Communiqué #1 From The Weatherman Underground
American Daughter ^ | May 21, 1970 | The Berkeley Tribe (Bernardine Dohrn)

Communiqué #1 From The Weatherman Underground

From /The Berkeley Tribe/, May 21, 1970. The Red Mountain Tribe.

Hello. This is Bernardine Dohrn.

I'm going to read A DECLARATION OF A STATE OF WAR.

This is the first communication from the Weatherman underground.

All over the world, people fighting Amerikan imperialism look to Amerika's youth to use our strategic position behind enemy lines to join forces in the destruction of the empire.

Black people have been fighting almost alone for years. We've known that our job is to lead white kids into armed revolution. We never intended to spend the next five or twenty-five years of our lives in jail. Ever since SDS became revolutionary, we've been trying to show how it is possible to overcome the frustration and impotence that comes from trying to reform this system. Kids know the lines are drawn revolution is touching all of our lives. Tens of thousands have learned that protest and marches don't do it. Revolutionary violence is the only way.

Now we are adapting the classic guerrilla strategy of the Viet Cong and the urban guerrilla strategy of the Tupamaros to our own situation here in the most technically advanced country in the world.

Ché taught us that "revolutionaries move like fish in the sea." The alienation and contempt that young people have for this country has created the ocean for this revolution.

The hundreds and thousands of young people who demonstrated in the Sixties against the war and for civil rights grew to hundreds of thousands in the past few weeks actively fighting Nixon's invasion of Cambodia and the attempted genocide against black people. The insanity of Amerikan "justice" has added to its list of atrocities six blacks killed in Augusta, two in Jackson and four white Kent State students, making thousands more into revolutionaries.

The parents of "privileged" kids have been saying for years that the revolution was a game for us. But the war and the racism of this society show that it is too f*****-up. We will never live peaceably under this system.

This was totally true of those who died in the New York townhouse explosion. The third person who was killed there was Terry Robbins, who led the first rebellion at Kent State less than two years ago.

The twelve Weathermen who were indicted for leading last October's riots in Chicago have never left the country. Terry is dead, Linda was captured by a pig informer, but the rest of us move freely in and out of every city and youth scene in this country. We're not hiding out but we're invisible.

There are several hundred members of the Weatherman underground and some of us face more years in jail than the fifty thousand deserters and draft dodgers now in Canada. Already many of them are coming back to join us in the underground or to return to the Man's army and tear it up from inside along with those who never left.

We fight in many ways. Dope is one of our weapons. The laws against marijuana mean that millions of us are outlaws long before we actually split. Guns and grass are united in the youth underground.

Freaks are revolutionaries and revolutionaries are freaks. If you want to find us, this is where we are. In every tribe, commune, dormitory, farmhouse, barracks and townhouse where kids are making love, smoking dope and loading guns—fugitives from Amerikan justice are free to go.

For Diana Oughton, Ted Gold and Terry Robbins, and for all the revolutionaries who are still on the move here, there has been no question for a long time now—we will never go back.

Within the next fourteen days we will attack a symbol or institution of Amerikan injustice. This is the way we celebrate the example of Eldridge Cleaver and H. Rap Brown and all black revolutionaries who first inspired us by their fight behind enemy lines for the liberation of their people.

Never again will they fight alone.

/May 21, 1970/


TOPICS: Front Page News; Government; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: ayhers; obama; terrorism; underground; weather
I thought that this would be a good place to start to see what the Weather Underground is all about, and it seems like a lot of it ties in with Obama's philosphies.

"Fighting Amerikan Imperialism" Check.

"Black Activists" Check (Rev. Wright)

"Che taught us..." Check (Che flags at Obama campaign offices).

The start of Weather Underground was in support of the black revolutionaries in a violent manner. I imagine, that like all of us, Dohrn and her husband Ayhers have grown and learned. And have learned that perhaps the way to change things is from within.

Is there a ‘statute of limitations’ against ‘hate crimes’ or ‘terrorist activities’ like this?

In 1970, Ayers, along with his wife Bernadine Dohrn, were indicted for inciting a riot and conspiracy to bomb government buildings. Dohrn was convicted; Ayers was not. (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,426581,00.html)

In 1980, they turned themselves in. Ayers was not convicted of any crime; Dohrn pled guilty to some charges and later served a few months in jail. (http://news.muckety.com/2008/04/20/1960s-activism-haunts-william-ayers-and-barack-obama/2272)

She should have been executed by hanging by the neck until dead. So should Bill Ayers, they are enemies of this nation and should face traitors justice.

