Propaganda of the Red Scare
Transcript of Propaganda of the Red Scare
The Second Red Scare In the 1950's, there was an event in our history which scared the whole nation. This event was called the Second Red Scare. The Second Red Scare was called that because "Red" was referring to communism. The American people were frightened that communism would make it's way into the peaceful neighborhoods of America. This fright, or fear, gave way for multiple propaganda ads. The Communistic fear Propaganda was used in the Crucible to make the villagers believe they have been touched by the devil. Abby started the trend, she used the bandwagon method to get her friends to join her. Then, when matters became serious and people we actually being hung for being "witches," the fear method of propaganda was used to make everyone confess to their dealings with the devil. In reality, none of the villagers were actually witches or had any dealings with the Devil, but because they were frighten, scared for thei lives, they admitted to being withes. The judge used the fear method to make people confess. He would remind the person(s) that if they did not confess they would be hung. The propaganda used in the 1940's and 1950's relates to the crucible because the method of fear was very heavily used. References "Propaganda." Dictionary.com. Dictionary.com, n.d. Web. 14 Dec. 2012.
