    Jews--Commies. Same thing back then. Check it out if that part of history hasn't been rewritten too.

    Needless to say, that the OP and other conservatives would lionize the likes of Joe McCarthy comes as no surprise. The same is true with regard to their ignorance of American history, or their revisionist understanding of it.

    Now I meant no offense. Some of my "pro Israel" opinions probably helped along that rumor I was Jewish.

    Also, I was already talking in reference to that post about missle locations. No biggie.

    Hey, what level of "accuracy" do we demand from McCarthy? Do folks actually have to have been convicted of being a spy? Just thinking the commies seemed better for China in '47?

    What did we decide...he was 100% right in finding folks who attended at least one communist party meeting?

    He was at least as good as the IRS was at singling out conservatives.

    Sen Joe McCarthy: American Patriot and Hero · · ??

    Come on, you guys, I checked!! It's not April Fool's Day !!

    I always wondered what happened to all those files of blackmail which he collected --

    -- you know, the ones he used to terrorize People in Power, and which kept him in his Postion of Privilege decades long after normal government officials had to retire.

    I think what's been proven is that the left, for all their whinging and hand-wringing, have not been able to find one person "targeted" incorrectly by Joseph McCarthy. Half the time, they're busy talking about people McCarthy had nothing whatsoever to do with (ie. Lena Horne).

    Every one of his "targets" were incorrect.

    Idiot knee jerkers never seem to have a fucking clue what you're yammering about.
