I'm sure that many of the folks on the left, will quickly denounce this as a modern version of McCarthyism which is fine. Most Americans don't know, and neither the media or the Democratic Party is in any hurry to tell them, Joe McCarthy was much closer to the truth than anyone guessed.. Much closer.
In 1995 an entire series of National Security Agency intercepts were declassified. Known as the Verona Papers roughly 2,900 documents, (a deliberately meaningless code phrase) The documents were were radio messages from the top KGB agents in Washington and New York to their superiors in Moscow from sometime in 1943 into 1948.
From the Claremont Instute
But by far the greatest villain among Red-hunting politicians was, of course, Wisconsin's Republican senator Joseph McCarthy, who raised the issue of Communists in government in February 1950 and rode it triumphantly for four-and-a-half-years, acquiring an immense popular following, until the Senate itself voted to "censure" him in December 1954. He died, of liver failure induced by alcoholism, in May 1957, at the age of 48. By the 1960s the CPUSA, reduced to a few thousand members, had been almost wholly superseded by the New Left, and barely survived to see the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
That was the story of American Communism and its foes, as successfully propagated by the nation's dominant liberals, and it remained, as we have noted, the conventional wisdom for forty years. Indeed, it is in some ways the conventional wisdom even today, for younger generations (including many conservatives) have never heard any other version of the facts.
The coded transcripts took until 1980 to completely decipher.. and another 15 years before the government decided they could quietly be made public.. You can find out more about the Verona Papers here, here and here
Robert Lamshire, a FBI agent involved with the project had this to say
Again from the Claremont Institute
A second new source of information on the American Communist Party was the archives in Moscow of the defunct Soviet Union, which began to be partially accessible to American investigators in the early 1990s, during the Yeltsin years.
The Venona papers, together with these archives, made it absolutely clear that the American Communist Party was from its beginning the willing agent of Soviet intelligence, obedient to its orders, financed by its contributions, and serving not only as a propaganda organ for Soviet policies but as a generous source for the recruitment of agents who would thereupon influence American policy and gladly commit espionage as well. It is now plain that by 1945 every important branch of the American government, from the White House itself to the State Department, the Defense Department, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department, the Office of Strategic Services (predecessor to the CIA), and the Office of War Information, to name only a few, was infested with Communists busily doing the work of the Soviet Union

Want More?? You'll find them hereIt didn't stop, in fact , I believe Curtis Bowers comments in the video are completely correct
Back during the 1960s Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev vowed to bury us, from within. Over time we've
learned that a number of the Vietnam era Anti War Protest Organization had Soviet money backing them.
This from an article written by .Ion Mihai Pacepa (he also talks about John Kerry)
As a spy chief and a general in the former Soviet satellite of Romania, I produced the very same vitriol Kerry repeated to the U.S. Congress almost word for word and planted it in leftist movements throughout Europe. KGB chairman Yuri Andropov managed our anti-Vietnam War operation. He often bragged about having damaged the U.S. foreign-policy consensus, poisoned domestic debate in the U.S., and built a credibility gap between America and European public opinion through our disinformation operations. Vietnam was, he once told me, "our most significant success."
They Goggling the founders of Vietnam Veterans Against the War-- then do a little back ground on those three and see what you get..
Communist infiltrators and spies have been with us since the 1920s Even the American Civil Liberties Union was started as a communist front.. They decided to drop their ties with communism and the Soviets in 1948 when Joe McCarthy started looking closely.. You can read about that here It shouldn't come as much come as much of a surprise to find that the issues promoted by the Communists and the issues that find their way into the Democratic Party's rhetoric are often very similar..
Today those issues include Freedom From Religion, Automatic Citizenship for Illegals, The Promotion of Homosexuality by the Government and more control over education while reducing parental influence
