Weather Underground Terrorist Bernadine Dohrn Lectures America About Guns
January 17, 2013
Here’s further proof that the American left has brass cojones the size of basketballs.
Bernadine Dohrn, the wife of Bill Ayers, who is herself also a former member of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground, is now joining the chorus of liberals calling for greater gun control.
No word yet on how she feels about bomb control…
Watch Out for Fake Gun Control Reforms
Almost none of us want automatic or semi-automatic weapons in the hands of children or youth. The challenge is to make sure that the push toward a new wave of gun control laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, tragedy does not include the failed cliches of more police in schools, more searches of children and adolescents, or greater criminalization of young people.
We want gun control that sanctions manufacturers, distributors and adults who place, and profit from, deadly weapons in the possession of youth. We want military-style weaponry banned. We want smaller schools with nurses and social workers, librarians and parent volunteers – all of which are shown to contribute to less disruption and less violence. Let’s promote gun-control provisions and regulations that enhance teaching and learning as well as justice and safety for children, not those that will further incarcerate, punish and demonize young people of color. We’ve been there before.
Got that America? Guns in the hands of law abiding Americans is bad and racism or something. It’s totally different if you’re an activist who was just trying to off some imperialist pigs.

For those that don’t know Bernadine Dohrn…..the wife of Terrorist Bill Ayers……Keep reading
Bernadine Dohrn worked with Michelle Obama at Sidley Austin BEFORE Barack Obama arrived there.
Obama and Ayers and his convicted felon terrorist wife, Bernardine Dohrn, were likely connected as early as 1988. In fact, it’s a willing suspension of disbelief to think they were not. Why? Global Labor – When Did Bill Ayers and Barack Obama Meet? has done some mighty research.
Ayers helped organize a major force in the lobbying for that 1988 campaign, the Alliance For Better Chicago Schools, or ABCs. TheDeveloping Communities Project which Obama headed at that time was a member of the ABCs, apparently one of the few members of the ABCs that worked with the black community. Many in the black community knew that teaching, the unions and school administration were one avenue to the middle class for blacks and thus were wary of the reform effort.
Certainly support for “local control” would have been a pre-requisite to allowing Obama to chair, at such a young and untested age, the Annenberg Challenge. Thus, I think we can safely date the beginning of the Obama-Ayers relationship to at least 1988 when the ABCs effort was underway in Chicago schools. That was also when Ayers and Obama would have met up with the future Executive Director of the Annenberg Challenge, who would have been hired by Ayers and Obama, Ken Rolling. Rolling in 1988 was on the staff of the Woods Fund which provided several grants to the school reform effort and to Obama’s Developing Communities Project at that time. Of course, a decade later, in 1999, as is already widely known, Ayers would join Obama on the board of the Woods Fund itself.
The Obama’s, Michelle and Barack, were both employed by the law firm Sidley Austin; so were William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Bernardine Dorhn was refused admission to the New York bar but…
More from Global Labor:…she was hired as a legal clerk by Sidley and Austin, a major Chicago law firm, in their New York office in 1984.
Howard Trienens, then managing partner of the firm, recently told the Chicago Tribune that he arranged the hiring of Dohrn as a favor to his fellow Northwestern University trustee and classmate, Tom Ayers [William Ayers’ father].
Tom Ayers’ firm, Commonwealth Edison, has used Sidley as outside counsel for many years. She later worked in their Chicago office when she and Bill Ayers moved back to Chicago in 1987. She left Sidley in 1988.
Later, both Barack and Michelle Obama were hired by Sidley Austin. I think it ridiculous to assume there was no talk around the office water-cooler about the Ayers.
Still later, Barack Obama went to work for Judson Miner, “a small civil rights law firm in Chicago.”
Miner was also classmates with Bernardine Dohrn at the University of Chicago law school in 1967 where they were both were involved in anti-war activity.
Barack Obama will do most anything to keep this relationship hidden. When you get to the voting booth, or hopefully long before, remember the photo above and Obama’s lack of judgment.
If he really abhorred William Ayers’ past, he still continued to use him to propel his career forward.

**Connection of Michelle Obama and Bernadine Dohrn = Sidley Austin in Chicago.**
Bernadine Dohrn worked at the same law firm as Michelle Obama (Sidley Austin).
