Allen West Considers Leaving Socialist, Racist Caucus

Submitted by on August 31, 2011 – 5:51 pm EST13 Comments

The Congressional Black Caucus has been touring the country in recent weeks, attacking the “Tea Party,” rallying black people behind Barack Obama and agitating for socialist public job creation schemes.

The CBC overlaps considerably with the Congressional Progressive Caucus and is , if that is possible, even more socialist in its outlook.

Manning Marable, a leader of both Democratic Socialists of America and the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, wrote in 2003:

That the Congressional Black Caucus is the most progressive organized formation in national politics is not an accident. The CBC’s politics are what they are because of the base they reflect.
To the degree this base socially fragments and deteriorates and becomes splintered from the broad progressive movement is the degree to which the entire progressive movement is weakened.

Writing in Granma April 7 2009, Fidel Castro in The seven Congress members who are visiting us gave a history of the CBC and its relations with Cuba:

An important US political delegation is visiting us right now. Its members belong to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) which, in practice, has functioned as the most progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

The Congressional Black Caucus was founded in January 1969 by the 12 African-American legislators who were members of the U.S. Congress at that moment. During the first 50 years of the 20th century only four African Americans were elected to Congress.

Presently, as a result of the struggles they have waged, the CBC has 42 members. Several of its representatives have maintained very active and constructive positions on Cuba-related topics.

The almost lone exception to CBC’s socialism has been Florida freshman Allen West, the caucus’ only Republican.

Now after some particularly egregious remarks from the likes of Indiana’s Andre Carson, Congressman West is seriously reviewing his CBC membership.

This shouldn’t be a hard decision Lt. Colonel West.

    Sadly, judging from his words, Allen West is (or at least was) naive about the CBC, the CPC and their marxist/socialist agendas. For him to be unaware of their policies is just unimaginable to me.
    I suggest he stay in the CBC so he can learn for himself what a serious threat to our Constitution and our nation these people are.

  • larryG says:

    He is aware and when he became a member he said he wanted to attempt to add his input in an effort to change their direction.One thing I wish I saw more often and more emphatically is to remind everyone over and over and over that the Klu Klux Klan is a faction of the DEMOCRAT PARTY and the DEMOCRAT PARTY stood in the way of CIVIL RIGHTS FOR THE BLACK MAN WAY INTO THE MID 1960’s until LBJ realized they had to deal with it and that it might lead to some plantation voters, which it did.

    • DABIG says:

      You’re right larryG, however they’ve been hard at work attempting to change that ugly history of theirs. They’re claiming ALL the racist Dems left that party for the Republican party. They also claim that the Dem party of today is nothing like that old racist one. LOL

  • Allen West is All Talk and No Action.

    Obama has committed SO MANY CRIMES… Yet What has West Done? Nothing! Absolutely Nothing!

    What I would like to know is when is this self-seeking wealthy group going to do something for their fellow black citizens other that keep them in the slavery of HUD housing, food stamps and welfare? When are their constituents going to wake up to the fact that they have no future until they demand real education and work opportunities? Can’t they see that having out-of-wedlock babies to get a meager living off of a government check has de-masculated their men to the point that having a gun and killing someone is the only test of manhood. It is a sad situation. Martin Luther King must we weeping.

    • Marv says:

      Jean, I think you have fallen into the same mindset that Allen West has fallen into (and I LIKE Allen West). The CBC isn’t about race. It isn’t about helping “the black man”. It isn’t about doing something for their fellow black citizens.

      The CBC is about keeping them (their black constituents) down so they can give them the entitlements to keep them on board while blaming the system for “keeping them down” . It’s about spoon feeding black citizens the information that they want them to hear (such as Anrea Carson’s lynching speech or Rev. Wright’s “sermons”). It is about creating a hatred of the existing system while, at the same time telling them that marxism is the solution. The end result is people like this:


      And they vote.

      • Loretta says:

        No Marv, I TOTALLY agree with Jean. CBC panel are all of the wealth and keeping the black in slavery in a differant sence. They, (welfare and HUD recipience) are slaves still. Only having new mass-ah to answer to and having to be greatful to, for meager food and $ and a roof over their heads.
        I wish for the black man to wake up and take their manhood back and raise their families in love and pride for what this country will let a person be, if working hard and not allow their souls be bought.
        This is the worst betrayal the black communities have from their OWN CBC. To make their own people victims instead of pride and conviction of self worth.
        BYW–I also feel the media is more inclined toward LEFT. So where do they (CBC) get off blameing them. The blame game only goes so far.
        I would vote for Allen West in a heart beat!

    Pro-American Alan West’s membership in the anti-American CBC is the functional equivilent to membership in the KKK. It is like trying to mix the stench of excrement with the fragrance of roses. Kinda like negotiating with “moderate” terrorists hell bent on your extermination.
