The New McCarthyism | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

But the Soviet Union has gone out of business. The word "communist" doesn't carry the same psychological impact it used to, so the war hawk smear squad has come up with a new one, "Anti-Semite." Like "Communist", "Anti-Semite" is used to ruin the lives of people who have not actually done anything wrong other than to challenge the war profiteers. It is a new word for an old trick, and I am amazed that they are still playing the same old game, but I guess the FBI can always find some dumb-assed idiot to fall for it and do their dirty work of wrecking a career for them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was looking in on the comments posted after my letter was published in the Star-Advertiser. Mostly I was checking to see if a follow-up by myself that included links to support the arguments being made was allowed by the moderator (it wasn't). But I could not help but notice that Israel's defenders, the "Megaphonies" had piled into the discussion and unable to come up with substantive arguments to support Israel's right to commit murder in international waters had fallen back on the old standard of screaming "Nazi" and "Anti-Semite."

So I am reposting this story about how "Anti-Semite" is just a repeat of "communist" used to silence critics of government policy in times past and I ask you repost this everywhere you see Israel's minions screaming about Nazis and anti-Semites.
