For every move the Government makes, there will be some people that are for it, and others that are against it. The beauty of our great nation is that we have the right to voice our opinion in support of, or against any particular topic. Although, one could argue that those rights are slowly dwindling; but that is the topic of another post entirely.
Back in the 1960’s the United States was fighting a war in Vietnam. As is always the case when it comes to war, many people were against this war. There were constant protests and many people joined those marches for peace. As with any movement, there were groups that took their opposition to the war a little too far. You even see them these days during the Occupy movements, May Day marches, and so on, the ones that incite violence, riots, destruction of public/private property and anarchy. We just saw this in Seattle.
Back in that era though, there was this man named William Ayers. Ayers was not only the member of a domestic terrorist group, but he eventually became the founder of his own group. The Weather Underground, is also known as the Weatherman, though they included women too. PC? Not!
This domestic terrorist group committed a series of bombings in the 1960′s and 1970′s. They bombed the NY police headquarters, the United States Capitol building and even the Pentagon! Not only that, they have also been suspected, though never officially charged, with a San Francisco Police Department Park station bombing that proved fatal for one police officer, Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell and injured more than eight other officers, some severely.
Given these facts and the amazingly long list of bomb attacks that this group carried out, I’d like to know not only why this man is free and walking amongst us law abiding citizens, but how did he go on to become an educator and even write a book about his actions? There have even been rumors that he and President Obama are friends! Oh, but he’s not the only one: his wife Bernadine Dohrn, who was obviously tied to the Weather Underground domestic terrorist group, was a law professor in this country!
These two individuals claim that they never killed anyone, but the fact of the matter is that the statement may be false. Furthermore the act of planting and setting off bombs in a public place should be viewed as attempted murder and terrorist activity to state the least. Yet these people are free and educating our future leaders. Writing books called The Fugitive Years. What the heck is wrong with people today?
It gets worse my friends: recently Kathy Boudin was appointed as an adjunct professor at the prestigious Columbia University. You probably won’t know who Kathy is based on her faculty bio though, it won’t show her storied past. But this woman was involved in the death of two police officers during the armed robbery of an armored truck.
Are you getting all this? This woman served over 20 years in prison on charges of FELONY MURDER. I’ll ask again, for any far left readers here, are you getting all this? She is a CONVICTED cop killer, and she has been hired to teach at Columbia University. What the heck is wrong with people today? REALLY!
The bull crap premise that apologists are using is that we shouldn’t deny ex-cons a second chance at life. They say that they served their time and that they should be allowed a chance to live a normal life. You know what? I am somewhat understanding of this concept. If a person commits a crime and pays their debt to society, I’m ok with giving them a second chance at life. However I expect some common sense to be exercised when employing these individuals. A second chance at life does not mean a second chance to commit a heinous crime.
Question, would you allow a child rapist to get a job as a teacher or a baby sitter around young children? Would you allow a thief to work as a jewelry salesman or the treasurer of a cash only business? Well, actually, given our current administration and the bull crap, politically correct garbage they spew, they probably would allow it, they might even force it. But we level headed individuals can all agree that it is neither the right or smart thing to do.
That being said, why would you allow someone that was the member of a terrorist group to have access to young impressionable minds? Why would you allow someone that went to prison for the FELONY MURDER of police officers to have access to young minds? Why would anyone allow this? It is beyond stupid, ridiculous and a terrible slap in the face to the families and friends of those victims. It is sickening. I’ll ask again, What the heck is wrong with people today?
It is my personal belief that a murderer should never, ever be able to take a breath of air as a free person. Never. Seeing as though our government has granted this killer her freedom, I agree that she has to somehow earn a living. I’m a reasonable man. As I have no choice but to accept that they freed her, I can accept that she needs to eat.
What I cannot accept is that this murderous trash is being allowed to educate our young people. The universities are already littered with leftist extremist. Adding members of terrorist groups and cop killers to the roster is just another huge black eye for our nation and our educational system. No wonder that we are so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to education. I bet China is laughing at the level of stupidity on display here.
I wonder, 20 years from now, will the Boston terrorists have a job teaching at Harvard? Would you guys be ok with that? If the answer to that is no, why in the world would you allow this woman, or any member of the Weather Underground terrorist group to do so? Just because you were not around to experience it like you were the Boston bombings, that doesn’t mean that it is ok or any less terrible.
Oh, and Robert Redford, shame on you, man, SHAME ON YOU. Making a movie attempting to paint the actions of this murderer in a nicer light? I will do everything in my power to make sure that people are aware of this despicable behavior. Also, shame on all of the universities that are providing these criminals a safe haven and granting them access to our young, bright minds. You are disgusting and you sicken me. I wonder if you’d be so inclined to forgive her if your father was the officer that was murdered by Boudin. Disgusting!
