Best Answer

After Lenin seized control, he wanted to eliminate other political party rivals in Russia. He did this by starting a civil war in which he formed and led the Red Army. Then, after that, he formed Communist International to start revolution in the rest of the world (in order to create more communism).

Also, his Dictatorship caused the U.S. anxiety. During the Russian Civil war they supported the Whites (which were the non-communist political parties that existed in Russia at the time) because they feared that Lenin would try to spread communism elsewhere outside of Russia. Annnddd, he did.. as we now know.

His dictatorship also caused the Red Scare hysteria in the U.S.
