The Communist Control Act of 1954 is an act of congress, passed in 1954 during the height of the second red scare and the early Cold War.

The act that declared the Communist Party of the United States and any successor organization to be in an undemocratic, authoritarian conspiracy to overthrow or subvert the national government and would be outlawed, losing any rights it had as a political party and its willful members subject to the provisions of the Internal Security Act of 1950.[1]

Since its passing, it has never been enforced due to the weakness of the party, but still remains a law, never ruled unconstitutional or repealed.
