A couple weeks ago, I wrote about my favorite liberal hypocrite to speak out in favor of gun control: Marilyn Katz, a former SDS radical who once favored improvised explosive devices as a tool of protest.
As it turns out, I spoke too soon.
Meet my new favorite leftist hypocrite who opposes the 2nd Amendment: Weather Underground whack-job Bernadine Dohrn (aka Mrs. Bill Ayers).
Unlike Katz who worked to supply deadly weapons to leftists, Dohrn and her radical buddies weren’t afraid to use them on innocent people:
The Weather central committte was to direct underground bombings nationwide from New York, Chicago, Detroit and Berkeley aimed at police, military, university and commercial targets. There was also talk of assassinations. The Liberation News Service reported, “Part of armed struggle, as Dohrn and others laid it down, is terrorism. Political assassination… and… violence…were put forward as legitimate forms of armed struggle.”
This domestic terrorist whose group was responsible for the bombing of the United States Capitol, the Pentagon and several police stations in New York; this radical who publicly declared a “state of war” against the United States government; this woman who spent three years on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list — she is now telling you that you shouldn’t own a gun.
In an op-ed on Truth-out, Dohrn writes (emphasis mine):
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.
Excuse me while my head explodes.
