I’d venture to say that that’s a conservative estimate. Some are likely communists and don’t even realize it. Expect a full fledged left-wing meltdown over Allen West’s comments at a Florida Town Hall. Whenever they’re confronted with the truth, you can always rely on the charges of “bat sh*t crazy” being leveled at the person making the accusation.
I mean how crazy would it be for members of Congress who belong to the party leaning towards Socialism, Marxism, and Communism to actually have members who belong to the party? I mean it’s not like Dems and the Communist party haven’t been associated before. It’s certainly not like members of the current administration have made clear their affinity for pinkoism. Anita Dunn, Van Jones, John Holdren anyone?
