'have You No Decency, Sir?'

Sen. Joe McCarthy opened up hearings against the US Army in 1954, describing them as soft on communism. Sound familiar? Instead of rooting out nonexistent communists, on June 9th of that year, McCarthy was ridiculed by Joseph N. Welch, who was representing the Army at the time. During the infamous Red Scare craze, McCarthy attacked innocent Americans with no proof or accountability was was finally brought to his knees by Welch, which ended his rein of terror. On June 9, 1954, McCarthy again became agitated at Welch’s steady destruction of each of his arguments and witnesses.
