Communism - McCarthy Was Right

On This Day: McCarthy warns of communists in State Department

Well, lets see. Trump giving Russians classified information, and selling out the US to an ex Soviet KGB agent. Then sends love letters to North Korea. Then A plane load of Republican Senators fly to Russia on the 4th of July to sell out the US to the Russians. Now we have Republican Senators openly taking money from Russian oligarchs, and brazenly allowing the Kremlin to interfere in our elections. Then the Secretary of State gives Crimea away to the Russians, and tells our ally, sorry, thats just the way it is, and lets Belarus have all of the Ukraine oil they want.

Damn. You're right. the commies have infiltrated the government. And it's so complete, they have an asset in the White House, assets in the State Dept., and assets in the Senate. They have effectively co opted the entire Republican party.

He wasn't right any more than the (D)'s were right in blaming the Russians for them running an absolutely awful candidate.

WOW!!!! Do you live in a fantasy world!
The last I checked, it's the "Socialist" left who were the threat to the USA's freedoms.

LOL this is one of the oldest troll threads on the internet. A variation on the "Hitler did nothing wrong" troll. People who post it know McCarthy was a toxic slime mold the same as anyone.

I started a thread on this subject in the History forum titled "Joseph McCarthy Was Right in Most Cases." It provides another example of the abject inability of liberals to deal with facts that destroy their cherished myths.

Right in most cases? What's that mean? He put his trash out on the correct day?

Both statements are lies, of course.

People who know the facts know that all the leftwing attacks on McCarthy were wrong. Soviet spies were probably behind all of them.

WASHINGTON -- Although Joseph McCarthy was one of the most demonized American politicians of the last century, new information -- including half-century-old FBI recordings of Soviet embassy conversations -- are showing that McCarthy was right in nearly all his accusations.

"With Joe McCarthy it was the losers who've written the history which condemns him," said Dan Flynn, director of Accuracy in Academia's recent national conference on McCarthy, broadcast by C-SPAN.


Using new information obtained from studies of old Soviet files in Moscow and now the famous Venona Intercepts -- FBI recordings of Soviet embassy communications between 1944-48 -- the record is showing that McCarthy was essentially right. He had many weaknesses, but almost every case he charged has now been proven correct. Whether it was stealing atomic secrets or influencing U.S. foreign policy, communist victories in the 1940s were fed by an incredibly vast spy and influence network.

Joe McCarthy was an American hero. Trump should award him a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Only in 1995 did the United States government officially reveal the existence of the super-secret Venona Project. For nearly fifty years American intelligence agents had been decoding thousands of Soviet messages, uncovering an enormous range of espionage activities carried out against the United States during World War II by its own allies. So sensitive was the project in its early years that even President Truman was not informed of its existence. This extraordinary book is the first to examine the Venona messages—documents of unparalleled importance for our understanding of the history and politics of the Stalin era and the early Cold War years.

Hidden away in a former girls’ school in the late 1940s, Venona Project cryptanalysts, linguists, and mathematicians attempted to decode more than twenty-five thousand intercepted Soviet intelligence telegrams. When they cracked the unbreakable Soviet code, a breakthrough leading eventually to the decryption of nearly three thousand of the messages, analysts uncovered information of powerful significance: the first indication of Julius Rosenberg’s espionage efforts; references to the espionage activities of Alger Hiss; startling proof of Soviet infiltration of the Manhattan Project to build the atomic bomb; evidence that spies had reached the highest levels of the U.S. State and Treasury Departments; indications that more than three hundred Americans had assisted in the Soviet theft of American industrial, scientific, military, and diplomatic secrets; and confirmation that the Communist party of the United States was consciously and willingly involved in Soviet espionage against America. Drawing not only on the Venona papers but also on newly opened Russian and U. S. archives, John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr provide in this book the clearest, most rigorously documented analysis ever written on Soviet espionage and the Americans who abetted it in the early Cold War years.

