Socialists & Communists:  Then & Now.  Enjoy the Show..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Remember when everyone gasped at accusations that Obama was a socialist who wanted a socialist nation?  Like that was about the biggest piece of slander that could ever be thrown at a politician?  Well.  The socialists are out of the closet now, Americans.  Obama’s socialist agenda has emboldened them to such an extent that they have officially gone public about their membership in the Democratic SOCIALISTS of America .  These people believe in the violent overthrow of our capitalistic economic system to solve our problems.  They believe in forcing private industry to do what they tell them to do.  They put themselves in the center of the power and as the dictators of policy.  Because they KNOW what is good for the rest of us.  Here is just one example I found in the San Francisco chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America website.  It concerns the energy ‘crisis’ (didn’t know we had one, but oh well..):

A simple recipe to end the crisis:

No federal action required.  Just add spine.

  • Impose an excess profits tax on the profiteers.
  • Seize the plants, transmission lines, and anything else attached to the California soil.
  • Revoke the corporate charter of PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E.  States charter corporations to serve the public interest.  All those companies have served only their own interest for way too long.[3]
  • Prosecute the individuals and companies responsible.[4]
  • Repeal the “deregulation” law.
  • Create state and local public power authorities”

Pay special attention to the “seize the plants..” statement.  Do you think they mean they will simply ask for the power plants?   Also, “Repeal the deregulation law”.  Um.  That mean’s:  make it all more central so that it can be controlled by a small number of people.  How about the, “Prosecute the individuals & companies…” part?  Sensing any tyranny here?

I found this little gem by looking one minute under the San Francisco charter.  Looking for one other minute, I came across another little gem– one aimed at our youth:

What is Democratic Socialism?

To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy
must be radically transformed, toward greater economic and social democracy, so that ordinary Americans can
participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism
go hand and hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken
root, the vision of socialism has taken root as well—everywhere but in the
United States. This is due to misrepresentations of socialism that have been
popularized by the business community in this country.”

“Young people are greatly needed in today’s struggles as well: to gain universal
health care coverage, to build stronger labor unions, to strengthen and
universalize welfare benefits, and to hold multinational corporations
responsible for their actions. Through the socialist movement and the Democratic
Socialists of America you can help build a progressive majority and become part
of the solution to social and economic injustice here and abroad.”

Ahhh… nothing like teaching our youth to hate their own country, huh?  We are the richest citizens in the world- we also have the richest ‘poor’ in the world- at least one flat screen t.v. & at least one cell phone per ‘poor’ household.  Gosh, I guess Cuba, Russia, China & Venezuela are so much better at raising people from poverty, right?  The most interesting part is that while promising that the ‘worker’ will be the ones to make the all the decisions, they don’t mention the sheer logistical impossibility of that promise.  Can you imagine asking ALL the people about ALL the decisions?  um, hum…  Note that every country mentioned had big armies & secret police?  um hum… Brain washing is KEY to giving up your freedom- for the promise of… more freedom?

Gosh, just think what I would find if I really looked hard.

And yet.  Here is a list of congressmen who openly declare themselves for this Democratic Socialists of America.  If you find your congressman here, be sure to write them and/or call them and let them know you won’t vote for them again- also to state your disgust at their brazen traitorousness.  After this treasonous list are links that will give you everything you need to contact your senator and/or representatives, including a form letter you can modify, copy & paste into the email portion of your congressmen’s websites.

Dear XXX,

My husband & I are really very disgusted that you are part of the Democratic Socialists of America Party.  We will not vote for you again as you support such a radical change of our Democratic Republic & capitalistic society that has raised the living standard of every American so successfully.  We, as your constituents, have no desire to be a socialist country.  Shame on you for working to that end.

Sincerely,

  1. Here’s a good lesson for kids…Have them give up weekends and or school vacation time. Give them chores…hard ones, ones they have to sacrifice their personal time for. Yes, you will pay them and pay them pretty good according to the work, the effort. Then on payday….pay them and tell them to give HALF to the neighbor kids. They’ll say….”WHAAATTTTT???!!! They didnt’ earn this, I did!!!!!” ….then relate it to Socialism.

      • Well they’re pretty smart for getting it at their age but look at their Mom so no surprise there. Lol…no, I wouldn’t do that to my son, I was just explaining to my 13 year old as an analogy. I find when they hit 13/14…..you have to make examples extremely quick and to the point if you want them to hear you…teen hormones are a powerful thing.

