Not in Our Name project.
They are SDS/Weatherman.
From FBI Files:
Weatherman or Weather Underground Organization, is a "revolutionary organization of communist men and women" formed by members of the Students for a Democratic Society or SDS. They were originally called the Revolutionary Youth Movement. They advocated the overthrow of our government and capitalism. They carried out a campaign of bombings, jailbreaks, and riots in 1969-1976.
The group derived their name from Bob Dylan's song lyrics from "Subterranean Homesick Blues", which were, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", I use to see that quote at the bottom of their periodical, New Left Notes, when I use to work at a periodical distribution company.
Their first event, in 1969, was the "Days of Rage" in Chicago. They blew up a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Riot. They announced at a convention that they supported Charles Manson. The rally failed to draw as many participants (300) as they had hoped. They did lead a riot through Chicago's business district, smashing windows and cars. 6 were shot and 70 arrested. The conflict went on for a few days.
1970, after the shooting by police of Black Panther Fred Hampton, the group issued a Declaration of War against the United States government, changing its name to the "weather underground organization", adopting fake IDs, and pursuing covert activities only. These initially included plans for a bombing of a US military noncommissioned officers' dance at Fort Dix. But when three Underground members died in an accidental explosion while preparing the bomb in a Greenwich Village, New York City safe house, other cells re-evaluated their plans and decided to pursue only non-lethal projects.
This group released a number of manifestos and declarations, while conducting a series of bombings. These attacked the U.S. Capitol, The Pentagon, police and prison buildings, and the rebuilt Haymarket statue again, among other targets. The group took measures to avoid any loss of life as a result of these bombings, issuing warnings to evacuate the building ahead of time via phone. They also took a $25,000 payment from a drugs group called The Brotherhood of Eternal Love to break LSD advocate Timothy Leary out of prison, transporting him to Algeria. They remained largely successful at avoiding the police and the FBI.
In the mid-to-late 1970s, the group began dissolving, as many members turned themselves in to the police, and others moved onto other armed revolutionary groups. Very few served prison sentences, since the evidence gathered against them, by the FBI's COINTELPRO program, was inadmissable in court, due to the illegal methods used to obtain it.
Famous members of the Weather Underground include Kathy Boudin, Mark Rudd, Terry Robbins, David Gilbert, and the still-married couple Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers.
Many former Weathermen have re-integrated into society, without necessarily repudiating their original intent. Bill Ayers, now a Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, said in a September 11, 2001 New York Times profile "I don't regret setting bombs. I believe we didn't do enough."

If you aren't supporting Harriet Miers, take some time to do a search of BUSHCOMMISSION.ORG. Not a site search. A search to see where info is pulled from:
Make sure if you are not on the side of supporting Miers, it isn't information that came from SDS, Not In Our Name, MoveOn.org, of the NLG.
I've trusted Bush's pick on her since about the 4th or 5th day of his announcement. I will continue to trust his judgement on her pick.
Info ping. New left agenda domain .
Personally I am so very tired of ALL the nattering nabobs and their rhetoric that I've just been tuning it out.
Must be the reason why National Review is against her ~ these guys were undoubtedly William F. Buckley's MJ dealers ~ probably still are, eh?!
Yep, you got me. I'm a Commie.
Oh, by the way, did you support the defeat of Nazi Germany in WWII?
What? You did? Guess what? You're a Commie too, since the Soviet Union was our ally!
Welcome to the Commie club, comrade!
Buckley belongs to Not In Our Name
Sorry, I wasn't born then.
Hey you know what, I bet some of those organizations support breathing as well. Better hold our breath.
It seems there is good indication she is pro-life. But we have absolutely no idea how she would vote on gun rights, property rights(overturning Kelo vs. New London), affirmative action, State's rights, or any number off issues that are important to conservatives. After how hard we worked to elect Republicans in 2004, we deserve better then this.
Applying that logic, Hitler was a vegetarian, therefore vegetarians are Nazis.
