Someone get this man a chair, hammock and a loveseat!
house-slave black Republican Allen West channeled his finest Joe McCarthy impression in a town-hall meeting in Florida this past weekend. Allen, claimed that as many as 80 House Democrats are communists and attacked the President in front of a crowd of Tea Party and conservative members:
West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he’s “heard” that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. West wouldn’t elaborate beyond that, however, and didn’t offer up any names. There are currently 190 House Democrats.
A request for comment from West’s spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
During the same event, which took place at Jensen Beach, the freshman Republican said President Barack Obama wouldn’t have a public debate with him over their policy differences because he was “scared.” The president was in Florida on Tuesday giving remarks about the economy and holding campaign events.
“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.”
Hey look kids, it’s the McCarthyism era all over again! Slander, subversion and treason for everybody!
