What does a 'old fat cigar smoking rich guy' have to with 'Race and Economics.'?

This Stefan Molyneux part prevented me to watch anything. But in your own words is Walter E. Williams much different from Thomas Sowell. If so, by your own words.

Please.

Molyneux cases instantaneous vomiting reaction; too much stupidity in one time is overwhelming. :(

Law 4: Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.


Too much, is too much.

Took 'bout one microsecond to watch. :puke:

I assume that you are trolling me. :twisted:

The word is now reciprocality. In good time, on the right situation, when the time is ripe.

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

No not trolling, just trying to show you that everything isn't as the Elite say.

Senator Joe McCarthy was a lout, generally speaking. But he was on the right side of history and, in a broad sense, of morality as well. If, in some sort of parallel-universe exercise, the same number of (now proven) Soviet-Communist spies, collaborators, sympathizers, and the like were somehow switched to Nazis, and McCarthy went after them with the same vehemence as he went after Reds, Joe McCarthy might well have universities and foundations named after him today. Just imagine if a ring of Nazi party members were found to be working in Hollywood, never mind the State Department, taking money from Berlin to advance the Nazi cause. Does anyone really think “McCarthyism” would still be denounced as an unmitigated evil, often put at the front of the parade of horribles alongside Hitlerism and Stalinism? Now, I’m sure many people are rolling their eyes at this point. “It’s not the same thing!” say those who believe that the lost jobs of a few Hollywood writers and the loyalty oaths reluctantly offered by some unjustly accused union officials are the American equivalent of concentration camps. Maybe, maybe not. The argument over which was worse, Communism or Nazism, will never be settled. Nor should we expect it to be. But even if you firmly believe that Nazism was more evil than Communism, as even Robert Conquest does, you must concede that Communism was evil enough. If the sight of an American Communist screenwriter being forced to take the Fifth Amendment before Congress and have his “career ruined” still fills you with blinding rage, it’s indeed curious why the forced slaughter of millions by Stalin seems like a trivial event to you. After all, there were plenty of men and women invoking their “rights” as their heels left lines in the dirt on the way to the gulag. Needless to say, their careers were ruined too. And if the American Communists had had their way, much the same thing would have happened here as well. But, yeah, Roy Cohn’s the devil. Regardless, wherever you come down on McCarthyism, Communism, and the rest is a matter of opinion. What is a matter of fact — unmitigated, irrefutable, undeniable fact — is that there were hundreds of Communists working for Moscow, directly or indirectly, in the United States during the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. The Rosenbergs were guilty and got what they deserved. Alger Hiss too. Victor Perlo, Judith Coplon, Morton Sobell, William Perl, Alfred Sarant, Joel Barr, and Harry Gold were all either pawns or lackeys of a foreign and evil foe. We know the Hollywood Ten were all Communists, but what else they were we can’t know for sure, because they believed taking the Fifth was more important than protecting the country (and if you think it’s unfair to cavalierly call people who devotedly followed the Moscow line for all their adult lives “Communists,” I sure hope you don’t ever call, say, President Bush a “fascist” on the basis of no evidence at all). The American Communist Party (CP-USA) was in fact a Soviet franchise. In other words, you are free to describe McCarthyism as a witchhunt if and only if you are willing to concede that actual witches existed in our midst. The evidence — from declassified Venona transcripts, Soviet archives, memoirs, etc. — is still mounting, but what we have so far is plenty in itself.

As for your "Took 'bout one microsecond to watch. :puke:", sez a lot about your open mind.

There is no doubt that the communists in America was controlled from Moscow.

McChartyism was just useless diversion, one dimension of red scare after the WWII.

But when Charlie Chaplin had to evacuate to UK for liberty, it is quite definite evidence that McCarthy went far too far in his witch hunt.

So it went.
