Conservative accuses Democrats of being Communists

You knew it would happen with today's conservatives. They're so far right, they see liberals as the enemy and sooner or later they would start calling the opposition, "Communists."

At a town hall, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was asked whether there were any Communists in the Congress. He said this,

"It's a good question. I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."

From the Huffington Post.

Now I've been a Democrat for over thirty years. Not once did any Democrat I know ever espouse Marxist philosophies. There was never any talk of the government taking over peoples property. But see for yourself. Here's the link to the Congressional Prgoressive Caucus. See any devotion to Karl Marx?

This is more of the outright falsehoods that Conservatives spit out. Remember former presidential candidate Rick Santorum? He told the whopper about the Netherlands killing the elderly. West now moves into Joe McCarthy territory.

Rachel Maddow also made the call on this. She said in 2008, that sooner or later, the right-wing would start calling liberals, "Communists."
