History\’s Wingnuts – Sen. Joe McCarthy in Chicago – March 17, 1954 | Newstalgia

“Joe McCarthy probably represented one of the darker periods in American history – one based on fear and hysteria and paranoia. A period where innuendo carried weight and facts were so hazy and misquoted that shreds of truth were difficult, if not impossible to find – and it was McCarthy who held court during this reign of terror – one which destroyed and mutilated countless innocent lives. And all because the new-found power was intoxicating and McCarthy luxuriated in it.”  DANGER -House Rep D. Issa is on this same road. We must all keep a close eye that the same situation does not come up again.
