'You Can Call it Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism, or Statism': Rep. West Defends His '80 Communists in the House' Claim …

The Man Who Should Be President

‘You Can Call it Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism …

Rep. West Defends His ‘80 Communists in the House‘ Claim.

During a Fox July Fourth special featuring Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and political strategist Frank Luntz, an audience member asked the Florida congressman how he expects to heal the America political system when he says divisive and “absurd” things like there are “70 Communists in the House of Representatives.”

“I think one of the things that’s really ruined our politics is rhetoric,” said Aaron, the audience member. “And I think for a congressman to make the accusation that are 70 Communists in the House of Representatives is an absurd statement and it doesn’t really reflect the story you just told.”

Rep. West disagreed.

“But it does reflect the story I just told because it reflects a person that has studied political theory and ideology. I have a Bachelor’s degree and two Master’s degrees in political science, political theory, political ideology. And the thing is you have to be able to understand the two competing principles of philosophies of governance in this country,” Rep. West said.

He continued:

When you go back and you read the documents, the Declaration of Independence, the full declaration, the full Constitution, you’ll understand limited government, you’ll understand fiscal responsibility, you’ll understand individual sovereignty, free markets … strong national defense.

But there are people on the other side, and you can call them whatever you wish, you can call it Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism, or Statism …They believe in creating and expanding an entitlement or welfare state.

“And you can’t tell me that you’re not seeing that in the United States of America right now,” he added.

  1. Sheik, as usual, you’re right on the ball with the statement “The Man Who Should Be President”. this man is a real American hero and patriot. I don’t know why the American public seems to place so little value in military/combat leadership experience as a pre-req for political leadership – this man has got both in droves. What’s more, he is an actual African-American – not the half-caste son of an absentee muselmarxist Kenyan and a self-hating leftard white American whore.

  2. Military, profit, constitution, gun rights, free speech: out!

    Islam, Marxism, redistribution, ‘eat the rich’ class warfare: in!

    America has been systematically destroyed by the Obama people.

    While most of us just try to make a living and pay their taxes, the leftist professors in the universities are poisoning the minds of our children against everything that made the nation great and exceptional. (But that’s also a bad word now, because it makes the mediocre and the scum of the earth feel bad.)
