High and Stupid doesn't just describe Allen West's Haircut

"There are exactly 57 card-carrying members of the Communist Party in the Department of Defense at this time!" Senator Big John Islein, the Manchurian Candidate (1962)
For Republicans it's always the 1950's*. Women and Minorities were contained and dared not stray from their place. God was added to the currency and to the Pledge of Allegiance and a Republican could belch forth, unto the Nation, a lie about the Red Scare and be assured of Electoral Victory.

Congressman Allen West, who disgraced himself in Iraq has again disgraced himself in the U.S.A. Today, West told his constituents in Florida,
"I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.”
Being in Florida, Allen West should go take a long walk off a short pier.

There are no good Republicans in Congress. Zero. They are beholden to Corporate Behemoths and the Plutocracy. They serve the Rich and harm the American people at every opportunity.

Like the bat-shit crazy Michele Bachmann this is something West heard on the internet. West also lamented,
“I really wish that, standing here before you, was Allen West and President Obama. We could have a simple discussion. But that ain’t ever gonna happen.”

“Why not?” an audience member asked.

“Cuz he was too scared!” West responded.
This I believe. I really do think President Obama was too scared to be close to Allen West. Because, based on Allen West's conviction for war crimes, West would no doubt take a pistol and shoot it at President Obama.

*- except for those pesky Eisenhower Tax Rates with effective Corporate Tax Rates of 52% and a personal income tax rate of 91%.

Excellent Post! Thank You!
Please do as I am going to do - email your Representative in the House and suggest that these communist Representative West claims are communists so that they may be called out for what they are on the floor of the House Of Representatives.
Ask, your House member to provide yo a list of names and the evidence that shows that they are indeed members of the communist party.

I am going to have some fun with this right now with my new congressman down in Evansville. Please allow me to provide a sample script to use.

"Yes sir, I am calling about these communist members of Congress in the House Of Representatives. Listen, nothing is more important to our very democracy than to insure that America's Congress has not been infiltrated by agents of the Kremlin and even the Red Chinese. We must be on guard aaginst this 24/7.
Representative West of Florida has stated that he heard that there were eighty Democrats who are members of the communist party. We The People need to know who these Reds are so that we can vote them out of office. Oh, some evidence that these people are indeed communists is also needed.
But, we must know these names - please email me the list and specific allegations associated with each.

Or something similar.

I am getting on the phone now.

I'm surprised Allen West didn't call them Nazis after all Jonah pant-load Goldberg proved liberal=nazi in his seminal book.

Actually I have it on good authority that there are dozens of Republican
Congressmen who are known extroverts," practice "celibacy" before marriage, engage in "nepotism" with their sisters-in-law, "matriculated" with women in college, and some of them are "practicing homo sapiens who cohort with thespians." Just saying.
