2. The Rosenberg Case

The second long-standing myth is that of the trial for conspiracy to commit espionage of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Suffice it to say, the Rosenbergs were indeed Soviet agents, seeking to provide Stalin’s U.S.S.R. with whatever military and industrial secrets the ring could gather to hand over to the Soviet totalitarian state. When I first wrote about this in the 1983 book Joyce Milton and I co-authored, we were lonely voices intent on telling the true story. By now our conclusions have been widely accepted, and in America, only a dwindling group of old Communists and fellow-travelers believe in their innocence.

This, however, is not the case, evidently, with the French.

On the 61st anniversary of their execution, June 19 of this year, Le Point ran a piece informing its readers that the “conviction of the Rosenbergs is the result of a huge paranoia that grips an entire nation.” It is a result of “fantastic Red-baiting” that existed throughout the United States. The trial was nothing but “a mock trial.” They note that “many organizations worldwide are calling today for review of the Rosenberg case.”

That falsehood is meant to create the impression that they will not be hoodwinked, and that despite everything known about the case, the left knows the “truth” that they were innocent. And readers of Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, revised way after the truth of their guilt was known, will find a section of his book on the Rosenberg case where he predictably uses old discredited material to “prove” that they were framed (pp.432-435).

Well, that's accurate. The Left is nothing but myths, all of their own inspiration. They do this in everything, weave a little tale of their "caring," of their "social justice," how they are the "saviors of us all." All of it is one big pantload.

Bill Ayers got into the field of Education for a reason: the left can systematically brainwash children in school. Mr. Radosh mentions a few of the myths your children are learning in school. The Scopes Trial, U.S. Civil Rights history, and the Vietnam War are other topics rife with "Liberal good/Conservative bad" lessons for young minds.

Yeah, and not only that, they even praise the French Revolution and the Enlightenment as being similar to the American War for Independence, when it was not and in fact was a forerunner to the Communist revolutions. I'd know from experience. They also teach that free sex and second-wave feminism is good even in subjects that have absolutely nothing to do with them. It's been a problem since Voltaire, Rousseau, and their fellow Philosophes' gained control of education during the Enlightenment (yes, even David Hume and Kant participated in this travesty as well). We can't fix education because what they did was precisely what they aimed for all along. All we can do now is to utterly destroy it and leave it in ruins.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

The left lies about virtually every aspect of history. Just look at the statue of Abraham Lincoln they built in Chicago with the inscription "Abraham Lincoln: Democrat".

Look at their treatment of Joseph McCarthy. Today we know, thanks to documents declassified during the Clinton and early Bush years, that McCarthy was not some crazed loon who thought there was a communist under every bed, but that he was correct on virtually every case.

Just get the left talking about the Civil Rights Act. Their version of the story is that the Democrats that filibustered it all changed to Republicans. Other than Strom Thurmond, who publicly renounced his former segretationist views and spent the rest of his life as a champion of civil rights, and won numerous awards from the black community, can anyone name another? Did KKK Kleagel and Grand Cyclopse Robert Byrd switch? Nope. Did author of the Southern Manifesto William Fulbright switch? Nope. Did racist-til-the-day-he-died Al Gore Sr switch? Nope.

The left HAS to lie about history, because if they told the truth, they'd be seen for what they all are: A bunch of racist pro-Hitler fascists that seek to revoke all rights and steal all your wealth.

Whether that's true or not is not the point. Today's new generation is being raised on the same distortions of history but in a more generic way and one conspicuously attached to race.

In these new histories, colonialism is the star, and all non-ethnic European colonialism disappears. I invite anyone to visit Wikipedia's various page versions of "colonialism" if you want to be stunned at what you DON'T find.

In these new histories, Jim Crow and lynchings are spread evenly coast-to-coast, without regard to facts or laws.

In these new histories, any past cultural artifact that is demographically male, white or heterosexual is automatically granted the status of an institutional and ideological expression of white male supremacy and homophobia, independent of facts or rules.

The new generation doesn't talk about historic events but of straight, white, and male. Oppressor and guilt is doled out in advance and simply assumed.

I had my own disillusioning experience with "leftist" hero Ralph Bunche, whose sculpted bust adorns the history and social sciences building at UCLA, one of his schools. See http://clarespark.com/2014/06/18/how-ralph-bunche-sold-out-and-failed-in-palestine/.
