The myth of "McCarthyism" is the greatest Orwellian fraud of our times. Liberals are fanatical liars, then as now. The portrayal of Sen. Joe McCarthy as a wild-eyed demagogue destroying innocent lives is sheer liberal hobgoblinism. Liberals weren't hiding under the bed during the McCarthy era. They were systematically undermining the nation's ability to defend itself, while waging a bellicose campaign of lies to blacken McCarthy's name. Liberals denounced McCarthy because they were afraid of getting caught, so they fought back like animals to hide their own collaboration with a regime as evil as the Nazis. As Whittaker Chambers said: "Innocence seldom utters outraged shrieks. Guilt does."

At the time, half the country realized liberals were lying. But after a half century of liberal myth-making, even the disgorging of Soviet and American archives half a century later could not overcome their lies. In 1995, the U.S. government released its cache of Soviet cables that had been decoded during the Cold War in a top-secret undertaking known as the Venona Project. The cables proved the overwhelming truth of McCarthy's charges. Naturally, therefore, the release of decrypted Soviet cables was barely mentioned by the New York Times. It might have detracted from stories of proud and unbowed victims of "McCarthyism." They were not so innocent after all, it turns out.

Soviet spies in the government were not a figment of right-wing imaginations. McCarthy was not tilting at windmills. He was tilting at an authentic communist conspiracy that had been laughed off by the Democratic Party. The Democrats had unpardonably connived with the greatest evil of the 20th century. This could not be nullified. But liberals could at least hope to redeem the Democratic Party by dedicating themselves to rewriting history and blackening reputations. This is what liberals had done repeatedly throughout the Cold War. At every strategic moment this century, liberals would wage a campaign of horrendous lies and disinformation simply to dull the discovery the American people had made. They had gotten good at it.

There were, admittedly, a few rare and striking exceptions to the left's overall obtuseness to communist totalitarianism. John F. Kennedy's pronouncements on communism could have been spoken by Joe McCarthy. For all his flaws, Truman unquestionably loved his country. He was a completely different breed from today's Democrats. Through the years, there were various epiphanic moments creating yet more anti-communist Democrats. The Stalin-Hitler pact, Alger Hiss' prothonotary warbler, information about the purges and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's "The Gulag Archipelago" all these had their effect.

But after World War II, the Democratic Party suffered a form of what France had succumbed to after World War I. The entire party had lost its nerve for sacrifice, heroism and bravery. Beginning in the '50s, there was a real battle for the soul of the Democratic Party. By the late '60s, the battle was over. The anti-communist Democrats had lost.

In 1972, George McGovern, darling of left-wing radicals, was the Democratic presidential candidate. Tom Hayden, leader of Students for a Democratic Society and an instigator of the Chicago riots, became a Democratic state senator in California. (In 1968, Staughton Lynd wrote of Tom Hayden: "On Monday, Wednesday and Friday he was a National Liberation Front guerilla, and on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, he ... was on the left wing of the Democratic Party.") Black Panther Bobby Rush would go on to become a Democratic congressman. Todd Gitlin, a former president of SDS, would soon be a frequent op-ed columnist for the New York Times. By the time of the 1991 Gulf War, only 10 Senate Democrats voted with President Bush to use troops against Saddam Hussein. If the old Democratic Party was merely obtuse, the new Democratic Party was a beachhead of domestic anti-Americanism. This was the new Democratic Party.

Clinton was the left's last best hope for proving they too could handle the presidency. Having tricked the American people into entrusting a Democrat with the White House (on a plurality vote), they had to defend him from any lie, any felony, any reprehensible, contemptible conduct he threw their way. When Clinton first showed his fat oleaginous mug to the nation, the Republicans screamed he was a draft-dodging, pot-smoking flim-flam artist. Had the Republicans turned out to be right again, it would have sounded the death knell for the Democratic Party.

So the Democrats lied. Through their infernal politics of personal destruction, liberals stayed in the game for a few more years.

Unless we fight for proper treatment of history and counter the nonsense images of McCarthy, no history can be safe from the liberal noise machine. Someday, school children will be taught that all of America cringed with terror at Ken Starr, whose evil designs on the nation were frustrated only through the sacrifice of brave liberals. People will have vivid images of the pounding boots of Starr's subpoena-servers and the Gestapo-like wails of alarms as Ken Starr arrived to kick in the doors of innocent Americans and storm through their bedrooms. It will be the Reign of Terror under Ken Starr.

