    BBC ‘Error?’ The Truth About McCarthy’s Brave Crusade Will Out! 


     

    bacon-and-eggs

    ……………………………………………………………………….

    Wow, another bright sunny Jakarta Sunday, presenting me with a dilemma – bacon and eggs for breakfast, or get going, enjoy the gorgeous weather, and have that most perfect of morning meals for brunch, when I get back!

    But first, a quick review of a significant news item from last week!

    ==========

    Joseph_McCarthy Senator Joe

    ————————-

    …in 1953 he was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee – part of the McCarthy hearings into communism in America.  http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34012395

    Pity the BBC’s scribbler is ignorant, of even the most basic facts about the USA’s Constitution. The House of Representatives and the US Senate are no more identical than the Commons and the Lords, to use a comparison easily understood by British readers.

    • So HUAC was not part, nor could be part, of Senator Joe McCarthy’s heroic onslaught against Communist subversion, He ran the Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee, if I’m not mistaken, and while both bodies did valuable work, they were quite separate.

    The BBC extract does, however, confirm that their respective endeavours were entirely legitimate. The phrase ‘Fifth Amendment Communist’ was applied to undesirables who abused the constitution to hide their enemy allegiance.

    ============================

    • communism
    • ==========
    • Cedric Belfrage, now conclusively exposed as a Soviet spy…
    • Traitor Belfrage -he should have been executed
    • …was one of many who were cornered by patriot investigation and refused to confess to their treason.
    • I’ve written before…

      America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 

       … about how –

    • – those Communist swine hid behind the Fifth Amendment when asked if they were or had been members of the CPUSA. That plea was as clear as could be. Any decent citizen would have replied with an indignant NEVER!

      Or, if they had previously been guilty of such treasonable allegiance and had since seen the light, they’d not only have owned up but volunteered to help all investigations into the Fifth Column  into whose service that Fifth Amendment had been pressed.

      When patriotic citizens responded to the scum by ostracism or dismissal from jobs they didn’t deserve, what happened?The Reds were portrayed as victims, while in many a (if not every) case, the honourable men and women who lifted the stones off the Communist conspiracy were vilified and persecuted.

    • oooooooooooooooooooo
    • communism tyranny
    • ooooooooooooooooooo

    Public loathing was a very modest price to pay, compared to what they merited.

      I hope you enjoyed your bacon and eggs as much as I enjoyed reading this.

      All those Communists in the 1950s are back, those who are still alive, and boosted by a new generation, the Hanoi Janes and Robert REDford, all so happy to run dwn our country.
      At least if they had showed some integrity and admitted they were working for America’s enemies, at least they might have earned a little respect, but no, they were in the wrong but refused to admit it, fifth amendment comminists to a man.
      McCarthy was a great man, and there should be statues to him everywhere, and a holiday in his name, same as MLK has.
      A real knight valiant for freedom.

    Not Ashamed of Her Cleavage, Only Her Politics! Pinko Priyanga? 


    I got home some time ago, but almost immediately had a very welcome visitor appear at my garden gate, so only now back to the lap-top.

    And I see a comment, one of the few not stirred up by my recent focus on Tony Abbott’s attempt to disguise real Australian feelings about Indonesia’s death penalty.

    The comment concerns Priyanga Burford.

    ===========

    actress

    —–

    She’s the actress who accepted a leading role in Channel 4’s Goebbels-style attack on UKIP. Not a bad looker, and nor should she be backward in displaying the good looks her Creator has seen fit to provide.

    But she’s certainly a lot less forthcoming when it comes to her politics.

    ——————————–

    • ——————————-
    • Most of us, including me, don’t go out of our way to be ‘in your face’ when it comes to political commitments. If you’re blogging, of course you will be.
    • But outside the public sphere, it’s not really relevant. At social events, it can be seen as rude.
    • ———–

    However, having freely devoted her doubtless abundant talents to participation in a vicious attempt to do down the Peoples Party in the immediate run-up to the British General Election, Priyanga cannot be allowed to get away with obfuscation.

    00000000000000000

    • oooooooooooooooooooooo
    • When asked what her own politics were, she disgracefully dissed the public’s right to know by saying the question was ‘irrelevant.’

    It’s not, and, given her reluctance to answer, we are bound to ask if she’s got some unwholesome connections in the left-lib media world.

    Let’s keep digging till she comes clean.

    oooooooooooooo

    ooooo

     

    Pleading the Fifth might work for ‘American’ Reds, but the ‘British’ Left is not entitled to that stupid ‘constitutional right.’

    America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 


    Just been watching Marathon Man, quite a good old movie, but I’d forgotten how the producers used it to hammer home the character assassination of the late Senator Joe McCarthy. Some ‘history professor’ tells a class that Tail-Gunner Joe ran a ‘tyrannical purge’ in the 1950s.

    oooooooooooooooooooooo

    hogwashmeterred

    What utter hogwash, and of course not one of his students knew enough to refute the smear. Not that any such riposte would have been permitted in the film script.

