Bill Ayers Weather Underground,
Then and now...
Then and now...
Before There Was ISIS, There Was the Weather Underground.
Like the radical left-wing domestic terrorists befriended two decades ago by Barack Hussein Obama, the totalitarian mass murderers of the Islamic State are reportedly determined to kill millions of Americans. Slaughtering Americans by the millions was a key objective of the Weather Underground Organization (WUO), which was led during the Vietnam War era by Obama's close Chicagoland friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers, among other individuals. Ayers described the Weatherman philosophy as "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."
He was delighted in the 1980s when riot incitement and conspiracy charges against him were thrown out. "Guilty as sin, free as a bird," Ayers gloated. "America is a great country," he said for the first and only time in his life. Obama infamously began his career in electoral politics at a fundraiser in 1995 in the home of the unrepentant small-c communist terrorist bomber Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, another former WUO leader.
The Weather Underground plan was ambitious – 25 million Americans deemed unsusceptible to communist brainwashing were to be liquidated – but relatively modest compared to the 500 million souls in the Western world that Islamic State aims to vaporize with nuclear weapons.
German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, who spent 10 anxious days living in Islamic State-held Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria with the jihadists, wants the world to know that the terrorist group is deadly serious about unleashing a "nuclear tsunami" on those who oppose its efforts to create an Islamic caliphate. According to Todenhöfer, a 75-year-old Christian and pacifist, "[t]his is the largest religious cleansing strategy that has ever been planned in human history."
"Not just head-cutting. I'm talking about the strategy of religious cleansing. That's their official philosophy. They are talking about 500 million people who have to die."
Islamic State "fighters are much smarter and more dangerous than our leaders believe. In the Islamic State, there is an almost palpable enthusiasm and confidence of victory, which I have not seen in many war zones."
To date, the West remains clueless as to how this threat is to be addressed.
Islamic State warriors are convinced that their totalitarian faith and demonstrative brutality will help them move mountains, and that their military victories justify their confidence. In congenital denial about the threat Islamic militancy poses to free nations, Obama said a year ago that "ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim."
Obama told the United Nations this week that the Islamic State can be vanquished with tough love and social programs. "Ideologies are not defeated with guns," the historically illiterate president told U.N. delegates. "They are defeated by better ideas – a more attractive and compelling vision."
Which brings us back to Obama buddy Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground.
In his 1976 book, Bringing Down America, Grathwohl summed up why he took the unusual step of joining the Weather Underground in order to undermine it. He feared that these New Left revolutionary communists might actually make headway with their totalitarian program.
"The Weathermen’s government will be one of total control over each individual in the society," he wrote. "In Weathermen terminology, this new society will be 'one people working in total unity.'" "This means an elimination of all the individual freedoms we are accustomed to having; it was my absolute belief in the freedoms offered by our form of government that drove me to fight the Weathermen in the first place."
Grathwohl attended a kind of Wannsee Conference at which Weather Underground operatives plotted the murder of 25 million Americans. At the Wannsee meeting in 1942, Hitler's cabinet members and senior bureaucrats set in motion the “Final solution to the Jewish question,” which led to the systematic murder of six million Jews.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious. In its heyday, WUO bombed the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and various other sites of national importance throughout the 1970s. One of its senior leaders, trust fund baby Bill Ayers, now portrayed by the media as an innocuous education reformer, told the New York Times in 2001 that he didn’t regret what he did and he’d likely do it again.
Ayers denies that the Weather Underground's Wannsee Conference ever happened and claims that the WUO never killed anyone. If that's true, it wasn't for lack of trying. One nail bomb that was supposed to be used to murder U.S. servicemen blew up in the Greenwich Village townhouse where it was being made.
In 1970, Ayers’ then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, “tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.” Notably, Ayers' fingerprints were found at the bomb-making site, along with an assortment of anti-personnel weapons, stabbing implements, C-4 plastic explosive[s], and dozens of Marxist-Leninist publications.
The Weather Underground also reportedly tried to get its hands on weapons of mass destruction, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jack Anderson reported in his "Washington Merry-Go-Round" column in 1970 ("Weatherman Seeking BW Germs," Washington Post, Nov. 20, 1970).
When Obama was campaigning in 2008, commentator Andrew C. McCarthy ridiculed Ayers for claiming that the Weathermen never hurt or even tried to hurt anybody. These savages wanted to kill massively. That they killed only a few people owes to our luck and their incompetence, not design. They, and the Democrat politicians who now befriend and serve them can rationalize that all they want, but those are the facts.
