Christian Anti-Communist Crusade USA - - - - 1958 Reeves, Thomas C. Twentieth Century America: A Brief History. New York: Oxford University Press (2000); pg. 169. "After the demise of the Second Red Scare, many of the fears that had fueled it remained poweful in the minds of a few. In 1958 Massachusetts candy-maker Robert Welch founded the John Birch Society, an extremist organization that saw Communist conspiracy almost everywhere (including in the Eisenhower Administration). Fundamentalist preacdher Billy James Hargis and his Christian Crusade, and Australian evanglist Fred Schwartz and the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade were in the same ideological camp. Most Americans, however, paid little attention to the extremists of the right or left. "
