressives.

Let "Progressive" be the next dirty word to enter America's lexicon!

But like all communists (or should I say progressives?) marx was a narcissistic liar. He believed that it was his responsibility, to decide who had the “ability” and who had the “need”.

Granted, marx may have been different in that he never had access to a trillion dollars in “stimulus” money.
