Pride & Prejudiced
A new low in the crusade against “New McCarthyism,” the shape-shifting menace that means whatever you want it to mean. Now even Nazis are whining about it!
From Stormfront, home of “White Pride World Wide” comes a racist loser linking to a New York Post article, a standard issue “I’m offended that black person called me/we/them racist” story, enlivened with the stirring “New McCarthyism” claim.
Why “New?” Because Irony! The clowns rolling out the “New McCarthyism” want to spruce up your granddad’s tired old McCarthyism in order to attack the Left, or what they pretend to see as the Left, by accusing them of using the old red baiters toolkit. Their examples are usually come from toothless halfwits as opposed to Senate Committee Chairmen, but we must not waver in the fight.
Let’s savor the Post’s Have You No Decency Of Today:
It’s the new McCarthyism. Just as Sen. McCarthy, in the early 1950s, suspected a communist in every flowerpot, he’d cause lasting defensive wounds in all his targets, regardless of his accuracy. Not that he got it all wrong. But he was reckless, indiscriminate, thus within three years, he was dismissed as a political arsonist.” [More like five years, but upbeat System Working tales can’t pause for detail]
Exciting to see that the term has been so degraded that Klan and Nazi types feel free to adopt it.
