re: #17 Lidane

So basically, you’re going to ignore the real history of McCarthy in favor of what you’d like to believe? Fair enough.

I am calling for a logical, objective look into history and the actual facts.

Don’t expect a whole lot of sympathy for that, though. The guy was an asshole, a fear-monger, and ruined the lives of many good people. He was a contemptible little troll of a man.

Again, he was all of those characterizations. The only disagreement I have is ‘ruined the lives of many good people’. They were card carrying members.

Also? The Cold War ended back when the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union collapsed. It’s been over 20 years now. Red baiting and looking for a mythical commie threat in this day and age is as laughable as it is outdated.

I have zero disagreement with you on this.

Here is what makes me tick:

It comes down to this in my mind. I believe in honoring, obeying and sustaining the laws of the land. Even though I hate a LOT of them, I will still obey them. At that time, those participants involved went against the law of the land.
