OMG: Guess who nominated Kushner for that honorary degree....

From the bizarre to the totally ridiculous... guess who nominated Tony Kushner for that honorary degree (Hat Tip: Dan F). Hint: He's the one on the right in the picture.
It seems that Dr. Michael Meeropol, the son of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, is one of two professors at John Jay College who nominated Tony Kushner for this honorary degree. Meeropol is a professor of economics.

No, I do not think that the Rosenbergs should be prosecuted over and over again; I do believe that Julius Rosenberg has been proven guilty over and over again. Meeropol’s brother Robert has admitted that his father was guilty of being a spy for the Soviet Union.

Meeropol is currently a Visiting Professor of Economics at John Jay. Both he and Professor Amy Green, also at John Jay, nominated Tony Kushner.


Right now, the left-wing CUNY faculty are exulting in their spurious “win.” They expect a huge media turnout on June 3, graduation day, to further magnify and glorify their demonization of Israel.

CUNY Board of Trustee member, Jeffrey Wiesenfeld has been deluged with a massive amount of hate mail.
I think my mother went to her grave thinking the Rosenbergs had been framed (she told me so many times when I was younger). But my mother, may she rest in peace, was strongly pro-Israel despite being a Democrat. She would not be happy about this.

If like me, you have never seen or read Kushner's plays, you might be asking what's the connection between Tony Kushner and the Rosenbergs? Here's the answer:
While scholarly debate over the Rosenberg case continues, their names remain a touchstone for many. Playwright Tony Kushner, for instance, offered a powerful portrayal of Ethel Rosenberg's strength and humanity in his landmark production Angels in America.
Oy vey.... More here.

Why is Meeropol a tenured prof at CUNY? Is he a brilliant exponent of Marxist economics? I thought the fall of the USSR ended that!

Is Meeropol a brilliant professor of Marxist economics? Why is he a professor at CUNY? Who voted for him? Let's get to the bottom of this.

If he is so clearly proud of his parents achievements and wishes to carry their teachings on, why does he call himself the ludicrous "Meeropol"?? Or is that a taqqiya-like tool for advancing marxism?
