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.”
