Communism Is alive and well in Congress according to nutty Florida congressman

In a taste of what the fall 2012 campaign will look like, Florida Representative Allen West has announced that up to 80 House Democrats are secretly members of the Communist Party.

Now that the economy is doing better, it seems that the Birchers are surfacing, to be followed closely by the birthers, I suppose.

Conservative Congressman Allen West says Trayvon Martin case ‘is an outrage’

Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a high-profile conservative and one of two African-American Republicans currently serving in Congress has issued a statement lambasting Florida authorities for their handling of the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

West says in part: “From my reading, it seems this young man was pursued and there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him.”

I’m no expert in Florida law, but “stand your ground” surely doesn’t mean “pursue and shoot.”
