This is obviously a mistake. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) is NOT a Socialist!

He's a Communist!

Folks we need to act. They are now trying to “normalize” what would be traitorous affiliations just 10 years ago.

Maxine Waters, Charlie Rangell... gosh, what else do these royal d-bags have in common?

By the way, the list is intentionally incomplete. Some commies are hiding out due to the election in 3 months.

It also does not include all the Marxists in the Obama Regime, such as Carol Brownner and many of the illegal Czars.

Thanks for the post. It’s eye opening.

To be honest, I had thought it would be closer to 200.

70 is still a scandal.

Did they put the name “McCain” in their search engine?

As near as I can tell, there are twelve of them from my state, California.

Embarrassing to say the least...

No, I believe that the DSA would willingly publish all the names of congressional members. I think it is that some of the more politically estute or at risk commies have deliberately chosen not to join because of the inherent political risks.

You've got to wonder when Alcee Hastings and Bobby Scott are not members. And we all know that Nancy Pelugosi is a socialist. Frankly I'm surprised at the small number listed. I would have thought it was closer to 300 or 350.

How sickening. Admitting you're a Socialist (=Communist) is like admitting to Nazi party membership.

The Communists murdered 100 million people in the 20th century.

The last genocide occurred in Cambodia in the aftermath of the retreat from Vietnam, and was the predictable result that people on the Left - many of whom are on this list and were well known even then - said would not happen.

Gulags, concentration camps, the Cultural Revolution, mass murders, mass starvations, monstrous Police States - this is what these people believe in.

Admitting you're a Socialist should be a one way ticket to oblivion.

At some point you just become numb to all this.

I’m not there yet, but nothing surprises me anymore.

There you have it, the usual suspects.

Where’s Nazi Pelosi?

Glad you asked. She resigned from the Congressional Progressive Caucus, an offshoot of the Democratic Socialist of America, upon becoming Speaker of the House.

For those that may have missed her:

If I could have gotten 51 votes…for an outright ban (2d A.), picking up every one of them...I would have done it. - Nancy Pelosi, 1995

Anybody who’s ever dealt with me knows not to mess with me... - Nancy Pelosi, Time Magazine, August, 2006

If we are ever going to protect the American people, we must have an outside independent committee. Quotesandpoems.com

She was a role model for many of us, Speaking of Vivian Hallinan who, along with her husband Vincent, was deeply involved with communist activities via association with several U.S. fronts of the Communist Party, a friendship with Daniel Ortega and relations with Fidel Castro.

Pelosi was a founding member of the Progressive Caucus, which takes in all these mentioned, but resigned when she became Speaker--probably to keep from adverse publicity.

That Pelosi is still a friend and supporter of these anti-American idiots goes without saying.

“This is obviously a mistake. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) is NOT a Socialist!

Same thing. As in “Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics”.

Not far off of that: National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazis)

Combination of the two: Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Harry Reid.

70 is the number of those who are willing to admit they are socialists. I'm sure “closer to 200” is closer to the truth. And that wouldn't even include the big government RINOS and others simply ignorant of the constitution.