Just because some people oppose Miers doesn't mean they're allied with the Forces of Darkness like MoveOn.org or the other fringies. It means they oppose Miers, and probably for entirely different reasons than those groups.
I assumed, whether or not you were born then, that you were old enough to get the point. My mistake.
Don't forget the evil Robert Bork!
Nope I'm not old enough to get your mistake, er, point. I'm still learning about history since I had the left NEA version given to me in school.
As to your forced in a corner pick of who I support in WW2, I'm still reading about the Nazi Soviet partnership that they had the convention to celebrate in NYC.
So your example doesn't sell.
But that is changing the subject now isn't? Why are you quoting SDS material to make your points?
I see you're a proud graduate of the Harriet Miers School of Spelling and Punctuation.
If she's pro affirmative action then she doesn't belong on the court, period.
You disgrace yourself with this nonsense.
What logic? You didn't read my post and you are twisting it for your agenda.
READ MY LAST PARAGRAPH.
>>>Make sure if you are not on the side of supporting Miers, it isn't information that came from SDS, Not In Our Name, MoveOn.org, of the NLG.<<<
Look, you can be open with us ~ we're all friends here ~ 'fess up about those lawyers!
If this is the best defense that the pro-Miers side can come up with then they have surely lost.
A typo! The horror! How will anyone understand?
Robert Blake you mean, not Robert Bork. Get up to date with the MSM ~ no one even remembers who Bork was.
We are siding with our conservative principles. Everything else is "background noise", and should be ignored. It's called character, and my conservative beliefs eclipse my belief in President Bush. He's just a frail fallible human just like the rest of us by the way, and the conservative movement is larger than this President. We have to struggle on while he plans his library in a few years.
Who cares? The woman is unqualified for the position and her nomination is an insult to conservatives.
This has to be the dumbest post at FR in a long time. Most liberal groups opposed David Souter when he was nominated, too.
Even Harriet Miers wouldn't be convinced by this arguement!
Correct me if I am misunderstanding you but I think that you are arguing that rather than evaluating Harriet Miers on her merits we instead let Moveon.org decide for us by doing the opposite of whatever they do. I can't do that.
I'll send the memo to Laura Ingraham....she must be a commie, too....and since I've been agreeing with Laura's statements/comments concerning Miers.....I guess that makes me and at least half her listeners commies, as well.
Calpernia was born yesterday, doncha know!
Well, I was leery, but on the fence.
But did you know she supports NUMERICAL QUOTAS?
A typo is when someone spells 'Emglish' instead of 'English.' Using "who's" for 'whose' suggests unfamiliarity with English grammar.
In any case, please inform us whether, had you been a member of the Dallas Bar Association, you would have voted for the resolution "urging Texas law firms to set a goal of hiring one qualified minority lawyer for every 10 new associates."
I'm supporting my own agenda.
"You fight with the army you have." Donald Rumsfeld
"Get up to date with the MSM ~ no one even remembers who Bork was."
I remember who he was. He was the lousy nominee who didn't think that the 2nd amendment referred to an individual right to own firearms.
Yeah, if that happens, they might decide to support President Bush. Then where would we be, voting for Kerry?
I was on that thread. There is not quote supporting quotas. Goals are not quotas.
Dude put down the crackpipe and step away from the keyboard.
"Well, I was leery, but on the fence.
But did you know she supports NUMERICAL QUOTAS? "
There is a difference between the government ordering businesses to hire less qualified people because of their skin color versus what Miers did - suggesting,as a private citizen, that businessmen voluntarily make an effort to hire 10% minorites.
>>>>Goals are not quotas.
Are Prevarications lies?
When goals are ordered, they turn into quotas.
I'm showing where a lot of talking points came from.
Bring back the Un-American Activities Committee! Where is Joe McCarthy now that we need him?
Thank goodness for Calpernia, who has single-handedly unearthed the diabolical plot by which Free Republic has been infiltrated, nay, dominated, by . . . Communists!
Goals are guidelines. They are not the same as the quota criteria of the EOE.
