Lunatic Wingnut Allen West Channels his Inner Joseph McCarthy [UPDATE 1]

Uhhh, what?

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.

Communists???  Really?  That’s the best you can do?

This stinks of echoes “Tailgunner Joe” and his infamous Lincoln Day “Enemies Within” speech.

This is glaringly true in the State Department. There the bright young men who are born with silver spoons in their mouths are the ones who have been most traitorous. . . .

I have here in my hand a list of 205 . . . a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department. . . .

As you know, very recently the Secretary of State proclaimed his loyalty to a man guilty of what has always been considered as the most abominable of all crimes—being a traitor to the people who gave him a position of great trust—high treason. . . .

 Oy vey…  Regressing, regressing, regressing…
[UPDATE 1] Congressman West’s office issued the following “clarification” of his statement:
“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.   The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself.  These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom.”
So if the American Nazi Party lists Congressman West as an “ally,” that makes him a Nazi.  Ok, got it.

  1. What Uncle Tom…err…Rep. West was asked was if hew knew of any card carrying Communists or Socialists, without regard to nation of origin. And the answer was “yes”.

    His disingenuous attempts at damage-control only serve to further prove his guilt. A con-traction isn’t a re-traction. Too little, too late. Besides, it’s his political party that’s consorting with the enemy all the time…
