Osawatomie: the Weather Underground newspaper [prelude to Obama!!]
Zombietime ^ | 11/01/08 | Staff

Posted on 11/01/2008 11:37:33 PM PDT by Enchante

Zomblog has obtained an extremely rare copy of the first issue of Osawatomie, a newspaper published by the Weather Underground in 1975. Noteworthy passages are reproduced below, along with exact transcriptions. The full pages, with each passage in context in high resolution, are found at the bottom of this post.

Much of Osawatomie, which was written at a time when the Dohrn-Ayers wing of the Weather Underground was transitioning from terrorism to “working from the inside” for revolution, concerns itself with the need to encourage “organizers” who will work in “communities” and use “audacity” to bring about “socialism” in America.

Don’t believe me? Read the quotes for yourself, and see them in context on the full pages below.

UNREAL -- a 1975 publication of the Weatherfreaks has been unearthed which lays out a plan to turn to community "organizers" to bring about socialism in America.

It's a blueprint for the career that the Obamanation followed, as a way to bring about radical change with "audacity" from within society's institutions.

Obama is truly like the younger brother of Ayers/Dohrn who has been groomed to take the "long march through the institutions" that the more extreme '60s radicals talked about once they realized they could not pursue their "revolutionary communism" overnight.

Obama is our worst nightmare, a sanitized radical who doesn't scare (yet) Middle America even though he is every bit as far-left in his actual beliefs as Ayers/Dohrn/Wright/Khalidi/Pfleger.

Obama is a LIAR AND A FRAUD.

Wake up, America!!!

“Osawatomie” should be reprinted with the name “Obamatomie” since we now have the phenomenon of radical activist Barack Obama pursuing the 1975 Weather Underground programme right up to the doors of the White House.

Will this radical fraud actually win the Presidency? This is disgusting, revolting, appalling stuff. Few Americans have any real conception of what this guy actually stands for.

And the founder of ACORN was Wade Rathke, emember of Ayers’ Weather Underground. He ‘changed’ his approach to bringing down the nation don’tchaknow. But his goals are still what ACORN was designed to accomplish.

Because the four estate effectively transformed itself into the fifth column, hiding from the American people the facts regarding this ObaMarxist. But its almost huntin’ season for the media traitors.

Osawatomie - also a small town in Kansas - was best known as the “crazy farm” during the 60’s and 70’s and was where all the indigent mentally ill and where what we called the “real crazies” were referred to at the time. Staffed by psychiatrist and psychiatric residents who had their M.D.’s primarily from countries outside the U.S. Interestingly, all Down Syndrome children and adults were also housed there after being judged mentally unsound by the Kansas court system. Still has a state hospital there but no longer know anything about the innerworkings.

It’s getting late in the game, but I’m glad people are starting to highlight the great similarities between the rhetoric of Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers and that of the Obama campaign. Over the past few months I’ve read some of Ayers writings and they are remarkably similar to Obama’s speeches and positions of his staffers. The only difference is that Ayers talks a lot about “change,” but differs in that Ayers is very specific about the outcome of the “change” which is usually some delusional rantings about overthrowing capitalism. Obama just offers “change,” but rarely talks specifically about what the nature of the change is. An example is the domestic “security force” he talks about, but doesn’t tell voters what this “security force” would do and why it’s necessary. Obama’s “change” is ambiguous, but if he has a chance to implement it, I doubt that even people that voted for him will like it.

You’re welcome, Irish Eyes. What a mess, huh. We only have 0bama’s word about when and where he was born. I wonder if his mother even knew who the father was.

When I first read this, it sounded like someone had created the publications out of whole cloth but I did a little digging and the Osawatomie was a a quarterly publication by the Weather Underground. Ebay currently has copies of the first three issues up for bid and the cover does match the one in the blog:


Since this appears to be true, why is it not in Breaking News?

