Rep. Allen West Believes 80 Democratic Congressmen are Card-Carrying Communists: VIDEO

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) spoke to a group of Florida voters last night and said he thinks that 80 Democratic congressmen belong to the Communist Party:

WestLater Tuesday evening, a Jensen Beach crowd of 100 with more than 15 protesters greeted the congressman with mixed support, cheers and jeers.

The conservative tea party icon also got in shots at Democrats and President Obama, who spoke Tuesday at Florida Atlantic University. West said Obama was "scared" to have a discussion with him. He later said "he's heard" up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members, but wouldn't name names.

West was recently reported to be on a short list for Romney's running mate.

UPDATE: Video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Seriously, if you're so caught up in your hatred for Allen West, he's the same guy who said he was in a "white supremacist motorcycle gang. He says thing to make liberals wet their pants and go home crying to their mommies.

    So look, quit hating on this black man. It's not cool and it reflects badly on this site. Allen West is a much better than Obama's hateful pastor Jeremiah Wright, a hater of gays and Jews.

    So write an article on Wright, Andy? Not gonna happen, is it?

  3. Allen West = charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134 (general article) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

    Enough said right there

  5. he's the black man's version of GOProud.

    be a targeted minority choosing to suck up to a group of bigots, who will otherwise hate you unless you cut off your own balls and show subservience to them by repeating the asinine talking points that are their raison d'etre.

    *puke*

    and ignore Alan the Troll - he's one more racist who comes on here every day to express his fury that a black democrat has more respect for him as a gay man than his own chosen white "comrades."
    truth.

  6. It appears that severe cognitive defects are common in people named Allen/Alan.

  7. West isn't smart enough to say things to incite anyone. He's simply crazy. The people of his district have had buyer's remourse ever since they elected him. He's soon-to-be-a-Fox-contributor.

  8. @ENDO - President Obama's election really made a specific sub-group of gay men snap the tether, so to speak.
    you get those gay men who were raised to hate blacks and liberals, and in their own, other gays.
    Enter President Obama. Suddenly a black liberal democrat extends more grace and compassion to them than their own white families and communities. Hence the snapping of the tether.

    It's gotta be a devastating loss of self to realize that the people you've been raised to hate your entire life are actually the ones who are doing more for you than the people whose @sses you've been kissing for decades. Ouch, for them.

  9. And I think he's a card carrying Nazi and his problem is?

  10. West needs to shut up and sit down. He and his like (i.a., Cain) are out to gain easy political points by putting on their minstrel show for white conservatives. They don't give a rat's ass about reality or the consequences of their japery. They're the GOProud of black people.

  11. Considering we won the cold war over 20 years ago, this might not be a major issue.

  12. This guy needs to be arrested and locked up - at least for the rest of MY life - for Assault with a Deadly Stupid!

    This man's a menace!

  13. West is clearly certifiable.

  14. remember those people who, during the process of Integration, ran around with signs saying "Race Mixing is Communism?"

    I do. Bet West doesn't.

  15. ED beat me to the "Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" quotation.

    How very McCarthy of Rep West. That or Manchurian Candidate.

    Who elected this POS?

  16. He had been on a list of potential running mates w/Romney...I guess we can scratch his name off.

    But more to the point, name names Allen. If you have the names, name them--and be prepared to prove it.

  17. Romney has got to pick this guy for V.P. We need a strong democratic victory in november and that would guarantee it. However somebody should tell west that his act has been done before by joe mc carthy and it didn't work out to well for joe.

  18. Sen. Joe McCarthy reincarnated? i'm serious...

    Rep West was born in 1961. Sen Joe McCarthy died in 1957!!!!

    it could happen...

  19. you gotta hand it to the GOP - when it comes to "representing minorities" they always pick the most embarrassingly pathetic ones.

    from the anti-woman women, the testicle-free anti-gay gays, to non-whites like West and Steele - it's always the same thing: find a minority who sucks up to white heterosexual christian males.

    you get all the racist gay men who lean-Right because they hate blacks. you then get the non-whites who lean-Right because they hate gays. both targeted minority groups side with the GOP because.....they hate each other. it'd be hilarious were it not so shamefully sad.

  20. Shouldn't these Reps. & candidates for office have to pass a literacy test.....and a stupidity test ?

    In fact all aspiring office holders should be subject to a basic skills test.....and a mental evaluation for megalomania.

  21. Rep. Allen West's latest pronouncement rudely reminds people that demagogic assholery knows no color barrier.

    Posted by: Peter | Apr 11, 2012 12:33:52 PM


  22. West is a jerk who would enjoy living in Iran...and who would carry a communist card anymore? If they do, it is their grandfather's card.

    Posted by: trees | Apr 11, 2012 1:00:45 PM


  23. The word "communist" lost its political punch in the 1980's. Only granny and grandpa care whos a communist. If the rethugs wanna be hateful cant they come up with new material?

  24. He has diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain.

  25. That's nothing. Over 100 Republicans in congress are Fascists.
