marty D McCarthyism ... were you there? (116* d) RE: McCarthyism ... were you there? 02 Sep 01


I had that period summed up very nicely for me by one of my teachers. he seemed to cut through an awful lot of crap regarding Government policies, non-aggression treaties, hidden agendas and such. He said that if you ACTUALLY believed what the Constitution said about equality and were willing to say it publicly, your friends had BETTER be Communists, because to many in the mainstream you were just a 'nigger lover'. Can't even imagine what homosexuals or Jews without financial clout must have gone through.

A good movie about Jewish writers surviving during this period is 'The Front'. I think it's a Woody Allen film and it's sort of a comedy, but not THAT funny.