  2. Good job Little Rebel.

    Identify the BUMS and throw them out. Progressives will never change their position. The have only one goal in mind – dissolve the United States into the American Union.

    • Whitey, you are 100% right on that score. What amazes me is the boldness with which they show themselves. They clearly feel the political & cultural environment is open to this information. I sure hope they bet wrong.

      • You’re so funny….you’re like me ….you know its a bad word but your heart screaming it….sort of like when I say f’in or aholes or whatever. I don’t know what enrages me more , the bums we need to throw out or the people who keep voting them in. I’m really quite disheartened…I won’t go down easy but I only see people like Ron Paul and Herman Cain as leaders for us. It smells like birth pangs, it looks and feels like birth pangs but could it really be we are nearing the end?

      • Hi Denise- sorry for the long time between posts & answers! I have been on a fabulous camping trip & vacation for the past two weeks. I LOVE Herman Cain and will support him 100%. Ron Paul is interesting, but he seems to go off the deep end with foreign policy sometimes! But I agree: these guys are not affiliated with any sleeze, which makes either of them (& Bachmann) better than the rest.

      • Yeah been watching both of them closely. My sons and I were just down at GA Straw Poll. I support Paul first, then Cain. Both on the ticket would be good. I sent you a couple of emails. RP is correct with his foreign policy. He consistently refers to the Constitution. He has never wavered from his positions in 30 years. He is unbelievably intelligent. He cannot be bought by anyone and he is only congressman who refuses the pension as he says it would be immoral for him to accept. He is right about Audit the Fed. I do know Cain used to work for the fed. At one point he said there was no reason to audit Fed then recently changed mind so I don’t know why that is. The corruption is astounding. We’re in big trouble. You have to go to you tube to see RP and all of his interviews. Mainstream media are scared to death as are the Globalists. Their pick is Rick Perry. Their pick was BO. Rick Perry is DANGEROUS and a flip flopper. RP foreign policy is that we do NOT belong in all of these wars and he is right. Our military is for OUR protection, not to police the world. If we were under attack, he would not hesitate to retaliate. What is being done with our military around the globe is criminal. I could go on and on for pages. Anyway, glad you enjoyed your vacation. I forgot what that was but look forward to one some day.
        Denise

  4. I am very much afraid that the American Public will accept these facts as they have done in everything else that they have been told. I just don’t think there is enough people that “GIVE A DAMN”, anymore. ” AINT IT A SHAME “

  5. you know its funny that most of the communists on this list come from the places you expect. NY CA IL OH MI ME LOL…I say we just build walls around those leftist states and let them cannibalize each other.

  6. I liked the article, it helps people to identify good congressmen to vote. The ones who really try to make the US a more socialist country. I’ll never understand why people see that as a bad thing.

    • let me guess, Lady. You are a single mother who needs a handout right? I’ll put money on it that you didn’t pay your dues like the rest of us and think it’s all someone else’s fault that you are broke and don’t have health insurance. The only people who love socialism are those too lazy to take care of their own lives and want someone else’s money. Either that, or they are incredibly rich people who know that it won’t be their pockets that will get picked. THEY are hoping to be the dictators. Look at history, Lady, and then you will see why everyone (with any education or sense) thinks socialism is bad.

    • In homage to all the ridiculous lefty protest chants I offer this for your next whinefest (don’t forget the fromage) “Other people’s money, other people’s money, not having to earn it, tastes sweeter than honey.”

      SING IT WITH ME NOW!!! “Other people’s money……”

      While Benjamin Franklin wisely said this:

      “Poverty often deprives a man of all spirit and virtue; it is hard for an empty bag to stand upright”

      He also wisely said this:
      “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” – Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, November 1766
      Too bad they don’t teach real economics in public schools anymore, but hey, if they did, who would buy their drivel?

  7. How is this possible, do they not have to take an oath of office, does the oath mot mean anything. I know the oath requries you to swear alleglance to the United States Constitution. have I missed something?

