Rep. Allen West is not one to mince words. At a town-hall, he told the audience he heard that at least 80 members of Congress were Communists.

WASHINGTON — As many as 80 House Democrats are communists, according to Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

West warned constituents at a Tuesday town hall event that he’s “heard” that dozens of his Democratic colleagues in the House are members of the Communist Party, the Palm Beach Post reported. There are currently 190 House Democrats.

West spokeswoman Angela Melvin later defended West’s comments — and clarified to whom West was referring.

“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,” Melvin said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

Allen West spoke the truth and has defined the enemy.

    @ 1389AD:

    These are card-carrying, avowed Socialists. You’d think that the GOP could use that against them, but apparently not.

    @ Iron Fist:

    There are Republicans who are Socialists, that is why!

    Finally someone who has a back-bone speaks up about the Communists that nearly taken over the democratic party. If only more would speak out. Kudos to Allen West for telling for telling the truth.
    This should be front page news everywhere. Guess what I am only hearing *crickets*.

    The “conservatives” of today would have been considered flat-out Bolsheviks ninety years ago.

    That is more than enough to do great damage to our country and guess what that is exactly what they are doing.
    No wonder there is no action against our rogue president.

    Well, I think the number is closer to 190.
