Skip to comments.Are there Communists in the US House of Representatives?
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, its 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 doesnt 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 organizations website, Our Caucus members promote a strong, progressive agenda, what we call The Progressive PromiseFairness 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”.
Does a bear sh*t in the woods?
If you have to ask you’re not paying any attention at all.
Paging Joe McCarthy, pick up any Red phone.
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).
Didn’t see your post until after I posted mine.Great minds think alike.
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?
Who said it? Democrat Leaders or the Communist party?
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.
The Democratic party is now the Communist party.
