Weather Underground, Bad ass Terrorists? Nope

You don't need a McCain to know the Weather!
My, my I never thought I would be writing about Weather
underground in the twenty first century. Bill Ayers? How about
Bernadine Dohrn? His wife! How about the rest of the crew? Mark Rudd,
Jeff Jones, John Jacobs, Terry Robins, Kathy Bouldin (There was a made
for TV movie about her) Linda Evans, Howie Machtinger and others. There
were many members of the Weather Underground; Sara Palin may have shot a
moose with one. I mean, they never talk about their past unless you pry
it out of them.
Now they are using Bill Ayers name to slander Obama because Bill let
him use his living room to launch Obama's senatorial campaign. Obama
does not know everybody's biography, to Obama, Bill was a nice
middle age white guy. Members of the new left movement only know Bill
Ayers. He was not Famous like Abby Hoffman. Hell, people barely remember
Jerry Rubin. Now, let's talk about the Weather Underground.
Weather Underground a terrorist group? Yeah, in their minds they
were. They romanticized Communist guerilla groups in the 3rd world. They
wanted to be the American version of Viet Cong. However, they just
upper-middle class white kids that were playing red revolutionaries. If
the truth to be told they were more vandals than terrorists. When
they bombed the U.S Capitol building after president Nixon bombed Laos
in May of 1970, they placed the bomb in the men's room for tourist.
There was not much damage with the exception of some sinks and toilets.
Somebody made an anonymous phone call to the DC cops to warn people to
vacate the building. Nobody was hurt. After the action, they released
their famous communiqué to the media, which was just amateurish
communist propaganda. This was the same group that busts Timothy Leary
out of a MINIMUM-security prison in San Luis Obispo California. All they
needed was a wire cutter and a security guard reading the sports page.
Most of the left of that decade didn't like the Weather
Underground; they called them a bunch of adventurous teenyboppers. The
Weather Underground wanted to instigate a revolution in the USA. The
only they instigated was laughter by other groups. Besides damaging
property, other wise they were harmless. That is why most courts dropped
the charges against them.
Don't get me wrong, at the time; I was their cheerleader. They
were my outlaws. I was 16 years old back then but now I have mature. By
the late 70's, they realized that the USA was not in a revolutionary
situation, so they surrendered to authorities and that was that. What
drove them to these acts of vandalism? Leftist paranoia, at the time
they thought that Nixon was going to bring a fascist state and they
would be the underground resistance. Well the Nixon administration
imploded and everybody went to the Disco.
Where is a Weather Underground when we really need them?
