Yes sapper, but I am sure that there were just as many British and American funds going the other way. The alliance with Stalin was only after the one between him and Hitler fell apart, so it was never one of friendship, but one of necessity.
People tended to equate socialism and it's advocates with external subversion, but many only wanted to remove the nest of rats in control of their own country. If Christ were alive in the USA between 1930 and 1955 he may well have been charged with Un-American activities as well. The parodox of all this is that the far right has always claimed to be the only true Christians. They never did figure out how to get that camel through the eye of the needle.
