the McCarthy witch trials took place in the 1530's ;' EDIT: The McCarthy witch trials were not real witch trials. They were trials for communist spies in the American government that were comparable to the Salem Witch Trials. The McCarthy Trials took place in the 1950s.
many trials no they were not fair at all?
Yes. Witchcraft trials were a component of the Spanish Inquisition. The McCarthy Hearings in the US were compared to the Salem Witchcraft Trials.
They hurt innocent people
They were both a "witch hunt".
Very important things about the witches.
They both wear shoes.
They hurt innocent people. apex
arthur miller was Joseph McCarthy's protégé
They were not. The Salem witch Trials were compared to the MaCarthy trials because of the fear of something considered evil infiltrating a community. They are not related, just similiar.
they hurt innocent people!! ~apex!!<3
The McCarthy Witch trials are actually considered McCarthyism. This is the practice of accusing individuals of disloyalty, treason and subversion without any factual evidence. This originates from a period in the U.S known as the Second Red Scare, from the 1940's and 1950's.
people saw him as a bully as they watched his trials and McCarthy had no proof except for his "list" as a result Joe McCarthy was then silenced while being a senator
that's what it is about dummy. The Crucible is a mangling of facts and theories about the trials mashed together to create an allegory to the McCarthy trials of possible communists and Soviet spies in the US Congress.
Yes. In fact, the "Crucible" by Henry Miller was an allegory for the McCarthy trials.
Both had men who had a lot of power Both trials were run by a fear in the town (there was social and political problems) There was persecution of innocent people.
Both involved fear of something or someone inflitrating a community. In Salem, it was witches. McCarthysts believed that there were communists and soviet spies in the US Congress.
B.The McCarthy era, the Salem witch trialsapex =)
Nothing. HUAC was not involved in the "witch hunt" McCarthy hearings (the ones compared the the Salem trials), which were performed by a different government committee.
The HUAC was in charge of all the trials and herrings during the McCarthy Era. They were the supreme power of all the accusations based on Communism.
The State Department had been infiltrated by Communists. The Red Scare. Joseph McCarthy was responsible for the anti-American trials of several prominent American citizens he believed were subversive communists.
They are similiar enough to make the comparison easy, but they are also different enough that Miller couldn't get in trouble for writing against a senator who was against communism.
Both were fueled by fear of a percieved threat.Apex Answer: They hurt innocent people.
Americans showed the fear of communism thorough the McCarthy trials. The trials tried many innocent people for fear they supported communism. Students practiced duck and cover drills in case of raids.
Both were trials of people who were thought to be working for the great threat of the day. In Salem, it was witches serving the devil. In Congress, it was communist spies for the Soviet Union. And guilt was presumed in each case.
