This flowchart comically looks into the paranoia and obsession with radical elements during the first Red Scare from 1919 to the early 1920’s. It looks into the intense fear of immigrants because of their alleged connection to radical ideologies and how different they were perceived as from the typical American, as well as the fear of unions fueled by connections between some unions and radical organizations. For example, the accusation that you’re a communist/dangerous radical if you are an immigrant who doesn’t like American values or isn’t patriotic enough comes from the bias that was given against Sacco and Vanzetti because they were anarchist immigrants from Italy who were atheist (while most of America was Christian at the time). Let’s find out if you’re a patriotic American worthy of the beautiful freedoms, or an evil communist radical who should immediately get out of the country.
