Romney/West 1956

WASHINGTON -- As many as 80 House Democrats are communists, according to Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he's "heard" that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. West wouldn't elaborate beyond that, however, and didn't offer up any names. There are currently 190 House Democrats.

A request for comment from West's spokeswoman was not immediately returned.

He has a lot of good positions on issues, and has done a pretty good job of representing me. But in life, it takes a thousand "attaboys" to make up for one "oh shit" and this ain't his first "oh shit."

Don't communists make most of our boats? J, Corsair, Gunboat, etc?

Don't they make our ipads, iphones, computers and most everything else?

It sounds like it may be a good thing for our economy if lots of Congress were hard workers and optimists like those "producers" we so need.

Barney Frank chimes in with this:

"Not even Joe McCarthy would have said anything so stupid and dissociated from reality," Frank said in a call with The Huffington Post. "It's an indication of the significant deterioration of the Republican Party as a responsible entity that an ignorant, mean guy like Allen West is considered one of their stars."

So, then, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, etc. etc....ALL COMMUNIST?

I consider myself a Social Democrat myself. That's a LONG way from communist. It would be like saying every rightie was a complete Fascist...

You guys are big into the whole character assassination thing. When you can't win by votes or issues, I guess you'll stoop to any level. Sad, really.

Here's the story from his spokesperson...
"The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies.

So if some group calls you a friend, you automatically become that group?

Ah, so when the Aryans say the Tea Party are their people , that means all Republicans who associate with the baggerz are white power KKK members?

If Charley Mason likes Dick Cheney, what does that mean?

This stuff really gives me a chuckle. Our business leaders and economy is 100% relying on COMMUNIST CHINA and now the righties are trying to claim the people who hold us up on their shoulders are The Devil? You could not make this stuff up.....

Yeah, and Mitt Romney's father in-law is a Mormon, too. Tell me NGS - is the word "gullible" in the dictionary, because I couldn't find it.

I went to check out that link from the scribd.com article, to find out when exactly these 70 people joined the socialist party, because it really doesn't seem likely to me.

The link goes to an unregistered domain.

So I googled "American Socialist Voter" and all I got were hits on this story in the right wing blogosphere. There is not web site or link that corresponds to the reported article. No such organization/

So I went to the Democratic Socialists of America web site and pulled up the 4th quarter 2009 newsletter (there is no "October") and looked. Nothing there either.

So I poked around the DSA web site - if they had 70 members of Congress in their ranks openly, you'd think they'd be all listed on the web site right? Um...nope.

So I have to ask you NGS - do you have something outside of the right wing blogosphere that confirms this?

Because when I do a Fact Check on this I get some other info:

http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2011/sep/05/blog-posting/bloggers-say-two-texas-democrats-among-socialists-/


Like it didn't happen, there is no "Socialist Caucus" and that list is the "Progressive Caucus", which is a legitimate caucus that has nothing to do with the Socialist Party. Which hasn't existed in decades BTW.

That is the link I went to. IT worked, but none of the links in the uploaded article worked.

In fact, the only linkk that DID work is the link to the Progressive Caucus site, where the list came from. Which proves the "Socialist Caucus" stuff is garbage.

Scribd.com is NOT an authoritative site, it's a document repository. Someone uploaded a stinking pile of crap up there, no one checks it.

Sorry Nanny, but your story is proven bullshit.

A communist is just a socialist in a hurry. And don't worry, there are plenty of them in the Democrap Party.


That is the link I went to. IT worked, but none of the links in the uploaded article worked.

In fact, the only linkk that DID work is the link to the Progressive Caucus site, where the list came from. Which proves the "Socialist Caucus" stuff is garbage.

Scribd.com is NOT an authoritative site, it's a document repository. Someone uploaded a stinking pile of crap up there, no one checks it.

Sorry Nanny, but your story is proven bullshit.


Well, good on ya for doing the homework. If the newsletter and story is bogus, I'll admit it and eat a little crow sandwich. I was wrong once before, so it's possible.

