Joe McCarthy was a hero whose name was smeared by very real Communists who had infiltrated influential areas of American life.
Did y'all know that actor Will Geer, "Grandpa Walton", was one of the first registered Communists in the USA in the 1930s? That hurt his career as young man and rightfully so. Many more Hollywood types were known to have commie ties but could not come out of the closet.
JM was blowing their cover and thus had to be silenced by a vigorous hate campaign that idiots like Tom Hanks and Sean Penn continue to advance to this day.
Of course, ground zero for the cultural poison McCarthy warned about can be traced to college professors and "elite" writers after WW2. Today's swarm of mindless liberals in journalism, the arts, and grammar school teaching jobs would not exist without the groundwork laid by these Marxist thugs of yesteryear.