    • tspacer,

      Their oath only means that they have to uphold their office. If the American people vote for a brand of socialism that doesn’t contradict the Constitution, then guess what? We get socialism. Further, look at Obama now. He is now saying that the Supreme court may not rule a law unconstitutional when THAT in fact is their sole purpose- to determine what laws are constitutional or not. What does this mean? Socialists & Progressives are trying to disregard the Constitution altogether. Keep a watch out for the following phrase: “The Constitution is a ‘living document’ and must change with the times.” That, my friend, is when your rights have gone down the toilet and socialism (actually, Progressivism) is right around the corner. Ignorance of the constitution, the rights is gives us and the separation of powers between the Executive, Legislative & Judiciary is the true evil in our nation right now. People need to educate themselves. Otherwise, these socialists will do whatever they want. Especially if lazy Americans keep wanting magic money from the government- rather than taking care of themselves and their own.

      • I understand that the original intent of our constitution with the three co equal branches of government, was our check & balances, than of course the ballot box. The founding fathers did not take in account if all three branches conspire, to create an end result. I believe this is what you are saying, besides the ballot box, what options do we have?

      • Revolution would not be my first choice, this bloated corrupted bureaucratic ticking bomb we have for a government is so top heavy, a push in the right direction, it would topple like a house of cards. There is enough of us to where we can shut this country down overnight.Stop paying your mortage, buying gasoline, power bill, water bill, taxes, don’t go to work. Force these corrupted bastards out of office, & to be held accountable. If someone has a better ideal I’ll listen.

      • tspacer, my answer was somewhat tongue in cheek. Whenever violence is a part of any revolution, it gets co-opted by nefarious elements. Gandi led one of the most effective revolutions in human history. Ultimately, I can not help but believe that God is the only answer. We need to turn toward God for the answers. There isn’t a real option outside of God that can save our nation. We are trapped within the power structures and the lock hold on the media of the Progressives. We simply could never coordinate any kind of revolution- peaceful or violent- without proper communication. The internet is the only way today- but even it is under attack with Lieberman’s Cybersecurity & Internet Freedom Bill, which is quietly on the Senate floor as I type. And almost no Americans even know it is. Tspacer, Christians need to build their faith & look to God. THAT is the only REAL solution…

  8. Here is a bit of history that will blow your mind ::
    Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech:

    “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…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

      • I do! and I’m trying to inform my family and friends. You know what I find is that people that know somewhat about God! are easier to talk to!

      • smiles, Jewels! I feel the same way. I think it stems from the fact that people who love God also love the TRUTH. If you love the truth, then you don’t have ulterior motives. People who don’t have ulterior motives are fun to talk to because you can be at ease and just get to know them….

  9. Thanks so much for everyone who assisted you on this article. Great read Shorty..I’ve started following you on FB and have shared this with all my family/friends also on FB. One that isn’t on that list but I feel would be close (or a closet Socialist) is Senator Claire McCaskill of MO. She votes everything in favor of Obama. With any luck we will vote her out in 2012 and replace her with a true patriot and Republican – Sarah Steelman.

    • You are welcome Speaknoworforeve. Sadly, however, I don’t deserve a whole lot of credit. This information has been out there for a long time now. As I have said over and over again, the media is 100% owned & operated by six or seven (depends on how you look at it) groups- all Progressives. Read my article, “Who is Rupert Murdoch & who owns the news”. Believe me, it will blow your mind when you see how Americans are being manipulated. As long as these things are not reported by the big outlet, they aren’t ‘real’ to people. I have had this article around for a long time. We bloggers have known about these open socialists for quite some time. But I am glad that a prominent Congressman has made this public. Please look into the Murdoch article. You will be a little scared, I promise you.

  10. The photo of “Back Off SS” the person in the center is Harry Reid, Sen. Maj. Leader, not Hon. Bernie Sanders (VT) as noted.

    • You are correct. However, Bernie Sanders is off to the right. Bernie Sanders is the self proclaimed socialist, not Harry Reid (although he would definitely qualify in my book). That is why Reid isn’t mentioned. This article is about SELF PROCLAIMED socialists. This is not MY opinion.

    • I found this list when fact checking Allen West’s recent statement. It is fair game for their opponents in 2012 to request confirmation, and receiving no denial, publicize their involvement in this party. And you slide show is appropriate. The Third Reich was socialist as well. Thanks for a good essay and visual collection.

      • Peter, their enrollment in this party is 100% public knowlege. They didn’t care if anyone knew. They are proud of it.

