MCCARTHYISM: THE ROSETTA STONE OF LIBERAL LIESContinued at www.AnnCoulter.com
November 7, 2007
When I wrote a ferocious defense of Sen. Joe McCarthy in "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism," liberals chose not to argue with me. Instead they posted a scrolling series of reasons not to read my book, such as that I wear short skirts, date boys, and that "Treason" was not a scholarly tome.
After printing rabidly venomous accounts of McCarthy for half a century based on zero research, liberals would only accept research presenting an alternative view of McCarthy that included, as the Los Angeles Times put it, at least the "pretense of scholarly throat-clearing and objectivity."
This week, they got it. The great M. Stanton Evans has finally released "Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies." Based on a lifetime's work, including nearly a decade of thoroughgoing research, stores of original research and never-before-seen government files, this 672-page book ends the argument on Joe McCarthy. Look for it hidden behind stacks of Bill Clinton's latest self-serving book at a bookstore near you.
Evans' book is such a tour de force that liberals are already preparing a "yesterday's news" defense -- as if they had long ago admitted the truth about McCarthy. Yes, and they fought shoulder to shoulder with Ronald Reagan to bring down the Evil Empire. Thus, Publishers Weekly preposterously claims that "the history Evans relates is already largely known, if not fully accepted." Somebody better tell George Clooney.
The McCarthy period is the Rosetta stone of all liberal lies. It is the textbook on how they rewrite history -- the sound chamber of liberal denunciations, their phony victimhood as they demean and oppress their enemies, their false imputation of dishonesty to their opponents, their legalization of every policy dispute, their ability to engage in lock-step shouting campaigns, and the black motives concealed by their endless cacophony.
The true story of Joe McCarthy, told in meticulous, irrefutable detail in "Blacklisted by History," is that from 1938 to 1946, the Democratic Party acquiesced in a monstrous conspiracy being run through the State Department, the military establishment, and even the White House to advance the Soviet cause within the U.S. government.
In the face of the Democrats' absolute refusal to admit to their fecklessness, fatuity and recklessness in allowing known Soviet spies to penetrate the deepest levels of government, McCarthy demanded an accounting.
Even if one concedes to on-the-one-hand-on-the-other-hand whiners like Ronald Radosh that Truman's Secretary of State Dean Acheson didn't like communism, his record is what it was. And that record was to treat Soviet spies like members of the Hasty Pudding Club.
Rather than own up to their moral blindness to Soviet espionage, Democrats fired up the liberal slander machine, which would be deployed again and again over the next half century to the present day. In hiding their own perfidy, liberals were guilty of every sin they lyingly imputed to McCarthy. There were no "McCarthyites" until liberals came along.
"Blacklisted by History" proves that every conventional belief about McCarthy is wrong, including:

A good book, and a good write-up.
Pity no one will ever read them.
Whatever one may think of Ann, you simply cannot fault her for not saying what she thinks and, as she usually does, she hits the nail squarely on it’s head here!
Kick their red commie @$$3$ ANN!!!!!
“oil companies covering up miracle technology that would allow cars to run on dirt”
LOL, I love that gal
No, what we have are gorons, slick hillies and dingy harrys.
Worse than anything McCarthy could have possibly dreamed of.

Like Clinton even wrote his book...LOL
The Venona intercepts proved beyond doubt that the Roosevelt and Truman administrations had been thoroughly penetrated by communist spies.
Howzit wit yU?
Don't worry! I'll find my copy no matter WHERE they hid it!
(actually, some people would probably like that LOL)
Please add me!!
Somebody need to tell Ann that the ads are truly annoying.
I won’t be clicking on her site anymore. I’ll get her articles after they show up here for now I suppose.
But I still adore her.
Oh wait, let me get it.
Yea a couple of books ago, I went into one of the chain book stores to buy her best seller and they found "one" copy in the back room.
When Hilliary's book came out, I went to one of the beasts book signings in Marin County and put Coulter's book (which had just come out too with a Hairy Pooter one) on a table with all of Hilliary's propaganda on it!
Didn't last long, the security ( a DykE bigger than me) took it down.
I like the short skirts. Mucho. So there, libs.

When that thing first happened the whole website disappeared and an ad filled the whole page, I thought she got hacked!
I quickly closed the window and opened it again and then pushed “go” at my address bar and her site appeared.
