Colleague and Blaze Magazine editor Chris Field has alerted us to the fact that M. Stanton Evans has passed.
Mr. Evans was an anti-Communist researcher and author par excellence, who exposed the mass infiltration of American institutions by Communists and Communist sympathizers prior to and during the Cold War.
He took contrarian and controversial positions in support of like-minded individuals, including Sen. Joe McCarthy on whom he published a revisionist history in an attempt to rehabilitate his image.
Glenn Beck spoke with Evans about Communist infiltration and Sen. McCarthy back in 2010, which you can watch below:
We also recommend this speech from 2013.
You can read more about his long and successful career in conservative journalism at Powerline, and check out some of his particularly poignant books below:
