Мне важно, что на самом деле. А на самом деле в случае войны США - СССР компартия США вне всякого сомнения приняла бы сторону СССР. А это значит, репрессии против неё были обоснованы. Под "открытым вопросом" я понимаю не это, а то, что некоторые из подвергшихся преследованиям не имели отношения к компартии и не сочувствовали ей
А на самом деле маккартизм - это примерно это вот:
When they take us at our own word they make awful liars out of us.
Fortunately, ever-increasing numbers of citizens are learning the truth — that the proponents are, by their own words "awful liars" and protect themselves in the poisoned cities by purchasing unpoisoned bottled water.
I have stated repeatedly — and I reiterate — that anyone who has anything to do for fluoridation, is displaying a treacherous attitude for one of four reasons — either because he is uninformed, misinformed, dishonest, or subversive. Unquestionably, practically everything in this Nation is infiltrated by Communists, subversives, and their dupes or tools.
Seventeen million Americans, more or less, at the mercy of Soviet Communists. Invasion and sabotage, by remote control, through the water mains. What could be more clever or effective ? Our enemies take over — city by city.
I know that fluoridation is a Communist scheme — frankly, the master plan — but I cannot prove it, for those who have informed me, cannot testify — they would be liquidated, if they did. I believe you are in a position to prove it, however, by having Princess Ileana and others testify under oath.
The catalyzing of water fluoridation is being successful and millions of American are being poisoned. I also believe that a Federal law should be quickly passed to prohibit this scheme, in order to avert further diseasing and perhaps killings of our innocent and protesting citizens — and to prevent the complete loss of faith in this administration which so many are experiencing.
"While a member of the Communist Party, I attended Communist training schools in New York and Wisconsin ... and we were trained in the revolutionary overthrow of the U.S. Government. "... We discussed quite thoroughly the fluoridation of water supplies and how we were using it in Russia as a tranquilizer in the prison camps. The leaders of our school felt that if it could be induced into the American water supply, it would bring about a spirit of lethargy in the nation, where it could keep the general public docile during a steady encroachment of Communism.
We also discussed the fact that keeping a store of deadly fluoride near the water reservoir would be advantageous during the time of the revolution, as it would give us opportunity to dump this poison into the water supply and either kill off the populace or threaten them with liquidation, so that they would surrender to obtain fresh water.
The fear for America under this iron rule is troubling me and millions of others, so am asking this committee that when the fluoride question is settled, regardless of how you may decide on it that the whole situation be immediately turned over to the un-American activities congressional committees for further study, because fluoride has been used for the destruction of much of the public of Europe, and perhaps is as little known to the Europeans as it is to most Americans.
Там еще много такого. Если что - это не черновики сценариев к доктору Стренджлаву, а выдержки из протоколов слушаний в комиссии конгресса по торговле по вопросу о фторировании воды:
Fluoridation of water. Hearings before the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, Eighty-third Congress, second session, on H. R. 2341. A bill to protect the public health from the dangers of fluorination of water. May 25, 26, 27, 1954 (1954)
