"and their fellow travelers."

Upon hearing the name of Joe McCarthy, a columnist for a major American newspaper said to me, "Shhh. Saying something nice about Joe McCarthy can get you in a LOT of trouble." Are you kidding me? He died in 1957!

For younger readers, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R-WI) accused the American government, in particular the State Department, of hiring American communists and Soviet spies. American media at that time vilified and demonized McCarthy. The guy didn't realize the immense forces working against him.

"For my mother Josephine Stanton Evans who knew it all along and for Tierney McCarthy wherever she may be." With those words, M. Stanton Evans dedicated his immense work, "Blacklisted by History", or as Evans puts it, "The untold story of Senator Joe McCarthy and his fight against America's enemies". It's a detailed account of America's pre and post-World War Two years that that names names, something that American media quashed during the McCarthy era.

The influence of Moscow's penetration of our government continues to this day. In 2010 Russian spies were exchanged for an alleged American spy and American media immediately dumped the story. Nobody calls them communists anymore. They're now identified as the Left, Socialists or liberals.

Have you ever driven on a four lane road when all the traffic is in the right lane, leaving the left lane open? Swinging into the left lane, you have an open road before you. Suddenly a car pulls out from the left lane in front of you, slows down, and blocks your progress. I compare the workings of American leftists, liberals and communists to that car.

The interests of the communists in this country are not for we the people but for their international interests and their own pocketbooks. It's quite OK for their "fellow travelers" to financially benefit from government. It's not OK for the rest of us to benefit financially from free enterprise.

Of particular interest to the Polish community is Evans' documentation of the sellout of the Polish government-in-exile during WWII by our own President Roosevelt. It also includes the purloining of reports of Polish-American US Army officers who, as German POWs, witnessed the aftermath of the Katyn Forest massacre of Polish officers/Intellectuals. Their reports, that have since disappeared from our National Archives, directly blamed the Soviets (read Russians).

Unlike Joe McCarthy, it appears Americans are beginning to recognize those forces and their subsequent policies at work against us. Those policies are emanating from our own White House, aided and abetted by their fellow travelers.

It's my fervent hope that the wave I'm beginning to see from right-thinking Americans is able to overcome the immensely powerful forces of propaganda at work against us from within and without our shores.

McCarthy was a Republican, not a Democrat, by the time he ran for the Senate.

Thank you. Web blog corrected to reflect that.

Wouldn't it be great that we not only brag about our canteen group, but also our membership. Maybe we could be proud of the fact that Post 58 is the home of National President Kathy Boll and State President Genny Torrero and that we also have two heritage award winners, our own Michael Polichuk and Kathy Boll
