Skip to comments.Allen West Ends Myth Progressives Aren't Extreme
Posted on 04/12/2012 6:40:33 PM PDT by Kaslin
Politics: The left had a fit of the vapors after GOP Rep. Allen West of Florida insinuated that there were boatloads of communists in Congress among Democrats. Well, maybe not, but where there's smoke, there's fire.
Speaking before a town hall in Jensen Beach, Fla., the popular congressman said: "I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the communist party."
A staffer later explained that he was referring to the far-left congressional Progressive Caucus, all of whose members have truly radical pasts.
West's statement ignited a firestorm. How dare he suggest that any of us could possibly be communist?
"Calling fellow members of Congress 'communists' is reminiscent of the days when Joe McCarthy divided Americans with name-calling and modern-day witch hunts," huffed the congressional Progressive Caucus.
Oh, please. Actual party members? Maybe not. But the Caucus is up to its ears in far-left, and yes, genuinely communist politics, feeding off its agenda and belonging to its groups and allies. They know that nobody wants to live under communism, so they mask that extreme agenda as mainstream Democratic Party politics.
Members of the Progressive Caucus have in fact been members or close allies to the hardest of hard-core Marxist groups, from the Democratic Socialists of America, to the New Party, the Committees of Correspondence, and yes, the Communist Party USA itself.
All of these seek to destroy private property, seize the means of production and turn America into a vast prison using democratic institutions to destroy the system from within, just as Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Chile's Salvador Allende did to destroy democracy in their countries. Take a look at the backgrounds some of the eminentos of the Progressive Caucus:

Bring back Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Martin Dies, Hamilton Fish, Robert Stripling and all the other brave and zealous commie-fighters. They exposed the communist bastards in the 20s through 50s before the communist bastards introduced PC and made communism just another “alternative lifestyle” about which we can’t be judgmental. We need heroes like those me to root out this scourge in America that seeks to destroy us (and is doing a pretty good job of it).
When you are directly over the target and hitting it? Well we all know the rest of this analogy.
Please God make Mr West no less than our VP candidate.
You will find all kinds of information on these marxists at www.keywiki.org, search by name and “Democratic Socialists of America”, as well.
Also, you will see the new book written by Trevor Loudon which includes a lot of information on these members of Congress revealing their communist/marxist affiliations.
There are a few old reds in Congress who might be covert members of the Communist Party USA (more likely were in the past), including John Conyers. (Past CPers or hardcore supporters included George Crockett Jr, reportedly Bella Abzug and Shirley Chisholm - evidence not available to the public according to an internal security specialist; Ted Weiss; Hugh DeLacy;the Burton brothers; Don Edwards; Charles O. Porter; Vito Marcantonio; Augustus Hawkins and Parren Mitchell. Ron Dellums was a DSAer, one of the earlier one. His aide, Barbara Lee, is now a member of Congress.
Sen. Alan Cranston was suspected of not only ties to the CPUSA but to Soviet operatives in the Institute for Pacific Relations (and an old CPUSA/Soviet spy ring in the Office of War Information).
The earliest Soviet agent in congress was Rep. Dickstein, bought and paid for by the NKVD :(See: The Haunted Wood, Weinstein and Vassiliev).
Lots more that have never been exposed.
The Verona files proved that Joe McCarthy was right, commie.
List from 2010
There is nothing Honorable about being a communist in the House Of Representatives. So 78 in the House 20 in the Senate and One in the White House no maybe two or three depends if Hilary and Van Jones are there!
Oh, wait -- he wasn't a citizen, that's right.
He was a member of the Communist Parties of Kenya and Indonesia (PKI) instead, I suppose.
I've got a hunch that Mommie was a Commie 'cause her dad was KGB.
I share your enthusiasm for West, but I hope he doesn't get the call.
By tradition and the workings of politics, the VP candidate is always the thrall of the presidential candidate. Only one has even threatened to "go rogue".
That, and prolonged exposure to the Willard fumes, would ruin West -- or ruin his appetite for politics.
Which is exaclty how Alinsky would have a commie respond - belittle and marginalize the enemy so you can be hidden in plain sight.
A queer, a Communist, and a Liar walk into a bar -the Bartender says Good afternoon Mr.President-How did he know
it was the Democrats President Obama?
If Leon Pannetta was closely connected to card carrying communists, it is in no way deluded to say that we have about 80 communists in the House.
And now Neon Leon is head of the CIA. Then we have Obamas open mike NATO ARMS CONFERENCE blooper ( Wait until I am reelected and then I can really sell out the USA!). Who in all hell is asleep at the switch?
Methinks the US COMMUNIST PARTY doth protest too much!
Just check this out:
Back in 1983 he (Pannetta) inserted a tribute into the Congressional Record, recognizing DeLacy and his wife Dorothy, another communist, for their commitment to social justice and resisting the dark forces of McCarthyism. The latter strongly indicates that Panetta was aware of their involvement in the communist cause and that not only did it not matter to him, it was evidence of their courage and bravery.
Trevor Loudon writes, The couple, Hugh DeLacy and his wife Dorothy Baskin DeLacy, both had long histories with the Communist Party USA and were very active in the Santa Cruz progressive movement that had helped nurture Congressman Panettas career. Phrases like social justice and dark forces of McCarthyism rolled from Rep. Panettas pen, in a piece that would not have been out of place in the Communist Partys Peoples Daily World.
He adds, The DeLacys were not merely Panettas constituentsthey were close personal friends. Hugh DeLacy was also a longtime correspondent, with whom Panetta regularly discussed defense and foreign policy issues.
In addition to this evidence, we have congressional hearings, information about a communist cell active in Santa Cruz, and Panettas own record as a member of Congress, where he fought during the 1980s to protect communist advances in such countries as Nicaragua and Grenada and worked feverishly to undermine President Reagans anti-communist foreign policy and military defense build-up. Incidentally, back then Panetta was a foe of CIA covert action to protect Americas vital interests, which makes Obamas selection of him as CIA director even more interesting.
DeLacy was not only a prominent member of the Communist Party USA, but also a personal contact of identified Soviet spies Solomon Adler and Frank Coe and accused spy John Stewart Service.
Courtesy Freeper Fred Nerks:
Panetta’s name used to be on the masthead of the stationery of the Institute for Policy Studies, a Communist front group. I don’t know if he still is.
I don’t know and that is a darned good question. The Dunhams, Frank Marshall, the Ayers’ and the Jarrets too.
Panetta is no longer with the CIA. He’s the Sec. Def. now.
There is a shocker. < /sarc>
The term : “Leftist Extremeist” should accompany the name of every leftist we face:
You can continue with your favorites:
Sorry to be behind. A divorce and an international move have a way of putting one out of touch.
Its much worse than I thought with Panetta as Sec. Def.
Thanks for correcting me Tiger.A divorce and an international move over his last year, had a way of putting me out of touch.
Its even worse than I thought with Panetta as Sec. Def.. He is positioned for Oblama to sell out the nation through destruction of our nukes.
Yes, Panetta has been shifted to Sec. Def. Pretty scary isn't it? Pretty useful to place a minion in as head of the top intelligence org and then make him head of the military no? His inside knowledge and connections must be pretty extensive now.
NY, MA and CA lead with the most, who wooda ever thunk it? ;o)
