The Second Red Scare occurred after World War II (19391945), and is popularly known as "McCarthyism", named after its best-known and most vociferous advocate, Senator Joseph McCarthy. McCarthyism coincided with an increased and widespread fear of communist espionage that was consequent of the increasing tension in the Cold War through the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe, the Berlin Blockade (194849), the end of the Chinese Civil War, the confessions of spying for the Soviet Union that were made by several high-ranking U.S. government officials, and the outbreak of the Korean War. Behind the scenes, the American intelligence community was well aware that American atomic secrets were indeed being regularly stolen by Soviet spies, secrets often disseminated to the Soviets faster than the Americans, and had a well-grounded reason to have the American public aroused to the threat communist states posed to the nation. Despite the validity of this reasoning, the over-reaching irrationality of the public and private sector reaction, and some of the methods used to fan that reaction, ultimately led to the discrediting of this reaction, however valid the core of the reasons for it may have been.
