And of course there also was the "red scare" fomented by Sen. Joe McCarthy, R-Wis., in the 1950s when he led the commie-hunting movement that ended up victimizing government officials, academia and Hollywood.
Uhhh...helen baby, Joe McCarthy DID expose real life communists in our government. Clearly, you have a problem with that.

Actually, the real error is McCarthy did NOTHING to prosecute Hollywood, Acadademia, or government officials.
McCarthy was in charge of the department of the Army. It was HUAC that found the other commies.
