At Least 15% of Your Elected Congressional Servants are DOCUMENTED Socialists…Want to See the List?

Moderator: “What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialist?”

West: “It’s a good question. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. … It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.” Source: http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2012/apr/11/allen-west/allen-west-says-about-80-house-democrats-are-membe/

allenwestAllen West certainly took a lot of heat for his comments of April 10, 2012 but like everything else, many people stand on their opinions without bothering to support them. Today I want to prove to you that the correlation that West was drawing between the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and socialism is absolutely correct.

First let’s attach the most current list of the CPC that I was able to find. The list was not dated but I believe it is from the 112th congress. For now let’s draw no conclusions from this list. We will vindicate Allen West later. This is simply a list of the CPC. I would like to add that Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama are both former members, however.

OK if we were to stop right here then both Allen West and myself would be left swinging in the wind. Just because someone belongs or did belong to the Congressional Progressive Caucus, it does not necessarily mean they are socialists. So far that is simply an allegation and we have shown no proof. I am going to give you just a taste of a very powerful report that blows this story wide open and then you can do further research if you would like.

The CPC has deep connections to the Democratic Socialists of America and openly promotes its ideology. The DSA is the socialist organization in America today with thousands of members working to bring about the end of our republic as we know it.

In 1999 WorldNetDaily.com reported that the DSA hosted the website of the CPC. Within days of the publication of this report, the CPC removed its site from the DSA server and information connecting the organizations was then washed from the websites of the CPC and DSA. Source:   http://www.restoreamericanliberty.com/WhoaretheSocialists.pdf

For anyone who is interested in researching this topic, you can make very deep connections between these two organizations. The source of my information is an excellent place to start. But, in a matter of 30 seconds you won’t really need to do further research. I will make the correlation for you.

I want to move on, because I feel the need to make another connection that no one has seemed to make. In 2009, in a controversial move, the Democratic Socialists of America released a list of then current members who were elected members of congress. When you compare the two lists you will start to get to the truth. This list is from the 111th congress, those in bold-print have a special significance:

NOTE: THOSE IN BOLD ARE ON BOTH LISTS.

Allen West is not crazy. Do you find it suspect that many of the same names from the CPC are also admitted members of the Democratic Socialists of America?

Here are the things we need to keep in mind, in my opinion:

  • The lists are from two different sources. One is an accused socialist group, and the other is an acknowledged socialist group, but notice how closely they match.
  • The lists are from two different congresses. Comparing the 111th and 112th congress is the reason for some of the disparity.
  • The list for the 112th congress is larger, which would seem to indicate growth in the movement.
  • We are now in the 113th congress so more “progressive” momentum could be happening as we speak.
  • I think in all fairness we must consider those who are potential socialists who are still very much in hiding. The people on these lists will have a hard time denying it, but there are others.

So what have I proven today? What if there really are 78-81 socialists in congress? Is socialism a dirty word?

It is to me. I believe socialism is a dangerous form of government that has never proven to work for the good of its people. And as Vladimir Lennin said, “The goal of socialism is communism.”

We all know the dangers of communism. Right?

I am going to keep beating this dead horse until people listen. This is a battle that this country must not lose. If we lose this battle then we lose our rights. My freedom means everything to me.

My opinion is that anyone who has a favorable view of socialism probably hasn’t done much research into world history.

Don’t want to listen to me? That’s fair enough. How about checking out a FREE documentary that is presented by well-known historians, political figures and journalists?

  2. Brian says:

    Which progressives are you people talking about the left or the right? We have two socialist factions in our two party system. Both are socialist parties. Read your real history. I grew up reading Civil war newspapers and remember the people behind Lincoln were absolute socialist.They were called the 48ers.They were the socialist run out of Europe for being socialist. They landed in America and had alot of control.Saying there is only one socialist party is like saying there were only black slaves! Sorry but that is not reality just doctored history.

    • Ron says:

      Yeah, OK, Brian. Can you prove that vitriolic morass?? Progressives have penetrated both parties. True conservatives are not socialists. I don’t recall any socialists being run out of Europe. They all ended up in Austria and France and later into Germany. Can you say Hitler?

    promoting Homosexuality,promoting drugs,promoting abortions,etc…..WHY would you want to PROMOTE the WRONG thing Scott Bashaw?

  4. Pingback: AT least 15% of Our Elected Congressional Servants are DOCUMENTED Socialists and here is the LIST | The Right Of Way

  5. Well said, Sir.
    You are far from an idiot, These progressives are really regressives …nothing progressive about doing the same thing ( communism) over and over and over again. And the body count jumps by tens of millions each time it’s tried by yet more mentally ill regressives.

    They can’t see it though. that they ARE the enemy. That we HAVE been invaded. You cannot change their minds, They think they are right. Storms are gathering in hearts from allover this nation. One spark. Something goes off in the inner city … We are on a hair trigger now. Civil war is become a very real possibility. One spark … And this nation WILL go up in flames. Maybe it is time.

  6. LIKE I HAVE SAID. TRY THEM FOR OPEN TREASON, AND I’LL BE THERE FOR THEIR HANGINGS…….

  7. Moogie says:

    I find the far right so fascinating. Yes, you all are the ones who love America..the real patriots

    • Ed says:

      ah.. but you love Amerika… your way. Which is not the intent of the founding of America. Oh wait, that’s old school and not “progressive”. How silly to not remember that. Yup, we use roads, 911, etc and that is part of the better good for all of us but there is a limit. And that limit to you is…? What are your limits? I do suppose your hero was W. Wilson..

      I do find listening and reading about progressives so interesting.. and so transparent.

