In a recent column of mine, I commented, "Joe McCarthy wasn't wrong, just early." I was being flippant. I was trying to make light of the Democratic Party's turn toward radical, extreme, Marxist, anti-American rhetoric.
I had no idea how right I really was.
I'm not being flippant anymore. Joe McCarthy would've had a field day with today's Democratic politicians. He'd be a hero for defending America from evil, radical Marxist politicians posing as "Democrats." We'd be giving him ticker-tape parades.
The House Un-American Activities Committee served as a model for McCarthy in the Senate. Let me ask you bluntly: How much more un-American can you get than the ideas espoused by Democrats in the past few days?
First, I'll start with the usual suspect, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. I know radical Marxist Democrats want to rewrite history, but Omar's latest claim is ridiculous. She retweeted the claim that Jesus Christ was a Palestinian. Folks, Jesus was a Jew, born into a Jewish family. It doesn't get simpler or more factual than that. Jesus' parents, Mary and Joseph, were Jewish. I know this breaks Democrat Omar's heart, but Jesus wasn't a Muslim. He's the founder of Christianity, not ISIS, Hamas or Hezbollah.
But this is par for the course for Omar. In 2017, she wrote a Twitter post framing American soldiers as the bad guys in the Black Hawk Down incident in Somalia, during which 19 American soldiers died. She clearly hates Jews, Israel, America and U.S. soldiers. Never forget that Nancy Pelosi put Omar on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. How un-American can you get?
Days ago, on Easter morning, Islamic terrorists targeted Christians at churches in Sri Lanka. More than 300 people died. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton tweeted their condolences, but they refused to use the word "Christians" to describe the victims. And neither would use the word "Islamic" to describe the murderers. How un-American can you get?
The Democrat-dominated New York Legislature just passed a law that gives free college tuition to illegals. Days later, the Legislature killed a proposal for tuition assistance for Gold Star families -- the children of U.S. military vets killed while fighting for our freedoms. How un-American can you get?
But I've saved the best for last: Bernie Sanders announced his new plan for allowing murderers and rapists to vote from prison. Democrats are no longer satisfied with ex-felons voting. Now, they want felons to vote while still behind bars. The worst of the worst are qualified to vote, according to Bernie. Mass murderers, rapists, pedophiles, even terrorists. According to Bernie, they all have a God-given right to vote.
According to Bernie's plan, Hitler, Stalin and all of history's worst mass murderers could vote from their prison cells if they were alive today. According to Bernie, the Boston bomber should vote. If they were alive, Bernie would allow Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Boston Strangler to vote.
How low can you go? How un-American can you get? Democrats are certainly testing the waters for 2020.
Like I said, McCarthy wasn't wrong, just early.
McCarthy wanted to pull up the weeds while there were only one or two in the garden. Instead, they were allowed to flourish, and today’s Democrat party is the result.
He was right the whole time... It’s when the MSM commenced as the cornerstone of all ‘fake’ news, from that point to the present.
Actually he was late. The media had already been infected by the commies and controlled the narrative.
McCarthy was right!......he was prescient in knowing the direction we were going
Now our valiant President has to pull up all the chaff allowed to grow these many years in our government
......of course someday God will pull ALL the chaff
My tag line for the last five years.
The infection has spread to the entire body.
McCarthy was vindicated by Soviet archives, the Venona Papers, by M. Stanton Evans.
Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies
I was surprised that the Commies stopped him cold with just one question, when all the evidence was on is side. The beginning of ‘emotion politics’ the Dems have been pulling ever since.
Joe McCarthy wasn’t early.
After the Soviet collapse the Soviet Venona files proved every Government worker he went after actually was a Soviet operative.
House Committee on Un-American Activities.
The Communist Left has tried to insinuate that the House’s activities were un-American.
Sen. McCarthy illustrates the effectiveness of the Deep State smear machine. Some bimbo at a Virginia university teaches that Sen. McCarthy ran the House committee. This was repeated by Bill OReilly. History is rewritten. FDR got on TV when the stock market crashed. The Emperor Hirihito signed the surrender document on the Missouri. Everything goes down the memory hole.
McCarthy, Ayn Rand and Whitaker Chambers gave us the heads up when tide could still be turned. Very few listened, Ronald Reagan being one.
The USSR should never have been able to flourish post war but that was FDR’s gift to America. I hate Commies and all of their spawn we have today.
Joe McCarthy nailed it! He wasn’t “early”. He pointed out the commies in government and got destroyed by the dem/libs and the MSM. The democRATS of the day were a breeding ground for the commies.
Yep, and a few other things besides McCarthy being right
The HUAC was started and run by (D) reps whose
party controlled Congress for the majority
of 50 years - libs always try to infer it was a GOP construct
Imagine how much more thriving our economy
would have been if we didnt have to
spend $ and blood to counter the Reds
Truman was a terrible President for many
reasons especially in this regard
It’s the HCUA
House Committee on UnAmerican Activities.
No he was not early.
He was late, and so are we.
Whittaker Chambers, Walter Krivitsky and others provided the FDR administration with details of Soviet penetration of our government in 1939, but the administration refused to act. Had they nailed Alger Hiss & Co. at that time, the latter decades of the 20th century would have been happier for the whole world.
