I don't recall McCarthy being so much anti-Russian as anti-communist. Russia ain't communist anymore, but the Left, the Progressives in America and around the world ARE, and while we can applaud truth and transparency, lets not lose perspective in all of this.
The Communists TOLD us how they would do this...through the media and through our schools, which is EXACTLY how it has been done.
Communists were violently against liberty and free speech, and it wasn't just about power....it was the communist ideology that told them that a dictatorial tyranny was an absolute necessity in the communist metamorphosis to pure communism.
Communists never believed they would defeat us through war, that was never their intention. It was about creating infection centers around the globe that could be used to spread their disease.
Communists are seeking their own caliphate, a world domination that is put in place by force and intimidation, just as the jihadists see it.
The war mongers were always going to attach themselves to perceived and amplified threats to justify THEIR existence, but the true threat of communism was completely ignored beyond military implications.
"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." -- Quote attributed to Norman Thomas (possibly by Upton Sinclair)
