McCarthy had evidence of Communists conducting espionage. Liberals attacked him b/c they were fellow travelers with the USSR.

The liberal/communist are largely the ones today spreading the white supremacy smear campaign.

Um yeah ever heard the term prison gangs. You would be foolish to think they donít have influence in the outside world.
You're the one who limited their influence to prison in your description of them.

Well, there was indeed such evidence, as we learned from USSR files after the fall in 1989. But McCarthy was a drunk and a bozo. He would hold up a sheet of paper and exclaim (paraphrase) "I hold here in my hands a list of x known communists in the US government." But the number x varied wildly as he went from place to place talking to various groups. Once he said 205, once 57, once it was 10.

No, it's not. Communist infiltration of the government was a real (and big) problem in the 1940s and 1950s, much bigger than McCarthy ever imagined. White supremacy is an imaginary problem today.

So the title of the link says your wrong. All I did was post a link nothing else.

And the list on the other end of the link is stupid and doesn't match the title.

And Russians aren't buying up the USA, UK, dropping anchor babies by the 1,000's in Miami now.....and this isn't "infiltration" for now and the future?

Amazing.....

Here is the thing. Being a Communist is legal in this country. Organizing a political party is also. Having communists, christians, jews, socialist, mormon and anyone else IN the government is fine and dandy also....fully legal and fine under our constitution.

But foreign influence? THAT'S something that our Founders were really concerned about. But the modern Right seems to approve as long as it advanced their authoritarian or chaotic ways.