Bill Clinton will be revered in high school history books as the George Washington of his day who, along with patriots Larry Flynt and James Carville, "saved the Constitution." He will be honored with a memorial larger than the Washington Monument (though probably with the same general design).

People will believe that. And liberals will continue unabashedly invoking a lie in order to shield their ongoing traitorous behavior.

Oh, Ann, foaming off at the mouth again. While there was an occasional Soviet spy in the American Government, (Alger Hiss) McCarthy spent more of his time chasing people in the entertainment industry like Arron Copeland than running a serious counter intelligence investigation. Remember the Army-McCarthy hearings? Thats when McCarthy put the army "on trial" for not giving preferential treatment to David Shine, one of Roy Cohn's best friends. The whole whose a communist hunt was done in such an indiscriminate manner that it caused the termination of our best China and Asia experts from the State Department like John Patton Davis who could have been very useful when we were just starting to muck around in Vietnam. She's one hell of a bomb thrower but logic is not her strong suit.

Come on. That woman is truly a moron. And by the way, JFK was a horrible ****. I don't care if he was a Democrat.

Also, so a Black Panther made it into politics...Good on him. If I'd been a black man in the 60's, I would have been a Black Panther too.

"Innocence seldom utters outraged shrieks. Guilt does."

Very dangerous statement.

Really, even in the case of this article. We are talking a major smear campaign against a Senator here. And, documents from Russia have proven him correct in the mean time. Yet, the myth still persists, rather then the people and party responsible being the ones with egg on their faces. And consequently, they were the ones uttering the outraged shrieks.

I find it interesting that documentation proving his accusations has been found in Russia, and people would still trust those who mounted such a heated smear campaign.

I was around for the Black Panthers. I support the ideas of the group to a point. However, I am adamantly opposed to any form of Communism or Socialism. They are detrimental to freedom and freedom loving people.

Thats a general statement being made though.

Yes it is. And I like the statement. Innocent people usually trust in the courts, untill it screws them over.

Guilty people usually protest their innocence up until the end.

Ofcourse, as in most things in life, there are always exceptions.

Senator McCarthy isn't right because the Soviets were conducting espionage in the United States. He's wrong because he "prosecuted" people for being communists or socialists, which is, unfortunately for him and Ann Coulter, a Constitutionally-protected right.

You have had the honor of meeting Ann Coulter? Wow, thats pretty cool.

And you had sex with JFK? Was he really that bad?

Yes he was a Democrat. And he supported Tax Cuts, staying out of Vietnam, and he was a war hero. I admired him when I was a boy growing up, and I think all in all he was a good man with faults. We never really got to see what kind of a President he made though, it ended to quickly.

Clinton was a draft-dodging pot smoker? That's funny, because I thought Dubya was a drunk-driving, cocaine-snorting deserter.

I don't believe that in the least. The truly innocent feel no need to protest until they have been rail roaded, then they begin to protest. They trust in the system, until it screws them over.

Don't be an idiot. I don't need to meet Ann Coulter to know she's a moron. Do you think she's smart based on her writing?

You like JFK huh? Three Words: Bay of Pigs.

That is a pathetic approach to determining guilt. You are a crypto-fascist. Move to North Korea, because you have nothing in common with "Freedom-Loving People". Have a nice day.

You guys are easy to get going.

Protesting your innocence to the police is not the same thing. You would likely be more concerned with getting a good lawyer and proving your innocence, since you were innocent. You would not be spending your time publishing your innocence in the paper and broadcasting it in the media, say like O.J. Simpson or Robert Blake.

Also, I did not say that I thought that the quote was neccessarily 100% accurate in what it states. Only that I like the quote. Though the innocent may protest their innocence, the guilty will also, and usually in a much louder and profound way. "I have hired a dectitive to find the true perpetrators of this crime."

And Wastrel, what the heck is a crypto-facist, and how in the hell did you make such a leap? Are you trying to say the guilty always profess their guilt? Dare to dream.

Besides, freedom loving love free speach, which I exercise. I will not call you a fool, inexperienced, or just plain ignorant because I disagree with what you say. You sure do conclude a lot about me because of a quote I happen to like.

I bet you are the diversity type, the both of you. And you have no idea what diversity is, beyond the color of a persons skin.

Okay Wastrel, I will only say this once to you.

My Mother was born in Germany during the time of the Nazis, true facists. I am insulted at your dig, and I think you are a lessor person then you were before for using it. Luckily, I am not to thin skinned, but you deserve to know that I was offended by that racist remark. Do not ever direct such an insult my way again sir, or I will take it up with the administrator.