I hope she is making big bucks on the ad, I wanted to see her site so didn’t bother reading it.
Love those hair flips...
Great picture, I was looking for that one!
Got sidetracked, see my last post...LOL
Ann Coulter after I told her a joke...
We should suggest the USPS design a Joe McCarthy stamp.
Then watch the libs heads explode all over the country.
Just remember, in 1983, Ted Kennedy was actively communicating with our enemy, the USSR on ways to stymie the President, Ronald Reagan, as RR was putting the Peacekeeper missiles in Europe under trememndous opposition. The next year, Carter tried to work with the Soviets to undermine RR’s re-election.
These two should have had a blindfold and a final cigarette long ago. Yet today, they are revered as statesmen.
Rush, would you breed this Broad so we can have another Reagan??? Ann Rox!!
Pray for W and Our Victorious Troops
Been meaning to watch that.....
Poofters and insecure women...
gosh, does it get any prettier than that?

When I wrote a ferocious defense of Sen. Joe McCarthy in "Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism..." - Ann CoulterThat would be THIS book:
I read the column and I will buy the book. I hope you will, too.
Waves of immigrants who came to the USA from 1880-1920: the poles the italians the irish the jews. Most of them voted for FDR by large majorities in 1932, 1936 & 1940. Today only the jews still vote democratic by hefty majorities. Why? The reason for this dates explicitly to the McCarthy period from 1950-54. The reason this is so is because Hollywood still strenuously maintains the communist lie about that era. This lie is maintained by movies in the last years called A Beautiful Mind, and Good Night and Good Luck.
There are various reasons given as to why Stalin initiated the Doctors Plot in the early 1950s before he died. The KGB hated Israel. Many Americans who were enthusiastic supporters of the UN were Jewish.
Edvard Radzinsky in his book Stalin argues that while at one time Stalin hoped Jewish financial capital would help rebuild the Soviet Union after the WWII, Stalin hated the prospect of suborning himself to the Baruch Plan and he flat out rejected IAEA nuclear controlspresented in 1946. The Russians were working on their own abomb based on stolen US designs. (Stalins attitude is not entirely dissimliar to that of Iran today.) The Russian Communist party was so top heavy with Jews-Stalin himself a Geogianwanted to insure that the Russians saw a Russian face to the the communist party.
Whatever the reason, Stalin fomented the Doctors plot hysteria and broke off diplomatic relations with Israel. He was within days of preparing to exile the Soviet Jews to the Gulag (as was done previously with various other ethnic minorities such as the Crimean Tatars, Chechens, etc.), and initiate another great purge along the lines of 1938.
The important thing to recall is that the Doctors Plot happened at the same time as the McCarthy anti communist business from 1950-54
Stalin already had the concentration camps set up. And some of the preliminary accusations had gone out for the Doctors Plot.100 or so Russian jews had already been executed when he died in 1953.
At the same time the Rosenburgs were tried and executed for treason in the USA in 1953and this less than a decade after the Holocaust. This naturally caused fear and suspicion in the US Jewish community. This fear and suspicion was played upon by knowledgeable communists and leftistslarge numbers of whom were jewish. These folk not only knew about what Stalin had done in the 1930s and was about to do with the doctors plotbefore he died but also saw the McCarthy trials as show trials american style ... that is, a prelude to an american pogrom. For which the rosenbergs were exhibit A.
What Stalin had planned to do in a brilliant piece of jujitsu leftists and communists imputed to Americans on the right. But it was done soto voce. Basically a blood libel was perpetrated on Americans without their knowing it. Worse, protestant america were painted as tribal enemies tooth and claw of the US jewish establishment without protestant america even knowing it. Never again! Was the battle cry. But there werent any such enemies of Jews in the USA. If there were protestant tribal enemies in the USA Meyer Kahane would have provoked them into a bloodletting. Why? Because he heard the same thing as everyone else. He also heard about enemies of the jews in the heartland. When he went to give battle, the only sorts of fights the JDL could find resulted in unintelligible court disputes in places like Idaho. In the end, Kahane married an american woman & helped expedite Stalins last wishto rid Russia of Jews. When the american woman committed suicide Kahane lost interest in the USA and focused instead on Israel. When Kahane died it was at the hands of a Moslem in 1990.
