Editor: We honor a severe adulterer with an American holiday; yet we crucify a true hero who simply tried to tell the Truth, Sen. Joseph Raymond McCarthy.

You say hero? Before you die of apoplexy, because of a lifetime of indoctrination, let me give you a brief description of Sen. McCarthy’s life.

Joseph’s parents were farmers. As Catholics, they gave him a human name only surpassed by Mary in respect. After grade school, he worked for his father. Later, he was successful in the poultry business and as a grocery store manager. At the age of 21, McCarthy returned to high school which he completed in one year. He then attended Marquette University, a Catholic University, receiving his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1935.

He began active law practice and in 1939 was elected to a circuit judgeship, the youngest in Wisconsin history. WWII came; he entered the Marine Corps as a private in 1942 and rose to a captain.

Who’s who listed his service decorations as a Distinguished Flying Cross and an Air Medal with four gold stars. He flew 17 missions in the South Pacific as a tail gunner; he asked to fly with bombers. Later, he was honored for extraordinary achievements as a Marine intelligence officer.

In 1946, McCarthy was elected to the U.S. Senate. When reelected, he received the largest vote for that office in the history of Wisconsin.

He built up a good attendance record at regular Senate sessions and at roll calls. In 1953, he married Jean Kerr, his secretary. They adopted a daughter, Tierney Elizabeth.

They say he drank too much and was caustic in oratory. However, he was really destroyed for exposing the Truth about our un-American State Department (that still exists today) and two fictional heroes, Dwight D. Eisenhower and General George Marshall (all aiding Communism).

Communism and Modernism are twins in the Judas Complex uniting religion, politics and economics. Propaganda (brainwashing) depends heavily on repetition, bold-faced lies, idolatry, and imitation. Dialogue is a Hegelian “dialectical” term suggesting that TRUTH can be refashioned. True servants glorify (focus attention on) Jesus Christ — not themselves.
