Allen West’s campaign releases its own video of his Communist Party claim about Democrats

by George Bennett | April 12th, 2012

Here’s the 26-second Florida Democratic Party video:

And here’s a longer version posted by West’s campaign:

The Florida Democratic Party circulated a video clip Wednesday of U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, saying he believes there are “about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party.”

The Democratic video ends there, at 27 seconds.

West campaign manager Tim Edson said the Democratic clip “doesn’t show the Congressman’s full remarks where he clearly identified who he was referring to.” West’s campaign released its own 55-second video in which — after a 27-second pause and much audience murmuring — West adds: “No, they actually don’t hide it. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”

For the record, the Congressional Progressive Caucus lists 76 members on its website, including Democratic Florida Reps. Corrine Brown and Frederica Wilson, and calls West’s statement “outrageous.”

Click here for columnist Frank Cerabino’s take.

And read a full transcript of West’s remarks and the Congressional Progressive Caucus’s response after the jump…

From an Allen West campaign “town hall” Tuesday in Jensen Beach:

Moderator (reading question submitted in writing): What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or international Socialists?

West: No, that’s a good question. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party…

(pause of approximately 27 seconds)

…No, they actually don’t hide it. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

From the Congressional Progressive Caucus:

Allen West is denigrating the millions of Americans who voted to elect Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) members, and he is ignoring the oath they took to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution—just like he did. Calling fellow Members of Congress ‘communists’ is reminiscent of the days when Joe McCarthy divided Americans with name-calling and modern-day witch hunts that don’t advance policies to benefit people’s lives.

We hope the people of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District will note that he repeatedly polarizes the American people instead of focusing on their interests. When people like Rep. West have no ideals or principles, they rely on personal attacks. The CPC is proud to stand up for economic equality and civil and human rights for all Americans. Congress is having, and will continue to have, an ongoing debate about job creation, home foreclosuresand the issues that concern working families. But we will not engage in base and childish conversations that lower the high level of discourse Americans rightly expect from their representatives.

  1. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I STARTED THE FB GROUP CALLED

    ALLEN WEST MUST GO!

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/325005804195316/

  2. Rex Says:

    Barbara Boxer has admitted that she was a member of the communist party.
    So you can pretty much bet that everyone that has the same views as her are also in.
    Most of them will not admit it.

  3. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Rex believes anything a corporation says. Oooh, the commies the commies! LOL!

    Meanwhile, ALLEN WEST wants to put the Capital Gains tax rate at….. ZERO percent.

    In other words, if I own 30,000 shares of stock in some company and that earns me a dividend of $20,000,000 per year, Allen West thinks that we should NOT tax that money.

    So let’s say I earn that $20M per year. It goes into the bank and earns even more interest. The extremely wealthy can put all their assets into stocks and bonds and not only NEVER work again a day in their life, but never pay TAXES again in their life. While continuing to make millions upon millions of dollars TAX FREE.

    This is what Allen West wants.

    Why?

    No idea.

    Something about job creators.

    And evil “Commies”.

    Such a pathetic joke on this state and on the people of America.

  4. Bill Perry Says:

    I need facts. Without facts, these are nothing. He “believes” that about 80 democrats are members of the communist party and judging from statements that this man has made in the past,this is nothing but bomb throwing.

  5. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Bill Perry,

    In my humble opinion, you are correct to ask for facts.

    The fact is, there are no facts here. He is explicitly referring to elected Democrats as “Commies”.

    It is senseless political fear-mongering the likes of which we haven’t seen since McCarthyism.

    There is also a fake list going around conservative/Tea Party circles via email that was published on a website that no longer exists. The “list” is, like the 79-81 people West was referring to, a list of progressive Democrats who were duly-elected by their constituents. There are zero Communists in the Democratic Party. Zero.

    Again, this is simply a disgusting distraction from Allen West’s policies, which, sadly, are grotesquely balanced to support the already extremely wealthy at the EXPENSE of the shrinking (decimated) Middle Class in America.

    Please tell your friends not to listen to this junk anymore and to stand up for the Middle Class in November by voting for Democrats.

  6. Fact checker Says:

    Uh, Allen West is right. The Congressional Progressive Caucus is allied with the Communists. As of 2010, 70 of these members are also members of the Democrat Socialist of America. Look it up, folks. Its there for the taking.

