Allen West Removed from Keynote Speaker Appearance for ‘Communist’ Comments

Representative Allen West, a Republican from Florida, called Democratic lawmakers ‘communists’ and it got him into a little bit of hot water recently. West was scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a fundraising event for his district chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Saturday. The NAACP decided to cancel the event and told West that he was not welcome to attend when it is rescheduled in the future.

“There’s a certain statement he made about Communists,” Jerry Gore, president of the Martin County NAACP, said “That statement alone … we do not represent that type of atmosphere.”

The event, which was to be a banquet, is going to be rescheduled by the NAACP for September 15 and it will feature a brand new keynote speaker. A spokesperson for West told reporters in the area that he understood why he was no longer wanted as the keynote speaker at the event.

West met with constituents at a town hall meeting earlier in the month of April, which is when he got himself into trouble by saying that 80 House Democrats “are members of the Communist Party. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.” Representative Barney Frank, a Democrat from Massachusetts, said in response that “not even Joe McCarthy would have said anything so stupid.” West did say afterwards that he has no regrets about the comments and the situation.

    Not really my friend in California Alone the majority of Democrats voted to allow Communist into government work. Which is like allowing Nazi’s into work. So why would a Republican denounce the issue. California is one of the only states that has voted for Communist Party members to be allowed into government work. Even though, they moto is to destroy Democracy and implement a German Socialist Hitler, Maoist, Stalinist, mono party type rule. California Democratic legislatures have been linked to the worlds biggest devastating legislation that has destroyed the West. From the savings and loans, to the .com to the mortgage legislation that all forced directed a whole nation into the service industry. So our production and export industries where destroyed. While the service union leader who no longer believes in a bipartisan Union, is funded by the Communist Chinese to keep placing service legislation as our main legislative economic direction. So not that hard to see that there are at least 80 Democratic Congressional folks who are Communist, as alone in California they voted to allow economic terrorist that admit to wishing to economically terrorize the US into government positions. Being part of Al Queada who wishes to economically destroy the USA, Part of the Nazi Party or the Communist Party is no longer a fire-able offense. Being part of a political party that wishes to destroy the US and preaches destruction of Democracy is not a fireable offense. In US history there has been more Communist terrorism and more US wars against Communist wish to create Hitler, Stalinist, Maoist regimes in the world than any other organization.
