People lived in constant anxiety of America falling to Communist control. The fear of infiltration rose when Mao Zedong led Communists to take control of China as well as the Soviets detonating the atomic bomb. This caused the anxiety and fear to increase because even some American Scientists didn’t believe that the Soviets had the expertise to do so. American citizens began to believe that communist spies had been able to steal American technology. The detonation of the bomb started drills throughout America.

In 1920’s Chicago the United States of America was in turmoil. The federal government had outlawed the sale, distribution, and production of any type of alcoholic beverage. This set the scene for folks of all varieties of people to strike it rich, especially mobsters and gangsters. These mobs could get a hold of liquor from many countries, especially Canada and have it imported right under the Coast Guard’s nose. The liquor would then go into abandoned warehouses until it could be sold to the public.
Another factor that gave testament to the fact that many people were consuming illegal liquor during this period was the fact that thousands of deaths were attributed to tainted liquor. One can assume that prohibition caused the population to view alcohol as “forbidden fruit”. This caused them to take risks where they might not have even considered using alcohol before. Whiskey sold by bootleggers often made people sick as they were tainted with many poisonous additives. Many bootleggers stole industrial alcohol, industrial methanol or wood alcohol and redistilled it to make it drinkable.
In addition, gang violence is a consequence of today’s drug trade. As of 2012 the Los Angeles Police Department reported across the Los Angeles County, there have been “a total of 39,435 arrests associated with drugs, and 923 deaths aftermath of gang related violence. The illegal drug market in Los Angeles is one of the most profitable, and most violent, across the country” (LAPD).

Moreover, it is in the streets where the brutality takes place, gang wars are started because of greed and power over turf.
This era of Anti-Semitism was caused by the rising of the Ku Klux Klan and many of many people who strengthened the hate of the Jewish community. The Jews were thought see as not contributing to anything of value. Henry Ford even called Jews a threat, saying that Jewish bankers started the first world war to make profits.2 In Leo Frank’s case, he may have been convicted, not because of evidence but because the jury “was intimidated by the mob atmosphere which demanded the blood of a
Ever after Jews were persecuted by Christians. In the French Revolution however People started blaming Jews for various other Reasons including Communism, The Black Death and generally everything they could think of.In the following Years Jews were mostly kept in Ghettos at the Edge of Cities to restrict them from interbreeding with the Citizens.

These accusations caused loss in Hollywood business because Americans began to be fearful that Hollywood was communist and they didn 't want to give any of their money to people who were not of what they believed. Even though some believe that HUAC was the main cause to the Red Scare, I believe Senator Joseph McCarthy caused more of a scare due to his accusations of the United States State Department and government. With all of the events that took place during this time, they all added up to cause a scare in America at the time.

McCarthy accused American citizens as well as the United States government while HUAC only accused Hollywood