    Facts are stubborn things, Cerabino!

  7. Downtown Danny Says:

    Barbara Boxer NEVER “admitted” to being in the communist party. A socialist is not a communist – they are two different things.
    ALLEN WEST IS NOT FIT FOR ANY PUBLIC OFFICE – NOR IS HE FIT FOR MILITARY SERVICE – They’ve already kicked him out.

  8. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    See what I’m saying about people distributing a fake list?

    I referenced the 2010 list in my post at 12:52pm.

    That “list” is a fake.

    It comes from a website called AmericanSocialistVoter.com… Want to see what’s happening lately at that website? Check it out:

    http://www.americansocialistvoter.com

    Yeah. Nothing there but a placeholder.

    The list from 2010 is a complete scam that is being perpetrated via email and right wing blogs, with NO fact-checking and NO verification whatsoever. The “list” is a list of duly-elected DEMOCRATS that was pasted into a document and dressed up as being “socialists” or whatever, but again, these are DEMOCRATS who were voted into office by DEMOCRATS. It is an obvious fake.

    And the right wing falls for it every single time.

    Don’t trust them.

    And don’t fall for the DISTRACTION.

    The REAL issue is that Allen West supports right wing policies that would effectively END the federal government as we know it. END Medicare. END the EPA. END Pell Grants. END scientific research. END medical research on Alzheimer’s Disease etc. END research on new forms of energy. END the government as we know it and END the benefits to society that the research would bring.

    Shame on the GOP — shame on ALLEN WEST — and their pathetic corporate propaganda!

  9. Mike Says:

    Paging Sen McCarthy, Sen. McCarthy please report to Rep. West’s office please.

  10. Brian Says:

    No need to page McCarthy. He’s here. West’s statement proves reincarnation is a fact. Why else would someone repeat the same mistakes as that drunken Senator did more than 50 years ago.

  11. Searcher Says:

    So, the ReTHUGlicans are now turning to the McCarthy playbook to accuse lawmakers of being Communists. Another DESPERATE grandstanding political LIE!

  12. Martin County Indie Says:

    Here is a troubling fact, he is now in Martin County. Do you know how many “Staunch Republicans” live up here? These are the very same idiots that believe everything Fox News says and what the Tea Party says. This guy was cheered by a bunch of Bible Thumping hypocrite conservatives. The very ones that will pray for you on Sunday, turn around and F**K you on Monday.
    This guy is a joke along with his TP mutants.
    Vote Sheriff Crowder, send this F’n joke away. By the way, where did he establish residency? Haven’t seen that news blurb yet.

  13. Pedro Escallon Says:

    I agree fully. I even venture to say that our current president Obama is also aligned with the communist party.

  14. Cranky Yankee Says:

    Notice the scripted question to set up West’s comments. As for Rex and his mindless “Barbara Boxer has admitted that she was a member of the communist party.” Note the word WAS. I doubt that she ever said that, but even if she did, different political parties are NOT AGAINST THE LAW in this country. When they become against the law, then you can kiss your democracy/constitutional republic goodbye.

  15. steve Says:

    Allen West must be suffering from brain injury

  16. L. Ottoson Says:

    I am disgusted at the total misrepresentation of Allen West’s answer to my question at the Town Hall Meeting in Jensen Beach on Tuesday.A question which was in o way “scripted.”

    The so called ‘reporter’ should be fired for comments completely out of context.Unfortunately journalism is no longer an honorable profession but has become for the most part the right arm of the Marxist’s who would destroy everything this country stands for.
    It is amazing and utterly disgusting that people can no longer ask a question or state their opinions without the left wing media making ah hysterical mountain out of a molehill.
    Frankly, the response of the public and journalists can only be construed to prove the depth of the marxist infiltration and indoctrination in our formerly “Free” society.

  17. Bob W. Says:

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck!!! I don’t see much difference between socialists, communists, and progressives. They are all opposed to the Constitution, and the American way of life. Hey, didn’t USSR stand for “Union of SOCIALIST Soviet Republics”?? Of course logic and common sense mean nothing to the left wing haters. Let’s see what sort of moronic replies I will now receive.

