A Logical Next Step?


With all this talk, after the Watertown bombings about Home Grown 'student' radicals, shouldn't the media start focusing it's attention where known former radicals are teaching these students?

It isn't a very big step in reasoning to think that some of our children are being radicalized in our schools and colleges so wouldn't it be logical to start looking at the known culprits, the one's that We Know were/are former radicals themselves?

Just to mention a few .. we have: The most famous Weather Underground bombers-cum-professors .. Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (also a former Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at NYU, which must consider bomb-making skills when making its selection), whose infantile politics and tenure on the FBI’s Most Wanted List never dented the confidence of the University of Illinois or Northwestern University.

Kathy Boudin (born May 19, 1943) is an American far left radical who was convicted in 1984 of felony murder for her participation in an armed robbery that resulted in the killing of two police officers and a security guard. She later became a public health expert while in prison. She was released from prison in 2003. She is currently an adjunct professor at Columbia University.

Of course there is also Boudin's fellow Weathermen Underground companion Howard Machtinger.

Machtinger was a professor at North Carolina Central University and Teaching Fellows Director at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill’s School of Education.

Then there is former Black Panther party grandee Ericka Huggins, who is now a professor of women’s studies at California State University, a professor of sociology at Laney and Berkeley City College, and, according to one official biography, a “human rights activist.”

In 2011, students at the University of Kentucky could receive extra credit for attending a lecture by Huggins, described as a “political prisoner and human rights activist.”
(Also alluded involvement in the murder of Fellow Panther Alex Rackley)

Former Weather Underground member Eleanor Raskin, who fled after being indicted for bomb making in the 1970s, is an associate professor at Albany Law School.

After years in hiding, Mark Rudd, a Weather leader who also fled indictment and went “underground,” turned himself in 1977 and was sentenced to two years’ probation. He later taught at Central New Mexico Community College.

These are just a few of what I suspect would be a good starting point in any investigation of our own .. Home Grown radicals!? 

Granted, once you've done the time .. you have paid for your crime 'but' .. do we Really want our children to look to these Professors as teachers and role models?

(Who knows .. Maybe I am now the 'radical'?)
