McCarthyism has parallels to current events

If Joe McCarthy was alive and well today he'd be right in his element. 'Tail gunner Joe' knew a thing or two about a good situation when he saw it. Bob Mueller's current witch hunt would have been right up his alley. Joe became disenchanted with the Dems and switched to the Republicans, but like today's Rinos, he'd had no qualms teeming up with Mueller to pound the prez.

So ironic that Jim Comey, in an attempt to mollify his party's situation (a condition he helped create) would liken the Republican memo to McCarthyism's witch hunts of the 1950s, which in turn mirrors what Bob Mueller is doing today. Now, some 65 years later the Democrats have a nifty little witch hunt of their own and as with Joe McCarthy the hunters have now become the hunted! How awesome and crazy is that?

Someone on FoxNews said it first, and I wish it would have been me, but may I add that tail-gunner Joe wasn't that far off the tract. If you know your history you'd know he was right on about Communists in the government. Remember the Rosenbergs? They weren't in the government but Ethel's brother, David Greenglass was on the atomic bomb project and was able to pass classified documents to them. For that they paid with their lives. Charges against state department liaison Owen Lattimore were never proven, yet others such as Harry Gold and Klaus Fuchs were ruined.

Today, as in the 50s Dems are in damage control frantically accusing Republicans of the very thing they're guilty of-colluding with the Russians. Republicans say the memo clearly show Democrats plotting to destroy the Trump government. We watched on live TV as Jim Comey brazenly said that AG Loretta Lynch instructed him to call the Hillary email scandal “a matter” — not an investigation. If that's not suborning perjury, what is it?
