Rep. Allen West Says Up To 81 House Members Are Communists

It's not the 1940s or the 1950s, Joe McCarthy is no longer rooting out alleged Soviet-supporters in the Legislature and the country is not entangled in the Cold War, but don't tell Rep. Allen West.



The Florida Republican told a crowd in his home state Tuesday that as many as 81 members of Congress are Communists.

In a clip of the town hall-style event that was posted online Wednesday, an audience member asks, "What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists?"
"I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party," he said in the video.
After a long pause West, a former Army lieutenant colonel, adds, "They actually don't hide it. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."

after you read something like that, how can you ever take ANYTHING he says seriously? A lot on the list are minorities, and almost all have served longer than West.

more on West (or moron West, if you prefer):
While serving in Taji, Iraq, West received information from an intelligence specialist about a reported plot to ambush him and his men.[The alleged plot reportedly involved Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi, a civilian Iraqi police officer.West, who was not responsible for conducting interrogations in Iraq and had never conducted nor witnessed one, had his men detain Hamoodi.In the process of detaining Mr. Hamoodi, soldiers testified that Hamoodi appeared to reach for his weapon and needed to be subdued. Hamoodi was beaten by four soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion on the head and body.West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi's head, after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as "meaningless information induced by fear and pain." At least one of these suspects was arrested as a result, but no plans for attacks or weapons were found. West said "At the time I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received. It's possible that I was wrong about Mr. Hamoodi.

I'll take Mr. West on his worst day over any Democrat in Washington on their best day.

A civilian police officer was beaten and tortured, and then West said he might have been wrong. Party lines aren't relevant.
