Likud MK Akunis: Every word Senator Joseph McCarthy said was right
Haaretz ^ | 12/04/2011 | Jonathan Lis

Posted on 12/04/2011 6:01:56 PM PST by goldstategop

Likud MK Ofir Akunis, who sponsored the bill to limit foreign funding to Israeli human rights organization, stood behind Senator Joseph's McCarthy's actions in the 1950s. Speaking on Sunday on the "London and Kirshenbaum" television show on Channel 10, Akunis said McCarthy – who in the 1950s presided over a committee that investigated Americans suspected of harboring Communist views – said "was right in every word, the fact is - there were Soviet agents."

Finally an Israeli MK who knows the truth about what Joe McCarthy did -= there were Soviet agents and known Communists bent on subverting America. Let's not be politically incorrect. He did a great service for America even if his tactics were somewhat extreme.

Hell, many of Roosevelt’s top advisors were Soviet agents.

Bravo for Israel. This explains why members of the administration have just been thrashing about at Israel for the last few days. Ignore the “McCarthy” remarks. The legislation is against hostile foreign powers (namely the US Democrat party and the European leftist parties), sending huge amounts of money in support of leftist agitators in Israel.

The US Democrat party has been actively trying to undermine the Israeli government, so it will be replaced by their leftist Labour party. Their recent mass demonstrations were orchestrated by Democrat political strategist Stanley Greenberg, of (James) Carville, Greenberg, and (Bob) Shrum.

And they’ve been joined at this with the European leftists, who are also trying to force Israel to permit a hostile Palestinian state, and basically to totally surrender to the Muslims.

McCarthy was windbag, a drunk, and a horse’s can; that aside, the State department was indeed lousy with reds.

None of that has anything to do with what McCarthy said.

The list of faults we can list on every elected official is endless...

Every word Senator Joseph McCarthy said was right

The sad part is that Senator McCarthy barely scratched the surface. First of all, these traitors weren't spies in the traditional sense, infiltrators passing information to the enemy. These were men at the highest level of the US government making policy. And they weren't Soviet agents working for Uncle Joe Stalin. They were working for the same Globalist Bankster cartels that the communists were working for.

Yes, the communists were and have always been the hired thugs of Wall Street and the City of London, used to consolidate power and wealth into a centralized authoritarian government to further their agenda for a one world government.

Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution

The Best Enemy Money Can Buy

Senator McCarthy was useful for stirring up the Red Scare hysteria and whipping up support for the old "giving up liberty for the illusion of security" game but when he got too close the truth the Banksters had their Corporate Media smear him and their bought-n-paid-for meatpuppets in the Senate censure him. I'm sure if that ploy didn't work they would have blown his head off like they did to his good friend John F. Kennedy.

Hi Ronin, in your opinion, what was the truth he got too close to? I know the government was stuffed with commies (still is, many of them children of those old commies), but I don’t think that’s what your alluding to.

McCarthy was windbag, a drunk, and a horse’s can;

And you know this from personal experience? All of these charges were the knee jerk reaction of liberal democrats in government and the media. Senator McCarthy was the victim of a smear campaign that would make the last couple weeks of Herman Cain's life look like a meeting of the literary society.

Have you ever read anything written by the late Senator? I would recommend "America's Retreat From Victory".

I seem to remember it being the German high command that funded and armed the Bolsheviks and brought them to Russia. Lenin had to make up a farcical about the train being sealed as it went through Germany.

” “I didn’t say McCarthyism was right, or that every word that McCarthy said was right.” He added that he does not support McCarthyism or political persecution of citizens suspected of being disloyal to the state. “God forbid, absolutely not,” he said.”

That said, and agreed with, McCarthy fingered the Soviet Agents comfortably ensconsed near the top of our government, at which time the establishment, including the President, turned on McCarthy and devoured him.

No, I read a lot, across the spectrum. Give it a try.

So do I but you didn't answer my question.

Have you ever read anything written by the late Senator? I would recommend "America's Retreat From Victory".

An open mind does not automatically make one a critical thinker and reading across the spectrum does not necessarily make one well informed. If you wish to learn about someone, read what he has to say not what critics say about him.

If you read what the media and rat politicians said about "tail gunner Joe" and ignored his writings he would appear to be "a windbag, a drunk, and a horse’s can;" as you say. It's somewhat similar to the present day hatchet job on Herman Cain, ugly, pernicious, nonstop vituperation. However McCarthy's writings reveal him to be patriot who saw the subversion of his country well underway with few paying any attention to the thinly veiled assault.

Regards,
GtG

Oh, hush.

I see, 4buttons gets to publish unsupported opinion as fact and I have to "hush" when I ask questions. You still haven't responded to my only question. Have you ever read anything that Senator McCarthy wrote? Simple enough, just yes or no.
