...Anticommunism and McCarthyism Hist/145 November 30, 2011 Janice Harder This paper will require me to define and use quotations to defend my position to answer the questions of the difference between McCarthyism and anti-communism, the perspective of the press, the decisions of the foreign policy, and the lives of Americans. I would attempt to integrate the questions of McCarthyism, anti-communism, and the perspective of the press in the first part of the paper, because they are related. The differences are that McCarthyism was a radical expression of anti-communism, because anti-communism was a political belief that was against any social, cultural, political, and foreign policy that supported a government controlled state, economy, and cultural life. McCarthyism sought to fight communism by rooting out disloyal government officials through hearings, investigations, and wire tapping them to find out if they had allegiance to the communist party. McCarthy came out in the 1950's with a list of 205 spies that changed every day, but he began to target spies that no longer worked for the government(Goldfield D, 2006). They are closely related, but McCarthyism accused too many innocent people such as teachers, the army, and was finally censured by the Senate for interfering with the rights of the citizens which the article on the censorship and the symbol of McCarthyism spoke on. The press manipulated the perspectives of the nation by either promoting McCarthyism......

...Anti-Communism and McCarthyism Stacie Clifton HIS/145 April 29, 2011 Mike Breakey Anti-Communism and McCarthyism When it comes to “anti-communism”, many Americans confuse the difference between it, and McCarthyism. Anti-Communism is a set of beliefs, social values, or political opinions that communism or a party system of government in which the government holds all power, including the economy, is not acceptable. McCarthyism is the practice of publicizing accusations of political disloyalty or subversion with the insufficient regard to evidence with the use of unfair investigatory methods to suppress opposition. After WWI, America entered into one of the most frightening and stressful times we have ever had. America entered into a frenzied hysteria, mostly caused by radical groups, European immigrants, and the American communist party, around 1919. The communist movement, as it would be known, appeared to threaten our freedom, and our will to live as Americans. Although it was mostly something you just “heard” about, it wasn’t until a Senator, named Joe McCarthy, stepped onto the world stage, pointing fingers at certain people, and accusing them in very harsh public speaking’s, and hearings. His tactic was to find communist supporters here in America and expose them. In a sense, he started a failed crusade, mostly fueled by fear, which in the end would be seen as a modern day “witch-hunt”. His stand and his actions would later be called what we know as......

...Anticommunism and McCarthyism Thomas Wolfe HIS 145 February 7, 2011 Justin Horton Anticommunism and McCarthyism The Cold War was around for about 44 years and the focal point of it all was Communism. The US and Soviet were on each end of the spectrum. The Soviet was a communist nation with a hunger to grow while the US would do whatever necessary to prevent the fall to communism. These two large power houses had to build power in one direction or the other because it is almost impossible for two large powers to share the wealth. We will discuss the differences between Anticommunism and McCarthyism while looking at how the media covered this during that time. American foreign policy would be changed forever due to the push of anticommunism. Lastly, we will look at how the Red Scare changed the lives of Americans. Anti-communism and McCarthyism have some very minor similarities that should be focused on but never to be associated as being the same thing. Communism is a method to create an environment where everyone is of equal class and will work while the communist government collects all of the money and gives you only what you need. They own the land, the house, the food, the water, and anything else in between. Anti-communism is the resistance against this way of living. The United States and of course, President Truman, was totally sold on ensuring that the United States does not come under the communistic ways. Anticommunism was a methodology to do all that......

...American foreign policy Americans war with Korea was to keep communism from spreading. The United States adopted the Marshall Plan which in turned earned billions of dollars in trading revenue (Brinkley, 2007). The Marshall Plan helps to aid its allies and rebuild and to prevent Soviet Union from expanding their communist beliefs (Brinkley, 2007). The Truman Doctrine allocated money to Greece and Turkey was also in need of assistance. One of the primary objectives of the foreign policy of the United States is the creation of conditions in which we and other nations will be able to work out a way of life free from intimidation (The Truman Doctrine, n.d.) . Red Scare The late 1940's would see the rise of the new Red Scare (Brinkley, 2007). He reintroduced America to the Red Scare, it stayed in the spotlight due to the coverage of Senator McCarthy, and the movement deemed McCarthyism keeping communism in minds of Americans (Tyrer, 2009). Many in Hollywood were "blacklisted" and never again worked in Hollywood. Red Scare in America struck fear into so many, and how one man could single handedly stir such controversy in Hollywood and for those in power in America. Senator Lehman stated, "This is not between Britain and the United States, but between McCarthyism and America's role of leadership in the free world Communism must be attacked with equal force since both seek national disunity and destruction of freedom (Tyrer, 2009).” B.I. (1975), wrote “the HUAC’s......

