The Real McCarthy Record

by James J. Drummey
A longtime smear campaign has clouded the truth.

James J. Drummey is a former senior editor of THE NEW AMERICAN. This article appeared originally in the May 11, 1987 issue of this magazine.

Nearly 40 years after the death of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, twice-elected United States Senator from Wisconsin, the term "McCarthyism" is still widely used as a convenient epithet for all that is evil and despicable in the world of politics. Hardly a month passes without some reference to "McCarthyism" in the print or electronic media. Despite the frequency with which the term is invoked, however, it is quite clear that not one critic of McCarthy in a hundred has the slightest idea of what he said and did during that controversial period from 1950 to 1954.
Whether Joe McCarthy was right or wrong, it is important that we know the truth about him. If he was wrong, then we can learn some important lessons for the future. If he was right, then we need to be vitally concerned about the issues he raised because virtually nothing has been done to deal effectively with those issues since the mid-1950s.

This article will attempt to answer many of the questions asked about Joe McCarthy and the criticisms directed at him. The responses are based on years of study of McCarthy's speeches and writings, congressional hearings in which he was involved, and more than a score of books about him, most of them highly critical and condemnatory.

I. The Years Before 1950

Q. Was Joseph McCarthy a lax and unethical judge?

A. Joe McCarthy was elected as a circuit judge in Wisconsin in 1939 and took over a district court that had a backlog of more than 200 cases. By eliminating a lot of legal red tape and working long hours (his court remained open past midnight at least a dozen times), Judge McCarthy cleared up the backlog quickly and, in the words of one local newspaper, "administered justice promptly and with a combination of legal knowledge and good sense."

It's not always the quantity that wins, most times it's the quality. Not the bigness of the dog, but the 'fight' in the dog, no matter the size.
Right {sic}, isn't that the same thoughts of McVeigh before he bombed the federal building in Ok. which also housed a kindegarden school and its students.

A young Marine from my hometown was sitting at his desk in front of a window when that window blew into his face!

"Whether Joe McCarthy was right or wrong".

What? If he was wrong and had succeeded in destroying innocent lives and professions, you believe that would have been ok?

Q. Had Joseph McCarthy ever spoken out against communism prior to his famous speech in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1950?

A. Those who contend that McCarthy stumbled across communism while searching for an issue to use in his 1952 re-election campaign will be disappointed to know that the senator had been speaking out against communism for years. He made communism an issue in his campaign against Howard McMurray in 1946, charging that McMurray had received the endorsement of the Daily Worker, the Communist Party newspaper. In April 1947, McCarthy told the Madison Capital Times that his top priority was "to stop the spread of communism."

During a speech in Milwaukee in 1952, Senator McCarthy dated the public phase of his fight against communists to May 22, 1949, the night that former Secretary of Defense James Forrestal was found dead on the ground outside Bethesda Naval Hospital. "The communists hounded Forrestal to his death," said McCarthy. "They killed him just as definitely as if they had thrown him from that sixteenth-story window in Bethesda Naval Hospital." McCarthy said that "while I am not a sentimental man, I was touched deeply and left numb by the news of Forrestal's murder. But I was affected much more deeply when I heard of the communist celebration when they heard of Forrestal's murder. On that night, I dedicated part of this fight to Jim Forrestal."

Thus, Joe McCarthy was receptive in the fall of 1949 when three men brought to his office a 100-page FBI report alleging extensive communist penetration of the State Department. The trio had asked three other senators to awaken the American people to this dangerous situation, but only McCarthy was willing to take on this volatile project.

Fed Up Conservatives Ditch Facebook for the 'Tea Party Community'
They're tired of the 'retribution' they face on the popular networking site

Some conservatives have decided to ditch Facebook for an alternative that looks decidedly like, well, Facebook.
It's a social network dubbed the " Tea Party Community," formed by a group of right-leaning social media fans who claim they've been bullied by legions of liberal Facebook users. So now they're doing their own thing:
"It's a new home for conservatives and the Tea Party movement in America," said site co-found Ken Crow, who claims it to be a "safe haven for the conservative movement where we can share ideas and thoughts without fear of retribution."

On December 2, 1954, the Senate voted to censure Senator McCarthy.making him one of the few senators ever to be disciplined in this fashion. McCarthy died in Bethesda Naval Hospital on May 2, 1957, at the age of 48. The official cause of death was acute hepatitis; it is widely accepted that this was caused, or at least exacerbated, by alcoholism.
.
Strange how that those that use the "commie fear" tactic to gain money and power like McCarthy, Rush and Beck are all alcoholics and drug addicts.
this is priceless, HEY CONSERVATIVES OUT THERE, check out this post, the libotards ran out of Bush excuses now they went all the way back to 1954 to blame somebody for something so they can continue to justify their whatevers, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

warnings from russian people, my you libotard traitors have sure united our country,

Warning From Russia: Americans, Never Give Up Guns

Gun Control: As the administration considers repealing the Second Amendment via executive order, a reminder of its true purpose comes from a country that has suffered greatly from murderous and criminal tyrants.

'The president is going to act," said Vice President Joe Biden, who is conducting meetings all week on possible gun-control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Conn. "There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet, but we're compiling it all." Never mind the Constitution says the right to keep and bear arms for any purpose "shall not be infringed."

Your statement is an egregious error!
(Such broad-sweeping generalizations usually are).
The LMS continues to ignore a real statistic of the recent elections; in key "Battle ground" states, a majority of counties did not vote for the Obama/Biden ticket. Nevada is one of many:

See for yourself-http://www.realclearp olitics.com/elections/

How is it that some of these counties reported less than 2% of the majority voting for candidate B when the national average was as close as 49% to 51% split? Statistical analysis and laws of "probability" are undeniable. FRAUD on a massive scale perpetrated in Democratic counties, aided and abetted in these few "Battle Ground" states.

Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted men to be judged by the contents of their character and not by the color of their skin.

I wonder what he would think of college applications, job applications, promotion evaluations, etc. having a place which indicates...race?

So much for equality.....

NEWS Flash: February 1, 2013

Death penalty is still favored in a recent poll by two-thirds of Kentuckians.

Then why is Ricky Kelly, who bragged about killing 10 men and is on trial for killing a rival drug
dealer, death penalty dropped?

Hint: Eric Holder, AG for the U.S. decided against pursuing the death penalty against Kelly and co-defendant......no reason given.
