On Un-American Activities

As the world continues to fade to grainy black and white, Barry and his Democrats are bringing back a blast from the past, Blacklisting. In his zeal to root out communist ideology in America, Joe McCarthy used the force of government to ruin the lives of communist dupes in Hollywood and elsewhere. Finally, cooler heads prevailed and the witch hunts came to an end. Now the jackboot is on the other foot. The difference today is that there don't seem to be any cooler heads to put the brakes on this bunch who want to root out traditional American ideology. –Dale

“Joe McCarthy used the force of government to ruin the lives of communist dupes in Hollywood and elsewhere. Finally, cooler heads prevailed and the witch hunts came to an end.”
This statement is totally untrue and shows the author is ignorant of the history of the era.

Joe McCarthy was a member of and later Chairman of the Senate Committee on Investigations. In his role he investigated Communist infiltration of the government. Communist infiltration of the government was widespread at the time. There were many Communist spy rings within the government working for the Soviet Union. Alger Hiss was just one example. The people Senator McCarthy investigated were later proved to have been Communists or Communist sympathizers. He often backed off investigations when asked. Senator McCarthy had information about the Communist activities of Robert Oppenheimer but did not make them public at the request of President Eisenhower. McCarthy was extremely popular in his day among the American people. The media however continually attacked him.

Those Communists mounted a campaign against Senator McCarthy. They used his homosexual staffer Roy Cohn’s attempt to get special treatment for his gay lover David Schine from the Army as a reason to stage what became known as the Army McCarthy hearings. McCarthy was then attacked on TV and by others in government. He was censored by the Senate. The Democrats regained the Senate in 1954 and McCarthy was reduced to a minority member with no influence.

The term McCarthyism was invented by a communist agent within the Truman Administration. It was used to falsely claim McCarthy was untruthful.

Bottom Line:

Senator McCarthy never had anything to do with Hollywood. His entire investigation was focused on and limited to people in government service who were communists. And later records once the Soviet Union imploded showed both that he was right on there being a lot of communists in the government, and that they were actively and knowingly working against the interests of the United States.

In fact, his investigations were the polar opposite of Obama's 'witch hunt.' Obama wants to destroy people who are *not* in government. To Obama, government is sacred, second only to himself in importance.

Exactly what witch hunt are you referring to? You mean all those innocent folks revealed in the Venona Tapes? Those poor folks forced into working second jobs to get a paycheck from the GRU?

Why who could object to that? Or those that assisted them like the Rosenbergs.
