Your Views: Liberals have long distorted the truth
The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming! Keep your children off the streets and remove them from the public schools, where they're brainwashed by pinko union-loving teachers.
But most important, arm yourselves and check under your beds every day. You never know where a sneaky liberal might be hiding!
Kudos to The Gazette for publishing the letter (D.R. Schaller, Sept. 13), reminding us how liberals distorted the truth even as far back as the 1950s, when they dismissed Sen. McCarthy's crusade to rid our government of communists as “witch hunts.” As the writer of the letter states, “…in the 1950s the government did have many communist infiltrators and spies.” For sure some liberal is going to write to The Gazette—pulling one of those left-wing tactics, just as they did with McCarthy in the '50s when he waved a piece of paper in the air on which he listed the names of communists working in the State Department—demanding proof.
But the way to put such liberals in their place is to dismiss such demands as attempts to destroy the capitalistic system. That's what Sen. Joe did, and it worked (for a while). Fortunately, there are heroic truth-tellers out there like the people at Fox News—Rush (one of the best) O'Reilly, Palin, Bachmann and Coulter, who are always vigilant. Their objective, unbiased perspectives are more than a match for the liberals who revel in the distortions they proclaim. God bless America!