    But the episode made me think about terminology.

    These days, people like Snowden and the Wikileaks creep are ubiquitously described as ‘whistle-blowers’  – for some reason, revealing top secret documents etc., some of which embarrass notables but many of which endanger Western security, is regarded as almost heroic.

    In contrast, back when I was a wee lad in that golden age known as The Fifties, patriots in America who stood up and told the truth about treason were smeared as ‘informers.’

    Elia Kazan: biggest rat of the pack | Film | The Guardian

    His offence?

    He’d exposed the communist scum in Hollywood, a hero, unlike vermin like Dalton Trumbo, who hid behind legal technicalities to avoid answering the simple question – was he a Communist. The vermins’ ideological heirs  in 2007 even turned out to stage a Comsymp demo, and debate raged.

     

         Joan Scott, a writer who was blacklisted along with her husband,
    Adrian Scott, one of the Hollywood 10, said: "Like Judas, informers are
    never forgiven. I had to go into hiding to avoid a subpoena. Being
    blacklisted still affects me." 
    
         Kazan defenders were equally vociferous in support of the director. 
    "Mr. Kazan was a moral hero," said Scott McConnell, a leader of the Ad Hoc
    Committee for Naming Facts, organized by the Ayn Rand Institute.  "He was
    a brave and courageous man, and the people who should apologize are the
    Communists who wanted him to stay quiet about what he had witnessed." 
    Kazan protest

     

    Note that Scott bint- ‘hiding,‘ not to escape an angry mob, though she deserved it (and still does) but to avoid a subpoena – having to answer a straightfoward question, was she involved in an organisation serving Stalin! She calls Kazan a Judas, but she and her traitor comrades in The Party were the Judases, selling out America.

    Same goes for Dalton Trumbo – a lot of the truth about that slimy Red has been censored from the mainstream media but Conservapedia does the job .

    Trumbo was a member of the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA) throughout the 1940s and ’50s. When fellow Communist screenwriter Albert Maltz published a defense of artistic freedom, arguing that literature should not be judged solely on the politics of its author, Trumbo participated in a Party inquisition, browbeating Maltz for his heresy until he publicly recanted.

    oooooooooooooooooooo

    A villainous enemy of the USA

    =====

    According to University of Maryland Professor Art Eckstein, Maltz, who also later was brought before HUAC (and went to jail for refusing to testify), told historian Gerda Lerner “that his appearance before HUAC in 1947 was simply nothing compared to the real and psychologically-destructive trauma of his criticism/self-criticism sessions before the Communist Party in 1946.” Eckstein continues:

    Dalton Trumbo was also part of the savage Communist Party inquisition against the director Robert Rossen in 1949, because of Rossen’s film, “All the King’s Men.” Party Headquarters in New York thought that his film was too much an attack on one-man rule–i.e., Stalin. The confrontation with his Hollywood inquisitors over the nature of his art drove Rossen right out of the CPUSA (“Take the Party and shove it!”).

     

    communism tyranny

     

    Long before the Blacklist, there was Hollywood’s Communist “Redlist.” In The Worker, Trumbo openly boasted that the comrades had prevented the production of Hollywood films based on books banned by Stalin, including classics such as Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon and Victor Kravchenko’s I Chose Freedom.

     

     Ages ago I posted on Diana West’s book, and said I must get round to reading it. Now I’ve had these days of no particular place to go – so I’ve been turning this arguable misfortune to my advantage and catching up on books, that being one among several!

    More Questions Than Answers? – Diana West’s “American Betrayal” 

     american betrayal   Ms. West takes us over some familiar ground – the rampant red subversion in the USA before and after WW2, and reminds us how so many of those Communist swine hid behind the Fifth Amendment when asked if they were or had been members of the CPUSA.

    That plea was as clear as could be. Any decent citizen would have replied with an indignant NEVER!

    Or, if they had previously been guilty of such treasonable allegiance and had since seen the light, they’d not only have owned up but volunteered to help all investigations into the Fifth Column  into whose service that Fifth Amendment had been pressed.

    When patriotic citizens responded to the scum by ostracism or dismissal from jobs they didn’t deserve, what happened?The Reds were portrayed as victims, while in many a(if not every) case, the honourable men and women who lifted the stones off the Communist conspiracy were vilified and persecuted.

     

    ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

     

     

    oooooooooo

    And it goes on to this day. Marxist malignants are honoured, while the memory of heroes like Senator Joe McCarthy are relentlessly trampled.

    oooooooooooo

    Diana-West-e Diana West 

    ooooooooooooooo

    There’s a perfectly good review here  http://pjmedia.com/blog/american-subversion  so I’m not going to write another.
