"I have a copy of The Soviet World of American Communism by Klehr, Haynes, and Anderson. It is chilling, and utterly destroys the "witch hunter" label appended to McCarthyites. "
McCarthy's mistake was he UNDERESTIMATED the number of communists in the government, media and Hollywood. Anti-Communists have never fared well in the press from Nixon to Reagan.
The McCarthy lesson still echos today. Those the media honchos demonize are telling the truth about some ox they don't want gored. Current examples include Starr and Buchanan.
Another bastion of subversion is academia. By slowly purloining impressionable minds, the lefties create a foundation that secures them the future.
And finally, the ghouls own the media. Once again, they work en masse to poison our discourse and create false impressions.
Everything McCarthy said has turned out to be right, and the cancer advances unabated.
