Don’t Let the Organized Left’s Charges of “McCarthyism” Deter You – Allen West Is Right

The U.S. Congress is swimming with far left Communist sympathizers. Naysayers can nitpick all day long about whether or not they are actually card carrying members of the Communist Party, or just fellow travelers. It’s a distinction without a difference that has serious political implications, and effects national security,  as Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid recently pointed out at Noisy Room:

Rep. Allen West’s comments about alleged communists in Congress have led to what West calls “A lot of buzz and inaccurate reporting” in the media. Some reporters have nitpicked West on whether he has concrete proof of actual card-carrying members of the Communist Party USA in the Congress.

Politico called him a McCarthyite and actually quoted a spokesman for the Communist Party as saying that West didn’t know what he was talking about.

But the alternative media, led by, have been covering the story of how the international communist movement, responsible for about one hundred million dead, is very much alive and has collaborators in the U.S. Congress. Rebel Pundit is the work of Jeremy Segal, a disciple of the late Andrew Breitbart who produced the recent video of Rep. Danny K. Davis being honored by the People’s World at the Communist Party U.S.A.’s headquarters in Chicago for a lifetime of “inspiring leadership.”

Davis serves on the Homeland Security Committee where his subcommittee assignments are the Subcommittee on Transportation and the Subcommittee on Oversight. He is also a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

When Segal started questioning the congressman outside the party headquarters, CPUSA members and a Davis handler wearing an Obama jacket tried to intervene to protect Davis from further questioning, with one person calling Segal “disgusting.” Segal protested, “Don’t touch me!”

But rather than highlight the case against Davis, who has represented the Chicago-area 7th Congressional District of Illinois since 1996, Chicago Tribune columnist and editorial writer Steve Chapman called West “an embarrassment to the party” for his anti-communist remarks and suggested that he be condemned or expelled from the GOP caucus in the House.

In a brief telephone interview, Chapman, who is labeled a “conservative” by the Townhall website, told AIM that he had never heard of or seen the Davis video, which was originally released through a Breitbart website on March 12. He said he would determine whether it is newsworthy if a link to the video was emailed to him. It has been done.

Just a little intellectual curiosity and honesty is asked of members of the media who are not themselves, fellow travelers. They shouldn’t be cowed by the Democrat media complex’s charges of “McCarthyism” and “red-baiting”.

The evidence of Communist collusion in Congress is all over the place:

Rep. West clearly understands the media war as well and said about the controversy over his comments: “The press wants to write gotcha stories and talk semantics, but just look at the words and actions of the [Congressional] Progressive Caucus. You can call them socialist, Marxist, communist or whatever you want, but the point is, they oppose free markets and individual economic freedom, they want 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. Members of this Caucus lavished praise on Fidel Castro following a 2009 visit, just to name one example. The Communist Party USA claims the Progressive Caucus as its ‘ally.’”

West was referring to a 2009 visit to Cuba by Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Cal.), Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) and Emanuel Cleaver II (D-Mo.), who met Fidel Castro. Rush said about Raul Castro, “I think that what really surprised me, but also endeared me to him, was his keen sense of humor, his sense of history and his basic human qualities.”

Lee began her career in the California state legislature as a secret member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a spin-off from the Communist Party.

Finish reading at Noisy Room for more and hit Rebelpundit’s tip jar so he can continue doing the good work he’s doing exposing the Communist left in Chicago.


For a disturbing companion read, see Zombie, who attends a Berkeley lecture to learn: “Teaching as a Subversive Activity”: The Theory of Political Indoctrination:

Let it be noted that Professor H. Douglas Brown is no wild-eyed extremist; in fact, he’s rather bland and respectable and not the most thrilling of speakers, as you will soon hear. But that’s what made his presentation so disturbing: radical and self-admittedly “subversive” attitudes that affect the future of society are discussed with matter-of-fact nonchalance. The main drawback of Professor Brown’s verbal style (at least from my point of view) is that he often resorts to the academics’ tried-and-true escape hatch, which is to rephrase statements as questions, so as to have plausible deniability if later confronted. Thus, for example, instead of just flatly saying something like “We should indoctrinate students with leftist ideologies,” he asks “Should we indoctrinate students with leftist ideologies?” and only after five minutes of talking in circles eventually concludes “Yes.”

  2. Agreed, Allen West is right. Further, Allen West would be a fine VP. And further still, Allen West would be a better president than either Obama or Romney.

  4. Obama has been surrounded by communist since he was a kid. In fact, his mommie was very close to being a communist. His mentor, Frank Douglas was a communist. His other part of his brain, Valerie Jarrett, is the daughter in law of a very famous communist, Vernon Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett first started in politics in the Harold Washington mayoral administration in, you guessed it, Chicago. Who was Washington’s most vocal supporter, Harold Washington. Michelle Robinson was first hired by, guess who, Valerie Jarrett. David Axelrod, socialist, communist background, take a look. State senator who who first convinced Obama to run for her office when she was going to run for federal office, a communist. State senator who had Bill Ayres, terrorist, and his wife, Bernadett Dohrn, terrorist, sponsor Obama in announcing his first candidacy,communist. ANyone seeing a pattern here and you still want to vote for Obama?


  5. whoops, Harold Washington’s most vocal supporter was, Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was also good friends with, get this, Frank Douglas. Long before Douglas befriended the young Obama after he arrived in Hawaii. In fact, the two were both members of the Chicago chapter of the Communist Party of the USA. Check into….see how many unions were first involved with the Communist Party of the USA especially those in Chicago.

    Out where West, is there be dragons. They’re imaginary dragons, but there’s not much else out there.
