Anticommunist sentiment drew from the left as well as the right, from trade union halls as well as corporate boardrooms, from the soapbox as well as the pulpit; its adherents included the labor leader Walter Reuther as well as Francis Cardinal Spellman, the socialist Norman Thomas as well as Senator Joseph McCarthy.
One consisted of those whom he calls, rather awkwardly, "countersubversive anticommunists," persons "obsessed with uncovering plots that were, for the most part, figments of their own imagination." The other consisted of "responsible Americans with an anticommunism rooted in a realistic and principled view of the world."
For responsible anticommunists, how-ever, communism was a threat to America, not a threat in America.

 Jelani Cobb:::::Opening Ranks: A Post-History and Conclusion

 Essay on "Teaching the Conflicts"
The "politically independent" Bellow who shrewdly summons up the anticommunist years when he speaks about the folly of the multiculturalists is the same urban lyricist who is disgusted by Broadway's cultural melange--is the very same PC basher who has challenged the contemporary literary-critical left to show him the Tolstoy of the Zulus.
For most anticommunists of the fifties, Hutchins's ardent promotion of dialogue and "conversation"--the interanimations of a variety of positions, as in Hutchins's Great Books program--meant little more or less than communism, or at the very least a submission to communism, which was in effect communism.
What really unnerved anticommunists yearning to see red in Hutchins was his refutation of the idea that teachers know and give answers, and his promotion of lively discussion in which "sharp differences of opinion lends interest to everyone"--a point (which in context was once thus an anti-anticommunist one) essential to Graff.
