Wait… So He Is a Bad Guy Again?

You know, just months ago, Conservatives were preaching the notion that Joseph McCarthy was smeared by liberals.  That he was being unfairly remembered by history.  That it was pure liberal historical revisionism.  Ann Coulter wrote:

“Everything you think you know about McCarthy is a hegemonic lie. Liberals denounced McCarthy because they were afraid of getting caught, so they fought back like animals to hide their own collaboration with a regime as evil as the Nazis.”

Jonah Goldberg wrote:

What makes McCarthyism so hard to discuss is that McCarthy behaved like a jerk, but he was also right.

Conservatives have tried to paint him as a maligned hero. Well, that’s over.  Now that the Democrats are fully in power?

Fox News’ Shepherd Smith compared Barney Frank to McCarthy.  So did Limbaugh.  So, apparently?  McCarthy is a villain again.  Tough break, Joe.

According to the McCarthy apologists

  1. I chuckled the first time I heard that.

    One of the things I really love about watching politics is seeing how one side will complain about the other using ‘unfair’ tactics against them when they’re in power, and then do the same exact thing the second they’re OUT of power.

    Right down to the “Hitler/Nazi” comments.
