View Full Version : 60's organizations that have been sanitized
this newspaper by the way is NOT conservative but known for it's excellent investigative reporting.

Let's all hope they keep working on this, and finally get enough evidence to bring it to trial, which would wipe that smug look off of Ayers face for a long time, and carry on into the 2010 election.
Glad to see you back, missed your reports about the border. Did read an article a few years ago that the yearly influx of illegal immigrants from mainland China is around 100,000. Good bit of them are off loaded up on the west coast of Canada and then the trip south begins from there. Supposedly they go quite a bit inland and then turn south and come in through some pretty rough country where there is very little if any interdiction.
Thanks for posting that. It really brings back old times!
Some of those people I knew, sort of. Mark Rudd for one. Bernardine, they said, was one of the most beautiful women in the world. Guys would do anything, just to get close to her. Never met her myself. My own thought at the time, as a recent veteran, was they just didn't have what it would take to pull off a real revolution, and would fold up like a cheap suitcase if they had to do the things necessary to face down the power of the government.
They themselves rejected the advice and tutelage they could have got from the old-school reds. Despite all their failings, it was the old-line CPUSA types who had the discipline needed to pull off what the Weather and all those other groups said they were gonna do. Discipline was not a leading characteristic of '60s-era political activists.
But I rant. As the article notes, some are dead, some are in prison, some are homeless transients... and some have returned to their roots and become bourgeois college professors. In my mind, their worst crime was this: they weren't really serious.
Bombing and murder seem pretty serious to me!
I guess what I mean is that, yeah they were doing serious things, but it was all just a big game to them. OK, I'm done playing, I guess I'll just go back and get on with my upper-middle class life. They could just walk and let other prople clean up after them.