      • I will say this. Much blood and sacrifice has gone into building this country. Thinking we can switch to this utopian model is simply dangerous. If Obama has his way we will end up with 150 total nuclear warheads while Iran and North Korea continue their build up. I deal in reality. The reality is that Americans are hated around the world. The reality is that our military and southern defenses are being weakened while we send military aid to Egypt? This country has always been about “dangerous freedom” and even if the goal is not a communistic state, a socialistic utopian state is just as dangerous, for two reasons:

        1- It makes us ripe for lots of “pay back.”
        2- It makes us ripe for a corrupt leader who will bring in the communist state, even if that leader is not Obama.

        So yes, I love my country. But I can not love it by showering it with roses and driving the economy into the ground. We need strength and we need freedoms.

        Put the shoe on the other foot for just a minute. Say we had an ultra conservative at the top Moogie. If this ultra conservative put you in a mental hospital because of your dissenting opinions would that be right? Well it happened to a young Marine named Brandon Raub. FBI officials dragged him off to a mental hospital because he posted things similar to this article on facebook. They effectively took away his freedom of speech and declared him insane. If the ghost of Reagan were in office and doing that to progressives, you would be angry. This is the direction of our government. Freedoms are being eroded. I appreciate your comments and apologize that I am not more coherent tonight. I’ve been at this for 14 hours. So yes I rambled and surely got off point, but yes I do love my country. I have no problem with progressive opinions. I do have serious problems when constitutionally protected rights start to fall victim to those opinions. Just my two cents and two remaining brain cells. :-)

        • Scott Bashaw says:

          Muslims hate America for its Liberal value’s of promoting Homosexuality,promoting drugs,promoting abortions,etc…..this is why they Hate us

          • medz says:

            all liberal agendas …..go figure , they actually hate what Obama stands for …….obama is a secular left wing radical why don’t put him a kill list?

          • Penguin ComPassion says:

            You got that right! That is why they not only hate us, but places like Latin America and other areas in the world as well. Their population is more traditional in their living and they resent when the United States sells them it’s values by way of abortion, pornography, same-sex marriage and the like.

        • Ron says:

          Please keep in mind also how Obama and his mob ruined “Joe the Plumber” after his honesty in the 2008 campaign. He is now bankrupt and had to close his plumbing business. This is a fine example of the repressive tolerance of the left and what awaits us in a future Obamanation or socialistic state on a wide scale.

  8. Just more confirmation of what we already know. Now, Dean, why don’t you go through the list a third time, and tell us all what their current political party affiliation is? We could use additional confirmation :-)

  9. Fiasco40 says:

    Two great books on Senator McCarthy are: “Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Sen. Joseph McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies” by Stanton Evans, and “Joseph McCarthy: Reexamining the Life and Legacy of America’s Most Hated Senator” by Arthur Herman. Both books offer a clear and concise history of Joe McCarthy’s background, and tenure as a Senator from Wisconsin. Using actual government documents and historical records, both biographers strive to offer an empirical view of the Senator, unclouded by bias, smears or innuendo. Two more great sources are “The Venona Secrets: Exposing Soviet Espionage & America’s Traitors” by Herbert Romerstein & Eric Breindel and “Witness” by Whittaker Chambers

  10. Lehmon Baxley says:

    Joe McCarthy, where are you now? Everyone said the man was psychotic, seeing communists behind every tree…well guess what, they were really there.

    • In school I was taught he was a whack job. Seriously I was. And I am 44. That’s been awhile ago. There is no doubt we have been conditioned for years.

      • I find it interesting that most public school text books are vetted in Texas. A state which one would think to be right leaning. Am I incorrect? Just wondering….

        • Ron says:

          Some school books accepted by TX in the recent few years are alarmingly progressive, actually. Some books went so far as to promote Hispanic culture over Anglo culture and label some figures incorrectly and even leave out the Founders in some cases. Parents need to carefully scrutinize the books chosen by their local school board.
          I would heavily suggest giving your kids “A Patriot’s History of the United States” @2002. It covers all the bases quite well.

  11. Moogie says:

    Did you know that Allen Wests comment about communists in the Democratic Party was rated by politicifactas”pants on fire.” Have you ever attended a public school, driven on a paved road or freeway, been in a public park, a state university, a national park, used 911, used the police, a fire department, or benefited from the milita? Congratulations… You have participated in collectivism.. Tax pay or supported services.. A type or degree if socialism. What don’t you do a seance and bring back Sen. McCarthy.. And have another house committee on unamerican activities.. Except, wait..those witch hunts are .. Well…unamerican.

    • Moogie. I think it’s a matter of balance. There has never to my knowledge been a purely capitalist society. But when socialist programs get out of hand we end up exactly where we are. Thank You for your wonderful analysis. Keep posting comments like this my friend. We all need to learn from each other. Thank You.

    • Kirch says:

      SENATOR McCarthy was NOT in charge of the HOUSE Committee on Unamerican Activites. One is the Senate and one is the House of Representatives. Senators don’t preside over House committees. Get your gov’t and history correct before ranting about things like this. You just proved that you are just regurgitating the lies you were told by the progressives (fabians – look it up) who have infiltrated our education system.

  12. Ed says:

    Dean, there is a historical and direct connection between fascists, socialist, communists and their rebranding as “progressives”. No speculation, no conjecture… It’s in the history books. Alas, no one reads history these days.

    • Amen to that. While I was doing some research I found that “Progressive Insurance” might have some questionable ties as well. Thus, not only do people not read history but they don’t often see what is right in front of their faces. Thanks for the great comments Ed. Keep them coming my friend.
