Ronald Radosh is one of the nation's pre-eminent historians, but he is blacklisted from American universities because he wrote a book concluding that the Rosenbergs were guilty – a few years before decrypted Soviet cables were released proving they were guilty...
American college students are learning history from people who believe the Rosenbergs were innocent idealists and Radosh is a CIA agent. (How are the grades for students who write term papers saying the Rosenbergs were guilty?)
The majestic Ann Coulter (against whom I will not say a cross word, despite the cowardly abandonment of her by almost everyone else on the Right) goes off on another ferocious polemic against the neo-Nazi Leftist domination of our universities. Here's the best part:
Obtaining a teaching position was not so difficult for Joel Kovel, who holds the prestigious "Alger Hiss Professor of Social Studies" chair at Bard College. With superb timing, in 1994, just one year before the Venona cables were declassified, Kovel published a book describing anti-communism as a psychiatric condition. Appropriately, Kovel dedicated the book to his chair's namesake, Soviet spy Alger Hiss. Making paranoid accusations based on his own neurotic impulses, Kovel explained that America's anti-communism was a form of anti-Semitism.
He should know. In a 2002 article, Kovel called the West Bank "a huge concentration camp," and demanded to know: "Why does the Zionist community, in raging against terrorism, forget that three of its prime ministers within the last 20 years, Begin, Shamir and Sharon, are openly recognized to have been world-class terrorists and mass murderers?"
Once again, despite her intemperance, she's absolutely right. Without any discussion, debate, or even much notice, our major universities have been overtaken by incompetant, psychopathic buffoons hired solely on the basis of ideology. Our institutions of higher learning are totalitarian archipelagos in an otherwise free nation, Stalinist death camps of the mind in which all who will not genuflect before the Leftwing gods are doomed to the cold, Siberian night forever. The damage already done by these miscreants is immense: the rewriting of our history, the debasement of our national culture, the brainwashing of millions of children by their manipulation of the public school curriculum. For a host of reasons, the American people cannot understand this phenomenon or the danger we face from it. Thank God Ann Coulter, David Horowitz, and the rest are here to sound the wakeup call.
