Traveling on the road today, I got to see some of the best and some of the worst of America, right on CNN.
Who is the best and who is the worst?
Allen West is the best and Soledad O’Brian is the worst.
O’Brien has a long and sordid record of really bad journalism and is one of the most biased, even on CNN.
Allen West was her guest and she had to ask him about his recent comment that there are 70 or 80 communists in the Congress.
O’Brien played the video and as West quickly pointed out, she did not play the full video to show his entire comments.
West’s exact quote was, “there are 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party. They are called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
West nailed it but O’Brien remains clueless.
She immediately started mocking West, a true American hero. She asked if Keith Ellison is a communist.
Hell yes, he is a communist.
There are a lot of the Democrats who are. They embrace an ideology that has killed somewhere a billion people in the last century. These people believe that our rights are only that which the government allows us to have. They believe that life is simply a gift that the government gives us. They believe our right to speak is allowed, only if the government agrees. They believe our right to petition the government does not exist.
They believe we are slaves to the government and do not have the right to protect ourselves. They believe the government has the right to enter every aspect of our lives.
The media, people like Soledad O’Brien will not call these progressives as they have rebranded themselves on their ideology, but we real Americans should.
These people support an ideology that has created more poverty, tyranny and suffering that any other in history. Let’s look at the nations that the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus embrace. They love the old Soviet Union. This is the nation that invented the modern concentration camp. Tens of millions still lie in unmarked graves in the old Soviet Union. The same is true of China, the Communist nations of Asia. The same is true of Cuba and then there is the preeminent communist nation, North Korea.
North Korea has over 200,000 people in their gulags and is now working on not only nuclear weapons but missiles to deliver them as well.
Yet if you ask the 81 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, they are not the greatest threat in the world, America is. In their warped world view, the nation that has done more to help more people than any other nation in the history of the world.
The scary thought is that about 20% of the members of Congress are members of the Progressive Caucus.
What is even worse is that it is now hard to tell the difference between the Democrat Party and the Communist Party.
fortunateson, what is wrong? I have never seen you so quiet.
Judson, here is a very good post on Romney...I cannot see how the average American conservative voter could supporter can actually vote for him. He is no better than OBAMA. The GOP has sold us out! http://www.villagevoice.com/2012-04-18/news/Mitt-Romney-american-parasite/..here
One of the reasons I am still backing Newt, and refuse to back down on it.
You gotta wash em and dry em real good first. Don't you know nothing?
They are pissed at West for calling them commies, but they didn't say he was wrong!
Damn straight!!! You go Brother!!!
I have personally been trying to raise awareness to this very thing, do not think for one moment that there are not similar thinking individuals in the Republican party as well, America has been under attack by the communists for at least the last 40 years, Communist Goals of 1963 have not only been reviewed by congress but Archived...#15 in the goals states "Capture both political parties in the United States" It is at this time in our history that we have "GOT TO" bring awareness to this issue, and think about the man you are supporting as a nominee, it is absolutely no secret that Romney is very much a socialist, who has in the past supported many of the Communist Goals of 1963...# 26..Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural,healthy" Romney increased funding for homosexual education down to and including kindergarten..#27, Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with"social" religion. Discredit the bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch".Mitt Romney supported the passage of the non-discrimination Act, forcing churches to hire Homosexuals and transvestites or be faced with criminal fines or prosecution. #16 Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights, Romney recommended 36 people to be judges or magistrates, 23 of them were either registered democrats or unenrolled voters who donated to democrat politicians. these are just a few of the things that point me to conclude that Mitt Romney is not the conservative he claims he is today..
Trust is a huge factor for the American people towards our elected and if we have doubt, we all need to reconsider our support..I personally have no trust in Mitt Romney, it is the same burning discomfort I felt when Obama ran for president in 2008. My gut feeling was correct.
O'Brien is not a journalist. Period. Her disdain for West is blatant, but he nails it.
I would prefer to be called a Rebel.
I am so sick of people like Soledad who is a self-righteous B-----. I really wish there was some way we could humble people like her because they sure need it sorely.
And with leaders like Boehner and McConnell there is little difference between the GOP and the Democratds.
I would have to agree!
