A Racist Under Every Bed, & Now Apparently the Communists Are Back Under There Too: Right-Winger Allen West Claims 80 House democrats Are Communists!
What is it about right-wingers and leftist 20 percenters that always instills in them the apparently incessant need and drive to spread ugly fear and hate-mongering and divisive name-calling 24-7 based upon not a shred of evidence? (Just take their word for it, they implore the mindless).
We've seen this with the constant rhetoric from the leftists over the past 3 years suggesting and/or implying that any opposition to Obama whatsoever must be based in some small or large part on racism. Never mind, of course, that all those racist Americans voted for and elected Obama in the first place by a majority vote.
And Wednesday deranged right-winger gop-er congressman Allen West got in on this unseemly action, saying that he's "heard" and "believes" that there are "78 to 81 members" of the democrat party in the U.S. House "that are members of the Communist Party."
In so doing, West ripped a putrid page from the playbook of disgraced gop-er senator Joseph McCarthy (pictured above) from more than a half-century ago -- the shameless right-wing nut who conducted a series of hearings, based upon little or no real evidence -- designed to "out" alleged American communists in the 1950s.
Now, are there plenty of far leftists in the U.S. House? Most def. But are all (or any, for that matter) of those idiots devout communists? Puh-lease. West's claim was so outlandlish that even the actual American communist party weighed in to object (second link below)! (You'd think said party would be embracing West's complete embellishment of the party's limited influence!).
So there you have it: My mandatory bi-weekly explanation of the big "X" that's struck through the names of both the democrat party and republic partisan party on the ballot at the top of this space. Even if it does apparently make me a racist communist over here.
