AT HOME WITH: Bernadine Dohrn; Same Passion, New Tactics (1993)
The New York Times ^ | November 18, 1993 | Susan Chirah

Posted on 08/08/2010 8:34:36 AM PDT by bgill

During the drive home from her office in a battered black Dodge Caravan, she talked easily and passionately of her work and her life... Once home, she emptied the dishwasher and hit the phone to track down her sons. Two of the boys were happy to stay where they were, at the house of friends, but she needed to pick up the 16-year-old... Their sons talk about their years on the run in the manner of any child reciting a well-worn family story ("I was born underground and I was called Z . . ."). But for a real-life taste of what Mr. Ayers calls "movement culture," each summer the couple send the children to a camp where they stay in bunks named after Harriet Tubman and Eugene V. Debs and study subjects like South Africa and the campaign against nuclear power. They named their children after some of their heroes. Their older son, Zayd Osceola Ayers Dohrn, was named in honor of Zayd Shakur, the Black Panther killed in New Jersey during a shootout with police in 1973, and Osceola, the Seminole chief who sheltered runaway slaves. Their 13-year-old, Malik Cochise, takes his names from Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) and the 19th-century Apache chief who fought settlers encroaching on his land.

Notice two things: 1) the article was in the Home and Garden section, and 2) the NYT can’t spell her name.

The spelling of names is a form of capitalist domination that oppresses the revolutionary masses worldwide.She routinely changes the spelling of her name to show solidarity with all oppressed people of the world.

It might not be due to ignorance or accident. There is a chance it was intentionally mis-spelled to prevent searches from finding it. I have seen that tactic practiced here on the web often.

These people are left-wing freaks. For them, bombing police stations and the Pentagon are fond memories, the way other couples might remember a special weekend at a bed-and-breakfast in Vermont.

Obama saw that they were useful allies in the left-wing freak political atmosphere of Hyde Park. So as a state senate candidate, he embraced them. But on a national level such people become liabilities, so he threw them under the bus. The same can be said of Jeremiah Wright.

the Ayers family launched obama into Chicago politics in 1995 - before that, there was a necessary rehab of the image of Ayers/Dohrn and Weather Underground as “antiwar activists”

2 page article, at 2nd link: Bernadine Dohrn “served on panels with Obama” referenced;

Senator helped fund organization that rejects ‘racist’ Israel’s existence

Ayers is married to another notorious Weathermen terrorist,

Bernadine Dohrn, who has also served on panels with Obama. Dohrn was once on the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted List and was

described by J. Edgar Hoover as the “most dangerous woman in America.”

These people were thrown right back into action to continue their treasonous actions. Ayers taught in a pre-school at one time?? They sent their sons to camps that studied Africa and oppression (teaching them how to be good little revolutionaries). I'd like to know where the ‘sons’ are now and what sh*t disturbing activities they're involved with.

I like the part where she exclaims that she was ‘shocked’ at the anger toward her...

What a feakin’ nightmare...and these people seized control of our nation on 11/4/2008.

You seem to imply obama used these folks to climb to the top and has thrown them away

I contend he is pwned by them

Ayers and his radical connections hooked up with the identity-seeking obama at Columbia (or before) and saw someone they could use. Chicago is pwned by the Ayers family. What better place to launch this fool into national politics. Remember Ayers even wrote his autobiography-the one that pays obama's family millions a year still in royalties. The perfect wash.

obama is an Ayers creation. Bernadine Dohrn even steered michelle into obamas life. The perfect angryblack entitled ambitious malleable corruptible luxuryloving beyotch.

and the Days of Rage radicals are NOT not going away, only burrowing deep into the govt bureaucracies and agencies and policy-making circles, with those they have mentored and cultivated for the past 30 years, the wonky angry marxists that draft those 2000 page bills that get passed and signed with no one reading them.

Ayers visits the WH fairly regularly based on released visitor logs. What could a guy like Bill Ayers, preschool teacher, possibly have to say that is of regular top level interest to the office of the potus?

Some excepts from the Documentary, I got it at the library, but it’s probably been sanitized by now;

The Weather Underground - DVD

Synopsis
Sam Green and Bill Siegel’s documentary about a radical group whose stated goal was the violent overthrow of the U.S. government details a valuable chapter in the history of the ‘60s protest movement and leftism in America.

