Absolutely right. We loved the House Un-American Activities Committee, and the only good communist was a dead communist.

I'm actually debating this on another list. The diatribe is very interesting.
Indeed, the espionage and treason, proven again by the Venona transcriptsthe intercepted coded messages from Soviet agents to Moscowwere far more extensive than even McCarthy imagined.
The current claim is that none of the people McCarthy prosecuted were in the Verona transcripts.
The Rosenbergs were communist traitors who gave their Russian handlers secrets of the atom bomb.
Oppenheimer gave the USSR the secrest of the atom bomb. The Rosenbergs had given what little they could find, but it wasn't enough to build one. What the Rosenbergs did give was the proximity fuse which has killed far more people over the years by the USSR and it's allies. However, the mere existance of this wrong sentence is sufficient to condemn the entire article by leftists.
Oppenheimer, of course, was protected by the Justice Department. So McCarthy is excoriated for punishing the wrong people for the wrong crime without any proof. McCarthy apparently pulled the handle that hung the Rosenbergs if Leftists are to be believed.
So bits of the article need a bit more depth to be useful.
Here get this...one of these guys considered "modern" Nazis to hold the following beliefs:
The new Nazis:
Hate the government
Oppose the Income Tax
Oppose Gun Control
Oppose Affirmative Action
Support Prayer in School
And on and on. All positions taken by the Right, and by Libertarians in particular.
This is how deep the hatred goes against us.

Didn't our State Department (Marshall) actually provide support to Mao during the fall of China?