        People would argue that the Third Reich was facist, not socialist- but they are all beasts of the same nature. They both lead to dictatorship due to the complete inability of a mass of people to make decisions. Our democratic REPUBLIC is the best way for a nation to make decisions and yet, preserve individual liberty. That being said, dictatorships can make faster ones. Hence, Obama’s rush to legislation- if he loses his majority, he loses his chance to pass devastating, unconstitutional legislation. If the dems take the majority again, it will be quite terrible for our nation.

        So much unconstitutional legislation (search & seizure checkpoints within US borders, gun control in 5 southern states in reaction to Fast & Furious, etc) has been passed without the knowledge & consent of the American people- if people knew, they would fire every Progressive in WA (believe me when I say that there are Progressives in both parties- but most are Dems).

      • This is why I’ve begun switching to the term “Collectivists” that a few others are using. All too often a game of whack-a-mole ensues when mentioning thier ideology (socialists, marxists, leninists, nazis maoists, obamabots, etc) which no doubt is a planned tactic, as if getting the name wrong of a Duggar child matters when addressing who their parents are.

  11. The return of Mc Carthyism? How can you try and use fear. That is exactly why you accuse the other side of doing . Using pictures of Stalin really shows how little you know. He murdered millions of his own people and kept the wealth for members of govt. and special friends . It sounds like that is what you are advocating instead of a bipartisan solution to the mess we have been in for a decade. Jane Fonda, Iust have missed when she was in Congress!!

    • Elizabeth, I’m not sure what you are talking about. Stalin WAS a socialist and THAT is what socialists of EVERY instance of socialism in this world has EVER done- become dictators, steal money and terrorize their populations. Read your history. Further, I am not falsely accusing people of being socialists. Did you read the article? These are politicians who call THEMSELVES socialists. It is public knowlege that they have made clear to the world. If it scares you that they call themselves socialists, then you would be a sane person.

      Further, what bi-partisan solution are you referring to? I am simply telling you which politicians call themselves socialists!

      • Hi Louise, I have a link directly to the Democratic Socialists of America. It is an open organization. These people do not hide their membership and are quite proud of it…If my link doesn’t satisfy, then let me know what you are looking for & I will get it for you…

      • You wrote:

        I want to put this information in 2 newsletters but I need the direct link to the Democratic Socialist Party to maintain my credibility. I was unable to find a direct link on my own. Help!
        Louise

      • Ok, Louise, I have dug around a little. All I can say is, “Whew! No wonder you have had such a hard time! These people are slippery as eels!” Bottom line: as no one seems to dispute the publication, and the fact that this publication is widely cited in other news articles, I firmly believe the publication to be authentic. But there has been some interesting ‘morphing’ going on that appears to take the publication from public access- no doubt in reaction to the negative uproar it has caused. Here is some interesting information that can help you understand the links between the various socialist groups in the past with the DSA of today as well as the close ties it holds with the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), which is a clear political arm of the DSA.

        The DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) of today is better described as an organization, not a party. That being said, they published a document in 2009 (the one referenced in my article) listing the Congressional members of their organization. I see no denial from these members, nor from the DSA that this document is a fake. What is interesting is that they have dismantled the original web address (www.americansocialistvoter.com), which appears to be the original ‘press’ arm of the DSA and created a new one (http://dsausa.org/dsa.html)- this web address does not contain the document I published. This appears to me to be a clear effort to ‘bury’ the identities of the originally named members- or at least muddy the waters. It is possible that these names came from the roster of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=71&sectiontree=2,71). Until November 2002, the website of the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the DSA. The DSA claims to have helped form the CPC with Bernie Sanders. It was later moved to Bernie Sander’s personal account. An excellent historical account of the links between the DSA and the CPC is given by: Aaron Klien @ http://kleinonline.wnd.com/2012/04/11/history-lesson-congressional-progressive-caucus-was-founded-by-socialist-group-official-website-initially-hosted-by-democratic-socialists-of-america/#_edn1 . This article shows the intimate relationship between these two groups which help to substantiate the claims made by the DSA itself. Allen West’s comments have been softened only because the original DSA website & documents have been shoveled over within the past several years. The greatest proof is that the DSA posted these names themselves as a means to recruit more members. They have made a pledge to speak openly about socialism to combat the negative stereotype they have. This list was meant to a part of this new media attention. It backfired somewhat and everyone seems to be scrambling for political cover. Allen West’s comment has been directed toward the CPC since he originally made it due to this ‘burying’ activity.

