McCarthy vindication ping!
FDR was a tool. Why he is admired by otherwise sensible people is beyond my limited grasp.
Tail Gun Joe was right all along.
It is also a fact that for roughly a century, communists concentrated considerable effort into subverting the American black community, and we are now reaping the bitter harvest. Strip away all the ethnic peculiarities of the afro-american culture, and it’s pure unaldulterated communist/socialist doctrine.
What’s sad is that if you say anything bad about “The Good War” you get smeared. I hope I’m wrong, but I bet she won’t be invited on Fox News or any talk radio.
It’s always been a mystery why Dresden was firebombed when it was choked with refugees from the East. I’ve heard that it was to keep Stalin happy and I believe it.
I cannot remember where I read FDR was very close to unknowingly naming a Soviet agent (spy) as his Sec State; might have been “The Shield and the Sword” by Vasili Mitrokhin (former KGB officer). At any rate, the ‘30s and ‘40s US/UK governments were likely thoroughly penetrated by the Soviets; from the Cambridge Five to the Rosenbergs. Maybe even the early CIA; read “A Wilderness of Mirrors” by David C. martin. This ebbed with the advent of the ‘50s cold war and yet took off again with the tumult of the ‘60s and continues to this day.

The real scandal is that assault continues unabated, and I believe it’s even accelerating today.
Someone please inform Ms. Thomas that it actually started in 1917.
Of course, but even WI turned against McCarthy. He would have been soundly defeated by Proxmire in 1958 had he lived. And Badgers actually though Proxmire was a fiscal hawk.
When Roosevelt's underlings rescued the principals of the the Frankfurt School from Germany, placing many of them in American universities, the President should have been impeached.
Whittaker Chambers has been vindicated.
His book Witness (1952) is a must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about Soviet penetration of DC in the 1930s and who Alger Hiss really was.
fdr called stalin “uncle joe”.Says all I need to know.
FDR was certainly under the influence of Stalin’s agents both in how he conducted World War II and how the peace terms were settled. For instance, Churchill wanted to invade Europe directly from North Africa instead of coming through Normandy, which was Stalin’s preference because it gave him more opportunity to gain ground in Eastern Europe. However it’s a bit much for the author to conclude that we didn’t win the war. Stalin did not get everything his own way—despite FDR’s lapses, there were other forces at work in determining U.S. actions. For instance, Stalin’s agents wanted to de-industrialize Germany as part of the peace terms; they did not get that, largely due to resistance from representatives of Wall Street who also had some say in U.S. policy. W. Averell Harriman reported that during his last month of life FDR finally realized Stalin had been using him and was angry about it. By the time Truman came in, the pro-Soviet faction of the State Department represented by people like Alger Hiss was facing growing resistance from others wary of the Soviet threat. Truman had little patience with the Soviet diplomat when they tried to lie to him the way they’d been doing to FDR and basically told him off. When Truman dropped the bomb on Japan, it was not part of the Soviet game plan, and Stalin had to accelerate his timetable in Asia rapidly. We did win the war, but we would have won more quickly and won the peace terms more decisively if FDR had been more vigilant against Stalin’s influence.
FDR had a top tax rate of 94% and proposed a 100% top rate. Looking at that its obvious Communists influenced his regime.
