The California Assembly has passed a bill that will prevent the firing of government employees who are communists. The state Senate will now review the bill. My comment posted beneath the story:
I’d be curious to know when the last time this law was used, if ever. The “Red Scare” is a red herring, the U.S. Government was thoroughly infiltrated with Communists and fellow travelers even before World War II. Read Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies by M. Stanton Evans or Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government by Evans and Herbert Romerstein.Many of my university professors were socialists or communists (virtually all leftists), bitter America-haters who lied about the Soviet terror famine in Ukraine, who lied that Hitler was a Christian and that’s what led to the Holocaust, who compared murderous communist revolutionaries to the founding fathers. I see this bill as symbolic because there is currently no barrier to communists at every level of the California bureaucracy. It is emblematic of how far this state has fallen, it can’t even recognize the most destructive, bloodthirsty ideology of modern times as such.
