    He had no idea what particular evil treasonous deeds they had done or were doing, but, given that liberals had given the bomb to Stalin it stood to reason that other liberals wished to do or were doing the same thing. Of course patriotic Americans wished him well, while liberals hated being exposed as treasonous.

    The liberal idea was to make America communist under the guise of liberalism so naturally they hated Joe for exposing liberalism for what it really was. They all took the 5th for obvious reasons. Similiarily, When Obama( a man who had 2 communist parents) was asked why he voted to the left of Bernie Sanders( an open socalist) he lied about it rather than take the 5th. He said," thats just me standing up to Geroge Bush." The left wing MSM fully supported his slick Harvard Law, near treasonous deception.


    Norman Thomas( socialist candidate for president):

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

    When democrats gained the majority in congress two years into Bush's 2nd term they went after Baseball players the same way McCarthy went after communists. What's the difference between steriod use in Baseball and communist influence in government? If you don't know you might as well vote for a democrat.

    Pop Culture educated Americans think Senator Joe McCarthy was evil incarnate. They probably don't know why they think that way, he just was. Why would Americans be taught that McCarthy was evil? Well, he was a republican and he questioned suspected communists in senate hearings during a democrat administration. Why would senate hearings offend people? Democrats questioned Baseball players about steriod in equally flamboyant senate hearings. Communism might be portrayed as a quaint but harmless movement but back in the 50's Communism was seen as the enemy of the Free World. McCarthy didn't have the power to "blacklist" hollywood writers. They were blacklisted because Hollywood was afraid movies were a thing of the past due to T.V. and they didn't want any more trouble after some writers were revealed as communists. They managed to blame the whole era on a single republican and the myth persists.

    yes they managed to make McCarthy and his methods the subject rather than their treasonous communist plots.
