New York City Council Honors Ethel Rosenberg, Executed for High Treason for Delivering the US' Atomic Bomb Plans to the Soviet Union, for Her "Great Bravery"
— Ace

Great bravery.

They're not saying her "great bravery" consisted of delivering the bomb to the Soviet Union. Wink. Actually, they are saying that, but they want plausible deniability; so they're claiming they're honoring her "great bravery" in leading a labor strike, while denying the atomic spy charges. (Which are undeniable -- see the Venona intercepts. We had broken the Soviet's codes and were reading their messages to spies, a secret only revealed in 1995.)

Three council members joined Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer in issuing two proclamations lauding Rosenberg, a Lower East Side resident, for "demonstrating great bravery" in leading a 1935 strike against the National New York Packing and Supply Co., where she worked as a clerk.

The proclamations also said she was "wrongfully" executed for helping her husband, Julius, pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union.

Look, there's no question that "OSA" (Russian for "bee;" Ethel's code-name) was a member of Karl Fuch's (code-name: KALIBR) spy ring charged with working on "ENORMOZ" (the code-name for the US atomic bomb program). She urged Ruth Greenglass to recruit her husband David Greenglass (who worked for the Manhattan Project) into the spy ring; she did, Greenglass joined, and Greenglass delivered over key information to the Soviet Union.

We read their secret communications at the time; we have since disclosed this fact; and former Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev said so in his pothumously-published memoirs.

From Wikipedia:

In his posthumously published memoirs, Nikita Khrushchev, leader of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964, said that he "cannot specifically say what kind of help the Rosenbergs provided us" but that he learned from Joseph Stalin and Vyacheslav M. Molotov that they "had provided very significant help in accelerating the production of our atomic bomb".

So there's no question she did what she was alleged to have done; nor, in fact, was there much doubt at the time -- most Soviet-leaning/communist-sympathizing progressives made the Rosenbergs their heroes not because they thought they were innocent, but rather because they knew they were guilty.

Or, as they would put it: they knew the Rosenbergs had "demonstrated great bravery" on behalf of the Worker's Paradise of Mother Russia.

Some of the Rosenbergs' stalwart defenders are quite open about this.

Today, so many decades later, the descendants of the people who proclaimed the Rosenbergs' innocence have now begun yet another campaign to rehabilitate them. They now argue that although it appears Julius Rosenberg was a Soviet spy after all, he gave little of value to the Soviets, was motivated by the desire to stave off atomic war, and in any case had nothing to do with handing over atomic information of any kind to the Soviet Union.

A new variation of this argument was penned recently by the activist historian and lawyer Staughton Lynd, writing in the Marxist journal Monthly Review, founded in 1949 by the late Leo Huberman and the late Paul M. Sweezy. I have written at length about Lynd’s article, but his argument can be easily summarized. Lynd now accepts as fact that Julius Rosenberg led a Soviet spy network, but he objects to what he calls the triumphalism of those like me who have asserted this for years. More important for Lynd is that the couple refused to "snitch," therefore making themselves heroes. He maintains that their trial was a "sham," and he argues that even if they were guilty, they must be viewed as unadulterated heroes. Why? Because, he actually writes, the couple had "obligations as Communists, and as citizens of the world." So, to Lynd, the Rosenbergs' obligation to spy for Joseph Stalin stands above any loyalty to their own country, not to speak of their willingness to make their own children orphans. Secondly, Lynd believes that if the Rosenbergs helped the Soviets get the bomb, that "might have been justified," since he believes Soviet strength stopped aggression by the American imperialists.

For years, the American Left argued that the Rosenbergs were framed and innocent. Now Lynd says they were guilty but that their actions were justified because they helped "preserve the peace of the world." In effect, he is saying that instead of still attempting to prove the Rosenbergs were framed, we should celebrate them for being traitors to their own country. His argument reveals only the desperation some on the left have to descend to in order to maintain their view that the only guilty party was the United States.

They were Atomic Spies for World Peace, or something.

Sixty years later, and it's no different; the crusty old communists of New York City's government are still heaping laurels on the Sainted Heroes of the Soviet Union, Julius (LIBERAL) and Ethel (OSA) Rosenberg, who delivered the Soviets and ENORMOZ boost in their atomic research.

18 I love the argument that, OK, they were spies but they didn't really provide much of value. As far as they knew, they were enabling Josef Stalin to get the bomb. That makes them traitors. Those who say they did a good thing, because otherwise the U.S. would have had no counterweight, confirm that the Rosenbergs were trying to strengthen our enemies because they were our enemies. Fun fact: Commie propaganda thought it was perfect to accuse us of railroading them for being Jews, since Stalin at that time was gearing up for a big purge of Jews and the Russians were big on the "what about your Negroes in the South" retort to any human rights accusations.