While the American public outside NY/LA were generally given the view that the McCarthy era was an age when innocent men were unjustly tried by suspicious anti semites like McCarthy & Nixonthe NY/LA Jewish establishment was given a very different story. They were given to understand that the democrats/liberals had prevented the US from visiting a holocaust on them. And that therefor American Jews owed their loyalty to the liberal democrats because the liberal democrats were the protectors of the Jews.
And this Meme went on untouched for decades after McCarthy.
This dual track story line didnt crack until the early 1990s when the kgb/nkvd/gru opened up their files on the WWII-McCarthy Period. In 1995 the USs NSA agency opened up their Venona files. Both Russian and American spy agency files showed that McCarthy was right. The US government as well as the Manhattan Projecthad been at one time soaked with Russian Spies. The Rosenburgs were guilty. While McCarthy was wrong in most the details he got the general outline of the story right. Why did McCarthy get the outline right and the details wrong? The reason is McCarthys relationship to Hoover was the same as Hoovers relationship to the NSA.The NSA told the FBI about the Venona intercepts but insisted that the FBI could not use NSA intercepts as evidence in court. The FBI had to develop their own leads. As a result most of the spies escaped prosecution. The FBI did not get their man.
In 1950 J Edgar Hoover began weekly meetings with Joseph McCarthy. Those meetings ended in 1954. The beginning and end of those meetings coincided with the beginning and end of McCarthy star turn in the national spot light. McCarthy got most of the details of the spy story wrong but he got the general outline of the story right. His predicament was the same as that of the FBI. Whatever Hoover told himMcCarthy could not use in the senate hearings. To this day the FBI denies that Hoover told McCarthy anything about the Venona Cables and maybe Hoover said nothing explicit to McCarthy for which Hoover could be liable in court.
Needless to say, an American style shoah was never in the cards.
The reason that hollywood hated Ronald Reagan so much was that he was an anti communist in hollywood during the McCarthy period. During this period to be staunchly anti communist in Hollywood or NYC was to be at least vaguely anti semitic because in the 30s to the 50s communism was considered to be almost a secular form of Judaism in the Jewish communities of NY/LA. Why? In Russia, communism was a way to get ahead for the jews. As well, there was a biblical antecedent for jewish communists in the bible in the person of Joseph in Egypt. Why? Because the relationship between jews to josephs Egypt maps over well to jews in Russia. And the history of the jews from Joseph to Moses looks very similar to the rise to prominence of many jews in the soviet communist bureaucracy from the 1917-1970 and the decades long expulsion of Russias jews after 1970 when it became clear that communism was not working. The Russians blamed Russian jews for the failure of communism.
Reagan was among the first wave of FDR democrats to switch parties. Reagans star turn in Hollywood ended after McCarthy. However, his experiences in Hollywood served him well when he went into public service. He always understood the jujitsu of media talk of the age. Something that cannot be said of Nixon.
When I hear American based Moslems talking about McCarthyism being visited on them. I have to laugh. They dont know that they have pronounced themselves guilty in the eyes of many Americans.
The history of the McCarthy period now is forgotten among american jews except for the vague idea that somehow republicans are bad and somehow democrats are good.
As for the democrats, part of the reason for the loss of their inner coherence in the last decade has been that part their foundational raison dÃªtre stemming from the McCarthy era was revealed to be based on a lie. So now the core of the democratic party is the sodomites. Those folks are not just confusing. They are confused.
David Horowitz interviewed by Rush Limbaugh a couple months ago talked about how his parents were communists and he was a communist in college. He said when he was in college his views were always treated respectfully by his professors. But he said recently a young christian college student told him that his homosexual college professor had singled him out in class and asked him Why do you christians hate queers. Asked why he continued to do what he did in the face of all the abuse he gets, David Horowitz said like Rush he took public political positions because he had to. But also he said he did it as a matter of atonement.
He gets it.
Venona Historical Writings that include comparisons of venona and russian spy lists and the changing venona story in the academy.
I love it when Professor Annie holds class like this...telling so much truth that the rug is literally jerked out from under the libs. After Ann takes a jackhammer to their bedrock fictions their eyes spin in their empty heads; soon they begin to rant mindlessly and drool profusely bwhahahahaha. They then call her research a pack of outlandish lies.
This time ...a respected scholar wrote a meticulously researched tome proving her right in every respect...
Check the obits in the morning papers boys because there are gonna be a lot of libs cashin in their chips over this one......bwhahahaha sayonara folks.....
