In his famous speech on February 9th, 1950, McCarthy brought public a list of 57 known communists working for the state department. These revelations took the American public by storm. Out of all the Senators and public figures in Washington, only McCarthy had the courage to stand up against communist infiltration. It was a deed that McCarthy's leftist critics would never forgive him for.o
For the next four years, Senator Joseph McCarthy stood undeterred against the strong socialist influence in Washington, exposing literally hundreds of anti-American operatives working incognito for the US Government.” (SOURCE)
ONLY 57 Communists? Good Grief!
If Joe McCarthy was alive today, and engaged in the same investigation, there’s a pretty good chance he’d have to use a set of hand trucks, or a dolly, to roll the current list of suspected communists, plus the socialists and Marxists working for, employed by, or otherwise involved with the US government.
We must remember, dear reader, that was 1950. It was early in the socialist movement in the American mainstream media, which would, as time passed, become so strong it would sanitize the socialist/marxist/communist movement to infiltrate the US government. Today that movement controls, approximately, half of the three branches of the current US government.
If the American citizen of today were as smart -- and as well educated -- as the Americans of the 1950’s we would be storming the US seat of government demanding a purge of our government and a return to a constitution centered government, the legacy of this nation’s founders, which has now been discarded in favor of a socialist agenda with the ultimate goal of creating a socialist/marxist/communist government in which the state controls American’s lives from the cradle to the grave –and – presumes to replace God with the state as the object of citizen’s worship.
If you doubt this, notice how the American mainstream media has assumed the position of Praetorian Guard to the Obama Administration -- itself riddled with socialists and Marxists. In fact, many conservative commentators are convinced that Obama, himself, is a socialist. Some even go so far as to accuse him of actually being a communist.
Not today. Today, with political correctness squeezing the life out of truth, even McCarthy’s name is a dirty word. But that is what political correctness does. It stifles truth. It slams the brakes on any discussion of whether or not Senator McCarthy was right – or not. It makes certain a public discussion of whether the US government is held captive by communists, socialists, and Marxists is, in fact, true – or not darn near impossible.
Political correctness is an oft-used tool to MISLEAD the public, as well. Was Joe McCarthy all the terrible and evil things we are told … or have we been mislead? Political correctness is the tool wielded by the left to make darn sure the other side is never, ever, heard.
In modern America, we embrace socialism, Marxism, and communism. McCarthy saw it as the threat to America that it was in the 1950’s and as it is today. It is a cancer eating away at America’s soul. It is terminal. It WILL kill America.
And there is NOBODY standing tall and pointing out to Americans the evil disease rotting our nation from within.
Unfortunately, Americans bought into the propaganda from the left concerning the “evil” McCarthy. Believing it themselves, they became zealous in disseminating it to the masses.
But the truth has a way of surviving just about everything. Now we know from information gathered from studies of old Soviet files in Moscow and the famous Vanona Intercepts -- FBI recordings of Soviet embassy communications between 1944-48 – the actual record of that period in American history is proving that McCarthy was essentially right.
Would it even be possible to create an Un-American Activities Committee today in either the US House of Representatives or the US Senate? The answer is an emphatic – NO!
Another question: Would the American people support such an effort? Here is the most telling answer of all – NO!
America does not want the truth because we are no longer capable of handling the truth.
And so we perish -- at our own hand.