So, then, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, etc. etc....ALL COMMUNIST?

I consider myself a Social Democrat myself. That's a LONG way from communist. It would be like saying every rightie was a complete Fascist...

You guys are big into the whole character assassination thing. When you can't win by votes or issues, I guess you'll stoop to any level. Sad, really.


Draw a horizontal line

label it like this

Left-------------------------------|--------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------Right
Communist/socialist-------------liberal------------------------------------conservative----------------Very conservative/evangelical
--------------------------------Democrat------------------------------------Republican----------------------------------------------



Fascist, libertarian, moderate, anarchist and Happy Jack are not on any line. They each occupy a different point in a multidimensional space.

Romney/West 1956

WASHINGTON -- As many as 80 House Democrats are communists, according to Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he's "heard" that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. West wouldn't elaborate beyond that, however, and didn't offer up any names. There are currently 190 House Democrats.

A request for comment from West's spokeswoman was not immediately returned.

Actually, there's 70, and they're socialists, not exactly communists but you really can't be sure.


Sort of like Climate Denialists being "not quite racists", eh?


So, maybe you are not quite a racist, but you are just like one, holding views "that must be recognized and treated."

Even the Communist Party U.S.A. rejects Allen West's ridiculous claims.

Politico


"A top official of the Communist Party USA on Wednesday ripped Rep. Allen West’s “sad ploy” for claiming that as many as 80 Democratic members of the House are communists.

“I just think it’s an absurd way to cast a shadow over his colleagues. It’s kind of a sad ploy,” Libero Della Piana, a vice-chairman of the national Communist Party, said of the Florida Republican’s charge that about 80 House Democrats were members of the radical party.

“It’s just guilt by association taken to an extreme,” he told POLITICO. He also said there are no members of Congress who are members of the Communist Party – not even avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

“I think it’s just absurd,” Della Piana said.

In a video clip of the event posted Wednesday, West was responding a question from a constituent asking “What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists?”

The possibility that you are not a piece of dogshit is vanishingly close to zero. It is depressing that there are such fuck head assholes like you posting on this site.

Norgaard did indeed recommend that climate denialism be treated as an illness and did equate skepticism with racism. http://www.examiner....sm-with-racism. Look it up. This is commie style re-education rhetoric if there ever was such.

It is also true, beyond a shadow of doubt, that the modern democrat party is dominated by a far left ideology with socialist views, socialist individuals (whether listed or not) and socialist plans, and is headed by the most radical leftist politician who has ever held office in this country. If there is a hair's breadth difference between the modern Democrat Party and Communist Party USA, I do not know what that is. Visit the CPUSA website and see if you can tell the difference.

Obama is a Marxist. His parents were Marxists, his mentor, Frank Marshal Davis was a Marxist, Bill Ayers (who launched Oboomba's political campaign and ghost wrote Dreams of My Father) is a Marxist and so were half of his Czars. His radical origins are beyond doubt. see here and here. Cloward-Piven is in full swing and the results are around us everyday. The American people better figure it out or we will not recognize the country we once knew in a few years. Alan West is right, if not in letter, at least in spirit. We are at a crossroads in the country, a "choice of two futures", and this election is critical. Liberty or tyranny. You choose.

America's political system, broken though it may be, is working the way its designers intended to the degree that it biases everything toward the center. America has never elected a right-wing or left-wing President. Obama is, by any sane analysis, dead center or center-right.

Three years into a presidency I tend to judge a President's ideology based on his actions in office, rather than on what his parents, his teachers, or his mentors may or may not have said or written. But then again, that's just me with my stupid, fact-based approach to life.

