Congressional Progressive Caucus: Bloice's Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day 
April 12, 2012

'We hope the people of Florida's 22nd Congressional District will note that he repeatedly polarizes the American people instead of focusing on their interests. When people like Rep. West have no ideals or principles, they rely on personal attacks. The CPC is proud to stand up for economic equality and civil and human rights for all Americans. Congress is having, and will continue to have, an ongoing debate about job creation, home foreclosures and the issues that concern working families. But we will not engage in base and childish conversations that lower the high level of discourse Americans rightly expect from their representatives.'

Reps. Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva, co-chairs, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, in response to Rep. Allen West's claim that there are 85 communists in the
House of Representatives and his later contention that he was referring to members of Caucus.

  • Is Rep. West saying that those who promote job creation, education funding, voting rights and fight home foreclosures, and the murderous application of "stand your ground"in Florida have "communist" positions-such is to willy-nilly promote and complement the slandered communists and those friendly to and with them.
    Maybe, in his own way, Mr. West is exposing the bigotry of his leadership and the tea-party's-and the forward-looking explosiveness of voters, the progressives, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the communists and the Communist Party.
