 Red Scare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 'Second Red Scare' coincided with increased fears of espionage by Communists and heightened tension from Soviet oppression in Eastern Europe (beginning in 1946), the Berlin Blockade (1948-1949), Chinese Civil War (1949), and the Korean War (1950-1953).
