Compliments on your bio page.
How could not have heard of Joanne Chesimard?
Thought there was not an area connected to Obozo that I had not read about. Guess it is because I never spent time studying the Weathermen.
Like Obama's "spiritual adviser" of 20+ years, Jeremiah Wright, the Weather Underground advocated communist-revolutionary "Black Liberation", in Wright's case through an entirely bogus, phony-baloney 'church' movement. They (the Weather Underground) collaborated with the even more dangerous Black Liberation Army and old/original Black Panther Party. All were Maoist. See the 1983 Brinks Truck/triple murder story at my Bio page. There were other murders and maimings committed by the BLA as well, most often of police officers. In fact, it is believed that Bernardine Dohrn (Ayers' wife), in collaboration with the BLA, planted a bomb which killed and maimed police officers in San Fran in the early 70s.
The film writeup below is from a pro-Black Liberation/communist source:
ASSATA (aka Joanne Chesimard)
Perhaps the most wanted woman in the history of the United States.
Assata Shakur/Joanne Chesimard, was questionably arrested and sentenced for killing a cop in the infamous 1973 New Jersey Turnpike shootup of a car carrying Shakur, and two other Black Panthers, one of whom was also killed. Assata received three bullets in the attack. Sentenced to Life, she escaped in 1979 from maximum security prison in NJ to eventually emerge in Cuba under Fidel Castros protection as a political exile. Assatas [Joanne Chesimard] writings and presence in Cuba have brought her a huge following as an icon, a heroine the Che Guevera of Black Liberation a freedom fighter to thousands of young peoples throughout the world. The State of New Jersey still holds a million dollar bounty on her headwanted dead or alive!

Reverend Wright at the National Press Club:
"In the late 1960s, when Dr. James Cone's powerful books burst onto the scene, the term 'black liberation theology' began to be used. I do not in any way disagree with Dr. Cone, nor do I in any way diminish the inimitable and incomparable contributions that he has made and that he continues to make to the field of theology. Jim, incidentally, is a personal friend of mine."
"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006). Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity. AK Press, 95.

From the New York Times, August 24, 2003
"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."