  18. Independent Voter Says:

    Funny, I thought USA stood for “freedom” – freedom to be communist if one chooses, free to vote for communists if one chooses.

    All I see are posts from haters trying to deny Americans their freedom.

    Looks like the party of “no” is actually the party of “no freedom for Americans”.

    BOTH parties are doing their best to DESTROY AMERICA. It’s time for the party system manipulations and the electoral college BS to END. Shame on ALL of you!

    For those whipping out that old “socialist” nonsense – I expect you hypocrites will be turning down that Socialist Security check then, and the socialist Medicare benefits, and the special socialist tax statuses for being old, blind, married, etc. or my personal fav – the EIC. People who have kids should be paying MORE since they use more resources, not getting out of paying taxes altogether via the EIC.

  19. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    FYI –

    The post by L. Ottoson is being copied and pasted on various blogs.

    The right wing bloggers obviously can’t come up with their own rationale why someone would lie to their own constituents, so they have Daddy RNC do it FOR THEM.

    All you need to know about this whole thing:

    ***Allen West lies to his constituents.***

  20. Reverend Mikey Says:

    Bob W. – just because you won’t take the time to learn the differences between progressive, socialist, and communist doesn’t mean that there are no differences.

    If I said that Republicans act like fascists, that doesn’t mean that they ARE fascists.

    Get it?

  23. Bob W. Says:

    @ Reverend Mikey… I guess that I must’ve slept through all of those college history courses. The difference between the catagories is only a matter of degree and definition. Also, please remember that the prototype fascists referred to them selves as “National SOCIALISTS”. Get it?

  24. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Bob, you are a victim of a scam. Nobody’s a socialist or a commie. The list going around is a fake. See my post at 1:49pm above.

    Try thinking for yourself next time.

  25. Don Fleet Walker Says:

    Allen West is a card carrying NUT!

  26. Bob W. Says:

    @ A.W. M. G. Huh? A party line parrot telling me to think for myself? I judge people by their actions, not their words and labels. Try it sometime.

  27. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Any comments on the “commie” scam you fell for?

  28. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    My guess is no. You won’t comment on the fact that you have fallen for yet another right wing conspiracy scam. Too big a coward.

  29. Bob W. Says:

    @ A.W.M.G… What “‘commie’ scam” are you babbling about? You just proved my point about your kind, with your childish name calling.

  30. Bob W. Says:

    Trying to debate with a progressive is like playing chess with a pigeon. It’ll knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and then strut around as if it won the game.

  31. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Are you really this dense?

    THE SUBJECT OF THIS ARTICLE, NIMROD!

    Allen West’s list of 79-81 “Communists” in the Democratic Party.

    I posted something to you about it at 6:06pm and you responded to me. But you apparently didn’t even read what I wrote!

    God it is unbearable how stupid you people are.

  32. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Read my post at 1:49pm and get back to me or stay stupid for all I care.

  33. Bob W. Says:

    I doubt that someone who resorts to calling people ‘stupid’, ‘nimrod’, and ‘coward’, really has anything worthwhile to offer. Sorry, just considering the source.

  34. Rider I Says:

    Not really my friend in California Alone the majority of Democrats voted to allow Communist into government work. Which is like allowing Nazi’s into work. So why would a Republican denounce the issue. California is one of the only states that has voted for Communist Party members to be allowed into government work. Even though, they moto is to destroy Democracy and implement a German Socialist Hitler, Maoist, Stalinist, mono party type rule. California Democratic legislatures have been linked to the worlds biggest devastating legislation that has destroyed the West. From the savings and loans, to the .com to the mortgage legislation that all forced directed a whole nation into the service industry. So our production and export industries where destroyed. While the service union leader who no longer believes in a bipartisan Union, is funded by the Communist Chinese to keep placing service legislation as our main legislative economic direction. So not that hard to see that there are at least 80 Democratic Congressional folks who are Communist, as alone in California they voted to allow economic terrorist that admit to wishing to economically terrorize the US into government positions. Being part of Al Queada who wishes to economically destroy the USA, Part of the Nazi Party or the Communist Party is no longer a fire-able offense. Being part of a political party that wishes to destroy the US and preaches destruction of Democracy is not a fireable offense. http://www.cpusa.org/communist-party-membership-no-longer-a-fireable-offence-in-california/ In US history there has been more Communist terrorism and more US wars against Communist wish to create Hitler, Stalinist, Maoist regimes in the world than any other organization.

