The idea that that America was at risk for a communist revolution is a joke. Communism has a 100% correlation with war, political upheaval, economic disaster and social dissent. The post war United States had more economic advantages than any society in recorded history. You have fallen the endless cry of every oppressive tyrant, about how the unpopular helpless minority is the aggressor and their persecution is merely self defense. Its exactly the same kind of line used by the USSR when they destroyed those accused of "counter revolutionary" activities.
