Allen Bernard West is the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 22nd congressional district. West attended a town hall meeting in Jensen Beach, located in the district in which he will be running for re-election in a new seat. At the meeting he was asked how many members of the Democratic Party are card-carrying Marxist Socialists and he responded by saying that he believes there are 78-81 members (in Congress) of the Democratic Party who belong to the Communist Party.

Angela Melvin is West’s spokeswoman. She defended his comments and clarified to whom West was referring:

“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.”

Apparently this really ticked off some people on Twitter:

Libero Della Piana is Vice President of the Communist Party USA. He says that there are no members of Congress who are members of the Communist Party: “Applicants have to apply through the national or local organizations and pay dues. Trust me — if a member of Congress applied to join the Communist Party we would know about it.”

    Here we go again. West made the full statement. The media edited his statement…leaving out his clear reference to the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Democrats and liberals went ballistic. West’s spokesperson then was forced to come out and explain that the media misrepresented his statements. But this is standard procedure. Conservative/Repub makes clear statement regarding libs/progressives/dems/whatever, media misrepresents the statements, libs/progressives/whatever become indignant, jump off Twitter cliff (timeline of twitter samples are revealing), and start a hungry-jack zombie movement to “take down” that “evil” conservative/repub. Then media reports how the nation is taking a stand against evil Conservative/Repub.

    Wash, Rinse, Repeat, Retweet….snooze.

      Guilt by association. In this case there isn’t even any association. Using Rep. West’s logic, if the Neo Nazi’s say they agree with Republicans, then Republicans are Nazi’s.

      See how easy that is?
