Was Joe Mccarthy's witch hunt and the blacklist related to the wars in Korea and Viet Nam?

Did lies about leftists get your government to wage war back then?
McCarthy was a successful commie hunter. All of it legit. It was the leftist maggots you admire that created the conspiracy theory about him.

Damn dude, people can't remember what happened last week, you want to ask them about the communist witch hunts in the 50's?

I assume this is what you think, but you chose to frame it as a question?
@SumKindaMunster whatever. Lies and history and repetition and...Whatever, forget that!

Yep all three Democratic Presidents - Truman / JFK and LBJ - got those wars running and kept the men there till the end.
Viet Nam is a real stretch historically.
@MistyCee maybe it's not related to the anti communism campaign of the same yesrs, but the US entered the Viet Nam war to fight communism. Stretch from the war on communism All the way to the war against communism if you can make any connections at all.
@Roundandroundwego Then they're obviously related.

I'm not going to touch the lies against leftists bit, but Korea, Viet Nam, and the McCarthy hearings were "related" as were a whole lot of other things prior to the fall of the Soviet Union.
