This was one of the major cover-ups of the political campaign, and the cover-up continues.
Whitewashing A Communist
The Wolffe book describes Davis as a "leading black activist" and "strong advocate for racial justice" whose "political writings" on "civil rights and labor issues" made him "the target of a McCarthyite denunciation" by the House Committee on Un-American Activities Committee.
Notice the use of the term "McCarthyite" being associated with a House committee. McCarthy, of course, was a senator. Wolffe uses the term "McCarthyite" to make the point, which is false, that Davis was not in any sense a communist or fellow-traveler. Wolffe understands that many people have been conditioned by academia to recoil at the thought of anything associated with McCarthy-ism.
Based on what we have seen at some of the town hall meetings, there are some Americans who don't want to see the U.S. go down the Marxist road. This is the time for the media to tell the truth about Obama and his agenda.
