The Blaze ^ | April 23, 2012 | Billy Hallowell

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has taken intense heat from the media and the left over his statement that there are “78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” In the wake of the controversy that has resulted from his remarks, West, who was slated to be a speaker at an event hosted by the Martin County chapter of the NAACP this past Saturday, was disinvited from addressing the group.

Mediaite has more about the reasons behind the decision to axe the congressman as the event’s keynote speaker:

In Martin County chapter president Jerry Gore‘s own words: “There’s a certain statement he made about Communists.”

“That statement alone,” Gore added. “….We do not represent that type of atmosphere.”

They just can’t stand the truth. Oh well. Col. West doesn’t meds to associate with these thugs anyway.

I guess by “that type of atmosphere” he means an atmosphere in which Communists are identified as Communists.

The NAACP is not relevant. Just having an organization like this is racist. Screw them.

Well, it's been said that the only difference between a commie and a socialist is that the commie KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.

Since our congress if filled with Bawney Fwank and Kookcinich jackasses, it's hardly likely that they'd find too many people in congress who are that smart. In any case, since the NAACP is a racist, socialist, hate group, then maybe it's best he doesn't grace their halls.

Imagine if there were a NAACP that was The National Association for the Advancement of Caucasion People.

Evidently, the NAALCP being a communist, racist organization is insulted by Mr. West’s remarks.

They can give 100 reasons why he was disinvited, but they will never give the real reason.

We all know it.

NAACP is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC.
