What makes someone a terrorist? According to former terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, planting bombs and attempting to kill Americans doesn’t cut it. Participating in your Second Amendment right to bear arms, however, does, especially if you’re one of those evil, racist, extremist tea partiers! In a recent interview, Dohrn hypocritically labeled tea partiers as violent terrorists, conveniently forgetting the litany of terrorist activities she participated in as one of the leaders of the Weathermen, an underground terrorist group in the late 60s and 70s. Watch the video:
While Dohrn might like to pretend that tea parties have been filled with violent terrorists just waiting for the opportunity to assassinate President Obama, reality just doesn’t quite agree with her. Tea parties have been amazingly non-violent, and certainly less violent than the far Left anti-war protests that permeated the eight years of the Bush presidency. The fact that tea partiers are allowed to bring guns to their protests is a testament to just how comfortable most police departments are with them.
Left-wing protests, on the other hand, are no strangers to violence. Riot police are frequently required, with protesters often throwing rocks, garbage, bottles, and in more extreme cases, Molotov cocktails.
And Bernardine Dohrn, terrorist extraordinaire, would know all about that. She showed violent tendencies at a Weathermen war council in 1969, where she reveled in the brutal and horrifying Manson slayings.
Holding her fingers in what became the Weatherman “fork salute,” she said of the bloody murders recently committed by the Manson Family in which the pregnant actress Sharon Tate and a Folgers Coffee heiress and several other inhabitants of a Benedict Canyon mansion were brutally stabbed to death: “Dig it! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them. They even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!” The “War Council” ended with a formal declaration of war against “AmeriKKKa,” always spelled with three K’s to signify the United States’ allegedly ineradicable white racism.
If that talk had never led to action, it would still be outrageous and offensive. Unfortunately, for Dohrn, this was just the tip of the iceberg.
