Leftist-Demonized American Hero, Senator Joe McCarthy

I am old enough to remember Christian, free, pre-Socialist America

I remember when Hollywood and the News Media went totally Communist, and took the Democrat Party along with it

Vic Biorseth, Friday, August 05, 2022

I am old enough to remember the McCarthy Hearings, which, to me, marked the beginning of the end of Christian, free, non-Socialized America.

As to which actually came first, between a Communist News Media and a Communist Democrat Party, that's another chicken versus egg question, that began way back with the Woodrow Wilson seduction of the news media. Wilson, a racist, Confederate/Democrat anti-American from childhood, was already in the Communist camp, so most likely, it was the Democrat-becoming-Marxocrat Party, then led by Wilson, that began the communization of the news media. The News industry, Academia, education and Hollywoood nobility were already somewhat communized by the Cultural Marxism movement, but Wilson took the point all the way home.

That was before my time, but the McCathy Hearings may have been my awakening point. What got my radar up was an abusive verbal whipping delivered by a mere lawyer to a U.S. Senator, on camera, and how he got away with that. The lawyer was Joseph N. Welsh, who was defending the Army against McCarthy's claims of being infiltrated by communists. At question was the communism or communist alignment of one of Welsh's own assistant attorneys, Fred Fisher.

What astonished me, as it seemed to me at the time, and still does today, was how nobody picked up on the fact that Welsh never even addressed whether Fred Fisher actually was compromised. He just went after McCarthy for daring to imply it. Look at the hearings yourself, and you will see that the original charge was never responded to. Welsh just went into attack mode, and McCarthy appeared to be flummoxed and unable to properly respond.

But that didn't make him wrong.

As it turned out, he was right; Fred Fisher was indeed compromised, and so was Welsh and his whole law firm. And so was the news media that was filming, recording and commenting on the McCarthy Hearings.

It was there, right there, that communism in America turned a legal contest into a political one, and won it, and turned the tables on the legal quest for truth in America. The 'legal truth' would thereafter be what the media and the political powers-that-be said it was, rather than what it actually was.

It turned out that all of the names on the giant McCarthy list of communists all really were communists. That is known today. But get this:

No One Cares Any More.

Proving that the damage has been done, and the damage is permanent.

The term McCarthyism remains a slur; an unchallenged term for wild conspiracy theories with no evidence. It is now a totally enculturated lie in America.

And the educational dumbing-down of America helps to keep it that way.

But we weren't totally socialist yet. I still remember the whole class standing and pledging allegiance to the flag in a public school. I still remember the whole class standing and praying the Lord's Prayer (the Protestant-ized version, including the 'for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever', in a public school. The words were right up there on the wall above the blackboard.

I remember when vagrancy was a crime. If you where begging, or camping on public or private space and had no money, had no job and no visible means of support, you would be arrested, fed, taken to the county line and told to not come back. Nobody wanted bums hanging around.

I remember when public drunkenness, too, meant a night in jail.

I remember when criminals were in prisons, and lunatics were in asylums.

I remember when discovery of homosexuality or crimes like adultery got people jail time and got servicemen dishonorable discharges.

I remember when any form of sex outside of marriage between one man and one woman was scandalous and roundly condemned by everyone. Now, any social stigma attached to such things is condemned as scandalous, and even the slightest criticism of illicit sex, or of any kind of sexual deviancy, perversion or sin is itself stigmatized. Indeed, the very idea of sin is socially condemned today.

Morals - morality itself - is today socially anathema and unacceptable.

I remember when advancement in school grades, educational advancement, advancement in the workplace, career, business, sports, government, entertainment, art, and literally everything, including life itself, was all strictly merit-based. Now, it is race-based, sex-based, imaginary gender-based, politics-based, "disenfranchised"-based, gender-pronoun-based, etc., i.e., intersection-based, and merit has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Just look at the intersectionality and the absolute incompetence of our current President, Vice President, their entire Cabinet and all of their closest advisors and appointees.

This is a particular failure of all Marxists: the inability to recognize merit when it's right in front of them. Everyone cannot do everything, but everyone can do something; everyone can find something that they love to do and that they can do well. People sort that out in the living of their lives; they find what they love to do, and then they do it well. Or not. But the first rule always applies:

  • Everyone cannot do everything, and no one can do everything.

Marxists actually believe that anyone can do anything.

Any cook should be able to run the country. --Vladimir I Lenin

Every cook has to learn how to govern the state. --Vladimir I Lenin

I believe in one thing only, the power of human will. --Joseph Stalin

Right. All anyone needs is a lot of will power, and they can do anything. In the early history of the Russian revolution, the Bolsheviks killed off all of the Kulaks (farmers) and then drafted agricultural armies to produce the nations food, but the drafted farmers didn't know how to farm. The result was, of course, a famine of epic proportions in which millions of Russians died.

They really believed that farming is a simple thing which anyone can do. They still actually believe that. And that anyone can do anything. Even after the hard, cold reality of the disastrous results of forcing it on the populace proved them wrong, they still believe it.

They actually believe that Pete Buttigieg is a competent Secretary of Transportation, not because of merit, but because he is a sodomite, it's high time sodomites broke their glass ceilings and rose up in society, and after all, anyone can be a Secretary of Transportation.


Marxism is a form of serious and dangerous insanity

They're not only Marxist, they're crazy. The two things go together. Everyone in the Biden administration, including Biden himself, is utterly incompetent in their jobs. They are also crazy, i.e., schizophrenic.

Schizophrenia involves delusions, hallucinations and a mental break with reality: the inability to recognize and deal properly with reality.

That pretty well describes history's greatest Marxists, and it is a pretty good description of America's leading Marxocrat party stalwarts today.

Now whether or not their "disinformation" descriptions of their political policies and political agenda items, and false descriptions of real things, like their descriptions of an economic recession, or a pandemic, or the climate, or earth sustainability, or American history, or real racism, or actual sexes, etc., etc., etc., are due to actual hallucinations and they are actually deluded, I will leave to the psychiatrists, if there are still any around who are not Marxist themselves.

(Any Freudian is just as likely as any Darwinist to be a Marxist.)

But whether they are themselves deluded, or they are purposely deluding others for purely political purposes, the effect is exactly the same. They pose a danger to themselves and to others, and to all of America, and to all of humanity, and they ought to be locked up.

They are a menace to society. They are the cause of social disorder. They fully intend to destroy America as a Constitutional Republic.

They are criminally seditious. If they hold constitutional office, they have violated their oaths of office and should not be kept in office. They are domestic enemies of the constitution they swore to uphold, and that makes them traitors. Committers of treason. 

GITMO would be a good place for them, and also for all the criminal aliens, especially the MS-13 types, they have criminally brought in and transported all over America. Once they are removed from us they can be studied to see which ones of them really belong in a nuthouse rather than a prison; maybe the Navy could make a nuthouse partition of GITMO and keep them there. 

America needs Trump as never before.

Everyone is talking about who his Vice President ought to be; for my two cents worth, it should be Don Jr., or Eric, or Ivana. Any one of them would make a good Vice President, a good Secretary of State or a good Secretary of the Treasury.

It's high time America had some real American citizen representation, hoesty and sanity in high office, with outstanding business acumen rather than pure political slight-of-hand trickery and behind-the-scenes dependence on the K-street lobbyists representing oligarchs, plutocrats and the likes of George Soros.

And when President Trump's second Presidency ends, America needs someone of his type ready in the wings to carry on his legacy and not only keep America great, but make it even greater. Who better than his own outstanding, highly accomplished kids?

As a matter of reality, there just ain't nobody else out there like them.