Those who declare war on America are to be shown no mercy period— she and Ayers did and they ought to swing from a tall tall tree.

Joseph Stalin only had one job in his life before becoming a Community Organizer and then a Soviet leader. For a couple of weeks after leaving the Tiflis Seminary Stalin worked as a weatherman recording instrument readings.

Bwaaaaaa-haaaaaaa-haaaaaaa, they just got stoned, got STDs, and never got around to their guns. They blew themselves up with their own IEDs more than the average moron Alqueda did. When they got tired of preaching to each other, they got lawyered up and cut a sweet deal on some very serious raps. Or they waited for the Carter and Clinton pardons.

Now they live off their trust funds, or in some cushy job provided by big-name insiders. They wear designer business clothes, and have the lifestyle of a metrosexual capitalist plutocrat. But they still haven't gotten around to the guns, figuring they can just hire "mercenaries" if push comes to shove.

What they can't admit is that for every one of them, there are 10,000 real Americans, taught either by Uncle Sam, their WW2-vet fathers, or neighbors who are still fighting wars, to cool off their revolutionary wet dreams real fast.

In case no one noticed, while the names may have slipped into obscurity and disuse, the activities and potential for violence haven't. Please take the 15 minutes or so to view the following, and consider the following points that are raised therein:

Forgive me, I am only 40 years old. I don't have a memory of the political climate of the late 60's early 70's. But, reading this in 2008 it seems clear to me that these people were enemies of our Nation, our Constitution, and our way of life.

Why were they not hunted down and killed?

Our Country Deserves Better than Barack Obama for our next president & Commander in Chief.

The Our Country Deserves Better PAC has one objective: to defeat Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. We won't be subtle or vague - America's future is at stake, and it's time someone stood up to Barack Obama and told the American people why this man cannot, and must not, serve as our next Commander in Chief.

We are going to give the American people the truth in no uncertain terms because that is what they expect, but haven't been getting from either the news media or many of our political leaders.

Hunted down and killed? Not the way things were done then or now. It would have made martyrs out of them, anyway.

They have a much more useful purpose now. Hang them around Obama's neck. He has been thick with Ayres and Dohrn for decades. Bring the close association to the front and keep hammering at it. Don't let the NYTimes whitewash end it. These people are indicted domestic terrorists. They are guilty. They have said as much. Tie them to Obama every day until the election.

And, in fact, on 9/11, he was quoted in the New York Times saying, “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” An early organizing meeting for your State Senate campaign was held at his house and your campaign has said you are “friendly.”

Can you explain that relationship for the voters and explain to Democrats why it won’t be a problem?

OBAMA: George, but this is an example of what I’m talking about. This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.

And the notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn’t make much sense, George….

So this kind of game in which anybody who I know, regardless of how flimsy the relationship is, that somehow their ideas could be attributed to me, I think the American people are smarter than that. They’re not going to suggest somehow that that is reflective of my views, because it obviously isn’t.


Notice he doesn’t answer George’s question about his campaign for the Senate being held at Ayres’ house!

In a just world, Ayers and Dorhn should go to sleep wondering every night, if tonight they will be forced to pay for their crimes. They should feel the fear, that tonight, might just be the night that justice is served in a hallway or a living room or with the starting of their car.

Of course that would only happen in a just world

There is no statute of limitations on murder. I wish that Mark Furhman would get on the case of the murder of San Francisco police officer, Brian McDonnell. Dohrn may be absolutely tied to the pipe bomb that killed him.

In looking at some of their more recent interviews (1998, 2001, etc.), Dohrn and Ayers don’t seem unrepentent in the least. Ayers of course is now a teacher - and said “I’ve always considered myself a teacher”.

I imagine he is still teaching Revolution. But now it is in the guise of “community activism”, and their adoration of Black Panther type activists has now shifted to a more clean-cut and articulate black fellow.

Which leads me to the following quote - who said it?

“You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem.”

A: Eldridge Cleaver
B: Barack Hussein Obama
C: All of the above.

(Well okay - who said it first!?)
