We have to wipe the word “McCarthyism” from our vocabulary because the reason that Joseph McCarthy has been vilified for more than fifty years is that he came too close to the truth and he would not let the story go.
Consider how Castro and Chavez are talked about like they are rock stars when they are nothing but butchers and thugs. Did Joseph McCarthy ever kill anyone? The left has given all sorts of Communist butchers a pass but they treat Joseph McCarthy like he was the worst human being that ever lived. They hate him so much because he was a threat to them.
McCarthy had access to the Venona Papers, but couldn't let on lest the Soviets find out. Thus, everyone he hounded was a bonafide Soviet mole.
The Administration is chock full of Communists planning to destroy us.