        “Currently, only a single member of the United States Congress describes himself as a socialist: Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. The Social Democrats USA (SD USA), one of the successors of the Socialist Party of America, has expressed solidarity with the 76-member Congressional Progressive Caucus, which Sanders founded in 1991. It supports positions such as a living wage, universal health care, and the right of workers to form trade unions and engage in collective bargaining.” (http://www.socialdemocratsusa.org/index.shtml)

        Some of the following articles mention the ‘The following sites offer a historical perspective on the Socialist Party in our nation.

  12. There will be those who come to apply pressure upon you to recant or frighten you into silence.I pray that you will not recant nor be silenced.You are speaking up and out when so many cowards shake and hide.Thank you.I wish for you success in all your endeavors to awaken the people. Joseph Christopher

    • Thanks Joseph, for your support and for your warning. My father is just worried as can be for me. But, I fear no man. What can a man do to me when God is behind me? I believe in saying the truth. And I love this country with all my heart. I also believe that the VAST majority of Americans would faint if they knew what was really happening in America right now. But until the news is freed from the clutches of the Progressives (see my Rupert Murdoch article), most Americans will continue to have no idea- they will only find out about the unbelievable legislation that has been passed when the army & police start arresting the likes of me. And then them. The internet is the LAST chance of continuing to share free information. But this is actively under attack with Joe Lieberman’s Cybersecurity & Internet Freedom Bill. It is supported on both sides of the aisle, is being masked under ‘terrorism’ prevention and is being reviewed on the Senate floor as I type. But no one even knows about it. It is truly frightening. Spread the word, my fellow Americans! Things are quite desperate.

  13. My Boy, George Miller, or as I like to him as…Nancy Pelosi’s Lap dog…Did I miss Nancy’s name…Didn’t see it and then thought that maybe you had a Special List for Nancy…

    • Oh, Nancy & Reid not only belong on that list, but qualify for bonafide Progressives. HOWEVER, this list is not my opinion- these congressmen & women OPENLY proclaimed their socialist memberships. They are not ashamed of it. They are proud of it. Nancy & Reid do not officially proclaim their leanings and have not actually joined the Democratic Socialist Party. Therefore, they are not on this list. If this list was just my OPINION, they would be there. But remember progressives have more in mind than just socializing America- they want to end it in favor of a greater union- think United Nations, American Union or….what the heck, the New World Order…

  14. I would love to print parts of your article/list in our Republican Women Newsletter as well as the Northern California Tea Party Patriots web sites and blogs. I won’t print anything without having a link to the source so I can “trust but verify” Would you be willing to share your source? May I have permission to reprint?

    You go girl!!

    Louise

    • You have my full permission. I would like to spread the news to whomever wants it. I did link to all my sources in the article. Is there any information in my article that is not referenced to your satisfaction? If so, please let me know and I will get that link for you! I, too, will never print anything not properly referenced. Especially in politics. These names come from the actual membership role of the Democratic Socialist Party! These people are OPEN about their beliefs. If this article was based on my OPINION, I would have thrown many more names on that list!

    • Louise, as you seem to have a larger platform than I, please look at these articles which contain the most alarming information.

      1) Who is Rupert Murdoch and Who Owns the News In this article, I did research through the stock market to discover who owns ALL American (and thus, most of the world) news. I document (with links to the stock market) that ALL news, movie studios, magazines, etc. is owned by six or seven (depending on how you look at it) groups and/or families. All Progressives who wish to end our nation. This is the number one problem to the conservative cause. We can not get proper news on a massive scale. We are literally being lied to and tricked every single day. Only the Internet remains free, BUT:

      2) The entire technological structure of the Internet is being taken over by the United States government. This sounds like an exaggeration, but it is not. I have read the entire Joe Lieberman Cybersecurity & Internet Freedom Bill and have discovered that it plans to bring ALL hardware, software & even the components such as processor chips under government control. Spy software will be implemented throughout the Internet by the U.S. government. In the name of anti-terrorist efforts, this bill is fully supported by the majority of Republicans & Democrats. It is ON THE SENATE floor as I type. It will pass unnoticed by the American people because the Progressive owned news will not report on it. Please look at my fully referenced article: An In-depth Analysis of Lieberman’s Cybersecurity Bill 2011: Giving Birth to Big Brother”

  15. “The only people who love socialism are those too lazy to take care of their own lives and want someone else’s money. Either that, or they are incredibly rich people who know that it won’t be their pockets that will get picked.”

