Quotes: Red Scare
BETTER DEAD THAN RED!

COMMUNISM IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF FAILURE!
Liberty Prime, Fallout 3

"All this humiliating business was made worse by the rise of Senator Joe McCarthy. Yet, to be fair, McCarthy could never have flourished had it not been for Harry S. Truman's mandatory loyalty oaths for all government workers because the Russians were coming, and we must root out their agents wherever they may be and a crypto-commie, if he swore falsely, would, everyone knew, crumble to ashes."

"Were the Junior Senator from Wisconsin in the pay of the Communists he could not have done a better job for them."
Sen. Ralph Flanders (R-VT)

"The real issues are whether the power of Western Civilization, as God has permitted it to flower in our own beloved lands, shall defy and defeat Communism; whether the rule of men who shoot their prisoners, enslave their citizens, and deride the dignity of man, shall displace the rule of those to whom the individual and his individual rights are sacred; whether we are to survive with God's hand to guide and lead us, or to perish in the dead existence of a Godless world."
General Matthew Ridgway, Korea, 1951

Yes! Whenever bicycles are broken, or menaced by International Communism, Bicycle Repair Man is ready! Ready to smash the communists, wipe them up, and shove them off the face of the earth... Mash that dirty red scum, kick 'em in the teeth where it hurts. Kill! Kill! Kill! The filthy bastard commies, I hate 'em! I hate 'em! Aaargh! Aaargh!

"We hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. Every time I hear those words I say to myself, 'That man is a Red, that man is a Communist.' You never heard a real American talk in that manner."
Frank Hague, mayor of Jersey City, 1938

"If you haven't found any communists in your backyard, you aren't looking hard enough!"
Book Chute, Fallout: New Vegas

Merton: Communist America. This is like one of those Red Scare movies Chuck Norris made during the 80s, only without the paper-thin villain spouting clichéd commands -
Supreme Commisar: SILENCE, CAPITALIST PIGS! (Merton rolls his eyes)
Big Wolf on Campus, "Commie Dawkins"
