A former Weather Underground radical who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard now reportedly holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work.

The New York Post reports that Kathy Boudin’s return to respectability after her 2003 parole occurs a week before the release of Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep,” a movie loosely based on the $1.6 million heist.

"...Of the hundreds of students Boudin has taught, Yoshioka said, just three have expressed qualms about her criminal background..."

Tells you all you need to know about the college, and about the quality of people who go there.

Shouldn't surprise anyone.

Leftists have a right to murder anyone for their cause. After our pathetic injustice system gives them a slap on the wrist, they know a cushy university job awaits them. You certainly don’t think a university would hire a God-fearing conservative when they an hire a murdering Leftist, do you?

Why not open a branch in the Middle East (say, Egypt) for Students of International Politics to spend a semester as a foreign student learning about Islamic thought.

And we can ask the Blind Sheik to teach a course there.

So I'm watching the network news over the weekend, Sunday I think, and they have this story about some idiot Princton grad who wrote an article advising women who attend Princton to spend a good portion of their time looking for a husband. Her reasoning was that they would never again be in an environment where they are surrounded by men as intelligent and exceptional as they are. And I thought, "What an arrogant twit!" And if all the Ivy League snots think like she does then it's easy to see how they could hirie a murderer withouth a thought the the "less intelligent and exceptional" people whose lives she ruined.

Then I went to the bedroom where my boyfriend was watching the basketball game and gave him a big hug. When he asked why I almost told him it was because he wasn't intelligent or exceptional (at least by some people's definition) but I thought he might take it the wrong way so I didn't.

“Like most of the WU, she’s another Jewish red-diaper baby. She’ll never change her world view.”

And if they ever got their way and the “revolution” succeeded, in 10 years all the “Jewish red-diaper babies” would be put to the wall and shot. She should ask Leon Trotsky, Lev Kamenev and Grigory Zinoviev how all that works out.

He spoke the wrong rhetoric so he is a villain in their book. If he blew up babies in the name of marxist catch phrases then he would be a national hero with instant tenure at any leftist university in the country.

Why not just offer a course in Terrorism 101!
Seems all the rats congregate there and have knowledge!
What does this chick have to offer as a prisoner or scuse me professor?
I also wonder how she has flown under the radar this long!
Must have been a Gov program we didn’t know about? Hire your terrorist friends to teach our youth?

Call me silly, but somehow I have a problem with someone who has served a prison sentence for murder being a teacher. I don't care about the “they paid their debt”, they are still murderers and shouldn't be teachers. I swear this country has gone stark raving mad!

The robbery and murders were in 1981. Heres a man they almost killed, his arm was almost severed by rifle fire. This solid salt of the earth American was still working as a Brinks man, and was delivering to the WTC on 9/11. He died that day.

It’s evil that Obama’s crowd did this. And in 1981, revolutionary communists, in New York, Bill Ayers crew? Wanna bet Obama was involved with this crowd somehow?

Former Weather Underground radical jailed in 1981 killing reportedly now teaching at Columbia U

Boudin, 69, acted as a getaway driver in the heist and her status as perp-turned-prof outraged the widow of one of her victims, Brinks guard and father of three Peter Paige, who was killed in New York’s Rockland County by her accomplices from the Black Liberation Army on Oct. 20, 1981.

AMBUSH: THE BRINKS ROBBERY OF 1981
[triple murder involving former Weather Underground, Black Liberation Army and Black Panthers members]

Jeral Wayne Williams (AKA Mutulu Shakur)
[stepfather of murdered rapper Tupac Shakur]

“The armored truck’s final stop was the Nanuet National Bank on the second level of the mall. The crew was due to pick up almost $1.6 million dollars in cash from the bank. Inside the truck was an additional several hundred dollars in cash from earlier collections. Pete Paige was assigned to guard his partner as he handled the cash. His partner was assigned to enter the bank, retrieve the moneybags with Paige and place them into the back of the armored vehicle.

Also in the same parking lot that afternoon was a red Chevy van that cruised the area while the guards went inside the mall. The rear and side windows had been covered with plastic so no one could see inside.

Inside the van was a man named Mutulu Shakur, 31, already a veteran of several armored car and bank robberies committed in the Bronx, Mt. Vernon, NY and Paramus, NJ. Shakur was an adopted name. His real name, or slave name as he described it, was Jeral Wayne Williams. He was a black nationalist who ran a financially corrupt acupuncture clinic in Lincoln Hospital in New York City, the first such clinic in the Bronx. Williams was an articulate and persuasive individual who recruited many disciples to follow him. Under the banner of black self-determination, he convinced his accomplices that it was up to them to seize funds from legitimate sources and “redistribute” the money to various black causes.

With each robbery committed, the gang improved on its methods and became more sophisticated. They studied the reaction of guards and the police. They took the time to learn how police handled and investigated such crimes. Then, they made the appropriate adjustments on the next job.

“David J. Gilbert, 37, rented the vehicle that same day in the Bronx. ... Gilbert was a long time member of the Weather Underground and a fugitive from the state of Colorado where he faced charges of assault and possession of explosives.

"The passenger in the front seat of the U Haul was Kathy Boudin [another former Weather Underground member], on the run from the law since the townhouse explosion in 1970. The couple had dropped off their one-year old child with a babysitter in the morning and was waiting for the return of the red van.”

“In the back of the red van were Cecilio ‘Chui’ Ferguson, 35, Samuel Brown AKA Solomon Bouines, 41, Samuel Smith AKA Mtayari Sundiata, 37, and Donald Weems AKA Kuwasi Balagoon, 35.

"There were others present, but it has never been proven who, or how many. - All the men in back of the van were members of a group they called ‘The Family.’ - Most of them had ties to the Black Panthers or the Black Liberation Army, radical political groups that had many violent confrontations with police during the 1970s.”

“[Bernardine] Dohrn [Bill Ayers’ co-terrorist wife] once was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List. She served seven months in prison for refusing to cooperate with a grand jury investigating a 1981 armored truck robbery in Nyack, N.Y., in which two police officers [and 1 Brinks guard] were killed.”

Jay Z and Beyonce were illegally in Cuba (but we know nothing will come of it), but with all this Boudin at Columbia... And the Ayers connection to Obama... and JayZ and Beyonce being BFF’s with the Obama’s...

Two members of the Black Liberation Army that was working with Weather Underground in the Brinks robbery escaped prison and are exiled in Cuba. Coincidence?

I don’t think parents will raise a fuss about this.

REASON: Most students don’t attend her class anyway. She’s just an adjunct professor. Only a few cooky students will attend her class.

I believe most other kids won’t waste their time and money on this POS.
