**A Post By Shifra**

Remember that “dull headache” I got after reading about Jada Pinkett Smith’s financing a movie celebrating “icon” Angela Davis? 

Well, now it’s a full blown “head explosion.”

via The Weekly Standard:

People have been  outraged to learn that Kathy Boudin, imprisoned for her role in the 1981 Brinks armored car robbery and murders in New York and paroled a decade ago, now holds an adjunct professorship in the school of social work at Columbia University, where she has been lecturing since 2008….The daughter of a famous left-wing lawyer and the niece of the radical journalist I. F. Stone, she dropped out of Bryn Mawr to live and study in the Soviet Union, then joined the terrorists of the Weather Underground, bombing the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, various civic and commercial sites in New York and Chicago—and ultimately themselves, in the famous 1970 explosion of a townhouse bomb factory in Greenwich Village.

Boudin and a handful of comrades (three of whom were killed in the blast) had been making bombs for detonation at a soldiers’ dance at nearby Fort Dix. Boudin was injured, but survived—and then became a fugitive for more than a decade until she and fellow Weathermen and members of the Black Liberation Army robbed a Brinks armored truck in Rockland County, New York, in 1981. Boudin and friends shot and killed one guard and two policemen, and wounded another guard. This time Boudin was captured, was offered a plea bargain, and served 19 years in prison….

For those who were not yet born, or were too young to remember, the 60’s probably looks like a “fun” decade.

That is not at all my recollection.

It was a time of chaos.

On campuses,  and in the streets (race riots).

Assassinations. (Robert Kennedy was killed eight weeks after MLK).

At the end of the nightly news hour, the list of the day’s soldiers killed in the Vietnam.

And, domestic terrorists. Like Kathy Boudin. And her friends Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn.

You can read details of Kathy Boudin’s terrorist activities at Breitbart.

But I’m warning you.

You’re going to have a “head explosion.”

    Yikes! It seems like sooooo long ago, but reading up on these guys, my mind does a quick flash back, and I remember the terror they inspired at the time.

    Thanks, LJ, for your tweet, reminding me of this 60’s song. (Remember how it was *always* on the radio?)

    Thanks for the post Shifra. Maybe it’s amusing to some people to try and re-animate these monsters. We already have a brain scrambled 60’s diorama in DC.

    Many thanks Shifra for your posting! I researched links about Professor Boudin and noticed Columbia University seems very honored to have such a humanitarian on their staff. The specifics of Professor Boudin’s women’s prison involvement seems extensive. I have friends that are active in Bridges, a women’s prison ministry. The Bridges Program touches lives of women that have been in prison in ETERNAL ways that go beyond words. I can only pray that Professor Boudin is affecting the prisoners & college students that she is mentoring in a truly positive way. Forgive me for my doubts on that matter. The college students & the women prisoners that Kathy Boudin has personal contact with, may have completely open minds to the words she says. Her words could prove to be a tragedy or a blessing in the lives of those she mentors. Knowing her past, makes it a real stretch for me to trust that she will be a positive influence. The platform she has now with students & women in prison is a gigantic responsibility for her. I hope the institutions that have put her in these responsible positions know that they too are responsible for the words she says & how those words affect the students & prisoners.

    The left romanticizes these people and the 60’s, thats why its so hilarious to see 67 and 70 year olds still dressing and acting like the hippies they were.I remember watching the 68 Democratic convention with my Dad when riots broke out and my father said “whats happening with these kids?” It was too hard for a WW2 patriotic vet to think people hated America. And to think these traitors are now respected. I blame the sex, drugs and rock n roll. Oh also the commies.

    It was easy to choose a side when I saw these knuckleheads waving the Vietcong flag on my college campus.
    “…an adjunct prefessorship…” ?
    The inmates are truly running the asylum.

    Shifra, I too remember the ’60’s & ’70’s….not a peaceful time. Riots, racism, wars, The Underground. ugh.

  9. Patricia says:

    Many, many things to have “head explosions” over this week and many weeks ago. The 60’s were a fun time for the clueless, young people of which I regret being one.

    Thanks for the great post Shifra – onward!

    Brandt: You never went to college…

    The Dude: Oh, no I did, but I spent most of my time occupying various administration buildings… smoking a lot of thai stick… breaking into the ROTC… and bowling. To tell you the truth Brandt, I don’t remember most of it.

    The hedge of God’s protection on this nation seems to be diminishing. Just look at what is happening right before our very eyes, and is only getting worse. It’s no wonder people commit such outrageous crimes, there is no accountability for their actions. We need to pray for our nation. Thanks Shifra for the post.

  12. Kitten says:

    Great reminder of her sins of the past, Shifra. I don’t think she has repented, nor is she repentant. It’s true, where there is life, there is hope. I just hope she goes away.

    Ok, I’ll state the obvious: Why is she allowed to teach our kids?

    As Tammy would say, people like this should be scorned in our society. To think this woman, and others like her, have been given positions of power which they will use to poison the minds of our kids in Universities with their communist/liberal/socialist rhetoric and agenda is disturbing. She is essentially recruiting for the cause of bringing America to her knees (from the inside). They’re fighting for our kids and looking to start their indoctrination at younger and younger ages, at the pre-school level even. By the time they get out of college, they’re unrecognizable. And we wonder why the culture is declining.