Before there was Joe McCarthy, there was Martin Dies Jr, Congressman from Texas, who headed ut the House Committee of Unamerican Affairs. Dies started out as a very liberal Democrat representing the Texas delegation as an “at-large” Representative (this was in the days before “one man, one vote”). By 1938, he was so appalled at the excesses of the New Deal, and the total infiltration of the US government by Reds and Soviet activists, that he swung around and was opposing FDR on practically every front. During this same period, the once Republican faction called the “Progressives” were becoming even more Communist than Stalin, and since there was no Democrat party at all in Wisconsin during those lean years, the Progressives in Wisconsin took on the role of opposition to the real Republicans. Joe McCarthy, like so many idealistic youth, took up with the Progressives as a young man.
Being on the battle front changed young Joe, and he returned to Wisconsin a fiery and angry man, having shifted away from the Progressive view to the more righteous Republican position on Communism and what it had already done to America. Concurrently, the Progressive party had collapsed completely in Wisconsin, and the foundations of the renewed Democratican party were formed, drawing their cadre from the Progressive ranks.
A little-known fact (or at least one little known by most liberals) is that Joe McCarthy and Joe Kennedy’s boys, John and Bobby, were close personal friends in those early years in the Senate, and Bobby was one of the fleet young fellows who ferreted out the facts of the infiltration of Red influence at every level of the State Department and Department of Defense. Which makes the defection of Ted Kennedy even more curious. Surely he was aware of what his brothers were doing, aiding and abetting the anti-Communist activities of Joe McCarthy. Does Ted so despise the heroic achievements of his brothers in their younger years?
Ted's a doddering drunk and does what his staffers tell him to do. Ditto for seventy percent of the Seante....
Thanks for the great links as well!
ya gotta rub it in dontcha!?!
Ted may have at one time been just like his brothers..
..couldn't keep his pecker in his pants but basically a traditional liberal (before liberals became rabid).
Since then he has morphed into the evil thing that he is. His brothers must be rolling in their graves.
“These two should have had a blindfold and a final cigarette long ago. Yet today, they are revered as statesmen.”
But only by fellow travelers.
Who knows some day she may jump on the back of your Harley and ride out to that stream with you...
ok...that mental picture made my day!
p.s. Hey Ann, darling...you hear that?
Now you must understand that all "Big Brother" political movements rewrite history to suit themselves, rather than face history squarely. Why? Because their respective ideologies cannot COPE with the real world, but the alternatively create a faux Utopia. Hillery has her Utopia, O'bammer (Kennedy's spelling) has his, and they all whip the masses into a frenzy telling them all what is WRONG, and how they promise to SOLVE it, and bring about a heaven on earth if you vote for ME!
The Republican party is trying that approach now with its movement left towards so called , " progressive conservative" candidates.
Don't fall for it Republicans, go Duncan Hunter for 2008.
DO NOT BECOME A REVISIONIST OF HISTORY!
Anne is more than right, she is trying to WAKE people up.
And she is doing a good job.
The Dems thought the Nazi's were just wonderful people, seeking self determnation for their down trodden peoples in 1936. Joseph Kennedy , then ambassador to Britain, a democrat, and Charles Lindberg , a democrat, thought the Nazis were just great. Most dems did then. But the Dem liking of the Nazis dissappeared when the shite hit the fan in 1939. (Gas ovens tend to make you quail even if you are a liberal but maybe not today's liberals, who are more crazed than they were in 1939.) Then after the war the Dems showed up again to flex their commie traitorous ways against McCarthy, after almost a generation of "supporting" WWII and Korea.
Likewise today, the Utopia of liberal politicians cannot countenance an accurate view on the World Fascist Caliphate Movement, which started in Mecca in Nov. of 1979, when Wahabbi gunmen attacked the holy mosque and the holy of holies of Islam, and captured it. (They were finally gased with poison, and others beheaded.) No, no, todays revisionist liberal historians wont connect the dots from then up to 9/11.
Likewise the Republican Party supports so called , progressive conservatives, who also are historical revisionists seeking to compete with the Dems in selling the masses a progressibve conservative Utopia. Only one candidate in both the Dem and Republican fields is NOT, and his name? Duncan Hunter.
Support him, and get things done in the REAL world:
Thanks Anne for your 100% right on article.
