The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court's (USSC's) issuance of varying opinions on the topic of communism during the 1950s, and it mentions the term Red Monday which was coined by then-U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation Director J. Edgar Hoover to describe the day when the USSC handed down four legal decisions favoring communists (Reds). The U.S. Smith Act and the Communist Party-related cases Dennis v. United States, Barenblatt v. United States, and Uphaus v. Wyman are examined.
