Hoover vs McGovern
A long and detailed article
about the long dispute between FBI head Hoover and Comrade McGovern.
Lots of juicy stuff for partisans, and the article is written from a modern Satanic viewpoint; but it's easy enough to filter out the venom.
It reduces to simple and REAL politics. Unlike today's Robust Debates that bid up the cost and lethality of a government activity in ONE DIRECTION, there was an actual TWO-SIDED debate during the lifetimes of Hoover and McGovern.
The two sides were simple and firmly defined. McGovern was a Communist and Hoover was an anti-Communist. McGovern did everything he could to interfere with Hoover's anti-Commie activity. Hoover did everything he could to interfere with McGovern's Commie activity.
Real opposition, real debate. American Commies were right about Vietnam and wrong about most other things. They started the ball rolling toward Satan's current victory, though most of them (like McGovern) were strongly traditional and strongly moral people in private life. Hoover was wrong about Vietnam and right about most other stuff, though he was apparently non-traditional in his private life.
Even in public both men were more complicated than their sides, and more complicated than modern partisans (including me!) would prefer. McGovern favored small business, which put him at odds with other Commies. Hoover strongly favored racial equality, which put him at odds with government moves like the justified internment of Japs. Hoover acted against Comrade MLK, not
because he thought racial equality was bad, but because Comrade MLK and his associates were Commies who were using the racial equality movement for their own anti-American purposes.
