now acknowledge their parents were spies for Stalin.  This comes with the confession this week by Morton Sobell, a co-defendent in the case, that Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were guilty as charged of the crime of spying for the Soviet Union.  At this point, the only people in the world who believe that Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were not guilty of betraying their country are a 100,000 professors in America’s universities, along with most journalists, the leftist authors of your children’s history textbooks, and the Hollywood morons.  Ronald Rodash:

With these latest events, the end has arrived for the legions of the
American left wing that have argued relentlessly for more than half a
century that the Rosenbergs were victims, framed by a hostile,
fear-mongering U.S. government. Since the couple’s trial, the left has
portrayed them as martyrs for civil liberties, righteous dissenters
whose chief crime was to express their constitutionally protected
political beliefs. In the end, the left has argued, the two communists
were put to death not for spying but for their unpopular opinions, at a
time when the Truman and Eisenhower administrations were seeking to
stem opposition to their anti-Soviet foreign policy during the Cold War.

this day, this received wisdom permeates our educational system. A
recent study by historian Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton
has found that very few college history textbooks say simply that the
Rosenbergs were guilty; according to Schweikart, most either state that
the couple were innocent or that the trial was “controversial,” or they
“excuse what [the Rosenbergs] did by saying, ‘It wasn’t that bad. What
they provided wasn’t important.’ “

But, of course, these academics are simpy lying, in order to protect their leftist religion, and to make it more palatable for their ignorant students.  This is the left wing culture that Barack Obama comes out of, an intellectual culture protected with a great fortress of lies, myths and idiocies that can never be denied.  Pay attention when Obama speaks of the Reagan years or the operation of the “free market”, and you will hear the tones of this great superstructure of leftist lies echoing out in Barack Obama’s every syllable.

UPDATE:  High school teacher Betsy Newmark on Rodash’s account of the textbooks:

I can testify to that is how the story of the Rosenbergs is covered in
history textbooks. They are part of the narrative about the Red Scare
in the 1950s so that the point is to demonstrate American paranoia
during the Cold War ..
