Obama's Connections to the violent SDS: Bernardine Dohrn

News

The second in a series of posts on President Obama's connections to the violent, far-Left progressive Students for a Democratic Society -- a known terrorist group -- based on a March 2012 feature in The Blaze Magazine titled "Dangerous Birds of a Feather."

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.”
