McCarthy Was Right.

On his radio show, Ed Shultz (never heard of him) declared, "The country does not feel the same way the teabaggers do...Welcome to the House Unamerican Activities Committee, 2009 version...I can just envision Senator McCarthy somewhere in the depths of Hell just smiling about all of this."

I'm going to use this opportunity to give a little history lesson. McCarthy was right. Exhibit A: The VENONA Project. It proved McCarthy's suspicions and yet, shockingly enough, received little to no coverage. Many of you may be hearing about this for the first time (just as I did when I first read Ann Coulter's book Treason, which is excellent by the way). Roosevelt laughed it off when he was informed that there were communists in his company. Hoover gave Truman a list of known communists in the government and Truman ignored it. Hiss, the Rosenbergs, and others were guilty as sin. But high school history teachers (including mine a few years ago) and liberal professors still tell you that McCarthy was crazy liar. Oh how liberals love distoring history.

McCarthy was actually right about a lot of things. If you haven't already read it, check out Ann Coulter's book Treason- it's a great debunking of many of the McCarthy myths that have been pushed on America by the media and educational elites.
