Allen West vs. Soledad O'Brien on Communists in Congress: "Name Names"

Happy Jake Wrote: Apr 20, 2012 5:45 AM
So we have Leftists who called conservatives "Nazis" throughout the Bush administration, and how many, exactly were called to the carpet to "prove it" or "name names" by Ms. O'Brien? We have Leftists who called the Tea Partiers "Racists" and how many have been chastised by Ms. O'Brien? The only reason people bristle at being called Communists is because Communist nations were (still are, in some cases) our mortal enemies; and for 40 years, the Democrats had to pretend to hate Communism almost as much as the Republicans actually did.

It isn't so much the "communist nations" that we need to concern ourselves with. We need to get away from the propaganda, and the divisive nature of spin focus away from the truth. Here are some interesting points.

A. AFTER the McCarthy era, what actually happened, read Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" HIS own forward. the communists in this country went "underground" (weather underground sound familiar)...

B. The Bill Ayers of the world and his radical friends stopped bombing buildings and rioting in the streets as they saw it as futile..and took to "hiding in plain sight" In of all places, the inculcate and indoctrinate the youth off this nation....Study what Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler and the like said

about ganing access to the children (to indoctrinate them) Don't the radical Islamists i.e. Hezbolah, and the like do the same thing to get their kids primary ambition to be grow up and become a suicide bomber in the name of the CAUSE?

C. From Lenin, to Stalin (who confiscated lane, took over farms, businesses etc and STARVED 30 million people to death) To Kruschiev..all had the goal of world wide commuism or domination even to the point of perhaps taking thirty to forty years to do so...

D. In keeping with the tactic of Bill Ayers, they changed their spot Kruschev..stated that comminism would take over America and that they would bring about the down fall "from within' without firing a shot.

Look what is and has been happening...

The seeds were planted back in the days of Wilson and FDR and the philosophy was passed along with the torch from generation to generation....What is happening to day almost mirrors what Stalin did in Russia..Russia, Hitler and Mao were all strange bedfellows....for a time.....The environmentalists and rabid leftists and radical islamists are all 'strange bed fellows today"..
What is being proposed is a progressive noose being tightened around the neck of the American people while they sleep and rant and rave over their select distractions...

Communism never fell, Russia may have collapsed...but to cite the founder of Greenpeace who stated that the environmental movement had been co-opted by the communists flooding out from behind the Iron Curtain....the ideology is alive and well and has spread across the face of this nation behind the manipulation of pacifism, and feel good jukism the same way cancer spreads through the human body.

O'brien and the minions who have been washed through the hallowed halls of indoctrination are nothing more than an ever growing army of "useful idiots' many too dumbed down to even KNOW this is what they protect and promote....Not too different than "go along with the herd"....a passenger in the back seat of a get away car....that takes off with the loot and the robbers..who KNOWS or DOESN'T that something happened..and is there because of the friendships and the pay off of the loot.....They will all see the end of their usefulness one day..and will majorly REGRET IT.

GREAT analysis, justme16. The disturbing part is that the radical leaders have been so completely insidious that most of their agents are the literal useful idiot, people who honestly don't know what they are or the consequences of the things they promote.

And when it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck. That's Obama and the Black Caucus and the Progressives. Communism has been re-defined as Progressive, It's just the language, you see, but leads to the same place--old U.S.S.R. prison camps or present day Cuba.

Communism is a political and economic philosophy, nothing more. (OK, it's a thoroughly discredited political and economic theory, but I'm trying not to split hairs). In fact, true communism - that is people living in comunal farms (hence "Comunism") where resources are distributed "from each according to his talent, to each according to his need" has never really existed on a large scale. So, as with all prohibitively impractical systems, it was modified to what we understand as "Communism" - the "Planned Economy" theory where the government decides how resources are exploited and distributed.

In the perfect "Communist" system the government controls the means of production; the government decides who works where and does what; the government decides what products are to be produced and distributed; the government decides the prices of goods, services, and labor; the government keeps all the fruits of economic activity (the money); and the government distributes that money "to each according to his need."

Considering that's the goal of the vast majority of Democrat Politicians, I'd say that Rep. West's statement of "80" communists badly underestimates the actual number.

I think you should do a little reading - ion actual books, which take time, focus, thought, and commitment to fct, and rely less on bumper sticker history that you read on blogs like this.

Some fireworks between Soledad "Victim In America" O'Brien and Congressman Allen West regarding West's statement that there were 80 congressmen who were Communists.

O'Brien is notorious for her more artificial than Katie Couric perky exterior while underneath it all she is seething disdain and contempt for her Republican guests.
