'Birtherism' and anti-communism ~ By Joseph Farah

Back in the 1950s, the Communist Party USA was on the ropes.

Most Americans understood the threat posed by a totalitarian, foreign-directed organization hell-bent on destroying their way of life from within.

But then the Communists got a brilliant idea. They launched a campaign against anti-communism.

Anyone who spoke out against the party was derided as a "red-baiter." They "saw Communists under every bed." They were delusional.

Fellow travelers and useful idiots were recruited into the campaign against anti-communism. Soon, it became less popular and less "cool" to be an anti-communist than to be a card-carrying member of Josef Stalin's subversive operation "inside the belly of the beast."

Why am I reliving this history?

Because the very same kind of drill is being run today against another righteous American cause – the deep and visceral concerns that Barack Obama has never been held to prove his constitutional eligibility for the highest office in the land.