Yeah, I do believe it. Obama is taking us in one direction as rapidly as he can, toward a radical socialist totalitarian future. The 60s radicals are in charge now, something they have craved for years, and thatt is not the center, not even close. It is the far left edge that seeks a new America formulated along statist lines, a planned economy with forced equality of outcome run by a centralized elite, always for our own good (and for the children). Obama and the radicals who seek this socialist re-making of America also, unfortunately, believe it is their right to do this by any means necessary. (You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet after all.) And if that entails a little voter fraud along the way, Alinsky-inspired deceit or trampling of that outmoded Constitution, so be it. Like I said, wake up.

If Charley Mason likes Dick Cheney, what does that mean?

This stuff really gives me a chuckle. Our business leaders and economy is 100% relying on COMMUNIST CHINA and now the righties are trying to claim the people who hold us up on their shoulders are The Devil? You could not make this stuff up.....

Pardon me, and anyone else who is onto your schtick, but the breath-holding in anticipation of you actually "manning up" would be foolish.

You could be buried under scores of sources far more credible which clearly demonstrate your position is without merit. In response, you'll just post insipid charts to defend your indefensible position.

Personally, I like radicals who are "for the people". What I can't stand is radicals who like fucking up the air, water, etc........

And ANY radical would be good to be well read. People who are not well read can be very dangerous.

A communist is just a socialist in a hurry. And don't worry, there are plenty of them in the Democrap Party.


That is the link I went to. IT worked, but none of the links in the uploaded article worked.

In fact, the only linkk that DID work is the link to the Progressive Caucus site, where the list came from. Which proves the "Socialist Caucus" stuff is garbage.

Scribd.com is NOT an authoritative site, it's a document repository. Someone uploaded a stinking pile of crap up there, no one checks it.

Sorry Nanny, but your story is proven bullshit.


Well, good on ya for doing the homework. If the newsletter and story is bogus, I'll admit it and eat a little crow sandwich. I was wrong once before, so it's possible.


Pardon me, and anyone else who is onto your schtick, but the breath-holding in anticipation of you actually "manning up" would be foolish.

You could be buried under scores of sources far more credible which clearly demonstrate your position is without merit. In response, you'll just post insipid charts to defend your indefensible position.

Go ahead, prove me wrong.

Creating a new identity when the other team gets the White House means never having to say you're sorry.

Good Lord, NGS, do you actually believe the stuff you write here?

America's political system, broken though it may be, is working the way its designers intended to the degree that it biases everything toward the center. America has never elected a right-wing or left-wing President. Obama is, by any sane analysis, dead center or center-right.


Yeah, I do believe it. Obama is taking us in one direction as rapidly as he can, toward a radical socialist totalitarian future. The 60s radicals are in charge now, something they have craved for years, and thatt is not the center, not even close. It is the far left edge that seeks a new America formulated along statist lines, a planned economy with forced equality of outcome run by a centralized elite, always for our own good (and for the children). Obama and the radicals who seek this socialist re-making of America also, unfortunately, believe it is their right to do this by any means necessary. (You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet after all.) And if that entails a little voter fraud along the way, Alinsky-inspired deceit or trampling of that outmoded Constitution, so be it. Like I said, wake up.


You really make it difficult for me to figure out if you are stunningly gullible and paranoid, wildly ignorant and paranoid, or just batshit crazy.

There's a real wild outlier that says you're having us all on since a functional adult really couldn't be this...goofy...but I'd put $100 on my Bengals to win the next Super Bowl before I put a nickel down on that flyer. 'Cause we really don't know how "high functioning" you really are.

First, I agree with BJ that my source was wrong. I already said that. But Allen West is also correct about where a lot of congressional democrats fall on the scale. They may not call themselves Communists or Socialists for various reasons, but there is no question that is where their sympathies lie and it is the path toward collectivism they would have us take. Obamacare would not be the end of it, believe me.


Second, there is nothing outlandish about my positions. I have libertarian-conservative beliefs which are shared by many Americans. I believe in defending the Constitution, in defending our free market economy and protecting our hard won liberties. Those liberties, values and traditions are under assault today, sometimes from the Right, I admit, but always and everyday from the Left.