  35. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    They want the government to dictate to corporations. Check.

    They want further and further restrictions on your rights. Check.

    They want a high percentage of economic activity to be funneled thru the government agencies. Check.

    They want to have the government spy on you. Check.

  38. DILLIGAF Says:

    @ Bob W

    “prototype fascists referred to them selves as “National SOCIALISTS”. Get it?”

    Yeah I get it. You really did sleep thru those classes. Fascism and socialism are enemies of each other and have almost nothing in common. You guys throw around these words like socialist, communism, fascist, but you have no idea what these words really mean or actually stand for.
    YEAH! We Get It!

    Like this clown Rider l talking about
    “a German Socialist Hitler,” etc. Hitler hated socialism and outlawed it. Guy has no clue what he is babbling about, just parroting garbage someone told him.
    “In US history there has been more Communist terrorism” NAME ONE Instance!!!

    ” Being part of a political party that wishes to destroy the US and preaches destruction of Democracy is not a fireable offense.”
    I guess we can’t fire the Republicans then can we?

  39. L. Ottoson Says:

    Dilligaf you have really exposed your complete and total ignorance in your attack against others.
    The NAZI Party was Germany’s National Socialist Party headed by Adolf Hitler

    Mussolini was a Fascist and partner of Hitler until he was deposed and Italy joined the Allies.So much for being Enemies!

    It seems YOU were the one asleep in those classes.

    Carl Marx, The Communist Manifesto, The Socialist State, The New World Order….are just a few of the suggested reading topics for you in order to understand what you know absolutely nothing about by your own words!

    “”"allen west is not going ANYWHERE!!.”"”

    LOL!

    Actually, yes he is.

    He was run out of FL-22 on a rail because he is hated so much here in this district. Now that he is the laughingstock of the Republican Party, he is probably going to be just another unemployed former congressman.

  45. kelly Says:

    Go West!? No, West go. Because you have shown that you are not willing to work with your colleagues. How do you expect to accomplish anything after you called your co-workers communists? You are not a team player…but a tea partyer. Your way or the highway hasn’t worked. Go find another line of work.

  46. RG3 Says:

    “individual economic freedom”? For who Mr. West? The people who profit off disease and death and call it “the hospital”? Ayn Rand’s “Objective Truth” only works for the elites who need to use fear to maintain their power. In West’s view the uneducated masses should stay that way lest they cut away at the ruling classes power and profit. They don’t want the truth about SUGAR, for example, to get out, then their disease profiteering can continue unimpeded.
    West will say it’s because of a “lack of exercise” and what is indicative of these remarks, as the remarks of a totalitarian fascist, is to Blame the Victim. Someone loaded up on SUGAR cannot exercise Mr. West, but you don’t care about that now do you?
    So how many totalitarian fascists are in the GOP Mr. West? We want names please…

  47. fazsha Says:

    RG3: you say “they” don’t want the truth about sugar to get out. So what; no one forces you to eat sugar, but progressives would sure like to force you NOT to eat it.

    I don’t know why you’re complaining about hospitals. Sure they profit, just like any other outfit that provides a service, like lawyers. You’re not going to get away with NOT dying.

    Libertarians are for free enterprise and liberty. Republicans and Democrats are for restrictions on liberty and big government and taxes and socialized debt.

  48. Bob W. Says:

    Could RG3 please explain to us the difference between a ‘totalitarian fascist’, and a totalitarian communist? Furthermore, is he able to do it i a civil manner, without resorting to childish name calling, unlike Ms. Alan West Must Go?

  49. chris Says:

    Hey RG3 wannabe….man up and quit looking for the government to baby sit you! Make your own wise choices in life and quit blaming others for any short comings you may have.

    WOW!

    The minimum wage boiler room trolls are really crankin ‘em out today –pumping out the stock knee-jerk vitriol in quantity for Obama and the other socialists.

    But then it is Friday and I am guessing today’s spiff is $12 rather than the usual $10 for the most posts.

    That is certainly something to shoot for since it means a bucket of six beers rather five while commiserating with colleagues after work.

