The things you learn at the American Thinker....
For instance, J. Edgar Hoover was not at all gay. This would be according to "Edward S. Miller, a lifetime FBI man of high rank and stature, recently passed away at the age of 89. A good man and good American, Miller, who was also a veteran of World War II (Okinawa), faithfully served his family, country, and God." This is as reported by Paul Kengor, author of the very scholarly The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor.
And why would anyone think Hoover was gay? COMMIES, that's why.
Hoover's political enemies on the soft left and (especially) the hard left smeared him with false claims. No one excelled at disinformation and blatantly vicious lies and character assassination quite like the Communist Party.
Except maybe, I don't know, J. Edgar Hoover -- or so would say the vicious, hypocritical, Real Bigots™, the Hard Left (meaning you, redsnouts). (Or else, maybe, Eleanor Roosevelt.) But Kengor has Proof of the Commie Smear Campaign, PROOF!
For the record, I'm no expert on J. Edgar Hoover. I cannot confirm all that Ed Miller told me about the man.
Wait, that's not it. Hold on. Here is the PROOF:
I can further confirm that Ed Miller's eyes swelled with tears and he choked up as he talked glowingly about his old boss.
Look, the CPUSA has already successfully character assassinated Liberace -- can we let them do the same thing to poor J. Edgar?
Also, and this is pretty great, J. Edgar Hoover was totally not a racist.
Miller proceeded to give me example after example. Among them, here's one that will throw liberals for a loop, clashing as it does with their ideological prejudices:
"We needed black agents," said Miller of the FBI of the 1960s. "We needed them badly. I went out and hired 13 black agents in one fell swoop, and he [Hoover] approved every single one of them. I put together a new group of 56 agents altogether, 13 of them black. And Hoover said, 'This is the finest class of agents I've ever seen.' They were really well educated, athletic, great shape. And Hoover, as director, personally shook the hands of all 56 in his office."
Gosh. I am surely loop-thrown.
Whyever did J. Edgar Hoover suddenly "badly need" black FBI agents in the 1960s? I just do not know. Whatever did Hoover want these black agents to do, oh goodness I am not certain, but absolutely definitely it was in the cause of defeating vicious attacks on civil rights leaders.
I mean, if Hoover was a "racist," would he have admired how surprisingly educated these strapping "athletic" bucks were? And to have gone so far as to do something so astounding as to have shaken their hands, just as if they had gotten the exact same job as a white person? What a hero!
My ideological prejudices, they have been duly clashed.
One prays that the end of the cruel injustices inflicted upon America by the recently eviscerated Voting Rights Act will give rise to a new generation of anti-racist heroes, like, say J. Edgar Hoover. Who was totally boning Dorothy Lamour. Or was it Sonja Henie? Whatever.
Truly the American future is boundlessly glorious.
