Is this lady saying that we shouldn't have been afraid of communism 50 years ago?

"The Rosenberg case illustrates the excesses that can occur when we're afraid," said Meredith Fuchs, general counsel to the National Security Archive, which also fought for the material's release.

"In the 1950s, we were afraid of communism. Today, we're afraid of terrorism. We don't want to make the same mistakes we made 50 years ago," Fuchs said.

Um, gee, I guess I'd trade the death of Ethel, a devout commie and defender of Stalin whether she typed atomic secrets for the Soviets or not, for the deaths of the millions who were died under Stalin, if given the choice. 50 years ago was exactly the time that we should have been afraid of communism. That was when most of the intellectual elites in power had fallen for it.

The mistakes that were made 50 years ago were made by the American communists and Stalin's apologists on the left in this country. Actors such as Paul Robeson and Frances Farmer and directors in numbers too numerous to name. Trade unionists, in particular, have so much blood on their hands, I am surprised that any of them can sleep nights. Perhaps the purported suicides by "blacklisted" Hollywood writers were really the result of their feelings of guilt and not depression over not being allowed to write movies.

We're about to elect a crypto-marxist president and we shouldn't be afraid of communism, NOW?!

I read the NYT about Sobell's confession, and couldn't figure the quote they put in from the NSA man- how on earth could a guilty man admitting his guilt suggest that the prosecutors who presented the case were in the wrong?

I just love the way the old lefties are STILL trying to say that trying to give the atomic bomb to the planets champion mass slaughterer was no big deal.

Isn't it interesting, too, how often these "railroaded, innocent" poster children of injustice turn out to have done it after all?
