Death Penalty for Marxists

I recently read in Brian Jones's article in the most recent ISR that Tennessee passed a law in 1951 mandating the death penalty for anyone espousing revolutionary Marxist ideas. That's right.

For more info check out Belfrage, Cedric. (1973) The American Inquisition or Caute, David. (1978) The Great Fear: The Anti-Communist Purge Under Truman and Eisenhower.
