Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - July 25, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George be. Sokolsky Joe Mccarthy a ghost the Magazine business must be suffering from the recession or something because Here comes a Magazine which advertises a a revealing explosive document. Sen. Joe Mccarthy a the truth behind his sensational Rise his mysterious two items Down in the table of contents. I find another piece entitled a the smell of love you la find , can be the latter article was written by a couple of doctors the former by a usual Magazine writer. I read the Mccarthy article and do not find anything new in it except the impressionistic drawing of Joe s head which makes him look like a murderer on the scaffold that must be the sensation. As Joe Only lived one life and the whole of it has been fairly Well explored it is doubtful whether much that is new can be added to it. Joe had his Day and his Vogue and has passed away and each year those who still regard themselves As his friends attend a mass for his soul. Such a mass is held in several cities and is Well attended but will naturally be decreasing As the years pass. I know Joe Mccarthy intimately from the Start of his at communist career he became interested in the subject of communist infiltration in government and he devoted himself to the subject. One May have liked or disliked Mccarthy liked or disliked his methods liked or disliked his associates but it is impossible to ignore the historic consequences of communist infiltrations into governments throughout tile world. This Joe did not invent. We Are facing just this problem in Syria and in Iraq where communists in the Palace for Call them leftists if you will assassinated the King of Iraq. Tim writer of the Magazine article asserts that Mccarthy s Start in this Field a was largely he does not know this to be True been use he had no personal relationship to the senator at that or Liny other time. Furthermore if he knew anything about the anti communist movement in the United states he would know that Little about it Good or bad. Was accidental. As much planning and thinking went into one Side As into the other and each Side was infiltrated by the other. Tile anti communists Iii the 19f>0�?Ts were an austere devoted group of men and women who made enormous personal sacrifices for what they believed to be a cause. There were among them some Crooks fakers and screwball As there Are in every movement but the hard Core of leadership was a sincere group most of them former communists some always anti communist who were ready to die for their cause. That they were fanatical there can be no question. Just As the communists were engaged in a conspiracy so the anti communists were always suspicious of others and each other because so often they found themselves either betrayed or deserted. Joe Mccarthy was deliberately brought into this movement bemused it was recognized that he would fight to a finish. Other senators started but lost interest As other problems of traded themselves. Dick Nixon at one stage looked like Lochinvar but it was found Early in his career that while he was a Man of sincerity he was also an ambitious politician and tended to Compromise. Mccarthy was uncompromising and fanatical. The author of this Magazine article that resurrects Mccarthy s ghost implied that Joe drank himself to death. To say that Joe did not drink would be to deny that he was Irish. To say that Joe drank himself to death is untrue. He was discouraged he regarded himself As betrayed. He particularly Felt that he was betrayed by vice president Nixon whom he had a lavs trusted. He talked about going into business and getting out of politics. He was absorbed in his family life. Ile also suffered extraordinary pain because of his herniated diaphragm once i gave a Little dinner for Mccarthy his pains came on his suffering was unbelievable and that night he had to be taken to the Hospital. It was his herniated diaphragm and he was operated on for if. Joe Mccarthy is dead and can neither add to nor detract from the course of events. Whether Resur-1 reefing his ghost makes circulation i doubt very much. An article on what makes Zsa Zsa tick might be better business. Copyright. Kine features Syndicate inc. J vol. 80, no. 171 it.
