Please provide us with the names of these "many innocent Americans" of Joe "McCarthy's witch hunts".

WHAB
Dorothy Kenyon. " Although the Senate subcommittee cleared the charges against her on July 17, McCarthy's accusations ended Kenyon's career in public service

Esther and Steven Brunauer

Phillip C Jessup

Haldore Hanson,
Gustavo Duran,
Owen Lattimore,
Harlow Shapley,
Frederick L. Schuman,
John S. Service
And thats just from the Tyding Committe.
All cleared all had their lives, their careers ruined. There were many others that he accused that had their lives ruined by his accusations. But he never proved any of it.

Tell ya what since we are demanding proof, how about providing as list of communist spies that McCarthy exposed in his "perfectly normal" paranoid and bullying accusations?

in 1996 USSR archives were released confirming much of what McCarthy had tried to reveal.

"But McCarthy’s most knowledgeable critics have never denied Soviet espionage. Rather, they always claimed (and still do) that by the time McCarthy burst onto the anticommunist public scene in 1950, the purge of Soviet agents and identified Communists at State and other government bureaus was complete. All McCarthy could do, and did, they claim, in order to make a name for himself was smear and ruin the reputation of scads of innocent persons. This charge, in 2016, remains the conventional wisdom regarding McCarthy."

The objective standard. yet. what an ironic name.