On This Day: McCarthy warns of communists in State Department

McCarthyism was the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence. Guilt by association was the rule of day. Hundreds of Americans were accused of being "communists" or "communist sympathizers"; they became the subject of aggressive investigations and questioning before government or private panels, committees, and agencies. Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs were often wildly exaggerated. Books that might be interpreted as leftest were pulled from shelves. Plans for movies that might be viewed as pro-communist were pulled from production or delayed. Teachers were warned about comments in the classroom that might be considered anti-American. Americans were encourage to report their friends and neighbors for comments that might indicate a communist leaning. This was an era when people were punished not necessarily for what they did but for their beliefs and opinions, a sad period for freedom in America. Thankfully, it only lasted a few years.

Bullshit!!!

Morons like the above have no problem bowing down to a liberal myth that sacrificed the truth for the benefit of leftwingers etc.etc. they need to apologize for all that and recognize Joe McCarthy for his heroism and try and understand the calamitous injustice that is currently being inflicted on America...........

I speak of...................The 'racism' hysteria which is currently afflicting America comes from the left of course...as a fanatic political mob sees racists behind every door. Their paranoia is not harmless, as they use the racist bogeyman to intimidate political adversaries – and sometimes erstwhile friends – while seeking to silence political dialogue.

This current insanity revealed its full absurdity via the ACLU’s Twitter stream, which had the temerity to post a picture of an adorable young toddler holding an American flag and a doll with the tag line “This is the future that ACLU members want.” Because the girl happens to be blonde and Caucasian, the ACLU was promptly attacked – the ACLU!

Immediately the politically correct rage mob commenced a digital protest led by credentialed injustice professionals such as Professor Nyasha Junior of Temple University who posted, “A white kid with a flag?!” Yes, Professor. In much of America outside of your faculty lounge, young American children waving Old Glory warms the heart and makes us smile rather than prompt thoughts of white supremacy lurking under the sheets.


Come again? This lovely young kid holding a flag equals “white supremacy”? Who even thinks of such things? Answer: the diversity hustlers. Shame on the ACLU, which apparently should have posted a picture of a gender-fluid dark-skinned child, holding a rainbow flag, perhaps with a COEXIST sticker on [gender-neutral pronoun] wheelchair.

Did the ACLU, a group once known for taking brave and unpopular stands, hold its ground or, better yet, simply ignore the online rabble? Sadly, no. The organization shortly responded with a Kermit the Frog image saying “That’s a very good point” and the post “When your followers keep you in check and remind you that white supremacy is everywhere.”


This is not merely social-media silliness it is insanity and a weapon used cynically and viciously -- little girls are apparently acceptable collateral damage -- by the left to isolate and demonize opponents, and particularly President Trump and his supporters. As msnbc's Donny Deustch said of Trump: “He is a racist -- can we just say it once and for all?” Such accusations are not rare. If I had a dollar for every time the mainstream media accused Trump and his voters of racism, I’d be about as rich as the recent Powerball winner.

I believe that people of color, for far too long, have been taken for granted by the Democratic Party. I also believe that the Trump movement represents real policy solutions for the woes of poverty and violence that burden too many Afro-American and Latino citizens. . Yes, today’s liberals are quick to use racism’s terms when it suits their purposes.

One of the main reasons America has succeeded as a country lies is our rejection of the tribalism that afflicts and paralyzes so much of the world. America is an idea, and one open to all who embrace it, regardless of skin color, heritage, or religion.


Instead of allowing a new scourge, this Racist Scare, to corrode our discourse, we must embrace our common American identity, rooted in our best traditions and elucidated in our founding documents. We should be difficult to offend and slow to accuse others of the disease of prejudice. As the incumbent president of the United States explained in his inaugural address seven months ago: “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for bigotry.”

I agree to disagree. There was a huge number of Communist infiltrating our country and in our government and McCarthy was right about that. But he overstepped, much like the cancel culture now. Named names and pointed fingers when it wasn't necessarily the case and alienated a hell of a lot of people in the process. Just like the liberal democrat social justice warriors have done lately.
