Joe McCarthy 1950 Im doing my report on Senator Joe McCarthy in 1950 But first Im going to tell a little about his back ground Joe Raymond McCarthy was born in 1908 on a family farm in Outagaminie Country Wisconsin His parents were devout Catholics and encourage their children that they could accomplish anything He went to a country school until grade eight and at the age of nineteen became the manager of a grocery store in Manawa a town thirty miles away He was a popular person and the store was very profitable Then it was suggested by some friends that he go to high school and in one year he crammed a full high school education and he was at the top of the class He enrolled in Marquette University In Milwaukee where he graduated as a lawyer But would later on become a great power in the anti-Communist movement Joe R McCarthy possibly the greatest demagogue in the history of America was also the strongest anti-Communist In the minds of his friends and enemies Joe was an incredible person whose mere presence could be overpowering He was a master at playing the press his name was in the headlines frequently He also perfected the art of playing on peoples fears His portrayal of Communism as the supreme evil allowed his accusations of disloyalty to be incredibly effective Of coarse there were some things about the flamboyant Senator from Wisconsin that limited his effectiveness During his storied career he was never once able to have an accused Red be found guilty He was a heavy drinker and had a soft spot for horse racing and poker games Despite these shortcomings he was able to become a national celebrity From his expensive election campaign to his first speech on Communism to the Army-McCarthy hearings to his sudden death and even to today Senator McCarthy has been the subject of a long-lasting controversy
