McCarthyism: A Cartoon

This cartoon shows Senator McCarthy lighting a fire to communism in the United States. It shows the resemblance between his communist search and the Salem Witch Trials. It displays his supposed "evidence" as the fuel for this communist fire. The man on the stake is Stalin, because he was the main leader in the spread of communism in the USSR and surrounding Asian nations. This fire continued four years before it McCarthy was censured for his reckless behavior and false accusations.
