Rep. Allen West’s (R-FL) Might be an America Hating Nazi
A top official of the Communist Party USA on Wednesday ripped Rep. Allen West’s “sad ploy” for claiming that as many as 80 Democratic members of the House are communists.
“I just think it’s an absurd way to cast a shadow over his colleagues. It’s kind of a sad ploy,” Libero Della Piana, a vice-chairman of the national Communist Party, said of the Florida Republican’s charge that about 80 House Democrats were members of the radical party.
“It’s just guilt by association taken to an extreme,” he told POLITICO. He also said there are no members of Congress who are members of the Communist Party – not even avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

“I think it’s just absurd,” Della Piana said.
In a video clip of the event posted Wednesday, West was responding a question from a constituent asking “What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists?”
“That’s a fair question. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party,” West says in the video. He went on to say, “It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus,” according to a West spokesman, Tim Edson.
Della Piana also said that using the term “communist” as slander ran counter to democratic principles.
West does not feel he has to prove any accusation. he states his "feelings" and that is his complete standard for delivering his message to the public. Let's all go by the standards of this "conservative" "Christian" and simply say that West is a Nazi. That is how some people might feel. Thus by West's very own standards he is a Nazi. West says that if you 're against regulating business you are a communist. So being a Nazi West is OK with corporations dumping toxic waste into your family's drinking water because disposing of waste cots too much. West thinks that Wall Street should be able to steal your house and life savings because anyone who wants to regulate Wall St is a communist. Since West thinks that any rule that might cost Wall St even one dollar is wrong, so that makes him by definition a fascist. Let's us not assume that West is crazy and radical - though he may be. Let's assume based on the evidence we do have that West is just old fashioned evil.
