On December 2, 1954, the US Senate finally did something they should have done back in 1949, but were too afraid to do. They voted to condemn Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy for “conduct that tends to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute.” The censure was related to McCarthy’s controversial, illegal and unpatriotic witch-hunt of suspected communists in the US government, military and civilian society. Turns out even American Senators will do the right thing eventually.
Apparently, the Senate will only let you go so far, before they’ll finally consider thinking about maybe discussing possibly eventually doing something about it. Share this post, if you think the current Senate has waited more than long enough.
