anti-coms, anti-anti-coms and so forth

I find it interesting that much of what Grover has contributed here by way of,
for want of a better term, the hidden history of communist influence in American
life in the 50s and 60s parallels the very things the Right has been saying all
along. For example, the Right has been crowing of late that, at long last, the
so-called Venona cables are providing much weight to its long-held view that
Alger Hiss and many other anti-anti-communist icons were indeed Soviet agents.

Am I missing something here or do I detect a note of convergence between Grover
and the Right, the basic difference being Grover's celebration of, and the
Rights's continued denigration of, this history?