26 Because they didn't believe we should be the only ones with the bomb. That is the most charitable argument I've ever read.

They believe in communism to their cores: everyone should be equally as miserable. There should be no superpowers.

43 This is all borne of the same revisionism that claims the anti-soviet campaigns were due to "hysteria" rather than actual, documented cases. The same reason I'm seeing facebook posts that are rehabilitating Howard Zinn's People's history. I'm completely comfortable in saying this is all part of a coordinated movement. How else could Bernie Sanders get such support? The radical left has infiltrated EVERYTHING and are making their move. Hell, we've even got Conservative and Libertarian pundits arguing that it's just not feasible to cut spending or government. The only thing that will stop this is The Burning.

57 And remember that Khrushchev would have been much better served in two ways if he'd denied the Rosenbergs had helped.  He could claim the soviets didn't need scientific advancements from the capitalists in the west - they came up with the bomb all on their own.  And Khrushchev could also paint the US as evil murderers who killed the innocent Rosenbergs.

Three council members joined Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer in issuing two proclamations lauding Rosenberg, a Lower East Side resident, for "demonstrating great bravery" in leading a 1935 strike against the National New York Packing and Supply Co., where she worked as a clerk.

 

I'm too lazy to look it up right now, but did these fucksticks ever issue a proclamation honoring the strikers who picketed against the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory?  At least those strikers - the majority, anyway - wanted to be loyal Americans and were working to make something of themselves.

 

As opposed to the Rosenbergs, who took advantage of American generosity in order to stab her to the heart.

Well then, send them to live with your relatives.

"Farm at least your own vegetables." Not so hard. Lot of work, but, fun. Now, if you want bread, or beer, or whiskey, or flour, you need to farm acres of the same thing, and if you don't have a combine harvester, that's a lot of plowing and scything and winnowing by hand. It teaches you about farming.

Plus, you can protect a vegetable patch with one gun, and three people sleeping in shifts. To patrol a grain field, you'll need a posse. Easy to see how one thing led to another, once that debbil grain invaded our species...

179 I'm so sick of these people. The problem is, for me anyway (I've said this before), is that we don't have a proactive political militia to fight them, politically speaking. We, as people, chronicle their disgusting outrages to no end, and this can be cathartic. But we don't have warriors within the system fighting for us, inflicting damage, demoralizing them. The shit the Left gets away with every day is unbelievable and unconscionable. What a target-rich field or a politician! To fight them would of course entail fighting the media and getting ugly about it, and this seems beyond anybody's nerve or skills. Trump gets in a random bear swipe then makes kissy-face, Ted Cruz some cute speech lines, Ben Carson oh-so politely rebukes them in interviews. But we have no fu*king sword-swinging Vikings going after their fu*king Leftist hides and heads EVERY DAY. Fu*k the Republicans. Look at their farce of hearings. Planned Parenthood is in better shape now than before the hearings. And where is the reckoning for the media liars who said Carly Fiorina lied about the videos? Who on our political team is making them pay? I got into an argument on another blog yesterday with some Republican who said we absolutely, positively CANNOT sound mean or harsh or the media would make mincemeat of us and instead we just had to use humor to make fun of them. Humor? Are you kidding? They use bush-hogs on us and we use "humor"? Humor might have worked 30 years ago against addle-pated liberals. We're in a knife fight for our country. We're dealing with raging Leftists. We need political warriors with knives.

185 Also true, but what does it say about us that we're not able to beat them? It says that people prefer the easy lie over the hard truth, especially in a powerful, rich, and comfortable civilization. I believe, strongly, that civilizations are suicidal. That as we reach a point where we as a people do not need the virtues that built the live we come to enjoy, we abandon those virtues and necessarily corrode from within. That it is inevitable, unstoppable, for a civilization to self destruct.

191 From the link: For, after having brought you into the world, and nurtured and educated you, and given you and every other citizen a share in every good that we had to give, we further proclaim and give the right to every Athenian, that if he does not like us when he has come of age and has seen the ways of the city, and made our acquaintance, he may go where he pleases and take his goods with him; and none of us laws will forbid him or interfere with him. Any of you who does not like us and the city, and who wants to go to a colony or to any other city, may go where he likes, and take his goods with him. But he who has experience of the manner in which we order justice and administer the State, and still remains, has entered into an implied contract that he will do as we command him. And he who disobeys us is, as we maintain, thrice wrong: first, because in disobeying us he is disobeying his parents; secondly, because we are the authors of his education; thirdly, because he has made an agreement with us that he will duly obey our commands; and he neither obeys them nor convinces us that our commands are wrong; and we do not rudely impose them, but give him the alternative of obeying or convincing us; that is what we offer and he does neither.