Bernadine Dohrn, “holding my nose and going through with surrender”

Bernadine Dohrn “I remain committed to the struggle ahead”

Bernadine Dohrn “I am not committed to non-violence in any way”

“Chesa Boudin” the son of Ayers associate terrorist Kathy Boudin who copped a plea and went to jail for 20 years after the Brinks robbery and other murders... who Ayers “adopted” and raised...spent time with Hugo Chavez and wrote a book about him (admiring of course)- got a Rhodes scholarship - is now called a “progressive writer”, and I think is at Yale

yet G_d D-mn America, say these wealthy powerful angry arrogant marxists and terrorists.

I think it is they who 'used' him. They found the tool to capture the WH and little Barry was it. Their relationships run much longer and deper than we know. imo Obama didn't throw them under the bus privately..only publicly. In fact, didn't Ayers visit the WH??

You're right, these people are freaks and they probably think that those times were 'the good ole' days'.

“In 1970, Bill Ayers summed up the Weatherman philosophy: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.” (His parents now split the year between Chicago and Palma Valley, California, and they are doing just fine.) Dohrn and Ayers, an education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, live in Hyde Park with their two boys and a third child, the son of Kathy Boudin, another radical who is serving time for a 1981 holdup in Nyack, New York, that left three people dead. Dohrn and Ayers are visible around town in liberal social circles; by almost all accounts of those who know them well, they are a lively, thoughtful, loving couple.”

Amazing how they advocated MURDER of parents, yet now thry try to promote their “family” values. They are still as dangerous as ever. Just new tactics.

Dohrn and Ayers “are also the legal guardians of Chesa Jackson, 13, whose mother, Kathy Boudin, and father, David Gilbert, are in jail for their roles in the 1981 Brink’s robbery, in which a Brink’s guard and two police officers were killed.”

The $1.6 million robbery was a joint operation by Ayer’s Weather Underground and the Black Liberation Army, the openly militant wing of the Black Panthers.

NYT downplays the seriousness of the crime and the depravity of the criminals. Boudin and Gilbert actively participated in the murder of three human beings and intended to murder several more.

Kathy Boudin was paroled in 2003; Gilbert is still in prison where he belongs. Chesa Boudin managed to get into Yale, get a Rhodes scholarship, and to work in Hugo Chavez’ Presidential Palace as an interpreter. No doubt that his radical connections facilitated his access to elite institutions.

Bill Ayers works within the Chicago public education system. Teaching the youth of today the same ideas he held long ago. Are those schools any better with his scholarly influence?? I don’t think so. But Ayers get awards for his work with the schools.

I don’t think Ayers “teaches” any kids, he teaches adults how to scam wealthy foundations and donors out of megagrants to pay for “community organizers” to pursue “social justice” (marxist black liberationist etc) agendas .... in the classroom, and in teacher education courses.

This regime is Ayers’ 40 yr wet dream, obama emmanuel axelrod and jarrett in the WH, Arne Duncan at Education, Holder at AG. And God only knows what radicals burrowed into HHS, Pentagon, CIA, etc...

“Chesa Boudin was born in New York, NY, on August 21, 1980. His parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, were radical anti-war activists and members of the Weather Underground. His mother’s family had a long left-wing history. His great-great-uncle was Louis Boudin, a Marxist theorist, lawyer, and author of the acclaimed Government By Judiciary.[1] His grandfather, attorney Leonard Boudin, had represented such controversial clients as Judith Coplon, Fidel Castro, and Paul Robeson.[2] Chesa Boudin’s great uncle was the famed independent journalist I.F. Stone[3]. Chesa Boudin’s uncle, Michael Boudin, is currently a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.[4]

When Chesa Boudin was 14 months old, his parents were arrested for their role in the fatal Brinks Robbery (1981) in upstate New York. His mother was sentenced to 20 years to life and his father to 75 years to life. Chesa Boudin was adopted by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, and raised as one of their three sons. His mother, Kathy Boudin, was released under parole supervision in 2003.[5]”Wiki-junk

Spann of the progressive cesspool.

It is ironic that Chesa was raised by Bernadine Dohrn after his parents’ imprisonment for the Brinks robery

Bernadine Dohrn was a co-conspirator. At a minimum, she stole the identities used by the Brinks plotters to pull off the heist.

I believe $800K of the Brinks blood money was never recovered. Maybe part of it went to Chesa’s “trust fund”

Here we are back at stolen identities again and bringing down da man. Interesting how the dots connect in that Hyde Park neighborhood, huh.
