Another point of proof that the boorish Senator Joseph McCarthy was right about communist infiltration into our government and social institutions …
I thought that the socialist/communist craziness was limited to the current New York Mayor, but I was dumfounded to find that the New York City Council would publicly honor a convicted spy/traitor who was complicit in leaking critical nuclear weapon design information to the Russians. Apparently, in the minds of the New York City Council she deserves this honor because she was a socialist union organizer/agitator.
NEW YORK CITY COUNCIL HONORS AN EXECUTED TRAITOR TO AMERICA AND RUSSIAN SPY AS A UNION ORGANIZER AND AGITATOR …
Ethel Rosenberg, nee Ethel Greenglass, was poor and lived on New York City’s Lower East Side in the 1920s and 1930s where she excelled as a Seward Park High School student and dreamed of college. Her teachers considered her singing voice exceptional. She graduated three months before her 16th birthday but, unable to afford college, she took a clerical training course; and
WHEREAS: In 1935, at the age of 19, Ethel worked as a Clerk at the National New York Packing and Shipping Company, and, demonstrating great bravery, helped lead a strike for union recognition and a pay raise. The New York Times reported that “about 150 young women pickets moved in squads through the garment district… They lay on the pavement in front of trucks and dared the drivers to move”; and
WHEREAS: Ethel was fired and filed a claim for wrongful termination with the National Labor Relations Board, which found in her favor: “There is no allegation or evidence that she was not an efficient employee. The [company’s] antagonism to Ethel Greenglass undoubtedly arose by virtue of the fact that she was active in organizing the Union.” Ethel remained active in union organizing and used her singing talents to raise funds. While performing, she met Julius Rosenberg, whom she later married; and
WHEREAS: During World War II, Ethel joined the East Side Defense Council as its only full-time volunteer. It was the first such organization in the nation and became a model for others. She organized blood donation drives and gave speeches on the importance of the war effort. Her first son, Michael, was born during the war and her second son, Robert, was born after it ended; and
WHEREAS: In August 1950, Ethel was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Espionage. FBI documents reveal that chief prosecution witnesses David and Ruth Greenglass provided no evidence against Ethel Rosenberg in their initial confessions. The Greenglass’s recently released Grand Jury testimony also excludes mention of Ethel’s involvement. FBI documents show that members of the
WHEREAS: National Security Agency files indicate that the Soviet Union never gave Ethel Rosenberg a code name and that she, therefore, was not an active espionage agent. And that shortly before the Rosenbergs’ executions, an FBI document listed questions to ask Julius Rosenberg if he cooperated. The FBI did not create such a list for Ethel and did not ask if Ethel was involved. Instead, one question on the list was: “Was your wife cognizant of your activities?” Since despite this, the government wrongfully executed Ethel Rosenberg; now therefore
BE IT KNOWN: That we, the undersigned Members of the New York City Council, honor the life and memory of Ethel Rosenberg in observance of the 100th anniversary of her birth.
In a companion proclamation, Gale Brewer, City Council Member from District 6 announces “Ethel Rosenberg Day of Justice in the Borough of Manhattan.” …
Gale A. Brewer’s statement:
We are proud to acknowledge those individuals and organizations that have remained committed to improving our city and vibrantly enriching the community; and
WHEREAS, Ethel Rosenberg, née Ethel Greenglass, was born in 1915, grew up on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and excelled at Seward Park High School, wishing to go to college but taking a clerical training course instead because she could not afford college; and
WHEREAS, Ms. Rosenberg found work as a clerk at the National New York Packing and Shipping Company and, showing great bravery, helped lead a strike for union recognition and a pay raise, for which she was fired; and
WHEREAS, Ms. Rosenberg filed a claim for wrongful termination with the newly formed National Labor Relations Board, which found in her favor, and remained active in union organizing, using her singing talents to raise funds at benefit performances—and it was here she met Julius Rosenberg, whom she later married; and
WHEREAS, during World War II, Ms. Rosenberg became the only full-time volunteer at the East Side Defense Council—the first such organization in the nation and a model for others—organizing blood drives and giving speeches on the importance of the war effort; and
WHEREAS, Ms. Rosenberg’s first son, Michael, was born during the war, and her second son, Robert, was born after it ended; and
WHEREAS, in August 1950, Ms. Rosenberg was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Espionage, but FBI documents reveal that chief prosecution witnesses—David and Ruth Greenglass—provided no evidence against Ms. Rosenberg in their initial confessions, and Grand Jury testimony of the Greenglasses recently released excludes mention of Ms. Rosenberg’s involvement; and
WHEREAS, FBI documents show that the prosecution determined that Ms. Rosenberg should be convicted and given a “stiff sentence” so she could be used as a “lever” to induce her husband to cooperate, and that after this strategy was devised, first Ruth and then David Greenglass provided oral testimony against Ms. Rosenberg—testimony on which the judge relied to sentence Ms. Rosenberg to death; and
WHEREAS, shortly before the Rosenbergs were executed in 1953, an FBI document listed questions to ask Julius Rosenberg if he cooperated—one of which was “Was your wife cognizant of your activities?”—but there was no such list created for Ms. Rosenberg; and
WHEREAS, in 2001, David Greenglass admitted that his testimony was false, and National Security Agency files indicate that the Soviet Union never gave Ms. Rosenberg a codename—meaning that she was not an active espionage agent;
Now therefore, I, Gale A. Brewer, do hereby recognize the injustice suffered by Ethel Rosenberg and her family, and on the occasion of her 100th birthday on Monday, September 28th, 2015, proclaim “Ethel Rosenberg Day of Justice in the Borough of Manhattan.”
NYC Council Honors Ethel Rosenberg for ‘Great Bravery’ -- “A lot of hysteria was created around anti-communism."
Ethel Rosenberg, who was executed with her husband Julius for treason in 1953, was honored this week by the City Council on what would have been her 100th birthday, the New York Post reports.
Three council members joined Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer in issuing two proclamations praising 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 conspiring with her husband to pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union.
“A lot of hysteria was created around anti-communism and how we had to defend our country, and these two people were traitors and we rushed to judgment and they were executed,” said Councilman Daniel Dromm, who is unsurprisingly a Democrat.
Rush to judgment? The Rosenbergs were "motivated by loyalty to the Soviet Union, not opposition to fascism as their defenders claim," explains historian Ron Radosh. The Rosenberg spy ring "provided vast quantities of technical data to the Soviet Union that helped it achieve near parity with the United States in the skies over Korea and Vietnam."
"Rosenberg himself gave his Soviet handler Alexander Feklisov the proximity fuse, which was used to track Francis Gary Powers’ U-2 plane and to shoot it down during the Eisenhower administration," Radosh writes. The Rosenberg network "passed on the 12,000 page blueprints for the Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star, airborne radars for nighttime navigation and bombing," and for innovations in radar technology.

Notice that the award is for taking action on behalf of a socialistic union and attempts to whitewash actual treason against the United States on behalf of a foreign power. More revisionist history that is being used to teach our children that socialism, communism, homosexuality, and Islamic terrorism are just ordinary occurrences in American life and should be accepted without question.
Many believe that Ethel Rosenberg was innocent because "she only typed the notes." She knew what she was typing, the key players involved, and what the political objective was -- making her as guilty as her husband and other co-conspirators.
And, these useful idiots are proud to aid in the destruction of the United States and its institutions from within our borders. With representatives like this, we do not need enemies and sleeper cells – they are already here and openly active.
Bottom line …
You can no longer trust the democrat party – now the neo-Communist Party in the United States – to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution or protect and defend the safety and security of America from her enemies, both foreign and domestic.
We are so screwed.
