Obama's Socialist Pals US politics

ALLEN WEST: 78-81 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY…….

 

With Obama leading the pack

At a town hall meeting in Jensen Beach, located in the district in which Congressman Allen West will be running for re-election in a new seat (FL-18), West states that, when asked how many members of the Democratic Party are card-carrying Marxist Socialists, that he believes that they are 78-81 members (in Congress) of the Democratic Party who belong to the Communist Party.

UPDATE: Thanks to Weasel Zippers via the Daily Caller:

“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, “it’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”

According to the Palm Beach Post, West merely made the allegation about party membership and then “wouldn’t name names” — something Edson said was also untrue.

“One stupid reporter with a local publication misquoted the entire thing, and they all jumped on one press account without verifying,” said Edson. ”It’s all typical west wing marching orders for their friends in the press.”

“Some people are going to quibble about semantics,” he added. “The real point is these people speak for themselves and if you listen to the words of the progressive caucus it’s clear that these people are opponents of capitalism — they oppose free markets, they oppose individual economic freedom — so you can call them whatever you want — whether they’re socialists or marxists or communists.”

  2. Frank, you obviously haven’t followed the progression of the Democrat Party, especially the Black Congressional Caucus, I’ve documented them participating in communist events, coming from them and espousing their marxist, class-warfare rhetoric. West deals with them face to face, he’s in a better position to assess them than you or I.

  3. Go ahead laugh. But whatever you do, don’t do the research for yourself. Won’t do you any good. Sounds like reality isn’t something you could easily recognize.
