A Visit with Bernadine and Bill

Ben Smith 22 February 2008 One Comment

In 1995, State Senator Alice Palmer introduced her chosen successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district’s influential liberals at the home of two well known figures on the local left: William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

While Ayers and Dohrn may be thought of in Hyde Park as local activists, they’re better known nationally as two of the most notorious — and unrepentant — figures from the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement.

    Nazi war criminals get hunted down with all the intensity and fervor deserved; likewise, the Wiseguys; domestic terrorists who built bombs in Greenwich Village with intent to murder soldiers and comlicity in more than 25 bombings as well as the murder of two NY State Police Officers and a Brinks guard enjoy academic coccooning and being feted by tweedy goofballs.

    Live long and free under the Laws you would destroy, but expect ‘slight regard’ and ridicule when you preach Justice and Family.