Bill Ayers and Valerie Jarrett’s mother are friends.
Valerie Jarrett’s mother, Barbara Taylor Bowman, co-founded the Erickson Institute in Chicago and still serves on its Board of Trustees. Tom Ayers, the father of Bill Ayers, was a one-time fellow trustee of the Institute.According to WorldNet Daily’s Brad O’Leary, the Erickson board also included Bill Ayers’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn. For his part, Bill Ayers called Bowman “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book A Kind and Just Parent, noting that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama.”

Who is this close personal friend Marilyn Katz to whom Valerie Jarrett is so indebted? Marilyn Katz provided “Security” for Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at the 1968 Democratic Convention. Undercover Chicago policeman William Frapolly told prosecutors that during the “Days of Rage”, Marylyn Katz taught the radical black protesters to use “Guerrilla Nails” against Police. They consisted of a cluster of nails sharpened at both ends, and driven through balls.” Police were pelted by golf balls with sharp nails through them that were coated with excrement. Later, Marylyn Katz would relate that her “Guerrilla Nails” were merely “Defensive Weapons” to retaliate against the Police.”
The SDS soon imploded. Bill Ayers – whom Marilyn Katz knew since he was 17 – created the terrorist Weather Underground from its ranks. In 1971-2, Marylyn Katz would lead another segment, the New American Movement (NAM), a combined Leftist organization that included Communist Party USA members from the 1930s. NAM’s primary political text, entitled Basic Marxism: What It Is & How to Use It, revealed the group’s devotion to Gramsci. During the Seventies, NAM ran Socialist “schools” open to the public. The “basic perspective” of the schools was the belief “that a Socialist Revolution is necessary to solve the problems of the U.S.A.” NAM declared that it’s “solidarity with the Communist World grew out of a correct reaction to United States chauvinism.” A 1973 NAM Manifesto declared: “We admire, and draw inspiration from, many accomplishments from the Russian, Chinese, Cuban and Vietnamese Revolutions…as representing very positive steps forward in human history…we deeply value Lenin’s contributions to revolutionary theory and practice…we identify with Lenin’s revolutionary spirit and determination; we agree with his critique of mechanistic determinism and Economism, his writings on the nature of the state, his approach to creating a ‘Revolutionary Alliance of the Oppressed,’ and his treatment of nationalism and imperialism.”
Marilyn Katz, founded the Reproductive Rights National Network in 1977-8. “The long-term goal was to develop an ‘Offensive Movement’ against the Pro-Life Movement that could fight for a more comprehensive set of demands as the conditions for ‘Free Choice,’ including Child Care, National Health-Care, Free College education, and Guaranteed Income.”Sound familiar to Obama’s Schemes today?
NAM’s local chapters merged with Michael Harrington’s Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) in 1983 to form the Democratic Socialists of America. Marilyn Katz became an organizational entrepreneur, founding MK Communications, Inc., a PR firm. Its clients include the ACLU, Amnesty International, Chicagoans Against War & Injustice, Harold Washington 1983-1987 Mayoral Campaign, Lloyd Doggett’s senate campaign, Human Rights Watch, Illinois Campaign for Choice, Illinois Coalition Against the Death Penalty, the Socialist publication “In These Times”, the MacArthur Foundation, Mother Jones, National Community Development Initiative (for the Rockefeller Foundation), UAW Local 719, and numerous City of Chicago accounts.
Marilyn Katz did ‘Spinning’ for the developers of the “Presidential Towers,” a HUD-financed yuppie-heaven which kicked poor working class people out and moved upper class residents into the area. Mayor Daley’s rapprochement with SDS Guerrilla Nail-throwers became most conspicuous in 1996, when he, Marilyn Katz, and the Chicago 7 did PR for the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune reported, even as Daley laid off 1,000 city workers, he gave Katz a five-year contract that could pay as much as $5 million. As part of Katz’s PR work for the city, she wrote the Press Releases for the Chicago Transit Authority, headed by Valerie Jarrett.
Marylyn Katz had other notorious clients: Project Vote, the ACORN Voter Registry that brought Barack Obama to Chicago as a “Communist Organizer”; the Habitat Real Estate Company; The Joyce Foundation, on whose Board of Directors Obama sat; and History Makers, which featured Valerie Jarrett, her mother, and her father-in-law.