I do believe what I have said about Obama and his crowd of far left ideologues who have come to power. Bill Ayers said the other day that he gets up every morning with the hope of ending capitalism.. I think Obama shares in that dream. I think that is what he is about, and that is why this upcoming election is so important to the future of this country and our democracy. A lot of people died to protect our freedoms, and we should make sure that they did not die in vain. We are in a very dangerous position today, a very precarious position, where our basic freedoms are in jeopardy. If you can't see this, you have your head up your ass.

Could you please cite the post where you clearly and plainly admitted your source was wrong?

Other than you and a few others way over on the far right of the political spectrum, who gives a rat's ass what Ayers says? That would be like trying to paint the entire GOP with the rantings of one of their lunatic fringe inhabitants.

I don't believe that NGS is "looney tunes" at all.


To me, one of the real eye-openers from the health care town meetings that were conducted and televised in the early 1990s, was to hear people express the position that America's urban drug addiction problems, and crack in particular, were a white genocidal plot against blacks. Now I don't personally buy that position, and I think it's even a little bit paranoid and crazy, but the arguments had a consistency to them, and none of the logical steps involved were too far out there. And the people expressing that position, judging by their mode of dress, their mode of speaking, and their general demeanor, appeared to be high functioning middle class professionals. The political class ignores the perceptions of such a group at its own peril.


My point? "Obama is a Communist bent on destroying America" may be a crazy position, but the people who hold it are not crazy, and neither they nor the process by which they were led to that conclusion can safely be ignored.

There are two possibilities. 1. Obama is a fucking ignoramus when it comes to economics and he actually believes that handing over entire sectors of the economy (health care, energy) to government is going to result in a better economy, or 2. it is all about Cloward-Piven. I'm inclined to go with 2, because I don't think Obama is stupid. He is rather a very bright guy, and this very intentional. We are headed for the abyss, and if he gets another four years? Well, Nellie, bar the door.

Trained as a structural engineer, IIRC. It's an interesting thing that turned up in the recent deep studies of violent radicals, they tend to come from a segment of the upper-middle class. Most of the 911 hijackers fit that profile. The two guys who drove a bomb into Heathrow airport were physicians. So was Zawahiri. Rand Paul demostrated a distinct megalomania tendency when he up and created his own certification board to certify himself with.

I suspect megalomaniacs may be drawn to the profession in some way.

Nanna, Nancy Pelosi is hiding behind the shrubs in your back yard. She has pamphlets.

Right now, as you read this, Evil Grandma is scheming with Acorn and assorted half-breed Community Organizers to brainwash the innocent, and their unborn, using a 24h drum circle and bike-a-thon, in order to raise money for State Sponsored Chinese heroin purchases. Then, they will finally crush the unwashed, uninformed masses under the leviathan wheels of The Evil State. Better head for your bunker.

Bus Driver. Short bus, right?


Would you care to address the content of my comments or are you just going to attempt to make silly and childish personal attacks?

Do you deny recently posting a graph tilted in an embarrassingly bad attempt to show no change?

Do you deny being an asshole who is trying to mischaracterize my post on sea level change in a cheap effort to score points? Would you like to actually discuss sea level change, or do you want to just make stupid uninformed comments about charts and ideas beyond the reach of your moronic intellect?

Would you be prepared to discuss rationally the problem with adjusting satellite data with one tide gauge in an area of known subsistence, or do you want to just blow smoke out your ass?

Would you like to actually discuss the merits of the entire presentation by Dr. Alex Morner, an expert on sea level change, to the UK Parliament which included use of the chart you ignorantly ridicule to make a point to the public as a means of illustrating a measurement problem, or just continue to make uninformed idiotic noises commensurate with your low IQ?

Do you actually know something about science, in any area, or mathematics, or are you stuck with your head up your ass unable to comprehend even the simplest scientific issues because of a pathetically poor education and genetic mental deficit?

I think we all know the answers to these questions.

He isn't alone. I know people that buy into a lot of his looney tunes nonsense.



I don't believe that NGS is "looney tunes" at all.


