Rachel Maddow has engaged in a strange--sinister?--irony.

On her MSNBC show last night, one moment Maddow was condemning the late Senator Joe McCarthy for encouraging people to "turn in their friends" in the entertainment industry. The next moment, Maddow was urging her viewers to . . . turn in someone in the entertainment industry--the animator of Mike Huckabee's history series for kids.

What is sad is that Maddow probably can’t see the irony of it.

So Maddow will harm the career of a fellow gay because he worked for a Republican? Vindictive and you don’t get into heaven that way

Did she really do this? Is she soooo dumb that she doesn’t know that Sen. McCarthy had NOTHING to do with the Hollywood “blacklist”?!

Maddow is a bad joke. However, I clicked over to view Huckabee’s LearnOurHistory.com to view the cartoon previews. The message may be good, but the animation is awful. Absolutely awful. Maddow wanting to out the animator may be providing a public service. Huckabee ought to consider pulling the series for a complete re-animation using the same script. It’s really that bad.

She probably has multiple personality syndrome and one of her doesn't know what the other one of her/him is doing./s

Seriously though, people on the extreme far left have some serious mental issues.

Do you mean the drawing is bad? I didn’t think so, just looked like kids cartoons to me.

McCarthy was right.

Just look around. He was right about everything.

The “Venona Project” vindicated McCarthy as I pointed out to my daughters thimble brained, UVA graduate 7th grade history teacher. Had it out with that little commie last year.

A better example to compare maddow’s comments on investigating Huckabee’s historians to would be Mattthews’ Powell's and Democrats outrage in 2008 about Bachmann’s direct answer to Mathews prompts that the media should investigate members of congress to see what their views are relative to being for or against America, calling that McCartheyism.

Maddows complaint is the Huck history is too pro-America and needs to be investigated , versus Bachmann calling on the media to investigate members of congress for being anti-America, One is good the other is McCarthyism.

These days, the same people that condemn “McCarthyism” have no problem with punishing people for opposing the gay rights agenda.

Maddow probably imagines she is merely sexually confused. Actually she is simply confused ~ about everything.

Someday she will challenge a bus.

“Verona” vindicated McCarthy. “Venona” was US-USSR communications during WW II.

Sodomites will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. So, vindictiveness is the least of her problems.

The lefty ignorati have never cared much for facts, and are therefore totally unaware of any distinction between the HUAC and McCarthy’s separate hearings in the Senate.

For those interested in the real story about Joe McCarthy, read M.Stanton Evan’s “Blacklisted by History.” Not only was McCarthy not the evil ogre the left has been successful in characterizing him as for fifty years, McCarthy managed to get hundreds of communists thrown out of federal government and make governing bodies institute measures that made it much tougher for them to infiltrate our governing bodies. In short, the country needed McCarthy. And Rachel Madcow needs to take some history lesssons. McCarthy was a senator and had nothing to do with the HOUSE!!! on Unamerican Activities Commission. Madcow is a dunderhead.

For a comic book format, the drawing is appropriate. However, Huck’s series is animated and the animation is so bad I can’t bring myself to complete the previews.
