A little about two of the many members of SDS--a "domestic terrorist group" according to the FBI--that we profile in the March 2012 issue of The Blaze Magazine:

WILLIAM AYERS: It’s hard to imagine Obama’s characterization of Ayers as “just a guy who lives down the street” when you consider the president wrote a dust-jacket endorsement for an Ayers book and worked with him five years on the Woods Fund and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge to award nearly $2 million to the Chicago-based Small Schools Workshop (SSW). The SSW was a joint project of Ayers and Michael Klonsky, another charter SDSer, and its mission, according to National Review’s Andrew McCarthy, is to bring the Leftist revolution into the classroom.

BERNARDINE DOHRN: She outranked her husband Ayers in the early SDS hierarchy, serving as one of 10 National Committee members and the only woman. Dohrn, Ayers and Jeff Jones created the splinter Weather Underground where an FBI informant testified the trio was willing to kill the 25 million Americans they expected to resist their planned overthrow of U.S. capitalism. Then-FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover called Dohrn “the most dangerous woman in America.”

Dohrn and Michelle Obama both worked at Chicago’s Sidley Austin law firm in 1988. Barack Obama, Dohrn and Ayers appeared together at several community events, including one organized by Mrs. Obama in her post at the University of Chicago. Today, Dohrn, an associate professor of law at Northwestern University and founder of its Children and Family Justice Center, supports the 150 “New SDS” chapters in U.S. high schools, colleges and universities, writing, “This is the power and the inspiration of a vast, Left umbrella network with variety and vigor.”
