Rep. Allen West (R-FL) claims that "he's heard" up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members. Naturally, he wouldn't name names.
So let me talk about some of the things I've "heard" about Rep. West. He was forced out of the Army after abusing a bound detainee. He's urged top military officials to resign rather than follow the President's orders. He considers Islam the enemy. He says the President is a "low-level socialist agitator" and that Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schulz (D-FL) is "not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!" And he thinks Blacks are being kept on a modern-day "plantation" by the Democratic Party.
The difference is that, unlike Rep. West, I can back up what I've heard.
