Clinton Mocks Allen West Calling Democratic Representatives Communists: ĎThis Isnít The 1950sí
Mediaite ^ | June 5, 2012 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 06/05/2012 11:26:01 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Former President Bill Clinton mocked Rep. Allen West (R-FL) at a fundraising event for President Barack Obama on Monday night. Clinton mocked West’s claim that House Democrats were communists – he said that “this isn’t the 1950s” and “no one has seen a communist in over a decade.”

Clinton praised the work that Obama has accomplished in his first term in office and said that he’s had to accomplish the reforms he has instituted amid significant adversity. “He’s had to get all this done while people as recently as last week were still saying he wasn’t born in America,” said Clinton.

Clinton continued by targeting House Republicans, singling out Rep. West who he described as one of the “tea party members.” Clinton became animated when he highlighted Rep. West’s comments where he implied that the House Progressive Caucus were communists.

“This is not the 1950s,” said Clinton. “At least Joe McCarthy could skate on the fact that there was one or two living communists walking around. Nobody’s seen a communist in over a decade.”

Clinton concluded saying that “no criticism [of President Obama by Republicans] was too vicious and too fact-free.”

The 10 PLANKS stated in the Communist Manifesto and some of their American counterparts are...

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
Americans do these with actions such as the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management (Zoning laws are the first step to government property ownership)

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Americans know this as misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
Americans call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Americans call it government seizures, tax liens, Public "law" 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process. Asset forfeiture laws are used by DEA, IRS, ATF etc...).

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation. The Federal Reserve Banks issue Fiat Paper Money and practice economically destructive fractional reserve banking.

6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver's licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
Americans call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture… Thus read "controlled or subsidized" rather than "owned"… This is easily seen in these as well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
Americans call it Minimum Wage and slave labor like dealing with our Most Favored Nation trade partner; i.e. Communist China. We see it in practice via the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
Americans call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136. These provide for forced relocations and forced sterilization programs, like in China.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.
Americans are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, but are actually "government force-tax-funded schools " Even private schools are government regulated. The purpose is to train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education" . These are used so that all children can be indoctrinated and inculcated with the government propaganda, like "majority rules", and "pay your fair share". WHERE are the words "fair share" in the Constitution, Bill of Rights or the Internal Revenue Code (Title 26)?? NO WHERE is "fair share" even suggested !! The philosophical concept of "fair share" comes from the Communist maxim, "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need! This concept is pure socialism. ... America was made the greatest society by its private initiative WORK ETHIC ... Teaching ourselves and others how to "fish" to be self sufficient and produce plenty of EXTRA commodities to if so desired could be shared with others who might be "needy"... Americans have always voluntarily been the MOST generous and charitable society on the planet.

I believe that communism is worse now than in the 50’s. The people just won’t believe it. One day they will wake up. I just hope it’s not to late.

"Nobody’s seen a communist in over a decade."

I didn't realize he's never met Zero or his wife.

Bill is EXACTLY correct - ding! ding! ding!

They are Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Statists, and Obamunists now. Millions of them.

Yeah, Klintoon...

The communists gave up their quest for world domination after the 50’s.

Is that what you’re saying?

I know, I know... you wouldn’t be a communist/socialist/”liberal” if it weren’t for the easy women.

Clinton is a liar. Joe McCarthy was right and there were a lot more Commies than two back then and there's a lot more now than then.

You’d be quite justified in that belief. And Joe McCarthy looks more vindicated every day. Remember this Khrushchev-attributed quote?
We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.
Even if he didn’t say it, that is exactly what happened.

Better watch it, bubb.

West can clean your clock - physically and intellectually.

He’s actually held real jobs.

You haven’t.

Nope, presidential bl*w jobs don’t count.

They may not be reporting by microdot to the kremlin anymore, but they’re still communist traitors.

It’s much worse than the 1950’s. Clinton who lied and cheated his way through his presidency is now the standard of honesty and credibility. Give me a break.

The first 2 years in office Obama had dem control of both the House and Senate - yet he had to “accomplish” things under the extreme adversity of people saying he was not born in America?

Clinton leaves a hint as to why he changed his tune to endorse Obama: the same threats that got him to give up on exposing Obama’s ineligibility in July of 2008 were used now. I imagine it only took two words: Breitbart. Chelsea.

Allen West is right and Joseph McCarthy and the John Birch Society were right too.

The members of the Democrat party who hide behind the progressive label meet Stalin’s definition of “useful idiots
“, by far the most appropriate name of the members of the Democrat Party. The leaders of the Democrat party are simply communists. A label they are too cowardly to accept.