  51. Same Ole, Same Ole Says:

    Dear Fellow Conservative,

    You know I am not afraid to speak the truth.

    That’s why I’m the number one target of liberals and their friends in the media who are going completely nuts about my comments at a recent Townhall meeting. I need your help to fight back and stand up against the corrupt liberal media as they attempt cover for their left-wing allies.

    In response to a question about Marxists in Congress, I called out the Congressional Progressive Caucus for their extreme left-wing positions.
    The Progressive Caucus advocates for state control over industries, redistribution of wealth, reduced individual economic freedom, and the destruction of free markets. Members of this Caucus lavished praise on Fidel Castro following a 2009 visit to Cuba.

    They have even introduced a constitutional amendment to redistribute wealth.

    You can call them whatever you want, but their point is, they oppose free markets and individual economic freedom, they are determined to empower government to redistribute wealth, and they want to see the nation fundamentally transformed. Their policies are destructive and I will stand up to them regardless of the critics.

    We’re in the fight for the heart and soul of our nation. It’s a fight we can win, but we must all be involved. Please stand with me by making a contribution today.

    Thank you.
    Steadfast and loyal,

    Unbelievable! Talk about pure unexpurgated divisiveness.

  54. ALLEN WEST MUST GO Says:

    Yeah, how DARE President Obama recognize African American History Month with a message to the African-American community!!!

    Bob W,

    In case you don’t know, the reason there is an African American History Month is because African American history was suppressed and ignored for more than 200 years because white society deemed them inferior and unworthy.

    You know… the whole slavery thing.

    You are aware of our country’s history of slavery, right?

    You are aware of the history of black oppression in the United States, right?

    Or no… that news hasn’t reached you yet.

  55. Jay S Says:

    I note in Rep. West’s statement above that he does not repeat his charge that CPC members are in the Communist party. Instead, he weasels around it with “you can call them whatever you want.” But you didn’t, Rep. West. You definitively cited them as members of one of the most vile movements in political history, one that killed millions in other nations, and one that vies with Nazism in its cruelty. Now you don’t have the courage to repeat that charge. It speaks to your lack of integrity and deficit of honor. And the fact that you don’t have enough belief in your own statement to repeat it here. We don’t need people like that to represent us in Congress. Do the right thing and resign effective immediately.

  56. Bob W. Says:

    @ A. W. M. G…… You Ma’am, are delusional!! Nowhere, and in no way, did I refer to anything about about anyone’s history month, any ethnic groups, etc. I have an issue with totalitarian philosophies, and the sophomoric, politically correct, Kool-Aid drinkers that espouse them.

    Bob W,

    You obviously have a problem with reading comprehension.

    I was simply letting you know why Obama directed his campaign video towards the black community. It’s because he appreciates the black community and that community’s history, which includes slavery.

    Do you have a problem understanding that?

    Should I use smaller words?

    Rep. Allen West is as toxic as the Union Carbide plant in Bhopal, India. I don’t know what kind of mental deficients voted this maniac into office but they need help. Like the Dow chemical poisons that are STILL killing children in India, West spreads his infectious hate speech and tilted propaganda. Like some right-wing nutcase straight out of the 50’s McCarthy Era, West is pointing fingers placing the Communist label on his fellow Americans.

    This very ignorant man doesn’t even realize the Republican Party he belongs to had a huge role in selling out the American worker to the Communist Chinese just so a bunch of silver spoon trust fund babies could make more money from Asian slave labor and easy toxic waste dumping. West pays no mind to reports that the Chinese government has been working against the American dollar since the start of the War in Iraq in 2003. (See Keiser Report on the news network RT, April 13/14, 2012)

    West takes pleasure in his taunting Progressives hoping they say thing like he resembles a piece of s*** with a MC Hammer haircut. But I’m going to stick to the facts. I am somebody who fights against right wing nutcases spoact.blogspot.com

    This country has been in denial for some time. It is so obvious, but hidden by the Democrats, unions and the press. It presents in USA is easily traceable up until WWII, then went stealth: Six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President Norman M. Thomas in a 1944 speech said, “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say, “I no longer need to run as a Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”

    POLITICAL LABELS

    “Democrat”, “Republican”,
    The parties of the system;
    Puppets both, for sale their votes,
    No character or wisdom.

