Captain Black had started the Loyalty Oath Crusade because he had thought Major Major was a communist. Why is this ironic? thank you.

Captain Black is upset that he was passed up for a promotion. In revenge, Captain Black begins the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade. Each time someone wants intelligence information from him, he has to sign a loyalty oath. Gradually, Captain Black ups the requirements so that the other officers cannot compete with him. If anyone complains, he points out that those who are moral and loyal to their country will want to sign the Loyalty Oath and sign “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He refuses to let Major Major sign the oath and then accuses him of being a Communist.