192 There was no excuse for the Rosenbergs to play ignorant about what was happening in Russia. Plenty of people escaped to talk about it. Emma Goldman was one of them. Rosenberg looks all dainty like but he was a big guy and had no problems threatening his agents when they didnt obey his orders. He ran about 70+ agents - it was no small ring. Also, Ethyl was the one who convinced her sister in law and brother to steal the atom secrets.

Would full-blown American Empire in those days have been, like, enforced Little League, Levittown rambler houses all up and down the Hindu Kush, blacktop parkways in the Gobi?

You should read the book, The Forsaken: An American Tragedy in Stalin's Russia[i/] by Tim Tzouliadis.  It's all about the idiots who went looking for the workers' paradise (ever notice how "workers" want to do everthing except work?) in the Soviet Union and got thrown into gulags instead.  It's pretty much all schadenboner until you get to the part where these idiots' kids were later rounded up when they got a little older.  Really sad.  They didn't decide to go to the Soviet Union,  their commie loving parents really screwed them over.

Have the teacher bribe people to get his choices on the councils, and get decisions made. Have reports on the corruption and destruction of NGO's. Have them clearly identify human rights violators, then tell them that these nations are on human rights councils. Create a nation - lets call it Jootopia - and have it continually condemned for fighting back against attacks and terrorist strikes, while rarely condemning the attackers and terrorists. In short, teach them about the real UN, as it exists in the real world.

238 The USA is an aggressive, militaristic, imperialistic, colonialistic power. All tensions in the world can be laid at its feet. The Soviets have a reason to be paranoid and defensive - look how much damage and death they suffered in WWII. If the US would only disarm then the Soviets would see they have nothing to fear and world tensions would drop. The USA is an aggressive, militaristic, imperialistic, and colonialistic power. Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union the world has been unbalanced with an American hegemon intruding into other nations' spheres of influence - a true act of aggression of the imperialistic and colonialistic variety. It is not without reason that Iran, Russia, and China - as well as grassroots native groups such as Al Qaeda and ISIS - have resisted the American actions. The USA needs to disarm and retreat from the world, allowing local native groups the opportunity for their peoples and cultures to develop as well as showing respect for other regional powers' spheres of influence. Yeah, the codswallop the Left was pushing during the Cold War is the same as it is pushing today; only today there is an administration that actually believes the leftist spin.

It's very good, although I still don't know whether the Secretary of State is guilty--sometimes, I'm pretty sure he is, sometimes I think it might be overreaction. There's one funny section where the Soviets themselves start scrambling to see if he was one of their spies. "...They cry surrender or they cry war; they try to prevent us from discussing the other possibilities that still exist, the only possibilities, it seems to me, of ever achieving that genuine peace they are always yapping about." In many ways, that is the story of President Obama "... Our enemies and our friends together have succeeded in paralyzing us with self-doubt, and under the tutelage of all of you we have become afraid to really care, because to really care has become unfashionable, and also, of course, because to really care would impose upon us the necessity of acting in support of the things we really care for, and nobody wants us to do that anymore."

It then rebranded back to its old name of Russia... But its national debt is about 11% of GDP... where ours is well north of 100%...

276 I was in college right after the Berlin Wall came down. Most of my professors were proud Communists, and very depressed that the wrong nation won the Cold War. The biggest thing I took away from my college experience is the discovery of how influential Communism still is in the academic/intellectual world. Any academics or intellectuals MUST be Communists in order to be accepted by their peers.

48 There's this sort of alternate history Democrats USED to push that they were on the right side of the Cold War and united, but the truth was, many were secretly rooting for the Soviet Union and were devastated it lost. It's just now they feel more comfortable coming out of the closet.

285 @251 Confirmation. Good one, Lizzy.
This has to be the ultimate "Ambassador Without Portfolio."
Back in the top-hat, striped-trouser days, the first thing an ambassador did was "present his credentials." That was a formal ceremony, with actual portfolio.

Impersonating a diplomat was so impossible, a movie wouldn't depict it.

Now, you have a president without a security clearance, and a SoS with her own secret intelligence network. Credentials? What credentials?

When Elisabeth Bently went to the FBI with all the names of the spies she knew the Phily also saw the list and warned everybody. So, they escaped. That's what Rosenberg was doing when he was arrested- telling everyone to flee and giving them money to help the leave. These engineers would bring plans to weapons to their apt and spend 3 days filming it to hand over to the reds.

After Verona went public, he told us the Atomic Energy Commission had given each officer and noncom (and their wives) a briefing after they were assigned there, explaining the basics of nuclear energy, radiation safety, and what had happened with the Rosenburgs. They used it as a cautionary tale on what to watch for to prevent another such breach of security. Everyone at Los Alamos knew what had occurred and there was not the slightest bit of controversy there or at Sandia Base about the Rosenbergs' guilt.
