Allen West: Jared Polis is a Card-Carrying Marxist

  • by: Theosuphus Jones

( – promoted by Colorado Pols)

FRIDAY POLS UPDATE: Per Allison Sherry of the Denver paper–Rep. Allen West, you’ve just become a nationwide laughingstock. What are you going to do now?

Headline the Denver GOP Lincoln Day Dinner, naturally!

We seriously don’t know how Denver Republicans keep getting this lucky.


THURSDAY POLS UPDATE: No response yet from Rep. Jared Polis, the only member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in our delegation to the charge he’s “a member of the Communist Party.” But how many communists have a net worth over $140 million?

Here’s the uncut video, so you can decide for yourself if Rep. Allen West is serious:

Washington Post says he is:

After a long pause, West adds that he is talking about the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a group of 76 of the more liberal Democrats in the U.S. House.

West’s comment clearly states that these members of Congress are also actual members of the Communist Party, though. There is no evidence to support that.

West campaign manager Tim Edson pointed out that some Democratic members of Congress have traveled to Communist Cuba in recent years…

“He stands by the comments,” Edson said. “Call them what you want; they’re clearly people who oppose capitalism and free markets and individual economic freedom. So, if the [shoe] fits.”…

WASHINGTON (AP) – Republican Rep. Allen West said he believes 75-plus House Democrats are members of the Communist Party, a claim that echoed Joe McCarthy’s unsubstantiated 1950s charges that communists had infiltrated the top ranks of the U.S. government.

Addressing a town-hall meeting Tuesday in Florida, the freshman lawmaker was asked how many members of the American legislature are “card-carrying Marxists.” West said “there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He did not provide names.

West’s office said Wednesday that the congressman stood by the comments and was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest group within the House Democratic caucus.

    1. I would love to read your definition of communism.

      Personally, I do not believe the theory makes any sense what so ever so it is impossible to define but I will give you the simplest version I can.

      Communist subscribe to the labor theory of value rather than the subjective theory of value.

      1. “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.”

      2. “These are the values inspiring those brave workers in Poland. The values that have inspired other dissidents under Communist domination.  They remind us that where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost.  They remind us that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  You and I must protect and preserve freedom here or it will not be passed on to our children.  Today the workers in Poland are showing a new generation not how high is the price of freedom but how much it is worth that price.”

        (I guess that really doesn’t work – after all, how can he be a President who values labor, and unions, at the same time he’s speechifying against Communism?)

      3. traveling to Cuba you are a Communist.  Black and White Bro.  No doubt about it.

        And what does it prove Mr. West?  Promoting sending our sons and daughters off to die in needless wars makes you more patriotic than someone who opposes such a waste of lives and resources?  Really?

      4. and then compare that to any Econ 101 or even a H.S. Social Studies class to get a feel for the idiocy West spews.  

        But it’s not about West really wanting to debate or discuss economic theory or political state structure.  No, this is Alan West wanting to demagogue by strumming a tired idiotic and obsolete conservative trope.  It’s great for your side that Idiot West gets this press serving as the Mouth of the GOTP.  

        Is there some kind of conspiracy NUT prereq to serve as a GOP Rep?  Folks like Steve King, Daryl Issa, Chuck Gomert, Joe Walsh, Joe Wilson, Michele Bachmann, Joe Bartlett, and Mike Pence just can’t open their mouths without spewing some finger-pointing bullshit.  It would be nice if they’d ever really work for the people rather than demagogue in front of the cams to the lowest info voter blocs.      

  1. in a Congressional District with the likes of Mr West as my Rep.  And I’m thankful I don’t have to live in one of the many states in which the state legislature has gone off the edge of the sanity cliff.

  2. So it’s come to this?

    No surprise District that was the center of the Florida election theft in 2000 hatches this amphibian.


    West probably doesn’t even know what a Communist is, he’s like the guy in Alexandra Pelosi’s film “Right America, feeling Wronged”, running around wearing the t-shirt that says “Obama’s a socalist”. When Pelosi asked why he misspelled “socialist” the guy answered “I didn’t!”.

    But maybe he’s Professor Harold Hill.

    At any rate, he has no compunction hurling the most ludicrous accusations.

    Now I know where agop, libertad, and nock get their stuff.

  3. And I see your editors made it good and everything.  Thank you.  I wanted to make sure people understood the devious nature of these communists in our Congress.  The ones that pose as successful capitalists are particularly worrisome as your readers have astutely noted.  Thank you for keeping the people informed.  

    Remember–Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.  I always knew it was called the ‘People’s Republic’ for a reason.  And doesn’t one of the top posters here hail from there? And doesn’t he seem awfully capitalistic at times???   Just saying, you can connect the dots yerselves.

    1. In your remarkable comment, though, you forgot to link to your marvelous product with an urge for American consumers to buy? Or was this oversight.
