George Clooney At An Awards Ceremony In Paris Warned; “There Is A Shadow Of McCarthyism Looming Over His Homeland.”


“The Closer The Investigations And The Media Get To “Trump Ties With Russia,” The More Donald Trump Insist That This Is A Witch Hunt By Democrats And Fake News Carried By The Media.”

[WAPO] “A couple of days before a host of celebrities spoke out against President Trump at the Oscars, Hollywood icon George Clooney was feted at an awards ceremony in Paris. There he warned of the shadow of McCarthyism looming over his homeland.


“We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must not walk in fear of one another. We must not be driven by fear into an age of unreason,” said Clooney. He signed off with the famous tagline of late American journalist Edward R. Murrow: “Good night, and good luck.”


Murrow, of course, made his name in opposition to the anti-communist witch hunts launched by Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) in the 1950s. Liberal cognoscenti see the specter of McCarthy again haunting the country as Trump deems the mainstream media the “enemy” and scapegoats whole communities as potential terror threats.


But some Republicans are invoking McCarthy, too. They see the menace of Beltway conspiracies and government overreach in Democratic calls for an investigation into Trump’s reported links to Russia. In early January, Trump himself said that speculation into his Russian connections was part of “a political witch hunt.”





House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, a Republican lawmaker from California, echoed what seems like the administration’s line over the weekend. “This is almost like McCarthyism revisited,” said Nunes to reporters in California when asked about the prospect of appointing a special prosecutor to oversee an investigation. “We’re going to go on a witch hunt against innocent Americans?”


On Monday, Nunes once more attempted to shift the focus away from the White House. “There’s been major crimes committed,” said Nunes, referring to leaks from the intelligence community that spurred the Russia allegations. “What I’m concerned about is no one is focusing on major leaks that have occurred here … We can’t run a government like this. A government can’t function with massive leaks at the highest level.”
