Lenin's ideology of communism was that 1. The government owned all land and property, 2. a single political party ruled the government, and 3. the needs of the country were prioritized by the needs of individuals. and Lenin believed the only way for communism to work would be if it was spread world wide. Which would continue to shaped after Lenin's death when Joseph Stalin took power.
But I'm innocent
When Stalin rose to power he decided to use fear to spread communism around the globe. Americans feared the USSR's interest in spreading communism creating a lot of unrest in the U.S. Americans already distrusted Europeans because of WWI and people started to panic.
Schenck vs. U.S.
The verdict stands as is!!
The American people began to really worry when the Russian-backed communists tried to over-throw the new German government leading to thousands of works to go on strike all over the U.S. Then numerous bombs were being mailed to important government officials leading to the U.S. to be apart of the Red Scare
Gitlow vs. New York
As a direct response to the Red Scare Americans called for all communist to be jailed or taken out of the country. Many immigrants started to face oppression and Americans targeted minorities accusing them of being communist.

One man named Charles Schenck was convicted of breaking the Espionage act because he wrote letters to drafted men urging them no to report for duty. He tried to appeal his conviction stating he was just exercising his right to free speech. The judge didn't overturn the conviction.
In another case brought against the state of New York was Gitlow vs. New York. Bernard Gitlow was convicted of criminal anarchy because he published calls to overthrow the government by force. The court debated whether the 14th amendment protected him from this conviction but came to the conclusion it didn't.
