Did somebody say “witch hunt“?
Accusing members of Congress of communism, socialism, and un-American activities—yeah, that pretty much defines a McCarthyite witch hunt.
My neighbors will dismiss South Dakota natives Tom Daschle, Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, Matt Varilek, and Corinna Robinson for spending too much time out of the state. They’ll call me a carpetbagger for wanting to get involved in local politics. But they’ll put the spotlight on a New Zealander to come tell them that their own American politicians aren’t really American.
Someone has clearly cast a spell over my neighbors… and the spell-caster ain’t Karl Marx.
Bonus: Loudon peddles the notion that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a boost for Communism and part of their attack.