From Wikipedia regarding John Brown - Abolitionist and civil war agitator:

In August, a company of over three hundred Missourians under the command of Major General John W. Reid crossed into Kansas and headed towards Osawatomie, Kansas, intending to destroy the Free State settlements there, and then march on Topeka and Lawrence.[9]

On the morning of August 30, 1856, they shot and killed Brown's son Frederick and his neighbor David Garrison on the outskirts of Pottawatomie. Brown, outnumbered more than seven to one, arranged his 38 men behind natural defenses along the road. Firing from cover, they managed to kill at least 20 of Reid's men and wounded 40 more.[10]

Reid regrouped, ordering his men to dismount and charge into the woods. Brown's small group scattered and fled across the Marais des Cygnes River. One of Brown's men was killed during the retreat and four were captured. While Brown and his surviving men hid in the woods nearby, the Missourians plundered and burned Osawatomie. Despite being defeated, Brown's bravery and military shrewdness in the face of overwhelming odds brought him national attention and made him a hero to many Northern abolitionists,[11] who gave him the nickname "Osawatomie Brown". This incident was dramatized in the play Osawatomie Brown.

I'm wondering about this... in 1981 Obama was at Columbia in NY and somewhere around that time he went to Pakistan... also around this time the Tablighi Jamaat cleric Gilani aka Jilani [founder of Jamaat ul Fuqra, Muslims of America and the podunk International Quranic Open University] was recruiting troubled black inner-city Americans in NY for jihad in Afghanistan; a group of 12 was intercepted in 1982 trying to cross from Pakistan into Afghanistan, for example. More followed who were successful in getting in, at least one guy from Boston. The Tablighi Jamaat group is also associated with Gulbuddin Hekmartyar.

Guess who else is reported to belong to Tablighi Jamaat?

1980s : (TABLIGHI JAMAAT IS FORMED FOUNDED UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF SHEIKH GILANI --SEE FRONT GROUP JAMAAT UL FUQRA, NATION OF ISLAM LEADER LOUIS FARRAKHAN {SEE TRINITY UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST REV JEREMIAH WRIGHT [see OBAMA]} -- also see JAMAAT UL FUQRA/MOA/IQOU aka INTL QURANIC OPEN UNIVESITY) This paper deals with the Tablighi Jamaat (TJ), which is the mother of all the Pakistan-based jehadi organisations active not only in the CARs, Chechnya and Dagestan, but also in other parts of the world… Amongst the alleged members of the TJ (Tablighi Jamaat) in the Muslim community in the US is Mr.Louis Fara Khan, the Black Muslim leader. The TJ operates in the US and the Caribbean directly through its own preachers deputed from Pakistan and also recruited from the Pakistani immigrant community in the US as well as through front organisations such as the Jamaat-ul-Fuqra founded in the 1980s under the leadership of Sheikh Mubarik Ali Gilani, who generally lives in Pakistan, but travels frequently to the US and the Caribbean.

I am wondering if there are other sources linking Farrakhan to this group.

There used to be a Freeper here who knew a lot about Al Fuqra, but unfortunately I haven’t seen any posts on it for a while and I’m not sure of the Freeper’s name. However, I recall that he used to post maps with the locations of Al Fuqra nests (they have a lot of rural compounds in places like Upstate New York and Virginia).

Just one problem...I haven't seen any "Biden babies" in the video.

Hmmm, that's an interesting little detail you've dug up.

So we've got BHO using Weather Underground imagery and training in "community organizing", plus their "long march through the institutions" cookbook for reaching power, on the one hand, and on the other hand, ties to (seemingly unrelated, and even Marxism-hostile) Islamists and black nationalists on the other.

So what is Obama's bottom line? Use of Western radical tools to establish some kind of ethnic-minoritarian dictatorship here in the States? A "hate-Whitey" coalition of the damned -- all the rejects, malcontents, outsiders, minorities, and sociopaths?

If they ever get power, they will kill in huge numbers to keep it. That's been the history of minoritarian regimes like the Alawites in Syria and the Communists in Russia, China, and Cambodia.

Zombietime is rolling today! I read about their logo expose and it really got me thinking:

Did Obama’s Children Touch the Rings of Death? [Scalding FReeper Rant]

[Every voter should know about the rings Ayers and Dohrn wear, about the inspiration of Obama’s logo, and about the TWO radical couples who babysat Obama’s kids.]
