Skip to comments.Beck's McCarthy Awakening
Posted on 06/26/2010 7:46:40 AM PDT by jazminerose
Glenn Beck has beseeched us not to compare him to McCarthy. He accused Anthony Weiner of using Joe McCarthy tactics when Weiner launched his unsuccessful and short lived smear campaign against Becks sponsor, Goldline.
Beck, like too many commentators who ought to know better, has long spewed the entirely false narrative about Senator Joe McCarthy. Until his recent McCarthy Awakening.
Liberals have been embarrassing themselves for decades with this McCarthy business. Point out an unsavory association, and they squeal like stuck pigs about the scourge of McCarthyism. In the mind of the liberal, Senator McCarthy was a deranged conservative finding imaginary communists under every rock and creating the fiction of the Red Menace. Note: they have the same attitude today about radical Islam.

Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against Americas Enemies
M. Stanton Evans
None Dare Call It Treason
First off, let me state that I don’t have much knowledge of Sen. McCarthy. It seems to me, however, that he was right. The left coast is still infested with communists, and they infect their kids with it too, on purpose. They are zealots, and government is their religion.
Yeah, Glenn takes a while sometimes. Maybe he’ll come around on “commander zero’s” natural born status.
One only needs to skim the action items in the Communist Manifesto, and overlay it on our history for the last 50 years, to see that Joe McCarthy was right.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could finally correct the definition of “McCarthyism” to be “a patriotic concern for one’s country”?
A real hero, who by the way was telling the truth (according to former Soviet and FBI records), was made out as a bad guy, by those that oh by the way, were the bad guys.
History in the minds of the youth and contemporary Americans is created with junk like this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0433383/
If you read the entire article, McCarthy had no interest in left coast celbutards—that’s the lie you learned in tax payer funded indoctrination centers.
McCarthy’s only interest was in communist operatives in the goverment that had infiltrated after WWII. FDR himself knew about it—he once said he didn’t care some of his best friends were commies.
It was the House committee that questioned celebtards. McCarthy was a senator.
I have to admit I was ignorant too. The funny thing is I never fell for the lie that McCarthy was on a wild witch hunt blaming innocent people. My gut told me McCarthy was a good man being destroyed, now I'm learning the facts that back up what my gut was telling me. So I bought the book "Blacklisted by History", and I'll probably buy several more on the subject.
Actually, death is their religion. Government is merely the instrument of their celebration.
For reference, here’s a link to the PBS “NOVA” episode of “Secrets, Lies
and Atomic Spies”.
When I saw this PBS production that admitted McCarthy was right...
there were scads of Communist infiltrators in the US guvmint
(although PBS claimed McCarthy wasn’t always accurate in identifying
I about had a heart attack.
One only needs to read what came out after the fall of the Soviet Union about who was doing what in our government to know that McCarthy was right. Starting with Alger Hiss and working on down. And now they’ve apparently taken over the White House, when formerly they were just “advisors” and lower level functionaries.
PBS admittted it? Holy subversive!
McC was only right about 98%.
Isn’t that about the same as El Rushbo?
This is an excellent link. Thanks for posting!
“And now theyve apparently taken over the White House, when formerly they were just advisors and lower level functionaries.”
Spot on, Lydia. As well as the slow but certain take over of “mainstream” media and public education. And the suppression of individual freedom and responsibility and the promotion of group-think.
But there’s still no shortage of starry-eyed, would-be young communists who say “it just hasn’t been done right yet”.
Tell that to the millions who have died as a direct result of this great social experiment.
I didn’t have this information. As I try to remember my history classes, there was very little to no information on McCarthy. Seems like one of those things that is not taught.
I wonder what Senator Mccarthy would think of the current administration...
dont forget coulter’s excellent book ‘Treason’ for a ton of detail on this same subject.....
Yeah his guest was pretty good.
I thought Coulter would have been better however.