    disagree. plenty of people are willing to give up a little to help those who are struggling. and many of the incredibly rich are part of that group. so i think you’re exaggerating with this part.

    also, about that socialist list, be sure about the facts. this morning i read all about how obama bypassed congress and gave 1.5 billion to a muslim group in egypt. after doing some fact checking, turns out that the money was given to the egyptian government. i’m not saying i’m happy about that money given to egypt – but it’s very different from giving it to a muslim group. it was a lie put forth by a senatorial candidate who later admitted that he “could have been more precise.”

    bottom line – too many lies are intentionally put out there by people who are hoping that the lie will spread and catch on, stick in people’s minds.

    i’m not saying you’re lying, no way. but i’m saying that maybe the place where you got that list might not be legitimate.

    • You said, “plenty of people are willing to give up a little to help those who are struggling. and many of the incredibly rich are part of that group.”

      I couldn’t agree more- but that is NOT socialism! Americans give more to poor people around the world than every other country combined. And we give it voluntarily. Socialism is the FORCED re-distribution of wealth. And the elite at the top of that nasty scheme NEVER give a dime. That is just history. There are NO POOR PEOPLE in America. None. Why fix what isn’t broken? Especially if fixing it will break it?

      When asked a similar question by another reader concerning the validity of the report, I did some in depth research on the matter. Based on what I found, I feel confident that this list is correct. There may be one person who has retired since the list was printed, however. Please feel free to follow my research links to your own satisfaction.

      Bottom line: as no one seems to dispute the publication, and the fact that this publication is widely cited in other news articles, I firmly believe the publication to be authentic. But there has been some interesting ‘morphing’ going on that appears to take the publication from public access- no doubt in reaction to the negative uproar it has caused. Here is some interesting information that can help you understand the links between the various socialist groups in the past with the DSA of today as well as the close ties it holds with the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), which is a clear political arm of the DSA.

      The DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) of today is better described as an organization, not a party. That being said, they published a document in 2009 (the one referenced in my article) listing the Congressional members of their organization. I see no denial from these members, nor from the DSA that this document is a fake. What is interesting is that they have dismantled the original web address (www.americansocialistvoter.com), which appears to be the original ‘press’ arm of the DSA and created a new one (http://dsausa.org/dsa.html)- this web address does not contain the document I published. This appears to me to be a clear effort to ‘bury’ the identities of the originally named members- or at least muddy the waters. It is possible that these names came from the roster of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=71&sectiontree=2,71). Until November 2002, the website of the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the DSA. The DSA claims to have helped form the CPC with Bernie Sanders. It was later moved to Bernie Sander’s personal account. An excellent historical account of the links between the DSA and the CPC is given by: Aaron Klien @ http://kleinonline.wnd.com/2012/04/11/history-lesson-congressional-progressive-caucus-was-founded-by-socialist-group-official-website-initially-hosted-by-democratic-socialists-of-america/#_edn1 . This article shows the intimate relationship between these two groups which help to substantiate the claims made by the DSA itself. Allen West’s comments have been softened only because the original DSA website & documents have been shoveled over within the past several years. The greatest proof is that the DSA posted these names themselves as a means to recruit more members. They have made a pledge to speak openly about socialism to combat the negative stereotype they have. This list was meant to a part of this new media attention. It backfired somewhat and everyone seems to be scrambling for political cover. Allen West’s comment has been directed toward the CPC since he originally made it due to this ‘burying’ activity.

      “Currently, only a single member of the United States Congress describes himself as a socialist: Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. The Social Democrats USA (SD USA), one of the successors of the Socialist Party of America, has expressed solidarity with the 76-member Congressional Progressive Caucus, which Sanders founded in 1991. It supports positions such as a living wage, universal health care, and the right of workers to form trade unions and engage in collective bargaining.” (http://www.socialdemocratsusa.org/index.shtml)

  16. Don’t forget that hitler, too. was the head of the socialist party before he became the tyrant on the throne. . Even as his minions were tumbling off the cliff to their demise, they STILL loved, adored, cherished and DEFENDED that evil beast. Just take a look at some of his glassy eyed crowds during his speeches, and compare them to obama’s glassy eyed minions. Like a re-creation. It’s uncanny. Too bad we Americans have become so stupid. Thank a so-called “teacher”, a so-called “professor’ and the National Education Association (NEA) for the deliberate (and extremely effective) dumbing down of an entire Nation. It is nothing less than TREASON what those beasts have done here, yet our citizens remain mum (and stupid). America is no longer the unified force of greatness, the beacon of hope and the torch of liberty that it once was, and our future looks quite bleak at this point. Thank a teacher today. They should be tried, convicted and punished accordingly for their TREASON.

