According to new reports as many as 80 House Democrats are communists; at least that’s what Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Congressman Allen (Walter E. Kurtz) West is claiming.
Kurtz (West) warned his uber-conservative constituents at a recent town hall he’s “heard” that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. Of course Kurtz (West) wouldn’t – or more likely couldn’t – provide any evidence his claim’s remotely true, and of course he didn’t offer any names.
It’s strange he should say this because just the other I heard there’s at least 80 Republicans in the House who’re half-wits.
During the same event, West said President Barack Obama wouldn’t have a public debate with him over their policy differences.
“I really wish that, standing here before you, was Allen West and President Obama,” West said, according to the Palm Beach Post. “We could have a simple discussion. But that ain’t ever gonna happen.”
When an audience member asked why, West said in “a mocking voice” that it was because Obama “was too scared.”
OK, let me get this straight; the President of the United States, won’t debate a freshman congressman from Florida because he’s scared of him? Right; well, perhaps, just perhaps, he just doesn’t schedule time to debate raving lunatics?
Congressman Kurtz (West) needs to read some history books, real history books, and perhaps he’d have figured out this shtick was already tried by a senator from Wisconsin who became rather infamous because of his claims; no one says “When I grow up I want to be just like Joe McCarthy”, and I’m fairly certain there aren’t a lot of children out there saying, “When I grow up I want to be just like Allen West, threatening prisoners and shooting my pistol next to their heads”.
First, Willard Mitt Romney decides Russia is our worse enemy, and now Colonel Kurtz is seeing commies in the congress … someone also needs to tells these guys this 2012 not 1980; and West should be very careful, because those 80 commies are probably after his precious bodily fluids.
