But what I've said far more often and loudly is how the left is engaging in a modern form of McCarthyism. 

And here we are.

But the "modern McCarthyism" charge is a dog that won't hunt.

McCarthy was an alcoholic politician of limited intelligence trying to ride the Red Scare wave to career advancement. He engaged in repeated attempts to publicly intimidate and humiliate low level public servants for his own self-aggrandizement. He was finally put in his place when a well respected barrister challenged him with, "Have, at long last, no shame?".

Show us where Mueller has done anything but a painstaking, meticulous, and fair minded gathering of evidence, using established and effective investigative methods.

McCarthy, with Dick Nixon cheering him on,  destroyed careers of people who had done nothing wrong but stand up for their civil right to hold an alternate political opinion.

Mueller has indicted Manafort, Gates, Flynn, etc. because they are criminals and quite possibly traitors.

You are trying to swap McCarthy for Mueller.

And you're also taking far too many shortcuts with the Story of McCarthy.

McCarthyism isn't a guy. 

"McCarthyism" started when President Truman instituted an executive order requiring a loyalty test for all federal employees in 1947.  It called for dismissal of anybody in the government if there were "reasonable grounds" for belief that that person is disloyal to the United State government.

What constitutes "reasonable grounds?"  Isn't that a bit in the eye of the beholder? 

McCarthyism is a state of mind.  Or more appropriately ... it's hysteria.  We call it "The Red Scare."  Specifically McCarthyism is the Second Red Scare.  The idea that people in government were somehow in cahoots and working with the Soviet government.

Who is out there fear mongering about the Soviets today Ulysses?  (Hint: It's not Mueller.)

And did you even read the article?

Shit.  The jig is up.

I love this response tho.  In a thread where you're casting aspersions on the idea that a hysterical form of McCarthyism has taken root in the American left ... you suggest someone who disagrees with you is a Russian plant.

And you didn't even throw in a smiley emoji.

You're killin me man.

Well, excuse me for interrupting but, I don't think pot can lead to a distortion of views anymore than gas fumes from fueling up your vehicle, or the fumes of burnt toast.
