Last year, U.S. Rep. Allen West proclaimed himself as “the modern day Harriet Tubman” who would lead black people away from the Democratic plantation into some sort of GOP land of milk and honey.

That craziness not only exposed West’s ignorance of black history and the perverse extent of his willingness to pander to his Tea Party masters, but showed his insensitivity to it as well.

And he’s at it again.

Earlier this month, the Republican congressman told people at a town hall meeting in Jensen Beach, Fla., that as many as 80 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party. When a reporter pressed him for names later, he had none; he simply accused the Congressional Progressive Caucus of being part of the Communist Party.

That’s right, the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

That’s the caucus that has been working on things like laws to fight massive foreclosures and too much corporate influence in elections; laws that try to even the playing field so that most Americans have a decent shot at a decent life in this country.