    • While I understand your heated feelings on this matter, I have to defend individual teachers- not the unions and not the group as a whole. But there are truly good hearted teachers out there who are completely hamstrung by the same unions, Dept. of Education that we abhor. My complaint with teachers as a group (and as individuals w/in that group) is their blind loyalty to unions & easy money. They have gone too far and have presented a situation where the Teachers Unions must be broken. The department of education is another matter entirely. It is truly evil- it is what you say it is: a treasonous body that must be obliterated.

      • Sleep in a pile of kaka and one smells like kaka.

        Those who “abhor” what’s going on ought to grow a spine and speak up.

        Otherwise, they are accomplices to TREASON.

        If I stood with the KKK, even though I “claim” to detest their message, would I not be a racist pig?

        I refuse to defend those with NO SPINE. Let them all be convicted where they squat

      • Pitbull, we will just have to part ways on things. I feel that your anger & bitterness are no longer constructive. There is a time for fighting. But it isn’t all the time. I appreciate your comments on my blog, but your tone is not what I want for it. Now, I know what you are thinking, but like I said, I can’t walk th same road as you.

    • You are right, of course, Pitbull. But I would like to encourage you to not lose faith in your fellow Americans. They are still out there. The news (100% owned by the same people who wish to destroy our nation) intentionally only portrays the biggest American losers they can. They never show the good heartedness, the massive charity, the strength or the honor that the vast majority of Americans still retain. Remember 9/12? THAT’s America. The Progressives are attempting to kill our faith in each other so that when they finally come with their armies, we will think we are alone- that everyone else agrees with what is happening. Don’t allow that to happen! See my “Who is Rupert Murdoch & Who Owns the News” article where I prove the private ownership of ALL American news by 6-7 families and groups. It is a clear conspiracy. Americans are only ASLEEP and overconfident. But when the military starts arresting them, they will wake up, fight back and the Progressives will lose.

    • For many years most of Latin America was led by center-right U.S backed conservative leaders whom privatized most aspects of society. However, the result of this was not to increase opportunity but in fact made worse statistics on health, nutrition and education. However. since the turn of the century we have seen Socialists elected all over the continent and Latin America’s poverty rate has fallen very significantly. How do you explain the failure of the U.S backed conservative policies as well as the success in at least areas of health . nutrition and education of these leftist leaders whom are getting re-elected in landslides? Chavez to this day is leading his opponent in all polls. opponents even not only admit he is the most popular politician in the country but that his social programs have done good. Daniel Ortega and the Sandinistas re-elected by a 35 point landslides, all outside polls not only backing those results but E.U. election observers deeming the election as mostly above board. Lefist to left leaning governments elected and re-elected in Argentina. Brazil. Paraguay Uruguay. Ecuador.Bolivia. Dominica.. Peru and almost the last election in Mexico where the right wing at least will lose next election.

      • easy to answer these questions. Please don’t say ‘left leaning’. What does that mean? But as you bring up Chavez- an outright communist/socialist, let me address that. First, you are completely out of your mind when you say that Socialist policies have helped the economies of these countries. The government take over of the large companies in these nations have completely destroyed those companies, and hence, the economy of those nations. Second, you assume that elections are fair in these nations. With the military to back these socialist tyrants, rigged elections are only to be expected. Third, what Chevez did is to give money & benefits to the poor by literally stealing it from the rich & middle class. While this buys the votes from a predominantly poor nation, (your argument that conservative politics & economic policies MADE them poor is a joke- they were ALWAYS poor), the overall economy is in the tank. Eventually, there will be no more money to buy the poor vote- but these guys could care less at this point. They have their seat of power, they have ALL the money and they have the military leaders bought and paid for. All this ensure that they will keep their power. Then the poor people will be in the EXACT place, or worse, than before the great lies of socialism were foisted upon them.

        Please don’t quote polls in countries where lack of free speech, torture & dictatorship are the rule. It only shows your complete naiveté and even more, your WILLFUL blindness to good ol’ fashioned common sense.
