Communism was portrayed as a disease; the 'red scum' was spreading and was determined to extinguish the Australian style of living. Australia had become more diverse in the years since the War. There was a huge influx of migrants from Europe, many fleeing the terrors of the Second World War and newly established communist regimes in Eastern Europe. Foreigners from communist countries were viewed with suspicion. The stories of communist plots fell on fertile ground and many Australians became scared of the influence of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA). (wiliam 2014)
