Conservative activist David Horowitz insisted in an interview with Newsmax yesterday that Hillary Clinton has done worse things than Sen. Joe McCarthy, because while McCarthy was, in his view, unfairly maligned for his infamous communist hunts, Clinton has had the nerve to criticize conservatives and Donald Trump.
Clinton’s actions, he said, have “been worse than anything Joe McCarthy ever did.”
McCarthy, he said, was right about “99 percent of the people he brought before his committees” but has been portrayed poorly because “the left writes the history books in America.”
“But look at what Hillary has done,” he said. “She’s the originator of the ‘vast right-wing conspiracy.’ Every word out of her mouth is accusing Trump and Republicans of recruiting for ISIS, of being traitors. For crying out tears, these progressives, these Democrats think they’re holier than thou, they think that they stand for equality and tolerance. No they don’t, they stand for bigotry and the oppression of blacks in the inner cities.”