    “Liberal”, “Conservative”,
    For change or status quo?
    Pick either one, the change is none,
    All charlatans and whores.

    Far “Left” we place the Anarchists,
    Libertarians claim far “Right”;
    Yet both decry the government:
    False continuum brought to light.

    For oil, “We” bomb their mud huts,
    Strip them bare, then offer “Aid”;
    And fake their retribution as
    Pretext – a false flag raised.

    Unarmed hundred thousands killed
    By weapons of “Defense”,
    While rights are lost for “Freedom” sake -
    On profit, all depends.

    With stroke of pen, the “Patriot” Act,
    And patriots’ gifts are taken;
    Then “Citizens United” leaves
    Our citizens forsaken.

    We protest loss of liberties,
    Put “World Wide Web” to use;
    Cloudmark Authority censors us
    For “messaging abuse”.

    They label us to finger-point,
    With labels, “They” deride us;
    Their labels keep us all at bay,
    For with labels, “They” divide us.

    Our Kleptocracy*-controlled media focuses on America’s two-year election cycles as if who wins or loses in the swinging of the pendulum was a matter of life or death, when in fact even at the Presidential level it makes no more difference than the outcomes of Monday Night Football, American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, Hillbilly Handfishing or the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor. U.S. elections are staged primarily to give Sheeple the illusion of control so they will (a) vent their frustrations and expend their energy, emotions and resources supporting or attacking the Puppet on the Left hand or the Puppet on the Right, and consequently (b) never recognize and challenge the common omnipotent Puppetmaster.

    *Kleptocracy [klep-TOK-ruh-see]: A government or state in which those in power exploit national resources and steal; rule by a thief or thieves. See also the United States of America where, as Goethe said, “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

    The sad truth is, Amerika has been a Fascist Police State for many years. Some trace it back to the passage of the USA Patriot Act that became law on 26 October 2001 in response to the “attacks of 9/11″. This was a sweepingly complex piece of rights-removing legislation – more than 68,000 words long – that was supposedly drafted from scratch by somebody, sponsored by Kotex King Jim Sensenbrenner, waltzed through Congress, and then signed by Bush 2 in barely six weeks…

    What exactly is the difference between progressive Democrats and the CPUSA ? At least one CPUSA member suggests that the CPUSA sometimes votes to the right of the Progressives. http://www.cpusa.org/convention-discussion-what-s-the-difference-between-the-cpusa-and-progressive-democrats/

    It is very true and factual that members of this Leftist organization with ideological ties to Marx, Engles for economic justice and Government control visited Cuba and praised Fidel Castro- a brutal dictator with the blood of thousands on his hands is clearly a sign of the lack of Human rights this group claims to embrace and exemplifies their true beliefs both ideologically and in their hearts. Truly individuals whose views for this country are contrary to a Constitutional Republic which this country is not a Democracy.

    Not really my friend in California Alone the majority of Democrats voted to allow Communist into government work. Which is like allowing Nazi’s into work. So why would a Republican denounce the issue. California is one of the only states that has voted for Communist Party members to be allowed into government work. Even though, they moto is to destroy Democracy and implement a German Socialist Hitler, Maoist, Stalinist, mono party type rule. California Democratic legislatures have been linked to the worlds biggest devastating legislation that has destroyed the West. From the savings and loans, to the .com to the mortgage legislation that all forced directed a whole nation into the service industry. So our production and export industries where destroyed. While the service union leader who no longer believes in a bipartisan Union, is funded by the Communist Chinese to keep placing service legislation as our main legislative economic direction. So not that hard to see that there are at least 80 Democratic Congressional folks who are Communist, as alone in California they voted to allow economic terrorist that admit to wishing to economically terrorize the US into government positions. Being part of Al Queada who wishes to economically destroy the USA, Part of the Nazi Party or the Communist Party is no longer a fire-able offense. Being part of a political party that wishes to destroy the US and preaches destruction of Democracy is not a fireable offense. http://www.cpusa.org/communist-party-membership-no-longer-a-fireable-offence-in-california/ In US history there has been more Communist terrorism and more US wars against Communist wish to create Hitler, Stalinist, Maoist regimes in the world than any other organization.