Marlyn Katz and Carl Davidson started “Chicagoans Against the War in Iraq” (CAWI). (Carl and Tom Hayden were founders of the infamous Venceremos Brigades, a joint triumph of Cuban Intelligence and the KGB. In 1992, he joined the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism. He has also been active nationally with the Anti-War group United for Peace & Justice. In December 2008, Marylyn Katz was elected to UFPJ’s National Steering Committee.) Katz and Bettylu Saltzman organized the 2002 antiwar demonstrations where Barack Hussein Obama gave speeches opposing the Iraq War, calling it a “stupid” war and a conspiracy. This made Obama the choice of his party’s far Leftist-wing in 2008.
A longtime beneficiary of Democratic spoils, Katz put her new organization “Chicagoans Against the War in Iraq” to work for the Democrats. CAWI – which lists “Allies” like MoveOn.org, Code Pink, International ANSWER, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, and the World Can’t Wait- organized thousands of blacks to register voters in 2003. Katz and Carl Davidson wrote an article, “From Protest to Politics,” urging radicals to support John Kerry. In a blog entry adorned with a picture of Barack Hussein Obama, Carl Davidson urged readers of the CAWI homepage to “tone down their Ultra Leftist agenda, in order to promote a wide spread Left-Progressive Unity.” Carl defended Obama by writing: “Obama is from the Saul Alinsky School of Community Organizing.” Mayor Washington’s Movement he explained was launched by Radical Black Nationalists and Socialist Leftwing Black Democrats. Barack Hussein Obama has two very, accomplished, influential and tough Black Radical women, Valerie Jarrett and Susan Rice as mentors he noted.
Last August, Marilyn Katz and her SDS comrade Don Rose, David Axelrod’s mentor met with ‘In These Times’ to discuss the 40th anniversary of the “Days of Rage”. When asked if they learned anything from the violence, she charged the FBI with having 28 Black Panthers “assassinated,” calling the mythical murders “a wakeup call where we saw the ugly underbelly of our Country.” She then offered her opinion from 40 years’ reflection on the violent rebellion she led: I don’t reject violence as a useful form of Revolution.” Asked whether she regretted her actions “in today’s Age of Terrorism,” she laughed, “I regret nothing.”
Marilyn Katz is not just a friend of Valerie Jarrett’s but also of both Obamas. Barack met Katz through his job at a law firm run by Judd Miner. The New York Times reports Katz “gave him an entry into the Chicago Radical Activist Network: the Black Power Movements that defined Chicago in the 1960s.” Michelle Obama has close ties with Katz
as well. The moment Jarrett introduced Michelle Obama to her friends; Michelle “was immediately accepted into the very radical social circle.”Michelle and Barack enjoy close relations with Leftists who shared their lifestyle, as well as their Communist views and political envolvement.‘These are activists,’ says Marilyn Katz, ‘who talk to their cohorts several times a day.” She describes a May 2008 fundraiser for DSA member Rep. Jan Schakowsky, which Katz attended and Michelle Obama addressed. From their leftist social circle, Katz was welcomed into the Obama campaign. Like Code Pink radical Jodie Evans, Marilyn Katz became a Cash Bundler for Obama, as well as a member of his National Finance Committee. According to Public Citizen, Katz raised over $150,000 for Obama ’08.
Blagojevich writes in his book that Katz contacted him and “said that if I appointed Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate, Obama’s people would get me money from their network of contributors across the country.” Federal investigators say Katz suggested a three-way deal for Blagojevich to appoint Jarrett to the Senate, take a position with the SEIU “Change to Win” Labor Coalition, and then President Obama would bolster the organization. Jarrett however, opted to stay in the White House. Why would she want a demotion? In July, Katz joined Jarrett in Washington at the Obama Administration’s celebration of the 37th anniversary of Title IX. Katz, the unrepentant 1960s Guerrilla Nails tosser, now has a President as her patron and a long history as part of Obama’s inner circle.All three, Barack, Michelle and Valerie are heavily indebted to Marylyn Katz, literally and figuratively, and Marilyn enjoys their warm affections. She is just one of the radical extremists influencing Obama.
