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.
