Transcript of Template: The Red Scare

Many innocent people were jailed or deported by the government for radical views. was a period during the Cold War in America in which many Americans feared Communist views from the 40s and 50s. Propaganda helped to spread anti-Communism all over the U.S. Please consider the following... The Red Scare It was a time of distrust and hatred. Any man who opposed a Democratic government was immediately a suspect. Anyone could be suspected at any time. In 1953, a couple by the name of Rosenburg were executed for being Communist. The Iron Curtain The Red Scare was one of the most shameful moments in U.S. history. Why is this so important? and because of this, The Iron Curtain was the symbolic split of Europe during the Cold War. Beauty Many psychologists believe that phi plays a role in the human perception of beauty but the results are inconclusive at best. Why don't you judge for yourself? Do these faces exibit phi? Ethel and Julius Rosenberg (many believe the ancient Egyptians knew about phi long before the Greeks) Bartok Debussy The trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenburg, the Iron Curtain, and the Soviet Union's nuclear weapon all contributed to the beginning of the Red Scare.

History Honors Block 3 McCarthy He was at first an admired man, who declared Communists and Communist sympathizers had infiltrated the United States. Many of the accused people were actors and writers. He damaged a huge amount of people's careers and blacklisted several people. Among them were Aaron Copeland, Leonard Berstein, Charlie Chaplain, and Lena Horne. 320 artists were blacklisted by McCarthy. It remains one of the most shameful moments in U.S. history.
