If we only had 80 commies in Congress we'd be living in a paradise of freedom and wealth.
GOP lawmaker says 75-plus Dems are communists
Republican Rep. Allen West said he believes 75-plus House Democrats are members of the Communist Party, a claim that echoed Joe McCarthy's unsubstantiated 1950s charges that communists had infiltrated the top ranks of the U.S. government.
The Palm Beach Post first reported the congressman's comments.
During the Cold War, McCarthy, a Republican senator from Wisconsin, claimed that communists and Soviet spies had burrowed their way into the federal government. He never produced the documentation to back up his claims.
BTW, kiddies, Joe McCarthy was right.
