The most acknowledgeable dispute from the play was between the Putnam’s and the Nurse’s. Rebecca Nurse was blamed for the death of all of Ann Putnam’s children, except for one. The events also caused numerous people to be convicted of witchcraft, some of them being executed. Two of the most notable people convicted in the play were John Procter, condemned for adultery and later hung, and Tituba, who confessed, saving her own life.
After 9/11, many people though the whole Muslim community was responsible because they did not know the difference between the terrorist groups and the peaceful groups. The Muslim religion revolves around peace, but the extremists believe that Allah is telling them to terrorize people and things. People would be rude to RJ, saying that just because he was Muslim he would basically go no where. “I grew up hearing that Muslims are terrorists. I didn’t see Muslims like me on TV or in the movies: the Muslims on the screen were evil” (Khalaf 10).
These innocent Muslims from London went to their holy mosque just to be met by the man that would attempt to kill them solely because of their religion. An article called, “Teens are Often hated recruits” by Tamara Koehler and Tom Kisken, establish the idea that, “the most religiously motivated hate crimes are acts of vandalism, and personal attacks are directed against Muslims” (Koehler 2). The question is why Muslims suffer from so many hate crimes? Muslims are blamed for immigration crisis in many countries because it’s another group that the whites have to compete against and are considered a threat. Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1).
It is based on the Salem Witch trials in February of 1692 and May of 1693. The trials were the product of the death of twenty innocents accused of witchcraft. The use of propaganda in the Crucible is not only present, but defines the story as a whole because it is used so frequently. Throughout the play, different types of propaganda and fallacies are used very often. There are many different types of propaganda found in the Crucible.
So after McCarthy made these statements, it almost made like a ripple effect by having everyday people, being accused of people that “suspected” that they were communists as well. And as a result of everyday people being accused, they would be put on a blacklist. In today’s world, the person that has caused others to be accused is Osama Bin Laden. The people that play the role of the accuser, is the American government. And the people who are accused are Muslim Refugees from the middle east.
Guilt plays a major role in the outcome of the Salem Witch Trials, the need for redemption caused the towns people to blame others for their mistakes. Throughout The Crucible, Abigail Williams had misguided intentions. Abigail was the ringleader of the girls of The Crying Out, these girls
The Muslims are coming to America to radicalize people and attack Americans. Islam is a religion of hate and oppression. The Muslims have conquered and assimilated countries in the past just like how they are doing it now. Islamic people are immigrating to America to radicalize Americans and create terrorist cells. There are many Muslims that come to America for a better life, yet even if a small percentage of those coming to America are radical, the consequences are far-reaching.
Cameron Oldfield Mrs. Brincks English III 15 November, 2015 The Crucible and Red Scare Imagine being thrown in jail, blamed for something that you didn't do .The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, is a story about how certain propaganda and false accusations can ruin lives, just like in the case of the Red Scare. Although 1692 the Salem witch trials and the Red Scare were over 200 years apart, The similarities are striking. both trials used intimidation, fear, hatred, and false accusations to ruin innocent lives. Both trials resulted in terrible outcomes, with both ending with innocent people being put to death and shunned from society. Arthur Miller was one of the most popular American playwrights
Isn’t that injustice towards everyone non-white? One thing I know is that the internet doesn’t seem to think that. Firstly, Islam is the religion of peace and Muslim belief is based on peace. As far as I know, terrorism is not peaceful and framing Islam is just history repeating itself, remember the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), didn’t they misrepresent Christianity? Nevertheless, whether terrorism has a religion or not is definitely not what I am here to write about.
It was a devastating time for the Puritans. Family accused family and friends accused friends. These accusations lasted from February 1692 to May 1693, and more than 200 people were accused for witchcraft. 19 of the the 200 were were hanged and one was pressed to death. Many people accused others for being witches because of fear, popularity, and revenge.
The Salem Witch trials were started in 1692. According to History.com, a group of girls claimed to be possessed with the devil and that they were practicing witchcraft. This event may have caused the trials to begin. With the mix of the belief of the underworld and witches, the rumors began and spread like wildfire. Many people believed the girls and demanded for the people who were “possessed” to be killed a the spirit removed from the body and let free.
The 1950s harbored one of the largest witch hunts in world history, the second Red Scare. This brutal political movement targeted Communists, Socialists, and members of subversive groups, physically and socially maiming those citizens. Led by Joseph McCarthy, innocent members of society were figuratively “burned at the stake” in public trials and accused them of Communism and espionage. McCarthy’s ruthless tactics sparked the development of “McCarthyism,” which today refers to any unfounded accusation of a person with immaterial evidence. The second Red Scare is comparable to Salem Village, Massachusetts where the original witch hunt began, based off of mass hysteria, just like the Red Scare.
These were the main reasons for the cause of the Salem witch trials. When three girls were accused of being possessed by the devil in 1962, suspicions ran wild. Many believed that the devil was taking over society and taking over people in the community. According to this theory, once one child was possessed
People were so full of fear that they would do anything to eliminate their anxiety. The McCarthy hearings of the 1950s reenacted the hysteria of the Salem witch trials of 1692 by spreading mass fear of prosecution, creating false accusations, and blacklisting people. The Salem witch trials were considered to be America 's most notorious episode of witchcraft hysteria. Many innocent people were killed as a result of false accusations, and many other women were put through trials to determine if they were witches. All of the evidence that was given, in other circumstances, would be deemed unreasonable.
During the Salem Witch Trials a lot of people were accused of using witchcraft. As a result many people died for other people’s lies, rumors, and selfishness. There is one person that really caused and is most to blame for all the chaos, her name is Abigail. Abigail is to blame for all that has happened in the Witch Trials, the reason for that is because of all the accusing and lying she has done. In addition, it all leads up to her for instance, she used a doll to accuse people of witchcraft.
