First, for the children of Whittaker Chambers – my aunt and my father – the Hiss Case cannot go (or stay) far enough away.
Next, for years, politicos on both sides have cited both men out of context. They often stretch the views of Chambers and Hiss untenably to bolster their own views. Today, you added your share. Chambers, a “Tea Party” proponent? Hiss, an “Occupy Wall Street” supporter? Please! Based on what statements made by either person, compared how to these two incoherent political trends?
As for “the ideological divide that continues to this day,” as a pastor/ minister are you not more interested in healing than widening that divide?
