And people say ATS isn't right wing. This is just a laughfest. What West said is idiocy. It's straight up stupid. the commie card hasn't been played since the 50's and if he had done it back then he would have been thrown out of Congress for spouting lies.

Most people who talk about Communism have no damn idea what it is. It's some taboo they know not to even remotely open their mind to because mom and daddy said not to. Deny Ignorance indeed, let's just call this site "Vote GOP".

The progressive movement is the antithesis of our constitutional republic.

Oh? And how is that?

No, it doesn't exist. Commies aren't waiting the wings of the democratic party ready to pounce. There are no commies in there. You guys don't even know what real commies are.

This is from the Constitution of the Communist Party USA:


Founded in Chicago in 1919, the Communist Party of the United States has an outstanding history in the struggles for peace, democratic rights, racial and gender equality, economic justice, union organization, and international solidarity.


While that constitution makes no reference of civil liberties, it does speak to civil rights:


Section 3...It shall be the obligation of all Party members to struggle against homophobia and all manifestations of discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people, and to fight for their full social and civil rights.

....

SECTION 6. All Party members working in coalitions and mass organizations (such as labor unions, farm, community, civil rights, fraternal, religious, etc.) shall promote and strengthen the unity and leading role of the working class, and fight for the broadest possible unity of the working class and its allies, in the course of fighting for their needs


While their site makes no mention of global peace and security, and does not use the phrase "environmental protection", here is what they do state:


The living standards of workers and the natural environment on which life depends are under constant attack due to the drive for maximum profits inherent in capitalism. Our party fights for jobs and economic security, a decent and rising standard of living, peace, justice, equality, a sustainable environment, gay rights, health care, education, affordable housing, the needs of seniors, democracy, and a fulfilling life for everyone, with socialism as our goal. Only through the abolition of the capitalist system and the socialist reorganization of society can exploitation of human beings by others, and the evils of oppression, war, racism, environmental degradation, and poverty be ended. We seek to build a socialist society which puts people and nature before profits.


Here is the problem with this language regardless of who is using it and by what name they go by: Economic justice is just another word for legal plunder. Civil rights are legal rights which means they are rights granted by government and what can granted legally can be legally taken away.

I actually have no problem with the language of promoting global peace and security (although I find security to be far more illusory than its polar opposite which is power) and I have no problem with the language of environmental protection or environmental degradation, but do recognize that certain ideologues are using this phrase quite a bit to justify taxation.

McCarthyism is alive and well, thanks for setting us back to the 1950's Mr. West.

We knew the GOP had nothing to run on except FEAR MONGERING and this only proves it.

I think what is more "alive and well" is this:


Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein, Obama’s appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, outlined a plan for the government to infiltrate conspiracy groups in order to undermine them via postings on chat rooms and social networks, as well as real meetings, according to a recently uncovered article Sunstein wrote for the Journal of Political Philosophy.

As we have often warned, chat rooms, social networks and particularly article comment sections are routinely “gamed” by trolls, many of whom pose as numerous different people in order to create a fake consensus, who attempt to debunk whatever information is being discussed, no matter how credible and well documented. We have seen this on our own websites for years and although some of those individuals were acting of their own accord, a significant number appeared to be working in shifts, routinely posting the same talking points over and over again.

At long last have you no shame, Mr. West. Wait, too early?

If there was a communist under every House bed, and Mr. West knew about it, why did he wait so long to say it? 80 House offices have massive paintings of Karl Marx and Lenin in their lobbies and in the member's offices, is that what he's saying.

Seriously, Allan West has a screw loose. Really, a screw loose. The GOP should distance themselves so far from him that you would need the James Webb telescope just to catch a glimpse of the guy letting the door slam on him on the way out.

Yes of course.

The economy is the best its ever been !

The housing market is superb !

Prices in general are great !

The entire population is happy !

More people are working than ever before !

99% have a lot of money saved !

Fascism is at its lowest level in history !

Homelessness is at record lows !

Crime is at the lowest level since the year zero !

The U.S. Congress (especially the 111th during the 2009/2010 session) has done all they can do for the majority of American citizens !

Tax revenues from the working class are at an all time high !

The government has done an excellent job in keeping the debt under control !

It Must be the Ømarx/Øcorporatist policies at their best !!

What else could possibly be responsible for the success of the country ?

I wonder if West has heard the response from the communist party.


The Communist Party responds

Communist Party USA does describe the Progressive Caucus as "our allies" on its website, and we found several other positive mentions of the Progressive Caucus on the site as well. But it also dishes out some criticism of Democrats in general as being "accommodationist."

There are no members of Congress who are members of the Communist Party, said Libero Della Piana, vice president of the Communist Party USA, which has fewer than 5,000 members.

Applicants have to apply through the national or local organizations and pay dues. Even if prospective members applied through a local group, Piana said he’d hear about it. (Generally, the party no longer issues cards. If someone asks for them, there are some older cards on hand.)

"Trust me -- if a member of Congress applied to join the Communist Party we would know about it," Piana said. "It would set up some red flags -- pardon the pun."


Allen West says about 80 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party

Well duh yeah! He makes no sense at all to me. He's a crackpot!

And you don't think that people idolize him?

Look at the kinds of people that are defended up and down on ATS on a daily basis. George Zimmerman. Ron Paul. Allen West. Andrew Breitbart.

I could go on and on and on.

For a site that denies ignorance, it is pushing a right-wing agenda whether it knows it or not.

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

-Norman Thomas

Scary.

I love Colonel West. He always just says it straight out. Doesn't hold back.
He isn't politically correct. God bless him ... he's a breath of fresh air.

Now that I said that .. he'll step in 'it' like the rest of the politicians ....
But for now ... I like him.

The Communist Party of Israel
maki.org.il/en/

The congress calls the members of the Communist Party of Israel (CPI), its supporters, members of the Young Communist League of Israel (YCLI), our partners in Hadash (the Democratic Front for Peace and Equality), friends and allies of the party – to strengthen the Communist Party of Israel, the party of class struggle, the party of Israeli-Arab partnership, the party of the struggle for an Israeli-Palestinian and Israeli-Arab peace that is total and just, the party of the struggle for the equality of the Arab minority, the party of the struggle for social justice and true democracy in Israel, the party of gender equality, the party of the struggle for socialism – the historical alternative to the regime of class exploitation, wars and discrimination.

The congress calls for the creation of broad based cooperation against the plans for a regional war that Netanyahu's government is promoting, against the continuing policy of settlements and occupation, against the strong attacks against democracy and the Arab community and its leaders, against the exclusion of women from the public sphere. Netanyahu's government is leading all of us to catastrophe, and we must not agree to be pushed in this direction. A strong communist party and broad based democratic Jewish-Arab cooperation are essential for halting this disaster. Member of CPI, Jews and Arabs, emphasized at the 26th congress our commitment to the principles of Marxism-Leninism and social justice. This is particularly correct at this time, when social distress grows heavier under the weight of the capitalist and imperialist crisis.


I am not sure they lobby in the US.
