Red Scare is a phrase used to refer to periods of anti-Communism in the United States. The first “red scare” took place began towards the end of World War I and was generally characterized by worker revolution as well as radical, anarchist political upheaval. As a result, laws were passed that limited free speech and outlawed supporting the use of violence to bring about social change. The second “red scare” took place beginning in 1947 after the end of World War II and increased Soviet control of Europe. The House Un-American Activities Committee, which had become a permanent fixture at this time, focused on all aspects of Soviet influence on American society. This period of “red scare” was almost entirely about the fear of communist influence on the United States, or the possibility of infiltration of the American government.
