We're all familiar with the Senator Joseph McCarthy and how he created hysteria of accusing people of being a communist during the 1950's. He ruined lives and created unjust suspicions. Unfortunately this phenomenon is once again sweeping our nation but with a slightly different twist.

    Our leaders of our country are allowing our civil liberties to be taken away. The more liberal you, the more likely you are to be accused of being sympathetic to terrorists.  If you want to find out more about this new McCarthyism sweeping our nation then check out this site.  Its The Progressive, a liberal magazine that has done a lot of articles on the New McCarthyism.
