Skip to comments.McCarthyism: The Rosetta Stone Of Liberal Lies (Ann Coulter Upsets Liberals Again Alert)
Posted on 11/07/2007 3:22:31 PM PST by goldstategop
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:
-- That he lied about his war service: He was a tailgunner in World War II; -- That he was a drunk: He would generally nurse a single drink all night; -- That he made the whole thing up: He produced loads of Soviet spies in government jobs; -- That he just did it for political gain: He understood perfectly the godless evil of Communism.
Ironically, for all of their love of conspiracy theories -- the rigging of the 2000 election, vote suppression in Ohio in 2004, 9/11 being an inside job, oil companies covering up miracle technology that would allow cars to run on dirt, Britney Spears' career, etc., etc. -- when presented with an actual conspiracy of Soviet spies infiltrating the U.S. government, they laughed it off like world-weary skeptics and dedicated themselves to slandering Joe McCarthy.
Then as now, liberals protect themselves from detection with wild calumnies against anybody who opposes them. They have no interest in -- or aptitude for -- persuasion. Their goal is to anathematize their enemies. "Blacklisted by History" removes the curse from one of the greatest patriots in American history.

Does anybody else wonder why we still support the UN?
It tries to undermine the Constitution of the USA and would love to cripple our Constitutional Republic.
In over 60 years No major politician has ever tried to get the USA out of the UN.
16 out of 17 of the AMERICANS that were involved in creating the U . N. were later identified, in sworn testimony, as secret communist agents.
The first Secretary General was the AMERICAN Alger Hiss. Alger Hiss served time in prison pursuant to his involvement in a Communist spy ring.
Many of the other AMERICANS that were involved in creating the U . N. fled the country, to avoid prosecution.
The ONE AMERICAN, that was involved in creating the U . N. ; and was NOT later identified, in sworn testimony, as a secret communist agent, was Dean Acheson. Dean Achesons law firm was the legal representative of the Soviet Union, in U. S. courts.
If the AMERICANS that were involved in creating the U . N. were Communists, what do you think we got from the rest of the world?
I would also like to add that the left refused to own up to the fact that literally hundreds of Chinese agents and spies were connected to the Clintons through financial transactions and appointment by butthead himself.
I believe it was Huang that was getting to level CIA briefings and transmitting that information to China moments later.
This is going to be a very good book to read. It did want to note that nothing has changed. The left is still enabling those that would dismantle our nation, as if anyone who actually cared couldn’t find evidence of it within minutes.
Uh oh, now Annie's ticked off a bunch of Freepers.
I’m buyin’ this book.
bookmark for later
Didn't McCarthy die from cirrhosis or another complication of alcoholism?
Oh, but wasn't the case against McCarthy proven by Arthur Miller in The Cricible? Or on "M*A*S*H"? Or in The Majestic (an otherwise good movie). Hollywood's favorite theme for the last forty years has been its persecution by "McCarthy" or "McCarthyites".
Barf. Most of what we learned in history classes in school is worthless or worse.
Here come the FReepers who will complain that Coulter has “gone too far” in attacking Dean Acheson.
What did McCarthy have to do with Truman being picked as vice-president?
Actually he was an intelligence officer for a Marine Corps airwing.
Possibly nothing, but Henry Wallace was practically a card carrying communist.
Oh...........wait............they mean in the fuel tank. Nevermind.
I was a little confused with Ann today on Fox when she slammed the baby boomers big time and she’s a boomer herself.
I remember my senior year high school teacher standing up for McCarthy back in 53
He caught a lot of flack
He was right
Good thing there are some conservatives with gonads even if they are female
Hurray for Ann
Swaggering, vain, self-promoting he was. But in the end, he was also right.
I've got cars that run on dirt, gravel, cement, or asphalt. But mostly, in this city, they run on potholes.
Over 100 Asians fled our nation rather than appear before Congress to answer questions regarding illegal campaign donations to the Clintons and the DNC.
One $200,000 dollar donation to the DNC was from the head of China’s space program. This Military Director was the daughter of the General in charge at Tieniman Square.
There was a lot of money floating around. Clinton also had Chinese operatives working for him. One was appointed to the White House and given top level clearance and regular CIA updates. When he was transfered out of the White House those top level CIA briefings continued. And it is documented that he would walk across the street after them making phone calls to Asia and faxing documents to the same region.
Clinton is probably about the closest thing to a Manchurian Candidate this nation could ever, and has ever had.
