Allen West Claims 80 House Democrats Are Communists
Matt | On 11, Apr 2012
Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is up to his usual fringe antics this week.
The conservative congressman has been in the spotlight recently because his name is floating as a potential vice presidential pick on the GOP ticket. The extra attention has only cast a stronger lighter on how radical this guy is.
On Tuesday at a local event for constituents, West showed that eyebrow-raising side again. He publicly stated that he “has heard” that at least 80 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are members of the Communist Party.
Of course, Rep. West would not name names. What in the hell?!
First off, where would he get that kind of information? How does it add value to the discussion he claims people want to have about the economy and how horrible he thinks President Obama is doing?
That’s a pretty serious accusation to call someone a Communist, if you ask me. Rep. West is entitled to his opinion, but I find it mighty funny that he cannot provide any factual evidence.
No matter the party affiliation, it would be more helpful for West and others to focus on real issues facing Americans instead of this childish name-calling.
