  The Red Scare
A panic that "Reds" were behind the strike took over Boston despite the lack of any radicalism on the part of the striking police officers.
As a result of the strikes and unrest, the strikers were branded as "Reds" and as being unpatriotic.
The Red Scare quickly ran its course and, by the summer of 1920, it was largely over.

  Red Scare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first Red Scare has origins in the alleged subversive actions of foreign and leftist elements in the United States and the efforts of the U.S. government to suppress dissent and to engineer pro-war opinion in the preparation for the American entry into World War I.
There were also effects on America's way of life as a result of the Red Scare and the nuclear arms race, which contributed to the popularization of fallout shelters in home construction and regular duck and cover drills at schools.
The Red Scare is also cited as one factor that contributed to the rise and popularity of science fiction films during the 1950s and beyond.

The roots of the Red Scare lie in the efforts of the U.S. government to suppress dissent and engineer pro-war opinion in the preparation for the American entry into World War I.

 McCarthyism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It grew out of the Second Red Scare that began in the late 1940s and is named after the U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy, a Republican of Wisconsin.
The guilt, innocence, and good or bad intentions of the icons of the Red Scare (McCarthy, the Rosenbergs, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elia Kazan) are still discussed as proxies for the imputed virtues or vices of their successors and sympathizers.
Though the interpretation of the Red Scare might seem to be of only historical interest following the end of the Cold War, the political divisions it created in the United States continue to manifest themselves, and the politics and history of anti-communism in the United States are still contentious.

The Red Scare, which was more intense in Washington than in most states, deprived communists of their First Amendment rights, permanently destroyed several radical political organizations, temporarily frightened many liberals into silence, and allowed conservatives to virtually dismantle Washington's state-level health care system for the poor.
The Red Scare obviously cut a broad swath across Washington state politics in the late 1940s and 1950s—propelling conservative politicians to power, destroying the Washington Pension Union and other radical political groups, temporarily silencing liberal dissenters, and leaving a trail of besmirched reputations and shattered careers.
During the height of the Red Scare, courts condoned the persecution of leftists by accepting the principle of "guilt by association" and by granting incredibly broad powers to the Canwell Committee and HUAC.

 Red Scare Summary
The term "Red Scare" has been retroactively applied to two distinct periods of strong anti-Communism in United States history: first from 1917 to 1920, and second from the late 1940s through the mid-1950s, which signified the entrance into the Cold War.
There were also effects on America's way of life as a result of the Red Scare and the nuclear arms race, which contributed to the popularization of fallout shelters in home construction and regular duck and cover drills at schools.
The Red Scare is also cited as one factor that contributed to the rise and popularity of science fiction films during the 1950s and beyond.

 History: Analysis of the Red Scare
Red Scare was the label given to the actions of legislation, the race riots, and the hatred and persecution of "subversives" and conscientious objectors during that period of time.
At the heart of the Red Scare was the conscription law of May 18, 1917, which was put in place during World War I for the armed forces to be able to conscript more Americans.
What is known as the Red Scare of 1919-1921 set precedent to the witch hunts of the McCarthy era, where he accused two presidents (Dwight D. eisenhower was even a member of his own party) of being Communists Even today, many lessons can and have been learned from this experience.

 Amazon.com: Red Scare: Memories of the American Inquisition: Books: Griffin Fariello   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Red Scare is a vivid oral history of a time when subscribers to the Nation, devotees of foreign films, and even those who supported Franklin Roosevelt's fourth term came under suspicion of being Communists or fellow travelers, a time that Griffin Fariello likens to the Inquisition.
Red Scare includes chapters on some of the best-known episodes of the era - the 1949 Peekskill riot, the Hiss and Rosenberg cases, the Hollywood Ten - as well as chapters on teachers, unionists, entertainers, anti-segregationists, peace activists, and others.
Because Red Scare is not concerned with evaluating the impact of anticommunism in connection with the supposed threat of communism in the United States, Fariello does not take great pains to separate the narratives of admitted Communist Party members from those who denied membership or those for whom the question remains ambiguous.

 The Red Scare, McCarthyism, and Film Politics (1947-1954)
Actually, there have been two “Red Scares” in American history: one in the 1920s right after the Russian Revolution, and one in the late 1940s and early 1950s, after the beginning of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The 1947-1954 Red Scare directly affected Hollywood and the movie industry, but was not limited to them.
All these films gave their writers, directors, and producers the ability to deny that they were explicitly about the Red Scare, since one had to interpret them as such.

 Ted DeCorte's The Red Scare in Nevada, 1919-1920
Fear of a radical takeover in the United States led to suppression and persecution of anyone perceived as "un-American." This era of intolerance and paranoia engulfed Nevada, and its citizens responded harshly to the "Red Menace." Nevada's response was both a part of and a reaction to the volatile national scene during 1919-1920.
Americans were also distressed by the influence of two radical organizations on their own home front: a Socialist party advocating drastic change in the existing political and economic system, and the Industrial Workers of the World preaching the destruction of capitalism and the government.
With economic abnormalities, the capital-labor dispute and the explosive national mood the stage was set for America's first Red Scare.

The Red Scare is no exception to this tendency toward unintentionally hilarious lyrical caplets; the above examples are from their second and last full-length, Strangers Die Everyday.
But while the Red Scare offers us ho-hum, sophomoric poetry in the verses, they've made distancing strides away from the rest of the pack in their sound.
But alas, already, the Red Scare seems to have suffered from the volatile group dynamics that are epidemic of bands in this niche: they've split after a short, two-album career.

 San Diego Zoo's Got Questions? Does red scare birds?
I have heard that when a bird sees a red car it might frighten him and cause him to release his bowels (if birds have bowels).
In fact, many birds are attracted to the color red, because they eat red berries or nectar from red flowers, and in some species the males have red feathers or skin that they use in courtship displays to impress a female.
So it may be possible that birds poop on red cars because they are actually drawn to the color.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: The Red 'Scare' Was Real by Ronald Radosh
The words added to the Pledge went "hand in hand with the Red Scare, to which it was inextricably linked." The campaign to add "under God," he states, "was part of this [Red Scare] movement."
In reality, the Communist insistence on "atheism" was part and parcel of their totalitarian ideology: Marxism-Leninism, itself a state religion, could not sanction a free society based on freedom of religion and tolerance for competing systems of faith or belief.
Just last year, its publisher and editorial director, Victor Navasky, wrote a lengthy article on what he called "the Missing Red Menace," warning of a new attempt to resurrect McCarthyism, so that tactics "pioneered by the red-baiters of half a century ago" can be used today against opponents of the Bush administration.

We also care about teaching, learning, inclusion., and serious intellectual thought.This “Operation Red Scare” (as their publicity originally named it) is pure conservative hogwash and backlash.
Mcpherson and her Bushevik (as I call them) colleagues would like to have all students (and faculty) arrive on campus every morning in matching military and biblical uniforms pledging “Sieg Bush” to their right wing, couldn`t be any more anti than the principles that this country was founded on right wing, conservative, facist wacko heroes.
