    The New Yorker and NBC affiliated news are both Obama attack dog media outlets. McCarthyism? It's a man's opinion about when he was there. What's the big deal? Oh it's a republican!!!! Now I get it. Attack, attack, attack.

    Your grasp of the political "leanings" of the american media can only be described as "delusional" at best.

    These so called "progressive" elites are giving generations of Liberal Democrats a very bad name.

    No. It was a lot more than just "some mans opinion". One definition of it was: "...the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence.." ---The victims of those kinds of "smear tactics" during the Mccarthy era numbered into the thousands. Many people were unjustly arrested. Many more lost their jobs. And all of this with NO credible evidence---just "some guys opinion"....Does anyone think that, that is in anyway justifiable?

    Why are all the socialists getting so upset? Academic leaders have pushing a kind of pseudo-Marxist, corporate socialism for some time, and it's simply common knowledge. You think they'd be proud, and even more boastful of their complete takeover of secondary education.
    Maybe Cruz didn't sound appreciative enough for the whiny little Bolshevik snobs. Perhaps he could say it while wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt next time.

    All those hard core right wing rednecks out and tell us that the socialists have controlled colleges and studen't minds for a long long time and it's "common knowledge". If this is true how does that explain there being so many brain dead rednecks? Oh wait. How silly of me. They didn't go to college because they just knew edjumacation don meks u smert. Neve rmind. Carry on.

    @Seamus I guess that would be why my two daughters with Masters from UCLA and my business partners two daughters with Masters from Harvard would all four have jobs paying more than 100K a year and I'm told one of them is making 200K right at age 30. Not too bad for "liberal arts" girls. But hey, we need tire busters.

    @jessejaymes

    If this is true (which I doubt, because you yourself don't have the vocabulary or critical thinking skills of someone old enough to have children), it is the exception instead of the rule.

    @Seamus LOLOLOL you are probably not my first choice as someone to assess the critical thinking skills of others. Hehehe. That was a good one.

    And where the heck has Michael Mayday been?

    Did I miss his Bon Voyage?

    My apologies if I have. Michael deserves more than the "adios" that Politix didn't extend to the lone conservative/libertarian writer on this site.

    Did you all fire him or did he leave on his own?

    Funny thing about this one is that I don't remember a big deal being made over Democrats comparing Republicans to Nazis in September 2012, even though that's obviously an unconscionable comparison. Why is it that it's only when conservatives or Republicans make comparisons or make accusations does everyone's panties suddenly get in a bunch? So, my response to this one is--I can care less that Cruz called Harvard Profs communists. Let them defend themselves--I have much more important things to worry about.

    Joseph McCarthy was as big of a scumbag as this country has ever produced. By the time this worthless alcoholic died he had be completely and totally discredited. It is no surprise that after his death he was replaced by Democrat William Proxmire, who called the late McCarthy "a disgrace to Wisconsin, to the Senate and to America".

    LOL ... that the problem with comparing Cruz to McCarthy ... they actually welcome the comparison, that really isn't an insult to them!

    Wondering how many more decades it will take the GOP to realize that this is the 21st century and that Communists laid down on a death bed (for the most part) 30 years ago. I know it took the GOP until 1950's to realize it was the 20th century, so, with that guideline, it will be 2050 before the GOP "wakes" up.....if they still exist!

    Traditional Leninism may have collapsed (except in a few particularly awful third-world hellholes, like Cuba and North Korea), but socialism is still alive, and sucking the blood out of the Western powers.

    And for all intents and purposes, communism and "social democracy" are interchangeable. But while communism is akin to be murdered, socialism is more like committing suicide.

    No one expects you and the anachist occupy people to have any gratitude for the blessings of being American. America's fatal flaw was that we failed to raise our kids to appreciate our Country. We all own the shame and disgrace of letting them down.

    Well, you see. That's the problem with Republicans---They are always living in the past. Sometimes the far distant past.

    Why didn't you provide a "I don't know, I did not attend Harvard then, or at any time since" category? Every university has its share of radicals of one extreme of the spectrum or the other. Usually, however, they are way more abundant from the left side of the spectrum, in my own personal experience and after discussions with many other college graduates, including individuals with graduate degrees like Master's and Doctorates. The majority of the staff tend to hire others who think like them. That's why Universities like students to go for their Master's, Doctorates, etc. at Universities other than where they got their Bachelor's- so they won't become TOO indoctrinated, theoretically, in their Alma Matter's groupthink.

    Most professors are "wannabe Communists". They live in a sheltered world surrounded by impressionable kids, and they get an ego-complex and think they are so intelligent and revolutionary, but if they were actually around real communists, they'd crap their pants and call for their mommies. They've never lived in places like Russia, eastern Europe, or Nicaragua.

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck....Oh, hell, these guys are nothing less than socialists. They are idealogical at best. They have the right to be that way. And we have the right to identify them.

    When people use terms like Communist, Socialist and Nazi as part of their free speech then they should be asked to define the words then when they cannot properly define the words we get to beat them until they are dead for being stupid. That's a right the first amendment should have extended, Fox News wouldn't last 2 commercial breaks, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and ALL Teabaggers wouldn't speak another word in their lifetime.

    Dont forget about Chris Hayes, Chris Mathews, Lawreence O' Donnell, Rv. achel Madcow, and Alvin Sharpton......and all the libtards who follow them like the sheeple they are.....

    @Jack-Black Maybe Sharpton but the rest of those people have an understanding of words and know what they mean before they use them. This is not about difference of opinion, you can have a different opinion and not be stupid about it like the talking heads on the Faux conservative networks. Between all the people I mentioned you couldn't get the collective group to be able to remember to wipe their own bottoms and tie their own shoes.

    i would submit that supporting communist ideology and theory means you are a communist. does it matter than one or more of the professors do not actually carry Communist Party ID cards?.. i know a couple of people with liberal views and a couple with conservative views that are not registered to vote, yet they choose to identify themselves with those titles.

    What Republicans call"Democracy" is really Plutocracy, Theocracy.
    What they call "Socialist" is actually intellectual.
    No where else is intelligence and forward thinking a curse than it is in the United States.
    Cruz needs to take the stick out of his donkey!

    You posted,"What they call "Socialist" is actually intellectual. No where else is intelligence and forward thinking a curse than it is in the United States..."
    Then your definition of intelligence is being a socialist or Communist.
    Intelligence, socialism,communism, what we have here is description of an oxymoron.

    Communist, Marxist, Socialist...Government takes over private business, seizes assets from the wealthy, and controls the media...Hmmm, the only difference between Communists and Democrats is the commie's build up their military and guard their borders.

    @PoliticsMary we need several more choices in the poll... and maybe a better photo of this clown. the one you used makes it look like he probably drools on his shirt, sprays spit when he talks and talks with his mouth full.