Anti-Communism in the United States

...Anticommunism and McCarthy A common mistake that many people, including some historians, make consists of equating a general idea, principle, or thought with the movement that forms behind that ideal. For instance, some mistake violent extremists claiming to work on the principle or idea of their religion as true representatives of that religion. However, while a movement is working to politicize or publicize an idea or belief, the movement is not necessarily equivalent to, or perhaps even relevant to, the idea that underlies the movement. Much of this is true with the frequently overlooked distinction between McCarthyism and the more general anticommunism. Properly defined, anticommunism is an ideology that holds that communism is morally and politically wrong. Regardless of whether the communist regime is legitimate or not according to the standards of Western democracy, the anti-communist believes that government is fundamentally wrong and should not exist. Because anticommunism is an ideology (that is, is based on an idea), any person regardless of country or place in government, can be an anti-communist by virtue of the fact that an anti-communist is, by definition, nothing more than a person ideologically opposed to the idea of communism. Being opposed does not specify any action on the part of the person, however. In other words, being anti-communist does not mean a person will participate in marches against communism or boo communists in public debate. Simply......

Anticommunism and Mccarthyism

...lunch companion was an undercover agent, whose report on the LWS soon reached the Special House Committee for the Investigation of Un-American Activities (better known as the Dies committee).2 In December, the Dies committee charged that most of the consumer groups that had burst onto the political scene since 1935-including the League of Women Shoppers, Consumers' National Federation, and several others-were controlled by Communists. Dies committee researcher J. B. Matthews claimed that the Communist party was exploiting consumer protests against "real or fancied abuses" in order to discredit "free enterprise in the United States."3 This was an early skirmish in a thirty-year war against the consumer movement, waged in the name of anticommunism by conservative business interests and their allies in government. This anticommunist campaign damaged the movement by undercutting its grassroots support, pressuring its leaders to moderate their objectives, and, until recently, hindering its visibility to scholars. But the effect on the consumer movement is only the beginning of the story. Consumer activists had the ear of federal policymakers and in some cases obtained jobs in federal agencies. This article argues that right-wing hostility to these consumer advocates was an important source of the crusade against "Communists in government." That crusade, which began in the late 1930s and reached a fever pitch in the late 1940s and early 1950s, changed the stakes of partisan......

Anticommunism

...Anticommunism, or the rejection of the idea that capitalism will be proceeded by socialism and communism, originally emerged in the United States beginning in 1917 in Russia following the October Revolution. This set of ideals was introduced by Republican United States Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. The influence of anticommunism ideals and individuals has diminished significantly since the end of the Cold War in 1991 (University of Colorado, 2002). Further, according to anarchist Mikhail Bakunin, anticommunism is simply another form of government oppression and control (Pitzer College, 2011). McCarthyism, as discussed during its initial creation during the late 1940s and early 1950s, is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty or treason without significant evidence to ascertain the need for legal intervention and action. This form of governmental operation was originally created to combat anticommunism ideals and a heightened fear of communist influence on the traditional American family, but, during modern times the term is used to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as attacks of the character or lack thereof of political adversaries (University of Illinois, 2011). There are a variety of differences between anticommunism and McCarthyism. Anticommunism refers to conservatives, liberals, and socialists and the basic ideals that connect their political system. This system of social operation is often counterproductive to the modern......

...Anticommunism and McCarthyism Victor Cenales HIS/145 January 14, 2012 Timothy Heyburn Anticommunism and McCarthyism During the late 1940s and early 1950s, a struggle broke out between the Unite States and the Soviet Union in what was known as the Cold War. The west was concerned with anti-Communism becoming a part of its domestic politics. It had become an obsession of most conservative politicians to expose what they call Communist subversion and at the same time dealt a blow to the liberal causes. The interest of the Soviet Union was in the control of strategic interest. In addition the Soviet Union was determined to create a secure sphere for itself in Central and Eastern Europe as protection against possible future aggression from the West (Brinkley Ch. 29). These different views were the bases for the Cold War. Not only did the cold war have international consequences but also create a division within the United States. Since Communism was a major concern, the spread of anti-Communism was introduced as a way to protect the fundamental way Americans lived. In addition anti-Communism gave birth to McCarthyism. I will discuss the differences between anticommunism and McCarthyism, the perspective from which the media covered anticommunism and McCarthyism, how the American foreign policy decisions were affected or impacted by anticommunism and finally how Americans’ lives changed because of the Red Scare.

...Anticommunism and McCarthyism Travis Hall His/145 4/27/2011 Richard Pinder At the end of World War II, there was a continuing state of political conflict, military tension, proxy wars and economic competition that existed between the United States and the Soviet Union, commonly known as The Cold War. These two superpowers conflicted and were competitive about many things, but none greater than the difference in government. The Soviet Union, being a communist country was highly unfavorable to the majority of the world. The United States attempted to use containment as a primary strategy to keep communism away from its shores. This strong resilience prompted the phrase, anti-communism, which simply means against communism. Even though America maintained itself as a democracy, there was a sweeping fear that communism may infiltrate the American government. Senator Joseph Raymond McCarthy became the most visible public face during this period. Senator McCarthy helped to perpetuate this fear, by making claims that there were an extremely large number of Communist and Soviet spies inside the United States federal government. This brought about the coining of the phrase McCarthyism. McCarthyism has become a common phrase for making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. McCarthy’s method used the fears of Americans to......
