History books are written by the winners. Remember that. McCarthy was right. But he was destroyed and lost the battle. He was then systematically demonized. But if people take a more logical neutral approach, they'll find that McCarthy was onto something. Hollywood and the Democrat Party were infested with Communists. They're still infested to this day. But hey, it doesn't matter. He lost. The Communists/Progressives won. Hence, the rest is 'History.'
