      >McCarthy was lunatic!
      Why?
      >U-Uh he claimed that various people and organisations from media and the political sphere were communists-
      So he was right?
      >NO YOU CAN’T JUS-
      Further, aren’t more and more american politicans and celebrities straight up admitting to communist sympathies?
      >STOOOOOP-
      What about the openly marxist universities? It seems like he was right after all.

      My point? "McCarthyism" was a meme-tier commie invention, created to discredit proof of America’s marxists existance.

        planed away deliberately by the left. standard practice today is far worse than anything maccarthy stood for – the pimping of the red scare isn’t so different from the bit in 1984 where the archetypal prole is asked whether capitalists really were allowed to rape workers’ wives. a distortion peddled to make an unflattering reality appear sugar sweet

        McCarthy slandered a ridiculous amount of people and 0 communist spies were caught as a result of his efforts.
        He led an insane crusade against innocent people over imagined communism.

        >Openly Marxist universities
        Meds.

        1. most of those accused of communist sympathies were not slandered, they really were fellow travelers. by today’s standards, maccarthy was right and you only say otherwise out of a superstitious commitment to the red scare mythos for reasons you don’t really understand beyond offhand comments in the simpsons and so on.
        2. before maccarthy the communist party of the united states deliberately insinuated members into the film industry. they are the reason why you think walt disney was an anti semite.
        3. the anti-communist blacklist maccarthy spearheaded was a response to the informal communist party blacklist, which made it difficult for those deemed politically nonviable to work in the industry.

          Communists weren’t blacklisted from Hollywood because of McCarthy’s list, they were blacklisted because they refused to comply to a subpoena to testify about not being soviet plants

        People who think universities are Marxist make me laugh. I freaking wish they were Marxist, marxists don’t have time for “queer theory” or endless jerking off over slavery.

        Universities are as liberal as they’ve always been.

          Why would you want universities to be even more unproductive indoctrination centers.

            Marxism is at least a challenge to liberalism. People who actually believe in Marxism and engage with it seriously are usually somewhat intelligent and thoughtful in a way that most generic college libtards aren’t.

            Marxism is a essentially a form of modernism. A marxist critique nowadays seems conservative in an academic landscape that is steadily adopting post-modern interpretive forms.
            Honestly it is laughable whenever some naïve anon equates Marxism as an interpretative framework with Marxist-Leninism as was historically practice by Soviets and Chinese and claims universities are teaching this.

          Doesn’t matter they still use a Marxist platform, just like most mughal emperors weren’t practicing strict shariah yet were seen as Muslims

          There were actually quite a few known spies identified in his list, something like 5-6.

      The reason “McCarthyism” is a dirty word is because McCarthy was already too late.

      I’m not very knowledgeable about the subject but isn’t this like how Spanish Republicans did "antifascist" purges before there were any real fascist in Spain and basically just made people genuine sympathize with fascism and join it?

      Dude was an idiot who ignored the real communist spies in DC while beating up random Hollywood actors.

      McCarthy was right about the Communist subversion but he was wrong to oppose it.
