Skip to comments.Obama's Boys of Summer: A Who's Who of 1968 Radicals Supports the Candidate
Posted on 07/01/2008 2:44:34 PM PDT by T.L.Sink
Backing a major-party candidate for president would have been anathema to Michael Klonsky when the organization he led, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), urged people to spurn elections. Klonsky, whose disgust for mainstream politics led him to launch a new, Maoist Communist Party in the 1970's, today supports Barack Obama so enthusiastically that until recently he was blogging on Obama's campaign website. Klonsky is hardly the only radical supporting Obama. Mark Rudd organized the student strike that shut down Columbia University. Rudd succeeded Klonsky as national SDS leader, presiding over the SDS's metamorphisis into Weathermen and performing "a liason function" for the plot to bomb a Fort Dix soldiers' dance. Today, Rudd renounces bombs, embraces ballots - and supports Obama. Then there's Carl Davidson, who was one of SDS's three elected national officers. Davidson joined Klonsky in rejecting traditional politics for fringe Marxist movements. He helped organize the 2002 rally in which Obama first spoke out against the Iraq war and now serves as the webmaster of Progressives for Obama. Former SDS president Tom Hayden is also in the Obama camp. Klonsky remembers Hayden plotting to spread nails on a highway; another SDS leader recalls Hayden encouraging activists to firebomb police cars. Now Hayden is one of the organizers of Progressives for Obama. Progressives for Obama resembles a Who's Who of SDS luminaries.The group includes Bob Pardun, SDS's education secretary and Paul Buhle, a radical professor who has recently tried to revive SDS. There is also Mickey and Donald Flacks, red-diaper babies and SDS's third president Todd Gitlin.
