Occupiers Meet With Who’s-Who of Former Weather Underground Domestic Terrorists…

You know what they say about, birds of a feather.

Via Breitbart:

A recent meeting titled The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street, held in a small city in upstate New York, was billed as a mundane book event to celebrate U.S. “political prisoner” David Gilbert’s new memoir, Love and Struggle.

The Weather Underground — Alive, Well, and Mentoring the Occupy Movement

Highlights include:

  • The meeting was designed to discuss common struggles between the Weather Underground and Occupy Wall Street and, in particular, the shared vision between David Gilbert (another member serving jail time for his role in the Brinks murders) and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
  • In attendance or serving on the panel were five major players in the domestic terrorism group: Naomi Jaffe, Jeff Jones, Eleanor Stein, Suzanne Ross, and Kathy Boudin.
  • All of the above named have been involved in some of the most radical elements of the Weather Underground, including assaults on police officers, bomb plots, and murders.
  • All had been involved with the notorious Bill Ayers, some of which lived in a San Francisco “bomb factory” that several entities have claimed was used in the San Francisco police station bombing that killed Officer Brian McDonnell.
  • A former Weather Underground member turned FBI informant makes several interesting observations about the meeting, including his assertion that the group hasn’t “changed the color of any of their stripes even after all of these years.” He also adds, “It makes me sick to watch and listen to this kind of BS, especially when I realize that 100 years ago or less, these people would all be in prison or shot as traitors.”

I wonder what William Ayers is doing…

Ayers, Bill via Discover The Networks

  • Leader of the Weather Underground, a domestic terrorist group of the 1960s and ’70s
  • “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”
  • Participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972
  • Worked as a professor of education at the University of Illinois from 1987-2010

Bill Ayers was born in December 1944 and was raised in a Chicago suburb. In the mid-1960s he taught at a radical alternative school — part of the “free school movement” — where students addressed teachers by their first names, and where no grades or report cards were given. By age 21, Ayers had become the director of that school. In 1968 he earned a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Michigan.

In the late Sixties, Ayers became a leader of the Weather Underground (WU), a splinter faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Characterizing WU as “an American Red Army,” Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.” One of Ayers’ fellow WU leaders was Bernardine Dohrn, the woman who would later become his wife.

In a July 29, 1969 speech which he delivered at the University of Oregon, Ayers boasted of SDS’s role in the Venceremos Brigades, a project initiated by the Cuban intelligence agency to recruit and train American leftists as “brigadistas” capable of waging guerrilla warfare.

Ayers was an active participant in the 1969 “Days of Rage” riots in Chicago, which were led by WU’s antecedent group, Weatherman. In the mayhem, nearly 300 members of the organization engaged in vandalism, arson, and vicious attacks against police and civilians alike. Their immediate objective was to spread their anti-war, anti-American message. Their long-term goal, however, was to cause the collapse of the United States and to create, in its stead, a new communist society over which they themselves would rule. With regard to those Americans who might refuse to embrace communism, Ayers and his comrades — including Bernardine Dohrn, Mark Rudd, Linda Evans, Jeff Jones, and numerous others — proposed that such resisters should be sent to reeducation camps and killed. The terrorists estimated that it would be necessary to eliminate some 25 million people in this fashion, so as to advance the revolution.

Food for thought:

Barack Obama’s Lost Years:  The pages of the Hyde Park Herald and the Chicago Defender thus offer entrée into Obama’s heretofore hidden world.  What they portray is a Barack Obama sharply at variance with the image of the post-racial, post-ideological, bipartisan, culture-war-shunning politician familiar from current media coverage and purveyed by the Obama campaign.  As details of Obama’s early political career emerge into the light, his associations with such radical figures as Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Reverend James Meeks, Bill Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn look less like peculiar instances of personal misjudgment and more like intentional political partnerships.  At his core, in other words, the politician chronicled here is profoundly race-conscious, exceedingly liberal, free-spending even in the face of looming state budget deficits, and partisan.
