Can we have a thread about McCarthy? All I ever was taught about him in high school was that he caused the red scare and was a relatively terrible person. I would like to know the truth about him. Such as were there really as many communists as he was claiming? Was he actually a pretty cool dude? Did we not heed his warning effectively?
Nice trips. But really there is not a reliable source out there. All truth and history is muddled up. All I can find is that he caused a great sort of witch hunt in the sense. Which caused many people to be accused and arrested. So I ask were they actually commies or were they just accused as being one?
Not to mention declassified FBI documents about the connection between the civil rights movement and communists, was on some .gov library.
Well, the man was no saint but he was right about communist infiltrators, agitators, and spies trying to subvert the west.
Patton was right too.
George Lincoln Rockwell went off the deep end but he wasn't entirely wrong.
