[1/11/17] There was a loose statement that was commonly thrown around during the election: “The Democratic Party is the new American Communist Party”. Although one size does not fit all, this comment is essentially accurate.
To be accurate, the Democratic Party is the new Socialist Party. The Socialist Party is the first cousin to the Communist Party and both parties, to be covered in a future installment of this series, mutually make use of the same front groups. ALL OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS EMBRACE VIOLENT CHANGE OVER THE LEGAL PROCESS (documentation listed below).
The Progressive Caucus: A Communist Front Organization
The Progressive Caucus is an extreme radical, leftist, socialist/communist group which claims one senator, Bernie Sanders, and 70 democratic Congressman. It is also considered to be one of thr so-called “front organizations” for the Communist Party, and these front organizations are common and ubiquitous. In other words, they are everywhere. Further, this is not a new allegation in the modern era, former Congressman Alan West made this same allegation in 2012.
Spokeswoman Angela Melvin, speaking for Congressman, Alan West stated: “The congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom.”
The Congressman, himself, stated in response to a question on how many of his fellow members of Congress are Communists,, West replied:
“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.”
Democrats do not directly belong to the American Communist Partymas they are not so stupid to advertise their true intentions. However, many Democratic Congressmen, as I discovered do belong to front organizations, or close allies to the Communist Party and are actively endorsed by the Communist Party.
Facebook Rears It’s Ugly Censorship Face, Again!
In the aftermath of Benghazi, I was sent an excerpt from West’s Facebook page by a few readers who speculated that the killing of Stevens and his security detail was the result of a Communist plot. My Benghazi investigation did not take me anywhere close to these conclusions, but I thought they were noteworthy and were certainly reflective of the Obama administration as a whole, particularly Hillary Clinton, so, I saved the statement for any possible future reference.
Former Congressman West published his statement on his Facebook page and it read as follows:
“I stand by the point of my comments. The press wants to write gotcha stories and talk semantics, but just look at the words and actions of the Progressive Caucus. You can call them socialist, Marxist, communist or whatever you want, but the point is, they oppose free markets and individual economic freedom, they want to redistribute wealth, and they want to see the nation fundamentally transformed. Their policies are destructive and I will stand up to them regardless of the critics. Members of this Caucus lavished praise on Fidel Castro following a 2009 visit, just to name one example. The Communist Party USA claims the Progressive Caucus as its ‘ally.’”
Unfortunately, when one visits West’s page, even using the Wayback Machine, this is what you will be met with:

The Progressive Caucus
At the time that West made his allegations against dozens of Democrats for being members of this Communist Part front group, the organization was co-chaired by Minnesota’s U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison/ Where have you heard of Keith Ellison? He has attempted to seize control of the Democratic National Committee. He is a Muslim Brotherhood supporter. Ellison is a member of the Socialist Party.