To me, one of the real eye-openers from the health care town meetings that were conducted and televised in the early 1990s, was to hear people express the position that America's urban drug addiction problems, and crack in particular, were a white genocidal plot against blacks. Now I don't personally buy that position, and I think it's even a little bit paranoid and crazy, but the arguments had a consistency to them, and none of the logical steps involved were too far out there. And the people expressing that position, judging by their mode of dress, their mode of speaking, and their general demeanor, appeared to be high functioning middle class professionals. The political class ignores the perceptions of such a group at its own peril.


My point? "Obama is a Communist bent on destroying America" may be a crazy position, but the people who hold it are not crazy, and neither they nor the process by which they were led to that conclusion can safely be ignored.


In The Stranger Beside Me, the author wrote a complex tale about a attractive, articulate, and charming young man, who was working the late shift at a crisis hotline center and... at for ...uhhh....active in a political party (inflammatory insinuation very deliberately redacted...)... According to the author, the gentleman was an excellent counselor, 'listening attentively and offering comfort and advice to those calling in for help'. That counselor's name was Ted Bundy. Sometimes, you can't tell...

My, but aren't you an angry motherf*cker?

You are roundly mocked for the ridiculous assretions that come out of one of your orifices, yet you keep up the nasty attacks. Must suck to be derided and ridiculed. Apparently, it makes you very angry.

As for you challenging me on my science background, I don't engage in those grade school playground "my diploma's bigger than your diploma" games. Those who know a little about me here know my science background and education is quite strong.

Go back you your petty little existence and keep posting ridiculous clap-trap from the right-wing blogosphere. Plenty here will continue to mock you.

Middle class professional? Did OBL ever work a day in his life? Wasn't he kind of the Ann Romney of terrorists?


Trained as a structural engineer, IIRC. It's an interesting thing that turned up in the recent deep studies of violent radicals, they tend to come from a segment of the upper-middle class. Most of the 911 hijackers fit that profile. The two guys who drove a bomb into Heathrow airport were physicians. So was Zawahiri. Rand Paul demostrated a distinct megalomania tendency when he up and created his own certification board to certify himself with.

I suspect megalomaniacs may be drawn to the profession in some way.


Rand Paul is a violent megalomaniac akin to known terrorists because he did not like grandfathering in old doctors while requiring recurrent training from new ones?

Wow. :rolleyes: Your fear of libertarians really warps your mind sometimes.

Ah, so when the Aryans say the Tea Party are their people , that means all Republicans who associate with the baggerz are white power KKK members?

If Charley Mason likes Dick Cheney, what does that mean?

This stuff really gives me a chuckle. Our business leaders and economy is 100% relying on COMMUNIST CHINA and now the righties are trying to claim the people who hold us up on their shoulders are The Devil? You could not make this stuff up.....

Crazies......really!


OK - THAT was funny.

I don't fear libertarians. Just don't care for the ones that go so completely doctrinaire, to the point of creating their own certification board. That's a troubling indication of hubris. It's about as specious as pretending that criticizing a libertarian is to fear all libertarians, but not quite.

This argument seems to be at an impasse. Perhaps it's time to start a thread and poll the jury on the topic....

There are two possibilities. 1. Obama is a fucking ignoramus when it comes to economics and he actually believes that handing over entire sectors of the economy (health care, energy) to government is going to result in a better economy,



By what possible stretch of the imagination does Obama's health care plan, which empowers private insurance companies beyond their wildest dreams, constitute "handing over an entire sector of the economy" to government?

We are headed for the abyss, and if he gets another four years? Well, Nellie, bar the door.


Yeah, Yeah - that's what you all said about the first four years - and so far
out of iraq
recession fading
stock market doubled
unemployment in check and headed down
taxes low
energy conservation strongly underway
and thousands of other positive actions.....

We'll probably get four more of Obama I, and I'm sure everything will be fine...that is, except all your bookmarked sites will still be saying what you are now repeating.
